    REAL ESTATE Creating a Real Estate Syndicate with Little to No Experience

    I wanted to create a thread where Fastlaners could share their experiences (successes/failures) with creating a real estate syndicate. Since this topic is not written about extensively, I also think it would be wise if we could share the different sources of information we collect regarding...

    I am completely lost

    I remember joining the Fastlane in 2007 and haven't been active for about a year. But I would love input from some old friends. I graduated college in May and things looked to be going pretty well. I won my college's business plan competition, had an awesome remote marketing internship for a...

    WEB/DIGITAL Lead generation startups, how did you pick your niche?

    I'm playing around with the idea of starting a Lead Generation startup. I think there are some really experienced marketers who I don't want to compete with (like Experian, AppSumo, etc.), but at the same time I'm intrigued by selling leads. Especially like the AppSumo business model, where...

    I'm thinking about getting my real estate license this summer. I live in New York and the main requirement other than passing the written examination is to take a 75-hour real estate course approved by the state. I found one at my local community college which starts soon, but my main problem is...

    Is stock trading with low funds foolish?

    I started a thread a few days ago about penny stock investing, but after receiving some advice I'd like to ask a different question. I'm a college student and during the week I work part-time at a golf store. Basically I ring people up but on slow days I literally spend hours on the computer...

    What do you think of microcap investing?

    I've done a few searches for penny stocks on this forum but I couldn't come up with much. I was wondering why there isn't too much talk on this subject? I've read a few books on microcap investing and the OTCBB/Pink Sheets and I've learned that although many companies are very shady, some...

    Am I insane for entering the magazine (print) industry?

    I've been toying with this idea for the past three months and I've been doing alot of research on the industry to figure out if it's viable. Basically, my idea is to start a magazine in a particular niche that isn't directly being tapped. I've been reading about magazine start-ups and I think...

    Is there a different mindset between B&M and e-biz entrepreneurs?

    I've been deliberating with this idea for a few months now but I haven't seen anyone mention it on the forums yet. Obviously there are many brick and mortar companies that are complimentary to their web site, but in terms of the start-up phase - do you think there's a difference between...

    Starting a Bank

    I stumbled upon this blog article by the guy who made Wordpress. I did a few searches but I couldn't find any information on this forum about starting a bank. Every state has its own regulations and it would certainly be a difficult start-up, but what do you think about the possibilities of...

    One of my major goals other than to be financially free through entrepreneurship and investing is to be involved in government and public service later in my life.
