I’m Back

Sort of.

Ann Sieg and Eric Walker at Minnesota Live EventLet me explain with two quick items…

#1. I’ve been getting requests to do in-person workshops more and more these days. A lot of requests.

Not many people know that I held a very small private workshop in Minnesota back in January.

In fact, there were only about 300 people who even knew about the event.

26 individuals braved the elements to come join our team for a good ol’ Minnesota winter, with most paying a minimum of $3,000 to be in attendance (not including travel expenses).

Many said it was the most valuable event they’ve ever attended and it went so well we decided to do another one.

So I’m going to be back in my home state of Minnesota again for another workshop, except this time we’re doing it in August.

Why Minnesota?

Well, my webmaster lives there, my business partner lives there, and my head coach Curt Johnson lives in Northern Illinois which is much closer to Minnesota than Hot Springs, Arkansas.

And while Minnesota in January may not be the Bahamas, the Mississippi river valley is absolutely beautiful in the summer.

This workshop will be slightly bigger than the last one, but not much.

We’re going for quality over quantity and are keeping these small on purpose, so we’re only sending these emails to a small segment of our list.

I’m not going to say much more about it for now, other than: if you’d like some serious hands-on internet marketing help and you think you might be interested, keep August 4-6th open on your calendar.

Will send you more details soon.

#2. If you’d like to get a little sample of some of the training from our last workshop in January, check out this great clip below from one of Eric Walker’s sessions where he teaches the 3x3x1 strategy.

This is an awesome training segment if you feel like you don’t know what to talk about on Facebook to market your products/opportunity.

You’ll also see some of the hands on work we did at this workshop.

As Eric is teaching the strategy, one of our Renegade Team members and trainers, Marsha Godwin actually films a video in front of the class using the technique that Eric is talking about.

Also, note the hoodie underneath the suit coat that Eric has on. Kind of like a slightly more serious version of Mark Zuckerberg. Very trendy. (I’m just messing with him because his plane got in late and he walked in the door literally right before he was scheduled to train 😉

Anyway, check it out and leave a comment if you enjoyed it:


Talk Soon,
Ann Sieg

    • Hi Sue,

      Great connecting with you on the phone the other day. We need to connect up face-to-face again real soon. As always I’ve got other stuff up my sleeve. How can I resist? I’m a marketer. :)

      I really hope you can make our live event, Sue. It would be great to have a super techie in the crowd.


  3. Hello Ann!

    This was a fantastic video and even though I have built a residual income with ViSalus I can always improve. You have been such a huge presence in my learning and it looks like you will continue to be…:)

    I have always loved being a Renegade in training so I will try my best to get to Minnesota.

    As for the video…Eric was awesome! Wow…3x3x1 is something that I can see tons of potential with so keep an eye out, as I get my 7 videos create in a few weeks. I would love ome feedback when I do!

    See you soon,

    • Hi Sherry,

      I was so sad when you weren’t able to make the Great Wealth Transfer Conference that we hosted last year but totally understand why you couldn’t make it.

      The 80/20 Marketing team and myself would LOVE to meet you for the first time. You were a great participant in our Renegade System Coaching.

      Come on up to beautiful sunny Minnesota, Sherry. We’ll give you a big warm greeting PLUS all the great training you’ll be receiving.

      Hugs to you,


  4. Carol Lamoreaux says:

    OK – somehow I missed what to do for day 7. Where is it in the video (timestamp)? Or can you tell me what it should be? This is a great idea!!

    • Hi Carol,

      You must be referring to joining my Inner Circle. Send in an email to Coach Curt (curt@8020marketinginc.com) and he’ll be able to help you.

      Faster yet is to log into your back office. You’ll see the Ann Sieg’s Inner Circle icon in the top left. Click that. Then input your 7 Day promo code. If you don’t have it Curt will be able to help you.

      And I hope to see you at our Renegade Team live event August 4, 5 & 6!

      • Carol Lamoreaux says:

        Sorry, I was a bit unclear in my question — in the 3x3x1, I heard what to do for the 3×3 but missed what to do for the x1 (day 7). BTW, I joined the IC yesterday! :) I am hoping to come to the event — waiting for the registration/tickets to be available.

        • Got it. Thanks for clarifying.

          Yes, you can find the rest of the 3by3by1 training in the Renegade Team back office. Look for Team
          Challenges in the left tool bar. Click that. Then look for the 3X3X1 Video Challenge.

          There you will see the full recording of Eric’s training that was live streamed to our team.

          And Congratulations on joining my Inner Circle! You’ve made a smart investment into your business. I know you’re going to love it!

  5. Hello Ann Seig,
    I really admire your perserverence, your enthusiasim and energy level. I am 70 and a half years old and I used to be a little like you, I sold Real Estate for many years in a small town but it worked for me. It was the job that I loved the most in my entire life. After my children were married, I didn’t feel needed that much and I met a wonderful man that became my best friend. After seven years, we decided to marry but unfortunately for me, he had to transfer with his job due to a plant shutdown. I was always a homebody,never liked moving away from family but it was a time in my life that I sure had to follow a good man. It was supposed to be for one year, turned into seven before we transferred back to East Coast and my family. Due to many reasons, I gave up my Real Estate Career and started a small retail business. We have both retired but need to continue the business to earn needed extra money.It is a little harder now at our age and I would like to sell my present inventory and find smaller items to sell. However, my real desire at this time in my life before I forget all my experiences, is to write a book, For both the little business and writing a couple of books,time and money is needed. You, Anne suggested Facebook. I do love Facebook and making friends but I am having so many problems with Facebook. I ended up with three accounts, would rather have one and I have had to reset my password a few times and now they will not let me use my original password or any ones I choose. I was just so fortunate to receive a new computer recently from my Internet Servicer for me being a long time valued customer, I am now in the process of deleting all the 3400 emails that had built up. My next project is to try to reach someone at Facebook that will help me make facebook work for me, by getting back to my friends and yes even doing some advertising. So glad I saw your letter, it helped me to keep trying to to reach my goals. My goals are not just personal goals, I also need to make money for several different reasons. My husband and I need to be in a better financial position and we would like to help other people who need help, as we have done in the past. Thank you Ann for your encourageing email letter and for allowing me to tell you my story,
    Sincerely, Carol Lee

    • Thanks for sharing, Carol.

      It sounds like Facebook has been quite the humdinger for you. I’m glad to hear of your perseverance to push through and give it another try.

      I’m sure you know all too well that’s the nature of business. You just have to keep leaning into the wind until you get a breakthrough.

      Keep me posted on your progress and by all means reach out for help. My team and I are here. We have a fantastic team membership that would not only provide you the needed training (especially Facebook!) but also a wonderful supportive community.

      This helps the learning curve enormously. People ask their technical questions (like Facebook) and an answer comes back in just a few short minutes. It’s pretty amazing.

      All the best to you and your husband.

      We’re here for you!


  6. Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices
    out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any recommendations? Many thanks!
