My merchandise sucks… do you agree?

Category : Uncategorized

I got some private feedback that came in the form of a comment, but I felt that it was really meant to be a private message to me, so I didn’t post it. The feedback said, basically: “your shirts and merchandise suck. The quality is crap. You’re making money off the back of 4hww. Outsource it, loser.” Or something like that.

I put the merchandise together as a revenue supplement to my muse, but not as a main source of income. And, yes, it is meant to augment the 4HWW book, but certainly, not profit off it directly. If you click on the Amazon.com links and buy the book, OK, then I’m profiting off it directly, but who doesn’t do that?

The shirts and hats are meant to be comical, light hearted self-association with the ideals proposed by 4HWW. But I made careful decisions to avoid any use of intellectual property, trademark, or copyright owned by 4HWW or Tim Ferriss. Yes, I could have them professionally made, but that’s not the point… the point is to show how this is a muse and self-identify.

Well, that’s just my opinion. I want to know yours. Do they really suck? If I made them better, would you buy them anyways? Applying Tim Ferris’ ideals… I won’t ask IF you would buy, I will ask you TO buy. That’s straight from Tim’s words in the Income Autopilot chapter (I can’t find the page right now… if you can, let me know!). If you like something, then buy it… I will take that as a vote in favor. If you don’t offer me $25 and a suggested design. If I like the design, I’ll go forward with it and take your offer. If not, I won’t take your offer. Nothing gained, nothing lost.
