    Hey Everyone,

    I was recently referred to check out this page by a friend and I have to say my mind is absolutely blown. As someone who does not come from a tech background many of the posts and ideas shared on this website are brand new to me. I've worked for advertising agencies as a student and to be honest the methods explored on here are miles ahead of a lot of these companies. (Even just the White Hat)

    I'm still learning but once I feel comfortable my eventual goal is to build 1 or a few income generating niche websites. As a current (unhappy) full time professional I do not have a lot of free time so my goal right now is to just learn as much as possible. I believe this is the future of small business but it also seems like a gamble especially for someone like me who plans on investing personal savings.

    My top priority is developing a page with good content with the help of a free lancer. (Please do not respond as another thread will be opened in the appropriate topic) My question is how do I screen/select one? Any advice helps.

    I would like get to know some other experienced members. I'm not looking for someone to teach me how to increase traffic or help me pick a niche but I would like to be able to have a seasoned opinion during the strategy building phase. Although I'm not experienced in this area I do have experience in the finance/operation management industry and I am always willing to help.

    Wish me luck!

    My suggestion is that you go out and build a website now.

    Buy a domain, get hosting, and set up a wordpress blog about something you can talk intelligently about.


    That "my eventual goal is to build" thing usually means you will not have a website built this time next year, and you will still be reading till your eyes bleed instead of doing. Bite that bitch in the ass and get on with it.

    You have SO much to learn, start now, even if what you do sucks. You can make your second site the masterpiece.
