That's a great idea to have a workshop. The $300 range makes it reasonable. However, going to Las Vegas for 3 days would probably add $700 for me, and I can not find it reasonable for me to pay $1000 at this point when there is so much more for me to read - both your blog posts and all the books you've recommended. If I lived in Las Vegas, or you came to a city 1-2 hours from where I live, I definetely would go. If I can find a cheap way to get there and stay in an area cheaply so I wouldn't spend more then $500 total I definetely would consider it. If you came to a city within 1-2 hours of where I live, I definetely would go.
I am not exploring the physic world at this point, so I am much more interested in hearing about Personal Development topics from Steve. However, I would have a lot of interest to hear a relative brief session (1-3 hours) from Erin about what happens to us once we die.
I would NOT want the workshop to be a "Personal Development for the Smart People" for the Newbies. That is, I'd prefer to expect everyone or most people to have read most of the article and blog post you have written about. That way we can go in deeper into the stuff without having to spend too much time explaining the basic of what you've already written.
If we host a workshop or seminar in Las Vegas, under what conditions, if any, would you choose to attend?
Financial is the most important consideration for me as I am a student.
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 - Very Very Very Appealing.
What personal development topics are of greatest interest to you? What would you want to learn?
How to choose your life purpose, how to develop your career.
In what area(s) of life are you struggling the most (finances, relationships, health, career, etc)?
Life Purpose, Career, financial.
If you could make only one specific improvement in your life by attending such a workshop, what would it be?
To develop a very clear life purpose with a path to fullfilling it that is very clear and that every fiber of my being agrees with.
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 like lectures with discussion as well as mixing it up with interactive sessions.
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.)
Price is the One and Only Factor. However, Travel and Hotel cost to me would probably be around $700, so the $300workshop would only amount to a fraction of the total cost. $300 is a very reasonable price for the workshop. I'm suprised (and glad) you're not considering much higher prices.
Do you prefer big seminars with hundreds of attendees or a more intimate setting with a few dozen at most?
The less people, the better so I get more of a chance to ask my questions! But I realize the economic advantage of having more people so the price per person is cheaper. The number of people attending the seminar will not impact on my decision to attend.
