    Family with a different mindset

    Just to clarify a couple things: When I first read this, I thought you had decided not to go to college. But did you drop out of high school? Have you made any money from your business?

    Family with a different mindset

    I don't think you can really expect your dad to respect your choices until you move out. Your financial choices affect him directly. If you fail, he pays for it. I say this as someone who lived with her parents until very recently. And who won't even be paying her own rent until next month (I...

    OFF-TOPIC 'Deaths of despair' soaring among Gen Z & millennials: 'It's the economy, stupid'

    @WJK Thanks for sharing your experiences; I can understand why you'd see the younger generation as entitled and sheltered! And to some extent it may be true. I wonder if it's a Gen Z/ Millennial thing or just a "young people" thing.

    OFF-TOPIC 'Deaths of despair' soaring among Gen Z & millennials: 'It's the economy, stupid'

    @WJK I'm 23 and cleaned houses through middle school, high school, and into college. I don't know how many "kids" are in your sample size, but Gen Z is not a monolithic entity. I know plenty of people my age who are very hard workers. Could you give some examples?

    INTRO 23y/o, Chronically Ill, Want to Shoot Higher

    Today I followed all the Pinterest boards I could find related to "Kibbe," "Zyla," "Color Analysis," and "Dressing Your Truth." There are other terms I can search for later, but those four were a good start. Then I created a few boards (collections of links, for those unfamiliar with...

    Hello fastlane women / mums... are you there??

    Not a mom, but am a female. :) You can specify your gender in your profile settings, FYI. I recently got a notification that there's a "Ladies' Room" section on this forum. Does anyone know more about that?

    @Ax3 , I'm re-reading my reply to you, and I hope I didn't come across as a know-it-all. I was trying to tell you the ways that I'm implementing your advice or planning to implement it, but it might've come across as cocky. Thanks again for your detailed write-up; it was hugely helpful and very...

    INTRO 23y/o, Chronically Ill, Want to Shoot Higher

    Update: I'm combining research and marketing by going on Pinterest and following every single board that pertains to my niche. (It's tedious, but I think it will be worth it.) Then I'll create my own boards and repin from the boards I followed. This will double as research for my blog posts...

    INTRO Hello, I'm discerning

    For someone who wants to fill others' needs, you seem pretty focused on your own problems. Maybe if you focused on other people's problems instead, you would find a need you could fill.

    Thanks! :) Ok, this was more than a few observations. You took a deep dive and even made me a spreadsheet! Thank you. Since I'm planning to connect lots of different theories, my articles will include lots of search terms. I haven't "gone public," but I've shown it to friends and even...

    NOTABLE! Fear and Action-Faking in Entrepreneurship-- a 19 year old's guide to askholing.

    I have mixed feelings about this thread. On the one hand, OP makes me angry. He has such a messed up sleep schedule and doesn't even have insomnia. I literally started standing my mattress up vertically during the day so I wouldn't take naps, because guess what? My health issues keep me up...

    Creating domain or business name!

    Resurrecting this... just found it in the archives and it was very helpful! I'm thinking of the alliterative name "Style System Central" for my brand (thread linked below): https://www.thefastlaneforum.com/community/threads/23y-o-chronically-ill-want-to-shoot-higher.88997/ Edit: Hmmm...

    Do you want to learn more, or earn more?

    Tell me what you think when you get further into it! I feel like I understood TMF better b/c I'd read StoryBrand first.

    Do you want to learn more, or earn more?

    Before I read TMF, I read a book called Building a StoryBrand. It helped me get into this mindset. Anyone else here read it? It teaches you how to cast the customer as the hero in all your marketing materials, not yourself or your brand.

    Thanks! Yep, exactly. :smile: The only thing that bugs me is something that @Johnny boy brought up earlier... if I'm just aggregating information, then what can I actually charge for? Sure, I'm not just aggregating; I'm also analyzing/simplifying... but I don't know how to make that into a...

    @cautiouscapy What has your experience been with personal style? What do you WISH existed in this niche? Do you have any needs that are being unmet by the current resources?

    INTRO 23y/o, Chronically Ill, Want to Shoot Higher

    Doing market research and thinking. The most glaring lack I see in this niche is that there's no hub* for all the info about style theories. I think I could create that hub. I could interview stylists and authors and create a one-stop shop for all things color analysis, personal styling, etc...

    INTRO 23y/o, Chronically Ill, Want to Shoot Higher

    Okay, I see what you're saying! Thanks for explaining and thanks for the encouragement. Based on all the advice I've gotten so far, my first step is going to be market research. I already have a casual knowledge of the market since this is a topic I'm interested in, but I need to do a deep dive...
