Why I Sweated It Out Listening to a Bearded British Man…

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty hot (and sweaty and not-so-nice). That locks down the meaning of the first part of the above title. On to part 2…

Let’s get to it.

If you’ve been reading my posts for any length of time over the past couple months (thank you!), you probably noticed me talking about a business swap I was part of inside a Facebook group.

The owner of that Facebook group talked a little bit about the swap in a video I watched yesterday, because apparently people who had the guts to contribute an idea are going to get a doc with all the ideas from everyone else in it, too, free (that part I knew).

And double apparently, he plans to sell this document to curious others who are interested in the ideas, but didn’t contribute. That part made me feel pretty awesome–because it’s now taken on a “premium” air that it didn’t have, and I wasn’t aware of it.

The other part I wanted to listen to (and why I listened all the way to the end), is that he ran another contest in his group to get ideas for his consulting biz (he’s branching out locally in his area in Britain).

Anyway, in return for generating an idea he planned to use, he would give 20% of the profits to the one who came up with that idea.

He saved that unveiling to the end, which is mostly the reason why I listened.

He’s already a great innovator, but it was good for me personally to get on out there and just try something.

Did I win? No–but then again, maybe I did on some level.

Until next time,
