    The only three sources of business value

    An important source of business value is a well-rested mind that comes from taking appropriate personal time off. I intend to post 5 of 7 days, 40 of 52 weeks, so that I'll have that personal time. See y'all tomorrow!

    EXECUTION Journey through Presale hell

    I'm curious, how was the $15k startup budget used? What's the breakdown between R&D, living expenses, marketing, overhead, legal etc.?

    EXECUTION The Zero Campaign

    This is a good point. In many projects there is something that is easy, fun, appealing,natural to want to do more... and that we have to stop doing, when it's good enough already.

    FEATURED! Possible Blue Ocean? Affordable "tiny" housing park

    There are similar setups for what you've described, for people to bring their own RV's. The individual lots can have a little casita, with a regular kitchen and bathroom (the hardest rooms to get right in an RV), patio and picnic table, and storage shed. Community center has all the...

    The only three sources of business value

    Value Tip #3: NineWindows Today's little essay about value definition is an insight from a study of patentable inventions in the former Soviet Union. I'll have more to say about that study another time. Today we'll try out the Nine Windows Method. Draw a grid of three rows and three columns...

    The only three sources of business value

    My nature and skill set is to be someone who communicates, based on research. I'm a fast and prolific writer in general. I started with online forums in the early 90's, before there was the Web or social media. I'm mostly writing about things I've thought about for many years, so I already...

    WEB SCHOOL Under 18, know web design but can't get a contract because of age. Any advice?

    One quick note on your site is that it says, "(implied targeting to small business owners), you really need a web site." Half of all businesses aleady have a site. The owner could glance through your page, and say "yep it's important, I'm glad I already have one." They'll click away, feeling...

    FEATURED! Possible Blue Ocean? Affordable "tiny" housing park

    Several people pointed out the challenges if this is just a housing play. I think the potential would be to offer a lifestyle by subscription, not just housing. What if the community center including some kind of co-working, business incubation setup, as well as big community kitchen and...

    Hustling when sick? #noexcuses

    It came within months after I was suddenly widowed. Together, those experiences led me to a time of reflecting on what's meaningful and important to me for my remaining decades.

    Hustling when sick? #noexcuses

    Thanks! Surgery was success at completely removing the cancer. Follow up scans showed that there was no spread. A couple of years out now, still no signs of recurrance, but some lingering tiredness from the total experience. Since I completed the best researched treatment, lifetime risk of...

    I got an idea to start. What do you think about it?

    Look up the "how to make money by hosting parties" discussions! I don't remember the exact words, but you can find them with some searches. There are some forum members who have made a lot of money with their own parties and events. That would overlap with your whole scene.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, Rick. That sounds like a very scary time. Are you able to do a full day's work at this point, or not yet?

    Hustling when sick? #noexcuses

    The question seems to include several assumptions that I find alarming. The question suggests that: The flu is a trivial little illness. No illness can actually affect mental clarity, to the extent that work should be slowed down or avoided during recovery. There's an either/or dichotomy between...

    Invention

    Timmy, did you make exactly the same post in three different categories? Or is the forum software weird in how it's showing just one post? It would be nice if we could consolidate this advice to one thread that could be a useful resource over time. I thinkg How should I do the design process...
