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.

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!

2KonnectKares non-profit Announces:

There are many American Veterans that have come home from serving our country and can’t find work for numerous reasons.  Challenges with health, with trust, with the economy, with education, and others. Yet they are respectable citizens of this great nation and we want to honor them and help them succeed as fellow citizens, family and friends.

2KonnectKares has taken on the daunting task of helping to find employment for over 1 million veterans who are out of work, can’t find work and yet want to work and be respected citizens.  There are lots of people and corporations who are helping them with services and benefits but these men and women don’t want charity or handouts as much as they want to work and earn their way.  Respect, Honor, Tradition, Valor – these are what they want. 

2KonnectKares has created the Veterans HERO Scholarship Program to get them started on a home based business that they can participate in and have the respect of earning an income from multiple sources that will provide more than enough to support themselves without government handouts or welfare.

But, it takes a source of funds to get them started. 2KonnectKares is building that source of funds through Donations, Grants, Business Growth and Humanitarian Funds to be able to help start the Veterans HERO Scholarship Program as soon as possible. Our soft-launch date is June 1, 2015 but can be move up if we get the funds needed to get started.

2KonnectKares has 5 Home Based Businesses ready to implement this program immediately once funding is available. We need $1067 a month for 4 months for each veteran we get started to help them make enough to sustain the expenses for themselves and their family.. Then, through education and training, they learn to continue and build those businesses on their own into ongoing income each month.  We also have services to help them save some each month for future needs, retirement and emergency, just like any other family would with a steady, beneficial income.

We need your help.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.” and so many small donations make up the big amount of support we need to help as many veterans as we can become successful, employed citizens of this great country, honoring them to succeed where many are now failing to find the employment they need.

The Veterans HERO Scholarship Program has been touted as the best practical benefit program for the unemployed veterans that has ever been conceived and employed.  Please consider donating as much as you feel comfortable with and we will put every dollar to work for veterans all over the USA that need this program to survive with Respect, Honor, Integrity and Valor.

God Bless the USA Veteran!
