When I look at all of today's leaders in the IM "industry" I
have to smile, because I remember when most of them were just
Kern, Pierce, Walker, Fallon, Schefren, Filsaime... hey,
I've been around forever.
I also submit that most of them remember too.
Many of them cut there teeth right here on Warrior Forum
Russell Brunson, whom I consider a bright, caring, genuine
marketing expert, was once a college wrestler, asking "dumb
questions" right here on the forum... and testing his sig file,
and running WSO's.
Keith Wellman was every bit as frustrated as many of you often
come off as being. He once posted on this very forum what "scammers"
or "frauds" most of the gurus are. Actually, I'd have to look up
Keith's exact words, but he hadn't cracked the code yet.
Mike Filsaime noticed Keith's frustrated post and invited him
to a seminar in Denver that I was also a speaerk at, and gave Keith
Keith listened, did what was suggested, and never looked back.
In fact, he looked over at his dad, Jeff, and made him a guru
Speaking of Mike... I can still remember him asking lots of
questions here, and as he prepared for product launches,
bouncing emails off me in the middle of the night.
I interviewed Mike back around 2007 and he described what it
was like, begin an outsider, and breaking in to "the guru club."
Actually, what he did was form his own inner circle... how he
built a successful IM business is very insightful.
Yes, I've been a fly on the wall, watching lots of Warriors
find their niche, take massive proper action, and suddenly
they are looked at as "gurus"... and they are pretty savvy people.
... and I don't use the term guru in a derogatory fashion...
I use it to mean someone who has achieved far above average
success in our niche.
Buried deep within this forum is 1000 such success stories.
No, they can't really look at you with disgust or disdain,
as we often suggest in our comments. We all came from the same
place... and we remember.
Ok, back to bashing
