Hello from the Lake Conference Center at the Doubletree Resort Orlando for Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live! in Orlando, Florida!

Simon Leung at jvAlert Live! 2010 Orlando

As always, Ken McArthur has put on another spectacular learning and networking environment where we could meet new friends and reconnect with old ones, while creating an intimate enough atmosphere for everyone to feel comfortable getting to know each other better.

Every time I attend a jvAlert Live! event, I always enjoy seeing my friends and have a great time meeting new faces as well, which is why I try to make my way to as many of them as I can, and usually succeed in reuniting with the jvAlert family at least once a year.

This time, Ken McArthur has put together another powerhouse line-up of speakers – Sterling Valentine, Frank Sousa, Tom Beal, Robert Puddy, John Kremer, Devin Michaels, Adam Urbanski and Joey Smith, along with Lunch Series speakers Ross Goldberg, Nick Nalton, Elsom Eldridge and Mark Eldridge.

And of course, the networking was amazing with a crew of VIP experts as well as up-and-coming Internet Marketing superstars – Mark Hendricks, Jason Oman, Andy Huang, Rhonda Cort, Stefanie Hartman, Mike Weseley, Jani Ghaffor, Chris Moos, Micheal Savoie, Ryan Magin, Warren Yip, Chester Wayne, Kim Truong, Nadia Digilov, Tyler Patton, Chantal Patton, Jonathan Freeman and many others.

If you haven’t had the chance to attend a Ken McArthur event and meet the great friends we call family, or if you have and feel like it’s time for a reunion, then it’s time to do yourself a favor and take advantage of two amazing opportunities to make a difference in your business and your life.

The Impact Event 2010 in San Diego, CA – March 19th to 21st

jvAlert Live! 2010 in Philadelphia, PA – May 14th to 16th

Hope to see you in San Diego and Philadelphia in the next few months!

Internet Marketers Dream Cruise 2010

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Travel, Updates on January 18th, 2010 | No Comments

Hello from Cabin 2279 aboard the Carnival Dream, our latest and largest ship yet for Mike Filsaime’s annual Internet Marketers Cruise!

Internet Marketers Cruise 2010 (Click on photo to enlarge)

Every year since 2006, I have been cruising with Mike Filsaime and a group of our best Internet Marketing buddies, starting with just about a dozen or two of our closest inner circle friends and growing that to 436 Internet Marketers that cruised with us this year!

(You can learn more about how you can join us for Internet Marketers Cruise 2011 at the end of this post…)

As always, the Internet Marketers Cruise was organized by “Captain Lou” Edwards, and along with Mike Filsaime, Tom Beal and Donna Fox, I personally had an amazing time creating my own million-dollar mastermind vacation with my team – Andy Huang, James Lee, James Delong and Lasse Rouhiainen.

And what better way to kick off 2010 than a cruise to the Exotic Caribbeans, setting sail from Port Canaveral in Orlando to Cozumel, Roatan, Belize City and Costa Maya in Mexico.

This year on the Internet Marketers Cruise, we reunited with many of our previous cruising buddies, including Deborah Micek, JP Micek, Armando Montelongo, Veronica Montelongo, Joel Therien, Illona Therien, Mike Morgan, Holly Morgan, Jeff Dedrick, Frank Rumbauskas, Dana Rumbauskas, Ross Goldberg, Bob “the Teacher” Jenkins, Howard Tiano, Cynthia Tiano, Jennie Armato, Tom Bell, Adam Gilad, Max Action, Eelco de Boer, Gary Byrne, Michelle Galvin, Alex Nghiem, Frank Sousa, Robert Puddy, Adam Lowe, Tina Truong, Reed Floren, Chris Zavadowski, Odinn Sorensen, Tracy Repchuk, Willliam Lee, Vince Mitchell, Kelly Mitchell, Mike Deiure, Wendy Joy Hart, Sharon Worsley, Jon Benson, Scott Hall, Cindy Battye, Phyllis Eskow and Martyne Lo Russo.

Then, there are the hundreds of new Internet Marketers Cruise faces that I can’t possibly all mention, but we did get to meet and spend some quality time with fellow Internet Marketers Kirt Christensen, Jon Walker, Matt Bacak, Kevin Wilke, David Frey, Brent Hodgson, Mike Evans, Caleb Jennings, Rhonda Cort, Shelby Larson, Heather Sneed, Lucius Kern, Jimmy Sweeny, Jeff Siegel, Louise Puddy, Nick Reese, Simon Hedley, Dustin Struckman, Frank Bennett, Joel Peterson, “Big Jason” Henderson, Rex Richard, Noah Auspitz, Hollis Carter, Suhail Kahn, Bernadetta Sperrazza, Vanessa Stewart, Katie Joy, Taibi Mastelse, Christina Batten, Maurice Castle, Sherrie Rose, and Kim Huong.

Over the course of the week, Internet Marketers Cruise guests enjoyed networking parties, mastermind sessions, fine dining and plenty of fun in the sun excursions while on the Caribbean islands.

Here are some of my favorite memories from Internet Marketers Cruise 2010…

Now, If you would like to join us next year on Internet Marketers Cruise and experience this million-dollar mastermind vacation of a lifetime for yourself, look no further!

That’s right – Internet Marketers Cruise 2011 is now open for registrations!

How would you like to join us next year when we set sail to visit the beautiful and exotic Caribbean Islands of Grand Turk, Catalina Island, Curacao and Aruba?

Every year, the Internet Marketers Cruise gets bigger and better than ever, with more and more top notch Internet Marketers joining us for this experience.

We would very much love for you to join the Internet Marketers Cruise family and experience this vacation for yourself – There’s nothing like this and you’ll finally understand why I come back every year :)

Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live 2009 in San Diego, CA

Hello from the Westin (Emerald Plaza) at Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live in San Diego, CA!

At the last minute, Ken McArthur invited me to host one of the VIP lunch sessions at jvAlert Live, and because Ken McArthur is such a close friend, I accepted and was on the next flight to San Diego to speak for him at my last America-based speaking engagement of the year.

With a room filled with some of the top VIPs in the Internet Marketing industry, including Marlon Sanders, Frank Sousa, Glenn Dietzel, Peter Parks, my business parters Andy Huang and David DiNucci, I actually pulled off a 90 minute presentation with no powerpoint – while everyone was eating!

It was very interesting experience, and I wouldn’t do it for anyone else except my buddy, Ken McArthur!

Hello from the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort at Ken McArthur’s IMPACT Event in Orlando, Florida!

The IMPACT Event Presentation with Lee Collins

I’ve spoken at quite a few seminars over the past few years, and out of all of them, the IMPACT Event has got to take the prize on bringing me the most childhood memories …

After all, we are at Disney World!

In addition to sharing the stage with Lee Collins, Frank Sousa, Warren Whitlock, Adam Urbanski, Sanyika Calloway Boyce, Glenn Dietzel, Bob “The Teacher” Jenkins, Felicia Slattery and David Preston…

I also had the opportunity to meet and reunite with a stellar line-up of VIPs, including Ross Goldberg, Dr. Ron Capps, Elsom Eldridge, Chris Lockwood, Melanie Milletics, Alicia Durnams, Rhonda Cort, Eric Farewell, Becki Andrus, JR Griggs, Kim Law and my new BFF, Alura Law. :)

Mike Filsaime’s Internet Marketers Cruise 2009

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on January 18th, 2009 | No Comments

Hello from Cabin 5151 onboard the Carnival Miracle somewhere on the Atlantic Ocean at Mike Filsaime’s annual Internet Marketers Cruise!

internet marketers cruise 2009

Internet Marketers Cruise 2009 (Click on photo to enlarge)

The Internet Marketers Cruise is always a great way to kick off the new year, and I have been fortunate to be a part of it every January for the past few years.

This time, our 8 day cruise around the Caribbean took us to St. Marteen, St. Kitts and Tortola, which is a beautiful island on the British Virgin Islands.

As always, the organizers of the Internet Marketers Cruise never fails in over-delivering, and I want to personally thank Mike Filsaime, Paulie Sabol, Donna Fox and Tom Beal – along with Captain Lou Edwards – on organizing yet another million-dollar mastermind vacation of a lifetime!

Previous years, the Internet Marketers Cruise was by invitation only, and the only way to receive an invitation is if you are within the “inner circle” of the Internet Marketers.

One of the reasons (and in my opinion, the major reason) this year’s Internet Marketers Cruise became the best one yet is that we have actually extended the invitation outside of just the “inner circle”…

And as you can see from our group photo above, the Carnival Miracle was literally dominated by Internet Marketers who took full advantage of the amazing week-long fun and networking experience!

Over the course of the 8 days, I had a ton of fun hanging out with members of the new “Rockstar Platinum” crew – Lee Collins, Robin Collins, James Lee, James Delong, Lasse Rouhiainen and Amanda Swigert.

It was also great to re-unite with previous Internet Marketers Cruise alumni, including Mike Morgan, Holly Morgan, Deborah Micek, JP Micek, Armando Montelongo, Veronica Montelongo, Joel Therien, Illona Therien, Mark Braunstein, Scott Tousignant, Bob Jenkins, Jennie Armato, Gary Byrne, Eelco de Boer, Howard Tiano, Cynthia Tiano, Matt Mazur, Michelle Galvin and Steve Pdilla.

I was also very excited to see some of my friends on the Internet Marketers Cruise as well, like Jeff Dedrick, Frank Sousa, Simone Blum, Tom Bell, Micheal Savoie, Frank Rumbauskas, Stacy Makdad, Reed Floren, Odinn Sorensen, Tracy Repchuk, Tim Houston, and Nathalie Fiset.

However, the best part has gotta be meeting completely new friends onboard, and have gotten to know Dr. Letitia Wright, Rich Cook, Jon Atwood, Vince Mitchell, Kelly Mitchell, Mike Deiure, Arnel Ricafranca, Susanne Jorgensen, Chris Cho, Annette Dubow, Matt Haslem, Jeanette Fisher, Julio Mattos, Amanda Steadman, Sharon Worsley, Mike Mahon, Jose Soto, Vince DelMonte, Wendy Joy Hart, Cindy Battye, Clay Franklin, Phil Henderson, Juliet Easton, Jon Benson, Wayne Buckhanan, Martyne Lo Russo, Scott Spurlock, and literally dozens more that I can’t remember right now!

The mastermind sessions, organized social events and island excursions have made the 2009 Internet Marketers Cruise a remarkable experience…

But I must say that one of the biggest highlights of the trip was finally meeting and getting to know one of my biggest inspirations in entrepreneurship, Robert G. Allen.

 Hanging out w/ Robert Allen on the beach in St. Marteen

I had met Robert Allen once back in May of 2006 when I attended the Enlightened Wealth Institute seminar in Anaheim, but we never had the chance to really connect at that event.

We almost shared the stage once as well in September 2007 at the World Internet Main Event in San Francisco, but that didn’t work out either when Robert Allen was unable to make it.

But this time, stuck on a cruise ship with me for 8 whole days, Robert Allen had nowhere to go, and I finally had the chance to lock him down to have some private conversations with him.

Robert Allen and I actually hit it off quite well, not only spending some time on the beach, but also in his suite along with the Rockstar Platinum crew setting up his new Twitter account and teaching him all about how to use the most powerful force in social media today.

All in all, I had one hell of a business vacation, not only by having tons of fun with an amazing community of people, but also one of my more productive business trips yet – literally lining up my entire year’s worth of projects (in addition to the 50% of the time I’m already spending traveling internationally!).

If you’d like to join us for next year’s Internet Marketers Cruise and experience the mastermind vacation of a lifetime for yourself, I encourage you to visit our website now so you can sign up on our pre-notification list and be the first to know when plans for Internet Marketers Cruise 2010 is ready :)

In the meantime, help me keep the memories of Internet Marketers Cruise 2009 alive by viewing and commenting on some of the most memorable moments of the event captured on camera…

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 :)

Ross Goldberg’s Masters Seminar In Chicago, IL

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on July 20th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Room 1116 of the Westin Hotel at Ross Goldberg’s Masters Seminar in Chicago, IL!

masters seminar

As you can see from the Masters Seminar sign, Ross Goldberg has gone all out with a high budget production for his latest Masters Seminar. :)

All joking aside, the sign above was only temporary while we awaited the print-outs of the real sign, which was ready before the doors opened at 8am on Friday morning…

ross goldberg

For this Masters Seminar, Ross Goldberg has put together the most impressive expert line-up yet, including some of the biggest names in Internet Marketing.

Speakers include Joel Comm, Anik Singal, Donna Fox, Ken McArthur, Willie Crawford, Alan Bechtold, Frank Sousa, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Nathan Anderson, Tracy Repchuk, Eric Farewell, Kevin Nations, Brad Semp, Eric Stafford, Bob Jenkins, Gina Gaudio-Graves, and myself…

As always, Ross Goldberg put on a great event that not only included a ton of amazing content, but fun networking opportunities as well.

Speakers and attendees alike were able to network with one another at the conference, over lunch, dinner, at the hotel bar and even at a private cocktail party.

And within our own inner circle of friends, we’ve always believed in giving back and over-delivering…

So Joel Comm and I decided that we would do a bonus presentation for the attendees on a very logical partnership – the two sides of Google, AdWords and AdSense…

joel comm

joel comm

joel comm

During the 90 minute or so presentation, Joel Comm and I told some personal stories and revealed some strategic ways to grow a business using AdWords and AdSense.

In addition, we also took specific questions from the audience to make sure that the content we provided was the kind of information they wanted to learn.

Overall, the consensus was that the bonus session was very valuable, and those in attendance were very appreciative of the additional content.

On a more personal note…

As much as I enjoy speaking at seminars and networking with attendees or other speakers, I feel like it might be time for me to take my own business to a new direction.

When I came back home from Asia last March, I planned to stop speaking at so many seminars to focus on my own office projects and business overseas.

However, before I knew it, my travel schedule was booked every weekend through the end of the summer.

While I continued to have fun at these various events over the summer, I’m planning once again to focus on various other aspects of my business that would require less seminar speaking.

This time, I’m serious…

I do plan to continue traveling, as I have a lot of fun doing it, but I would only do so for my own events or for International business affairs.

You’ll hear more about some exciting new projects I have in the works in Singapore, Malaysia and China in the upcoming months…

I’ll be working with my good friends Stuart Tan and Ewen Chia from Singapore, as well as some of my top performing team members, Andy Huang and Kevin Finney.

That will probably be several weeks down the line for production and launch time.

In the meantime, if you are interested in catching me one last time before I leave the country again in about a month, I will be in Long Island, NY, on August 8th, at the Three Sides of Traffic workshop that I’ll be conducting with Ross Goldberg and Howie Schwartz.

Because we’re so close to Mike Filsaime’s Long Island office, Mike Filsaime and his team will most likely drop by as well, along with several other surprise VIPs over the course of the weekend.

And again, because we believe so much in giving back, Ross Goldberg, Howie Schwartz and myself are actually not going to make any money from this traffic workshop.

Plus, in addition to receiving a free ticket to this event, you will also have an opportunity to give back yourself by helping children in need.

I honestly can’t think of a better way to wrap up my two year speaking tour than this, and would be honored to share this experience with you…

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

 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.

”jvalert

 Ken McArthur And Simon Leung At jvAlert Live

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 :)

Frank Kern’s Mass Control Workshop in San Diego, CA

Hello from Room 935 of the Hard Rock Hotel at Frank Kern’s Mass Control Workshop in San Diego, CA!

 Frank Kern And Simon Leung At The Mass Control VIP Party On The Roof Of The Hard Rock Hotel

I just spent the weekend hanging out with Internet Marketing’s top dogs, who all attended as part of all-star VIP line up of the Mass Control Workshop.

We saw cameo appearances from superstars like Mike Filsaime, Tom Beal, Rich Schefren, Jeff Walker, Jason Moffatt, Mike Koenigs, Brad Fallon, Andy Jenkins, Mike Morgan, John Carlton, Matt Gill, Rex Wisehart, Sterling Valentine, Mark Widawer, Kevin Nations, Ryan Kaltman, Lynn Pierce, Frank Sousa, Ross Goldberg, Bob Serling, Eben Pagan, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Ed Dale, Tellman Knudson, Joe Polish, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Shawn Casey and at least several others that I can’t think of right now!

I know – I couldn’t believe the VIP guests either!

All of these top marketers coming together in San Diego definitely made the Mass Control workshop a spectacular and memorable event.

But just as valuable as the networking was the incredible content delivered by Frank Kern and his guest speakers.

They spoke of the human psychology behind a customer’s buying process, and everything that defines a prospect’s purchase decision.

I was especially impressed as Frank Kern dissected the anatomy of his multi-million dollar Mass Control launch, which was nothing short of brilliant!

But more importantly than just the money is the process that can bring you more followers and fans in your specified niche.

Even though I don’t personally have a big launch planned for at least another few months, I am extremely eager to put some of this new information to use.

Over the next several days, I’ll be implementing some Mass Control style strategies to see on a couple social networking websites to see how well they work for me.

Check back soon and I’ll let you know the results :)

Stu McLaren’s Idea Incubator in Anaheim, CA

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

Hello from Room 707 of the Embassy Suites at Stu McLaren’s Idea Incubator in Anaheim, CA, just a few blocks away from Disneyland and Downtown Disney :)

Idea Incubator At The Embassy Suites In Anaheim, CA

Idea Incubator Day One – 9:15AM (Presentation #1)

Idea Incubator Day Two – 8:45AM (Presentation #2)

(Photos courtesy of Andy Huang, my Project Manager and Business Partner)
This event marks the last speaking engagement that I have committed to for the next few months… That’s because I will be doing some intensive International traveling to start building new businesses and organizing my own events overseas.

With that said, I must say that the Idea Incubator was for certain the best event I could have chosen for such an occasion…

This is primarily due to the fact that the Idea Incubator has arguably one of the most involved processes for the speakers, simply because Stu McLaren strongly believes in maximizing the value for the attendees.

Not only is the Idea Incubator an intensive weekend of valuable information, but each speaker also presents not just once, but TWO times, for multiple days in content-packed 90 minute sessions.

In addition, all speakers also get together with the attendees for a night in a “roundtable” session, where small groups get the chance to personally meet and grill each speaker for 20 minutes at a time on just about anything that they want!

And considering the EXTREMELY high quality of speakers that I have the honor of sharing the stage with at the Idea Incubator, including Alex Mandossian, Armand Morin, Matt Bacak, Jermaine Griggs, Ray Edwards, Michel Fortin and Sylvie Fortin…

Well, you can just imagine the tremendous value each attendee got simply by making their trip to Anaheim this weekend!

Also, I must admit that I’ve never been to another event where even the most successful speakers stick around to network and hang out with everyone throughout most of the event.

The quality of Idea Incubator also shows with the calibur of audience just in attendance, including Frank Sousa, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Christina Hills, Jay Aaron, Mike Koenigs, Jose Espana, DJ Dave Bernstein, Eric Farewell, Marty Stewart, Rachel Rofe and Jaime Mintun.

You may or may not have heard of all the names I just mentioned (particularly the latter ones), but they are all good friends of mine and you’ll be hearing a lot more from them real soon (I already have some cool projects planned with most of them).

Definitely an amazing weekend at the Idea Incubator, but I’m bummed that I need to leave the event early because I am taking off for my 2 month trip to Asia tonight, so I need to go home, pack and take care of some last minute things.

However, I am very glad that I could stick around last night for not only for the round table session, but also to celebrate Stu McLaren’s birthday with his team and a few friends at Red Robins.

Stu McLaren’s Birthday Dinner With Jermaine Griggs, Brent Coppieters, Jeff France, Faye McLaren, Greg France, Rachel Rofe And Jaime Mintun

Again, this marks the end of my seminar speaking tour for a while, and since I will be out of the country, that means that I will be missing some very cool upcoming seminars, including Ken McArthur’s JV Alert Live, Howie Schwartz and Dr. Mike Woo-Ming’s Lead Supreme Workshop, Alex Mandossian’s Teleseminar Secrets Reunion, and other events organized by Armand Morin, Mark Hendricks and Frank Kern.

And even though I will be back on the circuit eventually, probably in a couple of months, I will be committing to a lot fewer of them, and my schedule will be a lot less aggressive so that I can focus on truly building my business.

I have a lot of goals regarding where I want to take my business, and after 18 months of intensive traveling and speaking, I believe it’s finally time to stir my actionable items towards that direction.
