I\’m back from a 10-day vacation to Florida and the Western Caribbean (I even swam with stingrays at Disneys Castaway Cay). I am well-rested and eager to spend more time promoting entrepreneurship. This week I have several important things on my calendar.
Tomorrow at 1 pm MST I will be doing another Conference Call University teleseminar on entrepreneurship. Normally listeners pay to join these conference calls where we answer questions submitted by attendees.
But tomorrow we are offering free registration. Please visit http://www.learnfrompaulallen.com to sign up. Space is limited, so sign up now.
Later in the week Corporate Alliance is holding its three-day Reunion Summit, where more than 200 business owners/managers from Utah will be networking and deepening their relationships with one another. I love the culture that Corporate Alliance promotes.
Thursday I have been asked to speak at the Utah Valley Leadership Summit at Sundance from 8:15-8:45 am. I\’m excited to talk with more than 100 business leaders about the state of entrepreneurship in Utah county and to talk about the role the media, government and educational institutions can play in promoting it.
Thursday afternoon my BYU lecture will cover pay-per-click marketing and search engine optimization–two of the best ways to bring visitors to your web site.
Finally, we are days away from opening up the new Provo Labs Academy on 9th east in Provo, across the street from BYU. Our internet access (including wireless) and phone systems should be ready by the end of the week. Our library is being organized and our conference room is being prepared. Most of our workstations should be furnished and ready to rent by next Monday. I\’m working on the training curriculum and guest lecture calendar. This is going to be a lot of fun.
I recently blogged about the reasons that entrepreneurs give for wanting to join the Provo Labs Academy:
The #1 reason for people wanting to join the Academy was to be close to other entrepreneurs! 2nd was internet marketing training. And #3 was the location.
We hope to have 50 entrepreneurs in the Academy by the end of the year. I\’ll post the training topics soon and also the list of confirmed guest speakers, so you can see even more reasons to join.
And for those of you who live hundreds or thousands of miles away from our entrepreneurial paradise here in Provo, Utah, there\’s always the Conference Call University. Remember the free call tomorrow at 1 pm MST.
