The president of The Carvonis Group, Krystoff Carvonis, just returned from an incredible trip to Cancun, Mexico. The R&R event, hosted annually, was held this year at the Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort. The conference draws some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the industry; and of course, it provides an opportunity to do what we do best: “work hard” (i.e. do some intensive learning and networking), and then “play hard” (i.e. kick back and enjoy the tropics).
The conference kicked off with a general session and some interesting speeches. One of the most impactful demonstrations was by a successful businesswoman who had just received a big promotion at her firm. She explained that momentum is the force that keeps us going and helps us grow. She related it to a push-up contest that she initiated between several entrepreneurs in attendance. Some of the participants stopped doing push-ups when they got tired. Then, by contrast, a mentor of The Carvonis Group did his pushups all in a row without stopping. The speaker explained that it was all about momentum–the same force that is needed to build a successful business.
With the business portion over, it was time to relax and have some fun. In between the daytime pool and beach activities, The Carvonis Group took part in a volleyball tournament benefitting Operation Smile. The team didn’t make it past the first round, but they were glad to make a contribution to the great cause.
Saturday night featured a traditional Mexican-themed dinner with a live band, a faux-blue-man group, and a lip-syncing contest. Krystoff and fellow entrepreneurs enjoyed some margaritas by the Caribbean sea while catching up with old friends and enjoying great music.
Sunday’s Cancun adventures included a jungle tour, speed-boating through a lagoon, and snorkeling in the ocean; capped off with a delicious dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse.
It was all-in-all a great getaway. Krystoff Carvonis, the president of The Carvonis Group summarized his experience: “The best part for me was to being able to network with a lot of new entrepreneurs, as well as those who have a lot of experience… all while having fun by the pool.” Undoubtedly a successful event, it was great to see all of the hardworking individuals in our industry get to spend a few days of well-deserved rest and relaxation.
