    Still in the "finding ideas/finding needs" phase

    I’m not Executing Properly (Need Help, Little Success in the Fastlane)

    Yes you heard it right, 29 going on 30, and landing a man on Mars seems more hopeful then my chances reaching the fastlane. My long story (can skip to TL:DR): TL:DR: Read unscripted and TMF, vehicle is primed and fueled, yet no success. Why? Maybe because I haven’t executed properly or have...

    Finding Needs/Wants

    Okay, so this is where I'm stuck. I purchased the insiders subscriptions manly in the hope that it would give me some good ideas needing execution. There is nothing immediately viable though.

    New Skill Unlocked: The Sight (Level 2: Business Potential)

    Since reading TMF I've been shifting attention to the needs of those around me. What are they saying? What are they communicating? What do they want? What could I help them with? How can I give them value? A lot of times it's so easy. Just complimenting somebody on their appearance. Giving them...

    3:43 P.M. I’ve had it. Literally just screamed “f this” to the top my lungs! Read TMF and Unscripted, understand the 5 fast lane commandments, engine is primed and fueled, but I’m missing something. What that is, I don’t know (execution?).

    What came first...the market or the problem?

    My group and I were having a discussion about what come first; the market or the problem? If the market came first you are able to target a specific customer with a specific problem but you could be alienating other possible problems you can solve. (I choose this route) What do you think? I...

    Don't go too niche!

    At the risk of preaching to the choir. (a lot of people here will know this already). I want to talk very briefly about niche. The "follow your passion" thing gets regularly debated, and I don't see this one being done too often. So here it is: Don't go too niche! If "follow your passion" is...
