STOP WHINING ABOUT BEING HUNGRY

by Hal Alpiar 

You got music, art, writing, design, sculpting, dance, painting,

acting, photography, and/or craft skills and you’re broke?  

How is that? Because the world you’re trying to make money in is not a music, art, writing, design, sculpting, dance, painting, acting, photography, craft skills world, that’s why.

It’s a business world. Period.                                                                     

If all you seek is to win posthumous awards and recognition, good luck and God speed (and I hope –in addition to your talents– that your billionaire grandmother left you a great deal of money). But, if you’re looking to make your creative talents make money, you’re going to have to step it up (or maybe take yourself down a notch!).

It’s a business world. Period.                                                 

Will you have to prostitute your skills? Perhaps. Depends on your definition of “prostitute” (as a verb), but if you do feel like commercialization is a process of selling your soul, you might want to re-think the value structure you’ve saddled yourself with, and accept that payment for services is not always about the giving up of one’s spirit.

It is only within your realm of definition of the word, “prostitution” that you choose to accept for an act or creative product or service of yours to be what it is.

Be reminded, in other words, that you choose your behavior.                                                    

When you can accept that truth, you will be able to stop torturing your self. You will free yourself to give up all the self-destructive attitudes you may harbor about having to trade off your creative talents for some project retainer or ongoing fee that you’ve considered unethical or unappreciative of your instinctive abilities.

Or, someone once told me she didn’t feel the stars were aligned for her to feel okay about getting paid for applying the purity of the innermost resources of her mind to a brand name. She was not independently wealthy. Instead of>>>>> READ THE REST >>>>> CLICK HERE NOW!

<![CDATA[TheWriterWorks.com, LLC.: Don’t let the media and the White House bully you around!]]> http://www.bizbrag.com/braggit/1483 STOP RUNNING SCARED!

by Hal Alpiar

This is an attitude message, not a sign-up or recruitment decree                          

It’s your business. You’ve captained it through rough seas before. You’ve made it this far. You know in your heart that –as bad as this economy continues to be (in spite of all the White House and media protestations to the contrary)– you can survive the present turbulence by holding your ship steady and running the engines full ahead.                                                                 

Why this message now? Because I see and hear about many small businesses getting weak-kneed and starting to actually consider caving in to all the psychological bullying messages that continue to run rampant out of the White House and the federal government’s puppet media, who have abandoned reporting for propagandizing.

Political manipulating has clearly replaced the reality of what it takes to turn around the economy. Don’t be bullied into buying all the nonsense spewing 24/7 out of the army of talking heads. Small business holds the only key to economic turnaround with genuine new job creation — real jobs that provide real career opportunities! 

I’ve had conversations with three business owners this past week (one retail, one manufacturer, and one service) who are claiming to be on the verge of abandoning most if not all marketing efforts to save money. “So board up your doors and windows too! Just toss in the towel now!” I was tempted to exclaim, but realized I’d simply be fueling the fires.

The L~A~S~T place to cut corners is marketing! T h e   L~A~S~T   p l a c e. No marketing, no prospects. No prospects, no customers. No customers, no sales. Is that rocket science? “Oh,” they say, “but we just can’t afford it anymore; marketing costs a fortune.”                                                                         

No marketing doesn’t cost a fortune! Maybe the kinds of marketing you’ve >>>>>READ MORE NOW >>>>> CLICK HERE

<![CDATA[TheWriterWorks.com, LLC.: Balancing Work and Workouts!]]> http://www.bizbrag.com/braggit/1478 PUT AN “X” THROUGH IT!

by Hal Alpiar 

Thanks, Angela Current www.ClassicResumes.com, for today’s topic

It’s never easy to balance two large critical chunks of your daily existence –like your work and your exercise– without experiencing some feelings of inadequacy, and wondering if you’re cheating yourself.

Why can’t I make both of these things work? What do I have to do to make both pieces fit my daily timeline? Life is no longer feeling like a series of opportunity windows . . . it’s more like locking and unlocking prison gates. HELP!

There are no magic-trick answers. What there is, is discipline. And self-imposed discipline is the hardest to follow. Grumble though we may, it’s almost always easier to follow someone else’s schedule of discipline.

“Your report is needed for a 3pm meeting,” says the boss. “Two more laps around the track!” yells the coach. “Parade Rest!” orders the COAh, but all of those external discipline situations include real or imagined consequences for failure. So? You’re saying you can only perform when there’s a perceived threat involved? Maybe you need a shrink?

                                                         

You use self-discipline to get through every hour of every day. It’s called living a mature and responsible life. What you make of your self-imposed discipline is what draws the line in the sand between your existence and productivity and achievements, and the existence, productivity, and achievements of others

If you’re an extremist, you might be choosing three hours a day, seven days a week, of pumping iron. This can of course severely cut into any kind of reasonable work schedule, and this is not even to mention the time that must be used to be selecting, preparing, and eating the specialized diet that needs to accompany such a commitment.

But hopefully you’ve figured out how to harness your compulsiveness by combining interests — by running or managing a gym, or functioning as a personal trainer or exercise physiologist or physical therapist, or perhaps by being a professional or Olympic athlete.

Now this may be an even bigger stretch, but let’s assume instead that you are fairly “normal” (HA! and you’re reading this?) Okay, you’re a typical entrepreneur who’s preoccupied with making your business idea work; you put in longer business hours than most of your friends and family. And you’re trying to maintain a reasonable exercise schedule, right?

                                              

As with anything in life, success doesn’t drop from the sky. You must apply yourself. In this case, you must set up your own disciplined approach to doing the kinds and amounts of exercise that you believe you need (or that a healthcare professional has prescribed), and commit your mind and attitude to working around that!

Put exercise times down on your calendar for every day you decide you need to exercise.

Pick times (usually best kept consistent from day to day) that do not interfere with essential work hours. For most, early mornings fit best; some prefer early evenings (late evenings are not generally recommended by professionals); others use their lunchtimes to exercise, and nibble healthy snacks throughout the day rather than sit-down lunches.

Some set flex schedules.

The point is that once you choose the times, record them on your daily calendar — put an X through the time slots involved. Then work everything else in your life around those X’s. Unless it’s an emergency situation, simply elect to not schedule any meetings or conference calls in those X-boxed times.                                                               

Make excuses if need be, but protect those Xs because they are indicators of investment you are smartly choosing to make in your SELF. No one but you can do this. And no one but you can make it work. Reinforce your X hours by watching and/or listening to motivational programs. And keep marking your calendar, always  a month in advance.

Oh, by the way, when you’re occasionally forced to miss an Xd-out time block, don’t torture yourself. Make it up as best you can, when you can. It’s not the end of the world. It’s an opportunity to make adjustments.

<![CDATA[York Biomedical, Inc.: What is Far Infrared??]]> http://www.bizbrag.com/braggit/what-is-far-infrared Far Infrared (FIR) heat is a form of light energy that can be very beneficial to the human body.  Infrared rays fall just beyond the red light spectrum, but due to its longer wavelengths, human eyes cannot see FIR heat.  Far Infrared heat has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and, reflect.  The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating properties.  When FIR penetrates through the skin to the deeper tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy.  The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels to dilate, promoting increased blood flow. The heat produced helps to eliminate body toxins and metabolic wastes through perspiration.

<![CDATA[TheWriterWorks.com, LLC.: Startups and Expansions <~~~~~~~ NOW?]]> http://www.bizbrag.com/braggit/1471 GOTTA HUNKA SPUNK?

by Hal Alpiar

NEGATIVE REALITY: “In THIS economy? Nah, now’s not the time to be thinkin’ about starting or expanding a business. You’d have to be nuts! Besides it costs too much for stuff like that, and –if I were gonna do a big new push, I’d want to do it the right way, y’know? Big-time!”          

POSITIVE REALITY: There will never be enough money available to start up or expand a business the way I want to make it happen. Never. So waiting won’t matter. I’ve always believed that CONTRARY to the famous quote: 

NOTHING comes to he who waits!     

That leaves spunk . . .  

  1. Spunk,
  2. determination,
  3. tenacious persistence, 
  4. belief in yourself and your ideas,
  5. commitment,
  6. and a burning desire to make your ideas succeed.        

When all six of these ingredients are front and center 24/7, odds are you will succeed by just putting your head down and charging toward the goal of making your product or service ideas come to fruition. 

When you can do that, the money you need to put things over the top will come to you from sources you least expect. Every truly successful entrepreneur will attest to this. If you doubt it, then consider these two points:

  • If you have doubt, then you do not have all six criteria (noted above) going for you. Back off and shore up the weak spots before you go charging off. 

  • If you are close to having the six criteria above, but still have a smidgen of doubt, talk with someone who has been successful as an entrepreneur, someone who started a successful enterprise on the proverbial shoestring, and you will hear back the exact same kind of chatter.                                           

In other words, people who worry about their ideas making money will not make money; they will, instead, make worry.  Those who turn their backs on the making money goals and focus their energies instead on getting their ideas to succeed, will make money. 

Weird, huh?  Perhaps, but>>READ THE REST NOW>CLICK HERE!
