So where did the money come from to open the next 6 lemonade stands!?!?
It cost $300 for a stand,.
So before you can roll out more lemonade stands you need to get the money which hasn’t been factored in.
Bad business plan….Cant invest!!!

Even though I’ve made my stance on whether this video actually addresses what the title claims… I’ve noticed that there IS some good information in this video. I’m actually learning a few things; so the video is a mixed blessing it seems.

DonnyBrook says:

I’m 28 seconds in an he’s already lying. There’s no need for me to watch any of this shit. Finance is a weird world. If you ain’t paying for your education, you’re getting bullshit and you’re about to loose money imo

Now, if you’re really into the idea of trading, here is a simple way to get into ForEx trading, this is trading the currency market.
Join IMarketsLive… Even Better, here’s a link for you to get started under me –> http://myimarketslive.co/jkhild

What do they have???
– Education for you to learn how to trade the markets like a pro!
– If you get their premium package, FXTrader, which automatically trades your account as well.
– You get live sessions which teach you more complex ideas on trading the market!
– You get an app called SwipeTrades which give you trades that you can copy and paste to make some more easy cash! $$$
– You get access to their Harmonic Scanner, which scans the market which gives you 70-85% accurate trades every time!
– And Daily Swing Trades, which gives you the best idea as to where to look for trades!

– Residual, passive income, which means, the more people you have that open an account under you, you will get the possibility of becoming an IBO, which basically lets you start bringing in tons of money every week! How cool is that??? i.e. When you finally get 2 people, you stop paying the company every month to continue trading with them, and if you get more people to join, they will literally pay you every month for the rest of your life.

Happy hunting everyone!
I’ll see you in iMarketsLive! 🙂
