Keeping Our Customers Information Safe

Our small company relies on our website sales. In a meeting, we discussed our current costs for a server that the domain operates on. We remain committed to only using shared hosting for USA servers. Our IT guy showed us a graphic representation of the attacks on websites and servers in the United States. There is a way to see a live view of where the hits are coming from. The majority of attempts to hack computers in the United States was coming out of China. This got us thinking of vulnerabilities of using a shared server for our online business that was not based in our own home country.

The majority of our sales was from customers in the United States. Every sale is processing credit cards and other information such as names, addresses and other demographic information from our customers. We could not in good conscience think of outsourcing to servers that were not in US territory under control of our laws. I do not think that companies should take a lackadaisical approach to the hardware and software that their domains run on, nor should they do it for where those servers are located. Other countries hosting United States business sites might make sense if they followed all the same laws and rules that we do.

I think we are going overboard with our outsourcing of everything. You see how outsourcing has affected customer service. It is such a fiasco to have foreign customer service that it is made fun of in TV, movies, books and more. We do not want our company to be on the news because of any data breaches by not having secure servers no matter if we are on a shared system at this point or not. I think our integrity will help keep us winners in this business of gaining consumer confidence.

Building a Nest Egg from Home

When I became pregnant with our first child, my husband and I both decided that I would become a stay at home mom. I did not want to have strangers raising our baby, and my husband felt more comfortable with me staying home too. I was not expecting to have so much free time though! Babies sleep a good bit, which is something I did not know. I decided to go online and see if I could make some money during my free time. That is how I found out about Alex Shelton, a man who has changed my life for the better.

My husband makes a great income, but having a baby can also be expensive, especially when thinking about the future. We also wanted to have more children, so I felt that it was never too early to start planning a nest egg for ourselves. Alex Shelton is an online guru who has been in the business for many years. He has different programs that offer to teach people who want to get into an online business the right tools to make the right decisions. I wasn’t sure what I was looking for, but I am so glad that I found this.

I was able to take a course that helped me with so much. I learned all about marketing my online business and how to make sure that I stay on top since the online world can be quite competitive. The materials that are offered to people who sign up are enormous. I also got my very own coach who was able to help me when I did hit a stumbling block. I didn’t see how to overcome it, but he was able to point me in the right direction within minutes. To have this kind of support in such a competitive market is nothing short of amazing, and it is making our lives so much better too!
