    Stripe, Atlas, Firstbase, and such services. Can anyone share their experiences?

    IDEA EXECUTION 
    I hire people from Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and India, most times I pay them through Upwork, but sometimes I pay them through WorldRemit. Do you have clients that you have completed work for who are looking to pay you right now? If not, you may not have the need to incorporate yet, you need to get...

    How to monetize an app which is not a SaaS?

    MARKETING SAAS / APPS 
    As others have suggested, grow the user list first. To do this, think about other ways you can make this app useful. The holiday is coming, can you provide gift ideas? Take a look at this app, all it does is provide people travel packing list suggestions and it makes more than $6K monthly...

    Journey to top 20% as a solopreneur

    EXECUTION 
    Big Hi 5 for all the action you have taken. Your actions will definitely lead to results. Focused actions tend to lead to results more predictably, and it does not appear to me that your actions are concentrated. Regardless of what path you take, from my experience, it takes a lot of focused...

    I'm Here for My Three Sons

    INTRO 
    Welcome. I applaud your desire to share enlightening information with your boys. As Les Brown says, it's not what you leave behind for your kids that matters, it's what you leave in them. As a father of three myself, I am very deliberate in making sure I leave meaningful information and example...

    Elementor Pro or Code with Angular?

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    Both @George Appiah and @alfosua have already answered your question. The simple answer is to use WordPress or any COTS (Commercial Off-the-shelf Software). As a Software Engineer who earns a living writing code, I want to triple emphasize that you do not learn Angular or learn to code so...

    Can we smoke weed in the entrepreneurial world?

    HOT! MINDSET 
    Don't smoke weed. Because I never have and never will. There you have it, you asked us to tell you how to live your life. The real answer is that it's up to you. As a client I would prefer to deal with a vendor who does not smoke weed. Personal preference.

    Udemy censored my tinder texting course

    RANT 
    Too bad, that is what happens when you play in a platform you don't own. Commandment of control. I have all but abandoned my Udemy course because it's now dated. I am recreating them now and will publish on my own domain for reasons like this.

    Breakdown of a CV that worked

    Very succinct with relevant keywords that will catch the attention of front line HR/ recruiters scanning for those skills and the automated filters for the same keywords. I started adding list/links of recent projects to mine and that has seemed to increase the response rate. Thanks for sharing.

    First business idea -- consumer technology, web design, or pressure washing?

    IDEA 
    Kudos on narrowing down your choices of business ideas. I know it can be a chaotic process. Given that you are still bound to a cubicle, I would recommend a service that can be rendered from home. So that would be the Web Design business. I know it is saturated, but don't let that deter you. I...

    Really glad to hear, it is taking everything in me to keep going into day 5!. I hope it gets better. My arms are sore. I am 46 and 280lb so that is a lot of weight to push up. But I am committed to jump-starting my weight-loss and active lifestyle goal! Your story is inspiring.

    Mr. Trash's journey to personal & financial freedom.

    EXECUTION 
    Do it! Just know that it is a good job application, if you do a good job, someone in Salesforce will notice you and hire you to join their training team. That is a good best-case scenario. The reality is that third parties can't create better training than the platform owner. By the time you...
