    Post Hello to my all new small business and entrepreneur friends!

    Hello all, I am writing this to introduce myself and getting to know all of you as well. I have a bachelor's of commerce and I had a short run in the IT field (although I am not an IT person at all hahaha) but unfortunately I was not able to continue or let's just say it was not easy to continue. In 2011-2012 I was diagnosed with an eye disease where you progressively lose your vision. I am currently considered legally blind and I can only see a tiny bit through a tunnel vision in my right eye. I decided to find alternatives to work from home or any other way that would be suitable with my condition. In 2013, I joined my friend on a little journey helping him with his business which provides marketing and web solutions...this was only for experience purposes as I didn't gain alot of money out of it. Then I moved on to becoming an Internet Marketer and ohhh boy it was a long journey of experience and gaining knowledge. I would say that I am at an intermediate level and I can def guide newbies to a strategic path that will save them alot of time and effort. I also would love for people to help me and guide me through this path as the learning curve never ends. I wish you all the best in your business and hope to see you all a successful journey.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I've met one other person who had that eye disease you're talking about. I forget what it's called.

    How's the internet marketing business coming along?

    That does not sound familiar. She was early twenties when she started losing her sight. But, she was able to drive with special classes.

    Well, a couple of reasons... When we look at what someone is doing, it looks easy, but, in reality, it's not. There's more to selling houses than just putting up a sign, showing a buyer a house and them buying it. I just couldn't stand working with the people and, especially, the other agents! For the people, buying and selling was a life and death situation for them. If you can't show them in an hour then they'll just go and find someone else who will. They have ZERO respect for your time. "What's that? You're going on vacation? Well... why can't you show me houses?! I need to buy a house! I don't understand! blah blah blah" And the agents... most of them can't tell you their left and from their right, so you not only have to do you work, but you get to do their work for them! Fun.

    And, I was going through a divorce and with everything going on I decided it was time for a complete life change. :-)
