They've arrested two hundred eighty people for quote anti-state activities up from sixty eight in the previous five year period instructed the serum press to scrub phrases like civil society and human rights from their pages and in the months leading up to the national congress. This crackdown has intensified earlier. This month day sentenced three freelance journalists famous for criticizing the government to between eleven and fifteen years in prison. It's a lot easier to shoot off an angry tweet or facebook post than it is to organize in vietnam where protest is technically illegal but actually there have been a lot of protests in real life over the last several years so in two thousand eighteen for instance tens of thousands of vietnamese took to the streets. Because they're angry about a proposed law that they were worried would allow chinese companies to lease special economic zones for a ninety nine years as a lot of anti chinese sentiment in vietnam. Because there's a lot of concern that chinese infringing on their offering sovereignty and the protests so violent angry there were clashes between the police and protesters. The government eventually abandoned this law so a good pandemic response and the economic growth. That comes with that somewhat offset by this discontent. What else is on party leaders minds. Ironically trade is going to be a worry as well and i say -ironically because trade is a is a massive driver of economic growth. It is through trade. That vietnam has been able to transform itself into manufacturing powerhouse and yet at the same time it gives its export markets leverage over the government. So for instance in order to get the eu to agree to free trade deal last year. Vietnam had to agree to abolish forced labor and allow the creation of independent labor unions which was a massive concession but surely concerns such as that aren't limited to the you know means the party officials have to think very carefully about their relations with both china its biggest trade partner and the us biggest export market. The trump administration came down really hard on vietnam labeled it. A currency manipulator late last year and trump has described vietnam quote. Almost a single worst abuser of everybody for that reason. So the party will be very keen to rebuild the relationship with the biden administration.

"Let's just get a bunch of people in a room and for. Three days. Let's just share what we know. And so it was just us talking. I think we had like, maybe one or two other outside. Speakers come in, and it was just as talking and sharing. And our goal that for sheer is to have everybody leave and say, wow, that was the best I've ever been to. It wasn't to make money. And we didn't make any money we lost lots of money. So we sold hit hasn't resulted that resold. Tickets in the next year's event to help cover the cost, and it was the third traffic and conversion summit where I remember looking on room about eight hundred people saying this might be thing. And so at TNC three was, when we launched digital marketer. So that was so digital marketer kinda launched in twenty seven twenty twelve but it really didn't even get going until about twenty fourteen but yeah, definitely TNC event came first the event earth, the, the community, which is what birth digital marketers and brand. How'd you get people to come to the first conference begged was personally mailing people in telling them I'm doing this? Do you wanna come if yeah? Yeah. I mean so we had list. Right. I mean I had. Fairly slowly. So I said doing this thing, here's why it's going to be different. I think we sold eighty something tickets. And in our goal was like, if I can just get two hundred people in the room, don't feel like a really significant events. That was my goal. I wanted at least one hundred or I was just going to cancel the whole thing. So we got eighty which is worst number in the world, right? Because it's too much this happens in business. Right. You mentioned have total miserable failure than something that's close so close enough that we just had to make it work. And so, yeah, it was it was just hand to hand combat random. I'm emailing people. We direct old our customers at the time yet paper printed out fold fix the stamp put it in customers your of your digital educational products. Yeah, exactly. I even went to friends of mine who I knew had stuff. And I said, can I direct mail your customers? You don't have to send me their stuff send it to senior customer list of this mailing house. I will cover all the costs. It'll be your to Philly Lincoln there sous everything that I can do that. We can do just to just to fill it up. I think even with some products at the end, we wanna bonuses a ticket. It was everything we can do in the first one had around two hundred eighty something attendees, which we saw a huge, huge win until eighty tickets. But then at the day of it was two hundred and eighty people who showed up. No, we sold eighty tickets with maybe a month ago. So we did a big promotion, sonnet it and Joe had about a month ago. And I think we only had one hundred or so in the last two weeks, we almost doubled the number of tickets that we sold, which I now know from doing events now for over a decade. That's not a typical like I'll sell a little meet people decide in the last minute, it's actually buy the ticket. I do. And so you're saying it's if one hundred tickets are sold before you might get another two hundred after the last month or so, you, you get an additional one hundred for tow. Another got it. And so in your case you ended up with two hundred eighty people how did you lose money when it's two hundred eighty people paying to come to this event? I think the ticket was only a couple hundred dollars and you know, to put on event with with av in. We had printed binders for everyone. I. I think our total costs were at least one hundred hundred twenty thousand dollars..
