Hi Jonathan, luv, luv, luv, your blog...

HOWEVER..., I totally Disagree with this article. Self-help is dead?!?! Not true, and it never will be. Actually what you're doing/writing is exactly that. Although you're using an on-line format, as your platform, someone could very easily catergorize your work as self-help, and would find your books in the self-help section. Here's why: (quoted text from your site):

"Welcome to your private training ground for living on our own terms."

(not living on your own terms=broken)

“I started this blog to help others on their path.”

(not on any path=broken)

“I want to show you that you can follow your heart and be grounded.”

(not following your heart=broken)

These statements would imply that someone is broken in some area or another, in which there's nothing wrong with that. WE'RE ALL BROKEN IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER...lol...which is why I frequent sites like yours...to learn, be educated, and um....get help.:)

So, no, self-help i.mo. is not dead, nor will it ever be.

Hi Ethan, great post.

I am allowing myself to be put out in FRONT more, when it comes to my online business. I have always been a behind-the-scenes, back office, type of individual, - no attention, no spotlight, no camera photos, and no shine....was definitely ok with me, as I luvvved making things happen from behind the scenes.

(not a shy individual....just don't like a lot of attention)

But I am learning, especially, with blogging, that you have to put a face to your business...and that everything can't happen from sitting behind a computer (believe me...I tried). Over the past year and a half, I've really learned to get out and connect with people face to face, and show them my contributions to this world....as I've learned that everything can't be accomplished by emails.

Again....great post Ethan

and Jonathan....great blog overall
