INTRO Introducing myself

I'm a failed entrepreneur, I attended some college but was interested in online entrepreneurship since social media kicked off in the early 2000s, and was sick of the "mass media" brainwashing, or people who think "life is meaningless" - which discouraged self-empowerment.

My interest was writing as well as worldviews (e.x. politics, religion, etc); I succeeded in having writing published by a company in New York, but wasn't able to turn it into a job. My self-assesment is that my attitude was too self-centered, and that I was so much smarter than "the uneducated idiots" in the mass media, that I didn't have to listen to anyone but myself, and that this was a factor in where I am at right now - I also blamed bad parental role models, but am past that resentment.

I'm primarily interested in listening to other entrepreneurs in order to gain insight, rather than being caught up in "my own little world". Thanks for your time. - Sam

Hey Sam, welcome to the forum!

What is your current plan of action or situation?

Do you have a job right now that gets you monthly income?

What kind of business do you want to build to accelerate your wealth accumulation? Will it be something to do with writing?

Thanks Champion.

My 'game plan' was either writing or social media (e.x. writing fiction or non-fiction, such as through amazon, or publishing videos on a platform such as Youtube).

I believe I have talent, though the marketing nuances and making it sustainable are what irk me.

Welcome!

Welcome Bishop. No such thing as a Failed Entrepreneur, only a learning one gaining experience.

But you may be failing to see opportunities all around you.

A simple example...

You do not have to be an expert to interview one. Or several. That is a potential product/resource for others to benefit from.
