We are Meeting this Tuesday (June 3rd) + special seminar announcement!

Hello Everyone!
We are having our monthly Santa Clarita Internet Marketers meetup this Tuesday (June 3rd) at 7pm in Barnes & Nobles in Valencia. I have a super fun meetup scheduled and have the pleasure of finding out which of our 2014 “How To” Challengers will win an iPad Mini!

I also have a special announcement about the Earn1kaDay Seminar coming at the end of June. The 3-day seminar (June 27-29) is absolutely mind blowing!

This is the seminar that changed Wilson Mattos’ life (the original founder of our meetup) and lead him to build a multimillion dollar a year business! I honestly feel it’s one of the best seminars you can ever attend if you are interested in building an internet business.
You can find out more about the seminar and who’s speaking by going here:

http://www.scvinternetmarketers.com/seminar­

RATES WILL INCREASE BY $50 ON MONDAY! The last day to get the special rate of $247 will end Sunday June 1st. If you don’t make the early bird deadline, it’s still a super bargain after Sunday.

Here’s my short video announcement about this week’s meetup and the earn1kaday seminar.

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you all there!

Only 8 Now! Submissions from May 28th – Day 19 Challenge

Painful mistake drops another Challenger with 2 days to go!

Most of you don’t know this, but my wife entered the challenge and was eliminated in the first 60 seconds into the first day… Her video and her name were never posted. (I’ll talk more about that at the meetup meeting on Tuesday.)  8-O

With only 2 days to go, I had to eliminate my sister (who won the 1st Challenge we had in 2012) because of a technical oversight/error on her part which made her postings not publish the dates properly. She asked me if I would continue to post her links (even though they don’t count for a winning drawing) so she could continue to get a link and a couple of views for her videos. I would do this for anyone who asked for this little favor and continued to take action. After all, that’s the whole reason we have this challenge.

So you’ll see Roni’s posting in the listing below, but she does not officially count for the grand prize drawing.

She also asked (jokingly) that I mention in my blog post updates that “Roni has the meanest brother in the world who eliminates both her wife and sister from his challenges.” Hahaha….Rules are Rules…

Here are the submissions in the order they were received:

  1. Peter – How to Draw Me a Teemo
  2. Tanya – How to Utilize an Article Spinner
  3. Charles – How to Address Your Architectural Mistakes with A Client 
  4. Chris – How To Shut Down Your Computer In Windows 8
  5. John – How to have a great relationship 19
  6. Doug – How To Do the Houdini Escaping Bead Trick
  7. Julie – The Happy Lunch Box – Humpty Dumpty
  8. Gordon – How to get an intro for your podcast

** – Roni – How to Use Excel – Basics 8

Don’t forget that everyone still needs to submit on Friday to complete the challenge!

Only 6 Days and Counting!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! It’s a holiday tomorrow and it could be the day I finish off the rest of my contest videos so I can simply upload and email them each day without worrying about doing any more production.

I am hoping to continue the daily routine of working at my computer an extra few hours per night. This challenge is much like the others where extra hours I didn’t realize I had have been set aside daily to not only do my entry, but also to compile the submissions and make an update email for everyone to keep informed on how the project is moving along.

I am curious to know, has anyone decided to do something bigger after the challenge is over?
