Ref - “The Newbie's Guide to Personal Computer Maintenance” 5) Choose a domain that is short, yet specific to what it is you intend to do with your business. Do not pay for any less than a two-year term. You have to allow yourself more than a year to succeed. Choose a web host that caters to commerce. Never ever choose a free hosting package for a business. 6) If you don’t have any experience with web design, sign up to receive newsletters from any web design source and browse forums for answers to your questions. Ref - “The Newbie’s Guide to Small Business Web Design” 7) Once you have bought your domain and begun building your business, make a point to be thorough with regards to basics of web design, such as having rich content, and acquiring inbound links to your site. The “backend” of your web site, meaning placement of keywords and tags, will eventually help your inevitable success. Be a perfectionist here, but don’t spend too much of your time trying to be #1 on search engines. Let your future webmaster worry about that.
The key point to remember here is to allow yourself time to succeed without wasting time trying to be a millionaire tomorrow. Plan to be in business for fifty years, and go from there. Save your first home page as a reminder to show down road to your many employees as to where you were. Tell them all how you started out with nothing and made company “what it is today” from this simple beginning.
Don’t run human race, but break free from rat race, by making your move.

Employment and relationships with co workersWritten by Josh Nay
Continued from page 1
manipulated with a sexual pretext. Not a very hard-drawn line in my opinion. But, sexual harassment is a problem as well as relationships among co-workers, often latter magically transforming into former. Keeping a respectable distance from lives of your peers at work is key. How you present yourself to them will directly influence how they respond towards you. If you show interest in their life away from work, and start developing a relationship, emotions and insecurities will soon start influencing your interactions, and main problem will be fact that neither of you will be aware of it. Our thoughts are modified by our feelings all time and when that happens it seems everybody sees it but us. Be friendly but not overtly open, avoid pet names and personal e-mails with co-workers. Always keep in mind fact that they will respond to how you associate with them. I’m not saying having friends at work will get you fired, im just demonstrating how sometimes over-friendliness can be Detrimental to your success.
