Unformatted text preview: e of producing revenue, and literally start in the Internet business, or
using the Internet to run a business, with a few hundred dollars, not a few
thousand dollars. Terry: Everybody listening to this tape knows more than I did when I started, so
they can do – Jonathan: Ron, thousands of people are doing that today, and thousands of people
are gonna do it tomorrow. And yeah, tens of thousands will start it and
they won’t all make money, but thousands will. Ron: And thousands are starting it by spending thousands of dollars and
listening to the morons and doing all the wrong stuff, and just basically
following the wrong leaders who haven’t done it but love to talk about it
and like to charge money for talking about it. Which is one of the reasons
why we asked you five guys to get on this call. You’re real doers, you’re
real players, you’ve done it, you’ve walked the walk. You don’t just talk
the talk. And I teach people all the time, guys, if you want to learn how to
get rich, the only way you’re gonna learn is from people that are rich. Ted: In fact, you only have to take advice from people who are doing better
than you. Ron: Yeah. I want to play golf – I sure don’t want to play anybody worse than I

You’ll have more time with your kids and your family. You’ll be working
from home within a year to two years. There’s almost no down side. Ron: So what you’re saying is you better carve out a niche, not try to be all
things to all people cause you’ll never accomplish that goal. Ted: Be a spet. Ron: And in fact the hardest – the worst thing you can do is try to market to the
entire universe. Be a spet is the right word. Figure out the market
you want to sell to and stick with that market. And that also makes your
marketing efforts a whole lot easier by targetting them instead of trying to
use the shotgun approach. Terry: Well put. Ron: Guys, I got about three or four minutes to find out what the biggest
mistake you’ve made so far in your career is. Who wants to load in on this
one? David: I had a partner that was crooked and he had a supplier who was crooked.
And I didn’t do my homework and I had a bad partner. Ron: Did you live through it? David: Yeah. It cost me a six figure residual income, but I lived through it.
