  • [01:40] Whereas Neil had success within the first three months, it would take people a year to do the same today.
  • [02:18] Costs of paid ads have gone up and bigger brands drive prices even higher.
  • [03:00] What people were willing to spend years ago, was a lot less than you would have to spend today.
