    Hey guys. A couple of the Bay Area BHers are going to hit up the SMX. It would be cool to get a bunch of us to go there to network and meet new people. So if anyone is from the Bay Area and is planning to go, let us know!

    If I don't have any exams or anything, I'll be there. I assume people usually just go for one day, right?

    Would go, but "SMX is open to business professionals 18 years and over only. "
    No respect for young entrepreneurs :(

    you guys should collect leads from those "workshop" goers. Pitch them "Insiders Blackhater Reveal Secret Tactics" or some BS like that. ( no real info, just general)
    Even those "real" workshops teach little real world / hands on insider tactics.
    Rent a hall in fancy hotel from the money you collect upfront. $4500/seat.

    For those of you in the Facebook group, PM me your Skype. I deactivated my Facebook (too much of a distraction haha). So we can keep in touch through Skype.

    I'm down to meet up outside of the actual conference. Not really interested in paying 1-3k for stuff I doubt will be that helpful to me.
