part of my job is the people I meet, and the best invention of all time, the
internet. Care of the web, I dialogue with readers from ALL continents, at
ALL times of day. And best of all, you never know who’s on the
other end of a message, from executives to entertainers to school teachers.
months ago, I received an email from John Schmidt, a voracious RANTING ANDY
reader and recent convert to the security of REAL MONEY. John exclaimed he
was a professional pool player, with a passion for silver equal to
nine-ball and – as I learned last night – “one
pocket.” First and foremost, John humbly thanked me for the education
he’s received from Miles Franklin; and secondarily, inquired if there
was a way he could partner with us to market Precious Metals.
to dialogue, and lo and behold, John is a WORLD CHAMPION – one
of America’s most famous players. In fact, John is nicknamed “Mr.
400,” as he is the only living player to have run 400 straight
balls – and he’s done it TWICE…

dialogue continued, John sent some of his marketing materials –
including a CD of the 2006 U.S. Open final, in which he won the world
nine-ball championship against fellow champion Rodolfo Luat
of the Philippines…

a nomadic existence, so it was a no-brainer meeting us in Las Vegas –
naturally, a major pool mecca. In fact, Miles Franklin’s good friend
Kerry Lutz – of the Financial Survival Network –
interviewed him yesterday, an extremely engaging dialogue with a true sports

played a round of golf, where I observed first-hand the superior hand/eye
coordination of professional athletes. Just as professional actors
seem to also be talented singers, comedians, and dancers, professional
athletes tend to seamlessly transfer their skill sets from one sport to the
next. And better yet, John was invited to compete in a Livestream
pay-per-view match this weekend, which I was privileged to watch last night
from a Las Vegas “pool studio.”
played a bit of pool in my time, so I am well aware – like golf –
of how difficult it can be. Pool is America’s second most
popular sport, and religiously worshipped in Asia. Yet, 99% of all
players have not a clue how to “move” the cue ball.
In other words, sinking balls is a part of the game, but “moving
the ball” equally important. Last night, I watched John and 2001 U.S.
Open nine-ball champion Corey “Cash Money” Deuel
“duel” it out – an astonishing display of ball control and
nerves – giving me a new-found respect for those with the talent
and motivation to become World Champions…

marketing Precious Metals. Thus, it made me proud to see the words
“Miles Franklin” on John Schmidt’s shirt!
YOURSELF, and do it NOW!
