PG Carr really great pictureHello I am PG Carr, owner of Handy Web Guy LLC, PqHost Internet Services and the founder of the Carr Wellness Foundation. I have been self employed since March 22nd, 2002 – 2pm! That is when i was laid off from my corporate job and the adventure of having my own full time business began.

Although the road has been rocky and full of all kinds of challenges, sleepless nights and other things I would not trade my experience over the last decade for anything. I have learned so much and my career is far better than if I had remained at that job.

On this site, I’d like to show you how to do “your own thing”. All the things you are going to need to consider, brainstorm, calculate and determine in order to be successful as a self employed business owner. Remember – there is no job like your own!!
