    1 Negotiation strategy that turned topseolead to a 6/figure business


    At 8 years old I started my business life as the candy man at Mollie Ray Elementary, but sold candy at a whole different level than kids selling candy now a days. I knew If I was going to make profit from selling candy I had to sell and sell to the whole entire school. At first I was going from class to class selling candy. Even during class time, I used to get excused from class to go to use the restroom. But in fact I was really going to sell candy to the other surrounding classes. At that time it got me in some pretty big trouble due to the fact I got caught for not been slick enough. That when I knew I had to go bigger, and stronger than ever. That when I started to get other 8 year olds to selling for me. I had 8 candy sellers going around the school and managing the candy. I had to cut them 8% profit each. Business was booming – I made a few hundreds in pure profit.


    Later, after becoming renowned for been the candy man at Mollie Ray Elementary, the competition started booming. From teachers selling candy to raise funds for the school and students trying to run and copy my business model. I then had to stop selling candy all together due to the fact that there was too much competition, and also since so many kids were selling candy thus far creating a distraction in class. They had to put a ban on it and get all the candy from the kids who got caught selling. Plus a call home to your parents. And I knew if I had a call home to my parents I would of been in big, big trouble so I knew then I had to pull the plug on the project.


    Things haven't changed much (except that I Create Bigger Brands (Topseolead, Sharebuyideas,Seojims of course).


    Only now, I use them to build companies, create brands and ultimately make others a ridiculous amount of money.
