Be here and happy

A happy place

Moving to Bhutan does funny things for one’s happiness. Increasingly famous for developing the concept of Gross National Happiness, Bhutan is the first country many people think of when asked to name the happiest place on earth. This has even led the Tourism Council of Bhutan to adopt the slogan, “Happiness is a Place”. Happiness is much more than a place, but indeed, Bhutan has been a great place for me to learn about my own happiness.

People often ask me if I am happier here, and whether those around me are truly the happiest people in the world. The answers to such questions are at first complicated, and eventually simple. People here are not in a race to be happier or happiest. I was amazed to learn recently that the happiness of an individual is 50%…

Why Food Is Beyond “Good” and “Evil”

This is so true…

Orange-JuiceRecently, in response to a comment I made about the calories in fruit juice, a friend said to me that fruit juice is “evil.” I am a philosopher who does a lot of ethics. So “evil” means something quite severe to me. Hitler and Pol Pot were evil.  Fruit juice, not so much.

I checked back with my friend. No, he didn’t mean it was literally evil. Just that it’s as bad as a can of Coke.  Still pretty bad, if not downright evil. It’s a “sometimes” food, not an everyday food. Other anti-juice people jumped in to clarify further. Juice is really, really bad FOR you. Harley Pasternak demonized it the other day in his talk too.  He said that a cup and half of OJ has 240 calories. That’s not quite right, since a cup has 112 calories.

But I don’t want to quibble about orange juice in…

In this hard economy, a lot of companies take advantage of hiring freelancers and online workers for their respective businesses.  This in turn has become an advantage to us, the house moms who want to earn a buck or two while not risking the quality of time we spend with our families.  Freelance jobs and web opportunities are no longer as scarce as before, and all you have to decide on is what kind of job you will venture on.

Here are some of the jobs and online opportunities that you can find over the internet:

  1. Tutors/Teachers – Put your motherly tutoring skills into work by applying to online tutoring jobs. From Basic Mathematics skills to Intermediate English Writing, it all depends on what you think you’re good at.
  2. Social Media Management and Marketing
  3. CAPTCHA Insanity

    Data Encoding/Captcha – The salary for this job isn’t much as compared to the others, but it is one of the most flexible jobs in the internet.  If you want to earn a buck or two while the kids are sleeping, consider taking this job.  There are lots of Captcha Encoding sites to choose from, search the web for the ones that are known to be certified paying Captcha Encoding sites.

  4. Article Writing
  5. Email Marketing
  6. Medical Transcriptionists – In this job, you have to transcribe reports that are recorded by physicians and other medical professionals into writing.  Take advantage of these if you have good hearing and precision to detail.  You don’t have to worry though, there are some who provide training first before they let you do the work.
  7. Order Processing
  8. Translator – Are you good in other languages like French, Spanish or Mandarin? Make a profit from your skills and get a translating job in the internet.  From voice recordings to article translation, you name it, the job is readily available on the net.
  9. Audio Transcription

10. Web Maintenance – Take advantage of this kind of work if you have a background in maintaining internet websites.  If you are that kind of mom that is knowledgeable in maintaining a website, this may become one of your most profitable sources of income.

11. Link-building

12. Tech Support – Computer savvy?  There are lots of companies that offer part time online tech support jobs that provide you with the flexibility of working 3-5 hours a day.  Some 24/7 companies even offer tech support positions at night, a perfect opportunity that you may wish to grab on too.

13. Answering Surveys

14. Call Center Representatives – there are basically three types of representatives in this field: Inbound (customer service), Outbound (sales) and Chat Support.

15. Copywriting – Some small businesses look up freelance copywriters in hopes of boosting their sales up a notch.  If you are good at making articles that promote a product, copywriting jobs are the ones for you.

16. Scriptwriting

17. PTC – Pay to click ads are easy to do: just go to a certified paying PTC site, register, and start clicking ads!  Like captcha encoding, however, this is not exactly as lucrative as the others, so if you are only looking for a couple of extra bucks every month, you may do this on the side.

18. Administrative jobs

19. Proofreading – There are many people, authors and students alike that look for people who can proofread their work.  If you like reading a lot, and wouldn’t mind correcting a couple of grammatical and spelling errors, apply for this kind of job.

20. Blogging – This is one of the most lucrative jobs on the net.  Talk about anything under the sun that strikes your fancy, although it’s always best to pick a certain genre to get a specific audience.

21. Franchise ownership

22. Voice Talent – Do you have a voice to brag? Get hired as a voice talent!  This is included in this list because it’s a freelance job that you can do any hour of the day, so long as it’s quiet and you have got a good microphone or headset.  Once you get hired as one, you only have to record your voice and send it to your client in an MP3 format.

23.

You Tube– Fond of making videos?  Consider becoming a you tube product critic.  It’s just like making blogs, but in video form.  A lot of bloggers venture into this kind of media, due to its popular use.

24. Email Response – Businessmen are “busy men”, and a lot of them need help in their daily activities. Email Response handling is one of these.  Answer their emails, do whatever they want you to do about the rest of it and get paid by the hour.

25. Virtual Assistance

Though it is true that there are lots of web opportunities that you can take advantage of, you must never forget to be wary of the scammers that pretend to offer work as well.  Remember, if the job asks for your credit card or wants you to pay for anything, it is most likely a scamming plot.  Do some research; know which freelance job sites are legit, and good luck in your future home-based occupation!

Why Copywriting Services are Better than Freelancers

The benefits of copywriting services include the ability to further your brand, drive traffic, and increase visibility through SEO efforts. Once your business has decided to use this powerful promotional medium, the next decision is whether to use a copywriting services company or to enlist the help of a freelance agent.

The current market trend supports hiring an outside copywriting services company to ensure professional and effective communications that drive results. It used to be more cost-effective for companies to maintain a team whose sole purpose was to handle promotions rather than enlist the help of a pricy PR firm. Nowadays, though, it’s usually less expensive to hire a company specializing in copywriting services than to maintain a full-time staff of content writers.

All companies out there, regardless of how much revenue is generated are looking for ways to cut costs. In a down economy when sales aren’t always…
