Ashopping We Will Go ...

There was a time not too long ago that I tried my hand at running my own business from home. I quit my job, leaving the safe comforts of a regular salary and decided to run my own design company from home. It worked out pretty well at first. I did have a group of my previous clients who supported me by bringing their business to me.

Things looked pretty good though I had to handle everything right down from client service, conceptualization, copywriting, production right up to being the delivery man myself! On top of that I even had to manage my own billings and invoicing and worse still, keeping the accounts up to date. Now, that was a hassle. I have no knowledge in accounting whatsoever.

As the work load went up and I had to handle everything on my own, I started getting lazy, besides working from home was never my strong suite. I longed for help but I was too cheapskate to hire anyone. I'm too fussy a person to work with but I also wanted the business to grow. I was wishing for something that would help me considerably without having to depend on anyone, maybe some online help.

At that time, there were not many ways for one to actually do online business stuff. Unlike today where I found out about this pretty good shopping cart software company called Ashop Commerce which offers a decent ecommerce software that would have made my life a lot easier back then. Ashop Commerce may not benefit someone like me but if you're thinking of owning your own store selling stuff and need a reliable shopping cart software, then look no further.

There are several reasons why going to Ashop would benefit you. For one, their affordable pricing, secondly, their easy to use interface and helpful tools to get your online business up to date and relevant with useful advice that makes setting up your online business such a breeze.

Well, I'm no longer running my own business, didn't have the discipline to stick to it, but maybe if I had stuff like this back then to help me out, I may now still be my own boss instead of working for someone!

If you're looking to start your own little online business, then check out Ashop today and take a 10 day free trial with them. You just might be surprised :)


  1. I'd love to open my own online shop but so scared I won't make any profit! How to do business when one's a coward. Maybe I just stick to being a secretary... sigh!

  2. Sweetiepie, sometimes you got to throw caution to the wind and go ahead and do what you feel like doing. To hell with the consequences ... LOL!
