Secret Academy Episode - Aaron Pitman
About:

While others may frown upon MLM's and the nature of that business model, Aaron Pitman will be the first to tell you that his experience was one of the best business decisions he has made. Once he realized that the same effort applied at the MLM company was better off put to use on his own idea, Aaron got into the crazy world of domain names. Rather than buy random domains, Aaron focused on the local market, specifically local based service companies looking for more business. His options were to either flip those domains to other businesses, or build them into positive cash flow assets through a variety of revenue streams such as lead generation. His strategy has paid off and Aaron has made millions through domains and now reinvests his money in over 20 different businesses of all verticals.
