  • Oh yeah? Prove it! By Josh Mehlman on the 30th January 2009. When we started  working on this month’s business coaches feature, there were plenty of people who told me business coaches were all snake-oil merchants and self-help gurus like Brad Goodman in The Simpsons: “I may not have a lot of ‘credentials’ or…
  • Ignore the voices of doom By Josh Mehlman on the 19th November 2008 The last month hasn’t been a great time to watch the news.

  • Making a prophet By Josh Mehlman on the 20th August 2008. Predicting the future is always asking for trouble.

Even more excited are the advertising sales people at technology and media websites around…
  • What’s your purpose? By Josh Mehlman on the 4th July 2008 I’m really chuffed to be the new editor of Nett.

Technology and small business are a great match. The information revolution has turned…
  • Domain name landgrab is inevitable By Josh Mehlman on the 27th June 2008 News that the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has voted to release (potentially) an unlimited number of top-level domain names instantly makes me think of the TV series Deadwood.The western historical drama series is set in the gold-rush town of Deadwood in the 1870s.
