LDI reminds me that there are so many things I love and hate about this industry we call our home. I hate the hours; I love the payoff. I hate the exhaustion; I love the camaraderie that occurs between people that don’t normally play well with others. The one thing that I love more than any of it is the people of this business. The people make LDI for me, every single time we trek our rear ends to the desert for our industry’s prom.
I walked around taking as many “obligatory LDI selfies” as I could. I took a bunch near our booth, and yes Jaybles, some of these aren’t selfies.
I missed seeing hundreds of people. This is the standard for LDI. Next year I’ll miss more hundreds of people. You have to make these shows focus on who you DO get to see! You’ll always see who you missed next year!
