I am a 74 year old Grandma from Moldova, the poorest country in Europe. I survived WWII, outlived 3 brothers who died of hunger and lived through the Soviet Union. AMA!

My short bio: I was born in 1942 in the village of Barta, then Romania, now called Plavnia in Ukraine. My father was drafted into the Romanian Army (then allied with Nazi Germany) in 1942, eventually coming home after the Battle of Stalingrad, only to be drafted again in 1944 but this time by the Red Army after the Russians took the Romanian region of Basarabia.

We were now part of the Soviet Union. I grew up in a house with my Mother and Grandparents. I had a total of 7 brothers and sisters, 3 of whom eventually succumbed to hunger and diseases around 1946, when the Soviets started taking all our food to send back to Russia. My Grandpa also died of hunger when he refused to give up his horse. Back then we relied on roots and small rations of soups as everything was for the collective.

In 1956 I finished 7th grade in the local school. I wanted to study, but everything was far away, we had no roads and no chance to reach any other schools so I started learning how to sew from my neighbor in her improvised shop. This unfortunately didn't help our condition as I couldn't earn any money with my skills.

Once Stalin died, a lot of deported men and women where allowed to go back to their homes, and in 1962 I met one of those men, who wanted us to marry. We did, but I set a condition: I would only become his wife if I we moved to his village, Cuza-Voda, since they had a high-school and I could study 3 more years.

Having finished high-school, I moved to the capital city of Moldova, Chisinau, to become a pharmacist while my husband studied in the Music Collegium. We eventually moved back Cuza-Voda, had a daughter and lived through the Soviet Union, after which our country became the independent Republic of Moldova in 1991. It is indeed weird to see all these countries named in such a small region; now imagine having 3 different identities throughout your life: Romanian, Soviet and Moldovan.

My family was always very patriotic and I'm a big History and Geography fan. It'd be my pleasure to answer any questions you might have.

My Proof: This is me with my Granddaughter, who is helping me with this AMA and translating things to English: Last summer, and this is us now.

I floated down a major American river on a raft made of trash and survived (barely). Ask me anything!

Inspired by my trainhopping experience and my 5th grade reading of Huck Finn, I traveled across country in my beat-up old pickup truck and built a raft out of trash and floated one of the largest fastest rivers on the continent. We survived and floated new rivers every year, launching whole punk raft flotillas. Now I'm an artist who floats major rivers in a homemade shantyboat gathering river stories.

I've traveled over 1000 miles in my shantyboat on the Mississippi and Tennessee Rivers and conducted over 85 oral history interviews and 100 hours of video in the last three years. This summer, I will be floating 500 miles on California's Sacramento River through the Central Valley.

IamA entrepreneur who sold more than $22M worth of online businesses and built a 100% remote company while traveling the world - all from my laptop. AMA!

My name is Justin Cooke, I am the co-founder of Empire Flippers where we help others buy, sell, and invest in online businesses.

Along with my business partner, Joe Magnotti, we started building and selling our own websites back in 2009-2010, but eventually pivoted to a brokerage & marketplace where we bring together sellers, buyers, and investors to close deals.

The company has grown quite a bit in the last few years - from $200K in sales in 2012 to nearly $10M in 2016 - enough to get us listed at #161 on the INC 5000 list. To date, we’ve helped broker more than $22M in online business sales and are on track to do around $18 - 20M in 2017.

We are a US based company, but run our business from SE Asia and we’ve grown our team by hiring “apprentices” and bringing them halfway around the world to join us. As they grow they become part of our core team.

Our management team is technically “location independent”, but we all get together every 3-4 months to spend a month working together. Our current get together is happening right now in Saigon, Vietnam. We just hired 4 new apprentices and are experiencing one of the biggest months in the company’s history with over $3 Million in online businesses sold.

I’m a fan of Reddit and the /r/IAmA sub, so I’m really hoping to provide value and give back to the community. We broker almost every type of online business (Adsense, Amazon Affiliate, FBA, E-commerce, Private Affiliate, iOS apps, SaaS, etc.) and have seen thousands of unique and successful businesses. You can read more about the 11 most popular type of online business models here: https://empireflippers.com/11-popular-business-models-online/

Feel free to AMA about buying, selling or investing in online businesses, building management teams, starting a podcast, growing our business, interesting niches, living/working remotely, or anything else!




Previous AMA

Edit 1:

Holy S***! - thanks for all the questions/comments/love - You all are awesome and the questions have been extremely interesting to answer- keep them coming! Sorry I haven't gotten to DM’s yet - I am going try to get to those tomorrow and focus on answering as many comments as I can today.

For anyone curious about selling, but wondering how much your site is worth, we've created this Valuation Tool. It will give you a "rough" estimate, but we actually use this to list/price the businesses with us, so it's pretty accurate.

If you know you're ready to sell, you can submit your site for sale with us here.

If you're wondering what types of business we have listed for sale, you can check out our marketplace and review the businesses we have for sale.

Edit #2

Quite a bit of our business success was due to creating high quality content that educates and expands our industry which is why we LOVE doing things like this - we really enjoy interacting with everyone here. I hope you're digging it as well.

Getting quite a few in-depth questions that we've covered elsewhere. For people really looking to find out more about entrepreneurship, our apprentice model, and our thoughts on business in general, feel free to check out The Empire Podcast here (Listen on our site, on iTunes, on Stitcher, etc.) It's our not-so-weekly show that I think you might dig.

Edit #3

Hey all - thank you so much for this amazing opportunity! It's after 2am here in Saigon, Vietnam right now, so I'm going to cut this off and go to bed tonight. I'll wake up tomorrow and try to get back to your questions - hopefully you'll find them helpful/useful.

I know plenty of you are new to business - particularly online business models - but we wrote a post that goes into some depth explaining how each of the 11 most popular online business models works.

It's for newbies mostly, but even if you have some experience you might find some value...especially when we talk about them from a buying/selling perspective.

You can check that post out here:

Again - thank you so much and I'll try to get back to more of your questions tomorrow!

IamA I spent the last 2 years turning my idea for a MMORPG into a board game and raised over $250,000 to make it, AMA! AMA!

Hi Everyone,

I’m Frank, world builder and game designer of The City of Kings.

I spent the last 2 years designing an open world board game with skill trees, professions, procedurally generated creatures, side quests, the holy trinity, raid like combat and much more, heavily inspired by Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft and Diablo.

You can watch the trailer on YouTube here.

A few months ago, I quit my job to work on this full time and have now raised over $250,000 on Kickstarter to fund manufacturing.

I’d love to answer your questions about designing games, building worlds, running Kickstarters or anything else you wish to know!

IamA scientist who has spent my entire career studying terrible diseases - Ebola, smallpox, rabies, anthrax and many others. I'm here to answer your questions on infectious diseases of biodefense. AMA!

My short bio: I earned my Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Arizona working to understand how herpes viruses replicate their DNA. I went on to work at USAMRIID studying Ebola, pox viruses, SARS, tick-borne encephalitis virus and others. I was at USAMRIID when the 9/11 and subsequent anthrax letter attacks happened and was scrutinized (along with many others) by the FBI. I worked at the CDC studying live smallpox virus, and at the time, was one of only 20 or so people in the world authorized to have access to the virus. I went on to work at the world's largest biorepository and then to different non-profit contract research organizations helping to develop new vaccines and antibiotics/antivirals for many high-hazard pathogens. I have worked extensively under biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) containment, worked with many different species of animals to develop models of these diseases, and serve as a subject matter expert on biodefense for various parts of the government on sometimes-classified projects.

My current projects include work on different viruses, bacteria, toxins and fungi.


Flu, Zika, Ebola, VEE, EEE, WEE, MERS, SARS, Dengue, Chikungunya, rabies


B. anthracis, Y. pestis, B. mallei, B. pseudomallei, MRSA, Pseudomonas


Staph enterotoxin B, ricin, Botulinum neurotoxin

I am a 22 year old with severe Hemophilia A. I was adopted at the age of 13, have worked in Washington, DC, and am currently the youngest member of my local chapter’s Board of Directors. This August I will be biking 300+ miles to raise awareness and support for the bleeding disorders community. AMA!

My short bio: Hey Everyone! My name is Adam Alver, and I am a 22 year old living with Hemophilia, type A severe. I grew up in a rural town of about 300 people until the age of 13, after which I was adopted due to family problems with my single mother, never having known my father. Afterward, I moved to a city with my adoptive parents, went to college, and will be graduating in May with a degree in political science.

I have worked in my state senate as an intern, and spent time in Washington, DC as a policy analyst for a nonprofit which helps provide assistance to struggling families of people with bleeding disorders, and advocates on a national level for better health care policies. I am the youngest serving member of my local Hemophilia Chapter's Board of Directors, and recently we were successful in getting our Governor to sign a proclamation declaring a day for Hemophilia Awareness.

This August I will be embarking on a 320 mile bike ride to raise funds and awareness for the bleeding disorders community in my state, and to bring more attention to the disease at large.

IamA wannabe comedian who brought a case of Pepsi to the Berkeley protests. You may have seen a stolen copy of my video on the front page this morning. AMA!

Woke up this morning to a bunch of people telling me "dude! You're on the front page of reddit!" Got excited, then saw it was a hijacked copy of my video without any attribution and got sad, then saw that at least some people in the comments were posting the link to the full vid and felt a little bit better.

Here's the original video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u3uhKxNPNg

Here's the unauthorized edited version: https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/comments/67fw0e/breaking_up_a_riot_with_pepsi/

(Again, great work! Just... you know, hook a nobody like me up with a link next time)

Anyhow, I'm a 29-year-old comedian, originally from Massachusetts, now living in the Bay Area. Making this video and getting such an awesome response was the first time in six years I've not felt like a complete loser, and got me 20k subscriptions in just a week. I'm now trying to see if I can finally pursue my dream of doing comedy fulltime. If you have any questions about the video / protest, or about comedy in general, let me know!

I’m Don Knight, attorney for Oklahoma death row inmate Richard Glossip, featured in “Killing Richard Glossip” on Discovery ID. Ask me anything.

Oklahoma is gearing up to execute my client, Richard Glossip, for a 1997 murder that he didn’t commit. Richard was convicted based on the testimony from the actual admitted killer, whose name is Justin Sneed. Sneed traded his testimony to save himself from the death penalty, and is currently serving a life sentence at a medium security prison in Lexington, Oklahoma.

When Barry Van Treese was discovered, police overlooked any other evidence and targeted Rich from the beginning. They wrapped up their investigation in a week. This murder took place in Oklahoma City at a time when Bob Macy, dubbed “The Angel of Death” for his obsession with winning death sentences, was District Attorney. This fact, coupled with grossly ineffective representation at both of his trials, landed Rich on death row for a crime he did not commit.

In order to help tell Rich’s story — and potentially find new evidence and witnesses — we allowed Peabody-winner Joe Berlinger and his film crew to embed with us and conduct an independent investigation of the original murder, Rich’s two trials, and the three execution dates assigned to him in 2015. Watch all four episodes of “Killing Richard Glossip” here or watch a marathon of the entire show on Discovery ID this Sunday starting at 9am PST/12pm EST.

Send us information about the 1997 murder of Barry Van Treese, Richard’s innocence, or information about Justin Sneed here on www.RichardGlossip.com.

Struggled with forgetting a foreign language (e.g. high school Spanish)? We are the founders of FlipWord, a startup that lets you learn and practice while web browsing. Just raised over 50k through equity crowdfunding. AMA!

Short bio: We built FlipWord to make learning a language integrate into daily routines, rather than dedicating time to a class or app (Rosetta Stone/Duolingo). It automatically replaces a few selected English words on the web with their foreign equivalent based on an analysis of your language level, progress, and page content, as well as adding occasional small quizzes. All it takes to learn is mousing over the flipped words while reading, to see tiny lessons. Most people lose all progress quickly after a class or using an app, something we are designing for to prevent people from forgetting to continue. Our site is https://flipword.co, try it out! We’re also excited that we recently opened a new round of funding in conjunction with Republic, allowing anyone over 18 to invest for >$20. If you’re curious, link is https://republic.co/flipword. We've gained a lot of experience analyzing how people learn or fail to, and creating a startup. Excited to share our experience! AMA!

IamA 33-year-old quadriplegic that uses computers for everything from chemical engineering to TV control. AMA!

Over 14 years ago I fell while skiing and broke several vertebrae in my neck, including the C1, C4, and C5. I sustained a C4/5 complete (ASIA A) spinal cord injury (SCI) and have used a wheelchair ever since. I returned to school and now work in R&D as a chemical engineer.

Three years ago I did an AMA and got a lot of great questions. Before my injury, I knew absolutely nothing about SCI, so there are definitely no dumb questions. Although it's not my main focus in life, I appreciate spreading awareness about SCIs and other physical disabilities.

I plan on mostly answering questions throughout Tuesday morning, so get to it and AMA!

Spoiler: my hands don't work. I'm not very good at selfies. Please accept my previous proof photo – http://imgur.com/fGVj5OG

I'm the president of a tuition-free, accredited, online American university. I want to show you that a high-quality degree does not have to be just a dream. AMA!

I'm Shai Reshef, president of University of the People aka UoPeople, a tuition-free accredited online American university. Our mission is to open the gates of higher education to every qualified student, regardless of any financial, geographical, political, cultural or personal contraints that would otherwise prevent them from doing so.

Many of our students are in the US, where the prospect of crippling student loans can be an insurmountable barrier to entry, or in the case of undocumented immigrants not even an option. Other members of our student body hail from about 200 countries around the world, from Africa, the Middle East, East Asia and Europe. We are open to all, but we are especially a lifeline for those who have no other opportunities to learn.

The university offers two-year associate and four-year bachelor’s degree programs in Business Administration, Computer Science, and Health Science, as well as an MBA program. Our President's Council includes chancellors, vice chancellors and presidents of leading universities such as NYU, UC Berkeley, Columbia, Duke University, George Washington, Edinburgh and Oxford.

University of the People has been featured in The New York Times, BBC, NPR, Times Higher Education, US News and World Report, Huffington Post, Voice of America, the Financial Times, The Economist, Forbes and many more. In 2014, I gave a TED talk about the university and its revolutionary model, which has so far had over 4 million views.

We want people to know that higher education can be accessible, affordable and high quality. It is possible to get a real, career-boosting accredited degree online, and in way that won't leave you paying off enormous loans for decades.
