Clint Arthur’s “Living Legends of Entrepreneurial Marketing” Part 2 🎉🍾

I’ve been back from the “Living Legends of Entrepreneurial Marketing” for nearly a week, and I can’t stop thinking about it! I want to go back! As a matter of fact, this time last week I was sitting on a boat, the beautiful “Bateaux,” it was a gorgeous night, and I got to see the New York skyline!🌇

At Zankel Hall in Carnegie Hall getting ready to watch the show!

And what a view it was, I got to see celebrities like Ice-T and his wife, Coco, Martha Stewart, Dylan Howard (the Chief content officer of American media, who shared exclusive stories about Charlie Sheen!), Hal Elrod (author of 2 million copies sold), Micheal Gerber (of the E-myth, multiple #1 New York Times best-seller), Alex Mandossian, Steve Larsen (#1 funnel hacker for ClickFunnels, and part of the two-comma club—an elite group of online entrepreneurs that have reached one million dollars, or ‘two commas’).🤑😆

I can’t leave out Jerry Greenfield (of Ben & Jerry’s🍧) who even served me ice cream, and told the story of how him and Ben split the money for a $5 course! He said their ice cream was becoming a hit, but Haagen Dazs was bigger, so Pillsbury stopped selling Ben & Jerry’s on their trucks! That was illegal, so they started a campaign called, “What is the dough boy afraid of?” 😂 And they put a stop to it!

Some takeaways I got:

“You can’t just be on TV, you have to do something exceptional!” ~Martha Stewart

“Success is to be emotionally, financially, and mentally stable!” ~Walter O’Brien

“The greatest gift you can give to people you LOVE and LEAD is your full potential! ~Michael Gerber

“The most POWERFUL element of marketing is CURIOSITY (‘How did this person do this, get this, and be this…?’)” ~Clint Arthur

“There is a new creature inside of you, waiting to be ‘born.’” ~Michael Gerber

I’ll admit going on this trip was not easy for me; my dad has had a significant amount of Alzheimer’s, and it is worsening. I distribute his medicine daily, and do the same for my mom, too. I had to schedule for caregivers and call substitutes to teach my courses.

BUT, it was SO worth it!!! I loved every minute!!!

Below I am with Michael Gerber of the E-Myth, published in 1992, millions of copies have been sold! He says that he didn’t do everything that happened to him, he says “it did it!”😄 And Rick Warren “built his church” on Gerber (not on the Bible). lol Rick Warren, best-selling author of The Purpose Driven Life (the most popular book next to the Bible!).

Michael Gerber has been Rick’s mentor and credits Rick and says, “He is a Living Legend!”❤️💚🧡

And here are some more pics with fabulous people!

Below was on the second day after I arrived. It was beautiful and sunny with a crisp wind, and I didn’t know what to expect. I knew I would be exposed to some ‘elite’ people! Tim, the second from the left is from Michigan, also, so we talked about that a little bit, and it was a good icebreaker! Linda and I hit it off, with her being a caregiver (like I am), and having a daughter with some challenges.

By the way, the food at the Red Eye Grill was pure deliciousness!🍹🥗🥖

Clint gave out ‘Film Fest awards’ and there were actors and writers, adding a little more Hollywood!🎬

These people were so honored! ✨🎤

I also posted Clint’s live webinar on my social media a few times! It was a post-Carnegie Hall one where he gave me a special shout-out and pointed to my blog!❤️ He says I am AWESOME & QUALIFIED! I’m still smiling!😄

Author 101 University – Los Angeles

I attended Author 101 University last weekend in Los Angeles, California. It was a nice event and I had a lot of fun. My publishers at Morgan James Publishing were there, and it was nice to see them and watch them speak at the event. Rick Frishman puts on and hosts the conference two times a year. He is one of my publishers at Morgan James, and he is also the founder of Media Connect.

A few presenters that I really liked were John Assaraf, Wendy Lipton-Dibner, and Barbara De Angelis. They had some interesting things to say about life and writing. I also got to see my nieces, Megan and Fayth. Both of them live in California, and they came to the hotel to visit. I stayed at The Westin Los Angeles Airport, which was where the event took place.

I enjoyed it. Fayth goes to school in Santa Barbara, and she had a two-hour drive to the hotel. It was nice of her to pick me up from the airport on Friday, and drop me off on Monday morning. I really appreciated that and the time I got to spend with hePic14Sunsetblvdr and Megan.

The event ended at 2pm on Sunday, and then my nieces and I went to Hollywood in the evening. I wanted to do some sight-seeing, since I’d traveled all the way to California from Michigan. I had never been to Hollywood so we went to Hard Rock Café on Hollywood Boulevard for dinner. Then we took a nice drive through West Hollywood at night. I was able to see Sunset Boulevard and Beverly Hills. It was really pretty with the palm trees and lights.

Of course the weather was just perfect there all weekend!
