I did it. I signed up for the online course on setting up an online store. This was no little investment. This course costs $500. I used $300 from my credit card rewards (I now have $1 left) and sold my dog run, kennels and dog house. I was still $15 short of $500 but I signed up anyway because the price of the course is going up tomorrow. I still have $50 worth of stuff posted on craig's list so when it eventually sells I can pay myself back.
I haven't had much time to read the book that came with the course and I only watched the welcome video. It was nice to look at the forums and read about problems that the other people are having. Everyone is at a different stage so the ones who are farther along can give the rest of us advice. I'm not going to have a lot of time to work on my online business right now but Summer break is coming soon and will be ready to get to work.
