Greetings fellow WA members! I'm here to learn how to get my own online business built right and to make a profit doing it!! I'm tired of all the get-rich-quick scams that promise thousands of dollars ... most don't tell you you're the one giving up the thousands, NOT making them!
A few words about me - I'm young at heart and my teenage son is my 'raison d'etre' ...
I'm artistic - painting, drawing and writing (calligraphy). But I'm also rather adept with words and have tried my hand at fiction and poetry. One of my favourite challenges is writing event-specific poetry for family and friends and this is an idea I think could work as a niche market product.
As I have been using computers since the seventies ... anybody else remember using the teletype key punch machines to create a program to solve an equation by running a stack of cards through a computer? Needless to say, I have worked on many different computers over the years; and many different operating systems with storage ranging from a 20MB hard drive with a 5 1/4 inch floppy disk to today's laptops and desktops with Terabytes of storage, and of course cell phones and tablet technologies.
If there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's that it's an ever-changing landscape and my niche will be trying to help the home-based business owner cope with the various software options available for him or her and control their costs by using open source solutions.
