I don't know why, but I just felt of writing this. I have talked to a number of newbies in the past 72 hours, and what I see is that they are mostly spending away and then feeling bad. One guy who talked to me on AIM yesterday bought the SSM because he wanted to make some money. He was then figuring out how to run it on his Mac. I told him to download a Win XP torrent from piratebay and run it on vmware, he doesn't even know what is a torrent. 15 minutes later he told me he paid $38 to join piratebay - I was like WTF. Many of the newbies around think that they can only get started if they start spending - that's a myth. You need to spend time looking at the product, comparing it with other alternatives, and making sure you know what the product is about and how to use it. Things like xrumer are adult toys, and it won't be good for you just because you can afford it. So newbies, hide your credit card, and don't spend a cent on anything in your first 2 weeks of learning - if not, you will drain all your cash and accomplish nothing.( everything will look really good and attractive in the beginning).
