    Thoughts on luxury service? Videographer who travels with you and makes a video of your experience

    Or become a "rat" (as Ben often jokes about his video guy) and attach yourself to one rich and eccentric family (as opposed to going from gig to gig) that wants to show off their high living and family drama to the world on YouTube :hilarious: See Ben Mallah's Life For Sale on the Koncrete...

    Complaint CMS IDEA

    How is this different from existing helpdesk/ticketing software and case management solutions out there? OK, so your "Complaints Management System" is actually a human-powered service... and not a software or SaaS platform for businesses to use to manage their customer complaints. I'm having...

    Working on a website alone and need someone that will help me get the ball rolling.

    With a little time on my hands, I saw your post and wanted to jump in to help. But I'm holding back, not because you're asking for free help, but because... You've not taken the time to even introduce yourself to the community as the welcome message you got upon signing up suggested. I'm...

    Fastlane High School Business Academy

    Just a gentle reminder: if you're going to succeed at this, don't ignore the politics. You want to be sensitive to where many of the teachers and school execs are, so you don't swing the pendulum too far beyond their ability to comprehend... and invite a revolt. I'm reminded of a story in 2005...

    Selling Shovels to Lead-gen Websites

    Every now and then I see newbies here trying to replicate @MJ DeMarco's Limo lead-gen business in various industries: lead-gen for this and lead-gen for that. Lead-gen is, no doubt, a big opportunity. And until every business -- small, medium, large -- masters internet marketing and build their...

    How to change career?

    From what you described, you're changing JOBS, not CAREER. Job =/= career.

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

    But how did they go from reselling imported PBX to have this $15bn annual research budget you talk about? They certainly weren't endowed with $15bn annual budget while reselling PBX in 1987! (NB: I worked with Huawei briefly in Ghana as an RF Planning & Optimization Engineer -- designing...

    Starting a Rental Fleet (Turo, Uber, Lyft, Uber Eats, GrubHub, Postmates Drivers etc.)

    Nothing to say myself, but take a listen to this Side Hustle School podcast episode: Make $4,000/Month Renting Out Cars You Don’t Own | Side Hustle School

    Lex DeVille's - 200 Mostly Offline Rental Business Ideas

    That gave me a chuckle... you certainly know nothing about Nigeria, or even my own Ghana :hilarious: Not saying it cannot be done... but for small items, your only security down here would be to take a refundable deposit -- large enough to cover the cost of the item in case it's never returned...

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

    (Emphasis mine) You wouldn't think so.... because you're looking at this as a STAR topology where everyone is copying from one grandmaster. In that case, yes, there would be no innovation. But it's more like a MESH where one company would copy something, innovates on top of what they've...

    Huawei : How lack of Control hits hard on a bigger scale.

    While I agree with your general premise, let's put this figure in perspective: probably less than 20% of this comes from smartphone sales, where they may be at the mercy of Google. According to your link, "consumer business" was 45.1% (the rest is from "core network" business unit, which offers...

    Anyone want a free copy of Russell Brunson's ''Network Marketing Secrets''?

    You're talking about this then? (no affiliate link). So your first post then is to covertly push an affiliate offer -- thinking people will contact you so you'd push them to your affiliate link for the "free book" which they must pay shipping to receive...

    WEB SCHOOL Scam? Please help!

    Sure... and OP didn't mention where this mysterious lead is coming from... but as a general principle, shouldn't we be answering people's questions based on THEIR context, rather than our own? Or at least qualify our answers? :humph:

    WEB SCHOOL Scam? Please help!

    FALSE. Unless the "anyone" does not include people from countries PayPal doesn't like :) There are several countries where PayPal is not available at all (including my country, Ghana). For these countries, even PayPal-powered payment via credit card is NOT possible, as you cannot select the...

    INTRO New Irish user

    Welcome to the Fastlane community, @nialledwards23. If you haven't read The Millionaire Fastlane yet, I'd recommend you start from there.

    INTRO Introduction

    Welcome aboard, @Akwailer. I'm 39 and from Ghana. I'll really encourage you to make the time to read the two books. I bought and quickly read the Kindle version of both books, but I've also recently purchased the Audible versions and they're now part of my 24x7 personal "radio". Good luck and...
