Top Business Technology Trends Happening Now

I remember when computers…ones you could set up in a business office, were starting to get popular. They frightened me.

DOS. Floppy Disks. Bytes. Memory. I had no idea what those things were. Heck, I didn’t even know what “electronic mail” was.  How would I ever be able to understand all of this “new” technology? How would I ever be able to set a computer up? Who would show me how to use a computer? And, what was the “World Wide Web?”

The World Wide Web:

The World Wide Web is a system of Internet servers that support specially formatted documents. The documents are formatted in a markup language called HTML (HyperText Markup Language) that supports links to other documents, as well as graphics, audio, and video files. This means you can jump from one document to another simply by clicking on hot spots. Not all Internet servers are part of the World Wide Web.”


I obviously learned this stuff. Most of us have. There was no choice* in the matter. I even use “electronic mail” on a daily basis. Go here to get one delivered to your inbox. And, I write stuff that’s shared all over the world via the World Wide Web.

I'm The Franchise King®, Joel Libava. I help prospective franchise owners avoid bank account emptying mistakes.
For 23 years, I’ve been showing people how to make smart, informed decisions on franchises to buy, and I can help you, too!
P.S. I'm not a franchise consultant/broker.

Joel is Highly Principled
There are many people in the franchise business who claim to to be experts in the field. Unfortunately many of them lack both knowledge and integrity. Joel, however, is without question one of the most qualified and principled people I know, in or out of his industry."
