    Hello all. I have been hesitating to post. Mostly due to being busy. I wanted to make a progress thread for myself for accountability sake. Being very introvert it's not my style to talk about myself.

    What progress have I made?
    Not a whole lot to be honest. Tinkered with the dropshipping. Realized I'm more of a "quality product" kind of guy.
    Got roped into that t-shirt hustle for a minute. Knew it was a fad and I'm no designer.
    Did two years of running my own framing crew. (Building Houses) it's scalable in the sense I can hire and reduce labor force as needed. But I need deeper pockets to take on private work. (Pays way better than residential framing)
    But on the brighter side of things.I have been building a social media presence for two years. Inspired by @Vigilante.
    I've actually had many people contact me to find contractors and general help with projects. I might have the ability to connect customer to business for profit. I do bring a lot of value in the sense that I know my trade very well after 16 year's in the business. Still ironing out details. It's in the idea phase but I will update if I gets traction.
    Anyway that's it for now. Thanks for having me guys. Off to the hospita as I'm a new dad for the second time. Over and out!
    Sheldon.

    Hello all. Wasn't sure where to ask this question so I'm asking it here.
    Does anyone know where condo corps find there contractors?
    I own a home in one. And have been watching them insulate attics and doing siding and shingling this spring.
    Soo many safety infractions on a daily basis. Messes left for days it drives me batty to watch.
    Than it struck me. I have so much value to add here. Minimal material costs type work. Easy hustle with the rite approach. Work for months. Potential for profit to bank roll bigger ideas/pay people who can code to do some important dirty work for me ;)

    How’s everyone? I’m still a carpenter. on someone else’s payroll for now. Wanted to share a small revelation I had. When I was 10 my step father found a skateboard and brought it home to me. From that moment until the age of 25 I was a “skater” Had a major surgery after a big slam. Retired and handed all my gear to this chunky poor kid who struck a chord with me that summer. Fast forward to age 33. My 5 yr old watches an old video of dad. Proceeds to hound me for two weeks about skateboarding with me. I cracked and bought us both new set ups. Couple days ago I see one of M.J.’s instagram posts, As usual I spend the next 20 mins pondering ideas when it hit me. That’s my market! And I potentially have the next generation skater as a son. I think I’m going to focus locally where my contacts and potential value are the strongest. And dabble in Amazon. I’ve already researched suppliers and have quotes. I have a few graphics in mind, Brand name. Today is a rain day so I will be crunching numbers and figuring out which suppliers do custom graphics. The most cost effective ones just sell blanks...

    Until further notice.

    Quick update/question
    My niche: skateboarding, to get quality boards I need at least 2k for any manufacturers in North America to take me seriously. I found a supplier who is most likely shipping from China. $220 worth of products is there moq. Shipping is roughly the same cost. No graphics no promise of quality. I will be ordering a single board at full price to test quality. I guess my question is is it worth branding yourself with a potentially less than par product? Should I hold out until I can fork out 2k for a large order? One supplier is literally a 5 hour drive from me. I could pick up my own products and know the quality because I have ridden the boards myself back in my hay days.
