What They Said About MIC'17
Influencer was a first of a kind experience, blending military branded, military-themed, & military or spouse owned businesses into a singular experience. As a transition coach, I gained a powerful & insightful network of peers & mentors to help me expand my practice.
Travis Scott Collier
Command Your Transition
“Since attending the Military Influencer Conference, I have made an incredible amount of new connections that have truly helped me skyrocket my business. New clients, guest appearances, interviews, connections, resources, and new friends made it well worth the trip.”
The Military Influencer conference was truly life-changing for me. More so than graduating from West Point! It was the first time I took 100% responsibility for my future. It allowed me to awaken not just my own true potential, but the potential to share ideas and grow together as a community. It spawned a business opportunity that I never saw coming yet was inside me ALL along but couldn't manifest until I met this tribe. Love you all! Go Army ;)
Be Financially Fit
"I departed the 2018 MIC in Dallas inspired by community, content, connections and, in some instances, new clients. An advantage of attending this annual fall conference is that the attendee can directly transfer their MIC experience into next year’s strategic planning processes and related goals."
Vet 2 Biz Life
The MIC helped me define myself as a professional and know the value of my work. It led to several new contracts and opportunities. But even more importantly, it demonstrated that there is room in this community for everyone-- big well-known brands, new start-up companies, freelancers, bloggers, and entrepreneurs. Everyone was tremendously supportive of others!
Lizann Prosser Lightfoot
"The nation's largest gathering of military entrepreneurs & influencers. I've found my tribe. Again."
