I have been working a start-up recently to give me something to do after retirement and a little extra income. The business has recently been registered as a corporation with the Philippines Securities and Exchange Commission. Nowhere to go but up now! Anyone out there looking to do business in Southeast Asia should drop me a line.

Good evening gents, I have finally found something I feel that is my passion and calling. Health. I have joined a company that truly cares about their customers and partners! This company is truly a blessing to me and my family! If you are interested in health, would like to shed a couple pounds, or even gain some lean muscle, contact me and I will put you in the right direction! Ciao!

I've held jobs, lost and found jobs (all three sometimes easily and sometimes not so), started businesses (ditto), and really do want to start another one. But how to convince my wife that it's less risky -- or at least no more risky -- than a "real" job these days?

One thing I know I need both at home and whatever I'm doing for work: how to pitch -- there's a book Good in a Room and maybe even her coaching or at least webinars: www.goodinaroom.com

Hello, my name is Starkovich from Texas.  I'm launching a lifestyle consulting and management business.  I am on Facebook right now, but will be doing a website in the next months.  I am going to be focusing on helping people who want to move from one social class to another by teaching them the rules and strategizing their lives to be who they want to be.  I will also help them network with others to have relationships to replace the ones they may be required to leave behind in their pursuits.

Uptown Seb,  what is the name of your company?  Do you have a website?

Comment by Ewin on February 9, 2012 at 9:53pm

Thomas, I use the normal social networks (Facebook, twitter) I have recently added Pinterest which is really unique and a lot fun.  I wrote an article about it and will post it when it is published.

Hi Gentlemen.  I own Ewin's Dry Goods.  I love the process of growing an idea.  Looking forward to many good discussions.

Does anyone in this group have experience and/or knowledge about starting and operating a freight brokerage business?  Fair warning--I'm looking for brains to pick.

I'm a new aromantic ace. Any questions?

Hey everyone! I'm a 23 year old (cis) man from the UK. I'm both asexual and aromantic, as I only realised a couple of months ago. I'm currently at uni studying education, but I want to go into psychology rather than teaching. Currently I'm only out as aro-ace to my friends on Reddit, not to my friends at uni. Any questions?See More
