    Note: I made a revamp of this post as I realised I was coming off in a way I wasn’t intending to and clarified some of the points thanks to the suggestions of @Andy Black . I put up the original post in a rush so many of the points were not clear, and I apologise for that.

    ==

    The Gist
    I come up with ideas all the time.

    For the ideas that I get around to actually executing, I get pretty decent success rates so I find that having so many ideas just sitting there doing nothing is a waste.

    I'm also good at execution and I've had good success working with people to execute their ideas and would like to do the same for other aspiring fastlaners.

    Check out my progress thread for a couple examples: A Story of Rapid Execution

    This Entire Post Summarized into One Sentence
    I am looking for driven, interesting people to do cool sh*t with me and to take massive action to build small projects that get results super quickly.

    This is For You if..
    • You are an aspiring fastlaner who wants to start something but not sure what to start
    • You are an aspiring fastlaner with an existing business idea and hoping for someone to work with to bring said idea to fruition (Smart, because even Y Combinator highly recommends companies they invest in to have at least 2 co-founders)
    • You’re hardworking, cool and simply want to find someone to work with for whatever reason. I will not work with difficult people no matter how talented and smart

    This is NOT For You if..
    • You despise hard work and expect me to hire hire hire while you sit there and strategise. We are going to bootstrap as much as we can at the start.
    • You think you have a million dollar idea and if the idea doesn’t work, it must be my fault. If you think ideas are so important, you need to read this: “Ideas are just a multiplier of execution”

    How This is Going to Work
    • We will discuss and agree on an idea and business model. The eventual idea would most likely come from me, but it could come from you as well, depending on your skillset and interests
    • You are expected to commit full-time to the project. If you are holding on to a day-job out of necessity, the odds of making things work will for sure be lower but let's talk about it
    • I will provide resources and support in the form of VA's. I will front all required costs
    • We will collaborate via Slack & Wunderlist as per my current workflow
    • Default profit-sharing scheme would be 70/30 > 70% to me and 30% to you

    Why You Might Want to Trust Me to Get Results
    • I run a successful furniture retail company in my country
    • I am a pretty successful affiliate marketer and have done well with CPA offers and information products
    • I have a high hit rate on side projects and regularly create assets that generate ~5 figures pretty easily and quickly
    • I have a knack for understanding quickly and clearly how industries work, and have generated very good results with investing in crypto assets and ICO’s despite the recent crash in BTC price
    • That said, if you still don’t trust me, that is fine but please do not demand that I "prove my worthiness" to you, because we are likely not a good fit
    Specific types of people I am actively looking for right now
    1. Someone with technical knowledge to create a SaaS business i.e. programming skills
    2. Someone with deep knowledge or interest in the booming crypto space
    3. Someone with specific skillsets that can be turned into info products or courses

    Just to make this clear..

    This is NOT an offer for coaching.

    Hence, I do not feel obliged to have to prove anything to you.

    I am not interested to persuade you, so if this doesn’t make sense to you, I wish you all the best.

    If you’re interested, let’s chat.

    If not, that’s fine.

    I’ve got a couple really interesting responses so far, and look forward to more interesting conversations.

    Before exploring and/or committing to such an offer could you tell me more about you, your successes, why you would be a good mentor, what an aspiring entrepreneur can expect to learn from you.

    To me, the educational aspect of this offer would mean more than the financial so I'd want to know why you consider yourself a good mentor other than the fact that you have money to invest in a project.

    Intro:
    I may be interested in SaaS with you as I'm working on finding niche vertical.

    Questions for you:
    1. Are any of your ideas validated?
    2. What areas of expertise to do you have?
    3. What is this vision you have?
    4. How much time do you have available to allocate?
    5. Who owns admin on IP and workflows? (This is not who owns the idea)
    6. Do you have any legal contracts drawn out?
    7. Have you setup a separate legal entity outside of your other businesses for this?
    8. Who owns admin on banking?
    9. Is the profit share negotiable?
    10. Who has last decision?
    Backstory:
    I'm a beginner in the truest sense of word for coding. I do however have sales skills and have read 17 books. I'm currently learning marketing and copywriting.

    I have 1 year of experience coding for mobile. I can probably ask decent questions for outsourcing with project development and sell out the costs for us.

    I also belong to technology groups and would be willing to get up to speed on crypto applications.

    Not a fan of most "guru" info products. I do like courses that teach a practical skill though.

    6 failures so far because I decided to "come up with" the idea myself, which is why I'm asking if your ideas have been validated. Taking a 180 approach now.

    Explanation of questions:
    I also asked you what I think are 10 of the most important questions to ask as I've been down this route before. Fwiw, your post doesn't inspire confidence, but I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt because I think most people have positive intentions.

    Yes. The previous headline was clever, but clarity trumps cleverness every time.

    First of all, my apologies to the posters on this thread and for those who PM-ed me, it's Chinese New Year over here and I haven't had much time to do the revamp I wanted to do but it's done now!

    Yeah I know, looking back the old one really sucked, blame it on wanting to "Ready, Fire, Aim" and putting stuff up first and course-correcting afterwards lol.

    Thanks for the response, I think the newly revamped post should provide the answers you are looking for.

    Thanks for the response, please check out the newly revamped post and hopefully it provides more clarity on what kind of arrangement this really is.

    No, none of my ideas are "validated", I do not have legal contracts drawn out, and no separate legal entity will be set up unless/until the project takes off and we decide to review.

    This whole project is supposed to be a quick, cool, and hopefully educational experience. Sounds like it's not something you would be interested in to be honest, and I'm sorry my post didn't inspire confidence for you.

    On hindsight it wasn't even clever at all as this is too much of a deviation from my previous idea. Thanks for your suggestions and kick in the ass to change things up.

    I've received a bunch of PM's right after the revamp, and this time from much more potential parties.

    Please keep the PM's coming folks.

    Hopefully I get to feature some success stories soon; looking forward!

    I just started a convo with you, I think that's the right way to do it? :) Let me know if it worked.
