Starting a Business

There are several ways you can start a business for yourself. There is a way for you to start a business that can bring in the money you want and be able to still have your home life. This might mean you are working some of the time and will make some money while you are still available to do the things your family needs. That is what makes this such a great idea. 

Starting the business can be hard because you have to add some money to your business and then you have to work hard in order to get the money coming in. There are a lot of options in getting the income from the business once you start. You can use the Internet for your sales or you can use the more traditional methods. This may include talking to people in person. 

Keeping Your Business Going

Once the business has been established, it needs to be tended to in order to keep running smoothly. This may mean you are still working the business and are still getting new customers. This can be the hardest part of the process. You will need to keep having new sales so if your other sales drop off, you have something that will keep your business going. Qnet is a great way to do this. They have products that will sell well and that will make you money that can help you keep your home looking good. Once you know what is going to sell, you can continue to make money with it.

There are a lot of businesses that can help you to make money, but you are going to have to take care of your business in order to keep things running smooth. All you need is a great product, which Qnet provides and a great selling plan. This way you can keep making money that will help you raise your family or go on trips that make life more fun.

This company cares about its employees as is evidenced by the Glassdoor reviews written by Qnet employees.

Shaygan Kheradpir named top executive of Coriant

Shaygan Kheradpir took the reins of Coriant, a telecommunications firm dedicated to serving businesses, mobile users, and metropolitan areas in September of 2015. He previously served as an executive for Barclay and Juniper services before coming to the top position at Coriant.

Kherdapir brings almost three decades of experience in the telecommunications industry to his new position. He spent many years working as Verizon’s chief information officer where he helped them grow their business model and expand 4G communications into rural areas. He also spent time with GTE.

Coriant formed from the merger of Nokia Siemens Network, Sycamore Networks and Tellabs. The company faces stiff competition from competitors who are also trying to increase access to optical networks. Large telecommunications providers, such as AT&T, have issued legal challenges to smaller companies laying the lines in areas where many small businesses exist. AT&T company has many unused lines that they have failed to exploit. Giants such as AT&T have not responded by offering their services at lower prices in these areas.

The new head of Coriant faces challenges that run deeper than those faced by larger telecommunications companies. Revenue from leasing access to optical lines decreased by 11% in 2014, a trend which continued through 2015. Kheradapir plans to use his previous experience to reduce or reverse these trends during the 2016 calendar year. He plans to do this by leveraging his sales experience to increase sales of 100G equipment to large and medium sized businesses and by continuing deployment of faster cable in metro areas and expanding mobile access.

George Soros Politico

George Soros is a legendary investor and speculator. He and Warren Buffet are the only two men who generated profits of 30% per year consistently for 30 years. He left active trading in the 1980s to pursue a second career in philanthropy. He established more than 100 Open Society Foundations in countries around the world. The goal is to promote an open society based on individual respect and trust.

Soros’ philosophy regarding his philanthropy is best summed up in his writing entitled: “My Philanthropy” “I occupy an exceptional position. My success in the financial markets has given me a greater degree of independence than most people. This obliges me to take stands on controversial issues when others cannot, and taking such positions has itself been a source of satisfaction. In short my philanthropy has made me happy. What more could I ask for? I do not feel, however, that I have any business imposing my choices on others.”
His accomplishments include writing several books, essays and commentaries on world affairs. He is a giver to liberal causes and recently has donated millions to political candidates whom he feels will advance the cause of freedom. His latest contribution is for $6 million to Hillary Clinton’s Super Pac in her bid for the Presidency of the United States. He added another $2 million making a total of $8 million.

Political candidates are now able to receive unlimited funds under a 2010 Supreme Court decision. Prior to that time we had Political Pacs but donors were limited to $2500 for the Primary and $2500 for the election making a total to $5000. In Citizens United vs. Federal Election Committee, The Supreme Court said that: “Limitations on corporations and union spending to influence elections was unconstitutional. Further, Justice Kennedy wrote: “We now conclude that independent expenditures do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption.”

Whether you agree or disagree with Super Pacs, they are a major force in political campaigns. There are Super Pacs on both sides of the political spectrum. Large sums are being donated to Republican candidates as well.

Ahead on Energy Crisis

In a recent article by The Street, some more of George Soros investment strategies were highlighted. The star investor has made decisions in the past like short selling 10 billion dollars worth of the British Pound and walking away with 1 billion dollars in profit. This event made Soros well known as the man who broke the Bank of England. Because of moves like these, George Soros is worth 24.4 billion dollars now.

His most recent move was to sell out stocks in the energy industry. Soros Fund Management sold out completely on Chesapeake Enegery, NRG Energy and Chevron. The Street then debated whether investors should follow Soros’ move or whether they should wait for more figures from companies to come out over the coming weeks. One of the main concerns is the fluctuation in oil prices. In less than 2 years, the price of a barrel of oil has dropped 73 percent to 29 dollars per barrel. This drop also effected the S&P 500, which has a third of its capital expenditures in the energy sector. This will also likely effect the American economy because the U.S. has 9 million jobs in the energy industry and losing those jobs would severely hurt the economy.

George Soros has not only seen success in the financial world, but also in the philanthropic. In 1979, Soros founded the Open Society Foundations. This foundation is now in over 100 countries and is effecting change in all of them. Soros started the foundation out by providing xerox machines to Eastern European dissident who wanted to bring down the Eastern Bloc. He also raised tuition for black students to go to university in apartheid South Africa.

Soros is now concentrating on the crisis in the European Union. His fear is that the refugee influx might destroy the principles that the E.U. was built on.

Soros got the inspiration for this charity because of his childhood. He grew up as a jew in a Nazi occupied country, Hungary. The country then changed to communism at the end of World War II. These oppressive regimes taught Soros that he wanted to spread freedom and transparency in the world to combat this sort of oppression.

In order to start putting this into action, Soros fled in 1947 and attended the London School of Economics. To get through school, Soros worked as both a railroad porter and a waiter. After graduating, he stayed in London and worked for a short period and he then moved to America were for roughly 2 decades he worked for different investment firms like Wertheim and Co.

Phoebe Buffay Style Only Starts With The Clothes


Watching Friends as a full series on Netflix made two things very clear to me. Phoebe Buffay was the best. And I want to be just like the Phoebes. I’d even take the name Phoebo. She seems so much wiser and reasonable than I recall from when it was live. Perhaps now I understand style is in the way you live. Until I can embrace my full Phoebe, I will follow her style rules as explained by Man Repeller.


  • The perfect jacket is one with full personality, and ideally fringe. Make it an A+ worthy.


  • Sleeveless dresses are meant to live with a turtleneck. Start pairing them.


  • Bright and happy designs are a must. Smiley faces, flowers, and anything that brings a smile to your face.


  • Colorful jackets are also a must. Your style is your personality, so if you are a rainbow, go full technicolor.


  • Silk slip with Dr. Martens. Very few things are this 90’s. Well, the Rachel haircut with 501 Levi jeans and a crop top is, but we are going for stinky cat singing personality here. So boots with a dress it is.


My personal #6 rule is to wear Santa pants when you are pregnant with triplets. It’s no longer the 90’s. No one will ask why. It will just be.

Always dress for yourself. A good place to start with a just as you like it attitude is JustFab, a subscription service that creates your personal boutique. Your boutique always carries handbags, shoes, denim, and jewelry that feels like it was made just for you. I follow them on Pinterest for outfit inspiration everyday!
