The benefits of having a mentor are clear. You’ll get proven information, tailored to suit you. A mentor can also help you avoid common pitfalls and essentially put you on the fast track to success.

Need Inspiration? Let Yourself Get Bored!

Apr 16, 2014 by

Entrepreneurs talk of all sorts of things that sparked their inspiration and led them to create their business. From an apple falling from a tree and knocking them on the head to solving a irritating problem to just plain and simple seeing a gap in the market.

Doing so will make it much more fun when it comes to running your website. However, saying that, my passions have only fueled a handful of my business – such as AlphaForecast (I was an active trader) and Beautiful Tribute (people needed a completely free memorial website).

 

Many of my other projects came to life after I saw a gap in the market which then developed a new passion.

Google have been dominating search for over a decade. And rather than back that up with stats, just ask your mother (or grandmother) to ‘Google it’. If they know what you’re talking about, that’s as good evidence as any that Google is the reigning and undisputed search heavyweight champ.

Nov 21, 2013 by

Outsourcing plays a big part in helping me to run multiple businesses in a diverse range of niches.

 

As a result, I outsource loads of different tasks to different types of freelancer and I’ve tried almost all of the platforms out there. From Elance to RentACoder (before it was named vWorked and acquired) to oDesk, Freelancer.com and more.
