What are some good ideas for a small business that some of you may have?

2018-08-24 06:55:13 UTC  

Here’s a small business I just made and have already made a small profit on

2018-08-24 06:57:13 UTC  

It’s pretty hands off, but the same model could be done for other products and probably make even more money than what I’ve been making with the one above. All my sales have come from free Instagram traffic too so I haven’t invested much of anything.

2018-08-24 07:02:20 UTC  

So do you make any of the products or by from others and sell it?

2018-08-24 07:05:39 UTC  

Most the accessories I get from suppliers and sell, and most of the clothing are my own designs and then they are printed, quality tested, and shipped at the point of purchase, so there is no upfront cost on my end. It just depends which product it is. Some accessory items are using the same print method as the shirts.

2018-08-24 18:10:01 UTC  

That's my problem,i love to create but am bad about getting it set up on the business scale.

2018-08-24 18:10:23 UTC  

@Envianinteresting ok thanks.

2018-08-25 01:20:12 UTC  

Small business idea: go to a franchise expo and watch a wide variety of franchisors pitch their small businesses. Consider market demand (they present their research on this), investment level, and cultural fit. Here’s one coming up:

2018-08-25 21:15:52 UTC  

Going to pick up some chisels some time. Anyone have a preferred brand of tools?

2018-08-25 23:57:25 UTC  

Dewalt, but I’m not sure about chisels

2018-08-29 22:16:02 UTC  

Does anyone besides me use a oldtimey straight razor to shave I can give some pointers on how to use it and all around how maintain it and plus keep it razor sharp plus you can use the methodology for your knife hoby's

True Traditional Shave

2018-08-29 22:17:27 UTC  

I’ve always wanted to get one and use it. Normal shaving razors always give me bad irritation

2018-08-29 22:18:12 UTC  

A good old fashion Razor is the best shave you will ever get

2018-08-29 22:18:28 UTC  

How difficult is it to use? Is there a real danger of accidentally slashing your jugular?

2018-08-29 22:19:54 UTC  

Its easy but you need a steady hand and it has to be sharp like a minimal .10 micron edge

2018-08-29 22:21:11 UTC  

but with a Sub .10 and finer edge it will glide over your face like your not even shaving

2018-08-29 22:22:49 UTC  

It also gives you the knowledge of how to make any steel edge sharp like a razor 😎

2018-08-29 22:23:09 UTC  

Where’d you get yours?

2018-08-29 22:24:41 UTC  

Art of the Shave but their prices are the most expensive but their razors are the best .........I think west coast shaving has better deals but shop around

2018-08-29 22:28:21 UTC  

any Razor you buy must be made out of High carbon Steel or S30v stainless steel or any metal above that but those blades are rare and expensive

2018-08-29 22:28:31 UTC  
2018-08-29 22:32:06 UTC  

If you maintain your Striaght Razor it will last a Lifetime

2018-08-29 22:32:25 UTC  

What do you do and use to maintain it?

2018-08-29 22:35:13 UTC  

Lapping compound, a good metal treatment oil and a 3" by 10" piece of glass with construction paper backing

2018-08-29 22:37:33 UTC  

I’m going to look into this more and do some research, thanks @V.Balboa - PA!

2018-08-29 22:38:40 UTC  

no problem once you go Old school you will never use a Mach3/shick Virgin shaver again

2018-08-29 22:38:44 UTC  
2018-08-29 22:40:16 UTC  

If you have any more questions just shoot me a DM

2018-08-29 22:49:40 UTC  

I keep my beard at a 3 or 4 with a trimmer. I never do a proper clean shave, but I can get away with it as a tradesmen.

2018-08-29 22:54:26 UTC  

I used to use a electric trimmer but now im a Ultra-clean shave kind of guy
