As one of the founders of Internet Solutions (IS), Ronnie Apteker has already achieved great success in the business world – having developed the company from a start-up venture in 1993.

Continuing on our previous article – ‘A cost effect and easy way to publish a book,’ Immanuel Suttner describes the ingenious ways he used the Internet to get his book off the ground. The Internet was used to collaborate with parties sitting oceans apart, to raising money to print the book, all the way through to getting the book on shelves across South Africa in time for the opening of the Soccer World Cup. You may be asking yourself what the book would look like? Well below is an extract, along with two spreads of the completed book.
When his publisher pulled out at the last minute, Immanuel Suttner was faced with a dilemma. To get into a long legal wrangle with the publisher, to abandon the project, or to go ahead and self publish. Self publishing meant taking on all the financial risks of producing a book, with no certainty as to whether the book would sell, or end up as a white elephant.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is coming to South Africa in May. The movie was created by the same team that brought us the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy on was shot on location in Ouarzazate in Morocco.
The fast-breaking storm of social networking has left marketers flailing about for shelter, a path to the calm in the eye of the storm, or at least a way to harness the energy in the turmoil. Some are turning to self-appointed experts, and some try to learn it as they go along. Somewhere in between comes a new guide to ‘Facebook Marketing’, with an umbrella of a sub-title that goes ‘Leverage Social Media to Grow Your Business’. Does it live up to its promises? ARTHUR GOLDSTUCK tests it against the social weather.
“The Mobile Office””, the latest book by technology writer and Gadget editor Arthur Goldstuck, reveals the true cost of connecting a small office or a mobile worker to the Internet – and sounds the death knell for dial-up access.
Cape Town-based author Lauren Beukes’s critically acclaimed debut novel, Moxyland, a speculative urban thriller set in South Africa, has been released as an ebook by Electric Book Works – and in the process has become the first ebook to contain an embedded music soundtrack. The soundtrack was compiled by African Dope Records to suit the mood and feel of the book …
Dummies guides have always undersold themselves, almost by definition, as they imply good advice only for the most uninitiated of novices. Sometimes, this is almost an absurdity, as Creating Web Pages for Dummies reveals with its 9-books-in-1 approach. But trying to be all things to all designers is also not the answer, as ARTHUR GOLDSTUCK discovers.””,””body-href””:””””}]”

As one of the founders of Internet Solutions (IS), Ronnie Apteker has already achieved great success in the business world ‚ having developed the company from a start-up venture in 1993. He has since left IS and applied his entrepreneurial expertise to several online ventures and technology start-ups. In his new book, Funny Business: The Secrets of an accidental entrepreneur, he explores this journey with author Gus Silber, sharing his hilarious insight into the world of a serial entrepreneur. ‚In our country, we are surrounded by stories, many of them uplifting and unforgettable. The World Cup story, from earlier this year – although it seems like a decade ago now – united the nation and captured the world’s imagination. That kind of story is one in a billion. So when Gus Silber approached me with an idea for a book that captures the lighter side of business, I got excited,‚ said Apteker who has great praise for the renowned author. ‚Gus is a fantastic writer and has a sharp sense of humour and a great insight into life in general. We also had the opportunity to take the lessons we have learnt here at Internet Solutions and present them in an entertaining and compelling volume of stories,‚ said Apteker at the recent IS conference – Internetix ‚ where delegates were each given a copy of the book before the launch. For Apteker, the book is not just about a collection of entertaining business stories, but it is insight into what it takes to make it as an entrepreneur. ‚What started out as two bagel-eating guys talking about the spirit of entrepreneurship, resulted in what I believe is a very cool book of stories about business and life. It’s a book that explores the way the world works, how to get things done, and why stuff happens. It’s about why people sometimes succeed against their expectations, and why people sometimes fail despite their best efforts and intentions. Talent and competence are two very different things. While many people in the world have talent and enthusiasm, a lot of them don’t win, and vice versa. Yes, a lot of people win without much talent, and with sloppy work ethics. What is the connection between being smart and winning in business? Is there a connection at all?‚ ‚Universities are full of very clever Professors with no money, and the world is full of crazy characters who are loaded with money. Of course, there are also a lot of smart people who have built big businesses. But the bottom line, whether you are smart or not, is that there is one thing that everyone needs to succeed ‚ luck. Without good luck, all bets are off. The American industrialist, J. Paul Getty, once said that the secret to success was: “You wake up early, you work hard, and you find oil.”” Tomorrow you could get up in the morning, and find gold in your back yard, and the rest will be history. Of course, the more you dig, the more you have a chance to find the glory at the end of the rainbow. But one thing is for sure, if you dig for oil in the Karoo you are not going to find it,‚ concluded Apteker.
