Wrapping Up With Readers’ Comments At Home Biz Notes
Throughout the year, our readers have visited and added their comments to the various topics we’ve presented. It’s always enjoyable to learn what you’re thinking and have you share with us.
So we’re “wrapping up” with some comments here at Home Biz Notes.
1. Celebrate Universal Children’s Day in Your Business
Bridget Wright at Biz Chicks Rule shared with us
For Children’s Universal Day, I’ll be going to my son’s school on Monday and sharing the meaning of Thanksgiving with them. Showing them how other cultures celebrate, what they do, the different foods they eat and what the holiday means to their culture. I’m hoping that there will be an awareness raised about other cultures and being sensitive to the say they do things and how they celebrate holidays.
2. Home Biz Owners - Join the Carnival
Darlene McDaniel urges bloggers to join carnivals.
One of the ways I have gotten Interview Chatter in the mix on the blogosphere was to participate in carnivals. I would get very creative if the theme was not in my niche. There are creative ways to work a blog post so that you can submit to almost any carnival out there!!
(Incidentally Darlene hosted a carnival earlier this month, The December Career & Job Advice Blog Carnival.)
3. Add Your Vote - What Difference Would A Million Dollars Make To Your Home Business? We had a number of comments for this poll.
Anne Wayman of The Golden Pencil said
I picked “I’m outta here…” but that’s not exactly true… I certainly wouldn’t hire staff unless it was virtual… no storefront for me, nor buying out competition… I’d focus more on my own writing and product development and less on writing for clients.
Sharon Hurley Hall of Get Paid to Write Online
I chose ‘expand my home business’ but in fact, what I would do is work on my own projects and cherry pick the client projects I wanted. Good question - and one I was discussing just a day ago. :)
Violette Severin of Hand Quilting
I would expand my business, buying a top of the line long arm quilting machine. I would also move to another home so that I could have 1 or 2 rooms dedicated to the business.
Sean D’Souza of Psycho Tactics recommends
It depends how you get the million dollars.If you built it up step by step, year by year, you won’t notice you have a million dollars (in fact you’ll see it as ‘just a million dollars.’)
The key isn’t whether you get a million dollars or not, but the method to get there. Because if you indeed were able to make a million, then ten million is just a step away.
I actually think ‘getting a million’ dollars would be a disadvantage in many ways. Edging yourself up steadily is probably a better way to go about it.
4. Working Successfully As A Home Business Team was another post that received comments.
Laura Spencer at Work from Home Momma says:
Great post on teamwork and home businesses. I think most people think that when they start a home business they must do it alone. Your post shows that is not the case.
As I go through the comments in our blog, I realize our readers have great insights to contribute, whether they agree with us or not. Sometimes we use these comments as springboards for additional posts. However, I think it’s fun to do a round-up of these occasionally.
Who knows, you may find your post here sometime!
