Woah – I’m a speaker now???

It was just brought to my attention that I’m listed as a speaker at Amish’s Magic Bullet seminar.

Wow talk about news to me!

OK so here’s how it happened…

I was telling Amish how I’m going to do everything in my power to get there, but I’ll have to bend a few things to make it work:

[7/20/2009 10:02:02 PM] Amish Shah: we def want u there
[7/20/2009 10:02:04 PM] Amish Shah: shit even if u wanna speak
[7/20/2009 10:02:06 PM] Amish Shah: that would be cool
[7/20/2009 10:02:12 PM] Amish Shah: but NO pitching
[7/20/2009 10:02:18 PM] Jonathan van Clute: lol… you’ve never seen me at an event.  Generally you can’t shut me up
[7/20/2009 10:02:27 PM] Jonathan van Clute: I’m the guy in the audiennce chiming in like every 30 seconds
[7/20/2009 10:02:27 PM] Jonathan van Clute: 😀
[7/20/2009 10:02:29 PM] Amish Shah: but no pitching
[7/20/2009 10:02:30 PM] Amish Shah: haha
[7/20/2009 10:02:34 PM] Jonathan van Clute: nah nothing to pitch
[7/20/2009 10:02:40 PM] Jonathan van Clute: people pretty much know me anyway
[7/20/2009 10:02:50 PM] Jonathan van Clute: I’ll just dump my brain if given half a chance
[7/20/2009 10:03:01 PM] Jonathan van Clute: hahah

So there you have it… I didn’t formally say “yes” but I also didn’t say “no”.  I just left it open that I’ll be there and will participate.

Well… Amish took that as a formal “yes” and added me to the event roster.  I was just told about it minutes ago by my support helper Charles and I was VERY surprised!  I gave Amish a little crap about it and he actually offered to take my name off if I didn’t want it up but I really don’t mind.

Bottom line is I’m not coming with anything formal to present, I’m just coming to learn like everyone else… but I always find that I learn the best when I teach, so if I have any chance to share anything, I’m gonna take it.

So expect to have a lot of access to me – though honestly I’m not sure I belong on the same stage with guys like Amish, Styles, and now Keith Baxter too!  But hey, I’m sure I’ll learn a ton and hopefully you will too.

So there you have it… from hopeful attendee to speaker in less than 24 hours.  LOL

  1. Jonathan!

    This is Jeff from Cisco! Man, you livin large dude! 🙂

    I’m heading over to the seminar too and will see you there! Should be informative and fun in San Diego! Can’t wait!


  2. I will be there and say hi. By the way, I have been following your work for the past 7 months since I start this internet marketing. I thought you are doing ppv instead of ppc.

  3. Damn…you’re a doer alright! I’m going because I threw my hat in the ring and was one of the HT Platinum awardees! OS! No what do I do? So, I’ll be in big time listen only mode and looking for connections…Houston…(gawd I hope so) we’re cleared for takeoff!

    And, since my current design team has taken several weeks to get me a new landing page…I’ll be trying to understand how LPGen can fit in with the “Amish system” to be able to move faster.

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts while there (your comments on the call with Srini the other night were some of the best “cut the bullshit here’s the facts” I’ve heard in a long time).

    Thank you for caring and spreading the joy,

  4. Jonathan,

    Its Bret. I’m gonna be there so look me up!

    With your comments a couple days ago and reviewing the detailed info, I couldn’t pass it up.

    This time its my turn to get the tid bit that makes the difference (sorry, that already happened to you before) LOL

    I’ll be honest I didn’t know what to think when I saw you were a speaker, glad to hear it was a surprise to you too.

    See you in August!


  5. Hi Jonathan, it looks like my knee bends again as my hat rolls down my arm in admiration of your recent “Chosen One” stature.

    I’m a very lucky to say that I too am a chosen one. I was deeply fortunate enough to selected as one of Amish’s 50 chosen to receive Hexatrak Platinum software.
    As you know I live in Concord, and I’m wondering if you are you planning on driving or flying to San Diego? Maybe we could travel together. I’m a little uncertain of I’ll be driving or flying yet. But I look forward to possibly hooking up for the trip.

  6. Jeff – Hey dude!! Wow what a funny small world we live in. 🙂 I look forward to connecting again in SD, definitely come say hi!!

    Hmong – You’re right I’m still a PPV guy. Every time I get back into PPC I’m reminded of why I hate building campaigns and I go back to PPV. LOL I need to get some interns or employees or something and get THEM to build the PPC campaigns, it just bores me to death.

    Craig – Thanks for your comments, and definitely say hi at the event. There’s a definite learning curve to this biz but with the right help I know one can start generating a nice profit within 3 to 6 months for sure. You’re in the right place!

    Bret – Great to hear that you’ll be there too! Man this is going to be an amazing event, SO many people I “know” but have never met will be there, it’s going to be a ton of fun not to mention highly educational I’m sure!

    Jim – LOL Chosen one? I dunno about that… trust me I’m no “god” of affiliate marketing or anything else, but I appreciate the sentiment anyway. 😉 I’m planning on flying down with another friend of mine, not sure exactly when though as I’ve got some other plans in August so I’m going to be making fairly last minute travel plans I think. At a minimum though definitely find me during the event, I look forward to connecting with you & everyone else!

    SD is going to be a real blast everyone… woohoo!
