I have received messages from people who want to study my courses, BUT can’t afford it. It’s such a pity to hear that.
We are all in a financially unstable situation. As someone who is living in Ukraine, I can understand your situation very well 🙂 That said, I want to help everybody get better at chess and this is a VERY juicy solution.
You can earn money by being a part of my TEAM.
As you have guessed, I have a team of assistants (taking on whole projects myself is suicide!) who help me in different areas like websites, advertising, design and those are just to name a few.
I’m anticipating 2012 to be a VERY busy year and I’m going to need MORE help. Whether it’s getting more financial support or having enough spending power to purchase my courses – this should help you a lot. Check out the vacancies and positions here: LINK
One more thing: I’d like to answer another question here. Recently, some people write to me looking for discount. While I have provided discounts before (and they missed it), they are quite insistent on me giving them a special treatment.
In the previous issues we were talking about thinking and analyzing the situation. So let’s think this one together.
–> If you require better conditions or special treatment for you… better, than everybody else have – then you are not being fair to other people (all my other students), right?
–> Next, while developing a new course I work 8-12 hour a day at 6 days a week for a few months. YES, ‘giving birth’ to an intensive chess course is exhausting. I include only the BEST part of my work there (thus you see only a peak of the iceberg).
So how much should it cost? 5 bucks? 🙂 If you want to get the course dirt cheap – then you don’t respect my work. Plus, you are not being fair to me.
–> If you don’t respect my work and all my students, then why should I make any favors for you?
By the way, if you don’t respect my work, but still want to get it – it means that you don’t respect yourself also. 🙂
Maybe you’d like to say “Hey, that’s not the point. I just want your course, but haven’t enough money for it”. Well, that doesn’t disprove the previous statements.
To end this, I’d like to share a sage idea of Bodo Schaefer: “You get something not because you need it, but because you deserve it”.
Instead of asking, you should start acting. And you’ll get everything that you deserve.
On a side note, the job openings for my team can give you a good start. 🙂
