I hope I'm not being mean Greg but you sound like the kind of person who wants to read the magazine first before you buy it. sometimes it is better to just go with the flow. I think the seminars are a very good idea. Wish we could get one down here in TN or Ky.
No, not at all, littleoldlady. lol
Would you enter a restaurant not knowing what kind of food you will receive? I think not.
And reading a menu that describes each meal does not mean you get to sample what you are considering ordering!
True, a friend's recommendation might inspire you to try the restaurant itself, but would you then sit down and eat something you did not order? Of course not. You want to know exactly what you ordered, without of course, eating a sample that would fill you up before the meal comes.
So your example and assumption ("a person who wants to read the magazine first before you buy it") is incorrect and does not work here. Even magazine covers indicate what you can read about inside.
I am not disputing anyone's free choice here. I have paid $85. to $295. for a seminar or workshop or conference in my field but I first had an outline or short summary of the topic, in whole or even in part. That's all I'm saying.
All we have here is a magazine cover with the name of the seminar and directions how to get there. That might be enough for you, and for the others who have attended and have said very nice things. But it's not enough for me. That's all I have ever said.
I hope you can understand that before you make any more assumptions about me, lol.
