Developing Your Business Plan

[ad_1]

Most individuals who want to open their own retail business or internet business need to approach a lender to secure financing. For your request to be successful, you need to have a very powerful business plan. The more detailed your business plan is, the more it shows the lender that you are dedicated to following through on your project. It also shows you have the skills to work through all the aspects of your business including day to day operations and long term plans.

Don’t make the mistake of simply going in to talk to your lender without a business plan in hand. To make it easy to read, you need to have it divided up into sections. Together, the sections of your marketing plan are going to discuss what your product or service is, who your target market is, how you plan to reach them, and the estimated profits and expenses for the next five years. Simply place it all in a binder or clear cover to make it look more professional.

The first part of the business plan needs to be your introduction. It needs to be short, but also very powerful. If the lender isn’t impressed with the introduction, they may decide not to finish reading what you have to offer. This is the perfect place to include information about your skills, desires, and motivations for operating your own business.

The next part of your business plan needs to discuss your target market. This section needs to be very detailed. Make sure it covers why you think there is a need for your product or service, how you will reach your target market, and discuss each of your marketing strategies in detail. It is very important that you have at least two distinct marketing strategies in your business plan.

In this section you will also discuss the elements of your product or service. It needs to include the cost of making it, how much you plan to sell it for, and how you will distribute it. All of your prices need to be as accurate as possible. This shows the lender that you have been doing your homework and that you have a realistic idea of the profits and expenses involved in the business.

Your lender is going to want to find out how your business is going to be operated, and this information goes next. Include all the information about the internal structure of your business. You also need to include information on the equipment necessary to operate your business in this section.

Think about any consultants, marketing agencies, employees, managers, etc. that you will be incorporating into your business. Try to get as accurate of a dollar amount associated with these operating expenses as you can.

Your financial plan for the business is the next section of your business plan. This needs to include projected income and expenses over a five year period. You will need to provide information on how you came up with the figures used. It is a good idea to use conservative figures in your business plan when it comes to income. If you make more that is wonderful, but don’t overshoot your profits.

I suggest that you include risks that can increase your expenses and lower your profits in this section as well. It is not required, but your lender will already be thinking of the risk factor involved with your business venture. By outlining some of them as well as how you will handle them, you show the lender you are willing to take that risk and that you understand some of the challenges you may face on the road to having a successful business.

The last section is to be a brief summary of everything including in your business plan. Focus on the positive aspects of it in this area of the business plan. This is the last information the lender will read so you need it to be convincing.

Writing a successful business plan is going to take you time, but it will be a very valuable tool for securing funding for your business. Try to include as many details in your business plan as possible. It is a good idea to get a friend or family member to read through it before you see the lender.

They may have questions about particular areas, and this gives you a chance to make any changes to the business plan. Don’t forget to include your personal views in your business plan. This is the best way to allow your passion and motivation for operating your own business to shine through.

The Human Side of Branding

[ad_1]

There is a lot more to branding than identity, advertising and public relations. Brands also need to get in touch with their human face.

“I want to build my brand.”

I have lost count of the number of times I have heard this statement in the 11 years since we started brand-comm, a consulting company dedicated to building brands. And yet, as is to be expected, people have different expectations from branding and the entire process of branding. The next steps to these statements usually follow one of the following courses of action. ‘I think our identity is dated and today’s consumers are young, so let’s change it, and shouldn’t we be thinking global?’ This is good news for international brand consultants and design experts as they instantly see (million) $$$ signs. The identity change is announced with great fanfare and it usually goes down like the Indian team went down in Zimbabwe – with scarcely a whimper – as nothing except the identity has changed and the brand is still the same boring brand.

Another alternative is to try to build corporate image through a high-profile TV commercial, probably shot in New Zealand, but without the benefit of a core idea that defines the essence of the brand. “The execution will be clutter-breaking” says the agency Creative Director. The brand promise is not delivered, after all “Yuvarajs” exist in corporate life too!

Another way forward is to hire a public relations firm which goes hammer and tongs at the media – organises one-on-ones, speaker and photo opportunities – all of which generate intense interest about the MD in cocktail parties and amidst head-hunting firms but nothing much happens to the brand. And today there is another option as well.

Sponsor some high-profile IPL team and even if the team does not win a single match, the players dutifully land up at post-IPL parties wearing your brand on their sleeves (if not their hearts) on them.

I know that I am perhaps sounding cynical, a not unexpected reaction from someone my age, but that is hardly the impression I wish to convey or the point I wish to make. There is a whole lot more to branding than identity, colours, TV advertising, sponsorship, events and public relations. While I am not denying the importance or value of these, I think there is something more basic, more obvious and yet, perhaps, more difficult to manage, which is why companies seem to spend so little time on this and that is what I would call the “human side of branding”. Here are a few examples of how companies, however big, get this important aspect of their functioning woefully wrong.

The first impression…

… has the potential of being the worst impression. You enter an impressive building, exquisitely designed, wonderfully architected with a façade that could make you stop in your tracks. You cross the manicured gardens and enter the plush reception. And whom do you meet? A security guard in place of the young, efficient, smiling, helpful receptionists that people of my age were used to seeing earlier, but then this is perhaps the order of the day in most companies.

Of course, some of these security guards are smart, even speak good English and can be courteous enough, as was the security guard at the Oberoi in Bangalore last week. He welcomed me in the traditional Indian way. But many are not the way they ought to be and you can easily imagine the impact on the brand when they are found wanting. Of course, I am fond of repeating my experiences of having been welcomed in a company by a security guard whose company name tag read “Doberman”. Obviously, you can understand my nervousness! Did the Chairman of the company ever walk past this, I wonder, or does he have his own private elevator that enables him to bypass this welcoming committee?

You don’t call me,

I will call you

Another quick reality check for a brand is the way the company answers, or should I say does not answer, the phone. How often do we get the impression that the phone is ringing and the operators are having a good time, when the phone is actually busy?

Let’s assume that you have achieved the holy grail of actually getting through to the company and to an operator who puts you on hold. Of course, you may be calling the company not because you are in love with it, but probably because it has goofed and you want to give it a piece of your mind.

What happens then? You are put on hold and the company’s jingle of how it is God’s gift to the human race goes on endlessly like the maiden overs that Nadkarni used to reel off and you are seething. So what is your view of the brand at that particular point in time? Top-of-mind for all the wrong reasons is probably your reaction.

Let’s move on to a slightly more sensitive topic of company or brand culture. Have you ever tried getting in touch with the CEO of a large company? Life seems to be one long meeting; senior people are constantly in meetings, unreachable despite being online 24 x 7. They never take calls, respond to text messages or answer mails. After all, they are busy. I remember my first boss telling me “you are paid to be busy”.

But are these captains of industry so busy as to be completely unresponsive, sometimes to calls even from their friends and former colleagues? But what happens then? The company takes its cue from the CEO and soon you have a company that is completely, totally inaccessible, at times even to the media.

If, for whatever reason, the company needs you, it will call you a few hundred times! Do these companies ever bother to assess what the rest of the world has to say about them? Do they even care?

And this is precisely how the brand comes across to the rest of the world and I cannot imagine the ignored parties being quiet about the company and its total lack of response. Surely there has to be a better, more sensitive, more humane way of doing business that can impact the brand and the corporate image positively?

A better way to recruit?

Bangalore is the software capital of India, if not the world, and if you were to believe everything that you read about these companies then you would be convinced they are the greatest places to work in. They probably are.

Make no mistake about this, I am a great admirer of Indian software companies and yet here is an incident that made a profound impression on me, even if it had me a bit concerned about how the brand was getting it wrong.

I am going to talk about one of the top software companies in India if not the world. They needed a director for their brand and I had with great difficulty organised one of my juniors from IIM for this; she was the head of a large advertising agency and went for the meeting at my insistence.

There were many calls reminding her of the meeting. She went to the complex and found herself with hundreds of engineers looking for a job. She also found herself at the venue much earlier because the company wanted her to fill up a form! She was hopping mad, and to add insult to injury, it was not the HR head that she met but her lackey.

Clearly, the company was better suited to recruit thousands of engineer trainees but was probably not geared to deal with a senior employee, particularly someone who needed to be wooed. Luckily the lady in question did not have a blog or she could have told the world about the company and its manner of recruitment.

There is nothing wrong with the company, its financial results or even its image. It is still admired and will continue to be admired but such incidents can and will hurt the brand. But then someone has to be aware of the implications of the acts of commission and omission of each and every one of its employees and we are not talking of CEOs here.

Let me end this piece with a quote by Lee Clow: “Managing brands is going to be more about trying to manage everything that your company does.” Yes, everything that your company does! Every action that every employee or your outsourced partner does or does not do continues to impact your brand.

Let’s continue this discussion next fortnight. But in the meanwhile can you think about how good your brand’s human side is? Let us discuss it in my blog: Third Umpire On Branding

(Ramanujam Sridhar is CEO, brand-comm, and the author of Googly: Branding on Indian Turf.)

3 Must Have Essential Oils to Calm Your Pet

[ad_1]

The reason I love animals so much is that they give off an attitude of happiness, innocence and unconditional love to their people.  Our pets are just as happy being a part of our household as we are of having them with us.

But sometimes an animal comes into our life that is a bit “out there!”

For instance, the dog that has an irrational fear of rain and won’t for the life of him go outside to potty during a rain shower.  Or the cat who hides for hours when a friend comes over.  Or, how about the dog with attachment issues that destroys the house while you’re at work?  Any of these sound familiar?

My cat’s, Sammie and Max, love to hang out on our screened-in patio.  But whenever the garbage truck comes rolling in, they flee for their lives!

It might sound crazy to us, but whatever your animal’s fears or wacky behaviors may be, they are completely legitimate in their minds.

Using essential oils on your animals can really take the edge off of their anxiety, big time!

Because of an animal’s heightened senses, they respond very well to essential oils.  In the wild, animals eat specific plants to heal themselves.  In captivity (our homes), the plant kingdom is not readily available.  Using essential oils on your pet gives them access to the vast healing properties of nature.

The three best essential oils to calm your pets are:

Lavender

Roman Chamomile

Peace & Calming® (a blend from Young Living)

These essential oils can be used to support your animal with; fear of rain and thunderstorms, separation anxiety, hyperactivity, trauma/abuse, depression, Illness, trips to the vet’s office, grief/loss of another family pet and any other situation that causes great stress for your animal, such as garbage trucks!

When you apply essential oils to animals, always remember less is more as animals are very sensitive to essential oils.

Also, with animals, it’s best to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil such as organic olive oil.  I recommend one part essential oil to 1 part carrier oil for all animals EXCEPT cats. The dilution ratio for cats is 1 part essential oil to 10 parts carrier oil.

Use caution with cats!

Any of the essential oils listed in this article are safe for dogs and horses, however; cats are a different story! Cats are extremely sensitive to essential oils containing phenols, such as oregano and thyme. Cats can not effectively metabolize phenols because they lack an enzyme in their liver to digest the phenols. Avoid Peace & Calming® essential oil blend on your cat, as it does contain phenols. Lavender and Roman Chamomile essential oils ARE safe for cats.

How to apply essential oils on dogs, horses and cats:

For calming dogs:

Mix 1 drop Lavender, Roman Chamomile or Peace & Calming® essential oil with 1 drop carrier oil.  Rub this mixture on your dogs pads, ears or comb through their fur.  Apply any time you sense your dog is stressed.

For calming horses:

Mix 1 drop Lavender, Roman Chamomile or Peace & Calming® essential oil with 1 drop carrier oil. Rub this mixture on your horse’s muzzle, ears or cornet bands. Apply any time your horse is stressed.

For calming cats:

Mix 1 drop Lavender or Roman Chamomile essential oil with 10 drops carrier oil. Rub this mixture on your cat’s pads, ears or comb through their fur. Apply any time your cat is stressed.

By the way, the essential oils in this article are also good for easing your anxieties, too!  Dilution is not required on humans.  Just apply a drop or two on your wrists, shoulders or behind your ears.

And the next time you’re opening up a bottle of lavender essential oil, share some with your animal friends!  They’ll thank you!

The Top 5 Things That Will Ruin Your Eye Sight and How to Avoid Them

[ad_1]

Currently the US population is about 300 million people, 75% of them, or about 225 million people wear corrective lenses whether they are glasses or contact lenses. That is an extremely high number, especially when compared to the statistics of 1980 where only 50% of the people wore glasses. That’s a 50% increase in just 30 years. Why is our eyesight getting worse and worse? Many are born with a less than perfect sphere for an eyeball and this is definitely a common reason for eye sight issues. The only known method to correct this problem is Lasik eye surgery; other than glasses and contact lenses, of course. However there are other things that we do that will cause this less than perfect vision. We will look at the top 5 reasons for this real concern and how to keep it from getting worse.

Focused staring is the number one reason for the loss of vision in America and most likely around the world. What does that mean? When you stare at something your eyes blink about 3 times slower than normal. So when you are watching TV, a movie at a theater, your computer screen, reading a book or staring at many other things, your eyes become dry and this creates damage to your eyes over time. There are things you can do to reduce the problem, other than avoiding these activities all together. When watching TV, take breaks during commercials. That doesn’t mean to stare at your computer screen during commercial breaks. Perhaps playing a hand or two with playing cards, it would the best if you could get a game that requires physical activity like play a game of ping pong, foosball, etc. a Nintendo WII would not help here; maybe get some fresh air outside; you can call someone, etc. Watching a movie at a theater is different. There are a few things you can do. You can buy the “tears” eyedrops, not the “get rid of the red” ones. Use that throughout your movie. Try to glance around the theater every once in a while. Maybe force yourself to take that annoying bathroom break during a slow part of the movie. You may have to get creative here but find something to do that doesn’t require you to stare at one unmoving object. Perhaps go to a play theater. You can apply these principles to your computer time, reading time, etc. A random fact, there is no evidence to suggest that reading in a darker causes any more damage than reading in a well-lit room.

The sun’s rays, or ultra-violet rays, are the number two reason for eye problems in our country. The ultra violet rays that come from the sun and tanning machines do massive damage to our eyes. Sunglasses with UV protection are an absolute requirement for everyone, in my opinion. The sun’s UV rays bounce off of many surfaces. They also pierce many surfaces. Just because you are turned away from the sun or are driving in your car doesn’t mean that you are protected from those damaging rays. In fact it is usually the most common situation where the sun’s damage takes place. I will also mention that it is crucial for you to wear eye protection when tanning. Closing your eyes does not stop the UV damage and in fact it is usually much worse because most of the time when we tan with our eyes closed, we lay in the direct rays of the sun or tanning machines, causing serious damage, much more than if we face away from sun.

As if there were not enough reasons to quit smoking tobacco. Smoking is the number three cause of loss of clear vision in America. Smoking cigarettes causes macular degeneration which is a problem where the part of our eye that sends the signals that it receives to the brain degenerates and less and less of the signal gets sent to the brain so our eye sight becomes poor. There is little else to say here except quit smoking, we all now know how horrible it is for us. This also includes snuff and chewing tobacco.

Injury to the eye is the fourth reason for loss of vision in America. It can be injured in a work environment with certain chemical gasses being in the air or pieces of debris flying into your eyes. It can be injured by contact sports with improper protection. A tackle without a helmet can cause very serious and likely to be permanent damage to the eye. Damage by fireworks and camp fire, specifically the sparks that fly out of the fireworks and camp fire can be the most dangerous kind because it happens so fast that even your eye lids may not have time to react. Then by the time that you can get to a hospital the damage is permanent and beyond repair. The only thing that can prevent this from happening is keeping a far away enough distance from the source of danger. You must also be vigilant in making sure that such fireworks are far enough away from children, which could be a difficult task since kids are usually very excited about fireworks and insist on playing with them.

Infections cause conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, and they can do damage to the eye and in severe cases even cause serious damage. Pink eye is a condition where a bacterial or a viral bug transfers to your eyes, most likely through using a towel or bedding that belongs to someone else. This is one of the reasons why we are told to not share towels, razors, and other personal items. If you do get infected you will need to go to a doctor to get a prescription. They do have an over-the-counter treatment, but it is not as effective.

Now that you know the things that you do in your daily life that cause your eyesight to get worse over time, you will be able to protect yourself. Keeping to these five steps will certainly help us, adults, to see better but it will be most beneficial when applied to our children before their eye sight is damaged.

How to Get Your Football Coach to Notice You and Get More Playing Time

[ad_1]

You go hard in your football training program…you do the conditioning…you get yourself mentally ready to play…then you still find yourself on the bench!

High School Football can be a brutal experience when your coach doesn’t know you exist…

We all want more playing time. If you’re a true competitor, you never want to leave the field…you want to be there to step up and make a big play when the game is on the line.

But, that’s tough to do if you’re on the bench!

We all go out and lift weights, condition, do speed training, football skill work… but, in some situations, especially in big High School programs, getting a shot at the starting line up can seem almost impossible. You may very well have 4 or 5 guys on a similar skill level (or better) at your position. If you want to beat those guys out, you’ve got to stand out. You may need to do a lot more than you’re currently doing…you may need to work harder than you ever thought possible…

Here are the 7-Steps you need to take to get your Football Coach to notice you and help get you more playing time!

1. Train Harder in the Weight Room

I’m constantly asked which football training workouts are best. Is there a magic answer? One program that will solve all your problems?

While some are better than others, the truth is, no matter how great a football training program is, if you don’t work hard, its all for nothing.

That’s something not a lot of guys are willing to accept. But, in most cases if you want to become a better football player and get your coach to think of you as a starter, you better be prepared to work harder than everyone else. I realize many players think they’re so friggin good that they don’t have to work hard. Good luck with that.

Guys like Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, Michael Irvin, LT, and Ray Lewis are notorious for their insane work ethics. They outwork their competition and the results speak for themselves.

There’s a famous story from the martial arts world about a student who was far behind his classmates in skill. He asked his master what to do and the master replied:

“You will train harder than everyone else. When your classmates are sleeping, you train. When they are taking meals, you train. When they take breaks, you train”

And, as the story goes, this student eventually surpassed all of them and became a legendary master of the arts.

Now, obviously, football training is hard and you can’t burn out. So, you have to rest and recover just as hard as you traing, but, the idea is the same. You must train harder than everyone else. If there’s one thing that I know for a fact that coaches notice, it’s hard work. If you’re on the bubble of being a major player and you work harder than the other guy, trust me, you’ll get the shot. (That’s how I did it)

2. Don’t Miss Workouts/Practices/Or Be Late

Unless someone died, do NOT miss workouts. Ever. Not if you feel sick, or your girlfriend is bustin your chops, or because you “just don’t feel like it today.” – I heard a guy once tell a coach that…needless to say, the coach’s head just about exploded.

If you miss workouts, you come off as lazy. That’s true in the eyes of strength coaches, position coaches, and head coaches alike…and, your fellow players will notice. No one wants to go into battle with a guy when you’re not sure you can count on him to show up.

If you’re really hurt, your coach will understand. He’ll tell you to take time off. But, don’t come up with a bunch of bullshit phantom injuries whenever you don’t feel like training.

Same goes for practice. Wanna lose a starting job or lose out on one? Don’t practice…even once. Trust me, someone will be there to steal it right away from you. Just because someone is your backup doesn’t mean you’re better…ask Tom Brady and Drew Bledsoe….and, if you’re the back up, POUNCE on any opportunity that you can get like this.

Never every be late to the weightroom, the practice field, meetings, film sessions. In fact, be 5 minutes early. If you’re on time, you’re late, as Tom Coughlin would say.

3. Study and Ask Questions

I’ve seen many a talented player get his ass put on the bench because he can’t figure out the plays. Or know left from right, or be able to figure out the signals. Don’t be that guy.

Seriously, I’ve seen running backs who were flat out studs not be able to play because they constantly run the wrong hole, to the wrong side, or can’t figure out blocking assignments. If you want your coach to notice you in a very bad way, try not knowing the plays.

And, study a bit on the strength training side as well. Learn a little, it won’t kill you.

Learn to study game film like its your job. Your film, your opponent’s game film, and film of players in your position who play at a higher level (college, pros, etc). Don’t just watch the film like you’re watching a game on Sunday afternoon….learn from it. Study it. Play it back a million times. Take notes.

If you are unsure about how to really break down film, ask your coach to help you. Trust me, they’ll be more than happy to help.

Watch your opponent. Does he tip pass plays with his stance? Does the other team always run out of a certain formation? Get to know this stuff. Notice tendencies and ask your coach about them. Again, they’ll be more than happy to help you with it. Every single coach I spoke to when working on this article agreed on this – they want players who understand the game and take the initiative to study film and learn – to go above and beyond what is required.

4. Everyday Hustlin

Football and Football Training – Always be Hustling…or this kid will take your job

Never. Stop. Hustling.

That’s true in football, training, life, business…never stop because the minute you do, someone will replace your ass.

Don’t walk on the field. Don’t lolligag through drills. Don’t half-ass it in the weightroom.

Hustle will get you noticed. If you’re on the bubble of being a starter, it could put you over the top. On the other hand, if you decide you have the job all to yourself and start loafing, you’ll lose that job faster than a set of keys.

Jerry Rice was famous for running every single pass route into the end zone during practice. Every route all the way in. This was all about finishing. Hustling. Never stopping. Bill Romonowski talks about how, in his rookie season, he observed Rice doing this, and, in order to get noticed both on the field and in film, would chase Rice down…all the way to the end zone. He was a starter by mid-season…As a rookie…on a Championship team.

5. Be The First

Simple. Always be first. First:

To jump in a drill
In the weightroom
In the film room
On the field

Being the first guy to jump into a drill, especially a contact drill like tackling, one-on-one’s, etc, will get you noticed in a hurry.

I often talk about how my good friend Matt Mazzoni and I would always…I mean always…be the first two guys out on any line drill. Didn’t matter that we were mis-matched in size. We got out and set the tempo for the entire line. Matt won the starting Center job from an upper classmen who was much bigger than him. It was his hard work in training camp that got him noticed.

6. Get Your Butt on Specials

This one will be short. It blows me the hell away how many guys who don’t start and complain about lack of playing time absolutely refuse to play special teams.

Talk about a guy who exemplifies everything Explosive Football Training is all about. Don Beebe chases down Leon Lett from 70-yards away to save a touchdown even when it didn’t matter. Beebe was a special teams stud who built a hell of a career through hard training and a never ending supply of hustle

I saw it a ton this season on my own team. Guys who had some talent but felt they weren’t getting a fair shot. They bitched and complained. But, when the coaches were putting special teams together, these guys hid. I don’t know if it was fear or they felt special teams were below them…doesn’t matter. They blew it.

Just as you have the entire football training off-season to prove yourself in the weightroom and in the conditioning program, you have special teams to show off your hard work by making some big plays. It’s pretty common in the NFL for guys to start off on Special Teams and eventually turn themselves into starters. Not everyone is a 1st round draft pick.

If you’re not getting a chance to shine, get your ass on special teams and go make a big block, a big hit and be consistently good. Force a fumble on Punt Team and see if the coaches don’t take notice.

7. Outwork, Outlast, Outperform

This is what we’ve been talkin about all along. Let’s not sugar coat things…if you want to be a starter, be prepared to work harder than everyone else.

Or, as the old saying goes, “Ya gotta pay your dues if you want to make the news, and you know it don’t come easy.”

Even if you’re not blessed genetically, get to work. Become the guy who is the poster child for the football training program. Be the guy everyone looks to for inspiration. Be the guy who doesn’t go easy in your workouts…who always shows up…who always goes all out.

Your teammates will respect you and the coaches will take notice.

Work your butt off on the field, in the weight room, in the film room…work hard, recover hard, eat well. Never stop.

And, be prepared to simply keep working hard no matter what. There will be set backs but you’ve got to keep pushing. You have to outlast. Sometimes you have to wait for an injury…or a chance to make a big special teams play…whatever it is, be patient, and, when your time comes, hold nothing back. Do this and your coaches will notice and you’ll find yourself as a starter.

When you are trying to reach your goals with body exercises you will always need a good supplement product to help you improve in every aspect of your body exercises. The same goes for penis exercises because you also need great supplements for great results.

Below are a few minerals and vitamins that you need to take that will help you increase the size of your penis. Taking both of these things everyday will help maximize the blood flow in your penile area. When more blood flow is increased to your penile area, your erections will be much harder, thicker and longer then before. Doing exercises alone will help increase blood flow but doing them with vitamins and minerals makes the process twice as effective.

When trying to maximize the flowing of your blood these are some of the best vitamins and minerals that you can use to do that. These supplements do not only help increase the size of your penis but they are also very good for helping your overall health to improve..

L- Lysine – (Also gives you more vibrant skin, stronger bones, better digestion and more.)

Ginkgo Bilboa (Also gives your brain extra energy, heals wounds quicker, stops blood clots, stops yellowing of the nails and more.)

Zinc (Also gives you stronger blood cells, better muscle growth, gets rid of fat and more.)

Ginseng (Also gives you stronger immune system, better stamina, more flexible bones, reduces hair loss and more.)

Super B Complex (Also helps you heal wounds quicker, gets rid of bad bacteria, stops yellowing of teeth, healthier skin, whitens eyes and more.

Multi Mens Vitamins (Also gives you faster muscle growth, stronger bones, healthier ligaments, flexible tendons and more.)

Everything I have listed above is all natural and they will all help you increase the blood flow to your penis area.

Natural Penis Exercises – How To Exercises Properly

The first step to exercising properly is warming up. The warm up allows your body to get ready for all the intense exercises you will be doing. Warming up should never be skipped when attempting to do natural penis exercises. Some men try to skip the warm up because they think it’s not important but they soon find out that warming up is essential.

When exercising it’s always best to take it easy. A lot of men exercise very roughly and this can lead to a lot of problems. The best thing to do is to do it in a very comfortable speed so that you actually enjoy the exercises better. The last important thing to remember about these natural penis exercises is to always use lubrication. Lubrication is very important if you want to see maximum results and avoid injury.

If You Have to Wear Your Winter Coat, You Shouldn’t Be Wearing Sandals!

[ad_1]

During our last week of a glorious trip to Florida, as the weather began to warm up there…..the temperatures “skyrocketed” so to speak in Nova Scotia. Record temperatures…..24 degrees Celsius on Easter Sunday, the 4th of April for heavens sake. Who would ever have thought it? What woman, who has yearned to breakout those peep toe shoes to bare her toes that have been hibernating for a rather mild winter, wouldn’t want to break out her favourite sandals or open toed shoes? Of course, why ever not? It only makes sense. Or does it?

Here’s the issue: As we know this “heat spell” is merely a stroke of luck, a tease of Mother Nature, if you will. I don’t want to be a kill joy here, but, we all know, it most likely won’t last. For the most part it hasn’t. Less than a week after Easter, the temperatures dip to a more seasonable high of 8-12 degrees with sun and on occasion, an incredible amount of wind. Making for a rather brisk day likened more to late Fall than early Spring. Gone are the shorts and t-shirts with perhaps a light sweater. Thoughts of going to the beach fade away as reality hits.

Now, I ask you, what would the sensible woman do? Well, in my opinion, put away the open toe shoes and dawn a more reasonable pair of flats, without socks or your favourite fall boot with no stockings. There’s plenty of time for your favourite slides and peep toes. Ladies, if you have to dig your wool winter coat out again, even for such a short time, dig out the closed toe shoes as well. I declare right now: If you have to wear your winter coat, put the sandals away! You don’t have to bury them deep in the closet, just put them to one side. Still within easy reach, but until the timing, and temperature is more suitable

I know I know, it seems harsh, but it’s reality ladies. If you arms and torso are so cold, you need to wear a coat, your feet must feel the same way. It’s fashion logic. It’s like wearing a bathing suit, with winter boots, you wouldn’t do that, would you? Then whey are you wearing Roman sandals with your faux fur three quarter coat? I actually saw that, this week. I believe we reached a day time high of around 13 degrees and the wind? Brrrrrrrr.

No one appreciates more than I do, the joy of showing off those fantastic strappy wedges you got for half price at your favourite outlet mall. There is however, a time and a place. Wearing opposing season clothing at the same time is just not fashion savy. There are always exceptions, such as cotton tank under a favourite merino wool cardi. But, your heavy suede button down with the pair of leather strappys you got on your European vacation is a clear violation of the code of fashion.

This is a phenomenon I’ve also seen in the Fall. It’s a warm, Indian Summer, try as you might, you just don’t want to give up your cork wedges that look great with a pair of jeans. It’s a downright clash with your new lambs wool pullover. Time to break out your new chocolate brown riding boots!

As I said, I know, the winter is long and we are all dying to show off some skin, but let’s face it, if we’ve waited this long, we can wait a little longer. My advice to you? Use those unusually warm early Spring days to test drive some old favourites in your closet: Do those 2 year old Bermudas still fit right? Have they lost their structure? Can you get another season out of that light cotton ¾ sleeve linen cardigan? Take the time to get reacquainted with your Spring/Summer wardrobe. Savour, launder, and sort what you love and is worth another season. Purge what you can do without. Maybe wear a favourite item or two. Keep the peep toes in the closet until the forecast calls for days upon days of mid teens to high 20s. Trust me, your fellow fashionistas will admire you for your devotion to appropriate seasonal choices. Those who aren’t as aware of the “rules” as you are, can maybe learn a thing or two.

Work From Home – Do Not Misstep

[ad_1]

Nowadays, if you want to work from home, you do not have to look too far. This was not always the case, however. Major advancements in the World Wide Web have put us in a position to earn a full-time living from our home computer. The fact of the matter is that individuals have gone from earning below the median annual income, to earning incomes in the top ten percent due to home business. Just keep in mind that there is nothing automatic about work from home success. With that being said, we will discuss some of the things that you must look out for below.

1. Create a Business Plan From the Start

A business plan should be the first order of business. After all, how can you get somewhere that you have not been before without directions. With that being said, do not become deterred by the thought of having to create a business plan. Your plan does not have to be anything elaborate. Rather, it just needs to identify your short-term and long-term goals, as well as how you will accomplish such goals, and the significance of doing so. It should also identify your target market, what problems this market faces, and what solutions you can provide in the form of a product.

2. Registering a Domain, Designing a Website, Getting Hosting

These are all critical factors to any online business. When it comes to your domain name, you want something that is easy to remember. Shorter and pronounceable is usually better. If you can include a keyword which is highly relevant to your target market, that helps too. Keep in mind that your website is the storefront to your online business. This is what your customers are going to base their first impressions of your business on. Therefore, you need to present a professional image by having a professional website. As far as hosting goes, the best hosting companies are not those which have irrelevant commercials running on television. Do your research, read reviews, and find the best plan for your work from home business.

3. The Right Product is Essential

One thing that you have to love about the internet is the fact that you do not even need your own product to make money. We have affiliate marketing to thank for this. Essentially, affiliate marketing enables you to promote products which belong to others, and earn a commission every time you make a sale. Of course, you must be certain to only promote products which will be of value to your niche market.

4. Keep Your Full-Time Job For Now

If you have been wanting to work from home for a while now but have not pulled the trigger, you have probably been bombarded with schemes that claim overnight success. Do not buy into this fantasy. There is no such thing as overnight success online. As such, you will have to work hard and be consistent overtime to experience a degree of success which will enable you to leave your full-time job. This is important to know up front in the event that you are not willing to put forth such an effort.

5. Become Self-Educated

You must know your niche market inside and out in order to adequately assess their needs. This is how you will build a relationship with your market. Also, make sure that you keep up to date on all of the marketing tools which are available to your work from home business. This is how you will stay ahead of the competition.
