You live on the hills of Tennessee or in Davenport, how do you get more power?”
Do you have to move?
“Often you do, because the ‘the mountain will not come to Muhammad’, that’s an old phrase from the Middle East but is actually profoundly accurate. But you don’t have to nowadays, you’re handheld device (smartphone) has all the knowledge of mankind right there. ”
“Forget about 10 rules of success, because there are none, because if everybody followed those 10 rules we’d all be rich and millionaires. Don’t quit your day job. Start an LLC, a limited liability corporation. Take over one of the rooms in your house, get your kids involved, get your family involved.”
