Thomas boughtrepparttar book, and discovered, he could masterrepparttar 117914 search engines and gain some real targeted traffic to his Gold Link Website. This worked so well for himrepparttar 117915 author, and asked me for training in other marketing tactics. This led to our meeting.

I met Thomas in his third year of owningrepparttar 117916 Gold Link, and he told me of his obstacles. He had given away thousands of dollars for a front page search engine placement that never came. As well as other high traffic promises gone bad. His major problem was a lack of traffic, which equaled lack of sales, and that equaled a loss.

However, Thomas never entertained quitting. Not even close. He has been growing and adding other businesses to his multiple income streams on a regular basis. His next project will be an Internet Mall.

"What will you do with your success now Thomas?" I asked.

"Success isrepparttar 117917 progressive realization of a worthwhile goal or dream." Said Thomas. "My goal and dream is to walk again. I'd gladly like an opportunity be a case study patient for any Doctor looking to try a leg transplant or robotics/bionics. Since no one has taken me up on that yet, I'll just, make enough money with my Gold Link site that I'll buy them in a few years."

In a world where Thomas F. Seymour was challenged by physical limitations, he found a way to triumph. He took his eyes off of his obstacles, and focused on opportunities, until he recognized his. The Internet took away any physical limitations. He knew he could compete with multimillion dollar startup dotcom's and win. The Internet has truly leveledrepparttar 117918 playing field for all of us.
