Hi Everyone,

Here to introduce myself. I'm an employee right now with a side business walking tour that has almost broke $1k in revenue.

I've started a number of projects and usually don't get more than 2-3 months in with them. I've made $1k with another project and $400 with a different one-off sale.

I want to build a fastlane business and am working on choosing the idea and running with it.

Thank you all for the content I've read on here so far. I'm loving this forum.

Oh cool, hello fellow Chicagoan! Likely the sex industry, though also excited about personal finance. What about you? Where are you at with your business?

I'd say that's fair. I also think that, with a few projects circling in my head at once, I'm afraid of failing...if I commit to one, that means I could unambiguously fail at it. With other projects, I could say one failure just means it wasn't the right project...

I have the product and the supplies I need for maintenance (was a several hundred dollar investment).

So the next 3 steps:
1. Create a (basic) website
2. Market services on specific websites I have in a list
3. Complete first sale
