It used to be that the only way websites were accessed, was from a desktop computer. Then, everything started shifting towards laptops because they were portable. Now, just about everyone has a mobile phone with web surfing capabilities. So, has your website been able to keep up? If not, here are some reasons why it is important to implement responsive website design.
Have you ever accessed a website via your smartphone and had to learn acrobatics just to see the page? Maybe you turned it sideways to see the text in one screen or kept resizing with your fingers to see all the details. You might even have had to scroll continuously from left to right just or read one sentence. It’s frustrating for sure.
What responsive design does is code each webpage so that it automatically adjusts to the screen size of the medium you are using to view it. Whether a tablet, large smartphone, small smartphone, laptop or a stationary desktop computer, each person will see the page in an optimized fashion for their device. Sounds great, doesn't it. So, why isn’t everyone using it right now?
Updating your website with responsive design tools right now will have several positive effects.
Is your website still best used for larger computers? It may be time to make the move to responsive design.

When you’re an entrepreneur, you’re defined by your passion for your work. You have to be in order to maintain the drive needed to chase after your goals. However, this is also why work/life balance can be so difficult when you own your own business. Entrepreneurs are notorious for taking work home with them, and this puts them at risk of burnout.
