We already have a discount link to our hotel, DoubleTree in Niagara Falls, New York, and it will be made available to those who sign up. A special rate of $159/night has been gifted by our friends at the DoubleTree just for us, with a special link for reservations here.

(Disclosure from DoubleTree: “Notice the rate is $170.00 and not $159.00 on that site. Hilton mandates us to disclose our 7% destination fee upfront online. Everyone pays it in the end. It's part of the 21% tax rate.)


All meals for the two days of the summit will be included. The cost per store will be just $4,995.00, which includes up to two attendees from each store; if additional attendees from a store are desired, we can add them on for just $1,000.00 each. Fahim is personally guaranteeing business growth strategies that will more than double your spending on your first day.

 

We hope to see you on Labor Day weekend in Grand Island, New York! Let’s soar!

With excitement, enthusiasm, effervescence, and elation,

 

Fahim, Yusuf, Seema, Steve, and Marty

Our agenda is in the works, but all five (Fahim, Yusuf, Seema, Steve, and Marty) AYM High coaches will be on hand for the event to teach and guide, with special guests lined up for extra content and inspiration.
