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.

Motivational Speeches to Supercharge Your Mind

A YouTube Playlist to reprogram your mind

For several months I listened to hundreds of YouTube Clips of motivational speeches. I decided to compile a playlist for myself with the absolute best. Talks, concepts, and ideas that make me realize new things every time I listen to them.
I want to share these with you. I aspire to help you reprogram your mind and find new energy you did not even know you had.
Play the list while you are walking, sitting on a bus, a subway or just while you are cleaning at home. Keep your body busy and make your mind available for new ideas.

Most know nothing about their customers

Here are some thought-provoking questions for you.

How many times have you started a new job and within the first week you are trained and educated about the customer. What jobs the customer has. What pains they want to avoid and what gains they are looking for. How much research material about the customer did you receive and were able to read? Did you read extensive buyer persona material?
I think it is safe to assume that you most likely did not receive any training or read any material at any of your jobs. There is one exception.

Make Your Attitudes Your Allies

Can You Read Minds?

Reading mind is easier than you think. Perhaps you’ve never thought of it, but you read the mind of other your mind, every day.

How do we do it? We do it automatically, through attitude appraisals.

Remember the song “You Don’t Need to Know the Language to Say You’re in Love”? Bing Crosby made it famous many years ago. There’s a whole bookful of applied psychology packed into those simple lyrics. You don’t need to know the language to say you’er in love. Anyone who’s ever been in love knows that.

And you don’t need to know any language to say “I like you” or “I despise you”or “I think you’re important” or “unimportant” or “I envy you.” You don’t need to know words or to use words to say “I like my job” or “I’m bored” or “I’m hungry”. People speak without a sound. How we think shows through in how we act. Attitudes are mirrors of the mind. They reflect thinking.

You can read the mind of the fellow sitting at a desk. You sense, by observing his expressions and mannerisms, how he feels toward his job. You can read the minds of salesmen, students, husbands, and wives; you not only can you do. The expert actors those in demand in movies and television year after year in a sense are not actors at all. They don’t play their roles. Instead they lose their own identity and actually think and feel like the character they are playing. They’ve got to. Else they’d look phonies and their ratings would plunge.

Attitudes do more than show through. They “sound” through too. A secretary does more than identify an office when he says, “Good morning, Mr. Shoemaker’s office . In just five words one secretary says, “I like you. I’m glad your’re calling. I think you are important. I like my job.”

1. Personal Shopper

Do you often get praised for your eye for fashion trends? Are you someone who friends and family come to for clothing advice? Personal shopping can be a business that builds on those skills. Personal shoppers find clothing items for clients who are struggling to find their personal style. Duties involve evaluating your client’s wardrobe, visiting websites, and picking items that will suit them. There are all sorts of products on all kinds of Online clothing boutiques so you don’t necessarily have to shop offline to get this business started. Plus, you don’t need to hold any special certification or degree to become a personal shopper. If your interests lie in business ideas with low investment, personal shopping might be the ideal route to consider.

2. Online Tutoring

If you’re an expert in art, maths, or another subject, you can start the business of online tutoring. An essential prerequisite is having a bachelor’s degree in the subject you intend to teach, so make sure to cover this area before you get started. You can find online tutoring clients on sites like Skooli and tutor.com. For the best results, always teach subjects that relate to your area of expertise because you’ll be able to share your skills and constructive knowledge to enhance

the learning experience. You can deliver lectures and interact with your students over Skype, making online tutoring one of the easiest online businesses to start.  

3. Greeting Cards

Greeting cards are always in style, so if you have a good eye for design or just love showcasing your artwork on physical items, this is one of the best creative business ideas for you. Before you can start looking for clients, you’ll need to have a handful of designs ready to go. Tools like Photoshop and canva make it easy to create custom card designs. Additionally, you’ll need to stock up on supplies required to create greeting cards (ink, paper, etc.). Here’s a pro tip: if you want to keep costs low, buy your supplies from a wholesaler. Once you have the inventory sorted, start generating revenue by marketing your business on Facebook, Etsy, and other similar platforms.

4. Software Education

Do you have acquaintances who lack proficiency in computer software? If so, you can set up your own software education business and enroll students on a monthly basis. Pupils might include entrepreneurs looking to build on their IT skills, or other small business owners looking to master software like Excel and PowerPoint. If you have the expertise, you can lead from the front by teaching most of the classes. As your business grows and more people sign up for your programs, you can hire freelance software experts to teach students based on their area of expertise. Although you can rent out space for classroom lectures, consider hosting virtual classes to keep costs low and expand your business to international markets. 

5. Meals-to-go

Seriously, there is no end to the line of people who struggle to find time to cook nutritious and healthy meals. This has led to a rise in meals-to-go-businesses offering all kinds of cuisine options. You can capitalize on this trend by starting your own meals-to-go business right in your city, state, or neighborhood. Contrary to the popular belief, you don’t actually need to invest in designing a large commercial kitchen. A meals-to-go business can also be managed from a shared rental kitchen. These places are usually equipped with all the essential supplies and can be rented by the month, day, or hour. You can find shared-use, licensed commissary kitchens through websites like the kitchen door.

A Motivational Speech

A Motivational Speech inspires audience members to make a change. If you’re very passionate on a particular subject, audience members will be able to feel your energy. It’s important to plan your speech out in advance, to ensure your message is both clear and appropriate for the audience you’re addressing and to ensure it creates a deep impact.

Clear Purpose

If you’re trying to motivate people to do something, it’s important to make the intended behavior clear. The level of explanation required may vary according to the topic of the speech. Provide enough information to give audience members a complete understanding of what you would like them to do and how they can get started. For example, if you’re giving a motivational speech to inspire the audience to quit smoking, clearly say you believe smoking is harmful to one’s health and offer tips to break the habit.

Personal Story

Include at least one personal story in your speech to which audience members can relate. Hearing your story will help inspire listeners and allow them to feel empowered to make a change. When you share your own success story, it adds a personal touch that allows listeners to really understand the impact making the change can have on their live. Your passion for the subject matter will really shine through as it has had such a deep impact on your life

Audience Fit

A motivational speech is most effective when it is tailored to fit the audience. Different groups of people may respond better to a variety of diverse delivery methods. Listeners who are already knowledgeable on a particular subject matter may quickly become bored if too much background information is provided, while others with little prior knowledge will be lost without it. Other issues such as cultural and geographical factors should also be taken into consideration when preparing the speech.

Who couldn’t use a few of the best motivational speeches for entrepreneurs?

Business can be hard. Heck, life can be hard.

We’re all on a journey, and we’ve all been down in the dumps before, wondering if what we’re doing is really worth it.

Wondering if what we’re doing is really making an impact.

But, it’s important that we’re always moving forward. This is a lesson that I learned early in life.

I remember I was around 4 years old, and I was learning to ride my bike with my uncle and my father.

Of course, I fell off multiple times while I was learning to cycle, and I remember the time I cut my knee pretty badly.

At that point I really just wanted to quit and go home. But, my family told me: “you can’t quit now, you’re almost there. Just try it once more!”

You’ve probably heard that before too, right?

You’ve probably heard that before too, right?

So, I got back on that bike. I didn’t want to, but you just need to power through and face your challenges head-on.

Sure enough, that was the first time that I rode that bike without any help.

After that, I was so glad I kept moving forward and that I never gave up.

Now, that probably wasn’t the motivational speech that you expected when you clicked on this article, but it’s evidence that we can do so much more than we think we’re capable of when we’re spurred on by others.

Brain Hacks to Boost Your Motivation

You sit down at your computer intending to work on your next project or task, then procrastination sets in. Two hours later, you realize you still have not begun the task in earnest. Why is it so easy to shrug something off, even when you know the job must get done?

Each type of motivation can be effective. Internal motivation is thought to work best in the long run, but external motivation can be a useful tool in some cases, such as prompting you to complete a task or assignment that doesn’t internally interest you.

The secret is knowing how to tap into both types of motivations to overcome procrastination and be more proactive. To help you do that, here are 5 brain hacks to boost motivation and stay productive, even when distractions abound.

  1. Tap into your bigger purpose.

When you find your motivation is lacking, try focusing on the purpose behind what you are doing or on how it plays into the larger goal of what you want to accomplish. Focusing on the bigger goal gives you the feeling of working on something greater and being part of something bigger than yourself. It gives deeper meaning to the objective you seek or the project you are putting long hours into.

  1. Don’t over thinks it

Overthinkers complicate an easy task by anticipating unlikely problems. When you overthink a project you are working on, it creates more stress and pressure. Ultimately, it obstructs your motivation. To counter a tendency to overthink a problem, make sure to keep your goals simple and small. This will break your objectives into more manageable chunks. Focus on accomplishing each step. This in turn creates motivation, because you see yourself moving forward and accomplishing your goals.

  1. Strengthen Your good memories

Another way to tap into your natural motivation is to strengthen those memories where you are succeeding and accomplishing your goals. By doing this, you can enhance and encourage your motivation and inspiration. To do this, recall as vividly as you can a fulfilling memory of succeeding or accomplishing your goals. Imagine this memory as if it were being projected on a huge IMAX screen. Make the memory bright and loud. Now increase the positive feelings that you experienced, just like turning up a dial.

Do this 5 or 10 times, and you’ll discover that what was once just a positive memory is now a driving motivation. The more you experience the memory, the more you’ll want to relive it and make it real again.

A Dreamy Boy

Every Personality has something that would be fulfilled in his own life. That is called the aim or target of life. The main target of life is one which makes you uncomfortable and let your sleeplessness. Whenever you are sleeping and in your dreams, your target hit your unconscious mind and your get-up and think yourself but no reason for your awaking that is your target/aim/objective of life.

All living things having a well-minded brain and think themselves, have aims in their life. The most well-minded and well-featured mind containing multicellular animal is Homo-Sapiens (Human). All humans have their feelings and ambitions in their life.

Three types of humans are given below with the difference of action. The first type of peoples is that just dream but no action or startup to achieve their goals. The second type of people are those having two or more dreams/targets but the result is zero, although they work hard, The reason is that they cannot be continuous with their one dream. They took short time for each dream. The third type of peoples having dreams which may be two or more but they dream each other.

The result is awesome in their life, because one or more targets may fulfil the given criteria and renowned by the world of that personality. Their regular task is to struggle hard. As my concern about the dream of life or aim of life then I’m having the third category. I have almost enough ambitions each one would go with my 1 year of life then I will die in fulfilling my aims. The biggest dream of my life is that when I will on my death-bed and I will think my own whole life that I had spent, a smile on my face will answer everyone that “I am satisfied with my life.” That is my motivation besides this I have a plan of ambitions. These are not just ambitions instead my life is nothing without those things.

In Murree

I hope to give my ambitions very real thoughts and practicals. There is almost every dream about my life given below.

  • Automobile, Home, and a very beautiful loving better-half.
  • A well-managed business that gives me about 1000 million.
  • SG welfare community will go top class all around the world.
  • I will be renowned in the world.
  • I will have enough strong heart that my mind will not think about giving money to the poor and the needy.
  • I want true friends which are sincere with me and accept my the who I am.
  • My Sons and daughters will respect me and give themselves a good and well personality and have sympathy for others. They will know each and everything about Islam.
  • I will give the best quality of education to the dedicated students who have talent but not have enough resources.
  • I want to travel across the world.
  • About all when I will die the smile beautiful my face and with the glowing face I say to myself that my objective of what I have when I born is fulfill. Now its time to Good-by.

These are my sweet dreams which want Hard-work, dedication discipline, consistency and about all I’m alive. Everything is possible under the sun but you may have encouraged and zeal to do something. my dear, you can ruin the roles of the world. People think about me is that he is mental, a dreamy boy and a psycho. I laugh at themselves. Being a Home-sapiens I have a well-minded brain which thinks about what is right about what is not right for us.

I have great challenges which sometimes disturb my life-style but I know about ho to stand. I take challenges as a good opportunity. That is what most successful personalities have the ability.

Let’s see what I can do for all that is mentioned above.

Anyway thanks for giving me your precious time.

Thanks for everything.

5 Personal Habits of Successful People

Photo by Andrea Piacquadio on Pexels.com

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.

6 Tips to Boost Confidence/Building self-Esteem/ Build self Confidence

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.
