Dead Ferret? Can anyone please down-vote this jerk into oblivion?

Just for the record: He's managed to build a $30k business... on the side... while working a 70hr/wk job.

I think there are quite a few people that are outright jealous of Patrick, I can't explain some of the votes in this thread in any other way.

If you can't concede the business acumen of someone that manages to go from employment to being self supporting in such a short time without any outside help or financing then you're very much out of tune.


I think we are seeing again the whole "you are not a real startup if you haven't raised at least 1 million in venture capital" meme. No right to exist for lifestyle entrepreneurs in some little minds.
