Discover Why Most People Lose Money When They Attend Seminars ... and 21 Strategies You Can Use Immediately to Produce a Positive Return on Your Seminar Investment – Guaranteed!

SAN FRANCISCO, CA
I may not know you very well. But I can confidently say that you're wasting money by
Don't get me wrong.
As a lifelong devotee to continuing education, I firmly believe that participating in seminars can change your life. As my good friend T. Harv Eker says, "If you're not growing, you're dying. If you're not learning, you're not growing. Therefore, if you're not learning, you're dying."
But after training hundreds of thousands of students since 2001 and comparing notes with hundreds of thought leaders and top trainers ... I know that the vast majority of students never recoup their investment in seminars.
When you stop to calculate what you're really spending to participate in a seminar, it's shocking ... especially when you're honest about the type of return you're generating from
How Much Are You Gambling on Seminars?
First, you spend anywhere from a few hundred dollars to $5,000 or more to book a seat at most training events today. (Some of the events I've attended have cost a whopping $10,000
Then you have to pay to travel to the event. Between airfare, parking and cabs, that's easily another $400 or more.
Food and lodging? It's safe to plan on $200 a day, especially once you consider how much it costs to eat at a hotel, plus all of the taxes and fees they add to your room rate.
All told, it's easy to spend $1,500 – or more – on top of the seminar tuition!
And that's only the "hard" costs. Because attending seminars costs you in other ways, too:
You have to put in extra time before the seminar to work ahead on your projects and preparing detailed directions for colleagues who will be covering for you while you're gone
You have to put in extra hours after the event to get caught up on everything you missed while traveling
You have to spend some goodwill in your client and personal relationships for not being available when others need you
You're not at home with your family. Not only is this hard on your kids and your spouse or partner ... it's hard on you!
What Are You Really Getting
from the Seminars You Attend?
If you want to be brutally honest with yourself, the truth is that:
Of the days of potentially life-changing material you learned from one or more world-class trainers ... you remember only a few snippets of information that
Of the dozens of valuable ideas that could dramatically boost your revenue and success ... you implement a tiny fraction, if any.
Of the thousands of dollars you invest in your professional and personal development ... you recoup only a small percentage ... meaning that your participation in seminars is a waste of your time and money.
Of all the hours you've spent in the most uplifting and supportive environments available ... you're left feeling anxious, stressed, and guilty because you know you haven't followed through and achieved the results you wanted.
And it's not the instructors' fault that you didn't achieve results. The events you attended weren't poorly designed, content wasn't horrible, the networking wasn't dull.
If you hold yourself accountable for the results you achieve in your life – which is what successful people do – you know that you are the only person who is responsible for your results.
The good news, though, is that because of this, you can change your results.
And that's why I'm writing.
Take a Strategic Approach to Attending Seminars
Seminar Maximization Secrets: How to Get Maximum Results (With Minimum Human Effort) From Every Seminar You Attend provides 21 time-tested strategies for participating
You receive a road map that spells out exactly what to do before, during and after the event to ensure that you get the right information, meet the right people, and implement the
Use these steps ... and you'll recoup every dollar that you spend on tuition, travel and other costs associated with seminar participation.
Seminar Maximization Secrets addresses the core reasons most people don't achieve the results they expect and deserve from their investment into seminars.
You don't take the right information away from the event.
Attending seminars is like drinking from a fire hose – you are completely deluged with information. While trying to keep up with and absorb all of the information coming your way, you often miss the most pertinent and valuable information you need.
But with the right preparation and the right strategy for how you use your time at the event, you can dramatically increase the amount of information you gather and retain.
You don't meet the right people at the seminar.
Networking is a key benefit of attending in-person training events. Unfortunately, for most seminar attendees, who you meet is completely random. Sometimes you hit the jackpot and make fabulous connections that grow your businesses. Other times you meet wonderful people, but the relationship ends once the seminar concludes.
You don't implement the right ideas – if any – after the seminar.
Instead, you get swept away by the mountain of emails, voice mail messages and to-do's that accumulated while you were gone. You toss your seminar notes aside ... and eventually forget them.
But if you don't implement, you won't see the changes in your business and life that you wanted ... meaning you won't get a return on your investment.

Since starting an online business in 1999, I've increased my income more than 800 percent. I have the privilege of working with top thought leaders such as Jack Canfield, T. Harv Eker, Brian Tracy, Bobbi De Porter, Michael Masterson, Joe Vitale, Gay and Katie Hendricks, Bob Proctor, and many others.
I've created more than 50 educational products and teach hundreds of thousands of students around the globe via teleseminars and live training events. And on the personal front, I enjoy more than 90 free days each year – days where I don't even think about work. Because I've created so many passive income streams with my products, work has become
When I look back at the steps I took to get where I am today, I can see that the best product ideas, the best joint venture relationships, and the best revenue-generating tips came from my participation in seminars.
I can also see that there was a massive acceleration in my growth and business revenue when I started implementing these 21 proven seminar maximization strategies.
I used to attend seminars and produce mediocre results ... meeting nice people, but not making the connections I needed to get to the next level.
I'd get ideas, but I'd never loop back to extract them from my seminar notes. Instead, I'd get swept away with getting caught up on work ... and then blame the quality of the event for my lack of results.
When I started being 100% accountable
for my results, my business took off.
I systematically prepared for the event. I didn't just pack a suitcase and worry about delegating tasks to my assistant. I prepared myself to get the most I could from the event.
I started being strategic about how I used my time at the seminars. As a result, I connected with the people who could help me. And I received precisely the information I came to get.
I was diligent about implementing everything I learned at the event. The more action I took, the more my revenue grew.
Rather than losing money every time I attended a seminar ... I now produce at least a 10 times return on my investment.
Now, I can't promise what results you'll see. After all, I don't know how diligent you'll be about applying the easy strategies that you'll discover in Seminar Maximization Secrets.
But if you could even double your seminar investment ... what type of difference would that make in your business and your life?
Think for a minute about how many seminars you've attended in the past five years. How much money did you spend to get yourself to those events? $1,000? $5,000? $10,000 or more?
If you're a full-blown seminar junkie, it's entirely possible that you've spent $30,000 or more attending seminars ... especially once you add in travel costs, food and lodging, and the money you lost by being in a seminar room vs. working in your business.
Seminar Maximization Secrets will show you the step-by-step process to take to guarantee that you get a positive return on your investment.
Best of all ... you'll invest a mere $97 for access to these time-tested strategies. That's less than what you would pay to upgrade to a VIP package at most events!
