Why do I publish thee? By Linda Landry
Creating and publishing an electronic newsletter has been an experience. I still do not think I have it down pat, yet, but I do believe I am making progress. There have been so many scares within last year about sp'am, filters, and pay to send. It is enough to make anyone with half a brain QUIT. Well, I haven't quit, so I either have more than half a brain, or less. Please, no comments from peanut gallery! :~)
Seriously, publishing a 'zine has it's rewards. I have found that it has afforded me opportunity to establish an online connection with some great people who would have otherwise remained anonymous to me. There are obviously some very sincere and giving people who are using their computer to establish themselves in a business at home. I am glad to be counted in that number.
Working at home is ideal situation for many today. Establishing an office steps away from kitchen, laundry and kids is so convenient. Taking into consideration overhead felt by commuters, and brick and mortar establishments, we realize that home biz is smart. The added tax advantage, call it a shelter, is so beneficial when you consider cost of housing is your biggest expense.
So that is why I publish a 'zine! For all net 'marketeers' who seek an affordable media to promote their online opps. We are all in this together and unless YOU are listed in top ten on search engines, you need to market your wares or biz opps. Electronic newsletters allow you to do this at minimal cost, which by way is tax deductible.
Changing Your Mind About ChangeWritten by C.L.Hanna
Change is inevitable...so why is it something so many of us avoid?
Spring is only weeks away and as everything around us outdoors becomes ‘new' and colorful again, many of us begin to desire same effect on everything aound us indoors, as well. There's just something about a fresh coat of paint, folds of new fabric on windows, or even a different arrangement of furniture, that can renew our spirits. Change can be like a breath of Spring! While change, of any kind, can be harder for some personality types than others, change is usually a good thing - for all of us. Change can offer us a different perspective, a new attitude, even a new purpose. So what keeps us from changing kitchen wall color, or placement of living room sofa? After all, it's not like changing careers, or color of our hair...in fact, changing one's hair color can actually be an easier decision for some than moving of T.V.! But why?
Perhaps, fear of change inside our homes comes from threat to our comfort zones.
You rely on your hairdresser to give you a professional opinion on hair color and hair style; maybe even refusing to give you what you want. Just because you saw a certain hair color or style on your favorite movie-star - that doesn't mean that it would be right for you. But, when it comes to choosing color palette for your dining room or perfect accents for new bedroom...it can be equally scary without someone you trust to steer you in right direction.
