Sterling and Jay in the U.K. (Photos)

Sterling, my wife and I spent the last two weeks visiting London, Paris and Scotland. While we got to see the Eiffel Tower, The Tower of London and numerous towering castles in the Scottish highlands, some of our favorite times were when we got to grab a drink and chat with Internet Business Mastery members and listeners (photos below).

It’s amazing to be able to go to another continent and immediately have friends and like-minded people to spend time with.

We’d like to thank Phil Clark and Patrick Rogan for helping us look into pubs for our IBM meetup. Thanks go also to James Noble for an excellent lunch at the National Gallery and Mark Pentleton for showing us the merits of haggis, neeps and tatties (translated: sheep guts, turnips and potatoes). And thanks to all those that came out to meet us in London. We had a fabulous time getting to know you.

Meeting people in the U.K. got us thinking about occasionally doing other regional events and meet ups. To facilitate that, we’re going to create small exclusive notification lists for specific areas. The logical places to begin with are Portland, OR (where I live) and Salt Lake City, UT (where Sterling lives).

If you are in or near either of those cities, please use the appropriate form below to be added to our notification lists for those cities if you’d like to find out when we organize special events.


Salt Lake City:

Here are a few photos from the trip that you might enjoy.

Just Before Our Meeting with the Queen ;)

Sterlind and Jay and Big Ben


  1. It was great to meet you guys and all the other IBM listeners in London, we’ve kept in touch and are sharing ideas. Glad to see you finally got to meet the queen and looks like the rest of your trip was a lot of fun! Hope the weather was as kind to you as it has been for me in Austin :o)

  2. It looks like you guys had a blast. I do hope the Queen was pleasant. I’m sad I missed the meet-up but hey at least you know that we’re with you guys even across the Atlantic.

  3. Hey guys,

    It was great to finally meet you both!


  4. Hi guys, I live 100 miles North of London and wish I could have made it, but had other commitments. You most probably passed me on the way to/from Scotland :) Hope you enjoyed the uk and hope it didn’t rain too much, as it rains most of the time here…

  5. Great to see you both (and Melanie), as well as meet everyone else at the Meetup.

    So where are the next stops on the IBMA World tour????

    Hi Guys

    It was great to actually meet all three of you. Sterling, I enjoyed the banter over the steak, it was real good to actually get together with some of the “gurus” that I spend many hours listening to.

    Meeting you guys in person made everything just a little more real! :-)

  7. Great to meet you all.

    Hope you enjoyed the big bus tour, theater, etc… there’s SO much to do in London.

    Speak soon,


    • Hey James,

      We had a fantastic time in London. The Tower of London was especially interesting. We also made it back to the National Gallery to check out the impressionist paintings.
