Remember the words you type on this page may well outlast you. Think of how you want the future to see you. Do you really want your grand children and great grand children stumbling across some not so nice posts?
Don't forget about now either. The way you act or don't act here can have many implications in your business. Your words can very well affect the way others are willing to interact with you. Do you want to brand yourself a thief that no one would ever partner with or would you rather have JV offers beating down your door?
Post counts, and all other external things really aren't the measure of a persons worth. There are some members with thousands of posts I would never work with and others with very few who have proven themselves in their behaviours in this forum. It is your own judgement call, don't leave it up to the numbers to decide for you. Make your own judgements as you make your own posts, both can build your business or destroy it.
Try giving more. The more you give the more you will recieve. Okay it's a little cliche, but it doesn't mean it isn't true. The person you help today may very well be the person tomorrow that sends your whole business through the roof.
Don't forget the little people once you make it big; after all, at some point you were there too and I am sure if someone didn't help you in one way or the other, you wouldn't be where you are now either.
Remember you are a guest here. Allen allows us this wonderful place, it is not a right, it is a priviledge and remember priviledges can be revoked without any prior word.
Build your relationships here and hold them strong. I mean really, that is a key factor in this business. Without relationships you may never overcome your next plateau, or your next obstacle. If you have no one to turn to, evaluate why. Is it because you are only a taker, or is it something else? Change it before it stunts the future for you.
And remember that most of us are here to build a business, really think of how your actions are building it or destroying it. Are you just in it for the few short bucks you get riding on someone else's coat tails or are you building an income, a future for yourself.
Most of all have fun. Life is too short not to. For all you know there is no tomorrow so live today as your last.
Thank you all for being a part of my life and my business and thank you again Allen for this wonderful place of yours that so many of us call home.
May 2009 be the best year for each and everyone of you and may you forge a new friendship or relationship on this wonderful forum each and every day.
