Simon Leung at Gateway to Wealth Seminar

I’m speaking very rarely in the United States these days, and my good friends, Keith Wellman and Gary Ambrose, did not disappoint with the quality of the attendees and speakers at the Gateway to Wealth Seminar.

In three content packed days, the Gateway to Wealth Seminar soldout room was overwhelmed with the amazing information shared by Stephen Pierce, Russell Brunson, Donna Fox, Adam Gingsberg, Sean Roach, Greg Caesar, Bill Walsh, PJ Van Hulle and Jeff Wellman.

As if the presentations themselves weren’t enough to overdeliver in value, Keith Wellman and Gary Ambrose also held an additional bonus session on how to become a successful entrepreneur, which featured more VIP experts who were in attendance at the Gateway to Wealth Seminar.

The Gateway to Wealth Seminar in Chicago is my last speaking engagement in the United States for the next few months.

Let me know if you would like to meet me outside of the United States during any of my upcoming summer events in London, Manila, Bristol, Sydney, Dubai, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Hanoi, Chennai, Delhi or Pattaya!

Hello from the Thistle Marble Arch Hotel at Mark Anastasi’s Ultimate Listbuilding Masterclass in London!

Even though I have spoken to a London seminar audience before via live webinar, the Ultimate Listbuilding Masterclass is the first time that I physically took center stage at a London event.

And I was in great company…

In addition to Mark Anastasi, host and promoter of the Ultimate Listbuilding Masterclass, who packed the room with over 500 attendees throughout the 3 day event, I also shared the London stage with Raymond Aaron, Keith Wellman, Reed Floren, Tracey Repchuk, Brian Koz, Steven Essa, Chuck Mullaney, Jim Graham, Daniel Wagner and Saj Purkayastha.

Also in attendance at the Ultimate Listbuilding Masterclass were the amazing crew and VIP guests, all of whom I am now excited to call my UK friends, including Miroslava Petkova, Lenka Marinkovic, Inga Binga, Vesna Florijancic, Michael Blue Pants, Amy Folkard Moore, Zoe Socrates, Phil Henderson, Hanna Angell, Davaa Dorj, Theo Handen, Dilyana Georgieva, Sohail Kahn, Samantha Hoogenboom, Julia Serbanete, Karen Strutt and more.

The networking and friendships made at Ultimate Listbuilding Masterclass was simply amazing, and Mark Anastasi definitely overdelivered with the high calibur of speakers as well as an extraordinarily well-put together event.

Special thanks to my pal, Mark Anastasi – Look forward to working with you again sometime in the near future, man!

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!

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

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 :)

Big Seminar 9 in Atlanta, Georgia

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on April 29th, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room 212 of the DoubleTree Guest Suites near the Cobb Galleria at Armand Morin’s Big Seminar 9 in Atlanta, Georgia!

This was my first time attending Big Seminar, which took place at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel … And everything I’ve heard about Armand Morin’s spectacular event has been all true!

In addition to the amazing speaker line-up, which included Loral Langemeier, Marlon Sanders, Joel Comm, Alexandria Brown, Russell Brunson, Joe Polish, David Riklan, Jim Edwards, Mike Stewart and Armand Morin…

Even Internet Marketing experts who were NOT speaking at Big Seminar 9 came out, including Jeff Walker, Brad Fallon, Andy Jenkins, Craig Perrine, Donna Fox, Stu McLaren, Tellman Knudson, Carl Galletti, The Rich Jerk, Shawn Casey. Michel Fortin, Sylvie Charrier, Brian Edmondson, Ryan Deiss, Matt Bacak, Eric Holmlund, Jeanette Cates, Mark Braunstein, Keith Wellman and Eric Rockefeller, just to name a few.

As you can imagine, Big Seminar has indeed been a tremendously valuable networking experience!

From getting interviewed for Joel Comm’s “The Next Internet Millionaire” TV reality show to late night runs to the Waffle House, this has, without a doubt, been a memorable Big Seminar weekend.

And from the rumors that are going around, Big Seminar 10 is coming up next and as the 10th semi-annual event, it is scheduled to be the biggest Big Seminar to date!

So leave your calendar open for Big Seminar 10 scheduled for the month of October, and I look forward to seeing you then here in Atlanta, Georgia!

i5 Gold Cruise 2007

Hello from Cabin 6228 aboard the Carnival Spirit somewhere in the Pacific Ocean!

What a fun working vacation at sea it has been with other great marketers, including Mike Filsaime, Paulie Sabol, Tom Beal, Donna Fox, Deb and JP Micek, Armando Montelongo Jr., Veronica Montelongo, Sam Heyer, Joel Therien, IIona Therien, Keith Wellman, Danny Guspie, Heidi Nabert, Scott Paton, Alex Nghiem, and Barbara Drazga.

Not only have the cruise activities been a blast, but the land activities have also been phenomenal.

There are just countless things to do on the ship…

I’ve gotten the chance to experience a lot of them, but there’s just no way to accomplish all of them within just an 8 day cruise.

Some of these activities include dancing, singing, drinking, lounging, gambling, sun bathing, swimming, hot tubbing, golfing, exercising, massaging, watching live shows, not to mention all the food you can possibly eat!

As you can tell, I’m having a great time so far.

And that’s not all…

During the course of the cruise, we also made stops at Acapulco, Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa and Manzanillo.

In Acapulco, we played it by ear and took a local tour around town and stopped by the beach, flea market and some sight seeing intermissions along the way.

In Zihuatenejo/Ixtapa, we once again went with the flow and ran into a local who was willing to take us around town for whatever we were willing to tip him.

We agreed to his offer and enjoyed the day hanging out and jet skiing on the beach, flea market and sight seeing again.

In Manzanillo, we took the bus downtown and ultimately decided to take cabs to the beach to spend the day.

Although we had a great time at the beach, we ran into a minor mishap when we missed our drivers, who were supposed to take us back to our ship.

Finding other cabs and other drivers were tough, but finally, in desperation, we convinced a nice couple to fit 18 of us in the back of his pick-up truck for a ride back to the main road.

It was quite an adventure, especially since we almost did not make it onto the truck.

In fact, I only had one of my legs in the truck the entire time, and the main road was ways away.

When we finally got back onto the main road, we had yet another challenge of finding enough taxis to take us back to the ship.

The port was a good 25 to 30 minutes away, and time was quickly slipping away.

We were lucky enough to accomplish the task of hailing multiple cabs to take us where we needed to go.

However, because our cab drivers did not want to go through customs, they dropped us off just short of there.

We ended up having to walk back to the ship, and barely made it back in time just as they were closing up the gates to the port!

From seeing celebrity homes and jetskiing around the huge Carnival ship to almost getting stranded in Mexico, it has definitely been an action packed vacation.

These past several days have given all of the marketers on the cruise a chance to get to know each other and building strong personal and business relationships.

Lots of new and stronger friendships were formed here, which will lead to many of us helping each other and even working with one another in the months to come.

It has definitely been a valuable and productive experience for me.

Thanks again to Paulie Sabol, Mike Filsaime, Donna Fox and Tom Beal for organizing such a fabulous vacation!

Here are some more memories from the awesome i5 Gold Cruise 2007…
