Summer has come and gone, and we are faced with another school year.Â Work at Home parents may be finding themselves with a little breathing room for the first time in months. If you’re anything like me, you work A LOT LESS in the summer.
So when the kiddies head back to school, the work at home group head for their desks.Â They have more hours to work per day and they are all over it like white-on-rice!Â Hopefully, they won’t forget to fit some education into their day as well.
The Work at Home “world” including the Internet, social networking and “warm market” networking are always changing.
What worked today may be “old hat” tomorrow.
The “hang-outs” change (Do you still use MySpace? Thought not!)
The rules change…this includes how Google searches for your information and even what you can and cannot do on a social networking sites.
New widgets and plug-in’s for your blog are created everyday.
How the heck can you keep up with it all?
Is there anyone you have run into on the Internet who seems to experiment a lot ?
You know the one’s….they are always trying new products and checking out new marketing programs and social networking sites.
They experiment with different affiliate programs.
These people will become a wealth of information.
Subscribe to their blog…..learn!
Become a patron of your local library if you aren’t already. Try to read a little bit everyday!
What to read? What are the latest books on the market in your area of expertise or business in general?
What business person, actor, musician, etc…do you admire? Do they have an Auto-biography or biography written about them? Some of my favorite books have been biographies and auto-biographies!
FYI- Before buying a book yourself, borrow it.Â Not only can you borrow books for free, but if your library doesn’t have a book you want, they can often borrow it from another library.Â Â Â If it’s a great book and available at your library, you don’t necessarily have to buy it.Â If it is a great book and NOT readily available when needed, you may want to consider purchasing it.
Blogging groups , work at home groups and even groups that meet in person are all great places to connect.
Face-to-face networking is NOT dead. In fact, there are thousands of people right in your area that are not computer savvy and would never find you if you relied solely on the Internet!Â Check out Meet-up.com and see what groups may be in your area.Â If there isn’t one, be the first to create one.Â Look for tweet-up’s in your area, too.
The Official Google Blog- tons of useful information
The Facebook blog- your best bet if you are trying to keep up with the ever-changing Facebook
The Twitter blog- Even Twitter has an information site!
Speaking of Facebook, Twitter and all that jazz……who wants to connect?
