How many people here are running successful online businesses on their own? What is your business and how did you get started? Defining successful as a profitable business which provides the majority of the owners income.

I deceided to work form home in 1964 and have found it to be rewarding.
I wanted to be home to help raise the family.
I found it an easy transition to incorporate our marketing and sales strategies of business to the internet, as it was introduced, and of course with the proliferation of Social media, it would be next to impossible for anyone with a business mindset NOT succeed.
The first necessary job, in my estimation, is to rapidly establish your INFLUENCE and credibility.
Every well developed business mindset will find that an easy path.
Find out where your known customer personas hang out on the web and offer your solutions.
12 years ago I started podcasting 2 focused Talk Shows a month and that provided quick Authority.
Never had to SELL, most interested persons called and wanted more.
Currently, effective Social media content drives several 1,000 daily to one of sites.
Again, NO MAGIC. Just a well designed plan knowing the market and applying action on a regular consistent basis
