A New Challenge!

Everyone! There is a new challenge in the business section. You do not need to be a business owner to take part. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to try it. Check it out.

Ed, I hope not. It sounds like a lot of fun. Perhaps a repost in the Challenge area might breath new life Into it, or perhaps Post it there and with no date restriction and see what develops. Just have people submit as they want to. Since it is a chance to exchange information and techniques and not a competition, that might put folks, especially those just starting out, more at ease with the idea. Just a thought. Tom

Go for it Tom. Put up an example. You might be right about posting it on the Challenges also. I don't know if it will do any good to lift the time restrictions, but maybe it will. What do you think Doug?

That might help. Many people have work and family and may be hesitant about commiting to the challenge and then have no time to complete it by the deadline. You could leave it an open challenge like all the others.

Everyone knows about the Challenge. They either have chosen to stay silent, or are simply waiting for someone else to go first.

I suspect there may have been some pressure felt. I can't tell you how many emails I get sent with people to shy or intimidated to post at all, so the slightest teeniest pressure can sway someone's opinion.

Maybe go with who you've got onboard, then catch the rest on round two? Or make it less competitive and more open-ended? Or start with something easier?

(I think) You've got a lot of people watching, and wanting to see what others do, but unwilling to risk (they think) looking silly (they think).
