Hello everyone, I am a long haul airline pilot living what many have seen as a blessed life. What they've seen as flying a big jet, going to beautiful cities and making good money, I have felt as a real trade-off in being away from my young family, deteriorating health and facing a complete lack of control of my life. While not exactly the slowlane depicted in TMF, I recently read Unscripted and it resonated heavily with me; much more than it did when I first read TMF years ago. Having just spontaneously put in my 3 months notice after 12 years, I read unscripted and realized holy F*ck, I had a F*ck this event! It made me feel at peace with my decision to leave a job I had worked so hard to get to pursue a life built on entrepreneurship and living according to my own values. Reading the book and the posts on this forum have given me the confidence in what is possible if I apply my time, effort and talent to something that matters steered in a direction I want. While I have been running side businesses now for a number of years, the concepts in the books have given me a better perspective as to their utility (or futility) and value creation . I'd be lying if I said I wasn't horrified by the uncertainty lying ahead but it's given me more energy than I've had in years. I appreciate how open everyone is on this forum and hope I can contribute in a meaningful fashion. Thank you.

Welcome to the tribe! How can we help you?

Offhand, I'd venture to guess that your experience & expertise as a long-haul pilot could be a gold mine of ideas & opportunities.

Thanks very much. My primary idea revolves around that experience, what is the appropriate way to share business ideas and get feedback on the forum? Would love to hear your immediate thoughts of opportunities that came to you.

People of the forum tend to share generalities of their idea, rather than the exact idea. However, the more detail you share, the better the feedback you'll get. People tend to share more details on the insider section.

For the idea you're considering, does it meet CENTS criteria?

Appreciate the help. As for the cents criteria, I am struggling with questions of scale for a service as well as barriers to entry. I will hop on the forums and hope to get some insight on how to tackle different components of setting this operation up correctly.
