Hello,
Neglecting the fact that it supports the forum, does the rest of the benefits make it worth it to you? And why?

Just an FYI for anyone considering...

Because this is a consumable product as well as other privacy concerns, there are NO REFUNDS on new subscriptions. THERE IS NO TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.

You don't get to peek at it for 3 days and then say, "Meh, I didn't find the exact steps, give me a refund" or "No one liked my T-shirt business!"

If this is problematic for you, no worries. I understand. My advice to you is to save your money.


If you need to kick the tires and peek, save your money and go buy a 67 steps course.

But MJ, that ain't customer service like you preach!

Actually it is.
It's customer service to my customers; paying members who pay for an ad-free forum, privacy, and have posted content on the inside. My customers are INSIDERS, not tire kickers and "give me exact steps" types looking for the holy grail at zero risk and zero cost.

I’ll be honest, and I’m sure there are a few other members on the forum that will agree.. I don’t really spend much time on the “outside”

Most of the in depth progress threads are on the inside. With a few exceptions, most progress threads on the outside are very vague and you don’t really get a good feel for how things are being accomplished.

I dunno, I shouldn’t really have to sell the inside. Do or don’t, it’s your call. But if you had the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with high level thinkers, do you think that would help your business?

Like anything else, if you really dig in and apply the countless lessons learned, of course it will be worth it.

However, if you're looking for a quick fix or the "secret" on the inside, you're going to be disappointed that it takes hard work and a lot of persistent effort.

Why dont you eliminate the public forum / community all together?

If he did, then people who are 'lost' in the SCRIPT might not have a chance to even get a peek at what is possible.

People who lost jobs, failed in work or business or are hanging on a single financial string are demoralised and desperate, looking for answers. They aren't really the ideal Fastlane warriors that we find in the INSIDERS.

They should be given a chance to learn new things and improve themselves.

Of course, not every newcomer here is like that. But this forum strengthens the weak, and should remain so.

Even then, the public forum has its own entry barriers, like rep points, speed, the oversight of more senior Fastlane members and MJ himself. So elimination of the public forum is not necessary.

Gotta get your feet wet first.
Merely reading doesn't get you wet.
At most, reading TFLF posts get you to the edge of the river. You still have to leap in and get a nice soak!:playful:

Perhaps I did.
I was coming from the point view of keeping out more aggressive threats like trolls or spammers.

Were you coming from the point of view of keeping out action fakers?

If you are...it's a mistake that all of us do and repair. Sometimes we never know what we do is wrong until the results surface.

Not really. I was just thinking that the INSIDERS dont exist without the pr to the outsiders. I could be wrong. Just Seems wrong for mj to dog the outsiders.

Is this a serious question? How do you think the forum got to where it is now?

Wat. The cringe is strong with this one.

We really need the negative rep button back.

Many members, including me, would never share their progress to the outside.

I once gave too much info on one post, which was luckily instantly noticed and communicated to me by a sharp and honest member (@maverick). If this happened on the outside, I might have to deal with some copycats as we speak.

If you read Unscripted (which I doubt), you would also know that it were the members who asked MJ for an "inside".

It's the best investment I have ever made in my life, not even kidding. I was pretty much flat broke when I stumbled upon this forum last year, and used what money I had to get the INSIDERS subscription. I went on to make over $40,000 last year which I never would have if it wasn't for everything I had read on the "inside", now I sit here again about to be homeless soon and it will be the first thing I buy when I can afford it... So hope that helps your decision.

I wonder if we allowed members to buy an INSIDERS subscription with let’s say, $5,000 rep dollars, would it increase user activity?
Theoretically it could.
But I wonder about the resulting quality though....

Some stuff in INSIDERS CAN be very helpful to make real-life kills in creating real value in business, so to credit the value for them, I'd stick to real money.

BTW, if you don't have a forum account, you cannot be an INSIDERS.
If you haven't read TMF , you cannot be an INSIDERS.

Someone subscribed (via Viperion Publishing) and they have no forum username, or they haven't provided it.

What happened to the 40k? Models & bottles?

Ugh, whenever I hear the phrase "Work hard, play harder" I hear, "I'm a high income Sidewalker."
