The 10 Most Important Lessons I've Learned as an Online Business Owner
5 Mistakes to Avoid When Starting an Online Business

When I started my first business I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. I took a hobby and transformed it into my full-time job in about two years -- something I never imagined would happen in my life until I started my business.

One of my biggest tips for you if you’re starting a blog or a business is to find support.
