Message from Logan in MacGuyver - Skills & Academics #entrepreneurship
Yeah, way ahead of you there, my friend.
I joined real estate meetup groups, then started one of my own, where I could invite only heavy hitters. Those connections later paid off with house flipping, I just finished my second one after Xmas.
I have a lunch meeting tomorrow with a gentleman who runs the largest Entrepreneurs group in the main county I want to serve.
@Tyler0317 Yeah Louis indicated that was your line of work before, so I kinda-sorta knew what you were up to. That's awesome.
If anybody needs a website or digital marketing for their business, just reach out 😃
Hey everyone. I have expertise in running startups. My MBA concentration is entrepreneurship. I’m here to help.
@Papa Pizzagate have you done market research for your potential endeavor? Have an ideal consumer in mind? How do others in your particular industry acquire and retain customers? Feel free to keep it as vague as you need.
@Ryan -NJ I've done a good amount of research, yes. Youre coming to Philly this weekend, right? Let's talk about that as well as that other thing you dmed me about in person
has anyone here got into trucking as a lease or owner operator? Just got my doubles/triples after a few years non-CDL work and may buy a tractor after a few months as a company driver on a local route.
I'd like to get a second truck and start putting IE members through trucking school here in northwestern Montana. The goal is to be OTR for just three or four days a week. There seems to be no shortage of loads to and from northwestern Montana on load app I'm looking at.
Trucking is in high demand. Great idea. Good luck.
@Logan If you need any help with creating and implementing a startup strategy, let me know.
@Logan trucking sucks for a family man, dude. The only money is over the road, and you only go home once a week
@John O - I am not. I have experience in startups and business strategy.
@John O - I was OTR for a year. If you work for yourself and are directly in touch with a broker you can go out for three days and it will pay the bills for the whole week
Right on, dude
If anybody needs help with digital marketing, hit me up.
my current job as a company driver gets me home every night and pays almost 70 a year which is not bad really
Cool. I didn't know you already had experience in it, I thought you were going in blind. Sounds good, man, good luck
$70,000 a year?
Truckers rise up
@Jacob yea I was going to wait until you got here but I want to get you in the compound.
be your own boss, start your own company, very cheap rent, be part of a little community, etc
cheapest rent is if you live with us. We are going to buy a house in a few months, possibly with a workshop and a granny flat for IE Kingz to stay in on a semi-permanent basis
that would actually be cool
yep. by the time you graduate we should be in the flow of things. We want to do team runs to CA and back, taking 3 or 4 days so the rest of the time we can just be with family or working on projects like writing and athletics
good evening folks,
I’ve been thinking about getting into freelance translation (English>Russian and vice versa) and I wanted to start in friendly circles. If anyone can point me towards an individual or organization that could use such a service, I’d love to know more.
(reposted from languages channel)
I don’t know much about translation. Is this a service that would be useful to market to multinational corporations with reciprocal agreements?
Richard's ex (kidding kidding)
@Alex Kolchak - NY Call Jared Taylor.
Seriously, I called AmRen 2 years ago to buy tickets and Uncle Jared answered the phone and chatted with me for 5 mins.
Jared Taylor is in the business of translating Japanese>English
Translating directions for products, labels, and answering emails for small to mid-size foreign companies can make great money.
Someone has to translate the shipping label, navigate the USPS and be able to communicate with customers and suppliers for those Anime shipments. 😉
Exactly what I was looking for as a startup. You saved me a ton of money.
Or well, maybe not a *ton*, but a handful for sure!
