TMBA 135 (LBP118) – 5 No-Time Products And Questions From The Silent Majority

LBP Episode 118

Dan and Ian spent the past week working diligently to poll the LBP audience and find the deepest darkest unasked listener questions.

Or they sent a Tweet before the show started.

We leave it up to you to decide what really happened.

Either way, they ended up with some great questions and requests for advice from the LBP community, many of which were from listeners they’d never heard from before. Which made Dan grin, cause he loves you silent majority folks.

Listener Questions

    • From Maciej Godlewski – You guys rock and have inspired me to take my future into my own hands. As a thank you, I think I came across an NPR podcast, Planet Money. They recently did a story on setting up offshore corporations 

    • From Joel Broek – Long time listener here and part of the silent majority! My dad owns Providence Video Productions and back like 5-10 years ago he was absolutely killing it but is having a tough time transitioning to current technology and adapting to his market.  How do older businesses adapt to current market needs.
    • From Joseph Feliciano – Design and its effect on income. Does it effect postevely and or negatively in business? Can it make a huge impact on your business?


    • From Chris Trynkiewicz – Any tips for being a pioneer in a niche or with a brand new type of product, other than don’t do it?


Listener Feedback
    • From Gal – About 6 months ago I got interested in making a living online. Way back then (it seems like long ago) I read your posts, and just didn’t get them. I choose to follow other bloggers who make earning money online sound much easier, and did 2 things (one great, one dumb):
      • Great: I got my hands dirty and opened a website (
      • Dumb: I paid zero attention to any true business principle

  • Ian’s Hipster Hack – Hemp Hearts
  • JayZ – Thank You

  • When I listened to the planet money off shore podcast a few weeks ago I immediately thought of the LBP! Love the podcast and keep up the great work.

    #1 sign you’re a hipster: bashing other hipsters :)

    On a serious note, it’s great to hear that you have so much confidence in the viability of classified sites. I’m about 50% done with creating my niche directory/classified site. I don’t anticipate it to be a big money maker and I’m mostly doing it so that I can teach myself Ruby on Rails. But who knows, if I dominate the space it could be a nice source of passive income.

  • heard about the earthquake in philippines today. hope you all are ok.

  • Great episode, lots of interesting links to check out! Thanks for answering my question too. By now you should know where I’m coming from :)

    On a side note OMG you’re on Zune? Wow, you showed some dedication tackling the submission process! Worst app EVER.

  • Dan

    OMG WE ARE ON ZUNE!!!??? What is happening…

  • Dan

    All okay!

  • Dan

    I was making fun of hipsters before there were… oh damn.

    Love to see the results when they are up!

  • Dan

    :D !!!

  • Ian

    …Frank you might be onto something.

  • CraigJ

    Did you guys once mention a kindle/torrent site that you thought was pretty good for free books? I think I heard it on the LBP. Thanks

  • Thanks for the link gents. Chiang Mai is a very unique city in my opinion. If you stay there for any period of time you quickly start to meet all the longer term expats and travelers and you bump into people you know all the time. It’s a big city with all the amenities, including a big airport, yet it’s still small enough to get to know people.
