    I'm assuming you mean an online business? Or an offline business? If it's the latter, the rest of my post is completely irrelevant.

    Few months back.

    Close to ten. But really, a couple high paying ones is all you really need.

    1-2 hours a day actually doing the service, and another hour marketing it.

    Hmm...I think 12 hours.

    Nope, not mine, as my business is centered around a service, not a product.

    Realizing that the world doesn't owe me crap, and if I want something, I've to GO GET IT.

    That and the fact that I'm awesome at what I do.

    Online, yes...

    Well, in your case it seems you're more self employed than running a business.

    Thanks anyways.

      I think that I can call the service I provide a business.

      If you knew a content writing firm with twenty writers, would you call it a business? I would, and so would quite a few others.

      That's exactly what I do, except on a 20x smaller scale.

      I both run my business AND I'm employed in my business.

      A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

        To learn a bit about fellow Warriors and their business. Nothing wrong with that. If you don't want to answer the Qs...don't.

    My business details have no relevance to what you're going to do with your business.
    I would recommend setting your own goals and focusing on them so you can achieve success for yourself.
