Today is the day. It is done. Off and running. Let’s rock and roll. Insert any other cliche indicating the start is occurring. I’m excited. Tired. Enthused. Nervous. Pumped. You name it. I’m on that proverbial emotional roller coaster today. Queue the smattering of applause in the background.
Earlier today I launched my business publicly on the web. Cap Web Solutions LLC is officially open for business. The ubiquitous “under construction” page banner is now gone – the effective widget having been deactivated. The SEO widget is turned on and, hopefully, feeding the big G lots of metadata for a mid-afternoon snack.
To do list: Posted an announcement on LinkedIn ✔, Twitter ✔, Google+ ✔, Facebook ✔, and sent to Mom (since she’s not on any of these platforms) ✔.
I’ve set up a unique Google+ page and Twitter feed for the business. I’m not sure if this is a reasonable thing to do or not, but I will try it for a while. I may find that it’s just too much to manage and revert back to using my personal social platforms for these conversations. Do you have any experience in this area? What have you found to be the optimal solution in your world? Feel free to let me know in the comments. I’d love to get your input. Oh, and the new site does have a blog. That will be much more technology and business focused, but it is another path to populate with ideas.
It feels like it has been an extremely long time to get to this point, but in retrospect, I’ve only been aggressively pursuing it for just over 2 months. I’m still fine-tuning the business plan, with the help of the Chester County SCORE office. The official LLC registration paperwork from the Commonwealth is “in process”. The Fed knows I’m real. Oh boy. I’m in talks with a potential established business partner, to see how we might work together. It sounds very promising, but still at the early stages.
This new opportunity is now formally past the “exploratory” stage and into the execution stage. Since I expect that this will be a continuously evolving world for me, I plan to keep on putting my thoughts together here. Please stop back and visit from time to time. I do appreciate it.
Thanks for your love and support.
All the best to you…
