Hello Everyone!

I found the link to this forum from Andrew's blog and decided to join in on the excitement.

My name is Todd and I started running businesses as a kid.

The first business I remember was going around the neighborhood selling "Post-Its". I purchased them at a garage sale and sold them for 2-5x purchase price :)

The next business I remember running was adult websites as a freshman in high school. This didn't last long as the laws regarding bulk-email changed, and my 13year old life of earning $1k+ a week was short lived.

Since then I have started running my own websites, imported products from China, and ran an ebay business.

During the last couple of years my websites have started to grow, but recently I was drawn off-track for a year when I went in the "Slow Lane" and got caught up working for a local company (online), and doing projects for people instead of myself. I am just now getting back into putting more time into my websites.

I'm a "tech guy", I know how to build computers, program my own sites, run a linux webserver, etc. Part of my growth problem has been "letting go" so others could do work for me!

Anyway, I'm glad to have found the forum and hope to be able contribute as much as I learn from the site.

Welcome Todd, love the stories. The kids with the lemonade stands, the teens with the porn sites, et al. all seem to end up in the fastlane.

Haha! I find the "adult websites" amusing. I've, um, had some experience in that field (won't go into specifics...I'm not just being a perverted teenage guy.). Anyway, welcome! Good to have an experienced 24 year old here. Looking forward to what you've got to say.
