I was recently laid off from a marketing position that I held for over 2 years and to be honest I was not all that upset. I knew that I always wanted to work for myself and I knew this was the chance.
I own two 3-family houses in Providence which bring in enough income, but keep me locked down to this area for now until I can afford a management company. I would like a career that gives me the flexibility to travel while still working as long as I have an internet connection. I started two different websites, being BMxcel dot com and LocalFoodandDrinkDeals dot com.
BMxcel (Body Mind Excelerant) is a supplement that I created and have tested that is proven to increase strength and greatly increase your concentration and memory. I have a site (BMxcel dot com) which is not constructed all that well and I have been unable to figure out how to market the supplement properly. Because of these last two issues I have not put the product into production, but I am ready to if I know that I can sell the product.
Local Food and Dink Deals is a site that caters to finding the best food and drink deals for every night of the week. Deals could be $1 drafts on Mondays, two for one dinners on Sunday and so on. I would like to team this application up with a geo based check-in app like foursquare/ gowalla/ yelp and really make it useful. The web site is up and running but is not finished and does not navigate well. The site was built by a team out of India that I found on Elance.
This is a short bio about me and where I am currently. I encourage you to take a look at my sites and leave any and all feedback or suggestions. If you are a web designer and are looking for a new partnership/ venture please let me know as I'm currently looking. Thanks for reading!
