Video Boss, Whatever

This is not an original thought of mine, but the author gave me permission to use it, and I 100% agree with what he says.

In case you’re wondering, the source is the Salty Droid’s blog, but it is not something that the Droid said. Rather it’s a comment on the post that I’m referencing.

I took the liberty of adding links to the books on Amazon. Yes, those are affiliate links and if you buy the book from my link I’ll get to make something like $.15 commission on each purchase. Big money.

 

So, you’re wondering whether you should shell out a massive $1,997.00 of your hard earned dollars for this so-called “Video Boss?”

What exactly do you receive? Mainly, you’ll get to watch some videos of one person’s LIMITED perspective (that person being Andy Jenkins’), along with a few PDFs, and some headache-inducing flowcharts.

Think that’s going to make you a well rounded, successful business person? Think again!

Now…let’s consider an ALTERNATIVE. Instead of throwing all that money away for “Video Boss,” why not pop on over to reliable Amazon and order:
