“If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together” is a proverb that leaves out something very important. Who is contained in that “together”?
For years now, I’ve been aware of certain circles, certain groups of people who are connected in the online business space, especially in the writing and publishing space. The same names come up again and again. You know how it is. And I’ve wanted to be part of those circles, to have a place at those tables, and have worked my way toward that, building my own table along the way. From time to time, one of the big names is shown to be sullied. One big leader was revealed to be a bully, and some of his advice is actually quite harmful. Another turned out to be an affiliate for an entity known for its predatory practices—making money from a vampire—a sellout with an integrity issue. Every time that happens, it’s disappointing.

If you believe that good people deserve to thrive, you should get it right now, while it’s just 99¢! Just click this image and go!
