One of the best ways of finding success in the note industry is networking. It offers opportunities for education and mentorship, ways to network with other investors to find deals, and to promote your business and what you do. And while there are some great online networking opportunities in the form of social media and groups, there is one place that has all of those things…
….note industry conventions.
Luckily, not all note industry conferences are created the same. Some offer multi-day experiences, some require travel, some are online, some have free to attend options, and some are spread out over time via speaker series. It’s all about finding the one that will work for you, your budget, and your goals in the note industry.
So, without further adieu, here are some noteworthy conventions for note buyers.
