  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: I’ve done multiple Guided Reboots and in fact, just completed the previous 60 Day Guidrd Reboot. I tend to do well during the Reboot in terms of juicing and weight loss but backslide and eventually relapse into old ways after it is completed. I find the structure and daily support invaluable. I turn 60 in September and the effects of pre-diabetes and obesity are starting to take their toll on my body. I've dedicated this year to reclaiming my health. An added incentive is I am going on a service trip to Kashmir at the end of September and want to be in better physical shape.

    Part 2

    — I did wonder if some of the people who didn’t participate as much where adversely affected by those of us who were in a hybrid phase. Maybe they were in all juice and we 120 club people we’re trying to figure out whether we could have a piece of wedding cake.

    — I think it would be very worthwhile to discover whether those in phase 1 felt they benefited from the 120 club or whether it was distracting or out of sync.

    — my academic work is in the area leadership studies. We find that leadership is often a “ladder”. Does on the rung just above you are the most helpful to your development. (College students for high school students, young professionals for college seniors etc.) Perhaps the 120 club is somewhat like that

    —I think as the 120/180/360 Club Members continue there might need to be a discount in the fees. Research could show us that. I don’t think the discount should be taken from your compensation as it is essential that you are incentivized to continue to work as closely with all of us and I wouldn’t want to think you would work for me if you were paid less. That is I think the discount should come from the central reboot.

    — I don’t know a lot about the self-help movement but maybe we can learn from them. I think the people who have been involved in a long time become sponsors to newbies. I don’t think they charge fees but they seem to have robust organizations. I think Joe has started a movement and not just business and how do we employ the best of both worlds?

    —Lastly, maybe there is a private portal for the 120 club within the reboot? So if we want to talk about our exploration of a piece of chocolate cake we won’t have to infect the others. On the other hand maybe that helps everybody. I guess the self-help movement mixes up everybody

    Anyway, much appreciation or all you for us. I have dictated this so if there’s something that’s kind of off it’s the automatic spellcheck!

    Part 1

    Rhaya

    I am signing up again for the 120 club. Several people have messaged me about whether I found it worthwhile and I always say yes, but I think there are some issues for you and Reboot Central to consider.

    — I personally feel that such a big life change or health change intervention needs a longer time than 60 days.

    —That said, people who do multiple reboots non sequentially may find that works best for them.

    —I also remember one of our rebooters saying she was a slow starter )like me) and I wouldn’t want anyone to not jump into the first phase thinking I’ll just wait for the second 60 days

    — it strikes me that this extended model might be something like other self-help groups such as AA. People stay with AA for a lifetime I understand. I often felt in the 120 Club that I was a cheerleader or sponsor of the newbies. At times I felt like I should be paid as a junior coach! I did realize that helping others with my experience and “sobriety” was helping me just as much. Again kind of like the self-help model.

    All excellent points. I can see we have very similar thoughts. I offer support to others for my own recovery as well. It will be interesting to see if any action is taken on our suggestions.

    Excellent. I will try to find a letter I wrote too. Is “RM” Rhaya?

    Did you hear back from d vision makers? Or is that the one where they said they do have links for graduates? All rather anemic

    I met RM in a previous Reboot. I have not received any feedback just an acknowledgement the letter was received.

    Yeah. I listened to it when it was posted and it a hundred dollars for a prize for something. I decided 50$ a week was still worth it to stay sober, so to speak, but I want Joe to change the policy in future.

    Here is a copy of an email I sent to Reboot with Joe at the end of the last Reboot. I also sent it to Rhaya who forwarded to a decision maker.

    Hi,

    I wanted to offer you both feedback and recommendations.

    This was my 5th Guided Reboot (Four of which were the 60 Day Guided Reboot for Diabetes) Rhaya is a phenomenal coach and the primary reason I keep returning.

    One of the challenges I have experienced is sustaining the change process outside a structured Reboot. The community boards on Reboot with Joe are filled with enthusiastic members who are starting juicing but I have not found long-term members in ongoing conversation.

    My assessment is there is a real need for ongoing structured support that could be offered in one of two ways.

    I) Post “grad”membership site with a monthly membership fees with the following benefits:

    - Its own private message board

    - Exclusive content

    - Monthly webinars (Not necessarily a coach but a guest expert). Perhaps quarterly, Joe could interview a expert guest and excerpts could be used for further social media promotions.

    - Discounts for future guided Reboots.

    2) Another option is offering a discount for signing up for back-to-back guided Reboots or as Rhaya has called it “The 120 Club”. I had found there is benefit to people new to rebooting when a guided Reboot has a few veterans in it. It would also help your organization fill up a Guided Reboot with a low enrollment. In my experience, Guided Reboots with high numbers of participants tend to remain more active through the entire duration.

    Thank you for the invaluable support you offer.

    Warm Regards,

    Cindy Schell

    @ Cindy, your letter and suggestions are brilliant, full of Best Practice business tips. I hope they seriously evaluate these businss models and put them into practice real soon. Do let me know their response. Thank you for taking the time to do this.

    @Cindy. Excuse me for butting in but, not that the site does not have programming problems (like spam and inconsistencies from page to page) -- it's neglected pretty much. But we ARE over on the reboot groups part of the site. There are a good many long term members there engaging in conversation. All groups seem welcome to me and you do not have to be in sync with your reboot. If you want, try one of these groups out:

    Not that those are the only groups. There's a 100 lb group that I did not get into my photo, for instance, and some geographical groups.

    Btw, I agree with Rhaya— you would be a terrific future reboot coach

    Thank you for the compliment. I actually completed a 6 month training in something called Somatic Coaching (involves working with the felt sense of the body) a year ago. I have been dragging my feet about opening a practice.

    I didn’t hear something on yesterday’s webinar : did Rhaya say the fee for renewing 120 Club is only $100? Or was I dreaming?

    Hi Cindy. I think I remember you purchased a vegan protein powder from Epic. Is that correct? If so, how is their protein powder? Is it gritty or does if blend up pretty smooth? I do not like the powder from Joe, it is way too gritty for my palate so I am looking for alternatives.

  • Cindy

    Cathy- I've not tried Joe's brand so I cannot compare them. Epic has a bit of chalky after taste like with the Naked Juice brand protein drink. I wouldn't say it taste gritty though. I think I have an expectation I am going to taste it a little. I you find a brand you like please let me know! Take care, Cindy
