    RANT Random Chat, Thoughts, Posts, and/or Rants Thread

    My memory of this may not be entirely accurate... Gamers have been asking for Diablo 4 for quite awhile since Diablo 3 was a huge disappointment when it first launched. It still has its issues and a lot of players moved over to Path of Exile, which is free. Path of Exile is the game that...

    I never knew how bad the system can screw someone until now

    As a Police Officer who casually browses this forum and struggles to find his way to a better life of freedom, I take some offense to what you say. I'm not going to sit here and defend the points you made or try to make excuses for the situations you went through that were unfavorable to you...

    Which are some books to get my feet wet into ... how do I call this

    A couple of my favorite books: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma. I have the Monk on audiobook and it is narrated very well. The narrator's accent just works right for the book.

    10 Years of Your Life - How It Should Change

    This month, 10 years ago, I resigned from my first full-time job. I was so miserable that I had to quit without a backup plan. It felt like I had the entire weight of the world lifted off my shoulders. I then spent 2 years trying to work things out on my own - living at home with my parents...

    Is there a solution for this childcare problem?

    I think I misunderstood the "in-home care." Are we talking sending a child to someone's home who has a daycare setup in the home with other children or having a 1-on-1 nanny come into the parent's home and watch the child on their own all day while mom and dad either go to work or work in-home...

    Is there a solution for this childcare problem?

    We send our daughter to day care with prepared foods. She is a little bit of a picky eater being 13 months old, but we can control what she eats. The day care we send her to doesn't do meal plans. I guess that is more of a traditional day care instead of being like an early child/toddler...

    Paralysed by Fear and Doubt - New Business Launch

    Seeing this post made me think of something I heard while watching a Jordan Peterson video: "You aren't going to hit something unless you aim at it. That's for sure. And lots of times people won't aim at what they want because they are afraid. The reason they're afraid is because if you...

    Warren Buffett... your thoughts?

    Berkshire owns a lot of smaller companies, one being Fox & Roach. Is that the same name you’ve been finding? Berkshire operates these companies in many ways, usually keeping the original name or trying to use the Berkshire brand for status. It doesn’t necessarily mean he’s running an evil...

    EXECUTION Bought 2 new websites from Shopify Exchange

    This is interesting. I never heard of Shopify Exchange - although I don't have any experience with Shopify either. Is this actually legitimate? It seems like quite a bit of these stores are dropshipping.

    How should we think about spending money for our business?

    I always look for free stuff and usually stick with that. I feel like I fall behind when there are successful people who say, "I took the course, it's really good!" They used their recurring income to pay for the course and used it to get further ahead. Yet, here I am spinning my wheels not...

    How should we think about spending money for our business?

    I don't have a budget or a cashflow plan. I don't have any plan. I don't have any business foundation right now that I feel is worth committing my time and effort. And that sucks because I have such a big vision for what I want my life to look like, but I have no idea how I'll ever get there...

    How should we think about spending money for our business?

    I think I'm going to hold off for now and re-evaluate. I guess I don't need it until I get more committed and involved.

    How should we think about spending money for our business?

    Ultimately, it's just thinking I need it to learn something and complete the missing pieces. Or maybe I'll learn some insight that will magically make the money start flowing in. Subconsciously, I'm action faking thinking learning something new will make the process easier. I have a bad habit...

    How should we think about spending money for our business?

    Sorry, I didn't forget about this thread. I've been super busy working through the weekend and didn't have much time for my life. I have the money for it, but don't have the business income to justify it. I'm still waiting on payment for my first paid website project. The idea was to turn...

    How should we think about spending money for our business?

    How should we be thinking about expenses, investments, or spending money that may provide a benefit in the future? For example, there is a $1,000 online course you want to take that could accelerate the learning curve for something related to your current business. This would include...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    War Dogs is one of my favorite movies and gave me inspiration to go out and try. I felt like a fraud, though. I had nothing to sell. I closed the business recently after only winning 2 contracts. I was solely searching one manufacturer on DIBBS. It was a race to the lowest bid. Was I...

    NOTABLE! Selling products to the military.

    This is a broad question, but what are some things the government wants to buy but can’t find a source for? Other than DIBBS, are there any other sources of open contracts waiting for bids? I know a ton go unawarded.

    Digital Marketing Agency, the new Podcasting?

    I've been following this thread since it started. I'm into web design and recently started learning more about SEO. I love the data and analytics of SEO and it's been something that grabbed me from the beginning. I'm a big numbers guy so playing with all the numbers has really pulled me in...

    GOLD! Moved to Scottsdale, Growing a Web Design Firm

    Dan, you mentioned doing SEO for a personal training gym. Do you have a recommendation for a course that you use and like? I just finished a site for a friend who does personal training and he doesn’t believe he will get any traffic. I’m trying to prove him wrong and set him up with some good...

    EXECUTION Committing and No Longer Selling Myself Short

    1) Right now, I don't know what I want to achieve. I know the short-term end game is to create a business that allows me to quit my job and live comfortably while supporting my family, to not have to worry about not having enough money, and to just live a more fulfilling life. I don't know...
