ABOUT > ADVANCE

Short history of the Advance

The first Advance was in Memphis, TN- June 2014. About 20 guys got together just to push each other forward in life, in faith, and business. It worked. And a tiny Facebook group took a life of its own, continuing the support and growing to over 2,500 strong.

Where we've been

We've been to

  • Memphis (June 2014)
  • Birmingham (September 2014)
  • Kansas City (March 2015)
  • San Diego (September 2015)
  • Dallas (February 2016)
  • Atlanta (September 2016)
  • Seattle (February 2017)
  • Nashville (September 2017)
  • Dallas (February 2018)

And, now, we're headed to...

 

And now... Minneapolis, MN

Date / Time: September 21-23, 2018 event soon. Sessions begin at 10am Friday 21rd and end at 12noon Sunday 23rd (schedule to be posted Spring 2018)

Location: Embassy Suites by Hilton Minneapolis Downtown, 12 Sixth Street South, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 55402, 612-351-2554

NOT ATTENDING or HAVE A FRIEND / FAMILY ATTENDING and JUST WANT TO FOLLOW ALONG ONLINE?

Option 1: the "open" group.

Yes, we're notorious for having a "secret" Facebook group... 

We recently opened a public group. Anyone can join. Anyone can follow along.

The Advance group (link above) is open to anyone and becomes active 2-3 weeks BEFORE events, DURING the event, and for about one week afterwards. It's where we communicate WHILE the event is happening.

During the event, anyone can post, so that people can connect with each other while there- AND so people who aren't attending can get a glimpse into the event. After that, it goes "admin post only" until 2-3 weeks out from the next event.

Wives, partners, fiancees, girlfriends, etc. are encouraged to join THAT group ^^^

We'd love to meet you there :-)

JOIN THE ADVANCE FACEBOOK GROUP HERE

Option 2: The "closed" group. AKA = The "secret" group, for guys only >>>

 

The Essentially Equipped Group is where the bulk of the action happens between events. It's private, because it's for ongoing sharpening, accountability, questions, honesty, etc., throughout the grit of real life. Lest you think that scares people off, it's 4,000 strong AND GROWING.

Here's what's required to be in that group:

1. Men only (no women, no joint accounts, etc.).

2. Young Living members only.

3. Request to join and an admin will approve if you meet the above criteria.
