"Hey Evan! I have been watching your videos for a while now. Hope you enjoyed your trip to Asia! I am enthusiastic about entrepreneur videos. I have searched on Youtube and Google and I always get videos/articles about what to do. I believe knowing what NOT to do is equally important. Usually, all I get is generic tips such as "dont grow too fast" but there are no concrete case studies. But when it comes to successful stories, there are specific examples we can learn from. I was thinking if maybe you can have videos/articles analysing and explaining how some real businesses failed, especially start ups. It would be great if you can use your influence to encourage entrepreneurs who have failed to share their stories with you. That way, the mistake will only be made by once because we all will have learnt from it Hopefully you'll consider my suggestion"

More than 3 years later, this video is still so relevant! Perhaps even more relevant as people see the dangers of relying solely on an employer. I love the don't-hold-yourself-back-because-you-haven't-made-the-perfect-plan part 'cos that's something I need to work on. To have someone being so upfront and clear about it is very motivating. Thank you!
Exactly! You can create a Facebook page for example. Don't wait for a website to start. Take action right away and grow your network and then work on your website. For example, take a look at evancarmichael.com - It's still a landing page and Evan hates it, but it makes him work harder whenever he looks at it. :) #Believe #BTA1039 Luka
+Evan Carmichael what I meant is for example, you don't need a website to start, which is really hard nowadays, but I think what you meant is we shouldn't wait until we have a website, we need to start and arrange to build a website in the meantime, not wait and do nothing. Right?
well well well said sir, thanks for share your experiences. i like this video.
and as you said we don't do alone.
sir we are going to start our own software company. even we have well plan too. and we learning new trends also which is required for this field.
please sir suggest me about the soft company. because you already run the company. i am waiting for your positive response.
Hey there, thank you for your question. The best way to reach Evan directly for Q&A is on one of his live streams. The next one is on next Thursday at 12:30pm EST, here is the link to it: https://www.youtube.com/user/ModelingTheMasters/videos?view=2&live_view=502&view_as=subscriber&shelf_id=13&sort=dd Much love! #BelieveNation #BTA1023 Luka
I partially agree with 3. I think the big thing is spending money on the wrong stuff. You should buy things that make money i.e. the ingredients of your products. For me soaping oils.
If it doesn't make me money why should I buy it? Is my slogan on spending money.
You know what? Honestly this is really good advice I think this was a great video dude if you actually let it sink in and you process what he's getting at rather than jump off the boat about what he says then this is actually really good, well said I enjoyed the video

Everyone keeps trying to tell me I don't have a plan but I do.. I want to have my own business and idc what its is from a small store to a restaurant or a big company, I just wanna have something that I can call my own and it seems like no one gets that and it's so frustrating
+Evan Carmichael yeah I'd rather believe those whom I know went through it like you Evan, rather than those who just keeps on pointing out what they think is wrong when they cant lay out proof why so.. Thanks for your reply!
I Have a business idea that I know I cant do on my own
I am looking for a Co-founder
I feel it's a multi million dollar idea
That will help Creators
I have been Trying to Talk to Casey Neistat , because he says that is exactly what he is wanting to do is Help Creators
But I dont know how to contact Him
Any idea's on Who contact?
It's a Tech Type idea
And it's way above something I could do by myself
In fact I feel like I only see this idea
From my angle Because I'm not very Techie.
+Evan Carmichael thank you Very Much for your reply, anyway you would be willing to spend 5 minutes on the phone, to hear about an idea?
It has to do with Vlogging
And something I think would be the Number 1 selling thing this Christmas
If it was possible to be available by then.
But i just want to run it by someone
That's more knowledgeable in this area
Because I am Not, i have never done a Vlog in my life , so I'm sure you and everyone are thinking right away huh how can a guy think he has a great idea about something he knows nothing about right ?
Well i think you had to see it from an angle of someone like Me
A super smart engineer or a pro in the vlogging Area wouldn't have thought of such a Dumbed down idea imo.
So far everything and everyone i hear these advices and the main thing everyone says is "dont do it for the money , do what you love, have a passion and do that" so i actually don't have a passion in any subject at all i sit and think and theres NOTHING in this world that i can get paid to do and be happy doing it... so basically it means i shouldnt try to make business just keep beimg an employee not the employer?

I can relate to so many things in this video. I held off waiting to perfect my business plan, once I just jumped in it is constantly changing. Money isn't great right now but I'm pushing through. As for web site, It was the center of my business. But there are so many free sites out there now which were not there when this video was created. Take it from someone who has started and is moving forward, a lot of what Evan says here is spot on. Thanks for the motivation without blowing smoke up our &^$$.
You forgot the golden rule......successful people are psychological obsessed with what they do and achieve......they have no friends..every second of everyday is important to them...they don.t drink or go partying...There business is there world and focus and drive rules them...
The first tip was great, except I started to question everything. 😂 I thought, well, I wanna do this because I love it and I feel like it could be something different and new. But then I thought, am I just in it for money? Because I like money? But who doesn’t? Oof.
Great Advice Evan! I really appreciate this video :) I felt like if I didn't have the "PERFECT PLAN" then nobody would take me seriously. Do you have advice on how to create a plan in the beginning that doesnt hold you back from getting started but also can help get investors?
Hey Evan, I'm looking forward towards starting up a video game company in the near future and making video games for people to enjoy playing. The thing is that right now, I just rethinked about my life after going to a community college for about two years for biology, and realized that I wanted to own a business someday and make video games because I do enjoy playing games on my PS4 and PC, so I was like, why didn't I go for this sooner? So I have found a good university in Florida that gave me hope as I just got accepted, and start learning how to do 2D-3D design and how to make video games as I have no prior knowledge of how to make one as of now.
The other problem as of right now is that I was just recently laid off from my most recent job, and now I'm just left with little money in my bank account.
And when I do go for the degree, I was thinking about either wanting to start up a business right away and may have some money, or should I just go look for work at a place with my degree for a while until I make enough money, and start up my game business?
I'll be looking forward towards your suggestions and reply. 🙂
Oh and I've left a sub on the table for you because you've earned it!

You forget sonething...for 300 dollar p month i would be on the street..and i do not have the support of a partner. So its very hard to start on hardly any income..basic costs privately are 1200 euro a month minimum..
Welfare will not give me money for starting a business. Jobsare not available either (55yrs)..
No one wants to help me for 20 years..or they took away my idea and did it for themselves and dropped me...i am dried out of ideas now...
Thank you for your tips..

You're the only dude I've ever heard speaking about business saying "you don't need a website"... Isn't that one of the basics? :) I couldn't disagree more, but everything else and all your other videos are amazing. Thank you!
Although foreigners may now invest in A-shares, there is a monthly 20 percent limit on repatriation of funds to foreign countries.
Performance of A-shares.
Since its inception in 1990, including a major reform in 2002, the index has seen great fluctuations. Overall, however, it has grown along with the Chinese economy. The years 2015 to 2016 were a particularly difficult period, with a 52-week performance of -21.55 percent as of July 20, 2016.
As China grows from an emerging market to an advanced economy, there is substantial demand for Chinese equity. Stock exchange regulators continue efforts to make A-shares more broadly available to foreign investors and have them recognized by the global investing community.
In June 2017, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index announced a long-awaited decision it would add stocks to its index. According to CNBC, MSCI will add 222 China A Large Cap stocks to its benchmark emerging markets index gradually beginning in 2018. The MSCI website reveals the stocks it will list include the Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Guotai Junan, Ping An Insurance, according to a document on Tsingtao Brewery, SAIC Motor, Suning Commerce and Spring Airlines.
Current Dividend Preference.
Participating Preferred Stock.
Convertible Preferred Stock.
Cumulative preferred stock includes a provision that requires the company to pay preferred shareholders all dividends, including those that were omitted in the past, before the common shareholders are able to receive their dividend payments.
Non-cumulative preferred stock does not issue any omitted or unpaid dividends. If the company chooses not to pay dividends in any given year, the shareholders of the non-cumulative preferred stock have no right or power to claim such forgone dividends at any time in the future.
Participating preferred stock provides its shareholders with the right to be paid dividends in an amount equal to the generally specified rate of preferred dividends, plus an additional dividend based on a predetermined condition. This additional dividend is typically designed to be paid out only if the amount of dividends received by common shareholders is greater than a predetermined per-share amount. If the company is liquidated, participating preferred shareholders may also have the right to be paid back the purchasing price of the stock as well as a pro-rata share of remaining proceeds received by common shareholders.
