Pioneers Get Slaughtered & Settlers Get Rich

As simple as that. Pioneers Get Slaughtered and Settlers get rich.

So if you want to be the first and creator of something don't expect to get rich. Rather you can expect to get a learning curve and give the next settler an advantage. 

So what does that mean? 

Real Life Example:
If you are and you just sold your business to Fox News Corps. Rupert Murdoch who is a media mogul genius and than your a young 20 year kid who just moved out from Cambridge to Silicon Valley does that mean you can become a settler and build a brand off of the mistakes that your competitor (pioneer) made?

Of course you can Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook is living proof.

My goal was to rank for the search term "Connected Entrepreneur" the question. I posed back in April of 2013 was can it be done? Updating and fastforwarding to July 29, 2013 the answer is yes it can and is done.
