By talking to people, reading books and following entrepreneurship classes, I have learned to focus on the things that truly matter and to stay on track while exploring my idea. One thing I observed during this process is that from a high-level perspective you can basically classify most businesses down into two categories: they are either pain-oriented or vision-oriented.

In fact, the more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that not only job candidates should care about their online presence, but every self-aware person using the internet really should. After all, it has never been easier to do so.
