Since I was 16 I knew I wanted to own my own business. I opened a couple here and there but they never worked out and it wasn't even close to what I wanted to do. But with the internet I found something I really enjoyed. I loved designing webites and learning html and java.
This really helped me figure what type of business I wanted to start.
Back then the best modem you could get was a 2400 baud so if you think your internet connection is slow now, think again. From there I went 17k in credit card debt to open my first website. It all started with this one website over 4 years ago and it was a really rough road. I almost went out of business 6 months after I started it but I decided to go all out in May of 1997. I went into even more debt which was on my credit cards at the time since the interest rate was only 2.9%. It was a big risk but that is what it is all about when owning your own company. I worked some crazy hours alot of the times late at night when the internet wasn't so busy. I am really glad I stuck it through because now I own over 40 websites and still growing. Today
I have owned my own business for over 4+ years designing and developing mostly my own websites but some for other companies. I also host other sites for some other companies. After Matthew Shepard was murdered I was so moved I decided to design a site in memory of him, you can see it here.
I am also starting to get into purchasing real estate as an investment.
I purchased my first property awhile ago and hope to purchase another one in 2001. This is a better investment than the stock market and I think alot safer. I have been interested in real estate for awhile. All of these things are keeping me very busy to say the least.
