IMAG0845Left_croppedI know one thing: I need to do more…

I set the stage in Part 1 of this post which is an effort to document my current state of mind regarding where I am about my goals in this adventure..    I realize now that:

Income comes from conversions from traffic you attract.

It is funny… Many of the podcasts and videocasts show only the successful approaches, but just a single handful (that I have been able to find) refer to the you how much time they actually spent to get to that point. Just like  home remodel shows on TV!

There are many different skills that come together when approaching this business. Some thoughts on the each of the different areas follow…Read More »I Know One Thing – Part 2

I Know One Thing – Part 1

I know one thing: I need to do  more…

IMAG0845croppedYes it is a bit of a spin on the ancient Greek phrase know as the Socratic Socratic paradox,:

“I know that I know nothing”
“I know one thing: that I know nothing”


Early on I said that I wanted make an effort to record my experience as I move along in this adventure…  This entry is not a particularly “good news” one, as I am currently struggling a bit…  Good or bad here it goes…

September 2012 and beyond.

This will be the first post of what I hope to be an informative and useful series ahead.  They will be under the category:  Online Business

I have been in the technology business for over 25 years, and for the vast part of them, they have been bear_smallgood years.        My work has consisted of helping corporations (large and small) develop, deploy and maintain technology-based solutions.  I have written and created hundreds, if not thousands, of emails, reports, PowerPoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, and such.    Spent tremendous amounts of hours in conference rooms, planes, trains and automobiles, not to mention the large list of hotels I’ve stayed at.        I really have no complaints to talk about.  Overall, it has been a good time, done some great projects and developed long-lasting friendship.   Although things have not come “easy”, I’ve accomplished most of the goals I’ve set out to do (in retrospect they were probably not high-enough) with a combination of hard work, teamwork, good luck and good wine along the way.
