    We all respect Sean.

    We’re here, not only because of that, but because we believe in this project.

    Two things are implied.

    One is that we want to help each other.

    The other is that we hope to gain something for ourselves.

    This second one is the elephant in the room, and that’s what I’d like to hear about.

    So instead of pretending that it’s not there, let’s talk about it.

    What do you hope to get out of this group?

    I find that my ideas take form when they’re shared, Bruce. I hope to better clarify my own work by getting thoughts outside of my head and down on this digital paper. PLUS … I learn from the experience of others.

    I hope to learn from others and get answers/referrals/ideas when I have a problem, and help where I can. I believe in “give to get,” give to others and it will come back to you. People who are only in it for themselves tend to disappear quickly.

    This is a great start.

    If there was a Like button, then I’d click it. 🙂

    I hope that I can give people a depth of understanding about the things they’re thinking about that exceeds what they can get elsewhere and, I make no apologies for saying that I also hope that I can get some new business as well.

    In addition to gaining the knowledge I need to further my goals, I hope I can contribute in some small way to someone else’s success.

    First and foremost, I see this as a place to help others and receive help at the same time. I like the accountability aspect as I find myself drifting too often. It got to a point where I would come home from work (as a teacher), watch five or six tutorial videos, and feel as if I spent the last two hours working on my business. Don’t get me wrong — education is important, but if you do nothing with it, it’s useless. For some reason, it took me a long time to get over that hurdle. I’ve gotten better, but I think this is the place that will give me the push I need.

    Second, I’m hoping to get some product ideas and information for blog posts. After all, we’re here because we want to make money as well as provide help, right? I really believe the latter to be more important, though. I’ve been told that if your focus is on helping people, the money will come. If you’re just looking to make money and that’s all you’re chasing, you’ll spin your wheels. I’m tired of spinning my wheels.

    That’s very kind of you Jan. Maybe we can talk about some kind of a Finder’s Fee for you.

    It’s also a really tough question to answer, LOL.

    My strengths lie in deep thinking and reasoning. I ask questions that no one else seems to.

    In museums, for example, the most common answer I get when I ask something is, “No one has ever asked me that before.”

    Now I’m telling you this is because I like to write about topics that have a lot of scope for talking about why people do what they do and what they should do differently.

    So, for example, I’ve written a lot about leadership, management, organizational change, employee motivation, etc.

    In the IM world, that takes the form of what’s holding you back? Why do you think A is true of you? Why are you distracted? Why do you procrastinate? What should you do differently in order to get past these obstacles?

    You can see that all of this is appropriate for entrepreneurs, which is my target audience.

    I could refine that further to online entrepreneurs, IM-ers in particular, though not necessarily exclusively. And of course people such as management consultants and those who have small businesses and are struggling to know how to manage their people.

    Is that specific enough for you?

    Why would you want to retire, Scott? 😉

    As long as you’re having fun and you’re healthy enough to carry on, why stop?

    Who said retirement can’t be fun? 😀

    I plan on doing some of the things I am doing as long as I live or can, but others I would quit today if I could.

    The problem now is most of the money would stop if I quit them and it would be less than I want to live on and fund my Church charities with.

    After a few family and personal tragedies, I am not rich anymore, financially comfortable, but not financially rich anymore.

    After the tragedies I realize that you don’t know how much money you will need.

    You don’t know when a drunk driver will hit your family and spend over half a million of your money over a 2 second car wreck. I didn’t know life flights are $30,000 each and there is no volume discount. You don’t know when a surgeon will have a bad day and you can’t work for over a year or a family member will come down with cancer and the uncovered expenses are hundreds of thousands. You don’t know how much money your grandchild with a birth defect will need or your widowed mother will need for medical care. You don’t know when an insurance company will cancel you or say you reached your lifetime benefit cap.

    They are worth so much more than the money, but if I hadn’t had the money, they would have got the best care charity could provide, not the best care money could provide and that can be a life and death difference.

    So I am working on being rich again.

    Some things I would do until I can’t, but I would retire the others and raise the grandchildren and call it playing with them.

    I keep hearing I am not playing enough Minecraft… I would fix that.

    Wow, Scott.

    You’ve really been through it.

    Zig Ziglar famously said that if you help enough other people get what they want, then you can have what you want.

    So rather than focus on getting rich, instead devote yourself to helping as many as you can.

    Easier said, than done – I know; but your motives are vital to your success.

    I totally agree Bruce. There is the longest word in the bible Maher-shalal-hash-baz. It means hastening after the spoil speeds the prey.
    When you are chasing people for their money, they run. Surprise!

    When you are trying to help people they stand still.

    The goal is not exactly getting rich again.

    It is to help so many people that I am compensated richly.

    or something like that,
    best to you and yours,

    Great topic, Bruce. I had to make notes to get my thoughts in order.

    The selfless part: I’m an encourager by nature, so I’ll try my best here in this active group.

    The more selfish parts: I love being in a community of entrepreneurs, active users that engage.

    Parts of my main site will be similar to what Sean has put together here. I wanted to see how he uses bbPress and BuddyPress especially, and see how he identifies the “givers.”

    I get good feedback on content already, but I lack marketing feedback. I was pretty sure I could get that here.

    I was inspired by Sean’s prior courses on big business, helping millions, the platform development class, and the GrenPico predecessor to this site. Likewise, I’ve seen what Josh Umbehr has done with his membership program for delivering conventional medical care. I’d like to take Umbehr’s model a step further and into the alternative healthcare world as an online membership system.

    Finally, this site and group comes at a great time for me. I’m working on the lofty goals of (re-)creating inheritance for my kids and becoming world class again.

    I think I sort of answered this in another post, but here goes.

    I hope to get, first of all, continued access to Sean’s expertise. I could probably just continue with the course I bought, because he really breaks it down, but there’s something about having continued instruction and feedback that I find useful.

    Also, as what we do is a somewhat isolating and misunderstood experience, it’s helpful to interact with others who are doing it, which makes this forum invaluable. I used to frequent the Warrior Forum, for instance, in search of similar atmosphere. There, however, there are too many people asking stuff like “how do I get started?” and “how can I make $100 by tomorrow?” – that kind of stuff….along with people who are just there to spam their wares. (I actually think Warrior Forum is a shell of its former self these days…but, that’s another topic for another time.) I like that nobody here is going in blindly, precisely because we’ve all got Sean’s training. it’s a different playing field altogether, and the atmosphere reflects that.

    Of course, the end goal is to strengthen my online business…bettering lives and hopefully creating some financial security in the process.

    Bruce,
    Ha ha, nice one! 🙂 I think that’s true. We are all starting with the same great basic knowledge, at least (or the ability to obtain it).

    I think paying for the forum actually helps weed out the fact that we are all serious about it. Like the old theory that a smoking cessation or similar support group will be more successful if you pay for it, because it will mean more to you.
