> Jason Will and his team have booked and launched the Momentum University Conference for April 11-12th, 2019 in the fabulous New Orleans, La.
> This conference is not your "typical" real estate conference. It's designed, planned and put on by real state agents to meet the demands, needs and value for other real estate agents.
> All of the speakers and panelists have been hand picked by Jason and his team because they will hold nothing back and share everything they know for you to get the most out of your conference experience and investment.
> Momentum University Conference is not a 1 time a year event. The vision for this conference is to become a launching pad for attendees to grow their career knowledge and skills and more importantly, meet other like-minded peers so that they can network, collaborate and encourage each other to maintain work/life momentum 365 days a year.
I want people to look forward to this event as the most impactful thing they do, not only for their careers but their lives every year." So to me, this is a different kind of conference. - Jason Will
The goal for this conference... is that we're focused on a lot of different aspects of building momentum in life. We want to talk about health and wellness, mindfulness and mindset issues as well as tactical things that are going to help us move the needle both in our personal and our professional lives. - Jason Will
Momentum University Conference is more than a conference. We're gonna have all kind of resources on our website all year long, before and after the event. You'll be able to find an intro to yoga class, things about diet, exercise, meditation, tips on how to stay organized, time management. - Jason Will
The foundational aspects of our conference is that we're gonna start transferring skills, like I mentioned, in the hearts and minds of our followers and we're gonna do it well after the conference. - Jason Will
This is a conference that's coming to people through the lens of a student. - Jason Will
If we find a speaker that shares a little bit but won't pull back the curtain completely, there's a good chance that they'll have a limited involvement in our company. - Jason Will
At ACRE, at our core, we are advancing relationships that enhance our industry. And I think that you're talking about the same kind of thing here with your conference and with your university. - Cherie Moman
I mean you're really swinging for the fence with this one. It's a huge undertaking. And I know you've also got your own real estate company. - Cherie Moman
The attendees are only going to be able to digest and internalize 5% or 10% of the knowledge that's shared. So we need to figure out a way to make sure over time, over these 365 days before and after the event, that we are continuing to regurgitate and talk about, having these discussions about what was shared, what was learned, what are some success stories and even some failures and things, some lessons that were learned the hard way from implementation. - Jason Will
You really can't create a community just sitting next to somebody in a conference all day and never speaking to them. So I think that's great that you've got opportunities for people to interact beyond just the sessions and the event. - Cherie Moman
