Tips for Managing A Home-Based Business

Running a business from home is a tricky thing because, on one hand, you have decided to work from home for the flexibility; while on the other hand, everyone (including you, sometimes) seems to think working from home means a vacation with a computer. Taking advantage of the flexibility of working at home does not mean that you must answer to everyone’s beck and call, or be distracted by each little thing. This is easy to say, but hard to do when you are in the moment. At the moment, if the phone rings and you must choose between finishing a business-related email or answering the phone, the phone may seem more pressing. In order to increase your productivity, it is important to run your business like a business, and not like a hobby that you do after rolling out of bed.

First of all, do away with wearing pajamas to work. Whoever said that what you wear doesn’t matter is a lie. What you wear reflects the way you are feeling, to a large extent. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should wear a suit around your house – unless, of course, your clients are coming to your home office for appointments. It just means that, by wearing your pajamas and sweat pants all the time you will not feel as though you are really in the mood to put forward your most productive self. Shower in the morning, put on some clothes that do not have jumping sheep on them, and sit down at your desk feeling like a professional.

Next, think about the time you do your work as a schedule that you need to plan out. If you find that you are planning your work around doing everyone else’s dirty work, then you are not dedicating yourself to your job. Your schedule should include the time you get up, when you will start working, and when you will take your breaks. Make sure that the time scheduled for work is fairly uninterrupted. This may mean investing in a second phone line, and moving your home office away from the television or other parts of the house where you may be distracted.

Make sure that the people you are committed to understand that you are on a schedule. If someone calls to ask you out to a leisurely lunch, think first about whether or not you would be able to do this if you were working a regular job. Scheduling leisure time on schedule days off means that you are putting time and effort into your work, and this will be reflected in your income.

What Makes a 2KHero?

What is a 2Khero? Or, better, what makes a hero? We all know about the Hollywood heroes … they rush into trouble to save those they love. They risk their lives for others and sometimes lose their own.

Jamie Jarboe  Is self-sacrifice in the face of mortal danger our guide? If so, there are hundreds of thousands of heroes in our military. In fact, just being a soldier, Marine, sailor or in the Air Force would make one a hero. I should add the Coast Guard as well. Maybe that’s the way it should be.

Veterans Need Employment Help – please donate today…

You’d think a Veteran would have it easy coming home from fighting for the USA in foreign lands.  We see people standing and applauding when they come off airplanes and home to their loved ones… We see people offering them seats on planes, buses, trains and think, “Yea, they are being well taken care of.”

Yet, a Veteran has a tough time finding work.  Yup, we see businesses saying they hire Vets, but the hard truth is that many Vets are unemployed because they just don’t fit into the traditional scenario.

sad veteran  Imagine being a man of 22 who has just come back from a Tour of Duty in charge of $20 million dollar equipment and a team of 10 men, leading them into a battle and surviving with only 3 of his team.  Imagine what he is thinking… Imagine trying to get a job and not being qualified to be a manager of a fast food restaurant.  How would you feel?

Sometimes as business owners we don’t understand just what the Hire A Vet really means in today’s world. And sometimes we are just plain scared to hire a vet!

2KonnecKares saw this problem and came up with a solution that helps Veterans and Businessmen alike. Let the Veteran earn an income where he is safe and comfortable.  Learning to be back in the USA where he is safe and secure from terrorists and the threat of life or death situations and still be able to work in a safe and secure place is far better than being without a job and feeling useless and unwanted.  I get that we are not 100% safe in the USA, but it sure beats being in Afghanistan or Iraq right now… and being able to work and taking care of his family is far better to his mental and emotional security too.

You can sponsor an Unemployed Veteran by donating $250 at www.PayPal.com/Send  use this email address… donate@2KonnectKares.org to send a donation.  The $250 will scholarship a HERO for 4 months to help him/her start a Home Based Business and make it profitable from the first month. The Veteran and use the scholarship to grow their business so they earn enough to pay bills and put food on the table.

Please help… donate right now… before you forget…  Thanks!

How Do I Look for a Job When I Can’t Afford Gas?

By Jackie

The job I lost

Hello. My name is Jackie and it’s been 1 1/2 yrs that I’ve been without work. My job closed on me unexpectedly and I’ve been looking for work every since then. Now my unemployment has been exhausted, there’s no money to pay something on bills and my rent is due. I need food on the table as well. Now without money coming in to put gas in my car, how do I go out and look for a job???  This is a no win situation!

What it’s like being unemployed

downes couch web Being without work is such a terrible thing , you have lost your sense of security. The family is depending on you and you can’t provide when you’ve been the backbone that supported them! You feel like you have let everyone down and you lose a part of your identity.

Bitter and Stressed Out by Unemployment

I wonder if you can feel the heartache and frustration in this veterans story?

Editor

The job I lost

I lost my sales job. It was bogus in the first place but I first left because it was so bad and then they wanted me to return. I did, but then I was basically given my last check.

What a joke, to say the least.

homeless-woman-in-barrio-triste-medellin What it’s like being unemployed

It has been the roughest times in my life to be unemployed right now. Everything is so hard and I don’t know who to reach out to at this point. It seems like every job that I get doesn’t last and isn’t working for me.

It’s rough and miserable. I don’t have money to do anything life is hard and cold it seems. I’ve never had this problem before in my life and I’ve never felt so bitter and stressed out before in my life.

Advice

  • I don’t have advice right now, to be honest. Sell drugs? I think that earns people a lot of cash and I’ve been considering it.
  • I think that would be the best option, not hardly but I’m actually considering it.
  • Honolulu really is a twisted city. In the long run you see it and realize how cruel and sick people are, counting myself at one time. There’s hatred and racist garbage that always makes things worse.

What is the Veteran’s HERO Scholarship Program?

Click on the link to the right to donate… Thank you…

The Veteran’s HERO Scholarship Program is one where 2KonnectKares is gathering funds together to implement a working program that helps a Veteran  who is unable to get a job because of health or disabilities issues, or is someone who has tried to find work and does not have the skills needed to secure a job other than menial labor or someone who isn’t making the income needed to provide even the basic necessities for him/herself or their family, make enough money monthly to support themselves financially.

The problem?  Lack of ability, lack of skill, lack of education, lack of opportunity, lack of trust.

It’s a growing problem, over 1 million veterans are impacted and 2KonnectKares has identified a solution that will help them get up on their feet  financiallState Unemploymenty with a stable monthly income, by opening up ability options, training, education, opportunity and  believing in them enough to reach out and help.

 2KonnectKares has made alliances with many Home Based Businesses that are working together to start  a personal business for the Veteran, train and teach them how to manage their business and then help that  business get to a point of making enough money to maintain itself into the future.  Within 3 months the  Veteran then has a source of income that is stable, sustainable and growable to whatever level they choose to  take it.

This is not charity… this is not a handout… this is a hand up, a scholarship, a helping hand, a way to learnveteran-hire-me

some new skills and start a new career that will provide for them and their families for the rest of their lives.

No other Veteran support program implemented has taken on a task of this magnitude or this direct to the Veteran him/herself to provide an immediate employment solution.

This requires a huge investment in time and money to make it work, from people like you and me.  It’s taking the Veteran back to learning, helping them start a new business venture and then training them to be successful in their new career.

We are asking anyone and everyone who has ever been blessed by the defense of the Military Veteran to consider helping with this cause.  We ask that you donate some money to give back to those who have served us and who are struggling to get a job and live a normal, productive life as an honorable citizen of the USA.

Please donate something, anything today…   It is greatly appreciated…  and will be put to work to help a Veteran start a new career so they can provide for themselves.

God bless the USA Veteran!
