I just returned from two back-to-back marketing and financial education events at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The first was an elite four-day, all inclusive wealth conference hosted by Wealth Masters International for their M2 members. It was four days of intense education on the economy and how we can amass wealth while most people are going down the tubes. And it had NOTHING to do with picking stocks or opening a brokerage account. Refreshing stuff, considering that I’m totally burned out on mainstream investing and following the greedy wall street deceivers.
Okay. Off the soapbox. Let’s just say that I know something you don’t know, unless you were there… or you have some very savvy connections.
The next event was a one day Internet marketing event for Carbon Copy Pro members. CCPro is an educational program which focuses on teaching small business owners how to market any product or company online. They are turning out some of the world’s best Internet marketers, including yours truly. (I am both a perpetual student of marketing and a trainer.)
The information at these events was totally outstanding, but the best part of attending is getting to meet new associates, and being able to connect with old ones. Those of us who work online look forward to these events as a counterpoint to what can be a very solitary occupation, no matter how many tweets and phone calls we make throughout the day. Let’s face it, the energy of being face-to-face with someone is totally different than an instant message!
That said, here’s some photos of me and the people I spend the most “electronic” time with, masterminding on the phone and emailing and webinaring, etc. It’s always fabulous to be with them. If you’re an Internet marketer, I hope you have such a great group, too!
