I've Done This Before...and I'm Thankful

I want to tell you a quick story...queue the Freddy Mercury music:  I received the pre-order first edition of 48 Days to the Work You Love on a cold Tennessee afternoon, and I was warmly encouraged that the wisdom I had encountered first on local Nashville talk radio was finally in my mailbox.  I was working through a forced period of rest, being medically disabled and facing a challenging task of first recuperating myself nutritionally and then convincing my employer to allow a return to work;…See More

Lee Smith, Dr.DIY replied to Julie Carr's discussion What should I charge for a 16 hour (two day) Leadership Training with a Co-Facilitator?
"If you charge them an added 18% for the late notice you'll raise the per-head from $180 to $212 which gets you over the $5000 threshold.  I think that's reasonable, but why not offer some organizational tools for the attendees? If…"

I was cleaning up for Labor Day weekend and found something that took me back to a lesson I learned in Nashville a decade ago...

Here's the story in 350 words:

Hi Dr. Smith!
Thanks for reaching out! Let's talk when you have time. My hope is to create an opportunity for Private label for practitioners with as few as 24 units per order. I have some manufacturing relationships that may allow for that size volume for private label.

Feel free to call me some time: 772.202.8216

Be well!

Congratulations of being the featured member this week, you always have such wonderful insight, and a real serving spirit in your responses...Way To Go!

Thanks for all you do, Please keep it up!

Thanks, Lee. I appreciate your insight. The group approval process is lead up by Rob Clinton. Among other things, they look at the activity of the groups and had deleted a bunch about 6-8 months ago. We want an active site, and if things are sitting dormant without activity, it's hard for new members to figure out where to plug in.

At 7:46am on August 21, 2012, Justin Lukasavige said…

Thanks for replying, Lee. And you're absolutely right. You've been great on this site, in fact one of our top people. If we only let our top people promote their stuff however, we become hypocrites. People begin to wonder why some people can promote their stuff and not others.

It might be worth exploring a new group where people can post links to their free stuff. When I think through that however, I don't think I'd join, just to get notified of free eBooks. That's my opinion and not that of the community, which is why we should perhaps explore it.

Would you join a group like that? And I'd like you to think of it in terms of a person NOT posting something. Because we'll have no shortage of people posting their resources. But will we have people honestly interested in being a member in order to download the next free eBook?

At the end of the day, we want the forums to be an active place where discussions are happening. We don't get that if people are only posting links to their downloads.

I'd love your feedback here, Lee. And thanks for understanding.

At 7:01am on August 21, 2012, Justin Lukasavige said…

Hey, Lee, thanks for posting on 48days.net. 
The forums are specifically a place to ask questions and get advice from folks and we ask that you stick to getting feedback and avoid promoting your stuff. Your book looks great, but if we encouraged everyone to do the same, the forums would be filled with links instead of great discussions.

A better way to promote your book would be to reach out directly to the friends you've already connected with here and let them know about your book.

To avoid being deleted in the future, please remember the forums are a place to ask honest questions and get guidance from your peers. If you have questions, let me know.
