I started to learn English in third grade (at age 9). I have studied German for six years, but I haven't practiced for a long time. I had Spanish for one year, but don't remember it. I will start to study Interlingua again. http://egoist.blogspot.com/2006/08/interlingua-is-not-newspeak.html I stayed in Hungary for three months and concluded that it probably is one of the most difficult languages in the world. Swedish is piece of cake compared with the language from the Magyar country! ;)"
How about renting a virtual office address at for example World Trader Center or Regus? Is the "suite address" really the physical location of the mail box center? I have had a couple of mail boxes at local postal offices during the years, but now I have a mailing address at a co-working & pre-incubator place in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden."
Shawn, Yes, a mail box is an inexpensive way of having a physical presence and contact point. I am using the co-working space for meeting other entrepreneurs and business minded people, going through my to-do list, etc. At this particular co-working space, you could rent it and use as much as you want, e.g., once a week, and pay accordingly. I think that we will see new alternatives of business meeting places in the future."
Ivan Widjaya: It is hard to pick a hosting company nowadays. Most of them are good and the only thing that is different at the first glance is the pricing options. As an experienced purchaser, I look at mainly three things: quality, price and delivery (lead) time of a product. I wanted a reliable service that was easy to set up and had a SEO advantage. Sometime ago I listened to an episode of Net @ Night with Leo Laporte and Amber MacArthur and I heard a commercial for Squarespace web publishing platform. You could test it for free for two weeks. I registered a site called egosoletrader.squarespace.com and then transferred my EgoSoleTrader domain from my old host InmotionHosting to Squarespace's preferred partner Nettica. This process took some time due to a complication with the credit card payment, but the support departments at both Nettica and Squarespace helped me out in a good way. I would describe Squarespace as a combination of an easy to use Content Management System, a blog & web site tool and a hosting company. It is super simple to edit your site, add stuff to it and your really get the result at the end, in the way that you see it in your (WYSIWYG) web editor. I have recently started a new blog on tea - www.GOT-Tea-Party.com - and I found a nice template and layout to use. I really like how easy it is to get started with your site, without worrying about all kind of parameters to set up and adjust before you could get going. I have started a new series of EGO podcasting interviews on Blog Talk Radio and I have asked Squarespace if I could interview someone from the company in the near future. I think it is interesting to see a new type of provider in the jungle of hosting providers and web publishing systems."
