Using PTCL & WordPress – Two Unusual Issues I Faced Today

Now I would say GOOGLE & GoTrusted VPN rescued me. Issue #1: Client Site will not Open at PTCL My ISP A very loyal client of mine, who outsources all programming of her business to me, was having issues with order checkouts. I needed to look into this and fix it asap. I could see that site was working fine as using proxy I could see it working fine. Problem was that I could not login to it and do the job as public proxies are unsafe... I skyped my younger brother, Ismail, that can he open this site in his pc in office. He replied that site was not opening there too as they too were using PTCL. I told him my situation... he said why not use VPN and get rid of PTCL stuff. WOW, even I have paid membership with VPN for clients' … [Read more...]

Surprise – The Biggest Bonus So Far & Joy of Working

Yesterday, an interesting thing happened. A first time client of us, who trusted his website to us to build as per his mockups and ideas, sent me extra bonus on the top of the job... and Man it was the biggest percentage of Bonus I have ever gotten! Guess what percentage? 5% of the original project amount? 10%, 25% ? 50%? Yes it was 50%!!! My first thought was that client forgot the interim payment he had already made, lol for few seconds it was test of my integrity and honesty (Thank God I was able to cope my greedy instinct and was going to let him know that) so I opened the customer support center... and there I read awesome reply already posted by him. Let me quote: With regards to payment, I am delighted with the work you have … [Read more...]

Market Samurai – Great Customer Support

Hi, I remember listening Bob, Founder of Godaddy, say this, "Anyone can sell domains or hosting, it is the customer support where you can WIN the hearts and make them your repeat business.

Fire the Complex, Go for Simple

It is very bad to be an entrepreneur and also try to prove the world how genius I am by presenting complex solutions! Man it has happened to me and  often i find myself in this trap. I see a simple problem in the market, and when I try to solve this, wow I have got the simple solution…but my damn genius mind will not accept that so simple solution. My genius mind wants me to bring something which makes people wonder, which is so complex and difficult that no one in the world can do that. That is great if I am going to run for Nobel prize..but for simple business I observe that simple solutions always win, Simple is HOT! Simple and Easy is what is called Miracle! I tried to come with a graph, a grid to help focus our energies, … [Read more...]

Forget about todo list, Manage Your Energy

Yes, I was talking with my friend, and we concluded this: "You know if you can manage your Energy....you cannot stop yourself doing Great Things..." How do i know this? Can I verify that above statement is true and practical? Yes, I can say it is 100% correct. As just this week I have been following a routine which generates huge personal energy in my body and after that I have been able to complete many unfinished to-dos which were taking months to finish them. Here is another observation my friend observed: see i used to work and be productive WITHOUT caring about health, energy, sleeping,  etc. so i just thought i could continue like this.. but i think my body has had enough.. i've abused my system so much.. i'm … [Read more...]
