Party Planning

People are busier than ever before and planning birthday, anniversary, or retirement parties (to name a few) is something few people have time or energy to do.  You can fill in that gap and offer (for a fee) to plan parties for them.

Major skills needed: Organizational ability, computer skills (send out e-invitations,     and research venues and vendors online), and customer service.  Create a contract     and make sure to research the local rates that others charge.  Taking a deposit before the event is recommended.  Ensure the contract spells out all likely issues and contingencies (e.g. cancellation) and the consequences.  event-planner.com is a directory of event planners and has industry information.

Finding Your Focus

June 21, 2013

Originally posted on David Cummings on Startups:

One of the biggest challenges for entrepreneurs is finding their focus. Entrepreneurs, by their very nature, are full of ideas and energy, which works well to get things going, but can be a liability as the organization grows.

Two weeks ago I was talking to an entrepreneur that had built a small business in a hot market but didn’t have the kind of growth that would be expected based on the success of several competitors. Tactfully, I asked him about this and he immediately chalked it up to trying to be all things to all people. Put more simply, he didn’t find his focus.

We’ve all read stories of entrepreneur CEOs asked or pushed aside to be replaced by a professional CEO. Typically, if they don’t leave their company, they often become head of their area of expertise e.g. technical, marketing, etc. This act of going from CEO to department…

Improvements to Homepreneurs

January 8, 2013

Gradually, changes are made to Homepreneurs to make the blog more user-friendly.  The ads previously at the bottom of each post are removed going forward.  This is available through WordPress for a $30 charge.  The category list is reduced into higher-level, more meaningful titles.  Looking at the blog now, you will see 6 headings:

Homepreneurs header

 

1) Home – has all recent postings

2) Home business ideas – has everything from photography to crafts to graphic design and writing.  These are not listed out, but clicking on this category will give all posted business ideas

3) Homepreneurs – subtitles are Blogging, eBook, Social Networking and Success Stories

4) Start & Grow – has marketing, branding, Financial, planning, technology, Insurance

5) Work at Home Jobs – contains survey sites, quick money on-line positions, work from home positions

6) About

These categories display differently (width) in various versions of the major browsers: Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari, but all categories are present in each.

I hope these small changes make your visit to our site more useful and easier to navigate.  Please let me know of any suggestions for future improvement.  This site is for your use and to help you find work.

Best wishes for 2013 and thanks for your continued support.

Home Business Idea – Photography

December 10, 2012

Photographers use a combination of technical expertise, creativity, and composition skills to produce and preserve images that visually tell a story or record events.  According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for photographers is expected to increase about 13% from 2010 to 2020 or slightly above average.  As of 2010, the average wage for photographers was approximately $30,000 per year and roughly 60% were self-employed.  Wages range widely based on experience, specialty, part-time work or full-time employment, and geographic area.

Photographers may specialize in a variety of areas including:

-        Portrait photographers. These photographers take pictures of individuals or groups of people and usually work in their own studios. Photographers who specialize in weddings, religious ceremonies, or school photographs often work on location.

-        Commercial and industrial photographers take pictures of subjects, such as buildings, models, merchandise, artifacts, and landscapes. These photographs are used for a variety of purposes, including magazine covers and images to supplement analysis of engineering projects. These photographs are frequently taken on location.

-        Aerial photographers use planes or helicopters to capture photographs of buildings and landscapes.

-        Scientific photographers focus on the accurate visual representation of subjects and limit the use of image manipulation software for clarifying an image. Scientific photographs record scientific or medical data or phenomena. Scientific photographers typically use microscopes to photograph subjects.

-        News photographers or photojournalists.  These photographers focus on people, places, and events for television, newspapers, or magazines.  Photojournalists often work with digital video in addition to still photos.  These occupations can be dangerous, especially if a photographer is in a war zone or other dangerous environment.

-        Fine arts photographers sell photography as art.  Their work is often found at craft shows or on display in local businesses, restaurants, or government buildings.  Fine arts photographers typically use traditional silver-halide film, not digital cameras and many have their own studios.

Photographers understand that much of the time, many pictures are taken to get one perfect shot.  This is especially true when shooting people, animals, or anything in motion.
