It occurred to me the other day, that so many people today liken their businesses to the way they eat – fast. Think about it. All over the web we are inundated with… make $1000’s of dollars a day, make $10,000 a month, make a million by the end of the year. Everyone is looking for the magic formula or the magic bullet to get rich quick…fast. They want their business to succeed in the time it takes to get their hamburger or chicken sandwich. No wait, no delay of gratification. I want it now, and I want it without having to work at it. I want to sit back and rake in the dollars, my way.
With today’s economy, and the layoffs occurring as a result of these economic conditions, more and more people are opting to start their own business. Due to the low start up costs, the prevalence of home-based businesses is on the rise, many of these started by husband and wife teams.
Many people throughout the life of online marketing have utilized
the use of Kaizen. As a matter of fact I would venture a guess that
almost all successful businesses in today’s markets are using it.
Which leaves one to wonder, what is Kaizen? Well, to put it in a
layman’s words it is the practice of continuous improvement; the
fact that we should never be satisfied with what we have, and instead
always press onwards to improve what we have to something better.
So many people want to start a business today and be rich tomorrow. Sorry, people it doesn’t happen that way.
Journaling For Fun and Profit!
How many times have you heard or uttered this phrase in the last 5 years or so. As a “reformed accountant” this phrase makes me cringe more than any other business euphemism being espoused today.
Many people in business heaved a sigh of relief when email began to take over most of their day-to-day correspondence. Processing business letters – even today – is fiddly and fussy, compared with the blissful simplicity of email.
TCO (Total Cost Ownership) is the buzzword in today’s business world. This metric helps enterprise managers assess direct and indirect costs and benefits derived from their investment on IT components and services. A vital component of overall TCO is database management. All information-centric applications need databases for data storage. Also, the storage demands of small and mid-sized companies are growing rapidly, as more emphasis is given on data backup and long-term archival of data disaster recovery.
