Many web design companies provide services for individuals and small businesses who want to build their own web site but don’t want to waste their own time building from scratch.

The creation of a good web design for a specific site is a part of a practicable and profitable online presence. Some companies offer only an attractive design while some may not have highly engaging designs but have the knowledge on how to make your site easy to promote on the web.

  • Review Completed Projects. You can start by first deciding on what kind of site you want and look for similar or related sites. If you see an interesting website with the features you like, background check who the provider is and get in touch to know if they can offer you an all-in package that fits your budget.
  • Browse Listings. Look at listings on for firms and freelance providers whose skills fit your requirement. See what services they offer for what price. Create a checklist of the features you like such as  the design, graphic elements,  structure of database, web search engine optimization concerns and the hosting plan you think you need and layout your timetable so they know what you expect from them while they quote you price and see if you will agree on a contract with them.
  • Establish Long-term Relationships. Look for a company who has an all-in package for you. The web design company should be able to offer everything your site will need to be successful and effective so that you won’t have to go through the headache of having to hire other graphic designers to do specific elements for you in an aesthetic, user-friendly, and search engine-friendly layout.

Getting rich is possible but it’s not an easy task. Working hard, sacrificing your health and even relationship. But for a lucky few, getting rich means doing less effort as possible but still making tons of cash.

Here’s how they did it:

Bet and Win the Lottery
Lottery is probably the easiest way for you to get rich. But your odds of winning are pretty low and besides, most of the lottery winners lost their money as fast as soon as they got hold of the cash. (I’m lazy with this)

Inherit a fortune
True, inheriting a vast fortune is pretty awesome but only if you know how to handle it. (looking at my geneaology tree now and fumbling for old relatives!)

Invest for a really long period
Investing long-term in good assets can definitely pay-off. Markets rise and fall but if you hold into it, chances are you’re going to reap a bountiful harvest.(I’m on this one!)

Marry Rich, Divorce Rich
Well, this is probably good for girls, since marrying a rich man requires efforts of almost zero to none. Just look at Trump, his current wife and ex-wives. (I value marriage and do not advocate divorce!)

Be Born as a Royal
The remaining royals of this world remain one of the wealthiest. Their net worth averages millions, even billions. (I’m a commoner..can I just be like Kate Middleton—now Her Royal Highness Duchess of Cambridge? [daydreaming in her wedding gown while staring at her royal wedding poster…])


Things are starting to free up a bit in my life … I’m getting a little bit more free time, so what exactly am I planning to do with it? . I feel the need to take necessary steps and to make them a commitment I should be able to follow through because even if it’s free time, I feel that it doesn’t have to be without structure.

I don’t want this time to drain away without taking advantage of it… so here I put together a short list of a few things I’m curious about and places I’d like to explore:

1. See the local art fair and exhibit.  


Artspace Warehouse 

2. Experience Chicago Underground music scene.

3. Get my personal avatar t-shirt printed

4. gather up my stationery design collection and get them printed too

5. reorganize my digital files into my new netbook!
