        1.     Welcome and Update from Elena

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

        allocating activities to the most appropriate time for them
        and then being disciplined in carrying them out.  "Focus
        Your Light" is at segment 3.

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

        2.     Home Business Idea of the Week - Travel Club

        Most Travel Clubs are organized on the premise of building a
        sizable membership capable of negotiating discounts with
        various travel providers.

        The Travel Club makes money earning a commission every
        time a member purchases airline tickets, books a hotel room,
        or goes on a cruise. Today, things have changed quite a bit.


        With a swelling membership basis it is difficult for travel clubs
        to ignore the profits of charging for membership, no matter
        how insignificant the amount. With 10,000 members, a travel
        club charging only $20 a year will earn $200,000 in membership
        dues. This revenue is over any commission the Club earns
        when a member travels.


        A Travel Club normally acts as a travel agent for the exclusive
        use of its members. As an "agency", it gets standard agent
        commissions from airlines, hotels and cruise lines. This can
        range anywhere between 10% and 18% of the purchase price.
        What travel clubs usually do is offer its members a rebate
        equivalent to 50% of its commission (meaning 5% to 9% of
        their purchase price). If the member spends $1,000, he/she
        gets back anywhere between $50 and $90. This is enough
        reason for people to join a travel club, especially if the
        membership dues are just $20 a year.


        As today's market shifts from the "all-in-one" and "do-it-all"
        service companies to that of "specialized" services, so do
        travel clubs. Based on industry statistics, the best area to
        specialize in is the Cruise business, the fastest-growing
        segment in Travel.


        Sell memberships to your All-Cruise Travel Club and offer
        rebates on all cruises and peripheral services the member
        books through the club. Find products or services that you
        can give as bonus for signing up for a year's membership.

        You may even want to seek distributors who will purchase
        membership cards in advance, at 15% of the retail price.
        This means that if the membership retails for $20, a
        distributor buys it from you for $3. If you sell 10,000
        memberships this way, you've just earned $30,000. Then,
        add to this revenue from commissions when members take
        a cruise.


        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:  Focus Your Light

        © 2017 Elena Fawkner

        Remember when you were a kid how you could make paper
        catch fire by focusing the sun's rays with a magnifying

        You'd look over your shoulder at the sun, get the angle of
        the rays just right, and move the magnifying glass until
        you could see a small circle of bright light on the piece
        of paper in front of you. Gradually, that circle began to
        turn brown and the paper began to smoulder until its edges
        began to curl under as the flame took hold.

        How did that humble magnifying glass start something as
        powerful and elemental as a fire? The answer, of course, is
        concentration. Concentration of the sun's rays into a tiny,
        intense circle of heat. In a word, FOCUS.

        We work the same way. If we truly focus our energy,
        concentration and creativity, we bring an intensity to the
        task that we just can't generate if these things are
        scattered amongst several projects at once.

        Now, to simply say to you, "focus your energy and you will
        achieve greater results" is all very well. It's quite another
        matter entirely to be able to do it, especially when there
        are umpteen different priorities constantly tugging away at
        you, each demanding at least some of your attention and

        To bring focus to your various activities, you need to break
        the cycle of allowing yourself to be distracted from the
        task at hand.

        -> Identify Priority Tasks

        To start with, you should allocate your time proportionately
        to all of the various tasks you need to do. Notice I said
        NEED to do. The first step is to decide what truly needs to
        be done and what doesn't. If you categorize a task as
        something that needs to be done, ask yourself why it is
        necessary. Another way of asking the same question is to
        ask yourself, "what will happen if I don't do this today?".
        If the ultimate consequence is that nothing will happen, why
        do it?

        If you find yourself reluctantly concluding, well, I don't
        NEED to do this, I WANT to, then put it into the "need to
        do" category. Doing things for yourself, for your own
        enjoyment or satisfaction, should be a priority. Focus is
        not only about doing the things you should do, it is doing
        the things you want to do as well. By including in your
        need to do list things that are for your own personal
        pleasure and enjoyment, you replenish yourself and this in
        turn allows you to bring even greater focus, awareness and
        creativity to your other activities. So, give yourself
        permission to enjoy yourself.

        ->Allocate Time to Priority Tasks

        Now that you have identified your 'need to do' activities,
        decide when you are going to do them and estimate how long
        you think they will take. Then add 40%. One of the
        immutable laws of the universe is that everything takes
        longer than you think it will. Save yourself the stress of
        running to keep up with the clock.

        When thinking about when you will do a specific task, work
        with your body. Are you a morning person, a night-owl, a
        late-afternoon person or something else entirely? Whichever
        you are, schedule for that time your most intellectually
        demanding tasks. If you're a morning person, for example,
        and one of your 'need to do' activities is to write a sales
        page for your website, allocate this task to your prime time.
        Then allocate your less intellectually demanding activities,
        such as reading and responding to email, to your off-peak

        Similarly, don't schedule your personal time for your prime
        time. Again, if you're a morning person, schedule your hour
        lying out in the sun for mid-afternoon, your 'off-peak'

        By making strategic use of your time in this way you will be
        making the most efficient use of your prime time while STILL
        being able to do the things that YOU enjoy, and on a daily

        Compare this approach with a fragmented one. You're a
        morning person. You need to write a sales page for your web
        site. You also need to read and respond to email today and
        you also want to schedule time, just an hour or so, to get
        some sun.

        It's morning but, instead of starting your sales page, you
        decide to read and respond to your email first, to kind of
        ease into the day. That's a breeze because reading and
        responding to email is not an intellectually demanding task
        and you're at your peak anyway. You finish reading and
        responding to your mail two hours later.

        Now you think about writing your sales page. But you've
        used your peak concentration time on email and you've lost
        that sharp edge you always have first thing in the morning.
        That makes writing sales copy, an already intellectually
        demanding task, even more difficult. You really don't feel
        like it right now. So you put it off. You look for something
        easier to do.

        Maybe you could take that hour off now and use the time
        while you're lying out in the sun to get your head together.
        But no, you can't relax if you know you have work
        uncompleted. So you decide to force yourself to make a
        start on your sales copy. You write your copy but it just
        doesn't flow. It feels stilted and contrived.

        You begin to get frustrated and annoyed with yourself. If
        only I'd got it over and done with first thing I'd be
        dealing with my email right now looking forward to lying out
        in the sun for a while later on, you think. That's what I should
        be doing! So, you get annoyed with yourself, and become
        generally irritable. Which, of course, just blocks the
        creative flow even more. Lunchtime rolls around and you feel
        like you've wasted half a day.

        What a waste of energy, concentration and creativity! What
        a lack of FOCUS. Just look at the energy you've wasted
        feeling annoyed and irritable with yourself. Just think what
        you could have accomplished if you'd put that energy to
        good use and focused!

        Save yourself the angst. Identify priority tasks, strategically
        allocate times of the day to each task depending on how
        intellectually demanding they are, and exercise personal
        DISCIPLINE to do the right thing right and at the right time.

        -> Concentrate on One Thing at a Time

        When you're doing the right thing at the right time,
        dedicate yourself to that one thing and nothing else. Don't
        let your mind wander to what else you could be doing. You
        don't need to worry about that because "what else" has been
        allocated its own time and that time will come.

        Remember, the whole point of focusing is to make maximum use
        of your time, energy, concentration and creativity. If you
        can do this, you will give yourself the gift of more time
        for yourself and your family. So remember to turn it off
        too. Give 100% of yourself to the task at hand during the
        time allocated to that task and then let it go.
