Never Give UP !

Posted on Updated on

When you are inspired and passionate about something such as running your own business, there will be many positive and negative aspects of running your own business. You will get how much is that going to cost you, how much will you make and that is a waste of time.

Personally, I have had many of people tell me to just give the business up and don’t worry about going back to work, however,  sometimes, I feel like giving up and not bothering about it, but every time I have thought about giving up in some weird way the universe seems to send me clients, just like saying ” DO not give up on your dream of a successful business.”

Although I always say to myself this may be a small business for now it may eventually turn into a something much bigger  which for now enables me to maintain my office skills that I have studied learnt over many years.

Being an optimist, I feel that I need to have those skills in case something may happen to the main breadwinner, being my husband.

In this way I have skills I need to get back to any part-time/temp work in the future. But my hope is to make my business a full-time entity from home and be able to provide things for my children should anything adverse happen to my husband, so my main point in this blog is not to give up your dream of the running of your business even if you do constantly receive  negativity from those who are pessimist.

The other part I would also recommend is:

  • Write down what skills you have a piece of paper;
  • Do your research on whether the business would be viable;
  • What cost you would need to buy the equipment you may need and write what equipment you already have;
  • Is your business is going to be a hobby or full-time business;  and
  • What are the pros and cons of each set of skills that you will need to work from home.

Paid or Free Advertising Worth It !

Quote Posted on

Many have paid for advertising their business, is it worth paying to promote the business. As you may be aware I do own and operate a Virtual Assistant Business at first, I paid for advertising through many avenues but found out that it becomes costly and most of the profit was paid into them which left me nothing in the bank. I found out advertising for myself was the best thing do, I am also part of the Virtual Assistant group only something I do pay for, but most of the other advertising has become with advertising flyers, and the best one was many clients the had referred me to other possible clients due to exceptional work. You can advertise either by paid or free.
The places that I have used free are
  • supermarkets billboard,
  • Facebook
  • linked-in,
  • twitter,
  • flyers in letterboxes,
  • handed flyers to business in person and a couple of others.
Best advertisement I have found which has been very useful is word of mouth. Other places you may find handy are as follows:

 The conclusion is that if you have the money to spare, make sure you can afford to pay the fees for the paid advertising and if you are just starting out, the best way is to start doing free advertising until you can afford to get someone else to advertise for you. 

Thanks for reading my blog, please leave feedback or information you feel I should add to some of my blogs.

OPINION BLOG

Posted on

I was sitting with my spouse of 6 years of thinking what to blog about next and he asked what a Blog was?

WHAT IS A BLOG

A blog is something you have an interest in and prefer to write about to anyone who may be interested in the subject you like writing about. It could be something like a good Novel, Law, life, Love horoscope, mythical creatures.

When I explained what a Blog was to my partner he was surprised and said that he would love to own a blog such as an Opinion Blog for everyone who like to add opinions about anything. I thought it be a great Idea. But he said he doesn’t have the time to blog about things and I said I can do that for him.

So please feel free to blog about anything on the comment section, as we might be able help you.
