The best places in the world to start a business

The best places in the world to start a business
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
When it comes to finding some of the best places in the world to start a business, the answer varies from person to person.  Right here in North America you ask?  Well, there are always oodles of opportunities but being able to raise sufficient funds or start up capital may be a problem given the present economic crunch.  On the other hand, there are some financial institutions that may just be willing to advance start up capital provided that a good business plan can be tabled.
 
In Europe you ask?  Financial conditions may or may not be conducive but which country would you choose?  Which language are you willing to work in, and which market would be the best for you to enter into?
 
In Asia you ask?  Well, here is another possibility and there are many advantages in one's favour.  Money conditions may be better, the business climate may also be better, and Asian governments may also be in a better frame of mind to help give a push to new businesses.  On this note, I am going to give you a really excellent article to read.  One that focuses on Asia and I invite you to read on.  Please see below.

The hidden costs of identity theft

The hidden costs of identity theft
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
Let us not fool ourselves when it comes to the cost of protecting ourselves from identity theft.  There are real costs, variable costs, fixed costs, and hidden costs.  At some point in time, all of these costs began to add up and can certainly mount rapidly the more protection we seek.
 
The hidden cost for identity theft is only going to grow with time and it all has to do with scammers and hackers becoming more savvy and cunning at what they do.  The more sophisticated they become, the more costly it is going to be for us.  However, there is not much for us to do but to depend on the good guys and the experts to help us maintain our security and keep our costs in check. 
 
Sadly enough, there is not much that we can do to change this picture except for us to be more mindful, security conscious, and to become more skilled at protecting ourselves.  I am going to leave you with an excellent article to check out below.  Please read on.

I am out of time for this week but before I leave you, here is my tiny tip of the week.
A growing home business idea is that of one becoming a travel agent from home.  With so many retirees and boomers interested in travel, and even professionals who are just too busy to make and book their trips, then why not?  Give it some thought.

Not sitting still for retirement

Not sitting still for retirement
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
Unlike their predecessors, this present group of retirees is not sitting still.  They are not sitting at home just enjoying their golden days nor are they going golfing or travelling around the world or relaxing on some sunny beach.  Instead, they are choosing to seek out either new careers or part-time jobs and it has a lot to do with necessity.
 
In some cases, some retirees are preferring to keep working because they either want to or they need to in order to bolster their savings.  In other cases, they seem to want to keep their minds active by continuing to work.  In yet other cases, they want to provide better financial support for them and their families.  No matter what the reasons, this is somewhat of a change from previous generations.  I have a great article for you to check out and I invite you now to see below.

FiveLinx Success Secrets 90 Percent Of Entrepreneurs Will Never ...

FiveLinx Success Secrets 90 Percent Of Entrepreneurs Will Never ...
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
The rate of success among entrepreneurs is not very high but before you turn tail on me and decide that entrepreneurship is not for you, there are a few things that you should know.  Things that if addressed appropriately, can quickly turn you into a raving entrepreneurial success.
 
First, you need to choose a venture that greatly interests you; one that would bring you great personal satisfaction and you would be surprised to see how things will quickly fall into place once you have done this.
True it is that becoming an entrepreneur is often influenced by other factors such as the need to earn more income, the desire to become one's own boss and grab control of one's destiny, and the need to generate a job after losing one.  However, if you are not happy with what you're doing, then you can never expect to be successful or happy.
 
Once you have established all of these facts in your mind, you then need to go forward by doing your research, designing and developing sound business plans, and seeking appropriate business advice.  I am going to leave you with a very good reference to follow up on.  I invite you now to see below.

Protecting Portable Devices Laptops and PDA's | Mortgage Align

Protecting Portable Devices Laptops and PDA's | Mortgage Align
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
There is still much for us to learn when it comes to the protection of our portable devices, laptops, and PDAs.  One should not be surprised to learn that all of these devices are prime targets for hackers and cyber pirates and that we need to be much more cautious and careful when we use them to communicate with the Internet and with others.
 
One needs to remember that hackers and cyber pirates are growing smarter and more savvy by the day and that they are not going to give up that easily.  As technology continues to evolve, so too for the worst are hackers and cyber pirates.  This picture is not going to change for the foreseeable future and it is up to us to take matters into our own hands and do what is necessary in order to protect both ourselves and our portable devices.
 
We need to be more alert, more watchful and more skilled at protecting our personal data and our devices and I am going to leave you with an excellent article below to check out.  I invite you now to read on.

Educated workers needed to support retirees

Educated workers needed to support retirees
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
As more and more persons start to retire, there is going to be a need for new workers to step up to the plate in order to not just fill the gap, but also to help support retirees. This process is going to be an ongoing one for a very long time and we may as well get used to this.
 
There needs to be special attention paid to the type of worker that will be needed in order to ensure that everything functions as it should.  Workers with appropriate skills and education would be a good starting point.  Workers who are skilled to man the important sectors of our economy.  Workers who are willing and ready to grind it out not just for themselves but for their parents as well and let us not forget the kids.  In essence:  Workers who like the present boomers are willing, able, and committed to play go between so to speak between their parents and their kids.
 
There is absolutely no reason why this cannot be done.  However, as this is the start of a new era, where succeeding generations are going to become sandwich generations just like the present set of baby boomers, we have to ensure that a great start to the process is carried out and accomplished.  I am going to live you with a great reference to check out.  Please read below.

techwalker: Login Security Tips

techwalker: Login Security Tips
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
So many websites these days have established a login security protocol for users and it often entails not just a username and password, but also such things as a secret question, mother's maiden name, and so on.  Hackers are wising up to this protocol and have started to make frightening inroads in to the security systems of some websites.  Now, this has to be examined and websites now have to come up with other ways to thwart scammers and hackers. 
 
It may not be a bad idea for users to become involved in taking control of their own login protocol; such as defining their own secret question instead of websites setting it for them, and other parms in addition to mother's maiden name.  Whatever changes being promoted, it is serious enough for us to be aware of what is going on and for our own sake to become more active in coming up with more safe proof suggestions.
 
I have a great article for you to read.  One that clearly brings home the message.  I invite you now to read on.  Please see below.

Timely support from family and friends makes that world of difference in children who go through anxiety or depression; often, all it takes is this invaluable and unconditional support to help troubled minds come out of a trying phase. The good news is that it's never too late to start giving your child all of the above; the bad news is that this realisation often comes when it's much too late.

I am out of time for this week but before I leave you, here is my tiny tip of the week.
When you watch those glitzy infomercials, pay particular attention to what you want to buy.  Price, what they say you are going to get, time for delivery, and anything and everything about it all.  Sometimes, you don't always get what you pay for and you need to ensure that there is a money backed guarantee for your product.  Also, terms for return of the product purchased.  Do some investigating and make sure that the seller of the product is legitimate.
 
I'm Donna J. Jodhan wishing you a terrific day and week ahead.

In-home care for elderly is growing

In-home care for elderly is growing
By Donna J. Jodhan
 
I don't think that anyone should be surprised to learn that in-home care for the elderly is growing and one of the major factors driving this circumstance is pure and simple.  Affordability; and it's all mainly due to what has been going on in our economy.  More and more seniors are finding it difficult to afford the care and luxuries of retirement homes and they are turning more and more to in-home care services.
 
This means that the demand for in-home care workers is growing and in addition, careers in the in-home care field are opening up to offer satisfying opportunities for those who are so inclined.  What this means is that schools and colleges need to start developing courses and training programs that will help present and future in-home care workers to become more efficient and in tune to the needs of the elderly.  I am going to leave hyou with an excellent reference to check out.  I invite you to read on.
