I’ve had my head buried in work w/ Social Agent locked up here in China for months – its about time I go out and network! I have always loved what Dan Andrews and the guys at TropicalMBA.com have been doing – having attended their first Tropical MBA meetup back in June 2011 (wow how time flies!), and I missed last year’s annual conference. But this year I am gonna catch it! Got a last minute open slot to this year’s sold out event and am gonna take the chance to network with other global internet entrepreneurs!
The event is officially Friday Oct 18 til Sunday Oct 20, but I will get there a day earlier and stay a couple extra days to take part in other meetings and catch up with my good friend Dustin Ellard!
Below are my flight details:

Its a private event so I’ll respect their privacy and not post too much up here. Totally pumped to meet some old friends, learn some new internet marketing tricks (I try to keep up, but want to learn from the masters).
Another thing – I haven’t fully announced yet, but for Social Agent, we’re working on an “International” version that is going “outside of China” in response to a lot of feedback from clients both in and out of China. We still need to pick a launch date, but should be in the end of October.
