Default Sometimes, one has to start in first gear...BUT, they can shift quickly.

This is a very critical concept for you to understand, if you want to operate your business in an easy, low-stress, yet still very profitable manner...

I wrote a very short (one page) report on this. It's just something I put together quickly - it's the information that's critical...

I've attached it to this post!

Best wishes,


P.S. This very basic web site will be further developed -

I rec'd the Toll Position Course around the time I had started the OFF KEY SINGING TELEGRAM SERVICE. Which was very much a first gear biz. When it took off, I hired some help, then after a TV appearance, I had to quickly get into 3rd gear, via outsourcing but never made it to 4th, because I sold it off.

But, it had higher gear potential. Learning from that, when I started the Golf Shop, I started with a VIEW FROM THE ROOFTOP, and the idea was franchising and/or licensing of PROPRIETARY golf instruction. (Still nothing like it).

The big BUT here, was the partnership. And anyone who has been through one that ended, even if mutually amicable, feels a bit different about them going forward. Harvey Brody would say work only with #1's...but that is for a different day to discuss.

Not quite a decade ago, Harvey revealed the highest gear I had heard of, next to ownership of a toll, which was to have the toll gate on a bridge that specific professionals had to cross if they wanted to get to the other side.

We've danced around these concepts for some time, however, there may be an opportunity for some of you that have an interest in learning more and more about those concepts and other higher gear activities.

We will keep you posted as this develops.

Exciting days.
