Unfortunately WA Vegas 2018 Wasn't What I Expected.

Last Update: March 09, 2018

It was even better this year!!!! Gotcha!

That's WA ad copy training at work people. Lol On a serious note, last year my father passed away from lung cancer. So I couldn't make it to Vegas. 2016 was a very rough year for me and I could have used the distraction & being around the WA Super Affiliate family. But it wasn't meant to be.

This year I was able to come back and I had certain expectations. But to my surprise Kyle and Carson surpassed them yet again. So what went down?

The Perks

As you may or may not know, Kyle and Carson fly you and a guest out to Vegas. Needless to say the view was awesome up there. Lol

Kyle and Carson spare no expense and put their super affiliates in an MGM Grand Hotel suite. And the rooms are probably bigger than some people's apartment with amazing views.

And it's so damn comfortable, me and my best friend found it hard to leave sometimes as you can see below. Lol

I've been to the MGM many times and only this year I discovered the pool.


The Food

Kyle and Carson took us to a The Prime Steakhouse in the Bellagio hotel where you could see the world famous fountain show.

Unfortunately, I was so damn hungry, I forgot to take pictures, but I'm sure the other super affiliates probably did.

The Entertainment

I can't say I'm a big golfer, but I definitely had a better appreciation of the sport after Kyle and Carson took us to Top Golf which was a driving range that made golfing fun for everyone. My hand and eye coordination aren't the best so I sucked. But I still managed to have a lot of fun trying to wack the balls and getting my frustration out. Lol

The Inspirational End

Kyle and Carson surpassed themselves this year by renting a private villa in The Mirage hotel that Michael Jordan recently used to celebrate his 50th birthday.

Watch the video here on YouTube.

This thing was amazing. First of all you need to be escorted in via a private, unassuming entrance to even find this place.

There was a private pool, fireplace, chefs, butlers, drinks, food, games and an awesome magic show. We all swore the magician was in league with the devil because of some of the tricks he was pulling. For instance, he was able to unlock my iPhone without me giving him my password. Needless to say I felt uncomfortable and quickly changed it.

The People

Eddy with a y, Steve aka "IvetriedThat", Ian aka "Pribs", "Vitaliy"

I discussed a lot of the lavish accommodations and events above. Don't get me wrong that stuff is cool. It makes you feel like a baller and a millionaire. It's very humbling and inspirational to see what hard work helping people can lead to.

But why I really love the Super Affiliate Vegas conference is the people. You may or may not know it, but I'm an introvert. I'm not really into the whole "people" thing. Lol. But I love being around the other Super Affiliates because of their positive energy, humor, intelligence, etc. I can go on and on but then it would just get weird. Lol

In any event when you're in this business not a lot of people understand what we do. They assume things like we're scamming people or selling drugs because some of the Super Affiliates do this internet marketing business full time. When people don't see you, have a 9-5, they start to wonder.

So it's very refreshing to discuss our shared experiences and challenges we face in this business. Obviously, being part of the WA community, we have each other online. But being around each other face to face brings a new dimension.

I've developed some great friendships with these folks. So I look forward to seeing them from that perspective. We have a lot fun cracking jokes and hanging out. But we also share knowledge and tips that help expand our business. Some of these tips have literally led to thousands of dollars per year for me. Shout out to Steve aka IveTriedThat and Nathaniell!

It's things like that which only happen when you can rub elbows with some smart business people that are all about helping you. So it's not just about the lavish stuff. It's about the friendships and sharing of knowledge that can take you to the next level.

What's Next?

During our conferences Kyle & Carson revealed a lot of great things coming to WA that are literally going to shake this community up for the better.

I don't want to give a lot of details because things roll out at different times and some things may not. That said, I saw and heard about some things that will help people make money sooner, help you get content done faster, and so much more I can't dive into. I feel like a kid at Christmas that knows all these gifts are coming and I have to wait to unwrap them.

At the end of the day, you should know we are not just out in Vegas living it up. We were also working to figure out how to keep pushing WA forward and making it easier for everyone to succeed. For my game of thrones fans, "Winter is coming". But more like a fun, happy Winter wonderland not an attack of a cold blooded army of zombies.

For those of you who don't understand my nerdy show reference, the translation is that Good things are coming and they're big.

What About You?

Hopefully this all inspires you to step up your game. I would love to see even more super affiliates, especially the wonder women of WA. Ladies you're under represented at these events. There is absolutely no reason why there aren't more female super affiliate. Considering that you're probably super women in your own homes because you manage so much. That said, you have access to the same training as everyone else and can achieve the same level of success.

For those of you stuck trying to choose a niche, maybe now is the time to consider doing the affiliate boot camp. There are millions of people on the internet that need guidance on finding a legit way to earn money online. And you can help them by promoting WA. No, it's not saturated. Remember what I just said, there are millions of people that need this help. You only need to reach a fraction of a percent of them to earn a full-time income. There is enough room for all of us.

Stop telling yourself lies about why you can't and shouldn't do this. If this simple Simon guy from the Bronx, NY can do it, anyone can.

Carson, "Eddy with a y", Kyle

Next year, it should be you in this picture with Kyle and Carson instead of this tall, dark, sexy chocolate man.... I'm just kidding. But I am "dead ass" serious that you should be with these guys next year.

They can help you take your life to another level like they have for me and the other Super Affiliates. So stop making excuses and make life changes instead.

Until next year,

Eddy with a y

Thanks Eddy with a y, I enjoy your posts and especially this one... I've been stumbling around for awhile now, making sites for other people while mine was stagnant. Niche choice was hard for me, and then trying to find my target audience turned out to be in conflict... but now I am putting it all together with the bootcamp training along with the new super affiliate group... committing now to be a part of the Vegas elite in 2019!!!! See you there!!!
Love, Darla

Finally a 2018 Vegas post! :) Thanks Eddy for your recap and sounds exciting what's to come to WA.

There's definitely a group of ladies that are in the process of getting to Vegas, more than I have seen previously so hopefully Vegas 2019 & 2020, you'll see some ladies there! ;)

No newly inducted Super Affiliates in your pictures? How many made it this year (old & new)?

Glad you had a great time!

Hey Grace,

I'm happy to hear more of the wa ladies are on the way.
Yes there were new faces and you'll see them in their own posts or other WA super affiliates posts. I just happen to be a little shy to ask to take a picture with the new people. It took me years just to warm up to the people you do see in the pictures. Lol

I'm an introvert that can extrovert for limited amounts of time. But I am actually shy. I just force myself out my comfort zone. Lol

It's easy being online, especially on topics I'm interested in, it's a different story in person. :)

wow the weather looks amazing by the pool!

ok to be honest it was the wild west in here with you guys gone, I could send you some pics too that made me hope there are some serious plans for cleaning up the ambassador system and membership dashboard in here, or I wonder who our target audience ultimately is gonna be going forward

We did discuss some of the problematic members. Kyle and Carson are adjusting certain things to address this. But folks should focus on their business sites and less of the high school stuff that may be hapening . We have a community of over a million users. You're bound to have a few bad apples like any community with so many people.

Hi, Eddy with a y -

I must say, I caught on to your tricky title right away. I really couldn't imagine it being a disappointment. Unfortunately, the iimages are not showing up for me, either.

I am going through Bootcamp training, with the goal of being in Vegas next year. With all the ladies I see taking Kyle's training, hopefully we will be better represented then.

LOL. I guess you weren't fooled.
I just fixed the images. So hopefully they work for everyone now. The video is still a work in progress. And I do hope the WA women are better represented next year.
