Work from Home May Stick with Us

No Need for Expensive Office Space

If you win a Home Business Award, it likely means that you are making a difference in your community while also being a home business acheiver. Home Business Achievers is a place where HBA from every walk of life join to focus on developing and running a home business. This is a circumstance of the Pandemic that is one of the perks about staying indoors all the time: you don’t need expensive office space or other gear.

No Expensive Office Needed

For me it used to mean that starting a new business required having decent office space to prove to your clients or future customers that you were a professional to be trusted. Now with COVID-19, Remote Working has become the norm from entrepreneurship to the corporate elite.

Now All You Need is to Solve a Problem

Can you think of a problem that the audience you with to target has? Much like finding undervalued companies when investing in stocks, to succeed you must figure out a very real problem that your target demographic either has or do not yet know that they have. Once finding such a problem to be solved, chances are you figured out this problem by solving a problem in your own business life. Now from the comfort of your own home with just a laptop and a dream, you can make your home business achievers dream a reality! And maybe even win a Home Business Award!

Yianni Stamas on Technology

Yianni Stamas, a creative strategies consultant from USA Make a Difference, talks about how digital online technologies can help make a difference in the lives of Americans.

HOME BUSINESS AWARDS

So what is “digital” and how will it help a country in chaos?

STAMAS

Just as COVID-19 is spreading like wildfire, Digital Transformation is overtaking our country also. The difference between the two is that the latter can be a force for good and can help us work together to create a prosperous country. We live in an information economy and as digital content continues to grow as a tools for individuals, small businesses, nonprofits and startups, the future appears brighter.

HOME BUSINESS AWARDS

How are you using digital technology?

STAMAS

We started a website called USA Make a Difference as a cry out to the United States of America to come together for the common good through the use of technology. The message of USA Make a Difference is simple, we aim to empower those in need of more knowledge and help in the digital sector.

HOME BUSINESS AWARDS

Some of our readers are unclear as to the role that the Home Business Awards will play in this Digital Transformation.

STAMAS
As you know Home Business Awards has been chosen along with other awards shows, to partcipate in an outreach campaign for the “U.S. Make a Difference” Awards. You’ll note that USA Make a Difference is the organization and U.S. Make a Difference is the awards component.

As Nominations Pour in for HBAs, We are Taking a Look at What People’s Desks Reflect

You Have Made a Difference

Not a lot of time until the Home Business Awards. Have you been nominated for one? If so, worry not, You are someone who others consider to have made a difference in her community.

Can a Desk Be a Window into Who You Are?

It really is quite an honor. We know how hard you have worked. One thing we have done for fun is have nominees submit what their desk looks like. It is really out of curiosity. For example, the desk above is quite neat while others we have seen are not.

What Does Your Desk Look Like?

For the record, I personally do not use a desk much. I am writing this cross-legged with my laptop in front of me. What does your desk look like? Does it reflect who you are?

Biting Off More Than You Can Chew

What is Vital?

A pretty straight forward phrase. It’s something you don’t want to do. Or do you? Technically when you bite off more than you can chew means taking on too much. But truth be told, you being uncomfortable in the process is sometimes vital.

Where Does “Inspiration” Come From?

For me this is the writing a novel in the face of everything else I have to do: working on other projects and most importantly, keeping my clients happy. Some of us stare at the screen for long periods of time before getting inspiration, or not being moved to type.

Push Yourself

Just start typing. Even if you think you’ve bitten of more than you can chew, just starting to type is what is most important. Today you may hate what you have written, but tomorrow you might like it. So yes, please bite off more than you can chew.

Ready or Not Here We Come!

Already people are asking me “What is the Home Business Awards?” To which I reply “It is an awards show that recognizes home business owners not only for their success but also for the way that they make a difference in their online and offline communities.”

Then they say they had heard that the awards work in tandem with other Home Marketing websites. To which I respond that, that information is correct and that the sites in addition to us are Home Business Digital and Home Business eLearning. And I throw in that the three of us are managed by yet another Home Business web presence which is Home Business Achievers.

And then I manage to get myself onto the other side of the person making my way to the stage curtain which I slip through so I face the audience as I shout out “Ready or not here we come!”
