Be Your Own Boss

Recent data from the Institute of Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) revealed that about 29% of all business owners in America are women. This figure is up from 26% as recently as 1997.

In the last decade, there has been a growth of 68% in women-owned firms compared to only 47% growth for all businesses on record.

One aspect of women-owned businesses that stands out is the 265% increase in the number of minority women who have stepped up to be their own boss.

According to Fortune Magazine, women interested in starting their own small business should pursue certifications in their field to increase credibility.

Women entrepreneurs should seek out other women to partner with and learn from. They should strive to build their customer base by actively marketing and emphasizing their unique talents and abilities

GET MORE ENERGY

Forget the energy drinks. A growing body of scientific evidence shows that energy drinks can have serious health effects, particularly in children, teenagers, and young adults. If you want a steady stream of energy without the ups and downs, dieticians recommend whole foods, grains, fruits and vegetables. The key to sustaining energy throughout the day is balance. Start the day with a portion of whole grain and fresh fruit.

Throughout the day, eat fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, beans and non-starchy vegetables in small portions. For a pick-me-up, research dietitian Aubrey Jarman recommends a slice of apple or one whole wheat cracker with peanut butter. Drink plenty of water. Chronic dehydration is one of the primary causes of tiredness and lack of energy. Meat and fish are part of a balanced diet, when eaten in moderation.

Moneywise

Easy ways to sell old smartphones

Americans are upgrading their smartphones at an average pace of every 32 months, according to the NPD Group. Instead of sticking the old phone into a drawer or throwing it away, however, many consumers can recoup some of the original cost by trading it in or selling it outright.

Those purchasing iPhones directly through Apple can take advantage of their trade-in program but nearly every major retailer and phone company, such as Best Buy or Verizon, will often offer an option to trade a phone in to reduce the cost of an upgraded phone.

Although these are the most accessible options, consumers can usually squeeze a little more value from their device by selling it themselves on sites like eBay, Swappa, or Gazelle if they are willing to do a bit more research and legwork.

Holiday Weight Gain? Not as Bad as You Might Think! People gain weight Holiday Weight Gain?

Not as Bad as You Might Think! People gain weight during the holidays, but not as much as they think, according to dietitian Cynthia Sass. Sass points to a 2009 study from Texas Tech University that followed 48 men and 100 women for six weeks from Thanksgiving to Christmas. On average, the subjects gained one and a half to two pounds each.

While this gain isn’t terrible, it tends to stay on. Sass says weight creep is responsible for adults gaining 10 to 20 pounds over a 10 year period.

If you want to avoid that extra pound or two, Sass recommends drinking two cups of water before meals. One study found that adults who followed this prescription were able to shed 40 percent more weight during a 12-week diet period. Drinking water also makes us less hungry.

Finally, budget your carbs. Holidays are carb heavy with potatoes, cakes, pies, breads, and cookies. Try to choose just one carb item each day so you can indulge, but not at every single meal. If banana bread is on the menu for lunch, skip the toast and potatoes at breakfast and dinner.

Wishing You Joy and Peace!

It’s common these days to complain during the holidays about how commercialized the season has become. In fact, complaining about the holidays has become as much of a tradition as the holidays themselves.

Let’s break that tradition this year! Call it commercial if you want, but when your family members gather around the Christmas tree, each one hopes the gift delights the receiver.

Call it commercial, but when you light the last candle of the menorah and give the last gift, you hope you have given light and joy.

We hope that this year you’ll enjoy the fruits of all your good work. You are appreciated by your family, your employers and by us.

This year, let’s complain less, delight in the giving more, and open up our hearts and be thankful for the season. It maybe a little commercial but it sure is a lot of fun. Here’s hoping you’ll be joyous!

Why do spots come back?

Naturally you expect your carpets to look better after cleaning than before. So it may come as a surprise when some of the spots return. There are two reasons that this can happen: re-soiling from various residues and soil-wicking.
