Find Your Business Niche: Find a business niche that is fun and in-demand then stay consistent with it because, if you don't find a niche then it's hard to get succeed nowadays.
There's a lot of people out there who are trying to do the same thing that you're trying to do. So if you're trying to do something in a different way, you have to stand out.
You have to do something that is so unique or so different that you're the only one doing it. And it's not always easy to stand out because there are so many things out there that are already being done. But if you do, it will be worth it because you'll eventually stand out.

SyncWin & Toolonomy Future: Initially we decided just to move all the deals-related activities away from SyncWin to Toolonomy which we already mentioned on our Facebook group as well as in the past newsletters.
However, now we are planning to completely move all the content around BizDev Tools (including SaaS, Software & WordPress) away from SyncWin to Toolonomy and then we would focus on creating dedicated Online Business & Entrepreneurship related content for SyncWin which was our main vision when we founded SyncWin.
And the Toolonomy would be the Hub for Biz-Dev Tools-related discussion, deals, and resources that we're currently doing on SyncWin. By the way, we're still not decided how and when we would proceed with this separation so stay tuned for the final update on this matter.

WordPress ACF Pro Controversy: The Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) marketing team at Delicious Brains has stirred up a lot of controversy after sending a sales email to its lifetime license holders, asking them to consider signing up for a discounted subscription. Despite ACF's explicit promise that it would never force its users to pay for updates in the future, the sales email implies that the development team needs appreciation in the form of annual subscriptions.
CMA Asked Facebook to Sell Giphy: The Competition and Markets Authority requires Facebook (now called Meta) to sell Giphy, after finding that the deal could harm people on social media, especially users and UK advertisers.
Cloudflare & IndexNow: IndexNow is now available by over 60,000 websites that use Cloudflare in less than two months after it was announced by Microsoft. It is an open protocol that any search engine can participate in to enable website owners to have their pages and content instantly indexed by the search engine.
GoDaddy Data Breach: At any given point, there are almost 2 billion websites on the internet. At GoDaddy, 62 million websites are hosted. While it's wise to go with one of the most established web hosting companies, a large number of GoDaddy customers recently learned that can also make it a big target. A recently discovered data breach has exposed more than 1 million user records.
