        transition from busy corporate office to too quiet home alone.

        2.     Home Business Idea of the Week - Menu Planner

        Have you ever tried to lose weight? If so, you know that
        one of the greatest challenges is adhering to a calorie-
        controlled program while still enjoying the good things in life.
        A good imagination goes a long way also. Why not put your
        experience to good use by creating menu plans for people
        seeking to reduce their weight?

        This is an ideal business to run on the internet. Do your
        research and put together a few basic menu plans for
        different daily calorie levels. You may consider 1,000, 1,500,
        2,000, 2,500 and so on. Also include variations to cater for
        special dietary requirements such as vegetarianism, non-dairy

        You could set up your website to work like this. Offer a free
        initial "consultation". Create a form for your prospect to
        complete online. Using your research as your guide, include
        such variables as height, current weight, sex, activity level
        etc. Based on this information, your research will teach you
        what range your prospect's weight should fall within and how
        much he or she has to lose. If you figure that a safe weight
        loss occurs at the rate of 1lb per week, you will be able to
        calculate how few calories your prospect needs to consume
        to be able to shed weight at that rate. Once you have
        identified that calorie level, forward a menu plan for that
        calorie level.

        How you structure access to your service is something you
        will need to decide upon. For example, you may decide on a
        monthly fee for access to your weekly menu plans. You could
        also offer an add-on services such as workout routines and
        the like.

        By publishing a regular newsletter you will be able to keep in
        touch with your existing and prospective clients and attract
        paid sponsorship.

        And there is no need to restrict yourself to the weight-loss
        market. How about people who struggle for ideas for everyday
        menu planning or dinner parties?


        This is just one of over 130 ideas from the new "Practical
        Home Business Ideas From AHBBO" e-book.  Find out more at

        3.     Feature Article:  The Isolation Monster and How to
          Slay It

        © 2017 Elena Fawkner

        Like most people, when you think about what it would be like
        to work from home, you probably think of the obvious
        benefits such as working your own hours, not having to face
        a stressful, tedious commute every day, actually seeing what
        your garden looks like in daylight hours, not having to
        answer to a boss, being home when your children are, working
        in a comfortable environment and so on. These are, of
        course, some of only many wonderful benefits of working from

        Before long, though, you may begin to think back to your
        previous life and realize you actually miss those umpteen
        visitors who were constantly interrupting you when you were
        trying to work, the walk in the park at lunchtime with your
        best work-friend, drinks on Friday night after work, and
        being able to run an idea past a colleague for instant,
        valuable feedback.

        Now, everything is just, well, quiet. And there's no-one
        down the hall to go visit who's over age four. You find
        yourself checking your email constantly, wanting to connect
        to someone. You find yourself wishing the phone would ring.
        You! The person who, when you worked in a job, cursed
        constant telephone interruptions and thought voice- and
        e-mail was the greatest invention since sliced bread.

        Welcome to another reality of home-based business ... home

        Here are some ways to avoid the isolation trap when running
        a business out of your home:

        1. Establish a Structure

        Nothing is surer to reinforce feelings of isolation as time
        that stretches as far as the eye can see like a straight,
        one lane highway through a flat, barren landscape. Don't
        start each day without a plan of what you intend to do. You
        need to structure your time so that it is not some endlessly
        vast terrain you must traverse alone. So write a to-do list,
        preferably at the end of the day before, so that when your
        work day starts you get productive straight away, before the
        isolation blues have a chance to take hold.

        2. Reach Out

        When writing your to-do list, make sure you include at least
        two things every day that require you to interact with
        another person. Networking is a vital skill, whether you
        work for someone else or for yourself. So make contacts
        with people who can add value to your business, as well as
        connecting you with the outside world.

        Joining a professional group or club, attending seminars and
        trade shows relevant to your business are all great ways to
        meet new people who have similar interests and challenges.
        Participate in the activities organized by these groups and
        take a good supply of business cards with you.

        3. Establish Joint Ventures

        Another way to keep the isolation blues at bay is to joint
        venture with other home-based business owners. Team up with
        other businesses that offer complementary services to your
        business. Not only will you send additional business each
        other's way in the form of referrals, you're establishing
        professional relationships with your joint venture partners.

        4. Organize Your Own Functions

        Once you've joined various associations and formed joint
        venture partnerships, take the initiative and organize
        functions that bring you all together. These could be
        business-oriented networking sessions or purely social
        get-togethers such as a barbeque in the local park. Either
        way, you're forging a relationship with people in your new
        arena, just as you did when you were working in a corporate
        office. The only difference is that now you must take the
        initiative to forge these relationships. These are not
        people you are going to be seeing every day at the office.

        5. Join a Gym

        You are, of course, health conscious and physically active,
        right? Of course you are! So, why not kill two birds with
        one stone ... stay fit and meet new people. If you
        establish a routine that allows you to be at the gym at the
        same time every day, you will run into many of the same
        people and get to know them.

        6. Use the Internet

        Making online friends is another way of staying connected
        with the outside world. Be very disciplined here though.
        It's way too easy to spend a lot of work time on social
        email exchanges and in chat rooms. Don't fritter away your
        time, but do seek out and maintain internet friendships.

        7. Background Noise

        Sometimes, it's only silence that reminds you you're alone.
        If you come from a corporate environment, your workday was
        punctuated by the constant background noise of telephones
        ringing, other people's conversations, hysterical laughter
        from the other end of the office and lunch trolley pages
        over the intercom system. If you find absolute quiet
        irksome, turn on the radio and have it playing in the
        background while you work. Talk stations are good because
        it's like having other people in the next room, but if you
        find yourself becoming so engrossed with the talk topics
        that you stop working and start listening, switch to a
        music station.

        There's no avoiding the fact that making the transition
        from a corporate environment to a home-based business is
        just that ... a transition. Most people will have to
        grapple with the isolation monster in the early days of
        their work-from-home career. But, as you can see, there
        are many ways of keeping isolation and loneliness at bay
        just by reaching out and forming new associations. Remember,
        just because you work alone doesn't mean you have to go it

        4.     Surveys and Trends

        © 2017 Ryanna's Hope


        People are more likely to log on to the Internet than they are to
        call you or request info by mail. So make your Web site URL
        stand out in a large font style. Most advertisers bury their URL
        in tiny print, making it practically impossible to read. While your
        telephone number, address and company name are all important,
        your URL should get equal consideration if not a bigger type

        Consumers voiced concerns about the blurring lines between
        online advertising and content on sites. More than half of users
        (59%) say it is very important for news and information sites to
        label their advertising as such and distinguish it from news and
        information on the site. In addition, most respondents (60%)
        had no idea some of the most popular search engines accept
        fees in exchange for listing some sites more prominently than
        others. A majority of users (80%) demand that search engines
        disclose such business deals in their search results or in an
        easy-to-find page on the site.
        (source: consumer webwatch)


        Modalis Research surveyed 1,000 US consumers between April
        and May 2001 and found that 98% of respondents have used
        the internet for some form of customer service help. The most
        popular customer service element consumers desired on a
        company's website was the general telephone number -- 86%
        sought the number online.


        WorldCom Research says that US businesses should integrate
        different forms of communication between customer and
        company into their already existing structures. It notes that
        56% of respondents think that the internet provides most
        answers, but it is sometimes necesssary to talk to an actual


        Findings in eMarketer's eCommerce: B2C Report support the
        trends noted by WorldCom/Modalis. Cyber Dialog determined
        in 2017 that 55% of US online shoppers thought toll-free calls
        to a customer service representative were "extremely helpful,"
        and 23% felt the same about an FAQ section on a company's
        site. An Indiana University/KPMG study reported that in 2017,
        79% of US online shoppers considered toll-free telephone
        access a "must have" customer service feature.


        In a study done by America Research regarding how many
        read "Sunday newspaper inserts" the results revealed 39% were
        reading them -- however, after supermarkets began using the
        double coupon programs, that number immediately rose to .....

        Check with your Sunday paper to see what they'll accept in the
        line of flyers or postcards from you with your product or service
        advertised. You just may get some startling results depending on
        what you're selling!

        AND... THE "NUMBER ONE REASON"....

        eMarketer reported that in the beginning of 2001, the number
        one reason US internet users did not buy online was because
        customer service options were slow, poor or non-existent.
