Home Business Issues – Would You Knowingly Do Business With a Flake?

Seriously if you had advance knowledge that one of your peers or vendors had credibility issues would you proceed to do business with them? By credibility there are degrees that range from just not being on time for deadlines to more serious issues like not paying debts or repeatedly not delivering on promises.

keep straight

Note that word ‘repeatedly’ – stuff does happen once in a while. We are all human and things can transpire that are actually beyond our control. So don’t make snap judgments – cut people some slack. However if it becomes a pattern where there are frequently issues that are inconvenient to you, then you should really start reconsidering your decision to work with this person or company.

Remember the saying ‘birds of a feather flock together’. Even if you are reasonably straight in your business transactions, if you associate with people who have credibility issues you may be considered as one in the same. People may wonder if they can trust you either.

Again it can happen to anyone that we join a program that tanks or worse has some legal issues that end up costing people. If nothing else, the fact that this can happen to perfectly innocent people should tell us that we need to do some research before we join a program. We should also keep checking periodically for any indications that there may be trouble coming.

You know the saying ‘if it sounds too good to be true it probably is’. Really apply some logic and read up on the various infamous scams. Ask yourself – does this sound like that? If yes, you probably don’t want to get involved. Do consider however, that a small detail may make it different, so you should ask the company directly if you have any doubt either way.

Not saying believe every rumor but you as an intelligent adult should be able to tell the difference between some wild rumor and several comments or reviews which seem to be pointing to the same direction. You can choose to hang in there and see what actually happens, and risk losing a little money on the opportunity should it be the worst case scenario; or you can take your money and go before it comes down to that.

Working at Home – Escape from Your Computer

All dedicated computer users probably understand what it is like to be really engrossed in whatever computer activity we might be involved in and unable or unwilling to stop even momentarily. However it is important to understand how seriously unhealthy it is not to get up regularly to rest the pressure that is being put on your entire skeletal system.


No leaning

You really need to get your circulation going by moving around. This can take the form of short walks around your house, or some type of stretching exercise. It doesn’t have to be longer than a few minutes every hour or two but should definitely not be ignored.

At the same time you should be aware that your eyes need to rest as well. There is one exercise that involves looking at something as far away as possible (out a window for example). Focus on that for a few minutes. Your eyes will not be stuck at whatever distance is between you and your computer monitor. You can also alternate this with just closing your eyes for a few minutes to rest them.

None of these suggestions are remotely close to ‘slacking’ – they are necessary to maintain your good health. Look at it like if you were in too much back pain to work. Your neck is stiff, your lower back is painful, and you are not able to stand it after a while and must take time off to recuperate. This represents lost productivity and consequently income in addition to ruining your health.

If you do abuse your spine, one thing that is very effective and much healthier than pain pills or even OTC pain remedies is to get an ice pack – Ideally one of those that usually has a blue gel and is reusable indefinitely. It lives in your freezer and you take it out and use it for not more than 20-minutes on the same spot off and on.

Three more tips you should be aware of to alleviate some of the strain on your lower back that comes from too much sitting, etc., are as follows:

#1 Employ some sort of a footstool (a phone book works). You will feel right away how you are more comfortable not straining;

#2 Be sure that your computer keyboard and mouse are exactly in a straight line with your hands. This means no reaching up or down and straining your wrist and neck;

#3 Your monitor should be exactly at eye level – again this is no straining to look up or down. It should naturally be straight ahead.

If you want further information – just Google ‘ergonomics’.

Work at Home – Always Be Early or On Time

Especially if you are taking your home business seriously, you will want to be proactive. If you really expect to earn an income online you will need to be engaged in your business. Once you get your website or affiliate link online, that is not all there is to it.


Use your time wisely!

On ‘Autopilot’ does not mean there is nothing to do. You should implement as many things as you can to promote your business. What is true about autopilot is that you do not have to be online to make a sale.

The affiliate programs will handle your transactions and will give you a report of your commissions earned. Technically you can make sales 24-hours a day because your links and advertising are always running on the world-wide-web (globally).

So once you get everything set up you just need to check to be sure here are no system errors that are preventing your site(s) to display. You also need your hosting account to be running and that your domain name registration is current. (website)

It is also important that you check your reports at the affiliate programs to be sure that there are no problems with members or payments either to you or to your customers. It may be critical because people will just quit the program if they don’t understand something, or they may decide not to join in the first place.

If you know you have things you need to do, try not to wait for the deadline. If you can accomplish some tasks in the meantime this would always be best. Stay ahead of the game.

You do not know in the near future that you will encounter obstacles that you need to resolve before you can move forward. If you have to rush everything it is an environment where errors are more likely to occur as a result.

Really the bottom line is that you like having a home business and you may even enjoy doing all the necessary procedures. This will be a lot more possible if you take an organized approach. You may find that in the spare time you created by being proactive, that you may now expand your portfolio of opportunities. You have time.
