Today...September 6th, 2008
Okay, so sitting here watching the Bourne Ultimatum. Once in a while there's a movie with a cool story and not a lot of special effects. The killing one can do without, but it's fun to watch something that engages you and makes you think. This movie does that, so if you can stand a little bit of violence...watch it.
Now, what have you been doing in technology this weekend? Do you still use a PC? Have you seen the Apple Macintosh 24" iMac computer yet? Did you know that is runs BOTH MacOSX and Windows XP or Windows Vista in the same computer? Yes it's true. I am very excited to be getting back to having simply 1 computer on my desk but inside of it there will be two operating systems running.
Sort of like having someone who speaks chinese and someone who speaks spanish in the same room, but when they speak, they understand each other. A novel idea, but the iMac makes that possible.
Now, why would I want something that does this you ask? Simple. Productivity. I use both Macintosh and Windows programs in my work with clients so I need both of them. Now, to be able to submit a website in one window and then open another and work on an audio or a video for another client and then be able to use dreamweaver or another program to build a website while all of this is going on...priceless.
Oh and it's not just the desktops that can do this, the laptops can as well. :) For under $2000!!
Am in the process of building new websites for some clients and keeping some others on top of google where they belong.
It's great being able to serve others and help them, but it's good to find people that are committed to their vision and willing to stick with it.
When you start out on a mission you want to be sure it's something you want to do and something you want to stick with. If you're doing this for you and your business, make sure that you're "into" doing your business. It's not good for your spirit or your soul to be into something and then all of a sudden abandon it because "you can't do it". If you can't do it alone, then get a team of people to help you achieve your goals. Always ask for help, and if you're not sure how to ask, then send me an email and say "Mike, I don't know how to ask for help, but I know we need some". When you do I will help you and connect you with the right team members and make your project happen.
So...what are you doing for your business today?
