    Where in the world is it easiest to get rich? [Video ]

    OFF-TOPIC 
    One funny thing I noticed is that he lists the 5 richest countries per capita... But excludes countries such as Hong Kong and Switzerland because they are "tax havens" and have "disproportionate high amount of rich people." Meanwhile his entire set-up is that he's trying to prove low taxation...

    Everything You Need to Know About Sales: Part 1

    MARKETING AMA 
    Thanks for the reply. I'm figuring out how to make this happen over here in Europe, where PACE financing is not an option or where it doesn't exist (except for limited subsidies for solar panels.) I know I can technically call the US from Europe but I'm much stronger face-to-face.

    Everything You Need to Know About Sales: Part 1

    MARKETING AMA 
    So, let me get this straight. English is not my native language and maybe things in America go a bit different, but this is how it works: 1) You go to company A and you tell them you will sell their stuff. In return you get a % of net profits resulting from the sale. 2) You visit/call other...

    Thanks, man. Yeah it's just a job while I'm in uni. Beats flipping burgers or being a cashier (pays better too.) I'm really enamoured by solar, isolation, LED technologies. Energy efficiency. Would love selling that kind of stuff, if we're talking big ticket.

    Hey man, where did you find the audiobook for Rainmaker? I tried sending a private message but it seems I can't.

    Am I looking for "How to Become a Rainmaker: The Rules for Getting and Keeping Customers and Clients" by Jeffrey J. Fox or Rainmaker by Russ Alan Prince? Or are they somehow the same? The latter is very hard to find it seems. (Here in Europe)

    MARKETING AMA 
    I love this thread. Listened to episode one. I already read SPIN Selling after a guy who sells cars (and now solar panels) recommended it. Excited to read Rainmaker. Recently I got a job selling a 40 euro product door to door for 25% commission, just for the experience. I'm in my third year of...

    My first business mentor was Runescape

    OFF-TOPIC 
    I remember in Animal Crossing: Wild World, every Sunday there would be a character visiting your town who sells turnips. The asking price is always different. The turnips spoil and become worthless after one week, however, there is a shop in your town that will buy them from you. The catch is...

    Discount cards, why is no one doing it?

    That's cool, I didn't even know about them. Seems like they started with one niche and branched out and now offer coupons on everything. Still, I might just set up a website and contact a few restaurants. Nothing to lose right? It seems everyone of you is very acquainted with this business...

    Discount cards, why is no one doing it?

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I figured it should be possible to contact a few mid-high-end restaurants in my city, and convince them to go through with this plan. They could only offer discounts during slow hours for example, because a discounted table is better than an empty table. Once I...

    Discount cards, why is no one doing it?

    Yep, it's not sustainable but I don't see the harm in just setting something like this up. It seems like there's very little time investment. Make a website, throw some ads on Facebook, sell the idea to restaurants, get the cards made, ship/sell them. Done. I think I'll give it a go and see how...

    Discount cards, why is no one doing it?

    Hi everyone, I recently took it upon myself to teach myself how to sell. I've got a part time job selling door to door and I want to improve, hone my skills and start selling stuff myself one I get the hang of it. Anyway, I was reading Brian Tracy's "The Psychology of Selling" and one sentence...

    Amazing thread. I'm a long-term reader of Victor Pride's stuff as well. I'll follow your blog too. Props.

    Thanks for the reply. Is it really smart to basically drink sugar?

    INTRO 
    Like many other young men I have been busting my a$$ in the gym, and I've gained about 25kg of mass since I started (which includes weight from some natural growth!) My only problem really is eating enough calories. I've been a small eater all my life, I'm never really hungry and I'm instantly...
