Yesterday a gal here asked something like "Suppose I choose to utterly give myself over to what you think is the best use of my time.  What are your orders?"

I put a fair bit of thought into this.

My first thought is the bootcamp.  Nearly everything, both here and online, hinges on filling the bootcamp.  (sidenote - during this conversation, it occurs to me that 90% of the effort of the bootcamp is for the bootcamp.  The bootcamp builds and grows stuff for future boots)

But I happen to know that this gal cannot make this leap at this time.  So I said

Go onto permies and help people.  One at a time.  Answer questions.  Move this community forward one post at a time.  

In time, because of your helpfulness, you will be invited to join the staff.   And there is mountains of stuff the staff is perpetually working on.

All of the staff stuff can be done from anywhere in the world, and whenever it is convenient to you.

We also talked a bit about how all of my stuff that is for sale has a 50% affiliate fee.  If she takes the steps to get passive income going for herself, it helps fund all the projects here at wheaton labs.
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry. I wrung this tiny ad and it was still dry.
