Practical Spring-Cleaning Tips for Your Business

Practical Spring-Cleaning Tips for Your BusinessBy Dawn Berryman

Spring is officially here, at least on the calendar anyway. Are you ready? Have you been in a rut; have you thought about how you can project yourself and your business life forward this spring season? It’s easy to succumb to the winter blues and find yourself less motivated during the more drab weather months of the year. But, it’s just as easy to get yourself motivated and freshened up.

Here are a few tips on how to do just that.

1. Spring clean!

How does your home office space look? Cleaning it up and organizing can reinvigorate you and your energy. People tend to work better and more efficiently when they are doing so in a clean, organized space. Add some color, add some flowers and get your environment primed for success.

The same goes for your business and your to-do list. Evaluate what it is that you are hoping to accomplish in the next several months. Prioritize your list and remove the things that are weighing you down or holding you back. I find it easy to get distracted by the day-to-day details and lose sight of the bigger picture. Re-outlining your goals can help you refocus and get prepared for the busy season ahead. (more…)

15 Tips for Getting Hired, FastBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Finding a work at home job can be very time consuming. Not only do you have to weed through the scams and sift through the various job sites to find the opportunities, but you need to make sure that the job is a good fit. Add in time for networking, polishing your resume, and practicing your interviewing skills and you’re looking at 15 – 25 hours each week spent on job hunting tasks.

Want to speed up the process so that you can start making money quicker?

Here’s 15 simple career strategies that will get you noticed and hired fast!

1. Add a Case Study

What really influences us is finding a case study included in a resume or online application. Those candidates understood that when you’re looking for remote work you’re dealing with a trust issue. It is something the e-commerce industry struggled with for years. Their solution was the before/after photo or the customer testimonial. When you talk about and show results, you show you’re trustworthy and that you really know what you’re doing.

2. Cast a Wide Net

Let’s Move Follow-Up to the Top of Our Marketing Lists

Let’s Move Follow-Up to the Top of Our Marketing ListsBy Diana Schneidman

With few exceptions, the most important business work we self-employed women can carry out during our workday is to follow up on marketing leads.

Marketing is the lifeblood of our businesses. When we quit marketing, we jeopardize everything we have built.

If we are busy . . . or at least have a single demanding project that chains us to our desks . . . it is easy to put off marketing.

However, one day that assignment will be done. We will instantly go from too busy to zilch.

At first the rest may feel blissful, but soon we will feel unsettling stress. Nothing to do can be worse than too much to do . . . especially when we depend on a stead inflow of cash.

Follow-up is the single most important type of marketing.

Even if we maintain some type of marketing effort, it’s not enough unless we follow through on the leads we gather and the contacts we make.

Making the initial contact, but not following up is like running 25 miles in a marathon and not going the final mile. It’s like leaving clean laundry in the basket until it is too wrinkled to wear . . . so you return it to the washer and begin again. It’s like folding your card hand after you have been dealt a royal flush. (more…)

Tips for Beating the Winter Doldrums

Tips for Beating the Winter DoldrumsBy Christy Schutz

Whether it is a moody Mother Nature, that infamous shadow-seeing groundhog (aka, Punxsutawney Phil), or the work of the nose-nipping Jack Frost, this winter is starting to get old with a capital O for many of my fellow Work at Home Women. We can have a propensity for developing cabin fever on a good day, but, mix in a couple of feet of snow, frozen roads, and no school for the kiddos, and we are well on our way toward a full-blown case of the Winter Doldrums. I’ve decided to focus today’s post on some practical ways to avoid the Winter Blues.

Plan a Vacation

The first and easiest way to survive winter is to get the heck out of dodge. All you have to do is think like a bird and head South. I can make a shameless plug for my neck of the woods, Tampa Bay. Shed your parka, grab a swim suit and shorts, and head on down … we are expecting highs in the low 80’s today. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, there’s always an inexpensive cruise option to the Caribbean, a quick flight to Puerto Rico, or, if you have the means, an extravagant trip to Brazil or Fiji. Bottom line is, a change of scenery can be the best medicine for that weather report promising another deluge of snow.

Get Some Vitamin D

According to research, over 40% of American adults are not getting enough vitamin D. This is concerning because a lack of vitamin D has been linked to depression, heart disease, increased rates of cancer, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, Alzheimers and a partridge in a pear tree. (more…)
