    Forbes is a pretty good website

    2 of the business books I've read are:
    The art of social selling: A book about online marketing and sales
    How to start and run a business: big and really extensive book on all the basics of business.

    Do you feel they benefited you?

    And watch the video, at least the first few minutes. Really good stuff.

    What businesses you guys looking to launch?
    Not everyone who works hard is rewarded! However, all those who succeed have worked hard!

    I also have an interest in business on some level. Would like to start a tech company if cyber security and my programming plans go well.

    Over the course of my life, a lot hopefully. To start off, I'm looking to make apps on my own and put them into the app store. I have a course where a guy was able to work upto a few grand a month after putting a few apps a month for 5 months. Also looking into Kindle publishing and affiliate marketing.

    Basically right now I'm looking at ways to kinda be my own boss even if I don't get rich. Getting rich, if everything orks out, will be after that.

    Will post more resources when I get back home, but general advice is to get a steady job that pays the bills, but look into setting up a business that is location independent. Be frugal with your spending and invest most of your money into either your business or you. Your mind and your body are going to be with you for the rest of your life so you ought to develop them.


    Read up on as much as you can about potential markets to break into.


    “With a man's soul and a strong back, go beyond the impossible and kick reason to the curb! Whether it's impossible or laughable, this is the path that ALL great men walk! If there's a wall in our way, we'll break it down! If there's no path, we'll make it with our own hands! The magma in our hearts is blazing like flames!Everlasting Combination: Gurren Lagann! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?! Believe in you who believes in yourself!! Isn't your Drill the one that will pierce the heavens, the earth and through to tomorrow?”

    The saying "you gotta spend money to make money" is highly accurate in almost all business.

    When I started inspecting, we had to make sure we had reliable vehicles, and also keep spreadsheets of miles logged and gas spent in order to make sure we were making money with the houses. Back in the day we had quite a bit of profit, but nowadays I'm breaking even (which is why I gotta go get a regular job and do this on the side)

    Just remember you're gonna have ups and downs, and don't get discouraged at first.

    Make a budget, stick to it as much as possible and keep a back up spending log for emergencies. If you can do that and stay within budget, you'll at least break even for the most part.

    Good thread, will watch vid after midterms.


    "Cersei is as gentle as King Maegor, as selfless as Aegon the Unworthy, as wise as Mad Aerys. She never forgets a slight, real or imagined. She takes caution for cowardice and dissent for defiance. And she is greedy. Greedy for power, for honor, for love."

    Do you plan on working in security for a few years then start a business?

    Only thing about that is the capital for the startup, so I'd suggest planning on how you'll get that capital.

    learning "how to business" from others is instantly following another mans path. a path not carved to fit your size and shoes

    its not the big ideas who earn you success. its how to avoid and deal with errors, mistakes and setbacks which lets you stay in the game.
