Advice for those considering making their living online:
I gave some quick tips recently on making a living online, which included: Make a plan, but don’t plan too expanded. At some point, you just have to jump in and get started. The sooner that is, the better. After you check out the rest of the tips there, it’s useful to see what other experienced folks from ’round the web have to say about getting started. Here are a few:
Figure out what you want to be known for and how it differs from everyone else out there. next use online tools to be that man or woman – and don’t veer from your individual strengths and talent. Fuse that into the services you supply and the way you engage online to build your business. There’s no room for generalists anymore. We all need to specialize.

Here’s an strange piece of business advice: Set yourself on fire every day. The life of an entrepreneur is full of ups and downs. One day things are exciting; the next we have to face a new hassle.
