Notice... I said excuses, NOT reasons. When I began, did not have cell phones, I worked 45 hours a week in a warehouse and sold 12 homes in six months, and had no idea what I was doing however it sure was fun. Work five hours get a check for $700. which was more than I made in a month driving a forklift.
