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)…

Networking Dinner in Los Angeles, CA

Hello from Gate 7 of the Southwest Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in Los Angeles, CA!

I just said bade farewell here at the gate with Alejandro Reyes, my former apprentice turned Operations Manager turned business partner.

We were in Los Angeles for the day on business, and decided last minute that we would organize a networking dinner in LA before we went home.

Collectively, we have lots of friends in the LA area, but because it was so last minute, not everyone was able to make it.

Alejandro had the idea of using Twitter to let his followers know that we were in town, and by 7pm, we had a small group of 6 people meeting up for dinner at the Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, a 5 star restaurant in El Segundo.

 Twittering Fools At The Dinner Table: Rachel Rofe, Mark Widawer, Simon Leung, James Lee, Alejandro Reyes And Chuck Yockey

As you can see, all 6 of us were busy twittering away even at the dinner table :)

We didn’t get to stay too long since Alejandro and I had to catch a flight, but it was fun hanging out with some local marketers for a couple hours.

If you’re interested in meeting up sometime while I’m in your neck of the woods, check outmy calendar and feel free to Twitter me to let me know you’re in the area and want to meet up.

Since Alejandro and I both had our flights delayed, we decided to shoot a quick video on the power of networking, and how social media has made it so much more easier to network online with practically anyone you want.

Enjoy the video :)
