Ok, so this discussion and a few other things finally got me off my butt to commit.

I signed up for Marc’s TWW Guild a couple of days ago and just started scanning through the content you get when you pay. I am very pleasantly surprised. A few things that satisfied me right off that I made the right call.
- the guild operates like a guild…regular meetings, collaboration, sharing expertise, even live discussions on something you want some help with. I don’t have a local guild, so this is a great opportunity.
- the guild builds and associated instructional videos. I take courses when I can…the biggest obstacle beyond time is money…the guild plans for 3 builds each year…I can’t come close to comparing the cost of 3 courses.
- interviews – getting into the heads of pros and guys with loads of experience and realizing that they started without any sort of leg-up and still succeed…very inspiring stuff and loaded with great ideas.
- the community on TWW parallels LJs (and obviously has some cross pollination), it’s friendly, not too serious and clearly devoid of spam.

In my day job I have to assess the value of something with very little input to go on, based on a couple of days of poking around in the TWW Guild (ok, late nights…very late…) I see awesome value for the money and having followed Marc through WTO and TWW for a couple of years now, I am very happy with the decision to sign up.

Disclaimer: I haven’t been paid or compensated to say any of this….of course, I wouldn’t want to offend anyone by refusing such a payment. :-)
