As the world revolves
As the world revolves we evolve, and coming with the evolution is the destruction.
First, there was mom's and pop's storefront. Then came the mall that wiped away mom's and pop's. Next came superstores, which
annihilated the stores in the mall. What goes around comes around, and now is the age of the Internet. The only thing requiring us
actually to get in the car is to buy groceries. Why go to the mall and superstores, when you can pick and choose the best product at the
best price, all while in your pajamas, without even leaving your favorite couch?
People meet the Internet, the Internet, people. What a wonderful and (such an) intriguing concept that, instead of having a store front,
you, as a business owner, can reach your "target" audience, globally, within seconds!
At first, it sounded like an excellent idea. Then, you invested into ecommerce, and the more money you spent the more you had to pour

like me enough to hire me for some of the services I have on the menu.
I lay out what I want to trade with you, my clientele. I can only hope that with all the free stuff over the Internet you will see that
nothing is actually free, and that you will use your reason to see what you are willing to accommodate. Do not be deceived by clever

clients to think that you are offering "free" stuff. Spell out what you want in return. People are smart, and if you believe that you sell
