Good perspective ---thanks!!
Knowledge is indeed power. And that includes knowing when to do things, and when to let someone else do them. It includes knowledge of what we don`t know. It includes knowing how to "pick our battles," and the famous Kenny Rogers line from the Gambler, knowing "when to hold `em, and when to fold `em," (a reference to hands of cards in poker).
The pursuit of knowledge for its own sake is interesting, but it isn`t at all the same as gathering knowledge for a particular purpose. It sounds as if you have in mind to become a professional Web developer some time in the future. If that`s true, then aside from DYI sites, you also should be taking training courses on the technology.
However; that`s not the pathway you first discussed---that of offering career counseling. :-)
Well, I had a plan in my mind--- like after my first venture gets running, I will focus on my second venture which again is going to be a web based venture and also I have couple of other ideas if for some reason my second venture doesnt come to the surface. Even if my other ventures/ideas are not purely web based--- having a website to globalize and market my products/services-- definitely can give advantage, right!
And looking at my current situation, hiring a web pro will cost me a fortune. So only options available for me i guess are-- get a good business partner (probably a web pro or someone with knowledge about developing websites) OR get myself trained in developing websites. I guess both will be advantageous in long run, right?
I greatly appreciate your time and advice and I apologize for confusion and not being very clear in my previous posts.
