Joan Piñon, an I.T. professor, entrepreneur, and blogger, shared her story sometime ago in this blog on how she started her hobby sweets baking site, My Little Baker. It was not an easy task and there way many factors to consider like the website design, among others.
Her hard work paid off. 2006 and 2007 was a great for Joan. As she mentioned in the enclosed video, she made a lot of contacts and friends in the industry. For 2008, she also plans to do her baking business full-time.
Joan is a testimony that a passionate and determined person can indeed take their share of the Web and make something great out of it.
