Get Motivated event packs the Spokane Arena

Today's really really big Get Motivated event continues as we write.

This photo shows we were there. We heard Krish Dhanam first and then "motivational" salesman Bob Kittell came on stage to pitch his get-rich scheme using stock market analysis. That's Kitell in this photo, shot in bad light from the back of the hall looking down into the main floor. What's with the Canadian flag up in the corner?

We missed Colin Powell, who spoke very early on and probably is already out of town. A spokesman for the Get Motivated operation said all the scheduled speakers would be on hand.

The Arena was near capacity for the event. Parking around the Arena and in the overflow area of the Spokane Convention Center was hard to find. How to make money during a Get Motivated event? Run the main parking lots.
