76 < m ETRO m AGAZINE AUGUST 2014 metro-magazine.com Seeing is believing BusCon provides you the opportunity to see all the latest products in the industry, in- cluding close to 70 buses, as well as things you didn't know you needed. With the influx of online purchasing, we have all grown accustomed to shopping and ordering something online, only to be disappointed it wasn't what you expected once it arrives. While online shopping is all the rage, nothing beats seeing the product you need in person. Looking to add alternative-fueled vehicles to be more sustainable or ways to build ef- ficiencies and save money at your operation? You can both find the newest solutions on the show floor and hear firsthand what other operators' experiences have been during in- formative sessions. Perhaps more importantly, if you are ready to make a buy, like adding a new soft- ware solution or equipping your vehicles with a camera system, BusCon affords you the unique opportunity to do it all in one place. You can meet a supplier, see their prod- uct, have your questions answered and make a purchase right on the spot, so you always know what you are getting and who you're doing business with. Gaining perspective A key to growing professionally is continuing to fuel your personal growth. This year's BusCon education sessions will feature plenty of great speakers, including Dr. Craig Manning, who will deliver the keynote address at this year's show. Manning, a former professional tennis player, is an applied performance consultant, whose clients include Red Bull High Performance and U.S. Ski and Snowboarding. He is also the author and founder of the "The Fearless Mind." Manning will discuss how high performance is really not difficult to achieve if you just understand critical laws of the mind and how to adhere to them, meaning the key to suc- cess in life is in the acquisition of skills; not just physical skills, but mental, emotional and even spiritual skills. We all know how important it is to always think of ways to tweak our operations to make the run more efficiently, and after hearing Manning speak, I can as- sure you that you will definitely walk away from his speech with a new perspective and motivation to forge ahead and make changes at your operation more fearlessly. Finally, there are plenty of things to do in the great city of Indianapolis and visiting Bus- Con will allow you to recharge, catch your breath and take a step back to take a look at the big picture. BusCon also gives you a great opportunity to network with your peers. There is no better way to get to know people and make new business relationships then by com- ing out to show to both work hard and play hard.

Te climate of our industry is always changing and it's vital to constantly adapt to stay ahead. Another key to growing business, though, is getting outside of our own silos to see what others are doing that might work for your operation, as well as staying on top of new vehicles and products that could give you more bang for your buck. One great way to do that is by visiting BusCon at Indianapolis' Indiana Convention, Halls F&G, Sept. 15 to 17. publisher's perspective Fuel your personal and professional growth by visiting BusCon Frank Di Giacomo, Publisher frank.digiacomo@ metro-magazine.com "Another key to growing business, though, is getting outside of our own silos to see what others are doing that might work for your operation, as well as staying on top of new vehicles and products that could give you more bang for your buck."
