Learn something new
I’ll confess to being a bit of control-freak, and this doesn’t exactly combine well with technophobia when you’re developing a web-site!
The addition of a touch of cynicism towards self-proclaimed web gurus didn’t help either. I wanted to know what was being done, and why. I discovered that my cynicism wasn’t always misplaced, but happily also found people generous enough to share their knowledge and point me in the right direction.
Within three months of launch, www.octarine.co.za had achieved an Alexa Ranking of just over 700 000 internationally. To put that in perspective, Unilever South Africa has a web ranking of over 1 million, the South African website for Woman & Home magazine has a ranking of 1.2 million.
But the sense of achievement I got wasn’t just about the numbers. It was hugely empowering to take on a project that was outside my comfort zone, forcing myself to learn new skills and see it work.
