Wow summer is truly upon us. Our Mid-Summer celebration was another fabulous fun, fun evening, and because it was our very last event for the summer, it was well attended. We had so many of our regular guests attend that evening including new guests and our Members of Elite Professional Networking Group (EPNG), and Friends of Black Tie International Magazine. Our guests always have such a fabulous time…this included our long-lasting friends and new friends. Consistently at these gatherings we get meet so many new faces who are invited in by our regulars and our new friends. Every month for our regular attendees it is our reunion meeting at our events.
After our last event for the summer, a group of us (Princess Swan, Susana Koehler, Joe Rojas & many more) went to Chicago to attend the Mega Wealth Party at the Mansion of Bill Walsh The Founder and CEO of Power Team International which was attended by people from all over the world. This took place in his sprawling property (encompassing about 10 acres) and we all had a good time. Bill Walsh is always a fabulous Host… every year he provides us with good food, terrific refreshments, wonderful service and such pleasant conversations with all the guests. The next day we attended the Ultimate Wealth Camp at the Renaissance Hotel which had excellent presenters. The speakers started with Bill Walsh, Austin Walsh, Mike Warren, Erik Swanson, Joe white, Roberto Candelaria, Nicol Taylor, David Chamberlain, Dave Austin, Manny Lopez, and many more. We learned so much from them that will be applied to our business and daily lives.
The seminar continued for 3 days at the McCormick Convention Center for the Sage Summit. Keynote Speakers began with Richard Branson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Herjavec, and Daymond John of the Shark Tank TV SHOW, and many other celebrities. It was a great summit. Powerteam International also had several speakers there and they all gave us such powerful and great information. Powerteam International was one of the Sponsors, and had a booth at SAGE VILLAGE where there were a good number of sponsors. Among these companies included former football player Oakland Raiders, Phil Villapiano #41 who gave us a signed football. Princess Swan and I had the opportunity to meet Robert Herjavec from the TV SHOW Shark Tank, and he is very friendly. Robert was also staying at the Fairmont Hotel, as well as Bill Walsh, and the other celebrities. The Princess and I were also staying at the Fairmont Hotel courtesy of Bill Walsh of Powerteam International. We thank him and his staff for their great hospitality they extended to us in Chicago. Powerteam International has several seminars at the Sage Summit and was moderated by Dr.Rich Schuttler.
We enjoyed hanging out with Bill Walsh, Austin Walsh and many of his friends, and also with Jen Nichols, Christine Sherbert, Cheryl Brenner, Barbara Bowman, Celia Concepcion, Anders Stubkjaes, Mark Hattas, Bally Sandhu, Flint Herold, Cami Baker, Dr. Mark Rosenbloom MD, Dr. Vera Gilford, Susana Anderson, Deborah O. Baker, John Dillman, Irvinia Moody, The 3 guys from England Joey Xoto, David Chamberlain, Jamie Garside and many more. Apologies that we cannot list all who were there...

Monthly, having our treasured friends and new guests meeting new people, and networking with our regular attendees makes for such a lovely time. The evening lasted way past midnight due to us and our guests having such fun talking and networking, so no one noticed how quickly the time flew by. Everyone had a good time including yours truly… we all hung around ‘till the wee hours of the night. No one wanted to leave because everyone knows that we are not going to be seeing each other until fall - at our next wonderful event on October 18.
