Default Success secrets of John Lee Pettimore III.

An alternative, for those who want to cash in today, and don't really care how OLD guys did it.

John Lee was a third generation self-employed Entrepreneur. His grandfather started the family business out of necessity at a time when the government was implementing their anti-sin policies of Prohibition.

He grew slowly, and expanded quickly due to the demand for his product.

Jr. took over the family business and Trey, as the called JLP III, went off to war, the Vietnam War to be exact. While in the jungles during his two tours of duty, Trey had an idea.

Luckily he survived and was able to go home to implement the new dream. Expand the business.

Sure, continue producing and selling the much in demand product of his ancestors, but add a new line. A line which would BOOM, some might say thanks to the Vietnam War, where thousands of American GIs were exposed to this new product.

Demand grew. And GREW. Only problem was, it was still considered unlawful in the eyes of the Feds, who at the time were using Martial Law on a routine basis to control the populace.

Then, in dark rooms full of leather chairs and Cuban cigar smoke, the good ol boys had an epiphany, "let's not use force on the citizens, let's be covert, make them feel good, take away their pain and they will become zombie like puppets".

This plan was implemented to perfection.

Anyhow, Trey became a multi millionaire, did international business and today his son, Quad Pettimore, runs the extraction plant in Kentucky.

If looking for a business model, even longer than the half a century that Harvey Brody has done, then maybe you might consider the success of John Lee Pettimore III as an alternative strategy. Here is his short story:
