• I believe this is where procrastination begins, as it is difficult at times to return to the task at hand after taking a “stretch break”. The real question is how do you convince yourself to return to your task, especially in cases where the task at hand is difficult to accomplish or decipher? I am a mobile application developer and I find when conflicted with a difficult task I continually procrastinate turning hours into days and days into weeks. Later looking back at my accomplishments it can be a little unnerving. My 2 cents.

      Can you tell me about your business?

  • SAVAge in the STL

    Think of it as making money, the more productive activity that I do the closer I come to enhancing my financial sustainability. I am more productive due to this economy is putting some business on the brink of closing. I want to earn more, so I do more, I cut back on calls that are not about increasing my earning potential or earning potential.
    My 1 cent…..LOL

      What type of business do you have?

  • donna

    Hi, my job will be laying me off next year. I want to start my own business. Do any of you have any suggestions or ideas?

    • Rubberman

      You may want to take a look at what you enjoy doing. Build your idea of owning your own business around that. It takes time and patience to develop and you have more experience about your passion.
      Get your self financially prepared to be without an income for at least a year while you begin the process of developing your business, customers and vendors.
      Good Luck if this is what you want to do.


    What is your passion follow that and it should lead you in the right direction.
    If you are in sales we can talk.

    Hi Donna – when I got laid off, it took a minute to act on my desire to reinvent myself and do something more personally rewarding. After some trials and errors I was blessed with the opportunity to help people and change their lives forever. You can’t go wrong if you are affecting peoples lives in a positive way.
