    What can YOU do to make a sale in 7 days?

    EXECUTION 
    The main concept from “The 7-Day Startup” by Dan Norris is to launch in 7 days. I like to think you should be able to make a sale in 7 days. What each of us is able to launch or sell in 7 days is different. For example, if you need $50k to launch/make a sale but can’t access $50k in 7 days...

    IDEA 
    I'm currently in the process of validating two ideas, one being a membership group and another a lead generation business. So, I had to search how to do it and created a two-part method. Before trying this I would recommend running your idea through the CENTS framework. However, if you want...

    Getting paid for waiting...

    I've been on and off the forum these past couple of years. Trying various different businesses and ideas. I'm back in the job market and while waiting on someone for a meeting I had an idea, what if the late guy paid me for making me wait for him? I figured I'm not the only one waiting on...

    Validation for Peer-to-Peer Marketplace

    Greetings from Fountain Hills, Arizona. I can confirm that both of MJ’s claims from Unscripted are true: (1) it is very sunny; and (2) the average age is 92. I finally got my wife to read the books, we’ve come up with a business idea, and now we're trying to come up with a sensible way to...

    IDEA 
    You have all have great ideas. You know those innovative business revelations that no one else has thought of or has executed on. You know the market. You thought out your brilliant idea. Maybe you even wrote a detailed outline on how it will work. You do a keyword analysis. You vet out your...

    How To Stop Seeking Permission/Validation?

    MINDSET 
    I'll try not to get too sappy, but this is something that I have struggled with forever. I can never start or buy anything before it is validated by other people. Whether it's starting a business or making an expensive purchase, I always have the urge to seek out other people's opinions before...

    I have a few ideas in mind for Ecommerce physical products. Curious what you all think as to what the most current and latest effective methods to validate and test a product/market need. I feel landing pages might piss people off / feel spammy when they find out you don't have stock and ask...

    What comes first: Validation or preparation?

    An interesting thought came to my mind and I just can't seem to decide. What comes first: validation of an idea or the preparation, the research part? I just don't know. It seems from my experience that I have to do a little of preparation before I could validate the idea, but then again when...
