How I ended up in computer classes

I have been in business for about 30 years. I started my first business when I was 15; I had to lie to people about my age to get people to take me seriously. When I finally did turn 21 it was weird, since I had been telling people that for years. Instead of spending $100K on business graduate school (that I didn’t have anyway) I decided to just allow my self to lose $100K learning along the way. Fortunately, I have not lost that much and have made much more than I have lost. It has been a lot more fun doing it this way anyway. Lots of adventures! My husband used to be an engineer and hated it so  he retired at 31 from that career and took over running my biz.  The last two frontiers I still am trying to tame are internet commerce and importing/exporting. I didn’t want to do the internet part, I wanted to hire people. But the people I could afford were a waste of 10 years and I should have just done it myself. My husband, out of desperation, put a site together in a couple of days using a basic software program that came with our server. It was pretty bad but he tried. So here I am doing what I didn’t want to do, which was go to college. I tried doing what I normally do when I want to learn something, which is read and learn the hard way. This ended up being over my head by leaps and bounds. My business is suffering a little because I’m here, but, I am hoping it will be worth it in the end. I have learned more about computers in the last semester then all of my previous knowledge combined. I even learned to type. I had been stubbornly holding out on that.
