10 Reasons Why You Should Host Your Own Live Events


Monday, December 12, 2022


Ray Edwards

Hosting a live event is complex, expensive, risky, and stressful. Yet for some of us, live events seem like a necessity due to our business model.

Even if you have decided that hosting a live event, seminar, or workshop is just too big a pain…Even if you have decided you have no interest in pursuing live events as part of your business model… I urge you to reconsider. Why? Because if you pass this up, you could be passing one of the most rewarding, enjoyable, life changing, and profitable business activities available to you.



We in the entrepreneurial and human potential field are fond of quoting Napoleon Hill and his mastermind alliance principle which states…

“The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony…no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.”

Sounds kinda spooky, right?

There is another book which states something similar, “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” – Matthew [18:20] (NKJV)

But wait, there’s more.

“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” – Hebrews [10:24]-25 (NKJV)

In this episode I’ll weave these concepts together and prove to you that there is power in the proximity created by people gathered in agreement.


Imagine me mentoring you each and every month. What would that make possible for you?

We would start with an intensive training about how to get your online marketing system set up and running, no matter what type of business you own. Then, each month, we would do a live video training session where you could ask me any question you like.

Each month I would sit down and write you a 12-page memo about what to do, and then I would deliver a proven marketing campaign you could copy and use in your business.

We’ll be opening the doors to this new, affordable group coaching/mentoring/training program in the near future. If you would like more information go immediately to to get on the VIP notification list.
