I speak my truth no matter where I go, and I encourage all to do the same. Love, Live, the Truth. Peace.
Everyone has heard of Google Apps, in fact if you have an android phone chances are you use them everyday. The Marketplace is a great place to purchase apps but you can also take part in as a Google apps reseller. The reseller program is aimed at connecting clients and sellers, where the clients might not have time or need help using Google’s cloud service. As a Google apps reseller you’re responsible for helping them transition to using Google’s services and setting the applications up for your clients. There are some great advantages to being a reseller using Google’s own program and this can be done as an easy addition to any technology business since it’s all done over the internet. \
As a Google apps reseller you are responsible for your own billing and are only billed once a month by Google for the licensing uses of your customers. You’re also in charge of the entire SMB relationship so as a Google apps reseller you’re responsible for the pricing, support and all communications which gives you total control over any packages you might want to create for your clients. This means that once you set the apps up you can have an easy recurring monthly income from those clients using the service that will only continue to grow over time.
Google also helps by providing integrated software solutions in the Apps Marketplace to support your delivery of end to end client solutions. As a Google apps reseller you get a discount on the list price which helps to increase your profits and allows you to provide better value to your clients. Using their existing infrastructure also allows the Google apps reseller to focus on their services and optimize the time spent on selling and maintenance rather than creating content since Google is constantly providing that for you in the Marketplace.
My father used to tell me that the life of a mariner was easy in his day. All he had to do was hang around the marina until someone needed a hand and once aboard he was part of the crew. “They trained you on the job” he used to say but things have changed a lot since his days onboard a ship.
I remember the first time I hinted at going to a Marine College to get my certification. He couldn’t believe I was going to spend time in a classroom learning what he thought I’d be able to pick up on my own working with a skipper and a crew. I tried to tell him that things had changed in the industry since his days out on the open seas.
“How are you going to keep your job on your vessel when you’re off to school?” he asked and at first I wasn’t really sure how I was going to juggle both. That pretty much had me worried until I found out more about the Marine College I wanted to attend.
ECA Maritime College tailored the course schedule to fit around my work allowing me to keep my day job while I worked on upgrading my skills and training. It sounded like a heavy workload at first but I found out they were extremely flexible and made sure I didn’t miss any time onboard while studying at home and in the classroom. That took off a lot of pressure and allowed me to relax about how much extra time it was going to take to keep working, upgrade my skills and maintain a household as well as find time for my family.
ECA Maritime College found just the right fit for me and they will be able to do the same for you. Their interview process determined exactly how my training program was going to be designed to allow me to keep living and working without interruption.
Maybe if there was such a marine college when my dad started hanging around the docks, he could have become a much better sailor!
