Is starting your own business bugging you?

Starting a business can be an exciting venture offering many rewards. However, you must be prepared and you must understand the basics. So while you still have that steady income, take the opportunity to read and learn about the opprtunities that exist out there.

You can
  1. Sell your product
  2. Sell other people's products
  3. Drop Ship
  4. Offer your experise and services

and more. All of the above can be achieved via the internet. Set up a website and go. first, you must choose and register a domain name. Keep your domain name simple. Because you would like as many people as possible to visit your site, use good judgment and pick a name that is easy to remember. Next, you must choose a web hosting company to host your site for you. Hosting prices vary from $10/month on up depending on the nature of your site and the amount of traffic you expect; extremely popular sites can expect to pay for a more expensive plan, or to pay extra bandwidth charges.

If you are going to build your Web site yourself, you might find that HTML (hypertext markup language) editors and WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) composers, such as the Microsoft FrontPage Web site creation and management tool, are extremely helpful. WYSIWYG editors let you create your site's look and feel while they create the HTML code for you.

Or go for the free sites with free hosting. The 2 that people use most are Yahoo Geocities and Bravenet
