John Delavera’s Turbo Seminar in Las Vegas, Nevada

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on February 27th, 2010 | No Comments

Hello from the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino at John Delavera’s Turbo Seminar in Las Vegas, Nevada!

Simon Leung at Turbo Seminar

The Turbo Seminar is my last speaking engagement in the United States before I leave for Asia again for a series of events and projects in Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand and China.

In fact, I’m flying out to Jakarta tomorrow for the first of these projects, which means that I could not stay in Vegas for the remaining of the Turbo Seminar.

If I didn’t have to catch that flight tomorrow, it would have been fun to stay in Vegas for another night or two to hang out with the fellow Turbo Seminar speakers and VIPs, including Mark Joyner, Joe Sugarman, Glenn Dietzel, Lee Collins, Warren Whitlock, Susan Preston, Donna Fox, Morgan Westerman, Andy Huang, James Lee, Warren Yip, Chuck Mullaney, Greg Mulac and Stephanie Mulac.

Even though I was only in town for a couple of days, I still got a lot out of the Turbo Seminar not only from the presentations, but also the networking with the audience, as well as the opportunity to hang out with the experts and get to know them better.

Thanks for John Delavera for putting on the Turbo Seminar, and I can’t wait to come back to Vegas again sometime after my Asia trip for another fun event.

Mike Filsaime’s Affiliate Appreciation Weekend

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on January 24th, 2010 | No Comments

Hello from the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, the site of Mike Filsaime’s incredible Affiliate Appreciation Weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada!

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!

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…

There are so many more fun memories captured on camera from Internet Marketers Cruise 2010 that I cannot possibly post all of them here, otherwise this page will take even longer to load.

However, I would encourage you to visit my Facebook page to see all the photos posted from fellow cruisers of this amazing vacation…

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?

Even though this last Internet Marketers Cruise has just concluded, I know the next one will be coming up very fast, and the cabins will sell out even faster!

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 :)

Private Mastermind Retreat At Robert Allen’s House

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Travel, Updates on June 3rd, 2009 | No Comments

Hello from Robert Allen’s gorgeous Southern California mansion, where Robert Allen has graciously opened up his home for a private mastermind retreat.

When I spoke with Robert Allen several weeks ago at his Cash in a Flash workshop with Mark Victor Hansen, he had expressed interest in creating a mastermind team and working together to leverage our respective talents to impact as many lives as possible.

We were both ecstatic about the mastermind team concept, and Robert Allen had asked me to handpick my top partners and associates to his home for a mastermind retreat.

I extended the invitation to my direct business partners and colleagues, Andy Huang, David DiNucci, James Lee, Lee Collins and Robin Collins, and together, we spent an incredible day at Robert Allen’s house putting together multi-million dollar projects into our pipelines.

In addition to masterminding on our current projects, we also brainstormed how Robert Allen can partner with AIMVenture Corporation, the company I formed with Andy Huang, which was also joined recently by David DiNucci.

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…

Social Media Simplified in Ventura, California

Posted by Simon Leung in Educational, Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on October 27th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello from Ventura Technology Development Center on the filming set of theSocial Media Simplified Web 2.0 Master Class in Ventura, CA!

social media simplified

Social Media Simplified Presenters Mari Smith, Deborah Micek, Linda Taylor, Denise Wakeman, Simon Leung And Nancy Marmolejo

Even though I only had one hour of sleep that I snuck in during my 6am flight from San Jose to Ontario, I was too excited to be tired as my partner Andy Huang and I then made a 2-hour commute to Ventura to take part in Social Media Simplified filming.

As a late addition to the Social Media Simplified team of talented presenters, I was extremely stoked to accept the invitation to join the ranks of Linda Taylor, Deborah Micek (AKA CoachDeb), Mari Smith, Denise Wakeman (one half of the BlogSquad team with Patsi Krakoff) and Nancy Marmolejo to speak on Google Optimization through Social Media.

Throughout the day, we learned a ton of great information about marketing with social media, utilizing Web 2.0 tools such as TwitterFacebookMySpaceYouTube and CoachDeb’s own Blog i360 system as a blogging platform.

During my time on stage, I was excited not only to share some of the social media tools, widgets, plugins and strategies that I personally use for my own blog to maximize the quality and quantity of traffic coming into my website, but also to have some fun and share some laughs with the great audience, as well.

In fact, we had so much fun that most of the attendees at Social Media Simplified felt that my presentation was more entertaining than it was informative! (Haha… just kidding…)

All joking aside, I’m confident that every one in attendance had a good time and hopefully, have already begun implementing some of the effective social media marketing strategies shared on the Social Media Simplified stage.

Towards the end of the shooting, all the presenters got together on stage to organize an expert panel, where we conducted live critiques of attendees’ blogs and answered questions from the audience.

After the Social Media Simplified event was over, we brought the party over to our VIP dinner at a nearby French restaurant, where we had the opportunity to network more with one another.

Before leaving town the following evening, I spent the day hanging out with CoachDeb, Andy Huang and James Lee, taking advantage of some of the best dim sum in town, as well as organizing our own “working party,” complete with sake and snacks!

andy huang

Overall, I had a ton of fun and made a bunch of new connections at Social Media Simplified, so I am definitely glad I was able to make it out to Southern California for the one day event before returning to Singapore next week for The SMART Seminar.

If you weren’t able to attend Social Media Simplified, the entire event has been recorded and the DVD set will be made available within the next week, so stay tuned for more information about how you can get your hands on the amazing social marketing content so you don’t miss out!

In the meantime, you can keep up with posts, comments and photos from the Social Media Simplified presenters, attendees and fans on the #SMSV Twitter stream.

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 :)

Exclusive JV Partnership Invitation

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Launch, Promotion, Updates on August 21st, 2008 | No Comments

If Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Kevin Nations, Mike Morgan, Ross Goldberg, Lee & Robin Collins, Eric Farewell, Rex Wisehart, Nathan Anderson, Alejandro Reyes, Sam Heyer, James Lee and myself asked you for a joint venture, what would you say?

No really, this is a serious question…

Personally, I get dozens of JV proposals every single day – and that’s only the ones that make it through to my email inbox!

Like all the top marketers mentioned above, I probably receive hundreds more on a weekly basis through my support desk, personal instant messenger, SMS text and social media profiles like Twitter, Facebook and MySpace.

Needless to say, there is simply no way for us to respond to all these JV proposals or even sort through them, much less accept them.

So when I take on a JV partnership, especially when I’m working with the top Internet Marketers in the world mentioned above, you better believe that I am not only seriousabout, but also very excited about it as well.

The truth is, for the past few months, I’ve been working on building an entirely new business with these marketers that’s definitely going to change my entire business forever, and maybe even yours too (if you decide to partner with us).

It’s something I’ve never done before, and probably never will again…

And today, I am extending you an official invitation not only to become our customer, but to make money and share profits with us as our partner in arguably one of the biggest projects each of us have all been involved in!

There has already been a lot of buzz surrounding over 10,000 people on the social media sites regarding a “secret 12? launch, and in the next week or so after launch, an additional 300,000 sets of eyeballs are going to learn more about this unique opportunity.

If you are serious about the exclusive opportunity to partner with the top names in Internet Marketing, don’t think about it for too long because when we’ve reached our quota for JV partners, we’ll be closing the doors forever and the only way to partner with us again in the future may be competing against the hundreds of other messages we get every week…
