All new business start-ups have one thing in common: They depend on the Internet and their online presence and online reach to succeed during the challenging start-up phase. Whether bricks and mortar or home-based, all new businesses need to get their online content indexed by search engines. They also must market and sell products and services online to generate cash flow; to get profitable after start-up.

latin woman adreana gonzalez inspires vocal students and hispanic people everywhere

When I heard it was going to be Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15), I began to think about all the hurdles I had to jump in order to get to where I am now in my career.

how retail is poised to reach new heights with virtual stores

Traditional retail has changed greatly over the past few decades. The internet has eliminated a lot of need for generalized retail stores and before that, the largest retail entities had put many smaller pens out of business through more shrewd investments or through their competitor’s bad management. In the years leading up to the Great Recession of 2008 many smaller stores folded and were followed by larger ones as the housing crisis gripped the world. While specialty stores stayed in business, joined by the more niche and well managed chains, many more chains disappeared permanently. Further damaging the physical retail industry is the ever-advancing front of internet commerce, or e-commerce.
