Plasticine Porter replied to Caleb Kerney's discussion Can I make money from watching TV/Movies?
"Making money by watching movies and TV is completely doable.  It's possible to turn almost anything into a business (consider that there are people who make a living by building backyard ice hockey rinks; there is a niche for…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Aaron Kerr's discussion The Sneezing Christmas Tree - A gift for your family to enjoy this Christmas
"Congratulations on your book, Aaron.  Lots of great children's books start out as stories that parents tell their kids.  I think that Kipling first narrated "The Jungle Book" to his daughter (don't quote me on that,…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Allan Dubon's discussion Matching your income
"I have not matched a full-time income with my numerous side gigs, but that is a lofty goal and one I hope to achieve.  I am very curious to find out how other people did it.  I know it can be done. For me the question is kind of…"

"Welcome back, and congrats on becoming El Presidente!  Please tell us more details about your wild ride from doing pressure washing on days off to being El Presidente.  It sounds like it has been an eventful year."

Plasticine Porter replied to Robert Longley's discussion What's your biggest challenge going into 2017?
"Congrats on your weight loss, Allan!  And congrats on being so focused, Robert.  I think my biggest challenge in 2017 is to keep going with my projects when I get knocked down.  Two of my freelance writing projects just ended abruptly…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Jen McDonough "The Iron Jen"'s discussion What have you done in 2016 and where are you going in 2017?
"I thought of another goal/obstacle for 2017; living within my means.  I never think of myself as someone who lives extravagantly; I live in the Midwest, not in a penthouse apartment in Manhattan, and I cook at home frequently, so it could be a…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Jeff David's discussion My Intake is Less, but my Output is More
"Consuming less and producing more is a good way of thinking about it.  I have also recently had to cut down on watching videos, listening to podcasts, and reading blogs and subscriptions emails.  I strongly believe that it is important to…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Jen McDonough "The Iron Jen"'s discussion What have you done in 2016 and where are you going in 2017?
"My accomplishments in 2016 include making progress with our (my friends and I) website making business, starting with websites for local businesses in Elkhart, IN and then getting word of mouth referrals in Anaheim, CA and even one that does DJ…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Allan Dubon's discussion Are clients calling you?
"I agree, John, that offering prospective clients a free product or service in the beginning is a great way to show that you are competent and serious about the service you provide.  For example, if you fix my gutters (or whichever service…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Allan Dubon's discussion Are clients calling you?
"Great suggestions, Pete.  I especially like the idea of the thank you cards and the earning the right to ask for a referral.  I would also add that it is important to do your best to accommodate dissatisfied customers and that if there are…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Allan Dubon's discussion Are clients calling you?
"Good old fashioned word of mouth has helped our company (a few friends and I), which was a little surprising at first, since with a company that makes websites for businesses, we were expecting online buzz.  This is a website we made for a…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Justin Ring's discussion Starting a business with pre-pay
"Justin, now that you mention it, it does make sense for a lawn service to offer prepaid services.  I also agree with you that, with maintenance services like lawn care, roof repair, or snow removal, reputation counts for a lot so it would be…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Justin Ring's discussion Starting a business with pre-pay
"I agree with several of the other posters that taking prepaid orders for a company that provides a service, not a physical product.  This is especially true when it is a seasonal service, like lawn care, pool care, or a snow company in Indiana.…"

Plasticine Porter replied to mikkel henderson's discussion hiring a commission only employee ?
"I have never hired a commission only employee, but I have worked as one.  Usually, I made very little money for the amount of time and effort I put into the work; I eventually stopped taking commission only gigs. I imagine that a commission…"

Plasticine Porter replied to Sam Burton's discussion Deciding on Products For Amazon Business
"I agree with Steven about starting with one well-researched product and then expanding your product line from there. Research would, of course, include the ROI you can get from selling the product and the popularity and seasonal nature of the…"
