Welcome back to episode #313! I admit it! I am a total nerd. Are you one too?! It’s funny how when we are younger we would never want the label of nerd, but now so many of us claim it with pride! Whether it be attending a conference, completing an online course, or even a listening to podcast…we are all in! We want to learn as much as possible!

But what if that isn’t enough? What if there is more to just learning? What if just learning can actually be more crippling than empowering? I know we are all familiar with the quote “Knowledge is power,” but it’s more than knowledge that we need…You have to actually do something with the knowledge you are taking in or it cannot be powerful in your life and business…Which is why today in today’s episode I am bringing in my good friend April Perry! April is going to cover two simple concepts with us that will help us solve the information overload problem and bring freedom and power to our life and business!

“You need to communicate what you learned at a conference to the other people who help you succeed…” At minute 0:36, I’m introducing you to April and she dives into sharing her framework for starting to build systems after attending an event. She is giving us all the tips for what we should do before going to an event or conference and her genius way of organizing her notes!

“We don’t ever want to come home with piles…” At 12:37, we’re talking about making connections and what to do instead of collecting a pile of business cards. April is sharing the program she uses to organize all of her notes that will be a game changer!

“When you have a flood of ideas and when you have a purpose in your life…” At minute 18:34, April shares what she does every week to make sure everything is getting done and how to prioritize everything on our to-do list. Plus we talk about why it’s important to acknowledge what you’ve learned and took away from conferences and events.

“We don’t often acknowledge how much we’ve committed to do…” At 26:12, April is telling us about 4 parts of building a command central to get you started and organized.
