Getting my Internet Business Started

By Brenda Pagel
Posted Sunday, December 19, 2004

I have a little experience in the business world, but not much. I was a Mortgage Broker for about a year. That’s about it. Before that, I was a delivery driver for five years.

I was going from job to job trying to find the “right” one. Busting my butt for corporate companies who really only cared about numbers. How much I can make or do for them. I was just another number in their system.

That’s when I started working on the Internet. I had been thinking about it for quite a while. I was very skeptical. The way I see it though, it’s no different than working for a large company as a Mortgage Broker, except I’m the boss!

I started my business online a little over a year ago. I stopped for a while, because of unforeseen circumstances. Then I got back into it.

I am involved in several affiliate programs.

•Six Figure Income

•Push Button Publishing


•The Internet Marketing Center

•Sure Fire Marketing

Which can all be found at: (

•TrafficOasis (

Past failure and disappointments have motivated me. Listening to the successful entrepreneurs helps to motivate me, also. I know it can be done. It takes willpower, faith and a little elbow grease.

I have an office set up across the hall from my bedroom. I use a Pentium 4, 256 MB Gateway computer with a printer and scanner. I recently switched from dial-up Internet connection to cable modem. That makes a huge difference. I will never go back to dial-up!

I do most of my business online. I have done some mailing. The Internet is so much quicker and easier. I do prefer using the Internet for most of my business.

The one thing I don’t like about the Internet is the fact that I don’t get to deal with people face-to-face. But that’s why I do a small part-time job away from home. And that job is only 5 minutes from home. I don’t like long commutes. Who does?

I do mostly publishing on the Internet. Promoting my business and affiliate sites. And when doing this, I learn some really neat stuff about other people.

I have learned that all walks of life can work from home on the Internet. ANYONE can do it. It all depends how much a person wants it.

If you are tired of having a boss telling you what to do, this is the best way to work for yourself. There’s no inventory, no commute, no alarm clock, and best of all, NO BOSS. I’m the boss. If I fail, it’s my doing. Same goes for success.

There’s no wrong way of working on the Internet. You learn from trial and error. In other words, you learn as you go.

There’s no better time than today to start your own Internet business. I wish I hadn’t stopped when I did. If I would have kept going, I would be way ahead the game right now. But I’m glad I’m back now. And this time, for good!

My advice to anyone getting started in an Internet Business…don’t quit. There are a lot of resources out there. You can get the answers to your questions. There are a lot of people, like myself, willing to help others get started.

There’s a real good book to help you out. Think & Grow RICH by Napoleon Hill. A lot of people that have become Millionaires have read this book.

When I am researching, I find people on the Internet to be very interesting. Everybody has such different experiences. Different products are fun to learn about too. There are sooo many different tools on the Internet. The Internet is truly amazing. It’s a huge place.

I have one website and many affiliate sites. My website was built for me by, Stone Evans. And he will build a website for anyone…for FREE. He’s a great guy. He calls himself, “The Home Biz Guy”. (

The best time for me to be working on the Internet is early morning through mid-afternoon. My 14 year old son is at school and it’s quiet in the house. So when he gets home from school, I can spend time with him, making sure he does his homework and practices his sports.

My goal for the future is to make a six figure income within the next five years. But no matter what, I will not give up!
