Well Janine, I haven't been approached by anyone in my family, no one has their own business. I only get approached when someone can't do something on the computer, or it's not working right, that type of thing.
But I was asked by a friend of mine to set up an online business for her which would be a website, shopping cart, etc.
Now I have to say I have been trying to get her to start an online business for the longest time. She is a teacher and she really hates technology.
So one day, out of the blue, she asked me to set up an online business for her. She really has no idea of how much work there is to setting this up.
She offered to pay me a percentage, I guess for students that sign on with her, but that doesn't work for this situation. I sent her back an email explaining that this would take a lot of work and time, which I did not have.
So I found a VA who did this type of work who also offered different packages along with various features.
I sent that to her and that was the last I ever heard about this request.
I guess she saw what was really involved and how much it cost and decided not to go with it.
The thing is a lot of people have no idea what we do and why it costs what it does.
But if technology was so easy, everyone would be doing it.
