Why Starting Your Own Business is a Must - Let's Reach Success

This is a guest post by Sef Cruz of MakeaNewBusiness, a blog that provides business ideas, tips and everything you need to know when starting your own business.

Starting a business is not just for millionaires. It is not just for any individual with impressive educational background.

Starting a business is for anyone hoping to change their life and gain financial stability. However, not everyone has the courage to explore new opportunities and is ready to go out of their comfort zone.

Most of these discouraged individuals do not know that in order to be successful in life, they will have to go through challenges and obstacles along the way.

Success will not come for you. You have to go after it.

Due to the fact that they are not brave enough to take risks, they are left no choice but to work for someone for the rest of their lives. Definitely, this should not be the case. If you have got an opportunity to change your life, no matter what the consequences may be, be prepared to grab it.

To help you make better decisions, I will highlight you the benefits of starting your own business that you might not be aware of:

1. High Income Opportunities.

Let us face it. The reason why you are working is to pay your monthly bills, save money for an annual vacation and to settle down for your future.

Don’t tell me you are working because you love your job.

By starting your own business, your monthly salary can be doubled or tripled depending on your business monthly revenue. The thing is, your monthly income is expandable compare to your monthly salary as an employee.

2. Income Stability Assurance.

Truth be told. You are working hard to secure your job. You always want to impress your boss hoping for a salary increase or to become an asset and valuable piece of the company.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Every employee is replaceable. No one is irreplaceable. And no matter how many sacrifices you make for your employer, if they want to replace you, they will replace you.

If you start your own business, this will not happen to you. Your income will be stable, you will never have to worry of losing your job and most important thing, you will never have to work hard to help someone else become richer.

3. You Can be Free of Stress and Pressure.

Do yourself a favor. No one has ever dreamt of being under stress and pressure everyday of their lives. There is no exemption. If you are an employee, you are probably used to it. But this should not be the case.

You do not want to live for the rest of your life stressed and pressures because of your job. In fact, you are working hard and slowly being killed by work stress and your boss is probably enjoying his life on a vacation.

But after starting your own business, you will never have to go through the same level of stress and frustration in your life. You can always wake up happy every morning of your life and not worried of your job.

4. You Can Use Your Time Effectively.

There is no worse situation for every employee than facing traffic jam. Imagine if you travel to work for an hour or two and from work to your home takes another two. You are wasting so much precious time.

If you start your very own business, though, you can save about 5 hours per day, that you can spend on something else that can make you more productive.

Time is gold, so why spend it in traffic?

5. You Can Choose The People You Work With.

Haters gonna hate. At some point of your employment career, you probably have encountered co-employee stabbing you in the back.

There is always someone who will try to bring you down or destroy you just to make their dreams come true. The thing is, you are probably unable to do anything about it because you don’t want to put your career at risk.

If you start your own business, you will never have to go through the same situation again. You can focus on most important thing which is business expansion and development.

Our time is running. Our life is changing.

If we slip through the opportunity to pass our life, there is no guarantee there will be a second chance. Starting your own business is not about bravery, but about looking ahead and thinking outside the box. So if you want yourself to do a favor, do it now. It is now or never.

Data Is Important to Your Business’s Operations: Keep It as Safe as It Is Accessible 4

The Secret to Designing Perfect Landing Pages

Computers have been able to move files between one another since the technology’s very early days. The first File Transfer Protocol (FTP) technology emerged in 1971. Back then, network administrators only needed to move data from one place to the next; security was not an issue. Furthermore, since the computers were probably in the same room, the data did not have very far to go.

Today, there are many ways to move data efficiently and safely over long distances. MOVEit by ipswitch is a good example. It’s very robust yet also very easy to use. It also has a number of audit trail and compliance features that really make it a useful program.

How do you know for sure whether Moveit or some other program is the right one for your business?

What is Secure File Transfer?

FTP still works very well when there is absolutely no need for security, but these instances are few and far between. Some of today’s most popular file transfer options are:

  • Secure File Transfer Protocol: As the name implies, SFTP is FTP plus encryption. The combination is very fast and prevents network eavesdropping. SCP (Secure Copy) is a closely related protocol.
  • Managed File Transfer: MFT is a much more complex option. In addition to file security, it adds a variety of audit, management, reliability, and other features.
  • Email Encryption: Instead of transferring the file as an attachment, a secure email sends a link. Then, the recipient can download the document from a secure site. Moreover, email encryption enables users to send very large files with little drama.
  • Hosting: Originally, file hosting services supported document collaboration and nothing else. Lately, security features have emerged as well, making network hosting a viable secure file transfer option.

All these methods rely on access control. Typically, that involves a username and password. Depending on the organization’s needs, the access control can be much tighter. Usually, this process involves an Identity and Access Management (IAM) system.

Some File Transfer Features

In its most basic form, secure file transfer relies on command line interfaces. This system is automated and not designed for user interface, so there are very few additional features. On the other hand, command line interfaces are very low-cost and allow organizations to maintain control over file security even if they use cloud providers.

SFTP is still the best option for most businesses, but SFTP by itself often falls short. Consider adding additional features like:

  • Auditing: Sometimes, auditing functions are available as an add-on. But organizations that also have compliance issues in this area, such as those that handle Personal Identifying Information (PII), may be better off with MFT.
  • Scheduling: This need is not as common but it’s still out there. Sometimes, users need to send documents at certain times of the day, usually to avoid bandwidth conflicts. Customers with scheduling needs almost always need MFT, because its systems are very robust.
  • Indirect Transfer: Only MFT allows users to send documents to an intermediary server when then forwards them to the recipients. The user and recipient are isolated from each other, and such transfers are easier to track.

Consider the options carefully before making a decision. Then, go with an established provider who stands by its products.
