Ever Attended a Seen-On-TV Symposium?

I was curious to know if any SDopers have paid to attend one of those “you can be successful like me” symposiums, or related topic? Specifically, what do they emphasize? Do they sound legit with good ideas to share, or more like a person who knows just enough about psychology ot be dangerous?

I ask because I recently visited a headhunter-like service pitching what sounded like a “power of positive thinking” schtick at me…and I’ll teach ya how for a steep price. Just wondering if any SDoper walked away with anything useful, or a new outlook on something, that they’d like to share? I thought this would be a good place to post such a question, get feedback, take a poll, and maybe learn something, too.
