      "Never complain about stupid people.  Without them, you'd have a lot more competition, wouldn't you?"

      One good answer would be:

      Are you aware that there are “high school students making more waging in one single day than you might be making in one single week alone?”

      How these chaps are doing it? Well, they design Iphone Apps - and unknowingly stumbled upon one of the furthermost niche earnings generating machine ever seen this last few years!

      Find out how to Bring into existence iPhone Apps effortlessly with no training experience necessary.

    Not the best business advice, but what I have learned through being employed by businesses:

    Give conflicting advice every time you open your mouth.
    Confuse the h@ll out of the employees to keep them under control.
    Dangle the carrot and yank it away when someone gets too close.
    Never admit, in front of a witness, what your subordinate knows to be true.
    Accuse others of failure, rather than admit mistakes to self, in order to keep your job.
    Lie, cheat, steal, manipulate others - everyone else does.

      Start with nothing!  That way you lose nothing.
      If you already have something - protect it with every bone in your body.
      Know when to give up.
      Know when not to give up.
      Expect to work 16 hours a day 7 days a week.
      Have nerves of steel.
      Develop a skin as thick as a rhinocerus
      Get yourself a second in command as nuts as your are.

    The customer is ALWAYS right.  Even when he is wrong, he is RIGHT...  Find a way to make him feel right and happy.

    Good luck with your business,

    Start closing at the meet and greet.  Once the deal is closed shut your mouth and write the order.

    Don't look back! Past is gone. It's now and tomorrow. Do with what you have and no regrets. You are not perfect and so is everybody else!

    Save money as in any type of business the first 3 years are generally feast or famine when it comes to income.
