Invest in Yourself

Today’s issue of The Writer’s Life was inspired by an email I received from a member about an upcoming Bootcamp …

Mike wanted to know if anyone had ever wanted their money back (not a single person), if anyone had ever complained about the event (no), and if people did make money after the event (yes — people like Jon Stoltzfus, Joshua Boswell, Mindy McHorse, Jen Adams, Roy Furr, Les Worley, and Julie Hassett, to name a few from a LONG list … ).

But it was the end of Mike’s email that made me decide to write the below essay …

“I'm interested in what I'd achieve *after* the event is over, given that I'm bright and highly motivated, and well educated to boot. I don't have the money for it, unless I am absolutely sure I can make money afterward. It's an act of faith I might undertake. Can you give me enough info to help me make a good decision?”

You may have the same question — whether it be about our upcoming Bootcamp, enrollment in our Infinity Program, or some other training you’re considering investing in.

But just like with Mike, I can’t tell you if it’s the right decision for you …

I explain why in my article, Making the “Right” Decision About What Training to Invest In.

And then I give you a way to evaluate any investment you may be considering, so you can make the right decision for yourself.

  1. Many failures success because they work under pressure to relief their weakness which later become their promoted due to the cause of reward. To failure was about less commitment.
