Word on the streets that finding decent employment in Canada [Ontario] has become a tedious job. Not that it was all gravy before, but the availability of the so-call good jobs are becoming fewer. Long time employees are becoming redundant and laid off, only to find out that their jobs have gone to the Philippines or India. Yet, when you look at the facts that same company is servicing Canadians with their off shores staff.
On the backs of Loyal Canadians
Many of these large corporations that have become very successful because Canadians are loyal individuals that are supportive and we stick together. Only later on, when greed has escalated and corporations wants robots has employees, then the need for change comes about. It is all about the mighty dollar and who has the higher profit margin.
Folks are not entirely asking these guys on Bay Street to be nationalistic, only to have a sense of integrity. Deal with your Canadian clients as you would want them to deal with you. If it is Canadian businesses you are after, why not employ Canadians? Lets see how loyal you are.
With the high cost of living, extremely high taxesand house prices on its way to the moon, it’s a wonder you don’t hear Canadians screaming on every corner. I hear from folks working two and three jobs to make sure the bills are paid at the end of the month. Family time has gone down the drain as parents are finding it difficult to have that quality time together with their children. Children are feeling abandoned, but parents are left without much choice.
Make the choice for freedom
It is time for Canadians and especially Ontarian to stand in solidarity and state their dissatisfaction with these corporation and the government that allows them to move off sure, while still benefiting from Canadian dollars. It is the mission of this blog to encourage people to have their own businesses and dictate their pay check.
Finding decent employment in Canada [Ontario]
may seem daunting, but the opportunity to open and start your own business is easier than ever, now. There are big benefits in starting your own business including tax right offs and incentives
. Take the step into your future. Nothing in life is ever sure, but you can always try and see the outcome; you may just be surprise.
The above headline statement is true, but better yet start a business. In some case a J.O.B is not as fulfilling as being your own boss. Sometimes a person must learn how to crawl before they walk and a job is a perfect crawling lesson. However, having a business is an ideal accomplishment for growth and wealth accumulation. The crazy thing is that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist, you just must want it bad enough. The steps on becoming an entrepreneur are many and each step has to be taken with great thoughts.
Having the right mindset
Your first bet is to get into a owners mindset. It is just more than wanting to become an entrepreneur, it is believing that you can do it. You have to be the one believing in yourself and you’ve got to want it bad enough.
Speaking of wanting it bad enough. My 22-year-old niece has been her own boss since the age of 17 and has hired her first two staff members in the last year. I don’t think when she first started there was any inclination that she would have accomplished so much in such a short time. Like many 17-year-olds she had a big interest in makeup and fashion. Looking for inspiration she turned to Youtube and found a plethora of videos that inspired and taught her techniques she didn’t know.
After watching many videos and tutorials she felt incline to create her own and show to the masses. To tell you the truth, a lot of family members tried to discouraged her, but she held her grounds. Posting videos on Youtube did not take off immediately however, in one of her videos she made a blunder and that was the video that got her noticed. When the viewers saw that she was just human that made the same mistakes that they make, they started subscribing to her channel. TODAY, after five years on Youtube her subscriber list is 78,000 and her goal is to reach 100,00 this year and receive the Youtube 100,000 plaque. Her business is thriving and she brings in over $11 000 monthly for her content creation and views. Not adding in ties with several networks and reviews for companies.
How bad do you want it?
With all, you are the overseer of your destiny. With the right mine-set, motivation and inspiration a business can be formed out of anything that there is a demand for. Sometimes you need to look outside of the box because that’s where genius ideas are. Too many times folks are looking at the norm and think it is the only way. The adage says, ‘Why reinvent the wheel?’ But many times, the wheel is outdated and needs ingenuity.
Compile your God given talents and skills, evaluate them and come up with an idea that can help someone. Cosign to the steps on becoming an entrepreneur and have you plan ready to execute. Market yourself like mad to get traction and make money. Then do it all over again and again.
On your journey to get out of poorness a blog maybe one of your business project. This could be a great idea if it is well thought out and a plan is put into place. The blog should be what folks are interested in getting information on. It should reflect your interest in the niche you have chosen. A visitor can mostly tell when interest isn’t in the written article. The posts should be addressing the issues at hand and administer solutions. If you give the people what they want they’ll come and keep coming back for move.
When blogging to make extra money, do you just write on a random topic pertaining to your blog. Do you just write for writing sake, without a goal in mind or you are not sure what your post should accomplish? These are the questions every blogger needs to ask themselves before their fingers touch the keyboard. Why am I blogging and who is my audience is?
Blogging without an aim is like going for a walk with no destination in mind. One has to be focused on a target. Be a sharp shooter in your blogging. When you make a post on your site, ensure that you your post reaches your target. You will usually know this almost immediately if you have a big following. The comments will come rolling in fast and you’ll have feedback. Then you know you have hit the target.
Keywords are essential in hitting your target dead on. This is how readers will find you through a topic and the keywords that are in place. Use keywords and phrases that people are searching for. Ones that are long tail, meaning these are specific searches and not generic to a niche. Example of a generic search would be someone searching for ‘Oxford shoes’. A long tail keyword would be ‘brown leather Oxford shoes’. This will get you ranked quicker in the search engine and get you the traffic you so desperately need. Here you will be able to get help with all your keywords need.
Blogging to make extra money with social media
No man is an island and we need to interact with others. Instead of you trying to reach a million readers all by yourself, why not let others help. Share your content with your followers as soon as it is PUBLISHED. It is important to have various social media accounts such as, FaceBook, twitter, Instagram and YouTub. This way, you will be able to reach a larger audience and spread the word about you and your website. The important thing is to ask your followers to tweet and share your content. More than likely they will share you with their tribe.
Create a page on Facebook for your blog or your business. Interact with your visitors and be transparent, folks seem to like hearing about others nitty-gritty. Encourage them to sign up for your newsletter or get notification when you have new content posted. Use your pages as a conduit for your blog. Update it often and keep it relevant.
I hope you see that being a sharp shooter when blogging for extra money will only increase your chance of being found and having folks navigate to your content because you a marketed to them precisely.

The holiday season is upon us and a bit of extra cash is always welcome. Each year it seems that the amount of people on my list has been increasing.
Once the holidays passed there comes the credit card bill that must be paid off in a timely manner. Therefore, addition income is required make that happen.
That means I have to find ways to earn cash this holiday and into 2017. Here are a few ideas to help you along.
Gigs to Earn Cash
Gift Delivery…is in high demand this time of year. If you have a reliable vehicle and you are wanting, make some extra cash this holiday this might be something to consider. It is a hectic time of the year and most people are strapped for time so, this is a service that you can offer. Contact friends and family, advertise in your local newspaper and at your child’s school about the service you are offering. Don’t forget to set your prices where you are covering your gas expenditure and paying yourself.
Baking Christmas Treats…must be one of my favorite things to do in the holiday season, but my time is limited due to my much tight schedule. I would be a relief if I found someone that makes holiday treats and delivered it to my home. Many people that work outside the home are finding it difficult to bake treats and do holiday decorating because they are so busy so, a service that does would be a welcome help. Let friends and neighbors know the service you are offering. Set up a basic menu< but be flexible if someone wants a special item.
Drop-in Sitter…is mostly needed on a last whim. If a mom is at home with her two little ones and she has to run to the mall, it is not always convenient to take the little ones along. A drop-in sitter comes in handy for this scenario. If you are at home Most of the day and has the time to dedicate to a few extra children in your home, then this maybe a good fit for you. This service is also great for caregivers that are looking for a break to run errands.
EBay Selling…This may seem over rated, but it works. For some reason people like buying other people’s stuff. It’s from the adage “one man’s garbage is another man’s treasure’. You can go around your house and collect items that no longer interest you, like that ugly sweater you got for Christmas and place it on eBay FOR SALE. Use the money to buy something you’ll (after you’ve paid the credit card balance off) wear.
Homemade craft for gifts…If you are the crafty kind; think about this as a home business. The trend arising is handmade craft. People seem to be looking for something different when shopping for gifts and have turned to handmade products. ETSY is a great example of quality hand-made and useful items.
The World of Apps
This seems to be the latest in digital trends. Most stores have an app to capture the mobile shopper. It is so convenient to earn cash for the holiday by downloading the ones you prefer and getting paid to sell things you have lying around your home.
Here are a few companies that will compensate you for each month you have their app INSTALLED on your device.
Surveys for cash…Taking surveys is a tried and true method that I think everyone online have done at one point or the other. There are many companies that offers surveys for cash, prizes or sweepstakes entries. Depending on the company will depend on the prize.
NIELSEN HOME-SCAN CONSUMER PANEL…Is a popular consumer survey company that conducts surveys. You can sign up for the app on their site and you will be sent a scanner for you to scan your purchases monthly. There are also surveys to be done and compensation comes in the form of points that are accumulated for gift prizes.
Swag Bucks>>>Is one of the more legitimate companies, offering various chances to get points< which can be redeemed for gift card and prizes.
Apps You Could Earn cash with
Book Scout is an app that allows you to scan the IBS code for a book and then a number of quotes from book vendors will pop up. If a quote is accepted, a shipping label become available for printing.
Ebates will give you $5 for joining and every dollar spent you will receive a cash back. The power of making money for the holiday becomes easier with Receipt hog
Foap– This app is simple for making photographs that you upload to the site’s market place and it will be priced at $10.
So, being strapped for cash doesn’t mean all is at lost. There are several ways to earn cash over the holidays without the hard lifting.
Have yourself a blessed holiday and don’t over spend
So, the big boys and gals, Google is at it again. When they first came out with the Humming bird folks thought that was bad. Then came the Penguin which was rather brutal for some. We are drawing closer to 2017 and we can expect BrainRank which is the new ALOGORITHM Google is coming out with.
With Facebook and Yahoo having their own algorithm, there is going to be competition for Google. There will be new standards of evaluating sites and ranking them.
Keywords as we know it will change. Long tail keywords will be more like sentences. This will be more conversational. It’ll be like talking to Siri. Microsoft has already adjusted Cortana so, it’s more conversational or more human.
Get ready or even More Voice Search
There will be a lot more voice search both on mobile device and on your computer. Mobile searches are up and Google has recognized this. Hence. They are going to be ranking sites that have moved over to the AMP. With Google indexing, they want content to be their criterion, not loading time of the site.
Forget those 3,000 words post
We have been schooled for so long about writing long detailed post. However, with the trend that’s on, now Google has changed its mind once again. No longer are epic post favorable for ranking. Google is looking for condensed post or quick videos. We see where this is coming from, everything is quick and condense. Take a look at the website delish, delicious food prep in a few minutes. Look at snap chat, video message in second. Everything is short and to the point.
Google wants people to feel safe
Is your site secure? Do you have the http? Google found that people want the confidence of knowing a site is safe and they are respecting peoples wish. Move your site to a secure domain and improve your SERP RANKING.
There are more changes coming be sure of that. Whether everything pans out, keep in mind a change is coming and how we view SEO.
The essence of this blog is to make money from home and be poor no more and know the power of food .This is an important topic that resonate with a lot of people in today’s society. However, the goal of this blog is weight loss and I personally thinks it correlates to leading a healthier, better life and leaving poorness behind. Food and Money: The power struggle is real and money can determine the state of a person’s health. There are several ways to gain good health while trying to reach one’s goals.
Having all the money in the world and not being able to enjoy it because of ill-health is useless. Losing weight and becoming a healthier person will enable you to enjoy the fruits of your hard labor. Too many times individuals are caught in the make money craze and forsake their health, which is essential for a great life.
A persons ideal weight is an individual assessment, to determine the state of health and to set goals. Their situation may stem from various reasons, for examples stress due to over work and not being able to exercise or just mere over eating. Just look around in today’s society and the fast food joints, the food is cheap and fattening. If you are poor that’s the place you are moist likely to eat. Hence, if you are not careful you’ll end up poor and fat.
Knowing the power of food
Food has the power to outwit an individual and the control to keep them fat. It has the ability to blindside and make them lose their will power. Usually a person will use a new diet to lose weight and get their health in check. But what is needed is a new way of thinking, the brain must learn other coping mechanism. Ways of coping with stress, finding the will to exercise and ways to eliminate destructive eating habits is the individual’s responsibility.
Strategy for drop the weight
Make conscious effort to eat healthy and make better choices
Develop a mantra that resonate with you. Mine is ‘I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens me.’ This works when ever I am confronted with sweet delicious desserts which are high in fat and sugar. The change that needs to come is from inside. The mind has to be ready for change. The brain is what control the body and the emotions.
You will have to take it a strep further and purge your home and working environment. Get rid of sweet indulgences, unhealthy things that willk derail your weight loss efforts. The hidden snacks on your desk or cupboards must be gone. Avoid foods that contain sugar,corn syrup,dextrose,sucrose, fructose, honey, molasses sorghum or any type of artifical sweetener. With these measures taken you are reeducating your brain to want the healthier foods and crave what is healthy.
No sugar forever? Not necessarily. Later when your taste buds have changed and sugar is no longer your KYPTONITE., you maybe able to add a small about to you diet. Avoid sweets for a month and experience the dramatic results.
Just like making m0ney, good health is there for anyone that desire it. All it take is to assess where you are and the end result. Take action and develop your staying power.
It’s not like there are not enough beauty products on the market, but people are concerned about what goes on their skin.

When you hear about compound you automatically think of investing and reinvesting of interest. Which in a sense is correct, but we are not talking about finance, today? Our topic will be compounding of daily activities to gain success. We are going to look into the compound effect and how it can transform your home-base business, when done properly.
The Compound Effect
Money, money, money everyone wants it, but only some know how to make it from home. Those that know how to make it use a certain method and that method is the compound effect. Recently I read a book written by Darren Hardy, The Compound Effect. It is an easy read, but it is my favorite book read so far. This book sits on my coffee table because I reference it when I am feeling impatient with something I am doing.
Darren teaches that taking small seemingly insignificant steps over time, consistently will earn massive results. Research shows the concept works every time. We live in an ever fast paced world, an instant gratification period. Most people don’t have the patience to build up upon on anything. They want it now, whether it is financial, love, family or the job. In a home business doing actionable task consistently over time can catapult your business to huge success.
Leave Bad Habit Habits
It is not easy moving away from the “I want it now” attitude because society has instilled this. These are bad habits that are forged over time. There comes a time when changes are needed in order to accomplish greatness. Let repeating positive steps become a habit in your life. Science shows that pattern of thoughts and actions repeated many times create what’s called “neuron signature” or “brain grove.” Attention feeds habit. Do the action consistently and it will become a natural part of you. This how the compound effect works.
Anything is achievable with consistent repetition whether it in business, personal growth, health, wealth or relationship. I personally am growing this blog with consistent content and personal growth that I pass along to you my readers.
When searching for a home-based business one has to dig deep into their arsenal and come out with different innovative ideas. I did just that and came up with a home-based baking business.
If you are someone that enjoys baking and making tasty treats, then starting a baking business maybe right up your alley. Do a self-evaluation and some research to ensure that you have what it takes to start a home business. It’s not just about baking up some goodies, there are more intricate tasks involved. The business side of a home-based baking business involves basic book keeping, great customer service and marketing. These are the basic fundamentals for a business. Remember this a sustainable business you are aiming at.
Introducing Yourself as a Business Owner
If family and friends are aware of your skills in the kitchen, you can inform them that you are starting a business. Introduce yourself as a business owner. Most times they will support you. Also ask to be referred to their friends and acquaintances. Offer your services for birthday parties, anniversary celebration, weddings and dinner parties; the opportunities are endless.
Another great way to get business is to bake up a batch of your product and take it to any small café, restaurants or pastry shop in your town. Give a little presentation of what you can offer and your price. More than likely, they’ll give you a try. My motto is “nothing try is nothing done”.
A great idea is to let people sample your products. Have a tasting party and invite family, friends and neighbors to try and critique your goods. This is a great way to get your name out there and improve your products. The best advertisement is word of mouth for your home-based bakery business.
The Technical Part of Home-Base Baking Business
While some states and provinces allow you to bake and resell without a permit, several do require one. In the USA it is a 20-C Food Processor Permit. An inspection is usually carried out at the place of the potential bakery business, if things are up to par, then a permit will be issued. However, if things are not up to the public health inspector’s(Canada)
standard, then the business will not be approved. I am saying this so as to save you a lot of headache and money. A few years ago I open a small gourmet café in Toronto and had the place renovated to suit me. I however, did not call the ministry of public health to do an inspection before I opened. When I did opened they came a month later and did the inspection, to my dismay there a number of minor thing that weren’t in place and that ended up costing money and time. I could have saved myself all that hassle if I had done my research correctly.
Getting insurance is another necessity for the business. It is always better to be covered than have something happen and you are not.
Your products should be done to the best of your. If you take an order, ensure you are able to complete the obligation. It’s better to not take the order, rather than disappoint a customer. ability. Consistency is what’s going to BREAK OR MAKE YOUR BUSINESS.
So, finding a home-based business that one can do is pretty as thinking about your talents and skill and how you could create an income from them.
