    EXECUTION A sculptor's journey towards the Fastlane

    Week 3: breaking my records and a room full of garbage OK, third week of the year has finished! I keep improving in the total productive hours. I've worked 13h this week on paid projects, spent 38 in class/doing college work, and dedicated 13,5 to non-paid work (mainly tidying up my workspace...

    EXECUTION A sculptor's journey towards the Fastlane

    OK, second week of the year finished, and it has gone fairly well in terms of productivity (or at least in not wasting time). 52 work hours, of which 22 have been actual work on paid projects, 20 more at the university, 4 dedicated to investing, 3 to general tidying of my digital and physical...

    Bootstrapping, initial capital-building failed! What now?

    yeah sure! http://www.artstation.com/abrodos DM me if you want for specific insights on what people like. As for this company, it's been on the market for like 10 years or so. The cute designs, the positive messages and the catchy puns I suppose was what made them so famous. Many puns and...

    Bootstrapping, initial capital-building failed! What now?

    Just came to my mind a Spanish brand that might be something similar to your page. They sell cups, notebooks, all kinds of merchandise and they're pretty famous in Spain. This is the page: Mr. Wonderful Shop Europe - Mr. Wonderful There are even a couple brands that mock them, which are called...

    EXECUTION A sculptor's journey towards the Fastlane

    Week 1: FOCUS Hi everyone! I'll be documenting my progress here. As you might know, I'm a 30-year-old sculptor from Barcelona. I've been freelancing for five years, and although everything is going better each year, it is hardly enough to cover my minimal living expenses. I've never done any...

    Providing the RIGHT value

    Thinking about your community and their reticence to advertising, a couple examples (possible ways of monetizing) have come to my mind: There's an instagram page in my country called Unidestroyer, that makes fun of rivalry between different universities, memes about exams, fun stuff generally...

    INTRO Lane Change

    That particular startup was about a crowdlending platform for farmers in developing countries. The premise was: 1.There's too much money lying around in developed countries (that's why bank deposits offer such low interests) 2.These farmers usually don't have access to credits, so local loan...

    Providing the RIGHT value

    In social media marketing (I'm just studying a course about digital marketing and e-commerce right now) there's 2 classifications of communities: vertical channels (they center around a theme and you can easily position as an authority figure) and social channels (no common theme, no common...

    INTRO Lane Change

    Welcome Nolita! At a recent startup pitch I was on, the CEO said that the global market will go towards all the environment/fair trade businesses, not because of moral reasons, but because they'll end up being the most needed and hence the most profitable.

    OFF-TOPIC Gaming Entrepreneurs?!?!

    Hahaha I also play AoE regularly, single player games give me pleasure in the repetition of actions and predictable outcome (the opposite of what I should be focusing on business). Also I'm a big fan of RPGs, zelda and Final Fantasy series, golden sun and older nes ones. I play Warhammer 40000...

    There will be an Italian version of the book Unscripted?

    Good to see that it's translated to another language (it's maybe the book I've most wanted to share with my parents and friends, native Spanish speakers who aren't fluent in English). If there was the need, I could translate it to Spanish without much problem. I'm not a linguist but I'm...

    RANT Just been abused by a toxic client.

    Thank you for taking some time to read it! That's what I need now, someone that listens, because the damage is already done and the situation has no satisfactory solution for all parts. I'd add as well another tip/advice: Charge a lot more (from 30% at least to even 100% more) for comissions...

    RANT Just been abused by a toxic client.

    OK I'm F*cking stupid or something. THere's this guy I've known for several years. He's a theatre actor and director, extremely narcissistic, the kind of guy that asks for a small favour and once you agree, keeps increasing it more and more. Recently he's started to work making theatre shows...

    YouTube SEO question: What to do with 40 EXCELLENT-rating keywords?

    Edit:Thanks to the moderators for helping me move this thread to the right section! OK, so as some might know, I'm starting a Youtube Channel about fantasy sculpture. I'll be sculpting dragons and other mythological beasts, and I aim to monetize it inthree ways: a Patreon, selling these...

    How to escape consumerism and have fun without spending money?

    No books to reccommend, but I'm a very frugal man myself so I can give some suggestions: - If you want to watch films or play videogames, you can find everything for free on the internet. There are PC emulators for most of the consoles so you can play EVERY game on your computer. If your PC is...

    OFF-TOPIC The Cult of Dan Lok - Brainwashed Student Lost $26,000 Testimonial

    This kind of gurus, and every kind of sect leader, are not just preying on desperation, but on ignorance. Ignorance of how manipulation techniques work, and ignorance of basic economic and scientific principles. The less quality education an individual has, the higher the probability of him...

    INTRO Introducing a loser

    Keep in mind that (at least in my country) people have lived in communal family houses since the Roman times. The idea of everyone having their own house is less than 100 years old, and, at least in Spain, imported directly from the 1960s "American Dream" and appearing in an expansive part of...

    INTRO Introducing a loser

    Hello here from a fellow 30 year old who also lives with his parents, also kinda broke (making less than 400$ a month), and also a creative that doesn't quite find how to live from art. MJ says it in Unscripted: You don't need to be doing what you were genetically predisposed: Just adding value...

    Going Fastlane

    I don't know about coding myself, but I meant jumping straight into doing it. Taking action, leaving behind the "plans in a piece of paper" stage. I'm doing that with my youtube channel: the videos are not perfect but I'm learning a lot while creating them. and I'm making them better on the way.

    Going Fastlane

    from my experience I'd say, don't separate studying java from programming a game. Learn java as you program, find problems in the process, solve them, keep going. But don't use studying to evade yourself from actually creating and sharing your creation (even if it's not finished). Welcome to the...
