114: An Embarrassing Confession About This Year’s Tribe Conference

Last year, I was scared when we launched the Tribe Conference. My team and I had very little experience hosting events. We had no budget. And we had no idea what to expect. This year, I’m still afraid, but for different reasons.

The first Tribe Conference went extremely well. The experience far exceeded our expectations. And the attendees not only enjoyed themselves, but many of them also fulfilled goals afterward they previously thought were unattainable.

With the experience of the first Tribe Conference under our belt, we’ve set our expectations high for this year’s event. We’re staring down the fear of a sophomore slump. And we’re going full speed ahead in creating an even better experience for participants.

This week on The Portfolio Life, Andy Traub and I talk about how this event was created to help writers, artists, and creative entrepreneurs grow their craft and get the attention their work deserves.

Listen in as we go behind-the-scenes of the upcoming Tribe Conference. We share the fears we’re overcoming, why this conference is more like a workshop, and how this event will help you find your voice, build your platform, and go pro with your dream.

    Hi, I received an email from Matt Loomis about your conference (was already familiar with you!). But what are alumni tickets? Does that mean one has to have attended in the past to join the next conference? Thank you!
