I still have a lot of ideas to pursue, but decided to dip my toes in the water and try setting up a site. Being a complete novice, I'm pleased with the skills its given me. I've registered my domain, sorted out hosting, done pdf conversion, purchased PLR content, studied up on FTP and downloaded NVU. Phew!
Tomorrow I'll be putting meat on the bones, but for now very pleased with myself.
When people say they literally started from scratch and it is possible to build up an online business from nothing, I can now verify its true !!
