I just saw this movie tonight and it got me interesting in finding gaps in the market or niche markets..
What is the best way to go about doing this? It doesn't have to be anything on a huge scale like the guys in this movie, but how to find things you would never think of? It never crossed my mind until I saw the movie that the US government was asking people to supply them with weapons, you just assume they would source it all themselves.
So what are some good ways to identify potential niche market opportunities?
>>1459888 Look at the back end, like manufacturing (closer to raw materials the better) and waste disposal.
The media never talks much about trivial parts alloy die cast zippers, but you look at a high end sports coat or a cheap pair of pants and they gotten, so somebody got paid to make'em and ship'em. You dig and you find you can go into a universe of rabbit holes my friend. Like the good old soda can patent wars, make tech companies like Apple look nice.

>>1459888 so trips, there is really no niche that isn't filled or that won't be filled. if you manage to find one and start a business in it you will have to pay your dues to much richer people ( jews ) or else they will destroy you and your company through various methods.
my advice is either be part of the system >inb4 conspiracy nut or do what >>1460273 said, look for endeavours dealing with more raw material rather than finite... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Does anyone here have any experience with rental properties, house flipping, or being a landlord? I'm looking down the road at my career and saving my money now because this is a path I feel I really want to go down.
Pic somewhat related. I feel like creating this type of aesthetic allows you to mark up rentals or houses for sale really high compared to what it actually costs to achieve this type of look. A goal of mine someday is to buy an old building and turn it into luxury loft-style apartments. It seems like people will pay a premium for exposed brick, exposed... Comment too long.

nah converted lofts are always located downtown, you can't find any cool old industrial buildings elsewhere no one with any money to afford that wants to live downtown, gentrification is a media lie and white flight is still in full effect that's why i was surprised to find all these lofts cost roughly the same or less than typical apartments in the surrounding suburbs
Tell me how to get rich quick. Or at least make a living wage with a low time commitment. I am willing to do anything except break the law. I will scam, I will swindle, I will debase myself, I will do anything. Have 1000 bucks startup. I feel scammed by college and I need to break free of this prison. I am open to any and all suggestions. I will do anything for money.
>>1459862 No those things are not illegal if you find the right loopholes, which people do all the time, you don't know what you're talking about. Also, judging by your post, you seem like a dickhead who needs to insult strangers on the internet to feel good, so I can bet more people value me than you.
Rate my idea: Kiosks/Stands in busy malls and high streets, that allow people to drop shopping off at the stand and have it delivered WHERE they want, WHEN they want. Selling on the basis of "Buy now, deliver later" (for example, people who have busy schedules can buy what they want early in the day, drop it with us, then have it delivered on demand). You could even sign contracts with small shops in the area and give them a delivery service (once you get a decent fleet of drivers), you can take like 10% of a sale from the small shop and then get the money...

>>1459808 You can expand and end up having like 20 kiosks is 20 locations, each one building a network of businesses whom you deliver for. If someone buys something and wants it gift wrapped and sent to a friends house (for a birthday or something), that can also be done.
If someone wants to have a meal, delivered fresh to his office when it's his lunch time, he can have that done.
If it gets big enough you can expand to digital on demand services, and potentially sign contracts with even bigger shops,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /biz/ I have been considering investing my money in obligations. This morning a guy from my bank called me and asked if I wanted to do something with my money. I have zero experience with buying obligations and such and I'm just 20 years old. Should I just let him invest for me or will i get ripped? Btw I'm from Denmark so it's not like the bank guy is super corrupt but I'm still suspicious
If you don't understand it, don't buy it. That's a good rule for investing.
If I understand correctly he's suggesting you buy 'Bonds'. And without looking it up, if I remember correctly interest rates on Bonds are pretty shit in Northern European countries at the moment, you may make slightly more than a term-deposit though so you'd be better off.
Shop around. See what other banks are offering -- I mean if they are government bonds they'll be the same. But see what it compares to what you're earning on your savings at the moment.
>>1459878 So government bonds are fine here now? or are they the same always? >>1459883 Is it something I can just learn? I'm afraid I'll screw it up. He's probably very good at bonds and things like that but I'm sure he will also charge me for his help
Anyone got any ideas of how I can use my Facebook page for profit? I have a large page (not that big, but big for the area, I live in a small country town). It has over 6,000 fans all from the area so I know that all these fans aren't far away. Any ideas to what I can do to make money from it? I guess I could open a restaurant or something and immediately have a large advertisement platform from the area, but I don't really have the bank to do that....
What stops people from buying into dips of stocks and selling after their inevitable rebound?Doing this in whatever time frame necessary to get your money back or at least break even minimizes your risk of loss and you'll at least make something right?
you going to buy every single one? as the stock continues to plummet not only do you have to buy the dip, you have to double down, triple down to ever even hope to make money cause RARELY does a stock rebound to prefirst dip prices atleast in the short term
Protip: Peter Schiff's dad got sent to the slammer for not refusing to pay federal income tax. Statutes and regulations mean fuckall. The big dick of the IRS will continue to stretch the ass of our bank accounts until we see a full scale revolution. But I dont think there will ever be a country on the face of this earth that doesn't have an income tax ever again.
You're pretty much good if you shield your assets from the IRS and offer full payment on conditions if you receive a notice from them. The conditions being they provide evidence that you are liable for income tax. In the index of the IRC it lists liability for taxes and income is not one of them.

Hello /biz/ Yes, another book recommendation thread. But, I'm hoping we can narrow the scope to books promoting personal management as well as management theories in the work environment.
Most of the book topics I've seen on here are about building financial knowledge and wealth, but I'm looking more for books about building knowledge on topics such as emotional intelligence, time management, communication techniques etc.
Clear as mud? Hopefully my narrative makes sense! Cheers.
>>1459715 Not trying to dissuade anyone from reading books, but I think for the kind of stuff you're talking about the best practice is... well to practice.
I actually would suggest for the emotional intelligence and communication stuff, take up an acting class for a couple of months. It'll help you work on your body language, your diction and vocal projection, but also one thing they teach you in acting is how to really analyze language, and play with something. You can take the same sentence, the same words... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Let's say you got this really slacker employee. You suspect he might be using drugs, so you run a drug test on your entire staff.
The slacker tests positive for weed and is subsequently dealt with, but at the same time your most model employee tests positive for all kinds of nasty things. Amphetamine, cocaine, the lot. There's never been a single issue with this guy, he's always on time and does his job correctly the first time, but he clearly has a habit of partying hard when he's off duty.

I just started learning html CSS and about to start Java, anyways I was wondering if anyone here makes money from either creating niche sites or buying pre existing sites. Former: how long till income was worth the effort? Did you use a template? What are some marketing strategies you used?. Or did you just build it and sell it? If you bought a pre existing, how fast did you make your investment back? How much work a week did you put in? Anyone want to toss in their .02?

I'll be entering my fourth year in psychology in two weeks. I work part-time in a child care service, but I really want to quit that job, since I don't like kids (I worked there for the money). I'll be getting a consulting hypnotist license in november, so I will start something with that in 2017. In the meantime, should I stick with my curent job (working with kids), or do you guys have better ideas? I live in Canada btw.
>>1459518 >Earning money with a psych degree Nope, you're fucked. Not even joking. What were you thinking? Because it sounds like you weren't.
The only hope you have is to either be brilliant at it and hope someone notices or to apply your understanding of the human mind in a creative and unique way that hasn't been done to death before. Is that what you're hoping to find here?
>>1459518 Let me give you some home kid.. Psych degree. I work as a CFP make a good living.. Got the interview for a financial rep.. They loved me for my social skills and even said they were looking for psych degree people because "I knew the mind"
It's official /biz/, I'm graduating with my associate's next semester! Worked hard to pay for school, have no debt, have a car, and will now have a 2 year degree. Working as an assistant manager at albertsons atm, but at 21 I think I'm doing fine.
Next step is part-timing my bachelor's for the next 3 year in order to build work experience and get my degree.
Just out of curiosity, with a bachelor's in business and 5 years of lower management experience (if everything goes well), will I be a significant candidate in mid-management applications?
>>1459470 when you say mid-management do you mean department head? GM? DM? Shift manager at Pizza Hut?
Either way your experience is probably going to weigh more than your degree. Do well, get promoted, learn your job. It's easiest to get hired doing something you've already done.
If I need a GM I look for people that have run stores before. I'm not going to promote some assistant that never made manager. Or if I do I'm going to promote them from within so I know what I'm getting.
>>1459481 GM and DM are basically my goals. I don't have extremely high aspirations, a bachelor's degree should be enough in my life to end up in mid-level management. Middle management, in my opinion at least, is like an operations or district manager, or a manager of a specific head that's higher than your run of the mill store manager, such as an HR or marketing manager.
Like I said before, I don't have extremely high aspirations, once I'm done with my bachelor's I plan on being done period. 6 years of school is enough, I've been working full time throughout all of it. If anything I'll just raise my way through the ranks of respectable businesses. I may never reach the executive level, but if I end up making anything north of 90k a year I'll be satisfied.
Main question is, especially for you managers or business owners out there, is 5 years of lower management (assistant manager and possibly store manager if I'm lucky) and a bachelor's in business enough to wiggle my way into mid-level district manager positions. At what point, rather, should I start applying for these positions with confidence of getting hired?
>>1459540 There's too many variables to say. A lot of it will depend on the company and the industry you work in.
one thing you control is your performance. If you consistently make your boss tons of money without doing anything shady there's always potential for advancement. Lots of people spend their entire career as GM's though. Doing good work but nothing spectacular.

Do: It's time for you to make some soul searching. Sit down and list what do you want to do in your life. List your skills and passions. What would you do if money wasn't an issue. Try to find out how you can make money living like that.

Is it worth getting a bachelor's in business if my end goal is an MBA? Can I just go with my passion for my bachelor's and then get my MBA straight from there? I feel like it might be a safer route as well, in case I find something other than business, and I can always fall back on the MBA.
>>1459285 Depends on the passion and how many loans you are willing to take. MBAs are expensive as fuck. But yes, for the most part, any Bachelors lets you go into any Masters (though some business coursework will help you look better on applications).
Can I get a business related job with a BS in Geology? The mining and O&G industries are in the pits, and I just graduated. Can a jabronie like myself be able to sell himself and get an analytics/BI job?
