I avoided it until now, but then I went into a business that is essential retail, and right next to a Covid testing site. The only way I could have been more exposed over the last few weeks is if I had opened a testing site myself. G-d has a wonderful sense of humor.

The irony! Hatzlacha on the new business.

Is it time for a master list of DDF businesses that can be used to advertise and support?

That will be great until you get to the Amazon sellers who will decapitate you if you reveal what they are selling

Many products have a very low barrier to entry...

People are petrified others will start selling the same product. I understand the secrecy, but sometimes it's really funny how crazy people get about it. I used to work for a company writing listings for sellers, and people would make us sign NDAs and whatnot, the funny thing was that the more secretive you are the more likely you were selling a product I myself had already written 10 listings for.

Always found it interesting that Chinese sellers are banging down our door to advertise their products on Amazon, but haven't seen nearly as much from Jewish sellers.

The Chinese need to get their garbage ranked on Amazon asap at all costs, itíll never sell itself based on its merits. Some of the stuff I got for free was such poor quality that I got tired of getting such garbage for free.

The quality of the Jewish sellers (Chinese vs. Jewish probably isnít the right way to classify them) is a few rungs higher and the promoting is only to accelerate that which could happen organically by competing on price and waiting it out.

If it's being given away for free, then it's not a surprise that it's junk.

Obviously, the business owner would have to ask to be put on the list, the question is who do we add and what is the right amount of info?

Most overweight people have never tried...
What are you talking about? Do you know how many overweight people successfully installed and use treadmills to hang clothes on?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

R"S!

Unfortunately, as a wise man once said,
"Oh there ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
There ain't nothing in this world for free
Oh no, I can't slow down, I can't hold back
Though you know, I wish I could
Oh no there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good"

All my employees are positive, too, so we're working without being open to the public.
