Need Business Ideas?

1. ACCOUNTANT
Experience, training or licensing may be needed

Create a flier outlining your services. Before you do that, you need to know what those services will be. Do you want to simply do bookkeeping for a small business? A more involved level of accounting would be to work up balance sheets, income statements, and other financial reports on a monthly, quarterly, and/or annual basis, depending on the needs of the business. Other specializations can include tax accounting, a huge area of potential work. 

2. BICYCLE REPAIR

In many parts of the country, this business tends to be seasonal, but you can find ways around that. Rent a storage unit and offer to store people’s bicycles over the winter after you do a tune-up and any needed repairs on them. If you want to cater to the Lance Armstrong wannabes, you can have business all year round. These road race riders are training through snow, sleet and dark of night. Some of them work on their own bicycles, but many of them don’t, so you can get their business all year. And if you keep Saturday shop hours, you can be sure you will have a group of enthusiasts coming by to talk about things cycling.

3. BOAT CLEANING
Experience, training or licensing may be needed

Boats that are hauled out of the water for the winter or even just for mid-season repairs will need the hull cleaned. And depending on the type of boat, it is a good time to give a major cleaning to everything else too-the decks, the sleeping quarters and the holds. Start by approaching homes that have a boat sitting in the yard. Or you could market your services to the marina to contract you to do the boat cleaning it offers to customers.

4. BUSINESS PLAN SERVICE
Has expansion possibilities

Offer a soup-to-nuts business plan, including market research, the business plan narrative and the financial statements. Plan your fee around the main one that the client will want and offer the others as add-on services. You can give clients an electronic file and allow them to take it from there, or you can keep the business plan on file and offer the service of tweaking it whenever necessary. Have business plan samples to show clients and made sore to include your own.

5. Cleaning Service

There are many directions you can take this business. If you want to work during hours when no one else does, you can focus on office clients. You can focus on retail businesses and keep your customers clumped into one or two blocks. Restaurants are in great need of daily thorough cleaning and can be a great source of steady clients. Perhaps you would be more interested in house cleaning. Many times with cleaning services you don’t have to spend lots of money on advertising or marketing because your customers will come by word of mouth.

5 Personal Habits of Successful People

1. Seek new experiences and learning

Expanding our horizons make us happier. And successful people are quite aware of it. As intelligent beings created for good and beauty, we are meant for a constant life of development and enrichment. Living, experiencing, and growing our knowledge about life, the world and all its wonders, work positively on one’s personal development. Research from San Francisco state university  has proven how people who spent money on experiences rather than material items are simply happier. 

This does not just mean traveling the world with a backpack—despite how fashionable it has become. There are many different ways to expand our perspective, depending on our own character and tastes. The only thing to keep in mind is that leaving our comfort zone and acquiring a life long learning approach is the master key to positive accomplishment.

2. Find happiness in the success of others

Successful people do compare themselves with those ones that are better. But they do it from a perspective of admiration and positive emulation. They identify in others skills and talents they lack and they work towards developing these—but not out of competitiveness or jealousy. Successful people are aware of the adverse effects and lack of results derived from enviousness and resentment. They compete exclusively with the best version of themselves. Never with others. They have role models, not rivals. 

3. Empathy

Successful people are incredibly empathetic. They create a world full of friends that help them, admire them, and accompany them. They listen to others and care about others. They know that after all, the road to success is never an isolated one. They are aware they need to rely on others to get where they need to get. Empathy, as the skill allowing us to put ourselves on others shoes and positively connecting with them, is a crucial tool for leadership and ultimate performance.

4. Lifestyle

Successful people do not think in terms of work/life balance. They just think in terms of “life.” They know they have only one, and they have committed to living it to the fullest. They design their own lifestyle. They enjoy what they do. They work very hard, but they are not married to their job. They follow a life-flow they can be proud of.

5. Challenge

Successful people do always have something to prove to themselves. They are driven by challenge. They are challenge-makers. Challenge develops mental toughness, stands down fear,  inspires courageous acts, tests the limits, focuses attention, matures perspective, and builds self-confidence. It’s through challenges that successful people find opportunities. It’s through challenges that successful people set ambitious goals to be achieved. It’s through challenges that successful people grow, develop and flourish.

1. CHALLENGE BAD THOUGHTS ABOUT YOURSELF

Replace them with more positive thoughts which celebrate things you’re good at. You can do this by writing down a list of at least three things you do well.

Remember this list when you start feeling low, this will help bring yourself back to reality.

2. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF

Eating well and exercising boosts endorphins, the body’s natural opiates, which make you feel good on the inside and stimulates a more positive mood.

When you exercise, you’ll ease stress and feel better about yourself. Having a cheesy dance in your bedroom, or going for a jog around the block are great ways to boost your self-esteem.

3. RELAX

The constant feeling of stress can play a huge role in low self-esteem. It makes you feel negative thoughts more often, it reduces your confidence and you’ll probably feel too tired to exercise, be social or do a lot of the things you love.

Reducing your stress by taking time out to do something you find relaxing is a great starting point to making yourself feel be anything from taking as you name it, if it to works for you, it works!

4. SET GOALS

This can be as simple as finishing off a piece of work or tidying up (and we all know how challenging this can be!)

You’ll feel an enormous sense of accomplishment when you’ve ticked off everything on your list for the day.

The trick is to not get bogged down by the list; some days you won’t manage to get it all done and that’s OK too! We all have off days, maybe make a shorter list for the next day and see how you get on?

5. HELP SOMEONE OUT

This can be a friend, family member or even a classmate who is struggling with their work or having a tough time at school. You could give them some advice or just be there to listen to a problem.

It’s amazing how much our confidence is boosted when we do selfless things – do one thing a week to help someone else without expecting anything in return.
