Hi, IceCreamKid, sorry for how I approached you the other day. The way I wrote all that looked like I was a child looking for candy (ICK- You know what helps me determine which phase someone is in? Their use of words.) I didn't mean to rush it in like that. I was in the state of feeling awesome inside and taking shitty action. Now I feel like that but by taking action this time! I would love to PM you. Thank you ICK
dear Mr IceCreamKid. I'm one of your loyal reader from Indonesia, South East Asia. I'm 26 year old. Thank for sharing your great article. really unique and interesting perspective.
Can you share the top 3 mindset you believe for create value and successful business?
also i having trouble finding an idea to get my ice cream. can you share some of your experience to help me?
Gone thru your post where you mentioned about stock options as cash flow.
I am regular investor in stock market & I know about basics of stock options . Will appreciate if you share how it can be used.
part 3.. I need to change and I feel the pain has started to intensify. I stumbled upon your posts and have found them very refreshing. I wish I could somehow talk to you - not about finding an idea for me etc but just to "talk". If that isn't possible, I''d understand. I am glad I found this forum and your posts and I thank you sincerely for taking out the time for posting your thoughts.
My best wishes - IWC Man
part 2...I have been out of the job market for almost 5 years now with no intentions of going back. I quit my lucrative i-banking job about 5 years ago with the intention of starting something of my own. Since, I have half heartedly dabbled with a few things but nothing concrete to show for results so far. It has been painful at times but I guess as the story went about the dog,"it probably doesnt hurt too bad".
Hope you have been well. I bet you have a bunch of followers and that you don't need any ego massaging but I'd still go ahead and write this to you although I haven't done this kind of stuff ever. I am a new member here and have recently read the book recently. I am 38, well educated, have had a successful professional career but have hit some self created roadblocks. tbc..
I am taking time to read The Millionaire Fastlane and select posts on the forums, and have stumbled upon your "Astonishing Secrets" thread.
I'm a fellow 29 year old (if you haven't turned 30 yet), grinding like a madman. starting to feel success.
Wanted to express my gratitude and say THANK YOU, for your honesty and willingness to open up and share your view of life and business.
You improved me.
new here... but... i just wanted to give you mad props on that epic post about giving back and harnessing the power of gratitude. probably the best post i've read all year... i am so motivated to help people succeed so i can make tons of ice cream and share it with the kids in cambodia. thanks!
Dude, I just wanted to say thanks again for providing so much value to a group of anonymous online peeps. I got an insider subscription to pay MJ back for making this awesome forum, and if there is any way I can pay you back for the invaluable knowledge you've provided, please don't hesitate to ask!
Hey ICK, I started a Progress Thread on my website, in order to be held accountable and get moving with action. While reading your thread of things Zen never said, you said you didn't mention your business because people have stolen form here before... should I hid my website? Thank you and Thanks for everything you post on the forums!
I am reading your "The Astonishing Secrets That zen******* Never Told You" thread and I can say that this is the best thread I have ever read on a forum on mindset. Thank you for contributing and helping others building their own ice cream shop . I am halfway through your thread and I already have a big change on mindset.
I read your thread `The Astonishing Secrets That zen******* Never Told You`, you mentioned in your post that process is everything. What`s your process? How do you approach bringing a product successfully to the market? Another question is that you stated in this post that you often get money before you even have the product(pre-selling). How do you do that? I really appreciate your answer!
You provide a tremendous amount of value to this forum. I was reading one of your threads and was very moved by it. In this thread you mentioned that you were more interested in off-line businesses. Do you mind if I ask how you are able to scale? I also read that you were in your 20's and making five figures per month, just seeing that is motivation! That is so awesome to see. Thank you and good luck.
Thank you. Thank you for caring. Thank you for helping others. Been reading your posts and your writing is very inspiring man! i wish you multiplied success bro.
Been reading your magnum opus thread and I just wanted to say thank you for giving so much of your time, while trying to educate others. Really inspirational, if I believed in God, I would ask him/her/it to bless you, but for now, thanks again!
Much admiration for your willingness to provide huge value for others..Located in southern calif and would love to grab lunch as a small token of gratitude for everything you have done here. If schedule too busy, please PM a mailing address so I can send you a lunch gift card.
