I am really looking forward to this one
Thanks for bringing the conversation back on topic :)


NEW SPEAKER ANNOUNCED! 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.

Imo this topic will be important for almost anyone. I don't know why but I have the feeling that distraction becomes a bigger topic over time. From social media or YouTube or anywhere else the noise is getting louder and screaming for your attention.

Also I recognized the influence my phone has over me. When I want to concentrate and my phone is faced upwards next to me it's really hard to focus. Even if I can only see it with an standby screen it's already distracting me. Therefore I always hide my phone out of my view range and place it screen faced down. Otherwise it's really hard to focus for me. I already turned off all notifications of distracting apps but even without it the temptation of only seeing my phone is already destroying my concentration. Maybe some of you experience something similar.

So this will be definitely an interesting topic to me

Looking forward to it.
I'm still refining the topic, so we'll clean this description up as we do.
Since we want this to be beneficial (and hopefully not boring), people are free to send me PMs on specific topics they'd like to learn more about.

Hope to get the remaining speaker invites out today. If you are selected to speak (and bought a regular price ticket) you will receive a refund of the overage.

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...


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.

Hell yes! Great list.

Some amazing topics that have my attention!!

For anyone doubting: I promise you this will be a catalyst in exponentially changing your life and the way you operate.
As well as creating friendships forever.

Till today, I still speak about @Vigilante's speech, but even more how welcome he made me feel (and with me many others), how amazing @Red is and was and became the catalyst to life changing, and and and...
(p.s. why aren't you speaking Vigilante, I might have missed this being discussed due to being offline for long).
(shoot, I'll end up tagging everyone. But you get the idea).

The atmosphere is UP UP UP UP, smashing mental containers, and UP UP UP.

See you at the Summit

FYI: There are still 4 speakers yet to be announced.

Several have not confirmed and several have yet to be invited. If the current invitations do not confirm by the end of the day, new invites will be going out.

PS: If you already bought a ticket at regular price and eventually speak, you will receive a refund on the difference!

Another update, still some speaker invites outstanding as well as some other people who are trying to see if their schedule allows for travel dates. Looking to add 3-5 more speakers depending on who is available and confirms. Bottomline, I can't have 10 invites outstanding and only 4 slots.

Man, I am stoked to see old friends and meet some new ones!
I'm really thinking of adding a day or two to my itinerary just to hang out with some of you.

I mean, how many times do we all get to hang out with a bunch of fastlaners and aspiring fastlaners???

The VALUE we surround ourselves with, multiplies the VALUE we can ultimately bring forth to our world.

How many chances do we all get in any given year to be surrounded by other value creators???


Hello-o-o-o????

If you are or plan on being a value creator, you need to be at this Summit!

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!)

Steven VanCauwenbergh
, Entrepreneur, Real-Estate Investor, Podcaster, Multi-Millionaire @Boom
Topic: Scaling Your Business Venture, From Zero to Thousands, Or Thousands to Millions

About Steven: A 46-year-old entrepreneur, Steve is already YEARS into his financial freedom through building several businesses in the service-based industries of accounting (2019), music business (1992 - 2015), bridal (2000 - 2011) and real estate investing (1999-Present).

His unique story is a veritable rags to riches. Raised by his single mother in a one-bedroom apartment in New Jersey, he grew up with one simple dream: He just wanted to live in a house, not an apartment! A friend handed him a book to read and he sold everything he owned and started buying properties from 1999, he purchased more than 240 rental units starting from nothing.

IN 2011 he read Millionaire Fastlane and it changed his for the second time! One major principle that made him a multimillionaire was to exit low-barrier entry businesses where he immediately sold a bridal business. (www.okbride.com).

FASTER FORWARD to 2019, Unscripted humbled and grounded him to ‘what’s the purpose of driving so hard’ & ‘celebrate, life is passing’. Now he pushes himself to outsource greatly and enjoy a lifestyle he only dreams of. He now have been repositioning himself to buy bigger assets (barrier of entry) like commercial office buildings and retail strip centers. In 2019 has been his year of ‘Why Not’ so he's ventured into a sector he found as his weakness: accounting. As such, he bought 50% of an accounting firm he's used in the past seven years, having the unique position of being the first in the booming industry of cannabis.

[2] Kyle K @Kak
Topic: Leading Bigger- Being the CEO, Not the Manager.
What it takes to be a real leader, not a boss. How to inspire others, leading bigger, and executing bigger which means bigger company, and more personal wealth.

Kyle Keegan, Founder, CEO and Serial Entrepreneur of numerous companies ranging from Energy, to chemicals, to Govtech, and even consumer products. He also runs the Kill Bigger incubator program.
Looking forward to this @Kak . Having one of those days today where I feel like being a manager is just being a combination secretary/babysitter/memory device for a bunch of morons. Never going to make big money if I'm constantly getting dragged into low level nonsense.

See you in Feb!

Yes, he spoke several years ago. If I remember correctly, incredible value delivered in a comedic form! Great to have him slated!

Where's Wahdi?
You'd have to ask him, I can't have someone speak if they aren't attending or didn't offer to speak. He's a great speaker and always a shoe-in to be selected, so I definitely didn't pass on an offer, or overlook him.
