    How can you work full time while growing your business ?

    I was a business analyst/UX designer for a software company and felt fried after work too for a number of months. Previously, I had worked on my business projects in the evenings and was reasonably effective working up to midnight and beyond as I have always been a night owl. But as my day job...

    Do Short Term Rentals have the risk of being a commodity?

    I just got back from a trip to Europe and used AirBnb pretty much everywhere. Below are my observations from a guest's perspective. Searching for properties It can be a painful process to search through all the properties, but if you can address all the guests concerns & questions in the...

    OFF-TOPIC Best Entrepreneur-Friendly Places in the World for an Outdoorsy Lifestyle

    They call it the 'tall poppy syndrome' here. But I find living here not sad at all. I live in Sydney and there's a fair bit of wealth around here (expensive properties, high income earners) and I haven't heard of people in convertibles being spat on. I don't have a flash car so I don't first...

    Have Smartphones Destroyed A Generation?

    A long read but interesting article on some of the people who initially created and are now disconnecting from these addictive technologies in the race for our attention. 'Our minds can be hijacked': the tech insiders who fear a smartphone dystopia “Each time you’re swiping down, it’s like a...

    What laptop should a starting online entrepreneur buy?

    Been looking for a USB monitor as well. How do you find the color accuracy and viewing angle / glare? In some reviews they said it can be an issue for photo editing because the colors looked different compared to other monitors and the viewing angle was limited due to anti-glare surface.

    Fastlane or Unscripted? Which first?

    I read TMF first and the way the sidewalk, slowlane and fastlane was explained really struck a nerve. And I'm sure if I read Unscripted first, I'd have a similar reaction to the concepts presented especially since it's written in MJ's no BS style. Which makes it so different from most business...

    GOLD! I've Read UNSCRIPTED!

    Read the Kindle version and listening to the audiobook now. The narrator you chose is excellent and he really brings your words to life. Although The Millionaire Fastlane is one my favorite business books ever, I think Unscripted is a bit tighter in communicating the foundational concepts of...

    The coupon code (password) you enter doesn't log you in. You login after you get to the checkout page.

    WEB/DIGITAL Discount Codes in Disguise

    I noticed an interesting workflow when I was buying some tickets using a coupon code yesterday. I found a coupon to a basketball game on the back of a shopping receipt (http://www.shopadocket.com.au/kings). So I went to the ticketing site and went through the checkout process but couldn't find...

    Accepting Credit Cards from Customers

    I use the Pay Pad app that integrates with Stripe. It's got a built in credit card 'scanner' that's super accurate. It's under 10 bucks and works well without requiring a card reader.

    Steps in getting a product designed and manufactured

    A design brief. You can probably Google to find some that would be useful. When you approach a designer, I assume they will ask for this too. It sounds like you're after something pretty specific, so that should be easier to start with. Maybe you could print out a picture of the existing...

    Steps in getting a product designed and manufactured

    Manufacturers will create your product from the CAD file. So yes, every detail should be laid out unless you want them to make changes that you may not necessarily like. Not sure of your question. Are you doubting you can find someone who can create good CAD models using the online freelance...

    OFF-TOPIC Get a 1 on 1 Call with Jack Edwards and help a Kid Who Is Dying.

    Just had my call with Jack. My mind is still racing and trying to catch up with everything we spoke about. I feel like a nap now. Thanks again Jack. It's a great thing you're doing for the kid and for everyone that you're talking to.

    ForeverJobless Podcast

    I don't think Andrew has an actual guide but rather I remember him or some other podcasters talking about a pre-recording check similar to what @-L- mentioned - stop Bit Torrent, Dropbox, phone & desktop notifications, etc. But I'm sure there are some pre-recording checklists out there.
