Any chance we can pay for a live stream?
As good as all the speakers are, a lot of the value comes from talking to folks outside of the sessions. The conversations in the hall, during dinner, at the bar, etc.

A live stream wouldn't get you that.

I want to go, but I feel like I don’t deserve to go based on my forum MIA-ness and lack of actual business related productivity :happy:

Somebody tell me I’m wrong!

So far it looks like none of those dates coincide with a trade show so I would be could to go!

As always, I'm in and available to speak.

Topics I could speak on:
  • Revenue optimization (includes website and conversion rate optimization but not just)
  • Email marketing
  • Building out a wholesale channel (tips, pitfalls, finding a showroom/road reps, etc)
I vote for "Building out a wholesale channel."

I can't give a final answer right now as I don't know if I'll be in the states but you can definitely consider me one of the 50/50s!

@ChickenHawk transition from the gerbil wheel to independence
Aw man, I'm so honored that you'd even think of me for this! Alas though, I'm still running along the wheel more frantically than ever. But I DO know I can do better, so I'm going to put this on a list of things I'd like to do at a later Fastlane Summit, when I've done a better job of overcoming these latest challenges of self-publishing.

I just KNOW there will be a great story to tell. But first, I've got to make it reality. *Cracks whip on self...*

Still though, THANKS, seriously!

I'll bite.

Get your a$$ back here and participate, get your a$$ to the summit, and get your a$$ in gear and make progress on something.

Anything.

The summit features a spectrum of people. Everything from millionaires to Joe job wage cucks. The unifying factor is the mindset and culture, not any particular level of success.

Can I sell off my ticket at cost if I can't go?

My schedule is usually created 2 weeks out.

I'd love to be there, but committing to something that's 5 months away is difficult considering that I don't know which part of the world I'll be in.

The total cost of the event is around $1000. That's out my range. Any chance we can pay for a live stream?
I'm gonna get shit on for this, but can this paid stream be a thing?

I got a strong no from my wife, as I haven't taken a day off in 3 years (including our wedding day and no honeymoon). Now I have to take 2 weeks off next summer just for asking, but that's another story...

I had the same concern but after thinking it over I feel it’s well worth the commitment.

I’m in.

submittal for a presentation:
@MJ DeMarco at a recent mastermind event, i spoke about
'how to brainstorm' .... we took someone that needed an idea on a business to start and i did it at the white board .... stopping along the way to talk about the science / method / etc.
it was a big hit and got everyone fired up and going

i could pull 6 or 8 people from the crowd, do it with them as the lab rats, and show the method to everyone

That sounds awesome!

Can I sell off my ticket at cost if I can't go?
Yes, tickets can be resold at cost if someone can't make it, however such transfers would need to be approved prior.

To you newbs (not aimed at any one poster in particular) if you plan to attend this, increase your forum presence and your participating and your sharing 1,000% between now and then so people can be interested in you.

There was one guy one year that came, nobody knew who he was, he didn't speak, he literally went off somewhere on breaks (which is really where the magic happens) and we still don't know exactly what his story was.

Don't be that guy.

If you want a shot at tickets, first you have to be an insider. Insiders go first, and the event has a likeleyhood of selling out on the inside.

Second, don't be that guy.

It's one thing to creep on a forum. It's a whole new thing to be able to meet some of these people in person.

It's a third thing to be able to add them to your contacts list AFTER the event.

And if you don't make at least one life long friend in Phoenix that weekend, you've done it wrong.
Agreed. Hope to be more active around here moving forward.

I would be willing to speak. May need to crowdsource the topic a bit (so that people are actually interested. Finance stuff tends to bore most).

Possible topics:
- Keeping clean books and how they help you exit your business for top dollar
- A variety of topics around US taxation (depends on attendee demographics)
- E-commerce accounting, margins, profitability, etc
