Re: SEM Easy?

Andrew,
Thanks for reaching out. I am not on the list you mentioned or any IM related lists at all so I'm not sure where it's coming from if you guys weren't sending them.

Re: SEM Easy?

I would stay far, far away from them. I've gotten hundreds of spam emails from them and I never even opted in. To me, that's a clear sign to stay away.

Re: Whats the biggest tip you can give new entreprenuers.

Think BIG. Don't try to make $50,000 or $100,000 per year, shoot for 5 million or more. Don't try to change a few lives, try to change the world. Don't let anyone else's low expectations lower yours.
