How to make facial hair grow?
If your body were to grow beard, it would have done it anyhow naturally, and you would have had a fully grown, nice, big, bushy beard even before completing your teens.However, for those like me, less blessed in the matter of beards, and hence craving to grow a nice one to look sexually more appealing, I’ve the following suggestions.Firstly, don’t use beard oils. Mind it, these oils won't help you grow even a single new beard hair. Also, the claim by the manufacturers, of accelerated growth of existing beard hair, is a load of bullshit. I've used such an entire 50ml bottle of beard oil. I used it as directed on its package, i.e., twice daily on the face after a face wash.The bottle takes around 2 months to get over and within that duration of 2 months, I used to shave occasionally. After the bottle got over, I didn't shave for next 2 months, whereas, the package said only 1 month, to see a nice growth of new beard hair. But all that grew was a Chinese moustache and goatee, which was growing anyway even without using that oil.And oh yes, have a nice burst of ugly and very stubborn pimples instead of beard hair.Next, let’s discuss about shaving. I suggest don't shave yourself, go to a saloon instead. Ask them to use that razor in which they insert half cut blades, also tell them to shave really close and insist on using alum stone as an aftershave.Having said that, I don't suppose that the ultra modern saloons use that primitive razor or alum stone, so try desi saloons instead. Give this a try, a well experienced barber will give you a very close shave. You won’t get that by yourself, shaving with a so called modern razor. A close shave seems to help sprout more hair.I recommend you to observe the following 3–1 routine. Go for a shave to a saloon once a week for 3 months. Then do a progress check, i.e, let your beard grow for 1 month. If you are not satisfied, then again go for once a week shave for 3 months. Follow this 3–1 routine till you get proper amount of beard hair. Once you are satisfied you may let your beard grow as much as you wish.I’m following this routine and it seems to work for me. However, I don’t claim that it’ll work for everyone. Needless to say, it requires a lot of patience.Indulge in heavy exercises to boost your testosterone levels. This in turn will promote your beard growth.ALSO, you need to throw away any skin products containing turmeric. Turmeric is known to destroy hair right from the roots. That's why women in South apply turmeric powder paste to get rid of body hair. I wish I’d known this much earlier because I was a loyal user of Vicco turmeric face cream for more than 5 years. Now I’m cursing myself for using it.Consult a dermatologist for beard growth. He might wave a magic wand (don't take it literally!!).Finally, the following link seems promising too.

How can I get more people to fill out my survey?
Make it compellingQuickly and clearly make these points:Who you are and why you are doing thisHow long it takesWhats in it for me -- why should someone help you by completing the surveyExample: "Please spend 3 minutes helping me make it easier to learn Mathematics. Answer 8 short questions for my eternal gratitude and (optional) credit on my research findings. Thank you SO MUCH for helping."Make it convenientKeep it shortShow up at the right place and time -- when people have the time and inclination to help. For example, when students are planning their schedules. Reward participationOffer gift cards, eBooks, study tips, or some other incentive for helping.Test and refineTest out different offers and even different question wording and ordering to learn which has the best response rate, then send more invitations to the offer with the highest response rate.Reward referralsIf offering a reward, increase it for referrals. Include a custom invite link that tracks referrals.
How exactly can I get out of this comfort zone by motivating myself?
10 Ways to Get out of your comfort zone:Give more money than you feel comfortable with away tomorrow (amount is usually relative on your current situation)Answer a call from an unknown number. Even better if it's a debt collectorDo something others are waiting for someone else to do. Today at the post office, there was a long line. There was no one answering the door there to pick up packages. People would come in, ring the bell and wait. All of us in line knew they were wasting their time, but said nothing because we didn't want to look weird. I didn't say anything, so I failed at this because I didn't want to "stand out"Invite someone you don't know to meet for coffee (someone in your field). Don't stop at a no response, wait for someone to say No or the more common "My schedule is very busy, maybe another time."(A polite No)Talk to someone in an elevator. It's regularly NEVER done by 99% of people. You'll find most people are really pleasant, but no one wants to say the first word.If a waiter or barista or anyone messes up something today (work included). Don't "be nice" and let it go. That's back talk for "not wanting to make waves." Be polite and ask them to correct the mishap. My wife, infant and I were out at a restaurant and a waiter hadn't greeted us to start for over 10 minutes. My inners were saying, "Oh, don't worry someone will notice you, just sit tight." That's your inner back talk "wimp" voice. So, I got up, went to the manager and told him (politely) to have a waiter sent over immediately. They offered us a free appetizer for the mishap.Every person you walk past today, give a smile and "hello." Most people wait for the other person and then it just looks sad as 2 glum faces make eye contact. We don't want to look too "eager" or "weird." Do it, most will return it.As Matt said, ask for a discount somewhere. It doesn't have to be Starbucks. I just had a late fee on a credit card. My inners are telling me, "you deserve it, just let it go." I swallowed, dialed the bank, asked them to remove the late fee, and they did. Ask and you shall receive.At any point in the day you realize you haven't exercised at all (typically when you're in a lazy position) immediately get up and do a set of 25 pushups. It's hard. I'll couple this willpower exercise with getting up right when the alarm goes off. Immediately. Not even 10 seconds later. Right away. It's this same muscle that pushes you that builds new habits.Write a FB status about a failure you've had, or a personal story about struggle (without the "feel sorry for me" feel to it). When no one comments, celebrate the rejection. I once posted a status about one of my most embarrassing moments in my life on FB (from HS, I was in a talent show, everyone was looking forward to our band playing, I couldn't hear myself over the drums, I knew I sounded terrible based on the looks in the crowd, so I faked a cough to get off stage). NO ONE commented on FB. Awkward.
What is the best treatment for hair loss?
Propecia. I started using it 12 years ago when I saw my scalp starting to peek out underneath my hair, and it stopped my balding in its tracks. Lucky for me it was invented right around the time I started to go bald. I've still got a full head of hair and I'm quickly closing in on 40.
I have an awesome app/website idea which may get more than a billion users. But I don't have required money and coding skills. I tried crowd-funding but didn't help. What should I do?
Many of the answerers seem to think that your question is improper or inherently wrong-headed. I don't think so at all. I was co-founder of two startups and am now an angel investor (and software developer), so I do have some experience with these things.In reply to Catalin Braescu: It is really true that the best developers are 10x more productive than average developers. I understand that the term "rock star" is hyperbolic and I assume you meant it that way. There's nothing "quasi-fascist" about this whatsoever, if Catalin is referring to Nietzshe's "Ubermensch" concept, it's a very bad analogy. I'll use the term "A+ programmer" instead of "rock star".Also in reply to Catalin: If you came up with the idea and cause the starup to come into existence, of course you'll get significant equity. And the idea that 10% is insignificant or insulting is totally wrong. Regarding "There are no self-appointed rockstar developers", well, you didn't say anything about "self-appointed". Sure there are people like what Catalin describes, but the great majority of A+ programmers aren't like that stereotype. The technical side is not "so unimportant", it's crucial, in fact, but it's also true that it's only one of many elements needed to make a company succeed. Catalin cites Visicalc (the company was named Software Arts), and the truth is precisely the opposite. I know the founders (of Software Arts) very, very well. Dan Bricklin had the creative idea, and Bob Frankston is a super-A+ programmer. This is exactly the scenario you're talking about!You probably need more than one A+ developer when you get started, but one is enough to get your startup moving, do prototyping, and then look for funding. By the way, if you can get "friends and family" money, or better yet bootstrap your company, you'll end up owning more of it. Go to angels and VC's when those or other creative sources fail. Common Angels, my group, are wonderful people, and some VC's are too (they vary tremendously, one to the other).Other answers to your question (e.g. from Michael Wolfe) have great advice, but aren't actually directly addressing the question you asked: where does one find such people?The only way I know is: through personal connections. You need to have friends who are experienced technical people, who know other such people, and might know if they're in a position to be interested in joining you.Cory Riddar's answer, namely outsourcing the work, will be appropriate or not depending on what you're doing. Some ideas involve innovative and complex software technology, e.g. new database systems. My startups were both in that category (Symbolics and Object Design). Others kinds of startups just need someone to build a basic web site. And there are many specialized skill sets these days, if your product is in computer security, you absolutely need a computer security expert. So, know in detail what you're looking for, not just "rock star".Good luck!!
