    How to structure an email subscription-based business?

    Ok. Let me make this simpler: 1) I'm building a subscription email service. Who is using a recurring payments system they like? Bonus points if you have a paid subscription email service you like. There's a lot of options, and with my newness to the whole thing, I'd love to run in the...

    How to structure an email subscription-based business?

    I'm starting a subscription-based product that will be delivered as an email to subscribers. Can you guys help point me in the right direction for learning about web/email/payment and fulfillment? Option 1: Free subscription. Put in your email, get occasional free content. This serves as the...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET Harsh Reality vs Pursuing Your Dreams

    I like this perspective. It's also important for us to distinguish between "success" as we define it, and "the most successful person at it sitting on Conan". A lot of times we use extreme success examples (Musk), but that kind of outstanding success isn't necessary for us to consider...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET Harsh Reality vs Pursuing Your Dreams

    His sarcasm is saying that doing everything "right" is no guarantee, and the advice from successful people is likely horribly near-sighted. We're terrible at identifying when we got a random or inherent leg up--mistakenly thinking others will have a similar experience.* 1) Learn to be...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET Harsh Reality vs Pursuing Your Dreams

    Or what about the pen-n-ink drawing equivalent of those fantastical hyper-real photoshop works? I'm thinking fairies-waking-up-from-dark-bogs-touching-brooding-dragons-snouts or sci-fi-ringworld-retro-dystopian-city-with-too-many-swag-hung-electrical-cords (that one would no doubt ship with a...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET Harsh Reality vs Pursuing Your Dreams

    Love it. And, for those of you visual people, it even comes as a nicely done YouTube animation: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKz095P7LdU

    NOTABLE! MINDSET Harsh Reality vs Pursuing Your Dreams

    I think that's a great idea. If I were trying to evaluate it, I'd put these pieces together: -- The qualities you see that the market is still buying -- Avoiding the qualities that are fading (adult coloring therapy books maybe?) -- A visual subject that is largely untapped in coloring books...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET Harsh Reality vs Pursuing Your Dreams

    I agree. I can't remember who said it but they said most entrepreneur failure is in EXECUTION (Maybe Seth Godin in The Dip). While we certainly can fail at our actions, more likely we simply fail to move forward. We (often implicitly) decide it's not worth our time or money to continue to work...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET Harsh Reality vs Pursuing Your Dreams

    It's hard to answer that without knowing what your product is. If it's a very oversaturated market as you say, I don't think you need to fear others stealing your idea at this point. And, if you're truly bringing your own unique value to it, all the better. No one can take your special...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET Harsh Reality vs Pursuing Your Dreams

    I struggled recently to give my kids good advice on how to analyze if the odds (for a business idea) are good, or stacked against them. What's a good way to "do the research?"

    Initial Idea for a Side Hustle/Business, want to see if it has "Fastlane" potential

    With respect to JohnnyBoy's valuable assessment, remember that JohnnyBoy doesn't have that need. But that doesn't mean it's not there. If you're solving a problem someone has, you probably have an audience somewhere. As a homeschooling dad, I can see that solving a need. But my caveat is that...

    Initial Idea for a Side Hustle/Business, want to see if it has "Fastlane" potential

    As a motion graphics artist (Antifreeze Design) and homeschool dad, I love the idea and have had lots of similar ideas for teaching people. (I love kurzgesagt videos) Buuuuuuut... One of the struggles to create something Fastlane with this type of thing is it's scalability. You need a way to...

    OFF-TOPIC Literally the worst advice EVER on how to make $1,000,000

    Clearly no one should be taking notes from his little chat. Despite the muddiness and fact that this clearly isn't how he made millions, I think he's trying to say: "Start with what you know, and keep growing your skills. Enjoy the process. You can do this."

    HOT! MINDSET Is marriage an archaic and 'scripted' ideology?

    In the Bible, marriage was invented by God. So honestly, I'm a little surprised at how much people (or governments) that don't follow Jesus hold it dearly. If you aren't a Jesus follower, why care?

    HOT! MINDSET Is marriage an archaic and 'scripted' ideology?

    p.s. It's terrible to hear so many disappointing stories about personal divorce, or that of their parents. I'm truly sorry you had to live through that. Ok, that said, as intelligent entrepreneurs remember that a poor marriage story isn't evidence against marriage. It's simply evidence against...

    HOT! MINDSET Is marriage an archaic and 'scripted' ideology?

    I read (probably here) that only 1 in 10 entrepreneurial ideas are a success. I've also read that fewer than 1 in 20 professional stock/currency traders are successful. 1 in 2 chance with marriage? Those are my best odds in my life right now. As I age, I get more clarity on what I've always...

    How can you know you like doing something if you have never done that before?

    The number of people who tell me they're working in a field related to their college experience has got to be less than half. That's evidence that students are entering college with premature ideas about what they want to do with it. That can be a major waste of time and money. The solution is...

    My niche - is it too small?

    Hey AciD, No, definitely not too small of a niche. I've been an AE pro for 20 years (antifreezedesign), and there are a lot of users. Interested to hear how it goes. That's great that you already have a course and students. You're well on your way!

    WEB/DIGITAL Need help picking red pill or blue pill. Am I adding any value compared to the competition? (demo)

    Being an amateur musician and an animator, I wanted to get into the space of creating beat visualizers and lyric videos for musicians by creating my own designs. This ground is already being well covered by some slick automated sites. I'm looking for free ideas on finding my niche/value add...
