I thinks thats literally it. There was nothing that he did or said to make me believe that its just I looked at him, ben armstrong, larry, and a couple of other names. I just always thought he was successful like ben and larry. But from what you guys have posted and what I'm sort of getting the feeling of is that his "consulting" is based on a cookie cutter formula one size fits all kind of thing. It wasn't that he was special I just took every word he said to the golden letter if you know what I mean.
Now I'm just hoping to learn as much as I can from people who can, like you said, prove they know what it takes to be successful in any market. Not just give me some rinse and repeat recipe. That to me is a real fast way to lose a ton of money and a one way ticket out of the haunted house industry.
PS. I remember a time when I thought "I" knew it all but we all know how much of a smartass I made myself look. Now I understand it takes time to learn and gather experience. I have high hopes I'll get there someday I just don't want to have misplaced trust in someone who claims to know what they are talking about and get steered off course.
