I would recommend paying attention to your needs that are not being currently met in the online market place. Is there a service or product you wish you had that would help new mothers and fathers?
What ever the business you choose, make sure it is one you have intimate knowledge and experience in. Often times you can get caught in a fantasy of what it would be like to be in a business and not really focus on the reality of what you could actually accomplish.
So, with that being said, choose a business you have a passion for, have direct experience in and most important, never invest more than 30% of your savings into your business.
I have seen countless start ups do this and suffer. Starting and running a new business is a big gamble.
Good luck out there and congrats on your new family addition.
This depends on how well you have planned for the future.
If you have enough money for business and personal for a year, I would expect you would need to feel focused on results, happy clients, even happier investors and not focus much on how your feeling at the moment.
If you have spent thousands creating a new online business without money, support and team back up, I would imagine you are feeling desperate, embarrassed and possibly delusional.
Starting a business is an ever evolving experience. One that teaches you painful and joyful lessons alike.
When you jump, make sure you have a parachute that works.
G'luck out there!!!
Sandy Rowley is a very talented web designer. She has a unique talent of being able to incorporate user personality into her designs. You can't just have one conversation with Sandy, you will want to have many! She is a pleasure to speak with and is always there give you valuable suggestions and feedback. Sandy is also an SEO genius! We were coming up on the first pages of Google before our Beta site was even launched! I can't say enough great things about Sandy and highly recommend her, and Mega Star Media, to everyone!
I love Sandy! She is great. Her and I work so good together. I would recommend her unique designs to anyone that asked. Kudos, to you Sandy. I am sure we will have a long working relationship.
Sandy is a strong SEO marketing and Google afficionado, advocate and zealot. She is tireless in her pursuit of partnering with individuals to deliver business results in her domain.
Sandy's extremely generous donation made it possible for Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada to have a fresh and dynamic web site. During the build-out process, Sandy was always kind, patient, and very excited to build RMHC the best web site possible. The end product was truly perfect and it met all of our priorities--including having a CMS that allowed anyone (even volunteers!) to update content easily. Thanks, Sandy!
I started working with Sandy first in 2003. It's 2008 and I am still using her services. Sandy is extremely creative and very personable. Take a look at my website Sandy designed at www.boedai.com and I'm sure you will not be disappointed.
Sandy is a breath of fresh air! She is very creative in marketing, web design and social media. She is a joy to work with and has a very strong work ethic. I explained the direction I wanted to take my company in and Sandy produced the results I was looking for! She is top notch! I highly recommend Sandy for all your media needs.
I strongly recommend Sandy Rowley and her company, Megastar Media, INC. Sandy has helped me on several occasions to cut through the techno-babble of social media, and provide for better communication. It is important to have someone who knows where to look for links and to provide assistance. Sandy’s knowledge of the industry is very impressive. Recently, a non-profit company I volunteer for needed to understand how LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and a blog could be integrated to provide for greater productivity and outreach. Sandy was there to assist us in the process. I hope to use Sandy’s expertise in the future for my campaign for local government and my personal business.
Sandy and her team became invaluable extensions of the dadomatch.com team. Sandy brought insight, vision, and pure talent (along with a lot of patience) to the table. Sandy and her team also kept the project moving on schedule. We enjoy collaborating with Sandy and we are grateful for the value we have received! Most importantly, our team and community love the look and feel of the new site. We will use Mega Star Media again!
Sandy helped the Conscious Community network with some social media strategies that proved to be very successful. Her heart is in her business---she is very passionate about helping the community and it shows. Through time, we were able to see the need for a new brand, what we now call Connecting the Good. I recommend Sandy for all of your projects.
