    For the guys that have been doing this for awhile, if you were just starting out today, with all that you know now what would you have done differently in IM? What were you biggest mistakes? How did you lose the most money? We always hear about huge success, how about some failures??

    I would have come right to BHW instead of screwing around over on WF for a year.

    lol, I think that's a good advice. I have read so much about negative about Warrior forum that I have yet to visit. I don't chase every shiny or unshiny thing, so I'm sticking to BHW for sure.....and actually that's good advice. If I would have came here directly, I would have saved a lot of time f*ckin' around with cashcrate!!! lol.

    I would never spend big ticket money on courses. Spent $2 k alone on Arbitrage Conspiracy. To this day I want to throw up thinking about it. The guru who hyped this to me was noticably silent when I complained that I couldn't get my money back. The most useless course (online and offline) I have ever done.

    Nearly didn't learn my lesson and signed up for another big ticket item due to recommendations of other high profilers ( gurus). Thought the better of after the first payment and thank god for that as everyone has complained no end about it. All courses are only the copywriter's sayso. Good copywriting does not equal good course. There are a lot out there that regurgitate over and over the same the same course to suck in the next sucker.

    Stick to one thing at a time. Focus on it, finish it and profit.
    It all boils down to good old fashioned work to get yourself established. When established you can bring in the outsourcers to build it up. So no magic secrets ....just hard work and focus will bring results.

    Don't look for the next shiny object. Its just another way of procrastinating. Pick one method and bring it to fruition. If that doesn't work then pick another until you find one that works for you. Then stick to it for as long as it is profitable.

    I would come to this forum way sooner.

    About business - I would slow down and really take care of every next step I was doing...
