Working At Home With Bugger And Pesto: A Tale Of Two Kitties

My two cats have taught me many good home office habits. Most of these lessons have been learned the hard way, so maybe I can help you avoid the heartbreak of blank computer screens and other home office disasters by sharing a few tips I have learned along the way.1. Save your work…again, and again, and again…There are many ways to lose all your computer work. One of them is if your cat falls off the monitor onto your keyboard. (One for Bugger…)2. Always treat your cat with the utmost respect (you are allowed to be excessive in this matter; the more subservient you are, and sometimes even downright grovelling, the better).If you toss your cat off your desk out of anger, her first reaction is to take all paperwork with her. (Two for Bugger…)3. If anything at all EVER goes wrong with your computer, first check the location of your cat.One day I suddenly could not keep a window open on my computer. No matter what I did, no window would stay open, one would flicker on for a moment then disappeared again. I rebooted, that didn’t help. Finally I moved my cat 1 centimeter to the left, away from the keyboard. Voila, problem solved. The cat was ever-so-slightly leaning on the Esc key. (One for Pesto…)4. At the end of every work session, file all your paperwork. Do not leave a single scrap of paper on your desktop.In this case, the excuse “the dog ate my homework” needs to be corrected by exchanging “cat” for “dog”. (Two for Pesto…)5. Never drink while sitting at your desk.When your cat tries to drink out of your glass, she may get her head stuck in it and then…you don’t want to hear the rest, it’s not pretty… (Three for Pesto…)6. Work when it’s time to work, play when it’s time to play.And don’t play in your office, or your cats will come to expect it. Once your cat discovers the cursor, or anything else that moves on the computer screen, she will insist on playing. Typical behavior will include planting herself in front of the computor screen, mere millimeters away, for hours.Or, if you play “offline” in your office with your cat, she may develop the habit of climbing your chest and oh-so-gently pushing your face away from looking at the monitor and towards looking at her. (One for Pesto, one for Bugger, respectively…)And of course if you have more than two cats, the lessons multiply exponentially.If you do find that your furry friends are preventing you from conducting your home business, here is a helpful link, guaranteed to buy you some much-needed alone time:”Cat Bathing as a Martial Art” by Bud HerronEven cat bathing teaches valuable lessons to a home business owner, for cat bathing requires perseverance and courage of conviction.Now that you’ve learned these valuable lessons, good fortune with your home business (and with your pets). You are now armed withjhgj (The rest of this article has been deleted by Bugger)

Home Office Essentials Part Two

Welcome to Part Two of our series of articles on home office essentials. The last article discussed ergonomics and office furniture and your working environment. This next article will take that a step further and also look at the computer aspect of your home office.Decorate ItSome people design their home offices to be like a real world office. They take it that step too far though and strip their home office of all character and warmth. There’s no need for your home office to be sterile and boring. In fact it should be just the opposite.Seriously consider adding plants. They’re a healthy decoration in so many ways. The colour green has a positive affect on our thought patterns. This combined with the fact that plants filter toxins from the air around us is another great reason for having a “green” office.Hate those motivational posters you saw in work? Do you know why? They never “spoke” to you as a person. They were just corporate spindoctoring that meant nothing to you. Choose one single motivational poster that speaks to you and put it somewhere you can always see it. Even if it only makes you smile once during a working day because it’s cheesy that’s a positive influence on you.Last but not least consider having your mission statement printed out, framed and on your desk in front of you. You don’t have a mission statement? Get one! Write it now!Your mission statement is the reason you started your home business – make sure you are reminded of this every single day. It will push you forward when you need encouragement the most.Your ComputerStop. This is the point where you need to be really, really honest with yourself. Computers are expensive and tempting. The question you need to ask yourself is “What do I need in my computer?” and not “What kind of computer do I want?”Your home office does not *need* the latest superfast, supercool computer, printer, scanner, digital camera and external storage. You want this stuff. You don’t necessarily need it.Your business needs functionality. You business needs cost effectiveness. Buy what you need for your business. Do not buy what you want for yourself.Tips for buying your home office computer.* Mid-range processor powerIgnore the super powerful, super expensive next generation processors.They won’t help you type that document any faster.* 512MB of RAMThis is a minimum. If you can afford 1GB get it. If you can afford more get it. More RAM is always better.* 40GB hard diskWhat are you going to put on a 200GB hard disk? MP3s, movies and games. In other words 200GB of distractions. 40GB – 80GB is more than adequate for home office use.* 3D Graphic AcceleratorNext generation 3D chipsets are not essential business equipment. Most modern computers will have a 3D chipset by default. Simply don’t go upgrading this because you’re only doing it to play the latest games. Don’t buy a distraction.CDRW or DVDRW driveIf you value your business you’ll value your data. A CD or DVD writer/burner gives you the ability to safely and quickly backup your data. Do not buy a PC without one.LCD/Flat screensMTV Cribs has sold more flat screen tvs than any marketing campaign could hope to. Will a 21″ LCD screen make you work faster or better? Nope. CRT black porn monitors are cheaper and do the same job. If its supplied as standard with the system then that’s fine. Don’t go spending money on an LCD upgrade.Extended warrantiesSales people make large commissions from these. Do you really need a 5 year warranty on your computer? Will you still own the same computer in even 3 years? Never take these warranties at face value.Generic Brand ComputersJust because it isn’t Dell, IBM, HP or Compaq doesn’t mean it’s cheap. Generic brands use the same components as and are therefore equally as reliable as the big name brands like HP and Dell. Buy smart.Refurbished systemsIf the budget is tight and the spec is right then these are well worth considering. Be certain of what your warranty cover on such a system is though. Many refurbished systems only have a 90-day warranty.Phone-A-FriendCheck with friends who have purchased computers recently. What problems did they encounter when buying their PC? Who did they buy from? What was the aftersales service like?PrinterDoes your business really need a top-of-the-range color laserjet that prints 7,000 pages per minute? Nope? Didn’t think so.Here’s a brief list of questions you should ask yourself when buying your printer:* Do you need color printing capabilities?* How many pages per minute do you actually need to print?* What is the cost per page for color and black printing?* How much does replacement ink/toner cost?* How many pages of black text can you get from each cartridge?* How much desktop space will the printer require?* Are updated drivers and tech support for this model readily available?Hopefully this set of articles has proven useful to you. Again a few thousand words can’t possibly encompass everything you need to know about designing and operating a home office. [http://www.home-office-advisor.com] is there for that purpose.

What Should I Sell On-line?

One of the first things you will have to decide when setting up an Internet business is whether you want to sell a product or a service, both of which have their advantages and disadvantages.Products:Advantage: unlimited income potential because you are not constrained by time, the way you are with a service (the more product you sell the more income you make – especially when you are automated).Disadvantage: requires stocking and shipping (or drop-shipping from a supplier).Disadvantage: generally requires you filling large amounts of orders to make a reasonable living, unless you have a product with a very high profit margin.Services:Advantage: it is easier to make a profit quickly because the entire price of a service is paid to you (except for any overhead).Advantage: services can generate a great residual income because the client may want to hire your services again and again.Disadvantage: you are limited to a modest income because you can provide only so many services each day (unless you hire employees to perform services for clients).In my opinion, selling a product online has, by far seen the biggest profit potential in the long run. Once you get a successful product, you can automate the system and move on to new products that will generate multiple streams of income.If you need immediate cash flow, providing a service is the fastest way to produce instant income… but it will never pay off as big, in the long run, as selling a product with a high profit margin.If you sell a service, think about how you can transform it into a product. One of the best examples I can think of is regarding the people who submit websites to search engines. Because the competition got so fierce and their business began to suffer, some wrote and sold reports revealing how search engines work and tricks for getting sites listed higher etc. The reports were priced at $20 -$100, and the entrepreneurs in our example found new markets to tap.

Getting The Big Picture Series: Part 4-Enter The Web

Does the thought of managing your own website seem too complicated? What’s holding you back?A web page is simply a document with a .htm or .html extensionex. article.htm or article.htmlIt is important to have your own website when conducting business over the Internet. When you sign up for affiliate programs they give you a duplicate of the company website but the duplicate is not formated to be found by the search engines. You cannot include keywords and meta tags which are used by the search engines to index web pages.When you have your own website you have the opportunity to make a name for yourself not just promote the affiliate program. You can also market lots of products/services in one shot. Though it is not totally necessary to have a paid web host, it is a good idea if funds are available, being that there are some restrictions to having a free web hosting account. Such as the web host will add their advertisement to your site usually a banner at the very top of the page and when your site is indexed with the search engines a lot of times you will find their name in your listing.When you sign up for a paid account you will get a Domain name which is your site name with .com, .biz, .org etc. at the end. which equals a website address.ex. http://www.yoursitename.com as apposed to [http://www.freewebhost.yoursitename.com]Meaning that when you have a free account the web hosts name usually comes before your name, which is free advertisement for them. But, not always so shop around if your going to use a free account because there are some who allow your name before theirs such as Bravenet.Why Get Your Own Domain Name?To get an email address that you control.To get a business address on the Internet.To improve your Internet personal and business image.When getting started you should make an outline for your site. Know what you want to sell, what you want it to look like, what content your going to use, and what graphics if any you plan to use. Have a picture in your mind of what you want your site to look like. Then execute.Getting The Big Picture?

How To Start an Internet Business – The First Step

The vast majority of web sites are destined to fail before they are even built. Why? Because people building sites almost always put the cart before the horse. Actually, most don’t even include the horse.Evolution of Your SiteNew sites follow a typical evolutionary process.1. The first stage involves slaving over the design of the site to get just the right look;2. The second stage is the publication of the site;3. Third comes the first thought about how to get traffic to the site;4. Fourth, the discovery of pay-per-click options;5. Fifth, the pursuit of PPC campaigns and realization of sales!;6. Sixth, the “misery stage”, occurs with the realization that sales are being made at a loss!;7. Frustration, frustration, frustration;8. The “extinction stage” – With profitability seeming impossible, the PPC campaigns are closed and the site just sits there.Does any of this sound familiar? You need not suffer this evolutionary extinction! Taking one step before you build a site can save you a lot of wasted time and money.If You Build It, Will They Come?The first step to developing a successful web site is keyword analysis. Keywords are the anchors of each page of your site, a collective summary of your products and services.The first step to developing an online business is to identify whether there is sufficient traffic for your business product or service. Let’s look at a very simple example.If your are selling boating products, each page of your site should incorporate boating-related keyword phrases. You must analyze whether there is a sufficient number of searches each month to make your boating site a viable entity. A free method for doing this is to use the Overture inventory tool:http://inventory.overture.com/d/searchinventory/suggestion/In our example, we would do a search for “boating” to see how many searches there are for the keyword as well as other boating-related keyword phrases. A quick search shows there were over 100,000 searches for “boating” and over 4,000 searches for “boating supply” in March 2005. These numbers suggest that there clearly is enough traffic to build a site selling boating products.Alternatively, assume that we want to build a site promoting our hiking guide service in Nevada. If we do a search for “Nevada hiking” using the Overture inventory tool, we find that there are only 100 or so searches a month. Should we go ahead and build the site? Probably not. There simply isn’t enough interest to justify spending the time and money.Unfortunately, we often talk with site owners that have spent significant amounts of money building a site only to find that there is little interest in their product or service. By performing keyword analysis, you can determine whether a site should be built before you spend the time, energy and money on it. There is little reason to build a site that has no chance of success.

Part 3 of 5 – How “Pipe Dreams” Can Become Realities!

DO YOU HAVE THE POTENTIAL?Within you is the power to accomplish anything you want. But it will not happen if you are not tuned into your true desires. Don’t fool yourself into compromising for less than a complete goal. If you want to be an artist, you may not be the world’s most famous artist, but if you have that inclination, you will be an artist. If you want to succeed in business, you may not be another financier/mega-millionaire, but you will succeed in your endeavors.Most people need accomplishment feedback. After all, what’s so great about achieving something if nobody cares? And it’s important to receive that recognition and feel that love.Set goals that you can achieve. Divide them into little tidbits that you can accomplish every day, every month, every year. Set your goals for success.Then reap the rewards constantly – each step of the way. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done, then move on. Start immediately to accomplish the goals you have set. In fact, give yourself a task that you can finish by tomorrow. Think of yourself as a success in your endeavors. Dwell on the idea that you are compelled to accomplish your goals, and live and breathe them until you have them.Can you see yourself a year from now, having achieved a few goals? Can you make the decision and commitment to become successful in your desires? Then you have the potential to accomplish anything you want.THE POWER OF SELF-IMAGEVisualizing yourself as a success in your field of endeavor is the inside tip in accomplishing anything you want. If you can specifically imagine being the person you want to become, you will attain that reality.Forgive yourself. Just as you would another person, tell yourself that it’s okay for all those mistakes, or the should-haves that keep popping up in your mind. Don’t dwell on the past and get blocked by events from long ago.Let go of fears and anxieties. Although it certainly is easier said than done, learn to change negative thoughts into a positive action. Are you afraid of poverty – that you’ll never make ends meet, or never buy that house, or be destitute once you stop working? Then turn that into the positive goal of financial security.Do people make you anxious? Maybe you feel inferior, not as good as others. Everybody has feelings of inadequacy. Just turn them around into positive goals. You may be paralyzed by the thoughts that you are unattractive. It is your thoughts that make it a reality. Change your modes of behavior and you will make friends. In most cases, it is your own negative thoughts that cause you to stay stuck in whatever place you’re in. Keep moving. Take the risks. You may need to change your job, or move to another city. You might take up a sport or hobby. Become active in your life – participate. And you will grow into the image you see for yourself.SUCCESS IN BUSINESSPerhaps the most sought-after goal in our present society is success in business. Whether you want to be promoted into high paying management positions, or wish to start your own independent enterprise, knowledge of the business world is important.As you plan a course of action towards accomplishing your goal, keep in mind the small goals that put you closer to the end. And be prepared to change often. You may need to change companies, or take the opportunities in other departments as those positions open.Create an aura of success around you. People who are successful dress that way. Even if you’re not in a high-income bracket, act as though you have already achieved – without being egotistical or overspending.Develop an expertise in an area. Don’t keep special information to yourself, but be quick to learn all there is about your position and the tasks surrounding getting that job done. Capitalize on your strengths, and let others help you develop your weaknesses into assets.Get to know the people in the company and the people in the industry. Read all the trade journals and magazines relating to your company. Make appointments with people who are successful in your field and learn from them.You need to have a total commitment to succeed in business. Most people who make it to the executive boardroom put in long hours, often at the sacrifice of everything else. Regardless of the physical effort involved, you must mentally be engrossed in your business and the company enterprises.In order to help yourself develop fully, you might seek a mentor, someone who will offer you time and teach you the ropes. This person usually is someone who believes in your ability, someone who you can develop a mutually beneficial business relationship with.Some people become friendly with all their co-workers and find that is a way to advance. But don’t try to be extroverted if it’s not real to you. Most people who successfully run their own businesses are individuals who like to work alone.As you increase your activities and accomplishments, you increase your potential to reach higher. The more you achieve, the more confidence you develop to achieve more. You don’t have to be the same as everyone else and fit like a vegetable in a patch. Be unique, different. Capitalize on your own self-image. Don’t fall victim to self-consciousness. And trust your intuition. Hunches and inner feelings usually are the best route to travel, regardless of what seems to be the logical choice.Make decisions quickly and with firmness. A true leader will handle these responsibilities efficiently. That’s what makes you different and why you’ll rise to the top. Be persistent in attaining your goals, but be open and sincere.If you are having personal difficulties with any co-workers, try to know more about these people from a personal angle. Be interested in them and their accomplishments and goals. You might be able to turn opposition into friendship.Above all, use your integrity. If the goal is not worthy of your inner desires, it will be hard to attain. If your methods are not sincere, you will receive opposition. If your actions are not honest, you will suffer the consequences. Turn all negative qualities into positive aspects – then watch yourself achieve.Part 3 of 5 – How “Pipe Dreams” Can Become Realities!© 2004, Jon Kogan, All Rights Reserved.Jon KoganEDITOR – Home Business Breakthroughs Ezine[http://www.zivomarketing.com]Helping People Help ThemselvesF-R-E-E Home Business Breakthroughs Email Newslettermailto:subscribe@zivomarketing.comWould you like to make money online, but don’t know where to start?…You are not alone and here’s a solution just for you: [http://www.zivomarketing.com/guide]

Assisting You Virtually- How Virtual Assistants are Changing The Face Of The Workplace

Virtual Assistants, or VA’s are changing the way we do business. Not only is this field growing tremendously, but it’s offering employers and business owners alike an attractive new alternative to hiring employees.Perhaps because this is a relatively new industry, it’s hard to pin down exactly how many Virtual Assistants there are out there.Susan Valeri was a VA before she even knew she was a VA.”I started [doing this work] and then I came across the term Virtual Assistant on the Internet and I thought, ‘…that’s me!’. I didn’t really know that there were other people doing it,” Valeri comments.So is there an easy way to define a Virtual Assistant? Not according to Stacy Brice, President and Chief Visionary Officer of AssistU, an organization that provides training and coaching to virtual assistants.”The definition of what a VA will vary, depending on who you ask,” Brice contends. “I have a very much branded definition [and that] is that a VA is a person who owns her own business, works from her home office, provides administrative and personal support across the board to clients who can be down the street or around the world…but in collaborative, long-term relationships.”Some define a VA as anyone who works from home and provides any sort of support cartoon porn virtually.Stacy disagrees. “If you’re a Marketing Consultant, and you do that from home, that doesn’t make you a Virtual Assistant, that makes you a Marketing Consultant who works from home. So, I think that using the term Virtual Assistant as a catch-all for anything a person can do from home, that is supportive of other businesses, is a false definition.”The International Virtual Assistant’s Association (IVAA) defines a VA as:”VAs are independent contractors who provide administrative support or specialized business services from a distance, through the Internet, fax, telephone or another method of communication. They can help a company that needs extra people to meet seasonal demands; provide unique skills for a special project; or step in to meet the demands of business growth, locally, domestically or globally.”Despite the varying definitions, what everyone can agree on is the fact that this is a growing industry that can be a lucrative home business opportunity. At the same time, a Virtual Assistant can offer tremendous benefits to the business owner that contracts them.Virtual Assistants are not hired as employees. They are business owners themselves and are hired on a contract basis. An employer who works with a VA has the distinct advantage of not having to deal with taxes, unemployment insurance, sick leave, vacation pay, or benefits. Rather than having to provide additional office space, and be responsible for the development and supervision of an employee, they can enjoy the support and assistance of a professional without the headaches of hiring and managing employees.And while VA’s are in a support role, that doesn’t mean that they are in a subordinate role.According to Brice, the ideal VA is someone who “genuinely loves being in a support role and doesn’t see that as having to be in a sort of one-down position. Someone who can really see that if I use my skills in supporting you, I can absolutely be your equal. I’m just bringing a different set of skills to your table.”Asked about the skills that make for a successful VA Brice responds, “I think that VA’s typically are talented admins, who just want out of the corporate world.”Of course, basic administrative skills are a must. At AssistU, fewer than half of the applicants get to the first interview.Says Brice, “I don’t want to be teaching someone to use Word for the very first time. I don’t want to be talking to someone about telephone etiquette. Of course we can talk about that on a higher level, but what was important to me is that these people come out of a background where they already have a certain number of years with that kind of experience. I think that someone who doesn’t have any administrative type background would find it possibly very much more difficult to become a fabulous VA.”Another critical skill would have to be resourcefulness. Most VA’s are generalists, that is they offer a variety of services to clients across different industries. Sooner or later, a client is going to ask them to do something that they don’t know how to do.”It’s not so important that any VA can do it all,” says Brice. “What’s more important is that she knows how to get it done. Because if you’re my client, and you need something done, and I don’t know how to do it or I don’t like to do it, you’re not really going to care as long as I can get it handled for you.”As with any business, flexibility is important. Susan Valeri, who lives in the Central time zone, has a client on the West Coast. This can be both a benefit and a challenge.”[It] works out great for me because by the time she wakes up, I’ve got her work done!” On the other side of the coin, “She’s getting revved up when I’m getting ready to have dinner. So I can hear my email going off while I’m cooking.”In addition to administrative skills, soft skills are also integral. A successful VA is someone who can be proactive about how they can help a client to achieve their goals, and they need to be able to convey this to a potential client.And as with any business, integrity is vital. One of Valeri’s responsibilities is to answer emails regarding her client’s business. “I’d better be honest, open and knowledgeable about her business,” she insists. “Get a good grasp of my clients business, how they want things run, what their product is, so that I can intelligently answer inquiries.”Aside from the obvious impact that integrity has on the success of any business owner, it also affects the type of client that a VA attracts.”If I act with integrity, then I’m going to get more business and I’m going to attract the kind of people that I want to do business with,” Valeri says.Brice agrees. According to her, one of the smartest things a potential VA can do is to invest in their own life because, “you’ll become more attractive and be able to attract a more high quality client.” If your goal is to work with people of a high caliber and high ethics, you’d better demonstrate those principals yourself.While most VA’s are generalists, many specialize in a particular field. For example, when Brice was a VA she was deeply niched and only worked with best-selling authors. One advantage of becoming niched is the ability to charge a higher hourly rate. According to Brice the low end of the pay scale is about $30 per hour. In fact, she feels that a VA cannot make a profit billing at less than that. She projects that by 2003 the average experienced VA will be billing at around $60 per hour, and “much higher for someone who’s deeply niched and incredibly good at what she does.” Brice herself commanded over $100 per hour for her services when she was a VA.While this is a fairly new industry, there are several organizations that offer support and resources to VA’s. Many VA’s agree that becoming a member of one of these organizations can be a tremendous help to someone starting out.Valeri says that looking back, she would have joined a professional organization earlier to start networking with other people doing this type of work.And Brice offers this advice:”Look at all your options. Look at what it would be to get trained, and really investigate that. Look at what it would be to go it on your own and investigate that, as well. And find the organization, whether it’s AssistU, or another VA organization. Find the organization that you believe is going to support you in the way that you need to be supported. And be honest with yourself about it. That’s where I see a lot of arrogance. ‘I’ve been an administrative assistant for 12 years, I don’t need any help.’ Trust me, you need help. This is a brand new world. Working virtually is not the same as being an assistant in the corporate world. It just is not.”Want more information?AssistU hosts a free telediscussion about Virtual Assistance.

Does Your Webpage ‘Grab?’

For each webpage you make available to Internet users, ask yourself the purpose of that particular page and what makes it different from the others.The primary content should consume the bulk of the page and be displayed prominently, yet without the Hollywood glitz which just turns visitors off. The headline should identify this content so visitors can easily ferret out whether or not it’s useful to them.The primary content should never, EVER, be in small font; after all, it contains the product and/or service you are offering–in other words, your lifeblood. Don’t make the visitor go hunting; they won’t and they’ll be gone with the click of a mouse.In a world where nearly anyone (even me) can publish professional looking material, it’s still virtually impossible to tell from appearance alone how credible the information is, or how trusting a service is.Every page, therefore, should carry information about who created and published it or a link to said information. Resource boxes are extremely helpful in this light.And, every page should be self-explanatory. The headings and subsequent information should provide adequate background knowledge to someone who has seen no other pages on your site.A company name or logo is an obvious way to provide information about the publisher. Avoid, at all risk, “cutesy” page headings that don’t adequately describe the ad copy. You should also affix a date on every page with substantial content and update it regularly.Always read and re-read each and every word on every page before offering it up to the Internet public. There is such a thing as “spellcheck” so don’t be afraid to use it! Misspelled words dictate unprofessionalism.Without a great look, your website sales will be limited and your customers might be annoyed. Remember: they’re #1!
