    I found something I finally am ready to start executing on!

    IDEA 
    Yeah! It's definitely been interesting as I realized I could avoid a lot of expenses up front because I don't need to build out my our facilities in order to get a good product out.

    Weekly Update Alrighty. A couple relatively big things happened this last week. First off, I ended up completely reformulating the balm to be all-natural and all organic. It smells great too. So far it's been working really well and I'm not complaining. I managed to pack it and make a label...

    So…. About time for that weekly update. Cause I kinda committed to it. Honestly, not much has happened once again. But I did talk to my college professor who is an entrepreneur himself and discussed the idea, and he actually pointed out a niche that I could target and advertise to. That was...

    I found something I finally am ready to start executing on!

    IDEA 
    You actually have a really really good point! I totally forgot how powerful Facebook groups can be! I managed to find a way to get survey responses from a non targeted audience, and if it's a good representation of the public, there's a really big amount of people that could use my help. I...

    IDEA 
    Weekly update Welp. Getting people to sign up for something. Even if you offer it completely for free seems to be a lot harder than I expected. Out of all 10 of the people that said they wanted to try it, I somehow managed to get no shipping info from any of them. My offer was simple. Let me...

    Thanks for responding to my thread! There's a lot of great stuff coming up on here as I work through things! I actually have a small scale test in the works, so we'll see what happens.

    I found something I finally am ready to start executing on!

    IDEA 
    Weekly update I'm gonna be honest. With Christmas and everything going on last week, absolutely nothing happened... I got incredibly distracted and didn't do anything, which is annoying cause I had a lot of free time as well. I can't even justify it. Luckily I just sent out to my followers...

    IDEA 
    This thread's idea of "pretotyping" is essentially what you said with Kickstarter. I love the idea, and I get the clever marketing ideas that need to be accounted for, but recently I've noticed MJ's ideas on testing or sampling for customers. Which is something I really thing would be good in...

    IDEA 
    Alright. I think I'm gonna start doing weekly updates so you guys can see what happens as I go through the "Desert of Desertion." Honestly I haven't gotten that far since last week on Wednesday, but I did do a poll on my Instagram complaining about the dryness of my nose every winter. On that...

    I found something I finally am ready to start executing on!

    IDEA 
    Thanks for recommending that! I don't think I want to bottle it myself since I don't really have a proper cosmetics lab to do it in. But my test batches early on will be at home. I'm mostly just bottling what I have at home so u can get some sort of "alpha" batch that I can start getting...

    IDEA 
    Short update: The test bottles for filling arrived today and I finally managed to fill the first bottle with it. Huge hassle. I'm gonna need to buy some sort of syringe to more effectively fill the bottles. But the bottles work well! One of the manufacturers that I hit up got back to me and...

    I found something I finally am ready to start executing on!

    IDEA 
    I looked at FDA resources and it does say that something is only classified as a drug if marketed to for non cosmetic purposes. So I think I’ll need to get creative with the marketing. Similar how that ice lotion stuff never strictly said much other than moisturizing. Edit: The active...

    IDEA 
    You mentioned fiverr in an earlier post, is it possible to get decent marketing materials and branding from there at an affordable price?

    I found something I finally am ready to start executing on!

    IDEA 
    After doing some medical research, I realize some of the things that I had, aren’t recommended by a lot of health experts to put inside of the nostril. With that sad but also helpful realization, I’m definitely gonna have to work on re-formulating it somewhat.

    IDEA 
    True. I do have an active ingredient in it, so do you know anything about what I would have to do with the FDA? It's already been approved as a drug, but I was looking around and it seems like new products including it need to be registered or something.

    Thanks so much for the input! This is the exact method that I'm planning on using. I'm strictly only contacting manufacturers to see how much it would take to even get the minimum SKU. I actually ordered a package of 100 cheap bottles for like $10 yesterday and I plan on playing a bit with my...

    I found something I finally am ready to start executing on!

    IDEA 
    Roughly 5 years back when I was 14, I had pretty severe acne, so we went to the doctor and I had Accutane prescribed to me. The issue was that it caused all of my skin to be incredibly dry and especially my nose and lips to the point where it hurt. I would be bleeding from the cracking that was...

    Payments

    After having read through the entire agreement, I didn't violate anything listed in it. I'm not the first one that this has happened to. It's the result of what I would assume some sort of fault in the system. I understand that the company is trying to protect themselves, but it's just a real...

    Payments

    To start, this is the best thread I could find for my situation. I've been wondering if any of you have had to deal with this. Last month, PayPal and venmo both permanently banned me from using their services, and after contacting both of them, I learned that they don't even have to tell me why...
