    GOLD! I've Read The Millionaire Fastlane!

    I've read the book a few times and I LOVE it! It's simply one of the best business books out there. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk

    HOT TOPIC What is your life like without a college degree?

    I just turned 21 recently and I decided that skipping college was the right decision for me straight out of High School. While I don't have enough time behind my actions to really properly analyze whether or not the choice was a good one objectively, I can say that so far I'm super glad that I...

    Supplier China vs India

    The key to finding good suppliers on Alibaba is only doing business with gold suppliers and suppliers that accept paypal. Once you have these two must-have requirements out of the way, you can weed out the good suppliers from the bad ones with a well-prepared list of questions to ask them...

    Getting My First Credit Card

    The key here is mindset. Most people tend to apply the sidewalk methodology to credit cards- "I'll buy whatever I want right now and then worry about paying it off later." (I've also been guilty of this a few times.) This of course always backfires, getting credit cards a bad rep in the...

    Son How Do You GET THINGS DONE??

    I just checked out Xmind and I absolutely love this software! Once you start brainstorming and "mind mapping" on Xmind, it's crazy to see the amount of stuff you come up with. Just wanted to drop in to thank you for referring such an awesome software :)

    Getting My First Credit Card

    First of all, did you know that you don't have to give your pin at stores and can instead use your debit card as credit? I'm always surprised to learn that so many people don't know about this. When using your debit card, simply ask the cashier to do credit instead and they'll lead you from...

    Son How Do You GET THINGS DONE??

    What an amazingly useful post! It's so important to maximize your time. So many people complain about not getting enough work done and usually it's due to not having a proper system in place to make the most of the time you have.

    I want to create a company and sell it ASAP

    It's good to be confident, but fact is that amazing ideas aren't worth anything by themselves and do not translate to success. Everyone comes up with "the most amazing idea ever" once in a while but only the ones that implement the idea, and implement it WELL end up getting the success...

    EXECUTION Investing in an Office- Yay or Nay?

    Alright, so I actually ended up looking at 2 offices! The business I'm starting is in the education field and is related to a service that doesn't exist. To reel people in with something they already want before offering my service, I decided to offer tutoring as well. So, the second office I...

    EXECUTION Investing in an Office- Yay or Nay?

    Thanks for sharing your experience! Perhaps, I'm just jumping the gun in getting an office. I'm going to go meet the guy to further discuss the terms to just get a good idea about all the other possible expenses if there are any (like some of you have mentioned insurance and the like) and I...

    EXECUTION Investing in an Office- Yay or Nay?

    It's an office in a building, so I won't have to get any signs. Also, since I don't intend on having any valuables there, I won't need insurance either. As far as decorating goes, I just intend on getting free furniture off of craigslist (I live in a city where people often give away good...

    EXECUTION Investing in an Office- Yay or Nay?

    Hello Fastlaners! Some Background: I'm a 19 year old aspiring entrepreneur. I decided to forgo college as I feel that college has no use for me. My income is between $500-$1000/month and all of that comes from doing private guitar lessons, chess lessons, tutoring, babysitting etc. It's a means...

    PUBLISHING Made barely anything from erotica, any advice?

    I didn't really stick with this, but I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents anyway. I wrote 2 short stories and so far I've made about 15 bucks from it in the past 6 months. 11 bucks out of the 15 came from Smashwords, and not Amazon. You mentioned that you only made one bundle- before I "tried"...
