I don't about other people but I like to express my opinions and stand up for what I believe. Sometimes when I get the feeling that I shouldn't say something because it might get me in trouble or something, I do it anyway. For me fear, shame or disagreement are always signs that you're doing or saying something worthwhile.

@MimiMeredith hahaha I think everyone has one of these stories about Kirby salesman, at least you don't have a bad experience. It's sad that the company is ran by people that are so focused on the Making money part, if they focused more on the helping and showing people how great the product is, I'm sure more people would buy. Again, the persuasion tactics of kirby are wrong.

@MimiMeredith I think that's so cool, I sold kirby vacuums door to door about 3 years ago, for close to 3 years actually, I loved it at first, but the more I started to understand the sneaky tactics and false promises they made to us, and read a ton of books about customer service and "it's all about the customer" I stopped. Don't get me wrong the money was great, except when 2008 came (shitty economy and bad credit), but I realized I never really wanted to make a lot of money (which is all they focused on) I wanted to help a lot of people.

I wish you luck, I almost went to sell cars after I left kirby, but something told not to do it. I even got the job but I decided to call the guy and tell him, thanks but I have to pass.

Okay mimi this is like a long comment, bye thanks for sharing I'm excited to see what's new in thegoodnessgrows.com

Good stuff Ken, hey someone took your wallet...hahaahaha It's true, I think the best example is the "United Breaks Guitars" video that really was big and if they would've just listened to their customer, the headache and losses they would've saved.

I guess my girlfriend showed me his videos two years ago, but I don't remember. Nick is killer, amazing, and talented. I think he's definitely remarkable and he sounds like a nice guy, all this will probably take him very far.

Excellent interview, it's really cool to see how he did it.

Seems like a simple mission but it's easier said than done. I got to say that it's very important to do your market research. I'm a big fan of both tools, actually I use them both to stay informed of any trends in the market.

Anything with DMS I like specially marketing lessons from the grateful dead. I read rework and I think it's an awesome book for entrepreneurs, although I can't quite remember much about social media there.

I just got content rules havent read it yet but I hear it was okay. I just like reading anyway I'll comment about it later.

Great people you have there though. I've read their stuff and they're all great people. In particular Brian Solis, he's the man too when it comes to engaging.

I like John Chow he's one of the first people I was reading about blogging in the beginning. He really helped me get better when I read his ebooks and read his blog.

One thing I would say is don't give up. It took me a while too to figure things out and say, OH OK! I got this...it will hit you one day and it will be much easier.
