Meeting Arnold Schwarzenegger and Donna Karan at Mega Partnering VII in Los Angeles, California

I attended the seventh edition of the world famous Mega Partnering wealth networking summit took place in Los Angeles, California 7-10 June 2013 at the Westin LAX hotel. 800 business people from 27 countries around the world attended the event to network and create new partnerships.

A number of high net worth speakers shared their experiences and tips. The event primarily serves as a networking event for business people and has been tagged as the World Economic Forum of the business world.

The speakers included JT FOXX, a top business coach, serial entrepreneur, real estate investor and top marketing authority, and founder of Mega Partnering. He spoke on the different business models he has successfully applied to his own empire.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, California’s 38th governor, Hollywood action hero, environmentalist and successful businessman. Schwarzenegger took time off the shooting of the film to share his key steps to success:

  • Have a vision
  • Never thinking small
  • Ignoring the naysayers
  • Working hard
  • Ultimately giving back to society.

Donna Karan, one of the most legendary female entrepreneurs and fashion icons and founder of Urban Zen Foundation, shared her beginnings working under Anne Klein to the building of her empire, which started out as a desire to create fashionable clothes for herself and her friends, and later developed into two world renowned brands- Donna Karan and DKNY. Her Urban Zen Foundation, started after her husband’s death provides palliative support to terminally ill patients and the program is being replicated by different university hospitals. The foundation focuses on changing, “current healthcare paradigm to include integrative medicine and promote patient advocacy.”

The summit was packed with lots of doses of inspiration and positive energy. Never experienced so much ‘I can do’ in one place like I did at Mega VII last week.

The networking and partnerships I built over the four days were awesome.

Mega Partnering comes to South Africa for the first next month 5-7 July 2013 at the Sandton Convention Center. See you all there!
