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.
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.
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.
