This article was written by MSBA Co-Founder, Joanna Williamson. This is the first of a two part series detailing her experience as a Military Entrepreneur Delegate at Inc. Magazine’s 2012 GrowCo conference.
If there is anything I have become über sensitive to in recent years, it’s military families as the poster child for feel good/do something campaigns that eventually amount to a PR scheme for the organization and not a whole hill of beans for military families. So when I met Natalie Thomas of Inc. Magazine and she mentioned their Military Entrepreneur program, I was open but naturally suspicious. The Military Entrepreneur program was to select 20 delegates to attend Inc.’s GrowCo 2012 conference. The entire conference would be comp’ed, you just had to get yourself there and pay for lodging and a couple of meals outside of the conference. Fair enough.
Still, I was unsure just how the conference was going to help me address some overwhelming issues when it comes to owning my business with a continually changing headquarters address. But maybe there would be something there for MSBA, and for our MSBA members, I’ll go just about anywhere to sit through just about anything. I sent in my application.
I knew I was in for something good when the list of delegates came out and a few days later, the itinerary.
