    I hate that when I have a really great idea, or better yet when I am in the early stages of implementing an idea.... I have no one to share it with! What is with this human need to share ideas? I don't like it.

    Yeah I chat with BH folk on IM, but there's noway I'm going to share an awesome money making strategy with them--- Ya'll are as dirty and sneaky as I am!

    Regular folk can't appreciate the difference between a $5 a day campaign, and a $300/day one.

    Sigh....

    I find it really difficult to keep information to myself (except in cases of extreme importance/urgency).

    I also find it difficult not to brag or insinuate about my progress in the various things I do. I'm getting better, though. :-/

    Yeah well... i hate the fact that sometimes you fall on your chin with some ideas, but when a check rolls in you know why you are doing it ( good ) :D

    Ah, the lonely life of a black hatter.

    Well, at least you don't have MikeHustle's problem!

    Nice avatar ;)

    Most people don't like failure but if I have to fail 9 times before I reach that one huge success, I'm going to do it. The failures will pale in comparison to the success that I reach.


    Edison failed 10,000 times before he succeeded. If you knew you had to fail 10,000 times at IM until you reached the idea that made you a million dollars and fame, would you be able to hang in there?

    Ah, I find ways of explaining my brilliant ideas to people so they would understand. You just have to dumb it down a little, and be general for the most part.

    When said plan works though.. they suddenly become interested and want to know the finer details. Though as we all know, this line of work isn't for most people.

    Great out look on things. Yeah I have trouble keeping things to myself too...I like to see people make money with me and I am too giving when others don't give a damn.

    Real talk... I hate the urge. I generally just say something super basic which gives absolutely no hints on what I'm doing. IE... "i'm fiddling with some internet ideas right now. nothin much" :D

    I find the problem is that most people who show an interest in what I'm doing would have absolutely no idea what I was talking about if I explained it to them. Mention anything to do with making money online and they imeadiatley think you are into porn or scamming people.

    I guess sometimes we need to validate our ideas sort of bounce them off someone who would understand, that's why finding a good honest partner is like striking gold.

    The desire to share things/information is a trait that evolved in humans for millions of years, helped early human ancestors to survive, and proved to be a positive as humans are a social species. So it is understandable that sometimes it can be hard to not share things. Since unfortunately this trait can backfire on you when it comes to marketing, which began only a couple thousand of years and is not a trait you have to learn to keep some things a secret.

    I seriously have this problem lol.... But I am getting better, I guess more $$ will do this to you.

    "Finding a good honest partner is like striking gold" <<<<< This is the truth, I love JVs just because you can bounce ideas off each other and of course, it's more fun becoming rich with someone else :D
