    I am 100% disgusted with PayPal. A week or so ago they limited my account for no apparent reason. They demanded information about my business which I tried to provide, but some of their systems returned errors when uploading documents so I had to call in for alternative means to provide...

    Yes, but it doesn't matter. It isn't someone I can just cut out of my daughter's life. Not without it coming back to bite me in the a$$ later on. Another one of life's rock > Me < hard place issues. So I deal with it.

    I don't think any answer that doesn't come from yourself will be the answer for you. Nobody knows what you are going through except you. We are all alone, 7-billion journies of "me." You know that you are responsible for your choices and actions. That you have to choose to figure this out (or...

    I struggled through it. It's mostly just one person that causes drama. I'm trying to teach my 4-year-old good habits with things like food, behavior etc. But one person constantly undermines my parenting by rewarding negative behaviors (like fit-throwing), and by pushing every kind of sweet...

    RANT YouTube removes dislike button, potentially ruining the platform.

    Not sure why there are 4M dislikes. It's definitely annoying though.

    How do we do this!?

    Welcome to the forum. YouTube (as much as I don't care for them these days) is a much better starting point for this space than Instagram. Nobody turns to Instagram for startup ideas. That's why you're on this forum asking this question instead of asking it on Instagram. It wouldn't make sense...

    MARKETPLACE Freelance University: Solve Every Freelance Problem (Especially on Upwork)

    After claiming the #1 search position on Upwork for several niches: Brand Copywriter, NLP Copywriter, and NLP Brand Copywriter, I accepted a challenge to do something I previously thought impossible, to rank for one of the most searched freelance terms in existence... "Copywriter" Well, it...

    RANT YouTube removes dislike button, potentially ruining the platform.

    I feel like this wasn't quite what the author had in mind. Then again, maybe it was? :D I definitely won't forget the year YouTube became trash.

    RANT YouTube removes dislike button, potentially ruining the platform.

    Something will replace the system for quickly figuring out who is worth watching. Question is... what? Will people turn to the influencers they already follow to figure out who is worth watching? Will some kind of comments code arise like the way people use eggplant emojis in place of #penis...

    EXECUTION Offering a new skill as a service to support my FBA business

    Your proposals can probably be shorter. I wouldn't mention that you sell on Amazon, because the first question I would ask (as a client) is... If he's so good at optimization and strategy, why does he need to freelance? Also wouldn't talk about "other freelancers". Overall, your approach...

    If you only had $100

    If I only had $100 I would buy a nice pair of pants and a dress shirt and start applying to jobs... On second thought, skip the pants. Apply to remote jobs. Interview on Zoom.

    This is at the top of Google when I open it. I guess we are normalizing shitting yourself as a success metric. If you haven't shit yourself then YOU are the loser, not the president... I notice they didn't say she won the race.

    @Andy Black already laid out step-by-step how to create paid email lists. Don't even need money to do it. Don't need an audience to start with either.

    Funny timing. So far, this accurately reflects my experience from the Indeed experiment I'm running. This offers some additional fuel for the approach. Thanks for tagging me. :)

    I've been teaching my daughter the planets using visual cues, but until now, didn't have one for Earth. Usually, I quiz her about Earth by saying, "The planet we live on." Mercury is "The planet closest to the sun." Saturn is "The planet with the big ring around it. Mar is "the red planet" and...
