Someone in a specific niche posted a new thread telling how desperate he was after trying to achieve success in something specific, after he tried A, B and C over and over again.

Told him to provide me some video context of the issue so I could help, along with some explanation of what he could be doing better.

I got a couple of private messages like that not too long after my reply:

25019

For the insiders, that's directly related to the original idea I had in my intro post on the Inside.

Definitely trying this out !

Fancy that! You helped someone, was seen to help someone, and now people want to hire you. Do you think “PM me” would have worked as well?

Well done, and thanks for the case study that giving value first comes back tenfold.

A few months ago, I probably would not have replied or contacted the person at all.

I don't want to hold back that feeling of "I think I could help" anymore. If I believe I can help, I'll chime in. Let's throw value everywhere.
