    OFF-TOPIC MacBook Air or Dell XPS 13 Laptop for programming?

    I bought the 2019 Air on a student discount for $899. Apparently the 2019 Air’s keyboard is fixed and I haven’t had any problems yet though I’m kinda worried. If it starts bugging out I’ll probably get it fixed under the replacement program and sell it to buy a new one.

    I want to start an online business, but I do not understand web design etc. Would hiring someone be smart?

    Before you sink 30k custom developing your solution, try to rig it up with Wordpress first. The backend can be a jungle of a mess as long as the front looks food. After all, you’re just testing your idea.

    OFF-TOPIC MacBook Air or Dell XPS 13 Laptop for programming?

    Depends on what platforms you want to develop for. Though I don’t think you can go wrong with either. Remember you can dual boot a Mac with MacOS and windows. @GrayCode @lowtek

    HOT TOPIC Minneapolis (and spreading) Riots, Civil Unrest

    Awesome. I’d like to do a build someday. Decided to get a carry gun first.

    HOT TOPIC Minneapolis (and spreading) Riots, Civil Unrest

    The only mofo these people are burning down is their own community. I haven’t done anything to oppress anyone. Burn down public property if you want, but come try this shit at my house you’ll leave with a third eye socket.

    HOT TOPIC Minneapolis (and spreading) Riots, Civil Unrest

    I 100% agree with @GIlman. Gun sales are getting ready to skyrocket again. Should’ve got my CHL when I had the chance.

    Why are you being dick? Come on man you’re better than that. Edit: I guess it’s funny for forum veterans to blatantly misrepresent and misquote other members. It’s not like it’s his word against yours @100k, there’s literally a paper trail lol

    I’m planning on buying my first investment/rental property within a few years. What should I be aware of?

    RANT Random Chat, Thoughts, Posts, and/or Rants Thread

    Multiple cities across the USA rioting and looting. Officers being attacked and beaten. Cars, gas stations, and local businesses being burnt down. Ironically, the people burning down local employers are ones to complain about no jobs or minimum wage. This goddamn shit makes my blood boil...

    Gold & Silver Megathread

    Thought I’d start a thread about precious metals investing with everything going on. Are precious metals safe right now? Do you prefer gold or silver? Is gold overpriced? Is silver underpriced? Where do you see gold/silver going I’m the next ? Should we buy ETFs over physical? What...

    What about all the other verses that line up with dates? It’s like someone saying they saw three 7’s on their way to buy a lotto ticket and won... What about the other hundred times you saw them and didn’t win?

    Question About Business With A “Mission”?

    You’re right. If anything, it’s not worth the hit to profit or legal work involved. I’ve got a better idea I’m more passionate and know more about that I’ll pursue. At least I’ll keep the site in my portfolio. /thread

    Question About Business With A “Mission”?

    Good points. Funnily enough my product idea was going to be made out of hemp lol It’s actually a keychain “sock” for those small hand sanitizer bottles. There’s tons of cheap China made little keychain holders for hand sanitizer. Figured hand sanitizer keychain cover and global sanitation...

    Question About Business With A “Mission”?

    Hard to have an impact when you can’t pinch a penny. I see where y’all are coming from. If we want to call this a business that gives back rather than a “mission driven” business then that’s fine with me. I guess I used the wrong term. Oh well. Mission driven in the sense that a very large...

    Question About Business With A “Mission”?

    Why not? A mission can also be a USP. I don’t see why it’s bad to use the mission as also a marketing point. At the end of the day, money is going to the cause right?

    Question About Business With A “Mission”?

    These are good points. Thanks! I do care about the impact.....and I care about making money. If I can positively impact the world while also making a decent amount of cash, then that's the dream. But at the end of the day, a profitable business can generate more donations than a typical...

    Question About Business With A “Mission”?

    I can agree with that. Do you think having a mission as a USP/value skew is better than without? One common thing with "charitable businesses", is that it's easier for customers to align their identity with the cause, and ultimately the business's product. Someone may not pay $20 for a...

    Question About Business With A “Mission”?

    Thanks. That's really what I'm trying to get at with the business. I think it was Eric Bandholz who said: "The product is a way to fund my mission." Another mission biz I'd love to start is creating community gardens.

    Question About Business With A “Mission”?

    Both are calculated by Gross Sales - COGS/CPA/etc, before I get paid. Yeah I'm going to need to get more specific. Would you recommend just partnering with a single charity vs three? Or try and send physical items? This is why I went with the charity route, at least in the beginning. Would it...
