Dallas – Higher Purpose Mastermind

Initially I was going to head back to Malaysia on 19th May. Then Oliver Talamayan informed me of a Mastermind just around the corner – 19th – 22nd May in Dallas, Texas.

So I made a detour and extended my stay. I might as well, since I’m already on the other side of the planet I should make the most of my trip here.

Unlike the Vegas and LA chapter, I was in the house most of the time; I didn’t really go anywhere else beyond the convenience stores and restaurants within walking distance.

The 3 days proved to be productive and made up for the past two weeks of just going from place to place.

The Mastermind had just about 9-10 people; on Day 2 Justin Beasley was invited to share his insights on E-Commerce. His prime record to date: $1.7 Million sales in 50 days!

I had my next level High Ticket and business game plan nailed down while I was here, and with a 30 25 hour flight back to Malaysia I found the time to finally read up two books (Trust Funnel and DotComSecrets) cover to cover, something I had put off for a long time.

… And that’s it for my US trip this year!

Las Vegas – Bug Free Mastermind

Checked into The Palms Spring here in Vegas and here for a week!

I was here chiefly for the Annual Bug Free Mastermind and since we arrived early, we visited the Grand Canyon via the Sundance heli tour. (something that I didn’t get to do on my first time here 6 years ago)

View was breathtaking – literally!

Also got to go to the shooting range at Battlefield Las Vegas, to shoot my dream gun – the MG42!

Some shopping at North Premium Outlet (and wow the prices were premium too)

One day before the Annual Bug Free Mastermind began, we were treated to a Zappos HQ tour.

Followed by the main event for the next five days – packed with Conference Hall presentations, parties and dinners…

I didn’t attend all of them; I was sick on the first two days of the event and because I don’t drink that means you won’t find me at the pubs and bars. Still got out some good connections from the event nonetheless.

We ended the Vegas trip with a visit to the Old Strip, Fermont Street and watched the Penn and Teller live performance (second time for me!)

Next stop: Los Angeles revisited…

DBA Jakarta Live

Last year I went to DBA Surabaya Live as a speaker, this time I returned as an attendee. Joining me from Malaysia are my ex-interns Shaun and Cally, workshop student Kate, and newcomer Charis ­čÖé

There were about 70+ people attending this event, and even though I think some parts of the event could have been improved we got what we came for: networking and connections building. Plus, catching up with friends in this business from long ago.

Didn’t get much work done as Internet is sluggish at JS Luwansa and with long hours at the event. I reasoned that I do a launch almost every month but it’s not all the time I get to meet my business associates and friends face-to-face.

Spent a good 4 days here receiving luxury and pampered treatment, lol.

After the event, we extended another two more days stay to visit Jakarta…

Traffic & Conversion Summit 2016

One of the two main highlights of my US trip. This is the first time I’ve met many of the Internet Entrepreneurs and Marketers that I’ve worked with or heard of for so many years… now face to face! Feeling is surreal and somewhat hard to believe. lol

This year’s T&C was attended by 2,500+ people, and the booths were crazy too… it’s as if my email promo tabs came to life!

The sessions were great but man it’s been a long time since I last had info overload (then again, I’ve been going from one mastermind to another meeting to yet another in the last 3 weeks)

Too bad I cannot stay around long enough for Mayhem next month as I need to be back in Malaysia, otherwise I won’t get much done! And trust me, there’s LOTS TO DO and I’m already itching!

In all I spent exactly one week in San Diego. I had time to visit a few places before and after the event including the famous San Diego Zoo, USS Midway and the Maritime Museum.

That was great and all but one more stop remains: Dallas.

Yes, back to origin…
