2009 was a gorgeous treat for me.
Another year is in store for all of us, one that is full of promise– and I am excited to find new territories to conquer again. Yet there are more lessons to learn, more people to thank for – my family, the people I work with across the US, and all my friends. The long hours I spent in creative ferment will one day see its prize.
So, alone in this inspired path I would go; tho’ none notice, as I would not require the presence of negative influences *grin. No time to waste on inappreciable company. My rule now: detach from people who are affecting me negatively (at least I hope I can).
Just thankful that I have a clear take on where I want to head for because I have decided to refine my focus on things that will matter to me.
Happy 2010! May this year see us a better person.
All the best,

Communications and technology are quick to evolve, and as a result, more people are finding themselves working online. Interaction between people has eventually changed to computer-to-computer communication. So a crucial part in giving and getting high quality work can start with a pleasant relationship with people one is working with.
In this world of pc-to-pc communication, maintaining a good relationship in the virtual workplace cannot be underrated. Why? What was considered good behavior several years ago, is still considered good behavior today. Values are still values, and they will remain that way. Read on…
Remember your simple courtesies such as “Thank you”. You are interacting with humans, albeit in the virtual setting. Because of this, you need to cultivate a relationship with them. Just when you think that courtesies are not useful anymore, you can be mistaken with that notion. Appreciation and gratitude can never become obsolete. As human beings, we still value kindliness and politeness in the workplace. Rude behavior, will not, in any situation, be an acceptable conduct when working together.
Be reachable. You can get and receive updates through IM, email or any form of communications that you are comfortable with. You may also want to choose the phone over these methods. As long as the team can benefit, select a preferred line of communication to facilitate easy receipt of messages from both your ends.
Your office hours should be a settled thing. It would also be good if you set fixed working hours for the sake of communication. When the other end knows what time to reach you, it will be easy for your client, boss or colleagues to contact you.
Provide status report for your work. It will become easier for others to track where you are progressing in the work that you have been assigned. People still work in teams in the online office. So give your team an idea how far you have gone with the tasks given to accomplish. A timeframe would help you work your pace, as well as, keep track with others’ achievements on a project, too.
Take these as your helpful hints!
A business marketing plan can put elements to work together so that businesses achieve their potentials! It is a maintenance system for any organization or corporation that aspires towards specific goals. The marketing plan becomes a structure where each step made by the company can refer to it, so long as the business continues to operate.
For Business Stability
Whether acknowledged or not, every business can get a good station when it is using a business marketing plan. There are several times in the course of business that things can become unstable, so a simple business plan can serve as a complete reference when implementation of appropriate measures is required.
But the plan should not always expect to impose too rigid guidelines, as some situations or issues will surely call for flexibility. However, it will be a big help for the management team in cases of disputable situations.
Business planning can accommodate what owners want to happen in their businesses. It is always necessary to formulate a marketing guide for each organization. However, not every business marketing plan can work with any business; each one must get a tailored plan, a marketing system for its products.
Guide For All Businesses
Businesses whether it be small scale or large can make use of a business marketing plan. In the online market, those who do not have a clear line of promoting their brand name and products have little to expect in terms of revenue.
Assistance From Online Marketers and Writers
It will need support of top-of-the-line internet marketers and writers who can deliver a system for strategic planning to clients. There may be technology available such as the business marketing plan software, but a carefully planned marketing scheme by only a web marketing expert would be the most practical thing you can do at the start.

Online entrepreneurship. I have decided to pursue this path.
What made me strike on something that many consider hard to follow through? My reasons are a-plenty and they are all valid reasons for me.
My raison d’etre, they will justify why I am taking a different route this time.
1. Though I am not driven back with the idea that I can work for a company or for someone else, I just realized that I will be stuck evermore in a corporate chair, with limited income and a dim salary prospect.
2. An 8-hour office job failed to bring the kind of satisfaction that I thought it will provide me. Aside from that, it has become so tiring that work becomes dragging. When you are working for someone, you get up at least 2 hours earlier, prepare for work, take a ride from home and back again. I arrive at the office tired, and return home depleted— both the pocket and my energy reserve.
3. I am disillusioned with office politics. Corporate culture is stifling talent more instead of enhancing it, and there are no more better opportunities that can be seen. It is repulsive and downright ugly. It reminds me of dogs that fight over a piece of meat.
4. I become my own boss. Come to think of it. I make my own decisions, and choose the people I like to do business with. I can also choose what service and products to render, like the ones where I am good at.
5. I can handle my own team and manage them the way I think is proper. I become involved in conceptualizing things that are good for my business. I am in charge, and I make the right contribution to what can be called mine.
6. I obtain quality in my personal life. I can choose the time I work, where I go for vacations, without begging anyone to allow me to take a leave from work.
These things provide me a clear motive why I am going to make this a gainful engagement. Though I cannot guarantee that everything will become smooth, I will see to it that my efforts will be productive.
I am no longer a work junkie of the corporate world. Energized by this new light, I give cheers to new possibilities!
