Hmmm…Maybe I Can


If you looked at the title, you’re probably thinking ‘What?’  Well, let me get into this a bit.  I decided (about a year or so ago) that I want to make a living online.  A real living.  It’s been slow going at first, but I’ve definitely put some extra cash in my pocket.  I know that if I fill my head with enough knowledge (mostly technical gunk) that someday I can run my business from some little island. I don’t want to have to see any of my customers.  I want my toes to be in the sand and the laptop, well, on my lap.  It’s hard to have the time to really dedicate to my online businesses right now because I’m hangin’ with those little chickies.  But I figured I had some time to get it started, and when they both got to school, I could really put my nose to the grindstone.

I’m seeing lots of opportunities with regards to affiliating and e-commerce, but I’m just lackin’  in the skilz.  I don’t have the time to actually go to school and learn a bunch of programming stuff.  I also don’t have the cash to do it.  I’ve recently checked out this site about Elearning. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for!  It’s inexpensive and has all the classes I would want to take.  Because I don’t really want (or need) a degree, I can go and learn all the stuff I WANT to learn, and not have to take all those extra ‘filler’ classes.

If I get through a class or two (or three, or four), I should be able to set up a website exactly the way I want.  I think I could squeeze one class in while the kids are in summer rec (maybe), but definitely in the fall.  Chloe will be in preschool three days a week.

Someday, someday I’ll be on that tropical island.  Tony can have his little tiki bar, and I’ll have the laptop.  I’ll get there.  Now as for the rock hard abs that I want?  Well, that may be a little more difficult.  But I’m daring to dream :)



  1. Excellent post, excellent attitude and excellent writing!
    My dream is similar, but I don’t think I will be on an island, more free to go where i want when I want. Perhaps I can visit you on your island. I will bring cupcakes!
