Hi All! Great to join this forum! I feel very inspired by MJ's Fastlane book and have just started the "thinking process" as to the need I can solve. My background is in tech writing and editing. A business of that kind does not strike me as an idea amenable to CENTS. I am very good at tech editing especially, but even if I were overwhelmed with clients, I'd make a decent income at best, and nothing on the scale of Fastlane. Hiring other writers and editors to work for me, well, that would introduce a whole host of problems that I don't even want to touch, and I'd probably violate the CENTS commandments at some point.

I'll be thinking and looking for needs I can solve while using my abilities and experience, but I am not restricting myself to tech writing and editing. Writing books, e.g. romance/adventure novels *might* be turned into a Fastlane business, but (all things considered) it's an extremely remote possibility and, frankly, not something I'd love doing... haven't tried to know for sure.

Hi There! Welcome to the forum Alexan!
There are tons of threads on here about copywriting and publishing. If you search around you might find a progress thread or AMA that can give you some ideas.
