before you get started.
Golden Rule of Biz-Ops (and a Little Pep Talk)
- This is Assignment No.
1, and it's a MUST for everyone. And if
you've already been scammed, our Little Pep Talk
is designed to get you thinking like a Survivor
instead of a Victim.
"Want To Believe" Syndrome
- Untreated, this
condition can be fatal. There's no time like
the present to learn to recognize the symptoms,
because if they sneak up on you, you're dead
meat. You'll do what you want to do, and
nothing you read here or anywhere else can save

fleas, and there are heavy casualties in every
town they hit.

Personality tells you, selling space in his mall
is NOT likely to make you rich. Mr.
Personality, on the other hand, stands an
EXCELLENT chance of getting rich selling workshops
at $2,995 a pop.
of Certified Liquidators (ACL)
- I'm extra proud of this
one, considering it was edited (and edited) (and
edited) under the direct supervision of (and
threats from) Mitch Klass, owner of ACL.
It's my personal favorite, and I think Mitch likes
it too, since he finally went away.
yeah, I guess you could say it's MLM.... But
We'll Build Your Downline For You!
- "All you have to do is
mail postcards, we'll do the rest!" They
call it "The Power of Spillover." I call it,
"How To Recruit Suckers To Foot The Bill."

wannabe Stay-At-Home Moms. But there is no
JOB and there are no CLIENTS.... just empty forms
and empty promises!

- No question about it,
somebody is going to make great money.... but I
guarantee it won't be you.

Recipes in the Tabloids!

be running their ads for twelve weeks
straight. Or would they?
Your Fortune Selling Personal Trading Cards
- A real product with
real potential.... but in the wrong hands, these
little cards can spell disaster. You don't
have to fork over your life savings to get into

waking moment hunting down products,
taking pictures, writing listings, and
RElisting all the stuff that didn't sell

there's standing in line at the Post
Office for 17 years... and don't
forget counting that profit on your ten
