Sorry to hear that! What are you doing to prepare?
My house is owned outright so there's a lot of capital tied up in it and I hate it here so I'm listing it Monday. Fingers crossed it sells quick and buyers aren't bothered by the virus. I'm hoping to find a buyer before it's widespread in the UK and get through the conveyancing process as quick as possible!

Wish you all the best with selling the house. I'm also in the UK, I don't think buyers will be bothered about the virus because it seems to be everywhere now anyway. Do you have anything in place to help you deal with this stress?

I'd eliminate people who join this forum and post questions that aren't contributory of nature, but lead-getting, or for idea-extracting ... you know, because they read in some book somewhere that they can post an open ended question like "Hey, what do you struggle with?" and then build a business for it.

Yea, that brings me most stress and I'd love to eliminate that behavior here.

I would say my biggest stress as an entrepreneur is finding a place to put all these piles of cash.

I get a lot of stress from rappers not using their influence properly to promote shows, do you have any solutions for me besides a drive by?

I'll play.

So for any venture you run into some area where you just have to guess on some critical piece of info.

So , its stressful because you don't actually need a full consultants range of skills but unless you personally know someone in the business you get shot down asking.

example.

Whats it cost to insure a dolphin?

My uncles a big whig at an insurance agency and this was actually something he had to figure out once. So I know a guy.

Now imagine you had a business model and that came up as a factor in your plan. Where would you even go for that? Like it IS a thing , would you google "animal insurance firm" or try messaging random people on linkedin? , Ask on reddit and hope for the best?

So as business owners you run into these little minor detail problems and a lot of the time you just have to guess.

So OP for the business idea your hunting for it would be like , micro consulting meets private investigation I guess.

Whats it cost to build a custom manometer out of xyz material and I need it here in a month?

Does a taxidermist charge less for a bulk order? What if I provide the tiny 3 piece suits for the squirrels?

Can I launch something into space? Who do we call here nasa or spacex? Do I just go to "contact us" or do they have someone who handles that?

Endless examples. Not worth a full consultants time or fees but the kind of thing where a bpunty might suffice.

Heck come to think of it that could be the business. Someone posts the question and offers a bounty and you crowd source the answer (make it a website) then you the business owner take a cut.

I would eliminate any doubts that MJ DeMarco is the GOAT after reading this reply.

Usually you get a PM when you reply to these kind of threads lol.
Ahhh, I’ve never participated before so I wasn’t sure how it went down, if he can solve Corona virus for @amp0193 and the Government for @Kak he’d damn well better share that with the rest of us!
