Free Quick Start Guide

I have also prepared a quick start guide with loads of resources to help you get started working or taking your business online. The quickest way to get it is to subscribe using this link and I will email it to you immediately.

Like me, I’m sure you have loads of questions. Over time this blog will grow to try and answer some of those questions as well as share the experiences and knowledge I’ve acquired over the years and continue to learn on my journey. I will be creating more detailed individual posts that will hopefully make life a little easier for you.

Some of the questions I had, and questions that others have asked me are things like:

  • Where do I start?
  • What do I do first?
  • Can I make a realistic income working from home?
  • Can I afford it?
  • How do I build a client base?
  • How do I outsource? Where do I find people to outsource work?

If you are asking yourself these questions, then great, you are in the right place. Whilst I can’t answer all of those questions for every business category, what I can do is help point you in the right direction to help get you started.

While I get these posts ready (which may take a little while), you can check out a short guide I created that simply and briefly takes you through the steps you need to follow, and the questions that only you can answer to help you get started. This eBook also contains tons of online working resources including websites that facilitate outsourcing and business expansion, sites that pay to have stuff done and affiliate programs that you can join. I also outline of some of the tools that I find indispensable. As I mentioned above, you can easily get it by subscribing here.
