    Hi everyone. Just joined T1 today. I’m UK based and looking to start from the very beginning, complete all the courses, follow the program and hopefully get some results. Anyone in a similar position?

    • Hi Steven, welcome to T1. I signed up in August and still going through the Foundation course, i’ve got a busy 9-5 and family so it’s taking a while. Remember the 90 day planner is just a guide regarding timeframes, go through it at your own pace.
      It’ll all be worth it in a few years!

      • Thanks Peter. I know what you mean about balancing work & family. I’m actually between jobs at the moment, having a bit of a rethink, so thought it was a good time to take the plunge whilst I have a bit more time on my hands – although even not working at the moment there seems to be no shortage of things to take up my time!

    • Hi Steven. I’ve just joined today so I’m in the same boat as you! How has your first week been?

      • Hi Jane. I’ve been trying to immerse myself in as much as I can – joined a few live rooms and watched back some of the accountability sessions. Will try and catch the Q&A session on Monday. I think I will find these more when I know a bit more myself, so I have been trying to make some progress with the courses. I finished Emergence and Cornerstone pretty quickly as I already knew quite a bit of the real basics but didn’t want to just skip over them. I have taken away from these that I need to get more specific on my goals though. Once I am then I think i’ll pluck up the courage to do my first accountability session. I’m making a start on the Foundation course now so i’m expecting to start hitting new territory for me soon, which will be great.
        Good luck with your learning. There doesn’t seem to be a great deal of chat in these groups – more on the main homepage – but would be good to get a conversation going between a few of us new joiners

        • Hi guys, I’ve been on the platform for about 4/5 months so not too far ahead. Working my way through the courses around a busy work life and a small kid so I get the struggle with finding enough time in the day. Would be great to catch up with you all and chat about how everyone is getting on and maybe even work through some things together. would be good to get a nice little group together for some regular chats etc…

          • Hi Greg, hope you had a good Christmas and New Year. I’ve got my kids staying at their Granny’s tonight and feels strange that I have a full night to dedicate to studying! Hard to get up at 5.30am every day with small children up during the night. I’ve struggled to keep a routine in the last couple of months, how have you been finding the studying?
            I’d be keen to get something sorted where we can catch up and bounce things off each other. I’m sure there would be plenty of takers for that. Are you part of the Facebook group that Naomi helped set up? That can be good for posting questions etc.

            • Hi Peter, thanks for the response! Ye I know what you mean keeping a routine I feel the same. No I wasn’t aware of the FB group but would be keen to get involved! do you have the name of the group?
              I’ve found the course really good so far. I’ve just started backtesting coming into the new year. I think it might take me a little while though as I’m only able to get about 2-3 hours a day in and Jason suggested it could be around 20 hours per pair…
              How are you finding it so far? are you still powering through the foundation or are you up to 2.0 yet? if you have any questions feel free to get in touch and I’ll do my best to help you out!
