    Just wondering how many if any of you run your cpa accounts by yourself etc. Basically is there anyone here who actually works on their own and make money? NO JV No Team members to split the money with?

    If you want stuff done right, you gotta do it yourself!

    Cept for the things that can easily be outsourced.

    I work 100% by myself Most of people I know who are doing CPA work 100% by themselves.

    Exactly.

    I'm a perfectionist and I don't trust anyone to do anything the correct way. :cool:

    If you guys are happy, great, but if you're doing it for the money, you're being left in the dust. Did Bill Gates build Microsoft by himself? NO. Richard Branson with Virgin? NO. Steve Jobs with Apple? Nope.

    There's only 24 hours in a day, no one can know AND do it all.

    Best of luck everyone.

    Well, you're right. It's just way more efficient for me to work on my own because I'm on a more advanced level than anyone I know. I would just be wasting my time and money trying to explain and teach things to them.

    I have never come across anyone with a work ethic equal to mine. When I do, I will no longer be working solo. ;)

    I work on my own, but do have a number of friends here and we all bounce ideas off of each other.

    I definitely feel that having people to do this with is an advantage to anyone in IM.

    I've tried to do some JV but haven't earned a single dime from em. However from my own ventures and the products I made I think i've made over 300$ in the last 6 months, it's not much but it's something.

    Working solo but a partner would be great, mainly for the motivation. Would have to be someone I know irl though.

    All on my own here as well - would like to get people close to bounce ideas off but in my immediate area I can't think of anyone who falls into that catagory :(

    My wife is starting to show an interest in these things so hopefully we will partner up one day :)

    No game - no blame - you screw it - you lose it - you blame -who? - Oh -that's right - yourself

    on the other hand - 'together we stand divided we fall' crosses thy brain

    I am not aware of too many successful JV's as what I have heard of is a lot of deals going sour when all that really happened was neither party was as active as needed to make it work and blamed the other for the failure, or one party bulled the other into believing they had either the resources or skills to make it work whn they didn't

    As for workin on our own - In a way we are all workin for each other when we share online and against each other in the serps or ppc's or where ever

    I keep in mind the fact that Internet marketing has THE highest dropout and failure rate of ANY industry (99% of all who try give up in the first 12 months)

    So - what we have here (at BHW) is very unique - A lot of us are still tryin to make bank over a year later -and could not have continued trying if it were not for the vast resources here at BHW - -and would have lost motivation to continue also - if it were not for BHW - so

    Are we working alone???

    In retrospect -after having just written up this post - I don't think ANY person on this forum can actually claim that

    What may be a truer statement is "how many of you THINK you are working by yourself and do not recognize where your help comes from"???

    I do not believe true one man bands exist

    Even Donald Trump will tell you he has needed a LOT of people to get to where he is today
