    Verbal agreement for a 300k $ investment from an angel. What next? Advice needed.

    Most importantly: Only ink matters. Nothing else. It doesn't matter what they say. Whatever you agree upon, be it the money itself or how they actually influence your business, do not under any circumstances rely on any agreement made verbally. It's in the contract, in the law, or it's void...

    Recycling gold flakes

    The extracted gold won't be of the quality needed to sell it directly to customers and will be mixed up with lots of other materials. You'll have to sell directly to the parting work, I guess. It's certainly better than just throwing that stuff in the trash, but if you calculate the time you...

    How do you personally shake off the feeling of making a bad decision?

    I accept the fact that most often in life, you make decisions based on imperfect information. And that's just normal. When it comes to making those decisions in the first place, I learned to literally trust my guts. For some reason, my stomach and my intestines make far better decisions than my...

    EXECUTION From Broke Addict to Midas (How To Start A Jewelry Business)

    I'd joke about making anus rings but I'm pretty sure that would be a viable niche according to rule 34. @Gepi: Didn't happen to me, yet, but I was warned by a local jeweler who ran into some trouble with organized crime and he said that's fairly common.

    EXECUTION From Broke Addict to Midas (How To Start A Jewelry Business)

    Hey folks, I didn't post in a long time. Long story short: I realized I wouldn't have a lot of valuable stuff to tell until I got going, my job was getting on my nerves, and I got a tumor removed (I'll get the biopsy results in 10 days...cancer corollary, anyone?). But I think I can now post...

    Remember how MJ said something about planning to sell apples but ending up with an orange slice factory? Well, you know what I mean. Anyway. My situation has improved a lot. - I found something I can do freelance and get paid for 60-150€ an hour. I'll probably discuss what it is at a later...

    Work on the business, not in it, right. But may I ask: Why would you need a delivery guy if you don't have the sales to deliver? Maybe you could come to an understanding with an Uber driver, for example? I'm pretty sure that would save you some money before you'd actually have to hire someone...

    Repeat after me: I'm an idiot for never having checked out Upwork when my freelance work dried up and taking a job instead. Always had it in mind as a smug Fiverr. But there's some good jobs there that pay a lot better. And a lot of jobs I'm really qualified for.

    Sure. Just drop me a message. And you're never too old to learn anything. You probably learn slower, but if you're going at it with passion, you'll be far more dedicated than the common computer science student. As almost always in life, consistency is of the essence. The spasmodic Hercules...

    My archery trainer said something to me that stuck with me and seems to apply to a lot of things. "The first time you hit the target, it's luck. The second time you hit the target, it's chance. The third time you hit the target: It's skill."

    Dealing with a mans greatest distraction.

    You're attracting the wrong kind of woman (and there are lots of those) if this truly poses a problem, or you come to a wrong understanding with them. Also, you got to figure out what you want from a woman. If it is "just sex", I can tell you that masturbation is the way to go. Because no...

    INTRO 6 years later

    Yes, that part especially rang a bell with me. People often ask me why I don't become a programmer, because I already know how to program. My reasons for this are: 1. I'm probably not good enough. Sure, I can get things to work, but far from elegant and I probably need far more time than a...

    I don't know when the last time was that you used Linux. It has come quite far. I remember the days when it needed days of tweaking before even running properly. These days, it works OOTB and leaves few questions unanswered. And has great UI, too. Certain distributions have reached a level of...

    11.52 PM. I wake up after falling asleep at 6:30 PM. I stare at the clock. Around five hours. That's ok. I should probably sleep a little more. The dog snores, shortly waking up, licking my hand. The dog. Who has been throwing up for weeks and finally doesn't anymore. Oh, that's going to be a...

    OFF-TOPIC I’m having a rough life

    Kid, you waltz in here, make one post, make a second post and explain to everyone how nobody here has it harder than you and how you're going to be offline because we all have boring problems. (Besides: This is a forum about entrepreneurship, did you read that?) I'd make a bet that most of us...
