Why I decided to organize a big summit last year and putting so much extra work for myself?
I mean, humbly, I'm already "free". I don't need to organize a summit to make money for my company simply because our internet businesses are generating sales every day.
Frankly, I was driven to do this is because of my own ego. :)
Do allow me to explain - you see, I do get regular invitations to speak at seminars and events. However, the organizers will usually ask me this question:
"May I know what are you planning to sell after your presentation?"
So, if I'm speaking on stage, I'm FORCED to sell something and I don't like that. Don't get me wrong; there's absolutely nothing wrong in selling, I do sell as well and enjoy the process, but I don't want to "speak to sell" each time I go on stage. Soon, I realize this is how the industry works - so I have to turn down every single invitation that comes to me (this is why, you have never seen me speaking on stages for YEARS NOW, unless I get to speak without pitching).
Secondly, have you seen some of the "speakers" invited to speak?
Yes, they are very knowledgable in terms of presenting and also, pitching. But truth to be told, some of them do not have any real results AT ALL. For instance, someone who's going to teach about social media shows off his 1,000,000 fans - yet, there's less than 20 LIKES for his post.
Then I had an idea - Instead of speaking on some other event's stage, why not, I'll just do my own summit, MY OWN WAY?
So, here we are - the Real Experts Summit.
As for the speakers, they are not primarily in the "coaching" or "workshop" business, they are way too busy with their own internet businesses. They are on stage because they want to share their knowledge (and also, doing me a favor).
ANOTHER REASON WHY I WANT TO ORGANIZE - personally, this is the kind of event that I would want to attend for myself and learn.
So to continue in 2021, I'll be organizing it as a VIRTUAL SUMMIT...
