Anybody been to a ADULTCON or a Tony Robbins seminar/event?

My work is paying for me to attend Unleash the Power Within in LA this weekend, 4-day event. Didn't really want to go because I'm missing work and a day off, but they're paying for it and it's preceding a promotion. Just wondering if anyone else here has attended one of his events before and what they thought? On my way to registration right now.

Been there, not bad and pretty motivational. Tony is only there for 2 out of the 4 days. Seminars are really long. They say from 9am-9pm or something, but it sometimes goes past midnight. The 1st days are whatever, but the last 2 days are pretty good. Just be prepared if your not a touchy guy. You literally hug everyone around you, so make sure your next to some preferably hot chicks. I went to the one in LA also and there are plenty of good looking girls.

Want free motivation? Go to the nearest Ferrari dealership and test drive a 458, if u don't want money after that something's wrong with you.

Push back. Ask to put to money toward something more geared toward your personal development.

They are sending you because they think you'll get something from it that would make you more valuable as an employee/team member. If you push back, there's going to be at least a small perception that you're not buying into the corporate culture.

Plus, they almost certainly think that they're doing you a favor by sending you (personal/professional development, greater personal success/satisfaction, etc.). So you might just want to go and suck it up if you think it's stupid.

I have not been to his seminars but I have been to others by Zig Ziglar, Tom Hopkins and a few others.

They make you feel like a million bucks while you are there and then you have to find your own opportunities to apply their concepts.

It is worth one day, but I have never been to one that lasted 4.

Be prepared to spend money on tapes and books.

I won't be buying any products there. Already on my way to registration. The 4th day is optional and I don't plan on stating for it. I'm definitely going with an open mins and will take from it what I can.

Will have to make sure I am aware of my surroundings and who I'm sitting around. Thanks for the heads up. Don't want to be hugging any sweaty, fat dudes (or dudes in general).

I went to one with the guy from zappos. Its a bit happy rainbows and unicorns, but try to take notes because you won't remember all the good ideas.

Plus you can draw dicks if you get bored.
