    Hi Damien… yes, Brian really backed up his belief in delivering value, didn’t he?

    LOVE Brian Kurtz! My spirit totally resonates with his. And YOU, Kevin, are the perfect interviewer with all these experts. Your personality, knowledge and experience pulls gems out of them, and in turn they pull gems out of you.

    It would be worth my CopyChief membership if the only perc was being notified about these enlightening interviews. The fact that we also get soooo much more makes CopyChief the #1 bargain available for people who promote products and businesses.

    So many people (with myself at the top of the list) let great ideas just slip away by not converting the idea into action. Thanks for taking action and moving forward with your CopyChief idea. It is exactly what I have needed for many years, and it is getting better and better all the time.

      Bruce… wow, thanks for sharing that. People will think I paid you for this comment 🙂

      I’m privileged to head up this community of doers, and you’re exactly right about keeping ideas from slipping away being one of those unannounced benefits of membership. Learning must be immersive if we want it to stick.

      I”m sure Brian will appreciate your note, as well. The man is wealth of knowledge and fortunately for us, very generous with the goods.
