Home Business Issues – Would You Knowingly Do Business With a Flake?

Seriously if you had advance knowledge that one of your peers or vendors had credibility issues would you proceed to do business with them? By credibility there are degrees that range from just not being on time for deadlines to more serious issues like not paying debts or repeatedly not delivering on promises.

keep straight
Note that word ‘repeatedly’ – stuff does happen once in a while. We are all human and things can transpire that are actually beyond our control. So don’t make snap judgments – cut people some slack. However if it becomes a pattern where there are frequently issues that are inconvenient to you, then you should really start reconsidering your decision to work with this person or company.

Remember the saying ‘birds of a feather flock together’. Even if you are reasonably straight in your business transactions, if you associate with people who have credibility issues you may be considered as one in the same. People may wonder if they can trust you either.

Again it can happen to anyone that we join a program that tanks or worse has some legal issues that end up costing people. If nothing else, the fact that this can happen to perfectly innocent people should tell us that we need to do some research before we join a program. We should also keep checking periodically for any indications that there may be trouble coming.

You know the saying ‘if it sounds too good to be true it probably is’. Really apply some logic and read up on the various infamous scams. Ask yourself – does this sound like that? If yes, you probably don’t want to get involved. Do consider however, that a small detail may make it different, so you should ask the company directly if you have any doubt either way.

Not saying believe every rumor but you as an intelligent adult should be able to tell the difference between some wild rumor and several comments or reviews which seem to be pointing to the same direction. You can choose to hang in there and see what actually happens, and risk losing a little money on the opportunity should it be the worst case scenario; or you can take your money and go before it comes down to that.

Working at Home – Escape from Your Computer

All dedicated computer users probably understand what it is like to be really engrossed in whatever computer activity we might be involved in and unable or unwilling to stop even momentarily. However it is important to understand how seriously unhealthy it is not to get up regularly to rest the pressure that is being put on your entire skeletal system.

You really need to get your circulation going by moving around. This can take the form of short walks around your house, or some type of stretching exercise. It doesn’t have to be longer than a few minutes every hour or two but should definitely not be ignored.

At the same time you should be aware that your eyes need to rest as well. There is one exercise that involves looking at something as far away as possible (out a window for example). Focus on that for a few minutes. Your eyes will not be stuck at whatever distance is between you and your computer monitor. You can also alternate this with just closing your eyes for a few minutes to rest them.

None of these suggestions are remotely close to ‘slacking’ – they are necessary to maintain your good health. Look at it like if you were in too much back pain to work. Your neck is stiff, your lower back is painful, and you are not able to stand it after a while and must take time off to recuperate. This represents lost productivity and consequently income in addition to ruining your health.

If you do abuse your spine, one thing that is very effective and much healthier than pain pills or even OTC pain remedies is to get an ice pack – Ideally one of those that usually has a blue gel and is reusable indefinitely. It lives in your freezer and you take it out and use it for not more than 20-minutes on the same spot off and on.

Three more tips you should be aware of to alleviate some of the strain on your lower back that comes from too much sitting, etc., are as follows:

#1 Employ some sort of a footstool (a phone book works). You will feel right away how you are more comfortable not straining;

#2 Be sure that your computer keyboard and mouse are exactly in a straight line with your hands. This means no reaching up or down and straining your wrist and neck;

#3 Your monitor should be exactly at eye level – again this is no straining to look up or down. It should naturally be straight ahead.

If you want further information – just Google ‘ergonomics’.

Does Extra Money Sound Like a Good Thing?

To most people it would. There always seems to be something extra we need. If we are living paycheck to paycheck then there are likely things we cannot afford to buy and we just have to learn to live without them.


born to shop!
Then again, why should we have to? There are a number of things you can do to create more income just working at it part-time from home. Of course there are other options such as a part-time job but this is really gnarly. You must rush from one job to the next considering your commute time and start and end time for both positions.

You may end up eating dinner in your car as you drive from one job to the other. Once again you were not able to see your family as by the time you get home they will be sleeping. Obviously if you think about having a part-time home business to earn extra money, it is a whole lot more pleasant and relaxed than the above scenario.

You can take your time coming home from your day job and settling in. You can visit with your family and have a nice relaxing dinner. Whenever you are ready, you can go and boot up your computer. You can now focus on developing your source of extra income, your part-time home business. It is up to you if you have the energy to put in several hours or just more or less check in and make sure everything is running right.

There are many things you can do online to earn money. Easiest and fastest would be joining an affiliate program where they supply everything you need to get set up and running. All you have to do is marketing and advertising online to promote the business and eventually earn commissions.

There are also other things you can do that also involve advertising – for example becoming a reseller for a product where the company does ‘drop-shipping’ straight from your order to the customer.

Other examples are providing a service for other home businesses – maybe technical, maybe office services. There are lots of ideas for you to consider that cost very little to implement.
