Breakthrough237Hi All,

I’ve joined the IBM Academy and worked through the exercises in the Academy 101.

I’m Writing to share my first success and say thank you,

I’m going to start an educational program, seminar series, on Foreign Exchange Trading. I gave my first free intro seminar yesterday evening at the CASS Business School, to 80 people, and the feedback was phenomenal.

I’m so pumped, now, that I know I have a product and can develop a brand.

I wanted to say thank you to Jeremy and Jason for setting this course up and for for making me think about what I really want out of life.

I also wanted to let everybody in the group know, that it’s true! If you follow your passion, you can really connect to people.

It’s all about maintaining the momentum now, and grabbing every opportunity.

All the best,

  2. hey guys long time listener here and member of the original academy. Whoa. just wanted to say thanks for the last two episodes. they really helped me get past some sticking points I’ve been going through.

    I’ve had my site up for some time now and making money through affiliate commissions but wanted to step things up with my own product. for some reason after I created the product and sent it out to friends to review I started feeling lots of anxiety and self-doubt. ironic since a large part of my product deals with moving through fear to get to confidence.

    Anyway your past couple of episodes helped get me through it and push forward. my launch schedule is back on track! Guess sometimes you just need an outside perspective. thanks again guys!

    • Congrats on moving past it. That fear and self-doubt are challenges most people don’t get past, so nice job! Good luck with your launch!
