As a kid I always wanted to do something in computers - Lack of understanding about higher education, you can say
When I grew up that "something in computers" changed to "Engineering in CS"
And then with my hard work and dedication, i took up admission in Engineering.
I wanted to earn some pocket money simultaneously and was fond of reading this computer magazine DIGIT. In a subscription I read about blogging and Google Adsense . A basic know how to make money via a site.
With all the resources and knowledge I had, I finally took up blogging and copy pasting type of Grunt Job which I used to do from my home and make some $100 per month.
During all these years of study, one thing I was sure about that I would be worst as a programmer.
In my final year of college,I got selected in an MNC but fortunately or unfortunately the company got acquired by some other company wh canceled all the new placements.
Until then I never realized I want to take up my online part time job as a full time career.
So I teamed up with the same company I used to do blogging for and the guy, agreed to partner with me and do some projects together.
This is how I came up with a few sites and started generating income through them. Amazingly, I did a lot of code handling in PHP, CSS, HTML. I don't know from where did that understanding came from.
The most important thing that I experienced again and again was the "never give up attitude" and "focus".
I kept on trying and I still am trying. My greed for knowledge does not end. I compete with myself every single day and make sure I learn one new thing each day. I am not big at the moment but I can say with confidence that one day I will be, attending Pub Cons around the world.
I think that's enough about me and would like to know how others got into online business and share a brief story to add a personal touch to your post.
Please feel free to share.
Thanks to all those who took out time and made an effort to read/reply to this post.
