      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

      Hey man, do you provide any mentoring opportunities?
      1. IceCreamKid
        IceCreamKid
        Sorry I don't, brother. I'll occasionally jump on a free quick call when people need some direction though. Daily mentoring takes too much time.

        Weekends are best for me. Can you please PM me a list of what exactly you're dealing with so that we have a specific agenda before we jump on a call?

        Although my posts in the forum are mainly discussing mindset, I focus in the realm of strategic customer acquisition these days. Hopefully you're an action taking junkie already =P

      You gave me trustworthy, genuine advice during a really crazy time in my life.

      That single phone conversation was f*cking profound, because your enthusiasm for life was infectious, and it really rubbed off on me that day.

      I know you might think that you wasted your time chatting with me. But I just wanted to let you know that you've made a massive difference in my life. You're an amazing human being.

      IceCreamKid,

      Thank you man. I never followed up with you after our phone conversation in 2014 when I was considering dropping out of college and starting a sex toy company.

      Even though I eventually pursued a *much different* business, the time that you took out of your day to talk with me literally changed the course of my life.

      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".

      Hi ICK,
      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.

      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!
      1. IceCreamKid
        IceCreamKid
        This is more of a personal question and I hate being that guy who tells people what they should do with their life, but I'll just say that if I were to post my own progress thread then I would be vague about what my product is. There have been a few instances of successful members having their products copied by other members.

        Thank you for the prompt response. Point taken. I was looking to get some outside perspective on the website that might help me improve it, but like you said, some people have some twisted intentions. I will remove the website name and see how still keep the PT.
        The good thing is that it takes a lot of calling farms to establish a relationship, which a lot of people are not willing to do. Thank you again

        Totally true. What you'll realize after you build your first successful biz is that the idea is really only worth 10-20% of the biz. The rest is just hard work and grinding through daily.

      Hey Ryan,
      I'm new to the forum, but have studied your zen******* secrets thread. Your posts are extremely eye-opening and I'm super grateful.

      Being 18 I'm young but want to give people what they want.

      Tomorrow I will be contacting companies to see their pain points.

      After that I will find a mentor, seems like a daunting task.

      Keep spreading the knowledge, you are helping many people!

      Thanks,

      Tristan

      Hey IceCreamKid,

      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.
