Michael squared do it again!Connecting SA most trusted business experts & tapping into the best quality source of entrepreneurial knowledge & resources on-line via …. No Picket Fence

So just this evening I was moaning and wandering how on earth someone in the digital, technical, entrepreneurial and just plain business world in itself is supposed to balance work and play. Keep up to date with technology changes which effect not only digital and social media marketing (my game) but every industry and company, from an SME to a large corporate,  in today’s  internet and tech driven world.

My latest update ” too many on-line tools and communities can only spell the recipe to of a disastrous broth of an alphabet soup from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Stumblupon, Whatsapp, BBM, CSS, Blogging, Micro-Blogging, Niche on-line communities, groups, timeline’s, brand pages….  ” the list runs over the pot and burns us out as water to a hot plate…

And then I get the next message… Via Linkedin…  because it’s from a Mister Michael Bouchier (LinkedIn contact) … I know I have to explore!

Subject: Site that connects you with entrepreneurs in SA
Hi Joanne,I noticed your profile again today, and think you would be very interested in what we’re doing in www.nopicketfence.co.za – would be great to have you join us and connect with other entrepreneurs.

Ciao,
Michael

And well I guess as it goes Eureka… the answer to our problems.
Find online sites and tools which fit with YOUR situation and in most cases offer you info and connections from your own country!

Connect with and  engage on a business level with people in the same situation as you! That way you don’t get spammed with irrelevant info but rather find valuable, niche and segmented information applicable to South Africa,  which will assist you in dealing with your everyday duties by simply asking a question via a connection or mentor or searching the site for a previously asked item akin to yours.

So … I  login on to the site in one easy step as it is connected to FB and Twitter … do a quick selection of items which interest me and there we go.. One small step out of web surfing for Jojo … One giant leap again for these two who never cease to amaze with what they develop @michael_Cowen & @MichaelBouchier and I have a feeling this might just be one of their best yet! www.nopicketfence.co.za

So what is it and why my change of recipe?


No Picket Fence – Ask, Share, Connect

Internationally, over 97% of entrepreneurs won’t create wealth. As a South African entrepreneur, we aim to improve your chances of success – substantially.

This site is focused on helping you reach true entrepreneurial success. How do we do this?

No Picket Fence is designed to help you:

Make Better Decisions

Being an entrepreneur demands that you step beyond your comfort zone. Every day you’re dealing with new and difficult things. Simple business things like finance, marketing, HR policies and the other stuff you have to do to make your business work.

No Picket Fence is your entrepreneurial shortcut. You get to ask seasoned experts for their insight and advice on the issues and challenges you face on a daily basis.

And yes, someone probably has the same question and will have asked it. That’s why we create the best quality of questions and answers to help you. No Picket Fence is your information network, allowing you to make better decisions.

Connect With Seasoned Entrepreneurs

Often it’s not what you know, but who you know that matters. Networking is key to your business success. And within the No Picket Fence community you have the opportunity to meet many entrepreneurs and experts in different fields. You’ll be able to build relationships with people who have walked this path before, and to receive their unqualified support.

Tell Your Story

Moving from being a survivor to a true entrepreneur is hard. The challenges your business faces on a daily basis can wear you down, which can hold you back. The ability to tell your story within our storyboards allows you to share with others, display your growth, and build a network of people who can really help you move from startup and survival to true entrepreneurial success.
