Event Update!

So we're officially beyond last Summit's event size and now we're entering new attendance territory.

Instead of using the smaller room for the event and marking the event SOLD OUT I'm gonna press forward and keep tickets for sale for an indeterminate time so we can utilize a slightly larger room that the resort has offered, one with better visuals. (Last event the visuals were somewhat hard to see for those who had seats in the back.)

This larger room can handle up to 200, but I think 150 at a max should be the cap. If ticket sales don't reach the cap in the near future, I'll mark it sold out. (For reference the last event was about 110 ppl).

Also, watch your email for lunch options. Looking to give folks several options in choosing their lunch (I think I can have this arranged so you can pick your preferences) while another day might be a buffet.

Looking forward to it!

:star::star::star::star: SOLD OUT ! :star::star::star::star:

This already is the largest Summit ever. If you still want a ticket, email the forum using the contact form at bottom of forum and let me know your circumstances. Minimally, you will be put on a waiting list if tickets shall come available, or the event size increases. I will have to verify that the room can accommodate any extras. I have never run an event of this size so I'm bit hesitant to make this event any larger!


  • YOU MUST FILL OUT ATTENDEE INFO OR IT WON'T WORK!! CLICK ATTENDEE!!! (See pic!)
  • The main ticketing service is being hosted on EventsFrame.com. Unfortunately we've been having some issues with this service. For some folks it works just fine, others are having trouble with credit card processing. If you are paying by VISA, MC, or AMEX, please make SURE your billing address is entered correctly.
  • IF YOU HAVE SUBMITTED A SPEAKING PROPOSAL BUT HAVE NOT YET BEEN SELECTED/INVITED YET, PLEASE BUY A REGULAR TICKET. IF YOU ARE CHOSEN TO SPEAK AT A LATER DAY YOU WILL BE REFUNDED THE DIFFERENCE. TO DATE, NOT ALL SPEAKERS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN OR SELECTED!!!!
  • Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable!! If you cannot make it after purchasing, there will be a ticket-swap thread for anyone who wants to offer their ticket for sale at face value to another forum member -- this must be pre-authorized by myself or event organizer.
  • Room block will be offered at a maximum of $239/night (plus typical hotel taxes+fees+BS), however there's a good chance we might get a cheaper block, details will come at weeks end.
  • Attendees report room doesn't need to be paid for until February.
  • Ticket includes, minimally, lunch for 2 days.
  • Total event size is currently capped at 95 100 110 120 130 140 150 200?

Also, please ensure to fill out all ATTENDEE ticket information (SEE GRAPHIC)

27914



Here is the MAIN TICKETING link

  • PayPal accepted, VISA, MC, and AMEX.
  • 80 tickets will be available to Insiders.
  • Max 2 tickets per person (spouses, roommates, etc.)

If the EventFrame interface gives you a problem, you can try the alternative option at ViperionPublishing.com.

If you are getting any type of issues paying, try PayPal. I wish I could ensure that the ticketing process at EventsFrame will be bug-free, but it's been anything but, and very frustrating. Their support sucks and I've already sunk-costed myself into this platform.

For the next few hours, I will monitor this thread closely.

If "that" happens...EPIC.
It is an exciting idea, a party for 150 privately catered with liquor would be much cheaper than hotel options. The hotel would want $50K to pull that off, I could do it at my place for $3K; I have a huge yard, full basketball court (if anyone wants to play pickup BB), fire pits, fruit orchard if anyone wants to pick fruit (lol) cornhole, live band, it's actually the perfect place to pull it off...I'd have to jump thru some hoops to pull it off, from insurance to HOA permits (yes, I now have one at my new house).

I hope the room block will still be available?
Should be, no problem.

I got my ticket! I'll see you folks in February! The speaker line up, as usual, is fantastic!:)
YES!! GAME ON!!!

I'll have a surprise for everyone who was concerned about my weight/health at the last Summit. Is Philip Marlowe still on the Forum?
Yes he is, but he last logged on in late January. Do we have a weight loss story??

Wasnt able to get the cash for the ticket in time. If theres another oppertunity to buy tickets next month I will definitely pick one up.
Y'know I got tired of being passive and just accepting what happens to me. I took a quick break at work, let go of my pride and called around my family to ask them to lend me some money...

And it worked, ask and ye shall recieve.

Just bought my ticket, really excited to be going. I'll see you all there!

So I guess there are 12 left?
He keeps adding more. Upgraded to a bigger room.
Yup bigger room.

With outstanding speaking invites yet to be processed or invited, there's less than a dozen. I keep updating the event registration page with the exact # remaining.

I will also push the event to the forum list here soon. With the event being 40% larger and the bigger room, it's better that tickets are available for a longer duration as it has helped reaching people who might have otherwise missed it. In the past, we did a small room so tickets would sell out in hours, and then people who might have wanted to go (who just weren't at the forum that day and that hour) missed out. Going forward, I will be doing it this way in the future... bigger room, longer availability.

Damn, would love to go but all in costs are looking like $3-$4k with tickets, room, and flights.

Not doable right now unfortunately.
I just looked it up from Dallas, Texas.

A roundtrip flight is around $250.
A room is let's say $290 a night with taxes. 2 nights = $580.
A ticket = $450.
Budget $50 a day for food and drinks = $150.

So $1,430 all in.

It's not free, but it's also not $3-4k.

My apologies looks like the tickets SOLD out overnight. Woke up and they were gone, but I added a few more.

This will make this the LARGEST Summit ever! (But not too large to make it un-navigatable!)


I've been keeping my head low. I just started checking back into the forum a couple of weeks ago. I missed the ticket sales. Is there a waiting list?
If you checked and it showed SOLD OUT, my apologies.

More tickets are now available.

I was able to upgrade to a larger room so now tickets remain on sale longer than 4 hours, LOL.

Awesome to hear that you might be able to make it.

Ok, now MJ, you can't make a post like this and NOT do the party at your house now. You're going to start a riot.

Sold out already?
Yes, tickets sold out over the weekend. Turns out a lot of folks want to go but many times miss out simply because they aren't visiting the forum on the particular day the tickets go on sale.

How many people does that make who'll be attending the event then?
150+ ... it will be largest summit ever by a wide margin.

If someone still wants a ticket, they will need to email me. (Use contact form at bottom of forum and let me know your circumstances.) I will have to verify that the room can accommodate any extras. I have never run an event of this size so I'm bit hesitant to go larger.

Just stay away from the ... what was it... the crab legs? We lost several people on Saturday due to some foul seafood. :rofl:
Oysters.

As a general rule, if you find yourself in a casino/hotel in the middle of the desert, maybe don't order the fresh seafood. :rofl:

I should also mention that as attendance increases and the room block fades out (by November I should know if it is an issue -- this is the item that really hamstrings my latitude) my event budget can increase... which means I might be able to hold a private after-hours party for ticket-holders at another venue, I even considered my house as a potential party spot, but that logistically is problematic, not to mention probably an insurance risk among other things. Will shall see!

Damn, would love to go but all in costs are looking like $3-$4k with tickets, room, and flights.
I could understand if you were from the UK, but you're from TX. A drive from TX to Arizona is hours, dependent on where in TX you are. Obviously El Paso V Houston adds significant hourage but still, not sure how the $4K comes into play.

I have yet to receive a discount code for the rooms via email.
Check your email, the email goes out once per day. If you still don't have it, message me via email, will provide.

~silliness begins here

I can’t even post about this possible party because if it doesn’t happen my hyperbole-loving soul will be CRUSHED to SMITHEREENS!

I’ve been waiting with bated breath for more info.. when will there be more info?!? Ivwannnnnnagotothepartyyyyyy

I have so many ideas about this possible maybe fabulous party..

But it’s not my house..dammit.. so it’s not like I can randomly ask for a cotton candy machine or flame throwers or little clowns to throw like in that crazy wolf movie they made watch.

I want to go to the party. Please God get MJ to have the party. Amen.

Those clowns were a bad idea.

I need to buy a new outfit.

MJ should have three hundred balloons at this party. Not already blown up. Just regular not blown up balloons.. and then he should casually mention to all the introverts that he FORGOT to blow up the three hundred balloons.. and he needs help. This would give us something to do besides worry about being at the party.

There should be darts. We could throw darts at the balloons.

I should share this list. This list will spread joy. THEN if I do spill something I can say well.. it was the little clowns fault. If there are any clowns...

Oh crap I hope none of the super successful millionaire dudes are little people cuz that would be awkward af. Little ppl are cool though and now they have Game of Thrones dude.. so they prolly wouldn’t be mad..

I wonder if there will be cake..

I’m so excited about this party!!!!

~silliness is over here

Don’t worry guys.. at the Summit I’ll be chill and polite. I prolly won’t have any energy drinks. Lol. That rule about not deleting posts occasionally comes back to bite me. Sorry for the silly.
You better be this way in real life.
I have plans

Still havn't booked my room yet. Will be doing it once I get my paycheck next week.
For those of you who haven't book a room yet because you are waiting for funds to come in, just an FYI. You don't actually pay for the room when you call. You put your credit card on hold for the room and you don't actually incur the expense until the summit! Therefore, you have between now and February to come up with the hotel room costs, hope this helps!

Just got my ticket! Thank you @MJ DeMarco for opening up more tickets.

I almost didn't get one, as my personal life and professional life have not been going as well as I would like and didn't feel like I deserved to go. However, I've got 120 days to get my life back in gear and show up in a much better place, so now this event will keep me accountable!

Just called and made the reservation for the hotel room - using the Fastlane Summit hotel event code.

As for the flight, thankfully I still had some airline miles left over. Trip needed 25,000 miles, I had 25,300 miles left! Total flight cost = $11.20 in taxes :praise:

Can't wait to meet you all.

People who say they can't get the cash:

Do you have a credit card? If so, put it on the credit card and promise yourself that you'll make (or save) an extra $449 in the next 60 days.

If you wanna go, you'll go: money be damned.

Your excitement about my attendance is humbling, MJ. Thank you so much!:) This community is a wonderful collection of experiences, philosophies and talent. I've spent the last couple of years winding down my chauffeured transpo biz and cleaning out my mental closet. And dropping the weight.:)

I look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting some new ones.:)
