007 SessionsI‘m always pleasantly surprised when walking around, talking to attendees and they spring some incredible stats on me about the success of their business.
This is why we’ve decided to pull some of the audience members up on stage to share their biggest successes and ideas to compete for fun prizes and, of course, bragging rights.
This will be a quick-hit session with each attendee getting exactly 007 minutes to present what they know.
This is Positively NOT For Everybody
I’m going to be honest here and let you know there’s a good chance that the Underground® Online Seminar isn’t for you.
Here’s the honest truth…
This seminar is NOT cheap. Yes, this actually helps consistently draw an extremely high caliber of entrepreneurs, which has led this seminar to become known as one of the best networking events for entrepreneurs in the world! (Actually we use the revenue to put on a totally unique experience and not spare expenses from stage design to unique VIP events.)
In fact every year, I am surprised by how many successful business owners and previous speakers are sitting in the audience, taking notes along with everyone else. And because we work so hard to make this a fun and open environment, I receive feedback every year from attendees who are shocked at how open everyone they meet is to sharing ideas and their growth strategies.
This truly makes Underground® one of THE most exciting & exclusive learning, networking and ‘deal making’ events of the year.
Listen, as I mentioned earlier, the speakers at the Underground® are not professionals. Their speeches are not carefully scripted or polished so if you’re looking for a fancy PowerPoint and a flawless presentation then you’ll want to steer clear.
The presenters are simply going to give it to you straight without a dog and pony show at the end like you’d typically see at other events.
That also means there’s usually no ego. You’ll have pretty much complete access to most speakers before and after presentations to ask questions, get clarification and enjoy further instruction.
This is not one of those seminars where speakers vanish into the night when they’re done; most of these guys have agreed to stick around because they truly want to be here.
Plus, each year I go the extra mile to make sure our speakers really lay all their cards on the table with the…
Just to provide some of the speakers a little more incentive to give you their absolute best and most use-able information – I’ve decided to really go out on a limb!
You’re going to vote for the speaker that gave you the most directly impactful information that you can take straight to the bank.
The winner is going to be named the Top Underground® Marketer of the Year and get a nice trophy. Plus I’m going to put up a $10,000.00 check that goes to their favorite charity.
Now, I can tell you one thing for sure – these guys and gals are super competitive. That means, they are going to go all out trying to outdo one another vying for “the crown” while you sit back and soak it all in.
Each year, several of the speakers ask us to turn off the cameras and the microphones so they can reveal off-the-record information that they don’t want recorded. So although we will be recording the seminar, it will definitely NOT be released to the general public in its entirety.
So, if you plan on waiting for the tapes, please realize they will be heavily edited and censored. That means the only way to get full disclosure is to get here in person!
Is It Right For You?
Let’s cut to the chase. By now you’re probably curious as to how much you’re going to invest to attend this event. Each and every year, for the last 9 years – the Underground has been sold-out. Even though we have added MORE content and MORE unique surprises for the celebration of our 10th year anniversary – your cost will NOT go up.
Collectively and conservatively the group we’re assembling brings in a 100+ million in revenue online. (A multiple of that if you consider the keynote speakers.)
If you could pick up just a fraction of a fraction of this knowledge what would that be worth to you? I promise it’s going to be worth 10x – 100x the cost of admission.
What Kind Of Hefty Price Tag
Should This Go For?
We thought about this for a long time. We asked what would be a fair price be for 3-days with the, digital trendsetters, and out-of-the-box Internet innovators and the biggest players in the online space?
Collectively and conservatively the group we’ve assembled brings in over $250,000,000 (yes, $250 Million) in revenue online.
If you could pick up just a fraction of a fraction of this knowledge what would that be worth to you?
Actually the lowest number our colleagues suggested was $10,000. And yes, we could charge and get this amount but then it would limit this information to only people who are already doing well seven-figures online.
But we’ve decided to put this at a more reasonable level of $2,995 (with a very generous payment plan).
At this price it separates those who are serious entrepreneurs from “wantrepreneur”.
Still, we understand it might be a stretch for some of you and as I have always been a big believer in rewarding decisive action and as an added incentive to register early we are willing to give you an additional $500 discount today…
Regular Price $2995 Today $2495
*Payment plan available at checkout
If after the first day, you don’t believe what you’ve discovered is worth your investment or you do not want to stay for the whole event or you are disappointed in any way, for whatever reason, just discreetly turn in your materials to one of our staff members. Say the code word “The Eagle Has Landed” and you can leave with a full refund of your tuition.
Even though this puts me on the hook for a big chunk of change, to tell you the truth I’m not worried because I know the tremendous value of the exclusive information, trade secrets and contacts being shared over these 3 days aren’t available to anyone else, anywhere!
What People Think of Underground®
“It was at this very event a few years ago, when I spoke, that the idea for Awesomeness Fest was born. And that sparked the idea for Mindvalley Insights, which later would lead to Zentrepreneur.”
“It’s one of two things I never ever ever, short of famine, fire or plague ever miss. It is so valuable to my business. The Speakers and presenters are phenomenal.”
“Really a lot of what you learn from the Underground is what’s going on in the future. The ah-ha moment is just learning from these guys what’s going to happen next and now you can use that knowledge in your business to be ahead of the curve.”
“You get people who are doing very different things and have very different skill sets than the normal Internet experts that you know of or see at the other seminars.”
