I just got back from attending two Live Events in a span of only 10 days in sunny San Diego, California this past week…

I am not sure what your take is on live events and what they can do for you, but let me tell you what I feel live events have done for me…

Live events are a time and place where people can get together and if nothing else, just get away from the every day grind…

Live events are where you can mingle with like minded people, build relationships, and bounce your ideas off of each other…

And what is most important to me about live events, is the ability to rub shoulders and network with some of the most successful people in the Internet/Network Marketing industry…

Like I said, I just got back from two live events in San Diego and I have another live event I will be attending this coming November…

Live events and the way an event is structured can determine how a person will benefit from it?

Each one of the live events that I just attended was structured for a different purpose…

The first one of the live events that I attended was for Empower Network and was structured more to create incentive, build excitement, and get a person motivated…

The total purpose, in my opinion, of live events like this was for motivating everyone. Everything is high key and full of energy, designed to get you excited and ready to take action…

Thus creating the momentum necessary to carry your business to the next level of success. In some cases a person may not have made their first dollar online yet. Live events like these were put together as a way to instruct and motivate you on how to take action to make your first dollar…

The first one of the live events that I attended was for a company that has some awesome momentum going right now and also has some outstanding growth going on as well. Both of which in my opinion, are just getting started, and the potential to earn with the right partner/leader/mentor/coach will give the individual the ability to earn as they learn potential for success.

The company I am referring to, you will find more information about here: http://virgilcook.com/s2a

How does the second of the live events differ from the first?

The second one of the live events that I attended was a totally different type of a structured animal! The purpose of this event was to give the absolute best possible Internet Marketing training available…

This live events theme was about, “How would you start building a business completely from scratch, if you lost all of your money, your contacts, and absolutely everything?”

There were 12 of the top 12 self-made millionaires teaching at this event. Each one in turn taught us how they would create a million dollars, if they lost everything and had to start all over…

There were actually a few of the speakers that had actually had that happen to them before and had to start all over in real life. Of course they still had all of their knowledge and contacts, but we had the opportunity to hear real life experiences and how they did it…?

Live EventsI was totally surprised when I met one of my mentors in person for the first time at these live events!

I have followed the teachings of Jonathan Budd since I first got started online, but I had never actually met him before. Well I met Jonathan Budd at this second of the live events that I attended. You cannot possibly imagine how it feels when you get to meet someone you have followed for a long time, face-to-face…

I was totally amazed when I met Jonathan Budd and he said this to me. “Virgil Cook, it is about time we finally meet. I have seen you all over the Internet. You are on your way my friend. It is good to finally meet you.”

It is awesome to meet someone like that, but even more so when they actually recognize you from the work you are doing, by helping others.

Live EventsNow, Jonathan Budd was not the only person I met at these live events. I also met the awesome Mark Hoverson, another one of my mentors that I had never met face-to-face before. And again, I was totally surprised when, like JB, Mark Hoverson also recognized me by saying much the same thing as JB had said…

This is the quality of people you have the opportunity to rub shoulders with at live events…

I also met people like Daegan Smith, “The King of never calling a lead.” Others like Lisa Sasevich, Justin Glover, Greg Gomez, JT DeBolt, Vince Reed, Max Aria, Jay Kubassek, Craig Simpson, Kate Buck, and the host of this live event, all the way from Australia, Matt Lloyd. Just to name a few…

Live events are a good place to also meet several of my team members that I had never met face-to-face either…

Live events like this one this was designed to give you the best training available on how to make a million dollars starting from scratch. Each speaker had a different point of view or approach to it, and how it should be done, according to their personal experience and perspective…

Like I said Matt Lloyd, the creator of the awesome “My Online Business Empire” and about 21 other products from Perth, Australia put on this event. This was Matt’s second event this year and the newest million dollar earner to the group of leaders above. Matt was earning around $700 a month just 14 months ago and just made last month over $200,000 dollars in a single month.

You can pick up the “I.M. Revolution Handbook” that Matt put out explaining how he did that right here. http://virgilcook.com/op/im-revolution/

So what was the main message I learned from attending these two live events?

So, what was the main message and what was the most important lesson I learned by attending these two live events? Even though each event was structured differently and each event had a different purpose…

These are the main lessons that I learned at these live events…

1. Build your list the very first thing and then just take action, no matter how stupid it seems to you. The sooner you start to take action, the sooner you will see success.

Fail forward faster…Don’t be one of those people that feels they have to learn everything first, because you will most likely never really get started that way.

JUST DO IT!

2. The main point that every single leader/trainer had to say was, if they had to start completely over…
They would start with higher ticket opportunities. They would never waste there time only offering $20, $50, or $100 products or opportunities. If they were doing it over, they would do whatever they had to do, borrow the money from a friend, or whatever means necessary to get into the $1,000 and higher priced commissions and products
Every one of them had the same key message. Offer higher ticket products, opportunities, and scale up as fast as you can. I loved it when someone said, “If you want to make more money, add more value to your product and sell it for more money.” You will never be successful trying to sell $20 products and opportunities…

By the way, i had an awesome 10 days, met some of the best people on the planet, and learned a ton of things that I hope to share with all of you. So, if you have the opportunity to attend live events, get there however you can…

The value you will get from attending live events will benefit you tenfold.

Jonathan Budd’s “Unstoppable Millionaire 2” is another one of the not to be missed live events of this year and it is coming up November 16-19. Get there any way that you can…

You cannot imagine how much you will benefit from live events like these until you have been to one. If you would like to go to this event, let me know. Again, it is November 16-19, 2012 and will be the best live event of the year, I am sure. If you want more information regarding anything in this post, just let me know.

Also leave a comment below about how live events have affected your business or life in general…?
