No Longer A Virgin...

45 replies
This post marks my 10,000th post here... as
recorded since we moved to this platform.

I think that during some of the updates, a
long time ago, in a place far away, that I
lost a few posts :-)

This is significant because it also indicated
to me that I have spent a LOT of time on the
forum posting, and more importantly learning.

You see, I spend many times as much time
reading, and learning as I do posting here

There IS a lot of wisdom shared here, and some
great resources... especially in The War Room.
If you are not a member, you ARE missing out :-)

Any time that I can't find the answer anywhere
else, I have two options likely to tell me what
I need to know FAST.

1) I can Google it. The problem with that is
that I often don't know a lot about the person
who gave the answer that I end up reading.

2) I can post the question here. In the old
days... I also knew WHO was likely to answer
the question (Seasoned, Paul Myers, Dr. Mani,
Jack Humphrey, etc.). I knew who had what
expertise here... and have no doubt there IS
a lot of expertise here.

I'll shut up after offering one bit of
advice to the newer members. USE the wisdom
here to grow your business. There are literally
thousands of hot ideas here for articles,
ebooks, software, services, etc.

Assuming some of the 344,153 members here are
in your target market, then some of the 3,584,267
posts here tell you what problems they have and
what products they will happily buy from you
if you are willing to offer them real solutions
to those problem.

    Willie,

    Congrats on achieving your 10kth post :-)

    You're right of course... there is an enormous amount
    of learning available IF you're willing to look for it.

        Great minds do think alike.

        So many say that they are willing, but their actions
        prove differently

        At the same time, there are many who stumble across an
        idea, and discretely go off into some corner and come out
        with a product a month later that makes them a quick
        6-figures.

        The other essential though is the ability to make decisions
        rather than over-analyzing. Otherwise, fear generally wins.

      Congratulations on your 10,000th post.

      Your thread was one of the 1st ones I stumbled on when I joined the forum.

      I'll shut up after offering one bit of
      advice to the newer members. USE the wisdom
      here to grow your business. There are literally
      thousands of hot ideas here for articles,

      What you just said is GOLDEN! The sad thing is many will read the information and then post a thread asking if someone tried a particular strategy and what were their results, instead of taking ACTION!

      Thank you for being a great contributor.

    Congratulations Willie on the milestone that you are right now. Wow, 10k posts and still growing. Thank you for the information that you have shared to the warriorforum and for the insights, concepts and ideas that you have shared to newbies such as me when I was new to WF. I was still on the process of learning, and even now, still in the process because learning doesn't really end when one has familiarized the process.

      Willie, there is a reason why God gave us to ears and only one mouth. Too
      many marketers spend too much time talking and not enough time listening
      to what others have to offer.

      To the other members.

      Whenever I have a question, or am not sure of something, this is the first
      place I come to. I know there are members here who WILL have the answers
      I am looking for or at least have some insight into the problem I'm having.

      I have learned more from this forum than any ebook, membership site,
      coaching course or anything else that I've gotten my hands on in the 8 years
      that I have been running my own business.

      I wasn't here back in the good old days so I can't say what it was like or if
      it was better or worse than it is now. However, if you take the time to go
      through the info here and learn what sources are reliable, you'll learn more
      than you will from just about any other source.

      Willie, it has been a true honor to get to know you and speak with you as
      you've been a great help to me. When I was a virtual nobody, you gave me
      your time when others would not. It has not been forgotten.

      Congratulations on your 10,000 posts. I am sure there will be very many
      more to come.

    I thought my post count showed that I had way too much time on my hands... :p

    Then I saw that you have 10,000 posts Willie...

    Then the first two people to answer you, John Taylor and Big Mike had over 9,000 posts each...

    Now I don't feel as much as I did just this morning that I am a prime candidate for Warrior Forum Anonymous and the 12-steps to Warrior Forum addiction recovery.

    But then again, I have put 4800 of my posts in the last 13 months...

        hi Brian, yes, just haven't posted in years, much, lately.. busy.

        Looks like the wf continues to grow and thrive, and stay relevant; that's good to see. And top warriors like Willie certainly are a big part of its success.
