Vegas X3 With 10x More Lessons Learned

Last Update: February 20, 2018

So I am finally getting around to doing my blog post for the super affiliate conference in Las Vegas for 2018 and it's just something I needed to do, especially with the fact that I didn't do one for last year.

Please do excuse my lack of pics as I got carried away with other things and completely forgot to take some!

The pic above is not even the right way, so just tilt your head to the left and you will see things better, lol.

So some of you may know that this is my 3rd time making it to the conference but this is not to brag or show anything off, but rather to give you guys some motivation and most especially some pointers.

Even if I have been doing this amazing business for four years now, I continue to learn more and more as the days, months, and years go by.

I've learned a lot about the business but I've learned more about myself and everything around it.

Sorry to make it sound like a boring post but I just like to share the knowledge and adventure that we as online marketers encounter, so bare with me.

But before I get into what I have learned, let me just start off with how everything went down, since this is always fun.

Like Always...Drinking, Great Company, and More Drinking (for me at least)



Day 1 for me started a little early because I had to travel back in time all while taking hours to get to Las Vegas.

I guess United Airlines was on my side this year as I actually got to travel first class without having to pay for it.

You can't beat that!

Well I enjoyed the special treatment, with all the drinks I can have along with an endless amount of snacks, but I finally arrived to LV just in time for the Super Bowl.

Being that I was a whole day early, I had to watch the game all by my lonesome.

It was a great game and I'm glad the Eagles won.

After that, I figured I've walked the strip way too many times that I decided to do more drinking and kind of unwind from my long flight.

That time flew and by the time you know it, we were up in the loft meeting and greeting.

Like always, it was great hanging out with the guys but it's always great to meet some new faces.

Nothing beats being in a room of people that understand where you're coming from as running an online business just doesn't go with everyone else you're around.

We had the daily meetings, which included a lot of insight on where WA is headed and I'm sure everyone will enjoy the new stuff that Kyle and Carson will be rolling out here soon.

The nights consisted of more drinking, some golfing, and of course amazing dinners that I enjoy the most.

I was so used to everything and can almost predict where things are headed until you get into a conversation with another crazy person like yourself that wants to do something off the wall.

Vitaly.

He wanted to go to Zion National Park (which was about a 2 hour drive) and hike up to Angel's Landing, which is not the safest of all places.

I took him up on the offer and before you know it, I was sitting in a Camaro heading to Utah.

Yup, we went to Utah just to go on this crazy hike, which I will never forget.

From the amazing sights and an overall amazing adventure, to freezing my feet off running through some water, it was one great experience.

Thank you Vitaly for one heck of a time!

I'm sure he will have something crazier planned for next year, so I'll be looking forward to that.

Things happened so fast that we were back at our hotel with the guys waiting on us.

We ended up at the Mirage, where we had more drinks and said our goodbyes.

At that point I was already beat and went back to my room to pack all the crazy stuff that I decided to take home.

Before you know it, I was on my way home with more WA swag and guess what?

I had another first class seat!

You can't ask for a better way to end a great vacation.

Sorry if that story took a little long but I can't even explain how great everything was.

Once again, please don't mind my poor pics, but this is really all I had.

Lessons Learned


Every trip I have a great time but most importantly I have a lot to go home with as far as learning, growing, and evolving with my business.

Being a father of four very young children, my "job" can be the most difficult at times but I always get that reminder of why I do it in the first place.

We always have our private 1on1 meeting with Kyle and Carson and being able to sit there and talk to them always pulls out the stuff that I am not doing.

The first lesson I want to share with you guys is to stay focused.

As an online marketer with no one to answer to, leaves you that satisfaction but it also leaves you with a huge responsibility of being accountable for yourself.

Once you get to making some good money, you will most likely get complacent, leaving your business to take the biggest hit.

More eating out, less time behind your computer.

More play, less work and it happens.

Having fun and enjoying the fruit of your labor is not a problem, it's forgetting that you do have a job that supports this little lifestyle of yours that really matters.

So for those of you who are about to follow that same path I was on, slap yourself and continue to strive for your goals because this bug will sneak up on you and you won't even know it.

Don't settle for the $5k/month life when you can do so much more.

I'm shooting for a really big goal this year, so I have my work cutout for me.

If you haven't made money yet, keep moving forward and just remember why you joined WA in the first place if you ever feel like you are wasting your time.

WA and the overall business model absolutely works and there is really no other site like it out there.

There are way more lessons I've learned from this trip, but I think that one lesson is enough for me to wake up and smell the coffee.

As I sit at this coffee shop writing this post, I am more motivated than ever and I am looking forward to another trip to Las Vegas but most especially to move up to bigger and better things.

Thank You Kyle, Carson, and WA!


I'd like to thank Kyle and Carson for throwing yet another great get together for us like minded people as my life would not be the way it is without this site.

From great training, to great people, WA is really the place to be.

I can not tell you how true and genuine these two knuckle heads are but just know that they are really here to help and that is the main reason why WA has been around for as long as it has.

For those of you who are still questioning the legitimacy of this site, I hope you can see the true potential that the internet really has to offer.

I don't care what niche you are in, there is money to be made.

Now if you are doing the bootcamp, I hope to see you in LV next year.

I mean come on, if this dude that can't even take pictures can make it, I'm sure you can too.

But until next time, get to work, never let anyone tell you that you can't make money online, and most especially, never stop chasing your goals.

Cheers!

Thank you John for this very motivational and entertaining post, even if you didn't take great pictures haha.

I like how you and a few other people that went to Las Vegas comment that you have to work hard in this business and stay consistent -- otherwise thing will start to fall apart.

I will take your advice and continue working toward my personal goals too.

I wish you all the success this year as you set out to achieve the goals you are aiming for. :)
