Hiphopheads – this is for you!
I have an idea for a quiz app that tests how well you know hip-hop lyrics.
You have 30 seconds to answer each question and you can challenge your friends.
To illustrate my point, I made a quick and dirty mockup. Scroll down to test your hip hop-knowledge.
A late night back in 2011 I got caught up in the Chelsea Manning case.
(In case you haven’t followed it, Aclu.com has made a timeline of the case.)
In short, Chelsea Manning (formerly known as Bradley Manning) leaked nearly three-quarters of a million classified and sensitive military and diplomatic documents to Wikileaks in 2010. She was faced with 22 different charges – many under the espionage act and was facing up to 136 years in prison. But she wasn’t convicted of “aiding the enemy” which brought her sentence down to 35-years. But On May 17, Chelsea Manning was released from military prison after her sentence was commuted by former President Obama in his last week in office. She has been incarcerated for seven years — far less than the 35 years to which she was sentenced, but longer than any whistleblower in U.S. history..
Alright, so you got a business idea – and it’s genius!
Here’s what I think you should do from here:
- Find out if anyone has already thought about you idea
- When you idea comes to life, will you be your own customer?
- Do you have an edge?
- Who do you build the company with?
- Do you know how you will generate revenue?
- Get feedback from experienced people
Here’s what I think you should do now!
(A lot of entrepreneurs will say that the idea itself isn’t worth much – and what matters is the team, the execution, and the grind.
While that makes a lot of sense, I think it’s critical to not to undermine the importance of the idea and the problem you want to solve, because the idea and the problem you want to solve, should be what brought you and your team together.
Your team should have a common understanding of the problem, your solution to it and a trust in the execution of it.)
I recently got into tattoos.
And my past two years has involved a lot of traveling and searching for local tattoo shops in new cities.
In Copenhagen, I found Adam Peoples, Johnny Rhodes & Kasper Libvarth. In Moscow, I found Ruslan Tsvetnov which might be my favorite tattoo artist and in Oslo I got tattooed by Tony Nilsson, owner of Blue Arms Tattoo. If you visit Copenhagen, Oslo or Moscow, make sure to pay them a visit. Their work is amazing.
Before visiting a new city, I’m always curious to see what kind of tattoo artists and styles are there beforehand.
My profession as an online marketer, allows me to search the web more efficient than the average tattoo-enthusiast, yet, I’m still having a hard time finding a good tattoo artist as a tourist in a new city – which is why I’m writing this guide – to speed up the process for you.
The primary tools and websites I use to find tattoo artists are Google, Instagram, Reddit, Yelp and Foursquare.
