Nothing Happens by Itself

Author Karl W. Palachuk has a motto for his business and life: Nothing Happens by Itself. Basically, this is a reminder that planning, preparing, scheming, and getting your mind set for success are all important – but they mean nothing until you take action.

This is important because many business owners go to conferences, read books, take classes, go to trainings and never implement anything. No amount of time, effort, and energy that you spend educating yourself will improve you unless you add actions to the list.

You have to actually do something. You have to implement the things that you’ve learned. You have to take action to move things ahead.

This year’s conference will give you some great information and strategies for making meaningful change in your business.

Small IT companies face greater challenges than ever. We are facing a difficult hiring market in the middle of a very uncertain economy. We are competing for resources and clients more than ever. And government regulation is growing all the time.

You need a plan.

But, more importantly, you need a plan of action. This year’s speakers will all focus on hand-on actions you can take to improve your business and be more competitive in the years ahead.

What happens if I don't do anything? Nothing.

Let's do this

The Time is Right

The best time to make changes in your business for the 2020’s was last year. The second best time is right now!

In the technology sector, we are constantly reminded that change is unrelenting. But we’re also just small businesses, working our way through the global, and local changes that all businesses deal with. AND, more importantly, our clients are mostly small- and medium-sized businesses facing the same challenges.

IT consultants are uniquely positioned to help our clients thrive in the years ahead. We understand tech. We understand the business environment. And we understand the greatest challenges our clients face today: The double threats of cyber attacks and government regulation.

This conference focuses on the processes and procedures – and actions – you need to be successful going forward. Our goal is to provide you with actionable advice, and the strategies to help both you and your clients thrive in the years ahead.

Anyone can be healthy. Any business can thrive, but you need to take action.
