Your Joomla! Business Dream

There are many ways to the top of a mountain but not everyone gets to plant their flag there. Failing to fulfill your business dream isn't necessarily because what you have to offer isn't wanted or needed. Failure is often the result of dream robbers.

Maybe your dream is to have your own business, or simply to work full time for a good company. You spend so much of your life working, why spend it being miserable or hating what you do? Why just dream about something better? Perhaps you have already been robbed of a dream. Wouldn't you like your dream to come true? Let's do something about it.

Joomla Truisms

Joomla! Truisms are valuable things related Joomla! that I have found to be true. Some of these I learned from others along the way and a few I picked up from the school of hard knocks. Learning from experience is not aways pleasant especially when the thing you are trying to solve is urgent and evasive. I'm not certain how many of my hours were spent searching for the answers to some of these problems but it was significant.

These truisms are not widely known but they should be. Learn about them and they will keep you anchored and from drifting into problems later.

JandBeyond 2013

Need a hot Joomla! tip? Make an investment in yourself and go to JandBeyond 2013. One year ago I spoke at JandBeyond in the The Dolce Hotel in Bad Nauheim, Germany and lots of great things came out of it. Now I am on my way to Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands, to talk about Joomla! once again.

At JandBeyond all kinds of Joomla! experts share their knowledge, tricks, and experience in a spirit of open source friendlness and fun, and do Joomlers know how to have fun! Last years event was amazing and I wouldn't miss this event.

So here we go again, what shall we talk about this time?

Risk

Extensions are one of the reasons that Joomla! is so popular. They add value and functionality to your website by extending the ability of Joomla! beyond it's core. Extensions are not without risk. Anything that you add to a Joomla! site increases risk. Risk management is highly important for the sites you build. Nothing is worse than a hack or fatal error that brings that beautiful website you worked so hard on to a standstill. Not to mention how everything else now takes a back seat until the emergency caused by these situations are resolved.
