        2.     Home Business Idea of the Week - Wire Jewelry

        For this idea, I'm just going to refer you to a website that
        does WAY much more justice to this business idea than I
        could possibly match. In fact, I love this idea so much I'm
        going to give it a try myself!

        The site is Preston Reuther's Wire-Sculpture.com at
        . Here you will
        find everything you could possibly need or want to know
        about starting and running a home-based wire jewelry

        Preston is a master wire sculptor and teaches others his
        skills via a series of instructional videos. As Preston says,
        "you can learn to make gemstone and gold wire jewelry
        that sells anywhere. If you can bend a paper clip, I can
        train you to make $40,000 your first year in your home-
        based jewelry business. My easy to learn method will teach
        you all the tricks of the trade. You can start your home
        business with a few hand tools right from your kitchen

        3.     Feature Article:  The Moonlighting Time Crunch and How
          To Beat It

        © 2017 Elena Fawkner

        If you're in the paid workforce and toying with the idea of
        starting a home business so that one magic day you can
        tell your boss what you REALLY think of him or her, you
        have a rough patch to get through first.  The time crunch
        that comes with running your business on the side in your
        already non-existent spare time while you continue working
        in your job until the business is generating enough of an
        income to allow you to quit. 

        It's tough being a moonlighter, as many of you reading this
        know only too well. Here are some ideas to help you beat
        the time crunch.


        Before you can begin planning how to make the most
        effective use of your time, understand where it goes.
        An activity log is a good way of identifying black holes that
        can be turned into productive time. Keep a  log for a
        typical week. Just write down everything you do for that
        week. Be sure to include everything: getting ready for work,
        eating meals, taking breaks, travelling to and from work,
        grocery shopping, telephone calls, faxes, emails, casual
        chats, work activities, reading, making meals, watching
        TV, whatever.


        Your activity log will identify, in excruciating detail, exactly
        how much time you are squandering each week ... valuable
        time that you could be putting to productive use in a home
        business. You may find that you're spending 16 hours a
        week watching TV, for example. That's two whole business
        days right there.
        So identify those time wasters and kill them off. A time
        waster is any thing that doesn't make a worthwhile
        contribution (proportionate to the time you spend on it) to
        your work, your business or your personal wellbeing. If it
        doesn't make a contribution to one of these three areas,
        dump it or delegate it.

        ON THE JOB

        The more efficient you are on the job, the more easily you
        will be able to free up work time for business-related activities.
        You can't be too obvious about it, of course, but so long as
        you're on top of your work responsibilities, you can buy yourself
        some time to take care of some of your business-related

        Paradoxically, studies have shown that moonlighters who
        'cheat' by squeezing in business activities alongside their
        work activities are often more effective in their day jobs
        because they work harder than they normally would to keep
        from getting caught. One word of caution, though. It's
        generally a BAD idea to choose for your business something
        that competes with your employer's business. Such an
        arrangement is rife with conflicts.


        If you've followed the above steps, you should by now have
        a reasonably good idea of how much time you have available
        to you and what activities are going to serve your business,
        work and personal needs.

        Now it's time to schedule everything you need to accomplish.
        You may choose to do this on a daily, weekly or monthly basis,
        it's up to you. I recommend though that you start out by
        creating daily "to do" lists until you get used to the discipline
        of managing your time effectively.

        Make a list of everything you would like to accomplish today.
        This includes business, work and personal. Now prioritize those
        activities in order of necessity, importance and urgency. When
        thinking about priorities, make sure that if you run out of time
        today, what doesn't get done is something that can wait until

        In addition to scheduling your activities, allocate realistic
        time periods within which to complete them. By setting a time
        limit for these tasks, you will force yourself to lift your pace to
        get them done in the time alloted which in turn will force you to
        become more productive. It will also help you discipline yourself
        not to allow distractions to get in the way.

        When scheduling, work with your effectiveness level as much
        as you can. Schedule important tasks that require creativity
        and clear-thinking for your most alert period of the day.
        Routine or mundane tasks can be slotted into low energy/low
        concentration periods.

        Also, try and maintain and influence your energy levels with
        diet and rest. A high carbohydrate breakfast will keep the
        brain supplied with sugars for the early part of the day. But
        by mid-morning, you may experience a sugar slump so get
        into the habit of having a mid-morning snack to avoid this. A
        banana will do the trick. Some people swear by protein (such
        as an egg) at breakfast to delay the energy dip. Experiment
        until you find what works best for you.

        Still on the subject of diet, if you want to have a productive
        afternoon avoid large lunches because they divert blood from
        the brain and to digestion. If you've ever felt like taking a nap
        after lunch, that's why. Also, don't drink alcohol at lunchtime
        because it's a sedative. All you'll want to do is go to sleep.
        Not very conducive to a productive afternoon's work.


        Focus on results, not on being busy. You are, I'm sure,
        familiar with the Pareto Principle, also known as the 80/20
        rule. The Pareto Principle says that 80% of unfocused effort
        generates only 20% of results and the remaining 80% of
        results are achieved with only 20% of effort. Focus on the
        results you are wanting to achieve and look for ways to work
        more efficiently.


        No doubt your activity log revealed an amazing amount of
        time taken up with distractions. Distractions can take many
        forms but let's look at three major ones: email, telephone calls
        and casual visitors.

        => Email

        Check your non-work (i.e. non-job) email only once or twice
        a day and deal with each item only once. That means reading it,
        responding to it, filing it for later review or trashing it. Don't
        leave it sitting in your inbox once you've opened it or you'll
        forget what it is and waste time rereading it probably several
        times over.

        => Telephone Calls

        Be disciplined with telephone calls. Have an agenda before
        dialing and stick to it. Be clear in your own mind the purpose
        of your call and the outcome you want. It's also a good idea to
        schedule "telephone time" if you can manage it. This is an hour
        or so every day when you make and return phone calls.

        => Casual Visitors

        Discourage chatty drop-in visitors by getting up from your
        desk, continuing to appear busy, not having convenient
        visitors' chairs (drape your coat over them or pile them up
        with papers) or by saying something like, "Joe can I get back
        to you on whatever it is once I'm done here? I'm under the


        Get out of the habit of feeling bad about declining requests
        from people to take on tasks that will erode even further the
        precious little time you have available. Now, if it's your boss
        and what you're being asked to do falls within your job
        description, you obviously have no choice, but do you really
        need to be on yet another committee?


        Time spent waiting for an appointment or when you're
        travelling can be put to productive use. Use that 15 minutes
        you're waiting in the doctor's surgery to sketch out some
        article ideas, write some classified ads or answer email. Same
        thing when you're travelling. If you're travelling by air, try and
        get a seat that will allow you to work. That may mean an
        emergency exit or a bulkhead seat, for example. Any seat
        that will allow you to work on your laptop comfortably is worth
        the effort.


        This one is a no-brainer. If you get up just one hour earlier
        each day, you effectively create another 365 hours a year.
        That's more than 45 working days. You could create a brand
        new website in only 10 working days. You could write the
        outline of a novel in the same time period. At least think about


        Consider learning how to speed read to save time on your
        business reading. Alternatively, learning more effective
        reading strategies to extract the required information most
        efficiently is another time saver.

        These are just a few ideas to get you thinking about how
        you can save time and create time in your day. By putting
        these principles to work and constantly testing your activities
        against the yardstick "does this make a worthwhile
        contribution to my work, business or personal wellbeing?",
        you will quickly develop a radar for time wasters and begin to
        eliminate them from your life. By simplifying your life in this
        way you will be amazed at how much more you are able to
        accomplish in the time available to you and your dream of
        giving up your day job for your own full-time business will
        become a reality much sooner than you would have ever
        thought possible.

        Many web ads are coded to spawn new pop-ups if a user
        begins closing them -- a practice known as "mousetrapping."


        Advertising Time Line...

        1919 - The trade magazine Printer's Ink cautions against "an
        insidious campaign to create women smokers" in reaction to
        the portrayal of women in 'smart social settings' in cigarette

        The first organized advertising campaign directed towards
        women would not come about until 1927; however, women
        were pictured in cigarette ads previous to this date.


        => WHAT IS MOM UP TO?

        Two highly sought-after demographics -- mothers and
        Hispanics/Latinos -- are becoming more numerous online,
        according to research from America Online's Digital Marketing
        Services unit and comScore Networks.

        According to America Online DMS, mothers who use the
        Internet now spend up to 16 hours and 52 minutes per week
        online. This means they spend more time online than teens,
        who log about 12 hours and 17 minutes.

        According to AOL, moms go online most often to communicate
        (97 percent), for news (93 percent) and local shopping and
        entertainment information (90 percent). Eighty-eight percent
        of women also said they sought health information online, while
        83 percent said they researched products and services using
        the Internet. Eighty percent also said they searched for
        discounts or coupons using the Web.

        Nationally, Charleston, S.C., Tampa, Fla. and Nashville, Tenn.
        rank as the top cities for "Wired Moms," in which Internet-
        using mothers spend the most time online.


        ComScore Networks reported that Hispanics have become the
        fastest-growing segment of the online population.

        According to research based on its own panel of 1.5 million
        Internet users, comScore charted a 19 percent growth in the
        U.S. Hispanic Internet population from last year -- more than
        three times the growth among non-Hispanic Internet users.

        As a result, U.S. Hispanics now comprise 11 percent of the
        total U.S. online population, up from 9.9 percent in the prior

        comScore also found that while fewer U.S. Hispanic Internet
        users bought online during a given month -- with 8 percent
        making a purchase, versus 10 percent of non-Hispanic Web
        users -- Hispanic buyers spent 7 percent, or $15, more than
        the average non-Hispanic e-commerce shopper.


        An April 2017 New California Media (NCM) survey of 2,000
        African Americans, Asian Americans and Hispanics in California
        determined that 40% of respondents pay more attention to
        ads in their native language than to those that are in English.
        Additionally, NCM determined that 63% are more likely to buy
        the product or service advertised in an ethnic-oriented
        publication or program.

        Specifically, the NCM found that 51% of Hispanics surveyed
        prefer Spanish language radio stations to those broadcast in
        English, 43% prefer Spanish language television and 23%
        prefer Spanish language newspapers.


        Business Software Alliance (BSA) estimates that as of May
        2017, roughly 50% of internet users in the US have
        downloaded software off of the internet, but 81% of those
        people have not consistently paid for the copies they have
        made. The BSA surveyed 1,000 internet users and also found
        that 57% of respondents say they have "seldom" or "never"
        paid for downloading software.

        Perhaps ironically, or maybe an indication of the impersonal
        nature of the internet, BSA found that 95% of US internet
        users think people who create software should be paid for
        their work.
