It wasn't too long ago when building a website was an expensive process. You needed to know web design or even worse one of the many programing languages such as HTML, CSS or a range of others just to be able to create your own website. Times have changed and DIY website building platforms are now a common commodity within the internet space.
For those who have worked with me or know me well, I know you will all agree that technology has always been my nemesis. I often resisted the need for using technology such as smart phones and even VCR devices, but eventually realised that I couldn't afford to remain tech illiterate.
Roughly two years ago, I decided I needed a website, but actually wanted to build it myself. I researched several DIY website building platforms and after reading several reviews decided to use Weebly's platform for the main reason being that it was deemed by many to be the easiest to use.
If you have ever dreamt of writing a book, now is the time to make your dream a reality. Times have changed and with self publishing readily available to anyone, many of the obstacles facing would be writers have disappeared.
I wrote my first book " The Winning Resume" over a period of 6-9 months from memory, however, it could have been completed in a much shorter time span as I lost focus part way during the project.
The secret to getting a book written is to treat it as a project then assign so much time each week to working on the book until you have your end product.
I want to talk today about feeling lost. I feel that a lot of young people today get so wound up about not knowing where they are heading or feeling that their lives are passing by and they haven't yet made progress towards developing a career.
During my recent trip to Thailand, I often got lost and it was the best experience. I found that by getting lost, I stumbled across things that I would not have found if I had planned each day. This is the same in life. Opportunities come along to those who are prepared to get out of their comfort zone, to explore new territories, to try new things, to learn new skills, to read new books, to meet new people.
If you have never used Airbnb as an accommodation provider, you really are missing out on some great experiences. I recently enjoyed a one month backpacking trip to Thailand. I booked 27 of my 29 nights of accommodation through Airbnb before I set off for my trip, leaving two nights free so that I could enjoy a bit of flexibility with regards to my travel plans.
This photo was taken on my last day in Thailand where I spent three nights at an apartment which I booked through Airbnb. The lady next to me is Natty. She was one of a small team of locals employed to help run this block of apartments which are hired out to travellers and foreigners, some of whom were long stay guests working locally.
