Don't Let Excessive Stress Ruin Your Business

Don't Let Excessive Stress Ruin Your BusinessWe all have stresses and a little stress is good for you, but at the other end of the scale too much stress is definitely something that should try to be avoided. There needs to be a balance between work and life, something that many people just ignore. With ignorance of the stressed out individuals eventually become incapable of working effectively and the business suffers.

How can you overcome getting too stressed out? A good starting point is to just sit back for one moment and look at yourself, if you can’t do it then get a trusted friend of one of your family to give their honest opinion on where they feel that you are under too much stress. They will know better than you and their valued opinion can then be taken as gospel and positive action can then be taken.

If the consensus is that you are over stressed then a good next step is to contact professional stress management professionals like the The Stress Institute who are there as a non-profit making organisation under the helm of Dr Kathleen Hall an expert and world renown authority on stress and work–life equilibrium. A program can be recommended to you to reduce and control the way you live giving your health a fighting chance in this tough world.

Business suffers if you do from the excesses of stress and without stress management and adjustments to your lifestyle it won’t only be your business that will suffer, but you and your family, which is far more important.

Make Money From Pets

Small, brindle-marked dog posed on table in studio

Pets are great, but did you know that you can make lots of money out of them and you don’t necessarily have to own one?

There are various way of earning money from pets let’s go through the options that are plentiful and abound here. Don’t forget, most people own pets ranging from a goldfish to a python. The basic requirement is the love of animals.

You can become a breeder specialising in pure breed animals that people are prepared to pay lots of money for. It needs a little investment obviously for housing and breeding stock. However once set up lots of money can be made this way. Once you are known in breeding circles there would not be that much advertising needed either.

Grooming animals is something that pet owners need and you could be earning up to £100 an hour depending on what services you offer. You will need to be qualified, but there are many animal-grooming courses throughout the country that you can take up and get certified. Be sure there is lots of work waiting for you once qualified. Just like hairdressers, hair and fur never stops growing so there will always be demand.

Walking dogs is another area where you can earn up to £20 an hour. You just need transport to get to the do and back home and this can be part of the fees that you charge your clients. A simple ad in local shops and local networking will get you business.

People go away on holiday but can’t or don’t want to take their pets. That’s another earner as a pet sitter. It is easy money but you need to ensure that you know the pets’ requirements. Many pet owners prefer a pet sitter rather than putting their pets in a home.

A pet taxi ins another area that you can make money from. A trip to the vet may be difficult for a pensioner or someone who hasn’t’ got the transport. I know it just sounds like a taxi service, but you don’t need a licence for this and if you advertise a specialist pet chauffer you will get the business. You obviously need to have the right type of transport though, but you will charge above normal taxi service rates.

One last point:
If you do take any of these opportunities, make sure you get at least third party insurance cover.

Direct TV - It Makes Good Business Sense

2-D logo.

Does your business have television for your personal use for visitors in the waiting area or for you your employees in the canteen? If so, look at the cost and what you get, you could save money and get a better service at the same time.

Direct tv can give 100% digital programming with the assurance that they are the leading provider of HD programming. They are focussed on giving the customers the best possible service.

There are a range of choices available in programming, pricing and packages starting from £29.99 per month. You are bound to get a better deal than your existing service from direct tv.

They can also provide this service and packages to private homes, in fact ~I am looking right now at what I can save on my currently cable contract and may well take up a better offer from them and get a free HD DVR receiver upgrade. Also they have a bonus of going green and saving another £5 per month.

The last mention is that they have a higher customer satisfaction than cable according to a survey made in 2007. That is another assurance that your business might consider.

Adgitize - More Traffic and Earnings For Little Work

Adgitize - More Traffic and Earnings For Little WorkThe more I look at Adgitize, the more impressed I am at the moneymaking and publicity it can get for bloggers. I have written about Adgitize before and am compelled to write again as I have now on the money trail as an advertiser with them.

I paid $14 for a month of advertising with Adgitize, which earns me 100 points a day. I blog each day and that earns me another 100 points. I will get clicks from other bloggers who see my ads on other blogger sites and that will roll in more point. And finally I check daily to see my point credit and if not quite up to the 300 point mark I just click on other Adgitize widgets at the same time as I drop on Entrecard to run to the 300 mark.

If I earn 300 points a day for a month my income will not only cover the £14 of advertising fees but go well beyond this figure giving a nice ripe bunch of dollars for very little work indeed. It is so easy and already after just three days being an advertiser my hits on my blog have gone from 20 to nearly 150 daily!

Anyone who is a blogger and haven’t joined Adgitize should seriously consider it as it is a guaranteed earner and one of the best out there. It far outweighs many other schemes and Ken Brown looks after their members very well indeed.

New Package On Offer From Entrecard

New Package On Offer From EntrecardIf you are an Entrecard member there is a new package just out. Graham Langdon the Top Dog of Entrecard has personally contacted all Entrecard members with the details.

Now this really is a profit making enterprise and I know that many will take this offer up as it seems a major boost to traffic and publicity to those who really want it, but is does encourage business bloggers rather than bloggers who don't do it for making money. Well business is business I suppose and you take the choice.

Many business bloggers will find this attractive and a positive step in their field, but to others this will seem like another betrayal of blogging principles.

Here are the details:

* $250 credit to the Enrecard Ad Network. This buys you 416,000 impressions across every blog in the system.

* 10,000 Entrecard credits (a $56 value if you bought them directly from them)

* A link to your blog on the Entrecard Dashboard for 1 week.

* Your 125x125 ad on the Entrecard Blog for one month (a $250 value)

* Your blog in the "Sponsor Forum"

The "Sponsor Forum" is to be the newest addition to the Entrecard Forums. It will act just like the announcement forum in that the posts are static and people can't reply. This section will have a link to your blog and a description of it, and it will stay in the "Sponsor Forum" for one month.

This is all for $250.
It is open to the first ten people. Payment by paypal $250 to and they will set you up.

Sounds a good deal if you are looking for a major push in your popularity, but too expensive for most who blog on a shoestring.

More Money From Adgitize

Adgitize has paid me more money again for April. It is an increase on the March payment and I have done absolutely nothing other than sit back and watch my Pay Pal account balance increase. I did an article on Adgitize and how easy it is to earn from them last month and what I wrote there still very much stands true. You might want to refresh your memory to see what I wrote:

Here are my earning from Adgitize for April.

Payment details
Amount: $13.10 USD
Transaction Date: May 6, 2009

Subject: Adgitize Publisher Payment April 2009

Again, I have not done anything, other than signing up and initially added my Adgitize widget up and my normal regular blogging. There is the option to work a bit more on Adgitize like clicking on the sponsored widgets, actively promoting through an affiliate program. The money that would be earned from this should be substantially higher.

I would recommend Adgitize to all bloggers who have a spare 125x125 widget space to be used up, and if you haven't, make space!

It only takes a couple of minutes to sign up to get up and running and of course you get more traffic with your ad widget on other Adgitize members. The link here will take you into the money and traffic generating zone and by the way Ken Brown the chief in charge is a nice chap!

Your Online Signature Is Your Business Card

Business Cards VincoDevelopments

Everytime you contact someone, make the most of your signature. Your signature is your online business card - Use it. Everyday millions of emails and online messages are passed backwards and forwards - This is an ideal way of getting free publicity online and sat the end of the day is just a matter of common sense.

It amazes me how many people just don't bother to look at this angle considering it only take a few minutes to set up and will automatically be sent every time you communicate thereon. Online business is all about getting noticed and having your name, email, website or weblog in front of a waiting public and this is an ideal way to do it.

All the main email guys such as Google, Yahoo, MSN/Hotmail etc. have this facility, but why just put your name and website? You can put a little text advertisement alongside this as well, even images that will draw attention each time. If you're not using this free publicity then think about doing it now. It really could make a big difference to the feedback you get, it really is just like leaving an online business card to everyone you communicate to.
