Well, allow me to start off by saying that I'm a nineteen year old kid who, after investing some money into tools for making, ranking, publicizing, etc. adsense blogs, realized that I made a huge mistake when I caught a glimpse of the potential in offline marketing. The reason I'm requesting guidance is basically because I know that at the ripe age of nineteen, I'm not apt to making as rational and well thought out business decisions as I would be if I were a bit older and wiser. What I want to know is if you guys can share experiences you had when you first got into the offline game; where you may have rushed into some things when you should have formed a more complete strategy. Or maybe even some decisions that, despite ample planning, just merely didn't work out as expected. I don't want it to seem like I'm asking you to plan my business out for me, and I think many other members could benefit from just a few words of wisdom as well.
