So, since I hit a 'I'm going to be thirty and want to have done at least something with my life' Phase. Or maybe i'm unfulfilled anyway. I have for the past 2 months been reading and researching online marketing strategy, Business strategy and 'networking' however the majority of these people I believe are singularly minded, money and influence.

My rather digressive and long winded question is where should i be focussing my efforts to be able speak candidly about business and start-ups? I am probably going to have somebody tell me that my idea is garbage but thats part and parcel. Don't be afraid to fail etc.

Best plaes to network for people who are likeminded or have the skills I don't possess where we can team up and brainstorm? I have minimal knowledge of business so i'm undoubtedly naive.

@Dchhinsley Here would be the best place to start.

Ask lots of questions and see where that leads you.

Reddit for startup and entrepreneurial discussions. Inbound.org for more marketing focused stuff. And, here, of course. I am happy to share what I know and could benefit from wider input. It is important to get diverse opinions to avoid tunnel vision.

To quote the detective in the rumpled trench coat, "Just one more thing..."

There is a paid section of this forum called The Classroom where you can get direct access to a number of top experts who provide greater depth in answers and support. Worth a look.

I don't want to meet people who are like-minded as I am.

I want to meet people with a different perspective who will challenge me to think differently or know for sure why I am sticking to my guns.

That's absolutely a great point Bill. Well I will investigate this student membership and way up if it is worth the investment.
Thank you all for the info. I'm literally looking for somebody to sit down and say that sounds like a terrible on demand service proposal.

@Dchhinsley I always believe if someone thinks something is a good idea then a lot of other people will too.

@Dchhinsley

We'd love to have you in the classroom.

People say they want feedback, but what they really want is for people to say nice things to them.

I will tell you what I think AND why I think the way I do ... as will the other teachers.

Opinions without data are just opinions. We know why we think what we think.

See you in the classroom? <= Click
