    Services I Overpaid For

    Handymans are paid pretty well. We had a few electric switches replaced in our condo and they charged me $150 per hour. And the market is pretty big - almost everyone needs something like this to be done at home from time to time. Also, it is hard to find a handyman who you can trust, because...

    LANDFILL Cloud Hosting Idea

    Good idea. To me AWS looks too complicated with hundreds of services they offer. Sometimes, there is no way to create kubernetes or spark or ... cluster if you are not an admin and don't have much experience. It would be nice to have some more lightweight UI. What you need to think is how hard...

    Online Courses For Free What Would You Do ?

    Does it make sense in your case to try a donation model, when people are not forced to pay but can donate if they feel they so?

    What I Learned Operating A Commercial Cleaning Company

    Wow, so many good points! I would not agree about "You don’t need a partner". I noticed, most of my business were successful only when I had a partner. Having a partner is a kind of a test for your idea. Also, it gives a lot of inspiration

    Biggest issue you face with starting/running your own business ?

    Well, I am failing to analyze my ideas/project before I get into this. Then in the middle I realize that the idea is not perfect. It is hard to select the right ideas and then have courage to commit to them for long period of time

    I'm not smart enough to sell my services, I'm just really good at what I do for myself

    Good that you have progress! A lot of things may change as you move on with your plan. I am always very careful with goals like "X amount of $ by date", as they can kill creativity and add additional stress. But on the other hand it is important to have discipline and work on a project everyday...

    Time to plan for the next RE phase

    What if it starts in 10 years but not in 2? I have seen a chart that shows changes in real estate prices in response to a financial crisis. What surprised me is that except for 2008, the prices for the real estate didn't go down much. So maybe it make sense to think about other assets
