Stolen Files is a new product from John Harrison of Streetwise Publications. It claims to provide readers with over 100 business ideas.
What does the product offer?
It is no secret that John Harrison has done very well for himself through Streetwise publications. Their status as one of the more tenacious and well known information publishing houses in the UK cements this. With Stolen Files, he says that he will introduce users to a number of different business ideas – more specifically, 133 of them – all of which are currently not being operated in the UK or are operating as a very small niche.
The types of businesses that Stolen Files explores are massively varied and they range from manual labour to computer work to artistic pursuits.
Some of the businesses that John Harrison recommends in Stolen Files will naturally need more start up capital than others, and it is worth highlighting that the content in the book is more of a case study. Those who are looking for step by step instructions to a business will not find it here.
How does the product work?
John Harrison often puts out little snippets in his weekly email about businesses and entrepreneurs are doing in other countries so in many ways, Stolen Files isn’t anything really new to me.
As mentioned, what you are getting with Stolen Files is a snapshot of a business. This is what somebody is doing, maybe this could be adapted to such a market, this is how much it has earned.
As a result of this approach, the point of Stolen Files appears to be designed more to inspire rather than to instruct.
What is the initial investment?
At the time of writing Stolen Files is being sold for a one off cost of £9.95 which isn’t too bad. Streetwise Publications also offer a full 30 day money back guarantee should you find that the content ultimately isn’t to your liking.
What is the rate of return?
There is no real rate of return for Stolen Files. Whilst it is possible that some of the business ideas may well make a substantial amount of money, there simply aren’t any guarantees.
The fact is that Stolen Files isn’t a direct money making product and nor does it really offer any opportunity to enhance a business i.e. in terms of marketing.
Stolen Files is a bit of a weird offering in many respects. The fact that nothing is concrete seems peculiar in these days of “step by step blueprints”, but there is something about Stolen Files that is actually rather compelling.
I think that a big part of this is that it isn’t the same old recycled crap. John Harrison isn’t peddling another affiliate marketing scheme.
It isn’t a new gambling system, it is genuinely insightful and interesting reading. Don’t get me wrong, if you are looking for something that will start making you money tomorrow or even in a month, then Stolen Files definitely isn’t for you.
Otherwise, I see this as an interesting read that for those with an entrepreneurial edge will find rewarding and engaging.
