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

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

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!

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 :)

Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live 2008 in Philadelphia, PA

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…

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 :)

Four Years Ago Today…

Posted by Simon Leung in Educational, Gurus, Launch, Personal, Promotion, Resources, Seminars, Updates on April 30th, 2008 | No Comments

Four years ago, on April 30th, 2004, while I was still working at Google, I created my first blog.

In fact, you can read my very first post on this blog by clicking here => April 30th, 2004

Two years later almost to the day, I was presented with an opportunity to attend my very first Internet Marketing seminar.

You can read about that here => April 28th, 2006

Today, four years later, I am running my own successful Internet Marketing business, and I have been lucky enough to befriend a lot of fellow entrepreneurs in the community.

And just like most of them (if not all of them), I started my Internet Marketing business with a blog.

For the past four years, I have been consistently, tirelessly and even eagerly documenting every single step of my Internet Marketing journey…

Why?

Quite frankly, it was because I didn’t learn the secrets to Internet success overnight – and I KNEW I wouldn’t – so I wanted to record it all (for myself, so I can remember my successes and failures, but also for you, so you can learn from my positive examples as well as mistakes).

From just a general business idea that I had with a few friends while still working at Google and getting mentored by the late (and great) Corey Rudl, to attending my very first Internet Marketing seminar and continuing on to speak on stage for the very first time, it’s all there every step of the way.

You can read about how I began and went through my trials, struggles, fears and frustrations (just like everyone else), to where I am today – my victories and success stories – all documented on my blog, right here at www.SimonLeung.com.

When you have some free time, or when you want to take a break from your work, I want to invite you to read my entire story on this website.

It’ll make you laugh; it’ll make you cry…

But more importantly, it may even be inspiring, as well as a great read, if I do say so myself ;)

What has blogging my story done for me, and why do I continue to do it after all these years?

Well, as you can see in my various posts, I am not only telling stories, but I’m also teaching and providing good information.

More importantly, I make it fun with text, photos and even videos.

These elements help attract new visitors to my blog, and keeps them coming back to read more.

What does that mean to me?

In addition to loyal readers, I get traffic, traffic and even more traffic :)

I have dozens of websites, but the one that gets the most new and returning visitors is my blog, by far!

As my reader, I want to get you to understand the importance of having your own blog.

Actually, I was talking to Sterling Valentine about this the other day on our drive to San Diego…

Your blog is your tool to not only get traffic, but to also build your relationship with your readers.

Tell them good stories, give them good content, and make it fun for them, and they will come back again and again.

Personally, I blog cuz it connects me to you, and I want you to get to know ME, and not what I’m “known as.”

Yes, my blog brands me as an expert and a speaker (which is all very cool), but I want talk to you as a friend, and I want to tell you what I’m up
by sharing my experiences with you.

That’s the kind of blog that I want to run, and that’s the kind of blog you’ll continue to get for many more years to come when you come back and visit :)

And the great thing about a blog is that it’s the fastest way to start your Internet business.

I did it in about two hours, but with the new Anik Singal and Rosalind Garner’s Blog Classroom, you can probably do it in 10 :)

Technology these days has made starting your own blog as easy as a mouse click, and all that’s left is for you to plug in a little bit of yourself
and introduce yourself to your new fans!

The Blog Classroom shows you exactly what you need to do in order to brand yourself online and tell your story.

And before you know it, you’ll be all over the Internet (trust me – it’s really cool haha).

I hope this has encouraged you to start your own blog if you haven’t already started one…

Or if you have, I hope this gives you some ideas on how you can change or move forward that gives your readers more of yourself.

By the way, attending Internet Marketing seminars is a great way to meet other entrepreneurs, and it gives you something really interesting to blog about.

You can blog about your experience, what you learned, who was there, and you can even post photos and videos, which many people enjoy.

If you are interested in attending an Internet Marketing seminar soon, some upcoming ones include Ross Goldberg’s Xtreme Business Makeover Workshop in Sarasota, FL, Ken McArthur’s JV Alert Live in Philadelphia, PA, Mark Hendrick’s Internet Superstars Conference in Baltimore, MD, and Lynn Pierce’s Women’s Business Empowerment Summit in Scottsdale, AZ.

Let me know if you’re going to be at any of them and maybe we can meet up for lunch :)

Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live 2007 Philadelphia PA

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on June 11th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room 601 at the Radisson Hotel at Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!

It has been exactly one year since attending my first jvAlert Live right here at the Radisson Hotel in Philly, and it has brought back so many memories of the event that changed my life forever.

I went into Internet Marketing full-time within just 6 weeks after that event, and have been attending every jvAlert Live loyally ever since.

jvAlert Live is my home, and everyone here is family.

This year, the jvAlert Live family grew considerably, and I had the honor of sharing the Expert Panel stage with new jvAlert Live comers Michel Fortin, Dave Lakhani, Glenn Dietzel, Scott Paton, Ramon Williamson, Randy Charach, Heather Vale, Alan Bechtold and Jason DeVelvis…

Along with jvAlert Live alumnus Sterling Valentine, Tom Beal, Rick Raddatz, Ben Mack, John DeLemme, Frank Sousa, Phil Basten, Jane Mark, Brian Edmondson, Jeff Wark and Lori Steffan.

As always, Ken McArthur has put on a tremendous show, and lives have been changed right here at jvAlert Live.

jvAlert Live! and StomperNet Live

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on February 19th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello and Happy Chinese New Year from Room 842 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Florida!

It’s been yet another awesome and life-changing jvAlert Live! for many attendees, and this one was particularly cool because StomperNet Live was happening at the same time in the same hotel!

My jvAlert Live! and StomperNet Live passes

Although I had passes for both events, I spent most of my time at jvAlert Live!, simply because this is the event I had originally planned to attend in the first place, and most of my friends were also here for jvAlert Live! as attendees, experts and presenters.

As well, jvAlert Live! is also my first time returning to a seminar platform as an alumni speaker for a particular event…

Speaking in the expert panel during a Hotseat session

I made my big debut to the jvAlert Live! stage in San Diego, CA, exactly four months ago now.

This time around, Ken McArthur has brought on some of the biggest guns in Internet Marketing, and gave me the opportunity to share the stage with Mike Filsaime, Rich Schefren, Brad Fallon, Gary Ambrose, Sterling Valentine, Joshua Shafran, John Di Lemme, Harris Fellman, Jason Oman, Mike Enos, Alysan Delaney-Childs, Michael Hudson and my good friends and roommates for the trip, Jeff and Lori, the Dynamic Duo of Content Creation!

On top of that, I also shared the expert panel with additional industry experts, such as Mark Hendricks, Frank Sousa, Len Thurmond, Michael Angier, Keith Wellman, Brian Edmondson, Michael Morgan, Danny Guspie, Heidi Nabert, Michael Young, Alex Nghiem, Robert Butwin, Dan Giordano, Joe Robson, Doug Champigny, Karl Barndt and Gina Gaudio-Graves.

During private lunch sessions, we also had special guest speakers Ben Mack, Ann DeVere and Ray Edwards…

…Not bad for just a single event, don’t you think?

Well hey, let’s not forget StomperNet Live…

At that event, Brad Fallon and Andy Jenkins brought to the stage additional experts John Reese, Larry Benet, David Bullock, Jeff Mulligan, Shawn Casey, Jeff Johnson, Jason Potash, Mike Woo-Ming, Jack Humphrey, Ken Leonard, Jerry West, Nathan Anderson and more.

As you can see, it was a very big weekend here at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando!

But wait… There’s More!

Exactly one year ago to the hour of his jvAlert Live! presentation, Sterling Valentine declared his 90 day $100,000 challenge with nothing but a “beat up laptop and a dream”…

…The original laptop from Sterling’s pre-JV Formula success surfaces for the first time – and here’s your exclusive look at it in his hotel room…

Oh, and remember the Internet Marketing Road Trip I told you a little over a week ago with Sterling Valentine and Matt Frasch?

Here’s the actual ‘97 Chevy Blazer the two of them are touring the country in…

To finish off the weekend with a bang, several of us went over to Frank Sousa’s house for some BBQ and socializing, followed by a recorded private mastermind session project you will soon learn more about…

That’s all from Orlando. I’ll be flying home this afternoon for a couple days before coming back to the East Coast on Thursday for the 2007 Figure Business from Mike Filsaime and Tom Beal in Long Island, New York.

That will undoubtedly be another amazing event, and I look forward to sharing that experience with you from Long Island…
