    This will make people mad, but here goes.

    First, I miss Patrick.

    My reason for the teams is to get noticed. To be “out there”.

    Patrick was great at giving kudos to the teams. Good or bad – he recognized everyone.

    Then, the answer to this is “I’ve told people they can write on the blog, but nobody will”.

    It’s not about that. It’s about the TimTech guys recognizing the teams they created. The people involved who work their asses off to be #1.

    Some of you will call it whining, and I don’t really care what you think of me personally. Those who like me will like me, and those who don’t, won’t. I’m okay with that, because I’m working my ass off to make a living.

    Patrick really captured the team spirit here, and kept us motivated. This blog was the hub of the community. Even those that didn’t attend TE Live read the blog – so they could quietly be involved while running their own businesses.

    I’m really disappointed in the events of the past few weeks, and seriously considering not being on a team next season. I’ll still have the skype room and the wonderful wonderful people I’ve met because of the teams – but it just seems like it’s not about the people anymore.

    And yes, I can hear it now – “Aw, Sunny’s pissed off because she didn’t get noticed”. I’m not pissed that *I* didn’t get noticed, but that the other 24 people on my team didn’t get noticed. Or the hard working people who tried to beat us on the SAAs didn’t get noticed.

    Loyalty comes from actions. Not words.

    • YAY !! WTG Sunny I liked that ! Thank you for standing out and say it.
      Many thinks like that now..big fights sort of dosent matter anymore and the playoffs will be all about not working but buying XP….use the most freaking dollars and you WIN …Timtech style
      Oh well

        That’s all on me, for not being out there more with this blog.

        Patrick was the best at keeping up to date, and without him here, I’m in over my head for the blogging stuff.

        I love blogging, but I’m not very good at planning things, I just write when the spirit moves me per se.

        So I offered it up to anyone that would like to contribute, you guys have a much more hands on approach to the teams than I do.

        It would be a great way for exposure and get some of your articles out there.

    First of all – Sunny, you are always noticed simply because you are Sunny πŸ™‚

    We created a B team at Lucky 13 because we simply hated getting rid of people in our loving network because they could not surf like crazy to help the team win some of the competitions. We did that because we are a family and we love networking with each other for business and personal things. That is what the birth of CTP Teams did for us.

    Unfortunately the whole CTP Teams concept has transformed into some sort of ugly competition that has less to do with business building and more to do with all kinds of things that it should not be about and only a few things that it should be about.

    Lucky 13 and Lucky 13 Too are about business and relationship building. We work our butts of individually and as teams. At the end of the day we can care less what folks think of us when we kick butt and take names in these competitions. We do what we do.

    Folks need to really focus on what all of this was supposed to be all about – friendly competition, business building, learning from each other and giving folks recognition for at least trying to be in the game.

    Where has the spirit gone? Where has the integrity gone? Where did all the in-fighting come from? Well, Lucky 13 still holds tru to the original concept of CTP Teams. We network and do our best to build our businesses and help one another.

    Jon Olson encouraged me to stick with it no matter what. Lucky 13 is the reason that I’m glad that I did stick with it.

    Yes, I miss Patrick as well. I miss a lot of things that was and is no longer.

    I, like Sunny can care less what folks think of me.

    Chew on that for a while folks πŸ™‚

    • Jon Olson says:

      CTP Teams has been and always will be, about like minded people working together for a goal.

      But yes, heaven forbid and as much as Ole wants to complain about it, this is a business and we do try to make money from it.

      At the end of the day though, it’s all about the people you meet while building a team and that is very obvious inside of Lucky 13….You guys are a rock.

    I didnt get mad at all about reading the posts above… I found it interesting reading.

    And none should be scared to speak out, and tell how they see it…
    Calling this good and something to think about writings, that aint whining at all.

    You’re either with us or against us, those who say that because of how Sunny and allso many others out there see it…well that is all wrong. I read the words as good questions and toughts about what the team “battles” was about (It started really intersting & Fun), what they become, and where are we going..?

    Its allways good to hear peoples toughts about things in business and marketing..and as a business owner on and offline… I have learned to listen to the people out there, and allways seen the benefits of listen to my employees ideas.

    That doesnt meen all ideas are perfect, as I dont think none is perfect, we learn as we live.
    And to Follow up customers, investors, etc is allso very important in business.

    Now It will be very interesting how and whats comming for this seasons playoff.
    And I am 100% I dont only speak for myself when it comes to that.

    I wish all teams a great end of season, and a wonderfull upcomming Christmas-season

    Adding some words to think about:

    Mark 9:38
    “Teacher,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.”

    • Jon Olson says:

      We think the new format for the teams was a huge win, so far people have really enjoyed it.

      The shorter season and then the rotating game modes every day,

      That could only happen because we really went through the motions and learned a lot in previous seasons.

      We’re always trying to get better and be better πŸ™‚

    Melvin Udall: That’s not true. Some of us have great stories. Pretty stories that take place at lakes with boats and friends and noodle salad. Just no one in this car. But, a lot of people, that’s their story: good times, noodle salad. What makes it so hard is not that you had it bad, but that you’re that pissed that so many others had it good.

  5. I don’t have a lot of time to comment because I’m headed to Jaden’s Basketball Tournament, but I so very much agree with Sunny & Johnny!!

    This is why I love our Lucky 13 (and extended) family. We’re all about building business. If we win, great, if not, big whoop. What we’re more concerned with is how many subscribers we got, how many connections did we make, how much money did we bring in, how strong are we building our brand. We do it with determination and love!

    We support each other as it should be. I really could care less about beating another team. It doesn’t build our businesses to surf all day for hours on end, so I never ever expect or encourage it.

    I miss Patrick. I miss Jangle. I miss Tom and even Bill. They were a huge part of TT’s heart & it doesn’t feel the same.

    • Jon Olson says:

      Change is not something we as humans do well with.

      We made some changes at TimTech, there is reasons that things happen and because of that, Panda Profits looks to be a great success and both parties are moving forward.

  6. Evelyn Kramer says:

    Noodle Salad? I guess you are a Jack Nicholson fan too. LOL
    I love how you broke up the tension Vitaly. Way to say something absolutely charming. I have been preoccupied with some offline drama at home but I am ready to take up the challenge during the playoffs.

    Good Luck Everyone. You are going to need it against the Wealth Builders!
    lol I really do su– at the trash talk. I need some tootaladge. lol

  7. Wendy says:

    I thought something was different, I just didn’t know what, I can see that clearly something should be done different. Where’s Patrick anyway?

  8. Anne Bergman says:

    Uh oh..seems our teamleader have retired,
    Good luck all the teams
