It’s been a while since I posted anything regarding life in general. Business has been decent and I have earned a few bucks here and there; sufficient enough to survive. It can get better and I foresee it will. I’ve yet to do any marketing, so my current batch of customers are purely referred via word of mouth.
So, let this be a reminder to you that for all the good things banners, brochures, mailing lists, AdSense and other “modern” promotion methods can provide, word of mouth marketing is far from dead! Nevertheless, it’s good to put in more effort in marketing and that’s precisely what I’ll be doing.
The current batch of jobs I had are relatively simple basic computer maintenance tasks… at least they are simple and basic for me.

It’s not expected, but a pleasant surprise nonetheless!
