    Living in my Business with no kitchen or bathroom

    IDEA SIDE HUSTLE MINDSET 
    Business mindset: Why are you letting people in to record music for free? The typical business approach would be to charge for this. Basic logistics: Have you set your rates? Do you have a way for people to pay you? How is this supposed to work? Marketing: How are you getting the word out to...

    Ummmm... have you gotten that looked at? I just recently watched this video on Brown Recluse bites... and... seems like they can be pretty serious. You don't want to play games with your body or your health. Hope you get well soon! View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtVvtsPgfew

    Client chose an iffy business name and is worried about shadowbanning/censorship on social media

    MARKETING 
    Most people use NoCo as the abbreviation for northern Colorado. Why didn't your client use that? Most people in the area are familiar with seeing and using NoCo, so I doubt any other variant would get searched. Would it be that hard for your client to change to NoCo? Seems like a no brainer to...

    Otter.ai is good at that. You can can upload your audio (or record your zoom calls) and then do word searches for keywords.

    A howl of pain from the founder of Saas. How to acquire users?

    MARKETING SAAS / APPS QUESTION 
    In terms of getting the word out to more customers, my first thought is to look up all the VA's and podcast companies who help produce podcasts. For (almost) every podcast out there, it's someone's job to go through and clean up the machine transcription. Poor accuracy is a pain point. The more...

    The Worst (and Best) Mass Media Advertising...

    MARKETING CHAT 
    Uber Eats has run some recent ads that topped my list of disturbing/disgusting. Basically the point of the ads is to make the point that Uber Eats can deliver other items besides food. But each ad shows an actress EATING the non-food item that came in the Uber Eats bag. I think they're...

    The Worst (and Best) Mass Media Advertising...

    MARKETING CHAT 
    I like the copywriting, but then I watched the ad. This is a great case study for the classic marketing advice to "be polarizing." It definitely gives people something to talk about. My take: While it was refreshing to see someone standing up for common sense in one area, I couldn't look past...

    Is THIS the reason why young entrepreneurs are destined to fail? The problem I'm having with Fastlane...

    QUESTION 
    Great question! This is an idea that @Kak explores pretty frequently on his radio show. (@Kak any particular episodes you'd recommend for this?) https://www.thefastlaneforum.com/community/threads/kyle-keegan-radio-inspiring-entrepreneurship-and-free-markets.95326/ Another good starting point...

    Is THIS the reason why young entrepreneurs are destined to fail? The problem I'm having with Fastlane...

    QUESTION 
    Let me challenge some of your assumptions. Your Google search was "Average age of a successful startup founder." - Who says you have to wait to be successful at the "average" age? - What defines "successful"? You're working with the hypothesis that "domain expertise" is the ticket. It's good...

    Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency Discussion (And Predictions)

    HOT! CRYPTO 
    I'm not super up on these things, so can you explain it to me like I'm 5 to help me understand? Is this legislation targeting devices like a Ledger where people have their crypto in "cold storage"? What exactly are they voting on doing?

    Is there a way to get some business out of this?

    IDEA 
    So it sounds like you have the following in place: - A high-quality product that has a value skew (it's better than existing options out there) - A hungry market of potential buyers - A wide-open avenue where no one else is offering anything (Udemy) Now, let's correlate that against the...

    New to the forum, but not this life.

    INTRO 
    Welcome to the forum, Tahjia! As a fellow introvert I can relate. Sorry to hear you are on the verge of collapse. Want to share more about what is burning you out or what plans you are considering for how to break out of the situation? What kind of genres have you written?

    Anchorage vs Reno

    OFF-TOPIC 
    In a grid-down scenario, people in Reno will die from lack of water. People in Anchorage will die from cold. Pick which "worst-case" scenario you'd prefer to deal with, if it came to that. In a remote work, self-employment situation, good internet is probably going to be localized to fewer...

    Ways to make money for chronically tired or exhausted people

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    If you can read medical papers, one avenue you could pursue is doing research for copywriters in the health supplements niche. There's always a need for doing research into the studies that support whatever mechanism or angle the supplement is taking. Some copywriters do this research...

    Ways to make money for chronically tired or exhausted people

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    I was in a similar position for about 4 years. Doctors didn't offer me any help, either. So I've done a lot of thinking about it. Do you have the basics covered? A roof over your head, food to eat, etc.? Or does this need to start making money for you now? Assuming that you have the basics...

    Looks like I got in. Thanks for your help! I'm eager to try it out because Pomodoros have worked well for me in the past. Also, I'm curious to know if this tool offers me any upgrades to the productivity methods I have developed for myself (described in this thread): HOT! - MINDSET - How I...

    Quotodoro: How to be more productive and reach your goals. For entrepreneurs and freelancers.

    SAAS / APPS MARKETPLACE 
    Sounds pretty cool. Need help though... I opened an account, but it just gives me a blank screen. I tried hitting refresh, but it just made me log in again with my username and password, and when I did that, I got back to the same blank screen. I am using Google Chrome on a Windows 7 laptop.

    My mom almost died this week, please send some love so she recovers faster

    OFF-TOPIC RANT 
    I am sorry about what is happening to you and your family. Are you able to block all access to P? This seems urgent. If P is still communicating with your mother, things could end up even worse. Since they communicated without you knowing before, is there a chance they might still be in...
