If you want to be Interesting, be Interested

People communicate through various mediums. Talking is one of the best things there is about having associations. There are relationships with your family, friends and business associates. You would likely talk about different things to different people.

talk talk talk

If you have nothing to say, it is pretty hard to talk! Of course there is always ‘small talk’ for family – what the dog did – what the kids did, etc. Things will come to mind. With friends there are a few more topics that could be discussed including career and romance.

However if you need to write or communicate in some other way to the general public, business peers, etc. then it is probably a good idea for you to read something interesting that you can then later discuss. For example world news and unfortunately that may include extremely negative or problematic issues. Of course best to avoid ‘politics’ and ‘religion’ as they usually include conflict and confrontation. We don’t need too much of that.

However, ‘political correctness’ is the biggest threat to ‘freedom of speech’ that this country has ever experienced and it is a real danger. Next they will tell us what we should be thinking and we will be going out shopping for those tin foil hats so people can’t read our minds.

There is never any excuse to be cruel so right there that covers a lot. People do have the right to their opinion of course; but if it is hurtful in some way you might want to avoid mentioning it at all rather than to judge and thereby humiliate someone as well as yourself.

The point here though is when you have ‘writer’s block’. It is really not about writing. It is about not having any ideas. If you read the news, or a few words in a book, or even an advertisement on a cereal box you are likely to get some ideas. Stay interested in your surroundings so that you will have plenty of thoughts that come to mind that may create an interesting conversation.

Home Biz Start Up – Use Your Problems as a Punching Bag

We all agree we would rather ‘not make waves’ and have everything in our lives running as smoothly as possible. Almost like what they call ‘living on easy street’. However things can happen at any time to change that perception. Problems may arrive at any time that could impact your health, your family, your home, career, or finances.

roll with the punches
Of course it would be best for all concerned if there were none of these dramas. However, obviously we have to learn to ‘roll with the punches’ whenever they do. Depending on to what degree there are problems, we need to be prepared ahead of time as much as we can analyze and determine.

Sometimes people just need a challenge. Maybe it is just too much easy street that can become a rut. Once in a while, we need something to push us in order that we make some extra effort. Again it is hoped it is never anything serious.

… but did you know that for some people something extremely negative can really push them into a whole new realm of optimism? You would be very surprised how the ‘fight or flight’ instinct can come into play. There are a few different personalities that may be relevant here and each one may respond differently.

Here is a real simple example: If you are a positive person in general, and the problem is your home business. Maybe you notice that your sales are tanking. First you need to find out why and make some changes to your operations and/or budget (business operating account).

You jump right on it and manage to beat it – you may try several things until you see the trend has changed after a while. You keep on pounding it until you are ‘home free’. Good job!

The other type of person figures ‘oh well’ it’s no big deal the few dollars I ever made with this’. They just leave it as it is and let it sink deeper into a black hole. Eventually they terminate the program and/or the website. No big deal except you may have just eliminated a source of income that someday could have been substantial. Not to mention wasted any time or money you spent on it in the past.

Oh well it is only money that could have been yours.

Work at Home Alliances and Collaboration

For the most part people who work at home online to develop their business work alone. However there are other times for various reasons that you will hope for and find someone to work with you.

get together

This situation could arise because your sales are slacking off and you could really use a ‘joint venture’ with someone. A joint venture often can be as simple as giving someone the incentive to allow you to send your advertising to their list. You may offer them a percentage of sales that come through this arrangement.

Another example of a joint venture could be offering something tangible such as a discounted product or service when sales are generated directly from the response to the above mentioned eMail campaign. This can actually be worth some money in that you would keep the root cost and just omit the extra charges you may have been charging for this product.

Perhaps the most important alliance you can have is one where you really need to be rescued from obscurity. You need to step up. If you have built friendships and alliances when there was no agenda, people will not feel unduly exploited. Now there is an opportunity to propose collaborating on a project that may actually amount to ‘Join my program and I will join yours at a discount.’

So while you may be alone online or ‘home alone’ you should always be networking to build relationships. Aside of the pleasure and benefit of having real friendships maybe through Live Chat clients like Skype.com, business forums, and/or social networks, you may actually create your own network of like-minded people who work at home too.
