Soon to be WAHM

Hi all -

I'm new here - my goal is to be a WAHM (I've got a 3.5 month old son) in about a year when I get out of the Navy. So far I've started a few ventures, and I'm hoping something will take off within the year. I've got a website selling Zippo lighters (my husband has a Zippo collection dating back over 60 years - that's what gave me the idea). If anyone has any suggestions for improvements, please let me know (www.zipponation.com).

Also, I've done some affiliate promotion with Google AdWords and Clickbank (I may expand that if the current campaign goes well). I've sold lots of products on eBay, and dabbled in a few other websites. I'm always looking for a good product to promote on the Internet - the web programming, advertising and search engine optimization is the easy part for me (I'm a computer pro / network administrator at work)...finding a good quality product to sell has proven to be more challenging.

What I really want to do is real estate investing (buying and reselling distressed properties, foreclosures, etc.) so if anyone is doing that successfully I'd love to hear from you.

I suppose if something proves to be lucrative, I'll stick with it. Any and all suggestions would be great. And if anyone needs help promoting their websites let me know - I'd be glad to help. Thanks!

Wow - sounds like you have a lot of creative ideas. That is so awesome and will certainly help you get off on a good foot.
I am with MomExecs and love it. The opportunities and doors it has opened for me and my family have been incredible.

See you around on the "board"
