I challenge anyone to find another forum that is composed of such mature, generous individuals. Those who filled in the blanks chose powerful words - "business," "action," "process," "commitment" - that displayed a mindset that most never reach.
If that sounds patronizing, it's not meant that way. While we're all proud at how SBI! helps to form your big-picture thinking of doing business online, we cannot take credit..
You, after all, have to be OPEN to the message. And as Franco noted, you ignore that message (and the process) at your own risk. Ultimately, though, even if you skip major steps the first time around, it takes a special person to say, "I made a mistake"...
Re-booting takes a special kind of persistence. It requires a re-read. As long as you are open to the message, you can read it as critically as you like. As you proceed, you come to understand that the logic behind the SBI! process is as solid as it gets.
And THAT confidence, coupled with the BUSINESS mindset, creates the foundation for a successful effort. Not ALL succeed, of course. It's possible to make mistakes. Those who learn from them will reach their goals on a subsequent effort.
Thanks very much for the inspiration, motivation and honor of working with you!
To a 2018 that OVERdelivers to you when you do the same for your visitors,
P.S. I'd love to answer each reply, as I have often done in the past. For the next couple of months, I need to keep my hours down. But please know that I read all answers carefully and was moved, and learned, from them all. Thanks, too, for your good wishes.
