    Dry Erase Board Visualization

    Last year I bought a dry erase board and hung it in my office/bedroom. You can find them at Walmart or on Amazon. $50 bucks or less for a nice size one. I hung the board using command strips to the wall. It hasn't fallen. Everyone has their own way to hash out ideas or think about...

When I say play it safe I am not implying that starting a more common business structure is safer or less risky, but there are proven models and examples to follow. When going big you're often the one...

    WEB/DIGITAL Alternative To Google Adsense

    If you couldn't use google adsense as an ad revenue source for your website, what would you do? I've been looking into potential alternatives, and surprisingly there aren't many. Clicksor is the only legit one I've seen so far. Any other suggestions? I don't want to do affiliate banners...

    When you're creating a website should you be more concerned with figuring out how to monetize it(and structure it accordingly), or with attracting as many users/visitors as possible when that itself doesn't generate any income.
