These forums are great, but if you google forums and locate a site that is more about people that have made it, then you will learn more. I visit karllina.com and its more of an upmarket site as the business people show of their cars and achievments.

Id love to know of other sites that are more about 'already made it' as opposed to 'I want to be an entreprenuer'

To be perfectly honest, other than for a laugh, I dont see the purpose of the site you posted.

One of the advantages/ disadvantages of the internet is that anyone can claim to be anything they want. So some people have claimed that they are hotshots and have posted a picture of a car, I could easily register and post a picture of a car I happened to find on the net and claim it was mine. That and the cars on their are not that great - a merc which I can buy for 16,000 ? Hell, my company car is worth 3 times that and I wouldnt consider myself to have "made it"

Nope, unless membership is $2million per annum then I wouldnt consider any forum of people that have "made it" to be close to true - and even if it was the membership fee then the likelyhood is there are security holes for people to get through.

At least with this forum people are simply giving advise and it is up to the other party if they take it or not.

Good comment.

Perhaps I didnt say it right.

Sites that have people that have made it... Hmmm sounds the same, doesnt it. If you take 'made it' as being millionaires, then thats ok. People on this forum havent made it, as in they are still putting together their concept. I guess thats why this forum is called Small business ideas. Not Small Business completed, which is what I am looking for.

I still enjoy it here and will assist where I can

I understand what you are trying to say but dont think anyone thinks the have "made it"

My boss is one of the original founders of the company I work for, he was also exceptionally clever (there is a reason why he is the director of strategy) as he also founded a software company at the same time which created the software package we use to this day and his second company owns the rights to it. 21 years later we now have over 20,000 employees, made over 600 million (over $1 billion) profit last year but if you ask him he still wont consider that he has made it even though we are the UK number 1 in the market we originally started in and in the top 10 in every market we current compete.

On the forum you will find many people who have a successful business, many who are in the process of setting one up and a few like myself who dont own/run their own business but feel they have something to contribute.

It seemed a bit superficial for my taste.

What makes you think that there are NOT people here who have 'made it' ?



What a load of tosh IMO.
