Anyone and everyone can be a candidate for rehab. When you have endless connections, money, fame and opportunities, it can be more tempting to get into a dangerous and addictive lifestyle. Whether it’s alcohol and drugs, food restriction addiction or another life-threatening habit, celebrities also have the means to afford the “best” rehab clinics. Plus, it looks much more glamorous than going to jail or community services.

The good news is that there are quality and affordable drug rehabilitation options for everyone. Follow in the (positive) steps of these celebrities who recognized when they were ready to get outside help. Nobody can help an addict who’s not ready, but a little evidence that A-listers are people, too, can be motivation.

1. Ke$ha

This pop star went into rehab for an eating disorder, which she only went public about after taking that first step. The demands on any person to look a certain way can be devastating, and for celebrities it can be even more extreme. When she debuted her new, healthier self at an awards show, the support for the singer poured in from around the interwebs.

2. Lindsay Lohan

She’s been in rehab more times than she’s had hit movies, but that’s actually pretty common. There’s no “cure” to an addiction and it’s common to slip back into old habits. Instead, dealing with addiction is more like dealing with a chronic disease. There will be good days, bad days, and what’s crucial is to keep moving forward. Rarely does a single stay in rehab stick for life.

3. Charlie Sheen

The poster boy for drug and alcohol addiction, Sheen is an extreme celebrity example. While every type of addiction is dangerous, involving chemicals can make it even tougher to get healthy. There are some instances where “chronic rehab” becomes a cycle and perhaps the only thing keeping severe addicts relatively safe.

4. Selena Gomez

What you go into rehab for is nobody’s business, and Gomez’s reps have strongly denied that her two-week stint had anything to do with drugs or alcohol. However, they also kept mum on what the real reasons were. There have been rumors spreading that she was partying hard, but given the confidentiality surrounding such clinics, fans may never know.

5. Demo Lovato

Eating disorders, drug and alcohol abuse, depression and cutting were all reasons for Lovato checking in to rehab. Now that she’s in recovery, she’s become exceptionally vocal about the importance of self-care.

Divorce is tough. You won’t find anyone who says it’s easy, unless it’s someone who’s trying to sell you a service!

The truth is, even a smooth divorce is emotionally trying. A divorce that escalates into a messy fight, on the other hand, is even more challenging to survive emotionally and financially.

You tried and you succeeded! Your online business is booming and there’s no sign of a potential decline in the future: all you see ahead are profits and gains.

Now that your online business is a going concern and you’ve worked your fingers to the bone, it’s time to celebrate. The thing is, you’ve been working so hard for so long that maybe you’ve forgotten how to have a good time.

Not to worry: there are five ways to celebrate your successful online business and everyone will see you’ve made it to the top!

1. Sleep in

I know this sounds silly, but just think about it. For months, you’ve leaped up at the crack of dawn and gotten straight to work. Some days, you’ve worked all day long pursuing the dream.

You’ve missed meals, canceled dates with friends, and you’ve skimped on much-needed rest. Since your online business is now a success, go ahead and sleep in: get some rest and rejuvenate. Who knows what might be ahead?

2. Read a book

You’ve denied yourself the basic pleasures of life to build that company into what you intended it to be, and that’s great. But now’s time to enjoy the simple things in life again, like reading an awesome book. Relax, have a cup of tea, and pick up that volume you’ve been curious about for months.

3. Go shopping

You’ve saved some money, you’ve worked hard, and you denied yourself a new wardrobe to get here. Now you can splurge a little and build the outer image to represent the triumph you’re feeling inside.

4. Travel

Now’s the time to get away. You’ve spend thousands of hours poring over business documents and talking to people in a desperate struggling to build a fail-proof online company.

What you need is a vacation. Pack your things, alert your family and friends, and just get out of town for a while. This is just what you need to show appreciation to yourself!

5. Throw a party

To truly celebrate the success of your online business, why not have a party? You’ve missed so much time with your family and friends, so now it’s time to recognize their importance by having a good time with them.

Many of these people have stood by you during your toughest hours of building for the future. Show them your appreciation and have some fun! Maybe you could even learn to make your own whiskey to showcase at the party!

Now that the business is successful, enjoy your life a little. There’s a delicate balance between work and play. You’ve done the work, now playtime is here! Congratulations on a job well done!

Although web security has made significant advances in recent years, entrepreneurs face ever-present threats from the simultaneous evolution of hackers and robots, as well as risks from the marketing of security products that are not truly secure.

Website security considerations

Great security starts with a solid website. WordPress is an excellent content management system with a large support community that can help in the event of any problems. The advantage of WordPress is certainly the amount of users eager to help one other, as well as vendors who make plugins and security services in the form of consulting.

When using WordPress or any type of content management system or cloud-based software, it’s important to consistently update the plugins and overall software versions. Doing so can seem tedious, but it’s better than the much more tedious task of reinstalling your entire website and data after a catastrophic breach in security!

Another excellent service you should use is a secure cloud-based password management service like LastPass. Passwords are stored remotely, and encrypted on their path to and from your websites.

Storing them in your web browser or anywhere on your computer is highly risky, and could be the most penetrable of security loopholes.

Secure your hosting

Beyond the website infrastructure and software, it’s important to have secure hosting from a reliable and proven web hosting service. If possible, you’ll want to allocate money in your budget for a dedicated server, which will greatly improve your security as well as your reliability for the consumer as far as outages and delays.

A shared server arrangement is one where several websites (sometimes as many as 300) share one server, and that means if one website has a security hole that admits a server-crippling virus or other type of attack, then every website and business on that server will be affected.

Another concern about less secure, shared web hosting is speed. Page speed is now an integral consideration of the Google indexing algorithm, which means if your site is slow, it will hurt your ranking on Google, which most of your potential customers will use to search for your product or service.

A shared web server can slow to a grinding halt during periods of high traffic, and those periods are unpredictable, since you don’t know when to expect traffic to other people’s businesses.

A smarter approach, therefore, in terms of both secure hosting and reliable, fast hosting, is to take the extra step of hosting your website and business on a secure dedicated server.
