As we go into the weekend we suggest four things that you should be doing every day to make the balance between your work and your personal life better. http://bit.ly/2jx0b5j
The pace of life seems to be ever increasing. There never seems to be enough time to accomplish everything you need to do, both in your work life and your personal life. Time seems to fly by, and you have that nagging feeling that you are losing control of how you spend your time. You seem to be more in survival mode and spending too much time on activities that are not meaningful and not contributing to accomplishing meaningful goals. However, i...

It's a new year & time to take a look at yourself, not just your #startup. How can you become a better #leader? http://bit.ly/2hQr7uk 
Your e-commerce firm is thriving. You have a website that is a sales magnet, and revenue is steadily increasing. You are proactive and monitor your website’s performance and collect data on key metrics. You no longer think of your firm as a start-up and are planning to hire more staff to keep up with your steady growth. You are transitioning to using a more formal approach to run your company, and you want to be an effective leader to motivate yo...

No matter how successful your business is, there is always room for improvement, so here are a few ...

A Year in Review - There where some major website crashes in 2016. It may be "“It’s déjà vu all over again” but what can you do in 2017 to make sure your business is protected? http://bit.ly/2iYYQDL
Well, 2016 has been another banner year for major website crashes. Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, such as the hugely disruptive one on Dyn, were on the rise, but many of these crashes were preventable.

Four tips to help your marketing message go viral. http://bit.ly/2h6S2lf
Viral marketing has been used successfully for about 20 years. In 1996, Hotmail began to add this tagline to the bottom of each email sent by its users: Get your free e-mail at Hotmail. Within 18 months, the company signed up 12 million new users. In 1999, well before Facebook, YouTube and other social media existed, the producers of The Blair Witch Project used online message boards to drive traffic to their website promoting the movie.
