My purpose in starting this portal is to provide straightforward, honest, and simplified, overall truly useful information, to individuals who own or willing to own a small business. I believe being able to search and select right service providers is the crucial aspect of starting and running an efficient and successful small business. Searching for and selecting the right service provider needs to be considered as a task just similar to searching for and hiring the best candidate to fulfill a position at your operation. Yet it is not a person but a corporation that you are hiring in our case. Via this portal my aim is to provide my best to help you to make that right hiring decision.
It is very important to pick the right service provider in each service area, because they are to be your everyday partners in your hopefully long journey. You better reserve all of your focus and time to your product and your market rather than wasting time and mental energy at details of other work areas. Let those corporations you select and hire work for you on those areas. While setting up this portal I worked carefully in identifying category by category all the services a typical small business of our time needs in order to function perfectly. Furthermore, I intensely investigated and listed name by name all providers of those services in each category. By using several objective and transparent sources of data, I rank those names from best recommended to the least always updating if and when a change may occur at the source.
The urgency for establishing this web site occurred to me when I started realizing that to a searcher internet is full of biased, confused and manipulative information. I am a New Yorker; my motto is simplifying the complicated. Therefore, I decided to gradually build this site by utilizing my life time experience in small businesses. I have worked at many areas of a small business practice throughout the 30 years of my work life, those include small business owner, small business banker, small business consultant, small business broker, and e-commerce builder.
I lived through the two extraordinary transformation took place in small business universe in these 30 years of my work experience. One, retail small businesses of past used to be brick-and-mortar stores only, however retail small businesses are nowadays mostly e-commerce. Even mobile businesses with its popularity growing recent years seem to surpass brick-and-mortar businesses near future. Two, rapid integration of global trade of past years accompanied with fascinating progress in cloud technologies of recent years transformed complex and expensive services a typical business needs to function into unimaginable scales of simplicity and cost effectivity. Hence, there are two outcomes from these transformations. First, automation is evaporating all the jobs in one industry after another. Second, starting a small business, particularly speaking of e-commerce, has never been this practical and easy, thanks to super simplified cloud-based services new generation providers offer. Not to mention the fact that now you can start your e-commerce business with a modest amount of capital that couldn't be even imagined one decade ago. Overall, there was no better time for an individual to start a business than now; and, while traditional jobs are rapidly disappearing there was no other time than now with this urgency for an individual to consider starting a small business.
While presenting my way of practical explanation to each unique topic or question, at my blogs I try my best to transmit latest developments taking place at current small business ecosystem. They also cover my reviews and comparisons on related service providers. At the workshops I conduct, I implement the course I developed. Designed for new starters the course covers A to Z all aspects of starting and running a small business particularly an e-commerce. My courses aim to equip willing individuals, who has not owned a business before, with strategic and to the point knowledge and confidence. I invite all individuals from all walks of life to get equipped with practical knowledge, and courage, in starting and running own small business, particularly an e-business. There is no better time than now.
