A spoonful of sugar for your next blog post

rosemary published this at 7:07 am

In every job that must be done There is an element of fun You find the fun and snap! The job’s a game

And ev’ry task you undertake Becomes a piece of cake A lark! A spree! It’s very clear to see that

A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down The medicine go down-wown The medicine go down Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down In a most delightful way ~Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins

I’m not saying that your blog content is medicine, but if it’s useful information for your audience, there’s no harm in Read More…

Is Starting a Small Business a Health Insurance Headache?

Dave published this at 9:21 am


If you’ve been thinking about turning your hobby into a small business or even buying an existing business, you may be hesitant after you start looking into the health insurance aspects of hiring employees.

Thanks to Obamacare, more small businesses are now required to provide health insurance plans.

That’s all well and good for owners who have the resources necessary to fund such plans, but it bodes ominous for startups that are bootstrapping their business.

In fact, the sole requirement for a health plan can deter new businesses from starting up in the first place.

Don’t worry.

How To Get Out Of The Habit Of Concealing Flaws

rosemary published this at 6:58 am

By Lindsey Tolino

Iíve had acne since 7th grade. Itís been 15 years now. By the second year of my struggle with acne, I learned to conceal it. I have bought countless bottles of concealer in 14 years. I have learned how to conceal my flaws well.

Weíre taught to conceal. Not to admit our flaws, but to bury them under a mask. This is true of our businesses too.

How to travel light (and why!)

molly published this at 3:00 am

One of my favorite things I’ve found since moving to Chicago is that I get to see a lot of my friends as they travel through.

Just yesterday, I had a chance to have lunch with a great guy who had reduced his belongings for his trip to fit into one good sized rucksack.

Find out where your ideal client is hiding

rosemary published this at 6:08 am

My parents used to live near a famous fishing stream, the Yellow Breeches. Over the years, I noticed that on certain days, there would be a lot more fisherman out there in the water, decked out in their waders, waiting hopefully.

Turns out it wasn’t coincidence. They stock the stream periodically, and the fishermen know when that happens, so they show up to fish when there is a newly stocked stream.

(This seems like cheating to me, but whatever.)
