Default OK thanks Rick, I avoid summits.

The live sessions are most often free. The summit will last seven to ten days. Once it's over, if a person wants to view the recordings they pay $Y price. This is the most typical format. To gain access the participant has to opt-in.

With a giveaway, the organizer assembles X number of contributors. Each of them provide their giveaway item. Again, to participate, people have to opt-in. The organizer gets the email addresses of all subscribers. The contributors get the email addresses of only those people who opt-in for their item.

In both cases, there would be a theme such as a weight loss summit (yes - it's a thing - I checked) or a health giveaway. I'm not thinking of joining any giveaways or summits right now. Just exploring options for now.


I think over a decade since I've attended an event, maybe longer. And I don't see myself going to one any time soon. Many years ago, I did an informal, unscientific study into people who went to Tony Robbins events. Some spending several thousand to walk on coals and jump off poles. Again, very UNscientific but anecdotally, none had made an income improvement, and few said they were better off overall, but ALL said they benefited from it.

I think people have a great power, to fool themselves into thinking that going to events, paying money for courses, joining groups, and networking is in some way beneficial to their bottom line. I've found over the years, dang few of event attendees ever get around to applying what they learned, or bought at these things.

Actually, fooling ourselves into believing what we bought, and never using it was enough. I think this to be a universal deception we do to ourselves.

The knowing is as far from the doing as one can get, albeit, it somehow convinces us we are (like objects in the rear view mirror) closer than they are.
