Hello from the Silverado Resort at Larry Benet’s Speakers and Authors Networking Group (SANG) in Napa Valley, CA!

I drove up here to Napa Valley today with Eric Farewell, not knowing what to expect at Larry Benet’s Authors and Speakers Networking Group (SANG), and really not even deciding whether or not to come until earlier this afternoon.

But once we arrived at Authors and Speakers Networking Group, we were completely floored by the caliber of business individuals and entrepreneurs present all in one room…

We’re talking about best selling authors, multi-millionaires and even billionaires, including Jack Canfield (from the Chicken Soup of the Soul series), Bill Bartmann, Ron LeGrand, Alex Mandossian, Stephen Pierce, Joel Comm, Russell Brunson, John Carlton, Armando Montelongo, Veronica Montelongo, Brendon Burchard, Mike Koenigs, Kevin Nations, Matt Morris and dozens more.

Umm… yeah, this event was NO joke, dude!

This truly was a solid networking event, and I can honestly say that I have never seen a more brilliant relationship building event model than the one I have witnessed at the Authors and Speakers Networking Group.

In addition to the speed networking sessions, everyone continued to network non-stop through dinner, and even after the event was over, hanging out at the hotel bar into the wee hours of the night.

Because I have yet to replace my broken camera and Eric Farewell also forgot his camera equipment at my house, we were unfortunately unable to capture too many moments of the Authors and Speakers Networking Group on film.

However, for your viewing pleasure, Eric Farewell has gone ahead and done a couple extra 12 second videos for you at the Silverado Resort in Napa Valley (ya he’s not as good with these 12 second videos as I am haha)…

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!

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 :)
