Why join 5000bc?
On this page you can meet real people and read their stories and testimonials. And find out what is so unique about 5000bc.
Read the testimonials below. You’ll see exactly what I mean.
-Fire Starter 🙂
If you want to be ethical as well as successful in your business, you will absorb a lot of this (practical stuff, not just philopsophy) in 5000bc.
(And if you want to be more integrated in your business, more yourself – which equates to more relaxed, more productive, generally happier – then you can pick this up from Sean & 5000 BC too).
Psychotactics is about Sean offering himself and his business as a model for you. And 5000BC is the heart of Psychotactics. It’s where everyone who wants to learn more, hangs out.
It’s not that Sean is any sort of guru or master, self-proclaimed or otherwise. But he practices mastery, and that is something much more intriguing. Sean is a master of mastery, if you like. And it’s something that you can have, too.
Help, information, support
If you approach 5000BC as a source of information, well, you will get lots of that, in-depth and top quality too. Sean regularly posts stuff that he later goes on to develop into paid information products, on all sorts of topics.It includes information about setting up a business and marketing it, as well as all the bits and pieces that go into it: putting a website together, writing your sales page, developing your business strategy.But it doesn’t stop there… the most recent “Vanishing Report” was on how to take better photos with your iPhone. (Sean reduced it down to 3 simple, effective tweaks – complete with illustrations, of course.)
I’d say it’s worth joining, just for the information. But there is more…
I’ve learned a lot from the discussions on 5000BC. People ask questions, about their business and all sorts of other things, and I’ve found I can often learn more from these discussions than from a finished instructional report. That’s because you get the full process, not just the finished result. And for me, that’s a much better way to learn & understand something.
There is also a huge amount of guidance and support, from Sean and others, for specific issues you might have about your business and other things as well. If you have questions or want some feedback or support, it’s all available.
Learning through modelling
However, the part that has been most value for me has been the way Sean offers himself up as a model to copy (or modify with your own tweaks). This applies to 5000BC and also to all of the Psychotactics courses (which you will have inside access to, as a 5000BC member).
So here are some of the things you can learn if you approach 5000BC in this way
Sean is a superb teacher – and if you want you can model him and get some of this for yourself: some great ideas about how to teach just about anything.
How to manage your time and energy productively. Sean talks a lot about this, and again, it is mostly stuff he shares about his own process, and what works for him. You might not want to be even half as productive as Sean – his output is truly amazing – but being more efficient has advantages in just about anything you do. And you might find that other strategies work better for you. But you’ll get a lot of ideas about not only specific strategies, but the process as well.
How to stay in integrity in your marketing & your business. Integrity has a lot of connotations and they all fit. It includes the meaning of “ethical”, and going a bit deeper, it is related to the word “integrated” which is a good thing to be too. If you want to be ethical as well as successful in your business, you will absorb a lot of this (practical stuff, not just philopsophy). And if you want to be more integrated in your business, more yourself – which equates to more relaxed, more productive, generally happier – then you can pick this up from Sean & 5000 BC too.
How to use mistakes and feedback to improve your business (or your skill or implementation of anything at all). One of the fascinating things about Sean is that he is completely transparent about everything he does, and shares his mistakes – and how he is working on them. In 5000BC it’s implicit, since your level of participation is up to you. It’s a principle that underpins 5000BC and everything in Psychotactics.
Sean leads by example… he talks about the things he has done right, and the things he has done wrong, and how he has corrected as he gone along. And it’s an ongoing process – I can guarantee that right now (or at some point today – depending on your time zone) Sean is working on improving something, whether it is a piece of writing, a cartoon, a course, or something else.
And because he freely shares his own process, you become more confident about experimenting, making mistakes yourself and learning from them. It’s a simple principle but don’t be fooled – most of us need to be reminded over & over again. Once you get that, the sky is truly the limit… you will discover you can fly!
You don’t have to join 5000BC to learn all of these things – maybe you can get them somewhere else. But they are hard to find, and harder to maintain for yourself.
In business and especially in marketing, I found I was surrounded by people whose core belief and goal is to make more money with less work.
Expertise is packaged as an instant commodity, available on purchase of some e-book or video course. It’s hard to resist the lure of this mindset when you are exposed to it so continuously!
Integrity is powerful stuff, and it sends a clear note out into the world. 5000BC is a community of people who have resonated to this note, and they make it easier to choose integrity for yourself.
I’ve found a lot of value in all of these different aspects of 5000BC. And I haven’t anywhere near explored all of it yet. The gold for me, however, is in being exposed to the practice of mastery and learning how to apply it for myself.
It was hard for me to put in words why I was attracted to 5000BC or what I wanted from it, until I started to understand this. The benefits people talked about didn’t really explain it, for me. But once I realised that there is a ton of deeper stuff that I really, really want, then it all made sense.
So if this resonates with you, give it a go.
There is a lot of stuff on offer: great marketing and business information, community support, personal advice.
And the opportunity to learn about and practice mastery in all sorts of different ways.
When I first saw the link to 5000bc, I skipped right over it. ‘Fluff,’ I thought.
So what got me to sign up? I wanted to ask Sean some marketing questions directly. I figured it would be worth slogging through the other posts just to read what Sean would say.
Boy, was I surprised?
Not only did Sean respond immediately, but the quality of the other member’s comments and posts was top shelf. The answers to my first question alone were worth the membership fee.
My biggest issue, beside the feeling of being uncomfortable sharing thoughts online, was the language barrier. My language is German. Once I joined, I found that the language barrier was not so much an issue as I thought it might be.
I am not much of a forum type of person. Before 5000bc, I joined a few private Facebook groups of other online marketers, but I never got much out of it.
I now had reached a point where I knew, that I would need more support from other people with somewhat the same goals.
So when I stumbled over your podcast and 5000bc my biggest issue, beside the feeling of being uncomfortable sharing thoughts online, was the language barrier since my language is German.
A couple of weeks after joining 5000bc, together with three other members, we set up a private mastermind group.
Now we meet via Skype on a regular base. This was something I wanted to do for quite some time, but didn’t know where to find the right persons to team up with. Luckily 5000bc solved that for me.
The language is not so much an issue as I thought it might be.
Actually, it is quite some fun for me also to improve my languages skills.
The second result of my membership is that it really speeded me up moving forward and reaching my goals.
The specific feature do I like most about this 5000bc—The possibility to get specific questions answered not only from you but also from others.
Three other benefits about 5000bc:
– The ton of information that is not only to be found in the forum but also in the series and reports.
– The taking action forum
-The great crowd of people.
Yes, I would recommend 5000bc.
For me working in a very technical area, it is very easy to access technical information. But getting great support with marketing questions is something very valuable.
I've never been part of any kind of forum, so I didn't really know what to expect. I didn't know if something like this would help me with my business.
I also didn’t quite know how little or how much of my time (I didn’t have much to spare) I would need to spend to get the benefits.
I resent any big groups because I am easily intimidated by people so not knowing who else was part of it, I wasn’t too sure if I would be able to handle group discussions.
As a result of joining 5000bc
- First of all, it felt so welcoming. I got an instant feeling of warmth in the emails, which I got every day in the first week of joining.
- Every new email which would come through felt like it was pointed out to me and precisely to my problems and needs.
- I instantly got a great gut feeling that my words/feelings/vulnerability was going to be heard and acknowledged and importantly helped. I soon realized that there were many others going through or could relate from their past of exactly what I was going through.
- I always got a response from someone which gave me a great sense of empathy which is actually quite hard to find on the daily basis.
The specific feature I liked most about 5000bc
I literally can ask any question about the business, and there was an answer/response to help me and guide me in steps. Not big steps but little steps which I can only cope with.
I love all the articles Sean has written about all kinds of stuff. I am absorbing all the information and guidance like a dried up sponge!
—You can be part of other posts in a very friendly/welcoming manner.
—On point (no gibberish). Very just black and white, which I like.
I would absolutely recommend 5000bc
At any stage of your business life, you can continue to learn and develop your skills, and you can help others with your knowledge.
It’s a very give and given feel on this forum and it’s great to have a safe place where as a business owner more often than not you feel so alone battling this challenge/journey, it’s nice to have people who make you feel like you’re not alone.
Thank you for your kindness and for leading us by example of how to still have a life besides your business!
The members of 5000bc are what make the cave so warm and pleasant. There are people from every field who are members of the Cave.
Programmers, Designers, Writers, Bed Store owners, Salesmen – almost everyone you can think of. The wide experience of people present in the cave have led to some great conversations and brain storming sessions.
The Cave is one of the best places for virtual masterminding you’ll find online.
I appreciate that people in 5000bc get priority for signing up for courses.
I hate waiting. When I want to do something, I want to do it NOW.
It’s one of the reasons why I am a solo entrepreneur, there is no one else I have to ask to get permission to move ahead. I work in an industry that is highly regulated that has very distinct ways things are done. I chauff under those restrictions.
Can you imagine my frustration when I had to pay $10 and then wait 21 days before I could join 5000bc? That crazy man from Psychotactics was making me wait! Aaargh! I almost made the mistake of hitting the back button and moving along. I was so glad that I didn’t.
The $10 was such a low cost barrier that I paid it and then forgot I was on the list until the goodies showed up.
With each goodie, I started to anticipate being a member even more. This is also my second time being a member of 5000bc.
There are three main things I like about being back.
—The community. Some of the people I interacted with several years ago are still very active members of the community. It’s like rediscovering old friends that you haven’t talked to in a while and being able to just pick up the friendship again. I love reconnecting with them and finding that 5000bc has been filled with a bunch more people who are just as helpful and friendly.
—Nothing changed. While I was away, I still was listening to the Three Month Vacation which meant that while I wasn’t inside the forum I was still getting a dose of Psychotactics during my morning walks. Sean has a way of interweaving what he’s newly created as well as reminding me of all the good stuff I’ve invested in previously. Just hearing him talk about topics, encourages me to dive back into all the good stuff I’ve invested in over the years. It’s all good. Old and new.
—Sean every day in the forum. I so appreciate this.
The specific feature I like most about 5000bc is:
Discovering conversations that Sean is having with other members that are applicable and beneficial to me. When I discover a thread started by another person in the cave, it’s like unwrapping a gift with a gem in it. The gift was intended for Susie (who asked the question) but I still get the benefit. I can still use it to help me in my business, in my writing and giving me another angle to my thinking on a topic.
Two other benefits:
1) Taking Action Forum
I have a love hate relationship with the ‘Taking Action Plans’. I love seeing and supporting people as they make progress on their projects. I also love taking a project and getting help and support from people in the Cave and Sean as I bring it to completion.
I hate the gentle nugging I get from fellow Cave members when I stop making progress on or abandon TAPs. When I am working alone at home on my projects there is no one that notices or calls me out when I abandon a project.
Starting a TAP forces me to be honest about what I am up to.
It also forces me to be honest about changing priorities. And finally, it forces me to give myself grace when I shift directions. There’s no one that points fingers and I appreciate that. They just wish me well.
2) Vanishing Reports
Downloaded the Vanishing Reports that were still available that I didn’t have. There is gold in those reports.
I do and have recommended 5000bc.
On a personal note, I appreciate that people in 5000bc get priority for signing up for courses.
Getting the email from Renuka that I was going to be one of the people who would be able to join the upcoming Landing Page course was such a relief. I hadn’t realized that I was concerned until I got the email. Knowing that Psychotactics courses often sell out in less than 30 minutes, I was actually anxious that I would get busy and miss the notice to sign up the day the registration for the course opened up. I had even put a reminder on my phone to watch for the email on February 27th. It was that important to me to be in the course.
Why did you decide to return to 5000bc?
I am been in several entrepreneur groups filled with quite a few coaches. One of the first things they tell you to do is raise your prices. Without looking at current pricing of 5000bc, I had assumed that Sean had followed the “internet” philosophy of raising prices. But cumulation of listening to The Three Month Vacation on those morning walks, had me check out the landing page for 5000bc. I was pleasantly surprised at how it continued to be affordable. Since I already knew the value of the forum, the affordability made it an immediate yes for me. I just hated that I had to wait again. 🙂
I am generally a lurker in most forums I am part of.
Renuka asking me to buddy another person who was doing her first TAP caused me to drop in more often. I didn’t want her to need support or encouragement and me not be in the forum.
Being a member of 5000bc has the added benefit of making me think about how I could implement a similar support system in my business and in my upcoming course. That is a recurring theme in my interactions with Psychotactics. I see Sean do something and I start to think and wonder how I can do something similar in my business. Finally, I jokingly wonder if Sean has a camera that is watching me all the time. He seems to have a knack for coming out with a new course at exactly the same time I am thinking I need help on a topic. It’s uncanny.
