    How would you make money on a 18k FB group?

    I would also recommend building an email list from those 18k members. That's an asset you can take with you should Facebook decide to upend the applecart in some way.

    GOLD! Lex DeVille's: Guru Cults Exposed: The Tactics "Experts" Use To Pull You In & Suck You Dry

    Agreed. I also think there is a time and place for seminars that are generally more motivational/inspirational than strategic/tactical. The questions in my mind are: What is the content creator promising to deliver? Are they completely transparent about what's included within the content...

    GOLD! Lex DeVille's: Guru Cults Exposed: The Tactics "Experts" Use To Pull You In & Suck You Dry

    Damn, @SinisterLex, you are dropping serious value here. One of the things that struck me about the hypothetical conversation above is how similar it is to a coaching session. Years ago, I became a certified coach (don't ask) and I learned the power of asking questions (then shutting up and...

    Are there any Business Consultants out there?

    In my experience, consulting can give you a basic toolbox for problem-solving and it definitely exposes you to a lot of different personalities and environments. You'll learn how to ask questions that elicit meaningful answers. You'll learn how to frame customer challenges in a way that allows...

    Are there any Business Consultants out there?

    I've been a business consultant for many years, mostly around change management, marketing technology and process improvement. One of the first things you'll want to think about is what kind of problems you can solve and what types of clients you want to work with. "Consulting" is a broad term...

    Are You Depressed? Paralyzed By Fear? Try this...

    Thanks for sharing your story, @Almantas — the good, the bad, and the ugly. It takes courage to admit to our hurts, frustrations and disappointments. Seems you found one of the "secrets" to happiness is simply finding ways to help others achieve their goals, something that's preached again and...

    INTRO Re-introducing myself the right way

    Yes, I think you've summed up the modern mindset in this one statement. Instant gratification / consumerism (part of the Scripted life) outweighs the mid- to long-term rewards of the Unscripted life. :arghh:

    INTRO Re-introducing myself the right way

    Terrific introduction, @natyms. Thanks for sharing. I can relate to the start-stop treadmill of the Slowlane, 9-to-5. The steady income and benefits are a tempting lure. IMO, it can (ironically) be even worse when the job environment is comfortable rather than stressful. It provides even less...

    INTRO Cheers, Fastlaners

    Cheers Fastlaners, Thrilled to be part of this community. I found my way here via The Millionaire Fastlane, which had an immediate impact on me (not unlike a boot in the a$$). I’ve been an entrepreneur for most of my life. My first venture was serving as a trumpet tutor in middle school...

    GOLD! I've Read UNSCRIPTED!

    Reading Unscripted again. "The Paradigm is Shit" section is like a bitch-slap to the face each and every time. When I start to slack off or fall into some self-pity BS, I re-read this and get back into ACTION. Thank you, @MJ DeMarco !
