  1. EXECUTION To go all in or to not go all in?

    1/06/2019 - 2:30am After giving up and having more than 6 months away from my venture, I picked up my old prototype this morning and found a way that it may still work - a way that I completely missed the first time because I was so focused on it working another way. For the past several...
  2. EXECUTION To go all in or to not go all in?

    You're very welcome. Researching patents isn't a complete waste of time but most people waste a lot of time doing it because they're paranoid idiots. Being somewhat paranoid when it comes to your ideas is ok - but most take it way too far. To the point where they can't communicate to their...

    29/10/18 - Lessons and Final Thoughts 1. Right back when I started I was so overwhelmed by the whole idea of developing a new product and selling it that it would paralyse me and cause me to take no action. So I procrastinated on my idea for a while out of both fear and lack of knowledge on...

  6. EXECUTION To go all in or to not go all in?

    24/10/18 Due to my mistake in not testing the product early on I missed a major design problem that cannot be designed around without severely reducing the strength and function of the product. I have ceased work on this venture after concluding that a solution cannot be made without removing...
  7. Shopify Terms, Conditions and The Commandment of Control

    I would like to add to this that from what I have noted through my research - the most successful eCommerce sites are not built through eCommerce platforms. They are coded by developers and have no governing body overseeing them aside from the obvious such as laws and regulations. They have...
  8. Shopify Terms, Conditions and The Commandment of Control

    While shopify makes the whole process of creating an online store a lot easier than simply doing it yourself without the help of an E-commerce platform, from what I have read in it's terms and conditions you are handing over control completely and your business operates at their discretion. They...

    3/10/18 May have found a solution to the design issue by moving changing some measurements. I am back home with family and feel so much better. Having those close to me around again instead of nobody at all has grounded me much more. Currently making italian pizza part time with my little...
  10. EXECUTION To go all in or to not go all in?

    18/9/18 ~ A major design problem has popped up that I completely overlooked. Without solving it the product will not work as needed. This could have been avoided by closer examination when testing the earlier prototypes. Everything is perfect except the one thing that makes the product unique...

    I definitely will. Much appreciated friend.
  12. EXECUTION To go all in or to not go all in?

    26/8/18 CNC machined prototypes have arrived. Very good quality and can finally start to see something close to the end product. It works very well and only a few minor changes need to be made just to make it easier to use and improve the overall quality. Beginning revisions with the...
  13. How much time do you have left?

    A great song and an even better video to go with it. Sometimes when faced with problems or difficult decisions in life, try to detach and consider the bigger picture and your own mortality. Gain perspective and put things in their place. Move forward while keeping in mind that you have a set...

    4/08/18 Things have settled back down and I'm continuing my apprenticeship with another company. I am about to order the final prototype for my product after a few details have been confirmed with my engineer. Once I have the final prototype I will be designing packaging and getting some last...

    23/6/18 - One day before my 21st birthday ~ Lost my job yesterday due to a dumb mistake. Asked a girl out at work, got talking for a week and then asked if she was down for some fun (asked politely). She turned around and threatened me with harrassment charges so my boss fired me on the spot...

    12/6/18 Contacting manufacturers overseas and getting numbers. Fine tuning product design. Meeting with wholesalers to discuss steps required to have product stocked.
  17. EXECUTION To go all in or to not go all in?

    2/06/18 New prototype developed and evaluated. Product is almost perfect. Now looking into how low I can get production costs and if I can beat the existing product on the market.
  18. EXECUTION To go all in or to not go all in?

    Also moving again to a more positive environment. For anyone reading I cannot stress the importance of either living by yourself with motivational material around you or living with people who lift you up. Up until now I have not really been experiencing life. It's easy to get so caught up in...
