John Chow’s Last Dot Com Pho in Vancouver took place on August, 28, 2010. It was an event that was marked by high attendance and relaxed, cheerful spirit.

Michael Kwan was kind enough to take a video of John Chow and me rubbing shoulders and having a chat.

The video is a good example of how people are interacting during the lunch meetings. You’ll also learn something new about John’s iPad vest pocket and what to watch out for when you have your business cards printed by Print 24.

As is the case almost every week, I was able to meet, exchange business cards and interact with a few new people in addition to getting to know better the people that I’ve met before.

Last Saturday was a very memorable event because John Chow is moving out of Vancouver before the end of August to the Emerald city, Seattle.

John Chow is a prominent A blogger who knows how to make money online, and plenty of it too.

In my post Make Money Online by John Chow Review I have reviewed his first physical book which was published in April, 2010.

Blog Profit Camp is a course by John Chow which recently come out. Blog Profit Camp has since closed out to new students but will reopen in near future. I’m taking the course myself and so far it has been very good.

You don’t need to rush to buy it right now because you may want to read my review of it first.

I won’t be writing the review until I have gone through the whole course personally. I have done the book review the same way, only after reading it.

As pointed out in my post Succeed Online Networking At Internet Marketing Events, attending live events and networking with like minded people who are at different levels in their online business is one of the key activities that will help you succeed and make money online.

It’s been great learning from John Chow because of his experience and business acumen.

But there are also other people who bring a lot to the learning table at Dot Com Pho.

Everybody has something unique to contribute.

Take for example Ed Lau, who is not only very opinionated but has some great skills. One of them is photography. He takes great professional pictures. He can also design logos.

Another person you can learn a great deal from is Michael Kwan. He is a very high quality professional writer who does not only great reviews but can help you with any writing tasks like press releases.

There are plenty of people who go to live internet marketing events who have great skills which you can learn from them.

You can also hire them to do a particular job that you don’t have the skills for and that you don’t have the time or desire to learn.

A particularly skilled person when it comes to You Tube is Josh Rimer. He’s a comedian too and is already getting closer to his goal of being famous online.

There are other remarkable people that I’ve met at small local internet marketing events like the Dot Com Pho. I’ll be mentioning them in my future posts.

John Chow will be missed in Vancouver by all the people who have ever had the honor of meeting him.

He’ll be missed at his Dot Com Pho lunch meetings in Vancouver which will just not be the same without him.

But life will go on and John has promised to visit from time to time, maybe even once a month. We shall see.

If you want to succeed online, I urge you to not just work behind your computer.

Do get out to some live internet marketing events as often as you possibly can and do some vigorous networking.

Please do realize that I’m not just talking about the big internet marketing events and gatherings with hundreds of people in attendance.

Find out if there are any small local events like Dot Com Pho in your area. I’m sure there is something like that going on.

Even if you have to travel to the neighboring city, it will be worth doing every so often.

What to do next?
