Your failed attempts. I tried to make a dog gift box subscription site like www.barkbox.com

Completely failed. Lost about 5k, but the extra stock was helpful in getting stealths up and running.

I realized that all my efforts in playing stealth for the last 4 years was worthless, I could have put all my money in bitcoin in 2009 and at the end become a multi-millionaire by just working at mcdonalds for 8 years until everything went all the way up last year.

Brother begged I help him with his second last failure.

He was flogging off spare parts of the Asian variety. He wanted them BAGGED.

I spent hours sewing bags, breaking sewing machine needles,and he did not even sell enough to pay me.

I wanted another lot of cryptos.... he did not bite

There will be a next time.

So what's the 2009 version of bitcoin in 2018? VR Chat? Short the Euro until it collapses?

What's an investment option where the vast majority claim it will go nowhere in future?

When I first started my side consultant business, I went and bid on large contracts that I would not win - lost quite a bit of money in the process of travelling, hiring tech and graphic design help, etc.

The FBA removal has been "processing" for 7 months!

Thats like $5000 sitting lost somewhere in a warehouse. I've had at least 30 cases over this timeframe and a dozen phone calls. Amazon FBA is ****ED!

It is good for high volume new items. But that is it. One offs are not worth it

I think I have failed at everything I have ever been successful at. The best education you can get is learning from your failures.

You should keep an eye on 888lots.com because there's a good chance your "lost" inventory will end up for sale there.

The cryptocurrency war is over and Bitcoin had already won. I think in the near future we will see Bitcoin getting scrapped and replaced by tokens such as Ripple, these tokens will be used by banks as a feature from the future that will make them even more profits.

Bitcoin had not been regulated from the beginning and the big players really do hate it > expect major crackdowns to follow in the next few months.


I personally think that people who invested in Bitcoin when it sold for pennies are the luckiest people that ever walked the surface of this planet.

I personally think there is no more money to made off Bitcoin, the game is simply over.

Amazon has a special paragraph in their terms of service which reads something like this:

"If we detect that you are doing something illegal on Amazon (i.e: fraud), we might forfeit your money indefinitely"


Seems like they're kicking a lot of sellers and keeping both their money and inventory.

Same.

Im a bit of a basketball nut and always loved this quote:

I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. - Michael Jordan

Ive lost shops and failed meeting my own expectations but I kept on going and Im still in the game because I didnt let the losses define me.

I failed miserably at being a male prostitute.

Apparently they expect you to be good looking and in shape.
