By having the competition priced at his level, the quality of work shows that much more value.

Two sides to every coin... Just throwing another opinion in the mix.

If you prefer increased personal attention, the one on one Mastery Session features an entire day with Jesh, training in Experiential Technique one on one and designing a custom strategy for smoothly integrating Beloved information technology into your business plan. Regularly $20,000, this session includes everything in options A & B above. A deposit of $4500 is due upon booking, the balance of $12,000 is due 10 days before the session is scheduled.

•Payment Option 1: Choose to make a deposit of $4,500 of a total $16,500 (save $4797)

LOL I see you knew who I was talking about when I said Zack Arias blasted someone on Twitter the other night. Only $20K!

I listened to about an hour of his pod cast on the "Beloved" page. They guy ...love him or hate him... is getting people to pay to listen to his babble. $20K is a years rent in a storefront around the Valley....crazy to think people would pay someone $20K for something like this.

I just redid my business cards two months ago. I'm no graphic designer, but I think they came out pretty good. Some of the examples in that link were really something.

Working on a new one now... nothing amazing.. just updating images and streamlining the front of the card. I want to add the QR code but not sure if people would take to it?

Crazy isn't it... but... if people are willing to pay... can't fault the guy for making some serious $$$ snake oil or not. I think it's 100% ridiculous.. but.. someone will think it's awesome.

Some people would think it's cool... lots of people would have no idea what it is.

Tech Questions...

So I have to replace my video card... and one of my hard drives is starting to make clicking noises, so I guess I need to replace that before it crashes.

I decided I need to set my system up as a RAID... so I have 2 drives that are exactly the same, updating in real time. that way, when one dies, I'll hopefully have a back up... swap out the bad drive for trash and keep the good one.

Now the question is... I have so many huge files... my 1TB drive is already 3/4 full (unless I have duplicate stuff that needs cleaning off).

If I am burning that much memory in 18-20 months.. I need to make a better back up system for archives. I'd like to have 2 copies, I think...

So..... what about those little tower things, that just hold about 6 hard drives... it looks like a computer tower, but all that's in it is a bunch of drives. If I buy a tower.. then I can just add drives to it as I go along.. right? Now how would I be able to access those drives in the tower from my PC, in the event I wanted to go back and get a file?

Can someone help educate me? or do I just want to buy a bunch of external drives and keep a library of them? I think I'm getting in over my head.. lol...
