    GOLD! A new marketing tool I'm using with ridiculous ROI

    Hmm. Thinking about utilizing this tool in conjunction with either RedX or SalesRabbit in order to cold contact residential homeowners, because I know the neighborhoods but not the phone numbers. It seems to me like a less intrusive way to make contact with prospects vs. Door knocking, which is...

    EXECUTION It all starts with a name

    That's a good question. I believe I do as this will be an online services/lead generation type of business. Think upwork

    EXECUTION It all starts with a name

    Due to the nature of this idea of mine, I'll have to be a bit vague throughout this process thread until it gets off the ground. Current goals for this week: - Settle on a name for the company - Secure hosting and a domain for the website, and have a functional website up - Create a rough...

    Help. Girl Issues.

    If you want to marry her so bad just propose already. Don't rush it, wait until the time is right. The sooner you offer her the choice, the sooner you'll have your answer, and the sooner you can move on. The reason you haven't done this already is because you're afraid of the answer. Make her...

    Help. Girl Issues.

    I'll elaborate. This is more of a generality than an absolute, but often cultures are incompatible. As a result, mixed ethnic people are not accepted as a "member" in either one of their home countries, they are always looked at as foreigners. If you had a half Chinese kid with a Brazilian...

    Help. Girl Issues.

    This might go against the PC flow, but seriously consider what type of life a mixed race/ethnicity child would have to lead. Neither fitting in here nor there. You do you man. Screw what ANY of us think. And, as others have expressed already, there are more important things to focus on at this...

    Edge Computing - the Future of the "Internet of Things" - Web 3.0

    Here a few videos about "edge" computing. The first one explains how it is likely to replace our current hierarchy of processing, "cloud" computing. So, instead of online services, your device itself handles the majority of the workload, before sending the most critical data back to the...

    Can You Take the "Dopamine Fast" Challenge?

    Excellent, I'm so happy to hear this challenge is something that you found value in. This just fires me up even more and I can't wait until NYE to give it a shot! "The little things" - the way you described this really puts me there. In our daily lives, with the hustle and bustle of modern...

    Can You Take the "Dopamine Fast" Challenge?

    Updated OP for clarity: 24h does NOT mean you must stay awake for the full 24 hours. The 24h includes your 7-8 hours of sleep. Get good rest before and after your fast!

    Can You Take the "Dopamine Fast" Challenge?

    Damn, thank you for the post. Truer words have never been written. Hit the nail on the head with my motivation for taking on this challenge. It's not as if I expect to completely remove dopamine from my brain, but just like you said, just to greatly lower the dopamine I'm receiving from...

    Can You Take the "Dopamine Fast" Challenge?

    Well, let me know when you figure out how to stop thinking, from a Buddhist perspective that is of great interest to me :P Writing your thoughts is part of the goal of this challenge. As for going for a walk, well I peppered that in there for variety's sake. I find walking greatly helps me in...

    Negative customer feedback , help please.

    Don't get down, closing rates in sales is commonly <1%. In fact, if you close 1/100 prospects, you're doing damn well. An important thing to remember in sales is to really pin down that target demo. Who are they? How old, where are they located? What do they do in their free time? Do they have...

    RANT YOU DECIDE HOW FAR YOU GO

    Nah fam, thank *you* for the correction. I was wrong, had to double check myself. The best thing to do is remember that not everybody wants the same path as us in life. And it's a good thing too, because without consumers, where would that leave us producers? Check out stoic philosophy if you...

    INTRO Only 18 pages in and WTF?

    Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plageuis the wise? I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a...

    RANT YOU DECIDE HOW FAR YOU GO

    Edit: I thought that was Descartes, I got "I think, therefore..." mixed up in my head for some reason. But touché, you're preaching to the choir buddy.

    Can You Take the "Dopamine Fast" Challenge?

    Personally, I'm going for hardmode, but I encourage everyone to take whatever day suits them best. We all have different schedules, after all! I like the group idea. We can do one for New Years' Eve 2019.

    Can You Take the "Dopamine Fast" Challenge?

    The spirit of the challenge is to have a full day to yourself and your thoughts. So the idea is to set aside a full day to commit to the fast. I should have mentioned, talking on the phone/at length in person is off the table. Conversation, while fun, also gives us that shot of dopamine. To...

    Negative customer feedback , help please.

    Have you pinned down your target demographic? Where are you sourcing your leads? How many prospects have you reached out to? What peripheral products/services could you upsell? What makes your business unique? Are you just selling for now? Or do you have a business model you are developing...
