I too, would hope to see some people step-up to the plate and offer their advice. I just want them to do it without saying, "For only $39.95 a month, you can get the exact plan I'm using to make a kajillion dollars a year!"
What we need, are more people exactly like you!
Thanks Warren. I don't have a problem at all with someone who does that "for only $39.95 a month" as long as they are honest about it. If someone really can say that $39 does this and that and this is what I did and these are my results, MORE POWER TO THEM. The issue probably boils down to that age old training of "fake it till you make it" thing.
YOU already know and can be considered a "go to" person if you have learned ONE thing. If you know, for example, how to teach someone how to create a subdomain on GoDaddy - share it, write about it, teach others how to do it but don't try and put yourself out there as a leader because you can copy and paste from someone else's website or retype something from a book.
Let people see you, who you are, where you are in your journey. As long as you are learning and growing there will always be people who don't know, who aren't where you are, who will look up to you, who will admire you, who will want to follow you. But don't fake it. Look at me, look at how much I know (when it actuality you've never made more than 10 bucks a month with all your efforts), look at what a great leader I am.
I get very excited when I see people growing on BN, people who don't know it all and admit it, people who ask questions, seek advice, question that advice (not from arrogance but from a sincere desire to do what actual works), and then implement that advice. People who understand they are on a learning curve and what they believe today is not what they are going to believe tomorrow.
But it boils down to lots of people who are much higher up the ladder than you or I, need to be here, teaching us, every day, so we can continually grow. People who've walked the walk and can talk the talk. People who've done more than read a book. And as Jason says, it's coming ! I can't wait.
