So, if I may, pick a method and give it all you have. If you start like I did, you won’t rally have anything to lose, but time, and a few dollars (assuming you want to buy a domain and host it somewhere).
Yet another great episode. Kudos to you Lewis! I really liked your explanation about the importance of learning to sale.
