Worst investment ever
Keith quit his job to start a coaching business. When he was ready to diversify where he marketed his services, he invested in two Facebook marketing programs. Keith bought the two programs for five figures.
It was only after he paid for the programs that he realized he had made an emotional decision out of fear of being left out. Now he didn’t have the time to integrate two Facebook systems simultaneously. One program is still lying somewhere on the back burner, unimplemented.
