Just a quick note to confirm Chris is alive and well.
He’s focused on dealing with a number of matters right now, including the ones mentioned above. That said, we will have a new article coming from him in the next day or so.
As Will surmises, I’m working double (more like triple) duty right now to keep the quality content coming, introduce more expert voices, AND expand the benefits and services Peak Prosperity offers to this community.
More coming on all the above soon.
But in just the next 24 hours, I’ve first got to finish editing our latest (and excellent) Off The Cuff discussion with Richard Heinberg, host our ‘Ask the Expert’ webinar on Home Energy with Bruce Sullivan, interview Luke Gromen for our weekly Money & Markets update, go on camera to discuss PMs with Mike Maloney, review an upgrade to our Comments platform with our IT firm, and set up ticket sales for the June PP event at Joel Salatin’s Polyface Farm.
A lot on the plate right now…
Yes, the original post is spam….but it has appeared to trigger a sharing among folks of their fond memories of special beaches.
So I guess we’ll let this stand for now.
BTW, IMO fewer beaches are more beautiful than Hanalei Bay on Kauai’s north shore
When I add up the three ‘with children’ columns in Chart 5 I get 95, 99 and 98 which are all <100. They don’t add up to 100 due to the % who didn’t provide an answer to the question.
As for the Chart 6 bar totals, I get 101, 99, 100, and 100. The first two are slightly off due to rounding. No, folks had to pick one answer for this question.
PP.com had 397k unique visitors in April. 4,500 people answered this survey.
Azurite did include the N in the title slide to the presentation we took these images from:
N = 4,500
- US respondents: 3,500
- Non-US respondents: 1,000
All respondents were sourced from the PeakProsperity.com website.
I’ve added some questions in the original post above that would be great to hear your feedback on.
Or, if they spark other feedback you may have on the topic, share that instead!
False alarm, folks — though we very much appreciate your eagle eye and your concern for our work potentially getting censored.
Looks like this video wasn’t set to “public” (we’ve now fixed that).
Not sure how it happened, but it looks like the goof was on our end. We’re taking steps to make sure that doesn’t get repeated.
The video is now fully public and published atop PP.com.
Thanks again for your concern.
Yep. Here’s the page with all the details on this year’s seminar.
Do you all recommend jumping in with both feet and trying to go to the May 1-3 conference? Or take it slower?
Well, I’d recommend it. But since it’s my own conference, I’m a pretty biased source 🙂
If anyone reading this has attended one of our past seminars with a spouse/partner, I’d appreciate you weighing in with your experience, to give Kevin a fairer picture.
But, Kevin, I will say that from my personal observation across a decade of these seminars, *most of the time* it’s a very successful catalyst for bridging the divide that many couples have around this material.
That doesn’t necessarily mean your wife will enthusiastically leap on the PP train and start sharing the Crash Course with all her friends when you get home.
But hopefully she will:
- understand much better why this material is important to YOU and respect that, and
- realize that PP isn’t a doomsday prepper cult, and instead is full of wonderfully intelligent people with a desire to do good in the world.
The latter tends to be the more common surprise factor for ‘reluctant’ partners who come with reticence. They’re not expecting to enjoy themselves so much and be so inspired.
That said, I’ve seen one or two times when a partner tapped out early on. I can’t promise that won’t happen in your case; but given the little you’ve shared about your wife above, I don’t get the sense there’s a big danger of that.
Hope we see you in May!
Yes, Paul beat me to the punch here.
Kevin: the first thing to know is that YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Chris, I and the majority of PP.com readers have all experienced the challenge of trying to see eye-to-eye on ‘The Three Es’ with our spouse/partner.
And while there’s no magic formula, we do have some resources that will definitely help.
- Dealing With A Reluctant Partner, which Paul has already shared
- How To Engage Others
- How To Have Impossible Conversations (podcast)
- How To Manage Conflict & Build Relationships That Last
I like that you used the adverb “gently”. Keep that as your north star in this process and your odds for success will increase 🙂
I’m glad to hear that, Will.
Especially as I (and, I’m guessing, most folks here) am often also at a loss on what to say in such sad situations.
I’m hoping that the expressions of care & concern here from folks like you are some solace to Michael, that his life matters to us and that he’s got PP supporters in his corner from all over the world.
