    Stay-at-home dad with a $100k budget to start a side business while parenting. What business do you recommend?

    The problem is that choosing a business to start isn't at all like picking the best brand of bicycle or breed of dog. With those things you can give a few criteria, a budget, and enthusiasts can lead you down a few possible paths that make sense for you. In business - it doesn't work like that...

    Guy Jumps at Amazon's Delivery Business Offer - 8 Months in, 112 Employees and 50 Trucks

    I have to imagine it's hard to scale like that without learning a thing or two about entrepreneurship, business, and success along the way. I'd be willing to bet there's a lot of cross-transferable skills he's picked up with this decision. Hopefully he breaks free from Amazon and does...

    INTRO Looking for advice "How to Start Side Hustle, Exercise, Me Time while holding Full time Job"

    I'd personally swap this around to: 5 am: Wake up. Put your alarm across the room to force you out of bed to turn it off. No snoozing. Turn your alarm off, go immediately to the kitchen, grab a large glass of water, drink it all, then grab your coffee and whatever else. 5:30 am: Go...

    Somebody Sell Me on "Fastlane Insiders"

    IMHO you need a total mindset shift. You're quick to cut expenses but slow to invest in yourself for growth. You can only cut your expenses to zero but you can invest in yourself and grow without any cap. Which do you think makes sense to spend the most time on? 3 months will cost you...

    Which are some books to get my feet wet into ... how do I call this

    Also - check out "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values" It's very philosophical, highly engaging, thought provoking and a great overall read. Regularly pops up on the "best of" lists all the time. If you're worried about the title, this is what the author has to...

    Which are some books to get my feet wet into ... how do I call this

    A little piece of advice with Meditations: there are multiple translations. With all translated work, there are folks who adamantly fight over which version they consider better, more pure, etc... I know there are multiple but really the argument with this book boils down to this: do you...

    Be aware of this before buying from Cheap-UPC-Barcode.com

    Fun little fact about GS1 (at least Canada) - they charge you $150 to cancel (almost like charging another year's worth of service for trying to leave) and their customer support is beyond useless. I had to cancel because my most recent business wasn't working out, so I called to cancel and was...

    OFF-TOPIC Buzzfeed: Tony Robbins accused of sexual misconduct

    Buzzfeed produces sensationalism and divisiveness, that's it. They've been the garbage fire of media outlets (I dare not say "news organization") for years and years now. The only reason they get any attention is because: 1. They cater to the kinds of people who WANT their stories to be true...

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    To be fair though, Bran wasn't strictly needed. This could have easily been written to show Samwell discovering this himself through books, which kind of happened anyway. Was it, though? His lineage didn't end up actually mattering in any way that made a meaningful difference. - The north...

    I'm starting a real estate photography side business and could use some tips

    Out of curiosity - did your pamphlets only (or mainly) focus on the photography aspects? Everyone loves a good before and after photo, but that's not what a realtor is buying with your service - they are buying a higher asking price, a quicker rental turnaround, increasing their "reputation" as...

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    It was a bad ending to a bad season, so at least they were consistent... If it's been one thing I've been saying this season it's that I didn't mind the major plot points - only their execution (rushed, etc), but this last episode... wow. I won't comment on everything, but I will mention the...

    RANT Florida Teachers Can What?

    That was a great read and he said it far better than I did.

    RANT Florida Teachers Can What?

    I don't think that's true at all. For starters - the poll isn't really "fair" in the first place. It's more of a "push poll" that is clearly worded to encourage one answer over another. If the poll was created to encourage the opposite answer, it might be worded: "Where would you rather live...

    RANT Florida Teachers Can What?

    Canadians as well, but it's important to note that this is simply an issue that many non-Americans just can't relate to and it would be ignorant to casually impose the values of one country or region on another without some serious research and experience to back it up. In Ontario, where I...

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    A more enjoyable episode but "rushed" is going to be the buzzword for this season, for certain. The consistency, pacing and scale is just all over the goddamn place. Every time they try to tell or show the audience something they somehow manage to screw it up, sometimes basically immediately...

    Place to go in ameriaca ?

    Have you looked into HOW you plan to move to America? I'm Canadian, one of America's closest allies, and even we aren't allowed more than 6 months in America without a valid legal reason for being there. And I can't lift a finger (legally) to do work in America while there for those 6 months...

    Plant-Based Opportunities / Vegan Business Opportunities

    Beyond Burger seems to be sweeping through Canada like wildfire. It's already on the menu at a few places I frequent, which is surprising because "smaller" US companies generally don't sweep through Canada like this. A&W being one of the larger chains that are shouting about it from the...

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    Yeah, honestly you could remove him ENTIRELY from the series and nothing much would change - the very definition of a bad character. As best I can tell he's little more than the magic version of a remote control drone. Except he offers no real use. If he was directing armies in the battle...

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    It was a real mess of an episode, and too dark, agreed. They had an army the likes the planet has never seen, ruled by a queen that has literal fire breathing dragons, and the entire army was dispatched in minutes. I was beyond disappointed that the best warrior races were portrayed as little...

    Anybody reading fiction??

    This is largely what draws me into classical literature - the author's writing styles in those great works just seem so unique and engrossing in ways I don't normally experience. Sometimes the language is just older, sometimes it's a unique style, sometime's it's just something magically that I...
