Facebook can be a bit confusing when you first start a business. We all know about personal Facebook profiles, sure, but what about pages? What’s the difference between them, and more importantly which one should you be using to build your business?

As a business develops there is an interesting change to the dynamic. At the beginning generally you do as many tasks yourself, in order to save money and get the business on its feet as quickly at possible at the lowest cost.However as your business builds you begin to realise that there are some tasks that could be completed more effectively or faster either by someone else or using another method, therefore saving money long term as your attentions could be focused elsewhere to better overall effect. So should you consider outsourcing?

I’ve always fancied the idea of a Mifi device. I don’t travel a lot with my business, but I do spend a lot of time out of the house waiting for the children to do this and that, and it’s handy to use that time catching up on social media and similar (it’s necessary for work – really…). Some places I wait have great Wifi connections and others not so great, so I do find myself pulling a lot of phone data each month.
