Let’s Talk Timelines & Real Expectations for Projects

I had the privilege of working in a plans & implementation work center during my military career and when you see things from behind the scenes of any project it can bring clarity and anxiety. That was the military though, and it's important to add that I had handled hundreds of projects with loose timelines and tight ones over the last 2 decades. There were times I would expect something to be done by a certain date but had no [...]

Developing A Portfolio From Nothing To Build Work Experience

The old adage of "You have to give a little to get a little" is what comes to mind with the portfolio development process. There are a good number of people on freelancing sites such as UpWorks and oDesk that are trying to learn how to nab that first job. Those are the people that come well prepared with a reasonably filled out portfolio along with a sales pitch. The downside is it's all pitch with no portfolio, a website, some [...]

Defining The Size Of The Podcast Market

This question was one of my favorites that came from Quora and while I answered it there, it's probably better that I take a deeper dive into this. My goal with my content is to give the deeper dives here while the other places I write get the abbreviated submissions.I need a reason for people to want to visit my site, listen to my podcast, or watch my videos. Now let's get into this topic of how many stars are [...]

Military Serving Overseas & You Want to Open a Small Business

I don't hide that I serve overseas in South Korea, but I don't discuss it a whole lot either because I don't create content about it, and it's not for long as I retire at the end of this year. What is important is that I searched for months, asked experts, and still came up empty handed on how to open a LLC while serving overseas with no stateside address. I finally know how, and I did it so it's [...]

What Free Ecommerce Platform Is Good For Digital Downloads

I have a couple stores that I sell downloadable goods and physical goods in. Sometimes selling digital downloads is the easiest way to go if you are a programmer selling plugins or a graphic designer selling some illustrations. The question is, what, where, and how do you sell them? Apple takes 30% commission rates for everything they sell on behalf if the content creators, and other marketplaces are very similar if not even more greedy when it comes to their [...]

Change Is Not For The Weak, And It’s Hard Too

After speaking to a distressed website owner this morning about how some people are leaving the website after a massive upgrade, I decided to write about the topic of change. She told me about a woman who wrote to her and said she was done and that she hated the new website. Then told me about several conversations she had with others about how it's about time they got something new and were in love with the change. The simple [...]

Know What Facebook Spam Looks Like In Groups

I admin around 20 different Facebook groups and I used to be terrible at finding, ignoring, and blocking SPAM. I would get a couple requests a day from SPAM and I could usually figure out if it was legit but once in a while it would still get through. Once my groups started growing I got on the radar of a lot more SPAM'rs and it sucked. Sometimes one would get through even if I was sure that the account [...]

Godaddy Domain Renewals Are Expensive, But Everyone Else Is Too

I hate dealing with domain renewals because they cost a lot of money and it's a distraction to check which domains need to be renewed and when, plus the endless emails warning me about product expiration. I don't enjoy coupon shopping or trying to figure out another way to save a buck either. I have been with GoDaddy since 2005 and I am not overly fond of them but it's like anything else, just a transaction that has to happen [...]

4 Reasons Why Magento Belongs In My Ecommerce Portfolio

I don't always use Magento, but when I do, it's for a serious project. I love Magento, even though I don't talk about it as much as Prestashop, Zencart, or my new boo Woocommerce. It's only a "go-to" platform for me when I know I need the muscle, loads of features, and I am in the right frame of mind to invest the time into a mega project. Even though I currently manage 6 online stores, Magento is rarely an option [...]

Migrating From Prestashop To Magento

Well, I did it. It was my first time migrating from Prestashop 1.5.6.2 to Magento CE 1.8.1 using Cart2Cart's web migrating tool. It was so easy and it worked perfectly. I figured I would write up a quick post about the choice, the experience, and overall benefit to doing this. If you have done this or are thinking about it, please add some comments below! Why I Made the Choice I sell digital downloads for one of my online stores [...]
