Every day people are using online businesses for their needs and purchases. In fact I’d be willing to bet that almost all of us have bought a gift for someone online or used a company’s website to access their services. We have probably all used eBay.com, amazon.com, or even Walmart.com. Shopping online is fast and convenient which is probably why so many people these days are forsaking department stores.
We all love the idea of being able to shop from the comfort of our homes. We can browse thousands of products while watching TV, or we can look up millions of videos to watch on websites like YouTube.com. As Americans we absolutely love surfing the web. Even our phones now give us the capability to access the internet no matter where we are.
Have you ever wondered who made such sites as Facebook.com and Amazon.com such powerhouses? You would think that these extremely popular sites were the product of a highly educated post graduate degreed person in the field of either computer science or business management. Someone with years of experience in those fields as well. The fact is that Facebook was founded by a college kid in his dorm room. He is worth billions today.
Thanks to all the current technology, any of us could create our own online business and be successful. With the right software and support we could create our own business and start taking advantage of all the people shopping and conducting business online. Finally we can be our own bosses and work the hours that we want to work. We no longer have to be at the mercy of our employers.
We probably all hear talk around the water cooler about how our job sucks and we would love to win the lottery or be our own boss one day. Most of us though just figure it will never happen and force the thought to the back of our minds. That being our own boss just sounds too fantastic to ever be an actual possibility.
We assume that starting a business is fraught with risk and an extreme need for capital to start it up. We have all seen restaurants that opened with such fanfare and hope fail before the year was out losing every penny the budding restaurateur put into it. Retail stores and restaurants are on the decline in the real world, possibly due to our sinking economy and possibly to the ease of shopping online.
Online businesses are booming. The customer base is constantly growing. Your best shot at being your own boss and operating your own enterprise is to take advantage of the internet. The really good news about all this is that you can be your own boss, choose your working hours and do it all in your sweats without leaving home.
Everybody shops online and enjoys the experience because of the convenience. This means a huge opportunity for anyone with a sound online business concept. We can now experience flexible working hours, a flexible dress code and still earn an income ample enough to pay our bills and then some. This doesn’t happen exclusively to computer science whiz kids or financial geniuses. Given the proper software and the proper determination and attitude, any of us can be the captain of our own online business and can kiss the cubicle goodbye.
My friend vividly recalled his first kiss with his wife a decade ago. They were sitting on the couch in her dad’s living room and as he leaned over to kiss her, he lost his . . .
Arunoday Singh and Aditi Rao Hydari have created a record of sorts in Bollywood with their twenty two kisses in their film, Yeh Saali Zindagi. They seemed to have beaten Mallika Sherawat who had seventeen . . .
