Running A Handmade Business

Traditional advertising costs money, and isn’t very effective in many circumstances. What about word of mouth advertising for your business? It’s free, and it’s the most effective type of marketing. When you buy something do you head to YouTube to research commercials, or do you head online to read reviews, or maybe call a friend or family member to ask their opinion of a local plumber? You use word of mouth, and you trust it, whether you realize it or not! Don’t forget taxes, when you are self-employed you are responsible not just for regular taxes but also for taxes that an employer usually pays directly. Your tax rate will vary depending on your state and income level, but make sure you factor it into your self pay.

Once customers begin to flow in, you will have to learn how to properly schedule your customers so that you can work for them during their free time, after school, or on weekends. Ask your parents for help coming up with a system so you do not miss appointments. Home-schooled kids tend to have a bit more flexibility, so this is a wonderful opportunity for those students.

When you were four, you dressed like a four-year-old. When you were twenty, you dressed like a twenty-year-old. And now that you are over 50, explore the selection of beautiful casual and elegant clothes available for this age group. Cultivate a style that makes you look attractive, comfortable, and chic. Be a role model for the younger generation. Let them see how a mature and confident woman should present herself. You’ll look and feel so much better.

Many tutors will have their ads published on craigslist and in local newspapers to really cast their name out there. Always specify if you provide in-home tutoring and if you’re will to travel (and how far). However you decide to do it, just be sure you are reaching out to the appropriate crowds, whether you want to work with young children learning how to grasp the basics, or with college students trying to work their way up to their Doctorate degree.

How about the time factor? Well, so far it’s working great for me. I do a combo of online and in-home parties – and both are really successful. I like that I don’t have to leave home for online parties and I can have them with people far and wide, not just local. But I love in home parties for the face-to-face fun. Within the company, we have lots of people who exclusively hold online parties – even high-level leadership – which is doable and successful when you aren’t spammy and have a good outline (I make my own outline each month and share it with my team members).

Ogun (Ogoun) is the traditional warrior, similar to the spirit of Ares in Greek mythology. As such, Ogun is mighty, powerful, and triumphal; yet, he exhibits the rage and destructiveness of the warrior whose strength and violence can turn against the community he serves. Ogun gives strength through prophecy and magic. It is Ogun who is said to have planted the idea, led and given power to the slaves for the Haitian Revolution of 1804. He is called now to help people obtain a government more responsive to their needs.
