  1. “Rick intends to sell premium domains fast and cheap!” is listed at SEDO for $300.000 ..a pure bargain .. :))

  2. Looks like I’ll never make the top young enterpreneur list… Missed it by a couple of years (and a few millions)

  3. Darn, I guess my couple hundred dollars per month doesn’t make me a super affiliate then

  4. Regarding the Chinese youngster, I get the impression his dad had a lot to do with this and not all by hemself.

  5. Hi Scott,
    Some interesting items. Chris Brogan’s time management piece “Scaling Yourself” resonated with me. The demands on ones time come from all directions – work, family, friends etc., – and it is a balancing act to juggle them all. Chris makes some excellent points – like saying no with kindness. It’s not easy and people react as they are not used to you ever saying know, but there are times when you must prioritise and put yourself first. Self discipline and focus are also required. It is easy to get distracted online and jump from pillar to post without getting any real work done. However, there is nothing more frustrating and disappointing than failing to achieve the goals you set out for yourself on a particular day. Using automation and outsourcing intelligently can dramatically improve time management and give greater freedom. This is an area some people feel uncomfortable with, but with products like James Brausch’s Freedom Business System available to guide you through the process, why limit yourself. Chris mentioned that he found time by not watching TV. Incidentally, James Brausch doesn’t have a TV, manages his time very effectively, is a very successful marketer and has the most valuable commodity of all – freedom! Which goes to prove, that effective time management is not a myth, it can be achieved. I guess it is down to how badly each one of us wants it. Enjoyed your site Scott. Looking forward to more gems.
