    Terry I dont know how long you have been on the BB's but its a world of its own.

    I spoke of how Ron is tryin to get sponsors not contractors to pay, I think that is great. now and in past years many many round tables have cost money to the contractors. forget about the travel and hotel, but the actual events have cost $50, $89. $125 up to close to $200 just to attend, some have been different some have been better than others. Some of the RT's Rons has Co sponsored this year have either been free or pretty cheap....good for the contractor I think!!!!! All have been informative at least....good for contractors

    You talk about making money off of others. I have spoke to this, Ron has put out a ton of money. I put out over $2000 out of my pocket for my RT, just a little fact Ron offered to pay half of what ever I put out. I declined I had planned on it so I stuck to my plan. If and when Ron makes money off these RT's it wont be on the back of contractors. There may be a fee I dont know that is up to the host of the RT's. But basically its historically cheap

    You mention Ron uses all the BB's, so what. half the time he's promoting an event that isnt costing the contractor much or anything to attend. But you know something,many use the BB's to promote their companies. I do a little and many many others. Sure it draws customers to tour website. In my case I have been posting a ton long before I had a website.

    Rons also a talker he has been running around the BB's long before he was doing this set of RT, what was his motive at those times. Ron has always run around the BB's

    Now Ron runs PWI, he takes no sponsors, why? because he doesnt want to be beholding to any I would think. He doesnt ask the contractors for anything except to be professional Why? because he wants a free resource for contractor to learn. Key word is FREE..good for contractors. He also has one of, if not the largest membership of the BB's I think. You mention it cost for space to be used on all these other BB's, well it cost Ron too and he's been paying that bill for yearssssss. He doesnt sell anything on his BB, he doesnt ask for donations, he asks for nothing, once again I say he asks for everyone to be professionaal and share


    Rons a million mile an hour kind of guy. but you know Ron will help ANYONE and he's done it for FREE for years. Before I knew him well at all, I called him several times for advise, several times. Heck the 1st couple times he didnt even know who I was..guess what he gave me the help advise I need, asked for nothing. Now Terry multiply that y dozen who call him weekly, some times daily. He asks none of them for anything

    Back to the RT's if he, Ron makes some money some day as long as its being paid by the sponsors so what...good for the contractor. everything cost why should Ron keep putting out thousands of dollars like he has this year. If I , if you, if Ron if anyone else that has held or will hold Rt's so what if its paid for in other ways other than contractors paying to attend, paying for their meals etc

    Ron likes making money, but one thing I have seen this year and last was and years past Ron likes to help contractors make money...That good for the contractors. If Ron wants people to look at him thats fine with me, because I many things many look to him for help....for free

    almost done have to stop a kid from crying

    At the next late nite event I'm going to read this for a drinking game. Each time you say my name we drink. Kinda like we played Bob on the newhart show in the 80's. LOL

    Truly, thanks Jeff for the nice words. Guys, I appreciate the nice thoughts. People have there own opionions and its fine they do. If everyone was for what I do or thought I was wonderful then I would be careful. We are turning this wonderful thread into something i did not Intend to have happen.

    Alls i can say is come to a roundtable and see for yourself. You be the judge in 2009, let us know how we can make these better. Anyone is welcome....

    Terry I know you have your thoughts but just so you know. Ron is trying to get these actual RT's to basically be free for the contractor or very cheap at least. Instead of charging the contractor big bucks to pay for everything, he is getting sponsors/vendors to pay for the events. Not the contractor which is pretty good I think.

    I kind of bias, I have Round Table fever. I just love meeting the contractors and networking
    Florida was free also, Colorado was also free I believe. Scott Charge 50 but gave away some things that costed more than 50...

    This is not a paid adverisement. But... for anyone who is interested in doing a roundtable, Ron has given great advise in helping me plan for the NY event and helping me run my business. Am I doing everthing identical to Rons format or topics... no.

    Look back 5 years ago... I remember my first event that I attended. I drove 8 hours to get there. There was 13 people there and I learned volumes of information that was intrumental in me building sales and improving operations. I do feel that when there comes a time when there is enough contractor educational events where every contractor in the industry can attend one less than 200 miles from their home, the industry will have an ample amount of educational events.

    Many Newbies, potential newbies and even veterans can not afford to travel great distances to attend events. I believe it is important to take the events to the contractors when feasable. Just my .02.
