I am starting a group for the Upper Midwest area of the USA, but encourage all to consider looking into joining this group. At this point, I am unclear whether there is all that much advantage to being roughly within the same timezone, so lets play that by ear.
The group size will be limited to an absolute maximum of 6. This in on the learned advise of one of our primary mentors, Caro.
Who am I?
My name is Tom, and I live in Middleton, Wisconsin, USA. I am a 30+ year veteran of the IT field and have this computer and web stuff pretty well figured out. I made a career designing, supporting, training, programming, and well, if there's an IT hat to be worn, I've likely had it on at some point. I also hold a degree in Business Management.
For reasons that aren't really all that important, but you may discover over time, I am currently self employed and own and operate one of the internet's most awesome radio stations. The internet radio monetization model, however, is quite brutal and despite being well loved, my station is not pulling its weight.
As an alternative, and as a means of remaining self employed, I began looking into internet marketing a few years back. I've been hyped 16 ways to Sunday and spent a lot of U$D realizing the hype of it all. Then I found the 30 Day Challenge. I devoured the modules in about half the time expected just about a month ago, and halfway through learned about the newly re-furbished Challenge for 2010. I have spent the last few weeks clearing the boards and preparing for this round. The 30DC materials convinced me that Ed, Caro, Nez, Guru Bob, along with everyone they will introduce you to are, in fact, the real deal!
I look forward to learning as much from everyone else as much as I look forward to being a potential resource for this group.
Please contact me here in this thread or by PM to express your interest in joining this group. I hope to have our first Skype conference as soon as a we have the numbers we need.
Happy 4th of July Weekend to those in the USA celebrating our independence, and best wishes everyone around the globe.
