    This is a great lesson for all of us. Sometimes its not worth it to spend time on small little things. Instead, think BIG and go BIG!

    Extraordinary. Makes me sad that even at BHW 99% will never get what she got.

    The way to make success is to get some investors,which I'm pretty sure 99.9% of BHW wont get. Do you guys really think Google would be around still if the two co founders had not gotten that venture capitalist to help them?

    That is true but it´s still totally wrong.

    All these people are not successful cos of luck or venture capital. That might help. As well as partnerships and good advisors.

    But the point is these people are there to render a better service than anyone else on the market in their area, they are determined and love what they´re doing. They think about this 24/7. Live and breath it. Probably never download warez porn or waste time in forums.

    That´s the difference compared to some people setting up autoblogs to steal a few adsense cents.

    It´s all in the mind.

    And with that you automatically attract investors especially today.

    To me autoblogs are not good for the long term. They are great for getting capital to fund your long term projects.
