How To Manage Your Business

by Obinna Heche

Persons working at a home business have a better chance of success if they can learn to close their eyes and ears to anyone and anything in the home that detracts their focus from the task at hand. When you work for someone else in their place of business, chances are there is not going to be a television you can watch whenever you feel like it, and while there might be a radio available, it is probably playing in the background causing no distraction to your ability to get your work done.

Your work outside the home probably is not constantly interrupted by a spouse or child, unless you have a really tolerant boss and from your desk you most likely can not see dirty dishes in the sink or a pile of laundry that needs done and will not notice the grass has grown in the past few days and needs cut again. While working at home does have many advantages, it is also rife with distractions that can take the focus off of the task at end and toss a torpedo into the heart of your work world.

The first few months not days or weeks, but months of working at home are going to be filled with distractions, especially if you have a spouse that works outside the home. It will take them some time to realize that yes, you are at home all day but you are working and no, you do not have time to run the vacuum cleaner no matter who is expected to arrive for dinner. If you want to do this while taking a break or having lunch, that is ok, but putting your work aside to take care of a household chore can set a dangerous precedent for the future.

Establishing a work schedule is a must for any business owner and even more important when running a home business. Even if you seldom see any customers or clients in your home office, you still have to maintain a semblance of professionalism. The idea of sleeping in and sitting down at your desk at the crack of noon in your favorite pajamas or sweat pants may be inviting, but it does little to improve your self discipline. Besides, there may be something on television you want to watch that night and nothing will get done in your business.

When you accept work from clients you are making them a promise that it will be done in a timely manner. Some of the most successful home business operators still set their alarm clock, get up, get dressed and go to work at the same time every day. This will set the personal tone for your business and will lead to a better chance of success. If you allow all the little household chores to come between you and your work, the house may be spotless, especially for the next occupants after you get kicked out for not being able to pay the rent or mortgage.

Attend Procurve's Presentation "Successfully Playing the Network Security Game"

by wowgao

For Immediate Release

Attend Procurve's Presentation "Successfully Playing the Network Security Game" at the 2008 Government & Health Technologies Conference and Expo

March 25, 2008 - Toronto, Canada - ProCurve Networking by HP will deliver a presentation on "Successfully Playing the Network Security Game: Combining the Offense and the Defense" at the 2008 Government and Health Technologies Conference and Expo. Mauricio Sanchez, Chief Network Security Architect will be the speaker at this annual event, being hosted April 15 -16, 2008 at the Design Exchange in Toronto, Canada.

Building a secure network is no game to consider lightly. The age of innocence is over. Technologies, as well as those using them, have become more savvy, more intricate and at times, more dangerous. Enterprise networks, which act as the gateway and hotbed for both intentional and unintentional harm, are increasingly vulnerable. Downtime is no longer an inconvenience, but a costly and debilitating specter.

One successful strategy for building a secure network is to play both the security offense and security defense at the same time by combining the offense and defense into a single coordinated security strategy.

This session will offer direction for playing and winning against the complexities of secure network operations. It will identify trends in secure technologies that will enhance your network with the utmost protection in today's business and technology environment.

Closets By Design

by Closetworld

Closet World - More than Just a Garage

A home is supposed to be a comforting place â€" a place where you can relax and release all of the stress that has piled on you throughout the day. There are some rooms in a home, however, that just aren't that relaxing. Take, for instance, a basement or attic. No one likes going into a basement or an attic, but that's where many people store most of their belongings. Another similar place in most homes is the garage. Having a garage is a wonderful way to avoid having to go out in inclement weather to get into your vehicle, but did you realize that your garage can become more than just a place to park your car?

Custom Closets is a company that people turn to when they are looking to make their closets beautiful and organized. Many don't realize, though, that Closet World does more than just organize closets. For years Closet World has been helping their customers to organize every corner of their home, and one of the most interesting places that Closet World helps people to organize is the garage. Can you imagine what it would be like to not only be able to fit your car, but to also have a place for all of your tools or for the things you need to store away?

Closets can make this dream happen. Using some of the best organization systems around, Closet World designers can transform your garage from a mass of disorganized storage space to a place that you actually enjoy being. Some customers who have used the Closet World services to make their garages a more beautiful and workable space have done so in order to have a place to hold their belongings, such as their Christmas or Easter decorations. Others, however, have a member of the family who likes to tinker around, and for those people, Closet World creates a workbench-type space which allows plenty of room for "tinkering" as well as plenty of room for storage.

If you would like to transform your garage from simply being a place to store your vehicle to being a place where you can store, organize, and tinker to your heart's content, schedule a consult with Closet World. You will be amazed at how our designers can transform your space.

Who is the Reverse Funnel System For?

by Jonathan Budd

There is a vast range of people who the reverse funnel system is for but the reverse funnel system is not made for everybody.

It is made for people who want to make a lot of money.

It is made for people who are willing to work hard and work long hour days.

It is for people who want to retire after 3-5 years in the business instead of 30-50.

Its simple, you need to be a great marketer to work the reverse funnel system and you need to be consistently driving traffic to your link to the system but eventually you will have produced so many avenues for traffic to come from that you will begin to not even know where you are getting this traffic from.

You will have people searching YOU out and you might have to ask them how they found you.

The reverse funnel system is for hard workers, but smart workers. The reverse funnel system is for people who don't want to spend the entire medium, the prime of their life, in a cubicle or in some other person working for some one else.

If you are on the internet and searching for this right now... the reverse funnel system if for you. But what you need to do with the reverse funnel system is join a team that knows what their doing, a team that's making money, a team that will teach you how to make money because they know what their doing and seriously there are too many people out there that are too concerned with their own marketing and getting their $1,000 commission to really show their down lines what needs to be done, it's easier for them to concentrate on just getting another sale for themselves then take the time out to work with their team.

That is who the Reverse Funnel System is for.

Success Isn't Magic

by Traci Hayner Vanover

I've always been fascinated by magic tricks. When I was a little girl, my Grandpa used to magically pull a quarter from behind my ear. Back then, I wasn't as interested in how the trick was done as I was in getting my mitts on the quarter (big shocker).

My fascination with magic tricks hasn't wavered; but my interest in how the illusions are created has greatly increased. I tend to watch more closely now, and scrutinize every gesture in the hopes of discovering the secrets behind the trick.

Over the last few years, you may have had the opportunity to see Val Valentino, also known as the Masked Magician. Valentino is the guy who performed both large and small-scale illusions and magic tricks, then revealed the secrets of the tricks afterward. He wore the mask because he wanted to avoid recrimination from fellow magicians for breaking the magician's code.

You can't blame the magicians for wanting to protect their tricks. If all of their secrets got out, then everyone would be able to perform these feats of illusion, and they'd be out of a job.

So, why am I telling you all of this? It's simple, really. The successful titans around us aren't all that different from the magicians. And, many work equally hard at protecting their secrets. Why? Because many of these "secrets" aren't secrets at all -- they are formulas, systems, and well-honed processes -- and, if we figured them out, we'd be successful, too.

Apply your curiosity and energy toward emulating those whom you would aspire to be like. Make yourself a student of their efforts and their actions. Read and study all that you can. If you follow the success of others long enough, you will discover the "magic" behind their success.

Debt Relief Solution For Americans! Finally A Way to Manage And Settle Your Debt!

by Steven Davidson

If you are in debt the worst thing you can do is pretend the problem doesn't exist; your financial fate is actually in your hands and to improve your situation you will have to start looking into your options. Seeking debt relief means that you admitted you are in trouble but you must take the next steps seriously as there is a great deal to lose otherwise. Debt has become a major problem in many countries but it is important to reduce debt burdens seriously if you do not want to live with less worry.

Do not let panic over the situation rule your actions as you will probably end up in a worse predicament. Although hard, it will pay you in the long term to continue to make your monthly repayments on any loans and find other ways to save money.

At this stage you have to be quite brutal and list all monthly expenditure; from this you will be able to eliminate expenses that are not required and might be considered as luxuries. One hard action you will face is to slow down or stop the use of your credit card then start using cash again and you will find yourself being more careful.

You will be surprised to learn that spare money is available which can be put to good use; saving it as part of your debt relief solution, even if it takes a while for it to be worth anything. You will also find that if you do not eat out as regularly or continue with other types of entertainment then this too can go into the fund and help pay off your creditors one by one.

Whilst home refinancing is a way to pay off your debts many people try to reduce their outgoings instead, this just gives the person a bigger mortgage but this just increases the amount you will pay in the future. However, prior to adopting this option, think about whether your choice of debt repayment is instrumental in giving you money and if the answer is yes, then will this method be ideal but there are other ways too.

Robbing Peter to pay Paul is a system whereby you remove cash from your credit card account to pay the debts accrued on it, but this really is a short term debt relief solution as it increases the balance on it. If none of these options can work, including the mortgage refinance then you may have to consider bankruptcy but take advice from a bankruptcy attorney first.

Unfortunately, some people in debt avoid bankruptcy and resort to using their individual retirement account to help pay their debts but you are on a slippery slope if you take this route. There is far too much to lose with this option so you would be better advised to find alternative answers and learn debt relief methods that are more fiscally responsible.

I was once fighting to get out of my debt, and was fortunate to stumble on this debt relief program which has changed my life http://www.free-my-debt.com">www.free-my-debt.com

Success: Something to Chew On

by Traci Hayner Vanover

Even if you aren't a connoisseur of chewing gum, you'll find something to chew on in this short story:

One day, Mr. Wrigley (of chewing gum fame) was traveling on a train between New York and Chicago. His traveling companion asked him why he continued to spend so much money on advertising and publicity.

After thinking about it for a moment, Wrigley replied, "How fast is this train going?"

"About 60 miles per hour."

"Why doesn't the railroad company remove the engine and let the train travel on its own momentum?"

I love this story, particularly because it illustrates one of the best traits that all successful people possess. They keep on moving, aspiring, and creating. If you think about this for a minute, you can come up with dozens of examples -- from our founding fathers to professional athletes, and everyone in between. Were they content to sit around and rest on their laurels? No way!

You won't find folks like these sitting on the sidelines; instead, they are out there -- in the fray, making waves, creating headlines, and invariably, creating the products that will "wow" us tomorrow.

If you aspire to be one of the Wrigleys of the world, you can't expect to get there without putting forth the effort. You have to be willing to jump in, work hard, get dirty, and break a sweat.

Sure, there is a potential for failure...but guess what? Some of the greatest achievements this world has ever seen have come on the coattails of a failure.

Of course, the flip side of the coin is this - you could also knock one out of the park. But you'll never know until you step up to the plate and take the pitch.

Anyone got any gum?

Audio Marketing - An Idea Whose Time Has Come!

by Pat Wiklund

Whenever I suggest to a client that they consider adding audio to their marketing and product development projects, they come back with some version of "low class and tacky!"

Truth be told, I used to think so too. Equating audio on the Web, or in my marketing materials as some version of Friendly Henry the Used Car Guy or The Ronco Pitch Man blasting from late night television.

No longer. Using audio for online and off line marketing, or even product development, has enabled many professionals to bypass their own limitations, and serve their market much more effectively. Much can be accomplished with either low-tech tools, or simple online services.

A long-time colleague of mine, Sabrina Braham, readily admits that she just doesn't like to write. However, as a therapist, consultant and coach, speaking comes naturally. Earlier this year, Sabrina developed a new podcast-based websiteas a primary service and marketing strategy. She regularly interviews a successful woman leader, and then posts the interview on the site, and announces the new post. This process is all supported by using a simple online audio service I had shared with her.

Teleseminars have become popular marketing and product production tools. By offering a seminar by phone, listeners all over the country can gain the knowledge they seek, while everyone gets to stay home, have their own favorite snacks, and lounge in their comfortable clothes...even the presenter. Recording the teleseminar takes no fancy equipment. Just use the same service both Sabrina and I use which is inexpensive and always available. It even helps you make the player for posting on the web, or allowing people to download the audio file, or both. (Don't know how to do teleseminars? Check out Jeanette Cates' great "Teleseminar Basics" training program. She has all the tips and tools needed to get you started, at a price you'll appreciate.)

-- You may also choose to record your phone coaching sessions as a bonus for your clients. With "Next Step Coaching" the on-demand coaching program I developed recently, each of my clients gets a recording of their session. Since it's a suggestion/action item rich session, a client can download and listen any time they choose. This makes keeping track of and implementing action items so much easier when you can review the original brainstorming session.

-- You can use an audio file itself as a product, adding the handouts and support files from a teleseminar, or do what I sometimes do—I offer a copy of my notes for the teleseminar—the notes I use to keep the content on track.

-- Or, use the recording as the base for electronic books, workbooks, and special reports by having it transcribed. "You'll be writing at the speed of sound," as Jeanette says.

Just don't wait for a teleseminar. Ask a colleague to interview you about your area of expertise or interview the experts you know. Have the recording transcribed and use all or part of it to produce multiple books and reports.

Special web-based transcription services can return a Word document within 36 hours from a clear recording. Do go to the effort of having it edited and then formatted to make sure your clients and customers see the value of your information as much as you do.

To go even further, consider developing a regular radio show focusing on your market and with the experts you already know. Raven Blair of Women Power Talk Radio has done just that. She has been able to showcase her expertise with the interviews and guests she interviews on her shows. She is now sharing with others how to do what she has done.

==My favorite use of audio==

Use audio to build your mailing list and give a piece of yourself to potential clients and leads. Record one of the marketing presentations you've given to a business group. Then offer to send new contacts a CD of the presentation for only the cost of shipping and handling. (About $5-$6) Because CD's are so inexpensive to produce, the shipping and handling will cover your full costs, including production. You will have a new lead to put into your keep-in-touch marketing program and they get to hear the full story about how you can be helpful. A real Win-Win!

Consider adding audio this next year. It could make a huge difference in profitability and marketing in your business.

Three People Die Each Day From Workplace Violence-Know The Signs

by sas_abbsafetynet

A workplace violence program should be based on the possibility of violence occurring. First, evaluate any past incidents of violence or possible violence. A threatening phone call from an estranged spouse to an employee a can be called a violent incident. There are three basic categories of violence. (Criminal Act, Recipient of a Service, and Employment Relationship)

A criminal act of violence involves verbal threats, threatening behavior or physical assaults by an assailant who has no legitimate business relationship to the workplace. Areas at risk are in money handling, working alone, workplace in a high crime area, valuables located at workplace, public safety issues.

In a recipient of a service act of violence, the person causing violence is either the recipient or the object of a service provided by the workplace. The person is a current or former client, passenger, or customer. Areas at risk are in working alone, being in a high crime area, drugs and alcohol, misunderstanding of rules and procedures, and conflicting expectations of the service.

In an employment relationship act of violence, the person has an employment-related involvement with the workplace: In a job related act of violence, a current or former employee is angry about a certain situation. In a non-related act of violence, a person who has a relationship with a current or former employee is upset about a certain situation. Domestic violence erupting at work is one of the most common types of workplace violence.

Every employee should understand that violence should be expected but can be avoided through preparation. Employees should be instructed to limit physical interventions in workplace altercations whenever possible. Employees who may face safety and security hazards should receive formal instruction on the dangers associated with the workplace. The training program should involve all employees. They must know the early signs of warning signs or situations that may lead to assaults. They must also know how to deal with hostile persons and how to put some kind of barrier between then and the event. (For example a locking door or activating an alarm system)

Accepting violence will occur in the workplace will lead to a policy that aid in training. Being prepared for the worst will keep everyone as safe as possible.

Your Own Sales Success Check-off List

by Henry Gibson

All money-making ventures, in some way or another, involve selling something to someone. Be it a product, a service, your time/talent etc you're going to have to sell something. But what if you're not a natural salesman? Can you still succeed?

You bet you can! What you need is a plan:

1: Find your target market. It's no good selling hamburgers to vegetarians. Check out your local patch, see which companies are going to generate you money. If you live in an industrial area pop in and ask who's responsible for buying new products or sourcing new services. It sounds scary but it does get easier each time you do it. Always keep a data base of the companies or opportunities you have investigated for your own records.

2: Have a list of questions that will let you know straight away if the company, person or opportunity is right for you. Do they use the service you are offering? Does their particular business make use of your own special skills, knowledge, etc?

3: Make a list of points that you want to raise when you call back to speak to the decision maker. Remember to include the really important stuff like why your service/product is different, special offers you're promoting, etc. Don't write a speech though and keep the language casual. Nothing is more off putting than hearing a sales guy who sounds like he's reciting a script parrot-fashion.

4: When you do call back, make sure you are speaking to the right person. Sales managers spend hours drumming this into the heads of their guys 'on the road' because trying to sell to the wrong person is a more common mistake than you'd think. There could be layers of decision makers to plough through, or the guy who orders the supplies is not the guy who signs the cheques, etc. So don't waste time. Ask the person you're speaking to if they make the decisions and then - if it's business - ask if they have 'sign off on the budget'. If they do, then you've got the right person.

5: Keep your introduction short and snappy. Nobody wants to know your life story, the history of your company or what you had for breakfast so keep it short and sweet. Give them your name and your company name.

6: Don't kid a kidder. The people you are calling know that you want something from them; a meeting, an order, and you're not going to be the only one who's called them that week, day, hour etc, so don't try to conceal the reason you're calling. Be upfront and professional. Remember the person you're talking to has heard it all before, and if he asks upfront if this is a sales call, don't lie.

7: Be honest. Don't promise the Earth if you can't deliver it. If you don't understand something the guy on the other end says, asks him to explain a bit more, don't try to bluff it. You're trying to build a relationship here.

8: Don't be pushy - take a hint. If someone says he's not interested find out when would be a good time to call back. It's one thing to overcome objections like, "Won't changing suppliers be a hassle?" and that sort of thing, it's another thing altogether to hassle them.

9: Always try to end the call with some kind of commitment. An arrangement to call back, to send further details by post or email, or, ideally, an appointment. But if he is adamant that he's not interested, just leave him and move on to the next prospect.

10: Listen to what people are saying. Do a short, concise presentation and then ask questions. Find out what the company wants to do, and why, and listen.

11: Always follow up. Whatever you do. If you've said you'd do something then do it. Sales people can be seen as lazy, so this is a golden opportunity to put yourself ahead of the heard. Be efficient, responsive and professional and you'll be on their short list in no time.

And finally: be persistent. You might not always get through the first time. And most of all stay positive. People can hear how you're feeling in your voice. Smile at them when you speak and let them know that you're a happy person that it would be a pleasure to do business with.

Seven Strategies for Success

by Henry Gibson

Seven Strategies for Success By Henry Gibson

I won't mess around with a long introduction here as I'm eager to get straight to the point. I have come across seven strategies which, effectively, take existing resources and apply them in new ways. You can do these things within your own business, or by using what already exists in another business - either way you can profit.

1: Any form of expertise can be transformed into profitable training. Inside every company's employees is a wealth of knowledge and expertise that goes untapped. Whilst at one high-tech firm selling networking equipment, I quickly realised that customers desperately needed to know what the company's support staff knew - that is why they were calling support. I knew of another company which had more experience of this than any other in the country. So, along with this company I assembled a training program which we sold to our customers for $1500 a head.

Every $1 spent mailing customers brought in $8 in sales. Before the company did this we were not in any way in the training or seminar business, but the training provided an extra revenue stream for us on top of our own company sales.

2: Licence something that you already have (or do) to another company. Taking the above for example: once this training system was in place, we sold it to a major trade organisation who, in turn, sold it to their 300 member companies (with a commission paid to us, of course).

3: Tollgate joint ventures. If you are a consultant or freelancer who has friends who run a "real business", you can licence their knowledge to others and keep some commission for yourself. This is what is meant by Tollgate Joint Venture. The basic essence of this is that you make it easier for the parties on both sides. If you make anything easier for people they will love you (and pay you) for it.

4: Customer re-activation. I know a man who, whenever he wants to make the odd 40 grand, will work out a 'customer re-activation' strategy with a local company. All he does is take that company's old customer files and sends out mailings which get those people back in the door. His cut is 100% of their first purchase. This can be highly profitable if you do it for yourself, or for others.

5: Re-niching or sub-niching a product. For example; do you remember the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books? Well how about 'Chicken Soup for the Sales Executive', 'Chicken Soup for the Hotelier', 'Chicken Soup for the Motor Mechanic', you get the picture? The list is endless.

6: Selling leads for commission. Affiliate marketers and Google Cash guys do this for a living, but that's not the only place you can do this. For example; I know someone who asked the president of a major national company how much money it cost him to acquire a new customer. He said it cost him around $50,000 to get a new customer. My friend said, "What if I could get that down to £15,000?" He said "That would be great". After that it was just a matter of generating the leads.

My friend worked out that if it took 100 leads to get one customer, then a lead would be worth $150. He sent the company president an action plan which he signed and the deal was struck. In order to sell leads you only need to find out what one is worth. If you're good at marketing you can even get the lead for a lot less than it's worth to your customer.

7: Compete with yourself. All the experts will tell you not to do this, I say do it like mad! For example; most prevailing Google advertisers occupy not one, not two, but three or more positions on the search engine page. One is their main or original position, and the others emphasize different things; high levels of service, lowest price, quickest delivery time, etc. This hugely increases their market share.

If you can utilize one, or more, or preferably all - in, for example, a consultancy business - of these strategies you will find yourself not only constantly in demand, but also constantly in profit.
