Here’s a little about me.
If you have time, you can read these…
Why would someone want to spend so much time doing this site? What’s in it for us, you ask? To begin, we like helping people and we believe giving time and effort can sometimes be better than giving money. We also like to share, so this is one form of it.
Why not a blog then? Well, we have always dreamt of being publishers of some sort. Web publishing is also publishing so in a way it helps us satisfy our smallish dream. Besides, a site like this is more professional and we intend to manage this site in a very professional manner. SBI! helps us do this. We have a little more about it further down if you are interested.
It’s fun doing this. It’s fun from many angles – it’s fun to know that everyday, we hear from people how some of the things we have written are beneficial to them. One of the best being getting emails from university lecturers all over the world saying they use some of these articles for their classes and that the students about to enter the working world benefit from it. It’s fun to know we can live in a tiny cranny of the world, not met each other but have a positive impact on each others' lives.
What about money? Do you make money? Well, we used to until we decided to take out all the Google ads. One day when we have time, we may sell an eBook or two. We want to give as much as we can and over deliver hence the free ebooks and all. We hope you will find them of reasonable quality and useful. We intend to add more content and tools.
Privacy. What about privacy? We are consumers (or netizens or whatever terms you use) ourselves, so we know how it feels to have your privacy invaded. We respect and protect the privacy of those interacting with us. We will not release your details to any other party nor use it for unsolicited emails. As we have mentioned repeatedly in our content, majority of what we share here things we have tried personally, read or seen. Whether it works depends on you. And that is also core of what we propagate here too. YOU need to take personal responsibility for your own career growth.

We found SBI! But finding was one thing and starting was another. It took us a whole 2 years before we decided to invest in it. Looking back, we wondered why it took us that long to decide in something we have always believed. After all, it is completely risk free as it provides a FULL refund.
What is SBI? It is the web host company that we use, as it is perfect for us. It is easy to use as it provides a step-by-step action guide, design templates so you do not need any experience at all. You will learn about ranking high with search engines as it provides that help too!
We did not start this site to make money, we started it to do what we enjoy and now we have two sites using SBI!. Interestingly, we have started making some money on one of them. And Dorena has started her own site too called www.easy-banana-recipes.com. Others have discovered how they can make good money via SBI! It all depends on your commitment – read about other success stories here. And best of all SBI! teaches you how to monetize (create revenue from your site).
If you complain about your job, your boss, here is something you can do for yourself. Do not make the mistake we made – mulling over it for too long! Do it now. Start your own business, slowly, in a small fashion but the potential are huge. Just as we have discovered.
