    Hi gang,

    There seems to be a little bit of confusion about registration, and I apologize for that! We are constrained by the site shopping cart, but are trying to make registration as clear and simple as possible.

    You need just ONE registration. You get to choose which type is best for you, but please be advised that there are only so many registrations for Hot Seats and Presentations, and once they are gone, they're gone.

    There are a limited number of HOT SEAT registrations available, and if you want a Hot Seat, that is how you should register. See the Inspiration Weekend page for details on Hot Seats if you're not familiar with them.

    There are a limited number of PRESENTATION registrations available, and if you want five minutes in front of the group, this is the registration for you. See the Inspiration Weekend page for details on Presentation Sessions (because they are new this year).

    There are unlimited GENERAL registrations, and these do not include Hot Seats or Presentations, but do include lunch, as do all registrations.

    Please note, the private 1:1 marketing sessions with me (Ronnie) are available on a first-come-first-served basis, so the earlier you register, the more likely you are to add that to your !nspiration Weekend experience.

    Questions? Please see the FAQ in the the Inspiration Weekend section in the Members-only area, or CALL us at 360-882-1298. 

    If you have questions, we want to hear them, because that means that others probably have those same questions.

    Did you attend !nspiration Weekend 2010?

    Then you'll know how valuable it was, and you'll want to get early bird admission on !nspiration Weekend 2011 plus first dibs on Hot Seats, Member Presentations, and more!

    If you were there, CONGRATS! But if you weren't,  you don't want to miss this...

    !nspiration Weekend was a life altering and business boosting event that has changed Masterminders' businesses for the better.

    If you weren't able to make it to this live event, you may have missed your opportunity to benefit in 2010, but please do yourself a favor and not let this opportunity pass you by in 2011.

    If you did join us, then you know what kind of value you experienced and here's an opportunity to reserve your place at our next meeting at the greatest discount available!

    Hear what some of you had to say about !nspiration Weekend 2010:

    The Inspiration Weekend was worth much more than I paid for it--and I am still taking it all in...I wish this group and knowledge had been available to me 30 years ago. I'd be wealthy today. ~Joy Overstreet

    I loved the Inspiration Weekend! Thanks for culling the group so we have the best people. The value of that process showed! I had a mind shift in the Hot Seat. That's what it is about for me--getting my mind around things. ~Caron MacLane

    Thank you for a terrific and of course once again true to its name Inspiration Weekend. Looking around the room, it was wonderful to see my fellow Masterminders who've become an integral part of my life there, growing and helping each other succeed. ~Dana Greyson

    Even though was so much value received by the participants of !nspiration Weekend 2010, we wanted to top what's been done. We challenged ourselves to DOUBLE the benefits for our SoHo Mastermind members, and based on member feedback and suggestions, came up with even more value for the next !nspiration Weekend! What's that look like? The number of Hot Seats has been boosted to 16, and we've added a whole new opportunity: Member Presentations! (And more good news coming, so watch this space.)

    One cool new upgrade is that you can choose the type of registration you want--whether to include a Hot Seat, or a Member Presentation--for the same low price. You will be guaranteed to receive what you register for, so no disappointments or miscommunications this year!

    Scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 11-12, 2011, this powerful event is a tremendous opportunity for your business, so make sure you plan to be there.

    18 Businesses, 20 Billboards, 12.6 Million Seeds of Holiday Joy
    And Joyous Holiday Greetings For All

    (Vancouver, WA – November 18, 2010) The Joy Team is once again partnering with Clear Channel Outdoor to bring joy to the Portland-Vancouver metro area. More than doubling the number of billboards in this second round of promoting joy, optimism and inspiration, The Joy Team has brought together 18 Oregon and Washington businesses and one husband and wife couple from New Mexico to put up 20 bright yellow billboards that will spread 12.6 million wishes of joy this holiday season.

    Twenty billboards all bearing one simple message: "Wishing you JOY" began popping up in Portland, Beaverton, Gresham, Oregon City and Vancouver, Washington, on Monday and will remain up through the end of December, wrapping the holiday season in effort to spread joy when many people need it the most.

    “Each billboard gets roughly 15,000 impressions, or pairs of eyes, each day,” stated Michele McKeag Larsen, chief joy officer of The Joy Team.  “20 billboards getting 15,000 impressions a day for 6 weeks equates to 12.6 million wishes of joy being spread throughout our communities.  The holidays can be especially difficult for some people. We'd like to try to make it a little easier,"  added Larsen.

    To make the ripple effect even bigger, The Joy Team and Vancouver photographer Kate Singh of Aevum Images will be offering a way for individuals and families to send a specially customized holiday greeting to their own friends and family. On Sunday, November 21st from noon to 3:00pm the public is invited to come out to billboard #15 in the Hula Boy parking lot at 12th and Washington in Vancouver and have their photo taken by Aevum Images, free of charge, in front of the billboard. Larsen will edit the image, creating a virtual billboard of joy from the family, and email it to them to be printed and used as a totally unique holiday greeting card.

    Holiday joy billboard sponsors include: Bright Way Massage; Clear Channel Outdoor; Coaching for Life & Spirit; Crowning Communications; Effective Web Solutions; Language Fusion; Pacific Midwifery, Menopause & Women's Health; Pat and Don Johnson; Portland Store Fixtures; Red's Electric; Rose City Mortgage; Shen Men Feng Shui; Singing Leaf; SoHo Marketing Guru; Stock Market Companion; The Joy Team; Thomas & Company CPA; Total Merchant Concepts; and Women Entrepreneurs Organization of Washington. Images of the billboard design and a location list and map can be found at  

    People can help spread joy and optimism by coming out on Sunday to create their own joyous holiday greeting and sending it far and wide; and becoming a member of The Joy Team with a donation.

    About The Joy Team
    Founded in February 2010, The Joy Team is a non-profit corporation based in Vancouver, Washington, with the mission of spreading joy, optimism and inspiration to millions. We carry out this mission by helping people shift into a positive frame of mind through the incredible power of positive words.  And advertising.  Learn more at
