Hello - Chris Farrell here.
I have not been here in Warrior Forum for 2 years or so.
And there is good reason.
I was banned.
However - I have now been allowed back - and I'd like to apologize publicly to Warrior Forum.
The very quick backstory....
As some may know - I was brand new to this business in 2008.
I literally knew no one or nothing about it (other than I wanted to get involved).
I now have a 7 figure a year web business. It has however taken a LOT of work (as we all know) -- and I have made some mistakes along the way.
One - I made here in Warrior Forum - resulting in me being banned.
I'd like to - if I may - explain what happened - and apologize publicly.
Back in 2009 - I was learning as much as I could about this bizz (I still am)
And I would post here most days - asking questions and helping when I could.
However -- often I would want further clarification on questions that I had asked.
I remember one particular example -- I wanted to understand how to make an image a hyperlink.
I would get some answers -- but I always needed further clarification (yes maybe I'm a bit slow....)
The cold brutal truth is -- I just felt 'stupid' continuing to ask further questions as me - so I created two other Warrior Accounts.
I would then ask further questions -- if I wanted further help/illumination -- using one of my other accounts.
There was nothing Machiavellian or under-hand about this -- I simply was embarrassed to keep asking as 'me' for more help.
I also did post a few times - asking if others had heard of my website. This I am extremely embarrassed about now - 2 years on - and I wanted to apologize.
Can I add however I did not do this to bump up a thread or a WSO (in fact I have never had a WSO).
WF (understandably) then banned me for using multiple accounts.
Anyhow -- it was getting to the point that I was getting really embarrassed about this ban -- particularly as I am now working with many thought and industry leaders in this bizz (Alex Mandossian - Gary Vaynerchuck - T Harv Eker - Brain Tracy - Mike Filsaime...to name but a few).
So I asked the powers here at WF to reconsider -- and they have.
So - the lesson learned?
When using any third party service/site/application -- ALWAYS stick to their rules.
And always be honest - if you make a mistake - make immediate steps to rectify it. Most people are naturally forgiving if it really was an error.
Anyway - I wanted to apologize for this.
So - thank you to WF for having me back -- and if I can help anyone at anytime -- please do not hesitate to let me know. I really do mean that.
