    Gemigames needs to man up and quit with the loser attitude. Those evil
    elites you talk about organize the production of, well, ALL of your
    products. “The people” are fine but they need “the elites” to organize them
    for a purpose. ” The people” will always fail miserably trying to assume
    this role.

    What a pathetic crap! First, take care about marketing. Then about selling.
    And then about investing. Simply, because, all “crowd-pleasers” won`t tell
    you about it.

    To sum up use your ears. Next go by what your heart says try try try.
    Be honest by doing what you capable of.
    Do not put to much on your plate when starting off. Takes money to make
    money in this world today that cost more to live.. You could try mining to
    start, just like how they did in the old days, using your hands and body to
    make money the hard way..
    Fill sorry for the young kids about news paper boys that are not needed
    anymore, that was good start for our kids to learn how to work at young age
    well they can still mow and wash cars. Today they just play games using
    fingers only and do not think about growing up this is not healthy to..
    Once you have a product you can think about marketing only if you know it
    is worth marketing this will take lot your time up may cost lot to find out
    worth going forward to the next stage, no the cost and the risk.

    Idea, Invent low cost energy we needed it. Things like the Cyclone Engine
    runs clean on anything that burns even your grass clippings, it uses no oil
    zero-waste engine what could you do with it, is about to come out soon
    thanks to help of Ohio State University’s Center for Automotive Research
    and Cyclone Power Technologies Inc..

    Japan has new idea just may work and be good idea if the cost is, they will
    beam sun solar rays down to earth to create a solar energy plant they are
    now planning on why not try try try.

    Kicking out an annoying bank manager and using your other, highly
    successful companies for obtaining credit, is a fairly straightforward
    idea. . . unless you only have one company.

    I wish to open a few hundred homes for the needy around the world … I
    wish to do it for the glory of GOD … and I wonder if Richard Branson is
    willing to put his money in something alike since he is well known as a
    philanthropist …. like Sheldon Adelson. Don´t bother to answer… I know
    where they all stand.

    Success is all about corruption. Opportunity & resources that most slaves
    cannot obtain. It is that simple !!! Just my opinion.

    leaders on occasion.” – Richard Branson

    My big difficulty is that in starting up my business, Im too much of a
    perfectionist to ever finish the final product (I might need a legal
    deadline to kick me up to that), but also that in some ways I’d rather do
    something like join the army, go to help other people and all that. I dont
    know

    Nice comments!! The only tiny tiny error is that Virgin records does not
    have the Centrifugal Satz Clock on it.

    Richard Branson is one of those people who make the world better by
    providing services and improving peoples lives in the process.

    Branson had dyslexia and had poor academic performance as a student, but
    later discovered his ability to connect with others.[9] On one of Branson’s
    last days at school, his headmaster, Robert Drayson, told him he would
    either end up in prison or become a millionaire.[10]

    Great advice for entrepreneurs; even author entrepreneurs who want to be
    leaders. You can always use advice no matter how “small” your business.

    I can only echo Richards advice here, Being in the mini league compared to
    him. i recently sold my company which went from pounds to 6 figures in the
    space of two years. And in order of this to happen you firstly need every
    attribute Richard pointed out, And as your company grows you need to start
    growing apart as well. Making sure your fully confident in the individuals
    who have the steering wheel so to speak.
