Hi everyone ... Des here from South Australia.
It's taken me a few weeks to get net access to post this intro, so I'm happy that I'm now doing it. You see, I'm taking time out (my "gap year") and travelling with my wife around Western Australia, and then back to base for a month before taking off again.
I joined NAMS on the advice of Dr Mani, a top guy with great ideas and words. And I decided to do it because of where I am with my online biz, although because of my limited net access during travels I thought I'd just try NAMS for a short time.
My "transition" vision involves taking my offline biz online (I'm a self-employed environmental/civil engineer with a passion for sustainable living); but that's taken a backseat at this stage. My current project is to help people who have fallen on tough times (I've seen it many times) particularly in the past few years, and to present opportunities and methods for these people to use their creative selves to earn an online income. I'm calling on my management background here.
And so, I've written 3 ebooks ( a sort of trilogy) - Map Your Goals Guide, Home Business In New Times, and Write To Prosper. The unfortunate aspect is that I've yet to put them online because of the travel thing I'm caught up in. In August back at base all this will change. But I've been looking at Tradebit, JVZoo, and Clickbank. I'm yet to finalise my systems for handling all aspects of list building, sales, follow-up etc.
I hope the info at NAMS can assist me, but for the next 6 weeks any progress will be punctuated with travel and no net access.
BTW, I've been building a website NewTimesHomeBiz.com using Sandvox 2 (a Mac app), and have added a lot of content and created an AR series. But I'm not sure if I shouldn't be using Wordpress or perhaps XSitePro (which is a Windows app and would need to be run in virtual on my Mac. The advantage of Sandvox and XSP is that I can continue to work offline on my site. The limitations with Sandvox are the few options for ecommerce and membership platforms.
Any comments from members about any of these issues, particularly if I should head straight to WP, would be greatly appreciated.
The best to all
(somewhere in Western Australia)
