Mark Can Go Back To Work While Many In Christ Church Can't

Do you see the wisdom in having your business outside of your home country even if you live in it? Mark Ling will be able to go back to work because much of his business is located outside of New Zealand while many others will not be able to go back to work for a long time.

What you can learn from the New Zealand disaster:

1. Have your web sites hosted in an earthquake free country like Malaysia or Singapore. Do not choose Japan for your hosting since it is 80 years over the statistical earthquake it should have had in Tokyo already.

2. Diversify in other areas also so not everything you use is located in the same country. Choose safe locations for what you choose to use so that your risk is spread out among a number of safe jurisdictions and countries. I am leaving out a lot of details to allow you to come up with your own ideas about how to do this as you add to this thread.

Mark, we are glad you are safe !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AffiloblueprintPurchaseLink; (long name), there is some wisdom in what you say. I live in Wellington so we are not directly affected by the devastation in Christchurch however, in light of the situation and out of respect; the Crusaders / Hurricanes game has been called off for this weekend; Rugby is quite big here in New Zealand, especially this year (World Cup).

I would venture to suggest that while Mark can go back to work, he probably won't as his home and city come first; however it is important to note that while Mark won't be back at work, his business will continue to work for him. That's the beauty of the Internet and affiliate marketing.

In terms of hosting go for the well established hosting companies as they, more than likely, operate within a cloud; meaning that there will be several hosts connected together running out of multiple centres, located in different geographic locations, acting as one connection to the end user. For example Amazon S3 is a cloud, that's why they can offer such high availability. Even here in New Zealand we have hosting companies that operate out of multiple centres from Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland connected via fibre optic. So while Christchurch may be down the other two centres are fully operational. While not beyond the realms of possibility, it would be difficult to shut New Zealand down; while we are a small country, we are a bit bigger than many may think.

People like Bob Proctor and Robert Allen promote the idea of MSI (Multiple Streams of Income) and Mark Victor Hansen, who co-wrote 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' with Jack Canfield, is probably the best example of MSI on the planet. Whenever he meets someone he looks at the possibility of forming a joint venture. Niche marketing is an MSI example; once you have one niche making money, then start another, and another, and another, etc. That is why Affilojetpack is such a great package as you can create five streams of income and then add others.

The Internet is, without doubt, the best place to create a business; as it is relatively cheap to start, global, twenty four hours a day and the Internet itself can never be shut down. The best part is that once you have your system in place and making money you can diversify into other things, either on or offline.

I loved your Blog post Mark and hope to see you back soon.

Cheers,
John

That is sound advise. I too have a number of different websites and I make sure that they are spread out around the world.

Really good points dude!

That is the beauty of having an online business. But, I would personally prefer to have my sites hosted at servers in different parts of the world to even out the risks should something go terribly wrong in one country, instead of simply choosing a single 'earthquake-safe' country.

We need to remember that there is a possibility of other natural and 'not-so natural' potential disastears considering the current volatile state of the world.

Yes, like stay out of countries where there is political risk both right now and potentially for the future. Stay out of those places that are trending toward either supporting socialism in a big way or terrorism. IMHO Singapore is one of the best locations as it is free and is aiming to remain so.
