    HOT TOPIC Argument for Doing A Passion-Based Business?

    I know the general view on this forum is to not choose passion because passion does not mean having a market need. In a sense, choosing a passion based business is selfish. But I have been thinking a lot about this and actually think passion is 100% necessary. Everyone knows that when you...

    Do you care passionately about your employees?

    Philosophical Convo. You have been warned. Have you ever felt like you’re on the verge of having a really important aha moment in a conversation and then the person you’re talking to has to go? This just happened to me. I’m starting to realize that although I would like to learn a great deal...

    Crisis: Necessary to enjoy building your business?

    Quick Background (Feel Free to Skip) I am kind of in a rut. I have failed in business numerous times mainly due to underestimating how much money it costs to actually build a real ecommerce brand. So I abandoned that and will only do ecommerce once I have mild success in a low monetary capital...

    To go big, or to just get by for now?

    So a question to you all... For those that have "made it," was your first successful venture something you created just to get by - just to quit your day job? Or was it something that you started that you wanted to create a legacy? The thing that your life would be remembered for. For those...

    Bar Rescue: Elements of Failure

    One of the few programs I watch pretty religiously is BAR RESCUE. While I understand the drama is fake and manufactured, what aren't are the failures and the remodeling / rebranding that occurs. This is why I watch it because it really has some great lessons for business. Yes, even in bars...

    Hey Peeps, I'll make a fairly long story, as short as I can. I got onto this forum about 3 or so years ago by now and got inspired by Sinister Lex to try out Copywriting on Upwork. I had just been dismissed from med school and had literally no idea what to do with my life. Because I'm a...

    RANT MVP creation is the ONLY justification for learning non passion skills!

    I'm removing leaderboards from my game apps. Implementing them took 6 months of my life and almost drove me mad, yet they add absolutely nothing to the core of my game. Leaderboards don't make a bad game good. A good game makes a game good. Instead of wasting my time and sanity implementing...

    Is EDM fastlane?

    Hello everyone. In the past, I discarded my passion as a fastlane road, since I figured that it didn't obey the CENTS commandments. I'm curious to know your opinion on this. What are your thoughts on the music industry? Would you consider an electronic music producer a fastlaner? How would you...
