Careers and opportunities in the home security industry

Hello there!  I'm Matt Chadwick at the business desk.
For the last few weeks I have been preaching to you about the importance of paying closer attention to your home computer security.  Now I am going to turn things around and ask this very important and loaded question:
Have you ever thought of going into the home computer security business?  This is a very fast growing and demand driven arena and one where demand is beginning to outpace supply.  Why?  Because there are simply not enough home computer security providers to keep up with those awful hackers and identity thieves.
As you read through our headlines for this week, please give some serious thought to my question.
At the business desk, I'm Matt Chadwick bidding you a great day.

Important answers to consumers concerns

Top of the morning to you out there!  I'm Donna J Jodhan at the business desk.
Well, two more days till the end of the month.  We have been extremely busy this past week fielding your comments and questions and I would like to thank you for all of your feedback.
Unfortunately I am unable to answer all of your questions but I always try to do my best.  So, without much more ado, let me get to work on this week's e-bag.
 
Question from Jane Creigerr:  I am thinking of becoming a child care worker and I am wondering about the possibilities for this type of career?
Answer:  Jane, if you speak a second language, hopefully for you Spanish, I truly believe that the opportunities for you have just opened up and the sky can practically be the limit for you.  Please take a look at the article below that I have referred you to.  Spanish is America's second language and more and more Hispanics are placing their kids in the capable hands of child care workers and if you can converse in both languages, then you may very well have a great edge over your competitors.

Question from Tim O'Keath:  Are we becoming more aware of the needs of our aging population?
Answer:  Tim, I believe so.  Many companies and governments appear to be on board when it comes to understanding the needs of our seniors and retirees and our aging baby boomers.  You will find that as time goes on, the needs and demands of our aging population are going to play more and more of a prominent role in the market plans of both governments and companies.  The national attitude is only bound to shift towards all that surrounds our aging population.  Please give a read to my reference below.

Question from Bridget Gerber:  Donna, what is your take on the benefits of taking pills to combat depression?
Answer:  Bridget, I am not going to get into a discussion on this subject because I do not feel qualified to respond.  However, I have found an article which I feel will help to answer your question.  Hope it helps.

Question from Eric Sharner:  Do you think that aging baby boomers have something to contribute when it comes to passing on their knowledge and experience?
Answer:  Eric, Definitely so.  At least, I hope so.  The aging baby boomers were the kids of the 60s who wanted to change the world, and I truly believe that they will be given a second chance to do so now, as they ride off into the sunset of retirement.  I hope that my reference below backs up my statement.  Aging baby boomers have a lot to pass on to the younger generation.  Experience wise, skills wise, and knowledge wise.  We must not waste their unlimited resources.

Question from Hannah Bajinzky:  Donna, what are your thoughts on the opinion that anxiety has taken over our lives?
Answer:  Hannah,  I do believe that anxiety has become more and more of a main stay in our lives.  The 21st century has brought us a lot of new challenges, new technology, and many new headaches and all of this is being attributed to having and causing more anxiety in our lives.  Maybe my reference below will help to shed some more light on this topic.  My personal answer to combating anxiety is to stay positive and take things as they come.  Don't try to force the pace.  Just ride with the flow as they say.

Question from Chelsea Bernstein:  I am not sure what type of career I can hope for if I study languages at college.  Do you have any suggestions?
Answer:  Chelsea, I truly believe that anyone who decides to choose languages as a career will be very pleasantly surprised when they enter the job market.  Languages is becoming more and more important to such things as global trade and global expansion.  I believe that the sky can be the limit for anyone who wants to go into the study of foreign languages and in the coming years you may very well see that more companies will be seeking foreign language professionals.  Please give a read to my reference below.  I was very excited when I read this article.

Question from Heather Lavine:  Donna, do you really think that the problem of depression is as serious as they are making it out to be?
Answer:  Heather,  Very much so.  The majority of mental experts right here in America are continually warning us about the growing stranglehold that depression is weaving around our society and if you would like further evidence, then please read the reference that I have provided for you below.  It is really a very serious situation that needs all of us to come together and fight as a society.

Question from Mark McKenzie:  Are there any hints that you can give me for a sector that may be expected to grow  for the near future?
Answer:  Mark,  Yes.  One of my favorites is the managed services and software sector.  With more and more small businesses coming online being buoyed by governments that are only too anxious to see the rapid development of the small business economy, I believe that this sector has every right to look forward to a very bright future.  This is not only happening here in America but also in several other countries as well.  In addition, there are several medium sized companies and even some large corporations that are also turning to the managed services and software sector for assistance and support.  They are out sourcing more and more to this sector.  I hope that my reference below gives you some more insight into this topic.

I am out of time for this week but I must not forget to leave you with my tip of the week.
When you next go to choose your long distance company, be sure to read the fine print.  Many of them are constantly telling you that for precious few cents a minute you can call anywhere in the world.  What they are not telling you that if you only speak for one minute, the charge is a big fat dollar or that for the first minute of a call the charge is also a big fat dollar. 
At the business desk, I am Donna J Jodhan wishing you a terrific day.

A booming trend for you to discover

Good day everyone!  I'm Jeff N Marquis at the business desk.
Well, we are now in the midst of a very interesting trend.  One where we have a very booming market of very influencial consumers, where demand is real, and where demand is way ahead of supply.  We also have consumers who are just dying to know as much as they can in order to make important decisions that will affect the rest of their lives after they retire and we have practically hundreds of thousands of companies that are out there searching for the products and services that they can offer to this very liquid market.

Time to start paying attention to making those important decisions

Hey there!  I'm Alix Shadonnay at the business desk.
Another week in the books and time for you to spend a quiet weekend with your family.  Or is it going to be a quiet weekend for you?
Are you planning to enjoy your weekend or are you going to spend it worrying about things which you feel are just out of your reach or control?  Things like making the decision to change jobs, companies, or careers?  Or something as big as deciding to open up your own business?
Are you feeling stymied about everything and don't quite know where to turn?
We don't have the magic solution for you but what we have is a compiled list of very important headlines that may just help you to forget your inhibitions.  A powerful list of ideas and suggestions to help you relax a bit more and look at things with a clear head.
This weekend, please take a few minutes to review our list.
 
Before I leave you, here are our Amazon picks of the week.
  The Truth Twisters: A Novelplus
By Josh McDowell
This is a book with very interesting reading.  Extremely insightful and very attention-grabbing.  It is a novel, but one that goes far beyond the bounds of being a novel.
 
The deceivers
By Josh McDowell
We chose a second book by this particular author because this book is also very insightful and for a novel it really stretches the reader's mind and imagination. 
Both books are must reading for those of you who really want to learn and experience.
At the business desk, I'm Alix Shadonnay wishing you a great weekend.

The importance of listening to the demands of your feelings

Good morning!  I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk.
When is the last time you listened to your mind and soul?  No, not a joke.  I will ask this question in a clearer manner.  When is the last time you paid attention to your feelings?  Maybe today, yesterday, last week, last month, or maybe a very long time ago?  So long ago that you don't even remember?
Well, according to the experts, it's one of our biggest problems.  Not only do we not listen to others, we are no longer listening to ourselves and this is why the levels of stress, anxiety, and depression are rising so rapidly in America. 
we need to start paying attention to ourselves.  Listen more to ourselves and understand ourselves, our feelings and the warning signs that tell us that we need some help and support when the going gets tough.
Let us help you!  Take a few minutes and read some of our headlines below.  Trust me, you owe it to yourself.

Important answers to consumers concerns

Top of the morning to you out there!  I'm Donna J Jodhan at the business desk.
I can't believe that it is almost the end of July.  Where has this month gone to?
Well, it's that time again for me to open up our e-bag and this week I have a lot of questions to answer but before I start I would again like to thank those of you who took the time to provide us with your feedback.  We can only get better through you and with you.
 

Question from Alex Summerfield:  We are always hearing about the state of our mental health in America, but what about what's going on in Britain and Europe?
Answer:  Alex, I don't think that things are any better off in Britain and Europe or even anywhere else.  I recently found an article that talks about a mental crisis going on in Britain and this particular article talks about the banking industry.  Truth be told, stress, anxiety, and depression seem to be on the rise everywhere you look and is not just an American problem.  It is a global problem and several global governments are very concerned.  Please check out my reference below.

Question from Frank Delpina:  I know that identity theft has been a great concern for many years now but what can seniors do in order to protect themselves from it?
Answer:  Frank, the first thing that seniors can do in order to protect themselves is for them to recognize that identity theft is indeed a real threat and in addition, it appears that more and more identity thieves are targeting seniors.  So with this in mind, I have chosen an article for you to read.  Please see below.

Question from Eva Cole:  Donna, do you think that parents are responsible for passing on feelings of anxiety to their kids?
Answer:  Eva, I would be the first to tell you that I am not qualified to offer an expert response so I am going to direct you to an article below that I recently found on the Internet.  I hope that this helps.

Question from Gary Bolder:  I get really confused when it comes to protecting my home computer system.  What can you tell me?
Answer:  Gary, I think that I may have the perfect article for you to read.  Of course, there are so many things that you can do but to start with, read my reference below and after this, you should go shopping for some good anti virus protection software and if you have anymore questions after this, then you can write to us again.

Question from Paula Gross:  My mom recently asked me how could she go about protecting herself from identity theft.  I wasn't sure what to say so here I am.  What should seniors be watching for when it comes to identity theft?
Answer:  Paula,  One of the most common types of identity thefts presently facing seniors is medical identity theft.  Medical identity theft is on the rise these days and is especially being directed against seniors.  Please read my reference below and share it with your mom.  The experts are beginning to hint that we should be paying more attention to medical identity theft against seniors.  It appears that identity thieves feel that this type of identity theft may be one of the easiest to carry out at the present time because seniors along with the disabled are so vulnerable.
  Medical Identity Theft Hurts Seniors, Becoming Bigger Problem

Question from Justin Marchandise:  My question is this!  My parents and friends are constantly bugging me about spending too much time on the Internet.  They say that I am socially disabled and that I could end up being a recluse.  Is this true?
Answer:  Justin,  the experts are constantly talking about Internet addiction.  I am not really qualified to give you an answer but I have managed to find an article that talks about your concerns.  Please give a read to this one.  I would venture to say that I am not too keen on anyone spending too many hours on the Internet.  I do believe that we can sure improve our social skills with face to face and phone chat contact.

Question from Clair Paxton:  Donna, I saw your comments last week on retirees and seniors being more active and healthy than they were some years ago.  Do you really think that this is true?
Answer:  Clair,  This seems to be the case.  The seniors and retirees of today are more affluent, more active, and more daring.  They are traveling more, playing more sports, and seeking services and activities that will keep them healthy and active for a longer time.  I think that the article below will back up my comments.

Question from Darius Christopherson:  Has Microsoft helped or hindered in the development of the small business economy?
Answer:  Darius,  I believe that for the most part, Microsoft has helped.  It has managed to develop a lot of technology and services that can be taken advantage of by small businesses.  Microsoft has definitely helped to improve technology and take it to new heights and levels and as things stand today, small businesses have many more opportunities and ways to expand and improve their revenues and customer bases.  In addition, Microsoft continues to introduce strategies and methods to help small businesses stay on their feet.  I know, technology could be a royal headache at times, but there is always a learning curve to new things and technology is no different.  I have included an article for you below.  Hope it helps.

Question from Jennifer Seanfeld:  I wonder out loud, are there advantages to learning a new language?  This comes from my kids.

I am out of time for this week but before I leave you, here is my tip of the week.
If you're thinking of publishing your own book, then you need to take some extra time to examine the options that the various self-publishing companies out there are offering.
My one word of caution is that based on several emails that we have received in the past, you should pay particular attention to one called Booksurge.  Not a very good company when it comes to customer service and support.  Stay far away from this particular company.  One of our clients  has known them for almost five years now and during this time they have not seen any attempt on their part to improve their service or support.
At the business desk, I am Donna J Jodhan wishing you a terrific day and week ahead.

Time to pay more attention to developing trends for seniors, retirees, and aging baby boomers

Good day everyone!  I'm Jeff N Marquis at the business desk.
Have you been paying attention to the latest trends when it comes to what retirees and seniors are doing and thinking?  Do you know what they are demanding and why?  Are you able to keep up with their spending habits, entertainment likes and dislikes, and favorite travel vacation spots?  Do you know what most aging baby boomers are planning to do when they retire?  Most of all, have you given thought to expanding your businesses to accommodate the demands of these three types of consumers?
I say never too late to plan and execute.  Please take a few minutes to read our latest headlines on seniors, retirees, and aging baby boomers.
At the business desk, I'm Jeff N Marquis wishing you a pleasant day.

Work smarter and not harder

Good Saturday morning to you!  It's the beginning of another weekend and we are sure that many of you will be searching for some interesting and what we call reassuring reading this weekend.  Or maybe some confidence boosting reading.  So for your weekend review, we have chosen a very insightful editorial.
One that has been written by a very insightful woman.  She is the president of a dynamic small business, and despite her many challenges, she continues to ride the waves in style.  She is not afraid of the unknown, and despite her blindness she continues to defy the odds and make her mark.
Here now is her editorial of the week.

I think that I may have just figured out something very important in my life.  I need to start working smarter, not harder.  Up till now I used to think that the harder I worked, the better it would be for me.  I used to burn the candle at both ends by working more than 50 hours a week.  I used to really throw myself into my job and double my efforts to please my clients and even beat their deadlines.  I used to multi task all the time because I honestly felt that it was the only way for me to succeed but guess what!  Whereas I was doing well enough in my business, my personal life along with my health was suffering.
 
Then last year I lost my elder brother to cancer.  Before he passed on he told us he believed that his illness had been caused by too much stress on the job.  As an airline captain he had to spend the majority of his married life away from home and he definitely worked harder and not smarter.  I am still struggling to come to terms with his loss and every day I remember his words.  Working harder does not necessarily mean working smarter.  I am in no way saying that stress is a forerunner to cancer but many health experts are strongly suggesting that there may be a link between the two.
 
As a blind professional woman, I have to work that bit harder in order to keep up with my competitors because like it or not it takes me longer to do things.  The same thing applies to my household chores and these are just facts of life that I have to accept.  What I realized a few months ago is that if I don't change my lifestyle soon it will definitely change me soon.  So, with this in mind, I have made a few changes to the way I do things.  I am still working hard but now I am working smart.  How am I doing this?  Well, here's what I have started to do.
 
I give myself a mental health holiday every week and on the designated day I do what I enjoy doing outside of work.  Things like ice skating, playing chess, fooling around on my electronic keyboard, reading, relaxing, socializing, and cooking.  I have made it a habit not to think about work on my day off and I leave the office to my team.  I enjoy what the outdoors has to offer me and in short I take precious time to smell the roses and appreciate my loved ones.  Working smarter means that I now prioritize my tasks.  I do what I enjoy doing and not what I feel obligated to do.  I work best at tasks I love the most and I work worst at tasks that I feel pressured to do.  So I now work at what I love and enjoy.
 
I take brief mental breaks between projects.  Each day I allocate five to 10 minutes to dream and this helps me to replenish my creative juices.  I take time to eat properly and there is also time to make at least 1 social phone call per day.  Whenever I feel mentally tired I leave my desk and go for a brief walk.  Finally, I ensure that the projects I undertake are ones that will bring me personal satisfaction.  Life is too short to not enjoy what you are doing.
 
Try working smarter and not harder.  It's working for me and I'm feeling really good about myself, my life and my job.
Have a great summer.

If you're tired enough you will take action

Greetings everyone!  I'm Jayna Sheffield at the business desk.
Well, it's Friday, the end of the week, and you can barely drag yourself home to the family after a very long week at the office.
Aren't you tired of doing this?  Day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year?  How long has it been now that you have been putting off that all-important decision to make a change for the better?  One that will not only benefit you, but your family as well?
Okay, you say, too much trouble but I am here to tell you that it is not as difficult as you may think.
Let us help you.  Take a look at our news headlines below.  You owe it to yourself to at least take a peak but before you do so I am going to leave you with our Amazon picks of the week.
At the business desk, I'm Jayna Sheffield wishing you a blissful weekend.

What consumers are asking most about

Top of the morning to you out there!  I'm Donna J Jodhan at the business desk.
It has been extremely warm for the past few days but hopefully it will cool down soon for us to feel more comfortable.
I would like to thank the many of you who wrote in with your questions and comments.  Unfortunately I am unable to answer all of them but I'll do my best to answer as many this week as I can.  So, it's time for me to get down to work and open up our bulging e-bag.
 
Question from Martin Greenwood:  How can I learn more about job opportunities across America and even in Europe and Asia?
Answer:  Martin, there are several ways for you to learn more and I am going to give you an url where you can find a lot of very useful information.  This website is packed with very interesting and valuable ideas and you would be surprised to learn where you can find that illusive information.  There are so many opportunities for you to explore and you would be amazed at the types of opportunities both at home and abroad.  Check this out:

Question from Christian Carlson:  What are the experts saying when it comes to how debt worries are controlling our lives these days?
Answer:  Christian, this is no joke.  As the U.S slips further into recession, more and more Americans are becoming more and more stressed out and the levels of depression, stress,  and anxiety are rising at break neck speeds.  As a matter of fact, the health experts are beginning to give more serious warnings with regard to these levels and they are saying that debt depression is starting to get out of control.
Debt depression is a fairly new term that has been coined by the health experts and they go on to say that this condition is threatening in a big way to take control of our lives and of those around us.  The time has come for us to do something concrete to combat it.
Please read the reference that I have provided below.  You will get a better sense of what I am saying.

Question from Denise Barker:  Hi Donna, I would like you to tell me, in your opinion, what is one of the most worrisome concerns facing our baby boomers today?
Answer:  Denise, this is a very hard question to answer but as a baby boomer myself and speaking for myself and for most of my friends, I believe that one of the most worrisome challenges facing us baby boomers today is taking care of our elderly parents.  No doubt I am sure that many would disagree but this is only my opinion.  The experts often refer to aging baby boomers as the sandwich generation and this is because on the one hand we are being faced with having to take care of our elderly parents and on the other, we have to look after our kids and put them through college.
I have a reference below for you to check out.

Question from Chad Lamont:  I recently read an article that spoke about investors becoming more and more worried about being able to protect their nest eggs.  I am one of those and I would like to know if you have any tips on how to better protect one's nest egg?
Answer:  Chad, I myself am constantly seeking safer ground for my nest egg.  There is no doubt that investors are becoming more and more worried about being able to protect and preserve their nest eggs and I am one of those.  I know that the news is not too good at the present time but there is not much that we can do about it right now.  Maybe the reference that I have included below may or may not help to calm your nerves.  I think that one of the important things to keep in mind is that if you can identify the problems and difficulties, it is half the battle won; but if you are unexpectedly confronted by the unexpected, then it is not good.  So, I hope that my reference below helps you in some way.

Question from Erin Founder:  Do you think that what seniors are demanding these days are any different to what our parents demanded when they were their age?
Answer:  Erin, I am not really sure but I do know this.  Today's retirees seem to be a lot more active than retirees of about 20 years ago.  They are getting into more activities, are socializing more, and are traveling more.  I am including some info below for you to check out.  I hope that it helps to clarify things a bit for you.

Question from Matt Jansen:  I am really confused when it comes to understanding how to go about getting into the different types of Internet ventures.  Can you give me some guidance?
Answer:  Matt, o boy!  This is a very huge question with no clear cut answers.  So, I am going to take the easy way out and refer you to some info below.  My take on trying to figure out which type of Internet business venture is best is this:  Read as much as you can about the more popular and safest opportunities for you.  Examine each very carefully and balance the advantages against the disadvantages.  Be very watchful for empty schemes, hackers, schemers, and those ventures that promise a lot but in reality and logically they really can't.
I hope this helps.

Question from Cathy Neil:  Do you think that depression is a stigma in the workplace?  I mean, is it still a stigma?  More now, or on the decline?

Widening gap between hackers and safety

Hi everyone!  I'm Heather DeMarco at the business desk.
There is a real and tangent widening gap between the hacker's ability to reap havoc with our home computers, and our ability to stop them.  For too long hackers have been made to feel that they can get away with doing whatever they want and whenever they want to our home computers and to our personal information.  For too long we have allowed them to take possession of our personal lives and I am saying today, no more!  The time has arrived for us to start reversing this trend and why not do it by starting to take a more vested interest in those helpful hints and tips that several experts are offering on the Internet at absolutely no cost?  The time has come for us to start taking better care of our privacy, our confidentiality, and our personal information. 
Let us help you!  Take a few minutes and read our tidbits and headlines for this week.
At the business desk, I'm Heather DeMarco wishing you a pleasant day.

Stress, anxiety, and depression on the rise

Good morning!  I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk. 
How many of you are aware of the growing concern with regard to a specific mounting crisis presently sweeping across America?  No, I am not referring to the credit crunch!  No, I am not referring to the worsening economy nor am I referring to the rising oil prices.  I am referring to the steep rise in stress, anxiety, and depression both in the workplace and at home.  It is simply no longer enough for us to turn a blind eye to this crisis or to throw up our hands and say that we don't know what to do.  The time has come for us to tackle this crisis head on and we at the business desk are doing our part by sharing important items of news with you so that you can start to take action.  Please read our selections for this week and use it to start taking action!
At the business desk, I'm Kerry J Harrison wishing you a great day.

Important answers to important questions

Top of the morning to you out there!  I'm Donna J Jodhan at the business desk.
I hope that everyone on both sides of the border enjoyed their holidays last week.  I was glad to have the time off but now it's back to work for me and time to open up our bulging e-bag.  This week I have pulled a number of questions from our readers so let me hop to it! 
 
Question from Scott Chippersac:  Donna, what can you tell me about the benefits of affiliate marketing?
Answer:  Scott, I think that there can be a lot of benefits to be derived from affiliate marketing.  However, it may be better for someone who is getting into this type of marketing for the first time to join an affiliate program first to see how it works before setting up their very own. 
Affiliate marketing allows you to sell products offered by others and some people have been known to make sizable and solid incomes from affiliate marketing.  Many experts offer the advice that it may be better to join affiliate programs that sell related products.  So for example, you can join an affilate program that sells flowers, another that sells gift baskets, and yet another that sells greeting cards.  There is a relationship among all three products.  I am including a reference below that will give you some very useful info on affiliate marketing.

Question from Shana Reed:  I recently read that more and more seniors are volunteering their time at nursing homes, and other places.  What can you tell me?
Answer:  Shana, it seems so.  From some of the recent studies published in the United States, it appears that more and more seniors are volunteering at not just nursing homes, but also at non-profit organizations and they are not the only ones doing so.  Pre-retirees are also doing the same.  If you would like to know more about what seniors are doing these days then you may want to check out our weekly Monday feature at http://untappedwealth.com/businessdesk.html.  I am also including some additional info for you below.

Question from Ben Harrington:  What are your thoughts on opportunities for bilingual telephone translators?
Answer:  Ben, I am going to give you some info below that will answer your question.  As for my thoughts on this subject, I truly believe that the need for bilingual phone translators is only going to increase with time and we will probably see a bulging demand in such areas as the health, medical, legal, and tele communication arenas.  The demand for bilingual phone translators is growing right across North America and it is a field that has the potential to offer very lucrative financial and personal satisfaction.  If you would like to learn about other types of opportunities for translators plus more, then you may want to check out the weekly blog at www.translationpeople.com/free-useful-info.html.  Here is the info that I promised you.

Question from Christoff Bourg:  Can you shed some light on how Americans and everyone else are dealing with the growing credit squeeze?  Especially so in the United States?
Answer:  Christoff, many mental health professionals are becoming more and more concerned about the growing number of cases of stress, anxiety, and depression among Americans and they are attributing this to so many persons having to deal with the growing credit crunch in America.  This is a real concern and everyone is just crossing their fingers that the problem can be dealt with sooner than later.  There may not be a ready solution to the credit crunch, but in order to preserve the mental health of our nation, we have to find ready solutions to cope with and combat the problems arising out of the deteriorating mental health of our country.  Please check out the info that I have provided below.

Question from Gary Houser:  Is China really for real?  I mean, as a travel agent, does China offer me any opportunity to expand my business?
Answer:  Gary, according to the article that I found a few days ago, it does.  China is a booming economy with millions of consumers who are hungry to travel to the West, and sell their products and services outside of China.  In addition, millions of Americans are also hungry to sell their products and services to China, as well as travel there.  So, I urge you to check out the info that I have provided below.

Listening to the demands of seniors and aging baby boomers

Good day everyone!  I'm Jeff N Marquis at the business desk. 
Well, the holiday weekend is over and it's back to work.  I would like to start this new week by asking you the following questions:
How many of you are really in tune with what seniors and aging baby boomers are asking for and demanding?  Do you really know why they are demanding and asking for certain types of products and services?  Do you know why their spending habits are leaning in a certain direction?  Do you know what seniors and aging baby boomers are doing these days in order to prepare for their golden years? 
We have a ton of breaking news to share with you this week.  News that will help you to understand what these types of consumers are demanding but most importantly!  We have lots of news to help seniors and aging baby boomers keep up with the latest trends and happenings.  Our objective is to help seniors and aging baby boomers stay abreast of what is going on around them.  So, please check out our info below.
At the business desk, I'm Jeff N Marquis wishing you a pleasant day.

How small businesses can learn from a small woman

    Hello there!  It's the weekend and we at the business desk would like to help you get started.
The weekend is always a very busy time for most of us, but despite this, there is always a few minutes for us to catch up on things, regroup, and clear our minds and desks of unwanted and unnecessary things.  It's a time for us to recharge our batteries and rethink things and it is with this in mind that we present you with a newsletter that will hopefully help to spark and regenerate your minds and creative juices.
This newsletter is all about a very dynamic small business that has managed to defy all odds and its leader is someone that you can learn much from.  She is unique, a blind woman of mixed race who is known to her friends and associates as a trail blazer, and she continues to motivate others to reach for the sky!
Read the following newsletter and see for yourself.
From the business desk, we the business team wish you a very relaxing and productive weekend.
 
The Sterling Creations summer 2008 newsletter

Hello there!  Summer is finally here and I am pleased to be presenting you with our summer 2008 issue of our newsletter.  A lot of activity has taken place since our last newsletter and I hope that you can spare a few moments to share in our news for this quarter.

How to better protect your home security and your home computer

Hello there!  I'm Matt Chadwick at the business desk.
On the eve of our July 04 holiday, I would like to urge you to give some serious thought to how you can better protect your home security and most of all, your home computer. 
Too many of us are extremely lax when it comes to protecting our home computers and we only pay attention when it is a bit too late.  We are great at finding excuses and short on finding solutions.
So, we are going to help you get started.  During this long weekend, please take a few moments to review our selection of headlines and tidbits for this week.
On behalf of the business team, I'm Matt Chadwick wishing you a happy July 04 holiday.

Country in crisis due to unhealthy minds

Good morning!  I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk. 
As we prepare to celebrate yet another July 04 holiday, I am urging you to take some precious time to examine your mental health.  We are a country that is in crisis when it comes to dealing with our mental health.  We are very good at many things but unfortunately, we often get failing marks when it comes to taking care of our mental health.
Stress, anxiety, and depression are on the rise.  In the home and at the workplace.  We need to act now and as part of our way of helping out, we are providing you with weekly news that will help you to take better care of your minds and mental health.
At the business desk, and on behalf of the team at the business desk, I'm Kerry J Harrison wishing you a happy July 04 holiday.

Important answers to troubling questions

Top of the morning to you out there!  I'm Donna J Jodhan at the business desk. 
I am going to start off by wishing our many Canadian readers a happy Canada day birthday.  Happy birthday Canada!
This week I am going to do things a wee bit differently and I hope that you are happy with my changes.  So, let's get going!  Time for me to open our e-bag.
 
Question from Mark Honeywell:  I would like to know what your thoughts are re having to deal with a mortgage past retirement?
Answer:  Mark, I am not really a fan of having to deal with any heavy financial burden after retirement and this includes a mortgage.  Ideally, when we retire, we should do our best not to have to worry about those types of financial obligations that should be taken care of during our working days.  However, there are often those circumstances that prevent us from being able to pay off our mortgages before we retire.  Circumstances such as having to pay for our kids' college educations.  When we retire, it means that we can no longer depend on steady incomes and now we have to depend solely on our savings unless we can find a way to generate new incomes.  I am including a reference below for you to check out.  Hope it helps.

Question from Dana Farber:  Donna, do you think that many retirees would like to work after they retire?
Answer:  Dana, there seems to be a developing trend in the United States that is suggesting that many retirees are turning to new careers upon retirement and there could be several factors for this.  Factors such as:  Retirees wanting to keep active, retirees wanting to find jobs that they've always wanted to work at but did not get the opportunity to do so during their working days, retirees having the need to earn extra income, retirees who need to pay off lingering debts, retirees just wanting to keep working.  I have included a reference below for you to check out.

Question from Rob Berger:  Are more Americans really turning to the home business option as an alternative?
Answer:  Rob, according to the reference that I have provided below, yes.  It appears that more and more Americans, and persons globally, are turning to the home business option as you have so nicely coined it.  Home businesses seem to be springing up everywhere and Americans are taking the time to do their homework before venturing out of the workplace and into their own ventures.  See if you agree with the info provided below.

Question from Jackie Dumont:  I would like your opinion on the overtime problem presently racking our workplace?
Answer:  Jackie, if you are referring to the issue of the link between too much overtime is leading to increasing stress and anxiety in the workplace, then I'll let you check out the info that I have supplied below.  With regard to my personal opinion, I believe that too much overtime is not good for several reasons:  It can lead to stress and depression both at home and at the workplace.  It can lead to burnout in the workplace, and it can put a lot of pressure on family life as well as relationships among workers.  I hope that the info that I have given below helps to shed more light on this topic.

I am out of time for this week but let me close with my tip of the week.
What are seniors and retirees most seeking these days?  Two things!  First, self-help and how-to courses in computer and Internet technology, languages, cooking, gardening, carpentry, and financial management.  Second, entertainment like coffee evenings and games parties.
I'm Donna J Jodhan wishing you a great day, and extending all best wishes to America on their July 04 birthday.  Happy birthday America!
