I live in Mexico, and come from a middle-low class family (and that's third world middle-low class) and all my life I've had in me this entrepreneurial dream which I have not been able to make true. Three years ago I left my full-time work to pursue a freelancing career as a web developer and I'm doing ok (I was doing great before the recession, though).
Now, I don't want to be a freelancer all my life. I really want to be an entrepreneur and have a startup but I'm feeling like I'm doing everything wrong. I'm starting to think that I aim very high for a guy in my position. Two years ago I launched Twimbler (a service that turns your twitter stream into a tumble blog) and this past year I started a WordPress Theme Store with a very innovative perspective. None of this projects have really taken off.
I know that if I've put more time and effort into those ideas they could be great, but I don't have the necessary resources and down here we don't have VCs or even YCombinators. I can't even think of moving to the valley because USA won't give me a visa.
Today I'm a bit depressed. I have so many ideas and I know that I'm talented and eager to learn but I don't know where to go from here.
Do you think that I should give up already?
Sorry for the long message.
