    Business Plan

    You need a business plan. If you’ve never even heard of a business plan before, much less seen one, that’s all the more reason to make one. A business plan will sort out all the details you have to manage before they bury you. And no lending institution will give you money unless you have one.

    Clientele

    An essential detail is clientele. Just being an expert at fitness and having endless enthusiasm are not enough. You have to do the research to see whether enough clients exist in the neighborhood you want to work. Will you have clients coming in as soon as you open the doors? If so, how many? How will you get more clients and how many will be enough to meet overhead?

    Location

    You’ve hea [...]

  • You only get one chance to make a first impression’ is a phrase that holds true in both life and business. It doesn’t matter if you are able to change someone’s first impression of you for worse or better. They will always remember how you first came across.

    When it comes to a sales meeting with a new client you might not have much of a window to change a first impression if it’s a negative one.

    The first thing anyone will notice about you is your car. It’s the most visible thing that identifies you even before you’ve got a foot in the door (literally). Therefore it is wise to question, do you need an executive car to present yourself professionally?

    What are you selling?

    If you are in a traditional B2B market such as telecoms, insurance or IT systems then you will want to present an image that implies stability/reliability. Therefore pulling up in an VW campervan or an old rusted car just won’t cut it. You need to assimilate yourself with the desirable qualities [...]

  • Personal Injury patients deserve special attention. Many physicians avoid them. Because the case is not reimbursed by normal medical insurance and the patient often is not paid until the case is settled, it can take the doctor several years to collect his bill. Often the case is settled through negotiation and compromise, resulting in collecting a great deal less than is owed.

    But the personal injury practice can be profitable and satisfying when done right. Some of the advantages of a personal injury practice:You can usually collect all that you bill, as long as it is reasonable and customary. Your patients are grateful for no out-of-pocket expenses and the assurance that they will not be stuck with monstrous medical bills they can never hope to pay. You will build up a substantial accounts receivable which will continue to pay out for years even if you stop practicing.

  • Weight loss is a serious concern across the world. People tend to put on a lot of weight because of the kind of lifestyles we lead. We are constantly being forced to consume junk food that is freely available. This results in formation of fat in the body. Once there is a lot of fat accumulated, a lot of weight gain happens. Fat tends to get stored in certain parts of the body and then converts into cellulite. Once this process has happened, then it becomes particularly difficult to lose weight. That said there are a lot of things that you can do as a person if you are suffering from weight problems.

  • Actually, one thing worse than not having a lawyer is not having a good one. In the legal profession, as in so many other things, experience matters. Especially, experience on both sides of the law. If they can put criminals away, they know how those who effectively defend them operate.

    If you have ever been arrested or found yourself in the middle of a criminal investigation, you know first-hand how stressful it can be. Here is some advice on what to do and, equally important, what not to do.

    What to do when you think you are under arrest

    You’ve seen this on TV. Probably the worst thing you can do when arrested is talk about your situation with law enforcement officials. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. About the only safe things to say are, “Am I under arrest?” and “I want to talk to an attorney.” Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether you are under arrest. The police need a reason to arrest a citizen, but will try to [...]

    Eating out as a family is not always easy. Family-friendly restaurants aren’t always the ones you want to go to, because they don’t necessarily have the same good reputation as other restaurants in the area. So, if you’re looking for a good place to take your whole family for a meal, kids and all, where can you go besides fast food?

    Denny’s

    This American classic has been around for years and has more than 1000 locations around 49 US states. What makes it so great for families is that the prices are very reasonable and the kids menu is fantastic. They have a space ship team for many of the items on the menu, and it includes rocket ship kid’s cups, star chicken nuggets, astronaut applesauce, and anti-gravity grapes. Over recent years, Denny’s has also been working to reduce the trans fats in their foods in an effort to make healthier dishes for kids and adults.

  • How to Wear Cologne ?

    March 22, 2017


    Image by pixbay

    Cologne is an important part of how people receive you. That means wearing it wrong, or even not wearing it at all can be a very costly mistake. Since the smell of your personal fragrance can be very strong- or almost nonexistent, the balance is a vital thing to strike.

    One of the first and most important things that you need to do when wearing cologne is start slowly. One spray, one part of your body. Many young men think that it is necessary to spray absurd amounts of personal fragrances, leaving those around them in a cloud of simply far to much. All it takes is one spray, maybe two. And never on top of clothes. That is a rule that every expert seems able to agree on. Cologne can stain clothes, all types of perfume can. That's not to say it will turn your clothes the same amber as the liquid, but it is a risk. And more importantly, not wearing the cologne on your skin ruins the effect of it. The liquid in that bottle is made specifically to work with yo [...]

    If something should happen and the officials charge you with a crime, you need to know what to do next. Sometimes, people will accuse you of a crime that you didn't commit. When you are due to appear in court on a criminal charge, you might not know where to turn. Dealing with the issue can be intimidating and scary. If someone thinks you have broken the law, you could be in serious trouble. You should remember to keep calm. You need to have some faith in the judicial system and know that your innocence will prevail. Here is everything you need to know about your case.

    Understand the court system

    Before you appear in court, you need to understand what will happen. If your case is a minor conviction, such as a DUI, you might find that the court resolves the matter in just one sitting. If your conviction is something more serious than that, such as murder, the court case will take much longer than you expect. Sometimes, court cases can tak [...]

  • When you want to buy a second hand car you have to take all the precautions to make sure you are going to pay for a reliable car. There are many lemon cars out there and those who buy them always fail to read the signs which tell them they are going to make a poor choice. Knowing what to look for in a car is very important if you want to avoid wasting your money.

    Pay attention to the smells

    The first clue you should be aware of is the smell: if the car has any strange smells, such as burnt oil, it might be a lemon car. Most of the times, a strange smell is the telltale sign of something that's not alright underneath the hood. Some smells are obvious, while others are more subtle, but once you've felt something, make sure you ask more questions and take the car to the service before paying for it.

    The suspension problem

    Another thing to be aware of is the suspension. If the car's suspension is in good shape, the car will bounce up and down co [...]

  • You’ve decided to do something about your credit report. Perhaps you want a bank loan. Maybe you want to buy a house. Maybe a landlord wants to see your credit record. Or your prospective employers, especially if you are applying for a job that requires a security clearance. What can you do for yourself as easily and cheaply as hiring a professional firm?

    First, understand that reporting errors are very common. Sky Blue Credit, one of the more reputable credit repair companies, notes that, according to studies done by public interest research groups, 79% of all credit reports contain errors. Some may be relatively harmless, but 60% of reports reviewed contained serious errors that led to the victims paying premium interest rates and even being denied credit.

    If your credit report contains wrong and harmful information, you have the right to demand an investigation, free of charge, into every piece of information you find that you believe to be inaccurate. And the reporting [...]

  • Withdrawals can be a difficult thing to go through, for those that are addicted to any substances. They will need help and support from loved ones and health professionals. If you plan to stay with someone that is going through a substance detox, it’s important to get prepared for it beforehand.

    Here are a few recommended ways to help someone you know to overcome withdrawals. You can also find out more information about specific addictions from The Recovery Village, so you can get a better idea of what they might face.

    Recognize the Normal Symptoms

    Things like aching muscles, a headache, shaking, sweating, nausea or vomiting, irritability, mood swings, insomnia, nightmares, and diarrhea are all very common symptoms of someone going through withdrawals. There are more than just these symptoms, but some of them are more specific to certain types of withdrawals and don’t happen in all other types. For example, alcoholics experiencing withdrawals won’t [...]

    Slips and trips happen all the time and often they’re simply laughed off. However, if you’ve suffered a personal injury as a result of a fall, you’ll know how devastating the consequences of these accidents can be.

    Sidewalk slips and trips are especially common. In fact, they’re one of the most common avoidable accidents that individuals can experience. Often, these incidents result in cuts and bruises. However, they can also lead to sprained or broken ankles and wrists. In the most serious cases, they can cause severe and long lasting damage to the back and spine, traumatic brain injuries or even death.

    If you or someone you love has been affected by a sidewalk accident, it’s well worth finding out if you can take legal action. Seeking compensation won’t undo the harm caused, but it can help you to cover any medical costs and lost earnings. It can also provide you with a sense of closure.

    Was someone else to blame?

    You might [...]

  • Today the military deploys to combat with more contractors than troops. From June 2009 through March 2011 contractors outnumbered troops in Iraq and Afghanistan by a staggering ten-to-one. To put that in perspective, until 1990 relatively little contract support was employed. During the Balkan wars of the 1990s, it rose to one contractor per fifty soldiers, an unprecedented number.

    Christopher Shays, the co-chair for the commission on wartime contracting famously said, “We can’t go to war without contractors and we can’t go to peace without contractors.

    Integrating civilian project management methods with those used by the military has become a requisite skill for professional military leaders. The constraints for the military are quite different from the corporate world. Military objectives are often not measurable in dollars. There are strict rules governing how the military is allowed to manage civilians.

    Military leadership places very little attention on development [...]

  • If you’re planning to start your own business, you need an idea.  Not just any idea though, a good one, an original one.  It’s harder than you might think actually, to come up with an original idea.  Of course you can take an idea and put an original spin on it, but chances are if you pick one of these ideas the market is already over-saturated and the competition will be stiff!

    #1. Coffee Shop

    ‘But I’m good at making muffins!’ I can hear you wailing.  That doesn’t mean you will be able to run a successful coffee shop.  If you live in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere, with no other delis or cafes around then yes, your home-made muffins and carrot cake could be the talk of the town!  Opening a trendy coffee shop in Shoreditch however is a different matter.  You’ll need heaps of money to invest in premises, qualified baristas, endless energy and enthusiasm and superior baking skills, not to mention an iron-clad aura of happiness and positiv [...]

  • The last couple of years have been a complete and total rollercoaster ride for me. I’ve had highs, lows and everything in between, but now things are finally levelling off to be much better all around. There are so many reasons for this, but I wanted to focus on the five that were the closest to my heart. I hope you will find my blog post helpful; perhaps it might even act as a catalyst for getting your own life back on track…

    I got a degree

    My whole life has been full of people telling me I couldn’t do things. Perhaps that’s what you get for being the youngest of six siblings. Anyway, I wanted to prove that I did have it in me to succeed, so I enrolled at university and got my degree in August. I really couldn’t be more proud of my achievement, and it’s given me all sorts of courage and determination for the future. My aim is to become a teacher as I do believe I can help to inspire others.

    I lost a lot of weight

    In order to attend my cla [...]
