I was invited to be part of the panel at the JV Alert event in San Diego by Ken McArthur. I felt honored to be included among speakers such as Mike Koenig, Adam Urbansky and other household names in the Internet Marketing arena.

The format was the attendees were encouraged to do a five minute pitch about their business. The panelist then voted on the presentation they believed to be the one they would be able to support.

The next day the person who received the most votes was able to do a 20 minute pitch to obtain more support and help in what they are going to do. We were able to offer feedback on their presentation and suggestions on potential additional resources they might use.

One of the results was I had someone approach me after the panel on the second day and asked if he could have my business card to pass on to a friend of his who had just finished his book.

What was I to say? The amazing thing is, his friend called me yesterday! We finally talked this morning and it looks like we will be able to work together.

Again, it starts with showing up!
