    Hey guys,

    This could fit into a number of forum sections, but as it's also a slight self promotion (!!) I thought The Lounge would be most appropriate.

    I recently did an interview on a popular industry blog, and thought those of you getting started might want some inspiration/learn a few things.

    I'm by no means the most successful member on BHW, but BHW (from what I have learned over the years) helped me build my business from nothing to a stable 6 figures in a few years. I discuss in detail how I built my company.

    Anyway, you can listen to it here: http://www.entrepreneurs-journey.com/11850/thomas-smale/

    I always like to hear feedback (good/bad) so let me know what you think or drop by with a comment on the blog :)

    Thanks!

    Hey Thomas,I want to say something...when I joined BHW,I was like every common noob who joins BHW and wants to see $$s the very next day. I was over-smart,arrogant and used to get into flaming discussions way too often...I just used to read...read...read...and never took action. Oh and not to mention that I was a bit rude as well. Then one day I received my 1st negative rep...and that was given by you..and comment was "learn some manners". 3 simple words and it changed a lot in me..I was furious at that time exchanged a few words with you as well...BigBuddy came into the conversation then. What I followed after that was your personality...the way to interact..no BS talking...always business oriented ...calm and still dominating.Now I don't talk BS..don't get into flaming convos..very polite to others...etc etc. I want to say a big THANK YOU that you coached me without even knowing! Thanks for being an inspiration and making me whatever I am in IM right now. I'm sure my +9rep won't affect your rep bar much but still...its coming from my side.

    With warm regards
    Jeevs


    p.s-I'm not drunk! ;) and please avoid my English!

    Good to hear you made some money from that method. It still works today.

    Glad you enjoyed the interview, too. If I can do it, anyone can!

    Listened to the first 1-2 minutes and I knew I had to listen to the rest.

    Will be listening to the whole thing in a few hours, thanks for sharing this here Thomas.

    BHW definitely helped me get started and lots of people around here have helped keep me motivated. Running your own business is a real grind so it's great to stick together!
