Are You Dreaming of Owning an Online Business

Are you dreaming of owning an online business, that puts passive income in your pockets every month like clockwork? That would free up your time, allowing you to focus on what’s important in your life?

I hate to break it to you, but the odds aren’t really in your favor…

See, creating an online business normally takes time. A lot of it. When I first started in this business, it took me about 2 years of painful trial-and-error before I “made it”. And I had the (huge) advantage of being able to work on my business for 4-6 hours per day, since I was a student at the time.

2 years working 4 hours per day… Oooh my… I spent over 2500 hours before I got it right! If I had only been able to work 1 hour per day, it would have taken me a whooping 8 years!

Are you prepared to spend 2-8 years in front of your computer desperately searching for a working method? Pretty depressing, wouldn’t you say?

What does and doesn’t increase conversions varies greatly from site to site, but there are a few things that never fail to kill conversions completely…

Web Development

Where did I learn to produce this spiffy site? Glad you asked.I was department editor at Genetic Health—a company that provided online information about the genetics of common diseases. The company is gone, but the web site still exists at www.genetichealth.com. Genetic Health was a small company, and as such the editors could be found producing HTML, learning JavaScript, and helping with design issues in addition to our usual word-smithing tasks. That was a fun job.
