[4] Rebekah C., @Bekit
Founder, CEOCopywriting.com
Topic: Copywriting Magic to More Sales! Watch Rebekah live as she dissects weak copy and transforms it into something irresistible and sales converting.


• The highest-leverage tweaks that anyone can make to help their copy convert better
• The most common mistakes that non-copywriters make (and how to correct them)
• Tips on how to structure your copy so that it moves a prospect from awareness to action
• Principles of human psychology that help make your copy stronger, no matter what you're selling
• Email copywriting tips, from the subject line to the call to action

RC's goal is to make this entertaining and instructive to multiple people (not just the ones whose copy is being reviewed), as she will be covering as wide as possible a gamut of useful copywriting principles. She plans to point out the areas where someone could do better in a helpful, constructive way that hopefully wouldn't embarrass anyone! Everyone who has a website that sells needs this!


[5] Danielle R., @Red
Topic: How to be a Fastlane Couple (When your spouse wants nothing to do with it)!
How to transform a solid "slow-lane" spouse; regular job, working towards a pension, wanted nothing to do with business/ideas of business into someone who now can't keep his/her ideas straight and focused. The process we've been through & what lead to the turnaround in mindset.


[6] Zane P., @ZCP
Topic: How to Brainstorm: Need ideas for a new business, a process, or a design?
Watch Zane take a few volunteers from the crowd and have an engineer lead a scientifically based 'brainstorming' session. See techniques, get tips, learn the exact order to go to get quality ideas and workable options quickly. Watch it unfold. Then talk through some of the key methods and ideas for this proven process.


[7] Allen Crawley., @AllenCrawley
CEO/Founder of Barberry Coast Shave Company
Topic: Watch and learn! Allen will review audience product-based websites for any volunteer where he breaks down and critiques their website. Will give an in-depth analysis about user experience, revenue optimization, conversion rate optimization, best practices, etc. Live website audits from someone whose company is growing like a weed!



[8] Mona L. @Bertram, A Senior Research Scholar from Duke University.
Topic: Getting Attention. Dropping Distraction.

Mona does research on mental states, attention, a new model of consciousness, and cross-cultural ideas about well-being. Her discoveries are useful and kinda wildly unexpected. This work has provided her with the ability to deliver a really purposeful presentation for forum members. Join us for a helpful, accurate talk on time management and distraction and their effects on the domains of work, relationships, and oneself. She will cover the basics without the hackneyed, disempowering myths about technological triggers, addiction, habits, and ADD/ADHD. The focus is to learn the tools to make changes and live your life, not the life that is the sorry outcome of distraction. In addiction to undermining one's career and business, distraction causes friendships to run dry and marriages to become miserable and conflictive. It also results in poor health and a shortened life. She will also touch on research on the six attentional states, and those which one uses in order to think creatively.


[ 9 ] Jennifer W - @Mutant
Networking & Playing the Game - How I Got Top Industry Attention as a First Time Scriptwriter.
From never having written a script, to a room full of leading television producers all there specifically to hear her table read - Jennifer will take you through a blow by blow account of how she convinced everyone she & her co-writer needed to be on their radar. This will include conversation & email specifics, as well as transferable ideas you can apply to any sphere disinterested by default.

A must listen if you need to contact influencers, gatekeepers, and others who might stand in your way for progress!


[ 10 ] Christopher C., CPA
, @CareCPA
Topic: How to keep clean books so you can maximize the EXIT for your business at top dollar, with easy due diligence for your potential buyers. Methods for keeping clean books, taxation issues, eCommerce accounting, etc. Good books? Get a good exit, and fast!


[ 11 ] Tim Puffer, @tpuffer
Topic: Does self-storage real estate need to be a part of your Fastlane?
Or your passive income portfolio?

Listen to a self-storage pro (with hundreds of units) who will share his expertise in this big cash-flowing business, one that doesn't require you to be on the clock 24/7. How he found his first property (you won't believe how) and more...


[ 12 ] A. Powell, @amp0193
Topic: "Finding Personal Fulfillment in Life and Business"

The presentation will be in a narrative form and cover my journey over 8 years from:
  • Disillusioned music teacher with no clear purpose anymore
  • My many failed business attempts (chasing money)
  • Building an eCommerce business to an exit in 2.5 years... and finding that success leaving me feeling hollow and empty inside.
  • Starting and growing my current business, which aligns my purpose with providing value to the world... and how, despite the much longer and rockier road, it's fulfilling at a deep level.
    Beyond...
  • My vision for the future, and how I hope to use this business to impact society over the next decade and beyond.

This talk is perfect for those who are just getting started in business, and not yet thinking "long term" or "big picture", for those who have had success and are wondering if there's something more than 4 hour work weeks and "passive income", and for those who want to leave a mark on the world.



[ 13 ] Randall R., @million$$$smile

[ 14 ] Ryford Estores, @Ryford Estores
Topic: How I Turned My Personal Frustrations Into Millions

Ryford Estores is the founder and inventor of The Self-Cut System. A barbershop in a box product line designed to help men and women cut and style their own hair while saving a tremendous amount of time and money along the way. A certified barber himself and a former nurse. Ryford has taken advantage of the "Do it Yourself"(DIY) movement in the Urban Marketplace. Understanding that the Urban consumer visits a barbershop 3x as much as anyone else while marketing his product line to promote the tools to build the confidence to cut your own hair has allowed Self Cut System to stand alone as the #1 education platform for cutting and styling online. His products have also been featured on QVC, and Good Morning America and are set to hit Military and Walmart stores in 2020!

Ryford is excited to share his story of how he turned his personal frustrations into millions. You will learn the initial steps to inventing a winning product; as well as how to market your product successfully to the masses. You will learn first hand how to operate with the confidence of a fortune five hundred company with a shoestring budget!

(Sidenote: Ryford got on my radar via Instagram as he messaged me to update me on his growing company, and to give thanks to me for writing The Millionaire Fastlane, turns out he joined here several years ago!)


[ 15 ] Roc P. Real estate and eCommerce Entrepreneur, @Envision
Topic: How (and when) to start building a team within your e-commerce company, growing into 7 figures in revenue as well as getting yourself into the position to quit your job ... get a solid roadmap to walking out of your job and into your business. Roc has successfully launched (and then grew) his mini-empire while working a normal job and is well on his way to a Fastlane Unscripted lifestyle, all under 30 years old.

Was just talking to my wife about being able to pull this off. Coming in from Canada, so call it $1,500 flights + $1,200 hotel + $500 ticket. Consensus was that $3,200 is a ton of money (and it is). But I’ll be damned if this first batch of released speakers doesn’t make me want to reopen the conversation. A dozen more to go. Man!

Looking forward to it!

I'm already gathering my thoughts for my presentation.
I hope you and other speakers have encores, where the price of admission will be buying you drinks as you continue to dispense wisdom and experience.

If you've read any of the books, MJ has taught you how to make well over $3,200 in the next 4 months...

Ya, so far this is what my plan is.

Listen to Kak teach me to be a better leader. Listen to ZCP so I can come up with a great idea. Listen to Rearden so I can invent it well, then Bekit so I can market that sucker to the masses. Then I’m gonna share a brownie with you.

As more speakers are coming soon I’m sure this loose plan of mine will need adjusting. So far so good..

Maybe we don't even need speakers.

We can just get @biophase to lead us in an ayahuasca session and then we'll learn everything we need to know.
