The Quickest Way To Start a Successful Secretarial Services Business

With the current economy, more and more people are looking for ways to add a second stream of income to their regular job or replace their job entirely.

Many people who have typing skills want to make money with at home typing and data entry work. But many are looking in the wrong places and they often fall for online typing and data entry programs. These types of programs will only pay them a commission when they sell someone else’s product as an affiliate. Don’t fall for promises of easy money. You’ll be disappointed.

One of the few ways to get legitimate typing work from home is to run a secretarial service business.

Are you wondering how to get started and how to get clients? A new guide will show you how.

Guide creator Leva Duell has been there: “I know exactly how you feel because I have been there. Fourteen years ago I bought a used computer with my credit card. Then, I had to figure out a way to pay off my credit card fast. So, I decided to provide secretarial and typing services from home. I learned as I earned and made many mistakes. This guide is the result of my experiences. I want to make it easy for you to start earning extra money quickly and bypass the mistakes I made.”

The guide covers things like:

– A step-by-step start-up checklist that will tell you exactly what steps to take and in what sequence.
– How to get clients, who your most profitable clients are and how to market to them effectively.
– Prewritten letters and postcards to promote your secretarial services.
– How to charge for your services. Get this right and you’ll be profitable. Get this wrong and you may find yourself without any clients.
– And much more…

Starting a successful secretarial services business does not have to be complex or expensive if you have a plan of action and follow it. And that is what this guide provides, from start to finish. By using this guide you can cut down the time it takes to get up and running and getting your first clients.

New research from Tesco Baby & Toddler Club reveals that entrepreneurial spirit is widespread with UK mums

More than 50 per cent of new mums are keen to set up their own business, according to new research from Tesco Baby & Toddler Club.

In fact, the survey of 2,000 mums* has revealed one in ten working mums are sick of David Brent bosses who overlooked them for promotion simply because they were a parent.

More than ten per cent of those questioned complained they’d been discriminated against at work by female colleagues (who were actually worse than men). And one in five mums had struggled with employers who demanded they work longer than their contracted hours.

The research carried out by Tesco Baby & Toddler Club to mark the launch of its new website suggests the current one million women-owned businesses in the UK** is set to increase – and six per cent of those questioned claim to already have enterprising ideas ranging from hand-painted cribs to pet hotels.

The research also revealed that 20 per cent wanted to be work at home mums because of the flexible hours. The mums were especially internet savvy, and with the end of the extended family and 24 hour access to websites, 40 per cent said they turn to the internet for help on baby/parenting matters. This compares with just 34 per cent talking to their doctor, 29 per cent turning to other parents and one in five seeking advice from their local health centre.

A spokesperson for Tesco Baby & Toddler Club said: “While we know from official figures that the percentage of working mums has increased over the last five years***, it seems we’re not so keen to work for someone else when it comes to the practicalities of winning the work/life balance.

“It’s in direct response to the demand for mums seeking parenting help and support online that Tesco have launched the baby club website offering advice from some of the country’s leading baby experts, plus the opportunity for mums to talk to other mums, including work-related experiences.

“We know from our own members that being able to talk to other mums in similar situations can give them the confidence to make changes that are right for them.” The survey also revealed that when it comes to role models, the top 10 working mums are:

1. Davina McCall 6. Tana Ramsey
2. Fern Britton 7. Melinda Messenger
3. Jordan 8. Dr. Tania Byron
4. JK Rowling 9. Victoria Beckham
5. Jools Oliver 10. Angelina Jolie

* Created by Tesco Baby & Toddler Club, Mums’ Choice is an independent panel of over 4,000 parents nationwide to harness their expertise and give other parents advice on products and emotional issues.

Tesco Baby & Toddler Club is the longest running retailer Club for pregnant women and parents of children under the age of three. Over 350,000 members are proof of its popularity – and this number is increasing daily as more expectant mums and new parents join Baby & Toddler Club for expert advice on child health, baby recipes and baby tips in the website forum.

Nutraceutical home business opportunity called Zrii

William Farley, Chairman and Owner of Farley Industries based in Chicago, IL and former CEO of Fruit of the Loom, bought his first company, Anaheim Citrus Products, in 1976. In 1977, he acquired Baumfolder, a subsidiary of Bell & Howell. Farley also became a part owner of the Chicago White Sox in 1976.

Mr. Farley has launched a new Nutraceutical home business opportunity called Zrii™; which can be viewed at ManifestCashNow.com. Bill Farley has been associated with the Chopra Center for Wellbeing for many years and it all started when an ancient secret was passed on to Mr. Farley. The ancient secret found in the Zrii™ super tonic is Amalaki and the Chopra Center for Wellbeing wholeheartedly endorses Zrii™.

Amalaki (emblica officinalis) grows at the base of the pristine Himalayan mountain range in northern India. In its pantheon of thousands of fruits and herbs, Ayurveda describes amalaki as the single most important botanical for promoting cellular rejuvenation, immune function, and increased vitality.

Simply stated, Amalaki has one of the richest and most documented legacies of any fruit known today. In fact, Amalaki has been revered as the “Nurse”, the “Great Rejuvenator”, and the “Fruit of Immortality” for centuries, due to its numerous healing properties and its ability to nourish the body on all levels. This little fruit even has its own holiday in which families share a meal under the tree, while giving thanks for the strength and luster promoted by the fruit.

In tasting Zrii™, the purity of the Amalaki, and 6 supporting active ingredients comes through in the vibrancy of the taste. The ability for a food or drink to “enliven the tongue” is a hallmark of Ayurveda’s use of food for healing. In combining the Amalaki with anti-oxidant-rich juices such as pomegranate, grape, cranberry, and raspberry juice, the resulting blend is delicious, with a nutritional complexity that offers a wholly unique and exciting flavor.

More details on the Zrii™ home business opportunity can be found here: http://www.ManifestCashNow.com

Chad William Hershey of http://www.ChadHersheysBlog.com is founder of his own home based business, The Pinnacle Group. He is a student and mentor of the Universal Law of Attraction, as seen in The Secret, and believes fully in The Master Key System. Chad shares his passion and knowledge of being in the home based business arena for the last 15 years and enjoys helping others succeed with Internet marketing.
