    Thanks @Fox I have the salesman skill, just have been stuck finding that business model that can scale.The 2k web client took about 2-3 weeks with minimal follow up, but I think what closed the deal was the tip I took from you where when they ask for a price, see exactly what features they...

    NOTABLE! Is CENTS Destructive to Action?

    This was one of my issues after reading TMF, had a few ideas, but none of them seem to come to fruition because of fear being commoditized in a crowded market: 1.) An idea to sell professional websites. 2.) A community for urban music producers, but thought the market was too commoditized and...

    I’m curious, could this be done with human capital or without investing so much monetary capital at first? I’m mainly city based, but there are some rural cities within 100 miles of me.

    Something interesting, I saw last night on the news, someone came up with a similar product to what I was thinking to come up with for school safety. It’s a bulletproof book you would hold up against your face. It supposed to act as a defense from (ak47’s, glocks, and other small hand...

    I found about 3 potential businesses so far. It seems like in my area people are really trying to sell their landscaping, dry cleaning, and turnkey businesses. Most of these landscaping businesses claim to take home 400k after expenses and they want 1.2 million. Dry cleaners around the same...

    Thanks for roundhouse kicking me in the a$$ again @Boo and @minivanman (laughs). Honestly do you all think there will be a answer for that? It seems like a portion of it is out of your control (employees quit, some steal your customers like you mentioned above, cause problems, etc), and that’s...

    I see. So it’s a managing and maintaining workers in the field. I get it. I bet it can be frustrating dealing with those kind of issues (hiring/firing, handling pay checks, etc)? To be honest, I really would prefer creating a business that is little to none employees because of the managerial...

    Thanks for giving some more insight into the problem. Im starting understand the point better. So what do you think is the issue primarily with workers not being fully committed to their field? Is It because of the type of work/field you think, the pay, etc? I’m wondering because a company...

    Sounds good to me! I suffered a similar issue (analysis paralysis and constantly wondering if it’s a business I should pursue), but any idea with 0 execution = no execution. If I could start a business today I would love pursue the school safety problem. Creating gear that would could...

    I don’t expect it to be easy, but I’m open to the idea of a Uber approach if the market calls for it. IMO feels like it would have to branch off or franchise off to more contractors, yet the service needs to be the same at every home (I.e. just like how a McDonald’s burger is made practically...

    Found some more potential needs/issues in my neighborhood. There’s a site called next door, which basically connects neighbors together and is like Facebook. Well after going through many discussions of my neighborhood, I see 3 constant issues pop up: - “I lost my pet”. Dogs, cats, even a...

    This is my goal ^^^ Even though I haven’t executed into business just yet, I followed what MJ Demarco said for lazy asses on the couch lol...smothered myself into sales. Learned the ups and downs, how to talk to people, closing the deal, copywriting, etc. For almost a year and a half I have...

    Well I would love to have your problem, seems like an opportunity I could solve. Duplicating his services with individuals or similar smaller companies that will work by providing better incentives (i.e. better pay, more work yet flexible hours, and other incentives that would attract better...

    Reminds me of when my family ac went out. We called 7 local companies, 4 were too busy/didn’t answer and 3 came over to give a quote. 2 wanted to charge us around $1200 to change a $20 capacitor that takes less than 5 minutes to install. The last one charged a fair price (much less than $1200)...

    For example, the dry cleaners I live around have terrible service and ridiculous prices. If someone could come in and make the Netflix of dry cleaners with better prices and courteous service, there would definitely be some competition. Another field I’m curious in is the landscaping/mowing...
