You are awesome at what you do! You are a talented web designer/web developer.
That’s probably one of the main reasons you would like to own your own web design business.
There’s soo much more to running a successful web business that having talent in a specific area. There’s marketing, sales, invoicing, bookkeeping, finding clients, dealing with nightmare clients and more.
When I started out (being an introvert) I consumed almost anything I could get my hands on. Books, websites, newsletters, courses etc. Of course some of those resources make big promises like “Double your freelancing income“, “Land $10,000 projects with theses simple steps” etc etc. A piece of advice – if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. So to be clear I’m not here to make you any get rich promises.
As the years went on in my business I had some awesome experiences and yes made some mistakes too. So I wanted to create a website that I wish I could have turned to for help along the way – without the promises of getting you rich with little to no effort. Starting a business is already hard enough for anybody!, add having an introverted personality in and extroverted dominant world to the mix.
I’m Eric. I am a self-employed, freelance web designer/developer and founder of Silver 6 Media. I create (exclusively WordPress) websites for clients that I’m proud to show off.
If you’re like me, you are an introvert. For those not familiar with what an introvert is – it basically refers to a person that tends to be more quiet, reserved and introspective. They aren’t usually the person at a party yelling ‘Look at me!’. To get my batteries re-charged I need a bit of alone time. Some people are the opposite – they love being the center of attention and get their energy from being around lots of people – often. Neither is right or wrong..just different.
Things I enjoy are:
- Designing and Developing websites
- Learning all things web and web related
- Helping people with their business problems/challenges
- Working on my business Silver 6 Media
More on a personal note:
- I am a Husband and Dad
- Love my tech gadgets and learning how to get them most out of them
- I like to create/build things
- Lover of GOOD coffee – Starbucks French Roast is my regular caffeine source.
- Live in Brantford Ontario Canada
I can’t wait to share some resources to help you grow your web business.
