If you know a scuba diver and you DO NOT dive, then you DO NOT know anything about scuba!
If anyone is going to offer you advice about one of the most dangerous sports in the world, DO NOT listen to them...!!!

So, I just met with a young man that just moved to the Portland area. He wants to continue his scuba diving education. I told him about my program and what I'd offer him and if he wanted a mentor in diving, and would help find me business, I would compensate him all the while he could learn for free.
He had an appointment at 2pm so had to leave and right after he did, two women started to ask me what I was selling? I told them I wasn't selling anything. Then they proceeded to tell me what I should not talk about when with a customer/student/client! I started to pack up my stuff immediately while telling them they had no idea what they were talking about.
Someone else that was in that area heard what they were saying to me and as he was leaving said to the two that they had no idea what they were talking about, either!
Before I left, the last thing they said was that they have family who dive! Hallelujah! I've finally found out what the secret to scuba diving is that I've been without for the last 11 years and 1,738 dives!
I shouldn't have spent my money on training, experience, travel, and put my life in the hands of students, divers, and dive professionals, rather, I only had to KNOW someone who dives and that would have satisfactorily been all that I needed to know.
Where the hell have those two been all my life? Just imagine all the things I could have done if I had only known more people that did the activities that I've always wanted to do...
Skydiving, flying an airplane, astronaut, Olympic athlete, recording artist, movie star, etc...
Holy shit! Is anyone out there a doctor? I always wanted to be a doctor! Please post in the comments below what you do so that I will instantly know everything you do about what you are an expert in!
It will be a pleasure to meet you!
P.S. my new program will only be an introduction. once someone meets me they are ready to dive. I'm really excited about this new chapter in my life!
Scuba lessons for the beginner should cost more and less as one continues. Don't over pay for Divemaster training.
I recently got a call from a prospective Divemaster student. During the discussion, he asked why dive shops charge so much for their Divemas...
