The Realities of Web Hosting Today...

You are a small business person, or are about to start. You care deeply about success. It's more than the money. It directly speaks to quality of life, to freedom and independence, to self-fulfillment.
99% of small business sites fail. The small business Web hosting industry even has a term for this, the "churn rate". [SHOW] .Yes, old-fashioned Web hosting, the standard Web hosting that is offered everywhere and by the largest of companies, virtually dooms small businesses from the start. SBI! is modern Web hosting, complete with all the tools you need. If "Web hosting" was "transportation," SBI! would be a NASCAR or F1 automobile, complete with a full staff of automated pit crew and coaches, that you drive to victory.

What about standard, old-fashioned Web hosts (ex., 1&1, verio, yahoo, etc., etc.)?   "Park it over there in the corner." You rent space on their computers. They throw in a snazzy free sitebuilder and other irrelevant tools. But you get no process, no mentoring. And you pay extra for important, success-generating tools and traffic-building staff.

What about blogging, the latest cheap-quick-easy way to "get online"? For special types of small businesses, it can be a good choice. But for most, blogging is the "new fast way to fail" -- don't miss this analysis.
You should make a well-informed, organized, hype-free decision. Try this decision-making software. After you run through its example, enter any Web host you may be considering, add any factors that are important to you. You will make the right choice.

Colonial Revival?

Africa is awakening.It beats it's breast as it sees Asia and Latin America taking off into the future.Africa is still being considered the world's poorest region.The late Jomo Kenyatta was reported to have said that when the colonialists arrived on Africa's shores , Africans had the land while the White Man held Bibles.The white man taught them "how" to pray.When Africa opened it's eyes the White Man had the land and the Africans were holding the Bibles!

There's a lot of huha these days however about a perceived new colonial subordination:Economic Partnership Agreements with Europe.This will lead iniatially to a flood of liberalisation and deregulation of investment and financial cash flows.Africa trembles at the destruction to African cottage industries , loss of tariff income and most of all a loss of it's identity.The identity of a regional African integration process founded on trade between countries in zones ,e.g.the Eastern Zone etc etc.These zones will face the peril of trade diversion to Europe and Africa may once again end up holding " bibles".

That sounds like the EPA's we sign when we go work for a boss,doesn't it?The one sided-agreement working for someone who'll, well , perhaps , teach you "how" to pray.But when you open your eyes , the Boss has your time and talents and you are holding his bible ( the Employee Handbook)!

As a breadwinner or rainmaker you owe it to yourself to wet your feet in the waters of a new frontier.You owe it to yourself!
