The Elite Retreat 2008 is officially sold out. I think is a good example of never giving up on something. I would not say it failed the first time but the 2nd and 3rd (we actually had to cancel the 3rd because of lack of attendance) were definitely losses financially. I have learned a TON about running my own conference…. where to spend money where NOT to spend money. Its been quite a ride.

So I am super happy to announce the Elite Retreat 2008 is sold out but this post is not so much to say “hey look how everything I do is awesome”. That seems to happen a lot. Like I said above this is the first one since the first one I consider a success. But its been a lot of work. In fact I am the only one left out of the 4 original partners.

Anyway this is the first year we took on sponsors which let us do some really awesome things. We were also pretty selective with sponsors because we did not want the attendees to have to listen to a sales pitch at any time… I mean that sucks right? I am trying to make an event that is an amazing experience for all attendees and having to listen to .. even a sponsored lunch kind of ruins that experience.

I would first like to thank all of the speakers who make this possible:

Neil Patel

Brian Clark

Andy Liu

Aaron Wall

and special guest keynote speakers:

Guy Kawasaki

Matt Mullenweg

And to the sponsors! Thanks for listening and paying for all the cool things I wanted to do at this years event!

  1. Congrats! You worked hard on this and I’m sure it will be a super success. The idea of getting a small group together for “mastermind” type sessions is not done enough. Glad to see someone is moving forward and creating a space where this can happen. Also great to see that your speakers are being treated 1st class. They’ve got to be loving that. Cheers to a spectacular event!

  2. Your hard work should definitely make this worthwhile. Congrats for the sellout, you’ve got some great sponsors too 😉 Awesome.

  3. It says a lot about you Shoe, that AFTER I signed up and pad, it’s gotten even better, with Matt M. coming on board, a free Ipod added, and a limo ride from the airport too. Sweet!

    Who ever heard of adding value after the deal is done? I’m impressed so far, and cannot wait to get there…

    Thanks again!

  4. Congrats Jeremy! This really is an unrivaled event and as advertised, it really has been life changing for me. I’m certainly glad you stuck with it for one more go! Look forward to seeing you in a few weeks.

  5. Jeremy –

    Congrats! I know it must feel good… I am still a newb in the world of Aff marketing, but hope to one day come and attend one of your events!

    Almost at my one year anniversary… maybe next year…



  6. Good work Shoe! I wish i could’ve made this one but it just didn’t fit into my schedule. I am definitely going to try for the next one.
