    EXECUTION 2020 Goals and Update

    In the past I've sold items a lot more easily on Ebay. I don't see much of a point of etsy if they don't provide you much help with exposure and take a pay cut on top of that.

    GOLD! I have a problem with MJ DeMarco (Follow your passion gets a beatdown)

    It's about creating a business that will free your time to pursue any passion you want. If some of your passions align to creating a valuable product or service that is in demand it is an extra benefit or motivation.

    OFF-TOPIC Off Topic : Playing the Lottery

    I always wonder for the scratch tickets that they simply don't ever create a winning ticket so they never lose money on their lotto haha.

    INTRO Introduction - How to make decisions?

    I thought about it deeply. Most things aren't 'needs' instead they appeal to your emotions. Everyone needs food, but why they rather pay more and buy something 'tasty'? Nobody 'needs' video games yet they buy this art like crazy. Nobody 'needs' television, they want their emotions to get...

    HOT TOPIC Fastest Way to Build an App?

    Here's what I did to build an app in the past. Make a list of what it needs. Then search on stackoverflow and other places for examples of the smallest features that will be part of it like buttons, audio, graphics, etc... Each feature is then nearly copy-paste and some modifying. Also planning...

    Just got fired - Time for a change!

    Make your own piano video course. It would scale and give you freedom of time.

    EXECUTION 2020 Goals and Update

    My experience is I hated Etsy. I listed over a hundred custom knit baby clothes for my mom and only 1 ever sold. If I could do it again I'd try selling the same items in multiple online platforms to really increase the probability of selling.

    WEB SCHOOL How is coding a fast lane venture?

    Why did you quit with barely any savings on a whim? Then you learned to do web on the fly at the same time to make websites for other people? You should really explain how ridiculous this is and why it is not recommended to do. Do as you say in the book, but you didn't even follow what you...

    Move Back in with Parents and Save $$$ or Stay Independent and Gain Opportunities?

    You need to tell us your own business goals. Then figure out how the goals will better align to your living conditions. Do you need the job for it being relevant to the business you want to create? If you want to do an online business, then moving in with parents can be good so you can focus all...

    WEB SCHOOL How is coding a fast lane venture?

    There are other great paths instead of putting countless hours into a job. You need freedom of time to develop your business. For example creating savings then moving to a country where rent is very cheap. Another is moving in with caring family or parents. Another is getting a cheap camper or...

    WEB SCHOOL How is coding a fast lane venture?

    Thats only good if they value. My experience is contrary they didn't care how much value I provided. I was treated as a commodity or a machine that is easily replaceable.

    WEB SCHOOL How is coding a fast lane venture?

    So an eff this event doesnt matter? I had a gun to my head I was so fed up of working a regular job and getting nowhere. Regular jobs are built to exploit the masses. Most people say they hate their job. If they were rewarded properly they wouldnt be saying shit. It would be happy ever after...
