    Making spirits? (Bavarian beer)

    Selling in Germany is extremely tough, as most shops and restaurants have existing contracts with the larger breweries. Contracts which deny them the right to buy from anybody else. I know one guy who tried - and failed. Germany is an alcoholic's wonderland, other countries have much stricter...

    Must Have/Best Tools

    NAME: Jira CATEGORY: Project Management DESCRIPTION: Very powerful issue management. Every issue can be discussed separately, issues can be grouped into sprints (aka: what we'll do next week) and it's very easy to see what's assigned to me. PRO: Trello on steroids CONS: Takes a moment to get...

    Make Money with building Websites: The ultimate Way

    That's why you want your involvement to stop at collecting the commission. Let the developer deal with the actual project. Sounds a lot like slowlane.

    Starting a shampoo business [HELP NEEDED]

    The need can already be fulfilled in many ways. For years I've been washing my hair with a bar of soap from the organic store. Works very well. People also use flour (sic!) for washing and many apply apple cider vinegar as a conditioner. Soap bars already come in countless "flavours"...

    C Programming Books

    That's completely wrong. There is no reason at all to even consider learning plain C. Unless you want to do lowest-level hardware programming or have a perverted desire for mental abuse.

    Is 2.5k$ on domain name worth it? Facts inside

    For 2.5k you get another domain name (that is available) plus a custom made website. I'd never pay for a domain. With just a little creativity, there is always an available domain name.

    Try both, see what works for you. It depends heavily on country, target audience, etc. You can also try and find out where they network, meet them in person. You don't want to interact with developers from remote countries. For it to produce good results, you will need to have a solid...

    Another Control Lesson (China clones high profile app game, apple removes original)

    From what we've seen so far, 99.9% of Chinese companies do not innovate on top of what they copied. Their research is limited to finding out whom to copy next. Huawei is where they are today, because they have an annual research budget of $15bn.

    Another Control Lesson (China clones high profile app game, apple removes original)

    I see your point. For me innovation is driven by user demand. I listen to what the users want and implement it. If I was concerned about somebody copying me, I could spend extra time on listening to my users. But it wouldn't create new ways of innovating. Just the same way but under higher...

    You forward the lead to the developer and collect your commission. Technical stuff you do not want to concern yourself with.

    Make Money with building Websites: The ultimate Way

    That sounds like building up a web agency. For me the approach outlined in this thread is not fastlane. It's something that allows you to work flexibly, pays good money and teaches you to think in terms of needs and wants. It gives you the freedom and space to build something fastlane.

    Make Money with building Websites: The ultimate Way

    The latter is what I have experience with. It is easy to convince developers of it, because it requires no investment on their side. You just give them the qualified lead and wait for your commission to be paid. Which obviously requires some trust on your part. How would you imagine a...
