If your current financial experience is less than that of an empowering child with a strong desire for a shiny new bike, it means your power is rather weak. So how can you benefit from a course that requires a certain minimum level of power to benefit from it.
What you're asking is akin to opening up an advanced yoga class to people who've never done yoga before. That is not a good fit and is only going to frustrate people.
The price is only an obstacle if it's supposed to be an obstacle.
The only reason you enjoy financial success is because of your customers. The people who read your articles and purchase the products that you create and recommend. People like myself, and others on this forum. If tomorrow no one was behind you, you would be back at where you were at running Dexterity Software. Oddly enough, I still remember some of the articles you wrote back then. And Dweep, for that matter. It wasn't that long ago.
We're offering you honest feedback about the price of a DVD set. If I believe that the price of a product is out of line with the value it offers me, then I'm not going to buy it. Many other people wouldn't buy it either. This isn't because we're suffering from some financial illness. It's because we're intelligent consumers. We won't buy something if we believe it's overpriced.
Certainly, you could just say "next", and sell the DVD set to the other 500 hundred customers who are waiting in line. Certainly there are many people who would buy the set for $300 dollars. Or you can decide, instead, to shoot for the masses. You can decide to raise the consciousness of the whole planet, instead of only a few hundred individuals.
Quite frankly, I feel you're thinking too small. Would you rather sell the DVD set to 500 people, or would you rather sell the set to 500,000 people? Not only are you pricing out the exact customers who need your product the most, but you're limiting your own financial abundance.
Just my opinion, of course. I wouldn't want to speak out too much against the all mighty Steve.
