I hesitate to use the word 'business' here as I do not encourage anyone to look at dealing as though it were a career choice.
It's much safer to run things as a hobby or a side project. You need to have other focuses in your life. Drug dealing is a
great way to work your way through college, but becomes far more risky when it's your only focus, and only a select few can
make long lasting, well-paying careers out of it without eventually getting busted.
Remember, drug dealing is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Once you get greedy, the cops start to take notice. Instead, my
recommendation is to keep it small and safe, just hooking up your friends, and be content with the small part you're doing
to help fight government oppression.
Having said all that, it's time we be honest with ourselves and admit that most of us aren't dealing drugs to be noble
and fight tyranny; we're doing it to make money.
So for those of you who wish to grow larger, my recommendation is to take it slow and steady. Get used to buying quarter
pounds before you start buying half pounds. And be careful who you buy from. Don't forget your safety just because you're
looking for a bigger profit. I've seen a lot of dealers become intoxicated with the money and popularity, and just the thrill
of making bigger and bigger deals, until they become too big for their britches and wind up going down hard. This happened
to me as well.
I suggest a good rule of thumb to be, when you start averaging more than two or three deals per day it's time to make a
change. Start refusing the smaller sales, especially the five and ten sacks. For every sale you make, you draw attention to
yourself, but selling an ounce doesn't attract much more attention than selling a twenty sack, but the profit is much greater.
Most dealers never sell five and ten sacks except in very special circumstances, and only sell twenty sacks to close friends.
But you must remember to be firm. When you make the decision that you've got too many people coming by your house and you
need to quit selling twenty sacks, you'll probably have a few people who keep asking for twenties and even one or two who
get mad about it. Be nice about it. Make it clear that it's nothing personal (even if it is something personal) and they're
welcome to buy forties instead of twenties.
Another option is to give your smaller customers to another dealer who buys from you, thereby increasing the demand for
your larger quantities.
Remember not to get carried away with growing your business. Don't start telling people you can hook them up with larger
quantities if you're not sure you really can. Don't make promises you can't keep, or people aren't going to be interested
in doing business with you again.
And as your business grows you'll need to make and break connections. The fine art of drug dealing is knowing who you can
trust: who is your friend, and who is pretending. When deciding what types of people to do business with, consider mainly
the question of, 'would they ever narc me off?,' but you need to consider many other things like their intelligence level
and professionalism. A stupid and careless customer or supplier can quickly attract the police to your house.
