Imagine for a minute. You are on a tropical island, laying by a pool on a banana lounge. Your biggest concern right now is whether you will have another swim, or order another drink.

Married to the Business


I am currently undertaking research for my next book about couples in a personal relationship operating a business together. If that is you, I would love to hear about your experiences. There is also a modest thank you gift for completing the survey. The survey is completely anonymous. You can take the survey here.

Married to the Business is a series of posts about a couple who together run a building business. (See earlier posts here.)

Ad of the Month - Bookmarking

So the advertiser is paying for clicks from hostile visitors. That doesn’t seem a great strategy to me.
