How would this be a business blog without some rambling from the author?
It’s this time of the year again. Seems everyone is getting crazy in February and October. It’s been a pattern for at least 4 years and now I am sure of its existence. Maybe it’s my niche, maybe it’s the norm. I can’t put my finger on it, but maybe it’s those two times of the year that people get anxious of what to do next to promote their businesses or create a new one.
And that period is the only one I am so overwhelmed with projects, I just say no to new clients. But that’s not my problem. The real problem is friends that need help with an application, with an installation, with their site, you name it! And those are the hardest to say no to. Read more…
I got the idea for this post by observing my twitter feed and from watching my friend Vassilis online at 5:30 am..

Being able to see the big picture of what you’re doing obviously helps, right; but let’s face it: vision without planning is pointless. Read more…
Internet marketing is getting huge attention and many people every day start learning more and more about it.
The reasoning behind it is very simple and at the same time very powerful.

- Work wherever you want
- Work the exact time you want
- Work for as long as you want
- Work with whoever you want
That four points are my mantra and I will always try live by those rules as far as my career is concerned.
Don’t get me wrong, i am not “dreaming” of doing nothing and getting paid. You might think that that’s the case if you combine all the four elements together but:
This motto guides my life. Literally! It’s the one thing I’m sure I will never stop believing in. As I go through life, I have come to realize that stressing over things, as opposed to actually doing them, doesn’t help. I’ve noticed that I manage to get the best out of a situation when I stop over-analyzing and re-thinking things and just get them done.
I don’t know why, but it seems that with Internet Marketing I did the exact opposite. I was making good money from the Internet, even though I didn’t know what meta tags were. Once I started learning about Internet Marketing and Search Engine Optimization however, everything stopped. Why? Check out what happened…
