Meeting Fellow Online Personalities


This last week has been quite the time for me. In the last few years of working and building my online business I had very little time meeting in person with others that I know. I often get together with Alice and Diana since we all live here in Vancouver.

Meet Up With Yaro Starak

Yaro recently mentioned on his blog that he was coming to Vancouver before he heads off to Toronto. I have to say that it was a really great time to meet him. I also met with several others and had a great time chatting it up with David at the end of our table as well. John Chow was there but I was at the other end of the table so we didn’t have any time to connect.

My husband Leo came along with us and sat right next to Yaro, it helps because Leo does his own thing so it was nice to welcome him to my online world for a bit. Leo left with some ideas of his own so who knows when we’ll see what he comes up with.

The one thing that I did notice is that when you have an online connection with someone or have done business with others online, that connection extends in person as well. It’s definitely fun to come together with others who are online business owners.

I also attended the Speed Money Seminar last weekend. Again, it was great to spend time with other online business owners and learn from them as well as the speakers. I am really growing to like Armand Morin, super nice guy and he’s really funny too! I’ll be sure to post on that seminar shortly.

So why would I attend these? Well, I am a people person naturally. I used to love helping our customers and chatting with others. Some times I tend to get a bit loud so I have to really keep myself “in check” at times. Plus meeting others who are doing the same type of business to me is also a learning opportunity.

I love business, have been doing it for a super long time. I also really enjoy learning new technologies and creating income for my family. The best part is that I’m at home with my kids, I’m very blessed.

It was a great time to meet with Yaro, you can tell he is a very laid back person who seems genuinely interested in who you are and what you are doing. I can see why he has such a great following because his personality really shines through.

We all have our own personality, and I encourage you to let your own business personality come through and show people who you are and what your company stands for.


  1. Gosh I couldn’t agree with you more Vera. Whenever I attend any such seminars I find it definitely seals the relationship. I could be working with someone for years and be pretty buddy buddy online but once you meet it kinda solidifies it. Makes the glue between you stronger… I know it sounds corny but true. Can’t wait to meet you.

  2. Thanks for commenting Lynette.

    Yes for me as well it makes perfect sense to meet with people I have done business with or people who I would like to partner with in the future. I find it interesting too how the online relationship actually does extend offline as well.

    I remember back Alice posted on her blog about whether people give off a certain persona online and then offline they are different people. From what I’ve seen, the personality you see online is just what you get offline too.
