At this time of year–some would say especially at this time of year–many people out there stop and remember Jesus Christ, and all the things he did. And while everyone’s got a different way of doing that, the people at By Design Ministries had a way to do it that few others had tried.

When you’re in charge, especially of your own small business, you quickly begin to discover that you need to be in a whole lot more places at once than you ever needed to be when you were just an employee.

This threat was called Siri, and it may well kill Google.
Sure, they’ve got a ton more than a cup of coffee. But I’m not talking about choices on the menu. Take your frappuccinos, cappuccinos, and all-kinds-of-ccinos as much as you want. This isn’t about caffeine.
This is about commerce. Small businesses. The cornerstone of America.
Speaking here as someone who has used the WordPress blogging platform for several years, one of the greatest things about it, bar none, is that you can use it to schedule your posts in advance. And that’s great for a lot of reasons. You can hit your followers up every day with some new nugget, but you can write them up all on Saturday night for regular dispersal throughout the week.
