    HOT! The Worldwide C0VlD-19 Coronavirus Pandemic Discussion Thread...

    Such a thought provoking thread! With all the justifications I have read and understand the point at intellectual level, I still can’t digest this thought. I understand the point that people will starve, families will suffer if there is no economy but price of that is letting some people die...

    Finally I completed audio book just yesterday! As I was listening to it I realized how I was asking wrong questions (even till my recent posts), had wrong focus (where can I find money than what value / solution I can offer). This is literally like a realization. Thank you MJ I now know, I need...

    Importing is costlier than Amazon. What am I doing wrong?

    Everyone, Thank you so much, this has been so much helpful. Taking inputs from this thread, I got the details required and indeed higher cost is because of Air courier (FEDEX IE).

    GOLD! Ever wonder how people end up in dead end jobs at 40?

    OP really touched me and thank you for taking time to post this story and your thoughts. I see myself there probably in slightly better position and better job, paying better $$$. But fundamentals still remain same. Based on my own experience I do believe many people do understand that they...

    GOLD! I will help you find a product to sell on Amazon

    I have a question and I believe this is probably best place to ask. If some one has limited funds say $1000 bucks to start with, he/she may not be in a position to go for modifications or improvements.
