    EXECUTION My journey to $1m / year income

    I like it... thanks for the advice. Which VA service would you recommend, if you’ve used one yourself before?

    EXECUTION My journey to $1m / year income

    Good feedback. To that end I've started to think about attending some meetup and networking events. Hopefully I can start to reach out to people who may at least know someone else who could use my companies services. Totally agree that once we get things warm it will be easier. Right now it's...

    I want to start a movie production company which will have branches all across the globe in 5-10 years.

    This would be a hard road. The movie industry is dominated by multi-billion dollar companies like Disney, Warner Bros, etc. so it really depends on what your end goal looks like when you mention transforming the industry. Nothing is impossible but some things are close to impossible. :)

    EXECUTION My journey to $1m / year income

    Thanks for the interest. Also no clue how I'll do this without cold-emailing. :) I'm getting my head around the inevitability of this. Right now my outreach is taking place on LinkedIn- finding decision makers (CEOs, etc) at architecture firms but it is sloooow going since this is me reaching...

    EXECUTION My journey to $1m / year income

    Thanks for your reply. Agreed. I actually have a spreadsheet that I'm using to plan this stuff out- it goes month-by-month through the next 6 years- making some assumptions about acquired businesses and what that will mean for Fastlane income, when my wife and I will be able to quit our jobs...

    Also an unrelate thought / question. Where do we think the market place for online businesses is itself going? I would imagine as time goes on there will be more businesses for sale than there are today, owing to the natural growth of the internet and IT (in the case of SaaS), and perhaps as the...

    GOLD! From 0 To $240,000 Per Year PROFIT In 18 Months

    Was just thinking about this today myself. I actually have a hard time understanding why someone would want to sell an asset that's doing well. I have a short list of possible reasons: (Unsubstantiated) fear that their business won't always be profitable, or is about to go down soon (probably...

    EXECUTION My journey to $1m / year income

    Hi all, I’ll be using this space to host my overall progress as I transition into the fast lane. My hope is to collect feedback on my work and on specific problem areas / questions I have, and to keep myself accountable to hitting progress milestones… also just share generally with the...

    Your reasoning sounds pretty good for taking on the consulting. I'd just caution that this type of work (1:1 time to money trade) has a potential opportunity cost associated with it. If you really believe that there won't be a greater opportunity in terms of where you allocate your time- you...

    Agreed. I think making such blanket statements are quite limiting. Remember that when MJ got into the limo business there were already several large limo based websites out there. I think it's more about the quality of your product, service, problem you're solving... i.e. execution.

    We've been PM-ing on the topic of course, but just to throw my hat in the ring- I'm also interested so happy to hear more, should something come together. :thumbsup:

    EXECUTION Building a brand

    I've thought about that briefly but I hesitated on going that far as I think it would require a large time investment to keep up- and prevent me from taking a business to scale. I'm also not versed whatsoever in the music industry from a business front, so would be worried about that. Thanks...

    Congrats @richardd, really fun to watch you work. You'll soon need to update the subject of this thread to $264,000 in 19 months. :)

    EXECUTION Building a brand

    Hi folks, just wanted to post an update. Started outreach to a few musicians and artists to conduct interviews. Secured one, two others have not responded (likely due to the fact that my site is totally unknown still... something I hope to change!) I've gone through a few passes at SEO on the...

    EXECUTION Building a brand

    This is actually a great suggestion, thanks! I only worry about the "T" in the "CENTS" model, it could end up being a time drain, but I can't argue that it would make my brand / site stand out and begin to make some ripples in the niche community.
