Did you hear? Apple is releasing the new iPhone 6S soon.
Hey. Did you read about Kim Jong Un’s latest rant against America?
Wow. They’re saying LTB 2015 is happening on July 8th.
Okay, you’ve got my attention.
Predictable headlines and banal captions are ideal for topics involving technology geeks camping outside Apple stores in flimsy tents and despotic dictators bent on fashioning nuclear bombs out of paper clips. But when it comes to describing a game-changing movement that has impacted so many lives and helped countless entrepreneurs from our community flourish? Now that’s worth an exclamation point or two.
Amidst frenzied emails, rapid WhatsApp posts and lively text messages, the news has been spreading throughout the Jewish business community: “Did you hear? LTB is happening again!”
Hailed as North America’s very first Jewish business summit, the LTB platform made waves across the Jewish world and beyond, starting with its very first event back in 2013; the impact is still reverberating.
This game-changing movement has positively impacted so many lives and helped countless entrepreneurs from our community flourish – by creating an unrivaled platform which fuses knowledge, tools and resources into a singularly vibrant experience.
I spent this past week in Arizona – and it wasn’t for vacation or relaxation purposes. Rather, it was to take part in a special mastermind group.
People flew in from across the USA to attend. The group seemed to be made of entrepreneurs of all ages… and in similar growth stages of business. We sat together in a big room and got right to work. Everybody spent hours learning, analyzing, discussing and strategizing how to go about advancing their business goals and career objectives.
Perhaps you think that leaving the office for nearly an entire week might be a little bit too intense. “Was the whole trip really necessary?” you may be asking yourself. To say it was productive would be an understatement. Truthfully, it baffles me as to why every single businessperson in today’s marketplace doesn’t spend just one week out of a whole a year attending a mastermind group to focus on planning ahead.
Of course, when I talk about planning ahead, I don’t only mean technical things like crunching numbers or crafting contingency plans.
I’m talking about thinking big.
There’s a bewildering question that is often asked by business owners, employees, entrepreneurs – people of all backgrounds and industries. The inquiry is:
“What’s the one thing I can do to see a positive change my career?”
I know that’s a loaded question. But it’s one that our good friend, Charlie Harary, answered beautifully at LTB 2014.
After viewing the above video of Charlie, be sure to check out the entire LTB Video Library.
You’ll get access to powerful, content-driven, ready-to-use topics from North America’s top corporate experts. So many businesspeople have already benefited from the LTB Video Library. Will you be counting yourself among them?
Today the Ptex Group can finally exhale.
After months of planning, pushing and perfecting, #LTB2014 materialized from vision to reality, goal to “mission accomplished.”
Some of you drove from nearby to the picturesque Rockleigh in New Jersey…other’s flew in from afar.
But the important thing is that you showed up. You put business as usual on hold for the day because you’re driven to succeed. To push. To grow. To expand your network. And to make 2014 a bigger, better and bolder business year.
****Welcome to the #LTB2014 live blog! I’ll be blogging live all day — posting pictures & sharing all the insider scoop — so tune in regularly! If you’re at the event, I’ll be your eyes and ears, just in case you miss something memorable while you’re grabbing a delicious snack from the all-day buffet or attending a brilliant breakaway session. And if you couldn’t make it out this year, I’m sure my live reports will keep you entertained … albeit wishing you were here too.

Ready? Set? Let’s talk business.
You’ve been toying with the idea of registering for #LTB2014, but you’ve found one reason or another to put it off.
Well, it’s game time! Tomorrow is the big day. Our office is abuzz with excitement as we put the finishing touches on a business summit designed to impress in every way, from the luxurious venue (The Rockleigh in NJ) to the gourmet buffet open all day (business-people are nearly always hungry people).
One of the biggest draws, of course, is the “talent.”
We’ve talked about our inspirational, innovative speakers like Rob “Waldo” Waldman, Dave Crenshaw, Gerry O’Brien, Hal Becker and more who will be joining us LIVE tomorrow. We don’t fly in just anyone — only the best of the best will be at #LTB2014.
But we haven’t mentioned a few speakers, and trust me, you don’t want to miss out on what they have to say..
I pity Dave Crenshaw.
He’s going to be a featured speaker at LTB 2014 and will be flying into JFK from far-flung Utah.
The man will spend five hours sitting in a narrow economy-class seat surrounded by violent turbulence, screaming babies and frazzled parents. He’ll then be forced to take off his shoes and socks while passing through TSA security as a group of giggling Japanese tourists look on gleefully. He will cap off his ordeal by dragging a bulky American Tourister suitcase through a maze of endless terminals and hallways in search of the elusive Budget Rent-A-Car desk.
But that’s not why he’s earned my sympathy.
