I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Hisbel.

Hi Kyle,
Thank you so much, it is nice to know that you are there shall I need help.
For the moment I am just getting on with things, and as the training materials are very detailed I have been able to move on without much trouble. But I know that help is at hand shall I need it, and I am sure I am bound to get stuck at some point! At the end of the day I am just human ;-)

Unfortunately, although I was still on my first 7 days at WA and I was sent an invitation to watch a training video via email, the title looked very intetesting and did have good reviews. I went to watch it, but I was unable to. It is a shame because being able to see the actual quality of the content would have been a better encouragement to become Premium. But instead of allowing me to see it, I was redirected to the 'becoming a Premium member' talk. Very dissapointed.
Dear magistudios, I am really sorry I was unable to give a comment on your video which could have been awesome. All the best, Hisbel

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle,
I have decided that my niche will be figure ice skating parents. From my own experience I know that when you take your child to learn to skate for the first time, a completely new world, and a very strange one as well, is presented to you. If you are a parent wanting to give your child the best support you can, you will find yourself with a list of questions and no necessarily many answers. There is when I intend to step in. What do you think? I have been a skating mum for a good 15+ years, and love ice skating. So at least I will have something to talk about for a long time. My daughter is also a coach, so I can pick up her brain if there is anything new that I do not understand, and it is an ever developing sport, so lots to learn and hopefully things to sell!
Cheers
Hisbel

Dear Kyle,
Why am I beeing sent emails with links to content that I am only allowed to watch if I convert to Premium? Don't I supposed to be able to have access to that facility during my first 7 days? If that is not the case, why email the link in the first place? It is really annoying, and it sets all the warning lights of hard selling to on position. I know you say that you do not intend to hard sell premium, but unfortunately that is the impression it gives. In my opinion, it would be a much better business strategy if those specific contents that you email are available so that we can actually experience (rather than being told) what we are missing by not upgrading. There is a say that 'you do not miss what you never had'. I do hope you understand my frustration and actually take the positive comment from my experience of it.
Do not get me wrong, I do believe you have in here a great system and a wonderful community. I do intend to eventually upgrade to Premium, but on my own time, once I have proof that the system does actually works for me specifically, and that the investment has a clear justification. I do hope you are not angry at me for this post, unfortunately I have the bad habit of wearing my heart on my sleeves and speak my mind, specially when I see that something good can be even better.
All the best
Hisbel

I see you are now premium, congrats Hisbel. This will not be an issue moving forward. If you are following someone and they post something that is Premium only, that would be why you are sent in the direction of these links.

I do thank you for your feedback and I really do look forward to working with you moving forward. :)

Work at your own pace, this is definitely not a race and as you move through the training you are going to see some really good progress. I always say, as long as you are moving forward you are moving in the right direction. :)

As you start to see progress and results, you will naturally dedicate more time to your business, but I can absolutely assure you that with some hard work and dedication here, you are going to see results.

If you need anything going forward, let me know.
