Finding success and a flexible work opportunity

Sally Anderson’s rise to the top as a Kaeser & Blair business owner

Sally Anderson has been a business owner with Kaeser & Blair since 2009.  She pursued the opportunity after spending her first post-college years in sales – a career that demanded her to travel, work long hours and be in the office when life’s priorities demanded a more flexible work opportunity.

She vividly remembers the countless 10-hour days devoted to furthering her pre-Kaeser career, the time required away from her family and missing out on years of family time that she would never be able to get back.

After the birth of her second child, Sally left corporate life behind, and decided to make being a stay-at-home mom her full-time career.  No longer would she miss out on the “baby years” she feared would be forever erased by the demands of her work. 

But she still sensed that something was missing. 

While she got to spend more time with her family as a stay-at-home mom, she craved the excitement and the sense of accomplishment that came from completing sales deals and being rewarded for those sales. 

“I do like making money,” Sally says, “and I like feeling a sense of accomplishment from work.”

So she decided to give Kaeser & Blair a try, beginning as a part-time business owner. The nature of the flexible work as a promotional products business owner and ability to be in full control allowed her to be able to work, while maintaining an active presence in the lives of her children. After about three years, she committed full time. 

It took Sally only two years after becoming a full-time business owner to make Century Club, membership in which is designated for those whose annual sales exceed $100,000.  But the financial rewards and accolades pale in comparison to the time Sally has been able to have with her children and family as a result of the flexible work schedule. 

Aside from the ability to spend more time with her children, the flexible work afforded by Kaeser & Blair also allowed Sally to spend precious time with her father while he was in a hospital 2.5 hours away. She was able to work wherever there was Wi-Fi, allowing her to be at the hospital – and with her father – as needed.  A “typical” 9-to-5 would not have allowed them to share this time together. 

In the nine years since she started selling promotional products, Sally has risen to no. 7 in sales, out of all Kaeser & Blair promotional products business owners nationwide.  And she was able to do all of this while seamlessly balancing her home and work life. 

“I never thought I could make this much money and set my own schedule,” Sally says. “It’s just been amazing.” 

Are you interested in finding flexible work, and a better work-life balance? We encourage you to give Kaeser & Blair a try! With profits and reputation beyond compare, you’ll find there really is no better opportunity.

With the rapid expansion of the Internet comes convenient access to a variety of sales tools to help boost the success of your direct sales business.  Here are 4 great free ways to start leveraging the vast landscape of resources available to you online. 

Blog

Many direct sales business owners overlook the potential of a blog, but in today’s world, it’s not only an asset, it’s expected.  Using a blog, you can tell the unique story about your business – what you do, what clients you serve, etc.  You also have the ability to showcase success stories, products and highlight clientele.  It can be a great, fun way to manage your diverse direct sales business portfolio single place.  

Social Media

One of the best ways to share news about your direct sales business is by engaging clientele – both potential and existing – via social media. Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are some of the most common platforms, leveraged regularly by billions of people worldwide.  This vast and growing social world means that in owning your own direct sales business and appropriately leveraging social media, you have access to a huge pool of potential clients and current industry professionals.  

Search

A powerful tool to leverage when developing your direct sales business is a search engine such as Google or Bing.  Using these tools, you can search for and find new businesses, prospective clients, as well as the leaders of these businesses with whom you should get in contact.  Use the results of your search to compile a database/spreadsheet with prospects, segmented by industry, with their contact information and other detailed notes.  This can help you not only build the client database of your direct sales business and connect with prospects, but also to maintain lasting relationships that could lead to increased sales down the road.

Email

Email is often one of the most overlooked sales tools, especially with those involved with a direct sales business.  It is important to keep an organized contact list including prospective clients, existing clients and past clients and each one’s email address.  This makes it easy to send out mass emails showcasing new products, or even to send industry or company-specific emails when you think of a perfect product solution to suggest to them.  In doing this, you can target your messages accordingly, and more efficiently maintain open lines of communication with your client base.

Interested in starting your own direct sales business?  We've got you covered! Through the Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program, you can start your own independent business in the growing promotional products industry.  Request your Free Trial Launch Kit today.

4 Things to Look for in a Low Cost Business Opportunity

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-07-05 in News

Finding a low cost business opportunity seems simple. Just find a business with a model that requires little investment, and go for it, right?  Wrong.  There is more to take into consideration to determine the ones that could be positive experiences from the less fruitful. So beyond just initial expense, what should you look for in a low cost business opportunity?  Here are 4 key characteristics.

1. Predictability

It is important to consider the predictability of the business.  Many low cost business opportunities are “low cost” because they are in environments or situations that are frequently volatile, and subject to change at a moment’s notice.  This often means that the business owner fails to see a long-term return on investment.  By considering the level of predictability of the opportunity, you can alleviate a lot of stress that you would otherwise encounter down the line.

2. Stability

If the low-cost business opportunity is through a company, or one that requires you to partner with a company, you must consider the stability of the company. Look for companies that have been established in their respective industries for a substantial amount of time.  Another good way to be sure of their stability is to verify that they are accredited with the Better Business Bureau. This will help provide peace of mind, as well as ensure that you are partnering with a fair and respectable company.  

3. Product Demand

If the opportunity requires selling products, it is important to consider the demand for those products, as well as the competitive landscape.  Some products have initial value, but are fads that will soon pass, making the long-term industry outlook grim. What you want to look for is an industry that constantly adapts to new trends, and that offers products whose demand will continue into the future. This will help ensure that the low cost business opportunity is a sustainable one that can deliver results even in the future.

4. Control

Control is a major selling point to a good low cost business opportunity.  Even if the initial upfront investment is nothing substantial, it is great to know that you have control over where you take your business and your overall success. Look for opportunities that allow you to create your own schedule, work at your own pace and take ownership of your earnings.  This will not only give you more job satisfaction, but will also help to ensure that the opportunity is one worth pursuing.

If all of these sound great, we encourage you to consider Kaeser & Blair.  The Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program is a great low cost business opportunity because it offers all of the characteristics outlined.  As a business owner with K&B, you get the predictability that comes with being your own boss, the stability that comes with partnering with a rock-solid company, the demand that stems from the promotional products industry and the control that comes from being your own boss. Get started today!

Are you ready to start a home business?

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-06-14 in News

Some of the most recognizable corporate names in existence today began as home businesses. So it’s no surprise that so many people are embracing the entrepreneurial spirit and trying to start a home business.  What about you?  Have you ever considered going that route?  If so, here are five things to consider to help you determine if you are ready to take the next step and start a home business.

Space

Most people assume that to start a home business, an entirely separate office space is needed. That is far from the truth.  All that is really needed is comfortable space to use your computer, or space spread a notebook out.  A little table space (even a vacant kitchen table) can go a long way.  So if you have this space available from which you could comfortably work at your own convenience, then you are in a great position to start a home business.

Environment

Do you thrive in a flexible environment?  Does the ability to be in control of your future inspire you to work harder?  If so, then you would probably find it beneficial to start a home business.  When you start a home business, you are your own boss and you determine when you work and when you relax.  This allows you to determine your “peak” hours, and work within the confines of those. 

Personality

Those who are most successful with home businesses are those who are able to work independently, without a boss telling them how to spend their time throughout the day.  If you’re a naturally internally-motivated person, then the opportunity to start a home business should seem like a logical next step.

Money

If the single most motivating factor for you is the desire to make extra money, then you are more than ready to start a home business.  When you start a home business, you are generally in control of your earnings.  You can earn as much or as little as you want, depending on how much you work.  So for those looking to make extra money on their own terms, this is an ideal setup. 

So, what’s the verdict?  Are you ready to start a home business?  If so, consider the Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program.  Kaeser & Blair is a family owned and operated business with more than a century of history helping ordinary individuals become successful entrepreneurs.  Start a home business with Kaeser & Blair today.

5 Tips to Help You Make the Most of Small Business Opportunities

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-06-07 in News

We live in a nation of entrepreneurs, so it’s no surprise that scores of ordinary people are pursuing small business opportunities.  But when it comes to most, it’s often a case of easy to pursue, but hard to follow through.  Don’t let that be you. Here are 5 helpful tips to help you make the most of small business opportunities with increasing success.

Tip #1: Set financial goals.

Setting solid financial goals is essential to be successful with virtually any of the small business opportunities out there. You need to have a clear vision in mind, whether it be to finance a vacation, pay off debt or even just to add a certain amount of money to household revenue stream.  Keep a dollar amount in mind, and work toward it daily.  Success with small business opportunities often revolves around these bottom-line oriented goals.

Tip #2: Delegate time appropriately.

To succeed with small business opportunities, especially those in which you don’t have set hours or a superior to answer to, it is vital that you practice good time management and delegate your time accordingly.  It’s easy to procrastinate when relying on internal motivators to drive you to get to work.  To combat this, you can schedule certain times to complete certain tasks.  For instance, allow 30 minutes for email maintenance, followed by an hour for phone calls, etc.  This will help you maximize your time and keep you on track, which will ultimately enhance your ability to be successful.

Tip #3: Keep your workspace in order.

Nothing kills productivity more than a cluttered workspace, and this is especially true when pursuing small business opportunities.  Many of these opportunities require a tremendous amount of discipline (see tip #2), and an environment overrun with papers and other distracting elements can prove counterproductive. So keep your space organized.  With a clear work space comes a clear mind and better focus.

Tip #4: Get out.

Many people who pursue small business opportunities, especially when working from home, make the easy mistake of equating work with life, and vice versa.  While this can prove fruitful in the short-term, it can hinder your success, happiness and emotional state in the long-term. Make getting out a daily priority.  Take a walk, get some fresh air, go to the grocery store – anything to physically remove yourself from the environment for even a brief period of time. Remember, it’s essential to disconnect from work every now and again. 

Tip #5 Consider Kaeser & Blair.

If you’re on the hunt for small business opportunities that allow you to fully embrace your entrepreneurial spirit, consider Kaeser & Blair.  Through the Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program, independent business owners are afforded freedom, flexibility and the ability to sell creative, inspired products in a thriving industry, with a company that has an unsurpassed reputation. Take the first step down the path of success today!

As a mother of four and successful Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products business owner, The Kaeser & Blair business opportunity allowed Suzanne the freedom to move with her family, while maintaining her clients and successful career.

Suzanne has always put family first, having been a stay-at-home mom since having her first child.  That innate desire to remain close with her family inspired her to pursue the promotional products careers at Kaeser & Blair.

She spent nine years in that position, often hearing the Kaeser & Blair name while dipping her toes in the promotional products field. 

After Welcome Wagon dissolved promotional products, she tried her hand with other direct sales opportunities.  Suzanne vividly remembers being “burned” by other companies, so she was initially a bit skeptical of pursuing the work from home jobs with Kaeser & Blair.

“I wasn’t sure what they had to offer,” she says about the Kaeser & Blair opportunity.

But now, Suzanne  is reaping the rewards. Due to the flexibility afforded by the opportunity, she was able to keep her client list and career during her family’s move from Pennsylvania to North Carolina.  To this day, she maintains some of her first clients in Pennsylvania, while living permanently in North Carolina.

Why Do People Choose Promotional Products Careers, Anyway?

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-05-24 in News

It’s no secret that people are regularly making careers of direct sales opportunities.  From selling candles and cleaning products to purses and promotional products, the possibilities within this realm are near endless.  So, out of all of those opportunities, why are promotional products careers an optimal choice, and what can those who choose to get involved expect from them? Well, we’re here to answer those questions for you.

Promotional products careers are an excellent direct selling option (and career option in general) due largely in part to the nature of the products being sold. Companies of every size and industry use promotional products as marketing tools to spread the word about their businesses. This is quite simply because promotional products are effective, and people recognize that.  What they often don’t realize is that they have creative people who have started promotional products careers simply to help them make sound decisions and ultimately select the appropriate promotional products to help meet their unique business needs.

This gives promotional products business owners access to a vastly untouched client pool, as well as the ability to demonstrate creative problem-solving skills with fun products—products that can be customized to a client’s taste to achieve optimal results.  Colors, logo placement and text can almost always be manipulated to achieve desired aesthetics.  As a huge part of the process and a collaborator, you get a sort of control and power to inform your client and help them make the best decision.  While other direct sales opportunities allow you to take a consultative approach, few allow you the creative freedoms of promotional products careers.

Not only do promotional products careers offer those who choose to get involved creative liberty, but they also offer income potential to match the constant demand, and the ability to essentially determine how much is earned.  Business owners get percentage of each completed sale, so with an increase in sales comes an increase in earnings. The more work you put in, the more clients you will land and the more sales you will secure. It’s that simple. 

Promotional products careers also offer those who choose to start one the ability to work according to a schedule they choose.  This means that priorities that extend beyond work can be easily worked around.  You can work at night, for a couple of hours at a time, or even in the early morning hours—whatever is best for you.  And unlike other direct selling opportunities, selling promotional products doesn’t require party hosting, so the infringement on your personal life is minimal.  Business owners are truly granted a sense of freedom and flexibility.   

Various factors drive people to start promotional products careers.  Sometimes it’s the freedom; sometimes it's the income potential; and at other times even it’s the industry and the creative outlet it provides.  Regardless, these are all what people can come to expect when they embark on the exciting journey. 

For those considering starting promotional products careers, consider Kaeser & Blair.  Why Kaeser & Blair?  It’s simple.  Along with the ordinary characteristics of promotional products careers, K&B business owners get the additional benefits of partnering with an A+ Better Business Bureau company that offers profits and reputation beyond compare!

And it doesn’t stop there.

K&B business owners quickly realize that selling promotional products is one of the best extra income ideas, and is a genuinely fun career path to venture down.  When people are excited about what they do, they can’t help but be giddy when they talk about it to family or friends.  Oftentimes, those that hear what a great opportunity it is and see business owners legitimately excited about their careers, are curious and want to learn more about how to get involved.  When this happens, the business owner can “refer” the individual and get rewarded for that referral.

What to Look For: Defining Characteristics of Legitimate Home Based Opportunities to Make Extra Money

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-05-03 in News

Many home based opportunities sell “the dream.”  They appear to offer everything – the ability to work from home (with a freedom and flexibility afforded by few other opportunities) and the ability to finally feel like you’re in control.  Appearances can be completely different from reality, and the majority of people are acutely aware of this fact.  Many even have difficulty distinguishing legitimate home based opportunities from those that just don’t deliver, and often don’t take advantage of the opportunities because they’re too skeptical to commit. It doesn’t have to be this way, and we’ll tell you why. 

While the characteristics of these opportunities vary greatly, there are some universal defining characteristics of legitimate home based opportunities—characteristics that Kaeser & Blair constantly delivers.

The first characteristic to look for in all legitimate home based opportunities is freedom.  This means freedom from contracts, freedom from commitments and freedom from a boss telling you exactly what to do with each hour you choose to work.  Essentially, you should be able to determine how your time is spent, and be able to get out if and when you choose.

With Kaeser & Blair, you can rest assured that you are choosing to partake in one of the best legitimate home based opportunities around today.  To begin with, you are given the ultimate freedom.  Once you purchase the business owner package, you basically run your business as you choose.  This means that you choose with whom you work, when you work and from where you work. 

The second characteristic to look for in all legitimate home based opportunities is the ability to be in full control of your income. Basic logic implies that if you set your own schedule and determine how much you work each day, you should also be indirectly in control of how much you earn.  In this case, basic logic is absolutely correct.  Legitimate home based opportunities should reward those who choose to partake based on their hard work. 

With Kaeser & Blair, you determine how much you work and with whom you work, meaning the more clients you secure and the more you sell, the more you earn. This setup allows business owners to work part-time or full-time, and make money according to sales volume.  Part-time business owners have the ability to earn up to  $20,000 annually, and full-time business owners as much as $185,000—all depending on how much they work and ultimately how much they sell.  The legitimate home based opportunities with Kaeser & Blair put you in full control, as they should.  

Another key characteristic to help you determine if the job is one of the few legitimate home based opportunities is the company’s history and reputation.  How long have they been around?  Do they have an established reputation in their industry, or has no one ever heard of them when you mention their name?  If name recognition is minimal or if they’re fairly new to the industry, then the company is probably far from what should be considered among legitimate home based opportunities.

Kaeser & Blair is a promotional products leader, with the largest group of independent businesses in the industry.  They are a company that has been in continuous operation for over 120 years, which is something that few companies (if any) can boast about.

So if you find yourself looking for legitimate home-based opportunities, look no further than Kaeser & Blair.  They offer legitimate freedom and flexibility, legitimate control and a legitimate industry history and reputation—characteristics that few can truly deliver.

Overcoming Common Arguments Faced when Selling Promotional Products

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-04-12 in News

Selling promotional products can be an incredibly lucrative way to earn money today.  The industry is thriving, and is constantly in need of creative and motivated individuals to sell these products to companies that could benefit from them. Though the demand for these products and skilled people to sell them is omnipresent, there are some obstacles and arguments that a promotional products business owner is bound to encounter along the way. 

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just getting started in the business, here are a few common arguments you will face from prospective clients when selling promotional products, and ways to overcome them. 

Argument 1: “Nobody uses promotional products anymore.”

When selling promotional products, clients often argue about the effectiveness of promotional products as marketing tools due to the rise of social media and digital platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.  Why buy promotional products when you can advertise and grow your brand in other ways?

One way to respond to such questions when selling promotional products is to emphasize that these products are still a very valid form of marketing, generating referrals and new clients regularly.  Contrary to what people believe, they do and will always have their unique place within a company’s marketing campaign.  When you face these arguments while selling promotional products, leverage useful items to pique your client’s interest—items that people seek on a daily basis, such as cell phone chargers.

Argument 2: “I’m not getting the best deal by going through a middleman.”

Many clients will leverage the emergence of e-commerce sites such as Amazon in support of this argument.  Oftentimes, they assume that because they deal with a person selling promotional products instead of dealing directly with the vendor, that they are not getting the best deal. 

The best way to counteract this argument is to highlight the benefits they get, especially when going through a business owner selling promotional products with Kaeser & Blair.  Kaeser & Blair business owners have access to graphics support, competitive pricing and are part of a reputable company within the industry, making it overall a better deal for the client than trying to go it alone.  

Argument 3: “The promotional product ROI just doesn't justify the cost.”

Many studies have been conducted about the overall effectiveness of promotional products in achieving business goals.  These studies consistently reveal that using promotional products as an integral part of a marketing campaign can be a great way to get new clients and increase professional referrals.

When selling promotional products, it is important to bring to a potential client’s attention some real-world examples.  If you can help them think back to a time when their purchasing decision was directly influenced by a promotional product of any kind, then you will prove your point.

Argument 4: “The product options are limited.”

Though many associate the term “promotional products” with t-shirts, pens or mugs, that is only the beginning of what different kind of promotional products are offered. When you get involved selling promotional products, you quickly realize just how diverse the product selection and offerings are.  Today, items such as Bluetooth speakers, flash drives and cell phone chargers are among the array of products available. There is an item for every industry and every unique business need.  It’s all a matter of being able to successfully demonstrate this to clients and knowing what products to leverage and when. 

As a promotional products business owner, you are bound to encounter these or similar arguments and obstacles.  The key is to be prepared for the most common, as outlined above.  If you can respond swiftly and provide examples of how promotional products can help them achieve their unique business goals, you will undoubtedly be successful.

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-04-05 in News

Consider Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products—one of the top direct sales companies!

Many direct sales companies claim to be the best.  They offer the “best” incentives, “best” profits or the “best” products.  Though these companies may come close to delivering on these claims, few rival Kaeser & Blair.  So why do many regard Kaeser & Blair as one of the top direct sales companies in operation?  Business owner independence and industry-leading profits are among the characteristics that make the Kaeser & Blair opportunity one of the best around today. 

Through the Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program, ordinary individuals become independent business owners.  K&B equips each person with the tools and know-how to run independent businesses and succeed in the dynamic world of promotional product sales. This includes providing access to Kaeser University, where both new and seasoned business owners can walk through a variety of modules intended to help them become successful business owners.  Kaeser & Blair truly wants to see their business owners succeed, which distinguishes it from the pack of others who claim to be top direct sales companies.

Many companies claiming to be top direct sales companies also micromanage the businesses in order to ultimately produce more capital.  Kaeser & Blair does not. While they love to see their business owners succeed, what makes Kaeser & Blair one of the top direct sales companies is that they allow their business owners to maintain autonomy.  The business owner is in full control of where they take their career.  Once they become businesses owners, they truly are independent and operate their own businesses as they see fit—and make extra money doing so with industry-leading profits.  

Those industry-leading profits are another large piece of what makes Kaeser & Blair one of the top direct sales companies.  K&B business owners get paid faster than with any comparable businesses.  Many who claim to be top direct sales companies make their business owners wait for a check to receive their payment. Not with K&B. The payment is issued and in your account via direct deposit within 24 hours of submitting an order.  

Additionally, there are no required maintenance fees or investment of anything besides time.  Many direct sales companies require their business owners to make additional purchases along the way and maintain a set amount of inventory to showcase to potential clients.  What distinguishes the mediocre from the top direct sales companies is the lack of such inventory requirement. As a Kaeser & Blair Business Owner, you are not required to maintain any inventory or purchase any products to keep on hand. 

Not all who claim to be one of the top direct sales companies have the reputation and statistics and facts to back up that claim.  Kaeser & Blair does.

Stay-at-home jobs with Kaeser & Blair Put You in the Driver’s Seat

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-03-29 in News

Many companies that once required an employee’s regular presence in an office are doing a 180 and adopting more flexible requirements.  With the advancement of technology and the steady emergence of tools in the digital space, employers often allow employees to fulfill their daily duties from the comfort of their own homes.   

While there is no real shortage of stay-at-home jobs when looked at from this perspective, many of them seem to take a level of independence away from those who choose to partake in the opportunity.  They dictate when the employee should work, and companies treat employees as inferiors, not equals. Not Kaeser & Blair! Kaeser & Blair empowers each of its independent business owners by putting them in the driver’s seat. 

So what makes the Kaeser & Blair Business Owner Program one of the best stay-at-home jobs around today?  There are a few things.  

You are a business owner.

The stay-at-home jobs with Kaeser & Blair aren’t just jobs; they’re independent businesses that many choose to pursue as full-time careers. Some opportunities require you to sign contracts or forfeit away your rights if you choose to leave.  K&B does not. They call their promotional products salespeople “independent business owners” for a reason—because they are business owners in their own right. K&B takes pride in equipping each of their independent business owners with the tools they need to be successful, while allowing them to do business with whomever they choose and on terms they choose.

Some who pursue stay-at-home jobs with K&B work during the day, while others run their business in the evenings.  That element of flexibility is part of the beauty of the Kaeser & Blair opportunity.

You sell awesome products.

One of the things that makes the opportunity with Kaeser & Blair one of the best stay-at-home jobs is the industry that business owners are involved in—that of promotional products.  The promotional products industry is thriving, and rightfully so.  Businesses of every size and type use promotional products as a way of increasing brand and company awareness and expanding the reach of the business.  These products come in various forms, from t-shirts and mugs to flash drives and Bluetooth speakers.

When it Comes to Direct Selling Opportunities, Not All are Created Equal

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-03-15 in News

There is no shortage of direct selling opportunities these days.  We see it regularly on social media platforms—friends promoting opportunities that are “guaranteed” to earn money by allowing them to sell cool products.  Making lots of money sounds great, right? And how about schedule flexibility? Well, those direct selling opportunities seem to have that as well.

While these all generally sound great, direct selling opportunities don’t always deliver on what they’re selling.  There are a few things to seriously consider before pursuing one.

Products

All direct selling opportunities afford business owners the opportunity to sell products of some kind.  That’s a given.  What distinguish the best direct selling opportunities from the rest of the pack are the types of products being sold, as the quality and marketability of the products is vital to the success of the business. Some products are not in demand, or are simply too specific to certain demographics and lifestyles, while others are universal in their appeal.  Direct selling opportunities with the highest likelihood of success are those that sell products with near universal appeal.  This ensures that a demand is always there and finding new clients will not be an issue.

Partnership

One of the biggest indicators of successful direct selling opportunities is the reputation of the business with which you partner.  Many direct selling opportunities offer great products, excellent earnings, etc.  So what could go wrong? Well, very often, a direct sales company requires its business owners to sign contracts where they forfeit away portions of their business or client base should they choose to leave the industry.  Other times, companies subject their business owners to an immense number of restrictions based purely on what benefits them at the end of the day.  It is important to find direct selling opportunities in which the business relationship is treated as more of a partnership than a hierarchical system of ownership.  This is ultimately a reflection of the respect the company has for its business owners.

Plan

Many direct selling opportunities do not have a solid plan for success.  The majority require the purchase of a starter kit or some amount of inventory to get the seller started, but stop there.  They offer little advice on getting the business off the ground and seeking out clients, and provide little, if any, training along the way. Look for direct selling opportunities that, from day one, seem to empower those who choose them. They should offer educational and training opportunities along the way, as well as initial advice regarding how to get started and be successful.  

Pay

Many direct selling opportunities do not adequately share profits, and this is reflected in how they pay. Look for a company that rewards their business owners with a fair share of the profits from each sale.  Even better than a fair split of the profits are bonuses, incentives and referral profits.  This is a characteristic of an honest company that doesn’t just want to take advantage of its successful business owners.

Kaeser & Blair is one of the more unique direct selling opportunities because they want to see their business owners succeed, and work hard to make that happen. They offer their independent business owners the ability to sell awesome promotional products, while earning industry-leading profits and developing professionally along the way.  And there are no contracts!  With K&B, it is a true partnership, and you are set up for success from day one. See for yourself why Kaeser & Blair is one of the best direct selling opportunities around. 

Earn Extra Income in a Thriving and Exciting Industry

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-03-01 in News

Whether you’re a bit behind on bills, or just want to earn extra income to add to the family revenue stream, the promotional products industry offers a great way to do just that. Promotional products businesses put the business owner in the driver’s seat in an industry that is both on the rise and expected to expand in coming years. 

Industry Overview

Promotional products, also referred to advertising specialties, are anything that bears a company’s logo, slogan or other piece of brand equity.  They can be pens, mugs, t-shirts or a variety of other useful or novelty products.  Companies belonging to every industry use these products, making selling promotional products a great way to earn extra income.  If you take a second to consider the sheer number of local companies that would greatly benefit from these products, you will further understand why it is a great industry in which to get involved.

Industry Outlook

Many comparable opportunities to earn extra income are promoting fads, selling products that will fade into the trend horizon in the near future.  Promotional products are no such items.  Even as technology advances and new forms of advertising are made readily available, the demand for these products will remain.  How does the industry adapt?  This response can be witnessed in the consistent addition of new products to be marketed and sold.  For example, promotional product vendors are frequently updating their inventory to reflect the latest trends in technology and useful products.  The promotional products industry has consistently withstood the tests of time and deftly adapted, making it an increasingly reliable way to earn extra income.  

Industry Opportunities

With the expansion of the industry, the ability to earn extra income within the diverse world of promotional products is almost limitless. While many other areas of the economy are a bit flat, this business is booming.  In 2014 alone, the promotional products industry did over $21.5 billion in sales.  There is near endless potential to earn extra income, and the lengths to which you take your own promotional products business are limitless.

The Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program is a great way to get started in this thriving and exciting industry.  With K&B, you can earn extra income in a position that is creative, fun and leaves a lasting impression.  Learn more about the K&B opportunity.

Find a new sense of freedom when you start a home-based business

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-02-23 in News

The normal 9-to-5 routine that requires employees to be present in the office daily for a given amount of hours is quickly dying out for a variety of reasons.  Many people feel trapped by the constraints of this routine, one that often becomes both mundane and monotonous.  One of the best ways to break through and reclaim your professional freedom is by starting a home-based business.

A home-based business can come in a variety of forms.  Some people have a hobby that they choose to turn into a lucrative profession, while others choose to pursue a specific business model that has been laid out for them.  Many choose to pursue direct sales opportunities because of this – there is already a foundation laid that encourages success and makes starting and running a home-based business increasingly simple.

A home-based business can provide a level of flexibility that other opportunities simply don’t.  Many get the mental image of sitting on the couch in pajamas, armed with nothing but a laptop and get-it-done attitude. While this is a possibility with a home-based business, that is not necessarily reality.  A home-based business allows you to set your own schedule, so you can work the hours that you choose and from wherever you choose.  This can be from a home office, at the kitchen table or even from the comfort of a living room couch.

This flexibility that comes from a home-based business often puts the business owner in complete control of not only their environment, but also their earnings. With a home-based business, you can choose to work part time or full time, depending on your personal preference.  Since you set your schedule and work when you choose, you can theoretically earn unlimited income—especially with direct sales opportunities.  As with any other business endeavor involving sales, the more you work, the more you sales you make.  The more sales you make, the more you earn.

A home-based business can put you in control of more than just one area of your career, especially in the diverse world of direct sales. If you’re interested in starting a home-based business with a direct sales company that has an extensive history and stable reputation within the industry, consider Kaeser & Blair.  The Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program is an excellent opportunity to successfully regain control over your career, with a business model that has been turning ordinary people into entrepreneurs for decades.

What should low cost business opportunities offer you?

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-02-16 in News

Many companies across industries offer low cost business opportunities, or what they claim are low cost business opportunities.  The confusion arises from where the whole “low cost” thing comes into play—is it referring to low startup costs, maintenance costs or additional costs involved?  The truth is, with all low cost business opportunities, “low cost” should refer to each phase of running the business—from startup to simple maintenance.  And that’s how it is for Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products business owners, making it one of the best low cost business opportunities around.

Kaeser & Blair offers very inexpensive startup, and options to put you in control of the initial investment.  To begin your career as a promotional products business owner, you simply purchase one of the two business owner packages made available by K&B.  That’s right—unlike other low cost business opportunities, with K&B, you actually get to pick which option and which investment is best for you. The Standard Business Owner Package is $85, and includes product samples, a variety of manufacturer catalogs and immediate access to online resources—everything you need to get your business up and running at full force. 

The Premium Business Owner Package is an expanded version of the Standard Package.  It includes everything in the Standard Business Owner package, along with a personalized website with your own unique URL, additional catalogs, personal business cards and 100 Javelina Tropical pens with your own unique message.  At only $335, this expanded kit is intended to help you better build your brand and establish your self within the industry. 

Unlike many other low cost business opportunities—or those claiming to be low cost—Kaeser & Blair makes this opportunity risk-free.  When you sell your first $1,500 in promotional products, the $85 portion of your investment is refunded.  And if you decide within 30 days that selling promotional products isn’t for you, simply send the package back for a full refund.

Kaeser & Blair is also one of the more unique low cost business opportunities because there are no maintenance costs. Many low cost business opportunities require you to purchase and maintain a certain amount of inventory, with no guarantee that you’ll sell it.  Kaeser & Blair does not.  The purchase of the business owner package is the only investment required to start and maintain your business. Once that is purchased, the business owner focuses on investing their time selling promotional products to their clients, not investing their money maintaining the business.   

Low cost business opportunities should have a few things: inexpensive and risk-free start-up, and simple maintenance.  Kaeser & Blair offers its independent business owners each of these things, with some added bonuses.  The low cost business opportunities with Kaeser & Blair also offer industry-leading profits, faster payment and a partnership with a company that has a reputation rivaled by few.  It’s easy to see why Kaeser & Blair is one of the best low-cost business opportunities around today. 

Things to Consider Before Pursuing Your Own Business Ideas

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-02-02 in News

Being an entrepreneur is an appealing profession of sorts.  Entrepreneurs get to be their own boss, run their company and control their future.  Many struggle with where to begin the journey—how to find their own business ideas and what to consider when attempting to make them a reality.  When looking for your own business ideas, there are a few key characteristics to consider that will ultimately determine your ability to be successful with your new endeavor. 

Consider the investment of time and money.

Many jump headfirst with their own business ideas without properly evaluating the likelihood of success or the practical aspects of the business, such as the required investments of time and money.  When thinking about your own business ideas, it is important to take these into consideration—initial investment, maintenance and inventory costs (including office space and equipment purchase or rental), and any others that would be involved in the process.  Considering these investments will help prevent getting in over your head.

You need a plan.

When thinking about your own business ideas, it is very important to be realistic.  Make a plan for each idea, and think about the likelihood that it would be a success.  Consider the amount of time you need to invest initially, and the time it would take to maintain the business. Then truly consider whether or not it is sustainable.  Are you prepared to build the business from the ground up, or do you need to go with an option that does the majority of the work for you? Do you have the time to dedicate to your own business ideas, or do you need to go with an idea that has already been established and has an extensive history of success?

Consider a partnership.

One of the best ways to bring your own business ideas to life is to partner with a company that has an established model and reputation within a given industry.  The promotional products industry is booming, and Kaeser & Blair has been a leader in this industry for decades, helping turn ordinary people into successful entrepreneurs.  They offer an inexpensive business owner package—starting at $85—that includes everything needed to get your business up and running.

Additionally, there are no maintenance fees and no inventory to maintain when you pursue your own business ideas with Kaeser & Blair.  After the initial investment for the business owner package, you have nothing left to purchase. And since you can work from the location that is best for you, there is no cost for office maintenance or space rental.  Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program gives its business owners the perks of being an entrepreneur, minus the overhead.  

So stop just thinking about your own business ideas, and start taking action with Kaeser & Blair.  Get started today!

Promotional Products Careers Are A Fun Way to Earn Extra Money!

By Kurt Kaeser on 2016-01-19 in News

It’s very rare these days to find a career that you actually enjoy.  Many dread the trek to work, and dread the work they do there even more.  Promotional products careers are different.  They are incredibly rewarding, allowing you to establish relationships with clients and find creative solutions to problems facing businesses of every size and industry. 

You get to be creative while building relationships.  

Promotional products careers are a great creative outlet for many, and clients will often rely on your expertise and seek your valuable opinions. They will often depend on you to supply ideas regularly and make creative suggestions for specific items, colors, etc.  Sometimes they have projects in mind, but sometimes they don’t and are open to recommendations. That’s where you come in.

As a promotional advertising business owner, you also often form strong relationships with your clients.  These clients tend to become long-term clients, and will begin to trust not only your business sense and creative vision, but also your knowledge of the promotional advertising industry.  Many who pursue promotional products careers thus become a sort of creative problem solver for clients of all types.

You get to be your own boss.

One of the most appealing aspects of promotional products careers is that they allow you to be your own boss.  You are in complete control of the hours you work, the location from which you work and ultimately with whom you work.  Your clients are your own and you do business as you see fit – with the clients that you choose.  At the end of the day, you answer only to yourself and those clients.  If you are satisfied and your clients are happy, that’s all that matters.  This freedom is part of what draws many to start promotional products careers.

You are in control.

Promotional products careers put you in complete control of the success of your business.  Since you are your own boss and determine the hours you work, you ultimately determine how much you earn.  The more clients you work with, the more sales you will do and the more money you will ultimately make.  So if you are interested in pursuing promotional products careers purely for supplemental income, you have that ability; or if you’d like to pursue the opportunity full time, that is an option as well.  You are in the driver’s seat with promotional products careers.

So what’s holding you back from taking advantage of all the positive things that promotional products careers have to offer? Learn more about the promotional products careers with Kaeser & Blair and see for yourself what they can do for you.

Is Selling Promotional Products Right for You?

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-12-22 in News

Selling promotional products has become an increasingly popular way to earn a substantial income in a rewarding and thriving industry. It allows you to be creative, be your own boss, and puts you in full control of your own success.  There are, however, a few characteristics that you should you look for in a company in order to make the most out of your career selling promotional products.

 

To be successful at selling promotional products, you need to be sure that you’re partnering with a company with a solid reputation within the industry.  You should be sure you’re selling promotional products with a company that has a rock-solid credit rating and an extensive history within the industry.  This not only ensures that your clients will want to do business with you and feel safe doing so, but also that product vendors approach your orders with priority. This will help you achieve success, while enhancing your credibility along the way. 

 

Selling promotional products and being successful doing so also typically requires some external motivation from your promotional products company. This can be in the form of bonuses, incentives or other rewards that the promotional products company offers to encourage its business owners to be even more successful at selling the products. A business owner should be adequately rewarded for their sales, and the company with which they partner should have that mentality as well.

 

When you look for an opportunity to begin selling promotional products, it’s also important to take into consideration the resources available to each business owner.  The company with which you partner should place an emphasis on personal and professional development, and should have resources in place to successfully foster that development.  These could be online training courses, seminars or access to literature that fosters growth and development within the promotional products industry – tools that will ultimately aid in your success selling promotional products.

 

Kaeser & Blair has a rock-solid reputation within the promotional products industry, offers top-notch incentives and gives its business owners access to an arsenal of resources.  The industry-leading bonuses, incentives and referral profits awarded to business owners are both motivation and reward for excelling at selling promotional products.  K&B also offers an abundance of resources to aid business owners in their development – from an array of literature to 24/7 online access to webinars and classes.  Kaeser & Blair is in place to ensure that successfully selling promotional products is a breeze and a blast for their business owners.

What to Look for in Good Flexible Work Opportunities

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-12-15 in News

Various studies have revealed that flexible work has an abundance of benefits – not just for the employee, but also for those that play an active role in the employee’s life.  Individuals that have a flexible work schedule tend to be genuinely more satisfied overall, and it shows.  That being said, not every opportunity is created equal.  If you are considering pursuing flexible work, look for the following characteristics to determine the best opportunities from the not so great.

 

Ability to be Part or Full-Time

 

One defining factor of flexible work is the opportunity to basically work as much – or as little – as you want.  A true flexible work opportunity should allow you to work 10 hours per week should you choose to do so, or 60 if you want.  You should have the power to completely control your work schedule.

 

With Kaeser & Blair, you are your own independent business owner, meaning that you have control over every aspect of your business – including your schedule. You get to determine the hours you work and the hours that you devote to other activities, making it a perfect opportunity for those looking for flexible work to fit seamlessly within an already hectic schedule. 

 

Location

 

A true flexible work opportunity should also allow you to work from whatever location you choose – whether it be from your home, an office, etc.  Many jobs promote themselves as offering individuals the opportunity for flexible work, but require employees to be present at a given location for a certain amount of hours in a given time frame.  Any job that requires you to work from a specific location during specific hours should not be considered the best opportunity for flexible work. 

 

Kaeser & Blair allows you to work from whatever location you choose.  This freedom allows you to work from home should you choose to do so, or from wherever else is most convenient. K&B puts you in complete control of the daily events and details associated with running your business. 

 

Earning Potential

 

An opportunity for flexible work should allow you to also earn basically as much as you want, according to your particular schedule. That is one of the highlights of flexible work – the individual has complete control over how much he or she earns due to their control over hours worked per week.  The more you work, the more you can and should earn. 

 

And that’s exactly how it is with the flexible work opportunity with Kaeser & Blair. You earn income based on the work that you do.  The more you work and the more clients you acquire, the more you earn.  With K&B, you’re rewarded for each and every little bit of work you do, as you should be. 

 

The Kaeser & Blair Difference

 

Kaeser & Blair offers an opportunity for flexible work where you are in complete control.  With Kaeser & Blair, you are your own boss.  You set the hours you work, determine where and who you work with and ultimately determine the lengths to which you take your business.

 

K&B makes getting started easy by offering two business owner packages to help you take advantage of this opportunity for flexible work.  The Standard Business Owner Package is only $85, and contains everything needed to make your business a success on your terms.  They even offer the opportunity to try it out before you fully commit with the FREE Trial Launch Kit. 

 

See for yourself just how great this opportunity for flexible work can be for you.

Consider This Before You Start a Home Business

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-12-01 in News

Many people are departing from traditional office life, and are instead choosing to start a home business.  This can be a great opportunity, as people who choose to do so have the option to work more flexible hours and around the demands of a hectic personal life.  It often sounds like the ideal setup, and rightfully so!  There are, however, a few things to consider before you do actually start a home business. 

 

You Will Need to Prioritize

In order to start a home business and do so successfully with minimal infringement on other daily household ongoings, it is vital to determine where work fits on your list of priorities.  You must consider things such as family and personal time, and where your work fits in alongside these.  This will allow you to successfully schedule and manage your time more effectively with minimal impact on others in the household and your overall set of priorities.  Many find it difficult to keep work/personal life separate when they start a home business, but effectively prioritizing the activities within the household will make doing so a bit easier.

Kaeser & Blair makes it easy to start a home business amidst existing priorities by offering freedom and flexibility.  When you become a Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products business owner, you own your own business.  You are your own boss, meaning that you determine when and where you work.  This freedom afforded to K&B business owners allows business owners to seamlessly fit their work into their life at home.

 

Plan on a Little Bit of Legwork

When you start a home business, you will do the vast majority of work from the comfort of your home.  That being said, it in no way means that the only work you do will be from home, especially when you are just getting yourself established.  When attempting to find and secure clients, you will most likely need a bit of face-to-face interaction.  Most clients initially like meeting in person, and will often ask for a meeting from time to time to see new promotional product ideas for new projects they are working on. 

When you start a home business as a Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products business owner, your unnecessary legwork is kept to a minimum.  All you have to do is seek out clients, secure the orders and submit them, and we take over from there.  We handle all product delivery, payment collection and invoicing – allowing you to do the vast majority of the work from the comfort of your own home.

 

Very Little Extra Space is Needed

When you start a home business, you don’t necessarily need a ton of extra space to get started or maintain your business.  Many people think they need a separate room for a home office from which to work, or extra space to store and maintain products or supplies.  While this is the case sometimes, it is not always true. 

Take the opportunity to start a home business with Kaeser & Blair as an example.  Kaeser & Blair does not require its business owners to maintain any inventory or purchase any extra products, meaning that no extra space is needed to perform routine daily activities for your job. 

The Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program offers the perfect opportunity to start a home business.  Our business owners get the freedom and flexibility to work however much they choose, allowing for a seamless fit into everyday routines without the need for a home office or a ton of extra space.  Additionally, we keep the legwork to a minimum, making it the perfect opportunity.  Get started today!

Helpful Tips for Running a Part-Time Business

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-10-27 in News

Running a part-time business can be a great way to both effectively balance your personal and professional life, as well as earn supplemental income.  For these reasons among others, an increasing number of people are choosing to pursue part-time work.  We’re working to give you a leg up on the competition with some tips to make running a part-time business an even greater success.

 

Define Parameters

One essential rule to running a part-time business is to define what “part-time” really means to you.  Part-time work for some people means working 2 days per week for 8 hours each day, but for others part-time can mean working every weekday for only 3-4 hours at a time.  The definition of part-time varies person to person, but determining what it means to you is vital to successfully managing your time and running a part-time business. 

 

Time Management is Key

Because you’re devoting less time running a part-time business than you would if you were full time, the time you devote to your work should be considered that much more valuable.  Most people who begin running a part-time business do so because they have pre-existing priorities or schedules that require being worked around – whether it is a full-time job with “normal” hours or a packed family schedule.  Identify times when you’re needed elsewhere and what times are free, and set “work times” based on that schedule.  Choose blocks of time that seamlessly fit between your other obligations, and work only within those times at whatever intervals work best.

 

Learn from Mistakes

When running a part-time business, setbacks and failures in both major and minor forms are inevitable.  You will win some, and you will lose some.  This goes for clients, sales, as well of a variety of other situations.  The important part of this process when running a part-time business is to learn from mistakes so that you don’t repeat them.  If something was communicated in an ineffective manner and it ultimately lost you business, communicate the information differently in the future.  Constantly building on past experiences – both good and bad – is vital to successfully starting and running a part-time business.

 

Select a Mentor

When running a part-time business, it is vital that you find a mentor – someone who has established him or herself within the industry.  Meet with this person regularly and discuss your business goals and progress toward reaching them.   Ask them how they became successful at running a part-time business and truly listen to their response and mirror their actions.  Running a part-time business and doing so successfully is often a result of not only learning from your own successes and failures, but from those of your predecessors. 

If you’re interested in putting these tips for running a part-time business to work, let Kaeser & Blair help you do just that with your own promotional products business.  Kaeser & Blair has the largest number of independent business owners in the industry, and a reputation rivaled by few.  Kaeser & Blair makes starting and running a part-time business easier than ever.  They even offer the opportunity to try it before you fully commit with their free trial launch kit.  Successfully starting and running a part-time business has never been so easy!

By on 2015-10-20 in News

Make the Most of Today’s Small Business Opportunities

By on 2015-10-13 in News

Recently, there has been a shift from choosing career paths within the corporate framework of larger companies to individuals actively choosing to pursue a variety of small business opportunities elsewhere.  Many people no longer have the desire to work FOR someone else, instead choose to try their hands at entrepreneurship for a variety of reasons.  For those of you that have that desire or have chosen that path, here are some ways to make the most of today’s small business opportunities.

Set Goals and Create a Plan to Reach Them

The most successful small business opportunities begin with setting realistic, achievable goals and formulating a solid plan to reach them.  Comparable to making a “to-do” list, making a list of small steps to achieving your larger goals – ones that you can steadily cross off as they’re achieved – not only increases individual productivity, but also increases the likelihood that you will turn any of your small business opportunities into lucrative, revenue- building businesses. 

These goals need to be concrete – with specific numbers, values, timelines, etc.  These will provide you with a specific point where you can successfully say that you have completed the tasks, and will also help you visualize how far you have left to go before you reach them.

Be Patient and Persevere

The old adage “Rome wasn’t built in a day” applies universally to the realm of turning small business opportunities into lucrative realities. From first getting established financially to actually seeing a substantial return on your investment of time and energy, the process of making the most of small business opportunities takes time – and quite a bit of it. 

The most important thing to bear in mind is to maintain patience and a positive attitude.  All of the work you put in will benefit you with a sufficient amount of perseverance and an understanding that you will be rewarded.  You aren’t going to see results right away.  Results only come from persistent hard work, dedication and optimism.  If at first you don’t succeed, try again.

Network, Network, Network

Successfully capitalizing on small business opportunities and turning them into lucrative, full-time businesses often depends on building and maintaining clients and professional relationships.  And how is this done?  Networking.  When getting started with small business opportunities, always keep your business cards on hand and fully stocked.  When meeting people – even in the most casual of environments – don’t be afraid to engage in small talk.  More often than not, the generic “So what do you do?” can turn into a potential lead, and an opportunity to dish out your business card and offer up your services.  This is one of the most successful ways of turning small business opportunities into rewarding careers.

If you’re currently exploring small business opportunities and wish to pursue one with a long history of industry success, consider the Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program.  From the point that the business owner application is received and approved, K&B business owners are constantly receiving support, advice and access to resources to help them run their own lucrative businesses.  With K&B, you can be part of a network of successful entrepreneurs, business owners and rewarding small business opportunities.  Kaeser & Blair’s longstanding mission is to be a company focused on providing each business owner with the tools they need they to not only succeed, but truly excel.

The Mass Appeal of the “Work for Yourself” Lifestyle

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-09-22 in News

If the opportunity to work for yourself presented itself, would you take it?  Nine times out of ten, the answer would be a strong, excited “yes.”  So why is there this innate desire within all of us to be self-employed, and why is this desire to work for yourself so strong?  Simply put, that drive exists because the opportunity is pretty awesome – for a few reasons.


Flexibility 

When you work for yourself, one perk is that you have the ability to set your own schedule.  Working for yourself allows you to dictate when you want to work, when you need a break, etc., often allowing the opportunity to work unorthodox hours if you choose to do so. This flexibility makes the “work for yourself” lifestyle increasingly appealing to those with shifting priorities or a demanding life outside of work.  


Earning Potential

The fact that you set own schedule, create your own rules and ultimately work within the parameters that you set allow for near limitless earning potential when you work for yourself.  This is not to say that you will be a guaranteed millionaire if you work 14 hours a day and are constantly networking or in pursuit of new leads; but you do have the option to make more than a salaried position if the drive and desire is there. 


Independence

Quite possibly the most enticing aspect of going to work for yourself is the independence factor – knowing that you are working for yourself and not for an authority figure in some archaic hierarchical system.  If you work for yourself, you have no boss to answer to – no superior to ask you to forego family events to work on a weekend, etc.  At the end of the day, you answer only to yourself and your clients.  As long as you and your clients are content, then you can consider your business a success. 


If you have a desire to work for yourself and achieve this combination of flexibility, independence and unlimited earning potential, consider the opportunity to be a business owner with Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products. K&B offers its business owners the flexibility, earning potential and independence that comes with any work-for-yourself opportunity. Our honest, straightforward and proven approach has helped thousands achieve and realize the career, earnings and work/life balance they deserve.

Cash in on Home Business Opportunities

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-09-14 in News

The digital age that we live in makes it easier than ever to take full advantage of home business opportunities that arise.  An increasing number of companies are allowing their employees to work from home, and even more people are starting small businesses from the comfortable position of a home office- or even on their living room couch.  


Though it sounds far more convenient and appealing than sitting in hours of rush-hour traffic and dragging yourself into an office suite five days a week, it is often difficult to healthily juggle home and work life when both exist under the same roof.  We have assembled a few tips for making the transition and ultimately capitalizing on a home business opportunity. 


Keep Work Separate.


The healthy takeoff and maintenance of any home business opportunity requires the separation of work and home, both physically and mentally.  When your office exists within the walls of your house and not elsewhere, it is incredibly difficult to keep your professional life from infringing on the lives of those within the household.  You can minimize this by setting aside a space designated solely for work.  


Create a home office space, and limit your work only to that home office.  Do NOT take your work into the living room, as this would violate the sanctity of the space.  Your entire home would become a single office, and where then would you go to escape it all and give yourself a mental break?  This separation is vital to both the state of your personal life and the ultimate success of the home business opportunity that you want to bring to life. 


Set a Schedule.


Capitalizing on home business opportunities and being successful—without imposing on the lives of other members of your household—requires setting a schedule and sticking to it.  Schedule when to work, and work only within those hours.  Don’t let your work dictate the schedule of those within your household.  


Schedule meetings with clients, when to make calls, when to send out emails and even when to pursue potential leads.  This not only encourages productivity, but also helps isolate certain tasks that tend to be pushed back to time that should be designated for other activities.  In the long run, this will minimize the impact that your home business opportunity has on those around you, as well as increase the likelihood of making it a success.  


Use Technology to your Advantage.


Technological progress is making it easier than ever to bring home business opportunities to life, and make them increasingly successful.  Certain websites and apps cater to clients who desire to do business virtually, specifically from a location other than a conference room.  It is now possible to “attend” e-meetings with clients from the convenience of your own home, and to interact with them as though you are face to face.  


In addition, social media platforms are making networking and business promotion a much less daunting task.  A simple Tweet or post about the services offered by your business is often all it takes to get your friends and other members of your network talking.  


When attempting to capitalize on home business opportunities that cross your path, it truly is all about balance and adequate use of the resources at your disposal.


If you are looking for a way to make money and better balance home and work life, consider becoming a business owner with Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products.  K&B showcases only high quality products, competitive prices, quick turnaround time, easy online ordering, great support, and fast payment.  


In addition, as a business owner with K&B, you avoid:


-Inventory purchasing and maintenance (no extra money or space needed)

-Product delivery (we do the heavy lifting) 

-Collecting money and credit hassles (we’re your in-house accountant) 

-Party hosting (because hosting parties isn’t all tea sandwiches and spritzers)

We’re an industry leader with a proven 100-year record of helping each of our 2,000 business owners truly live the American Dream.  To learn more about home business opportunities with Kaeser & Blair, click here.


Small Business Opportunities for Women are Boundless

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-09-11 in News

As of 2014, it is estimated that there are nearly 9.1 million women-owned businesses in the US, according to the “State of Women Owned Businesses Report,” commissioned by American Express OPEN.  What does this statistic reveal?  Quite simply, it reveals that small business opportunities for women are abundant, and an increasing number of women are capitalizing on them.  It’s just a matter of identifying an existing void in the market, and determining how you can apply your skills to uniquely and seamlessly fill that void.  


Blogging. 


Starting a blog sounds like far from an ideal or lucrative small business opportunity for women; however, blogging can be a rewarding endeavor—both intellectually and financially.  Many question how it is possible to make a living simply from blogging, but it is now easier than ever to turn what was once considered a hobby into a small business. 


To run a successful blog, it is vital that you find your niche.  We aren’t talking about generic niches like “cooking” or “organizing.”  If you’re interested in cooking, narrow the focus of your blog to a specific type of cooking- vegan, Indian, etc.  The most successful blogs and ultimately best small business opportunities for women are those that are incredibly specific, almost to the point that many question why people would have a desire to read the content.  This will not only gain you a more loyal following, but will also set you apart as a form of expert in the field.


Selling Handmade Goods.


There are a variety of small business opportunities for women within the realm of handmade crafts/goods.  With the rise of industrial techniques, mass production and outsourcing, demand for unique, hand-made, high quality products has never been stronger.  Consumers are becoming more informed, reading labels and are expressing genuine concern and interest in the origins of the products they purchase.  


For this reason, a product with a story, or one with unique, hand-made origins is growing increasingly desirable—and increasingly rare.  What were once considered to be “hobbies” are thus turning into awesome small business opportunities for women.  Websites such as Etsy make it simpler than ever to market and sell products from the convenience of your own home, without the necessary upkeep, building fees and overall maintenance costs that an actual store would require. 


Photography. 


One of the best and most flexible small business opportunities for women is photography. The primary investment required to step into the realm of professional photography is typically the purchase of a good camera, so if you already own a camera, then you’re one step ahead.  


The next step necessary to get your small business in photography started is to expand your portfolio, and work feverishly to hone your skills.  Start by doing simple headshots or portraits for family or friends free of charge.  You’ll find that many individuals are willing and eager to jump on an opportunity to “model,” and will do so with unrivaled enthusiasm. These portfolio-building portraits can be taken in public locations—assuming the lighting allows it—and typically require no money for additional lighting equipment or venue rental. You could ultimately aim to expand your small business and run a studio from home, or you could opt to continue with on-site shoots.  


Direct Sales. 


A great small business opportunity for women also lies within the diverse and vast world of direct sales.  In a direct sales role, you are the vendor, selling directly to the consumer.  There is no need for a retail location, which saves a substantial amount of money in the long run and allows you to invest more heavily in your business.  


The small business opportunity found within the direct sales world allows for a flexible schedule, and bends with the trade winds brought on by a busy personal life.  With sales, you often have the ability to be your own boss, create your own schedule, and ultimately, to earn however much money you want.  A direct sales lifestyle thus fits seamlessly into a busy woman’s daily life.  


If you are considering pursuing a small business opportunity in direct sales, look no further than Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Ownership Program.  


Unlike other small business opportunities for women, as a business owner with K&B, you avoid:


-Inventory purchasing/maintenance [no major damage to your pocketbook]

-Product delivery [we do the heavy lifting]

-Collecting money and credit hassles [we’re your in-house accountant]

-Any emphasis on recruiting and uplining [no pyramid scheme here]

-Party hosting [because hosting parties isn’t just tea sandwiches and spritzers]

How to Identify Solid Part-Time Business Ideas

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-09-08 in News

Let’s be honest.  We’re all looking for ways to make some additional money and take advantage of any opportunity to do so when it arises.  Starting a part-time business is one way to do just that.  So what does it take to distinguish the good part-time business ideas from the bad?  It simply takes the ability to recognize a good opportunity when it reveals itself.  


Here are a few things to consider before bringing any of your part-time business ideas to life.


Is your part-time business idea part of a successful industry with in-demand products and services?


Consider the market.  What are people demanding, and is this demand going to exist even a single year into the future?  Does this industry have a successful track record that has been able to withstand the tests of time?  Will it exist long enough to make your part-time business ideas become more than just ideas? 


Take, for instance, the Kaeser & Blair model.  As a part-time K&B Promotional Products business owner, you would be part of a successful framework that has been around for over 100 years. The promotional products industry is a $21.5 billion industry, and one that continues to expand.  The demand for these products isn’t disappearing anytime soon.


How much up-front investment is required by you to get your part-time business idea up and running, and what is the financial risk involved?


You must strongly consider the amount of time, energy and money that will be required to bring your part-time business idea to life.  Think of each of these elements as investments.  What ultimately becomes of your part-time business idea is your return on investment.  You want to maximize your return on investment, or at least ensure that the risk doesn’t outweigh the ultimate return.  


With the K&B Business Ownership Program, there is no risk.  The Standard Business Owner Package is a small $85 investment, and will be refunded when you make your first $1500 in sales.  While most part-time business ideas require a substantial and potentially risky investment up front, becoming a part-time business owner with Kaeser & Blair does not. 


Are there potential customers in your area to support your part-time business idea?


With any successful business venture, the presence – or lack of – a demand for the product or service that you are offering must be considered.  Every business in your area, no matter how small or large, is a potential customer.  The question to ask is if they are willing to “buy what you’re selling”.  


The promotional products industry hit a record high in 2014, with sales over $21.5 billion.  That steady upward progression demonstrates that demand for promotional products will continue long into the future.  Though the types of products in demand can (and will) fluctuate with time, people will continue purchasing branded items to grow their companies.  


Does the part-time business idea require a lot of inventory, space or specialized equipment?

 

You MUST take logistics into consideration.   Consider the amount of space, equipment and time required to bring your part-time business idea to life, and also the process of bringing the products to consumers.  Truly put thought into the amount of time, energy and equipment to not only get your business up and running, but also to maintain and deliver quality goods and services.  


Consider K&B.  Unlike most part-time business ideas, being a K&B business owner requires no specialized equipment.  Additionally, there is no need for additional space to manage inventory, and the business owner does absolutely zero delivery. 


For a part-time business idea with a timeless model and history of success, consider becoming a Kaeser & Blair business owner.  K&B showcases only high quality products, competitive prices, quick turnaround time, easy online ordering, great support, and fast payment (profits are paid upon order entry). We’re an industry leader with a proven 100-year record of helping each of our business owners truly live the American Dream.


Jobs for Stay-at-Home Moms – Overcoming the Obstacles

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-09-03 in News

Being a stay-at-home mom is a tough gig.  Between taking the kids to school, taking care of the house and taking care of yourself (rinse and repeat), there is little time left to do anything that is truly for you.  Pursuing a new career – yeah, that’s definitely off the table, right?  Wrong!  The number and types of jobs specifically for stay-at-home moms are actually growing. 


So what’s standing in your way?


Obstacle 1: How do I find time to work when my kids are home with me throughout the day? 


Jobs for stay-at-home moms require flexibility.  Look for a position that does not require you to be sedentary or focused for hours at a time, but that allows for you to change a diaper or give a bottle between tasks.  Most jobs for stay-at-home moms allow you to maintain your current schedule of activities/responsibilities while also furthering your career.  For stay-at-home moms, job opportunities that allow you to work unorthodox hours are ideal as well.  Flexibility is key.  


Obstacle 2: Many places sell the “work at home” dream, but don’t deliver.  How do I distinguish a good opportunity from a scam?


Oftentimes, jobs aimed specifically at stay-at-home moms make overly ambitious claims to bring abundant wealth to those who choose to partake.  These claims tend to make people skeptical.  If they promise a grand reward or luxurious lifestyle at a speed that seems supremely unrealistic, there is probably a reason for just a tinge of skepticism.  


To avoid scams, look for jobs for stay-at-home moms that have a proven history of success.  And if the company boasts awards or client testimonials, it greatly enhances their credibility and ultimately, your chance of success.   


Obstacle 3:  I don’t have much money to invest or put into an opportunity.  


Jobs for stay-at-home moms that require a large up-front investment are rarely a worthy or viable investment.  Many companies promoting a “great opportunity” for stay-at-home moms require a hefty initial investment, and oftentimes you don’t get to see a sufficient return on investment.  This is something that you neither have the time nor money to risk.  After all, with only one member of the family in the workforce, the ability to fork over a substantial amount of money without a guaranteed return is often highly unlikely.  To avoid this, look for jobs for stay-at-home moms that require little up-front investment, or that offer a risk-free opportunity.  This would ensure that you do not waste your money or get in over your head financially. 


If you’re a stay-at-home mom looking for a flexible, risk-free job opportunity, look no further than Kaeser & Blair.  Through the Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program, you are your own boss.  You determine when, where and how much you want to work, and there is little investment required and zero risk to get started.  


As a promotional products business owner with K&B, you can rest assured that you will be partnering with an industry leader with an unrivaled history of turning everyday individuals into successful entrepreneurs.

Need a home business idea? We’ve got one for you

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-08-31 in News

Do you have the desire to work from home, but need a home business idea?  With so many offers out there that sell the “work from home” lifestyle, it’s difficult to sift through the real and the fake, and those who deliver on their promises from those who don’t.  Luckily, there’s a company that is taking the guesswork out of it.  Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program offers a lucrative entrepreneurial opportunity to those want to work from home, but need a home business idea that possesses certain characteristics.  


Demand


The opportunity with K&B is perfect for those who need a home business idea that offers a product in constant demand.  The promotional products industry is a $21.5 billion industry, and continuously growing.  Virtually every business uses promotional products as a means of advertising, primarily due to the fact that they are so effective.  Much like the effectiveness of the product, the demand is not going away either.  Instead, it is expected to only increase in the future, making it a potentially incredibly lucrative opportunity and a great home business idea. 


Flexibility


The opportunity with K&B is also perfect for those who need a home business idea with added flexibility.  As a K&B business owner, you are your own boss. You determine the hours you work, the clients you serve, where you work and ultimately how successful you are.  Stay-at-home moms, those looking for a career move and those who simply desire to work at their own convenience find this aspect particularly appealing.


No Risk


K&B Promotional Products Business Owner Program is perfect for those who need a home business idea that is also risk-free with little to no start up cost. To get started, you have the option to choose between two starter packages: the Standard Business Owner Package ($85) and the Premium Business Owner Package ($335).  Each of these packages provides a variety of tools that will ultimately aid in your success.  If for some reason you decide that it isn’t for you, return the package within 30 days for a full refund.


If you find yourself in need of a home business idea, look no further than the Kaeser & Blair Business Owner Program.  Kaeser & Blair provides each business owner the information to not only get started, but be successful in the promotional products industry.  Kaeser & Blair has a long history of success, and a track record of turning ordinary individuals into business owners.  So don’t just sit around thinking about how you so desperately want or need a home business idea. Let Kaeser & Blair help you make it a reality.  


The Many Advantages of a Flexible Work Schedule

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-08-28 in News



A job with flexible hours- that’s the dream, right? While most would be hustling to outmaneuver rush hour traffic to and from work, you would have the ability to escape and avoid the annoying hassles associated with it.  The ability to choose the hours that you work is a feature that is becoming a bit more common across today’s business platform.  Besides just convenience, there are a few other personal benefits and advantages of a flexible work schedule that are often overlooked. 


Work When You’re At Your Peak


One advantage of a flexible work schedule is that it allows people to work when they are at their personal peak. Though studies frequently reveal that people are in their intellectual prime about two hours after waking, this is not a universal phenomenon. Not everyone performs at his or her best during the hours demanded by a “typical” workday.  Many people are actually the opposite and subsequently benefit from the many advantages of a flexible work schedule.  For example, self-described night owls prefer to work at night, and oftentimes produce superior work when given the ability to work when they choose and during hours in which they are at their individual best. 


Juggle All of Life’s Responsibilities 


Another advantage of a flexible work schedule is that it allows for those with priorities outside of work to regularly tend to those while maintaining a job.  A flexible schedule is ideal for those whose everyday life demands their attention at odd hours, often sporadically.  The advantages of flexible work schedules often benefit stay-at-home moms, people with family members that require extra care, etc.  They are often able to juggle their extended list of responsibilities when they have the option to work flexible hours. 


Enhanced Quality of Life


Another advantage of a flexible work schedule is an overall increased quality of life.  Those who are able to create their own hours and choose when to work are generally more satisfied with life – both at work and beyond.  People who take advantage of a flexible work schedule have an increased sense of control in their lives, which in and of itself is a form of empowerment.  Empowered people are happy people, and happy people both produce higher quality work and demonstrate higher job satisfaction overall than their less empowered counterparts. 


If you want to experience the advantages of a flexible work schedule, Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Business Owner Program is the perfect opportunity.  K&B offers individuals a flexible, risk-free opportunity to be independent business owners in an industry that does over $21.5 billion in sales each year. Getting started selling promotional products is simple and easy, with business owner starter packages beginning at $85.

The Promotional Products Industry is a lucrative small business opportunity for women.

Do People Hate Advertising or Just Think They Do?

By Gregg Emmer on 2015-06-19 in News

How ironic that an industry dedicated to communications, public relations and identity building has a public perception of its honesty and ethics equal to stockbrokers and members of Congress! In November of 2012 Gallup polled people on their impression of different occupations and industries. Only 11percent said they gave advertising high marks. 36 percent gave low marks and 50 percent were in the middle with little opinion either way.

This negative sentiment has been reinforced over the years by comments from influential people. Will Rogers said, "Advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don't have for something they don't need." H. G. Wells was a bit more blunt, he said, "Advertising is legalized lying." So that the average person regards advertising in a negative way is not surprising at all. But do they really hate advertising?

The best answer is sometimes. Early in my marketing career I came up with a simple definition: Advertising Informs, Marketing Motivates. The problem is that people only want to be informed when they want the information. Simple right? But advertisers have no idea when a consumer wants information so they constantly bombard them with the information, hoping that at some point there will be a moment when the advertising information is wanted. And that moment will come – but up until that point and again once that point is passed – advertising is annoying, intrusive, condescending and many times embarrassing. Advertisers try to create entertaining ads to overcome the general desire to ignore the ads by flipping pages past them, pushing the fast forward on the remote or switching to the "other" station on the radio.

But something amazing happens when a consumer is ready to accept the information. For example, Tom and Jane are looking for a new larger car because they are expecting their first child. Instantly every car ad is being scrutinized, diaper ads are really interesting and investment ads about future security make a lot of sense! If only advertisers could know when their ads will be accepted and important to people, then they could avoid wasting time and money pushing information to disinterested consumers. Enter big data.

Big data or the process of collecting information about a consumer, electronically digesting that information and then pushing out ads that may be interesting to the consumer based on the data collected – is the latest concept. And guess what the reaction of consumers is to being bombarded with targeted ad? They hate it! Even when the ads are very much in line with a current interest of the consumer, the invasion of privacy and ad clutter can have a negative impact. Just go online and search for something – say hiking boots. For weeks following that search you will get hundreds of ads for hiking boots even if you made a purchase the same day you ran your search. The fundamental dislike for advertising is not changed by the technology, people still only want the information when they want it. So what is an advertiser to do?

By using promotional marketing/specialty advertising exclusively or as a component of a marketing campaign, a basic message will simply be handy for a consumer to react to when they are ready willing and able to respond. For a start, promotional marketing/specialty advertising is the only non-intrusive advertising and people appreciate that. We don’t interrupt the TV program they are watching or break up the article they are reading or take up a full 1/3 or the air time on the radio. We don’t even interrupt the scenery along the highway with billboards and flashing lights! It is also the only advertising that people thank you for!

In the bigger picture where advertising will be readily accepted and appreciated because a consumer is interested in receiving the information, specialty advertising is more accurate and more immediate than “big data”. Delivery of advertising after data is collected and processed is reactive. The consumer is already actively gathering information. But if a message delivered by specialty advertising prompts contact between the consumer and advertiser, that advertiser gets total access to the consumer to deliver the information. The tangible aspect of a message delivered with a specialty item also reinforces an affinity for the merchant that a fleeting banner ad can never provide.

Now the best part of all of this – people don't hate specialty advertising even sometimes – but they hate every other method more often than not. That is an extremely important point to discuss with your clients. The idea of breaking through ad clutter with entertaining ads, celebrities, outlandish antics or over the top claims are unnecessary when consumers will happily wait in line to take your message away with them on an interesting, useful or decorative "gift" – a well selected specialty advertising item.

I'm hopeful you have realized that this article is about promotional marketing/specialty advertising and not promotional products. If you confuse what we do with what we use and all you find yourself doing is selling promotional products, then accept my apology for wasting six minutes of your time!

Each afternoon, Kaeser & Blair’s top sales people could do what they wanted. They could spend it at the pool, the beach, or touring all the amazing sites around Galveston. Kaeser & Blair also had some tours set up for them if they wanted to participate, including a historic tour of the island and a cruise with dolphins.

Each night, a fabulous dinner was served. The final dinner was a formal recognition for some of the sales people, as well as the announcement for next year’s summit.

The event was a huge success and was very well received by everyone.


“Thank you so much for a wonderful trip and all the hospitality. I really liked this format. Every supplier had an idea for me. Hotel was beautiful.” -Sue

Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products Owner Success Story: Sally Anderson; career stay at home mom with flexible working, flexible hours.

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-05-19 in News

Guest Blogger: Sally Anderson


Many of us dream of the day when we can have time off or not have to worry about missing the “big game” because of some activity at work. Either there is a time off issue, or I may be running late because of a management meeting; but many moms, to make ends meet have had to sacrifice family time for their jobs.

Kaeser & Blair offers the perfect career for the stay at home mom with flexible working, flexible hours. Being a promotional products business owner, one of the key perks is making your own schedule! My name is Sally Anderson and I am a stay at home mom with a husband and two kids. After having my children, I took three years off from the career world to enjoy my life as a full time mommy.  Once both were in preschool, I learned about the Kaeser & Blair’s promotional products business opportunity. I was skeptical at first, and so was my husband but I signed on! Five years later, I would never have dreamed the success I am having as a career stay at home mom. 

I didn’t have any personal experience in the promotional products industry, whatsoever, but Kaeser & Blair was the opportunity I needed. It’s the perfect career with flexible working, flexible hours. In my video testimonial, I explain how with Kaeser & Blair I am able to enjoy the perks of work, but at the same time have the flexible working, flexible hours to make my own schedule. I liked the idea of not being pinned to an office. The important thing about making your own schedule is being able to schedule family events and still make extra cash.

Because of Kaeser & Blair’s flexible working, flexible hours, I have the ability to work when I want, and from anywhere with my iPad or iPhone. I never have to miss out on time with family because I have to work late. I never have to miss out on my kid’s activities because of flexible working, flexible hours. I never have to worry about when I’ll take my next vacation because I can go anytime I want!

Because of flexible working, flexible hours I can still make sure my customers are taken care of without ever missing another precious family event. Unlike other promotional product businesses, Kaeser & Blair has the strongest reputation in the industry. They have been around since 1894 and have the highest D&B credit rating available. This helps me in two ways: 1) I know I am in good hands with a good company. 2) With setting my own schedule, I have time to network in my free time; in other words I can work without being at work. Lots of the people I meet or come into contact with are potential customers and I don’t even have to go out of my way to find them!  In fact, one of my more recent new customers was a fellow soccer mom who saw me working while our daughters practiced together!

Apply basic gardening principles to cultivate your small business opportunity

By Kurt Kaeser on 2015-04-30 in News



Have you been told you have a green thumb?  

Is a garden bursting with beautiful flowers, fruits and vegetables something that just comes naturally to you?  If so, you already have many of the skills needed to successfully cultivate a small business opportunity.

Launching and growing a small business is very much like growing a garden.  The best harvest requires planning and preparation.  You must be diligent in tending to your garden regularly. You must be patient while the fruit of your labor ripens. And then you must be ready to harvest at the moment of perfection.

Choose your location

Location, location, location.  If you are going to work from home, find an area where you can set up an efficient work space.  Make it cheerful and, if possible, choose a spot with a window that supplies plenty of natural light.  Keep your space organized and clear of clutter. If you must choose a spot that is small, look for ways to maximize the space to avoid feeling cramped.  Bring in a fan to keep air moving and hang a beautiful piece of art to inspire creativity.

This is your home base. This is where you are going to grow. Make it comfortable and conducive to productivity.

Choose your crops

A good gardener begins browsing seed catalogs during the dark, cold winter months, long before planting time.  They think about what they will plant, how much they will plant and how long it will take to see results.  Do the same thing for your small business opportunity.  Take the time to think about what you want to accomplish and how long it will take.  Set specific goals and then make a list of tactics you can implement to reach them. 

Gardeners are deliberate about color schemes, types of plants and look for varieties that grow well together and complement one another.  Do the same thing with your business.  What will be your sweet spot – what is your specialty, your niche?

A gardener learns from trial and error which plants do well and which are not such a good choice.  It’s the same with your business.  Try different things. When you find something that works, repeat it.

Till the soil

Before you plant anything, prepare the environment to create the optimal growing conditions.  Make yourself a subject matter expert.  Research your niche and understand best practices and tools and materials.  Just as a gardener becomes an expert at growing a specific plant, you can educate yourself to become an expert on your niche specialty.  This might mean taking a class on a certain topic. Or it might be as simple as doing online research to learn more about a certain area. 

Just as a gardener turns over the dirt to loosen it and incorporate oxygen into it, your small business opportunity will benefit from fresh energy that you gain from opening your mind to new ideas.

This will allow you to create an environment that has ideal growing conditions.

Scatter your seeds

Look for opportunities to network in your community.  Attend events. Do volunteer work.  The key is to get involved so that you can get to know people, and they can get to know you.  

Each time you connect with someone, you have an opportunity to show an interest in what they are working on.  You have a chance to show that you care about others.  That is a seed.  

As you go along, you will have chances to share the things you are working on with your business.  All these interactions – even if they don’t always feel directly related to your core business activities – are little seeds that you are scattering. As time goes on, they will begin to sprout.  

Just like in a garden, not every single seed sprouts.  But if you are patient, you will find seeds germinating when you least expect it.  

And just like in your garden, the discovery of a new seedling is very exciting!

Fertilize and water – regularly

You have to show up every day.  Look for ways to be helpful. Share information openly and willingly. Feed your relationships. Tend to them with a note, a brief call, through social media sharing or an email.  Touch base with people periodically so you stay top of mind with them.  

Just as a garden needs to be fed and watered, so does your small business opportunity. And you must do it regularly.  

You can’t plant a garden and then walk away for an indefinite amount of time and expect it to stay alive.  It’s the same with your business.  You must tend to it consistently.</
