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

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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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

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
Tip #1: Set financial
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
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
Tip #3: Keep your
workspace in order.
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.
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

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

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
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! Get started today.

Whether it’s to fund a family vacation, buy a new car or
simply to add a bit of cushion to the household budget, there are many reasons why
people begin seeking extra
income ideas. No matter what the reason behind it, one universal truth
holds true: Kaeser & Blair Promotional
Products offers one of the best extra income ideas around today. Why?
It’s simple. Kaeser & Blair
offers its business owners profits and reputation beyond compare in an
exciting, fast-paced industry that virtually anyone can get involved in!
The profits are among what make Kaeser & Blair one of
the foremost extra income ideas. This is
due to the fact that K&B firmly believes in rewarding its business owners
for their individual success by offering a generous split of the profits,
substantial bonuses for top performers and an incredibly lucrative business
owner referral program. Even someone
working only part-time can earn up to $20,000 annually with Kaeser & Blair. Those who choose to pursue the opportunity full-time
have the ability to earn up to $185,000.
It truly is one of the best extra income ideas today!
K&B also understands that in order to be successful,
incentives need to be in place to encourage that success, which is why in 2012
alone they awarded over $350,000 in bonuses to business owners. They value
their business owners and the hard work that they do, so they award top
performers generous bonuses based on annual sales volume. In addition to bonuses, the top industry
performers get the chance to go to the Sales Leader Summit—a three-day,
all-expense-paid event held at a US resort, where business owners have the
chance to network and increase their visibility within the industry.
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.
Through a referral, the existing business owner can earn a
portion of the new business owner’s profits that would otherwise be designated
for Kaeser & Blair. It’s a great
system, encouraging Kaeser & Blair business owners to get excited about
their promotional products careers. K&B recognizes the importance of
“spreading the good news,” and rewards accordingly. These earnings are on top of the already
industry-leading profits and bonuses.
And the reputation of Kaeser & Blair cannot be rivaled. K&B is a company that can say what many can’t – that they’ve been in continuous operation for over 120 years. This demonstrates the stability of the model they’ve created and spent time delicately molding over the years.

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
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
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
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

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.

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.

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. Kaeser
& Blair is consistently ranked in the top 1 percent of industry
distributorships, and has the largest number of independent dealerships in the
industry. As a family-owned business
that has been in continuous operation for over a century, Kaeser & Blair’s
reputation in the industry and with vendors is rivaled by few.
So what are you waiting for? Get started with Kaeser
& Blair, one of the top direct sales companies, today!

Many companies that once required an employee’s regular
presence in an office are doing a 180 and adopting more flexible

often allow employees to fulfill their daily duties from the comfort of their
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
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

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.

The flexibility afforded to its business owners make the

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
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

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.
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
with near universal appeal. This ensures
that a demand is always there and finding new clients will not be an issue.
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.
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.
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

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.
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
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.
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

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

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
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
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.

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
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
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.
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

Promotional products can be found everywhere, as they have
long been considered one of the most effective forms of marketing. They come in the form of pens, t-shirts, mugs
or even useful tech products such as flash drives, and are highly utilized
across industries due to their diversity and impact. The constant demand for these forms of
promotional advertising makes starting a career in this industry one of the
best small business ideas,
and Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products is just the company to help you do
so for a variety of reasons.

of time, or an office or base from which to work and run the business, becoming

their schedules as need be. They have
the opportunity to work from home, an office, a coffee shop, or wherever else they

K&B business owners are in complete control of their
workweek, allowing them to create their own schedules and ultimately work the
amount they choose. They can work part
time or full time, and on weekdays or weekends – as much as they want and on
days that fit best in their schedule. This allows them to easily bring one of the
best small business ideas to life and seamlessly weave it into their busy
Another key aspect that makes the opportunity with Kaeser
& Blair one of the best small business ideas around is the income
potential. Business owners with Kaeser

in the industry – up to $20,000 per year part time, or as much as $180,000 full

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
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
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.

The field of direct sales is becoming increasingly popular
today, with more and more men seeking either additional income or a complete

mugs to t-shirts and ball caps, the products that K&B business owners sell

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
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
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
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
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

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
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
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
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.
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

A Product that is in Constant Demand
Demand is a great driver for many to start an advertising specialties business with Kaeser & Blair. When starting a business of any kind, it’s important to take into consideration the demand for the product(s) or service(s) that you are selling. The promotional products industry is a $21.5 billion industry, and one that continues to expand at a steady rate. Companies of every size use promotional products to promote their brand or reward employees, and when you start an advertising specialties business, you can tap into this demand and use it to your benefit. When you start an advertising specialties business with Kaeser & Blair, you can rest assured that the demand for your product will remain long into the future.
Independence and Flexibility
Another driving force behind many who start an advertising specialties business with K&B is the flexible schedule. When you start your advertising specialties business, you are your own boss. You are in complete control of your schedule and you decide how much or how little you want to work. You schedule meetings at your convenience, and you answer to no one but yourself and your clients. You get the clients, take the orders, and we do the rest.
Additionally, unlike other opportunities, with Kaeser & Blair, there is no recruiting, no delivery and no inventory to maintain, allowing you to work from virtually anywhere that you want to call your office. You simply get the orders and K&B does the rest. We take your order, process your order, factory-produce and ship products to customers, and handle customer billing and payment collection.
Earning and Career Potential

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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]

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.
