Organized-officeA well-organized home office will increase your energy, focus and even inspiration levels. Design your office to facilitate your work. A poorly organized office causes you to waste precious time and decreases your motivation.
 

Here are some strategies for organizing your home office and increasing productivity

1. Put Everything You Need within Reach

A well-organized home office should facilitate productivity. Everything you need throughout the day, everyday, should be closest to your seating area. The goal is to have little to no interruptions while working.

If you have to get up every 5 minutes in order to get something or turn something on, it will be very hard to focus on the task at hand.

2. Phones

If you have a landline phone keep the base on or near your desk so when you (more…)

Following in my Footsteps and I’m so Proud!

My daughter decided to take a page from her mom's book and started her own business at 22 called Vinyl Decals Galore.

She took over my den in order to make Decals for cars, homes, phones, computers and any place else you'd like to stick them. She recently expanded (which means taking more space in my den, Ughh!) by purchasing another decal cutting machine and a steam press to make T-shirts!

So Awesome!

Last September we all pitched in and went to a car meet at our local casino. She made over $700 in 7 hours! $100 an hour! Not bad, huh? (more…)

Being a Virtual Assistant is NOT an easy task

Busy BusinessmanMany think that working from home is a wonderful thing and don't get me wrong it's pretty great but it can also be very distracting and crazy if you're not the type of person that is able to follow a schedule. The best way to handle working from home is to create a daily plan of action and set aside a space for yourself where you can have a little privacy to knock out those tasks.

Personally I never liked working from the kitchen table but if that's the only space you have then make it work for you. Set boundaries early on by letting your family know “It's work time”. If you have little kids you can give them chores or workbooks or sit them down with their own laptops or ipads so they can feel as if they are working just like mommy or daddy. (more…)

Start Your Affiliate Program


Imagine yourself in a tug-of-war scenario.

But what would happen if you added two more people to your side of the rope? You'd pull more customers in, right? (more…)

Give away a freebie(s)


Who doesn’t want to get more for their money and who doesn’t want to get something for free? We all do, particularly if the freebie has real value.

Imagine you’re in the market for a new pair of running shoes and one brand is offering a free pair of running socks, shorts or a t-shirt when you buy their shoes. You’d be more inclined to at least try that brand on your feet right? Many people would simply make the choice to buy based on that freebie offer. Even if the shoes are a bit more expensive than others. (more…)

Build a loyal, steady customer-base


“BUILD A LIST!” As a marketer, I'm sure you've heard this many times over. Building a list is one of the most vital steps you can take in the advancement of your online business. Twitter is pretty much the same as building a list – although it might be even more effective in the long run.

When it comes to an email list, a large portion of your subscribers won't even glance at the emails you send. Their eyes will glaze over and they may even send it to the trash. (more…)

Promote Others on Facebook


Twitter has their RT (Retweet) option and Facebook has a similar option.

At the bottom of most posts there’s a “Share” option.

When you see a post that is relevant to your audience, click on “share”. It will be posted to your wall and your friends will receive the information.

This is a fantastic networking tool and may motivate others in your circle to friend you and share your information as well.

Facebook Posts


What you post is as important as how often you post. Let’s just say up front that posting promotion after promotion and link after link to your business website is as much of a turnoff as SPAM is in your email inbox. You will lose friends instead of making them.

So what do you post?

Valuable information! It’s absolutely okay and recommended to publish content specifically for your Facebook audience. Publish tips, quotes, tidbits of information, links to your blog posts and new articles and even links and information about your industry that lead to websites other than your own. (more…)
