Re: How Does Anyone Afford CF?

I'd be very surprised if an LLC cost you $50 to set up. When I set up a sole proprietorship in California last year -- an even simpler form of business -- it probably ended up close to $1,000 once...

Re: How Does Anyone Afford CF?

Hey, I get it. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't share our interest as datapoints regardless.

Re: How Does Anyone Afford CF?

I don't think anyone here has been talking about entitlement. Even if they were, it doesn't change the validity of the original message... which is just that there are some of us going "hi, we're...

Re: How Does Anyone Afford CF?

Once to CFSC. I couldn't afford it compared to my free university gym, which was high-quality. Hence my suggestions here.

Re: How Does Anyone Afford CF?

Steven has the idea here.

Look, I don't know how large of a contingent we are -- people who basically want an affiliate as "a gym." But I'm saying we do exist, so to the extent that "the market...

Re: How Does Anyone Afford CF?

Good point. And good link Jeremy.

Perhaps this would help. To the affiliates: if I say this to you, what do you say? "Gosh, that's a lot of money. I can get a membership at the local Y for $40 a...

Re: How Does Anyone Afford CF?

What I'm getting at would be more like group lessons -- true group lessons, not the sort of hybrid semi-personal training that affiliates seem to be going for. Or something like that plus the "open...

Re: How Does Anyone Afford CF?

Re: How Does Anyone Afford CF?

This is not meant to be an insult to anyone here. (I'm not going to fall over myself repeating that either, though.)

I think that part of the problem some CFers have with paying affiliate fees may...
