I want to establish my non profit entity to provide technology training to individuals with disabilities. While this is my passion, I don't have a client base and I know it takes time to receive your status as a 501 c 3. I am not sure of what steps to take. Help!

I have for some time been studying the conversations on some of the social networks I belong to and have noticed the buzz about building relationships first when you are joining these social media for business.
That is so true and great advice yet what I see is that some people do not stop to think about whether their relationship building is ethical and with the proper etiquette.
So my question is – How far will you go to build a relationship to benefit your… Continue

He was tall, barely tan and at forty-five, his thick wavy hair already gleamed like new chrome. Old Spice tickled my nose when he held me close; it is still the sexiest scent I know. Even then my parents weren’t particularly fond of me. I was the source of their mutual resentment, the “accident” that forced them into violent union. But, until that moment, I’d felt safe; until that moment, I was his Mike and I knew my uncle loved me.
I’d been to the doctor that afternoon. Of course, I… Continue

The Problem: Slow eBook Sales
When I first started self-publishing and creating eBooks, I was all mixed up. I wanted to sell what I wanted to sell, whether people wanted to buy it or not *lol*. My hubby had a lot more experience in the retail industry than I did, so he kept telling me, “You can’t sell that one LaShanda, you have to sell the one that People Want to buy.” Being the stubborn gal that I can sometimes be, I stuck to my guns and pitched the Books I wanted to… Continue

You know I am all about empowerment. Proctor & Gamble is now hosting a "My Black is Beautiful" campaign. The same titled show will run on BET on several dates. There is also a national tour, media dates and events.
Come on sistas, go to the following address and tell them why your Black is beautiful. Or, you can simply forward this email on to another sister, telling them why your Black is beautiful, in 1,400 words or less. To get the ball rolling, I have… Continue

Hi all. I recently received a question from one of the members of SweetBizTips.com wanting to know why they weren't receiving visitors to their flashy new company site. This is a problem most small business owners have when they decide to create a website to market their products/services. It's one thing to have a well designed, extremely advanced website but getting the people to actually visit is a task within it self. To answer this members question I decide to make a video giving one of my… Continue

Brad Sugars: Startup Basics
More publicity. Less competition. Talent waiting to be scooped up. Here's why starting in a recessed economy may give your business a better shot.
How about 10?
Regardless of what people around you (including the media) may say, right now is the best time to get into business. Just go back and look at the economic slowdowns throughout history. Most recessions in the post-World War II era last an average of 10 months, followed by growth… Continue

My search for a home business began about 8 years ago when I was pregnant with my little girl, kiki. I was always coming across advertisements that said "Work From Home", "Be Your Own Boss". I started thinking how great it would be to be able to stay home full time with my children and make money too.
I began investing in some of the companies I came across and just to give you a heads up, never pay for information about a company. The only time you should be paying anything is when… Continue

What you cannot control (Part 1)
1. First you want to start by finding all the errors in your file. This means that you will have to have a CURRENT COPY of your file. Your file changes daily and you should NOT dispute off an old file. This is why having a monitoring service is so important.
2. Write them down on a sheet of paper or type them up.
3. Dispute each account with the Credit Bureaus and wait for them to respond.
4. Keep records of all your… Continue

This post addresses the biggest problem I had in the beginning capturing and handling my target audience as a legal marketer. It is natural, normal and expected to receive questions from serious prospects. Serious prospects want to know about you, your services and your offerings. They expect details written out so they may analyze if what they are receiving is worth the cost. This is something everyone would expect. Early on I provided a list of services on my… Continue
