Wherever we’ve found ourselves, our natural ability to network has helped us to adapt to new environments and of course, this now also includes the online environment.

Tweak Your Biz: An international business community with roots in Ireland

    Tweak Your Biz has been built on community, is successful because of community and will be even bigger this year because of community.
    I am proud and privileged to be part of that community. Thank you Niall, Anita, Sian and my colleagues for a great place to “work” and to all our readers for providing the channel and interaction.
    Well done all!

    Nial: Thanks for giving additional reasons to write for this site! I am on board and will start writing on a regular basis after I have celebrated St. Patty’s Day… ;)

  • http://tweakyourbiz.com/ Niall Devitt

    Thanks Martin, looking forward to reading your first Tweak Your Biz post.

  • http://tweakyourbiz.com/ Niall Devitt

    Hi Elaine, And we’re proud and privileged to have you!

  • Brooke Brown

    Thanks for the warm welcome Sian. This post was geared towards businesses, but thank you for your feedback.

  • http://www.ahaingroup.com/ Sian Phillips

    Oh absolutely. Being self employed and mostly working from home I would theoretically be a business – although obviously not needing big downloads thankfully

  • Brooke Brown

    Not taking anything from being self employed from home. Just wanted to share some insights into internet connections themselves.

  • Dave Anderson

    Thank you for the positive feedback, Sian. It’s great to hear that you have experienced the benefits of cloud accounting firsthand.

  • http://www.ahaingroup.com/ Sian Phillips

    Thanks for this post Justin. Like Niall says it is quite scary but it’s great that you have shared them with our readers as being aware will at least (hopefully) mean they can be prepared. I look forwards to your next post

  • jonbyrum

    Thanks Sian! I think cloud accounting is really going to make many small businesses lives easier. As a small business owner, it’s much easier for me to share my books with my accountant — in fact, I give her a log in — because my books are online.

  • http://www.ahaingroup.com/ Sian Phillips

    Personally I find it much better – cuts down on travelling time which can be a waste plus often an accountant will work silly hours (I know only too well) so if it’s online it’s easy to nip in and sort stuff out.

  • Derek Hitch

    At very first thanks Sian for appreciation. And yes hacking of website is increasing day by day and becoming concern subject for website admin hence these precautions are necessary.

    It’s really hard to ignore the power of social media. Every business should take advantage of this powerful tool in reaching their audience. Thanks for sharing this very informative article Sandra.
