About Richard Rawlings (Rick) Smith

My mission is to share with you how I'm building my online business so we can create the online businesses of our dreams together

My name is Richard Rawlings Smith. I’ve spent many years in the world of IT and now I’m transitioning to the world of online business. I’m excited to share with you my entire journey as I make this move.

I began my IT experience in the U.S. Navy almost 50 years ago. I started out working on computer hardware. From there, I moved into software development. I was able to learn several computer languages, some of which I still use today. Along the way, I also gained experience in networking and website technology.

I learned how to build websites in WordPress and other platforms.

Making The Shift from IT to Online Business

Now, you might be wondering, “If Rick’s already entrenched in the IT world, what’s driving this transition to online business?” It’s a valid question, and one I’m excited to answer. As a lifelong learner and someone who has been captivated by the possibilities of IT, I discovered a new passion – the world of online business.

This shift represents a thrilling chapter in my life. It’s a journey that combines my technical expertise with the boundless potential of the digital marketplace. I’m not just here to explore this new frontier for my benefit, but also to share this adventure with you.
