    My Business Progress Report: Failures, Successes & Accountability

    I was ''lurking'' the forum once again and decided to start a progress report to provide insights into different failures and successes along the way. My ''business'' is a website or two actually, but I'm focusing on my second site as of now. I started my website journey on the 13th of January...

    Moving from rural Hawaii to Southern California in pursuit of entrepreneurship

    Ive been living on a farm on rural big island for the past 5 years. It has become very apparent that it is very difficult to create something for society while not participating with it. I have noticed my interpersonal skills have regressed over the last few years. It feels like I'm back to the...

    Building a community on YouTube from scratch

    There’s less than half a year left (currently 167 days) until 2021 comes to a close and I’ve accomplished nothing. Sure, I’ve made some progress in my day job (content marketer), but apart from that? Nada. That’s the harsh truth. And the primary cause is a lack of focus on one thing and a...

    Creating, Launching, And Growing A Podcast From Scratch In 2021

    My goal in this thread is to share my journey of creating a podcast and growing it from scratch. Hopefully, some of you can find value in it. My own selfish reasons for doing this is that I know constructive feedback, suggestions, and questions will help me improve. Starting from scratch I...

This is going to be my progress thread(updating weekly on my progress) and I’m hoping I’d be a regular here. I have decided to scale my dad’s current business( which I’m...

    Building/Scaling a chatbot agency from nothing in 2020

    Buying my Porsche

    So I have been postponing my Porsche purchase for a couple of years now and I thought it would make a great birthday present for myself next year.

    The Digital Marketing Dream

    Morning Everyone, I thought I would start this thread for a number of reasons; 1. Outline and talk about any issues I experience hopefully shedding light for anyone else who follows this path 2. As a bit of a brain dump that I can come back to when I go off piste 3. Accountability 4. I'm...

    $30,000+ in first year as affiliate. Now looking to SCALE.

    $30,000 in a year isn’t sexy. It’s not quit-your-job money. But as a side hustle that is mostly (I shudder to use this word) “passive”, I think that’s a pretty respectable amount and shows promise that I can actually do this. And by “do this”, I mean “make a whole lot more”. Actually, 30k is...

    Starting Web Design Company(Progress Thread)

    Hello everyone, I read TMF a few years back but I never really acted on what I learned from it. A couple of years ago I read Fox's thread about starting a web design company and I started to learn html but I stopped shortly after starting. A couple of weeks ago I read Sean's post about starting...

    2019: The year of ME

    Is this just another productivity thread that lasts 3 posts and stops dead in its tracks (I've been guilty of that)? If that's what you're looking for, this ain't it. Let me just give you a slight run down of my life before I continue on because I don't want to deviate from the actual meaning...
