I am the dreaded newbie that has been creeping here for years, I have read e-books, threads and watched videos but have found it hard to know what to invest my time in.
What I have: Smarts, time, effort, heavy computer literacy and realistic expectations.
Interests: Baking, fashion, frugality, home-remedies, wedding planning, public speaking.
I am a recruiter as my career and would like to build income that is realistic! I have been telecommuting for years making money for other people and now I want to do it for myself. I can dedicate 20-30 hours a week to start with the hopes of going full time making $3,500-5k a month. Just like my "real" job.
What I don't have: A reliable "non-scam" guide to follow, a mentor, or a good idea of where to begin.
I'm great at recruiting, have set up some basic jewelry websites (no traffic of course), am a decent writer and REALLY want to cut ties to a schedule. I have thought about trying YouTube but something about putting myself out there is a little scary.
With all of my skills, can someone point me in the direction of where its easiest for a beginner to start? Even if its just research... I know these posts are likely frequent but I'm not looking to get rich quick without the efforts, I'm educated, professional and ready to begin a new journey!
I appreciate your response
