    Best Slowlane Job Recommendations?

    Making a lot of progress with my products, but pretty much ran dry. All progress has stopped because I ran out of money. I quit my job to make this much progress in short amount of time. The most feasible option is financing, but I hate pretty much overpaying for the business equipment with high...

    GOLD! Think big and then think bigger than that.

    I was just sitting in my car today and thinking back to this post. Control and Ownership are directly tied together. Not independent. The reason Zuckerburg has control is because is the largest stake holder (ownership) in Facebook. But since his ownership is 21-22%, he is highly obligated to...

    GOLD! Think big and then think bigger than that.

    Thanks, that helps. LOL will leave out the fact I burned through my savings. But, if I didn't I would not be progressing.

    GOLD! Think big and then think bigger than that.

    Right, right. Was getting it mixed up with responsibility. I may have to go through the funding route though. All my competitors are the "Designed in California" vibe. They obviously got money pumping in their ventures. And I'm here just a bootstrapped guy. Right now, I have too many product...

    GOLD! Think big and then think bigger than that.

    We are obviously borrowing a lot of money for these big ventures. Gotta give something up for that money, a lot of equity I am assuming. In a sense, it feels like we are going full circle. Feel as if I am an employee working for an investor, lack of control. If I borrow money, I am obligated...

    GOLD! Think big and then think bigger than that.

    This is interesting. I have had a lot of big ideas, but they are pretty much on the sci-fi realm. These guys have an actual hard concept. I am trying to apply this to my own scenario or a regular person. Let's say I have a hard concept, but don't have the 25 year experience as executive or...

    Limited Ways to Reach my Audience

    It’s niche, even the largest interest (competitor brand) isn’t even targetable. My community isn’t specific to age or any other demographics likes that. Also don’t want to exclude based on on those demographics because to my knowledge, this is 100% interest based community. I guess my only hope...

    Limited Ways to Reach my Audience

    I know where/what my target market is 100%, but there is a problem. Huge barrier to reach them. A competitor pretty much owns the community. He is a mod. There is another spot where my target market is..., but very low traffic. Pretty much dead. Then a subreddit where I want to post...

    Been having fun with product creation, but hit a wall.

    Somehow figured out a way, did my marketing plan release and response was very positive on the target market. Not a single sale though... Was really hoping this was gonna skyrocket. I am rushing against the clock. I went on vacation a month back and quit my job for the vacation and never went...

    I just need think more, but thanks for all inputs. I might buy the machine. I quit my job to do this. Crazy how much faster a person can progress without the job.

    Been having fun with product creation, but hit a wall.

    Trying to keep costs low. I have heard of sewing contractors, but my profit margin will sink to the point that it ain’t worth it. I have a pretty good sewing machine. The problem is presser foot length too long. Shorten it anymore and it won’t even hold fabric. Already struggling as it is with...

    Oh, it’s not really the turn that is the problem, but the presser foot being too large, Lengthwise. I have the narrowest foot I can get. But I also need a walking foot, since the fabric slips. This adds some width.

    Been having fun with product creation, but hit a wall.

    So you can pretty much loan one of these machines, but the risk is not worth it. I guess I might have to settle with product quality. Although it is killing me that I know I can do better. Going through another barrier and tried to Mcgaver it again...and it is the same scenario with costly...

    Been having fun with product creation, but hit a wall.

    I have been working on a product with a need and the thing is it aligns with something I’m passionate about as well. I haven’t actually thought about money like my other ventures. Although I am very close to finishing product creation, I hit a wall. I could technically release the product as...

    MARKETPLACE KAK’s “Kill Bigger” Incubation Program

    My response was neutral, don’t know why you are always attacking. Would you like me to refer to you as almighty Kak? What I said was general market insight that seemed to be forgotton, was not specific to your offering. But I’ll stop now...

    MARKETPLACE KAK’s “Kill Bigger” Incubation Program

    Don’t know why anyone is hating on the negative or positive responses. This is an ad. Like all ads, they are open to positive and negative responses by the market. So if you put a product on Instagram ads for instance, and people that see the ad and start hating on it. Do you say “curse this...

    What Are The Reasons People Buy Something?

    The value McDonald’s provides is convenience, tastes good, save time and money. Some open 24/hr increasing convenience even more. Also for some people bulking, it is good because it fits their macros.

    RANT I'm 31 years old with $5 in my account

    I thought web developers make good money. What about all those tech companies? “If it just pays enough to support yourself” that means there is no money to save. He needs more money. With that wage, it is all he can do, just support himself. Easy solution get a better job and live below...
