Stay in your Chair
At a baseball game recently, I saw a 10 year old boy with his glove, staring intently at batter after batter, waiting on the foul ball that he just knew would be coming his way. He wasn't distracted by the noise around him, or the people stepping over him to get concessions. He wasn't tempted by the gift shop, or the kids club house. I'm sure it wasn't that he didn't find those things interesting. More than likely he did. But what he really wanted was on that field, and if he left his seat, he could have missed his chance.

How To Protect Your Email Address Junk email is fast becoming the scourge of the Internet. I understand that if there was no junk email the Internet would run as much as 50% faster ! So, when browsing the Internet and your email address is requested for any reason, be wary - particularly if there is nothing stating how the information will be used.

DFM Can Help Startups and VC's Make Money Sooner
Venture capitalists invest in new and rapidly growing companies that have very significant growth potential. Part of their role includes assisting companies in the development and commercialization of new products. To make a startup firm profitable, it is critical that the VC help the firm develop products that have significant profit margins. While business plans always show significant profit margins, the product cost estimates in the business plans can rarely be met using the first designs. In these cases Design for Manufacturability (DFM) can help close the gap between the actual cost and the target cost found in the business plan.

The Art of Negotiation
According to the dictionary, to "negotiate" means "to confer with another so as to arrive at the settlement of some matter." Yet, it is a fact that nearly 75% of individuals faced with having to conduct crucial negotiations do not realise success at their negotiation efforts and rarely have a clue as to how to win more during a negotiation. Instead, most negotiators have learned only how to push against others, criticising and attacking rather than identifying one another's strong points. Typically, criticism, rather than creativity, has become the norm during most negotiating efforts.

If they only want to run your ad once, you could always include some of your ads in the e-book.

Once you've got the sequence of the stroke right, you and your boat slip forward through the water and build speed and momentum. If you push when you should be pulling, the boat goes backwards, or, even worse, you lose your balance and fall into the bottom of the boat.

If you operate several websites, each with its own domain name, signing up of separate hosting accounts can be an expensive proposition.

The solution is to open a reseller account.

It is, however, relatively the same as any other business, and is subject to the same laws and regulations that govern any business, no matter what the size.

Design Your Business The Way You Want
Whether you're starting a new business or developing an existing one, if you want to build it up, first you need to design it.

Revealing the Roots: The Process of Building Brand
How is branding different than marketing? Branding is not so much different from marketing as it is an element of marketing. We think of marketing as a tree; the brand is the roots, holding the tree in place and providing constant energy.

In this way, brand is positioned as the basis for any marketing initiative.

How a Book is Born: One Author's Story
Not all books come out whole, all at once. In fact, most books ease out little by little. They have strange and wondrous beginnings. Some come from speeches, some come from articles or short stories.
