Most Useful Tips for Balancing Work and HomeMost people understand how difficult it can be to balance their work and home lives once they get married and have children. Somehow it seems that work life or home life is always encroaching on the other and causing problems at work, at home, and many times both. However the following five tips are great options to help with balancing work and home.Make a ScheduleThe best thing to do when trying to balance work and home is to make a schedule. Know how much time you have and schedule your work time and your home time. Then, you will know when you need to schedule work and home events. This will make your life significantly easier and you will know which activities fit into which time frame. Just make sure you stick to your schedule.Share ResponsibilitiesMany times work and home responsibilities can become overwhelming because one spouse is handling more of the responsibilities than the other. So, learn to share responsibilities at home and each spouse can be responsible for their work. Also, older children should have some home responsibilities as well to help parents balance work and home.Leave Work at WorkBalancing home and work can be difficult because it is so easy to take work home. If you really want to balance work and home then you will always leave work at work and keep home a sacred place for family and home activities.Dedicate Weekends to Home ActivitiesA great way to keep home and work separate is to always focus on home activities during weekends, or at least on days off from work if you happen to work on weekends. When certain days are home days and other days are work days then it makes balancing work and home considerably easier.PlanThe best way to balance work and home is to always make a plan. There are tons of tips that will help you, but there is nothing like making a plan and then following the plan to really balance work and home. It might be difficult, but if you have it planned out and follow the plan you will be surprised how easy you can find a balance.

CHOOSING A HOME BASED BUSINESS *

CHOOSING A HOME BASED BUSINESS *

by Tom LaiosPosted in Money Magnet NewsBeware of the Fluff. They seem like great companies, they have a good sales pitch and their compensation plan looks good too. They have big corporate offices and have been around for years. Isnt that good? Any company out there that sells products like lotions, potions, pills, miracle juices or miracle gas saving products usually doesnt work for the average person for many reasons.Those companies usually make most of their money from you, the distributor, not from selling the products. They have you on auto ship, so you are their income.They only pay about 2% to 15% so many levels deep. They will tell you that when you fill the matrix, you wont have to do anything and youll be making 20 to 40k a month. The truth is, there are so many loop holes to their compensation plans that no body ever reaches those levels. You either will have too many people on your left, but not enough on your right side to make the higher level payouts. They tell you that you need more personal volume and your group volume is fine or vice versa, or my favorite, you had fallout this month, so you no longer qualify for that car bonus we promised you.They make you hold home parties to push your crap on your friends. Listen to me..If I wanted weight loss, Id go to GNC. If I wanted Lotions, Id go to CVS, Save on, Nordstrom or Bullocks. If I wanted to put additives in my gas tank, Id go to Kragen, Chief or Pep Boys and buy a product from STP or Penzoil. You get what I mean.? They are a copy cat company of the original company. How many companies out there are selling a juice that is based from the Acai Berry, Goji berry or the Mangosteen fruit? How many of those promise to cure cancer? What a joke? Is our society that ignorant that if something actually cured cancer, wouldnt we want to check it out? How many travel companies are there now? How many fuel additives are there now? How many of those have been shut down? How many make up, skin lotions and vitamin companies are there out there? It just seems like there is so many junk companies on the internet, how do you what is good and what is not? Some of these companies above actually have a good product, but I would never go in business with them. So, how do I choose a business that I can profit from and that I can be proud to represent?When I evaluate a company, I look for these key points. Keep in mind, when I join a company, my #1 goal is to make money and to do it legitimately. I do not want to hurt anyone or rip anyone off. This is what Ive learned and these guidelines will help you determine what company is right for you.If you are not making at least 75% of the upfront commission when you make a sale, forget it. This means that you are doing all the work and the company and/or the person above you is making all the money.If you have to have 1000, 10,000 or 20,000 people in your organization before you make any real money. DO NOT Join. Most people will NEVER get there.If they teach you to hold home parties and invite all your friends. Run away fast.If they have a sales pitch 2-3 times a day and only 2-3 training classes per week. This means that the company is more interested in selling you than training you.If you cant break even or get into profit with 3 sales, forget it.If you cant speak with the owners or the corporate office via phone or webinar, Forget it. I like to know who I am doing business with before I will do business with them.If it is a start up or in pre launch, forget it. The chances of these companies becoming the next Amway is about as good as winning the lottery. At least with the lottery, you have a chance to win once or twice a week. You might as well go to Vegas and blow your money on a good time. At least youll have some great memories, see a great show and have a great meal.These are not all the rules for success on the internet, but this is a great guideline to follow when evaluating an internet company.

Authentic Sports Memorabilia

Will you want to choose only one category to begin collecting your sports memorabilia? If so, learn it, research it, and invest in it wisely. Did you know that trading cards have to be graded? It's one of the important facts you would do well to know as a potential collector of authentic, valuable sports items.Collectibles fraud is a terrible thing for someone to endure. If you've been saving a special item or items for years, waiting on just the right moment to cash in on your investment, and one day you are forced to sell because life threw you a hard ball, you don't want to suffer the devastation of a fake collectible.Educate yourself, arm yourself with knowledge. Become a collector who doesn't just pretend to know the art of recognizing authentic sports memorabilia.If you encounter a dealer who doesn't answer your questions to your satisfaction, it's best to follow your instincts and go elsewhere. Dealer confidence is key, but don't confuse confidence with a con's suave evasions.Find out the worth of your items. It's not fair to you or to the dealer to purchase an item, then discover it's not quite as valuable as you had first thought, and try to hassle the dealer about a return. Do your homework before purchasing. An honest dealer will want you to be happy with your purchase so you can be proud to do business with them and spread their good name to build their reputation. A dishonest dealer just wants you to hurry up and spend your money and won't want to stand behind the authentication of their sports memorabilia. But by the same token, it's unfair to the dealer to go on with an attitude of "If I don't like it, I'll just return it." They want people who are serious about their sports memorabilia just as much as you want authenticity. It's best to leave, think it over, and return than to buy in haste. You may want to return to the same dealer in the future and should build a good interaction with him or her.Make sure you are clear on how rare an item is. Limited edition does not necessarily mean the same as limited production. Limited edition means one of a kind, limited production means only produced for a short period of time.A certificate of authenticity does not assure that you're in good hands with a dealer. Neither do the words 'mint condition'. There is such a thing as 'dealer bias'. It's one of the negative aspects of the business. You may later try to return to the same dealer and sell back the card they sold for a high price in 'mint condition' only to find they reduce the worth. They won't want to pay you what they said it was worth, even though they are the ones who set the price originally.You shouldn't have to allow the dealer to dictate which authentication service you can use. A reputable dealer will be fine with your choice. But do understand that authenticators may not specialize in the item you are having checked. If they don't excel in this area, you may be disappointed.
