As a former marketing specialist in corporate America, I recognize this slow, methodical, and common sense approach to being successful. Kudos to Darren Hardy for this book. It's not flashy, trendy, or hip, but what he says works. If I had figured this out many years ago, instead being a hippie, I might have my own island today. Good read.
