The Plus 1 Badge Hunt marks a departure for us, and it is plainly showing in the badge totals and badge holders.
Some of you may not know that in some of the previous hunts I counted every badge every day in order keep everyone informed and up to speed. It is considerably easier now that TimTech does the counting and sorting for us.
The badge hunters have changed some. I see lots of new faces claiming badges and lots of new names on the list of people that will get paid for being in the top 75. When there was only one prize (and often only one winner) there were a fairly small group of people that I noticed every day. Now I see a much larger group.
News Flash: Elina Balashova will not be the top badge claimer this hunt. For those that don’t know, Elina won the first 4 badge hunt titles. She has grown from monster surfer to owning SunshineSurfClub and giving out badges for surfing her site.
A year ago, almost nobody knew who Thomas Sheets was. Just another face in the crowd. Now he owns 4 TEs and is one of the people that really gets the leverage that is available by using the badge hunt and promos to grow his product. Another person that has taken action and gone in way over his head. And not only survived but is starting to thrive.
Who knew Susan Howarth a year ago? Kris Rogers? Leone Marzino? Just goes to show that you can step out from the crowd.
The point of all this is that each and every one of us can do it. I can do it, you can do it. It takes hard work and dedication every day, but the growth potential in this business is just amazing. It can start by getting more badges than you ever thought possible. What are you waiting for? The world awaits!
I’m just sayin’
