So, here I am again typing away at my computer instead of sleeping.
I do a lot of that lately... typing, not sleeping. Some days I spend hours sitting here typing and others, just reading and editing or outlining so I can spend MORE time writing. ARGH!
And, what I seem to do a lot of lately is really add a lot of work to my development team, pushing and pulling and guiding and waiting... patiently... for Rapid Member Pro to be ready enough.
"Ready Enough" - I have a phrase for that - "Good enough is good to go." I used to say. Seth Godin, one of my favorite authors, says "Ship it." and I say - "Okay! I will!... uhm... when it's ready to ship."
It's been over four years now since I got into this software thing... what a learning experience this has been. Some good, some not so good, most of what I've learned though is that patience is mandatory when developing software and when you have people doing their best to develop your vision without having anything to model what you are seeing to show them.
I give credit to my partner and development team - they've really put in a great deal of time and effort making this platform great.
Like you, I wish we could just wave a magic wand and get this launched already - but, software just doesn't work that way... at least, not in my experience so far it doesn't anyway.
What I've been working on is writing my other courses and marketing materials and e-mail content, etc. while we slowly and painfully develop each function, feature and powerful tool for you to use in Rapid Member Pro.
We've also been updating and working on Rapid Residual Pro, our hosted membership software solution, keeping that platform up to date and making it better every day. Still, Rapid Member Pro is our new baby and we're so ready to reveal her to you... soon, very soon.
I know that I've been saying that for six months now - "Soon" in developer speak just doesn't mean what it means to us marketers who are ready for a real, powerful, full featured system that can essentially handle anything we throw at it in our businesses. We want FAST, NOW, IMMEDIATELY, READY TO USE TODAY, etc. Patience, has been a very long road and painfully persistent teacher this year - I just hope we can graduate soon!
And, when Rapid Member Pro is ready, you'll see that it's been worth the wait...
We are working hard... every day, and it's coming together so well. I'd rather wait to get it right than hurry and have problems, but that's because of my previous experience in software, with Rapid Residual Pro, during the past few years.
Software is NEVER finished! It's only evolving quietly in the background... no matter what anyone tells you.
Technology swims in an ocean of other technology and that ocean changes, moves so fast, it's like trying to wrestle lions with nothing but a loin cloth and a wet towel... very hard to get an edge and even harder to keep it once you get hold of a handful of tail... man, that sucker can run, scratch, bite and twist - it's so hard to hang on and keep up!
Still, we're doing all we can to get our boat in the water and make sure it's ready for you soon.
I'll be adding a priority notification list for you on the home page this week hopefully, once we get a few things together and I get my final edits for the two free gifts I want to give you for adding yourself to our list.
You know I don't send out many emails... and when I do send them, they are not time wasters or petty - so, keep an eye on your inbox, I'll be posting updates soon, once we start offering the Priority Notification List to you.
Personally, I've also been spending as much time with my family as I can, on weekends especially - something new for me! Michael and Alexis are doing great in school, Ridge is loving California and is coming to visit this weekend and Leam is enjoying our new place and we're finally settled into the apartment - though, there is still a lot to move around and over eventually, but we're not in any hurry.
I've also lost over twenty pounds and have been exercising regularly again - ugh. Feel a LOT better but man, it's a challenge to fit the exercising in and develop good habits for sleeping, eating and exercising daily, isn't it?
Overall, I'm working for you though... the courses I'm writing are going to help a lot of folks... and Rapid Member Pro, is definitely going to change lives for the better, I'm absolutely positive.
