A fork in the road
Posted on November 25, 2013
I case you haven’t kept up with the news, I’ve just officially closed down The Attraction Institute.
It’s been the major focus of my life for the last 7 years, but at this point in my life, it’s just not what I’m looking for anymore.
Whilst this might seem like a shame to a lot of people, it’s also given me something I haven’t had in a long time: Brain space.
You see, it’s taken me 32 years to become very comfortable with and very aware of the fact that I can do one thing well or two thing poorly.
I can cook dinner or have a conversation.
I can work out or think about work.
One thing well, two things poorly.
Running AI was my one thing, meaning I didn’t have the mental room to think about anything else I wanted to do.
And now I do.
But this leads on to a new problem: I now have TWO things I want to do and in my head, there’s no way to separate them.
This is why I need your help.
Have a read through the two projects below and tell me which one you’d like to see more. The one with more votes will be the next project I start and the next one I bring to life.
Project 1: Men’s Coaching Website
One thing that’s become more than apparent over the years is that the level of coaching available for guys who want real help is incredibly low.
There are so many so called coaches selling their services who have very little idea of what the real issues are and even less of an idea of how to fix a problem when they stumble upon it.
This isn’t their fault though. I’ve been through life coaching training and dating and relationship coach training and both of them were incredibly poor.
(One course even tried to teach me 6 ways to show that I was listening when I wasn’t)
I’m now part of a group of Men’s Coaches and it’s clear that even in this group, there are a lot of guys who aren’t sure how to provide real solutions to real problems.
Because of this, I want to start a website that teaches guys how to be Men’s Coaches. My experience with coaching guys, coaching guys who want to be coaches, and going through other coaching programs, has helped me understand what’s needed and how to structure the coaching programs.
The website would include articles and podcasts but would focus mostly on delivering high end training programs to guys who want to make a difference to the world.
Project 2: Men’s Personal Development
With over 650 articles written over 7 years about Men’s dating and relationships for AI, I feel like I’ve said everything I could possibly say on the topic.
But that doesn’t mean there I don’t have more to say about Men’s personal development in general.
The same problems are still faced by a HUGE amount of guys and I believe I have the knowledge and skills that can help them overcome their barriers.
This new project would have a similar angle to The Attraction Institute, but would focus on a much wider range of topics – including dating and relationships, but also work, friendships, skills, conflict resolution, anger management, general lifestyle tips, discussions of relevant news topics and current events, and anything else that was relevant to Men’s personal development.
It would include articles, discussion forums, podcasts, video’s, and interactive webinars.
So, what do you want to see more?
They’re the two projects that I’m keen to start, but haven’t been able to draw a line between. Which one would you be more interested in seeing? And what is it about it that makes it more appealing to you?
Let me know in the comments below and whichever one is more popular will be the first to get launched.
