To say there is a lot going on around here would be a gross understatement!
It can be overwhelming for someone who is supposed to be focused on recovery and taking it easy. But the urge to remain relevant and contribute is relentless. It won’t go away, and that’s OK, I guess. Because, it’s what has me focusing on a podcast interview I’ll be doing tomorrow at 10:00 AM PST, which will go out live from AAIW – the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week exposition, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The interview is with Tom Dorsey of AutoVitals and their Digital ShopTalk Radio community on Facebook. I’m excited because we’ll be talking about the importance of community and the role events like AAIW can play in accelerating the journey toward success. We’ll also be addressing the importance of career development as well as the importance of tools like, Misfire: What to Do When Things Aren’t Running on All Cylinders.
While the interview will be live from Las Vegas, I’ll be participating remotely from my office here at home. One of the largest Shows in Vegas is not the place you want to be without an immune system and that’s tough!
You see I started attending Industry Week almost thirty-five years ago, so the urge to be there is strong. The frustration associated with not being there is every bit as hard!
An event like AAIW, which combines AAPEX and SEMA, is where industry professionals go to learn, grow, network and contribute. Where you connect with old friends and make new ones.
Feeling connected is hard — almost, impossible — when you can’t be there.
I’m hoping being there remotely with all of you will make it somehow a bit easier.
