| | Sounds like a good idea
Here is my feedback to your questions:
1. If we host a workshop or seminar in Las Vegas, under what conditions, if any, would you choose to attend?
As long as I can afford it and have the time off from work I would go, especially if it was the weekend. I have family I can stay with in Las Vegas so it would not cost me as much to stay as some people, though I would still have to get there from Virginia.
2. On a scale of 1-5, how appealing is this idea to you (1 = I’d never go, 5 = I wouldn’t miss it for the world)?
4 – I like this idea very much, and getting the time from work is not a big deal if I know far enough in advance. The only thing holding me back is finances. If you ever came somewhere on the East Coast though it would considerable cut my costs and I would elevate my 4 to a 5.
3. What personal development topics are of greatest interest to you? What would you want to learn?
Topics concerning better understanding who I am and what my purpose is and then converting my thoughts and beliefs into actions to get things done.
4. In what area(s) of life are you struggling the most (finances, relationships, health, career, etc)?
As I look at my answers so far finances seems to be the one jumping out at me. I am also having some struggle with myself (personal development I suppose, though I am not sure if it is exactly that area).
5. If you could make only one specific improvement in your life by attending such a workshop, what would it be?
To be able to completely understand myself (thus, allowing me to manifest my intentions more clearly and efficiently).
6. What is your preferred learning style? Do you prefer highly interactive, experiential workshops with lots of activities? Or do you prefer more lecture and/or PowerPoint presentation, packing in as much raw content as possible? Or do you enjoying mixing it up?
I prefer more interactive workshops, depending on what the activities are. A mix of both is also very doable. I think a purely lecture seminar would lose interest over time though.
7. How significant a role does pricing play in your decision? Does $300 for a 3-day workshop seem reasonable to you? (That price is near the low-end of typical pricing for a 3-day personal development workshop.)
$300 seems very reasonable. I was thinking of visiting Erin while I was visiting relatives anyway, and an in person meeting is about that much for just an hour. A 3 day seminar for the same price would be a great deal.
As far as which of you will be hosting the seminar, perhaps you can divide it up? Maybe have one person hold seminars over the weekend more in the morning, and the other more in the evening or night. Then someone can attend either Steve’s or Erin’s for $300, or both for $500, or something like that.
I am not sure if that would work, since I have only been to day seminars, not whole weekend seminars. How much time is spent each day at the seminar?
8. Do you prefer big seminars with hundreds of attendees or a more intimate setting with a few dozen at most?
I prefer a more intimate setting, but realistically the more people that come the less costly it is per person, so whichever works best for you.
