For the past week and a half I have been reflecting on my financial situation and came to realisation that sitting in the house all day will not solve anything. So, i decided to start a web design business.
3 Days ago, i went into town to print a few flyers and head to some local businesses.
Day 1: Asked one business manager if they needed a website. She said her boss' son did the company's website however I left my flyer with here. As I walked out i apologised for the quality of the flyer. Her response: ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY.
Day 2: Approached 2 Businesses: Down the road their is a community group that my sister's friend's father runs. I walk in there and say I am designing websites for business and organisations. Their response: They do need a website for their organisation.
As I leave their premises, i walked past a house that is about 7 doors away from my home. From what i know they owner of the house is quite involved in the church and i see him outside. I approach him and tell him what i do. His response: They do need a website for their church and are in the process of finding one.. I give my details.
Day 3: I approach my old kindergarten and mention what i do. At the moment they do not have a website but do need one although they are a non-profit community group.
The point I want to make is that Action is the Key to Progress. These were Non-Profit Orgs, what's going to happen when i approach for profit businesses?
Thanks to the offline community for your inspiration, especially John Durham, Martin Buckley and Iamnameless.
