    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    Thanks for taking the time! Really appreciate your feedback here. Oh no! Do you understand the principal behind the app? It's basically a board game + questions which are the quiz part, so gamified quizzes. You upload a background, place the spaces where you want the players to move (click the...

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    But there's no reason to have a plan B as it distracts from plan A ;) Is this just if you want to setup a business in Thailand? What if I set it up in the UK and operate in Thailand for 6 months? That's what I'd like to do.. I'm not much of a party person anyway so I don't see this being a big...

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    I get what you're saying, it is less risky to do it on the side while finishing uni. My reasoning was if I moved to Chiang Mai or somewhere similar it would be easier to grow it quickly because I can learn from others doing similar things and cover my expenses fairly easily. And I'm not talking...

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    Yeah exactly and no doubt my parents would be harassing me to get a job so I don't think it would be a great environment

    T Thanks for all the great information! Haven't had time to fully study this yet, but will definitely refer back to it!

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    No but the reason I'm saying about moving to Thailand (temporarily btw, like 6 months) is so I can work *full time* on business with low living expenses and be around people who are doing similar things. The low living expenses is key because it can become sustainable pretty quickly. I'm not...

    Wait I was going to ask, how is that bullshit? If there's one there's more! What would you consider a validated idea?

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    Lol I was wondering if there would be a post like this. Honestly I didn't expect so many people on the fastlane forum to be saying to stay in school!

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    Thanks for showing interest in it! Honestly I don't know much about marketing so I'm trying to learn. Currently reading "The one page marketing plan" which is supposed to be very good. I'm getting the feeling though that it might be more for audience businesses with email lists and stuff, not...

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    lol why so negative? I don't see anything wrong with following successful people on YouTube and taking action on some of their advice.. To be clear, I'm not talking about moving to Thailand permanently. Just for a period of about 6 months will do, so I can focus on getting the business off the...

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    Yes I'm pretty good with JavaScript and Node.js. Learnt React JS a year ago and been using it for the new version of my product. Also a variety of other technologies, but I won't bother listing them all here. Oh, I hope it's not as bad as you make it out to be... There's always going to be a...

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    Actually yes, I've been watching him for about a year and he generally gives pretty solid advice. He is super successful as well. Actually got TMF recommended by him, so that's how I discovered this whole world. I'm not sure they'll want me to move in. My parents don't understand...

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    Thanks for the replies. Why Thailand? Because the living costs are so low, which means it shouldn't take too long focusing on the business full time before I make enough income to be equal or more than my living costs (so it becomes sustainable). Right now I only have time in the mornings and...

    HOT TOPIC 20 years old, planning to quit uni and move to Thailand to work on business

    So I just finished second year of uni. Didn't do great, as I really haven't been interested in the stuff I'm learning and spent way more time working on my business than revising lol. I'm now on a placement, working for 1 year before I'm expected to go back for final year. But I don't think I'm...

    Have I killed my business? (Trademark Infringement)

    Well, I've recently found that they are listed under the Canadian trademarks and it was registered BEFORE my site was created. Weird that their site doesn't seem to have any history, perhaps it was an offline service and they've recently taken it online. I'm assuming this means I'm screwed?

    Have I killed my business? (Trademark Infringement)

    Yesterday I received an email from someone about a trademark infringement. We are in the same industry and our names differ by 1 letter. However, when I registered the domain name they were not around. Their site seems to be quite new while mine is almost 2 years old and has a few blogs and...

    Anyone with experience selling software to organisations?

    Anyone with experience selling software to organisations?

    Thanks for the response, yeah sorry if my question wasn't very clear, I'm just looking for general advice about this. A 12-month subscription licence sounds most likely option I will go with. $250K is a lot! How do you determine how much to charge the company? Or do you let them determine the...
