Default The middle man (broker) approach.

I think, if you're a small operation (one person, or just a few people), it's generally much easier to sell to fewer customers, at higher amounts per sale, than the "WalMart" approach, of selling cheaply, to many customers...

Harvey's approach combines both! Sell via other large sellers, but when you make a "sale," you're not selling in ones and twos, but in hundreds and thousands of items each time...

However, the key to doing it is the toll position. Without a toll position, you can't make it work (as you'll eventually get "cut out" of the deal)!

Thanks for bringing this up!

Why "bust your a**" doing it the hard way?

Best wishes,


I reread QOP because a guy in UK is selling a 1k course on 'CONTRACT MANAGER' biz-op. His "promise" is 250k a year first year.

And on his site, he makes dang sure he lets people know he is NOT a broker, which in most countries is a licensed and regulated business.

Middleman. Way back in the 60's and 70's Jim Straw was publishing the BOD Business Opportunities Digest and more recently we've discussed one of Harvey Brody's star pupils, Sherman Hunter who is the eAlliance and SDK HUNTER guy.

Pretty much the same as Jim did back in the day, only now, there are secret or expensive DATA BASES to access for the lists of buyers and sellers.

Dien, now that you have had some International exporting under your belt, I think you'd agree, it isn't as easy as some make it sound.

Find a guy in Israel who will pay you 75k a month for supplying certain foods, and man oh man, it does sound fantastic.

Import-Export is, or can be lucrative to the right person who understands it...but to the avg Joe in America, it is a pipe dream.

Which is why Harvey's TOLL position stands tall in the field, and his concepts of decades ago, like STORED VALUE, are still relevant today.

We often get distracted (helping others??) and with our daily mundane, we don't give the time and thought to see these amazing opportunities, and the middleman gig is alive and well, on multi million dollar levels all the way down to FINDER'S FEES for local businesses.

We should have more discussion on this.
