IamA entrepreneur, eight years ago my wife and I sold everything and bought a 90ft tunnel oven to make cookies. Today we’re shipping 1 thousand pounds a day. AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/2830/iama-entrepreneur-eight-years-ago-my-wife-and-i I'm a business owner and entrepreneur and I haven't worked for someone else since I was 19. My last AMA was in 2011 http://redd.it/f89jr I'm doing this so that I can answer any questions you may have about being in business or starting your own company.

In 2006, my wife and I began selling our home-made chocolate chip cookies in Farmer's markets around LA, and today we’re baking about 1,000 pounds a day.

We named our cookies “The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies In The World” not as hype, but because we think that’s what they are. What makes them unique is that so far as we know, they're the only no-compromise chocolate chips ever produced on earth.

Here's a video we shot 10 days ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMW23e1PUmM

Our motivation has little to do with anything practical.

We procure the best ingredients attainable, not the best you can find in a grocery store, but the best you can find in the WORLD! Like imported, semi-sweet, Belgian chocolate and pure, imported, Madagascar vanilla. We blend fresh, hand-cracked eggs with the best American and imported French butter to obtain a perfect balance of flavor and smoothness and then we add unrefined cane sugar, bake them to perfection and package them for everyone to scarf-down at will!

Our cookies are pretty much the home-baked chocolate chips most people’s taste buds crave! AMA!

EDIT #1: our bus: http://www.bartsbakery.com/uploads/images/images/Busbest.jpg For 18 months we lived in our bus, in the parking lot of our bakery, while we learned how to bake our cookies! It took hundreds of 70 lb. batches, and thousands of pounds of scrapped cookies,

EDIT#2: I just posted a REDDIT SPECIAL on our website: http://www.bartsbakery.com/ Go to the "all products" section on the menu bar: SCROLL DOWN TO THE REDDIT SPECIAL.

I'm a classically trained violinist, who's dabbled in jazz and rock 'n roll, and now I'm a recording artist on my own with my new second album, "lighght". I'm a singer, I produce my own music, and I play a variety of instruments, including violin, keyboards, and guitar. I beatbox and loop my sounds and create orchestral avante garde pop songs.

NPR featured me as best new artist of 2012. I'm into experimentation and new sounds, and I mix in some Japanese into there as well. AMA!

I am Tom Poetter, challenger to Speaker John A Boehner in 2014. AMA. http://www.topiama.com/r/2823/i-am-tom-poetter-challenger-to-speaker-john-a Friends, my name is Tom Poetter. I'm a college professor in the field of Education at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I got in the race for this seat in October during the government shutdown. Like many around the country, I was fed up with the lack of leadership and a lack of care for our democratic institutions and way of life. We have been running now for 9 months, making great progress and learning a lot. Our goal is to challenge and end Boehner's 12-term hold on this region and bring leadership and representation back to the office and the people of western Ohio. As we say sometimes, voters won't be losing a Speaker; they will be gaining a representative.

We are raising money from small donors to challenge Boehner on the ground. Please donate here: https://www.crowdtilt.com/campaigns/poetter-for-congress

and visit our website for more information: www.poetterforcongress.com

EDIT: Thanks for everyone's participation in our AMA today. We enjoyed the give and take, your sense of humor, your serious questions. We are going to break now and come back at an appointed time, hopefully one that we can work out with Reddit that is posted in the near future. Tom

IamA Ukrainian, who currently lives on the territory that is being controlled by pro-Russian rebels, AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/2820/iama-ukrainian-who-currently-lives-on-the The title is pretty self-explanatory. I'm a 21-year-old living in the town that is currently controlled by pro-Russian rebels. Several people suggested that I should (as a Slav with a sufficient command of English) conduct an AMA on Reddit.

While you can ask anything, remember that while I'll try to be as balanced as possible (not like Faux Noose but for real), know that I do have a certain bias because times like this force you to, sorta, choose your side.

Edit 18: I'm back and today, from time to time I'll answer remaining questions and then I'll stop. You have to stop some time, right?
