By Stephen Bucaro

This is an idea I've had for a while about a Web business. I don't know if it's a good idea - you berepparttar 117300 judge. You are free to use this idea because I won't haverepparttar 117301 time to use it myself.

Picture a Web site titled "Couch Potato Critic". The header displays a photo of you, laying on your sofa, bathing inrepparttar 117302 glow of your big screen TV, with a beer or pop can in one hand andrepparttar 117303 remote control inrepparttar 117304 other.

The Web site content is your articles criticizing TV shows and commercials. I'm not talking about critiques from an entertainment "expert", that's been done. I'm not talking about Hollywood gossip, that's been overdone. I'm talking aboutrepparttar 117305 opinions of "beer can Joe" or "soda pop Sally".

Who on earth would care aboutrepparttar 117306 opinions of beer can Joe or soda pop Sally? Advertisers and network executives, and anyone who is a TV junkie or can't get enough trivia about their favorite TV show.

The fact is advertisers and network executives pay a ton of money for demographics and studies trying to find out what beer can Joe and soda pop Sally are thinking. That's becauserepparttar 117307 majority ofrepparttar 117308 TV viewing audience hasrepparttar 117309 beer can Joe and soda pop Sally mentality. Beer can Joe and soda pop Sally arerepparttar 117310 people who purchase those products advertised in TV commercials.

On your Web site's "About" page, present your qualifications to be a TV critic: overweight college dropout with slightly below average IQ who spends 40 hours or more per week in a mental haze in front ofrepparttar 117311 TV set, occasionally nodding off. If a TV commercial can get it's message through to you, it's a marketing success.

This might be your findings: many TV commercials are too creative. After you've seenrepparttar 117312 commercial, you have no idea whatrepparttar 117313 product was! Every TV commercial should haverepparttar 117314 same pattern: show a sad person, presentrepparttar 117315 product or service, show person usingrepparttar 117316 product or service, show a happy person.

Reaching Dreams Part 2 - "To-Do" lists

Written by Kara Kelso

Why do you need a "To-Do" list? To reach your goals! Now how can a small daily exersize berepparttar key to reaching your goals? Let me explain:

If you have your goals in place, then you know what you want when you want it. But, if you don't have a plan on how to get their, your goals will never be reached inrepparttar 117297 proper time periods. So let's break this down a little further.

Look at your main, long term goal. Write down all ofrepparttar 117298 things that need to be done to achieve it. Next take a look at your short term goals. How many of those things one your list you just made need to be done in a month to achieve your short term goals? How many in a week? If you set your goals correctly, there should be no problems findingrepparttar 117299 time (and energy) to complete allrepparttar 117300 weekly tasks.
