We’re in the middle of a renovation! Please join Eydie’s Office at the new blog site:
See you there!
Have you ever wished for the time to work ON your business? I wish for it every day!
This holiday season I actually gave myself a HUGE gift! I gave myself two weeks off to work ON my business. WOW… what a great gift!
My plan is to write a my new e-book, work on a one-sheet and bio for Speakers Network and get ready for my Internet Radio Show interview on Speakers Network! So far I’ve got half my ebook completed and I’ve been off for one week! Christmas held me up somewhat so I am hoping to get some more full days without interruptions to finish up!
Having this time to work on my business has been great. It’s given me the opportunity to redefine where I want my business to go and how I am going to get there. I may just schedule in 2 days every month where all I do is work on business building and furthering my success.
My suggestion to everyone is to make some time in your schedule for your business. If YOU don’t work on it then who will? No one believes in you and your business more than you do. You are the one with the vested interest in it. Don’t let your business become stagnent and weak. Keep it strong by giving it a new look or added features. Always continue to work on growth – learn new techniques, become more visible and open your mind to new goals and visions.
Happy New Year!
Creating strong passwords is important to secure your personal and financial property. But what makes a strong password?
To ensure you have a password which can protect your high and medium security sites, make it lengthy. Eight or more characters are suggested. With each character you add you create a stronger barrier around your sensitive materials.
Mix your password with lower case and upper case letters along with numbers. Some sites now allow you to use the space bar and other characters such as the # or $ sign as well as the underscore key.
In addition, don’t use your name, birth date or other personal information as your password. Even spelling your name backwards can be easy to crack. Try to use different passwords, don’t use just one or two. Changing your passwords from time to time helps to keep hackers at bay!
Lastly, don’t reveal your passwords to anyone and if you have to write them down, keep them in a central, yet safe location where kids, co-workers and others can’t access them. Never provide your password to unknowns over the internet and never use your password on a public computer such as at the library, internet café, computer labs or other shared computer systems. Keystroke logging devices are inexpensively purchased by hackers and allow them to gather log-in information from shared systems.
To learn if your passwords are secure, use the Password Checker. http://www.microsoft.com/protect/yourself/password/create.mspx
Password Checker is a “non-recording” feature which Microsoft offers to help determine your password’s strength as you type”.
Is life in the wireless zone lowering your libido? Are your children jealous of the time you spend with your PDA? Step away from the BlackBerry – at least every once in a while.
By Joey Reiman
1. Thou shalt not take the BlackBerry to any table with food on it or family around it. A BlackBerry is not a fruit, nor does it come from a tree.
2. Thou shalt not use the BlackBerry as reading material in the event of insomnia. It will only worsen your situation.
3. Thou shalt not BlackBerry in lieu of responding to a child’s request (e.g., “Wait a second, I’m reading something.”).
4. Thou shalt not place the BlackBerry within distance of hearing its incessant beeps while at home. It is not a bird.
5. Thou shalt not check BlackBerry as if it were your baby. It will not cry or stop breathing.
6. Thou shalt not confuse number of e-mails with self-worth.
7. Thou shalt do everything possible to misplace your BlackBerry on weekends. “There’s No Place Like Home” will never be the tagline for the BlackBerry company.
8. Thou shalt remember that a BlackBerry is not a body appendage. It is a device that belongs in your briefcase, on your desk and not in social settings.
9. Thou shalt refrain from bringing the BlackBerry to events involving family interaction. Extraneous dialogue with this contraption in lieu of real conversation suggests addiction.
10. Thou shalt never, ever, ever bring the BlackBerry to bed. Do this and you are BlackBuried
