HELP ! Business is booming !

Some of you know I started my own business after hours from my day job @ Cisco, doing graphical design, promotion and web sites and stuff...

Well, all of a sudden business is BOOMING and I have 6 customers that are in line for me to do a project for them !

This month I will actually make more from my own business than working for Cisco

Thing is, I do all this work at night or in the weekend, so I'm gonna be very busy working 20 hours a day for the next couple of weeks !

And to think Motomummy started it all for me...

THANKS Corey !!!!

...and to think I never did any advertising... It's all word of mouth business...

Actually I could have had 7 projects, but one of them was a porn site, and I don't want my company to be linked to that sort of business Think I made the right decision there ?

i'm glad it's working out alex. i really hope it allows you to go fulltime if that's what you want to do. it's more stress, but for a certain type of person it's very rewarding to work for yourself and know you created it, etc...

we are both in the same boat. i hope it continus for both of us it's fun too

alex if you're bringing in enough business to be happy then filter customers all you want, but if your'e not then you need to decide if you want your person ethics involved in the business or if business is business. *shrugs*

You might have a 7 project, I am about 50% done with getting all our literature scanned and ready and prolly start with maybe 10-20 pages at first and then add more as I get more of our frickin pictures scanned..


. I'll let ya know when I have everything, and I know it might take awhile since you have these other projects going..

personal ethics are much easier when the money is coming in...there is a lot of money to be made in that industry.

We all saw the skill you had and knew where this would go for you! Keep it up and you will be your own boss one of these days just like you wanted. Let me know when you need to hire an apprentice to take up some of the work load, lol.................. :

it's also some of the most difficult and rewarding....

They know what they want, and the pages have to be very well coded to withstand all of the traffic they receive.

That type of business will teach you the proper and most efficient way to do almost everything you do.


might want to keep that in mind also.

Very few other sites get the traffic that even a small porn site does.

Phew.... Last couple of days have been BUSY !!! Just finished 3 of the most urgent projects. Last 3 days have been good for my wallet though. Making $$$ and working 20 hrs a day so no time to spend any

One of the projects was a website for a local hotel. Finished now, and I think it looks very stylish though simple. One of the projects was a publicity flyer. Another was a website relocation. Learning as I go Learned a lot working on these projects over the last few days.

Now finally got some time to sit down and relax...
