Help Us Optimize The 2019 Peak Prosperity Seminar Around Your Interests

We're hard at work planning next year's annual Peak Prosperity seminar.

By popular demand, we're holding it again in Sebastopol, CA -- in northern California's  beautiful wine country -- over the weekend of Apr 26-28th, 2019

We have a good sense of the programming we want to offer, but we'd like to get your feedback to help us really custom-fit the content to what's of greatest interest right now to our members.

So even if you're not sure you'll be able to make this year, we'd greatly appreciated it of you can take just 2 minutes to answer this quick survey we've put together:

We'll finalize the programming using your feedback. Tickets will go on sale to the general public starting January 1, 2019.

Thanks for your input!

cheers,

Adam & Chris

Ha!

Here's a preliminary draft of the current agenda for our 2019 annual seminar. It is fluid at the moment and is (very) subject to change. 

But it will give you a good sense of what we're planning:

THURSDAY, APRIL 25 -- NIGHT

  • 6-8:30pm -- Informal meet & greet: this will be a totally optional gathering for folks already in town. We've reserved space at a local pub for those who have already arrived to mingle for a bit. We'll have some finger food but you'll have to buy your own drinks. Very casual and NOT mandatory. Location: Crooked Goat Brewery, 120 Morris Street, Sebastopol CA. We have the Lounge reserved in the back (you'll be able to easily find us.)

Seminar feedback

I haven't completed the survey because there's a high chance that I won't be able to attend. Adam will hate me for bringing this up again wink  ....... I've mentioned several times previously - but never been told exactly why - PP doesn't offer a post-seminar video podcast [preferred choice], or an audio option. PP's membership stretches way beyond US borders, and it's a shame that PP doesn't cater for this membership [or for non-attending US members], especially since the technology is easily available for it.

What's the reason for not offering this?
