If you'd like to keep your Unscripted journey on track, please text me direct at the number above, or click my signature to subscribe.

If you are in IDEA mode, text "IDEA" to the above number.

If you are in LAUNCH/START mode, text "LAUNCH" to the above number.

If you are in GROWTH/SCALE mode, text "GROWTH" to the above number.


In return, you'll receive periodic text messages direct from me (NOT A VA) -- these text messages can be motivational, strategy-driven, latest books Fastlaner's are recommending, or a new thread/post on the forum with valuable content.

AND IT IS CURRENTLY FREE!

And to answer your question, I do respond to many of the PERSONAL text messages. (SEE BELOW)

1616429804153.png

In other words, this just isn't a massive text mailer, but a personal contact that I will monitor.

Obviously I can't answer every question, but I will definitely do my best.

This is also great if you don't visit the forum as often as you'd like, but still would like to stay atop of any GOLD or NOTABLE threads that might surface from time to time.

As of now, the service is available in US and Canada -- I hope I can have it expanded worldwide soon.

Because it is a TXT service, message and data rates may apply for a maximum of 20 messages per month. Text "STOP" will cancel at anytime.

The service is quite affordable if you have 1000 customers who are messaged a few times per month...

Not for 50,000 customers who might get messages 4X a week.
@MJ DeMarco For the service you plan on providing, a Telegram group might work the way you want. I know a Telegram group allows up to 200,000 people in it for free. And if you only want one way communication you can restrict group members from sending messages altogether. Perhaps their FAQ may help you determine whether this would be a good alternative.

So after 20 texts in a month we have to pay? What if I have unlimited talk/text cellphone service?

Ha Ha, no.

There is no fee no matter how many I send, only a fee if your carrier charges for text messages (do they even do that anymore????)

Oh ok. Yes the paid as you go where you buy a certain amount of minutes/data/texts still charge per text. But if you're paying a monthly bill they don't, it's all unlimited. I still don't get the maximum of 20 texts a month disclaimer.

Simply so the person knows what to expect....

If I join this, will my phone be blowing up all hours of the day and night?
Is it one message a month? A week?

I've received 2 text messages so far and it's really awesome. I feel like I'm completely stuck and the messages are like reality checks that I really need.

Thank you, I'm loving this right now as it gives me a direct line to readers.

Some of the comments are awesome and helps me keep the motivational fires burning!

Right now the group is still small, but I've been able to respond to most.

This is really cool to have some kind of direct line with you. Thanks for doing this, especially opening it up to non-americans. I installed Telegram to join and look very much forward to it !

@MJ DeMarco

I had the original number and then added myself to the second/new number. Did I have to click the link and enter my contact info to get properly set up? I'm trying to click now but it's going to a 404 page.

Haven't received anything on the new number so wasn't sure if it was working or not.

Visit here with your phone, MJ DeMarco

or just text anything to the 480 # and follow the instructions-- that subscribes you. A text was just sent about CONTROL, did you receive it?

The last thing I got was the text about the financial mistake and then changing to the new number. I didn't add my contact info. I just sent a message to the number with my screenname.

EDIT: Looks like I'm in now. Thanks!

My guess is that if you didn't enter some type of contact info, it didn't take - try again and let me know, I can message you back DIRECT if I see something.

I think it's working now. I didn't originally enter my contact information on the new number so it probably didn't put me on the list. That was my fault that I didn't do it at the time.

If you’re trying to click the link through the old number it brought me to a page where I couldn’t find out how to enter my new details. It just showed your community info.
Solution: text unscripted to the new number and the community link will be resent where you can fill out your info. Proceed to delete the old number.

I get the convenience of text, but I'm just curious. Cant anyone just message you via PM or is that already too overwhelming?

Yes you can message me direct, and I've responded to most (the list is still manageable) though I can't say it would be like that in the future as the list grows.

On one hand I hope the list stays small so this continues, but on the other hand, I see the massive value skew of you answering your customers and know this will grow way too big!! And that is a good thing :)

Nice work once again, MJ!

The Unscripted Network has exceeded my expectations already.

The group has grown significantly but I'm still managing to keep it personal.

I really love the intimate connection.

Today I asked the group their most valuable business tool, and wow, what a response! There are tools mentioned that I haven't even heard of -- I hope to aggregate this list and send it back to the group in a complete report so everyone can benefit from the responses.

Just some comments about the network thus far...

This week I asked the group what their favorite/most valued business tool was.

Got a ton of responses which I aggregated. You can see the data below.

Blue = Many Mentions
Green = Several Mentions
White = 1 or 2 mentions

Some of these resources I never heard of so it was a great question to ask.

Just a little what you can expect from the Unscripted Network!

My response was similar: software - but it’s software built by our company that only we use - but are bringing to market soon.

I take it the list only includes well known products?

Products that are available, if your tool is only available to your company, it was not included.

My response was similar: software - but it’s software built by our company that only we use - but are bringing to market soon.
This reminds me of the origin story of Slack.

The company originally built it to solve the inner teams’ communication issues while they were developing a game.

However, they realized the game wasn’t going anywhere and this communication software they built was better than anything out there in the market and decided to pivot.

Slack was acquired by Salesforce for $27.7B as of December 2020.


You can extract ideas from your everyday problems. Chances are, millions of other people are facing the same but aren’t solution-aware or even problem-aware.

The challenge lies in finding these people and repackaging your solution in a way that makes people believe the (perceived) value they receive is worth more than the money they spend. That’s what I’m facing with my household invention right now. We’re never short of ideas. We’re short of execution.

Slack wouldn’t exist had the founders not first executed on developing a game although it turned out a flop. The Universe rewards those who take action, and you can only connect the dots looking backwards.


P.S. Just jotting down my reflections and definitely don’t wanna derail this thread. Hope whoever reads this find some value here! :)

If you are in IDEA mode, text "IDEA" to the above number.

If you are in LAUNCH/START mode, text "LAUNCH" to the above number.

If you are in GROWTH/SCALE mode, text "GROWTH" to the above number.

FYI (see above) I've updated the network to include various tiers which should help me to target messages better once needed.
