    Looking for partner

    You don't need a mentor, you need build something that has merit and value. At that point, you can find someone to help you market it or market it yourself. At least build a MVP. Do you have an idea of what you want to build? A plan? Anything of actual value?

    GOLD! Intro, AMA, and a Recent Sale for $6M of InvestorJunkie.com

    Yeah, they use to be HUGE in the space and have since changed models. Most of the people I worked closely with and became friends with left or were replaced. Those conferences were a blast though. Too bad you didn't see them in their hay day.

    GOLD! Intro, AMA, and a Recent Sale for $6M of InvestorJunkie.com

    Larry, I see you work with Bankrate. I've been a partner of theirs since 2011. Did you ever attend any of their affiliate conferences at The Breakers? If so, we have likely met or crossed paths several times. At the one a few years ago (where they had just acquired Caring.com for 50MM+), they...

    GOLD! Intro, AMA, and a Recent Sale for $6M of InvestorJunkie.com

    What I regret most after selling my first company was not doing something BIG with a specific end in mind. I launched some sites and did more of what I was doing at the time in another vertical (due to a non-compete) and made good money doing it. However, it wasn't a long term play. That's...

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

    It seems to me the biggest benefit of a tiny home, besides the significant reduction in costs, was the portability. Isn't that the actual trend? Vagabond around in your tiny home and enjoy all the adventures of life on the road, especially with younger folks?

    Real Estate The business that will change the real estate world (for the better) and obsolete realtors.

    Yes, they do have a la carte services, I think this is just their base line offer. Wow, that's crazy, but not surprising I suppose. Upsells works in every business. lol

    Real Estate The business that will change the real estate world (for the better) and obsolete realtors.

    Duffy Realty for sure. My neighbor just sold his house with them in about 3 weeks. They don't do anything other than take pics, list it on MLS and put a sign in the yard. All for $500. If your house doesn't sell, they then turn around and sell you as a lead to a real agent company.

    Stop what you're doing. Get a line of credit.

    Ya, that's probably a good idea. Another alternative is personal lending if you know any one that has a private equity company maybe they will give you a shot, although they typically look for juicy deals.

    Stop what you're doing. Get a line of credit.

    Are you actually going into the bank to talk to a banker or are you applying online? If you are applying online to a faceless drone of course you have no negotiating opportunities as you are not even talking to someone. If you have any collateral (a home for example) and you go in and talk to...

    Stop what you're doing. Get a line of credit.

    Same with Shopify. If you are doing decent volume, they will lend you the money and take a percentage off your sale until it is paid back. The rates were terrible though. Paypal has sent me lending offers as well.

    Can you add too much value?

    Look at your posts "301" and your likes "148" (For every post you make you get 1/2 like.) Now ask yourself are you adding value? The reality here is that it's going to be hard for you to add "value" on this forum with your posts because you are limited by your experience in business and...

    EXECUTION The Road Beyond $5M....

    Ya, why not sell it BEFORE the recession hits if that's a legit concern. It would certainly provide some cushion and capital for your new venture.

    Stop what you're doing. Get a line of credit.

    Hook an AMEX to Paypal and then use that credit card to pay with Paypal if your factory accepts Paypal. Bam! - Double or triple points on your inventory costs! I typically pay with Paypal, send a wire or use Alibaba if the client insists, in which case I pay with a Visa.

    Not taking action because I'm afraid of creating myself a job.

    This is a true story of what's happening to me right now. I already have successful stores and I have been on the fence about starting another in a complimentary niche for a while now. It's not in a niche I love or that I even use, so I kept putting off even though I know it would be profitable...
