Who’s had any success from the Get Motivated event?

We’ve gotten a few calls from folks who attended the recent Get Motivated event, held on Aug. 17 at the Spokane Arena. The event featured some heavy hitters, like Colin Powell, talking about what helps define success, and how to gain success.

The event also included several pitch men who sell a variety of get-rich schemes and plans. All the calls or messages received by Office Hours, so far, have said the Get Motivated event is a long informercial, all designed to upsell products developed by the pitch sales people.

In a desire to be fair, we’d like to hear from people who bought some or any of the products or services available via the event. Tell us what you got and how it’s working out. Send comments to and for the subject, write “Motivated.”
