@jzbreeland I lied to you. One more.
@awesomewash1 this is the last thing I’ll say (but I won’t stop posting pictures of my childhood icons who can express my emotions faster and funnier than I can.)
I came to this forum with a year+ experience. It transformed my business quite honestly. I had a couple run ins with the old timers until I realized these guys had been doing this for 10+ or even 20+ years and running high 6- and 7- figure businesses.
I did one of the few grown up things I’ve ever done. I decided that my answers weren’t the only good ones and made friends with these folks, I did that by trying to be helpful, but when I had a question I shut up and listen. If I didn’t get it I asked more questions. Then I shut up and listen.
Now, I’ve got a trailer I’ve built as close to @Racer 's trailer as possible. I’ve tried to copy as many of these folks as possible. @Innocentbystander and I text or chat a couple times a week and all my hoses lead with the male end, I sent $2000 across country for a machine to a relative stranger based on IBS vouching for him. @Greg755 gave me invaluable advice for a YouTube strategy that gets his website viewed more and helped me through it over the phone for a half hour. The list goes on.
When I started asking for advice and just doing it instead of questioning it my business exploded.
@Alex_Lacey was the first person I read about using a downsized injector for longer pressure hose if I remember correctly. What do you know? I’ve been doing that since the day after I read it and it works! Maybe that was @tireshark… I like you both whoever it was. Lol
I could give you a list of another 20 folks on the forum who have no problem helping people in the business succeed. But guess what, there’s another 20 folks just lurking because they don’t waste time giving goofballs advice they are just gonna dump on and throw a “well my 20 million dollar mentor who does X,Y, and Z does this.” at them.
No one cares. Not one tiny bit. If those are the mentors you’re convinced will help you grow your business then stop wasting your time here.
@FATJOE dropped a bomb on us the other day about a places we can find udor pumps for half of what other places are charging. I’d like to hear more from him. @gbattle has dropped some knowledge in other posts and I’d like to hear more from him. @Greg755 has been MIA for awhile and he’s on the list of people I liked reading their responses as well. That list goes on and on. These guys know what the heck they’re talking about.
I don’t want to speak for them, but I wonder how many guys lurk and don’t answer much any more because of trolls such as yourself. I’m curious how much actual, helpful knowledge has left the forum on account of not wanting to deal with chuckleheads. That’s kinda heartbreaking actually.
So my only advice to you (which you’ll probably tell me you’re not going to do because of some 20 million something something mentor blah) is to pump the brakes, try some of this stuff, use the search function, don’t get in forum battles (that mess is for Facebook), stop chasing folks off because you may find yourself here all alone sooner rather than later, and pick which mentors you’re going to use because we already know you’re not going to use any of our advice.
Best of luck in your business. (I don’t care about phone lines or your marketing prowess. Other people here know the same stuff and can share it without making themselves look like a total goon.)
@Buzzlightyear dolphins and stuff.
