    Let's discuss the "trade war", will it impact your biz?

    It's certainly a very interesting turn of events. An executive order has been signed that has some major repercussions in this trade war with China. The huge tech giant Huawei has been blacklisted, and thus banned from conducting business with US companies. If you're unaware at the time of this...

    What have you succeeded with? B2B vs B2C

    I've seen basic B2B structures, that with the right focus could be very successful. I currently work in one and it seems that people will buy just about anything if it helps them in some way to earn more. I've personally had more success with B2C, but it seems that both have their ups and downs.

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

    Contrary to popular opinion here, I really think this was the best episode in a very long time for the series. In my honest opinion it was great. The darkness was fitting given it's a fight against death. The animation with the dragons was great. The plot armor was strong indeed as I thought...

    O/T: HEALTH Pains ? Health struggles ? Ask a Surgeon anything

    I've been hitting the gym pretty hard lately. I've observed this regular painless popping sound my shoulder makes that I never experienced before. Any suggestions as to what's really going on? I read up that it may be bursitis but I don't feel any pain, it's just concerning that my shoulder...

    Lots of new faces here since I was active. What's your why?

    My why is simply maximizing my innate potential. Living in a country where the vast majority of adults are unable to live debt free, I realized from a young age that if I don't do something, I'll literally be like everyone else here. I live on the island with one of the worst economies, and the...

    RANT How to EMBARRASS yourself - Don't be this guy

    I've read through this thread and it is evident how immature/childish people can become. I remember calling this the best place on the internet because of all the constructive value that was going around, but it's apparent that some come here with different agendas. I honestly thought this was...

    *First Post* - And I may just get banned ...

    That's actually a very good spin on a somewhat basic approach to a lucrative idea. This can actually be applied to a lot of different niches.

    Thanks for the contribution.

    Help me with logo

    I don't disagree, but I think you're missing the point of what I'm saying. Google's logo is a good example. They have many variations. The standard full word 'Google', then there's the single 'G' in the same font and color scheme that they use for their apps. There are ways to go about it. For...

    Help me with logo

    Man this logo looks fine to me. I honestly think you guys are complicating it. Everyone has their opinion on what purpose a logo should serve, but in the eyes of the average consumer it consciously doesn't really matter that much. First thing I saw when I looked at it was a car and instantly...

    RANT All Meetings Are A Vain Waste Of Time - No Exceptions!

    From my experience meetings are a double edged sword. The company I work for holds a mandatory 30 minute meeting at the start of every workday. Its actually a really efficient time in terms of finding out the status of company operations overall, and gives the manager a time to motivate staff...

    What one thing held you back from starting a successful business more than anything else?

    Getting in my own way. Once you see things for what they are and stop projecting your values onto everything around you, things start happening.

    BOOK The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

    Great book. I recommend reading it. Most of Mark's works are straight to the point, and he has a special style of telling you things you already know but need to be reminded of. Honestly, the principles of not only this book, but some of his other works gave me tons of confidence over the past...

    What habit changed your life?

    A lot of what is being said here resonates with me.Especially taking full responsibility for yourself and your actions, and listening (primarily to understand, not respond). Recently a new habit of mine is touching everything once. The gist is once there is a task at hand cut out...

    Habit changer: TV is a pitiful waste of time

    'It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.' - Bruce Lee I've applied that quote to my life and many bad habits (and people) have been removed. In my experience, going cold turkey on habits like that can lead to relapse. Good on the note though, the...

    Very helpful insight. I appreciate this a lot. The way things are set up, tuition and housing are paid in full; I only have to pay living expenses (food) which will be affordable. Yes I can choose any degree which is really the selling point of this to me. Given the nature of the venture that...

    I have been presented with the opportunity to go to a specific college in the USA via a government sponsored scholarship to complete a bachelors degree in a field of my choosing. Should I take up this offer? Should I pause my fast-lane business setup for this? I've made 0 sales thus far, but i'm...
