Nowadays, being in the “cloud” era made a lot of difference on how we do things compared before. I can still remember a shop in our village could only cater neighbors around and so the profit was just enough to survive through the day. With the advancement of time and technology, several of these “local” shops, if not in debt were closed down because of the rise of “ONLINE” shops. Now if you are planning to put up your own business, it is best to build your “Online Presence”. I could not emphasize enough that in business today, having your own website is as crucial as having an email address and a phone number.
Long time ago, being an entrepreneur wasn't notable. A lot of people prefer working in an organization (9AM - 6PM) and get paid monthly instead of putting up a business. Times have greatly changed now, and it is the other way around. Because economy is slowing down, prices are rising, debts are increasing, employees are being retrenched and salary are shrinking; many are forced to find other means to survive. Frankly, living today is more expensive than before!
