I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA and this week each year Albuquerque is host to the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.
If you want a live “taste” there is usually a launch each morning around 7 AM Mountain time and frequently an evening “balloon glow” that are equally spectacular.
Here is the live feed link.
There is something surreal about being on a field the size of multiple football fields and seeing hundreds of balloons launched in waves with the only noise being the “oohs and ahhs” of the crowd and the short bursts from the individual burners which power the balloons and send them aloft.
Nothing quite like it that I’ve ever experienced.
After 30 years in Albuquerque, it’s still a thrill. If you ever have occasion to visit, look me up and let me know you found me on IBO and I’ll be happy to give you a short overview of where to go and what to do in Albuquerque.
Meanwhile back at “the toolbox” I’ve been publishing the weekly recap of the “Featured Member of the Day” for 305 weeks.
Every week some of the featured members are relatively new to IBO and some are IBO veterans.
If you are not aware, an algorithm determines who the featured member of the day is each day. It’s not a popularity contest or something you can purchase.
The Featured Member of the Day (FMOTD for short) earns the recognition by being significantly active on the platform for a period of time.
Active in the 5 areas that IBO awards stars in.
The FMOTD is unique among social media platforms. You won’t see an equivalent anywhere else that I know of.
If you want more specifics, Kris Karafotas has written a nice resource post “How to become the IBOToolbox Featured Member of the Day”.
For the week ending 10-5-2019, the 7 Featured Members of the Day (along with links to their profiles) were…
Reach out and say hello to every one of them. Let ‘em know I sent you :)
Looking forward to seeing YOU featured sometime soon

PS - I’m “all in” with Russell Brunson and the ClickFunnels team and (of course) I need customers BUT I REALLY need people looking to build their own business as affiliates (and you can do that totally for free) - Take the 2 week free trial (so you know what we sell) but if you don’t have the budget (or the time) to use the program yourself cancel during the free trial and you’ll still be in business with me and I have LOTs of leads (more than I can follow up on)
