Story of a potato peelers who become a millionaire, and what can you learn from this too!
Cann someone actually become a millionaire selling potato peelers?
This is a story of a man named Joseph Ades
He didn’t have a fancy shop!
He did not have fancy cars!
He only sold potato peelers on a busy intersection in New York, he didn’t wear the best clothes, he didn’t even own a nice car.
His product was super cheap, He sold the potato peelers for $5 each.
He attracted customers with his charm and then demonstrated the product right in front of them on the sidewalk.
He spent his days selling potato peelers on a sidewalk in New York City because he wanted to put his granddaughters through college so they wouldn’t have to do the same.
Often times he used to be charged by New York police to move away as he did not have a license to sell.
But he was still able to become a millionaire just selling potato peels.
He even had a posh Park Avenue apartment. where he spent his nights in.
And, even in his mid-70’s, Ades got up before the sunrise and set out to sell his potato peelers six days a week.
Ades kept it simple
Hee found something that worked, stuck with his product, trusted his sales ability, and worked hard every day.
And it was through that hard work that he made an incredibly simple business plan into a massive success that turned him into a millionaire until he eventually passed away on February 1st 2009.
He said in a 2008 appearance on The Today Show: – “Never underestimate a small amount of money”
Now looking back at this story there are some fundamental truths which we all can learn especially if you are starting out as a solopreneur!
He kept things simple.
He kept on doing that one simple thing over and over till he got really good at it .
He found solutions to whatever challenges he came up against.
He did something which he loved to death and as a result he could make something as outwardly mundane as a potato peeler seem exciting!
He had a mission bigger than himself admitting his grand daughters to college.
So much we can learn from looking at entrepreneurs who take simple systems and run with them.
He did not judge his work no matter how insignificant it seemed, he got extremely good at that one simple thing.
Every time I scroll through my Facebook, I see people boasting about all they have seven income streams or their 10, income streams, and all of that crap!
And often, you know, it’s some guru that told them they need as many income streams as possible by referencing people like Warren Buffet, who has a bunch of income streams!
Look, Warren Buffet is a billionaire, he can hire the best people on the planet to run every income stream he has.
You don’t need any other income streams when you’re starting out.
Because when you are starting out, you’re by yourself and the more you divide your energy between the income streams, the less energy each income stream gets.
And then all your competition will dominate you because they focus on one thing, they are 100% and you will always be less than 100% in any of the income streams.
You actually make it much longer or yourself to be successful. By spreading your attention between different things.
Just like Joseph you should not be thinking about another income stream till you hit your first million dollar with a certain income stream.
That’s just the reality and I am in this journey too!
If your goal is to make money online, then you should find out that one thing and make it work until it works.
Its all about constantly improving your systems with one small detail at a time until it’s perfect.
