    Evaluating ideas

    IDEA 
    You talk to a lot of people whose problem should be able to be solved by the product and service and if the solution I propose resonates with them I then invest my time, skills, capital proportional to viability. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Personal Brand vs. Manufacturer's Brand

    SOURCING 
    This was my path to Independent wealth. Deliver business management or information technology services for $150 to $250 an hour. Operationalize that service for 2x margin. An example might be delivering a Enterprise IT Cloud Governance model. Then once it's fine fine-tuned I productize it into a...

    Personal Brand vs. Manufacturer's Brand

    SOURCING 
    And this is exactly why I do not get excited about products. It was only ever one product I have created. It was software and I made dang sure that I got aquired within 3 years of making it and cashed out. I focus on creating Service delivery capabilities that I can pivot to the next emerging...

    I agree completely with Jeff. Deploy an open-source platform and focus on building valuable business content and delivery services.

    Lost... about to be homeless.

    EXECUTION HOT! 
    There are a lot of progress threads on this platform. I think a lot of people could benefit from the process you used this past year. Remember the idea is to provide enough details where someone could model after what you've done. You don't have to include any MBA jargon. Sent from my...

    The countless, nameless ones that are into stealth wealth. He has the flexibility to spend time with his family. They frequently travel and enrich their lives with new experiences. He’s doing exactly what he wants because he’s not tied down to anything.

    What Investors Really Want to Hear

    You have an "awesome idea" but you do not have the working capital to get going. You show up at hackathon/tech/incubator/start-up/camber of commerce meet-ups pitching your "awesome idea" to anyone that will listen. The investors in your area know each other. If someone is making the rounds they...

    What is the BEST "value" you ever paid for?

    EXECUTION NOTABLE! CHAT 
    Micro-service sites, such as fiverr. Allows me to get things done while I spend time with wife, children, extended family, friends, and giving back to others.

    The reality is Andy there are much fewer barriers for you to do all of those things today than you realize. So I'm going to say something that might sound really harsh. You choose not to do those things otherwise you would be doing them. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    I think the big push back is not that he's looking for advice to buy it - it's that he's already bought it and now everybody's pooh-poohing on the investment idea.

    Learning platform, too expensive

    MINDSET 
    You develop a contract with a client and then you subcontract out the training. You don't need to be a doctor to run a small physician practice you just have to be a doctor to actually practice medicine. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Learning platform, too expensive

    MINDSET 
    Everybody here has provided you with the same advice that you don't seem to be receiving. You are not going to create a learning management system. You do not have the money, you do not have the expertise. No amount of informal support here is going to make that change. What you need to do is...
