Evaluate and adjust. Once you have a clear idea about your target audience and who your ideal clients are, as well as how your products/services are going to help them, you must evaluate and make adjustments when necessary. Determine if there are really enough people in your target market to sustain your business model. Ask yourself this: Are there enough people out there who need what I am offering? Will these people get tremendous value from what I’m offering? Will these people pay the price that I am asking? Can they afford it? How will I get access to the people who most need what I have to sell? After you’ve have thoroughly answered these questions, make changes if needed.
If it is a large boat, mattress, toy etc. this method of Air Leak Detection may not be quite comfortable. In such cases, wet your arms with water and slowly move along through the surface of the mattress or whatever it is. Where there is a hole and the air is leaking through, you can feel the coolness created by this air. Thus you can easily pinpoint the area.
Make sure any belts on the furnace motor are in good shape. Be sure to have an extra on hand in case of breakage and replace them on a regular basis to avoid a break. Make sure the motor is properly oiled according to your owner’s manual.
That is not to say that paintball is the only hobby men enjoy. A good RC helicopter is a real treat for most men. Unlike kids toys, the electric RC helicopters that men collect tend to be advanced and perform exceptionally well at any task thrown at them. Anyone who gives a remote control helicopter to a man as a gift will reap the rewards when they see the smile on his face. Remote control helicopters are sold to men on a regular basis and vary in style and price.
Ensure all areas including the dining room are clutter free (see Day 5 point #2) and that kids’ toys are All out of sight and in their toy room or bedroom.
Music – Bring a battery-powered CD player for night time. The sounds of nature are beautiful but if you aren’t used to them they can be scary. Soothing music will help mask all the sounds that might scare or wake-up the kids.
MLS. You may be asking why the Multiple Listing Service is number eight on the list. Besides the fact that it is the most used tool for selling a house, it is also the most expensive. All too often I watch homeowners list their home with an agent who has no intention of doing anything besides pulling two local comps (similar homes that have sold in your area) and taking a few pictures for your listing. If you decide to hire a real estate agent to list your home on the MLS, make sure you interview them and ask them what strategies they’ll be using to sell your house quickly. A good agent can be your best friend, but make sure that they’re well connected, they have a good track record, and that they have some creative ideas for getting a quick sale.
Besides Wal-Mart’s website you can also find deals inside the actual store for your kids this Christmas. To find the cheapest gifts for your toddlers, check out the aisles in Wal-Mart. Often times their best and lowest priced gifts are on one of the main displays.
Fabrics are definitely the way to achieve this look. Start with the window, because most people don’t pay enough attention to dressing this area of the room but it is the key to adding a touch of luxury. Instead of going for blinds or curtains that only drop as far as the windowsill, treat yourself to some full length, full bodied curtains and choose a fabric such as silk which will add further to the look. Dress the bed in layers, so the duvet could have a shiny feel, draped on top with a soft throw. You might even want to hold some of the fabric back from the curtains as a runner to complete the look.
Many homeowners in northern areas use wood burning stoves to supplement their heating requirements. Burning wood generates dust that will collect in the primary heating system filters. Insure that you check or replace the filters regularly. The chimney and stove pipe should be cleaned at least twice during the heating season to avoid chimney fires and optimum efficiency of your wood burning stove.
How many kids do you know today who could or would even attempt to sit down and play with a Rubix Cube? If you live in the real world you might even find some kids would not even recognise the name of that toy, let alone have the ability to use it. This is what we mean when we say the youth is being ruined. Sure, they are going to come in handy if the world continues to progress and evolve into a fully computerised mechanism, but if not, the kids will be clueless.
Do your research. Find out who needs what you have to offer. Look for common characteristics of the group of people you are best suited to serve. This will help you to define who your target market is. Remember your target market can be broad but your ideal client profile should be narrow. For example if you sell kids toys your target market is people with children. You can get more specific about your ideal clients by creating a niche. For example, if you sell kids toys that are made with recycled products your ideal clients are people who are interested in green living and sustainability. If you arrive at this type of clarity you have created your niche.
Puzzles – This is an all time favorite among kids. Puzzles need a child to put together different pieces in order to form the whole picture. Once a child starts building the puzzle, his or her curiosity level increases and they have a tendency to not leave the piece until they have finished with it. Apart from sharpening their mental abilities, the game also facilitates their intellectual development.
They say you can drown in a teaspoon of water. Now, I don’t believe that myself but if you could you would see the teaspoon of water coming and avoid it. Little problems are similar to that teaspoon of water. By its self it seems harmless but when you have enough of them to fill a five gallon bucket it would be possible to drown in that much.
