Dedicated to Women

feng shui

I know most women love Feng Shui. Surely, there are men who like this discipline too. But I didn't. May be I am too sceptical about such things that I do not believe in them. However, I would like to share one interesting appeal with you. My wife tells it is helpful :) You can test by yourself.

Light's Treasures

Fortuna! Goddess of Supply
Of all God's wealth from realms on high
Release thy treasures from the Sun
And now bestow on everyone

Whose heart beats one with God's own light
The power to draw from heavens's height
Abundance to expand the plan
The masters hold for every man

Attune our consciousness with thee
Expand our vision now to see
That opulence is meant for all
Who look to God and make the call.

We now demand. We do command
Abundant manna from God's hand
That now below as is Above
All mankind shall express God's love!

Ten Steps to Getting Your Business Off the Ground

  1. Start right now. Begin by skimming magazines and newspapers for business ideas. Think about the environment you want to work in, the types of people you want to be around, and your ideal work day.
  2. Think about what you do best. Sit down, relax, and make a list of interests, hobbies, and skills that you really enjoy. It will help you to be successful in future.
  3. Ask friends for ideas.
  4. Look through web resources. Start at Google, and visit sites left and right -- to get ideas on how others are trying to make a living doing things that interest you.
  5. Look for inspiration everywhere. Check out books, ask the librarian about trade associations and journals where you can learn about trends, suppliers, colleagues, and competitors.
  6. Think about what you want from your business. Do you want it to stay small, or are you hoping for a full-time enterprise? How much income will be enough to keep you interested and motivated? Do you have the requisite skills? What’s the market outlook? How about the competition?
  7. Fine-tune your research. Maybe your hobby is knitting and you’d like to turn it into a business -- but how? That’s what you have to research next. Look in knitting magazines to see how others are making money. Visit yarn, craft, and specialty stores.
  8. Test the waters. Find out if there’s a market and if you enjoy the work before you spend a fortune or burn yourself out.
  9. Check your credit. If you do not have enough money to start a business and your FICO score is good or excellent, consider business credit cards that can help you to start today.
  10. Start out on the right foot. Make a few phone calls to save yourself a lot of grief:
  • Call the IRS (800-829-1040) to see if you need a federal tax ID number.
  • Call your county clerk and state sales tax department to see if you need to deal with things like zoning, licenses, sales tax, and permits.
  • Verify that your insurance policy will cover the equipment you’ll use in your business and any additional liability you might face should a client slip in your driveway.
  • To save money and reduce the risk of an audit, use a good tax advisor recommended by others who have small businesses of their own. Ask specifically about deductions for: office space, equipment, inventory, supplies, utilities, travel, and publications.

First Step

Planning to start earning money, take your time! First of all, you need to find a good teacher. That is not the case that you cannot reckon on yourself. The real reason is different.
You may have as many teachers as you need, in those fields where you are going to work. Look for the one who goldenly acts a part you would like to act too. The one who engages in such business you work for. Firstly, simply try to imitate. Most successful people will help you with great relish! Remember, those who grew rich by fair means are really ready to help you to develop.

Time Has Come for Action

All of us have to deal with money every day. I like a proverb: Money makes the world go around. Even if we do not want to depend on finances, we all are in the great business.
Most people work much to be in tall cotton but in fact, they can't manage their finances wisely and so run round like headless chickens.
According to statistics from New York State Department of Health, by 65 years from every 100 people:
  • 37 have died
  • 53 have been living being in need of family or government sponsoring
  • 5 have been working still, as there are no two ways about it
  • 4 have become well-fixed and withdrawn from business
  • 1 has grown rich
Please, think of these figure.

I'm Back

Life's like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get. It is long since I wrote my first post. Although I was going to be here regularly. I have just come from Germany where my daughter lives. I spent two wonderful months with my little Janny and her children. Heh, time has come for working. So, I will write about finances for you. Ok, tomorrow :)
