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.
