Time Management For Successful Home Biz

According to StartYourOwnBiz.com they have come up with some great advice on managing your home business.

This is a site that will give you more tips on getting started with the basics.

You cannot expect to get great results unless you are devoting the amount of time needed, you just can’t set it up, then hope that it runs itself.

Are you serious about working at home, making a success out of a home based business? If you are, and really want to make some money in the process, you will need to become a wonderful time manager. It is hard enough to manage the home itself, then you add in the kids, errands, etc…and you can see your time gone, out the window. If you are serious about being a success, making this home business really work, you will not be able to use the Lack of time as an excuse. You are going to have to make a strict routine in order to help you manage your time.

There is an old saying If there is a will, there is a way. You will be amazed at the extra time you can create just by organizing your work and home routines.

Here are some things you may want to consider as your design your plan;

  1. Take a look at your typical day, where to do you spend your time and is it on things that are necessary? Ask yourself in which areas you can slice off 15 minutes here and there. If you spend a lot of time in preparing meals, how can you make this more time efficient.
  2. Plan your errands in advance, giving yourself enough time to complete them instead of feeling rushed.
  3. Teach your children to be self-reliant and self-disciplined, which will free up much of your time. You can give your older child the responsibility of helping with the younger children while you are ‘at work’, and reward them for their help as well as their understanding.
  4. How much time do you spend watching the TV? You may not be sitting directly in front of it, but how many times does it grab your attention for a few minutes here and few minutes there. Before you know it, you have lost an hour easily
    time fllies
    The things listed above are not the only time mongers; there are the chores of gardening, shopping, bill paying, visiting with your friends and relatives, chatting on the phone, and don’t forget, just simply browsing the Internet and reading emails. All of these things can take up a lot of your time throughout the day.

You will find these things a bit difficult to change in the beginning, but you will for sure see the importance and recognize how much time you are losing each day. By implementing a time management regimen, you will find the time you need to make your home business a success.

It’s April and We Are Nobody’s Fool…

If You Were Browsing the Web On April Fools Day, You May Have Seen These…

April Fools Day is always at great day because you can play all types of pranks on your buddies, but with the Internet, it can be a blast! I did some looking around and I found some great information about one of the largest gaming industries and the pranks they played. This company would be none other than Blizzard, the top gaming industry on the web. According to Shack News, Blizzard Entertainment posted quite a few hilarious pranks on their website. One of the most popular of their spoofs was “PC MMO World of Warcraft will hit Atari 2600 in the form of World of Warcraft: The Molten Core.”…This was a very clever, and yes, extremely funny and entertaining bit of advertising. You feel like you are back in the early days of Pac Man again. If you have not checked it out, you need to do it soon.

Are You A Fan of Guitar Hero?

Another one of my favorites was Blizzards news of bringing you a Guitar Hero type character to the amazing new expansion to World of Warcraft called Wrath of the Lich King, along with its plans to marketing a pinata that can be a bit dangerous for any child, even adults for that matter. This is a Pinata that you would never allow your child to swing at. Remember folks, this was only a joke.

Ever thought of living on Mars?

Here Richard Branson, founder of Virgin along with Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be breaking a new frontier in the greatest adventure of our lifetime, a first for all to witness, The Adventure of Many Lifetimes; the first human colony to ever live off of this planet, the first to live on Mars. This was great; they even had a test you could take to see if you would qualify. Who knows… it could happen!

And finally, the greatest one of all, at least if you are as fed up with the whole political race as I am…the Hillary and Obama Deathmatch as seen here on ESPN’s website. It’s just too bad there wasn’t something that exciting really happening. According to the information on this website, Hillary and Obama would be able to settle the race by winner taking all, the loser heading home with his or her head hanging low, with a good ole deathmatch. There would have been several events which is officiated by Ron Paul, the Libertarian candidate. Check out the website for the cool challenges that could have happened.

Leave it to the Web to make April Fools Day a fun one, and I can only imagine what they will come up with next year.

What’s Their Plan?

First and foremost they are looking to save a lot of trees, which I am all for. They are also looking to utilize their space to service those who have some very important documents that were created long before the digital era. There may also be some documents that have been lost, out of print, or printed but now deleted. This provides a new life to documents that can be shared among many re-digitized and accessible to all.

The reason I am all for this and ready to support them is they are providing a great service at no cost to you.
