This week in bfx thinks about his future and how to side-hustle!

I keep turning a business idea around in my head. I think I could make it work, but it would take a lot of hustle and finding somebody better at marketing and graphic design than I am. Operationally, I could do it right now with ~$2,000 investment for start-up which is...maybe fine?

Also looking into taking a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course and getting that certification, which would be a big jump forward professionally.

I keep turning a business idea around in my head. According to Quicken it's already cost me $20k. I hope I can make it work - but ye gods I don't wanna do 26 credits in my spare time ever again. On the plus side, I got like a 3.8 GPA (not that anyone will ever care). Also just booked a trip to IMTS in Chicago to help determine how many hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of machine tools I will eventually need to buy.

I think Hubski(well, at least me) can get together an extremely large investment of... moral support, for the small return of some pictures and stories

3.95 at one of the schools. The other one marked me down for not being there the whole time 'cuz I was busy doing other college.

Oh wow, IMTS seems awesome. There are going to be so many shiny toys at that show, should be a good way to meet some vendors!

I've talked to four of them in the past week. They've all been "You should go to IMTS. We only do it every two years and all the shops I would send you to to see our stuff are locked down and proprietary."

I think I'll have about enough time to walk halls until I'm exhausted, eat room service, start again in the morning and hop on a plane but thanks.

How much design? Up front or ongoing?
