I am now 24 years old soon to be 25. I have worked for a fairly decent company over the past 2 years and have had a GREAT boss while I was in college. Before college I was in high school where I created a few websites. Nothing dynamic as what can be done today, but something that could have made money. I canceled the site and never saw it again. I created my first website over 10 years ago and what can I show for it? I am at my current job creating web services. I feel more capable on the web than on desktop applications. I feel in tune with the code on the web than on the desktop. In the beginning I was a website creator, I was a fairly new internet user in that time and I never truly implemented a business idea in that time. I never truly made money from any idea that I had except for "the getting paid to surf programs" which were a miserable failure and put a lot of companies out of work.
I remember when I first heard about a guy who was writing about his daily life and it was called blogging. I didn't jump on. I remember hearing about Google adwords and adsense, yet I didn't jump on the bandwagon. I wanted to create a large blogging community. I wanted to use adsense in the community, yet I didn't. I had ideas and never used them.

I am pretty sure there are plenty of people out in the world with billion dollar ideas but have never implemented them. They have never tried making their ideas worth anything. I am here today to say that I have created my first business idea. Its not much and is my first real business idea on the internet in the past 8 years, but I still got it done. I am tired of wasting time. I am tired of not getting things done. I am still working on my ideas and still heading them up. One idea at a time. Baby steps until I can some day quit my day job. Work hours that I choose on time that I choose. I commit my self to getting out of this work environment and I have a personal goal of doing it in under 2 years. I want to move on.
For anyone else out there with an idea, put it into motion. Make it happen. Do good and become successful. Become the person at the party who brags about how you made it big. I want to make it big and get out of my 9-5 job. I hope you do it as well. Don't quit.
