    It's hard to steal peoples' ideas and call them your own

    Steve Jobs was a one off, and a lot of what he says will be very hard for lesser beings to accomplish...

    Never less his accomplishments speak for themselves... regrettably he is no more...

    In terms of business on the web, I think it's entirely possible to build a long-term income building web properties that you're not really passionate about. Tonnes of people have built successful businesses in the real world with no passion for it. Do you really think someone out there is passionate about manufacturing shower curtain rails? Nope. But they can still make a hell of a lot of money doing so.

    Personally I would rather be emotionally detached from my work so that I can focus on what's important, the profitability. Then in my free-time I can focus on my passions without the pressure of making them profitable.

    I can honestly say that I love what I do but I wouldn't be as far as I am in the IM world if it wasn't for the team I have behind me.

    And when I say "team" I refer to my actual team of people I talk to over the phone and face to face everyday, as well as all the people online that I've never met who have helped me out and I've helped them.
