A-aron throwing darts at my forehead

Got this verbal dart from A-aron:

===

Hey John. I understand why you are doing this but to be honest it’s not awesome. I bought a one year membership of Skillshare specifically for your courses. 🙁 I get it though, you make fore sure way more money selling the courses piecemeal on your website so I can’t fault you for that but it still isn’t great from our perspective.

===

Actually A-train… I’d say you don’t understand why I do it.

I mean look… I’m not an Iowan– uh, idiot. I know I’m going to piss a few people off with how I release my courses. I accept it. But, there’s thing… each one is up on Skillshare for close to a month upon release.

I send multiple notifications ON Skillshare.

I email here nearly every day about it.

You have MORE THAN ample opportunity to take the courses. So, your year membership is still a sound investment. Not to mention all the other courses of mine and others on the site. So, you’ll forgive me if I’m not sympathetic.

In fact, when I hear this I think:

“Good!”

Now, he KNOWS.

When I say there’s a deadline, there’s a deadline. Look, I’m not here to babysit you, pat you on the head and tell you you’re special. I provide training, I release it how *I* want and you either take it or you don’t.

I tell you constantly…

That’s for YOU to figure out.

But, don’t whine to me if you procrastinate until the last minute and end up missing out on something. And, if you want to own the thing outright so you can flip my deadlines the bird, I let you do that too — often at a steep discount.

So yeah…

I’m not shedding any tears.

Anyhoo, this is all pertinent beyond my typical ranting at the ether… because the deadline to get my latest course, Freelance Feast, for $134 OFF the regular price is coming to an abrupt end — tomorrow, June 4th at midnight.

If you want it at the lowest price it’ll ever be…

Now is the time.

As ZERO exceptions will be made.

Anyway, link to learn more about the course and the discount is here: https://myjohn.us/feast

Later,

JohnP.S. If you’re a patron of mine on Patreon, you already have access to this course (and all my courses) on Patreon here: https://myjohn.us/patreon.

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Ray Edwards

I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

John has a relaxed and engaging manner. His advice is solid and the explanations are well thought out.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Bradley Smith

John and I have worked together on numerous projects. John is very quick and efficient and was a pleasure to work with.

Lori Grant

John did an outstanding job on my project. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him on future projects.
