On March 3, I attended Dan Kennedy's book signing at Barnes & Noble in Westminster, Colorado. I had to drive from the south side of Denver to the north side in rush hour traffic to get there.
I shouldn't complain. My friend, Ken Calhoun, drove all the way from Colorado Springs, which is roughly 2 and a half hours to the south!
It was a great privilege to meet Dan in person in such a small setting. Not to mention, I've never in my life seen so many people come out for a book signing. There was a 30-minute line just to get your book signed.
Also in attendance was Stephen Oliver, one of Dan Kennedy's Platinum Inner Circle members and the founder of Stephen Oliver's Mile High Karate, probably the most successful chain of martial arts studios in the U.S.
I brought my digital camera to get a picture with Dan. He agreed after giving me his criteria: "You can't use this photo as an endorsement of any kind, yada-yada." Basically common sense stuff. Here's how the photo turned out.
I was surprised that, besides me, the only other person to ask for a photo with Dan was Ken Calhoun, of Day Trading University fame. Brilliant minds think alike. ;-)
By the way, I've finished reading No B.S. Wealth Attraction for Entrepreneurs, and I highly recommend it. One of the things I learned from Harlan Kilstein is that you must turn up your "financial thermostat" if you want to become wealthy. Dan's book will help you do that.
The other book, No B.S. Direct Marketing, is good, but more basic. It's really intended for business owners who are unfamiliar with direct marketing, which is alluded to in the book's subtitle. I'm thinking of giving a copy to any potential client who needs to be educated to the benefits of direct marketing. After they're done reading, they'd be practically forced to hire a copywriter!
I'll be seeing Dan Kennedy again a week from now when I head out to his Marketing Superconference March 31 - April 2. If you're going to be there, post a comment and let me know, OK? I'd love to meet you in person.
