    Chicago
    Hello from Chicago gang!!. Loads of great information here & what a pleasure to finally get to meet so many of the abw gang face to face!! So many great ideas - so much information being shared - and so little time!!

    Today is the last day of the seminar - and I want to thank Andy, Loxly, Donuts, Scooter, SaS Carolyn, Elvin, SaS Brian, Michael C, Kellie, Danny K, Mike, and ALL of the abw'ers I've met here for the information sharing, conversations and comraderie. Looking forward to getting back and putting some of the info to work.

    Gotta get ready for the GoldenCann seminar this morning - so best to all and thanks for the opportunity to meet in person. Hope you have learned a little more about us and the standard of quality we represent too! Thanks Gang!!!

    Allen, Carolyn, all

    You all rock! Warning to all, Chicago is not good for your diet.

    I can't wait to get back to Nashville and start putting all of Andy's wisdom to good use...of course I must catch up on some sleep first!

    Thanks to Andy for hosting this conference, again you have outdone yourself and everyone I have spoken to has nothing but good reviews... and a whole lot of work to do when they get back.

    Brian,

    Nice to meet you this weekend. I have definitely come to realize that ShareASale is the real deal and long term I am sure that will have incredible benefits to all of you and to Affiliate marketing.

    My only remaining question after this weekend is how in the heck Allen is able to get up at 6:35am and write such a coherent post. Not bad for an old guy

    Old Guy???????
    Matt - all us "old" guys wake up early - you'll see what I mean one day. Just got back from a great visit / dinner and then jazz nightcap with the holdovers who are leaving tomorrow. A perfect finish to a very meaningful experience.

    A million thanks,

    Some of us were still up.... but I missed this thread somehow

    Billy, will see about that pizza...

    Was greating meeting everyone, was a nice, small group of cool folks... we handed out the ABW member buttons today, and the anti-parasiteware...

    Spent this evening listening to live jazz, relaxing, (not drinking tonight!!!!!) and I'm smiliing... (thinking about the end of the week... )

    Visting the SAS offices tomorrow One of the benefits of being here was meeting the whole SAS crew, what a trip... they are the greatest... There were lots of folks taking lots of pics, I'll post mine sometime over the weekend if the internet connection is set up... or will go find an internet cafe! Got great pics of everyone at the ballgame.



    Getting outta here, getting emotional... time to finish the transition and come out blazing next week. This was a great way to transition from one phase to the next, surrounded by friends and talking to the others on the phone.... while surrounded by ABW family... (old and new).

    A great time was had by all. Once again, Andy and his team outdid themselves and, as usual, the SAS crew was simply awesome!!

    We worked, we partied, we learned, we talked shop and we partied some more. New relationships and friendships were made, existing friendships and relationships were tightened and cemented for the future.

    Thank you to Andy and crew, Brian and crew and all of the wonderful people that I either met or saw again. What an awesome bunch of people!!

    I'm beat!! Goin' to bed now.

    Hi all,

    I just returned from this fine shindig as well.

    UncleScooter couldn't have said it any better. Andy, SaS and the rest of the presenters were all excellent. Congratulations and thank you!

    It was also my pleasure meeting, learning, talking shop (and not shop) and ... celebrating with all of you.

    AMAZING! I had an absolutely incredible three days with you all in Chicago. Thanks for being so open about your individual programs. There was a wealth of information shared and I have already started to implement some of the suggestions in our program! Thanks to everyone... Andy, Brian, Shareasale, the ABW community and to all those that attended.

    What kind of a bribe does it take to NOT have my pictures posted?

    UncleScooter and donuts, I forgot to say this to you, but the more I think about the stuff you said, the more I appreciate your presentation. I honestly think it will take a month or two to implement everything, there was so much.

    Thanks guys and thanks to Andy for having them come!

    Man, I am very jealous, wish I could have made this. Been broke for a couple months, though, money was just too tight. I want pics!!!
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Ahhhhh Yes
    Deb's post says it all. Our final evening was a nice visit and dinner near the hotel and then some great Jazz and more great conversation with fellow ABW'ers who weren't leaving until today. It was such a pleasure and so laid back at the jazz club.

    For the first night since we arrived, I actually got back to the hotel in time to get a normal night of sleep before leaving today. Just got back to my Rocky Mtn Paradise about 30 minutes ago, but just had to place one more post to say I'd definitely recommend this class and the entire experience we all shared during this four day marathon!!


    Ahh - Yes!!

    Wow Wow Wow!! Let me say it again! Wow! It may have been freezing but it was well worth it. Andy, always a pleasure, and an inspiration.

    The game was one hell of a time! WATCH OUT MICHAEL!!

    I am so very glad I meet you all, and those I already knew, you are only closer to my heart. I can't wait to see you all again soon!

    My Best and Love!!

    Hey everyone!!
    Wow, what a great event. I am so greatful for all the wonderful people I got to get to know and the wealth of information that was shared. Thanks Andy, and thanks to the rest of you!

    UncleScooter, its great to finally put a face with a name. Here's to underground bars, making music, and making commissions. You'll have to send me an mp3 or two once the band is rocking again (i hope its not an ABW secret!)

    Loxly- here's to wishing you the best of luck on your move and the best of luck at Rextopia. I was genuinely happy to get to know you better at this event.

    Donuts- You're an incredible marketer, and to be honest- I look up to you a whole lot. I'm looking forward to chatting with you soon. And man, we got to start up an official billiards team! So I scratched on that last 8-ball shot on that second game, but we made a damned impressive team.

    Kellie- Keep on doing what you're doing, ridding our happy industry from scumware and the scum that spreads it. I'm glad you liked my story about ipods and ebates, keep it between you and I-- and think of that when the scum seems too plenty!

    MichaelNunez- As I move on to new things in this industry, I'm proud to have a colleague like yourself. Here's to the success of Suluta and a great future for all OPMs.

    Carolyn and Brian- of course, thanks for the Cubs game and thanks for being such gracious, FUN people, but most importantly-- thanks for ShareASale and what it means to this industry! I'm excited to grow and develop in your network, and looking forward to watching you do the same.

    Thanks again everybody. Pictures coming soon! I have an incriminating pic of Donuts, maybe I should eBay it? Kidding!

    Lol, the freezing temp was to get you to drink coffee from andy's new merchant.

    The game was one hell of a time! WATCH OUT MICHAEL!!
    That's messed up. Thanks for telling everyone I'm a scaredy cat.

    You guys working on the cruise from Boston to Tampa yet?

    I got 3 people (including myself) from the office here already fired up to go.

    I need to know when to get my tickets to Boston!
