    Chris! You are doing a great job. Keep going.

    Thanks Chris, glad to be a part of the list, and more importantly, “the tribe”! Sorry I missed all of the discussion yesterday….had some OT offered at my job that I couldn’t refuse!

  • Laura Johnson

    THANK YOU, CHRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kevinschumm

    Congrats guys! Thanks for adding so much to this already so awesome site. When Chris disappears from time to time its fun to see your comments! Going to a goal planning event next tuesday and on the 4th a whole profile deal on all sorts of profiles Disk included. Anyone been involved with Sandler training, have any input?

  • Laura Johnson

    THANK YOU, CHRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • http://www.ChrisLoCurto.com Chris LoCurto

      Thank YOU!!!!

      • Laura Johnson

        Shoot, that comment and the one I posted previous (of the exact same nature) didn’t show on my phone as posted. So I did it again…..oops.

  • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

    Congrats on a great month! Thanks for continuing to put out great stuff here on your blog.

  • http://caroldublin.com/ Carol Dublin

    Wow – I went into a meeting and came out to craziness on here! You guys are cracking me up today! Love this tribe!!

  • Laura Johnson

    THANK YOU, CHRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.janabotkin.net/ Jana Botkin

    Congratulations, you Top Tenners! (I’ll be back. . .)

    Switching from Safari to Chrome has allowed me to see the comments again. It was a lonely boring month without being able to follow all your goofiness and bickering.

    Chris, it was fun to hear you say “BAH!” on one of the podcasts – almost dropped my paintbrush!

    • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

      Chrome solved all the Disqus issues for me as well.

      • http://www.indueseason.net skottydog

        can you get Chrome for Macs?

        • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

          Apparently you can but it seems to be available for the newer OS. I do like it a lot. I have in on my iPad also.

    • Laura Johnson

      Goofiness and bickering…
      So true :)

  • http://www.bluebridgecomm.com/ Joel Fortner

    I’m back……..baby.

    • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

      Go Joel! BTW I wouldn’t use code word “baby” unless you’re making a formal announcement ;0)

    • Laura Johnson

      Ditto what Lily said :)

  • http://www.joshuarivers.net/ Joshua Rivers

    I got busy in August and fell off the list! Well, I guess it’s still a great list :) Great comments and advice as usual! I look forward to more great conversations in September! God bless y’all!

    • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

      Here’s a rope so you can pull yourself back on the list ;0) *hands off rope*

      • http://www.joshuarivers.net/ Joshua Rivers

        AAAaaahhhhhh!!!!! *grabs limb of flimsy tree sticking out of rock*

        • Mark Sieverkropp

          I think this blog actually got MORE pithy in my absence…woooow, didn’t see that coming! Haha

  • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

    Wooohooo Amazon!!!! I think I’ll buy some good books!!!!!!! Thanks Chris!!

    • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

      Can you tell I’m excited? Dillanos just kicked in ;0)

    • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

      Books? Meh. I’m going with socks, cause that’s how I roll.

      • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

        As long as they’re cool-looking socks…

        • Mark Sieverkropp

          Please tell me theyre toe socks….

          • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

            Theyre toe socks

            • Laura Johnson

              HAHA!!

      • http://www.joshuarivers.net/ Joshua Rivers

        Oh, so you roll your socks?

        • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

          HA HA HA HA!!!!!

        • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

          To store them, yes. :)

    • http://caroldublin.com/ Carol Dublin

      Oh yeah. I’ll be getting books too – have built up quite a list lately! Now the problem will be finding the time to read them all!

      • Laura Johnson

        So totally!
        Same here :)

    • Mark Sieverkropp

      Me too! Wish I had a Kindle not a Nook…at least today!!

      • Laura Johnson

        I have neither…
        Feel blessed ;)

        • Mark Sieverkropp

          I always feel blessed :)

      • http://www.joshuarivers.net/ Joshua Rivers

        There is a Kindle app on iPhone

    • http://www.ChrisLoCurto.com Chris LoCurto

      Thank YOU!!

    • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

      Maybe some Dave Ramsey books?

      • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

        Oh I’ve got some great Dave Ramsey books already…

        • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

          This will probably get me booted off of Chris’ site, but I haven’t read EntreLeadership yet. It’s on my list though. That’s what I would get at Amazon!

          • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

            WHAT?! Just kidding!

            • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

              What can I say? This is an honest community, right? It’s on my list! I never miss a podcast if that counts for anything.

              • Laura Johnson

                Hey, don’t feel bad….I just finished EntreLeadership :)

                • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

                  Thanks, Laura. That makes me feel just a little bit better. What’s next on your reading list?

                  • Laura Johnson

                    Currently reading, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

                    • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

                      I’m currently reading Soul Detox by Craig Groeschel. But I’m looking for other leadership books as well. Obviously, I need to hit up EntreLeadership, but I like hearing what other people are reading along these lines.

          • Mark Sieverkropp

            No it won’t get you kicked off Jon. I followed Chris for like 3 months and the podcast for 5 before I read it ;)

            • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

              Thanks, Mark. What’s next on your reading list?

              • Mark Sieverkropp

                I just started reading the $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau. GREAT book so far! Definitely good so far!

                • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

                  I’ve heard good things about this one. Another book on my to-read list is Michael Hyatt’s Platform.

                  • Mark Sieverkropp

                    Platform is great. It’s good as a constant reference book!

  • http://twitter.com/Skropp2 Mark Sieverkropp

    Hey all! Congrats my friends! I’m still having daily issues. With Disqus, but trying to work through! Miss y’all! I’ll get back as often as I can and Disqus will let me!

    • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

      Hey, you made it to the top 10 without even commenting! That’s awesome!!!

      • http://bretwortman.com/ Bret Wortman

        Methinks he has a back door somewhere. Some Skroppy way of commenting that defies mere mortal understanding.

        • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

          I now have a picture in my head of “Skroppy Doo” Puppy Power!!!

          • http://bretwortman.com/ Bret Wortman

            Thanks, Lily. Now I have a mental image of Skroppy puppy doo and it has nothing to do with power….

            • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

              You started it!

            • Mark Sieverkropp

              HA! I may’ve dropped in the comment rank, but I’m still at the top of the list to take shots at!!

              • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

                He started it!

                • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

                  Wow. That’s just childish.

                  Blame it on @twitter-516773551:disqus – that’s more socially acceptable around these parts.

                  • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

                    Mooooooooom!

              • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

                I thought you couldn’t comment using your phone…

              • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

                You and @jwrivers:disqus

                Motion to…nah nevermind.

            • Laura Johnson

              You two literally made me laugh out loud!

              • http://bretwortman.com/ Bret Wortman

                Then I’m done for the month. Peace out!!

                • Laura Johnson

                  Sure ya are….. :)

        • Mark Sieverkropp

          Haha. A gentleman never tells Bret!

          • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

            Never thought of that, but now that you mention it…

    • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

      Seriously, congrats. We miss you!!!

    • http://www.ChrisLoCurto.com Chris LoCurto

      Glad to see you hangin’ in!!

      • Mark Sieverkropp

        It’s often just by a thread, but I am still hangin ;) glad you guys havent forgot me or voted me off the island :)

        • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

          That can always be arranged

          • Mark Sieverkropp

            That sounded like a threat… *sniff*tear* you guys haven’t changed a bit!

            • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

              I’d never said we would do it, I just said it could be arranged if that’s what you would like. :0)

            • Laura Johnson

              I would think you’d be glad we haven’t changed a bit… ;)

        • http://www.joshuarivers.net/ Joshua Rivers

          Thread…as in threaded comments?

          • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

            He’s wise like that. Hanging by a thread… “conversation thread”.

        • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

          Wow, the pun. The pun, boss, the pun.

          I thought you said “often just by the thread” meaning it sometimes works, it sometimes doesn’t. Brilliant.

    • http://caroldublin.com/ Carol Dublin

      Been missing your comments – hope you get the issues worked out.

      • Mark Sieverkropp

        Thanks Carol!!

    • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

      What did Disqus help have to say? They responded right away to my tweet and asked to report issues directly to them to see if they can figure it out. They thought it may be the theme causing some issues in certain devices.

    • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

      Welcome, new guy.

      • Mark Sieverkropp

        Thanks, Uhh…Matt is it? You must be the servant boy here? Stand at the door and welcome people? ;)

        • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

          Servant boy? What is this 1852?

          • Laura Johnson

            Mark thinks he’s in the 1800s because his iPhone won’t let him comment sometimes–poor guy

            • Mark Sieverkropp

              That’s right Laura! With my iPhone and Disqus fighting like siblings I feel like I’ve been thrown waaay back to like 2006! Haha

          • Mark Sieverkropp

            Maybe it is ;)

    • http://www.joshuarivers.net/ Joshua Rivers

      I’ll have to try commenting on my phone to see if I get issues, too. By the way, Matt has tried to kick me out of the tribe twice while you’ve been gone.

      • Mark Sieverkropp

        Some people will always be bullies.. Haha

        • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

          ROFL

      • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

        Only twice? Let me search the records. Could have sworn it was at least three times.

        • Mark Sieverkropp

          Matt I’m appalled that Chris denied you a “BAH!” for that comment, so I’ll step in…
          BAH!!!

          • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

            Woot. Needed that “bah” this morning!

            • Mark Sieverkropp

              My life’s goal is to simply be of service (may’ve a tad overstated, but mostly true!)

  • http://caroldublin.com/ Carol Dublin

    Awesome month of posts made even better by the insightful comments and conversations. Look forward to your posts every morning. Thanks for always making us think and congrats everyone! Thanks for the gift card too, Chris!

  • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

    I beat Dave Ramsey. I’m done and outta here. Dropping the mic like Eminem in 8 Mile and moving to Tahiti.

    Oh wait…still so much to learn. Guess I’ll stick around :)

    • http://www.ChrisLoCurto.com Chris LoCurto

      BAH!!!!! That’s awesome!!! Great job brother.

    • http://www.lilykreitinger.com/ Lily Kreitinger

      If you’d like we can bring you down a few notches with some “insightful comments” ;0)

      • http://bretwortman.com/ Bret Wortman

        Bwahahahaha! (shoots coffee out nose)

      • http://www.ChrisLoCurto.com Chris LoCurto

        BAH!!!

      • http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/ Matt McWilliams

        LOL!!!!!!!!!!

        Actually I think the insightful comments would bump it up higher :)

        I love insightful comments. I am writing a post about the very topic now. It’s how I learn.

        • Mark Sieverkropp

          Soooo it’ll be titled “Insightful Comments” and then I guess you’ll leave it blank after that??

          • Laura Johnson

            Man! You guys crack me up!!

      • Mark Sieverkropp

        Insightful? What happened to you people while I was gone??!??!!? Haha

        • http://www.indueseason.net skottydog

          what do you mean, “You people”? lol

    • Laura Johnson

      Congrats, Matt :)
