Connections. Harvey Brody, Ben Suarez, Gary Halbert, et. al.
In the last couple of days there has been a discussion on Facebook, at the Gary Halbert site run by his sons, about Ben Suarez and 7 Steps to FreedomII (which is being updated to include Internet Marketing)...
OOPS, got a phone call, will be back to connect some dots, later...

There's a copy there right now...
Harvey created his first toll position - he invented the zoom-spout oiler.
After that, he acquired toll positions... I believe the aerosol pistol grip was an acquired product (along with others).
In many cases, he bought out the originators of the product, lock stock and barrel. However, you can also do joint-venture type deals as well.
He also made a lot of money with publishing toll positions as well, as in parallel, he ran a publishing company during the 1970s up to around 1990 I think. (He was making a lot of money, but in the end he decided he hated having employees...)
However, not all toll positions are equal... You want something that will be in demand, and which can also be easily supplied as well. Your toll position will then protect you from copycats, once you're making a lot of money (because the nature of business is, if people see you making money, they'll want to copy you and steal your customers).
There's a lot more to share, of course, but that's the essence of it...
I've been very fortunate. After Gordon was taught by Harvey, I got taught by Harvey too... I actually talk to Harvey on a regular basis...
