Starting a new online business - open journal
Yo,

I've decided to start a yet another online business.

Why?

Because I discovered that nothing makes me feel better than "doing" shit. After this intense period of travel (Kilimanjaro and Tanzania, NZ, OZ, North Pole, sailing and a bunch of other shit) I feel like being productive a little and my old businesses are boring for me already and more or less run themselves.

These past few days I've been feeling great learning theory for my day skipper course (yahoooo!) and I thought that it would be really nice to start up a new business just to prove myself, again, that I can make money out of thin air, again and again.

I can't write you what it is exactly but I'll describe the process and how much I spent at each stage, and how it's going.

My plan is to set it up, get it going, and then as per the usual way I do it, hand it over to someone but keep controlling it and owning it.

I just bought a .guru domain for about $28.

I've also started looking for a copyrighter to write a landing page. The site will consist of almost nothing but a landing page, and a sign up form.

I'll keep this thread updated with the progress.

Good luck to me.

Fuck it, I decided that by the time I find someone and explain them what I need, I can do it myself and better. Writing copy.

Just spent 2-3 hours? Don't know how much time past, on writing up the copy for the landing page. I think at first the site will be just a landing page and "contact us" form.

Next step is I've contacted my designer who worked for me a bunch of time, for a quote on taking this text and turning it into a landing page, and I sent her an example of something I like. I sent her two sites, one for the design, another for colors and style. Made a special request to use as many HTML 5 gimmicks as possible to make it look as sleep as it can be.

Start your own thread buddy ;-)

The designer got back to me, she wants $1800. Fuck that, will negotiate .

Just so you understand my work ethics, and why I've made my first mil many years before I was 30. It's 18:26 and I didn't have breakfast or lunch. Didn't move away from my computer really. And I don't even need this new company, but I'm designing it so my real life friends can be my sales people, to help them out.

RE: Starting a new online business - open journal
I decided to accept the $1800 offer because I know what I'm getting and I want to finish it and not lose momentum.
It is an expensive service so once it's ready, I will recruit sales from my real life friends who can do it part time and will pay them a commission once they sign up a client. So I'll get everything ready (the site, training material, sales material to help them close deals) - and once it's ready - will take on 3-4 friends to do it and will see how it goes.

Once they sign up just 3-4 clients - I'll find a partner and will transfer the whole operation to him.

RE: Starting a new online business - open journal
I'm in Barcelona, haven't been here in about 8 years I think, and all I want to do is sit in front of the computer and work.

I've lined up animators for a whiteboard explainer video, and copy writers. Waiting for the designer to finish the site, will then add the animation.

This doesn't provide any value. It's like boasting for no reason. Hey guys I ate a chicken breast and broccoli today and worked out on my legs to build muscle. Its common Knowledge. Building a business is fucking easy so why all the show? Obviously, you try to impress people who are a bit dumb on the subject? I guess you could be as rich as frank kern, but I greatly doubt it... id spend 1,000 now to bet against it. I don't see him on a pick up forum trying to say a bunch of shit. Its at least more targeted. If you're really just bored and not trying to sell dummies on a dream to buy your ebook then record your process more thoroughly so a dummie can actually do something with it. But you sound like a bragging pick up artist trying to DHV yourself to, not girls, but guys who will buy shit from you. But already you showed major red flags of a scam.

haha, you're new here.

It's seems like not much info but it shows the progress. It's a little like how you produce a film, you get the script, you hire the producer, you find the locations, you need to put all the pieces together. it's really a mechanical process. Most things are.
