Tough – I can’t teach how to apply a strategy and I won’t. It is about knowledge, skill and experience (KSE) applied in the framework of the strategy. What that means is that if you don’t have the KSE, you’re likely to bust and then go in a sing-song disgruntled way, “Your strategy doesn’t work for me!.. You’re a hoaxer!”  And I’ll just say, “You expect people to give you a ready made recipe for becoming a millionaire. I never promised you a rose garden! You’re a loser  – get lost before you lose more! ” I never said that my strategy will work ‘for you’.
