Just got my FoundersCard today. FoundersCard is a new program that gives entrepreneurs some love via discounts from top tier brands. (If you're an entrepreneur and you want to apply, you can use my charter member discount code to cut the $795/yr membership fee down (a guaranteed rate for life of $395/yr). Click here, then hit the "apply now" button and use my discount promo code "FCDANI404" in the referral section to get the rate.
Having come from the corporate world 10 years ago, where everyone is telling you what a star you are, I can definitely say that being an entrepreneur can be lonely. Not lonely in a bad way at all, but in a "you have to pat yourself on the back" way because until you get some traction, there won't be anyone else around you that's as passionate about what you're doing as you are. So it's nice to have a group like this one that's "got your back" as an entrepreneur.
I am digging my new card too. This card combined with my American Express and Red Butler Card is the ultimate trinity! Boom!

I get people all the time who tell me they'd like to be entrepreneurs. Often they have this wistful look in their eyes, as if to say "I would but..." and the "but" is often the list of obligations that is keeping them from doing it. Family. Mortgage. Kids. Job. Etc.
I've devised a litmus test to help those people, and anyone else, figure out if they really do have what it takes to be an entrepreneur. It's easy, costs $100 or less, and you can do it in one afternoon. Think of it as being an entrepreneur with no strings attached; no long-term obligations. You'll find after this experience that you're hooked and you love it, and you want more of it, or that being an entrepreneur isn't for you.
So here's the litmus test: Go to Costco (if you don't have a membership, a friend surely does) and buy one of their discount ticket packs. You can find these for restaurants, museums, ski lift tickets, movie tickets, football games, golf courses, spas, and gyms. Pick the one you're most familiar with. Then, go out and sell them for more than you bought them for, and see how much margin you can make. It's that easy.
In fact, it doesn't even really matter if you only make a few dollars doing this - it's the experience of buying the items at one price, then selling them for more, dealing with inventory, convincing people to buy what you have to sell, etc. that matters.
Here are a few examples & ways you could do it:
