    Struggling with choosing my ONE thing - Could use some external perspectives.

    No problem. Good on you for making a spreadsheet. I'd even consider doing a google search for "famous people who like fan art" or "celebrities who like video games" and a bunch of other versions of that. I look forward to your DM.

    Struggling with choosing my ONE thing - Could use some external perspectives.

    Do you like video games? Your art seems to be inspired by that. Here's an idea: serve the people who love video games/video game art and have influence/celebrity. If you can say, design something for Marcus "Notch" Perrson (creator of Minecraft) that you have a reasonable guess he'll like...

    MOVING OUT with $2,000 and no credit, or am I DELUSIONAL

    While others have had good insights to share here, you WILL HAVE TO DO what @JAJT says at some point, and the best time to do that is right now. To repeat him, what is moving out going to entail numbers wise? Write it down. What numbers do you have coming in? Write it down. Compare. Move on...

    Best Strategy For Naming a Business?

    It's here: A rose by another name might smell like crap However, here are "the exact steps";) I'd take to start, @TheodoreA : 1) Select a "start up" name as @Andy Black calls it. This is any short name that you can use to get started and move ahead in your business. You can change it later...

    GOLD! Please Bid On Your Brand Name!

    Now that you mention, I should've known. I mean, their strategy is to conquer and then monetize. So they definitely won't make any concessions to anybody. Right you are. It's a legal but dirty play.

    A rose by another name might smell like crap

    gotcha. Get the ball rolling, don't let lack of name get in the way of providing value.

    Wow wow! Did he by chance have a ticket to the sucky summit he no longer wants too? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Game or Movie?

    I️ like movies, but a 75 year one? Heck no. I’ll take my chances with the wins and losses, the ups and the downs of the game.

    GOLD! Please Bid On Your Brand Name!

    When it comes to bidding for your own name, is Google pulling a fast one on you by allowing others to bid for your name (especially if your name is intellectual property)? From Google, "AdWords ads using restricted trademarks in their ad text may not be allowed to run. This policy applies...

    A rose by another name might smell like crap

    Solid post. All that stuff's pretty new to me, but it makes a TON of sense. I mean, the control of the SERP real estate alone is pretty worth it. I tell, you the more I learn about "new media", the more I think it's similar to "old media". Page 1 of a google search is like having a billboard in...

    A rose by another name might smell like crap

    I'd be surprised if you didn't at least know that a telegram was a form of messaging. And then there's "program" (meaning public writing/message), "Christmas gram", "candy gram". It's possible you got it viscerally or subconsciously.

    A rose by another name might smell like crap

    I thought it was at least lesser known than the unfortunate penisland .net , purveyor of pens... I hope. Stories have to be told to be worth anything. So, not usually much, in my opinion, unless you have a really powerful story and it permeates all your marketing. Toms Shoes have no story...

    A rose by another name might smell like crap

    Right?? For fun here are a few more real companies with unfortunate names: -Wong Doody (it's the owners' real last names). Fortunately, they removed the CEO's name, because it's Weiner. They are an ad agency out of Seattle. -Hooker Furniture (again, owner's last name). They sell furniture not...

    A rose by another name might smell like crap

    I've mentioned the value of a brand name elsewhere. The idea is that people will search for "photo sharing app" today, and you can hope your app shows up among a list of 100 other similar apps, OR if you have brand recognition (like Instagram), people skip searching for "photo sharing app" and...

    A rose by another name might smell like crap

    Shakespeare had it wrong, the name matters. He was talking about romantic partners and not brand names, but even a girl in love is gonna hesitate to marry a guy whose last name is "Balls". So while a company name might not be as important as the customer service, the solid product/service you...

    Talk about a missed opportunity for them. They might've left the sidewalk if they listened and asked questions instead.

    HOT TOPIC How to Get Rid of Negative Friends

    What was it? Jealousy? Or a sense of entitlement? Like, "Hey, the team needs money or new jerseys, MJ can surely cover it. It's no big deal to his wallet."
