Many individuals that are just starting out into the business world have never conducted a on land business and are starting with fresher business ideas and have don’t have to get rid of old habits that they may have formed.

When first starting out it may be that you are running a e-commerce business and are using platforms such as WordPress and WooCommerce.  A lot of people find these to be quite complex and a better alternative may be a simpler platform such as Shopify.   The reason for this being is that there is a lot of the work is done for you when it comes to the technical aspects of setting up an e-commerce shop online. You don’t have to worry as much about the bandwith or worry about the server constraints.
