    Slowlane Has anyone here been a business broker ?

    Business brokers are no different than real estate brokers. You're selling something in exchange for a commission. There's a couple business broker offices in my town. It would seem to me that there's not much money in them. Listings are few, commissions are low. I would think it would be easier...

    Slowlane Lost my job, now what?

    Spill the beans on what goes on at a dealership, how to get the best deal and how to tell if you're being ripped off, etc. I'd pay money to know the facts.

    Fastlane Yeti Coolers = $100MM in sales

    Just a reminder. You don't have to have an original idea to make a fortune. These two brothers started Yeti Coolers in 2005. They simply wanted a more robust cooler you could stand on and that could take a beating. They did not invent the cooler, they did not reinvent the cooler, just simply...

    Getting Your Product into Retailers

    Buyer gets product from you and they pay the shipping. Way too much triangulation and middle men going on any other way and you are just asking for a stack of problems that you will have no control of if you go that route. How do you know what you order is even what came on the boat? I'd hate to...

    Slowlane Look at all the Slowlane haters....LOL

    Was reading this article on Yahoo about this 9 year old girl from Galveston, TX who had an idea for a line of flip flops. Obviously being nine years old, there's not a whole lot she can do.

    So all of your sofas are custom built and you don't like the name because it sounds "cheap"? Everyone seems to know you as "Sofas 4 Less" and you have great reviews and that's the name people are calling you. You have customers who you have already paid for and are tooting your horn. Keep all...

    Employees come to home?

    Not sure where you live, but a lot of self storage places have small "office-warehouse" on site you can rent also. These will be like a 8x8 office with a 20x20 connected warehouse. Normally no contract, month to month and rent is pretty cheap. $125/MO, or so depending on the unit size, location...

    How to get my product in BestBuy, GameStop, RadioShack etc?

    Why waste time chasing Best Buy? Their main competition is Amazon (Amazon is killing them). And it takes nothing to get your items on Amazon. That said, all retail stores have some form of "vendor program" that's a total open door. Everyone from Wal Mart to Walgreens on down has one. There's...

    Buying a gas station

    The demand for gas is going nowhere. Especially NOT in 5 years. Maybe in 50 or 75 years. Battery technology is still not that great. They are heavy, toxic and expensive. There's just no reliable cheap replacement for fossil fuels yet.

    WEB/DIGITAL Need advice on starting a video course.

    When making videos, audio quality is more important than video quality. Bad video with great audio looks better than great video with bad audio. Any decent 3CCD chip video camera will be fine. A used Canon GL2 would be a great starter. Whatever you get, you want it to have an XLR audio input so...
