Just writing this in the hope that everyone who has read BONDGUY's posts thanks him and appreciates that he takes his time to show up here. I'm a 30 year vet...it's clear that he's forgotten more about what it takes to succeed in this business than most industry trainers know.
I come back here now and again for a bit of inspiration - reading his posts is a blast. Real motivation.
Absorb what he says and DO what he says. It's the "do' part that means everything.
Be wiling to do what others aren't. Simple but not easy.
