I’m new to notes. Will it be too advanced for me?

This is not a step-by-step course on notes. It is more of a convention with lots of speakers and topics. Most presentations assume a basic knowledge of notes. If you don’t have that, we highly recommend you get Jeff Armstrong’s Notes 101 video course for $49.00: papersourceseminars.com/sop-101/

I’ve been to seminars that are little more than sales pitch fests, even when they advertise “no sales pitches.” How do I know yours is any different?

Ask anyone who’s been there! And watch the video interviews at www.PaperSourceSeminars. Almost the first thing anyone who’s been there says is how happy they are that the speakers presented useful information and never a sales pitch.

What we try to do at the Paper Source Note Symposium is to get people to teach who are actually in the note business, not the seminar business. Most have nothing to sell. Having been in the note business since the 1980’s, we know who the real players are. I talk them into coming out of their offices to teach for us, and then they go back to their note businesses. They’re not on a seminar circuit most of the time. We like to get real people there, people who DO what they rarely teach.

Will I be able to meet and talk with the speakers?

That’s a big part of the event. Our speakers are willing to meet privately with anyone who asks them at no cost. It’s up to you to make arrangements with them before or during the event.

What’s the Trade Show like?

About 40 booths with representatives from note investment companies, servicing companies, self-directed IRAs, law firms, software companies, insurance, Internet companies, publications, etc.

What’s your cancellation policy?
