A4d Meetup 2011- Jason really knows how to throw down….

Mar 23, 2011

I ended up getting into San Diego around 12:30pm and headed straight to the hotel. I really didn’t expect the weather to be so nice in SD but I decided to make the best of it and head to the quicksilver store a block away and grab from trunks and flip flops. I headed down to the pool at the hard rock hotel and chilled there for about 3 hours as other affs came in and I met other affs there at the pool. Come 7pm a lot of us headed over to bar basic and smax not to disappoint ordered about 8 different pizza pies and also bottle service to warm the crowd up for the night. After about 3 hours of mingling in a very low key gathering we headed over to flux night club. I must say that when Jason and the boys go all out they never ever ever disappoints. Throughout the night bottles upon bottles of goose and dom p showed up and even at one point with a robot. The music was spun all night non stop to which everyone swayed and danced to into the night. I decided to call it an early night as I wanted to get some rest because of the night before leaving salt lake city at 7am and heading to San Diego. Unfortunately that night I didn’t get much rest and only ended up with 2 hours of sleep. Come 10am I made it down to the room and got setup in the front row with some fellow affs getting all situated with coffee, thanks Phoenix for getting me that but sorry I stole all your sugars, and the presentations began. I have to say the presentations were on spot and every speaker did not disappoint in any way. Everyone had their view on how they handled what they presented and how they did it. Someone also used a picture of my home office in one of their presentations which was rockin. After the presentations and things settled down I met up with shoemoney for a quick bite to eat for food at mary janes. Despite what anyone says Jeremy is really...

Salt Lake City Utah, one stop shop for everything from call centers to fullfillment centers.

So a week ago I stopped in Denver Colorado for a bit to take care of some things and then headed over to Salt Lake City Utah. My original plans were to stay for the weekend and then head out a week later for the A4D meetup. Immediately upon arriving in SLC was picked up at the airport in CLS and headed out for lunch at this awesome seafood place. The views of the mountains in SLC were just majesic, I couldn’t believe how beautiful everything was out there. After lunch I had some meetings with some people that I took care of and proceeded to go shopping for some new dress shoes since I forgot mine and we were going out partying that night. Let me tell you that party that night we went to The Hotel Elevate in SLC and rocked it till we shut it down. We got picked up in a stretch limo and rolled 20 people deep into that club. The night started slow but as the crowd poured into the place and with 5 places that were spinning music with people dancing this place was on point. With multiple bottles across 4 tables int eh vip and smoking hookah all night I had the most fun time I had in a while. At the party and over the weekend I met some awesome people and got contact for some things I have in the works here soon. being able to see where SLC can be a one stop shop from fulfillment to call centers to people doing up sells and coaching packages there is no stone left unturned when you have a product as an advertiser. As Monday came I decided I needed to stay longer and changed my flight plans till the end of the week. The meetings i had during the week went well and it all came to a head on thursday night when we hit up the circle lounge. The tables at circle are huge and we had two of the largest. I’ve noticed that smoking hookah at clubs is a big thing in slc, some of the best clubs there have it and...

Day 1 of trip to ADTech San Fran

Day 1 of trip to ADTech San Fran

Apr 17, 2010

I had to get up early in the morning to fly from IPT to SFO. Considering I fly from my small airport in my town I have to fly in to the nearest lager airport which is PHL. So I had to get up at 7 am to make sure I got to the airport on time. I don’t usually get up that early. So I get to the airport and fly to Philly and when I get here I have a 4 hour layover, yes my plane got in at 10am and I don’t leave Philly until 2pm great. So I decide to head up to the club lounge for us airways and chill there for the next 4 hours waiting for my next flight. I grabbed a beer and a smoked turkey sandwich.  The prices in thr club lounge are outragous but what can you do I’m not sitting down at the gat looking for an outlet for 4 hours. Just to give you an example of prices in the club lounge of us airways a corona is 5 bucks but the house beer, bud or bud lite, is only a dollar meh oh well bud lite it is. I hop on skype an talk to my man sohan since his flight got canceled to the us due to the big ash cloud covering most of Europe at this point.  It comes time to leave and I went take a piss before I head down to my gate so I head to the bathrooms in the club lounge and low and behold there are no urinals just fucking stalls. Ok whatever just whip it out and take a piss which I do. I go back outside after taking a piss and notice its the women’s bathroom FML. Time to get on my plane, first class thank god, fat man needs room on the plane. I mean seriously I’m not one of hose guys that need another seat or my left ass cheek but first class on us airways is by no means first like on virgin or other airlines but its better then coach. So her I*m chilling and I get my vodka...

Well This one was weird. For some reason my best friend jordie and I were at some affiliate conference and flew down to Georgia in a private jet. After we arrived at the airport we got picked up in a maybach but the inside was huge like a party bus. I asked people who were already inside what they did and they said they were here for the conference which was weird cause I just came from one. We then arrived at this 5 star hotel and I got out and picked up my luggage which was a Louis Vuttion duffel bag which I threw on like a backpack. We went inside the hotel and it ended up being a river boat filled with offices. I was looking for elite clicks media and Ryan Machara. So the boat had a video system and they put me on all the monitors saying I was looking for ryan and for him to please come down to the lobby to which he did. He then walked me to their offices and told me they were going to hire me as intern and that we were goign to have a meeting with some other am’s and some other potential interns. He told me when they ask me what a virus was in one of the questions choose “taking a mouse apart” as the answer. I was like wtf ok. So there were a bunch of tests and eventually the meeting was over and we go to leave and my buddy jordie is in full motorcycle gear and said ok I’ll see you when you get home and I’m like dude we flew here you don’t have your bike how are you going to ride your bike back to pa from ga. At this point I woke up. Weird fucking dream I know, welcome to my...

Day 3 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Day 3 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Jan 18, 2010

Woke up on sunday around 9:30 took a shower and got ready for the day.  Let me tell you I love soaking tubs. the tub in our room was huge. I grabbed the ipod clock radio from beside the bed, plugged it in the bathroom and threw a playlist on and got ready for the day. After I found this combination of how to wake up and get ready for the day I think i did this every day I was in vegas. If you can afford to get your pass early the day before go and do it, it beats the long lines and you don’t have to wait with every other person who flew in sunday and rushed to get their passes. Started off the day by going over to the Wynn and saw George and Laura of Get Ads and talked with them a bit about possibly doing some business together. I went to leave the Wynn and went to valet to hop into the car and no sooner that I did that I got a phone call from Nick Mattern that he just arrived at the airport. I told him I was out in the car and I’d swing buy and pick him up so I drove to the airport. Now Nick,aka BBWOLF the former owner of WFReview, was staying with us as well in the suite at Palms Place. We headed back to the Palms place so he could settle into the suite as well. We all then headed over to the conference to walk around the meet market and see who was there etc. The first room was fucking packed. I mean it was like elbow to elbow. I saw a couple companies I knew and some I didn’t. I did see a new company that is trying to take over tracking202’s space and be the next prosper. I wasn’t having it so I won’t mention their names but my man Wes Mahler has developed a good product over the years and I seen good things come from him and his team. I can’t wait to see what develops with them and Bloosky now. Since this room was...
