As a newbie on the forum, I am pleased to have found a great new home.
Although MJ said it in his books, I was still contemplating to move towards service. Your remarks as quoted below have made me shift that thinking rapidly.
Thanks for the wake-up-call!

Focus on a product for sale or rent rather than a service you provide unless you can hire people to do it from day one. Don't make the mistake I did; if you're heavily entangled in the creation and implementation of your productocracy, freedom is slower, and harder, because every little bit you draw back lowers your income and puts freedom farther away. It's super tempting to want a magnitude play because it's faster to start and it might even give you a sort of celebrity feeling (flying out to give lectures, staying in hotels all the time). All that glitters is not gold. Let your packages get on a plane to Ohio or Kentucky while you get on a plane to the Maldives.

With your family.

And without your phone.
Productocracy: Your system has a good day, so you don't have to.
