Imagine If Elon Musk Was Your Buddy (Vegas 2020)
I just got home from the 2020 Wealthy Affiliate conference in Las Vegas, and as usual, my brain is firing on all cylinders. So many ideas. So many plans. So much inspiration.
I've blogged before about how one of the main reasons I stick around Wealthy Affiliate is the connections you make, but I really wanted to come back around to this idea after Vegas this year. What makes the Vegas trip so powerful for me is not the food, gambling, or vitamin C showers (niche idea?).
The best part of Vegas is the people you meet and the things you talk about. The connections are priceless.
The thing about "success" online, is that it's never done. You'll get your first page 1 ranking, then your first sale, then your first $100 day, then $1000 day. Beyond that, it just depends on your goals. More money? More time? More prestige? There's never a stopping point where you're done, and there's always room to grow.
This year in Las Vegas, I had some really awesome conversations with people, and I think these conversations are going to help me make more money with my websites this year.
Jay listened to me complain about how a funnel on my website wasn't converting, and in two seconds was able to narrow down the problem.
Tim and I had a great discussion about writing styles, and how different writing styles can come off as clear and precise, or casual and genuine.
Kyle and I chatted about how when life gets busy, instead of cutting business hours he just cuts out sleep. His work ethic something I really strive for.
Carson had some great ideas on goal setting and how to stay "hungry". It's really easy to let complacency creep in, and his suggestions for some new goals to set really has me fired up.
Eddy sets a great example for optimizing your current traffic instead of always aiming for higher numbers. If you're getting a thousand visits a day and $100, he's the guy that can get $120 out of that same thousand visitors.
Chris's funnel and email strategies are something I really admire, and our chats always remind me that YouTube is a search engine I consistently ignore (and that's a mistake!).
These are experts I have personal access to. Imagine if you were friends with Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos, and you could chat with them about your your business. One idea can change how you think, or how your business operates!
There were many other people at the conference, and many other conversations I benefited from. I'm still digesting everything, and working through all my notes.
Wealthy Affiliate Connections = More Money In Your Pocket
Even if you're not doing bootcamp, and even if you never make it to the Vegas conference, the lesson to learn here is that the connections you make here at Wealthy Affiliate can put real money in your pocket.
Just one idea can get you unstuck, change your mindset, get you past a challenge, or create a new one to overcome. Something as simple as meeting someone who went through the same process and knowing they came out the other end alright can be very powerful.

90% of WA affiliate's didn't know what this swag (below) was. Can you guess?
When I'm in Vegas I have a tradition. I treat myself to the high end Fiji brand water. That's my version of living large LOL.
