There are some ways to make extra income without taking on the rigors of transportation to a job-site and the conventional stresses of a job situation. These at-home positions are favored by those that need to be near home for family or other obligations, or maybe just simply tired of the traditional rat-race and daily grind. While many of these jobs are considered tele-commute positions, many candidates may require a bit more flexibility in scheduling than what these opportunities provide.

Opening an online store is a great opportunity to be your own boss.

Becoming your own boss with an online store is a great option for working from home. When individuals start a store online, one instantly achieves their own business. That is, they become their own boss, in charge of the hours that they work, and without the headaches of taking orders from supervisors or management. When consumers start their own online store, they cater to their customers and provide them with whatever goods or merchandise they choose. Whether offering low-cost handbags, high-end apparel, handcrafted articles or high-tech electronics, the decision is left up to the seller. img0104It is important to have strategies in place when setting up to open an online store.

Certainly to be successful, these business-operators need to look at some practical strategies for setting up their store. The first question might be in what exactly will be sold. Cleaning out the house might unearth an answer. Many sellers have found success in selling stuff found around their home. When the price is right, there will be a buyer for most anything found during spring cleaning.

The best advice for a new seller is to be honest about their merchandise, and to not assume that an item is worthless or doesn’t merit selling. It is quite amazing to find some of the things that people will pay good money for from online stores.

Another success strategy for those thinking about opening their own online store is to join a community of sellers. When signing up to platforms that bring multiple sellers together in one online site, the traffic and sales figures can be dramatically increased with little effort. Even without personally meeting other sellers, through cooperation among sellers customers will be referred and shared creating more traffic for your business. This benefits all involved and increases the exposure and marketing of the online store without the added costs of advertising or publicity.

Being your own boss does not have to be merely a dream. Whether you are a collector who wishes to sell off some of your finds or an artist with beautiful works that you are ready to sell, one can easily open their own online store. Simply do some research into what you would like to sell and then you will be ready to start your new life making money from home as your own boss.

Enjoy the benefits of being your own boss and never be afraid to dance!

Just about everyone knows what a LEGO brick is; the colorful block that comes in various sizes geared to get kids to use their imagination as they create. The LEGO company was started in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, but it was in 1958 that the now famous LEGO brick was patented beginning a limitless trip to the many roads of boundless creativity using the simple bricks even into the busy technological age of today.

The first Lego bricks were developed in the 1940’s

In 1949 the first plastic LEGO Automatic Binding Brick in four colors with four and eight studs was born. Packaging created to build specific LEGO play structures came in the 1950’s and by 1958 the LEGO brick was perfected into a more stable product that is what is still being sold and used today.

LEGO fans have grown up to create home decor and furnishings out of the fun bricks.

LEGO bricks have been embraced by all ages, using them to create unique furnishings and even an entire house, inside and out.

Color invites happiness so what would promote happy living more than interesting and functional decor intricately fashioned out of the simplicity of LEGO bricks.

With about 35,000 LEGO bricks the approximate 120 pound LEGO desk was created by Eric C. Harshbarger. Following a typical size desk the finished dimensions are 60 inches wide by 29.5 inches high and 30 inches deep. The colorful desk is fully functioning with seven drawers and even has a lid on top to open for a hole to accommodate cables to drop through.

Perhaps one of the core reasons that LEGO has survived through generations of fun is that the company continues to stay in the Kristiansen family and is now run by the founders grandchild. LEGO thrives simply by one using their mind to have fun thinking and improvising in order to use their hands to creatively invent and build unique LEGO designs and structures.

Never stop thinking and using imagination and never be afraid to dance!
