man....i am sorry to have come to this cynical conclusion of the human species but most are idiots when it comes to business. I was talking to a friend of mine at the weekend and he's into alarm systems for businesses and individuals and the stories he told me about the "average Joe" made me laugh and simply reinforced what I already know. Most people are stupid, liars, bone idle and cheats. i remember in the old days when i sold products on ebay...and the remarks, chargebacks, complete B*S* you are dealing with daily is mind boggling. then with my own products...the emails I receive daily from people leave me shaking my head. Full of spelling errors, typos, swearing, demanding, hysterical. people who think $200 is a fortune or demand I phone them up at 1:00 am and resolve this issue right away. sadly paypal side with them and they know this. the Internet seems more of the "ghetto" than a serious business medium these days. i feel sorry for some of the people that email me. They aren't college punks, hobos, druggies etc but 50+ year old "working class." i mean i am not condoning any scams at all ...but to be fair anyone with an ounce of common sense and some business acumen simply would never fall for it. But there you go. Point proved. Everyone says "90% of new businesses fail" to be fair its' not the business idea its-self it's the person running it. Most people have no business trying to run a business i.m.h.o. they haven't got the basic fundamental understanding of how it is done. Never mind big business. I guess people who have never tried to run a real business have no idea. then they are fed B*S* about making $40k month guaranteed no risks etc...EVERY business has risks and losing periods. i hav seen contract for over $77 million dollars (no i didn't close it) but i am saying I have seen huge deals in a B2B arena and it's a completely different ball game to selling C.B. shit to the ghetto's. B2B to me is a much better environment. $50m is nothing as long as you do as you say and there are safe-guards in place. Kind of makes that $29 e-book selling game a waste of time. Look at companies in the physical oil trading arena. deals in excess of $75m+ are common and billion dollars of turnover. Huge B.2.B. markets is where the big money is. Keep dealing with the "ghetto gangs" and unemployed, stay at home $1k a month crowdwill you ever get there? Might go mad first? I guess I have become jaded and burnt out from dealing with retail....it seems to small, petty and most of the time laughable. why do it? why sell on ebay and have a lifetime of frustration from customers? Or sell on c.b for a few $k month and deal with retail? It's a very tough arena. "you can't get rich selling homes to the homeless" Rant over. Good luck.
