I've been lurking in this forum for the last few weeks, loading up on information and getting to know who's who and what not. Now that I've learned a little bit (a lot) I figured it was at least time to make an introduction. I've been passively playing around with different business ideas on the web for the past 5 years or so, and have never stuck with any of them long enough to actually bring one to success. Slowly over the past 2 years, I have gotten more and more dedicated, culminating in the last coupe months where I have been giving more directed (rather than passive) SEO and IM a shot. So far, I've made a small chunk of money and gotten a couple pages to slow progress onto the first page of Google. This forum has by far been the greatest resource that I've stumbled across in all of this. Aside from that, my day job is working for a U.S. distributor as a salesman on their dropship fulfillment side of things. That has helped fuel my learning, desire for an escape from a cube and interest in ecommerce of all sorts. Anyway, looking forward to meeting and learning with all of you.
