    INTRO how much can you change in 3 months

    A lot of progress can be made in 3 solid months of work. Don’t come into it with expectations about what you will or will not achieve in 3 months. Just execute, fail, repeat. The worst thing you can do with these 3 months is sit around and action-fake.

    Being comfortable being alone

    5 manufacturers giving you a "No" is way too small a number for you to give up on this idea. Keep pushing away. Only once you have 200+ manufacturers tell you they can't make your supplement, then you can consider your other options. This is unrelated to manufacturing, but I recently had to...

    Car Accident App(Need Feedback!)

    Agreed. I don't think many people would preemptively download this app. The chance of getting in a car accident is statistically low, and most people assume: "It would never happen to me" or "I'm a good driver."
