Join Me In Vancouver, BC (Where I Live!)

It’s not often I get a chance to get out and get to seminars. With 3 kids, a cat, and a husband this Small Business Mom is working hard getting kids to and from school along with all of my business responsibilities. But I have got to take the opportunity when it hits my own hometown!

I’ve been to many Small Business Meetings at the different malls that I had stores in and I can tell you that they were all quite boring. Give me ideas, strategies, and things I can use NOW to develop my business. Not a marketing manager talking quietly all about the mall of the hour and all of it’s greatness.

That’s why when I saw that the Speed Money Seminar is coming here to Vancouver, I just knew that I would have to attend. It’s an opportunity for me to get together again with fellow internet business owners AND an exciting format to unwind, sit, and see what I can apply to my own business.

Here’s a recent picture of my last get together with fellow business owners Diana Walker & Alice Seba. We had a lovely lunch at Earls about 2 weeks ago.


I also love the networking and getting to know others who are running an online business. I met Armand Morin in Atlanta Georgia a couple of years ago at another seminar which was fun. When I spoke with Armand he had some great ideas for me that were painfully obvious to me of things that I’ve tossed around and never acted on up to that point.

Here’s who will be speaking:


So I’m looking forward to seeing Armand again along with the other speakers, and my good friends Alice & Diana. I’ll also be at the VIP Dinner on Friday night along with Diana, I know Alice said she can’t make it.

So won’t you come and join us?

Speed Money Seminar

DATE: The seminar will be held on May 8th – 10th, 2008 in Vancouver, BC Canada.

It will be an information packed 3 days full of solid advice on taking you from ideas to income in just the 3 days.

I know I know, it says “Speed Money Seminar” almost sounds like “get rich quick” But with the line up of speakers I know it will be proven strategies that work.

I’m also looking forward to meeting Dr. Andrew Jones because he’s from one of the best places on earth, Nelson, BC. And it’s really neat to see someone close by doing exceptionally well on the internet.

Side Note:
Before I started my retail business, I worked for PCA International and I used to travel to Nelson and stay at the old Hotel there. It is one of the most beautiful places ever!

Anyhow, I’m really looking forward to my time at the Seminar, it gives me time away from the computer and brings forth great ideas I can implement to my business right away.
