    HOT TOPIC What Is So Hard About Entrepreneurship?

    I find I'm fairly risk-averse. I also find that I don't have very strong opinions about anything. I think this leads me to spinning my wheels because no matter what I do, I always consider that there is another option. I jump from thing to thing and give up when I either run into an obstacle...

    HOT TOPIC What Is So Hard About Entrepreneurship?

    I struggle with the "idea," what business am I going to start? What is going to get me excited? My current idea is real estate investing. I paid to become a real estate agent but now I'm second guessing myself and can probably kiss that money bye. I signed up for BiggerPockets Pro. I've...

    GOLD! The Only 3 Beliefs Holding You Back Right Now

    My pattern seems to be, "I can do this! I'm super excited. If others can do it, so can I. Here are all the steps. I'm committed!" And then I jump in. "Hmm...what am I missing? This is harder than I thought. I'm getting frustrated. It's not working as fast as I want it to. I'm going to...

    GOLD! The Only 3 Beliefs Holding You Back Right Now

    I sit on the Helpless fence. Everything I've tried never worked for me so I always have it in the back of my mind that, "This works for everyone else except for me." I'm in a job that I can't stand and want out but I don't have a plan to get there. I spent 3-4 days journaling and came upon...

    Thanks @sparechange . The good in the job comes from those who are dedicated to what the job is. They know no other way. They got into it for the pension or for the security. For me, it was always a childhood dream. Then, I found the Fastlane, and my life changed. My values changed. What...

    I am a patrol officer. I have a specific zone of my township and handle nearly all of the calls in my zone. I handle everything from service calls like medicals, where I help the ambulance, I handle police calls like reckless drivers, suspicious persons, crimes in progress, any other reports...

    Thanks for this. I'm in that position now where everyone complains about the job given the work environment has changed, it has gotten a lot more dangerous, people are getting tired of dealing with all of the destruction, but they don't do anything to change their position. They make the...

    A small taste of freedom....kind of

    This was the idea that I had for a children's book in a way of how I helped people. I started on it but then COVID hit and it put the brakes on our call volume (which was actually really nice). The idea then fizzled out because of the few months of doing nothing but sitting in a car. Once...

    NOTABLE! What book are you reading? Right now. Post up!

    No problem. I just wanted to leave the resource here for others since I randomly came across it. I use the .mobi files a lot to send to my Kindle apps when I want to read a book that I don’t necessarily care to purchase knowing I probably won’t stick with it.

    NOTABLE! What book are you reading? Right now. Post up!

    I was looking up who this guy was and ended up on his/a website that offers this book for free. https://www.navalmanack.com/ If you know how to use a .mobi file with Amazon, you can send it to your Kindle app or device. Otherwise, the book can be read online or downloaded as a PDF as well.

    RANT Feeling like 2 steps behind

    After reading about delivering liquor, I immediately had the thought about suggesting a mixed drink/liquor subscription box. You could put together various cocktail ingredients that people can then mix at home served in those smaller single-serve bottles. I never thought about that until...

    I'm pretty close. I'm not someone who doesn't care and part of that is what drags me down. Sometimes, I take it personally that I can't help someone who was just a victim of a crime. The constant stress and toleration is causing me to be on edge all the time. I can rarely go out without...

    I don't know actual figures but the one guy I have seen on Youtube doing car detailing always has a list of affiliate links in the description listing all the tools and cleaners he uses. It's a long list. All you really need is someone clicking on a few to buy them. Multiply that out by...

    For a lot, it's all they know. It's why they got into the field. That pension is a big orange carrot dangling on a stick. They don't tell you that you're going to get mentally messed up and deal with a lot of nasty "stuff" to earn it. Most people aren't affected by it because it's everything...

    I only have a control yoke. Nothing fancy like some guys and don't have an overly powerful computer but it looks great. There are a ton of videos out there of random routes and showing off scenery. My idea would be more of a story-telling adventure of missions and pretending to be an everyday...

    Thanks @sparechange . I'm going to try to be more aware of gear issues. There are so many things out there and I'm sure there is a massive market beyond what I'm even considering right now. There are so many companies that sell a wide range of products and gear like Galls. I have a...

    That's part of the problem. I don't have that idea yet. I sometimes have thoughts of things and ideas but nothing feels like it ever sticks. Like it's just a fad. I failed out on web design, the government contracting business (I kind of would like to do this again if I had a better...

    A small taste of freedom....kind of

    That is something I thought about. I could take our lowest expense like car insurance or cell phone bills and try to generate that amount of money in a month. That would cover that bill and give some relief. The only thing I really know right now to do that is something like eBay where I...

    A small taste of freedom....kind of

    If I really went for it, we could make it at least a year without my full income. Maybe in that year's time I could create something just to sort of prolong those months. For example, with zero income, I'd be paying entirely out of pocket and I'd lose a month. If I worked hard and was able to...
