religion philosophy business chess
I like spending free time with my friends. When I'm home, I'm always masterminding on how to get my business to the next level.
Far too many to mention here... but here's a few: Paul the Apostle, John Maxwell, Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump, Bob Burg, Raymond E. Feist, J.R.R. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin,
For everything in life, there is a balance. That is what the far left and far right will never understand - Marius Lombaard- People hate marketing because they don't understand it. They don't understand it because the textbooks prescribed by schools are written by broke academics. Academics have no business teaching marketing, otherwise they'd be out there making money. Why not read books by rich marketing geniuses who actually know what they're talking about? PS-> They're books won't bore you like the academic books do... -Marius Lombaard-

I've just read "Rich Dad Poor Dad". My life changes completely. My career goals never involved business before, but this one book set my life on a very particular course. Most of my free time and thoughts are spent on business concepts and ideas since reading that book.
I enroll for a Bachelors degree specializing in Entrepreneurship at the University of Pretoria.
I join Amway. I slowly learn some practical and streetsmart business skills.
My college education was all theoretical and I'm broke. I hop online looking for answers and find Magnetic sponsoring, which started focusing my efforts on online marketing.
Unfortunately being broke and living on a $700 salary doesn't allow me to pay for too many other courses to speed up my learning.
I'm left to mining blogs and forums like better networker for my marketing education.
I'm still broke, but now I'm also engaged with no money to live a married life (never mind the costs of the wedding itself...)
The tables start to turn. I slowly start to get customers and people's attention with my marketing efforts. I make a few sales, but nothing to go full-time into my own business yet.
I make my big break by cracking Google Adwords and setting up a campaign up that achieves 20% CTR!
What does the future hold? Who can say? All I know is: "NEVER, NEVER, NEVER EVER GIVE UP!"
