So let’s talk about collective intelligence…
As all of you who are community members know, this is something SMARTY has been touting from the beginning. IE, “the more you know, the more we all know, so let’s talk about it” kind of thing.
If this is true, then I have a question for you (one that keeps being asked of me.) Why wouldn’t I offer myself, as well as other experts in the network who have something to give, into an online group setting where individuals pay some reasonable monthly fee to have a twice a month virtual get-down on small business insights, marketing mastery, communications clarity, selling strategies – why wouldn’t I? Maybe I would. Everyone else seems to offer this model. Maybe you could tell me if you would like this – at say $200/month – two Mondays of every month – key strategies, with time for one-on-one work where needed?
Here’s my resistance (I want to be convinced otherwise, by the way)…it just feels like everyone does “group coaching” and when everyone is doing something, my first reaction is to invent and imagine something better. Do you ever feel that way? We all have our virtual models and ways of capturing customers in a way that front loads costs but rewards itself in numbers, but I can’t help this reaction – that it just feels so formulaic. There’s something unoriginal in it. But am I thinking too hard? Am I aiming too high? Maybe it’s possible to offer something that might SEEM like the average, but really be far above it?
Let me hear from you – reply to this if you have a thought – because I want (and need) to believe!
