I have got a lot done since my last post. I have 1 site that has gone live (MadameWiladina.com) after 4 months work. It is an online store that sells lingire. So far the feedback has been very positive.
The other website I am working on is a site that is another online store. This one is for selling artwork. As with the MadameWIladina site, this one is using Commerce Kickstart2. They do look a lot similar (since I used the same default template for both sites) but under the hood both sites are quite a bit different.
MadameWiladina is built from the Demo store (since both are designed for selling clothing) so I reused a lot of the code and did not have to customize much of the site but for the Art-Store I started from scratch (after having to figure out how to get Commerce Kickstart to load without the Demo Store under Aegir).
Because I started from scratch most everything setup on the site was my work and believe it or not, while doing this I started to feel confident in what I was doing. Maybe after 10 months of working up to doing this as a full time gig I am starting for get my confidence. We will see how this works out.
