    INTRO Bit about myself + Kickstarter launch

    Pretty cool idea! If you don't mind me asking, how did you create your prototype, and how much did it cost? I'm having trouble with that part

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

    Hi @biophase! Thanks for doing this. My brother, who never has a full charge on his phone recently gave me an idea. Why not make a lanyard you attach to your car keys (so you never forget it anywhere) which doubles as a USB cable? We spend most of our days close to a usb port anyway. Like...

    This might be a stupid question, but do manufactures usually answer e-mails over the weekends? I was communicating with one but they suddenly stopped answering.

    Thanks so much for your reply, I appreciate your time. I decided to start sourcing on made-in-china.com instead, as I've heard good things about them. I'll remain on the lookout for fake manufacturers though. :)

    Hi Walter, I already posted this question as its own thread, but you made me realize it would be smart to also put it here. That way it'll benefit more people. As recommended by some users on this forum, when looking through Alibaba, I only look for manufacturer who have the "verified supplier"...

    Manufacturer sells what I want but 3rd party reports says otherwise?

    Thank you Walter, I'll read the whole thing. :) I'll probably end up getting your books too if I still feel insecure about this.

    Manufacturer sells what I want but 3rd party reports says otherwise?

    Hi. I am currently learning how to import products, so that I can start an e-commerce. I found a promising manufacturer, but to be sure I'm dealing with a manufacturer and not a wholesaler, I decided to read Alibaba's report (they are supposed to be certified as verified factory). The report...

    O/T: HEALTH Constantly stressed out

    I worked 4 kitchens, and while it definitely made me way tougher (not only mentally, but my burn resistance is now unreal), I don't think being tough can replace a good life hygiene. And, I still have anxiety regarding the business aspect of my life (zen af in the other spheres though) Or maybe...

    O/T: HEALTH Constantly stressed out

    Ironically, this way of thinking is really slowing down your process. Think about it, why make money if life sucks a$$ anyway? Why get up in the morning and work when you don't have anything to look forward to in life? As much as making money is important, work time is always more efficient if...

    EXECUTION Getting my life together

    Never be afraid of wasting time when trying something new, it'll prevent you to do it seriously (which increases your odds of failing, and ironically, of wasting your time haha). Nevertheless, if the thought of a 75 days challenge seems too daunting to you, the miracle morning is only a 30 days...

    EXECUTION Getting my life together

    Really agree with JordanK, your mind and body are the tools you use to build your life. They have to be sharp in order to get through this journey safe and sound. I haven't done 75hard but I know what it is, it sounds perfect for someone who's getting started. Having a structured plan that tells...

    Time is ticking away

    Great read man, I hadn't thought of it that way (thinking of problem solving as a game) I'm very much at the action fake/can't find a business idea stage, but thinking of it as the first problem to solve in my entrepreneurial journey is a great idea! Currently working my mindset, so I'll add...

    Time is ticking away

    I like that idea, just installed it! Crazy how little time we have when we think about it. I only got 19690 days to live man, and my youth is not going to last forever either. Really puts thing into perspective... @triodine it's called death clock, it's on the chrome store
