I gave that up because I had enough of the 9 to 5 cycle of stress.
I wanted to build a business myself and be financially free.
And I wanted to get into something that didn’t cost an arm and a leg to get started.
And that was when I stumbled upon online marketing.
It ticked off a couple of things.
I can work from home. Tick. It didn’t require much of my money. Tick. It was flexible. Tick.
Just think about it. All you need is a laptop, internet, a table, a chair, and a willingness to make it work.
And so the new home business began!
Now learning from scratch was not easy. It was both overwhelming and frustrating.
- I had no idea what blogging was all about.
- I didn’t know what web hosting meant.
- I didn’t know squat about SEO.
Anyway, I learned as I went. You can say that it was a freaking circus show.
But I managed.
I learned how to build a blog from scratch … and learned from my stuff ups. Which was many.
(I kid you not, it was f%$king frustrating.)
But, I also read a lot about online marketing, entrepreneurship (like ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’, etc), and more.
And ever since then, I’m glad to say I’ve built a number of websites and blogs and helped a few local businesses with their online marketing.
It’s been both fun and challenging.
