According to the experts, there is an untapped landscape of opportunity just waiting for you to pounce.  Where is it?  In Central Asia, specifically in the country of Kazakhstan.  I bet that not many of you have even thought of this region of the world but now it's time to do some heavy thought creation. 
 
Of course, some may be saying and rightfully so that Central Asia is still relatively unknown but let's turn this into a positive opportunity.  There is absolutely no harm in getting in on the ground floor of opportunity; when the market is still very much untapped, and the track is clear for one to blaze a trail and make their own mark.  In short, to put their own personal stamp on it all.  So how about it?  I have a great article for you to read.  Please see below.

How Not To Get Mugged Online

How Not To Get Mugged Online
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
Maybe I'm being a bit drastic in my description here but when it comes down to it, it is the honest truth.  It is time for us to learn how not to be mugged online.  It is time for us to start taking responsibility for our online security.  Time for us to defend ourselves and start pushing or rather shoving back. 
 
The Internet or online way of life is here to stay.  The online way of doing business and socializing is here to stay so we might as well get used to it.  Great for technology but unfortunately there are some drawbacks for us to deal with; like having to look over our shoulders each time we go online.  Not to worry, there are tons of advisers and advice for you to follow and I have an excellent piece for you to read.  Please see below.

Don't count on an inheritance

Don't count on an inheritance
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
You got it and this is for all those who expect their boomer parents to leave them an inheritance.  It is probably not going to be there and why?  Because at the present time, your parents are caught in the middle; they are the sandwich generation who now find themselves having to look after their parents who are your grandparents, plus you.
 
The sandwich generation is a term that is being aptly used to describe your parents.  The boomers are now being asked to perform two sets of tasks simultaneously plus having to look after themselves.  A very challenging set of tasks which could be easily compared to having to ski uphill on one ski.  Or having to chase the canary while ensuring that the cat does not sneak up and steal the tuna on the counter. 
 
The picture gets even worse with boomers having to use their social security and medicare benefits to help their finances and fewer and fewer younger workers are paying into the social security pot these days.  Ouch!  The sandwich generation is really being squished from all sides.  I am going to leave you with a very sobering article to read.  Please see below.

Money and Borders: Cross-Border Investments In A Changing Global ...
    By Donna J. Jodhan
 
The cross-border investment strategy is fast becoming a very important trend and you may be asking why.  It all has to do with the expansion of global trade and the need for companies to get into cross-border business in order to stay alive.  Gone are the days when it was possible to survive by concentrating on doing business within one's own country or homeland.
 
So, what really is cross-border investments?  In a nutshell:  It all has to do with doing business in other countries.  This being said, in order to take advantage of cross-border investments, there is much homework to be done and it includes:  Keeping abreast of political and economic conditions and trends in other countries.  I have an excellent reference for you to follow up on.  Please read on.

Mature Market Experts » Mature Market Experts Stat of the Day ...
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
How much do you know about the mature market?  Is it real?  Does it really exist?  Are there real consumers with real demand in this market?
 
The answer to all of these questions is a very resounding yes.  The mature market is made up of real consumers with real demands.  They are the aging baby boomers and seniors and they have real demands and real income to spend.  This market is not going to go away for as long as life goes on.  It is here to stay and it is now that we should be positioning ourselves to meet the demands with regard to products, services, and information.   
 
I can put this in a very easy way for you to remember.  It's called the SIP demand where S stands for services, I stands for information, and P stands for products.  I have an excellent reference for you to check out.  Please see below.

computer and the surrounding: How To Create An Effective Newsletter

computer and the surrounding: How To Create An Effective Newsletter
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
So many of us find ourselves struggling with how to write effective newsletters and we all know how effective newsletters can help us to promote our businesses in an efficient way.  Write effective newsletters on a continuous basis and we can be assured that sooner than later, the customers will start to trickle in followed by expanding revenue.  Write a newsletter that is boring, lacking in information, and one that is very placid, and you can be assured that sooner than later your business will start to suffer.
 
Effective newsletters is one of the best ways to go these days.  It is what small businesses are using to promote and sustain their business efforts.  It is one of the most powerful marketing weapons in their arsenals.  You would be surprised to know how newsletters can be used to help spread the word about your business.  Electronically as well as in printed format.
 
I have an excellent reference for you to read and I invite you now to read on.  Please see below.

Consumers Encouraged to Protect Their Privacy Online

Consumers Encouraged to Protect Their Privacy Online
    By Donna J. Jodhan
 
I don't think that I can over stress the need for consumers to protect their online privacy.  With more and more hackers and cyber pirates on the prowl, it is becoming increasingly vital for us to protect our online domains.  No, it is not too difficult to do it and in both the short and long runs, it will help you to avoid tons of pain, stress, and heartache. 
 
Nothing could be worse than having your online privacy compromised.  Just think of it in this way:  If you allow hackers and cyber pirates to take charge of your online privacy, then there goes the protection of such things as your banking details, your credit card information, plus so much more.  Take a moment to take care of business.  Take more than a moment to protect your online privacy.  If you want to sleep better at night then you will surely heed these warnings.
 
I have a great article for you to read and I invite you now to see below.

Yes, it is very true.  Baby boomers and seniors are starting to gravitate towards social websites such as Facebook and others.  Is this a good thing?  Why not!  This can open up so many new doors for boomers and seniors and help them to keep in touch with so many new and developing events.  I can only see this as goodness.
 
Facebook and other social networking sites will help boomers to expand their horizons, extend their circle of friends, stay in touch with relatives, and above all help them to adjust more quickly to retirement.  Social networking websites will certainly help boomers and seniors to enrich their lives after retirement and help to create a new way of socializing that is a different way of doing it but at the same time, a new way to stay in touch.  We should look at it in this way:  A terrific way and opportunity to ride the wave of evolving technology and use it to create a different type of socializing; something that no one could have predicted.
 
I am going to leave you with a great reference to check out.  Please see below.

TweetArc.com - How To Make Money Online Like Myspace And Facebook!
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
Almost everyone of us wants to learn how to make money on the Internet and now there is a very new dimension for you to consider.  Doing it via the social network way may be a great idea and no reason why it cannot work.  Just look at Youtube, Myspace, Facebook, and Linkedin.  However, easier said than done.  All of these websites have managed to hit the jackpot big time and they are fine examples for anyone to emulate. 
 
Now we need to go out there and learn how.  Social networks are here to stay but with them come some new headaches for us to deal with.  Like?  Having to deal with identity thieves and cyber pirates.  Social networks are fast becoming the favorite targets of thieves and pirates and it is a race to see who will be the ultimate victors.  Will social networks be able to build walls high enough to keep out savvy and determined identity thieves and cyber pirates?  Only time will tell.

Does the Internet Have a Skeleton Key?

Does the Internet Have a Skeleton Key?
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
The Internet can only have a skeleton key if we allow it to do so.  In short, we are responsible for our own safety and security.  Passwords that are very difficult to decipher by others are one the things that we can use in order to protect ourselves.  So often we are reminded to pay very close attention to the passwords we use. 
 
Do not use passwords that are made up of your birth date, names of family, friends, or pets, or passwords that are easily tied to your hobby or likes.  Use passwords that are combinations of letters and numbers.  When dealing with the protection of your y-fi connections, be even more careful and take the necessary precautions.  Please see my reference below.  An excellent one for you to read.

Baby boomers want to leave the world better off

Baby boomers want to leave the world better off
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
It is only natural that baby boomers would want to leave this world a bit better off.  So many responsibilities have fallen upon the shoulders of this particular generation.  They are better known as the sandwich generation because of having to do two things simultaneously;look after their elderly parents and at the same time care for their kids.  In addition, they are the ones who have been hit the hardest by this recent recession.  They are dealing with trying to hold on to their jobs and at the same time they are desperately trying to find ways to bolster their savings and incomes.  All of this at the same time.  A tremendous juggling act for any generation to have to deal with.
 
One can easily ask what type of legacy could we expect baby boomers to leave us?  It's a very difficult question but a very interesting one at that.  This generation is going to need all the luck and help if it expects to leave any kind of legacy.  That is, in a financial way.  There is no doubt that they will leave behind a wealth of knowledge, skills, and experience but what more?  It's plenty for any generation to be leaving behind.
 
I have a very interesting article for you to read.  Please see below.

If you are having second thoughts about shopping on the Internet because you are afraid of viruses and spyware, then I'd like to suggest something for you.  There is a lot of software around that you can download for free that will help you to stay safe and secure.  It would be an utter shame not to take advantage of what the Internet has to offer in the area of shopping.  Internet shopping is becoming more and more the way to go and online businesses are bending over backward to ensure that your shopping experience is carried out in safety. 
 
No need for you to miss out on shopping from the comfort of your home.  No need for you to remain scared and unwilling to move to online shopping.  It's here and it's not going to go away.  So, let me help you.  Please see my reference below.
