Disgusted, I decided to do something about it by trying to make a legitimate online business during the month of September. I settled on using an affliate program, selling Geek-themed TShirts online (MilitantGeek.com), and trying to leverage social media to build something of value.
I`m currently blogging about the whole process; a nerve racking decision. There is always the possibility of failing miserably and having the evidence in front of the entire world. However, even if the project doesn`t reach its goal I think that by at least showing people what not to do it will be worthwhile. And really, with such a low upfront investment there really isn`t any excuse not to experiment with these online models.
I`d really like to get feedback from the vast and knowledgable SuN community. What has gone right? Where are my britches showing? What are other options to consider?
