Home Based Business Opportunities – Let’s Make it a Long Weekend

By Bill Schnarr

Ask anyone the best thing about a good home based business opportunity and they’ll tell you the same thing – the ability to make on-the-spot decisions about the little things that come up.

For example, your hard at work on your home based internet business and the phone rings. It’s your best friend, who lives out of town but is in the neighbourhood for a few hours on a stopover at the airport. Can you imagine the headaches it would cause if you tried to explain to your boss that you needed time off work because you wanted to go for a coffee with your friends? You’d be lucky if you had a job to come back to, if you even dared to step outside the building.

Working at home and making the most of your home based business opportunities would allow you the freedom to jump in your car and zip up to spend the afternoon with your friend. Time well spent, and surely something that would add to the rich fabric of your life.

What is your life worth to you? Sure, your Monday to Friday job may pay the bills, but we humans were not born tied to a clock. Living to work can lead to a miserable, lonely existence away from your friends and loved ones. That’s why so many people are turning away from traditional Monday to Friday jobs and looking to space for better business opportunities – in this case, cyberspace.

In fact, so many people, from professionals to college students, are deciding on home based business opportunities that they are changing the very face of the business world.

On top of traditional work at home jobs, such as writing and other artistic pursuits, there the internet has provided a springboard to launch hundreds of thousands of new careers around the world. These days, many home based opportunities are more than simply opening a little shoe repair store as a side gig. People are buying, selling, and marketing their way to successful, experience-rich lives and they’re doing it a few hours at a time.

The rest of the day, they’re busy making the most of their lives. They’re spending time with friends, their kids, or just taking the time to enjoy the things that they enjoy most. The ability to just drop everything at the drop of a hat and take off to do something fun in the middle of work is a great feeling. It gives you the feeling that you are in control of your life, and you are living it to the fullest potential.

On top of that, home based businesses are also lining their pockets. The earning potential of affiliate marketing as a home based business, for example, is virtually limitless. Successful affiliate marketers can make thousands of extra dollars a month in the time it takes to transfer the funds from their online payment accounts to their bank accounts.

Not only are they working from home and achieving these results, they are also travelling out of state to visit relatives and earning a bundle, or checking their accounts from their Hawaiian vacation hotel room and earning money…you get the point.

More freedom and more money. More importantly, a level of control in their lives that is unheard of in a regular Monday to Friday existence. It’s easy to see why these successful men and women have decided to make the most of their business opportunities.

The question is, why aren’t you?

to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game. "

When they think of creation, most people have in mind genius artists, musicians, painters or sculptors or scientists whose inventions had a true value for mankind.
The more people are “touched” by the creation, the more important the creation is considered. The best example is that of musicians like Mozart whose creation has touched the souls of billions of people and will continue to do so.
People do not generally pay a lot of attention to the person behind the creation or to the act of creation itself. Then another creator, director Milos Forman, creates a movie, Amadeus, and he unvails the man behind the creation. We then have a picture of what creation meant to Mozart together with all other aspects of his life, family, friends, social life. We wonder what was the drive allowing him to forget everything around him while he was creating. We can guess that this creation drive originated in his intuition that he may “touch” an impressive number of people and this surpassed everything else.
It may be that, as Einstein said “he was moving the centre of search of peace and stability..”. We will never know how much pain Mozart endured because of life misery or how happy he was as a creator.
Should Mozart have been our contemporary, would he have endured the same miseries, we may ask. Would he have received material compensation as recognition for his creation?
Such creators have allowed us, common people, to understand creation as the joy to create something for the sake of others, be they many or few.
Daniel Goleman has a very interesting definition of creation. He calls it “a state of trance” when our dedication is complete. Ordinary people have come to realize that, no matter how small a thing may be, when they invest themselves completely while achieving it, they too become creators. A great poet said “MAN’S DESTINY IS CREATION”.
A child who pays his full, enthusiastic attention while playing, is a simple example of creator. Adults too can create, as they reach a number of people in their lives. We can create a harmonious family, or we can create in our profession. We can be a teacher who teaches a child to learn instead of memorize. We can be a medical doctor, an IT specialist, a carpenter or a farmer who enjoys his work and shares his knowledge.
People are aware of a person who joyfully shares his knowledge. People love those who take joy in doing something, rather than those who know best how to do something. We can create our own collections (stamps, drawings). We can create the joy in practicing a sport (golf or birdwatching). We can create the joy to travel or to read or to surf the internet.
It is also possible that we do not create anything, not even the wealth of our families because we do not have the basic instrument: knowledge.
Knowledge means power, access to the information that allows creation: our own creation as individuals who are touched by others’ creation and our product offer that can “touch” others.
But each person is unique, has his own self knowledge, knowledge of his creation and of the environment, as creation of the society.
This is where the internet comes in. I would call it the eighth wonder of the world, though I would rank it first as importance and social impact. We cannot see it but we feel it and it offers the most valuable asset: information.
Information is the only resource that cannot be lost. As the president of Google puts it “internet will obviously influence elections because internet recalls everything that has ever been said”.
Not only that internet allows the creator and the one who wants his creation to meet, but it also makes the meeting profitable.
Internet means the world brought in your house and your “creation” offered to the world. Internet has changed the world and will continue to do so because knowledge is wealth.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an
optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.


When I was young I used to think that money was the most
important thing in life; now that I am old, I know it is.

The Art of Imagining

Whatever we imagine our reality to be, that is what it is. Is it really that easy? Can we imagine abundance, good health, unconditional love, happiness and peace? If that is the case, then why don’t we have those things right now? The answer is both simple and complex. The simple answer is because we don’t really believe that having everything that we want is that easy. The more complex answer is that we have forgotten how to practice the art of imagining. Because having what we want in our lives is as simple as learning how to imagine it.

Somewhere between imagining and reality lies experience. Experience comes from the past, and somewhere along the way our experience taught us that we can’t have what we want, that life is hard, that suffering precedes joy and even suffering does not guarantee that joy will follow. We know that because at one point in time we imagined what we wanted and when it arrived, it disappointed us or caused us pain. So we learn to ask for nothing or less than what we want and then expect that we would be dissatisfied with the results.

When we believe that past experience is the benchmark for the present, we relegate ourselves to creating a future that is a carbon copy of the past. As long as we believe this to be true, our present circumstances will always repeat the past. But if we allow ourselves to imagine something different, we can change that and create a different reality for ourselves. For that to happen we have to do two things:

be willing to try and

believe in our power to imagine our reality.

Until we truly make an effort to try to change our reality, we are not aware of how comfortable we are with the past. As soon as we try to change what we do, all sorts of fears, doubts and misgivings come crawling out of the depths of our unconscious, reminding us that while we’re not happy with our present circumstances, we have tried this before and unpleasant things happened. Each time we try to imagine, to bring our dreams into our reality, we must first deal with our fear. Our ability to imagine a different reality is based on what is stronger, our fear or our dreams. We must simply be willing to try, despite our fears, and start the process of imagining our reality.

The unpleasant experiences of the past can make us feel powerless and if our life currently feels like it’s spinning out of control, we don’t feel very capable when it comes to managing what we have already created, much less trying to create something else. When we look at our personal power from the standpoint of what has happened, we forget that all we are experiencing is what we created. If we remember that we were feeling powerless when we created those circumstances, we are looking at the situation from the right perspective. If we make decisions when we are feeling powerless, the result will manifest our powerlessness. But if we make decisions from a point of power, the result will be totally different.

Learning the art of imagining takes practice and focus. Start with something that you truly want and imagine that it is part of your reality. Feel the joy that you will experience when it is manifested in your life. Trust that everything you want will be brought to you with divine timing. Know that it is yours because you want it and the Universe always brings us what we want. Know that it can be yours because you deserve it—the Universe does not judge whether or not we are deserving. Finally, remember that you are powerful beyond measure; you are part of the Source and the power to imagine is yours once you believe it.

Friendship needs no proof ( Casares )

Friendship is a special form of unconditioned love, it needs no proof.
(A.B. Casares )

In my view friendship supposes full, courageous communication referring to the life problems the partner experiences and it means respect and total understanding of the fact that the partner may have a different opinion. It also means patience to thoroughly discuss an issue until reaching solutions.
Some people call me “a real friend” and this gives me the feeling of true “wealth”. They believe I am able to stimulate the best and most beautiful parts in them.
Friendship is a special form of unconditioned love, it needs no proof. (A.B. Casares)
My friends feel my joy to share with them a lot, to do wonderful things together.
Nothing compares with the joy of sending and receiving thoughts, feelings.
This way you feel alive.

There is nothing without love ( Marin Preda )

Love is never the same, it is always different depending on the person, place, time and times. One thing is certain, we all love something, somebody and love feeling makes the most important difference in our lives. It induces various effects in our lives: confidence, strength to continue what we have started, pleasure, joy. We become kinder, even protective, more serene, brighter, more honest...briefly more beautiful. In the absence of love the opposite is most often true. We humans have known this feeling since...the very beginning. Society evolved due to technology and communication tools and so did the ways of expressing this feeling.
But in substance, love did not change. Love for another human being is communication addressed mainly to soul and has no material dimensions transcending physical aspect of the body. All the good things that human societies have achieved have their roots in love, particularly love for another human being.
