Sell On Amazon - Sell Used Books Working From Home: What You Need To Get Started Out

Getting started selling in the Amazon Marketplace is easy. You probably already have most of these items on hand already. If money is tight, buy small quantities to get started (envelopes, tape, bubble wrap for shipping) to help economize during your start-up phase. Later on you can buy in bulk and save money. You will need:

A computer with Internet access - If you're reading this you likely already have your own computer. You'll need it every day for researching book prices, list books for sale, and check for email notifications.

Shipping envelopes - Large brown manila envelopes sized 9" x 12" and 10" x 13" work really well to ship most books.

Bubble wrap - Protects the books from damage in mail. You can buy a small roll of clear bubble wrap these days at many discount stores for about $5 to get started. This will save you money vs. buying bubble wrap envelopes and help you ship items that you might wind up selling on eBay or on other online sellers websites.

USPS Confirmation Delivery slips - These are available free from your local Post Office. They are the green and white slips that have a peel-and-stick adhesive at one end. Ask for a stack of 50-100 to get started.

Black ink pens - Have plenty on hand for addressing packages, Delivery Confirmation slips, shipping labels and making notes for yourself.

Pencils with erasers - Many libraries and some thrift shops will go through the process of marking the inside front cover with a price in pencil before their sale gets started. This price is usually $1, $2, $3 - and you'll need to erase this evidence that you got a terrific steal on this book when you're selling it for 10 times what you paid for it!

Scissors - For trimming up mis-taped parcels and cutting down cardboard packing protectors for supporting thin booklets or paperbacks. Also, you'll need these to cut up the bubblewrap you will use to protect books during shipment.

File folders - Use up some old manila file folders you were going to get rid of anyway if you don't want to buy new ones, which cost about $5 for a small package. Trim these into two pieces, one to protect front of book and one to protect back cover of book, once you slide the book into the shipping envelope to provide extra protection to your parcel.

Clear heavy-duty shipping tape & tape gun - You'll need the tape gun and 2-3 rolls of clear tape to get started. You can buy the smaller plastic tape dispensers for about $3 each if you're short on cash.

Cleaning supplies- You probably already have these in your kitchen: paper towels, small clean brush, warm water. Don't use cleaning sprays to remove stains from books or the dust covers. Most times you can put a small amount of warm water on a paper towel, swipe it across the glossy dust covers, and restore a clean shine to the book dust cover.

Bookshelves - Needless to say, this business inventory tends to take up lots of room, so set aside a spare bedroom or a cool, dry place in your home that has low humidity, away from windows that sweat to prevent damage to the paper in the books, and invest in or build some shelving to hold your books.

Work Table - Yes, you can use your dining room table, but having a designated work table like a long folding table that can be stowed away in a utility closet is a nice way to get an assembly line going for (a) listing books and (2) packing books for shipment.

Mobile Smartphone - OK, I'll admit that this is optional. Most cellphone smartphones will take a big chunk out of your monthly budget. But when you use the phone's internet web browser while out shopping to pull up competing prices, you'll know for certain if you've found a winner or not within seconds, so there's no second guessing.

Account Set-Up - You will need a business checking account to have payments direct deposited into from your book sales. Ask at your bank for a free debit card to go with account, and you won't need to write many checks out of this account. You can use the debit card to make the purchases you'll need to start and operate your bookselling business. Other business needs are:

You will need a credit card - You will need one for Amazon to confirm your sellers account the day you get started (it doesn't get charged again after that).

You will need a phone number - Home number or cell phone number that Amazon will use to send you a confirmation call or text message to confirm your identity when setting up account (this phone number doesn't get published on your online storefront unless you want to put it there - and I'd recommend against that. Your customers need to contact you via email anyway).

You will need a valid email address - This is where you'll send messages and receive book sale notifications and to check email notices regarding returns. I'd recommend getting a new Gmail account, and keep your business and your private email accounts separate.

Check with your city zoning department - While it boggles my mind that some cities restrict home businesses, it happens. You may need a business license in your town. You won't have customers or supplier sales reps coming to your home, and unless you're having UPS pick up large quantities of your books to ship to the nearest 'Fulfilled By Amazon' (FBA) distribution center, your neighbors probably will never notice you even run a home based business unless you tell them.

Now that you know the essential items you'll need to get started selling used books on Amazon, it's time to get busy sourcing books to sell online. It's easy to make money when you stock up on the right kinds of books. Take your time, negotiate for the best prices, and limit your purchases to good condition books. Your home based book store will take time to get up and running, but having the right tools handy starting out will help you get more done in less time as you learn how to sell in the Amazon Marketplace!

10 Businesses You Can Start For Under $1,000

If you've ever considered starting a home business, and felt that you didn't have the money, you're not alone. The average person's belief is that you need a lot of money to start a business. Sadly that's not true. Anyone can start a business and start-up money should be the least of anyone's worries.

On average, people can expect to have two and three careers during their work life. People who have been part of the traditional nine-to-five work force and are on the verge of retiring from that life are thinking of what to do next. They still feel that they got in them to work, so why not work for themselves?

Starting a home based business is within the reach of anyone who wants to take some risk and work hard. And like I said money is the least bit you'll need.

I wanted to share with you 10 business ideas that anyone can start today, and for good measure if you feel that money is holding you back, how about starting any one of these ten businesses for under $1,000? Yes, it's totally possible.

1. Commercial Cleaning Service

One of the best benefits of starting a cleaning business is that you can work during hours when no one else does - after office hours. Focusing on retail business that need cleaning is a good start. Pharmacies, doctors offices, print shops and retail stores are some of the business establishments always in need of cleaning.

Restaurants are also a great options, because they need daily cleaning to keep the restaurant clean. Usually after the restaurant closes or early in the morning are typical times for cleaning.

When I started my cleaning business, my first two clients were local Rexall Pharmacies. Inside the pharmacies there were doctors offices, x-ray offices and even an orthopedic clinic. This gave the owner, whom I got the contract through even more incentive and need for daily cleaning to be done.

2. Home Cleaning Business

Perhaps you would be more interested in house cleaning. Many times with cleaning services you don't have to spend lots of money on advertising or marketing because your customers will come by word of mouth. You start with one home, and soon enough you'll be getting referrals.

People are busy with careers, kids, education and family life to clean. This is where you can come in and offer to clean their homes.

Look around your home carefully and I'm certain you'll discover products that you could sell on eBay. Just as the saying goes; "You trash is someone's gold". Selling your old unwanted items will also give you the opportunity to get rid of the clutter in your home.

Figure out your asking price and decide whether to auction it or put it in your eBay store. Then decide if you want a minimum bid and how long you want the auction to last.

If you purchase from eBay regularly, I'm certain that you already have a PayPal account to use for transactions, and that you're fairly in tune on home buying an selling works.

5. Blogging / Editorial Services

Indexing - There are indexing courses available and you can get indexing software.

Opening up a flea market booth is rewarding in many ways. You'll be selling a product in a retail setting without the cost of a high-end retail store.

For example, if you're a good baker, selling your baked goods through a flea market booth is a great way to make extra bucks.

Start Up Cost: $700

What You'll Need: Booth rental at flea market (avg $500/month)

7. Personal Trainer

If you're passionate about keeping fit and nutrition, you may want to start your own private personal training. Create a website, put some pictures up and show them where they could possibly get trained (your gym/workout area at home).

Advertise your services at bulletin boards in malls, grocery stores and anywhere else that people go. Another good advertising avenue is Craigslist and Kijiji free local classified ads.

9. Landscaping Services

I know a personal friend who started his landscaping business with his father's lawnmower and rake. In five short years, his business is doing well over $500,000 in sales per year.

His business mostly grew through word of mouth, but he had a solid website and distributed flyers in local neighborhoods on weekly basis.

Start Up Cost: $800

10. Window Cleaning Service

Starting a window cleaning business is probably the easiest business to start out of all the above options. You don't need a lot of capital, and you can essentially do it on your own time.

If you live in anywhere in Canada, window cleaning essentially becomes a seasonal business, at least for 8 months only. The other four months it's too cold to clean windows and the water freezes below zero.

Start Up Cost: $100

What You'll Need: Squeegee, Bucket and business cards

Legitimate Work From Home Jobs

Legitimate work from home jobs seem to be very difficult to find. Many times these online jobs are not get-rich-quick companies. Positive things to look for are whether or not the online company stands behind its opportunities and does it offer plenty of online training in order to succeed.

One thing I find important in finding these jobs is online data entry work that doesn't include having to speak with clients. I look for an online company that simply includes a need for a computer, keyboard, mouse and an internet connection. If a person has ambition, can follow directions and doesn't quit, I believe that actual online data entry work should be within reach.

These online jobs include:

Traditional Data-Entry Jobs
Word Processing
Data Research
And many more data entry opportunities

These jobs should offer to its team members a guarantee for its program and offer complete support through the process.

Things to check for are:

· Does the company offer plenty of online training? In order to succeed we need adequate training to perform our jobs to the best of our ability.

· Is there an email address available for any questions we may have while going through the online jobs training information? Chances are we may have questions that need answers before moving further along through our online training program.

· Does the company offer a money back guarantee if we are not satisfied? It is good to look for a 30 to 60 day money back guarantee if we are not satisfied.

· Is the opportunity presented as a get-rich-quick company? If so, this may not be one of the legitimate work from home jobs.

Many of us are tired of long commutes to work. The price of gas to fill up our cars, as well as, wear and tear on our vehicles takes away from the income we are bringing home from our jobs.

The search to find actual work from home jobs can be long and exhausting. Things that make the search worthwhile for many of us is the thought of being able to perform our data entry jobs in the comfort of our own home. Other reasons include: not having to report to a boss, not having to spend extra money on nice work clothes and working hours that are best for our busy lives. Many of these jobs offer flexible work hours to work around appointments we may have, caring for children among other important day-to-day tasks.

Freedom From 9-5 - Living A Lifestyle Of My Dreams

Your day is moving quickly, as you struggle to get your kids off to school and yourself off to work, you are feeling hurried, there is just not enough hours in your day to get everything done. Freedom from the 9-5, and living a lifestyle of your dreams, full of adventure that was your dream. It hits you like a ton of bricks, "how did I get here?" This is not the lifestyle you had thought and dreamed about. You say to yourself, "My dream lifestyle has family time, fun time, travel time, how did I end up here?' You feel discouraged and a little angry your dreams of travel and adventure are fading each day, into a distant memory. Does this sound familiar? Freedom from the 9-5 and living a dream life is easy once your shown how.

Living a lifestyle of your dreams starts with knowing what your dream lifestyle looks like. What would a typical day be like for you? Take the time to truly think and explore what your dream life would include. What would it look like a week from now, a month from now, 1 year and 5 years from now. Most people give little to no thought about their life and what type of life they would like to have. Giving no thought to the lifestyle you want is like getting in the car and driving, not knowing where you want to go. Most people give more thought to planning their child's birthday party or a dinner party than they do their life. The first thing I had to do when I started my online business was to determine what I really wanted and what was the price I was willing to pay in order to get it. I encourage you to give some real thought to where you want to go. You need to know what your dream lifestyle is. Does your dream lifestyle include travel, a new home, your own home based business, time freedom, better health, better family relationships or contributions to charity? Imagine your dream lifestyle.

After spending years in the health care industry I knew I was not living my dream lifestyle. My dream life included time freedom where I could spend more time with my family, have time to travel, and included adventures. I felt my dreams where slipping away like distant memories. I decided I was going to seize the day, I grabbed my courage, took a leap of faith and turned in my resignation. I traded my old life for a brand new one. I have never looked back, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have been able to spend time with my family, determine my own schedule (which includes time for taking care of my health), and have time for traveling.

Give some thought to determine what your dream lifestyle looks like. To live your dream lifestyle and to create freedom in your life, it comes down to knowing what you really want, before anything else. Then grab your courage and go for it. You won't have any regrets.

Earn Money Online for Free

Many webmasters have created websites with hopes of attaining wealth. Typically the most prominent solution proposed is that they should start a blog. A blog is certainly a tried and proven method, but it is time intensive, and success is relatively difficult to accomplish. Even once the author begins to make money from the blog, they must constantly write new articles to keep the blog current. If you do not frequently post then the blog can become outdated rather quickly. Blogging is a difficult method to make money, and you really have to like writing. There are many ways to make money online, but the easiest method has to be with passive income.

Passive Strategies

Over time a blog can be considered passive income. Relevant articles written a long time prior will still make money through affiliates and advertising revenue. But for truly passive income you will want to be able to create a turn key website. Write the articles once and be done with it. How is it done? The website needs to rank number 1 on Google. The first page is OK, but for the best results the number 1 spot is required. Actually getting a new website into the top 10 is fairly difficult unless you target keywords with the skill of a, expert. The remedy then, is to to do just that. You can see examples of this all over the web, but specifically where the AdSense keyword payout is high. "ASE study guides" and "2 year degrees are both suitable examples to use. Freeasestudyguides ranks first for "ASE study guides". The website is simple, trouble-free, and best of all entirely passive. The website generates money in a few ways:

Google AdSense: for this specific key term the average payout is around 11 dollars per click, and will typically earn around 1700 a month for the number one website. The website owner employs Amazon's affliate program, and sells relevant reference books to site viewers. It is highly likely that the viewers will click and purchase the books, as they found the website by typing in "ASE study guides" The Amazon affiliate system offers various commissions depending on completed sales. The rates start at 4% and go up from there.

The website in the example features twenty pages, and I would speculate the author is achieving 1,500 to 4,000 a month, without even batting an eye! The website is an example of a well designed system that exists for one reason, give the visitor what they want, and give them plenty of chances to head over to advertisements that generate money.

How to Duplicate the Success

To achieve similar results you will need to find a niche, or highly dedicated keyword that will make money. Begin by brainstorming ideas for websites. If you are drawing a blank on finding a niche, then write down a few things that frighten, encourage, motivate you, or even something that you want to learn. Then take those ideas and run them through a free tool to determine if there is a spot to enter the niche, and how much you can expect to earn. Study the site in the example provided to duplicate their process, or see here for more ways to earn extra money from home.

Fast Income Pro - What Does It Take?

With today's weak economy many people are just overwhelmed by the opportunities that guarantee that they will make them into a fast income pro. You have probably come across a few of these opportunities yourself today. A key question that you need to ask yourself is, whether it is a legitimate, ethical, and real opportunity for making money or is it just filled with false promises, being made by somebody trying to take you to the cleaners. Before you sign up for any program, you need to do some serious research and find out some serious facts about it. Here are some questions that you might want to consider asking yourself when deciding to sign-up for any fast income program.

Who is the creator of the program? Do they have a good reputation? What type of guarantees do they offer? Do they offer a free or low-cost trial program? Do they have references that you can contact? Do they have any proven results that they can share with you? These are all good quality questions that you need to look at when thinking of signing up for any business opportunity, be it online or offline.

Here some other items to consider, will they give you all the tools that you need for succeeding in your business. Will they help generate customer terrific for you? Will they give you good quality training and support? Can you speak to them directly over the phone to get your questions answered?

Many business opportunities today will easily attract you to the hyped promises of being able to make a lot of money in no time. Be cautious of these claims and promises. Be very careful to check all the terms and conditions indicated on any sign-up forms. Make sure that you clearly understand the total cost of the program. Also, look and see if you can cancel your subscription at any time, without a penalty. Also, find out what their refund policy is.

When doing your research, if you find that the opportunity presented to you has a lot disparities, it should make you realize that this fast income pro opportunity is not a legitimate business opportunity at all. However, you can find other programs that are legitimate, ethical, honest, and very real. Don't jump at the first opportunity presented to you. There will be many to choose from, choose the one that is right for you. Take your time, you will know when the right opportunity is available. Good luck in your pursuit of finding the right opportunity for you.

Why You Should Never Never Give Up

The start-up stages of any new business are often the most difficult period. I want to tell you how close I came to giving up when I started out and why you should never give up.

You see I had been working very hard over the first few months, day in and day out till late at night building my home based business.   Like you, I knew that it was going to be hard work but I didn't mind this. In fact I really enjoy working for myself, as I am sure you do too. But I can tell you in those early days, it felt like I was suffering from information overload. There just seemed to be so much to learn and so many new systems to put into place.

A little voice began to ask is this worth it? All those hours of effort for little reward at first? Then a moment of madness came over me - you know those times when you think of doing something really crazy just for a split second... like thinking maybe I should call it a day and go and find a J.O.B.

Then at that moment my phone rang and thankfully brought me back to my senses. It was my mentor calling to find out how I was doing and offering some support.  Spooky huh! Yeah I thought so. Saved from myself and my moment of madness.

So I began to wonder what I was doing that made me feel that way and this is what I realised.

Be Selective - Use Your Time Wisely

What I found was, in the early days there is just so much information to take on board and learn. There are countless training videos and invites to so many webinars.  I spent so much time watching that  I didn't have time to put into action all the great stuff I was learning.  So I decided that for every video I watch, I have to spend the same amount of time putting it into action.  You have be choosy about how you spend your time - you are the only one in your business trying to do all the tasks therefore don't spend time doing tasks that won't help you achieve your goals. Don't watch every video and webinar - be selective and use your time wisely.

Leverage Your Time - Outsource

Another time killer for me was trying to implement the learning.  I'm a bit of a perfectionist and ended up spending so much time trying to master the tasks. What should have taken five minutes was often turning into an afternoon of unproductive time.  Work out the tasks that you can learn to do easily - know your skills. Use these and outsource everything else - that could be the best investment that you can make. If something doesn't work then don't spend hours trying to find out why - get some help.  You could spends hours surfing the web for a solution or you could connect with other like-minded individuals who truly understand what you are going through and will help you leverage your time.

Set Daily Goals - Make Them Time Focused

 Set yourself daily time limited goals. Break tasks down into smaller ones which you know you can achieve in the time set. Work to a focused time limit. This will help you to keep to deadlines and know what tasks you are avoiding or spending too much time doing.  Use your time wisely and work out the most productive way that you can use that time to achieve a set task.

Don't Ever Lose Sight Of Your Dreams - Remind Yourself Of Them Everyday

 Keep reminding yourself of your reasons for starting your business. Look at your vision board daily and why you are doing this. This will quickly get your brain focused, keeping it clear to put your goals into action and you will never want to give up on your dreams. Keep remembering your reasons why.

Many ventures fail not because they were not great ideas or didn't have the potential to succeed but because people gave up on their dreams. They let that voice that sits on their shoulder get louder and louder - you know the one with all the negative thoughts?  Well you have to learn to quieten that voice till it shuts up. When it shuts up you know that you will succeed. Here's to your success - remember to never never give up.

There are many people who are being brave and setting up a business from home, crafty businesses making things, catering businesses from home and internet based companies. All of these people are now facing trouble in terms of space and time. Business who are based at home will need a bit of space and certainly require time which can be difficult if there are family and children to take care of. However, many people see the benefits of flexibility and being able to work as and when the business requires although this can leave people feeling very stretched.

Here are some tips for small businesses run from home to help alleviate some of the stresses and pressure.

Tip one: Create the space. This will be difficult in a kitchen based company but otherwise you must find the space for your equipment and storage for any files, receipts and general business requirement. A computer is usually part of a home run business and you can store most things on-line or in a back up storage memory unit. Even a kitchen or work shop based firm will need some records of their business and so most will use computers to store this information. It is not just simply finding space for you equipment though, at home it means reducing your personal items, clearing out old wardrobes and cupboards and maximizing space. Good storage in your home is a good place to start or even hiring a storage unit. Try getting rid of anything you do not need or use, car boot sales, charity and storage should take care of the space issue leaving your home feeling uncluttered and functional.

Tip two: Time. If only there were more hours in the day! There will be times when deadlines approach and if you are not completely on top of your game you may fail to complete your work or upset your home and family. Either way getting the balance of this right is essential. Your family will always come first but so does paying the bills. You must look at time the same way you balance the books with money. Add up how many spare business hours you can actually give to your business then if your work hours are increasing you must look at roping in family or professional help with things like food shopping or school runs but do not lose sight of your family. Have a limit in terms of hours in which you want to spend in quality time with your family and do not intrude on this time. Find alternatives like even hiring a temporary person to help you as and when you need support with your business. This can mean expanding your business and having a good quality family time is still possible.

It may seem like taking the time to have a clear out and organise your time better is too much work but once it is done it will make your day-to-day running of a home business much easier for everyone involved. A home business is not just a business or a home it must have space and time for both.

Invention is the key to success

The new inventions or the changes that are inculcated in the normal procedure is always welcomed with the open arms. These changes are taken as the changes for the betterment. It is not necessary that all the changes prove to be the best or very successful, but some of them do so which makes a lot of difference and also opens the gate for other inventions also. It is correctly said, "Inventions are the key to success". This line is very well learned by the packaging people and so they allow all the inventions to be experimented and if proved to be helpful then that is then sent into the market. It is because of this attitude, the packaging field has become so developed and so much useful that people are now getting addicted to it, and now it has became the vein in the body of the market.

One of such invention was the development of the stand up pouches. This proved to be very helpful and got many appreciating hands in its support. The stand up pouches matched all the necessary requirement of the people and most importantly it matched the requirement of the small area in the kitchen. In laymen language, such pouches remain stand but gave you comfort. The sell of the stand up pouches touched the sky and almost everywhere there was nothing but these pouches standing tall and rising high.

Then introduced a new invention or a change, making the paper stand up pouches which had all the qualities of the previous stand up pouches but this time it also matched the requirement of the environmental safety. This was evenly appreciated and then brought into use. The paper that was used in its production was processed and was very strong enough to carry out thousands grams of weight inside it.

The paper stand up pouches gathered lots of popularity and as usually was seen everywhere in the market. Then introduced a new invention or a change which brought a new face in the packaging world. The change was very minute but that brought a huge shopping satisfaction in the consumers mind. The paper stand up pouches with a window was developed, through which the quality, color, size, and texture of the item packed could be seen and judged. This brought a great relief to the consumers and the sell touched the cloud. Every company then started using such bags in order to give consumer a satisfaction which they opt for.

Transformation And Simplicity - Two Vital Elements Which Will Get Your Small Business Ahead

Just about every private business owner is probably starting to be bewildered and bogged down with the degree of rivalry that prevails at present. Money is getting to be such a challenge, so you are possibly coming across some difficulty bringing in the finances you require to expand or even just sustain your small business. You encounter the strain of having to reel in new prospects and customers and a formidable impulse gets in the bloodstream of both your small business and your private life.

One thing that has contributed much to this could be the deluge of online information and facts that chases you and results in that impression that you're always passing up on something. There's new information that is released on the web on a day-to-day basis and this causes you to feel you've gotten left out by those who had ventured the path in advance. Therefore you have that impression that you have to accept new information you run into just to stand above the others. But deep inside, the worry of skepticism takes over and you suspect if you actually have what it requires to keep afloat.

That being said however, it appears that people these days are no longer compelled to acquire special information you believe you may be supplying. Info is virtually all around you at no cost. In truth, there's way too much information that people are beginning to feel that it's getting them nowhere. So they may be actually looking for something more - TRANSFORMATION.

In the middle of this information deluge, people these days are literally hunting for a magic formula to transform their business enterprise. What they desire is often a trusted authority within a specific sector to simplify problems and provide them with the preferred effects. And they are willing to pay a good price to do this.

Let us have a look at a few scenarios that can express this sort of transformation.

Whenever people opt to enroll in a healthy eating plan or weight reducing program, they are not excited about the fact that they will be seated with a group and listening to discussions regarding eating habits and other essential information regarding weight loss. They just want results and that's to shed weight. They're looking for a transformation in their body and when they could obtain that devoid of all the hassle of information, they'll pay for that answer. So you can see here that it's not the material they're after - it is the transformation.

One other good illustration could be those individuals who hire a business guru with regard to their small enterprise. They're not getting excited about spending hours on consultation services and conferences or examining case studies or testimonials really. What they need is for their present dilemma to vanish, for income to reach a high point, or perhaps the competitors to cease being a menace to their survival. Theya re seeking to improve their business with the most effective means possible.

Why Would You Want To Use Self Storage?

Storage as a concept is not a new idea. People who have special treasures and trinkets have been looking for ways to keep them safe from the earliest days of mankind and other have been looking for ways to take what they want from people who cannot protect and defend what they have. It may sound like a primitive instinct to protect and keep safe our things, after all it is just stuff but then having certain things buys you status in your community so it has become a natural thing to want what others have.

Storage becomes a part of this equation when you have not got the space to storage your precious objects and items. In modern times, simply throwing away things has become unpopular, holding onto things till they age and become valuable is more sensible with certain items, sentiment can also be a reason to hold onto something and family heirlooms can also be items you want to keep but do not necessarily have the room for. There are many TV shows that deal with antiques, hoarders and storage and they are popular because people want to know what others have and what they are worth. Value can sometime be a relative thing and so can space, sometime storage space itself is of value.

People who need storage do not always need it for personal items, there are people who need professional items stored and in the days of phising, hacking and identity theft it is unthinkable for a company to dispose of sensitive information without following guidelines. But what about the paper you need to keep, signed documents that may not have been scanned onto computer. These would need to be stored until this is possible.

Another category of person who might look into self storage is people who just have too much stuff for the size of their home, a family who want to convert a loft for a bedroom would find they have nowhere to store their winter/summer clothes, seasonal items such as sledges or Christmas decorations, skiing/gym/sports equipment or even furniture. Sometimes people do not use items throughout the year and storing bulky items for a whole year you only use for a month out of the year can be frustrating, especially with thing that have cost a great deal of money.

Self storage offers both professional and personal means of protecting thing which are valuable and would not want to be lost, that could cause harm to someone in the wrong hands or would simply be valuable. Self storage units can give a peace of mind to owners that these items are secured, protected and safe.

Business Opportunity - How 4 Simple Words and Laughter Can Give You Success and Long Life

The power of laughter is strong medicine. It is even one of the secrets to a longer life. Only God and man have this unique ability! The power to laugh at circumstances and having a sense of humor also shows intelligence.

Knowing this secret of laughter, you can use it to your advantage to reach your goals and dreams. It will be like a powerful weapon to you on a gloomy day. It will help you keep the right frame of mind about yourself and things around you.

Even learning to laugh at ourselves once in a while is wise. After all, we are only human. When we become too serious we become comical and others wind up laughing at us. Plus, whatever happens today will seem like nothing tomorrow, so why not learn to laugh at the petty things of today? You probably will look back and laugh at it all years from now anyway.

Always stay cool, calm and collected about everything just like an ultra successful businessman who has achieved greatness and wealth. Become someone who never takes anything too seriously and always keeps his posture.

So how do you remember to keep this unique frame of mind when unexpected circumstances or trouble suddenly appears? Just say to yourself these four magic words, THIS TOO SHALL PASS.

Remember, to keep a positive mindset of someone to be admired means keeping the right frame of mind. This too shall pass are powerful words passed down from wise ones of our past. They thought up this powerful mindset to help themselves cope with everyday situations.

Life is way too short to let things get you down. These four words help keep everything in proper perspective. A hundred years from now today's problems and heartaches won't matter anyhow.

If you are heavy with grief, got the big head from success, or are strangled in poverty, even burdened with riches, you can use these four words to remind yourself then as well that all this too shall pass.

Enhance each day with laughter and each night with singing. Laughter puts all things in the right perspective. Learn to laugh at past failures and they will vanish and your dreams will reappear. Even laugh at your successes and they too will be put in proper perspective.

You don't always have to be working to be happy but you can stay busy enough not to be sad. Today is all you really have. Today cannot be stashed away for later. These are things that must be enjoyed today while it is still called today.

With laughter everything is reduced to its proper size. Laughter can even chase away evil. Laughing at our failures and mistakes will make place for new dreams. Laughing at our successes will bring them back down to Earth.

Laughing at the good things in life will make them more plentiful. Make each day a success. Let your smiles be contagious to others. Wearing a frown will only mean losing sales. As an ancient Chinese proverb says, "A man without a smiling face must not open shop".

If you have to shed anything let it be tears of sweat, because those of sadness, remorse or frustration are of no value in the marketplace. A warm smile and kind words will lift up others and can help you build your business opportunity.

A wise man should never get so important, so wise or dignified that he cannot laugh at himself or look up to others. As long as you can keep yourself in proper perspective you will never be too big or too wise to learn good things through others.

As long as you can laugh you will never really be poor. The power of laughter is God's gift to man. Why waste it? Only with laughter and happiness can you truly have ultimate success. What good is money and success if you cannot handle owning it and take time to enjoy it?

Without laughter and happiness you might as well be beating the wind. Decide that you must have happiness. And that laughter will be the thing that serves it up. Just as good drink makes a good meal better, laughter will make you a true success and a real businessman.

Smith and Warren Badges are the finishing touch product in police supplies and equipment

When it comes to identification for the law enforcement community, an officers badge is the most widely accepted item form for proof of occupation. Many departments take extreme pride in the look, design and details in their badges. Several companies throughout the U.S. manufacture badges but none come close in quality to just 2 of the premier companies which include Smith & Warren based out of New York, and Blackington based out of Massachusetts. Both companies make the finest products in the marketplace and have been doing so for over many decades each. When we surveyed departments throughout the country, most had a tremendous amount of respect for each company but it seemed that many were happier with the delivery and pricing of Smith & Warren badges.

Smith & Warren is sold through authorized dealers and distributors of police supplies and equipment. They includes individual storefronts, catalog companies and internet companies. Many police supplies and equipment dealers are now offering the Visual Badge on their own websites which allows the end user, customer or department to allow them to see the badge customized before actually ordering. This has also drastically reduced mistakes that occur from putting together orders before the internet age. Some companies that have been offering great service and pricing on Smith and Warren badges include companies such as INTAPOL Industries based out of Jersey City, N.J. and Police Equipment Depot based out of Nashville, TN. They both have knowledgeable staff and are ready to answer any questions or offer advice to deliver what their customers are seeking out of their badge order.

It should also be noted that besides the stock program of designs and customizable designs, Smith and Warren badges offer completely custom design badges from scratch. This can include the metal badge itself OR can be a completely custom center seal. Prices vary for die charges which can range from $85 to over $300 depending on the level of detail. We have all heard the saying that "the uniform makes the man" but after seeing some of the quality produced from their factory that maybe that saying should be overhauled with a new saying "the badge makes the uniform". With offering of the finest finishes from Rhodium, Nickel, Gold, and even 24K electroplate finishes, Sil-Ray, Gol-Ray and 2-tones options, there isn't much you can't find this company won't do. Besides finish options, other choices include font size, color and style, center seal options, backing options with pin & safety, wallet backing, or even screw back for hats. The last most important thing to mention about Smith and Warren would be their extremely fast delivery which is normally within 3 to 4 weeks. Most companies take 6 to 8 weeks or longer but their factory has consistently delivered within the 3 to 4 week. See your local dealer of police supplies and equipment today to order.

Corporate identities are by no means a new idea when it comes to branding or positioning your company.

The issue of corporate identity is undoubtedly a critical issue in the brand building process; little wonder smart businesses work so hard to develop a winning corporate identity - yet overlooked by millions of business owners!

Who do people say you are?

Have you ever cared to ask yourself this question - Who do people say I am or We are? Have you cared either to ask your family, friends and customers this pertinent question?

In today's crowded business environment, people all over the world are bombarded with messages of commercials from almost all available media - TV, Radio, SMS, Billboard, Internet, et ceteral. You are almost confused and in most cases never really know where to turn when you need certain product or service. This is exactly how your target customer is affected. He/she is faced by a hundred of companies promising the same product feature or service game!

One of the smart strategies for your business is to position your product or service in such a way that your target audience will identify you in headlines in his/her mindshare; and pick you among a pack of cards!

Top brands don't have trade secrets - they have smart business ideas (or strategies) working for them!

If the money you invest in advertising doesn't justify your turnover, you may want to ask yourself this simple question i have been asking myself for over 4 years in business. Who Do People Say I am?

Come to think of it: When you hear Ruff n Tumble, what comes to your mind? Quaity clothing for your children. What about Facebook? A social media where you can share your thoughts to family and friends. Toyota means cost-efficient cars. LG to any customer means electronics. DSTV means satellite TV. The list seem endless! You think of these super brands in HEADLINES!

What do customers think about your business? Finding answers to this might just do the magic for you. That's why whenever i am consulted by clients to restructure their marketing and help them grow sales, i ensure i engage in a diagnostic approach - and not just a fire brigade approach of quickly suggesting promotional strategies.

In building a strong business, product or service brand, you must help your customers to think of you in HEADLINES.

When it comes to your nature of business - help customers to think of you first. This way you will grow your turnover faster than you may have ever imagined.

Tips on How You Can Help Your Clients to Think of You in Headlines.
1. Avoid engaging in a single business name in multiple business interest. If you are in the financials, don't do software development except you are floating a new company for this. Don't be financials and software at the same time. Some people even offer as many conflicting services as they can offer!

2. Do some secondary research - group, personal and focus interviews. Ask your customers - they are your closest audience. Ask them who they think you are. In most cases, you get honest replies from this group.

3. Repetition. Be consistent in your message. Hammer the point home and keep hammering that same point. This seems counter-intuitive to many creative people who think that they should always come up with a new theme. Wrong! Points sink in - finally - only through repetition.

See you at the top.

How To Tell If You Have A Bee Infestation

Bees can be very helpful and useful creatures, especially when it comes to pollinating plants. However, if the bee population on your property gets out of hand, it could result in painful bee stings, and you might find that you can't even spend time in your own yard or deck without running the risk of being attacked.

One of the most pesky and damaging types of bee is the carpenter bee, which actually burrows right into your wood in order to make its nest. Because the nests are often hidden where you can't see them, it can be difficult to spot and get rid of the carpenter bee. If you hear a strange buzzing or humming sound that seems to be coming from inside your wall but you can't visibly see any bees, then you probably have a whole carpenter bee colony right there in your wall! This can be very disconcerting and if left to thrive, the damage to your home will continue to get worse. If you suspect that you have a carpenter bee infestation in your home or in your railings on your deck, or anywhere else where there is wood, then it is best to have professionals come and take care of the problem. If you try to get rid of carpenter bee infestations on your own you will likely end up just feeling frustrated because they can be very difficult to get to. That is why hiring a Bee Removal Chula Vista company is likely your best bet to finally getting rid of those stubborn and pesky bees.

Storage Unit Auction Information and Popularity

There is a tremendous surge of popularity in the storage unit auctions information business today, especially because of the high ratings seen from the reality cable television shows that specialize in it. Shows such as Storage Wars spark the public interest in finding hidden treasures in unclaimed storage units at auctions around the country. Most people have at least some type of experience with second hand goods or items, and knowing the resale value at a thrift shop or among collectors.

The high rate of home foreclosures in the last several years has created an expansion in the storage unit management company industry because the things that people have collected through the years cannot fit into the smaller home or apartment they are now living in. They need a place to store it all, and storage units are the best option. However, if they end up becoming more financially stressed and cannot pay their storage unit monthly fees, then they can have their possessions that were in the unit auctioned off to the public to the highest bidder.

This may seem harsh or unnecessary, but the storage unit company is actually trying to reclaim lost rental fees due them in a legal method provided to them through the law. Otherwise that unit would be lost to them as an income producer every month because it was filled with non-paying renters belongings. This way, they can hopefully receive enough money with the auction to pay back rent, and also they can clear out the unit so that current renters can move in.

The storage unit management company is legally obligated to provide notice through the media using newspapers, magazines, or broadsheets so that the renter will know of the upcoming auction in advance. They have up to the time of the actual auction to get their account up to date or current, or the auction will proceed. Last minute cancellations happen all the time, so the potential bidder should call the rental company the day of the auction to check whether it will still be held.

Storage unit auctions information can sometimes be hard to find, but the diligent and resourceful bidder can find this information if he knows where to look. First of all, specify a certain area that you are willing to travel for an auction, and map out the surrounding zone. Driving many miles to a storage unit auction may not be a productive way to spend your time, especially if you are bringing a trailer or truck to haul away the contents of a storage unit if you are successful with your bidding.

Check the white pages of your local phone book to find the phone numbers of nearby storage unit rental companies. The yellow pages are also a great way to double check to see if you missed anything. Having a phone number is essential because of what was mentioned earlier about checking for last minute auction cancellations. Usually though, there are several units up for auction at the same time and the auction will still proceed even if one or two renters pay up. There will just be fewer storage units at the auction.

To be a successful storage unit auction bidder, a person needs to be able to size up quickly what the resale value of any goods inside the unit is. At an auction, the lock is cut off at the commencement time and the potential bidders are allowed to walk by to look into the unit so they can judge for themselves whether or not to bid on it. They are only allowed a minute or two to look in to size things up before the auction begins. So a person needs to be able to judge the resale value and how much they are willing to pay during the bidding process. It can be easy to get caught up in the bidding and win the unit, but only realize later that you paid way too much for it. The idea is to make a profit here, and many bidders are owners of a brick and mortar thrift store retail business or they intend to resell the items online. This can be very profitable for them, and they tend to have a very good idea on the resell value at their store.

The winning bidder must pay in cash at the end of the storage unit auctions and then they are usually given up to two days to clear out the unit. This is why some people will bring a truck or trailer with them and a pocketful of cash just in case. The storage unit auctions information is out there for those people who would like to give this a try, and it can be a very lucrative business also. Make sure to learn the industry first before throwing your hard earned money into the bidding process. There are some great storage unit auctions online courses and eBooks out there that are very helpful and can help to reduce losses. As with any business, you can either pay for your education up front, or in the end... Learning by trial and error is also effective, but a good course is advised so that you will know everything the other bidders know during the bidding process. This can even the playing field considerably and give you a great chance at success!

The Ways To Find Heating Hampton Services

When you are in need of Heating Hampton services to come to your home or get a new heater there are a lot of different ways to find them.

You can compare and decide which one will give you the best heater for your money in a fairly short amount of time as well. Here are a few ways to do some research and find a trustworthy company.

If you are in need of a tune-up or something is wrong with your existing heater you should find some help in numerous ways. You can first go online to see the different Heating Hampton services that are in your area. You can then call them to see how much their services will cost. They should have a general estimate to give you because if you need your heater fixed they probably won't know what is wrong immediately. They can then come to your home and find out how much the problem will cost you. Each company should be able to tell you what part is wrong and they should all be in agreeance. If they differ in their opinions you should ask them why they believe that is the part. You can then make your decision on which company you want to fix your heater.

If you're looking for a more efficient heater to place in your home you can go to the local Heating Hampton companies around your area to price some, or you can look online. If you know the square footage of your home you will be able to narrow the price down quite a bit. The existing model you have in your home may not be the right size in order to properly heat your home. You want a model that won't have to work too hard or too little to heat your entire house. You can then look at the different efficiency that the units have. There are now ratings required by heaters so you will know how much of your money spent on heating is actually spent on heating your home. The rating will affect the price of the unit, but it will also end up saving you with your utility bills. You shouldn't have to shop long to find the right heater for your home and your budget.

Me Time - The Importance Of Making Time For Yourself When You Work From Home

Being self employed can be marvellous in the autonomy, flexibility and creativity that it brings you. However, one of the downsides of running your own business is that the success or failure of the whole enterprise rests with you. That's a lot of responsibility to take on. It can be even harder to take some time off, knowing that you've got so much to do - not just paying work but all the other things that an entrepreneur has to think about: marketing, administration, book-keeping. But no one can keep working endlessly without a break - try it, and your health and mental wellbeing are going to suffer. So what can you do to help yourself?

Treat yourself like a loved one. Write a list of 10 nice things and give yourself permission to have at least one every day. I'm talking about tiny treats like a bar of chocolate, or a 10 minute sit down with a good cup of tea, or a new magazine, or a hot bath with a few candles round the sides, or buying a packet of seeds (what can I say, I'm a gardening geek - that constitutes a treat in my book!).

If you can, have a full day off from work once a week. By that, I mean you do nothing work related - not one thing, be that a phone call or a tweet or a single, solitary email. If you have a home office, shut, and preferably lock, the door and don't open it again until the next day.

If this is truly impossible right now, have at least an afternoon or a full evening off. Don't open your laptop. Read a book instead, or go for a walk, or watch a stupid film or jump on your long-suffering partner - do whatever you want. Relax!

Every so often (try and make it monthly at least), have a decent amount of time off. Go away for the weekend or if staying at home, don't do any work whatsoever.

I try and put a tiny bit of money away each week (and when I was really poor, it was truly tiny - maybe a few pounds). Let it mount up over time and then spend it on something frivolous that you really want. 15 a week over 3 months is nearly 200 - enough for a night away somewhere or a day of spa treatments or a really nice coat. You get the idea. Treat yourself and don't feel guilty. Then you can come back to your work with renewed energy and enthusiasm for making your business a success.

Making Money Online - Where Do You Start When You Don't Know How?

There is so much talk these days about how to make money online. There's plenty of information about setting up a website, promoting products, setting up an email list and so on and so forth.

But what should you make a website about? How DO you make money? And, most importantly, can you do it all for free?

Well let's take each question in turn.

What should you make your website about?

This is the most important question of all because what you make your website about and how much money you can make from it all depends on what it's about.

So how do you decide?

Before you consider anything else about your website, first decide what you would enjoy making it about. Just think about what you love to do (a hobby?) or a subject you're interested in. In has to be something that you're quite passionate about because your website is going to be based on it. So if you don't love what you do, you won't be good at it.

If you have a hobby that you really enjoy and can talk about for hours, then the decision is easy. Your hobby will be your website subject (niche).

If you don't have a hobby that you can talk about for hours, then think of a subject that interests you. You don't even have to know a lot about it because thanks to Google, you can find any information you need.

For example, you might enjoy researching and learning about World War II, or you might have an interest in classic cars, or have a child with an illness, or you're a parent of young children, or you love pets, or movies, or gardening, or photography, or reading or.....the list goes on.

Whatever it is you enjoy reading, watching, learning or doing, you can build an online business around it.

How do you make money?

That is the million dollar question that everyone wants to know. How to you turn any website into a profitable online business?

Well making money online is easy. The only question is how much? And that depends entirely on you and what your website is about, how much work you do on your website and how useful and informative your website is.

People come to the internet looking for information. If they find what they're looking for at your website, then they'll stay awhile. If not they'll click away to someone else's website.

When visitors stay on your website, there are several ways you can make money.

The quickest and easiest way to make money online is with Google AdSense. These are the small ads you see on millions of sites all over the internet. These ads are easy to use. You just set up a free AdSense account, choose how you want your ads to look and the size you need and then you just copy and paste the code provided into your web page and the ads will display automatically and will match the content of your web page.

These ads are known as Pay Per Click ads because every time someone clicks on one of your ads, you earn a small commission. It really is that easy.

Another way to earn money online is by selling other people's products for a commission. This is known as affiliate marketing.

The quickest way to get started with this is to go to an affiliate network such as ClickBank or Commission Junction and sign up for a free account. Then you can start browsing their huge list of products and advertizers and start displaying their ads on your site. Then is someone clicks through and makes a purchase, you earn an affiliate commission.

Online Jobs Working From Home: Tips for Balancing Life and Work for the Ambitious Blogger

So you thought online jobs working from home would be everything the hype advertises them to be. Well, a lot of people who work from home actually love their jobs. You can be the boss of your own life, but you'll need to fire yourself if you aren't actually having a life. The whole point of working at home on the internet after all was to have a better life and work balance. This can be achieved with certain practices in place.

Plan Your Social Life or You Won't Have One

If your social life is looking more like people are "liking" your latest post, you need to plan on getting out of the house more, or invite people over to your place. A lot of people meet friends at work or after work, so those who work on the Internet all day, need to find a nice balance. Call and connect with your off-line friends and schedule some quality time for coffee or dinner. There's nothing more satisfying than spending time with the people you care about after a successful day of working from home.

Take Scheduled Breaks

If you work on the computer all day, you'll need to take scheduled breaks to get your creative juices and blood flowing. Determine when you typically start to wan and take a 5 or 10 minute break to watch television, listen to music, or call a friend. I find that listening to music and cleaning up the house in 5 minute intervals is usually what works best for my breaks. Scheduling this time to do something else will actually help you stay more focused when you sit back at the computer.

Have a Family Meeting

Working from home can be difficult if you've got small children or a spoiled pet. There's really nothing you can do about the cat or dog other than petting them superfluously, but you can talk to your kids and spouse to let them know what you'll need to do a great job while you work from home.

Really small children won't understand that you need to work alone. Kids want to play, so it's important to work around that schedule or have your spouse take over when you're busy. Use your time wisely when you're working and indulge your family when it's family time.

Create Some Personal Space

Everyone needs their own space. Whether you're working in the garage or writing on the porch, you must create your own space that allows you to function without interruption. Even if the only area you get is a corner, mark that corner for your own usage. If you treat your space and your time with professionalism, your work will be more professional.

Quitting Time

You better know when it's quitting time, or you'll work yourself to death. You know its quitting time when you aren't going out anymore and you're eating dinners at your desk rather than with your family. I have a rule that I eat meals with my family away from the computer. If you want a balanced life, you need to create your own rules for what's important to you. You've got to know when to work your butt off and when to stop.

The whole point of working from home was to live the life you wanted but that included your family and fun, right? If you're not enjoying the work you do and the life you live, it might be time to think of a different career. Working online can be a wonderful opportunity for people to make a nice living, have flexibility for what they want in life, and even travel the world with their families. It can be a burden if not approached correctly, so consider this advice next time you're planning your work day.

Cheap Gets The Thrown

Plastic products are used widely in the entire world. None of the cities or country is left which are not affected by the harsh effects of this devil. However, as the people got to know about the effects of these material immediate steps were taken and so the things got simpler and somehow the cloud of the danger of global warming and pollution were controlled. But still the problem neither is nor solved completely. There are certain fields which are still using the plastic and its products on the major scale. But these are just unavoidable, as there is no other material which can be on the place of this devil. Research and various high cost projects are going on, just for the hope of getting another best and suitable option for the use.

The plastic bags are the most widely used product of the plastic. Actually, not just being light in weight easily accommodated and very flexible it is very cheap, and hence very popular among the general public. The plastic is actually a polymer based product. It is made up of various long chains of ethylene, an organic compound. It has very high molecular mass and hence very high. These long chains are actually bound with each other with a very strong bond, which is very difficult for breaking. This makes it non biodegradable. But the bonding is very flexible; this provides the plastic bags complete contraction and expansion properties. Because of this property, the plastic bags are used every where, as it can gain the shape and easily accommodate the daily routine item or other items. Along with that, due to the very high molecular mass and density, it burns with a sooty flame and thus, polluting the environment.

The same qualities of the plastic attract the packaging people also. The plastic packaging hence became the most widely practiced and method. The plastic is made easily by polymerization reaction that too in the bulk of thousand. Its prize is hence low and very much affordable. The packaging people need large quantity of the plastic, and hence they will catch it as it is very cheap and best of course. However, the wastage is also very high, which actually creates pollution. The rest of the plastic should be recycled and hence used again. This wills not only reduce the pollution, but also maintains the quantity of plastic in the market. We must control such sort of pollution and save our earth.

Placing a lien on properties in Malaysia

The need for cash can emerge at virtually any unknown time in the life of a person. Debts, mortgages, pending loans, bills or more, the reason could be any when an immediate need for cash to tackle such unfavorable situations can surface. Many a time's people when left empty handed opt to apply for a refinancing or mortgage or a lien on the property they own. The rules may vary from state to state, but any person applying for a lien on the property must consult an attorney to get the best legal advice and help.
Like everywhere else, lien on property is a common practice among people living in Malaysia too. While taking this step any person needs to get fully acquainted about the laws of the place and the legal formalities and paperwork that should be undertaken. Being assured that a person is legally covered can help in giving ample peace of mind and in bringing benefits that are to the best of one's abilities. Real estate malaysia is growing at a significant rate and it's not possible for every Malaysian to own a home and then be able to address all the charges that can surface at any unanticipated time.
While choosing to file a lien, a person has many different types to choose from. Just few that are described as the most common ones are contractor liens, mechanics liens, workmen liens and others. No person can file a lien against some other owner just because they owe you money. A hell lot of questions need to be addressed before taking such serious legal action.
The Malaysian property scenario has come a long way in the past couple of years and to ensure that every lender can gain back the lent amount, the government here is revising policies to meet the need and interest of people. The lien process too can be easily accomplished by applying directly in the court or by filling a simple form available easily. After a certain notice period, the first legal step that initiates the process of lien, which is suing the debtor in the court of law, is taken.
The court works to meet the interest of both the parties involved and thus a certain time period is allotted to the debtor before taking any legal action. if in case the debt still remains unpaid and the debtor is unable to meet the demands laid forth by the court then a lien is placed on the property in question. The owner cannot sell this property in such case before paying the lien first.
Although popular, but lien can be a time consuming process. The expense involved is however lower compared to other methods. Any person who is waiting to acquire money through such lien needs ample patience and it's like waiting for their turn to come.
Lien is not accepted in all the states, it's thus important to know the laws before undertaking any such legal action. Although slow, but this is a sure shot method for any person to get their money back from the debtor.

Work From Home As A Mentor

There are a lot of business out there today, and people looking to work from home almost have too many options. That's why it makes more sense not to look for a great business, but to look for a great mentor. A great mentor will ensure you succeed in your efforts to work from home, whereas a great business will provide you nothing if you don't get the guidance you need to really succeed.

What Is a Great Mentor?
You'll be able to spot a great mentor almost right away. If you've contacted the member of your work at home opportunity who is trying to recruit you, you'll see some major differences between a great mentor and someone who is just trying to convert you into a sale so they can succeed at your expense.

A Real Mentor Is Interested In You
When you're having your initial contact with your contact from the company you've chosen, what kind of language are they using? Are they telling you everything about their product, giving you all the stats on how it works and what it does? Are they telling you all the ways that you can benefit from it and why you need it? If you're asking those questions, then fine, but if they're just interested in converting you to a sale, you'll know. A great mentor will ask questions about you. Where you're from. What got you interested in their business. What made you choose the home business model. How you can come up with a custom tailored plan that works for you. By being more concerned with how to help you, rather than how to put money in their own pockets, real mentors show their true colours and when you can identify them, you're on the fast track to success. Then you'll be able to work from home and actually make money, because a mentor such as this will turn you into a mentor as well.

What a Mentor Does When You've Joined Forces
So if you've identified a person as a mentor that can help you win at working from home, you've gotten past the first hurdle. Now, what does a mentor do for you after you've joined forces? As much as possible, your recruiter/mentor/upline should be directing you to material and training that will make you into what they are, a mentor. It's not enough in today's market to just be a great salesman. People don't want to be sold. They want to learn, and if you're a good teacher, then what you have to offer is far more valuable than any product you might be peddling. Whatever you've got is just a means to an end, because it's the one-on-one coaching, training, and guidance that separates the salesmen from the mentors. Mentors should make it their personal business to see that you succeed. It benefits them too, because by making you find a way to work from home successfully, they ensure that you are someone who's going to spread the word of how great they are.

Lawn care marketing strategies that work.

Lawn marketing strategies can make or break your new lawn service business. There have been plenty a new lawn business owner who got started with the best of intentions only to flame out in extraordinary fashion because their lawn care marketing strategy was a dud and they just didn't ever get a chance to realize it.

What you don't want to do with your lawn care marketing is to print off a bunch of flyers and run down your street sticking them in doors with the hopes someone will call you back. That is probably the biggest mistake I see made all the time. You also don't want to stick a couple of lawn service flyers up at your local super market and hope everyone walking by it will need lawn care and call you. These methods will surely lead to dismal results.

What you do want to do with your lawn care marketing however is to put together a complete package. You want to wear a nice looking lawn business uniform. You want to be clean shaven and have your hair combed nicely. Then get some lawn care door hangers printed up. Take these and go door to door.

Don't just ring and run. Your goal is to talk to as many home owners as possible. When you ring the door bell, take a step back away from the door to give the home owner a little personal space and allow them to feel more comfortable opening it. Then present them with your door hanger and let them know you are offering lawn mowing services in the area and you had noticed a few issues with their property that you would gladly explain why it is a problem and how you would repair it.

Offer to walk the property with the potential customer and discuss different issues they may be having. Also, ask them if they have any questions on any other issues they may want to take care of on their property. When you are done with your lawn care marketing presentation, ask them for the sale by saying 'when can we begin?'

This is a sure fire method to improve the responses you get from local home owners and expand the list of lawn service customers you service. Remember, don't start without a good plan of attack. This lawn care marketing plan will help you see growth. Practice it in front of a mirror a few times before you begin and then feel confident future success is yours.
