Anthill magazine posted a link to a great video by some of the guys the other day. I just got around to watching it (I kinda store ‘Favourites’ from twitter posts during the week, and check them out later).

DealsDirect.com.au will support Netball Australia’s online membership portal, MyNetball, the Holden Netball Test [...]
I had a short holiday to New Zealand the other week. A time to relax a little, spend some time with family and count sheep. Recently my business life and thought process has been influenced a lot more by the consulting we do these days, and my Directshop business is getting more involved in consulting and development [...]
I have been using twitter for a little while. I started using it for a few reasons. Mainly to see how it works (the dynamics of tweets, conversations, and the social aspects), and what can be done with it for personal and business reasons. What better way to find out about it than start an [...]

Although I haven’t been able to speak to too many other sellers recently the ones I have spoken to are hinting at the same issues. Prices are all going up, thanks to the current exchange rate (1 Australian dollar [...]
Back on deck at work this morning, following up a few people that I met at the Pesa Summit over the last few days. It was great to meet some readers of my blog, and talk to a lot of sellers. After my panel session on Business Automation my 15 min one on one blocks [...]
