I know you’re feeling it too… summit season is here. And if you’re anything like me, you’re a sucker for all of it and sign up to more than you can probably handle. And you might even try to squeeze in as many presentations as possible in your already limited schedule to learn as much as you can.
But what happens when the summit is over? Hopefully something because if it’s nothing, then nothing will change. So in this episode, we’re talking about what you should do after you’ve attended a summit to ensure you get real results in your business.

Summit Season is Here
Hey, hey. Welcome back to the Cheerful Productive Chats Podcast, episode 20. Now tell me, do you feel it in the year? Can you feel that we are literally in the middle of summit season?
And yes, I contributed to this. I just got through hosting my very first summit and, oh my goodness. It was so much fun.
It’s like a feeling of relief that it’s over because I was pretty tired, but also a little sad because there was so much engagement, so much fun, just so much of everything. And that’s what I love about summits. It’s that you can really get to connect with other attendees. You get to learn so much. And it just really brings on this community of well community.
I don’t know how else to explain it. However, there are so many summits out there. And so I know that you might be either attending them all, or you might be picking and choosing the ones that you attend.
But the point is that this doesn’t happen all the time, but when it does, it’s kind of cutting into the time that you already have. You might be limited on time and now you’re kind of having to figure out when and where and how you’re going to be able to watch these summit presentations.
So if this is you, then you’re definitely gonna want to go check out my Prep for Summit Success as an Attendee course at cheerstoproductivity.com/prep to really help you get the absolute most out of every single summit that you attend, regardless if you stay with your free or if you upgrade your pass.

What To Do When the Summit Ends
So now that you’ve attended a summit or maybe multiple summits, or maybe you’re about to attend a summit, what do you do afterwards?
Like once the summit is over, all of that community that we kind of talked about, kind of stops, right? The Facebook groups closed. There’s no more presentations. And it’s just not the same. So, what do you do next?
Make Time to Implement
Well, something that we covered a lot on the final day of my summit last week was to make time to implement. You need to make time to implement what you’ve learned to actually do the actions that the presentations shared with you, for you to do. Just make time to do the thing or things that were covered throughout the summit week.
So something that I always say is that nothing changes if nothing changes. And this means that if you attended a summit, you’re likely trying to change something in your business. But if you do nothing at all, then nothing is going to change.
So you definitely need to do the thing, make time to implement so that way things can change in your business. And so that way you can move forward with whatever it is that you want to do or whatever it is that you learned.
Don’t “Do It All” Now
However, there is a word of caution here, and that is don’t try to implement everything at once. I know that I am so guilty of this. Like, I get so excited. I get so excited when I learned something and I immediately want to go and do it right away. Especially when I was fresh in my mind. I’m like, yes, I can do this. I can do this. I can do this!
And you quickly realize that even though it might seem like a small task, a small thing, it’s actually something that has several, several tasks. It might take longer than what you thought it did. So don’t try to implement everything at once. Okay.
So you’re definitely going to want to figure out what priorities you have, which
presentations you want to implement next and don’t try to implement everything. Okay.
Set yourself some reminders to come back and implement some later. It’s okay that you just learned all of this information and that you’ve set some aside for now. It’s even okay if you choose to never come back and revisit some other presentations, maybe that you already know about, or you just kind of got confirmation that you’re doing it the right way.
It’s okay to not reference those notes, but the ones that you do want to take action on, it’s okay for you to take action on them later as long as you’re taking action on something now. Okay.
So set yourself some reminders to come back and implement some of those presentation action steps later. But the most important thing here is that you need to make time to implement. Make the time to take the action from every presentation that you want to get something out of.
Make Time to Learn
You also need to make time to learn new things. So whether you attend more summits, whether this is the only summit that you’re going to attend, whether this is something that you revisit back in the future, you still need to make time to learn new things.
And you can make, or find time to attend more summits if you wanted to. If that’s you then go listen to my very first bonus episode cause I talk about that.
But when I say keep learning new things, is that even though the presentation shared one thing, you might’ve grabbed that speaker freebie. Well keep learning from them. Keep learning from that speaker.
They probably talk about a lot of things that are so similar to what they shared in their presentation. And you’re going to need to make time to implement that too. Because something that they share in their email or in another YouTube video or in an Instagram reel or whatever, a blog post, whatever, might be another step that you can just combine with the action step that was shared in their presentation.
So, if you did grab a speaker’s freebie, then I would recommend not unsubscribing right away. Because if you just grab a freebie and you instantly unsubscribe, then you’re not really going to end up getting the value and the transformation that you’re wanting, because you literally just grabbed it, put it to the side and now moved on. Right.
They might be able to help you get to that next step, even if you’re just sticking around for a little bit longer and trying to see if you can actually make a connection with this person.
Make the Time, Period.
So make time to do all of these different things. Okay. No one is going to give you the time and if you don’t make the time to do all the things that you want to do, then the time won’t come.
We all have 24 hours. Yes. We all have different circumstances, different situations, and that’s why it’s going to be okay if it takes a little bit longer for you to get a certain action done or for you to achieve a result that you really want to achieve. All of that is okay, but you still need to make the time because the time is not just going to find you.
So that is my little pep talk of today. And because I know that there’s still, so, so many summits still happening and is something that I highly doubt is going to go away thanks to Krista’s summit accelerator boom.
And if you don’t know who that is, she’s like the Summit in a Box person. I definitely don’t recommend hosting your own summit without her. But because she has created this boom, in the online space, the summits are not going to go away anytime soon.
So definitely be sure to check out my course Prep for Summit Success as an Attendee to ensure that you get the absolute most from attending virtual summits whether it’s with a free or an upgraded pass.
Current students are saying that this course has tremendously changed their summit experiences and has allowed them to be a more active attendee, even with the little time in their hands. So head over to cheerstoproductivity.com/prep to learn more.
