Default PS. A story.

In the 1994 edition of 7 Steps to Freedom II book, Ben Suarez was excited about the day soon to arrive when he could sell electrons. And eliminate the paper and ink. He foresaw the future.

Too bad, that today, 22 years after his vision, SCI has never been able to figure out how to sell electrons.

Also, in that book, he tells the story of how he planned to beat the big corporations (and he did) by being "nimble and fast on his feet"...which he talked about going up against the 400 pound gorilla. Now he is the gorilla.

See? Sometimes big success slows you down.

Harvey Brody had a successful publishing business, which he closed down and got rid of all his employees. So far, NONE of his masterful work has been digitized and he too, does not sell electrons.

The point is, YOU, as a one man band, can compete with the giants, geniuses and gifted marketers...IF

you are quick and nimble, and float like a butterfly and market like an Autumn bee.

I will give credit to Sherman Hunter who is attempting to automate the whole thing...and is selling electrons (although not his own, YET)...

And from a doing perspective, most SowPubbers would probably benefit from thinking about acquisition of stored value, via distressed businesses.

Of course, all mentioned in this thread have sensational businesses and they do what they love to do.
