    What are your thoughts on spending money on vacation?

    It's a personal matter, but it depends on where you lie on this spectrum.. Lifestyle Biz <---------X-------> High-Growth Biz Lifestyle Biz: you value profitability over growth. You'd rather have a 4-hour work week with a nice income than an 7, 8 or 9 figure exit. High-Growth Biz: growth at...

    EXECUTION My Journey to 1,000 monthly active users

    Ahhh, okay I can feel myself falling into a place I've been several times before during previous ventures... It's this dreaded thought, "should I really invest time & money into a project if I don't think it'll succeed or become profitable?" Yesterday, I wrote down a list of requirements that...

    EXECUTION Starting my own Game Development Studio

    God I hope you have a marketing strategy planned. I didn't read the whole thread, but man did I mess that one up when I launched my game to the market. After college, I spent 3 months building a sweet little mobile game with LibGDX. It was my third game ever built and I had high hopes. I worked...

    EXECUTION My Journey to 1,000 monthly active users

    After the event yesterday, I realized a much better path forward. I'm still doing a pivot, but not all the steps outlined above. I'm keeping the name, I'm going to continue doing my own meetup events, and I'm going to turn the app into a tool to help people connect at big networking events...

    Big pivot incoming... I've learned the hard way that I might need to pivot to a different market. I decided to change this up from being a social thing for tech people to being a social thing for extroverted people in any field. People in tech generally don't go out to get coffee and happy...

    Can professional trading be considered a fastlane business?

    It's not the right question. Any business model can be considered fastlane if you're doing the right things. What's the better question?

    Can professional trading be considered a fastlane business?

    Ah man... that's a tough one. Maybe we should ask Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger or Ray Dalio.

    Power generation by using unusable heat

    I've fallen for a trap like this before so I feel adequately prepared to answer this. Let's call it, The "Brilliant" Engineer That Needs Your Funds Trap. There are two possibilities... and the shitty part is that if the engineer is smart enough, you'll never get any sort of conclusion. You'll...

    Monthly Active Users Update: 6 Although there are 32 total members on the app, most of them have not yet finished creating their account, or they are free beta testers that just signed up cuz they were a friend but haven't looked at the app since. My biggest focus at this moment is to sell...

    #1 and #2 #1) The public meetups are paid events. I might do free events in the future, but right now I want to make sure people are dedicated because... #2) The app isn't free. You get a 30 day free trial to get the value from it, then you'll be charged $9 per month. I'm doing public...

    SUCCESS! What Are Your Gold Stars? (How Are You Rewarding Yourself?)

    I'm trying to get better at this too. I've started creating "milestones" where I group a few of the highest priority items from my Kanban boards and then create a "reward" when I finish all of them. Typically one or two weeks worth of work. Last reward was a nice TV and speakers (I went without...

    Power generation by using unusable heat

    I don't think you'll find an investor here. You'll have better luck if you can get a face-to-face with someone that is currently working in the industry that has a physics background. You're wasting your time here, though.
