Every day the demand for a good database management system is increasing. The fact is that information is growing and expanding faster than ever. And this makes sense — all old records still need to be stored and saved, while new records are being added and updated daily. Even companies that five years ago had no use for a database management system are now struggling to even get a handle on the simplest information, as it relates to their customers. All database management systems have one goal in mind — to take the information you enter into it, and store it effectively. Then, when you need to get that information back, you can access it quickly, without any problem or headaches. Additionally, you want the feature of being able to access all of your information in one singular central location. What good is all your information going to be if […]

Enjoying the outdoors has always been my favorite activity in life. Depending on how far you need to travel to a favorite camping area it is fairly inexpensive and when you are properly prepared, very enjoyable. Priorities for your outdoor adventure: Water, Water, Water is first and foremost your main concern. When you leave the comforts of civilization you will not only need water for drinking but for washing yourself, your utensils, and maybe even filling the radiator of your car or truck. Of course I'm assuming you are taking a vehicle to your camp site. If you are backpacking of traveling lite you need to do some research of the area you plan to go and see where water sources will be and map them out. You can not depend on the water being drinkable – free from harmful bacteria. So you will need to take a supply of […]

Have a goal. Once, in an instructor’s office, the examiner gave us an exercise. He would ski down with a specific task in mind, but he wouldn’t tell us what it was. We were to watch him very carefully and decide what his task was. He skied and we all watched with rapt attention. One skier said “I think you were working on your balance”. Someone else suggested, “You were focusing on keeping your turn shape consistent”. A third said, “The rhythm of your pole touch”. Then came the punch line. What was his focus? “I was trying to keep the tassel on my hat flying straight back”, he joked. In short, he was just skiing. And each of us had inadvertently revealed what we were thinking about in our own skiing. Be if he had asked us what we wanted to work on, we would have mumbled something entirely […]

It is better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all; and even more important to learn from your mistakes. That is what I keep telling myself after having invested the time and cash equivalent to a Harvard MBA in an e-commerce start-up that has stalled and is winding down. Not a happy prospect in light of all the media pre-occupation with e-commerce success stories and the young millionaires watching their IPOs rocket into cyberspace. But the headlines ignore the more frequent stories of new e-commerce businesses that do not hit the stock market jackpot. Many of them either settle into a low-key niche or exhaust their resources and fold. This is the story of an Internet venture that did not make the headlines, but offers some useful insights for entrepreneurs evaluating their own initiatives. The lessons learned are applicable to your own new venture or […]

It can be difficult to eat healthy while traveling. Skip the roadside restaurants, but instead bring your own food. Pack your cooler with fruits and vegetables, crackers, yogurt, granola bars and cheese. These things are easy to pack, and easy to eat while on the road. Don’t forget the water, it will help you stay hydrated as you drive. Ditch the fanny pack. Not only do you look the part of a tourist, a fanny pack is often easy pickings for a thief. If you crave the convenience of the fanny pack, consider getting a multi-pocket travel vest instead. These carry just as much but keep the items close to your body where they are safer.
