People who have webinars come together mastermind and so on, and then ongoing. I saw where Anik had a guest on where He was had somebody at his Lurn Center presenting I think was Ty Cohen. And that’s it was Ty Cohen and had his Kindle cashflow event there. And I reached out to him asking, you know, initially it was about finding out if what it would take to get his learning center to do a live event based around what I was already doing. And at the same time, he responded to me and said, Hey, Ron Douglas is also interested in our this event for the same kind of reason. You guys should chat.
