“Thunder” To Web 2.0

If you don’t know who Gary Vaynerchuck is, he should really check him out. He’s the frantic voice (and face) behind the wildly popular video-blog wine Library TV, where he reviews both expensive and inexpensive wines with a flair only he can bring (he calls it bringing the ‘thunder’). More than a great Continue Reading »

Hong Kong Red Cross Website Sucks

Topics: China, Internet Marketing, Non-profits, Politics

It seems like we’re in an era of natural disasters. The US is still recovering from Katrina, while these past two weeks we’ve seen tornadoes all across the Midwest, a huge cyclone in Myanmar (Burma) and a devastating earthquake in Sichuan, China. It’s sad to see so many people lose their lives, and so many people have theirs disrupted.

In addition to making me sad, these type of events inspire me to help out other people. I’m a successful entrepreneur, and I consider myself a Continue Reading »

Morning Check-Up

Want to save some time? Try back flipping into your jeans!

In my last post, I talked about taking some time each morning to gather yourself before the day (and to plan it out). I stick by what I said – about how it helps to make a to-do list (and a not-to-do list). But those work best when you have too much energy, and too much motivation. What if you’re struggling with either of these? What if you have trouble getting going, or you have trouble figuring out what to get going on?

Well then, I have some more morning advice Continue Reading »

Its Morning, Now What?

Topics: General Business, Lifestyle Design

In my last post, I wrote that God is right… that Sunday is best taken as a day off. Well, I don’t know exactly who to give credit to on this one, but I’ve discovered something else about taking time off. Namely, that you should take some each morning. What do I mean?

Well, I think most people start work by launching right into the task that feels the biggest or the most-pressing. This might be effective in getting that task done, but once it is, what next? Do you have a plan for the rest of the day? An ordered list of what you’d like to get done? A list of what you’d like to avoid? Well, probably not. After the first task is done, you probably feel unclear about exactly what to do next, and in what order. You probably Continue Reading »

Turns Out God Is Right All Along

Topics: General Business

I’m in no way religious or anything, but I’ve got to give props to my bro G.O.D. on this - take a break on Sunday!

As entrepreneurs, we are often caught in our own business, it becomes an integral part of our life at which we work in it and think about it all the time. We get so consummed by it emotionally to the point at which we cannot see it clearly from an outside perspective.

Since 2 weeks ago, I tried this new weekly schedule, Continue Reading »

Playpumps: How A Small Idea Can Make The World A Better Place

No Comments

Written by Dominic Lee

Topics: Non-profits

This is a great example which goes about to show you how one single brilliant idea has the ability to change the world - PlayPumps. Kids play on a merry-go-round and pump water for villages at the same time. Girls benefit in particular because they are usually the ones fetching water, and now they can use the spared time to receive education.

I’ve donated - how about you?

Microsoft Acquiring Yahoo? What this means to YOU and ME.

Written by Dominic Lee

Topics: Business Opportunities, General Business, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo

Unless you have been hiding in a cave, you should know that Microsoft is trying to acquire Yahoo and all the dramas that went along with it (i.e. Yahoo declining the offer and Mircosoft turn “hostile”, Yahoo looking for deals from private equities and other media companies like News Corp., Google bringing up the whole anti-trust thing again in revenge for when Microsoft protested against Google’s acquistion of Double Click…)

Since opinions, speculations, & suggestions are ALL OVER the internet and paper about this ordeal, I thought I would chim in and give my 2 cents.

Is this a surpise?

Hardly, it has been widely speculated that Microsoft is looking to acquire Yahoo since 4th Quarter last year. In fact, in Merrill Lynch’s “Top 10 Internet Themes for 1H’08″ report, it has been mentioned and speculated. Seriously, for Microsoft to even stand a chance Continue Reading »

Do YOU Have Business Resolutions For 2008?

If not, you should.

New year is a great time for busy entrepreneurs like us to really sit down, think about what we did this past year with our business, set goals for the new year, and create a roadmap to get there.

In 2008, our company main objective is to create a better customer experience, by adding a full time phone support staff and toll-free support no. on all our websites. We’ll also refine our refund and shipping policies to give our customer stronger protection and more flexibility in returning products to us.

We’re launching two ecommerce sites (ShopBeads.com and GolfIsEasy.com) in late January, and may look into 1-2 more towards June. Our target this year Continue Reading »

Happy Holidays Or Merry Christmas?

1 Comment

Written by Dominic Lee

Topics: General Business

Its that time of the year when you should be sending Christmas cards or emails to people or organizations that are associated with your business. This includies your vendors, suppliers, partners, employees, and customers. So this brings us to one question - should we say “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas”?

For those of you reading who’re not from the US, you’d probably ask, “Why would anyone say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas?” Well, in the US, there’s something called “Political Correctness”, so apparently if you say Merry Christmas, it implies something about Christ and Christianity so people from other religion may be offended…

So in business settings, especially if you do business in the US, what should you say?

Well, I personally use “Happy Holidays” just in case, but really I dont think it matter that much… do people really get offended so easily? Do you really want to do business with people who are SO particular about irrelevant things?

Tell me what you think!
