Our first Meetup of the ?ALPHA'S? was very promising. We had at least 2 third generation EXJW's and several who have been out for over twenty years or more. Tom came up from Rochester again to relate how he is excelling and enjoying his experience in writing. Tom is one of those people who has the vision to re-jump start his life. He has his dreams, and like all those who become successful, he is willing to take risks. He has a book of short stories coming out and a plan to give seminars on how to write. The latter would be for anyone who wanted to write a cookbook or the great American novel. This methodology has been used successfully in teaching people how to navigate in the markets, so he has some good potential here.
Tom's enthusiasm and hopefulness really hit me on many levels and reinforced in me that this should be a big part of what this group should be about. That is, that can we can follow our dreams, be successful, make money and feel great about it.
We can accomplish these things, by networking, sharing Ideas, and encouragement. Some body really smart once told me. ?Nothing succeeds like success, and you will never get lucky, if you never try.?
I attended a book signing a few years back at the mega mall for one of my cousins who was promoting a children's book. Maybe we can have a promotional book signing at the meet up when he is ready. I told Tom I want an autographed copy of his book when it comes out.
Thanks all it was a good time.
