Make More Money with a Christmas Light Installation Business
Blog / 06/17/2014

Make More Money with a Christmas Light Installation Business By Bill Tincu, Creator of Christmas Kings   In my experience, I would say that most Holiday lighting companies are small (2-4 employees) and only have the ability to handle a limited amount of customers each year. Once some installation companies establish core clients after their first year, many of them don’t even market. Their business comes from previous jobs or referrals from current clients, which usually is made up of neighbors, family and friends. Each holiday season, you will find that more calls come in than can ever be fulfilled. I have found this to be a very common complaint from Christmas lighting installers: too much business! I can’t think of any other industry that has a problem turning down customers! During the first week of December, things get really busy any calls start pouring in. I have found myself telling people that I can’t leave my house for less than a minimum of $400. Lighting services are in such demand that people are really willing to pay an arm and a leg to have it done. Growth is the goal and most important aspect to your new business. Be…

Essential Care Tips For Pet Rabbits   If you currently have a rabbit, the following tips may give you some helpful guidance in how to care for it so he remains healthy and happy. Caring for them takes time, patience and love, and it’s not for everyone. But if it is right for you, you’ll get a lot of enjoyment from your pets. If you are considering getting one, you should know first of all that they do not make good pets for young children. They are very timid and can even die from fright. While bunnies are cute, they are very fragile and must be handled carefully. They are not likely to be happy in a home full of small children, and they really aren’t cut out to be pets for little kids. All in all, this is not a good situation for rabbits. Keep in mind that they love to be out and about, with the people they love.

The first thing you have to do is to have feeders ready. Using feeders is so much better than feeding them on the ground; the latter results in the spreading of diseases and feed wastage.

The Basics of Laptop Repair – Dealing with Sticky Keys
Blog / 04/25/2014

The Basics of Laptop Repair – Dealing with Sticky Keys By Thomas James, Author of Laptop Repair Made Easy   Most people don’t think about laptop repair until they actually began to suffer a malfunction. Perhaps you were typing at your laptop’s keyboard some night and suddenly noticed that the keys on your keyboard began to stick, resulting in lines of characters appearing in the middle of your text. If this has happened to you, there’s no need to worry about it. Replacing a laptop’s keyboard may not be as easy as replacing a desktop PC’s keyboard, but it’s not that difficult either. You may not have known of this before (or perhaps you did), but most of the electronics goods on the market today are all made in China. This means that no matter what company claims credit for your keyboard, it still means that it was made according to the same manufacturing norms. This means that all keyboards use more or less the same principles, and therefore are all relatively easy to replace. The first step in laptop repair is to turn off the power. I know it seems rather silly to mention this, but, on the other…

Off Shore Doesn’t Mean What it Used to!
Blog / 04/17/2014

Off Shore Doesn’t Mean What it Used to! by Barry There’s a new buzz phrase in corporate America, “offshoring”. Perhaps you’ve heard of it. Offshoring is when companies send jobs overseas where the labor will be far cheaper. I’m a big proponent of taking control of your life and not leaving your fate in the hands of a company. Well here’s yet another reason to think this way. Offshoring is Nothing New It hit the manufacturing sector during the late 1980s when many blue-collar workers, in cities like Flint Michigan lost their jobs. Back then it was referred to as “outsourcing”. These jobs went to workers in areas like Mexico City, again because the labor was over 50% cheaper. I used to work in the automotive industry in Flint. The town was devastated when thousands of workers at General Motors’ plants lost their jobs, due to outsourcing. Did you ever see Michael Moore’s 1989 movie “Roger and Me”? It chronicles Flint. Service Industries are No Longer Immune This time it’s the white collar worker’s turn. Professional and technical workers are now losing their jobs to cheaper labor in places like India and the Philippines. These are service jobs in a…

Simple Steps to Raising Turkey Meat on Your Own   Turkeys are great meat; it’s lean, has a lot of great antioxidants, and natural vitamins and nutrients and can be even better if you are raising them on your own for meat. It can be very simple and easy in raising them. First of all, start your production with good healthy stock concerning your turkey babies. You can raise them from the egg yourself in an incubator, or purchase good healthy stock from many of the turkey-farms. Make sure to watch out for diarrhea, crooked legs at about four weeks, and that they don’t get too cold. When it comes to raising them you are going to want to give them heat lamps so the they don’t get too cold. When they get cold, they cuddle up together and actually sit on top of one another, resulting in its pile up, with the bottom being smothered to death. Of course it does matter how many you are raising at a time, you should always try to raise at least 5 as one or two may pass away and three can be a flock together. You also need to decide whether…
