Do You Avoid Keyword Research?
Keyword research makes writing your blog posts easier; plus keywords tell your reader exactly what your post is about; and they help the search engines find and index your posts.

Because they hurry past keyword research which is essential to building an online blogging business.There Is No Scarcity – Only Opportunity
Run towards challenges – and not away from fear. One of the biggest reasons why I blog about small business, is to inspire people to become business owners and not workers or managers. But I mostly try to inspire young people, because it takes a few years to discover you passion and turn it into a recipe for profits.Entrepreneurs – Why Is Mentoring Important for You?
Entrepreneurship is a lonely journey. There is no boss to report to. There is no one to set your metrics. A mentor is a sounding board who will help you at every step of your journey, not only with your professional targets but also in the umpteen personal battles that you fight within. A mentor is an expert who has been through the life cycle of an entrepreneur, and now can help you with his/her experience. A mentor is usually a serial entrepreneur who has built businesses and now is in a position to help you prevent making the same mistakes which he/she had made as an entrepreneur. This article will help you understand some of the positives of having a mentor, and how you can benefit from them.Sally Hayson The Successful Business Woman

Most people don’t like to talk about how good they are. It feels uncomfortable and unnecessary – it’s better to be modest and let other people decide if you’re any good at what you do, right? Wrong. It doesn’t work that way. People can only experience how good your service or product is AFTER they’ve purchased it. But they won’t purchase anything if they don’t trust it’ll be worth their investment. You have to tell and show them the value of your service or product – how else will they know it’s any good? Most people – especially women – find this difficult and unpleasant. It can feel like boasting. But it’s not. There’s really no need to brag or pump up your ego. You don’t have to make yourself bigger than you are – but you don’t have to make yourself smaller than you are either! Just show people the REAL you – INCLUDING your talents, your gifts, and the value you deliver.Creating a Sustainable Business: The Four Critical Elements of a Business That Works

A common criticism levelled at Open-Source and Freeware is that it often offers a ‘dumbed down’ version of the main commercial software. To that I say ‘Who Cares’. If a freeware accounting system gets you through the first three years of your business you will have done well. At the end, when you go out on the market for commercial software you will have a much better idea of what you want from your package, and if you end up buying from the original source, well, well done them.5 Key Benefits to Growing Your Wellness Business
