I feel that I have to write this. I love small business and I am passionate about helping entrepreneurs succeed and grow their business. As a business owner, I understand how much blood, sweat and tears people put into making their business a success.

The business owner has a friend that can spell “PC”, no budget for technology, bad advice, internal staff gets burdened with IT Support, or the business owners assume that everything is OK with the technology systems. Whatever the situation is, I see it all the time. The company is on the brink of a disaster and the business owners have no idea. Well, that is why I am going to write this blog series. I want to provide business owners with simple

As writers we are often assigned projects or come up with a project of our own to do. What might seem simple can quickly escalate into a full on monumental task. For instance take a recent project I decided to embark on; an eBook about a specific sub-sector of Technology. Believe it or not it was an eBook on the Future of Skateboards, or rather hoverboards of the future.
Looking at the project, I said well piece of cake, I use to ride a skateboard as a kid, all day in fact. I can write an eBook in 2-days right off the top of my head and since it is such an easy project, I can edit it and write it, get the pictures and even format the darn thing in that time.
Well this little project that I thought could be done in 2 days is now into its first day and I am not even 15% done. …Continue reading
Some people are intimidated or unimpressed by cyber schools because they think they are more focused on technology than curriculum.

In part 2, we are going to talk about Firewalls and why you need a great one. Don’t worry if you don’t know what a Firewall is or what it does because I am going to explain everything in very non-technical terms.
Let’s pretend for a minute that the Internet pipe that we talked about in part 1 is a road into a subdivision and all of the houses in that subdivision represent all of the computers in your business. Then let’s pretend that cars on that road represent internet traffic and how it moves in and out of your business. Since our subdivision is not gated, our employees can drive their cars anywhere they want to go AND people that don’t live in your subdivision (ie. Don’t work for your business) can drive into the subdivision. …Continue reading
