I am on a high right now. I just looked at my first website which I started in early 2004 and left my job in 2007. I am not gonna mention the sites name, but anyways.
It looks very cheesy, something you would shake your head at and say, OMG, how the heck did that work....
What I did not know then:
- I knew nothing about email lists
- I knew nothing about SEO
- I knew nothing about backend sales
What I did know then:
- Create value, charge people for it.
- FOCUS was important.
- Treat it like a business
- Always be marketing
- Go above and beyond to do whatever it takes for customers
I will made a full time income to quit my job. The moral is just do it, dont worry about the details.
I just thought it was cool to see this and hope it motivates you
