    One of my favorite examples I’ve heard of lately for how to create a product is a combo of 4 and 7. It isn’t 24 hours but nevertheless, it is intriguing. It’s called “The Becoming Process”.
     
    I learned this from Chet Womack’s presentation at Yanik Silver’s Underground Seminar. He talked about how his first product was a set of videos of him going from not even being able to approach his mom’s giant bird – to training it to do tricks. It was the documented process of him going from being clueless and getting attacked by the bird to becoming one step closer to being a bird whisperer and on the back of this training he has rolled this into a very nice business for himself.
     
    This “becoming” concept, for someone committed to putting together a product, takes away the biggest obstacle of, “What can I sell that will be of interest?”
     
    What Chet found when he looked for products on how to train his bird was that all of them were coming from the premise that the bird already loved you and didn’t want to bite your face off. This left the big gaping opening for him to step into for the people who were starting from zero like him. It also allowed him to address a much wider and profitable market – beginners.
     
    This is something I advise all my clients to be conscious of – who can they help more – people seeking wisdom (beginners) or people who have the knee-jerk response of “I know that already” (experts)?
     
    And what’s cool is that this “Becoming Process” carries over to any niche, and if it isn’t you “Becoming” you can document the process of someone you’re mentoring “Becoming”.

    Ray, thanks for the resource on converting tapes to audio. I recently needed to do this same thing for a move overseas. This would have been a great option…as it was I bought a product off of Amazon that did the converting, then turned around and sold it as a used unit and recouped $90 of my $112. So the out of pocket cost was minimal…of course I still had the time invested. But it worked great for what I needed. 
    Love the podcasts!
