    OFF-TOPIC Online Poker With Friends - Who Has a Solution?

    I've also had this trouble when trying to play with friends over the last few weeks. First we played an app called "Pokerrrrr 2" , which worked well the first time. Second time we tried to play, the app crashed or wouldn't let us in (think they couldn't handle the amount of traffic they were...

    Pay-Per-Call For Customer Support/Monthly Calls?

    In my remote agency I tried to solve this with a part time person doing account management (2hrs/day), and it didn't work. Customers/projects were higher touch, and things were delaying and not getting done because he wasn't able to get actual 2hrs/day work done. So he was just a very nice and...

    Generally starting partnership with best friends is a BAD idea..unless it is clear what each one brings to the table and what role each one is going to do, and the two of you have great communication. If that's the case, then it is actually a GREAT to have a good friend as business parter. Is...

    Struggling 24 year old, trying to master brainstorming and picking something to run with...

    I hear you on the "pressure" to get started and be successful. I remember feeling the same way when I was 24. This is going to be a journey of growth, learning and most likely also failing on the way before reaching your dream levels of success.. Some of the ideas you've mentioned can be great...

    Hey @GIlman , love the idea of the podcast.

    HOT TOPIC How to Buy a New Tesla For $5000

    I chose to go with another deal that's very different, buying out one of our B&M competitors. Haven't thought how the Tesla prize comes into play here..but will most likely evaluate how well the deal has gone after 12 months and pull the trigger then if the numbers are as planned.

    From Hustle Burnout to Working 10hrs/week and Loving Life

    I just read the "Hard 75" thread by @Fox, and it brought up an important point I think can be helpful for some. After achieving some success and getting to $100k/yr (after numerous years of failures), the initial motivation that fueled 'hard work' dissapeared. I looked at it as a Discpline...

    From Hustle Burnout to Working 10hrs/week and Loving Life

    Good point :) Regarding the A level players..I think it makes sense that their approach will change if there is a big change in the company vision/style. If you joined in order to help grow big and triple your salary.. you might decide to leave if the owner decides to drop the growth plans and...

    HOT TOPIC How to Buy a New Tesla For $5000

    For the business I was looking at (that was just sold earlier today for full asking price), it looked like they were just relying on Amazon Merchandise organic traffic. This idea can also work with starting side hustle/any other business.
