What our attendees are saying about IN³:

"IN³ by The Next Steps was a phenomenal training and networking event! The positive attitude and excitement from everyone in attendance really energized the room for great discussions and networking between tables. The presenters were all fabulous and I had so many great take-aways. I am looking forward to the next event!" Allyson L., Realtor

"IN³ rocked my socks!! I went in thinking I might pick up one or two things, but it would probably be information I'd already heard before... Boy was I wrong! I learned so much in only a few short hours and I made new friends. The value for the price you pay is incredible!" ~Becky S., Independent Damsel Pro

"As an educator, professional development is an expectation and is provided regularly. In the direct sales world, regular trainings are offered through the regional teams and corporate office. But as an entrepreneur who is completely on her own starting a business, it's up to me to take responsibility for my training and growth. IN³ was just what I needed! It allowed me to network with other small business owners and receive valuable training that is relevant to my needs. I'm excited for the next IN³ event and look forward to learning and growing more with the help of The Next Steps, LLC." ~Melissa, S., Owner, Creations by MJ, LLC

"I found a lot of value in attending IN³. The organizers did a fantastic job with the layout. Having attendees move to different tables to discuss prompted business subjects was a wonderful way to encourage bonding with other attendees by helping and being helped on the subject matter. The speakers were great and having those breaks to interact at the different tables made the timing of the event flow. The food was delicious and getting an updated headshot is a lasting benefit of attending." Marcia Sheehan, Founder, Charmed Cardinals

"This was my first direct sales training conference I have been too that was not run by my company, and I loved it! Hearing people from other companies and talking about how they work their business was very helpful. I also loved the ability to network with local entrepreneurs. Sincerely took a lot away from this conference that I plan to incorporate into my own business!" ~Gina D., Team Leader/Wine Guide, Traveling Vineyard
