Things I’ve Learned Running a Digital Agency For a Year

So it has been about a year since I started Look Social. If you did not know Look Social is a full service digital agency that does logo design, web design, social media management, internet marketing and much more. It has been an interesting year starting the company and more and less learning as I go. With ThinkComputers I really never dealt with customers, made up contracts, etc. So there was a lot of learning and I sure have made some mistakes, but that is of course how you learn. Here are some of the biggest things I’ve learned over the past year.

Why I Decided to Live By My Own Rules and How You Can Too

Many people ask me how I got started doing what I’m doing and they story always ends up with me telling them how I took the leap of faith and dropped out of college to build my business and be able to work on it full time. This is scary for a lot of people, and I had no clue that things would work out when I made my decision, but I knew a few things that I wanted out of life and following the “right thing to do” path was not going to allow me to do those things, or at least not right away. Since making that decision I have done things I could have never dreamed about doing before, met some amazing people and most importantly I am my own boss.

How to Turn Your Hobby Into a Business

If you have been reading this blog for a while you probably know that before I was running ThinkComputers full time it was just a hobby. I feel very fortunate that I was able to take a hobby and turn it into a full time job. It’s not often that many people get to do what they love for a living. I’m not sure if I would call myself lucky, because it did take a lot work to get where I am but I guess I feel lucky that my job really does not feel like a real job. The thing is anyone can really do what I do, and anyone can turn their hobby into a business. The thing is, it just takes WORK! I worked on ThinkComputers just for fun, without making any money for almost 4 years before I learned I could make money with it! Here are some tips that should help you turn your hobby into a business.
