I had a post all ready to go on Friday, but I got writer's block, and then I thought I wasn't going to go anywhere with it, so I scrapped it.
It's been a pretty trying weekend for me on the real life front. Really stressful. But that's what the holiday season entails. Stress. Lots of it.
But I was able to get the second round of TEAM results up. They're at FWC, and I've shilled them everywhere.
I have to say I'm satisfied with how things are going so far. I'm getting a good RP turnout, only one no-show for the second round. Hopefully, we get none from here on out.
My ultimate hope is that this leads into increased awareness and recruitment for TEAM. I was talking to Chad the other day, and I asked him how he got folks for the CSWA. He said he got them through referrals, advertising and just on the CSWA name a lone.
I really don't have a name for TEAM. It's one of the newer feds, and outside of the sort of cadre of folks that I have who will do anything that I'm putting together, I really don't have the pull of the legendary feds like MBE or CSWA, the big ones lke PRIME or fWo or the ones with a lot of buzz behind them like NFW.
The trick is creating buzz. The concept alone won't do it. Chad said that maybe people are scared away by the committment. I can totally see that.
What do I need? A finalized website design? Better recruiting techniques? An already established roster?
It's tough, but I know for a lot of fedheads out there, I'm preaching to the choir.
But yeah, the latest shows are up. Peep them and as always, I welcome feedback.
