I’ve been reading “Freelance to Freedom” by Vincent Pugliese and I’m very inspired to start my own business. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time but I just haven’t found the right idea. I got inspired by a part in the book where he talks to his dad and his dad gives him the advice to figure out what his skills are and how he can use them to make money. It’s kind of obvious that’s how you should think, but instead I’ve been focusing on “how can I come up with a unique world-changing product”, which is kind of overwhelming.I’m currently a senior software engineer at a big tech company in San Francisco and have ~10 years of experience. Instead of working as an engineer for a company, I’m thinking of doing consulting. I would build entire backend solutions for small companies by myself and use offshore teams and friends if I can’t do everything by myself. This is what my naive brain is thinking:Make a post on Reddit to get help to figure out if this is feasible.Get in contact with a lawyer to see how I should handle this legally with my current employer. Any bay area lawyer recommendations?Register a company.Create a website stating the services I provide and how to get in contact with me.Pay for facebook/instagram/reddit/craigslist ads to get clients.Start working on projects after work and during the weekends and when I have a steady number of projects coming in I’ll quit my current job.So, my questions are:Is this feasible?Is this legal with my current job? I think my employment contract is pretty standard bay area.Did anyone else do this? How did it work out?tldr; Is it legal and feasible to build backend solutions for small companies on the side when you work as a backend engineer for a tech company in San Francisco?

Hello!Not sure if you can help me I have a small website and small but growing podcast. I would like to start accepting donations directly without going via Patron or Justgiving etc, maybe using Paypal? I don’t expect this to generate much but it would help me devote more time to growing it.My questions:How best to go about this?How do I declare any income gained in this way (UK based)?I would also like to accept Bitcoin donations what is the current legal status of this in the UK and is their any advantage of this type of donation?If I were able to grow this to a larger scale what would be the appropriate legal structure for me to adopt in order to turn this in to a small business or would it be best to keep going as an individual accepting donations? At what stage should this happen?If my website or podcast gained any income via advertising or sponsorship how to a treat this money?If you can answer one or any of these questions that would be great. I am new to this but would love to grow it but am scared of doing something wrong.(sorry if this is in the wrong place)

As I was putting myself through college, I understood that I wanted to become an entrepreneur. I’ve majored in International Business, minored in Finance and I wanted to get into importing and exporting business. I spent over 5.5 years in college to get my bachelor’s degree. It took me longer to graduate than I wanted to because I was working at many different odd jobs during my school years to support myself. During my last 2 years in college, I have also traded vehicles. I would buy a car that I thought was undervalued and then I would resell it. In general it worked well and from time to time, I would lose money as well. The more I worked on it, the more knowledgeable and experienced I became at selling them. But I didn’t want to be a car salesperson for some reason and I wanted to explore other businesses.When I was in my last semester, one of my friends offered me to join a startup that he was developing. At that time, I didn’t have any idea about what it was like to develop a startup, but I’ve heard many times how media would picture founders who’ve built successful technology companies. Without thinking long, I accepted the offer and joined his company as a co-founder. We’ve started developing a Fintech company that would help Millennials invest in fractional shares with as little as $1 and help them gain the fundamental knowledge of finance/investments through our blog posts and educational material. Long story short, the company failed after over 2 years of developing it. I’ve put all my savings into it and I’ve used my credit cards to their max. We’ve also built a website during winter to sell 'Christmas Trees’, but it has failed as well.Then we’ve built an Immigration website tailored towards immigrants from Eastern Europe where we would help them with filling out various immigration forms and translations. That business has also failed.As we’ve built new products over and over, we learned from our past mistakes and the following products would come out better than the previous ones. In the last 3 months, we've built 2 SaaS companies and finally started seeing traction. Now both of these companies are bringing 4-5k MRR (monthly recurring revenue) and we finally started to understand what products might work and what products might not work. I look back and think that it took us almost 3 years to learn these things. I thought what if we had mentors when we started who would show us guidance or steps that we needed to take in order to increase our odds of success. If they could show us the things we needed to avoid, then we wouldn’t go through so much struggle and failures. We still don’t consider ourselves successful, it’s just our hard work started paying off slowly. It could come to us earlier, but not after 3 years.Recently I’ve run into a product called “DIY Development Roadmap" that is developed by SUPERTEAM(https://www.superteam.io) and I thought if I saw this 2 years ago while I was in college, I would probably not have made so many mistakes building online businesses. They provide a comprehensive step-by-step guide on planning, hiring, building and launching your idea.I am not saying it would be an easy process, but at least I wouldn’t make dumb mistakes and waste my time, money and energy. What are your thoughts about that, have you ever gone through similar experiences?

Hi Redditors, some of you may have read my previous article on my justification of using blockchain for marketing purposes. Here I just want to share my story of how I got started with this cause.My family moved to Canada back in 1995 through the Immigration Investment Program. The main requirement for this was to invest and own a business in Canada for a period of time. We ended up buying a small photo finishing store a city around Toronto, Canada.I witnessed the hard work they put into every photo film and always strives for the truest colors of each image. They would actually throw out an entire set if the color was a bit off. They took pride in their work and services. But it was a very tough business to be in. In fact, we were losing $3–5,000 a month running that place. On top of the rent, utilities, and inventory, we also had an old photofinishing machine that was worn out and costed a fortune to fix. They were left with little-to-no money for advertisement and marketing. The lack of growth was slowly killing the business. The overwhelming stress even caused my mom to faint a few times.The financial stress was really caused by low revenue, which resulted from a lack of exposure and traffic from the community. Even though the store had been there for a few years, very little people knew of us. The bigger franchises were often the top choices for people. They had more marketing dollars to be on TV, magazine, and radio. They had the budget to work with postal offices to distribute flyers and coupons. They were well known and popular. Trying to take their businesses meant we had to drop our prices even further, which made things even worse.This went on for about 3 years and we sold the business as soon as we met the immigration requirement. It was just not a sustainable investment. If only there were easier ways for others in the community to see the quality and heart that my parents put into their work…Well, that thought stayed with me. After 20 years, even in the days of social media and everyone being more connected than ever, the same lack of exposure problem still exist for small busineseses. It has motivated me to pursue a career in marketing. In fact, experiencing the problem first hand became my cause for Nodis.io.Thanks for reading!--------------------------------------------------------------Original content came from -> https://hackernoon.com/what-can-blockchain-do-for-small-business-marketing-7a1458f1784cIf you want to follow our project, please see a link in my profile to join our Instagram and Telegram!
Hi Redditors, as some of you may have seen my other post about my rationale for using blockchain in Marketing, this post is about which blockchain to use. The project (Nodis.io) that I am working on is looking to move forward on the NEO blockchain platform. Here is a little learning of why I feel NEO is the better bet for reasons like cost, development-easiness, and transaction speed side.Smart Economy - NEO specifically developed the blockchain with trades and economy in mind. Its goal is to digitize any physical assets. All users have a digital identity so that the owners are clearly identified. This is extremely important for legal compliance and legitimacy of ownership.High Transaction per Second (TPS) - NODIS.io has the potential to generate significant amounts of transactions due to the community validation feature. We need a blockchain that has high TPS. Bitcoin can do 3–4 transaction per second, Ethereum does around 15, and NEO is currently at 1,000 with the potential to get up to 10,000. Note that I am aware of Ethereum's Sharding but that may not be implemented until 2020.Free Cost of Storage (as of now)- As mentioned above, while there is a cost of 0.0001 GAS for each transaction, there is no cost for storage.Efficient Consensus Mechanism- NEO uses the Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance (dBFT) consensus mechanism. It allows for the community to decide who will be the consensus node (bookkeeper). A consensus is achieved when two-thirds of the voting participants agree with the consensus node's version of the blockchain.3 This mechanism allows for quicker validations with less resource consumption for higher scalability.Finality- Due to NEO's dBFT consensus system, there will be no chance of forking. As long as the consensus node has 66% of the vote, the decision will be enforced. In the case that the community does not agree with the consensus node, a replacement bookkeeper will take the spot to propose an agreeable version.NeoContract (Smart Contract 2.0)- NEO uses a lightweight virtual machine called NeoVM. It allows for faster start up while taking less resources. It is highly scalable, reliable, and possesses high certainty through a combination of high concurrency, dynamic partitioning and low-coupling design. It also optimizes and reorganizes Smart Contract codes before executing for efficiency. Lastly, it can be used with familiar IDEs such as Visual Studio and Eclipse.Coding Language Flexibility- NEO allows for C#, Java, Python, and Go programming languages.What do you guys think of these justifications? Do you think they are sufficient reasons over the more popular Ethereum?Original article from -> https://hackernoon.com/identifying-the-right-blockchain-for-business-marketing-solution-6ad7e1f18512--------------------------------------------------------------You can see my profile for a link to our Telegram to learn more about this project!
