    Use a virtual office instead of a regular office so you only pay for the time you need it for a meeting and they answer your phones professionally. The Intelligent Office has locations all over the US so you can use it when you travel too. We use the The IO offices in Atlanta.

    It is easy to get a basic website to promote your business on line up with the tools available and templates available for virtually free with most hosting sites like GoDaddy. We are using Wild Apricot to build a membership site for virtually nothing.

    If you are not busy meeting competition, you are creating it. “I cannot do it” never accomplished anything yet. If you can dream it, you can do it, nice post.

    It is extremely interesting for me to read this blog. Thanks for it. I like such topics and anything connected to them. I would like to read more soon. By the way, rather good design that site has, but don’t you think design should be changed once in a few months?
