    Experienced coders: What do you think is the best framework to create a web app like this?

    If you want to develop a prototype quickly, React-Native with Expo is probably your best bet: Expo What's interesting is that you can pop your app out from Expo later on so you can do more advanced things yourself, or you can upgrade to a paid plan on Expo that will produce iOS and Android...

    Who buys courses?

    I was writing a whole spiel on this, but basically, it's turning into a market of lemons. This has been the case for programming as well. A flood of low-quality but low-price goods and services are entering the market and the high-quality goods/services feel like they must compete by becoming...

    Programming Side hustle?

    Hah, this is exactly the problem I want to solve. I started working on an intro to python programming e-learning course and honestly, even with 12 years of professional experience, I also get stuck with knowing what to learn next or finding what project to create next or what job to apply for...

    Question about deducting Facebook/Google ads as an agency

    I can only speak about what I know for Canada; Facebook/Google ads are not deductible (at least not for small business/partnership/sole proprietorship) because they are not Canadian news outlets. I'm not sure how it works in the US, but I would assume that advertising is not quite part of...

    Inventory Software, For Pharmacies

    The software would be the easiest and cheapest part of this idea to build. The hard part is that you need a sales team to go to each pharmacy and convince them to add the inventory to your system. That's many many years and lots of capital invested for who knows what kind of ROI. If you want to...

    Yearly Corporation Maintenance Fees

    I've seen that there are corporation tax filing fees, and other fees. It looked to be around $1200 USD per year to just maintain a corporation (I could be wrong, I only did a quick search). At what level of side-hustle income would it make sense to switch from a very very liable sole...

    GOLD! WordPress Site Speed, Perfected—Ask Me Anything

    On mobile it's blank and I see the progress bar going and then all of a sudden the content starts to fill in. I also thought DNS lookup delay, not sure yet.

    GOLD! WordPress Site Speed, Perfected—Ask Me Anything

    I updated my caching plugins on my wordpress sites after reading this post. The desktop loading is much improved (using better PNG compression helped too). But on mobile, there's a weird delay before the initial loading of the page. I'm not sure if it's a DNS issue or something else I'm going...

    GOLD! WordPress Site Speed, Perfected—Ask Me Anything

    What an awesome thread; I've been running a Wordpress site on HostGator and just started running another one on SiteGround and I can't help but feel there's a speed issue thanks to Jetpack and pixel.wp.com and with whatever default caches are installed. Your post has shown me that my hunch was...

    EXECUTION Building An Online Training Platform From Scratch

    How much was the increase? Sales meaning cold-emailing or facebook ads or some other marketing channel? Curious to know as I'm trying to advertise a few of my own courses :smile2:

    EXECUTION Building An Online Training Platform From Scratch

    Thanks for sharing this! This is true of a lot of programming content. The only people paying are those who know the true value of knowledge and education or a company that has a training budget. Otherwise you have to offer courses for free or low-price and then try to sell a lot of them...

    EXECUTION [Progress] Building a Copywriting platform

    I'm interested in seeing how this turns out. As a developer it would be cool to see what kind of ROI it is. As a freelance writer, it would be cool to see if I could use the platform for extra cash.

    GOLD! From 0 To $240,000 Per Year PROFIT In 18 Months

    I've been using the commute on public transit for working on articles/video courses. 40 minutes each way results in a lot of work getting done. Lunch time feels trickier because it can look odd to duck out with my personal laptop or bag (working in a large open office). ...Now I realize where...

    GOLD! From 0 To $240,000 Per Year PROFIT In 18 Months

    This was an inspiring read! Is it conceivable to work from home at a full-time job and still take consulting jobs to save up for that initial investment/acquisition? It seems like most clients for freelancing dislike weekend or evening work (unless it's a different timezone, weirdly enough)...

    What makes a good CTO?

    The shift is from strategic to tactical, as Scott pointed out. You're going to be thinking more about the business and aligning all tasks toward the business goals. One crucial difference between "ok" management and great managers and CTOs is that they take control of their schedule and schedule...

    AI solution for businesses - can someone critique my value proposition and landing page?

    Oh I see. I've seen both approaches though your suggestion is far more common and more effective.

    AI solution for businesses - can someone critique my value proposition and landing page?

    Sounds like you're getting closer to a really good description of the service. I would advise you to create a persona for an ideal customer and be very specific about the industry. For example, you mentioned Yelp, so you may want to target restaurants: "we analyze your business listing and...

    AI solution for businesses - can someone critique my value proposition and landing page?

    I like the example! Good work, I would try and put an image at the top as a before and after. Before: bad business listing. After: highlighted improvements to the business listing. Since you haven't built the product you can't put 10x or 2x or any real stats, but you can visually help the...

    AI solution for businesses - can someone critique my value proposition and landing page?

    Looks like a good starting point. I'd recommend giving a few example cases of the Correct + Suggest and Volume/Rating Projections Maybe something like "You know you had 1000 sales last month. Based on your business listings, our AI service can analyze your data and tell if you will 2,000 sales...
