  1. The Patriot Way

    HOT TOPIC I'm done

    You definitely need to put TMF at number 1! I would actually recommend spending the next couple weeks reading it before the new year to put you in the right mindset, before you get back to making a million dollar app. You could also look into getting book summaries if English isn't your first...

    Skill that can make $2000 a month?

    I'm wondering this, too. I can write very well naturally, although I can't find a way to sell it other than through e-books, although it seems erotic trash is the main genre that sells. Would be great to hear from @TommyG for more details on finding a writing job.

    Question about network effects with new social media/job board platform

    Actually I started this platform to scratch my own itch - I found that my community (specifically, independent filmmakers and other creatives) could be much better served than we currently are by the legacy companies. So my target market's needs are my needs as well. Many of the complaints I see...

    Question about network effects with new social media/job board platform

    Thanks a lot for the encouragement, I learned a lot along the way but probably the most important one is to do more validation first and stop being such a perfectionist. I will definitely check out the Cagan book, hopefully there's a copy at the library. I've had Sprints on my shelf for about 3...

    Question about network effects with new social media/job board platform

    Hi all, I haven't been here in a while due to [insert excuses here]. Unfortunately I've wasted a lot of time on developing what should have been an MVP, but I'm a perfectionist and spent a ton of time and money developing a potential SaaS platform. To be honest, I don't have any hard evidence...

    BOOK DOWNLOAD FREE: The 7 Steps to App Success

    Thank you for this! Will read this soon. Out of curiosity, will you be selling this eventually or is it always going to be free? Pages vi and 18 for the DeMarco refs. :playful:

    O/T: HEALTH Transcendental Meditation Course, Good or Gurudom?

    I haven't yet read it, but I did read Art of War last summer and if I remember correctly Tao Te Ching was referenced several times. Please don't take your time for that! I will look into the books you suggested and go from there. I am also planning on enrolling in a Tai Chi course soon, and I...

    O/T: HEALTH Transcendental Meditation Course, Good or Gurudom?

    Agreed, apologies for the distraction. Didn't mean to derail the main thread.

    O/T: HEALTH Transcendental Meditation Course, Good or Gurudom?

    Tao Te Ching is on my shelf, and I need to read that soon. Thanks for your take on this. I expected as much that TM isn't really anything special, but I'm just exploring ways to be less reactive and reduce stress and increase focus. I'm easily distracted and really, really need to learn to focus...

    GOLD! Lex DeVille's: Guru Cults Exposed: The Tactics "Experts" Use To Pull You In & Suck You Dry

    Watched it right after I saw this post - I've been meaning to for a while. It was disappointing. Just one long infomercial for Tony Robbins, but kinda cool to get in there and see what goes on in those $5k seminars which I'll never attend. Jury's still out for me... He seems to help a lot of...

    NOTABLE! 1,000,000 Followers On Social Media: How I Am Doing It & How You Can Too

    Yeah I've had 10X Rule sitting on my shelf for a while now, but never seen him talk until now. That video kind of makes me wonder if I can read it without thinking about those clips, now. I mean what was that?

    O/T: HEALTH Transcendental Meditation Course, Good or Gurudom?

    Lol indeed, thanks for your response. Just a bit more background, for what it's worth. TM has numerous celebrities who are actively promoting it and espousing its benefits (Dalio, Oprah, Jerry Seinfeld, Hugh Jackman, Michael J. Fox, Ellen DeGeneres, etc. etc.), which is obvious social proof but...

    O/T: HEALTH Transcendental Meditation Course, Good or Gurudom?

    @SinisterLex Thank you for all your insights thus far, it's an eye-opener watching you deconstruct guru tactics. In kind of the same vein, I was wondering if you may have any thoughts on or experiences with Transcendental Meditation? There's a lot of conflicting research, info, and criticism out...

    OFF-TOPIC #DeleteFacebook

    Facebook is straight up evil. I've been using the "News Feed Eradicator" extension for over a year, which replaces your entire news feed with a motivational quote. I keep it for groups and to discover opportunities and hone my ideas from relevant communities. No sympathy for any "difficulties"...

    Nutrition Coaching. Not a Fast Lane Idea (Yet) but It's a Start.

    Good luck, man! Let us know how it goes. As others have said it's always better to do something than nothing, even if it's not necessarily the "best" or "perfect" thing. Poke that finicky cat and see if it meows, or maybe you'll even get a roar. I'd really play up your RDN background, though. So...

    Nutrition Coaching. Not a Fast Lane Idea (Yet) but It's a Start.

    It's interesting, for the most part I've thought that the market for health/fitness coaching, books, apps, calculators, etc. etc. is just so saturated and crowded that there can't possibly be room for another one. And I see new ones sprouting up every day. They stay up, too, so they have to be...

    GOLD! Lex DeVille's: Guru Cults Exposed: The Tactics "Experts" Use To Pull You In & Suck You Dry

    This is really terrifying - some stone-cold Machiavellian level stuff, here. I have to admit I've been pulled in by these tactics a few times, but fortunately bailed before I got too deep. This guy "Billy Gene" actually got me into one of his pre-recorded webinars and my gut told me to X out...

    INTRO Hi, my name is Matt and I'm a Slowlaner.

    Thanks for the kind words cmor and a pleasure to meet you. I think that is sage advice, and reading that thread from MJ puts that bit about "reading another book" into perspective. I'm a book addict and now I see that much of the time I've spent reading some of them could have been much better...

    INTRO Hi, my name is Matt and I'm a Slowlaner.

    Thanks very much for this! I will definitely use this technique. I am never at a shortage for ideas, just a shortage for good ones. :rofl: Most of the time when I come up with something, someone has already done it and likely better than I would have, or the market is just saturated with similar...

    GOLD! I've Read UNSCRIPTED!

    I finished Unscripted last fall, and am on my second go-around at the moment. I'd try to describe my experience but I think I would run out of superlatives pretty quickly. Excellent, life-changing, paradigm-shifting, resonating, startling, etc. etc. I think I will give this "entrepreneurship"...
