Sorry I am getting this up so late, been real busy with other commitments.
Anyway just wanted to write a quick post about my adventures in Las Vegas.
As many of my loyal readers know I just attended a two day Internet maketing seminar in Las Vegas hosted by Alex Jeffereys on the 25th and 26th of Jan. Well infact I was there for 5 days in total!
You know I was feeling a tad guilty for leaving my family behind, but this was something I really felt I should be involved in and would help me move forward with my business.
Ok so I met up with a good friend of mine Paul Wilson on Thursday the night before our flight, then we flew out on Friday morning. I was very disappointed that my other great pal and business partner Paul Hooper could not join me and Paul, but due to family commitments he could not make it.
Me and Paul Wilson
As a bonus our Virgin Atlantic flight was less than half full, so we had the luxury of stretching ourselves out over three seats who needs business class eh!!
Plus we bumped into Garry Parkes Alex Jeffreys operations manager on the flight.
After a 10 hour flight, a few stellas, and some cracking films we landed at just after 2pm Vegas time, and my god it was bloody freezing.
We were in the middle of a desert weren’t we?? I thought it was ment to be hot.
So me Paul and Gary decided to ride in style and get a limo to our hotel the Mirage.
Living the life guys living the life.
Nice hotel it even had an erupting Volcano outside crazy stuff!!
We checked in dropped our bags of in our room, got ourselves all refreshed and 30mins later we were heading off up the strip to the MGM for Mike Filsaimes bash in Tabu nightclub.
Unfortunately we got there right at the end of the party, but I did stand right next to Mike Filsaime and saw Jason James. Although it seemed whose who in internet marketing was there, but to be honest I was more excited to meet all the other students.
My first time meeting Garry ‘Gazzman’ Simpson his smaller than I thought in real life great guy though.
Then I met a few of the other guys I have been dying to meet, Matt Wolfe, Joe Fier, Josh Bartlett, David Walker, David Chamberlain, plus my old mates Dean Holland and Dan Briffa.
First meeting and we were sober, and they had shall we say probably done some heavy drinking er sorry networking.
All great guys though and it was such a pleasure to meet you all, only thing I just didnt get enough time to talk with a lot of you!
Okay so the next night on the Saturday we were VIP guests along with 200 other marketers, at Mike Filsaimes club night at the Lavo night club in the Palazzo hotel.
Drinking FREE Grey Goose vodka all night long.
Ever seen that movie the Hangover? lol
When I checked my pockets in the morning I got all these business cards from guys such as Joe Jablonski, Frank Curtin, Jason Moffatt plus all the students business cards.
And I found a Tiger in my bathroom!
I Tell ya I need to get some business cards done!
I felt like a real Internet Marketer, I was living the high life for one night it was cool.
The next day we were ment to be meeting up for a drive along the Vegas strip in super cars.
Mmmm not a good idea after last night bit dangerous, so Gazzman had the great idea of going to shoot some guns maybe a little more dangerous than driving go figure!
This was a bit of bonding with my fellow marketers, although it was awesome and great fun shooting these guns. Lets be clear though, I couldnt help thinking what the power of these weapons could do to a person horrible things really! but for the fun factor it was an awesome experience though.
Okay so the next two days were the actual workshop where Alex spoke about what his acheived and outlined his new plans.
Also Alex had a great line up of guest speakers.
We heard Stephanie Mulac talking about Blogging.
Jit Uppal spoke about how he exploded his list and earns multiple thousands of dollars as a super affiliate, great presentation.
Dean Holland and Adam Speil got up and spoke about their TTS and month continuity programs great stuff to guys.
Also had Garry Parkes introducing the proceedings and Rodger Hyatt talking about his skype adswap channel.
It was excellant stuff and I hope to get the dvd.
Over the course of the few days I was in Vegas, I also met Vance Sova, Marc Milburn, Dean Oram, Graeme Ash, Athony Smits, Guy Hague, Jed Lamont, Daylynne Starr, Sue Worthingtin, Glenn Wayne, Randy Koehler, Graham Sutherland, Jean Shaw, Rob Bradley and Christine Moreno and Kevin Silva. I forgot Brad Bernie sorry pal.
I think thats it sorry if I missed anyone out let me know.
So that was it plus a bit more drinking and gambling in between.
On the last night we went out for a really expensive meal, it was Deans idea and one that I could really get used to, usually only go to McDonalds.
Left to right Paul Wilson, David Chamberlain, Me and Dean Holland.
It was a really good trip and I must say its hard for me to step out of my comfort zone. On one hand im just a normal guy and work as a postman, on the other I lead this other life trying to become an internet marketer bit surreal really.
All in all it was a great trip, met a lot of good guys and me and Paul got on like old mates.
