5 simple ways to de-stress

The nature of my business means that I am home in front of the computer a lot, which makes it very easy for me to stay cooped up at home for hours on end working on client websites or chatting to friends on Facebook. If you share a similar lifestyle or even a very active extreme lifestyle it can be very easy to be always stressed and tired. I've found a few things that have helped me de-stress an...

What was your the biggest marketing mistake?

The biggest mistake I made was too focus too much on SEO and too little on the actual consumer. 
My sites all rank without a problem, but I found adding a human element to my content made a big difference in conversions.

How do you get a website indexed by Google so that it appears on Google search engine?

Hi Shane,

To get your website indexed on google you can manually submit it to google via this google link:

http://www.google.com/submityourcontent/website-owner/  
The first 3 links under "web" are what you need to pay attention to. The first link does what you want it to - it will submit your website address to the google index. 
You will need to register for a google webmaster tools account to add a sitemap. A sitemap tells google what pages are on your site and what pages to "crawl" or look at - instead of it trying to follow links through. It is good SEO practice to have a site map. If there are sites you don't want to look at you need to add what is called a robots.txt file to your website.

How do I find VCs or angel investors for my startup?

From what I've heard you need to know the right people as well. Get to know a few investors and find out what they are looking for is a good start. Get some people backing your personal brand as well is also a bonus as they are mostly investing in you as a founder as opposed to the business.

Does every small business need a business coach?

I've never used one but I have a mentor, does that count?

What are the pros and cons of moving from Gmail to Google Apps?

I think you should consider moving when you need your email to integrate with your other google applications, e.g. calendar and if you want a more professional email. 
Pros.
Instead of @gmail, you can have @yourdomainname. 
Cons.
Not much of a difference so same cons as gmail.

Is cloud computing the way of the future?

It seems all rosy, except for maybe sercurity issues and data storage issues. You just need to be clear on where your data is stored and how it is to be handled by the company you are using.

How to assist my staff wanting to bring their own devices to work?

I think the most important thing to consider is security of the devices. I think it's great that you are thinking of allowing your employees to bring their own devices to work but it may be a good idea to establish a good set of ground rules. If information leaks out, how to deal with it. It may be as simple as having your employee create a separate account on their laptop for work and a separate one for home.
