    I'm lost and discouraged about my Ad Agency even though I got results. Any advice?

    I spent thousands of dollars of unemployment benefits during the C0VlD pandemic on courses that teaches you how to start a digital marketing agency so I wouldn't have to go back to the assembly line earning $8.00 per hour. I have no degree and really no marketable skills and even worse I have...

    Stay-at-home dad with a $100k budget to start a side business while parenting. What business do you recommend?

    Curious what you folks would do in my situation. I'm 34, background in online marketing, renewables, consumer products, fund raising and living in NYC. I started several businesses before but not in this scenario. The business should have the aim to run profitably without me in the future. Shoot!
