The Benefits of Using the Cloud

Moving to the cloud for any business is certainly bound to come with an array of merits. Cloud computing is after all becoming a mainstay of technology. Large companies have been able to achieve their goals by going in this direction.

It is all about offloading and leaving the work to experts for a seamless flow of work and activity in your business. It is very clear that there are many benefits of using the cloud. This article gives you a detailed look into the top merits that you can look forward to.

Tap into the Economies of Scale

The cloud allows you to have more productivity even if you are working with few people. This is because the output is greatly increased. Additionally, it is a sure way to reduce wastage of resources because you only buy the service when you need it. This is unlike what companies used to do in the past, when they invested in expensive software and hardware even when they were not necessary. In the cloud, your cost per unit is bound to come down, making you enjoy the awesome economies of scale.

Remove the Need for Maintenance

Because you do not have to deal with any software or specialized hardware to accomplish your goals, there is no maintenance needed. This will further save your costs, enabling your business to make more money. However, for those who maintain hosted servers, maintenance cost will still be in the picture. The ideal situation is where the cloud service provider uses their own servers, eliminating this maintenance cost.

Easy Access and a Global Outlook

As long as your workers have access to the internet, they can log into the cloud from anywhere in the world. This has made this technology versatile and has provided a new outlook that is international. In this regard, a business can further grow globally by ensuring that all workers are well connected to the cloud and that a lot of work is done. This global outlook for work infrastructure is valuable to say the least.

Enhanced Project Monitoring

Since you have access to all the projects going on in your business in the cloud, you can monitor work more effectively. This way, you will ensure that work cycles are effective and followed through. No matter where you are, you will be kept on top of your game, making business management and monitoring a very easy task. This has been seen to dramatically improve productivity.

Reduction of Staff Training Costs

Since the cloud systems are straightforward and easy to grasp, the need to train personnel is reduced greatly. With a reduced workforce, you will work with competent people and ensure productivity is kept high. The staff does not have to learn about software and hardware infrastructure, saving a lot of time as well.

Data Is Backed Up

In the cloud, data is always backed up and there is no fear of any loss. Therefore, people can conduct their business with the knowledge that there is complete safety. Conventional systems do not guarantee backup unless expensive data recovery measures are enforced. With cloud services, you can put all your fears to rest.

It is obvious that the list of benefits can go on and on. Most companies have realized the merits and they are using some form of cloud in their operations.

Easy Productivity Secrets: Why Most People Struggle to Stay Productive

Easy Productivity Secrets…


There are two big reasons why people struggle to stay productive:

distractions and lack of motivation.


This is certainly easier said than done, especially if you’re a work-at-home

parent. After all, the point of working at home is to be available for your

family when they need you, right?


Sit down and write out an honest list of things that distract you while you

work. For most of us, this list could include things such as: email, social

media, texts, phone calls, instant messages, and the kids.


Keeping this list somewhere in your work area will help you recognize the

distractions before they become a problem. For example, close your email

box and only check it at predetermined times during the day. Sign out of

all instant messengers. Turn the phone on silent. Make sure the children

are occupied for a little while. Taking these steps means you are

consciously making the effort to remove the distractions and focus.


When your friends and family members learn to respect your work time,

this makes things a lot easier for you. Talk to your spouse and children (if

they’re old enough to understand) about the time you’ve dedicated to

work your hours. It is best if the people in your life can treat your work-at-

home job as if you did not set your own hours. They need to see it as a

traditional job with set hours, during which they leave you alone. They

wouldn’t call you at the office 15 times in three hours if they knew your

boss was around, would they? Give the people in your home some sort of

signal when you’re working, so they know to leave you alone unless it is

an emergency. For instance, if you have office, keep the door closed when

you’re working. The closed door is the sign your family needs to leave you



Being productive is a skill. Any skill you obtain will require practice and

repetition to fine tune and perfect. Even the most productive people will

become distracted from time to time. If you find yourself becoming

distracted, take a few minutes to center yourself and refocus yourself on

your commitment to your client, and your business. Then, get back to

work. Eventually, it will become easier for you to re-center and focus each

time you get distracted, which in turn makes it easier to stay focused.

Is Coastal Vacations the right business for You?

Well, that depends…

There are literally THOUSANDS of home businesses out there to choose from.

I use that word “businesses” loosely, because there’s a lot of junk on and off the internet.

Cash gifting, HYIPs, autosurfs, and other pie-in-the-sky schemes are often called businesses when there’s no real product or service being exchanged.

At least with mlm/network marketing you normally have a product or service, but very few people are making any money because they cannot create the organization it takes to generate the massive sales volume needed to throw off substantial income.

With so many choices out there…good, bad ,and ugly; why choose Coastal Vacations?

What makes it stand apart from all the others?

Well, first of all, let’s look at some facts:

According to a recent home business poll, here are the TOP 10 criteria people are looking for:

Substantial immediate income
Low initial capital
Extreme Product value
No need to keep product on hand
Easy to use system
Company stability
Worldwide appeal
Exponential growth
Long term income

Now, that’s a pretty tall bill for any one business to fill.

Most businesses meet at least 2 or 3 of these criteria, but very few can meet more than that. Many people have tried program after program, trying to find the perfect one, and finally decide to give up. They lose hope that the “REAL THING” truly exists.

Well, what if I told you that Coastal Vacations meets *ALL* of the above criteria, and even more?

We have merged two of the hottest industries today – Travel and the Internet. The result is a business that blows the competition away.

Let’s take a closer look at that list again as it applies to Coastal…

Substantial immediate income – $1,000 – $9,705 for every new client referral

Low initial capital – Start your very own REAL business for less than $1500 capital up front.

Extreme Product value – The Coastal level I Package is worth over $15,000, and yet we retail it for just $1,295.

No need to keep product on hand – You mail the order to the shipping center, and they drop ship the product directly to your clients.

Easy to use system – Full training provided by your own personal mentor who has had established success in the business and can show you the ropes. If you can give out a website address and a phone number, you can do this!

Company stability – The Coastal package is over 25 years old, and has been marketed this way for over 20 years. All the companies we represent are at least 15 years old, and are all licensed and bonded, as well as listed with the BBB.

Duplicatable – The company offers tools for your success and also for the success of anyone you teach. Marketing systems are already in place, one simply has to plug-in and get started!

Worldwide appeal – The Coastal opportunity is available worldwide. The package can be used by anyone, anywhere.

Exponential growth – Although Coastal is NOT mlm or network marketing, there is exponential growth built in.

Long term income – Once you are a Coastal Director, you are a Director for life! There are no yearly agent fees, no minimum sales requirements, no inactivity penalties…. this business is yours forever.

But we don’t stop there….. there’s more…..

No waiting on checks – You are paid directly by the customer, so you get paid FIRST. You then send the wholesale cost into the shipping center, and the package is drop shipped to your client. Because the company doesn’t pay you anything, they don’t keep track of what you do. There are no 1099s at the end of the year. It is up to you to keep track and report what you make.

No restrictions on marketing – Most companies make you get your ads approved and have to “OK” your ideas before you can use them. Not Coastal. This is YOUR business. You are completely independent. If you can dream it up, you can do it.

Everyone loves to travel!!! – Travel is the one thing that has universal appeal. Families, businesses, non-profit organizations, retired couples… everybody…. loves this package. Even the biggest skeptic will perk up his ears when you start talking about the benefits of wholesale vacations with the Coastal package.

Dozens of effective marketing methods – Our Directors use many different methods…. some use the Internet exclusively, some just over the telephone, others solely in person. You can use postcards, seminars, trade shows, newspapers, magazines, the Internet, business-to-business… the possibilities are endless! And, as part of your personal training, you will be taught about each of these methods and how to use them.

What an incredible opportunity!  I’ve been developing businesses for over 20 years and I’ve never seen a business that offers such reward for so little risk.  As Coastal Directors, we earn between 77% and 88% commission from every sale we personally make.

Coastal Vacations is lucrative enough even within the first few months to support an entire household by itself.

How many people can say that? That their business they run from their home pays all their bills all by itself?  Very few.

I encourage you to take the 3-step tour at our website and view the recorded webinar found there.

After that, you may have some questions, but you should have a pretty good idea if this is right for you. Please feel free to call me at my home office, 270-339-3672 with your questions.

To your Success,

Curtis Staggs

I am NOT an Avon representative, but I know a good one

Everyone has heard about Avon.  They’ve been around since 1886 and have maintained a good reputation for quality products primarily for women.

And as the title of the release says, I am NOT an Avon representative; but, my wife is, and as a good husband and friend, I must take a few moments to help promote her endeavor.

Since I’m a student of history and I love a good story I’ll share a little history about Avon that I learned recently.  

According to the company website, the founder, “David H. McConnell didn’t originally intend to create a beauty company. A traveling book salesman, he founded Avon in 1886 after realizing his female customers were far more interested in the free perfume samples he offered than in his books. During his book selling days, McConnell had also noticed that many of his female customers were isolated at home while their husbands went off to work. So he purposely recruited female sales Representatives. McConnell believed they had a natural ability to network with and market to other women, and a passion for his products. At a time of limited employment options for women, the Avon earnings opportunity was a revolutionary concept. It marked the start of the company’s long and rich history of empowering women around the globe.”


Now, a little history about my wife (my empowered woman) and I.  We’ve lived in Madisonville Kentucky for almost thirty years.  She has supported my business endeavors over the years and there have been many.  I started my first brick and mortar retail store at age 19 and she was there.  She has seen my boom and bust.  She has witnessed the good, the bad, and the ugly.  And recently, she has started her own home based business.  I am very happy for her.  

So, if you enjoy Avon products or know someone who does you can buy Avon online.  FREE standard shipping with $35 order or more.

Avon is the world leader in anti-aging skin care products, fragrance and color cosmetics. Its product line includes beauty products, fashion jewelry and apparel and features such well-recognized brand names as Avon Color, Anew, Skin So Soft, Avon Solutions, Advance Techniques Hair Care, Avon naturals, mark and Avon Wellness.

5 Ways A Home Business Can Make Your Life Easier

Home businesses come in many different shapes, sizes and forms. These types of businesses provide individuals with an alternative to the office job setting and provide various freedoms to the business owners as well. In fact, there are five often-cited ways in which a home business can make one’s life easier overall.

Child Care Issues

Perhaps one of the most often cited features of a home business which can make one’s life easier is that by owning a home business, individuals are able to work while staying at home with their children. This makes the need for daily child care a nonexistent factor. Although some individuals who work from home still opt for putting their kids in daycare, having a home business does make doing without child care a possibility.

Transportation Issues

Another way which home businesses can make a business owner’s life that much easier relates to transportation issues. When owning a home business, one can conduct their daily business affairs from the convenience of their home office. This gets rid of the need for commuting to an office each day and putting mileage on the car, not to mention paying costly gas bills. It is also a time saver with regard to not having to commute to and from work which is also a highly regarded trait of owning a home business.

Tax Deductions

One who has a home business is also able to reap the benefits of multiple tax deductions and incentives which may be available to them. Using a home office enables a business owner to save money in the long run by seeing deductions on their annual tax returns. Although this only happens once a year, the rewards are often quite good for home business owners who operate their business out of their home office.

Being Your Own Boss

An additional incentive for home business owners is that they are their own boss. This is a wonderful thing to consider. No more bossy employers enforcing strict, unyielding schedules. Being your own boss is a sure way to make one’s life easier. One can work when they want to, take a break if they like and pursue their occupation in the manner which they see fit.

Reduce Overhead This Way

Lastly, an individual who runs a business out of their home will often find that their life is made easier by saving themselves money in the end. As opposed to those individuals who own businesses which are run out of separate offices, home business owners will see large reductions in overhead. Making use of the home as a workspace is a great way to make life easier on the individual and their wallet.

Coastal Vacations is an association of entrepreneurs, professionals and home-based business owners dedicated to providing the highest quality vacation values and travel benefits on the market today, and making them available to their clients at rock-bottom prices. This has in turn created one of the hottest and most lucrative business opportunities in the World.  I have been a member of Coastal Vacations since 2004.  This business has saved me money, allowed my family to take more and better vacations, and continues to create cash flow from the comfort of my home.  For more details about Coastal Vacations, click here

Tips For Making Your Website Look Professional

Many people believe that designing a website is difficult, but that in only true if you do not take the time to learn how to build one. Like pretty much everything done on the web today, there are many software programs available which can make web design really simple.

Continue on for some great tips on how to choose the best web design program to build your site.

Before you publish any web page, check it carefully for broken links. Nothing is more frustrating to a visitor than clicking on a link and being taken to an error page. You can check your links manually, or there are programs that will scan your site for you and report any broken links.

Allow users to cancel an action if they so choose. This could mean ordering products, opting in to an email newsletter, or returning to the homepage from deep within your site. If visitors cannot cancel an action they are not interested in, such as providing their contact information, they will feel they do not have a choice and won’t buy anything.

Give your visitors the ability to search your site so that they can more easily find what they are looking for. If someone cannot find what they are looking for right away, their next thought will be to look for a search field. Put this somewhere obvious and include a search button.

Always ensure you are giving meaningful feedback, as this is what creates the communication between a website and its visitors. For example, if an action taken by a visitor results in an error, do not simply display “error occurred.”  Instead, provide a message that explains what happened and how the visitor can correct the error by taking a different action. Without this feedback, visitors are more likely to grow frustrated and just give up by leaving your website.

Have a site map. These are useful to your clients and the search engines, as they give a detailed overview of your entire website. It can be a guide for viewers searching for a certain part of your site, and also allow you to keep track of its structure and layout.

Use a tracking service, rather than displaying your visitor counter for all to read. Many websites still display their counters, yet they do not serve any real purpose. There are many high quality tracking services available, and some are even free. Use these instead of showing off how many people visit you.

When designing your website, you should avoid using too many different types of fonts. You must also consider how different fonts appear on the standard computer screen; smaller serif fonts (Times New Roman, for example) are somewhat hard to read. Most sites use Vedrana, which is easily read in different colors and sizes.

Do not use images for your background. When you think about some of the biggest websites on the Internet, they do not have images as backgrounds. When you use image backgrounds, you represent yourself as someone who is not well-versed in web designing. Images as backgrounds also cause your site to load slower, which can lead to user frustration.

Make text easy to ready by using colors that contrast or backgrounds that are easy to read text on. When your text is harder to read because the background or text color creates eye strain or portions of text that are unreadable, site visitors are less likely to stick around.

As stated in the above article, web design today is made simple with the many easy to use software programs that are on the market. If you can follow some simple instructions then you too can enter the world of web design.

Apply the tips from this article so you can understand what to look for in a web design program.

How to Start a Business

Starting A Small Business At Home

Learning how to start a business is an exciting adventure. You can make a great deal of money and be completely self-sufficient with a small home business. The key factor is to be organized and plan for the start-up prior to depending on the business completely. You need to give the business time to grow and flourish before you run it solely for your income needs. Let’s review some of the basics for starting a small home business.

Select a business that you know about or can do a little research and learn. You will spend many hours in your home business and should find one that you can be passionate about. The majority of people spend forty hours a week away from home at their jobs. If you don’t count the amount of time that you sleep, the average person spends roughly twenty hours a week in their homes.  This is half the time that they are at work. A small home business will take around fifty hours a week once it is up and running. If you are not passionate about the type of business, this can be a recipe for complete disaster. After all one of the benefits of a small home business is getting to work in an area that you enjoy and love a great deal.

Be realistic about your expectations for the small home business. For example, if you want to make and sell candles be realistic as to how many you can produce and market each week.  Don’t plan to make a profit on 500 candles being sold each day if you’re not going to realistically be able to make that many in your home business. Many people dream too far outside of the box and aren’t in touch with reality when it comes to starting a small home business. You should sit down and realistically think about the business and what type of work is involved. Have realistic expectations of what you can and cannot reasonably do working part time to start and then full time later down the road.

Review how a small home business is run. Regardless of service or product, businesses are basically run in the same manner. Many business methods apply to a variety of small home based types of businesses. There are traditional methods for keeping various records. You will need to know the basic tax laws for your area and the business license requirements.  Additionally, you will want to accurate business records. There are many different types of software that can help you with the organization and running of your new small home business.  Reviewing the basics of how to run a small home business will enable you to stay organized, focused and set on your goals.

Find out if there is a market for your product or service. What type of competition is in the area?  What can you offer different than your competitors. Many new small home business groups fail because they have not anticipated the competition in the area or the need for their product or service. For example, if you want to start a dog walking home business but the surrounding condo and apartment complexes do not allow pets there might not be a very high demand for your service.

The information found at how to start a business may help you find the business you’re looking for or at least help you eliminate some options.
