Billionaires.

Probably the most envied people group on the planet. The people who you look at and think:

Man, if only I could be like them.

Well, now you can. (Kinda — read on to find out what I mean).

You see, billionaires don’t become billionaires simply by waking up one morning and deciding, “Today, I will become a billionaire.”

If only it were that easy.

What really happens: these people have a plan. An extremely detailed, meticiously created plan for success. They have strict guidelines they live by, and (almost) never deter from.

Right about now, you’re probably thinking that it would be super-cool to know what exactly these guidelines are.

And now, you can. Over the years, multiple billionaires have been free and generous with their advice, and I’ve collected 50 such lessons from said billionaires and put them together in this post (along with a little implementation advice for each one).

By following these billionaire tips, I guarantee* that you’ll become a billionaire (or, in the very least, a successful entrepreneur).

*Legal disclosure: I am not liable in the event that you follow these tips and do not see 9-figure returns. But, y’know, I’m rooting for you.

Shall we begin?

BUSINESS ADVICE

1.”Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.” — Bill Gates

So, so true. Your company’s most unsatisfied customers — the ones who are downright disgusted with your product — are the ones who know your product’s flaws best.

Find them. Learn what they hated about their purchase and what changes they would recommend, then take their advice and build a better product.

2. “Rule #1: Never lose money. Rule #2: Never forget rule #1.” — Warren Buffet

Anything that makes your business lose money is no good. If you aren’t seeing returns from a strategy, either improve it dramatically or throw it out the window altogether.

Not my idea. Warren Buffet’s.

3. “You can’t just ask customers what they want and then give it to them. By the time you build it, they’ll want something new.” — Steve Jobs

This man, having been the founder of Apple and all, ought to have known a thing or two about the relationship between innovation and customers. Pretty soon, there will probably be more iPhone models around than you can shake a stick at (don’t shake sticks at iPhones, though — that’s weird).

While your customers’ recommendations are no doubt crucial to improving your product, you can’t build in every single thing that would be “nice to have”. Instead, when innovating with your product, you need to focus on adding the features that you think will have the greatest impact on increasing its value.

Note: this tip isn’t contradictory to tip #1. Unsatisfied customers don’t tell you what they want, they tell you what they hate (instead of creating new features, you’re fixing broken ones).

4. “In business, by the time you realize you’re in trouble, it’s too late to save yourself. Unless you’re running scared all the time, you’re gone.” — Bill Gates

When in business, worry. Pessimism can help you identify potentially troublesome areas in your business.

5. “A business absolutely devoted to service will only have one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly huge.” — Henry Ford

Your customers = your #1 focus. Never lose sight of that.

6. “When you’ve got 10,000 people trying to do the same thing, why would you want to be 10,001?” — Mark Cuban

Innovation is who we are as entrepreneurs. We’re entrepreneurs because we’re trying something new. We’re trying to be different.

Keep being innovative, and never fall prey to profit-sucking, product-duplicating cycle of same old, same old.

7. “As much as you need a strong personality to build a business from scratch, you also must understand the art of delegation. I have to be good at helping people run the individual businesses, and I have to be willing to step back. The company must be set up so it can continue without me.” — Richard Branson

Learn how to automate your business by hiring employees to do the jobs that you do now.

8. “In your company or industry, work every job in that industry. It’s the only way of having a complete understanding of your people and your company.” — John Catsimatidis

Before hiring employees to run your business, remember to try your hand at the work of every job possible in your company. It gives you a better understanding of how things work in your business and how to streamline its efficiency.

9. “Ten minutes are not just one-sixth of your hourly pay; ten minutes is a piece of yourself. Divide yourself into ten units and sacrifice as few of them as possible in meaningless activities. Most things still remain to be done.” — Ingvar Kamprad

Wasted time is the enemy. When you’re working on your business, put everything else away and concentrate on what needs to be done.

Email, close. Facebook, close. Twitter, close.

10. “When there is a crisis, that’s when some are interested in getting out and that’s when we are interested in getting in.” — Carlos Slim Helu

Don’t be afraid to delve into an industry/niche that seems to be going downhill. Just make sure you do your research beforehand so you know you have the ability to turn things around with your company.

11. “Never count on making a good sale. Have the purchase price so attractive that even a mediocre sale gives good results.” — Warren Buffet

Pricing is one of the most important aspects of your business. Don’t wing it. Find the perfect balance, where any sale — good, bad, or mediocre — can give you good results.

Pssst: that means doing a ton of CRO.

12. “A good businessman must have nose for business the same way a journalist has nose for news. Once your eyes, ears, nose, heart and brain are trained on business, you sniff business opportunities everywhere.” — Orji Uzor Kalu

Becoming a businessman (especially if you worked a job in an unrelated field before becoming an entrepreneur) is a huge learning process. It involves training a whole new mindset focused on business opportunities, so don’t worry if you aren’t instantly able to do what all entrepreneurs/businessmen are supposed to be able to do.

13. “While strategy, market positioning, and coming up with a long-term plan are all important, focus on making the individual sales and creating happy customers. None of that strategic planning is any good if you can’t keep the lights on because you’re not making enough sales.” — Tej Kohli

I think we’re beginning to see a trend here. If you haven’t noticed it yet, it’s happy customers = profits.

Each and every sale + new customer should take supreme importance in your company.

14. “If you want to succeed, you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.” — John Rockefeller

Another trend: be innovative. Try new things. 99% of the time, the beaten path is not the one worth following.

15. “The biggest risk is not taking any risk … In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.” — Mark Zuckerberg

Business is all about risks: knowing which ones to refuse and which ones to take. If you never take a gamble, you’ll never strike it big.

16. “There are no shortcuts. NONE.” — Mark Cuban

That fancy new get-rich-quick scheme that practically the entire shady side of the Internet seems to be peddling? It doesn’t work. Stay away. Stick to hard work and lots of effort.

17. “The most meaningful way to differentiate your company from your competitors, the best way to put distance between you and the crowd is to do an outstanding job with information. How you gather, manage and use information will determine whether you win or lose.” — Bill Gates

Gather as much information as you can about your industry, your competitors, your company, and your customers and use it to better your business.

19. “When you innovate, you’ve got to be prepared for people telling you that you are nuts.” — Larry Ellison

When people tell you that your business idea is crazy, that’s a good thing. Embrace your lunatic status, and keep at it.

20. “If your cash is about to run out, you have to cut your cash flow. CEOs have to make those decisions and live with them however painful they may be. You have to act and act now; and act in the best interest of the company as a whole, even if it means that some people in the company who are your best friends have to work somewhere else.” – Larry Ellison

If you’re currently faced with a painful decision, choose the path that will leave your business better off in the long term. Yes, sometimes it’s hard, but nothing ever worth doing is easy.

21. “The man who comes up with a means of doing or producing almost anything better, faster or more economically has his future and his fortune at his finger tips.” — J. Paul Getty

Constantly innovate with your production process. If you can produce an equal product faster and/or cheaper than your competitors, you’ve got it made.

22. “Somebody once said that in looking to hire people, look for three qualities; Integrity, intelligence and energy.” — Warren Buffet

If your new employee doesn’t have the first quality, the latter two could end up harming, instead of benefiting, your business. Integrity is one of the top things you should look for in all job candidates.

23. “The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all but goes on making his own business better all the time.” — Henry Ford

Yes — knowing about how your competitors work and what they do is important. But what’s so much more important is how your company does things. Focus on the latter, and then start worrying about the former.

24. “Business is a cobweb of human relationship.” – Henry Ross Perot

Can someone say CUSTOMER SERVICE again?

25. “When you’re green, you’re growing. When you’re ripe, you rot. Are you green and growing or ripe and rotting?” – Ray Kroc

Try stuff that’s new. Delve into the unknown — the things that you have absolutely no experience in. Then, and then only, can you start to learn.

LIFESTYLE

26. “There has to be a balance in life. A balance of business, family, and the opportunity to learn and teach.” — Chuck Feeney

Your company is never the most important thing in life. Your family and the people around you: that is what’s important.

27. “Invest in yourself and the people you believe in.” — Patrick Soon-Shiong

Spending money on yourself is not wasting money. You must invest in yourself to see returns in your business — whether that investment means the new computer that will help you work better or more time for you to spend doing the things you love outside of business.

28. “Try to never to be the smartest person in the room.” — Michael Dell

If you’re slightly confused at this quote, no problem. I was too when I first read it.

But what Dell is really saying here is to surround yourself with people who are smarter, more experienced, and generally better than you. Surround yourself with experts, and soon you’ll be one yourself.

In practical application, that could mean joining elite circles (like paid high-level forums, for instance) in your industry  and networking (interviewing, exchanging guest blog posts, etc.) with some of the big names in your niche.

29. “The next day after I got fired, literally the next day, I started a new company.” — Michael Bloomberg

Bloomberg’s first job out of school was at Wall Street, where he stayed for 15 years until the day he was fired. Know what he did the very next day? Started a new company.

The lesson in that is not to start new businesses willy nilly. Instead, it’s that you should never let yourself get down after what seems like a failure on the surface. If Bloomberg had never been fired, he probably would have never gotten the opportunity to become worth $33 billion.
[buffet_recommended]

30. “Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.” — JK Rowling

They say that no one fights harder than a man who has nothing to lose.

A lot of Gen Y entrepreneurs will hit rock bottom before they hit the motherload. Accept your situation, and work to better it rather than sit around and gripe.

31. “In the end, we are our choices. Build yourself a great story.” — Jeff Bezos

Your choices — both in business and in life — define who you are as a person. Make choices that you’ll be proud to look back at 40 years from now and think “I did the right thing“.

32. “If you actually do something you love it’s a lot easier and takes on a lot more purpose.” — Mark Zuckerberg

When vetting a business idea, or even when you’re just trying something new in life: in most cases, if you don’t love doing it, you won’t succeed at it.

In the rare instances where you might actually succeed, know that you’ll still be miserable doing it. Is a financially sound company worth the cost of your daily happiness?

In one word, no.

33. “Done is better than perfect.” — Mark Zuckerberg

I absolutely love this tip. Admittedly, I’ve heard it quite a lot, not only from the mouth of Facebook’s founder, but it never ceases to be relevant.

So many entrepreneurs wait. They wait until their website is perfectly designed before publishing it. They wait until their product is perfectly built before launching.

You will never achieve perfection, so don’t cite imperfection as an excuse not to launch your product/website.

A “done” product that brings in $20K per month in profits is better than one being “perfected” that is still in the works and hasn’t been launched yet.

34. “Failure is the only opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” – Henry Ford

When you fail at something after trying your best, don’t be disappointed in your effort. Be proud that you now know what doesn’t work, and that you can now begin again: this time, with a higher chance of succeeding and less chance of failure.

35. “It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behaviour is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction.” — Warren Buffett

Trend #3: networking is important. Constantly try to reach out to people in bigger and better places than you are. Learn from them, emulate them, and soon you might be them.

36. “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” — Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

A follower is someone who does the same thing day in, day out. No questions asked; he does what he is told to do.

The leader, on the other hand is the one who innovates. The leader comes up with new ideas for products, new techniques to build them, and new strategies to market them. As entrepreneurs, we are meant to be leaders. Innovation is a prerequisite of living the entrepreneurial lifestyle.

37. “Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.” — Henry Ford

Attitude plays a huge role in our capabilities. If you tell yourself that you will be able to do something, then you will be able to do it (if it’s within the bounds of logical reasoning).

On the other hand, if you tell yourself that you can’t do something, then you won’t be able to do it. Either way, you’re right.

It’s crucial that you think “can”, not “can’t”.

38. “It’s how tenacious you are … that will determine your success.” — Steve Ballmer

Every billionaire has gone through times of hardship. The difference between them and the average Joes of this world?

They stuck with it, no matter how tough it got. Be tenacious. Never give up on something that you know has the capacity to turn your life around.

39. “You grow more when you get more people’s perspective.” — Mark Zuckerberg

Zuckerberg has a 1.2 billion user base to get perspective from. Now, you might not have those kinds of numbers (yet), but everyone always will have people around them that they can get feedback from. Not only feedback on their business, but also in general on their life. The more feedback you get, the better you know how and where to grow.

Did I say that networking is important?

40. “It is often easier to make progress on mega-ambitious dreams. I know that sounds completely nuts. But, since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition.” — Larry Page

Few people will have the courage to dream insanely big, and even fewer will have the resolve to follow up on their dreams. Lofty goals often mean lofty gains, so don’t be afraid to dream big.

41. “No one ever made a million bucks by being cautious or timid or reasonable.” — Eli Broad

Don’t play it safe. The moment you do, you neutralize any opportunity you might have had to achieve greatness.

42. As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.” — Bill Gates

Being a leader isn’t just about innovation and exploring things and ideas that others haven’t; it’s also got a lot to do with equipping others with tools or skills to do something (or in other words, empowering them).

If you think about it, that’s exactly what business owners do. They create a product, sell a service, or give advice that enables people to do something.

As a leader, you should focus on how you can help those around you.

43. “In the end, you’re measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish.” — Donald Trump

Lofty ambitions are good, but in the end you will be valued by how much you were actually able to accomplish. Not only does that mean putting in the hard work required to achieve your goals, but it also means having the persistence and patience to stick with something, and not constantly flit from one idea to the next.

44. “I’m the type that thinks if you don’t learn from history, you’re doomed to repeat it.”– Mark Cuban

Everyone on this earth is bound to make mistakes. But what separates the good from the great is that the great learn not only from their own mistakes, but also the mistakes of others.

That’s (again) why information and knowledge is so important to both a successful business and a productive lifestyle.

45. “You can’t be a good leader unless you generally like people. That is how you bring out the best in them.”  — Richard Branson

You can’t empower people that you hate. Learn to like the people you work with and the customers you work for, or you might as well scrap the whole idea of being an entrepreneur.

46. “It’s fine to celebrate success, but more important to heed the lessons of failure.” — Bill Gates

When you accomplish something great, by all means, celebrate. When you flunk miserably, welcome your failure as a learning opportunity and a lesson for life.

47. “I don’t believe too much in luck. I believe in circumstances. I believe in work.” — Carlos Slim

Leaving something up to fate is quite possibly the worst thing you could ever do. Make fate work for you — manipulate circumstances and put in the work to get the best result possible.

48. “Don’t aim for perfection. Aim for success.” — Eike Batiste

I’m a perfectionist, and I hate that. By narrow-mindedly focusing solely on perfection, I often lose out on easily-attained successes that would have been achieved had I simply scrapped perfection.

Don’t make the same mistake: your goal is success, not perfection.

49. “The most dangerous poison is the feeling of achievement. The antidote is to every evening think what can be done better tomorrow.” — Ingvar Krampad

The moment you start concentrating on the fact that you’ve achieved something big is the moment you start losing focus on how to do better. Every day, set aside some time for reflection to think about what you can do better tomorrow that you didn’t do so well today.

50. “Being the richest man … doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.” — Steve Jobs

At the end of it all, not even all the money in the world will make you happy. Money simply doesn’t have the power to buy happiness.

So don’t live for money. Live, instead, for the what you do and the way you make it.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

In this giant collection of tips from the richest people on the planet, we’ve seen a lot of lessons that can be applied in practically every facet of a billionaire lifestyle.

But we’ve also seen a few recurrent themes that, as evidenced by their frequency, are really, really important. Here are 4 key takeaways that I’ve identified:

Takeaway 1: Failure can often be more beneficial than success. To a certain extent, it’s good to make mistakes — if you’re doing everything right the first time, that probably means that you aren’t reaching out of your comfort zone to explore new heights.

Take risks, and don’t be afraid to fail. Instead, embrace your shortcomings and constantly focus on improving them.

Takeaway 2: Networking is huuuge. The elite spend time with the elite.

Takeaway 3: You don’t have to wait for perfection to achieve success. Mark Zuckerberg put it best: “Done is better (and very often more profitable) than perfect.”

Takeaway 4: Customers are your #1 focus. No ifs, ands, or buts. Customers come first.

YOU MIGHT NOT BE A BILLIONAIRE, BUT…

…why don’t you go ahead and voice your thoughts in the comments below? No, you might not be a billionaire (surprise surprise: neither am I), but we’re all ready to hear the tips, successes, and stories that entrepreneurs just like you have to share.

Biden Is Latest Dem to Support Ridiculous Free Housing Proposal

Biden Is Latest Dem to Support Ridiculous Free Housing Proposal

Presidential candidate Joe Biden is the latest Democrat to throw their support behind the ridiculous idea that housing should be free

During an appearance yesterday, Biden said he agrees with “forgiving” both mortgage and rent payments. He says this as the country struggles with the coronavirus pandemic and 38 million Americans are without a job.

“There should be rent forgiveness and there should be mortgage forgiveness now in the middle of this crisis. Not paid later, forgiveness. It’s critically important to people who are in the lower-income strata.” said Biden

Tara Raghuveer, housing campaign director at People’s Action, a political network devoted to grassroots organizing, aired her opinion. She said, “The tenant is the most vulnerable person in the economy right now.”

She added, “The alternative to not canceling the rent is complete bottoming out of the market. And tens of millions of people literally never financially recovering from this moment.”

Calls for Housing Relief

Biden’s call for rent and mortgage relief echoes efforts by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar. Omar introduced legislation that would bar landlords and lenders from collecting monthly payments. It would also impose late fees “through the duration of the pandemic.”

Under Omar’s plan, renters and mortgage borrowers who skip payments wouldn’t need to pay back anything once the rent and mortgage forgiveness policy ended. And any lender or landlord who violated the plan would face penalties.

Correctly, housing industry experts point out that allowing renters to skip payments also needs to consider the consequences of the landlords not being able to pay their own mortgages on the property.

“If multifamily landlords, particularly the small mom and pop landlords who own just maybe one to four units can’t make their mortgage payments and can’t stay in business, those are affordable units that are going to be lost to the private market,” said Flora Arabo, the national senior director of state and local policy at Enterprise Community Partners.

“Rent forgiveness without rental subsidies could be pretty catastrophic for tenants,” Arabo said.

Omar’s plan addresses these concerns, supporters say. It does so because it creates a fund for landlords and lenders so that they could recoup any losses.

Not surprisingly, Raghuveer’s organization, People’s Action, worked with Omar in drafting the bill. The organization threw in more stipulations for landlords to collect those funds. These include providing information on their revenues, refraining from discrimination based on the source of income, and other tenant protections.

Biden’s Impact

Biden’s support for the rent and mortgage forgiveness plans doesn’t really mean much. However, the biggest problem with these free housing proposals is that they demonize landlords. They let the tenants immediately skip payments, but force the landlords to deal with bureaucracy and red tape to receive relief funds.

According to the Census Bureau, individual investors own nearly 75% of our nation’s rental units, not massive corporations. Those mom and pop landlords likely aren’t any more sophisticated than their tenants. They would also find themselves in the same dire financial situation should they lose the ability to collect rent.

Bob Pinnegar, president and CEO of the National Apartment Association, said in a recent interview, “Rent cancellation proposals do not adequately address the problem and fail to recognize that many property owners are in the same dire situation as their residents — substantial loss of income amid ongoing financial obligations.”

Entertainment Companies and Retailers Could Face Mass Extinction

Entertainment Companies and Retailers Could Face Mass Extinction

Whether or not the country decides to enact official lockdown measures in an attempt to halt the spread of the coronavirus, some cities like Los Angeles New York City are taking their own measures to try and halt the spread.

Mayors in both cities ordered bars to close and restaurants to only offer take-out and delivery services.

On top of that, movie theaters and concert venues in both cities have been ordered to close.

How other cities handle the coronavirus outbreak remains to be seen, but it’s clear that any business that relies on people gathering in one place could face a serious survival threat in the coming weeks and months.

Here are a few industries and businesses that could face extinction in the coming months if the coronavirus outbreak become a full on pandemic here in the US:

Entertainment companies

The first ones to come to mind are theater companies if the order to close becomes widespread. The largest two are Cinemark (NYSE: CNK), AMC Entertainment (NYSE: AMC). Also consider National CineMedia (NASDAQ: NCMI) which runs all the ads you see before a movie.

Michael Pachter, an analyst at Wedbush Securities says “There is a genuine concern that [coronavirus] will limit theatrical attendance globally, whether driven by theater closures or fear of contamination.”

Also look at financial pressure being put on companies in the food and entertainment space like Dave & Buster’s (NASDAQ: PLAY).

Particularly vulnerable could be Diversified Restaurant Holdings (NASDAQCM: SAUC), which operates 64 Buffalo Wild Wings Franchises. With restaurants forced to shut down, the company could focus more on take-out orders for it’s popular wings and appetizers. 

However, with nearly every major sports league shut down, including the upcoming NCAA March Madness tournament, there’s little need for large orders of wings to feed family and friends at home.

Retailers

Most vulnerable could be the already struggling retailers like Ascena Retail Group (NASDAQ: ASNA) which owns brands like Ann Taylor, Loft and Lane Bryant.

JCPenney (NYSE: JCP) has managed to hold on a lot longer than many predicted, but this latest blow could be the final one for the company originally founded in 1913. The company’s footprint is now so small that any drop in business due to shoppers staying away could be fatal.

The last retailer is GNC (NYSE: GNC), the seller of supplements and vitamins. This one might be a “beating a dead horse” type of investment as the share price has already plunged from 98% in the last five years. But there’s never any foot traffic in the stores despite near-permanent sales and discounts, so this could be the final straw.

On the other side of the coin, if there are quarantine efforts put into place, it’s clear that a vast majority of Americans will simply double or triple their orders from Amazon for all their purchases. We will also likely see viewing time on Netflix soar. 

Also expect a massive uptick in business for delivery companies like GrubHub (NYSE: GRUB).

RetailMeNot's Five to Buy in February

The wintry temps may make you cold, but February deals are sure to warm your heart. It’s not only a great time to shower your valentine with roses and gifts, but it’s a great time to make other smart and timely purchases as well.

The shopping and trends expert for RetailMeNot, Sara Skirboll, agrees. “With the biggest football game of the year, Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day on the horizon, retailers will offer tremendous savings on a variety of categories — from TVs and TV dinners to all of your Valentine’s Day needs.

1. Play Cupid

With Valentine’s Day this month, shoppers might be struggling to find the right present that symbolizes their love. You can never go wrong with a customized gift made especially for them. This month, shoppers looking to go the extra mile for their loved one will save an average of 40% on items like personalized photo albums, picture frames, wall art and more. You name it, they make it — and just because it’s customized doesn’t mean it will break the bank. Turn to retailers like Shutterfly who is offering a RetailMeNot exclusive for 28% off your regular priced purchase.

2. Ding-Dong Deals

While some might make dinner reservations at the fanciest restaurant in town, many will opt to eat at home. Those who do can take advantage of special promotions and discounts. In fact, diners can save an average of 30% off all month long, so be sure to search the food delivery deals from RetailMeNot. Right now, DoorDash is offering 25% off your first purchase and Postmates is offering $15 delivery credit for existing users.

3. Flower Power

Everything’s coming up roses! According to a recent RetailMeNot survey, 46% of shoppers plan to buy flowers for Valentine’s Day this year, up from 34% in 2019. Many florists will be offering promotions and discounts to help shoppers prepare for the holiday. This year, retailers like 1800Flowers are having up to 40% off flowers & gifts and FTD is offering a RetailMeNot exclusive offer for 20% off sitewide.

4. Get Your Game On

Attention sports fans: Discounts on electronics are not strictly reserved for Black Friday! In fact, February is the second-cheapest time of year to buy a new TV. With the big game right around the corner and March Madness close behind, manufacturers will use those big-time events to highlight big savings on big-screen sets. Another reason for the markdowns is that new models will be released next month, so retailers will be looking to make room for new inventory. Shoppers in the market for a new TV should head to Samsung where they can get 10% cash back with RetailMeNot, and Best Buy where they can find up to 64% off clearance items.

5. Meet Your (Price) Match

Life can easily get in the way of finding “the one,” but online dating sites and convenient mobile apps are here to help. Those looking for love are in luck: Dating sites can offer up to 75% off enrollment fees to encourage singles to put themselves out there. Dating sites like eHarmony are offering 35% off all subscriptions and OkCupid is offering free membership.
