SBI!ers, like life itself, are very much a case of "slow-steady-sure wins the race." Too many solopreneurs think that the prize goes to the "Get Rich Quick" ("GRQ") hare. Do YOU know a single person who actually GOT Rich Quick? No, while the hare flits from one "biz-opp" to another, the steady, persistent tortoise RULES. Have a success to share, a failure you need help with? Share it, and solve it here!

Hi to all,

It's been 10 years since we talked about "The Tortoise's Little Green Book Of Winning Theories," so I thought I'd tie this old thread (2007) up into a nice little summary...

They're from mass-market libertarian, Robert Ringer, one of my favorite authors when I was much younger. Long out of print, it seems you can now buy a copy of it at Amazon...

In the preface, he writes...

The dictums, rules, and insights... have served me well not only in the business world, but in all areas of life. To be sure, I have all too often found that when I have inadvertently strayed off course, my real error has been in forgetting my own rules.


As I said when I introduced this thread...

Many of those dictums have stuck with me to this day. I wanted to share them with you. This little booklet cannot be bought, cannot even be found on the Web (except for one site that excerpts parts of some of the quotes without permission).


Here Are The Winning Tortoise Theories, my favorite 7 with his personal permission, supplemented by commentary...
