Entrepeneurship and Meditation

By Yaro Starak
April 30th, 2005

I’ve created a new category for spirituality because I believe this aspect of life, especially to entrepreneurs, is very important. While business may be the focal point for an entrepreneur’s life, it’s your outlook on life that shapes what kind of person you are. Having a strong sense of self can benefit your business in many ways. The down periods … Read the rest of this entry »

Using autoresponders to grab clients

By Yaro Starak
April 30th, 2005

I get a lot of queries and client registrations to my business that don’t lead to sales. Converting potential clients to paying clients is a very important process since a potential client has clearly demonstrated some interests in your services or products, they just need to be convinced.

Currently I live between Canada and Australia or Toronto and Brisbane to be exact. I spent four months in the Toronto winter over December -March.

By Yaro Starak
April 25th, 2005

Taking a break may appear like a topic that no one should have trouble with but if you are an entrepreneur it’s not as easy as it sounds. Those working normal jobs might have trouble identifying with me here but I trust most entrepreneurs know what I’m talking about. If you are an entrepreneur you enjoy working on your business … Read the rest of this entry »

April 23rd, 2005

As much as I like to consider myself up to date with all the latest technology I’m not always an early adopter. Recently I’ve been staying abreast of the latest and greatest web innovations by reading the blogs of people that make it their business to stay up to date. In particular I’ve noticed that social software, applications that allow … Read the rest of this entry »

You may have heard that having a web community is a great way to increase sales, customer loyalty and word of mouth for your web business.

Centralised Personal Computing

By Yaro Starak
April 11th, 2005

In the recent Skype update they have switched to a centralised contact list system so no matter where in the world you log in you will have your full contact list available (much like other IM software programs have had for a while).
