3.5 Million People And A Possible UK Home Business Opportunity
Has this ever happened to you... 'John, you have a lot of mail this morning dear'. Stunned as a goldfish you walk over to the kitchen table and pick up the envelopes. Each one is a quality envelope that has an address label with your name on it. You flick through them and the labels are more or less identical. You open one, then another and you can then start to feel what the others are about. More UK home business opportunity!
But that still doesn't stop you. You'll still want to open all of them, just to make sure. If you have time you read some, as there's no chance of you taking them to work to be embarrassed by your colleagues. 'Checking out your 'junk' mail!' Or you'll leave them there to be read in the evening.
Chances are getting slimmer for the sales person (letter) to get your attention. They want you to read the material immediately. Don't leave it till the evening you could be tired or playing with the kids. 'It can wait till the weekend...' Never happens!
But I have the 'Internet', the information highway...
Good, now what?
This is possibly one of the biggest mistakes you can make. Why? You see one business opportunity that catches your interest. Gets you drooling over the page and you can't wait to download it instantly to receive the package, virtually. You're about to pay and 'boom' a pop up occurs. Another UK home business opportunity if not from the US, catches your attention and gets you going and now you're confused, then another and another.
With so much to choose from, it's an absolute craze. At the time of writing there is over 650,000,000 pages of 'work from home' opportunities. That's right, over half a 'billion' pages! Also for 'business opportunity' it's in the 100 million mark.
However, through the post you'll get the odd one now and then, but on the Internet there is instant access to over 750 million pages of information relating to home based business.
Now you'll either spend a couple of thousand or be sceptical and buy nothing. There are too many home business opportunities on the net, which makes it difficult to choose or not choose at all.
The Guarantee Period
This is 'powerful' medium. A general guarantee entails that if the system does not work for you within the next 30 days you can ask for a refund. It has been said that the longer the guarantee period, the more the interest. But figure this... Will you remember that in 3 months, 6 or 8 months time?
This is what could possibly happen. You buy the package and you read it several times if not once. You put it down and do your daily chores or go to work. You keep thinking, 'I'll get round to it'. And as you keep thinking I'll get round to it, the 37 days are over. Now whose fault is that?
So What's A Good Business Opportunity?
There are many factors to cover, but a business opportunity is not compatible for every individual. It might work for one and not the other.
If you do take on a business opportunity, learn to adapt to what it says. If you don't, then you can proudly blame yourself, if you can! One difficult skill to adapt to is to work on your own initiative and in your own time. Finding access to these precious factors is a major problem, especially for some.
You need to make time, work on your own initiative and be self-motivated. That's how you'll become successful.
Summing it up and what Winston Churchill said at a conference once:
Never give up
Never give up
Never, never, never?

Do Your Best; Hire the Rest
One of the hidden perks of raising six children is the learning laboratory it provides for the parents. My wife and I have learned how important it is to teach our children to do things for themselves and become problem solvers. There isn't enough time to do it any other way with a house full of children. Learning how to tie your shoes, make a telephone call and solve for two unknowns in an algebraic equation are examples of goals society sets for children. Undeniably, do it yourself skills are important for all of us to acquire.

Virtual Assistance for Healthcare Professionals
Administrative and clerical tasks are the bane of every industry. No matter how small or large your business is, you will eventually find yourself with stacks of paperwork that need your attention and phone calls that need to be made. And when will you find the time? If you are busy seeing your clients during the day, then the paperwork waits until the evenings and weekends. This can make for some very long days and total exhaustion. Hiring a virtual assistant is becoming the best option for many professionals.
Franchising VS Business Opportunity; What is the Difference?
The modern Franchise business model and the much different business opportunity are much different and dissimilar. The definition of these two business models should be broken into completely different parts to better fit the two-different business models and have their own set of regulations, which would contain similar stipulations with regards to prohibitions, definitions or basic rules of law. The Federal Trade Commission is considering a redefining of these two models under their legal description.
Competition in the Market Place and Over Disclosure Regulatory Burden
The Federal Trade Commission is assisting competitor to cheat and encouraging this unethical behavior thru their disclosure rule on franchisors. Competition in the market place is far more competitive and the stakes are high enough that Over Disclosure Regulatory Rules cause competition to take the advantage and cheat. And before you say I am off base on these comments, let me tell you that 20% of every single inquiry to buy our franchise comes from a competitor. That's right 20%.

Site Selection - Slice of Life, A Car Wash and Detail Center DownTown
There is a continual trend we are seeing which I can remember participating in over a decade ago, when cities were trying to figure out how to increase sales tax revenues when the large box stores outside of town came into nearby or surrounding areas. For instance a big and easy example would be Wal-Mart. Sam was smart and built his stores just outside of town near towns, which drew from neighboring towns of 5,000 or more from three to five directions. If you look at an over lay of Wal-Mart stores to an atlas of that state you will see the rural America can get anything they need at the best price without driving all that far.
