New Beginnings

Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Chinese New Year celebrations have come and gone, and spring is in the air. Now is the time to reflect back on where we have been, and where we are headed in the future. This is the Year Of The Horse (Ma) which is a proud, noble animal. Traditionally Chinese New Years is all about celebrating Long Life and renewed Health and Prosperity

It’s been a while since I last posted to the Blog, seems like forever. A lot has happened since my last post, and I thought it was time to let you know what has been going on.

For those of you who know me, then you know I am always moving fast. My mind moves extremely fast, so it’s always a challenge for people to keep up with me.  Recently I have made a conscious decision to slow down my mental pace. It’s a struggle, but I’m doing it.

Problem is, now I’m accelerating my physical pace. Just OCD!

Over the last 2 1/2 years we have been working hard to build our Acesse business. Now seeing the hard work we put in is starting to bring serious results. I’ve put in a hard travel schedule over the last year, visiting Acesse Consultants and taking the Acesse message around the world.

I’m not as young as I used to be, and just can’t physically work as hard as I am used to. This is a hard reality to deal with, but time marches on, and we are all getting older.

I plan to slow down the travel for a few months, and get some much needed rest and family time. Fortunately I’ve been able to surround myself with good people, (younger/ smarter) who are able to do much of the heavy lifting, allowing me to devote more time to directing and guiding the business.

Recently, on a trip to Malaysia, I was talking to a couple of our Sales Consultants and one of them was talking about Internet Companies, who generally had Young Founders, and then mentioned that our company had an Elderly Founder. We all laughed. This kind of caught me off guard, and I thought really… do people think of me as Elderly?

I know my hair has grayed a little and I’m not as slim as I used to be, but Elderly, wow, now that’s a hard one to have to accept. Oh well, hopefully I still have a few good years left, before they put me out to pasture.

Anyway, you know in the day to day running of the Acesse Business, it seems like there’s just never enough hours in a day, to do everything I want to do. One of the things I enjoy is writing, and I haven’t had the time this past year to keep up with the Blog. I also have dreams of writing a book about my experiences in business on the Internet, and who knows when I will find the time to get this done.

But I will make you this promise, this year I will post at least once per month to the blog, and let you know how I’m doing, and what’s going on with Acesse. Over the years I been aproched by other bloggers who would like to contribute to steverenner.com and I have finally decided to allow them to begin posting

Now as we embark on the Year Of The Horse, of the five elements, this is the year of Fire and Wood and Fire will be the dominant element. A well known Fung Shui master has predicted that.

“Fire will burn so strong that  it will cause an Explosion”, meaning the Economic Bubble will burst causing a slowdown, which could last for some time.

And, “Fire Melts Metal”, meaning that the Financial Industry will suffer a melt down, especially in the west.

Fortunately, this should not negatively effect Acesse, or our Sales Consultants. Actually this could really be a good thing for us. As an Internet Service Provider, it doesn’t matter if business is up or down, people will always need their Internet Services.

As we introduce exciting new products and services this year, we will attract more Acesse Members, that will ultimately enable us to provide even better results for our Advertising Customers.

So we look ahead to the Year Of The Horse as a Big Leap Ahead For Acesse.

YouChat

You Can Make Money With YouChat

So what will make YouChat stand out from the pack? While YouChat will be essentially Free, and will be ad supported. Acesse plans to monetize YouChat by offering Premium Services, and allow Acesse Consultants to earn money by promoting the service, and related products and services as they become available.

Incorporating the “Best Of The Best” features of Mobile Messaging, along with new proprietary features, YouChat will undoubtedly command a major share of the huge Mobile Messaging market.

With close to a Billion registered users  currently, Mobile Messaging is still in it’s infancy. “There is a huge emerging market in Mobile Messaging, and the strong will survive, ” says Steve Renner, Creator of the YouChat Service. YouChat has unique features which will set it apart from the competition.

Mobile Messaging is fragmented, with popular local services in different countries with services like: WeChat – China, Line – Japan, Kakoa – Korea, WhatsApp US.

YouChat plans to offer a unified platform, that transcends geographic borders, and languages. The appeal of YouChat is universal, as people everywhere understand pictures and videos, and with the multi-language platform, members will be able to chat in their own language.

Imagine live video chats with friends and family members in multiple locations around the world, all for free. The business applications are endless.

YouChat will no doubt be one of the top Mobile Messaging services in the world.

Tablets To Eclipse PCs

Tablets To Eclipse PCs – International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker, has reported that tablet shipments are expected to grow 58.7% year-over-year in 2013 reaching 229.3 million units, up from 144.5 million units last year. IDC now projects that tablet shipments will exceed those of portable PCs this year. The PC market is expected to see negative growth for the second consecutive year. IDC expects tablet shipments will outpace the entire PC market (laptops and desktops combined) by 2015.

tablets_01

Ryan Reith, Program Manager for IDC’s Mobility Trackers is quoted as saying ”What started as a sign of tough economic times has quickly shifted to a change in the global computing paradigm with mobile being the primary benefactor. Tablets surpassing portables in 2013, and total PCs in 2015, marks a significant change in consumer attitudes about compute devices and the applications and ecosystems that power them. IDC continues to believe that PCs will have an important role in this new era of computing, especially among business users. But for many consumers, a tablet is a simple and elegant solution for core use cases that were previously addressed by the PC.”

The IDC report goes on to say; While Apple has been at the forefront of the tablet revolution, the current market expansion has been increasingly fueled by low-cost Android devices.

Jitesh Ubrani, IDC Research Analyst stated; ”Apple’s success in the education market has proven that tablets can be used as more than just a content consumption or gaming device. These devices are learning companions, and as tablet prices continue to drop, the dream of having a PC for every child gets replaced with the reality that we can actually provide a tablet for every child.”

Another major shift in the tablet market is in screen sizes. The first generation iPad, with a 9.7-inch display, was the sweet spot for tablets. Then the 7-inch Android-based tablets began to gain traction in the market. Apple then introduced the iPad mini in the fourth quarter of 2012, and in just 6 months the sub-8-inch has dominated in total shipments.

Its inevitable that Tablets will become the dominant way people get online. Along with Smartphones, Mobile Devices are the future, and like it or not the old home PC looks to be going the way of the old console TV. Time Marches On!
