Do You Wish You Could Travel and Make Money?

The more home business owners I talk with tell me that besides the money they can make the second reason they started their own home business was the freedom it gives to travel and enjoy life.That is no surprise to me, we all desire a work life balance and a home business gives you that ability. It’s also why the travel industry is an 8 trillion dollar industry and expected to double in the next 5 years.OK, so I do listen to the news and I do fill up my car periodically with gas, so I hear about the high cost of gas and how that is affecting the airline industry, travel and resort destinations. But I also heard, at least here in the West, National Parks, lake resorts and hotels in prime resort areas were full over the past two holidays. So what’s my point, people will find a way to get away and enjoy their free time no matter what the economic situation.However, in these economically challenged times people are searching out more deals than they ever have in the past. Timeshares are out of reach for the average household so the next best option is travel memberships to all those same four and five star communities. And with the drastically reduced costs that people can obtain with these memberships makes taking a vacation affordable even in today’s economy.The Global Resorts Network membership allows their members to travel anywhere in the world, stay at four and five star resorts for eight days and seven nights for less than most people would pay for a week’s groceries. This lifetime membership also offers values on cruises with all the top cruise liners.If that product wasn’t enough the business opportunity is so lucrative it has many people wondering just how they can do what they are. As a home business opportunity it is the ability to pay well and give the business owner something they are telling me they are looking for; freedom to travel…Cheap!So if travel is something you love to do or are looking to do in the future Global Resorts membership and business opportunity is a great value.

How a Web Based Employee Scheduling Software Helps Your Business Grow

Arranging schedules for any size group of employees takes a lot of time out of the busy day of any manager. If there are two or three shifts of workers to be coordinated, it is even more challenging. Tracking schedule changes for even a small workforce using paper, whiteboard or even a spreadsheet can prove to be a daunting and error prone task. Employee scheduling software can solve the problem.As any manager knows, wasting time is wasting money. Profits are negatively impacted when too many employees are on the schedule. Employees become unable to handle the volume if too few are scheduled. Additionally being understaffed will most definitely impact the quality of service that business provides to its customers. The software makes such decisions automatically or can assist the manager every step of the way.Such a program does everything a manager can do and at a speed above his or her capabilities. A database is developed to track vacation and sick days for each employee and save those records. The payroll can be calculated and prepared based on those records.Availability includes simple record keeping programs and more complicated ones that can track vacation requests, healthcare costs and manufacturing or distribution details. It facilitates easier gathering of information needed each year at tax time.Many businesses do employee evaluations and the record of each worker can be added to the database. If bonuses are given out, this is a quick way to determine who deserves what. It may also contribute to major decisions on who to promote and who to let go.Additional benefits include implementation of ways to respond to weather conditions for a business that does outdoors work, for example a lawn service or construction company. Use of company vehicles in an economical way and keeping administrative costs to a bare minimum is easily accomplished.Many employee scheduling systems have the capability to incorporate a module with mobile capabilities. During deliveries or sales calls, employees can be quickly contacted for any exchange of information or emergency. When a meeting or sales call is cancelled, this can avoid wasting time driving to the location for the meeting and all the way back to the home office without making contact.A scheduling software that integrates with company’s bookkeeping software such as QuickBooks will provide an additional bonus by automating client invoicing and employee payroll processes.Few scheduling solutions on the market also offer integrated electronic visit verification (EVV) functionality that allows employees to clock in and out when they start and end their shifts. Integrated EVV system greatly reduces the time it takes to reconcile employee time sheets and allows business to invoice their clients faster.
