While I’m currently taking classes to earn an Associates of Applied Science in Programming at Ivy Tech Community College, I try to use my business as a resource from time to time.
This semester, I get to use it for something I’ve needed to do and spent countless hours doing. Rebuilding my website. While I was happy with what I had, I knew I could have a better designed one that might draw in some clients and some revenue. Without some basic skills, what I had was the best that I could muster. This semester I am taking CINS-102. It is essentially a class that teaches you XHTML and CSS.
We haven’t done much in this class as of yet, but I can see the momentum starting to build. We’ve mainly had tremendous amounts of reading each week with smaller projects in class. Our project due this week is to find 5 url’s that we like and select one we want to use for a basis of a new website. What a perfect opportunity for my website to be re-born!
My financial plan this year is to save any money I make. I plan on saving as much as possible. I did the math last night and found out I have personally spent over $3000 on expenses for my business. I hope to eventually repay that debt.
If things are good this year, I may put my new and improved website back up.
