How To Draw Cartoon Characters and Create a Great Second Income   Most worthwhile projects invariably require careful planning and perseverance to succeed and that will certainly be true if you are determined to draw cartoons and make a great second income. To succeed and develop this idea from a weekend hobby to a serious proposition isn’t just a one step project either. Here’s the way to reach that goal in five simple steps. Step 1- Reassess Your Skills: You may very well not have had pencil to paper or done any sketching for quite a while and getting back to it may well turn out to be a shock. This will be significant because you might find you need to spend time practicing to update your skills. Also, equipment and methods of delivery will most likely have improved. Step 2 – Create your own personal space: Take over an extra room at home or possibly a specific corner in a shared or less frequently used room. Use screening and headphones or ear plugs if appropriate but ensure everybody else realizes that this is the space you work in and, knowing that, if you are within this space, you’re not…

Basketball Offense Tips – Score Big Like Kobe

Basketball Offense Tips – Score Big Like Kobe By Coach Tate   The most important choice a serious basketball player has to make during their career is which basketball workout program to use. Choosing the wrong program can have big consequences, lost time, developing bad technique and lost motivation, just to name a few. Basketball workout programs will vary significantly from coach to coach. There isn’t necessarily one program that is right and the rest are wrong. But there are plenty that are just flat out worthless! I see a lot of coaches putting players on basketball workout programs that make me cringe. The sad thing is that these players are putting all their trust into these coaches and their workout programs. I’ve spent a lot of time talking with top basketball players and coaches. I always pick their brains about what makes a great basketball workout program. And while all their programs vary in exactly what drills they use, they all have some major things in common. But the one thing that all these players and coaches agree on is that there are two major keys to any basketball workout drill. Intensity. This is the number one ingredient to…

Reveal the Genius Inside You by Following These Simple Guidelines   In a world where the intelligence is the main criterion upon which people get high paid jobs, power and sometimes even the best partners, it is obvious that you have to do whatever it takes to accumulate more and more information and skills. But what do you do when you feel that your brain no longer wants to cooperate? Well, read on and find out what you can do in order to keep your brain function at its maximum speed, day after day. First of all, you have to know that intelligence is not something with which you are born. In fact, immediately after you come on this world, your brain has no or very little information and only gradually can it acquire information. You start by learning basic things, such as eating, walking and speaking. The older you get, the more capable of learning new things you brain is. Thus, you should take advantage of your intellectual capacities and put them to work. Read as much as you can, play mind games, such as chess, Sudoku and even strategy computer games. These will keep your mind occupy and…

No More Dry Scalp Book Review
Blog / 08/19/2015

No More Dry Scalp Book Review We are all born with the potential to have a glorious head of hair. Our hair and scalp are supposed to be healthy in our natural state, but why is it that so many of us are suffering instead from itchy, flaky dry scalp and brittle lack-luster hair with straw like split ends, and sometimes even thinning patches? Not surprisingly, many people suffer self-esteem issues when they suffer from hair and scalp problems. The basic chemical make-up of hair is keratin, a strong protein that also makes nails. Each of its strand comes to the end of its natural life from between two and seven years when it is released from the follicle and new one grows in its place. All of this cycle is going on without us even realizing it. Beside each follicle there is a sebaceous gland which normally secretes sebum to lubricate it and naturally moisturize the scalp. Theoretically we should all have beautiful hair and a healthy scalp all the time if we eat the right foods and watch what we put on our hair. If you eat plenty of fresh food, cut down on stimulants such as coffee…

Tips to Raising Happy Kids

Tips to Raising Happy Kids   By Winsome Coutts As a grandmother and self-help writer, I’m often asked by readers, “How do you raise happy kids?” This is a question near and dear to every loving parent’s heart. No matter what we teach them, if we haven’t taught them how to be happy, or can’t parent in a way that makes them feel happy, it’s rather all for naught, isn’t it? So it’s a very pertinent question. I’ve been blessed with having two happy children and two happy grandchildren. I applied certain principles in raising my kids, and see my son and daughter-in-law apply the same in raising their adorable daughters, Klara and Stina. In this article, I’ll share two tips I’ve learned along the way.   The first is the importance of modeling happiness. You can’t give something you don’t have. How can you teach kids happiness if you don’t have it yourself? Some parents think loving their family means living only for them, driving them everywhere, cleaning up after them, and putting their kids’ needs and desires way ahead of their own. Parenting shouldn’t turn us into a short-order restaurant or a cleaning or taxi service. It does…

Why Hunters Need A Turkey Hunting Guide
Blog / 08/18/2015

Why Hunters Need A Turkey Hunting Guide   This is a sport that does not always have a winner. Of course, winning this game means capturing or killing a turkey for dinner or for show. Patience is basically the number one criterion of this sport. Huntsmen have to wait for hours until it arrives. Then, they will try to call several times before they get answers. And sometimes, even if it has already answered a call, it will still take a long time before it finally reaches the hunter’s proximity. Because of this, turkey hunting has been regarded as one of the most challenging sports. However, not all aspiring hunters can become successful. These birds are very difficult to catch because they have excellent vision and hearing. So, a guide might become handy. A turkey hunting guide will most likely suggest that a novice exerts patience during the times when it has answered his call and is slowly approaching, as well as, during times when there is no barrier between him and the fowl. This huntsman has to remain motionless for a long period of time before he shoots, because even a single movement can scare it away. Then, another…

The Secret to Studying with Ease and Getting Awesome Grades By Robert F. Locke (MSc. Psychology)   Say Goodbye To All Your Study Problems! You might be surprised to hear that most people in school and college are working too hard. Even people studying at home are usually working much harder than they need to. But guess what . . . What most people don’t realize is that studying and learning should never be too difficult. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you what it’s like.

In fact, if done correctly studying and learning should be a pleasurable experience. It shouldn’t be hard and it should probably take you less than half the time you’re already spending.

Fatigue and Lack of Energy   Are you running short of your elixir? Do you feel dumb and dull on the weekends while you plan to get the most out of them? Do you think that some power has sucked all your energy? Are you lagging being and life is just passing you by? If you feel so, it might be due to the drastic loss of energy. People might lose their energy due to more than one reasons. It might be due to exhausting work routine. It might be due to the lack of nutrition. It might be because of some psychological issues.

Blog / 08/16/2015

Checklist for Wedding – Coming up with a Guest List How to plan a wedding? No wedding planner, no mom to help (because she’s a little busy at work), no friend to give a hand either. And regarding the groom-to-be, rare is he that offers voluntary help (and if you have one that does, kudos my friend – you’re so lucky!) It’s all you – just you and your pack of unending lists. Speaking of lists, did you know that your guest list is the second most important (if not the most important) list you will ever need for your wedding? Why? Well, it will become the basis of almost every preparation that you will have to make for your big day – from booking the venues (church or ceremony venue, and the reception) to the catering, invitations and favors, all of which affects your wedding budget. Drawing up a guest list shouldn’t be too hard … that’s if it was just mainly you who will be doing it. But there are several factors to be considered, so really, you would need the help of your fiancée for this one since it’s his wedding too. Start with your most important…
