    He has a bad attitude, should be humble, success is about selling yourself as a brand as well

  12. Johnny Nemo says:

    So apparently you somehow don't need capital to create a product, let alone have enough material to create enough of a product to sell it, hire people to create a product, market the product, and market it. Good to know.

  13. Bloggin Brandi says:

    There are businesses which require no capital.

    You want real advise ask a Small Business owner who still remembers.. Marc seems to have a short memory

  15. Sonny Formato says:

    This coming from a guy who borrowed thousands from friends and family to start the business that made him rich.. What a dick.. Every body knows IT TAKES MONEY TO MAKE MONEY.. He said "Next to no capitol" not NO Capitol .. Believe me people YOU NEED MONEY TO START A BUSINESS no matter what it is… Especially if you have a location. Rent while your going, electric, insurance in most cases, Point of purchase , product to sell, etc.. it goes on and on.. This dick head seems to have forgot his history of how he started his own companies.. Including borrowing 30k from mom and dad and over 1 million from friends and family.. It paid off luckily, but remember, he almost went to jail doing it and had to fight the SEC over millions… I hate these kind of rich asshole giving bad advise

  17. Jay Sprezz says:

    Look, I'm not trying to discourage anyone from starting their own business, but the info from this fool is pure BS and condescending. Especially these days as it applies to the majority of people. Regardless of how capital is acquired and regardless of what your business or product is, the reality is that 99% of all startups require a boat load of cash AND time that your willing and able to throw away. This is not a reality for the common individual like it was back in the day. It takes a lot of money to make a lot of money.

    joe harding yeah i know i just found that out in 1979 a guy loaned mark 15 grand to buy a bar look i like mark but he is a hypocrite i agree if u can avoid a loan u should problem is most people need that loan to get started the problem with loans is of course the interest if u can get a no interest loan from from friends or family go for it if its a bank only borrow what u need and make sure that interest rate is as low as possible u dont want the bank to sucker u out all the money u earn that would otherwise be profit
