Mike Filsaime at Affiliate Appreciation Weekend

I still remember being a part of Mike Filsaime’s original Affiliate Appreciation Weekend back in November 2006, but this one definitely tops the other event, or any other event I’ve attended, for that matter!

For this networking extravaganza, Mike Filsaime has specifically invited his 200 top affiliates for a two-day networking bash in appreciation for their support.

And you can leave it to Mike Filsaime to bring the world’s top Internet Marketing leaders all in one room…

That’s right – John Reese, Jeff Johnson, Brad Fallon, Jeff Walker, Russell Brunson, Andy Jenkins, Jason Potash, Howie Schwartz, Jeff Mulligan, Tom Beal, Harris Fellman, Sterling Valentine, Jeff Dedrick, Ross Goldberg, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Jeff Mills, Glen Hopkins, Gary Ambrose, Jason Moffatt, Jon Walker, “Big Jason” Henderson, Shoemoney, Jason James, Keith Wellman, Joel Therien, Brian Koz, Joe Jablonski, Erik Stafford, Rich Cook, Andy Huang, James Lee and more were “in da house” at Affiliate Appreciation Weekend!

Needless to say, Affiliate Appreciation Weekend was a tremendously insane two days of power networking… especially when all of the top players in the industry were right there, ready to exchange business cards.

In fact, in only a matter of a few hours, I not only accrued five new projects for 2010, but I also secured several additional speaking engagements for this year, including seminars all across the United States, as well as UK, Dubai and Spain.

However, that’s not all…

At the private “no cameras allowed” party that closed off Affiliate Appreciation Weekend, Mike Filsaime pulled out all the stops with the top-of-the-line VIP bash at Lavo Nightclub!

In addition to the beautiful ladies of Internet Marketing, including “CoachDeb” Deborah Micek, Joanna Kinsman, Jaime Mintun, Donna Fox, Michelle Galvin, Stacy Makdad, Liz Tomey and Shelby Larson…

Mike Filsaime invited 50 more models to party with us at our VIP area!

Yes, it was the party of all parties…

In respect to the “no cameras allowed” policy, I did not personally take any photos at this private VIP bash at Lavo.

However, I *will* say that photos were indeed taken, and you may be able to see some of the ones that have been allowed to be posted on my Facebook page (that’s if they’re still up!).

All in all, I definitely have to thank my good friend, Mike Filsaime, for putting on the most fun and productive two days I have ever been a part of – Thanks, Mike, and I look forward to another amazing Affiliate Appreciation Weekend in the future!

In February, my international travels continued, taking me to Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and the gorgeous island of Bali in Indonesia.

And right now, I’m in Melbourne enjoying my first visit to Australia, and looking forward to visiting Gold Coast and Sydney before I leave the country.

How would you like to live the rockstar lifestyle with me?

Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live and Vitality in Las Vegas, Nevada

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on October 19th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 519 of the Monte Lago Village Resort at Ken McArthur’sjvAlert Live in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada!

I actually didn’t arrive into Las Vegas until Sunday morning on an early morning flight from San Jose with Lee Collins, Robin Collins and Eric Farewell (which is why I didn’t have any time at all to take any photos!), and when I stepped into the jvAlert Live room, I was immediately greeted in the presence of greatness…

The Las Vegas jvAlert Family included Dave Lakhani, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Paulie Sabol, Donna Fox, Frank Sousa, Mari Smith, Barbara Drazga, Mark Widawer, Erik Stafford, Stephanie Mulac, Jonathan van Clute, Glenn Dietzel, Rick Butts, Carrie Wilkinson, Micheal Savoie, Glen Hopkins, Jason Develvis, Dan Kelly, James Lee, Felicia Slattery and countless others that I can’t remember right now!

It was also Harris Fellman’s birthday this weekend, and he decided to roll out and celebrate Vegas style with his entourage Sam Heyer.

Unfortunately, I could not stay long at jvAlert Live because I also have another obligation with the ViSalus event, Vitality.

With 2000 people filling up the conference with motivation and high energy, we watched inspiration presentations, cash-winning contests and fellow ViSalus business owners take the keys to their brand new BMWs!

It was an exhilarating experience, and I’m glad that I made the trip to Vegas to witness the magic they put on stage.

In the evening, I, along with Lee Collins and Robin Collins, also got the chance to meet up with JP Micek and Deb Micek for dinner.

Even though JP Micek and Deb Micek were exhausted from a long weekend in Vegas, also speaking at another event, we had a nice dinner and great conversation.

In fact, through that conversation, Deb Micek extended me an invitation to become a part of Social Media Simplified, a one day event scheduled for next Monday in Ventura, CA.

Even though it is short notice, I couldn’t miss the chance to share the stage with the best in social media marketing, including Deb Micek, Mari Smith, Linda Taylor, Nancy Marmolejo and the BlogSquad.

So, if you’re in the Southern California area, let me know if you’d like to stop by Social Media Simplified – would definitely enjoy meeting up with you :)

Gary Ambrose And Keith Wellman’s Gateway To Wealth Seminar In Orlando, Florida

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on August 3rd, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 723 of the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Gary Ambrose and Keith Wellman’s Gateway to Wealth Seminar in Orlando, Florida!

We just wrapped up the Gateway to Wealth seminar here in Orlando, and it was yet another content and fun-packed weekend.

In addition to partying non-stop with my roommates for the weekend, Lee and Robin Collins, we also got to hang out quite a bit with fellow Gateway to Wealth seminar speakers and VIP experts, including Mike Filsaime, Matt Bacak, Sean Roach, Kevin Wilke, Alan Bechtold, Jeff Dedrick, Kevin Nations, Alex Nghiem, Eric Stafford, Brian Koz, Joe Lavery and Christine Comaford-Lynch.

As a matter of fact, if you have been following me on Twitter and Twitpics, you’ll know exactly how much fun we’ve been having as they happen as I send the real-time updates from my mobile phone (you can see some of the recent posts on the right sidebars of this page).

But of course, what made the Gateway to Wealth seminar great is not just that we had a lot of fun, but the fact that all the speakers really wanted to help the attendees.

In an effort to maximize value for the Gateway to Wealth seminar audience, the speakers even held a special expert panel session to answer any and all burning questions the audience members have about building their Internet Marketing business.

Expert Panel With Matt Bacak, Mike Filsaime, Jeff Dedrick, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Erik Stafford, Gary Ambrose And Brian Koz

Overall, the consensus among all the attendees is that the Gateway to Wealth seminar was a tremendous success and brought a ton of value, and I know for certain that the speakers enjoyed teaching at this event as well.

Because this weekend is scheduled to be one of my last seminars as a speaker this year (or at least for the next several months), I’m having some withdrawals at the moment, since I’m really going to miss this environment where attendees are so eager to learn and experts are so eager to help.

Live seminars is really a place where entrepreneurs of all levels get together and help each other out, create friendships, build partnerships and make a difference.

If we haven’t had the chance to meet yet at a live event, I’ll only be attending a handful more events this year (some of which have not yet been confirmed).

To join me for my last confirmed event this year, be sure to register for the Three Sides Of Traffic workshop happening next weekend in Long Island, NY, by clicking here.

Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live 2008 in Philadelphia, PA

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on June 8th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 424 of the Radisson Hotel at Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live in Philadelphia, PA!

 Ken McArthur And Simon Leung At jvAlert Live

As much of a jvAlert Live regular as I am, I just realized that it has actually been one whole year since I attended my last jvAlert Live or even seen my very good friend, Ken McArthur!

This makes me a little sad because Ken McArthur and I go way back (in Internet years) – I mean, I met the guy on a cruise in June of 2006 when I was still working at Google, and he invited me to attend jvAlert Live in Philadelphia the following week.

That jvAlert Live event changed my life…

I learned so much and made so many new friends that I was inspired to leave my full-time job at Google just six weeks later.

Ken McArthur and I crossed paths again at my first seminar as a full-time Internet Marketer, where he invited me to speak at his next jvAlert Live in San Diego, and then again at jvAlert Live Orlando, and then again at his Get Your Product Done workshop in Atlanta.

The last time I crossed paths with Ken McArthur was jvAlert Live in Philadelphia 2007, so it was definitely a big change going from hanging out with my good friend several times last year to only once this year.

That’s going to change though, because I’ve decided to work much more closely with Ken McArthur as a mentor and a partner.

Now, moving on to the jvAlert Live event itself, you can tell how high Ken McArthur has taken the level of his seminar by looking at the line-up of speakers…

Taking the stage were Internet Marketing rockstars Yanik Silver, Jeff Johnson, Mike Morgan, Stuart Tan, Alan Bechtold, Keith Wellman, Sanyika Calloway Boyce, Brad Semp and yours truly…

simon leung
As for the VIP line-up, there were no shortage of experts either with panelists Mike Filsaime, Kevin Nations, Frank Sousa, Brian Edmondson, Jason DeVelvis, Rachel Rofe, Jay White, Bob Jenkins, Larry Benet, Warren Whitlock, Jeff Dedrick, Erik Stafford, Ross Goldberg, Jeff Wark, Lori Steffan, Dr. Ron Capps, Michael Angier, Phil Basten, Jane Marks and countless others.

Needless to say, the networking was amazing, and I’d be surprised at anyone who didn’t walk away from jvAlert Live with at least one six figure a year business idea.

Because I’m familiar with the caliber of the events that Ken McArthur puts on, I also saw this as an opportunity to enrich my top trainer, Kevin Finney, and also an up-and-coming copywriting superstar, James Lee, by inviting them to attend the same event that changed my life exactly two years ago.

Kevin Finney and James Lee both graciously accepted, and by the end of the weekend – although evidently wiped out as you can see in the photo below – made the most of the event by networking their butts off and attested that it was a life changing experience for them as well.

Quite honestly, if you’ve never been to a jvAlert Live before or haven’t been to one for a while, you don’t know what kind of value you’re missing out on because each and every jvAlert Live is unique, and if you miss one, you’ve missed out on a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

I know I missed out on a lot of opportunities I’ll never be able to get back by not attending jvAlert Live 2007 Long Beach (I was booked for a Mark Hendricks event in Atlanta) and jvAlert Live 2008 Orlando (I was in Asia at the time)…

But I know that from now on, I’m going to try my best to make it to every jvAlert Live - especially the next one – because it’s going to be in Las Vegas!

So mark your calendars for October 17th, 18th and 19th for the next life-changing jvAlert Live, and I look forward to seeing you then in Las Vegas :)
