Find Roommates You Want to Live With

Alrighty folks, I’ve started my crowd funding campaign for my business.

Feel free to contribute to it; any contribution matters, no matter how small. There are a variety of perks to contributing to the campaign, such as getting an awesome shirt designed by me!

If you don’t know, my business centers around using a few different aspects of psychological and personality tendencies to help roommates (especially college-aged folks) find roommates they don’t want to kill on a daily, or weekly, basis. 

I can’t promise monthly yet.

Here is our preliminary site:  http://www.seeroommatcha.com/

Our crowd funding page: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/roommatcha/x/4719671

Any suggestions for tee shirts and other wear are greatly appreciated! I will soon post pictures of the various tee shirt designs. In the meantime, feel free to take some (free) tests, send us your results, and get free stuff!

Who doesn’t like free stuff?!

Mwahaha

My plans are gradually becoming more solidified – MWAHAHAHAHA – HAHAHA- HA *cough* HAHA HA HAAAAA!

No, you don’t understand. I create plans all the time, but they are never solid – well, nearly never. ‘Tis the plight of the ENTP. The general plan is:

1. Kick off business while I am in college

2. Make a few hundred thousand dollars

3. Avoid student loans if possible

4. Graduate with a degree in entrepreneurship (or maybe get into marketing – I have to say, I kind of idealize Mad Men)

5. Continue business; become a millionaire

6. Start a few more businesses; become a supermillionaire 

7. Pursue music to my heart’s content/donate to as many worthy music programs as possible

8. Become a conductor

9. Delve into metaphysics

10. Become a teacher

11. Go to school for the rest of my life

As Per Usual

I have developed my grand ideas further, and I’d like to see them to fruition within the next year.

As I’ve progressed speedily through college (as I did high school) I am finding I am not satisfied intellectually or creatively. Sure, I’ve had some creative projects to take on and some extremely intellectually-challenging activities to tackle; somehow, I am never satiated. Perhaps this is because I am innovative. Perhaps this is because I am insane. Either way, my brain is gradually melting out of my ears from general boredom.

It’s for these reasons that I’m becoming more convinced that working for myself is ideal. I can control how difficult my projects are and how long the incubation period is. I can be as off-the-wall as I’d like; the only caveat is for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, so I must be as equally clever in figuring out how to market what is essentially manifested genius insanity. It is hard to market something completely new, but I’d like to figure out how. I have a few ideas in mind that will set me up for productivity.

  • Work space. I firmly believe that if you surround yourself with that which will make you motivated to be successful, you will ultimately be successful. As a rather visual person what I see drives my actions, whether I see it with my mind’s eye or my actual corporeal eye. If I have my Xbox in front of me, I am inspired to kick some ass on Assassin’s Creed. If I have a book on entrepreneurship in front of me, I am inspired to rise to the top. I tend to get caught in grand ideas and the information my environment provides often ends up in my Mind Factory so that it may be turned into a Great Big Plan. Thus, less clutter is ideal for me.
  • People. Despite what your ultimate goal is, surrounding yourself with the right people is critical. If you desire to be an engineer you probably shouldn’t collaborate with someone who thinks purely artistically, and vice versa. While such interactions have the potential to be beneficial (particularly if the person thinks similarly to you) they may only end up being one small piece of the puzzle. I find that it is key to find those that can drive you closer to your goal. Support appears vital, no matter how independent you are.
  • Wardrobe. Dress for what image you want to portray. Simple as that. I prefer a sharp, intellectual 50’s style when I’m not sporting band tees and aviators.
  • Idea board. I like pictures. I like things that motivate me. I like inspiration. Sometimes the most vital parts of my environment are pictures and phrases. When I am thinking a certain way, my actions naturally follow, pushing me towards whatever I am aspiring to be, or do. An idea board, or visualization board, is just like distraction – it is fun and makes you feel good. Whatever endeavor you are pursuing should not make you feel miserable – what’s the point to life then? The point of an idea board is to make you feel good about what you are doing, and what you will ultimately accomplish, so that you will actually meet your goal. Other people might just feel good about it too.
