Learn all you can. Leave nothing to chance. Calculate and prepare for the worst possible scenario. Do not take yesterday's success for granted. Work hard and foster good customer relationships. Do these simple things and you can succeed beyond your hopes.

Oh, and one other thing, read and post on the success story threads. This story was predictable eight ways to Sunday, the final chapter was no surprise to anyo

ne but the author.
Yep. Prepare for the worst is a very true statement, most people don't. This thread is tired, it needs to be retired.
