Default Marketing as well as win/win deals...

Hi Gordon,

Thanks for those tales from the "beating heart" of direct marketing...

There's no doubt that there's moolah to be made in the "magic" market...

I used to be curious about this stuff, especially in my teens. I once read a non-fiction book called "The Story of a Happy Witch" by Debbie Sherwood. I didn't believe that her "magic" really "worked"... but I do think "magic" can have a "placebo effect" - and thus can "work" in that way...!

My favorite book from those days, when I read those books more often, was probably one on Lucid Dreaming... That's where you are in a dream, while you're asleep, and you realize that you are dreaming. When in that state, you can then suddenly have "super powers" in your dream if you want to - since you realize it is a dream... The topic still fascinates me...

On toll position opportunities... You still need to have some business and marketing skills... Sometimes the owner of a toll position can pass away, and it is passed on to his or her next-of-kin, who don't know what to do with it. In those circumstances, you can reach a "win/win" solution - by either buying it from them, or doing a deal where you can help them profit from it, while making a profit as well yourself...

I think this is the best way to potentially "make it big" if you are a "little guy"...

It also helps to get experienced at "deal-making"... The "win/win" kind of deals...

Best wishes!
