Breaking up the Boys Club in Vegas

Last Update: February 01, 2016

I just got back a few days ago from the Super Affiliate Conference in Las Vegas. I know maybe you’re all already sick of hearing about the Vegas trip but being my first time I really would like to share my experience.

Balcony view from Kyle and Carson's Skyloft! Beautiful!

Attending was a huge deal for me because I don’t normally branch out from my comfort zone, and I was honestly pretty nervous going in. But, I knew this was an opportunity that would be stupid to pass up just because I was a bit uncomfortable so I ended up bringing my sister along. Because let’s be real - the idea of flying across the country to Las Vegas (of all places) completely alone was terrifying.

Making a long story short, the experience was awesome to say the least. Everyone was so nice, welcoming and they were just all around good people.

Part of the group (didn't get a photo of everyone) Left to right: Pete, Amanda (Steve's wife), me, Kyle, Nathaniel, Carson, Vitaly and Alex

It was great to meet Kyle, Carson, Jay as well as the rest of the super affiliates. I ended up being the only female from WA to attend (need to change that next year ladies!!) but I brought my sister along and Steve’s wife, Amanda, was there was well so it wasn't a complete guy fest lol.

It was an incredible honor to have the privilege to sit around the table with these guys and hear about future plans for WA as well as have discussions about what could be done to improve the community and better help everyone here.

Kyle & Carson Are REAL!

I know some people have their doubts that Kyle and Carson are real people, but having hung out with them in the flesh I assure you they are. I even got photo proof! Lol

It’s clear these guys are extremely passionate about the WA platform and striving for continual improvements to make it a better and more helpful experience for everyone. They’re working day in and day out to help YOU succeed online. That really is something to be said for this industry - it’s rare to find that level of sincerity, commitment and dedication to helping people within the world of internet marketing.

WA is only changing for the BETTER

I’ve been here for 3 years now and I’ve seen the community evolve so much for the better. The process is extremely simplified, the training is better, the help is faster and they’ve even added their new domain platform which makes everything so much easier for newbies.

If you’re ready to commit to an online business, WA is the place to be and it’s only going to continue to improve in the future.

I seriously cannot thank Kyle and Carson enough for their generosity, everything you did for us was amazing and you really spoiled us all! I’ve never stayed in a hotel room with 2 sinks, 2 showers, 2 TVs and a living room! Nor have I ever hung out in a 7,000 sq ft Skyloft with a balcony view of the city!

I can honestly say I’ve returned a better entrepreneur because of it. I’m rejuvenated and more motivated than ever to grow my business in 2016. If I get invited again next year I’d even be comfortable enough to attend solo!

What a great experience ... so glad you were able to get outside you comfort zone Wendy. Did you know going in that you were the only female SA that would be in attendance?

From time to time I follow whose making Premium referrals from the Activity Dashboard, and expected to see a few more females in attendance. Is this just a function of gender member statistics at work or is there something else?

No, I didn't know going in I'd be the only female from WA but I had a sneaking suspicion. Maybe next year there will be more :)

I actually asked K&C about that, and they said there's just much more guys doing bootcamp and promoting WA than girls. Girls are more likely to seek out a passion niche or interest than "chase the money" so to speak. There are definitely other females with bootcamp style sites out there, but I think the numbers just represent the proportion of males to females in this particular niche.

Nice recap Wendy! Glad you and Emily had a good time. It was great getting to meet you and we'll beat the craps table again next year!
Reply
wendyjane Premium
Thanks Steve! Yeah, well I at least had a good time... apparently Vegas isn't Emily's scene so that part was sort of stressful for me constantly worrying if she was ok... I think next year I'll just fly solo if I get invited.

It was great meeting you and Amanda as well. I want to to thank you so much for being so nice and initially reaching out to us on the first day - it really helped ease the transition. Also, thank you for being my craps teacher.. lol. And yes, we will beat it next year! :)

Ahh this is so awesome. Hardly recognized Nathaniel! He looks a lot different from his older pics.. maybe it was the lighting or something. WA is amazing though. As I sit here thinking about how far i've come and how much potential there is for growth, I can't help but smile. What an incredible community. I've had my ups and downs, but I knew something was different about this place when I first joined..

Anywho, great blog!

Lol! Yeah I think that might not be a very good picture of him though, he has camera flash eyes!

I think we've all had our share of ups and downs, we are only human. WA is totally amazing though and definitely different than the rest. Good luck in the year ahead Stuart!
