Hello from the Lake Conference Center at the Doubletree Resort Orlando for Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live! in Orlando, Florida!
Simon Leung at jvAlert Live! 2010 Orlando
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.
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!
Hello from Cabin 2279 aboard the Carnival Dream, our latest and largest ship yet for Mike Filsaime’s annual Internet Marketers Cruise!
Internet Marketers Cruise 2010 (Click on photo to enlarge)
Every year since 2006, I have been cruising with Mike Filsaime and a group of our best Internet Marketing buddies, starting with just about a dozen or two of our closest inner circle friends and growing that to 436 Internet Marketers that cruised with us this year!
(You can learn more about how you can join us for Internet Marketers Cruise 2011 at the end of this post…)
As always, the Internet Marketers Cruise was organized by “Captain Lou” Edwards, and along with Mike Filsaime, Tom Beal and Donna Fox, I personally had an amazing time creating my own million-dollar mastermind vacation with my team – Andy Huang, James Lee, James Delong and Lasse Rouhiainen.
And what better way to kick off 2010 than a cruise to the Exotic Caribbeans, setting sail from Port Canaveral in Orlando to Cozumel, Roatan, Belize City and Costa Maya in Mexico.
This year on the Internet Marketers Cruise, we reunited with many of our previous cruising buddies, including Deborah Micek, JP Micek, Armando Montelongo, Veronica Montelongo, Joel Therien, Illona Therien, Mike Morgan, Holly Morgan, Jeff Dedrick, Frank Rumbauskas, Dana Rumbauskas, Ross Goldberg, Bob “the Teacher” Jenkins, Howard Tiano, Cynthia Tiano, Jennie Armato, Tom Bell, Adam Gilad, Max Action, Eelco de Boer, Gary Byrne, Michelle Galvin, Alex Nghiem, Frank Sousa, Robert Puddy, Adam Lowe, Tina Truong, Reed Floren, Chris Zavadowski, Odinn Sorensen, Tracy Repchuk, Willliam Lee, Vince Mitchell, Kelly Mitchell, Mike Deiure, Wendy Joy Hart, Sharon Worsley, Jon Benson, Scott Hall, Cindy Battye, Phyllis Eskow and Martyne Lo Russo.
Then, there are the hundreds of new Internet Marketers Cruise faces that I can’t possibly all mention, but we did get to meet and spend some quality time with fellow Internet Marketers Kirt Christensen, Jon Walker, Matt Bacak, Kevin Wilke, David Frey, Brent Hodgson, Mike Evans, Caleb Jennings, Rhonda Cort, Shelby Larson, Heather Sneed, Lucius Kern, Jimmy Sweeny, Jeff Siegel, Louise Puddy, Nick Reese, Simon Hedley, Dustin Struckman, Frank Bennett, Joel Peterson, “Big Jason” Henderson, Rex Richard, Noah Auspitz, Hollis Carter, Suhail Kahn, Bernadetta Sperrazza, Vanessa Stewart, Katie Joy, Taibi Mastelse, Christina Batten, Maurice Castle, Sherrie Rose, and Kim Huong.
Over the course of the week, Internet Marketers Cruise guests enjoyed networking parties, mastermind sessions, fine dining and plenty of fun in the sun excursions while on the Caribbean islands.
Here are some of my favorite memories from Internet Marketers Cruise 2010…

Now, If you would like to join us next year on Internet Marketers Cruise and experience this million-dollar mastermind vacation of a lifetime for yourself, look no further!
That’s right – Internet Marketers Cruise 2011 is now open for registrations!
How would you like to join us next year when we set sail to visit the beautiful and exotic Caribbean Islands of Grand Turk, Catalina Island, Curacao and Aruba?
Even though this last Internet Marketers Cruise has just concluded, I know the next one will be coming up very fast, and the cabins will sell out even faster!
Every year, the Internet Marketers Cruise gets bigger and better than ever, with more and more top notch Internet Marketers joining us for this experience.
We would very much love for you to join the Internet Marketers Cruise family and experience this vacation for yourself – There’s nothing like this and you’ll finally understand why I come back every year :)
Hello from the Hard Rock Hotel at Frank Kern’s Mass Control 2.0 Workshop in San Diego, California!
Frank Kern And Simon Leung At The Mass Control VIP Party On The Roof Of The Hard Rock Hotel
This is Frank Kern’s second Mass Control workshop and just like last year, Frank Kern pulled out all the stops to ensure the most incredible event possible.
The networking was simply amazing, with 1000 people turning out to network with Internet Marketing’s top dogs John Reese, Yanik Silver, Jeff Walker, Mike Filsaime, Ed Dale, John Carlton, Mike Koenigs, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Joe Polish, Andy Jenkins, Tom Beal, Jeff Mulligan, Harrisi Fellman, Jason Moffatt, Mark Widawer, Ross Goldberg, Peter Parks, Lee Collins, Robin Collins and countless, countless more.
It was simply impossible to run into, much less met everyone who attended the Mass Control 2.0 workshop because Frank Kern did an amazing job packing the venue to the core of what appeared to be thousands of people!
Nonetheless, the networking with those I was able to spend time with was awesome, not only during the Mass Control 2.0 workshop itself, but the social activities after the event.
Frank Kern never fails to throw magnificent events, and the Mass Control 2.0 workshop was definitely no exception!
Hello from the Parthenon One Ballroom of the Alexis Park Resort at the world debut of the Rockstar Platinum Live marketing show in Las Vegas, Nevada!

And yes, as the promoters of Rockstar Platinum Live, Lee Collins, Robin Collins and myself definitely did not disappoint!
In fact (not to break our arms patting ourselves in the back haha), we probably pulled off one of the most spectacular Internet Marketing shows the world has ever seen…
First of all, just take a look at this AMAZING speaker and VIP line-up…
Keynote & VIP Speakers: Robert G. Allen with Mark Victor Hansen

You may have already heard about the Rockstar Platinum Live Internet Marketing event scheduled on March 27th to 29th in Las Vegas, NV.
What you may have not heard about is how all the top Internet Marketing experts gracing the stage at Rockstar Platinum Live can also help you achieve your dream of living the rockstar lifestyle!
What is your definition of the rockstar lifestyle?
Financial freedom? Spend more time with family? Travel all around the world?
Thanks to my friends that I have hand-selected to be featured rockstars along with my partners Lee Collins and Robin Collins, I’ve been able to experience the rockstar lifestyle for myself.
In January, I kicked off the new year with a cruise to the Caribbean and visited the amazing St. Marteen, St. Kitts and Tortola on the beautiful Virgin Islands.
In February, my international travels continued, taking me to Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and the gorgeous island of Bali in Indonesia.
And right now, I’m in Melbourne enjoying my first visit to Australia, and looking forward to visiting Gold Coast and Sydney before I leave the country.
How would you like to live the rockstar lifestyle with me?
After my Australia trip, I’ll be flying directly to Las Vegas for the premiere RockstarPlatinum Live – Marketing Show.
And in case you haven’t heard, we have a huge line-up of all the who’s who in this business, including Mike Filsaime, Dave Lakhani, Anik Singal, Deb Micek, Matt Bacak, Mike Morgan, Tom Beal, Ross Goldberg, Paul Colligan, David Fagan, Alan Bechtold, Kevin Nations, Erik Stafford, Scott Stratten, Brian Koz, James Lee, Mark Widawer, Jason Moffatt, Donna Fox, plus a special appearance by best-selling author and investment guru, Robert G. Allen!
If there’s any way you can make it to this event, it is the must-attend seminar this year!
Hello from Cabin 5151 onboard the Carnival Miracle somewhere on the Atlantic Ocean at Mike Filsaime’s annual Internet Marketers Cruise!
Internet Marketers Cruise 2009 (Click on photo to enlarge)
The Internet Marketers Cruise is always a great way to kick off the new year, and I have been fortunate to be a part of it every January for the past few years.
This time, our 8 day cruise around the Caribbean took us to St. Marteen, St. Kitts and Tortola, which is a beautiful island on the British Virgin Islands.
As always, the organizers of the Internet Marketers Cruise never fails in over-delivering, and I want to personally thank Mike Filsaime, Paulie Sabol, Donna Fox and Tom Beal – along with Captain Lou Edwards – on organizing yet another million-dollar mastermind vacation of a lifetime!
Previous years, the Internet Marketers Cruise was by invitation only, and the only way to receive an invitation is if you are within the “inner circle” of the Internet Marketers.
One of the reasons (and in my opinion, the major reason) this year’s Internet Marketers Cruise became the best one yet is that we have actually extended the invitation outside of just the “inner circle”…
And as you can see from our group photo above, the Carnival Miracle was literally dominated by Internet Marketers who took full advantage of the amazing week-long fun and networking experience!
Over the course of the 8 days, I had a ton of fun hanging out with members of the new “Rockstar Platinum” crew – Lee Collins, Robin Collins, James Lee, James Delong, Lasse Rouhiainen and Amanda Swigert.
It was also great to re-unite with previous Internet Marketers Cruise alumni, including Mike Morgan, Holly Morgan, Deborah Micek, JP Micek, Armando Montelongo, Veronica Montelongo, Joel Therien, Illona Therien, Mark Braunstein, Scott Tousignant, Bob Jenkins, Jennie Armato, Gary Byrne, Eelco de Boer, Howard Tiano, Cynthia Tiano, Matt Mazur, Michelle Galvin and Steve Pdilla.
I was also very excited to see some of my friends on the Internet Marketers Cruise as well, like Jeff Dedrick, Frank Sousa, Simone Blum, Tom Bell, Micheal Savoie, Frank Rumbauskas, Stacy Makdad, Reed Floren, Odinn Sorensen, Tracy Repchuk, Tim Houston, and Nathalie Fiset.
However, the best part has gotta be meeting completely new friends onboard, and have gotten to know Dr. Letitia Wright, Rich Cook, Jon Atwood, Vince Mitchell, Kelly Mitchell, Mike Deiure, Arnel Ricafranca, Susanne Jorgensen, Chris Cho, Annette Dubow, Matt Haslem, Jeanette Fisher, Julio Mattos, Amanda Steadman, Sharon Worsley, Mike Mahon, Jose Soto, Vince DelMonte, Wendy Joy Hart, Cindy Battye, Clay Franklin, Phil Henderson, Juliet Easton, Jon Benson, Wayne Buckhanan, Martyne Lo Russo, Scott Spurlock, and literally dozens more that I can’t remember right now!
The mastermind sessions, organized social events and island excursions have made the 2009 Internet Marketers Cruise a remarkable experience…
But I must say that one of the biggest highlights of the trip was finally meeting and getting to know one of my biggest inspirations in entrepreneurship, Robert G. Allen.
Hanging out w/ Robert Allen on the beach in St. Marteen
I had met Robert Allen once back in May of 2006 when I attended the Enlightened Wealth Institute seminar in Anaheim, but we never had the chance to really connect at that event.
We almost shared the stage once as well in September 2007 at the World Internet Main Event in San Francisco, but that didn’t work out either when Robert Allen was unable to make it.
But this time, stuck on a cruise ship with me for 8 whole days, Robert Allen had nowhere to go, and I finally had the chance to lock him down to have some private conversations with him.
Robert Allen and I actually hit it off quite well, not only spending some time on the beach, but also in his suite along with the Rockstar Platinum crew setting up his new Twitter account and teaching him all about how to use the most powerful force in social media today.
In Robert Allen’s suite moments before he sent his first tweet
All in all, I had one hell of a business vacation, not only by having tons of fun with an amazing community of people, but also one of my more productive business trips yet – literally lining up my entire year’s worth of projects (in addition to the 50% of the time I’m already spending traveling internationally!).
If you’d like to join us for next year’s Internet Marketers Cruise and experience the mastermind vacation of a lifetime for yourself, I encourage you to visit our website now so you can sign up on our pre-notification list and be the first to know when plans for Internet Marketers Cruise 2010 is ready :)
In the meantime, help me keep the memories of Internet Marketers Cruise 2009 alive by viewing and commenting on some of the most memorable moments of the event captured on camera…

Hello from Room 345 of the Long Island/Huntington Hilton at the Three Sides of Traffic workshop in Long Island, New York!
Howie Schwartz, Ross Goldberg And Simon Leung At Three Sides Of Traffic
The Three Sides of Traffic workshop is a sequel to the Two Sides of Traffic workshop I did with Howie Schwartz last December in San Diego, CA.
This time, we were joined by our good friend and fellow traffic generation expert, Ross Goldberg, and the three of us decided to team up to reveal some of our latest and most coveted traffic weapons yet.
And as a surprise bonus, we introduced an additional fourth side of traffic utilizing the power of online and offline marketing, presented by hybrid marketing experts Lee Collins and Robin Collins on the second day of the event.
Howie Schwartz, Ross Goldberg, Simon Leung, Lee Collins And Robin Collins
The additional speakers and content were pleasant surprises for our attendees, some of whom flew from as far as Germany to join us in New York this weekend.
We always have fun at our own workshops, especially when we are joined by fellow marketing friends, whether they attend to contribute, or even just to learn.
At the original Two Sides of Traffic workshop, we had VIPs like Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Mark Widawer, Mike Koenigs, Jason Moffatt, Ryan Kaltman and Rex Wisehart.
This weekend at the Three Sides of Traffic workshop, our VIP guests included Ken McArthur, Donna Fox, Sanyika Calloway-Boyce, as well as Mike Filsaime and several members of his team, Joe Jablonski, Jason Dinner, Michelle Galvin and Lucius Kern.
In fact, on Thursday before Three Sides of Traffic started, Ross Goldberg, Donna Fox, Lee Collins, Robin Collins and myself visited with Mike Filsaime and his team at their Long Island office.
Mike Filsaime’s MarketingDotCom.com Office In Long Island, NY
We spent the day hanging out there and entertained ourselves with foosball, movies and video games.
Back to the Three Sides of Traffic workshop itself, Howie Schwartz, Ross Goldberg and I felt that the content wasn’t enough, and that we should have some social proof that our teachings were more than just theory.
Just like at the original workshop where Howie Schwartz and I demonstrated video marketing, we decided at the very last minute to do another live demonstration, this time the power of Web 2.0 technology and social media – just to prove that these strategies actually work (and to have a little fun).
An impromptu decision was made to actually take our workshop on the air with UStream, and we didn’t even really get the word out about the show until literally within about 10 minutes before we were scheduled to go live!
Implementing just a few of the social marketing tactics covered during the first half of day one, the attendees began using Twitter, Facebook and email to begin spreading the word about our live show.
Despite the time constraint we were working with, we still managed to get close to 400 unique viewers from all over the world (including Singapore, Spain, UK, Australia, and Canada) watching our show within just several minutes of notice!
We even had special visits from our expert friends like Tom Beal, Ben Mack, Pat O’Bryan, Jason Moffatt, Alejandro Reyes and Lasse Rouhiainen, just to name a few.
And as the show went on, more and more viewers joined us, and before the weekend was over, we had almost 600 views to our Ustream channel.
The viewers were also very much into the interaction, so we also had an extremely interactive chatroom that remained active during the show, and over 60 people actually remained in the room to chat even hours after we went off the air, which goes to show just how powerful social media is for traffic generation today, and will continue to be.
As a matter of fact, the sudden influx of visitors flocking to view our Three Sides of Traffic show impacted the streaming activity so much, that our show actually made it to the FRONT PAGE of Ustream while we were still live!
UStream.tv Homepage On Friday Featuring Three Sides Of Traffic In Front
Oh, and that didn’t just happen once…
Our show made it to the homepage of Ustream AGAIN the next day when we went live on the air for the second time:
UStream.tv Homepage On Saturday Featuring Three Sides Of Traffic In Front
Hey, I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty darn cool! :)
Also, take a look at just some of the Twitter activity we had with a few of the most popular Three Sides of Traffic related searches this weekend:
If you didn’t get the chance to experience the Three Sides of Traffic workshop live with us this weekend in Long Island, we’re bummed that you couldn’t be a part of all the fun we had.
However, it’s not the end of the world because the entire weekend’s content was recorded, and you’ll be able to not only access it, but also get full resale rights to it by taking advantage of our special offer that we made available to attendees and viewers
Next year, Howie Schwartz, Ross Goldberg and I plan to return again with the Four Sides of Traffic, and this time, our friends Lee Collins and Robin Collins are going to be an official part of it.
This means that the Four Sides of Traffic promises to contain even more of the newest and most effective traffic strategies for 2009, so definitely stay tuned for more information on that.
In the meantime, you can check out the replay of the Three Sides of Traffic live streaming by clicking on the play button below:
Hello from Room 935 of the Hard Rock Hotel at Frank Kern’s Mass Control Workshop in San Diego, CA!
Frank Kern And Simon Leung At The Mass Control VIP Party On The Roof Of The Hard Rock Hotel
I just spent the weekend hanging out with Internet Marketing’s top dogs, who all attended as part of all-star VIP line up of the Mass Control Workshop.
We saw cameo appearances from superstars like Mike Filsaime, Tom Beal, Rich Schefren, Jeff Walker, Jason Moffatt, Mike Koenigs, Brad Fallon, Andy Jenkins, Mike Morgan, John Carlton, Matt Gill, Rex Wisehart, Sterling Valentine, Mark Widawer, Kevin Nations, Ryan Kaltman, Lynn Pierce, Frank Sousa, Ross Goldberg, Bob Serling, Eben Pagan, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Ed Dale, Tellman Knudson, Joe Polish, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Shawn Casey and at least several others that I can’t think of right now!
I know – I couldn’t believe the VIP guests either!
All of these top marketers coming together in San Diego definitely made the Mass Control workshop a spectacular and memorable event.
But just as valuable as the networking was the incredible content delivered by Frank Kern and his guest speakers.
They spoke of the human psychology behind a customer’s buying process, and everything that defines a prospect’s purchase decision.
I was especially impressed as Frank Kern dissected the anatomy of his multi-million dollar Mass Control launch, which was nothing short of brilliant!
But more importantly than just the money is the process that can bring you more followers and fans in your specified niche.
Even though I don’t personally have a big launch planned for at least another few months, I am extremely eager to put some of this new information to use.
Over the next several days, I’ll be implementing some Mass Control style strategies to see on a couple social networking websites to see how well they work for me.
Check back soon and I’ll let you know the results :)
Hello from Cabin 8204 aboard the Carnival Liberty somewhere on the Atlantic Ocean just outside of the Bahamas at the i5 Gold Bon Voyage Cruise!
The Carnival Liberty, Hostess of the i5 Gold Bon Voyage Cruise
What a way to start off the year once again, with yet another well organized vacation cruise organized by the i5 Gold Mentoring Program.
However, as you may or may not be aware, the i5 Gold Mentoring Program has officially closed its doors at the end of 2007, which makes the i5 Gold Bon Voyage Cruise all that bitter sweet, as it marks the final i5 Gold event.
Notwithstanding, it was an outstanding farewell party as we spent 8 whole days aboard the Carnival Liberty, sailing from Ft. Lauderdale across the Atlantic Ocean to the exotic East Caribbean and hitting up islands like San Juan / Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Antigua, Tortola and Nassau / Paradise Island in the Bahamas!
And as you can see from the photos below, not only was this cruise a huge opportunity to build business relationships and strike joint venture deals, but we also made sure that we had a “boat load” of fun as well :)
There really is no better way to build these friendships than to do it on a cruise, especially because so many marketers brought along their families and/or spouses, you have no choice but to form bonds with your favorite marketers when you are a part of their family vacation.
We wasted no time at all as the fun started even before the Carnival Liberty set sail from Ft. Lauderdale Port Everglades…
Bon Voyage Welcome Shot With Ross Goldberg, Lasse Rouhiainen And Howie Schwartz
Later on that evening, our Internet Marketing group had a welcome reception to kick off the cruise, where Captain Lou Edwards and the i5 Gold Mentors took center stage to set the plans for the week.

On the last night of the cruise, there was a Carnival Legends show where the winners of a singing contest would perform live on stage in front of the whole ship.
Out of the 10 winners who performed, 5 of them were from our own Internet Marketing group :)

As you can see, we just had a complete blast on the cruise, and just like last year, we didn’t want it to end.
Vacationing with fellow Internet Marketers on a cruise is so awesome because there are just a million things to do and countless ways to build and enhance our personal and business relationships.
There were just a ton of the top names in Internet Marketing that joined us this year for this private cruise, and for the most part, we had the chance to hang out with almost everyone.
However, there was one man who pretty much kept to himself throughout the whole cruise and spent most of his time with his family, but I was able to catch him and spoke with him for a few minutes, and here is a photo to prove it:

On every marketing cruise I’ve been on, I have had the pleasure of either meeting someone new or improving my relationship with people I have acquainted with, but haven’t had the chance to really get to know.
Being on a cruise gives us that opportunity because for 8 days, there’s really nowhere for any of us to go :)
So we make the best of it by getting to know each other, having a good time and above all, building the friendships and business relationships that will last a life time.
Even though the annual private i5 Gold Cruise has come to an end, there’s good news…
Moving forward, there will be a brand new and exciting annual cruise that I will have to tell you more about in a few weeks’ time.
And yes, this means that there will be another cruise next year, and we’ll make this opportunity available not only to the “VIPs,” but also to our fellow marketing friends, customers and subscribers…
So don’t feel left out if you didn’t get the chance to go with us this time around, because in just a few weeks, I’ll be able to make an announcement regarding next year’s cruise :)
The next one will be our biggest one yet, so stay tuned for more information about how you can join us on the next Internet Marketer’s Cruise!
In the meantime, enjoy this 5 minute short video I recorded on board the Carnival Liberty (sorry about the poor video quality – my camera has been taking a beating lately, I guess I need to get a new one soon)…
