    Selling at soccer match. Which product do you recommend?

    Dang, never thought I need a license. Gotta get the license fast before the event. Beers could be a good idea, although they won't allow selling alcohol. I like the water bottle idea. Cheap to obtain a whole bunk, and easy to keep them cold.

    O/T: HEALTH Be healthy with very cheap food. Is that possible?

    Cold calling a restaurant. It just one piece of action. I talked with a programmer with his own business, and he gave me a few tips in finding clients and filing taxes. And I know I'm still very ignorance. Flying blind my whole life. So I'm going to lots business meetings, talking with people...

    The Fiverr business My old thread was about a Fiverr business, and the business died. Not completely, but it's no longer sustainable. I still got a client outside Fiverr, and to me that is very valuable. Because that is a piece of control. The strategy I'm pretty good at stay alive. But...

    EXECUTION From 9-to-5 to entrepreneur (journal)

    Outsourcing is an important skill. Better to learn it now. For example, I have to cut a pdf file in several pieces. I couldn't do it in 3 hours. Rather than wasting more time, I just hire someone on Upwork to do it.

    EXECUTION From 9-to-5 to entrepreneur (journal)

    How can I become a businessman? I’m going to figure this shit out. For starter I‘m building a new habit: Talk with everyone Most of it probably will go nowhere, but a very few of them will result in a business opportunity. And there we go: At night, I took the Uber, and an old woman was the...

    A failure, and the lesson. 1. What if I have too many orders? Basically in the last few months, after a few consecutive 5 stars, I started getting a lot of high paying clients. I have someone asking me to make their stuff every single day. I didn’t have time. What I should have done, was to...

    NOTABLE! What is the BEST "value" you ever paid for?

    For me, it’s the JIRA subscription. It has a bunch of features, but essentially it does 2 things for me: - Make me work hard Its ticket system has a number, so every time I do something, the number increases. So I feel rewarded for taking action - Make me work smart Its journaling system has a...

    How to serve the high value customer? This was the first time I got a 4.7 stars review. Not ideal. I considered asking the buyer to modify the review, but I didn't think it was a good move. Because if he knew he can modify the review, later on he could threaten me with bad review to get the...

    There's a neat tactics to use on Fiverr. So for 2 orders in late night, I talked with the buyer a bit, then ended with "I'm going to sleep, will working on your order tomorrow." Pretty much the buyer liked it, both orders ended up with 5 stars. Why does that work? Because it makes me more human...
