Personally I stopped using amp pages. Sure, it speeds up your site a little bit if it's a blog but I feel they're a worst user experience than having your regular site load on a faster server.

The reason you're most likely seeing a high bounce rate because if someone is reading on Google News they can scroll though though the amp articles by swiping.


I wouldn't necessarily look for someone that has a business coach. I will look more for a consultant that specializes in your industry. You need someone that can help you improve your internal processes such as cost, production time, profit, etc.


Get out of your head. You're talking yourself out of something before you even get started. Not many people are good or even like customer support. I personally don't. However it's part of the job and you have to learn how to become better at it as you go. Just take the risk and start your business. If it doesn't work out then you take what you learned from it and start another one.


Just do it. You're over thinking which is killing you. Just start and build as you go. When I started I had NO clue how to do anything but fix computers. I didn't know how to network or gain more customers. I just went out there and network my tail off and learned as I went. Talking to random people at an event was not in my comfort zone. Now, I kill it every time I go.

Bottom line, just start. Fear is fake. If it's not going to kill you then it's all made up in your head.


It would be best to get your own business account with your name as a DBA so you can deposit clients checks. That way your expenses are written out as a business expenses.

As for putting funds into your business you can do that. Most businesses owners fund their own business until they have cash from clients. I've done that before when I had to pay for a business expensive but didn't want to use my personal cards.

It is best to keep everything separate. Mixing business and personal assets can become a mess. If you ever got sued someone could pierce the corporate veil that way too.


Could take some of what Patrick Bet-David mentions in his videos.

You won't have any issues as long as your site does not slow down because of your new host. Matt Cutts had a video back in 2009 (I think) that says the IP and the host won't effect your ranking.


With Gmail you can also set reply base on which email was sent. So example if they emailed bob@domain1.com you can set to to reply back from that email and not your main Gmail or Google Apps email.


By not focusing on being the CEO for the name and focus on your customers, employees, and the services you offer.


Some people it's security. They're afraid that their credit card information will be stolen. Personally, I pay everything online.

You also have the older generation that feel more safe writing a check and paying a bill online.
