The tech world (and tech press) often focus on the Silicon Valley-centric world of huge VC-backed startups. And there is a good reason for that — a lot of those kinds of companies do interesting, innovative things. But as Farhad Manjoo recently wrote in The New York Times, there is another, often less reported, less traditional, and less glamourous way to build a business.
“In fact, it’s possible to create a huge tech company without taking venture capital, and without spending far beyond your means.

Believe it or not, start-ups don’t even have to be headquartered in San Francisco or Silicon Valley.”
One of the best pieces of fashion advice (stay with me) I ever got was: your shoes should match your belt which should match your watch. Coordinate all three to make a more polished look.

The ability to easily and affordably create client portals is one of our most popular features. If you are an accountant looking to make the crunch of tax time a little easier on your firm, here’s how you can create your own client portal in Onehub today.Continue reading →
We understand. The holidays are busy and you are slammed (closing those deals before the year ends!). So rather than writing a lengthy productivity blog post or doing SEO gymnastics to get some of that Star Wars traffic, we just wanted to pass along a quick note to send you warm wishes this time of year. From all of us at Onehub — happy holidays!

Today’s blog post is brought to you by the letter “e.”
There’s a saying my old boss used to tell me. “When an elephant jumps in the water, everyone gets wet.” It’s fair to say that in just about any technology sense, Google is an elephant. Earlier this week that elephant — well, did more of a hop than a full-on jump, and we are getting spritzed.
We’re not sure what the venn diagram is of our respective audiences are — but if you’ve arrived here looking for a router, may we tell you about the best enterprise file share and sync service on the market?
