    Learning to Fly

    Yes. I've just submitted my application for a private pilot's license in the UK yesterday. I literally started training from scratch in the middle of June this year, and finished my training and all the skills tests at the beginning of September. It took roughly 2.5 months, but I could have done...

    Quitting My Job - What Now?

    Exactly. An employer has already expressed a need for your services, so you're not money-chasing or starting a me-too business in a saturated marketplace. A job could be better for you and you can always leave when it starts holding you back from your entrepreneurial progress.

    Quitting My Job - What Now?

    A Website About Digital Branding

    Hi @Chris25, these are my opinions for the options you've listed: Option 1: No. This violates the commandment of Control. Option 2: For who? This is very vague. Maybe try and target a niche. Option 3: I've seen quite a few people do this on the subject of "digital marketing", they seem to...

    EXECUTION Going from Freelance to E-Commerce

    I'm afraid I haven't made much progress with e-commerce since my last update here. I was waiting for the products to arrive and have been travelling a fair bit too. Existing B2B and retail sales for my Dad's business has fallen a bit, so we really need to make a move on in the online world...

    BOOK REVIEW How to Get Rich, by Felix Dennis

    Myspace was sold in 2005 for $580 million. If you were one of the co-founders or had significant equity, you'd definitely come out of it very well off. But yes, no-one really knows until they know. So regardless of whether you own 100% or 10%, you don't want to be on the sinking ship. A lot of...

    Want to WORRY? Worry about YOU

    Great post. There's so much noise about the upcoming market crash all over the place. It may or may not happen, but only God knows when it will. BTW just curious @Runum, what's that 6MPG monster you raced?

    Make $1,000 in 30 Days as a new entrepreneur

    I agree with your point on creating a USP. That goes a long way in helping you sell services. Making it cheaper than others isn't always necessary if the value is better. Just work at making it a no-brainer value proposition, and make sure the economics make sense to hit your goal. In 30 days...

    EXECUTION Going from Freelance to E-Commerce

    Ecommerce Site Progress: - Still waiting for the new ecommerce site to get ready. Taking much longer than expected :( But I really feel I need to be prepared with more inventory and professional photography, which I'm not. - I feel it's going to take some time and money before I have a...

    EXECUTION Going from Freelance to E-Commerce

    Progress update: Damn it's been nearly a month since I posted here last. This is what I intended to do (and their respective outcomes). - Find some good models and a professional photographer. Arrange a photo shoot ASAP. (The photoshoot hasn't been fixed yet. But I've found a suitable model...

    The future of the automotive industry

    I think we're going to see a lot more super-fast electric cars on the road, and self-driving cars as well. It's too hard to predict what will happen to individual companies though.

    EXECUTION Going from Freelance to E-Commerce

    It’s been a busy few weeks travelling through the desert of desertion. Earlier this month I ran Facebook retargeting ads. Around 400 people visited the site, but I haven't got a single sale yet. After looking into it further, only 3 people added to cart. I don’t know if that really was an...

    EXECUTION Going from Freelance to E-Commerce

    Marketing Update: I've collected around 130 new email sign-ups from running the giveaway. I messaged the winners last week, but none of them have even claimed their prize. Which is quite surprising. For the others who signed up, I sent them all a discount code. 45 opened the email, 5 people...

    EXECUTION Building A Business To Fund My Dream Of Playing Pro Golf

    Hmm there are some good insights in this thread. I've gotten a few ideas to apply to my racing career. This year I'm racing in Formula 4. Looking to step up to Formula 3 soon. I also race KZ shifter karts every now and then. They're absolutely mental. They do 0-60mph in 3 seconds, and I...

    EXECUTION Building A Business To Fund My Dream Of Playing Pro Golf

    I see where you're coming from Diece. While golf is not my type of sport, I'm a racing driver working to become pro. Motorsports draws a lot of similarities, - It's expensive - You need to commit a lot of time to travel, training and racing - Most racing drivers come from rich families. My...
