Once again I have been getting emails from other artists and business owners asking
“How in the world do I stay so busy?”
and again I have to say that if it were not for my blog and networking I would not be as busy as I am
Over the last few years I have learned a lot about the subject and most of it has been by research, trial and error and many sleepless nights So I am going to post a couple of different options for those who want to start a
“Blog To Grow Any Business,”

I am just posting this information here because of all the emails that I get asking how I am staying so busy in a down economy and it’s really quite simple, I have grown my business presence online across the world as well as locally. So the first thing you need to do is get a domain name and I use

“How I Blog To Grow Any Business”
but you must do at least these things above before you can go any further. There are plenty of other services that you can go to but these are the ones that I use and have been using for several years and would recommend because of there support and especially their service which is to me is second to none
