The one thing that I would emphasize is that you should be looking at a wider picture. Just having a better SEO and good affiliates is too small a picture right now. There's an enormous conversation going on about dating and self-improvement, and it's incredibly repetitive and unhelpful. You need to go in there and shake it up.
If anything, my problem has always been that ALL I look at is the big picture and long-term picture... and as for monetization, I still make money off the old PP products (traffic still goes there and I still promote to that list). I also have a couple non-PU internet sources of income. I'm not hurting for money, although my marketing could be doing better... it could have always been doing better... it's always just been "good enough."

Dating is a spectator-consumer industry, taking action scares the shit out of most of us. Besides, when you came out with the book it was unequivocally your voice, coming from your heart. We felt it, it transpired from every post that you wrote in reference to the book. The program... I am sure you believe it, stand behind it but will we take action?
You absolutely nailed it here. And I'm surprised I didn't think of it earlier. But I kind of freaked out last week because the Approach Program sold about 1/2 as much as I expected to. But in the survey I just put up, for every person who responded "I already signed up," over two people responded "I plan on signing up, but am not ready yet." It occurred to me that the way the program is structured -- forcing people to be so accountable -- actually causes people to DELAY signing up. Sigh... yet another case of me prioritizing "what works" over "what sells."
BTW, the survey is showing that people by and large prefer multiple writers. It appears my c0ncern about this was somewhat 1) projecting my own biases, and 2) a case of a loud minority complaining.

The Brasileiras are treating me REAL well since I got here... in fact, I just sent one home... Carnaval bloco party straight to my bed. I seriously may end up living here for most of the year.

This is a good point.
As for everything in the same spot. I understand... I've been evolving quickly the past year or two, and unfortunately my ability with technology has not kept up with that.
