        Hello again and a warm welcome to all the new subscribers who
        have joined us since the last issue!

        This week's article is for all of you who think how wonderful it
        would be to work from home.  Although the benefits of working
        from home are undeniable, there are also some pretty tough
        downsides.  One of those is the isolation monster.  This week's
        article looks at ways of beating the isolation blues in the early
        days of your home business.

        As always, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy this week's

        Remember, this ezine is for YOU!  If you have comments or
        suggestions for topics you would like to see addressed, or would

        to hear from you!  Please send comments, questions and stories

        2.      Home-Based Business Idea of the Week - Garage Sales

        Pick almost any city or town in the country, drive through any
        middle class neighborhood or residential area on the weekend,
        and you're sure to spot at least a half dozen garage sales.

        What's being sold at these garage sales? The accumulated
        "junk" people no longer use or want taking up space in or around
        their homes. Are they making any money with these garage
        sales? You'd better believe they're making money! It's not at all
        uncommon to make $600 with a weekend garage sale. Is it hard
        to put on a profitable garage sale? Well, yes and no. It really
        does take some of your time, and also requires an awareness of
        a few merchandising tactics. But the problems in running a
        successful garage sale are small in comparison to the profits.

        Who are the buyers, and how do you get them to come to your
        garage sale? Your customers are going to be "everybody," and
        you get them over to your garage sale with a little bit of advertising
        and promotion.

        Let's look at the background: Everybody accumulates the kind
        of garage sale items that other people are searching for, and are
        willing to buy. These items range from no longer wanted or outgrown
        items of clothing, to furniture, tools, knick-knacks, books, pictures
        and toys. Many garage sale items are objects of merchandise
        purchased on impulse, and later found to be not what the buyer
        wanted. Many items found at garage sales are gifts that have been
        given to the seller, but are the wrong size or incorrect choice for
        the recipient.

        The problem with most people is that they haven't the time to
        gather up all the items "just taking up space" in and around their
        homes and staging a garage sale to get rid of them. Many people
        don't know how to stage a garage sale, and many other people
        feel that putting on a garage sale is just too much bother and work.

        This is where you enter the picture. Your enterprise will be an
        ongoing garage sale of items donated and collected from these
        people who lack the inclination to put on garage sales of their own.

        3.      Feature Article - Overcoming Isolation in Your Home

        © 2013 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:


        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.

        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

        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.


        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 are establishing
        professional relationships with your joint venture partners.


        Once you have 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 are 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.

        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.


        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.


        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 is 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

        Use your keyboard to access the start menu without fumbling
        around for your mouse. What are you, afraid of the keys? See
        that little window flying between the Ctrl and Alt keys next to
        the spacebar (that's where the Jetsons hang out)? Press it. And
        wow! Your start menu opens!
