Role Models

Name:

Donna

Title:

Owner of Livestock World: a classified advertising magazine on the internet for all breeds of horses, cattle, exotic animals, related business services and more. I also raise Arabian Horses and Highland Cattle on a ranch in So. Oregon.

Path:

I spent 18 years in the automotive business with my husband, doing what he wanted. When we sold, I knew I wanted to do something on my own. I took a class called 'learn about the internet' - got really excited at the possibilities, learned html, formed the idea for Livestock World and away I went! That was two years ago and Livestock World is growing at a great pace. I'm also learning at a great pace, just trying to keep up with the new technology. The most important part is that I'm doing something I like, I'm around people I like (via the web) and I can control part of my life.

Comments:

Since I've been publishing Livestock World I have had articles published in othe r magazines, and even made the front cover of a magazine with my Highland Cattle! I have built confidence in myself and I spend a lot of the time smiling and grinning at my success. No, I'm not rich, but I'm enjoying my life and the people around me. Spend as much time as you can learning to use computers, either in school or at home (or at the library, it's free)! Don't just play games, learn what you can do creating cool stuff. The opportunities are endless - the reins are in your hands.
