As a contributing member and now, a moderator, your wisdom, experience and perspective was and will be much appreciated.
You know, sometimes there're things that you shouldn't put into writing. I had ran into this while doing a search for what I don't remember. I said to myself "hey isn't he a regular poster".
Anyways, I can see the similarities between lectures & being a moderator. What I don't see is how in the world you can fit it all into your day. Plus, I presume you have a job. Congrats if you can do all that. My caveat would be to pace yourself & not get burned out.
On a different track. I personally would like to see a strategy of getting this forum in front of more men
A local guy advertising on the radio for erectile treatments says there is 3 million cases of ED every year. I'm guessing that a significant number of them are not happy with the diagnosis. Other wise why would they be at the doctors office getting a diagnosis?
Dave, a fair warning. I just might message you on some ideas to accomplish that.
My own doctor, a nice guy. That had prescribed pills for me. Never really brought up an implant that I recall. These general practitioners are the front line. Not the urologists. The implant manufacturers appear to be not contacting them as much as they should. My Dr. knows that implants have a high satifaction rate. Seems to of heard of Dr. Karpman even though Karpman is nearly a 1,000 miles away. But doesn't know about a local Dr that does them.
This sure seems like an omission of coverage that sorely needs coverage IMHO.
Anyways, good luck.
To address a few of your points, I no longer have a job per se. i liquidated a sign company I owned most of my life at age 58 and retired. I apprenticed into the trade 40 years ago when the number one requirement was to have artistic vision and innate talent. In 1983 that went out the window with the advent of computerized sign making equipment. If you could type and afford the equipment you could make signs. The world has since unknowingly suffered from a lack of effective design in favor of cookie cutter production. I do however have a hobby business with my wife. I hand letter small interior decor signs we sell at weekend craft fairs.
The seminars I speak at are spaced far enough apart that it doesn’t resemble anything like regular employment. As for any risk of burning out... that usually is a result of mind numbing repetitive tasks that hold little fascination. Moderating a few FT forums is a world away from mind numbing. This is a very unique place. The culture here is very open and, well... frank. The help we all provide each other goes beyond the beyonds. We’re participating in the premier men’s forum on the internet. The inclusion factor here could be a model for society at large.
I’m interested in any advice anyone can provide me for things to present at seminars. If you want to talk personally shoot me a PM and I’ll give you my phone number. I actually take more phone calls from men referred to me by doctors and company reps than the number of seminars I do each year.
