Hi again,

Greetings again from Montego Bay, Jamaica!

I finally started my MBA studies this month- really excited! BUT (a big but),

I am equally conscious of the long hours I'll have to put in. In fact they told me I need up to 20 hours per week!

How will I manage that with a full day job, an active website to maintain, plus my active community involvement?

...Pray for me.

On the positive side though, thanks to this very website, I dashed the idea of taking a loan to pay for my tuition- my website is/will be taking care of my monthly installment!

By the way, I have some really exciting news to announce next month so please don't miss the next edition.

The Latest on

  1. Those Green Links!

    If you have been around the website recently, you would have seen some [beautiful :-)] green links on some of the pages.

    If you do, don't be alarmed, they are just another type of in-text ads called infolinks.

    They provide more information to my visitors, based on the highlighted text but equally important, they represent another stream of income for me! Whenever a visitor clicks, I get paid.

    Please don't start clicking now OK, let's do it fair.

  2. The HOT fiery Jamaica Q&A Forum

    That said, I'll need your help in answering and posting comments to the many questions. Will you help?
