How Do I Implement The Lease Purchase Plan?Written by Sue and Chuck DeFiore
Well, as we have discussed in previous newsletters first you have to set up goals for yourself, both long term and short term. Donít forget these goals define how your business is run. They will determine what you do on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. The best way to do this is to picture yourself a year down road. Close your eyes and get a mental picture of where you want to be, what you want to have, how you want to look, then open your eyes and write all that down on paper or speak into a voice recorder.
First determine how much time you will have to work on your business. If you are starting part time or spare time and think you might have 5-7 hours per week, in reality you probably will have 2.5 to 3.5 hours per week. Whenever we ask a partnering student how much time they have I always cut time they give me in half. Why? Well because things come up, such as children, obligations, illnesses, their other job, etc. So rather than kid yourself and set yourself up for failure before you even start, be realistic with amount of time you will have.
Once you have determined how much time you have, make up a 12 month plan. For example if you only have 3 hours per week to work, that means in a 4 week month you have 12 hours. So realistically, first month is going to be getting yourself set up. Getting your identity package done, your template letters done, your database set, your telephone script done, your research (networking, FSBO sites). You want to start collecting newspapers (remember 5 weeks and older). Your second month would be going through newspapers, and going on line to those FSBO sites and collecting numbers. During end of second month (6 weeks after

By Stephen Bucaro
Everybody loves to find free clip art on Web. Some people are clip art addicts. They must have every bit of clip art they can find, purchase, or swipe. Other people will search for days for specific piece of clip art they need. There used to be a lot of good free clip art on Web. Now most clip art sites require you to pay.
Free clip art sites have most valuable asset on Web. No - not clip art itself, but tremendous amount of traffic these sites attract. Traffic is often referred to as "eyeballs" by Web marketers. First you have to figure out what kinds of products and services those eyeballs might be interested in. Then you have to join affiliate programs that will pay you a commission when someone purchases from an ad on your Web site.
What kinds of products and services are clip art seekers interested in?
Obviously they are seeking clip art to use on their Web page or print publication, so they are definitely interested in graphic design and Web publishing software. Here are some other things they might be interested in:
- Image and clip art libraries - Computer and printer products - Web services such as Web hosting - Anything that general audiences are interested in
=> You can also sell all clip art from your own Web site on a CD. Owning CD makes it much faster and easier for your customer to use clip art.
Where do you get clip art for your free clip art site?
You can't sell or give away copyright protected clip art, but you can find millions of public domain clip art images on Web. You could also find an artist who is willing to sell you, for a low per-image price, non-exclusive rights to a collection of images. Offer to do scanning and Web preparation yourself. A good cartoonist can bang out a clip art type drawings in less than one minute apiece.
I recommend that you draw your own clip art. This is not as difficult as you might think, because cute, amateurish, funny-looking clip art is very popular today. The subject of clip art is more important than its artistic quality. Business related cartoon clip art is most popular subject, except just before a holiday when holiday clip art becomes more popular.
