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.
You work in medicine and I’m sure are more aware than most of how many Americans’ bodies have alignment issues. Whether due to injury or our modern sedentary lifestyle, muscles often get underused and thus weaken (especially in the back), leading to posture mis-alignment (my term, not necessarily a medical one) and/or joint stress that often worsens with age/use.
At our last annual seminar, we had a mobility specialist present on the most prevalent issues he sees in patients. His work is rooted in kinesiology, anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and pain science.
Most of the audience recognized at least some of those warning signs in their own bodies. For instance, I spend way too many hours in a hunched position over my laptop, which pushes my head forward, dramatically increasing the downward force on my neck and creating an overuse/underuse imbalance with my upper and mid-back muscles.
The presentation was extremely well-received. I’ve been meaning to post a video from it on the site for a while now, and your comment is a reminder that I should do that soon. I’ll try to get it posted it this week or early next.
I get the reaction to the ticker price, jgritter.
As mentioned, this is not going to be for most pocketbooks. And I absolutely understand (and support!) those who would prefer to use that kind of money to build resilience in other forms of capital.
The challenge here is the cost of personalized attention from knowledgeable health experts. The double-digit 1-on-1 dedicated hours with quality professionals simply add up and far outweigh the cost of the venue.
Yes, we can find a cheaper hotel to do this at. It will knock a few hundred dollars of the total price. But from what we’re hearing so far, if folks are going to pay the cost for the professional hours involved, they want to stay somewhere nice.
If we can find a way to offer the type of experience folks want for materially less money, we’ll do it (remember, we’re pricing this at cost right now — PP isn’t making money in this model). But the concept as currently described is the best balance we’ve been able to find so far between price and the personalized experience folks are asking for.
