Marketing For A Failing Business Can Hel...

1415239_money_trading_1Being self-employed and owning your own business takes a lot of work.  The fruit of your labor can be seen, by how well your business prospers.  Yet, though you have put in a lot of hard work, somehow your business just isn’t making it.  Vince Lombardi once said “Practice doesn’t make perfect.  Perfect practice makes perfect.”  In business, this is just as true.  It’s now how hard you work for your business, but working hard the right way for your business.”  Most often businesses will fail, not because of the products or services your business offers. Usually, failure comes from a lack of business focus and organization. Your business might need to revamp it’s business plan….wait, you never did a business plan?  What about a marketing plan? No marketing plan either? What about your credit rating?  Bad credit also?  You can still take out small personal loans for bad credit if you need them. If you have no organization to your business, you might as well treat it like the raven rapping on your window.  That tap tap tapping on your chamber door, as your business becomes NEVERMORE!

Develop A Business Plan

This is something you should have done on day one, when you conceived the idea of starting your business.  It’s okay to change your business plan as you go along. Businesses will grow and evolve, so it’s a good idea to revisit your business plan, from time to time.  Business plans will identify your target market, how to market to the people you are trying to reach, as well as projected income.


This does not mean how you advertise.  These days advertising is not just arbitrarily taking out space in the newspaper or airtime on  radio or television.  Or passing out promotional products like custom Nalgenes water bottles.  With every dollar counting, you cannot throw your money away.  Marketing is the whole package of what you are trying to sell.  It’s how you communicate what your business is.  It’s the art of, how you sell your business and the products your business is trying to sell.  It is the entire strategy of promoting your product or service and how the customers sees you.  A good marketing plan will target the demographic of who you are trying to reach.  In other words, if you sell custom chopper motorcycles, your target market will not be seniors, in assisted living retirement communities.  A good marketing plan does not waste money unnecessarily, by just taking out ads. It’s not the number of views or reads.  Instead, look at the product you are trying to sell, who you are trying to sell to, develop a marketing plan and sales will increase, when you reach your true target market.


Read A Favorite Book In Greek...


If you are fascinated with the Greek culture, you likely have done quite a bit of research on the different books that the culture has to offer and probably have a favorite story or book that was written in Greek.  Even more than that, depending on your level of interest in Greek culture, you may even want to read the book in Greek so that you can get everything out of it that the author meant you to.

The Problem With Translations

Anytime a foreign language book is translated into English, it seems that some details get lost in the translation.  If you translated a book from English to Greek, the same problem would arise as when a book was translated from Greek to English, or any other language, for that matter.  The problem is that translations rely on a translator who, even if he is the best, bases his translation on his understanding.  With many languages, some words or ideas cannot be easily translated to other languages, so the reader winds up getting a bit of an abridged version.  If you truly want to get everything out of a foreign language book, it is always a good idea to read it in its original text, if possible.

Finding The Book

Luckily, with the internet, finding your favorite Greek literature in the language it was written shouldn’t be a problem.  Online book stores such as Barnes and Noble and Amazon have made it easy to get your hands on pretty much any book that you could imagine, in as many languages as they are available.  Even Ebay is a good place to start to find that book you are looking for. And use when you’re done reading your new book.

Considering the mythology of Ancient Greece and its rich history, it is easy to see why someone could become enamored with the culture.  Reading a Greek book in the language that it was intended to be read not only shows an appreciation and love of the culture, but will also give you an insight into what the author was thinking, not what the translator thought he was thinking.


Shop Around and Save Money on Your Presc...

1327605_eyeglassesHave you recently gone to purchase eyeglasses?  Have you seen the prices, just for the frames?  Add to that the cost of the lenses, the exam and all the other little extras and that could add up to your next mortgage payment.  Eye care is not cheap these days.  Many general insurance plans will not even cover eye care, unless you add on a separate policy.  In some states, you cannot even replace the frames and keep the old lenses, if it has been over a certain length of time between exams.  Fortunately, times have changed.  Gone are the days where you saw your local eye doctor and had to settle on whatever frames they had available.  Usually everyone came out looking like Buddy Holly.  Although, those glasses are making a fashion comeback!  Competition, in the field of eye exams and eye glasses, has brought about many changes, including lower cost eye exams, more variety and lower cost frames.  But you have to shop around, in order to find these deals.  No longer is it as time consuming as looking through the phone book.  New methods have made it easier to shop around, for quality low cost eye wear.  Online resources, such as buy prescriptions from Canada are a great way to save time and money, on your eye care prescriptions.

Getting Started

Before you begin the task of looking for new eye wear check, first see if you insurance covers some or all of the cost, for the office visit and/or the glasses themselves.  Sometimes, you may not even realize what your policy has for you.  Put your HSA or FSA to work, if you have extra funds in them, at the end of your tax year.  Once you have scheduled your eye exam and have received your specific prescription, getting the frames just became a lot easier.  With your prescription in hand, you can then shop around for the best deals on frames and lenses.

Getting Your Eyeglasses

With the internet, shopping for quality frames and lenses is a lot faster.  The nice thing about shopping on line is the convenience of looking at different sellers, through the web, who are often less expensive than the regular stores.  You can also try warehouse clubs and discount stores, to see what they might have on sale.  Take advantage of special offers and coupons.  Be sure and look for free repair or replacement plans, if your glasses are broken, lost or stolen.
