I went to an all-day ebusiness seminar today at Rio Grande University in southern Ohio (35 dollars). It was put on by the Ohio State University business development centers and WesBanco and as a result I now have a business internet domain name and email address!!! I got the name I wanted. I am going to start working on my web page over the next month or so. My short term goal is to have my business on line by the end of the year. I don’t want to reveal the business name just yet as I haven’t finished registering the name or the business with the state. In the meantime, I will be working on a portfolio of items that I will start the online part of my business with. These will be items that I have designed, built, prepared for production and shipping. I’ve got so much to do but I feel really excited about the prospects. I realize it may be a long time before I ever see the first order, and may not make money for some time. I’ve been working on my business plan, and following a plan that is a living document is making me feel more confident that I am approaching this correctly. I learned a lot today about emarketing but I am barely scratching the surface on what I need to learn. My interest in business took a major shot in the arm today. I told my wife this evening that going to these seminars is pulling me out of my comfort zone and shell… I’m feeling much more confident. There are a couple more I am planning on going to by the end of the year. Most of them are free, with a few only being $25-35.
