Hello from Room 1709 of the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Ave of the Stars at The Rich Jerk’s Mastermind and Party Event in Los Angeles, California!
This is an exciting trip because it will be the first time that all four members of my team in one of our companies will be present (Hey, we’re Internet Marketers – doing business with people you’ve never met before isn’t all that uncommon).

I arrived at LAX on Thursday afternoon from my quick flight from San Jose (SJC), just in time to meet up with my buddy and business partner, Sam Heyer, whose flight was just coming in from Minnesota.
As I waited for Sam near the baggage claim area, Harris Fellman shows up with his wife, Andrea, along with Jud Smith from PowerPay, and his assistant.
It was a cool surprise, and the funny thing was that neither Harris, Jud nor Sam were aware that they had shared the same flight to Los Angeles.
In any case, we all then shared a cab ride to the hotel here at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, where we checked into our rooms and settled in a bit.
Then, Sam and I decided to head downstairs to grab a bite and ran into Mike Filsaime, Tom Beal and Randy Charach, who were hanging out at the lobby and waiting for a couple other people to go to In and Out Burger.
We were then greeted by Harris and Andrea again, who preferred sushi over In and Out, so Sam and I decided to join them for some lunch there at the hotel, where we were then joined by Jason Moffat and Merlin Holmes as they made their way into the hotel.
After a little bit of mingling, we went back to our rooms to get ready to go to the Magic Castle, which is an exclusive club, and you are allowed entry only with members of the Magic Castle.
So then, we all met up at the hotel lobby with John Reese, Kevin Wilke, Jeff Mulligan, Mike Long, John Reel, Jeff Dedrick, Kevin Colon, Eric Rockefeller, Jud Smith, Wesley Williams, Tim Erway, Patric Chan and Magic Ryan Kaltman from The Rich Jerk Team and headed over to the Magic Castle to experience some insane close up and stage magic action.

The next day, we had a private mastermind session with everyone from the Magic Castle, along with more people who joined us late, including Eben Pagan, David DeAngelo, Willie Crawford, Jason Potash, Dave Lakhani, Tom Bell, Joel Therien, IIona Therien, Dave Miz, Jason James and Mike Woo-Ming.
This was a great session as Eben Pagan took the stage to talk about business building strategies, followed by an interactive question and answer session where the audience wrote down their most burning questions on the wall, and experts take turn answering them.
Speaking At The Mastermind
As soon as the mastermind session was over, we all got ready for the highlight of the trip – A party at the Playboy Mansion!
The Playboy Mansion was spectacular – and entering the property itself was an entire military operation!

I had the chance to hang out with some of my other Internet Marketing friends there, including Anik Singal, Jason Oman, Rachel Rofe, Arnel Castro and TV Stars of A&E’s “Flip This House,” Armando Montelongo and Veronica Montelongo.
Speaking of stars, other celebrity sightings at the Playboy Mansion include Paulie Shore, Bobby Brown, Mad Mike, Mystery and Adam Mesh from Average Joe.
I will spare the details of The Rich Jerk’s Playboy Mansion Party to avoid offending anybody, but overall, everyone in our group had an incredible time and the mansion was simply amazing.
Later on today, David DiNucci, one of my best buddies from Google who moved down here to Newport Beach is going to swing by the hotel to pick me up, and we’re going to drive back up to the Bay Area together.
It will be a lot of fun as we haven’t hung out since his birthday party down in Newport Beach back in February, so it will be a great opportunity for us to spend some quality time together and catching up.
