    MEETUPS 2019 Fastlane Summit: Preliminary Speaker Call

    These all sound good to me! Most are so beyond my current scope, just laying out the topic sounds scary. Like spending €120k a day... This Summit must be golden. @MJ DeMarco, will there be -as others have asked as well- a digital way to attend? (Live) streaming or after event download or...

    WEB SCHOOL Affinity Photo is (much) better than Photoshop. No, seriously.

    Quite alright with the gobbeldygook jargon, mate. Basically, we're seeing a friendly take over here, which makes CENTS. I have no idea about KiCad, but if it's similar to AutoCad it is amazing that it's free. The common thread is a company rising to power through a need well met by their...

    Setting up an untouchable foundation?

    Alright. So for those who want it, here's an update for the Belgian situation. I met with a legal advisor and a charity accountant together. Reasonable size accountancy firm where they combine different specialties. Which was awesome for the meeting as they could bounce off one another. Short...

    INTRO Sick & tired of being fed up & tired of being treated like a mule

    Hey guys, thanks for the updates. Been off of the forum for a bit feeling under the weather, which gave me time to think. I've been a bit of a dick, especially the way I set up my other thread. The purpose of business isn't to save tax money but to provide value. So my focus was off and I was...

    Setting up an untouchable foundation?

    @Bekit, you're an absolute gem! [EDIT: didn't get to gif to behave as expected so cut it]

    Setting up an untouchable foundation?

    Thanks. I'm mentally entertaining different possibilities, one of them that all of this will turn out to be a big joke and I've totally misunderstood corp law & taxation. Then again, Belgium is the country that beat Kafka at his own game. The meeting -somewhere this week?- could really go any...

    WEB SCHOOL Affinity Photo is (much) better than Photoshop. No, seriously.

    Thanks for the post, @ChrisV! I don't mind paying for a good product, but the subscription put me off as well. Hate it so much I checked their site during the vid. Can't say I'm the next Michelangelo, but I enjoy some good editing from time to time and at this price point I can stand by...

    Setting up an untouchable foundation?

    I would be the benefactor of the foundation, so it'd (probably) be a combo of paid-for-me and allowances. I don't intend to keep living in Belgium, so I might even use the foundation as a holding corp. That's more than the time I've already invested in the matter. And I asked to be on the safe...

    Setting up an untouchable foundation?

    Problems I would LIKE to have, though ;) Don't like to be caught with my pants down. It's a fine line between prepping and worrying... I'll raise your smart anonymous guy with a smart famous one driving your point home. "I've lived a long life and endured many hardships. Some of which actually...

    Setting up an untouchable foundation?

    That's defo on point, @Kak. Although, for me it'd be a bit further in the future. Still an army of one here. Good to know you enjoy the topic as well as I do. What did you do to minimize the damage?

    HOT TOPIC Fastlane Winter Games 2018/19

    I like @SWSSMSS's idea better :smile: Pour out a couple of mugs while being able to get some work done in between customers sure beats shoveling snow. Also, we don't really get snow most years. Just a nice, bone chilling cold. Temperatures are mild, but with the rain and the natural humidity...

    GOLD! I've Read The Millionaire Fastlane!

    Hey Woodie, good to have you on board. You're dead right here. It's a book that deserves serveral re reading. Possibly bc one changes while applying it as well. So it makes sense that you pick up other pointers while you're changing yourself. Like the "placing a rock in the river" allegory. I...

    Setting up an untouchable foundation?

    Thanks, guys. I do tend to overthink matters :innocent: :halo: What your mentoree "kid" is doing is basically how I want to, in time, expand. I'll start with web dev & hosting packages to not spread myself too thin. As I pick up skills or learn who to outsource to, I'll be offering more...

    INTRO Sick & tired of being fed up & tired of being treated like a mule

    @George Appiah, like your post about the "kid" a lot. I don't even need to "fake" European presence as I'm here already. Just get a minimum of paperwork in order and get going. Absolutely. I kept on tweaking my resume and made a personalised cover letter after a while. Even cold called...
