The future has began with the digital technology age today. From video-cams, landlines, instant messaging and reading, the internet has transformed a new way of life.
With online virtual communities and social networking, one does not need to travel thousands of miles to meet and learn about society and culture.
Expressing emotions and ideas are ways to create a real sense of healing especially when humans go through difficult times in their lives. Understanding human ordeals is hard especially if we have never experienced the same hardships and situations.
It is no longer assumptions towards realities and analyzing trends but listening to people. On the other end, the listener has to have the compassion and sentiment to elicit a more positibe attitude.
This is not just about the business aspects of creating niche but also sharing personal experiences over life. The key is simply accepting what is present and then move on towards a new beginning. This is the real message depicted on the ideology behind why we have constantly promoted the online virtual community.
Some stories of friends have great similarity to ours and we all agreed that we are not recession proof.
In the few years, the internet giants of the books industries have made very good mechanisms of maintaining, selecting
and dropping small brick and mortar home based retailers. Without the big guys even having their own masssive inventory stocks,
the small guys are the ones buying and resselling, the develop quality and shipping standards, make money through services,
commissions and fees and most of all the consumer’s payment which they use as cash flow as they have scheduled payment
after a week, two weeks or even a month after finally paying the small guys. In the meantime the small guy only has two days
from receipt of order to deliver to the customer in good quality and fastest way.
So it is still the samll guys who get ding, scolded or even expelled if these rules are not followed of if the customer complaints.
So in turn the consumer does not want to buy a book online sometimes as they are not sure if the book ever get on time.

A few weeks before the inauguration of the 44th President Barack Obama of the United States change has been the epitome
yet online technology and the way economics run might finally be the real way out of the financial crisis so deep globally
nowadays. With the Feds infusing money into the system the traditional way, people are stagerring to sell their checrished

Columbus Day, Oct. 8 most of the Westfield stores in the Northern California area had some Halloween stuff. However, they had more Christmas decors and trees coming out of their shelves. Toys, huge, huge sale prices from 20 to 70% off can be found at Walmart, Even Internet Shopping sites are showcasing some of the sellers geared toward gift giving and the likes,. Looks like if we can adjust X’mas to be earlier in Octgober we would.
I think the idea is get to make wallets open so people can start spending. A typical Sunday afternoon would be foods, movies, games, and shopping. Today, it’s more foods, either a movie or a game only, window shopping, or grocery shopping. The shopping even though tempting is kinda hard when you think of the credit card bills and collectors.
In the late 80’s I remember doing hallmark greeting cards made from special natural paper. We also created an entire product line concept that will go with it like notebooks, journals, pen holders making a collection. Yet we also had to manufacturer products geared towards people’s income bracket.
I think today is the best time to create products that can be ordinary basic things that we use on the daily basis and add some kind of color, decor, art value so we won’t be ashamed in wrapping them up to give as presents for the holidays.
Any thoughts out there?
