World Domination Summit 2013 Conference Review

This conference had me at hello.  I mean, who doesn’t want to become the supreme leader of the universe?  It seemed a little loose in terms of schedules and speakers, but I figured it was time to try something new.  Let me start by saying, I was lucky to score a ticket.  A friend had an extra and I bought it from them.  Tickets for the past two years have sold out in record times, so when I heard I might get in I jumped at it!  Let me also say, that while I wasn’t sure what to expect, I registered for next year’s conference at the event.  In a matter of two days I had already decided that I would be back.   This conference had nothing to do with games, but was one of the best conferences I’ve been to in a very long time.  (well, since PAX East in May).  The schedule was all best selling author’s talking primarily about entrepreneurship, and the afternoons were dominated by workshops and meetups.   I am usually that person that sits there and scoffs at the speaker, I’m a terrible attendee.  I never talk to the people next to me or participate in any of the dumb exercises.  At least I never had.  This conference was about trying new things.  And I did.  This conference was about finding the intersection between things you want to do and things people will pay you to do.  The stories were inspiring.  The following is almost cult like.  The giveaways were EPIC.  The registration cost was low.  If you can make this one, you must.  I would tell you more, but if I do, they will find me and ban me from attending again, and that risk is just not worth it.
