I want to take time in this post to touch on something specific. I know I have been babbling about entrepreneur this, entrepreneur that. Initially I was going to launch this site to show off my success and talk tons of trash.
Then I took a few seconds to really think about the content I would be pushing out to the world. So I decided to go in a different direction with this site, I wanted to be different. I want the world to know that whatever you want to be in life you can do it. Whether you are a college student or own a local St Louis towing company regardless of your field, I want you to keep on pushing yourself to do what makes you happy.
Mixing family and friends into your entrepreneurship journey is tricky for sure. Some may support you others will not. Think about this you may see what I see one or two ways, as “9-5er” or a fellow entrepreneur. Most folks are comfortable with their full time job and are secure with that steady paycheck.
That’s all good and well but there a select few who have that eye of the tiger. The Entrepreneur knows there is more to life than a full time job. I learned the hard way that a mindset is a mindset.
The Online Directory Business was the best way to go a couple years ago and it still is banking profit. Now that I’m on a higher level all the income produced from one site is strictly for charity. Yes charity, I learned quickly as a Young Entrepreneur that being an entrepreneur is about giving back when you reach certain a level in your entrepreneurship.
I remember the day I started my first directory site I cashed in and left my 9-5 weeks later. I made the directory and was sure to include everything from local wedding planning to wedding catering and more. It was simple, a bride, groom or wedding planner would find the site and enter specific information about their wedding day. I created this directory in such a way that it would connect a local client to a local wedding planner.
Do you have what it takes to be a young Entrepreneur? Well I know I did and let’s just say this I’m not over the hill just yet. I remember when I first launched my online business I was terrified and unsure of what I was doing. I took the plunge and I never looked back. I know you must be wondering, what exactly do you do online?
What I do is quite simple I provide marketing and lead generation services for Small business owners. I also create them custom online directories tailored to their industry. I recently launched a directory for Chiropractor’s in a major city and let’s say they are very happy. I did this once and I repeated over a hundred times for a hundred businesses. I have worked with Plumbing Contractors, Electricians, Roofers, Dj’s you name it I have been a part of it.
