You have to start somewhere! Welcome to my blog “It’s the Journey”! I’ve been a web developer and online entrepreneur for over 19 years. I’ve designed and marketed nearly 700 websites ranging from doctor’s and lawyers to performers and eCommerce sites.
When I first started back in 1997, I never realized how big the online world would become. I should have bought lots of domains back in the day, but that is really what this blog is all about…life’s lessons. In my 20’s I started out the normal way with working in the tech industry for some large corporations. And although I was making decent money, I was longing for more. I was dreaming of creating my own schedule where I didn’t have to wake up at 5am and commute an hour to work. I was dreaming of controlling my own lifestyle and working the hours I wanted to work. I was dreaming of raising my daughter and actually being active in her life every day, not just at night and on weekends. I was dreaming of traveling and living a simple life. So I took the leap and quit my corporate job in 1998 and while most of my friends were working 9-5 jobs, I was trying to figure out how to create my dream life with online businesses. Along the way I learned invaluable lessons and I have to admit that it wasn’t all beach days and naps! It was hard work.
The main purpose of this blog is to help you, my readers, to find your own bliss with an online business. Despite any negativity you may hear from friends or relatives, it is completely possible to make money online so that you can work from home, work from the beach or anywhere in the world you choose. I’ve seen it done, I’ve helped people do it and I’ve done it myself. So you will find everything you need in this blog to start your own dream business online. And since this is all about “the journey”, there will be several other fun and interesting topics and categories that just may enhance your life as well.
Let’s face it, life has changed drastically this past 10 years and people are pulling themselves out of the cubicles and into the outdoors. Some people are choosing to work abroad and discover the world. Some just want the comforts of home. No matter what your goal is, there is no reason you can’t make a good living from your laptop, from anywhere you choose.
