I need your advice (please)

[NOTE: In case you’re wondering, this post is a followup to this]

Ok… so I’ve received a lot of emails from readers upset with me about that cliffhanger in my previous post.

Sorry about that…

Anyway, I’ve been feeling reluctant to talk about something. But it’s *long overdue* so here it goes…

As some of you may know, this whole Infusioncast thing has got way out of control (in the best possible way).

When I first started Infusioncast over 12 months ago… I never in a million years thought I would have the opportunity to have they impact I’ve had.

And I’ve been deeply touched — by all the beautiful emails, comments, letters, gifts and hugs you’ve given me over the past year (from all over the world).

On one touching occasion, an individual sent me a video from Romania telling me how much the information on Infusioncast has helped them build their business.

So here is what I have been holding out on for the past year…

I’ve been:

+ Nicely asked
+ Strongly encouraged
+ Begged
+ Pleaded with…

To share the accumulation of what I have learned over the last few years (and to share and teach the art and science of Infusionsoft using my techniques).

I’ll admit it! I’ve resisted teaching this stuff.

I made the usual mundane excuses like “I don’t have enough time” and “I’m too busy with my own codeBOX to actually teach this to others.”

And I’m embarrassed to admit that, as codeBOX has grown bigger and bigger (and blessed my family more and more) . . .

… I wondered if sharing my Infusionsoft knowledge techniques with others would actually HURT codeBOX and result in fewer clients. I also wondered if I was even capable of teaching everything I’d learned in over the past few years of doing this. (Day in and day out, now, I’m realizing just how small this kind of thinking was).

Oh… And I’m also a bit of a perfectionist.

Ok “a bit” is a understatement… I’m a FULL BLOWN perfectionist.

And because I’ve given up all hope of fixing this, I realized that I simply cannot go half-way with this. As far as I am concerned – it’s **all the way** or not at all.

How I’m Trying to Learn From The Past

Before I started Infusioncast, people kept saying “Joshua you MUST do a podcast” and I thought “But every business is different, every business unique, how will I address all the systems and situations?”

But I DID go on to start Infusioncast. And it ended up having an impact that I’m just now coming to terms with.

It would have been small-minded of me to NOT start Infusioncast. And I’m beginning to think that not sharing what I know about managing and maximizing Infusionsoft (out of fear that it will impact my own business) is just as small minded.

So I’m Seriously Considering Doing This

Despite my fears, hesitancies, and perfectionism, I am seriously considering pulling back the curtain and showing you just about everything I know about Infusionsoft and how I run my business.

And sharing stuff I’ve never publicly shared with ANYONE about implementing Infusionsoft.
(I would have LOVED to have had this training when I was just getting started with Infusionsoft).

If I Do This, It Will Be A LOT Of Work

I’m excited about sharing stuff with you, but I’ve been around long enough to know that my small projects quickly get out of hand and turn into big ones

So I only want to do this if there’s enough interest.

So I want to know . . .

+ What do you think?
+ Should I do this?
+ Would you be interested?

Your feedback and thoughts are absolutely the fuel that keeps me going.

And I don’t want to even think about doing this unless there’s enough potential interest.

Anyway, if you have a second, please leave a comment below and let me know what you think.

It would mean a lot to me, and I’ll do my best to respond to each and every comment.

All the best,
Joshua

    I would be interested! My experience with codebox was nothing less than professional and I was very pleased with not just the process of building our API, but the follow up and the continued communication and service.

    Thank you!

    Yes. You know so much about this and you’re well connected in our community. You’re a keystone Joshua.

    I’ve just today discovered Infusioncast. Can I add my voice to the chorus calling for you to go ahead. I’ll check out CodeBox (which I hadn’t heard of, until reading this post), but to be honest, I’m a one-person bootstrapping startup and your YouTube channel is a breath of fresh air to help me get some benefit from my investment in Infusionsoft. So far, it has been a money sink. If you add value to my business, you’ll be the person to come to when I need help in the future *and can afford to pay.*
    What goes around comes around in the best possible way. I completely understand your reluctance to give stuff away free. I’m a writer, coaching stay-at-home parents in earning income online through writing. I’ve been giving away advice for years, it’s time to monetise what I do. I’m SO glad I stumbled across your YouTube channel!
