Things I Learned at jvAlert Live Denver - Part 2

I know I promised I would give daily updates. But one of the things I learned is that you can't go to presentations all day, network all night, and still be coherent enough to write. The human body requires at least a few hours of sleep per night - or at least when they do when they are as old as mine. And so I told myself I would share everything the minute I got home. But Mother Nature and the electric company had other plans. If you've been following the news then you know our little corner of the country has been battling storms and flooding and power outages. But the sun is finally shining and I have cleaned up the mess and repaired most of the storm damage and now at last I have time to sit down and write.

Fortunately, the information you get at jvAlert does not go out of style.  The people you meet there are experts in their fields and what they share has real lasting value.  So even though it is late, it is not TOO late.  So here it is:  Things I learned at jvAlert Live Denver Part 2!

1.  If you are an author - or if you aspire to be an author - you need to be at Author 101 University in October in Las Vegas.  If you want to know what publishers are looking for, how to get your manuscript read even if you haven't published a thing yet - and meet David Hancock of Morgan James Publishing (shameless plug for you David!), register now

2.  Your brand is the way your core customer should feel about your business.  Be focused and consistent in your message and people will remember.  Present yourself differently each time and no one will know who you are.  (Honey and Blaine Parker - Slow Burn Marketing).

3.  People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it. (Richard Weiler - eVision Marketing).

4.  If you take care of your customers - above and beyond what they expect - they will take care of you.  (Ray Edwards - Direct Response Copywriter, Speaker, Author, and Marketing Strategist).

5.  Outsourcing = Freedom!  (Daven Michaels - 123employee).

6.  It is possible to greatly lower the risk for diseases often thought of as an inevitable part of the aging process. (Kay Rice - Nutrition and Meditation Expert and Yoga Instructor).

7.  By eating one button a day of a mushroom you can reduce your risk of breast cancer by 64%. (Aimee Piacentino - Holistic Health and Wellness Coach).

8.  Learning to juggle can change your life forever!  Don't believe me? Just ask Larry!

9.  You can pack a survival kit in an Altoids box!  Don't believe that either?  Just ask Survivor Jack!

10. We all have an impact - whether we want to or not.  (Ken McArthur - Internet Marketing Expert and Creator of Impact).

This is just a small portion of what I learned and only a representative sample of the wonderful people I met at jvAlert Live in Denver.  But it's enough to demonstrate why these events are so valuable.  The next one is in September in Scottsdale, AZ.  It's not to late to register.  Don't miss out!
