Here’s what YOU said…

Watch this short video:

I’m blown away by seeing you all come together as freedom buddies, and by the masterminds
I’ve witnessed. I’m going to get to work responding to your requests for further support.

In the meantime…

Partnerships make everything work. When we work together, there is literally no end to what we can accomplish. You can be very proud of how far you have come and even more excited
about where we are all going.

Please share a thought or two about the power of partnership, and what it means to you…

David

    Partnership: A superb way to keep you accountable, share insightful ideas as well as gain new ideas. Keeps those creative juices flowing and fuels your inspirations. We NEED other people to help us along on our journeys…chances are that we will be expotentionally more successful when partnered than when choosing to go it alone…
    P.S. Thank you for all that you have shared!!!

    Partnership could bring balance to the company/venture or process. One of the virtues I see on partnership is “the spirit of cooperation” (law definition, the exchange of ideas and support. Of course, a wrong partnership can also kill your business, but in balance, its a risk worth to take. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Partnership to me goes hand in hand with cooperation. It is working together to create a mutual desired outcome, where everyone wins.

    However and I love how David you mention on one of your earlier videos, you have to know what you want and more important why or (what your purpose) for having it is.

  4. David, I need help finding the webpage to make a donation for my e-book.

    Also, I have the link to your book on my blog and I know people are using it. How do I view the world map to check the impact of this link?

    I have to agree that in partnerships it all depends on who the partnership is with. I have some experience with an eventual partner in the last few months. Networking and great deal of contacts is extremely important for the business I am planning to open up.

    Partnership allows for a synergy in which results are far greater than the sum of their parts. Two heads are better than one. Two people, three opinions. Etc. I would appreciate a mastermind group with true masters, and hope some day to be a master to serve others. 🙂

    Partnership for me is something that will help both sides (or all sides) to advance each other’s goals. It’s what I need to help me re-energize when I get stuck. I don’t need to be brow-beaten, just shown how to get back on my path and reminded of the passion that drove me to begin this journey. Helping me expand my tool-set. My desire is to provide that to any and all partners who bless me with their dreams too.

    Partnership to me is working with a person or group of people that get what you are doing and are as excited about it as you. Who listen to your ideas and give back constructive feedback and help you keep the excitement on those days you lose a little faith.

    Hello David, and others;
    to me partnership means
    building a network
    of advisors, vendors,
    and out-sources.
    Possibly someone to come in
    as a joint-venture.

    It’s been very interesting watching
    you grow your market,
    from the day I clicked on your link
    in HWn’W,
    which came in my opt-in mail
    from Learning Strategies.

    I have some ideas about WHO You Are,
    but not many about How YOU Get Paid.

    I can see that you are a pioneer,
    and I ALWAYS applaud people who
    think for themselves
    and act upon it!

    Warmest wishes,
    Linda

    Hi David

    Thanks so much for the book. My freedom score is pretty high, except for the financial one, and if that one doesn’t improve soon I could very well lose all the other freedoms I have been enjoying. I’ve chosen to stay home to raise my son, and I am trying to come up with ways to make enough money to continue to live that way. One idea I have is to find jobs for other parents who want to work from home part time while caring for their children. I would start by getting some bookkeeping clients, because that’s an area I am familiar with, and can train someone to do, but I would like to eventually have all kinds of services to offer, all things that can be done from home, on ones own time.

    Another thing I am interested in is having a website with information about parenting, focusing on outdoors adventures for parents and children, with the goal to encourage a closer bond between parents and children, and also with nature. I’m open to ideas as to how I can generate money from that. One possibility I can think of is having links to outdoors adventure guides who would offer trips for families all over the world, and get a commission from the referrals. Another would be to collect e-mails from loyal readers and use the list to sell the occasional article related to that topic.

    Thanks again

    Paulo

      Hey Paulo

      It is great that you are at home to raise your kid. This is priceless. And I think your idea for the family/outdoor/stayconnected a great idea. Many people don’t have the time to search and You could offer a custom vacation plan, or just a camping plan, that will fit their needs.
      Awesome.
      Way to go.

      Much Love

    I find it helpful that someone is like-minded, yet already been there and done that. I like to learn from other people. If I have someone on my own level… I don’t think we’d get very far!

    Partnership is all about trust and support. In partnerships or team work everyone has the opportunity to contribute ones talent and express creativity. The world indeed needs new ideas, new thoughts in order to create a new world. Change in the world starts with individuals and just like what you are doing David, the ultimate goal is to share talents and skills freely, working for the common good of all. What a selfless contribution! It will powerfully impact the world and create positive changes. We must never lose sight that when we receive we also have the responsibility to give.

    In this particular instant, partnership means to me having someone to consult who knows more and can provide assistance in an area where I lack knowledge or understanding. It also means having someone to encourage, educate and support me when and where required and vice versa. A partnership is an interaction of ‘enhancement’ and complementing one another.

    What partnership means to me is illustrated by the mastermind group I’m in. We hold the highest vision for each person in the group and really make the sense of greater possibilities a real experience rather than a distant dream. We all leave refreshed and energized, with faith in ourselves reaffirmed. A mastermind group calls on the Master Mind or Divine Mind that is greater than the sum of each of the individuals. It’s a great experience!

    What I see as you’re speaking is a large ever-changing circulation of souls…using the screen above, where you were speaking, David, continuously running short video clips of various ‘getpaidforwhoyouare’ers’ speaking about what they do, perhaps eventually with a structure, like an index, so you can find what/who you need in this large, amorphous community-and call forth their image, hear them speak to see if theirs is the skill set that you need…like a directory of souls, stories, gifts…

      Hey Jacki

      I am not sure if I totally understood your idea. Would it be like a “‘visual catalog’ of the people doing the most” and then David or everyone else would pick and choose who they want as partners?

      Wouldn’t it create some competition in a way that, people who believed David’s book is for everyone and everyone can do it, would feel left out or running behind?
      Sorry if I really didn’t get you idea.

  23. Partnership is strenghts united for bigger success.

    Everything single relationship can be viewed this way too as long as it’s fulfilling for both parties.

    I have a few partners I’m working with, and some I will be working with in the future that we are building a relationship with at the moment. Very exciting times.

    Hi David,

    I am wondering, reading around a bit through the comments, whether it would be possible to instigate a page where people can leave a comment as to what they have to offer fellow-getting-paid-for-who-you-are community members?

    Just so that ‘techy’s’ can find the non-technically minded; those that tend to loose enthusiasm can find those who always see a way through; or just find partners to bounce ideas around…

    I guess, it would mean taking the freedom buddy up to a different level.

    Parnership to me is having someone to share the highs and the lows. Someone who understands what I am trying to achieve and supports me whilst being objective in a constructive way. And visa versa for them afterall they’re a partner not a mentor.

      There is no fee, no selling of selling products, no superego. We work the steps in the book (GPFWYA)and we support each other, hold each other accountable and the best of all we become friends.

    Partnership is incredibly important and key to success not only in business, but in Life. I had been considering going into commercial real estate and everywhere I turn it seems that Partnership is key to get things going.

    In the personal realm, choosing who you associate with, trusted reliable friends, is something everyone needs in life. Sorting out the ones who are ‘fair weather’ friends (and with business partners too), is important and a necessity to move forward towards a better life.

    Oh and P.S. Love the kilt David 😛

    I think it all depends on who the partnership is with. It goes without saying that a partnership with someone who is at my level would be dramatically different than a partnership with someone who has already been through the process
