Next week in Houston Texas, Tami Siewruk (@multifamilypro) will be hosting Brainstorming Sessions: Stellar Solutions. Within the multifamily industry there has been so much positive chatter about this event, hence the reason why I decided to write this today.
This year has been an amazing learning curve for me as I made a huge career transfer from 12 years as a general manager of floral import company to the multifamily industry to this. The general business concerns are much the same, marketing, customer service, ROI, NOI etc. However the direct application was far different. As my boss Mechelle Flowers put it, I will have to learn the lingo. How true that was! Learning expressions such as curb appeal, ILS, CPM, Fair Housing, Leasing Professional and many others was an intriguing educational challenge. (Side note I was an assistant property manager for a shopping mall at age 16 J )
If I was to even try and list all of the professionals who have helped me this year, this blog would never end. What I can broadcast to you is this simple statement: You know who you are, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Thank you for recognizing where I needed help and answering my questions and being there for me.
So as I prepare for this event next week the key word I thought of this morning was Jubilation! I am very much looking forward to personally meeting everyone and getting that face to face connection. I am looking forward to listening to the various sessions that will provide insight and ideas on many of the key topics that the multifamily industry wrestles with. Most of all I am looking forward to my continued growth as a professional in the multifamily industry as a result of next week’s event.
One of my learning curves in blogging is writing in a way that inspires people to comment. I know I have a ways to go! What I would like to hear from my readers is what they are looking forward to at next week’s conference. I can’t wait to meet everyone! See you soon.
