Exclusive Training Offered on WA

Last Update: January 10, 2018

I realize this may not be a particularly popular post and I risk losing some followers. This is less of a rant and more of a curiosity and is not intended to offend anyone. I hope everyone takes it in the spirit it is meant.

Recently, you may have seen on the Activity section where a member announced the formation of small group with the goal of helping the small group succeed with their businesses.

My aim of this post is not to pick on the person who initiated the group or any members who joined. This practice does not appear to be against the rules and members can form whatever associations they like.

However, here are my curiosities with it:

1. What is it that the leader of the group is teaching that isn't being taught at WA? My understanding is the training at WA is supposed to give us everything we need to run successful online businesses.

2. If there is a deficiency in the WA training, it seems that is something that should be addressed.

3. To me, many others would benefit if these techniques were offered as a set of training modules, available for the entire community to benefit, not just to a select few. This has the further benefit that the teaching member will receive compensation.

4. It appears the concept exploded in popularity. Due to this, maybe it is something that should be added as part of the membership, i.e., formation of sub-groups to get members to succeed quicker.

I want to state that I think the world of this community and have the utmost respect for Kyle, Carson and all the members. Again, I share this with the hope of it helping us develop rather than it be seen as a complain or criticism.

Best Regards,

Jim

Update: The person who created the subgroup has posted that the training will become available to all members. I wrote this post before seeing that update.

Hi Jim,

I found it a noble initiative and a pitty only 5 could attend.

Given the diversity of backgrounds, experience and academics here... it becomes a great meltpot. There should be more sharing on that level.... MORE !..

It will make us all better

To a great 2018

Hey Bellon, your statement, "...and a pitty (sic) only 5 could attend," is exactly the point of my post.
Best Regards,
Jim

My view on it is this:

A student may be attending an excellent school, with fantastic teachers and a very well-prepared course, but still be having some difficulty.

That student may, of course, approach the teacher, but if multiple students do so, all with different schedules and availability, that puts a great deal of pressure on the teacher.

Likewise, they may certainly go to the school library, but sometimes having all the information they need laid out in front of them still doesn't help if they are unsure of how to interpret it, or have a basic misunderstanding of it.

Enter the after school tutor.

The tutor uses the same textbook from the school and the same lessons, but their individual attention and their own unique way of explaining things may "click" with the student.

That takes nothing away from the excellence of the school; it simply provides additional support to the student.

Hey Craig, understood. But, following your analogy, the tutor is using the school's resources at the expense of the taxpayers to help a select few, no?

I can sort of see your point, but I wouldn't really think so...
When I had a tutor, it was someone who came to my house and helped me get a better grasp on the materials, using basically a pencil and paper (mine) and the textbook that I, and every student, already had.

No extra fees. The tutor didn't even accept payment.

It's moot at this point as the person is making available to everyone.

You cant generate ripples to make transformational waves without encountering inertia Jim. It's a human condition! There's going to be a lot of cross chatter on Bo's great initiative!

The original idea was one of a mentorship JIm, which on the face of it is quite a nice idea, but it seems that Bo was inundated with members wanting his advice and it grew almost out of all proportion. We have to great mentors here in Kyle and Carson but with 800,000 or so members it would be impossible to be able to mentor each and everyone.
I'm not involved with the group but what I can gather it is more a case of structure and tactics than actual teachings.
Apparently, the situation has been resolved so that all members can be privvy to the gatherings.

Hey Gordon, I just saw the update after I wrote the post. But, it is interesting the amount of fervor it caused and perhaps mentoring subgroups should become a more formalized offering at WA.

I agree Jim I think we could all do with a mentor at some point

Last I heard, Bo was opening the training to all. But I would follow the regular training and treat the other group as additional training.

The point is though, what is that additional training and if it is so good, shouldn't it become part of the regular training?
