From Frank Schilling 2006: The Best Advice I Never Acted On

After all, it wasn't until 2 years later that I would learn that the guy behind the alias "Frankie" dispensing these words to me (who was beaming with excitement after my first TRAFFIC in Vegas after taking a six year nap) was actually Frank Schilling whom I knew nothing about. Perhaps this explains why I am so passionate about his accomplishments and why it's personal and emotional.

"6 years Owen. Look where we all are. Don't wait another day and stop looking for the Bogey-man. Start buying type-ins and high quality domains as the opportunities to do so cost-effectively arise.. I could just as easily say nothing and let you wallow in fear and doubt .. Consider this a wake-up call. The net and current ad models won't change much in the next decade. While its prudent to look for potential changes and guard yourself, I say "make hay while the sun shines" and don't worry so much about what probably won't happen.  
In the last 3 years I have seen two or three "sales guys" who could not send an email come out of no-where and build repeat revenue domain portfolios. These people are no smarter than you or I and are just following the PPC blueprint.
In life there is the easy way and the hard way.. the dividing line between the two is often simply a matter of order. 
I think Tony Montana said it best in Scarface: "In this country, first you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the women". Or perhaps more to the discussion at hand: "First you get the type traffic names, then you get the money, then you build the websites that sell stuff and make deals."  
The World is Yours, Owen. Take it."
