    How to turn my "Specialized skill" into a "Specialized unit"

    Indeed, maybe having something on Youtube could be a solution. The challenge would be to find a way to differentiate because there is already plenty of similar content there. In real life, my main differentiator is that I come to people's place to fix their phone. So it's very convenient for...

    How to turn my "Specialized skill" into a "Specialized unit"

    Hi everyone, I've been fixing iPhone's screens for a few years now. I started in high school then during my studies at the university and now I'm doing it as a side hustle after my "regular" job. Using Facebook ads, I can successfully find a few customers every week which generates a decent...

    Side hustle pricing. What's the value of your free time?

    This reasoning is indeed fair and correct. The less free time you have available, the more you will value it. That's how everybody would work. Let's say you need 8 hours of sleep and you only have 9 hours of free time available in your day, someone will have to offer you a higher hourly wage...

    Thank you Andy, give me time to read your thread and I'll get back to you then!

    How to be perceived as legitimate when starting a business?

    Probably because you didn't look desperate for anybody to hire you? You were not trying to convince anybody to work with you because you didn't need them to work with you? I feel it a bit hard to convince potential customers that they are the ones who need you and not the other way around when...

    How to be perceived as legitimate when starting a business?

    Thank you all for your actionable propositions, I will probably try a bit of everything and see if it is enough to find my first customer in that sector.

    How to be perceived as legitimate when starting a business?

    Hello guys, I'm asking you this question today because it is something that I know for a fact is difficult. When approaching future customers to sell them a service you just started offering, they will often ask to see examples of what you can do and what you did for other people before them...

    EXECUTION I Will Do It✓, I'm Going To Do It, I'm Doing It, I Did It

    Thank you for the update, A way to find how to innovate in your niche would be to look at the negative review of similar products to the ones you want to sell. Amazon is probably the place to start but you have many others. Customers might identify pain points that you can take advantage of.

    GOLD! I've Read UNSCRIPTED!

    I just finished the book 15 minutes ago. 3 weeks ago, I decided to finally read Unscripted (2 years after having read TMF). Unfortunately, I can't remember the exact event that made me decide to go for it. Thank you MJ for the 2 inspiring books. Some chapters really were eye-openers for me and...

    Great way to start outsourcing or to find freelancers that will work for you

    This idea was not to make a video of it but to do it and keep the results for yourself of course. Yes, I also thought this could happen but then I guess there is nothing you can do about it, you'll find out if you hire that guy again and he doesn't deliver the same value the next times. I was...

    Great way to start outsourcing or to find freelancers that will work for you

    In my opinion, it's not about getting the money back straight away. The goal would be more to find a reliable person to outsource your work to for a good price. On the long run, it is certainly worth the investment. You can also start small, you don't have to spend $1500 to run this kind of...

    Great way to start outsourcing or to find freelancers that will work for you

    I just went through this video and I think the process displayed on the video is probably one of the best way to start outsourcing any services you are offering to your clients. View: https://www.youtube.com/embed/t1QRdhVCzeA In the video, that guy Daniel Schiffer selects around 10 video...
