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!

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 :)
