The Google Apps Reseller Program

I feel there isn’t enough time in the day to do all the things I would like. Exploring Google and all they have to offer small business is something for which I do not have enough time. Even still, I would love to become well versed in their technology.Google has implemented a Google Apps Reseller, which should be of great interest to IT solution providers and professionals around the world. I have passion for internet technologies and Google has become a vital component of successful online businesses and careers. As an IT consultant, I don’t have the luxury of using time as an excuse. I need to know Google.I may not be a Google Authorized Reseller, but at least I’m taking advantage of Google technologies and services for my business and personal use. Google and their many webmaster tools has become a best friend for small businesses. They contribute to the open source community too, which I respect.If you’re in consulting business or an IT professional and you’re just using Google as a search engine, you’re missing out on some of today’s most important internet technologies. GMail is awesome email software and the convenience of Google Docs puts commercial applications to shame. But, it’s the Google API that truly makes it all so powerful.If you’re already in the IT industry and taking advantage of Google Apps for your business, you now have the opportunity to add Google Apps to your existing VAR business model. The Google Apps Reseller Program is an opportunity to strengthen relationships with existing clients and generate revenue by having Google as your partner.

How to Make Money in Online Business the First Time You Try

It usually takes a while for people to earn their first dollar online after they start an online business This is because most people come into online business without any experience and have to go through a “figuring it out” phase.But what if it was possible to take away the learning curve, the guess work that usually dogs our attempt to make money online?.What if there was a way to start making money even before you start learning?.If there was such a way what would it entail?.How would it obliterate the dreaded learning curve that holds so many people back?.The most difficult part of learning to make money online is learning to become an effective marketer. This is where many people fail.This is the mother of most of the money making casualties on the internet.So anything that would remove the time lag between starting a home business and making your first dollar online would have to deal with this problem effectively.It would have to circumvent or totally obliterate this problem so that people can start making money soon after they start an online business.It would essentially have to remove the need to be an effective marketer in order to make money in the online business arena.So can such a program exist? Does it?If it does what form would it take? How would it effectively deal with this problem?.I believe the answer would be AUTOMATION.This is what I mean.Something else would have to do your marketing for you.And that thing would either be a ROBOT or a HUMAN BEING.The history of trying to automate the marketing process using robots has been an abysmal one.It has often met with colossal failure and people have completely lost faith in that approach.I think the reason for the failure is rather simple. ROBOTS DON’T THINK. No matter how smart they are.And marketing is a “people thing”. The science of understanding human desire and satisfying it in a manner that benefits both the marketer and the prospect.Robots don’t understand any of that that’s why they fail.So the only way to eliminate the problem of the length of time it takes for people to make their first dollar online after starting an online business is to come up with a system that includes a way for established marketers to assist with the dreaded marketing process at least in the first few months after a newbie start an online business. So that he can start making money at the same time that he starts to learn.This would have to be part and parcel of a money making program for it to be effective. Part of a whole as it were of products,websites, and learning.Because it would be hard for some one who is just starting out online to assemble his own marketing army as it were. And it would be vastly more expensive.And that’s another reason why it would have to be part of an existing money making program.To help bring the cost down and make it more affordable to people on a low budget.That’s what I believe it would take to make money in online business the first time you try.And such a program already exists.

Shoe Repairs And Several Other Things When I Was 7

Shoe Repairs And Several Other Things When I Was 7
My Dad repaired most of our shoes believe it or not, I can hardly believe it myself now. With 7 pairs of shoes always needing repairs I think he was quite clever to learn how to “Keep us in shoe Leather” to coin a phrase!

He bought several different sizes of cast iron cobbler’s “lasts”. Last, the old English “Laest” meaning footprint. Lasts were holding devices shaped like a human foot. I have no idea where he would have bought the shoe leather. Only that it was a beautiful creamy, shiny colour and the smell was lovely.

But I do remember our shoes turned upside down on and fitted into these lasts, my Dad cutting the leather around the shape of the shoe, and then hammering nails, into the leather shape. Sometimes we’d feel one or 2 of those nails poking through the insides of our shoes, but our dad always fixed it.

Hiking and Swimming Galas
Dad was a very outdoorsy type, unlike my mother, who was probably too busy indoors. She also enjoyed the peace and quiet when he took us off for the day!

Anyway, he often took us hiking in the mountains where we’d have a picnic of sandwiches and flasks of tea. And more often than not we went by steam train.

We loved poking our heads out of the window until our eyes hurt like mad from a blast of soot blowing back from the engine. But sore, bloodshot eyes never dampened our enthusiasm.

Dad was an avid swimmer and water polo player, and he used to take us to swimming galas, as they were called back then. He often took part in these galas. And again we always travelled by steam train.

Rowing Over To Ireland’s Eye
That’s what we did back then, we had to go by rowboat, the only way to get to Ireland’s eye, which is 15 minutes from mainland Howth. From there we could see Malahide, Lambay Island and Howth Head of course. These days you can take a Round Trip Cruise on a small cruise ship!

But we thoroughly enjoyed rowing and once there we couldn’t wait to climb the rocks, and have a swim. We picnicked and watched the friendly seals doing their thing and showing off.

Not to mention all kinds of birdlife including the Puffin.The Martello Tower was also interesting but a bit dangerous to attempt entering. I’m getting lost in the past as I write, and have to drag myself back to the present.

Fun Outings with The camera Club
Dad was also a very keen amateur photographer, and was a member of a camera Club. There were many Sunday photography outings and along with us came other kids of the members of the club.

And we always had great fun while the adults busied themselves taking photos of everything and anything, it seemed to us. Dad was so serious about his photography that he set up a dark room where he developed and printed his photographs.

All black and white at the time. He and his camera club entered many of their favourites in exhibitions throughout Europe. I’m quite proud to say that many cups and medals were won by Dad. They have been shared amongst all his grandchildren which I find quite special.

He liked taking portraits of us kids too, mostly when we were in a state of untidiness, usually during play. Dad always preferred the natural look of messy hair and clothes in the photos of his children.
