This year, I’ve been overwhelmed with juggling my website, freelance writing as well as personal/family life that I’ve only had the opportunity to attend just one conference. Just ONE… and it wasn’t for the entire duration of it either but even one day inspired me tremendously.

With so many amazing conferences taking place in Toronto throughout the year, there is one that seems mandatory for any small business. The Art of Small Business is one of the several successful conferences run by The Art Of, a leading media and events company which focuses on providing business professionals with all the right tools, techniques and knowledge in order to succeed in today’s marketplace.

The Art of Small Business presented by Visa is coming up this October and will feature internationally renowned bestselling authors and thought leaders. 1,300 attendees from Canada’s up and coming small businesses will attend the conference.
