    Hi Guys,

    Would any of you be interested in an experiment? I'm sure many of you are familiar with Tim Ferriss, author of 4 Hour Work Week etc. He has a list of questions that he suggests asking someone who is knowledgeable in the area that you want to learn. I am astounded at how much knowledge is on here, and I'd be curious to see the answers to Tim's questions with regard to IM/SEO and/or other ways of banking from the internet. Not all of these questions might make sense in this context, so feel free to pick and choose, but I'd be fascinated to hear any answers:

    Who at BHW (or elsewhere) is good at IM/SEO despite being poorly set up for it? Who is good that "shouldn't" be?

    Who is most unorthodox? Why?

    What makes you and/or other successful BHWers different?

    How did you learn/who did you learn from?


    Have you taught others? Have they replicated your results?

    What are the biggest mistakes and myths in this business? What are the biggest wastes if time?

    What are most useful books and resources on the subject (Inc. BHW threads)?

    If people had to teach themselves, what resources should they use besides books?


    If you were to train someone in 4 weeks to make $100 a day using IM/SEO what would the training look like? What if they had 8 weeks?

    One thing you need to understand is positioning. If you email Tim Ferriss, will he answer the questions? Not really, he is a busy guy. If you position yourself as part of his business though, he will.

    So, before asking questions to others, the first one to ask is - how do I help THEM promote their business?
