Just a question out of sheer curiosity as I sit here burning the midnight oil. I've been in the IM game for some years(5 officially) now, and have enjoyed my journey thus far. It's been no cake walk and becoming full time was a arduous feat in itself. Nonetheless, I've been able to take from many sources and learn what I needed to learn that got me to this point. Though I feel my knowledge thus far is above average. It still baffles me that I will shell out cash for products that still yet have the ability to convey their value in a manner that makes me feel as if I need it. Now, along the way I've cultivated some great relationships with some of the top IM'rs and receive a lot of products free, but for those I don't know I find myself getting sucked into buying their creation. Why do I or any of us still do this when the skills and know how we possess is more than sufficient to acquire results beyond measure? Your thoughts are appreciated.
