I am currently stuck in a dead end job ( how many times have you heard that before, ). Anyway, I'm approaching 40, and i think that if I don't do something about my situation now, then I never will. I have looked at my options on what I can do to finally stick my middle finger up at my boss, and tell him to stick his job right up his arse, and have decided that probably my best option, would to be concentrate on local businesses, seems a lot less competition than trying to promote Amazon, ClickBank, and whatever else people do to try and earn money online nowadays, etc, etc. Now, although it would be nice to become the next "Internet Millionaire", i'm not initially wanting to set my targets too high. I am in the UK, and with my current crappy job, my annual income is just over 17k, ( before tax ). I would be happy to be able to match that, ( or to at least build up to a similar figure ), and have the opportunity to NOT be getting up at 5am, and being able to spend more time with my family. Just wondering if anyone can offer any good advice on the following:
1: What services to offer local businesses that would be of benefit to them.
2: What sort of prices to charge for those services.
3: What software/tools to use to make life easier for me in giving those services. ( obviously I don't expect these to be free, but preferably one time payment, rather than monthly )
Now, I guess I'm going to be getting the negative replies here ( i.e, if I don't know what to do, why even bother ), but even the most successful business's have to start somewhere, so that's why I'm asking for advice before I start, .
Appreciate any advice that people can give,
