    Old dog with new tricks

    INTRO 
    Hello world. Just joined the party but looks like I'm way late. I'm retired or trying to be from my 30 year business farming clams, yes I said clams; more specifically the Geoduck clam. I started way back before it was a thing, if it is a thing. Now that I don't spend most of my day 60 feet...

    Making ~400k/year freelancing as a ios developer. How to take myself out of the programmer seat and into the business owner seat?

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    Hey guys, I've made a few posts already here about what I'm doing to earn this much as a mobile iOS developer. I essentially work multiple remote contracts and work around the clock. While this level of income is good, I wanted to get some advice on how to grow more and go from developer to...

    on the Road to 100k as a software developer, 5 red flags to watch out for with startups

    EXECUTION 
    I recently spoke with the CEO of a decently early-stage startup. He had people on his advisory board and people in his team with interesting backgrounds. One was even one of the higher-ups at Disney. He was an author who I assumed was decently accomplished, he wasn’t starving but he wasn’t JK...

    Need Feedback on My Web App Idea and If I Should Pursue?

    IDEA 
    I want to build a web app for generating a meal plan based on budget, family size, time, excluding unliked ingredients, and dietary needs (Calories, Macro-nutrients, Allergies, Gluten Free, Keto, Vegan, Dairy Free, etc.). When your meal plan is generated you get access to your daily/weekly...

    Starting towards the old dream at 40

    EXECUTION 
    OK, after a long time lurking and not being too active at all(to say the least), the time has come. This will be the diary of me moving towards the old dream of mine, on which I'll probably expand later. The goal is to update this thread at least twice a month with the progress, the failures and...

    Making decisions about online markets

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    I'm a fastlane newbie with experience in software development and have been thinking about building my own brand. However, this motivation has come from a software developer with a brand promoting the same lifestyle to thousands of other software developers. (Not sure if a guru or...) Now the...

    Introduction & story: High-school Programmer, aspiring innovator

    INTRO 
    "You should be focusing on school" they tell me "You are putting too many responsibilities on yourself too early", and that "The time for that is when you are older". It's hard to disagree with these statements when they are coming from your own mother, especially when she is working a cashier...

    Just read TMF. Someday is today

    MINDSET 
    I’ve just read TMF and It’s been a wake up call for me. I’ve finally realized what “someday” really means: all this time I have been thinking “some day I’ll start my own business”, waiting for the moment I have the experience or knowledge or money, “someday when I have the money” or “someday...

I came here after I’ve finished reading TMF and I’m very glad that I did so as it really opened my eyes on many aspects of life (big thanks to you @MJ DeMarco !). I’ve been reading the forum for a while and I’ve finally decided to...

    Creating the next social media giant...

    SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING 
    I’m willing to create a social media site but the thing is. I don’t know how sites like reddit tumblr or even Twitter make their money. I also don’t know how they are able to price their apps. I want to create a site that is either pay for once or subscription based. I would even replace patreon...

    Hello world

    INTRO 
    Hi, I am a programmer from Czech Republic. I visit a High School. I wanted to make money while I'm in school, but fliping burgers seemed to be a bad idea so now I'm employed as a software developer in a small company, that creates CRM. With my mate from school, we are building some kind of a...

    48 years old finished Unscripted and sad.

    INTRO 
    I am a little sad after finishing the book. Maybe it's because the book is aimed at younger people and I am already close to 50. I am a family doctor in Florida. About two years ago, I quit my two jobs and dropped out of traditional medicine. By traditional, I mean the typical busy clinic where...
