OMG :: I am Going to Elite Retreat!!!


Small Business Ideas Forum

A friendly place to find help & encourage one another

Holy cow!

I just got an email from Lee Dodd!! I was the chosen winner of a free ticket to Elite Retreat next week in San Francisco!!!

Please bear with me if there are typos in this post, because I am so FLIPPING excited I can hardly type! As in, I screamed and jumped around the house when I found out - my poor kids thought I had lost my mind! :D

Do you have any idea how cool this conference is? I have had my heart set on going ever since they announced it. There will only be 30 participants in the room. And we will be getting one on one consulting from the following amazing people:

Guy Kawasaki

Lee Dodd

Jeremy Shoemaker

Darren Rowse

Kris Jones

Neil Patel

Aaron Wall

Now I’m off - I have to figure out travel arrangements because I have to be there Monday morning!


THANK YOU Elite Retreat guys! THANK you so much!! :D

    Wooohooo! Congratulations - very excited to finally be able to meet you!

    Can’t wait to meet and work with you.

    I have to admit - I was stoked myself when I heard you won!!!

    Wendy - I heard that you get to bring a young blogger (22 and under) with you in order to assist you and umm carry your bags and bring you water. You know, someone to just stand there and look cute. I don’t know if you know anyone that fits those qualifications, but I am more than willing to help you look!

    On March 14th, 2007 at 5:05 pm, Wendy said:

    Alex, I’ll shrink you down with my Willy Wonkanator and you can stow away in my purse for the event.

    Shhhhh - don’t tell anyone!


    To everyone else - thanks SO much! I’m feeling a little high right now - thank god I gave up the drugs when I was 18!

    I don’t suppose you want to let us all know what you exactly said in your submission to make them pick you out of the, no doubt, hundreds of submissions.

    Good for you!

    Can’t wait to read about your experiences!

    Wendy - CONGRATULATIONS!!! This is so radically awesome and I am so happy for you!

    I got a great picture of you in my mind jumping around the house and the kids looking on with those my-mom-is-crazy-and-that’s-why-I-love-her-but-don’t-tell-her-that looks!! Heehee (I know those looks well!)

    Have a great time and hurry home and let us in on what you can!!

    Well done, Wendy!

    I had in mind to try out for this competition too, but the airfare from here in Melbourne would still have made it prohibitive :(

    Have a rage!!

    Booyah Wendy! Times 100.

    Your kids wondering if you’re crazy … I know that feeling!

    Take this and run with it - you’ve just been given an incredible golden ticket.

    On March 15th, 2007 at 12:00 pm, Alex Shalman said:

    All this talk of willy wonkanotors and golden tickets makes me want to reach for a chocolate. I think Wendy might have lost it - I’ve tried to e-mail her a couple of times since she’s won this thing and nothing. She probably went out and celebrated last night and had one too many =)

    On March 15th, 2007 at 1:23 pm, David Airey said:

    I just read about that over at ProBlogger.

    I hope you’ll let us all know a few tips you pick up along the way! ;)

    Oh Wendy, I’m so pleased you won! I really can’t think of anyone wwho deserves it much more than you… Have a fantastic time - be sure to bring us back plenty of juicy tips and insider information too.
