Work, Work and more Work!

I've been tapping away on my computer for the afternoon. The weekend is coming up - maybe I'll do something a little different.

Kind of missed being outside to day - there is a lot that has to be done!

A travel business

I have a website for my travel business and only a few hits have occurred. Any suggestions on getting traffic there.

Well first of all you should start with what you already have. Of those hits that you are getting where are they coming from? How did they get to your page?

#2 - Optimize your page(s) so that they get placed higher in the rankings of the search engines.

#3 - Identify your target market. Who is most likely to buy your services? I have seen many posts from travel agents that have said that their business is slow to dead yet I have seen articles and heard on television about travel agents that have more work than they can handle. How do they do it? If you're really serious about wanting to make your travel business successful then you're going to have to start to treat it seriously. Since you want it to be your source of income (and a good income I'm assuming) then you're going to have to take a good look at it and get the ideas that will help you sell it to others. You'd be surprised at how many ideas will come to you if you just leave it for a day - take a break and put it out of your mind - then come back the next day and take a good look at it.

Define your target market and then go after them - both online and off!

Why Would Anyone Want To Work From Home?

Well let's see.......hmmmm................

Probably the number one reason is because they want to be their own boss! Working the hours that they want to, working the days that they want to. And its kind of ironic that in a lot of the cases where people are working out of their home that they are working more hours than they did when they were working for somebody else. Sometimes it seems that the time just flies by - especially when its something that they love to do.

Another reason? How about that commute! Regardless of whether you take public transportation or have your own car the congestion is enough to make you want to scream! How nice it would be if you could avoid the headache! (Of course I really should say that while those of us that do work from home don't have to deal with the daily commute - there are times when we have to travel in it - its just not everyday).

Another reason? How about the fact that you are actually working from home! A lot of single parents want to be able to be home with their children but they still need to make a living. I answered one post from a woman who had a sick mother at home and wanted to work at home so that she could be there to take care of her mother. And then there are those that simply want to work from home.

These are just a few reasons that I can think of on the fly now but again I ask.....

Why would anyone want to work from home!

The Weather!

It has been raining all day! Sometimes it pours. Right now the rain is light but the weather has been the top story on the news today. And its supposed to rain all week!

I'm glad I work from home but that doesn't mean that I don't have errands to run.

In fact there's one errand I wish I could run right now but just can't. It will have to wait.

I'm not feeling 100% - mostly feel like maybe 80%. I'm kind of getting over a slight ear infection.

I need some tea, liquor, lemons and honey! Oh and orange juice!

My First Post!


Hello World!

This is Rose here trying to join the Blogging craze!

I would love to have one of those blogs with the calendar on the side so I'm still looking on how to get one of those!

I currently work from home and I am so glad that I do! It was tough making this decision but I'm glad I did it! Now I help and show others how they can work from home too. But I also do other stuff besides. I do web pages and graphics. I also do tarot readings! It's fun (and from what people have told me the readings have been quite accurate). You can see more by going to my Tarot
