It is not always easy to navigate your way through a website, it is all too easy to follow a link, and then another and another only to find that you are no longer sure how to get back to where you started.
I have done it and I often give up in frustration and leave a site rather than continue to hunt for whatever it is that I am after.
Please though do as I say, not as I do...
To make it a bit easier for all of my very valuable, much cherished visitors I have added two functions to the site to help you find whatever it is that you are looking for. The first is this page.
All of the pages are listed according to their place within the structure of the site. The tier two pages all have their own display box and you will find links to the related tier three pages within each box. Ad I add pages to the site I will attempt to update this page, but if you suspect that there are some pages not yet listed here you can check out the blog page which lists new pages with the most recent additions at the top of the page.
The second feature is the search function which is located at the bottom of every page. Just type in a keyword and you can search the site for any pages that have that keyword in them.

Just like every other kind of business, an online business need to be planned very carefully if you want to create a viable and sustainable business.

Definitions of Key Terms and Phrases
Check out this page for definitions if you are not sure about the meaning of some of the key terms and phrases used on the pages of this site.
I quite regularly use websites like dictionary.com to look up the meanings for words that I am not familiar with, or words that are being used in an unfamiliar context and I find that it makes my experiences with the writing of others much more informative.
That way I am better able to understand the text and I get to expand my vocabulary at the same time. But it does necessitate me navigating away from the site that I am engaging with and sometimes that can be a bit distracting. So to avoid putting any of my readers in that situation I am including a page (this one) that has definitions of any key words or phrases that I think might need to be explained.
