Greetings and welcome to my new blog about the joys and challenges of building your own business. I’m Frank Mason and I live in York in North East England. This is my first post at ownbizbuzz and my first using WordPress.com.
So what is ownbizbuzz about? After three decades working for other people in IT, management and sales I have now reached a point where I have a driving desire to build my own business.
About two decades ago I had a couple of brief adventures in building my own business, but like most first attempts, they were not a great success. At the time the need to be my own boss was not a high priority, and I remained in the relative comfort of a corporate career. In recent years I have been self employed in direct sales, but still working for other people’s companies.
I have recently started two home based businesses and I’m on a steep learning curve. In this blog, I intend to share my ideas, experiences and the lessons I learn along the way. I’d love you to join me here, share your own ideas and we can learn together as we go.
