Making Your Business Known On The Internet

Creating, managing and promoting your website does not have to be overwhelming. There would seem to be endless possibilities and decisions, but in reality all websites need three things: a good look, a good set up, and good content. Vanessa can help with all three - and with the promotion you'll need to ensure success.

Also known as "the technical stuff." You've got to have a domain name, which is the address where people go to find you.

Reality Bites? Bite it Back!

Always Search for Reality

Some would say that there are all kinds of realities. Virtual or physical. Subjective or objective. Inner or outer.

The Power of Knowledge

I am a great fan of knowledge. And I don’t mean only knowledge that’s the first step in making a plan, or passing a test, or achieving a goal. But I believe in learning purely for the wonder of gaining something beautiful, useful or just something new. Learning is never a waste of time, even
