Rather than sprinkle these announcements around, I figured I’d just load up one post. Hope to bump into some of you at one of these!
Keynote with Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park in Las Vegas
I’ll be doing an opening keynote with Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park fame at BlogWorldExpo in Las Vegas, Sept. 21st at 9am. Hosted with Rohit Bhargava of Ogilvy Worldwide, it’s going to be a blast. Here’s what we’ll be covering…
Learn what it takes to create You, Inc. — whether for yourself or a company — online and offline in a crowded world. What are the right and wrong (and best) ways to get attention? What are the most important decisions? Where do blogs fit in, and are they ideal or outdated? How do you parlay “internet fame” into major media?
I’ll be taking a ton of notes at this conference. Lots of heavy hitters will be in attendance to share their experiences with blogging, monetization, PR, etc.. Here is code you can use for 20% off registration: 4HVIP
Inc. 500 Speaking with Inc. and Fast Company Editor-in-Chief
Prior to Vegas, I’ll be speaking Sept. 19th at 3:30pm in DC with John Koten, CEO and editor-in-chief of Mansueto Ventures (Inc. and Fast Company magazines), at the Inc. 500 Conference. Here is a sample of what we’ll cover in our fireside chat:
Called the “Indiana Jones for the digital age,” Ferriss is author of the #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, The 4-Hour Workweek. He has become almost as famous for his use of social media to rocket his book to bestseller status as he is for the book itself.
Find out the back-story to his book, what he wished he had included, and why he thinks technology such as email, instant messaging and PDAs complicate life rather than simplify it. Still have burning questions? The second half of the session will be dedicated to an interactive Q&A period.
I’m hoping to meet a number of the speakers, including Jim Collins (Good to Great) and Elon Musk (PayPal, Tesla Motors, etc.). Bill Clinton spoke last year, and there should be some fantastic sessions.
The 4-Hour Workweek Home: Now in 3-D
My house, where I wrote 4HWW, is on the market! Check out the virtual tour here. Search MLS Number 80825680 on www.mlslistings.com if that doesn’t work. The zebra print carpet isn’t mine, but I’m willing to include the best bed ever built (just look at the frame!).
4HWW Madrid Party in Two Weeks — Sept. 25th!
Por fin! On Thursday, September 25th, I’ll be hosting a blow-out 4HWW party in Madrid. Tickets are free and limited to the first 150. Better to register earlier rather than later, as the London and Sydney parties both “sold out” in less than a week. If you’re in Spain or nearby, come over and have some Rioja red with me.
Here’s where you should RSVP: http://4hwwmadrid.eventbrite.com/
Any suggestions for cool locations that can hold 150 people?
