"Build your home business and give yourself choices"
Everyone seems to be trying their luck online with their Internet Home Based Business Idea.
This is great in a lot of ways, particularly as it encourages entrepreneurship and can be a reasonably low risk way to get business experience.
One of the big risks, however, is that you can waste a lot of time and energy because you really don't know what you are doing!
For me, the starting point was finding something that I knew and understood well enough to promote online.
Then it became a question of "Was I really interested enough to develop a business around it?"
I also knew enough to know that I didn't know very much about setting up and operating an internet home based business!
Some people may see this as a bit silly, but I actually see it as smart - because if you don't know what you don't know; then how can you fix it!
So I set about finding out what I didn't know.
I am all for getting the answer the fastest way possible. I am not after a sub-standard answer, but I don't see any point in re-inventing the wheel.
Plus when I started out online I was building a local home based business while using the internet to find clients. So my main focus wasn't learning how to build a website, but rather how to use a website to build my business.
And this actually continues to be my focus. Others may choose to learn more and then go on to build websites for others - another good source of income. But my business commitment remains building a strong home based business income - leading to both personal and financial freedoms.
I learned a lot through advice and information, but I also learned a lot through trial and error as I did build the website myself - using an easy process of templates.
I learned enough to be able to update and change my site on my own using the templates. Then I taught myself some HTML programming language to allow me to trial ideas as I had them.
From beginnings as a novice I know feel comfortable operating online businesses, and trying new technology and ideas.Return from Internet Home Based Business Idea
