    Building an Amazon FBA Business During College

    EXECUTION 
    Amazon FBA ended up not working for me. I almost came close to losing all my funds due to my product listing being taken down the day before my payment was going to go through. Decided it wasn't wise to put so much reliance upon Amazon (who has a pretty good track record of screwing over...

    Idea needing feedback: keeping people accountable

    IDEA 
    So I agree having it be "easy" is better. But let me explain further into my strategy here on what "easy" actually means: Many workout plans and diet plans encourage extreme lifestyle changes to adhere to the principles of the workout or diet. A really good example of this would be the keto...

    Idea needing feedback: keeping people accountable

    IDEA 
    As an update to this issue, I've decided on how to go about doing this. I will be utilizing email marketing and funnel techniques, primarily inspired from books by Russell Brunson, to sell my own products in the fitness industry. Yes, I'll be selling workout plans. How original. In the sense of...

    Affiliate Marketing for SMMAs?

    MARKETING 
    [Idea needing feedback post, but wanted in insiders] Hey all, SMMAs have been quite the talk recently. The ease of entry makes owning a SMMA available for everyone and their mom. For this reason, along with general lack of interest in running a SMMA, I've avoided starting one of my own...

    Idea needing feedback: keeping people accountable

    IDEA 
    Yes, these very subtle mental cues can be extremely helpful. People just need to find the one thing that works for them and gets em going.

    Idea needing feedback: keeping people accountable

    IDEA 
    I wouldn't consider making the actual workout "easy." Sure, you can get the sale, but that's pretty immoral. The money is of course great, but it'd be a lot better if I can make money and help people on the way; more importantly, actual results will help long term success on my side as well...

    Idea needing feedback: keeping people accountable

    IDEA 
    Recently, my team took our first shot at receiving funding for the app. The elevator pitch was certainly short notice; we were not prepared enough. Long story short, we did not receive any funding for this initial pitch. However, we learned a lot and have some more ideas flowing. In the...

    Idea needing feedback: keeping people accountable

    IDEA 
    I'm back. Been doing a lot of work, failing a lot, reading a lot, learning a lot. The idea of finding a solution to keeping people accountable in the gym is certainly underway. I have combined work with people and we are coming towards a solution and making it a reality. This thread hasn't...

    Introducing myself: an Ex pre-med

    INTRO 
    Funny as it is, after just getting done shadowing a urologist, I saw most of the problems that you brought up. This particular doctor absolutely hated the administration. How he described it, the administration makes his life absolute hell. Throughout the days I shadowed him, problems with how...

    I failed my first business...

    Quick Update: I discovered that I can actually build the website using personal skills and plugins: it isn't as hard as I had thought. I started building the website 3 days ago; I've ran into some issues, but nothing too big. Currently, I am working more on running Facebook Ads (affilaite)...

    I failed my first business...

    Yes, I've actually had the site running for nearly a month now. I have been working on some back-end stuff, but still have a fair amount of blog posts and affiliate links up and running. I have done some dabbling with paid FB advertising. However, from what I've recently found, starting up...

    I failed my first business...

    I suggest looking at the threads on this forum, there are plenty of good ones about Amazon FBA like the one by @biophase . I found his thread the most helpful.

    The one by Theo McArthur. I thought it was very well put together.

    I failed my first business...

    It's been a while since I've posted on here. In all honesty, my first business, Amazon FBA, failed. It definitely was an eye-opener for me. When I heard about the failure rate, I initially thought "that's not going to be me, no way in hell. I know I'm smart and I know I am willing to surpass...

    Need advice on a specific idea to make my biz more fastlane-ish

    IDEA 
    The first thing that popped into my head was the 3D printing time-lapsed video, or even making the 3D model in CAD (or w/e service you use). I remember when I was younger I would always watch the 10-15min sped-up video of someone doing a photoshop drawing: it's very entertaining to watch. A...

    Got $10K? Amazon Wants YOU to Deliver Packages

    It's an interesting concept, but it's definitely something I wouldn't be able to start anytime soon due to college. I'm considering passing this on to my dad, who currently needs to fill a 40k sq.ft. warehouse. He would be able to completely outsource all the management responsibilities...

    Idea needing feedback: keeping people accountable

    IDEA 
    Thoughts on how to run the program: In order to decrease the reliability on the commercial gyms, I figure that utilizing a GPS system, as mentioned before, would work fine. It of course would allow people to cheat easier, but that would occur both ways. In order to decrease the amount of...

    Idea needing feedback: keeping people accountable

    IDEA 
    That would likely fix any tension people have in their mind in regards to me / a gym making money off them. Also a win-win, clients and myself get some satisfaction of donating to charities.

    Idea needing feedback: keeping people accountable

    IDEA 
    I discussed this idea with my brother-in-law. In theory, you can do this. However, it could create A LOT of tension with customers. Say if it's issues in which the gym is in the fault, people would be mad because they lost money. Say if it's their own fault and they lost money, they'll still be...
