That`s a hellava post, man! Now that`s the "Brand Jeff" I`m glad to see. We can all be jerks from time to time - I plead quilty for sure. But respectful we should all be - as you say, we`re doing something only a minority ever do. We`re in this together to help each other and give constructive criticism and have fun and generally share with other members.
Thanks for taking the time to post this heartfelt message.
Have a great tomorrow!
The term is "lovecat" but "love monkey" works
I value the SUN community as well. I am just starting down this scary road, and it is SOOOO nice to be connected to people like me, and to see people who are at such different places with their businesses. It`s good to hear from those who have "made it" and those who are still dreaming about this life, and those somewhere along the way. The different perspectives are priceless/. I get so much motivation from reading about everyone`s successes and struggles.
I appreciate your comments. I guess I haven`t read enough of your posts to know if you`ve been a jerk or not But, I do think it is important that when people ask for help, crticism, advice, etc. that we can all provide our thoughts, answers, etc. even if the answers aren`t always what the poster wants to read. It`s hard to be brutally honest sometimes, especially in a community such as this, where everyone is cheering each other on. This is a great place, and I`m glad I`ve joined.
Love the self cleasing! Wow that`s a massive step toward
change and growth.

I`m pretty new here - but I just want to throw my two cents worth in on this.
I can`t even fathom what it would be like to have to go to an office and work for someone else. I`m the best boss I`ve ever had.
But the truth is that there are enough nattering nabobs of negativity in the world who pull us down and say thing like, "What kind of crazy business thing do you think you`re getting into now????" Hey, we sure as heck don`t need that from our peers and the people we`re looking to for support and great ideas.
You don`t know me yet - but I`m known for being pretty straightforward. So I understand the need to not waste words. We`re all busy. On the other hand it`s good to know that others appreciate the positive contributions we make. (Not here - I`m brand new here. But I`ve been on ryze for 3.5 years.)
Yours in success and joy,

I too can be a bit short and blunt with those that can`t see what is so obvious to me. Even when I`m not upset about things, some take my matter of fact tone to be one of disaproval when it is not (one of the reasons I like email for communicating with people). When I become frustrated... I laugh to myself and remember, half the population has an IQ below 100 and that`s only 21 points away from retarded. It makes me a little more patient with others.
As entrepreneurs, we are not the norm, nor are we guaranteed financial success. So.... enjoy the ride, win or lose, true success is found in the journey, for in the end it`s all we really have.
