This week has been interesting. I left Lincoln with a terrible sore throat at 5am Sunday morning on the way to Affiliate Summit. I had several delays…. bleh traveling from Lincoln… but got in about 5pm Eastern.
As soon as I got to my hotel in New York City I went to hang out and meet people for a bit then went back to my room to do some final prep work on the much hyped Facebook Advertising keynote style presentation I was giving on Monday. I was so exhausted and sick I passed out… then woke up at like 11pm. Wide awake and still pretty sick. I was pretty bummed about being sick. I had worked really hard on my Facebook Advertising presentation and was nervous I was not going to have any voice to give it.
All was well Monday morning. My sore throat and runny nose were completely gone. I felt great. I went over my slides a bit and headed down to get some breakfast. I met a lot new people in the lobby on the way out of the hotel… which took about a hour, but its always awesome to meet people. I tried to keep it short though cause I was so hungry…
For breakfast I had a corned beef hash pancake omelet. Was awesome.
Back to my room to go over my slides again… talked to a lot of people in the lobby trying to make it to the elevator. So much for checking my slides ;). Got back to my room about noon. Quickly went over my slides then went down to get setup for my presentation.
When I got the the room there was no pc… and I didn’t have a hookup for my mac. DOH. But after calling Missy Ward she said they hide the laptops during lunch so nobody steals them. Crisis averted!
I think my session went pretty well. I surprised everyone and 1) gave away DVD’s with some video’s from the Facebook Advertising module of the ShoeMoney System and 2) wore my new Adidas red jump suit ;).
There are some good writeups about it :
and it wouldn’t be a ShoeMoney session if it did not start with John Chow throwing shit at me (LOL) :
Shortly after I had to catch a train to make some meetings in Long Island…. which was a $350 cash ride or a $14 train ride. I opted for the train. But I had never in my life before taken a train.
What an adventure. Penn station was a little intimidating at 5PM. Talk about a rat race. It was pretty crazy until I actually got on the train. At first I was thinking like damn I can’t believe so many people take these trains hours a day to work… everyday… Then I looked around and noticed most people were napping. Since a lot of the trainride was in a tunnel there was no cell phone reception. I actually was able to just chill. It was nice.
