    NOTABLE! Eric from Erics Cheesecakes

    @Ericito like many other forum members I've been silently reading and following your progress.. many have given you great advice, and some have even forked out cold hard cash to make you realize that 1) it can be done 2) it's really all in your head Problem-solving is a very important aspect...

    My (sort of) yearly review

    Thanks Megan! Next year I plan to do the following: 1) take on some side gigs to earn some extra money. Today I was approached by an affluent friend who asked me to provide private tuition for her 17 year old son, who is studying in private school. I had a degree in chemistry so she asked me to...

    My (sort of) yearly review

    Time flies, really fast. Just got my one year forum anniversary notification and decided to do my yearly review. Well actually at the moment I’ve got nothing to report but failures. And it kind of sucks because after all that sh*t I went through, I’m now back at square one. In fact I think I’m...

    Short One Liner That Had A Strong Impact On You

    "Tough Times Never Last but Tough People Do!" It's actually the title of a book written by Robert H. Schuller. I'm going through hell right now. Rereading this book, even just the title itself, really helps me at the moment.

    Any sex-toy developers? A long-shot I'm sure...

    @Calvert79 since your product doesn't require any electrical parts you should totally make a prototype yourself. It will be very useful for you whether you want to license it out to companies or produce it yourself in the future. At this stage you probably don't need to engage a 3D printer yet...

    NOTABLE! How many Business Failures did you have before success?

    Lost count of how many failures I've had.. still working/failing and trying my best to make the most out of the experiences.. If only mentors are so easy to find.. so far I've only met "Gurus" and "Pseudo mentors with ulterior motives". Having said that, I'm glad I found this forum. Learning...

    OFF-TOPIC Let’s talk about cyber bullying

    Recently a serial poster’s thread in this forum was heavily “tagged” with various “creative” insults. It’s not the first time it has happened, and it probably won’t be the last. I’ll admit it. I laughed my a** off when I first saw it. Hey I’m only human. To a certain extend he deserved it. But...

    Hey! .... You tryin' to change your life today?

    If you have difficulties grasping the concept OP is trying to deliver, read this story below (source: random website from google) and see if you get it. I'm pretty sure many people have come across this story already but no harm to read it again. The 90/10 Rule 10% of life is things that...

    Potential product feedback

    Actually there are companies doing it. Inital, for example calls it "Clean Air Sanitiser" and they offer this service to companies (I believe schools as well, if they are willing to pay). They charge customers a monthly rental, which includes maintaining the units and changing the refills...

    MEETUPS 2019 Fastlane Summit - Announcement

    Ok time for a confession. I log in quite regularly to view the forum but I hardly post anything. It’s hard to admit it but the reasons I don’t post regularly are because of: - Fear of judgment You’d think that it wouldn’t be an issue as you’re anonymous in a forum, but it still haunts me. I...

    NOTABLE! A Room Full of Opportunity (Follow up on the darn leads!)

    Oh I'm just touching the tip of the iceberg here.. LOL.. these people are well trained in the art and science of "dodging questions" and "playing mind games". I'm not being negative here, just sharing what I've experienced so far. After a few sessions with these people I would normally just dump...

    NOTABLE! A Room Full of Opportunity (Follow up on the darn leads!)

    Me too! I HATE dealing with people who are trying to be "polite and diplomatic" by not saying NO. Instead every time you do your follow up they will say/do one or more of the followings: - "I'm still thinking about it" - "I'll need to discuss it with my...

    Suggestion: Like / Dislike / Sad / Happy / Funny / Etc reaction buttons for posts

    Given the choice, I would rather only have "like" and "dislike" buttons, nothing more, nothing less. I feel that giving people a "like" is a good enough indication that their posts are valuable, and the "dislike" button... well you know what it's for...

    Do You Discount to Friends and Family?

    I would say --------- It depends. It depends on what kind of people your friends and family members are. If they are the loving, encouraging and positive kind of people then by all means go ahead. If they are those that put you down, take advantage of you and are skeptical of your ability to...

    O/T: HEALTH What supplements do you take?

    Had my blood test recently and the doc advised me to take fish oil to balance out the HDL and LDL (good and bad cholesterol). The effect was almost immediate as I feel more energetic and alert. Aside from fish oil, I've also been taking spirulina and chlorella. These two have been dubbed the...

    False advertisements - are you immune to them already?

    That’s exactly my point. When I see these kinds of ads I would roll my eyes and say “Yeah right”. I’m so immune to them nowadays they’re not even there anymore. LOL. So when it comes to my turn to put on an ad I wanted to avoid making claims that I as a consumer wouldn’t want to see. To be...

    False advertisements - are you immune to them already?

    Lately I’m trying to experiment with FB ads to gauge the market for a potential service. I wrote the ad, selected the demographics, and had it published. After some time I checked the data. The response I got was rather underwhelming. Therefore I made some changes to the ad copy and tried...

    FEATURED! What do I say to people if the past 3 years I have failed and done nothing else in my life?

    I had lunch with a group of new friends today, and during the meal I made small talks with some of them. We talked about what we do and somehow the topic went to past failures. One of the guys told me he lost more than 15k doing food business and he had it shut down within a few months. The...

    Do you have a tattoo?

    Imagine a T-shirt with great design. Once it's been washed and stretched over and over again the image turns blurry, out of shape and out of colour. That's what happens to a tattoo over time. I've seen one before on the forearm of an elderly gentlemen, "art" would be the last word I'd use to...

    FEATURED! Dressing For Success... Stop looking like a fool.

    Maybe you should stop posting further for the time being, and take the time to read the Gold and Notable threads. The way you comment makes you look foolish. When I first joined the forum, I didn't even make my first post until I have a general idea of how this forum works, the mentality behind...
