Free Debt Relief Grant Money – Let Uncle Sam Pay Your Bills

February 21, 2023 Category :Telemarketing Off

Have you ever wished that someone would come along and pay off all of the debts that have been smothering you? Well the US government will. Personal debt relief grants are becoming widely popular amongst American citizens who are currently buckling under the overwhelming pressures of exorbitant personal debt. Government financial assistance is rapidly becoming the preferred method of debt relief in our nation today.

It is a fact that millions of qualifying American taxpayers may be able acquire enough free government money to completely repay all past dues rents, mortgages, car payments, credit card payments and more, by applying for government funded personal debt relief grants. In most cases, at the very least, you can be awarded generous sums of free money to do this. In the most extraordinary of situations, you may qualify to receive several different government grants. In such an instance, the government may very well pay your past due bills in full if you have properly followed the grant writing procedures, submitted all necessary documents, completed the government grant application, and have been approved by the appropriate grant awarding committee.

Though each individual situation requires individual attention, producing individual results, there are very few American taxpayers over the age of eighteen years old who are disqualified from receiving at least some small amount of free government money to aid in their personal debt relief issues. In most cases, government debt grants are quite generous, and it is not at all uncommon for any individual to be found eligible to receive more than one. This type of financial assistance can be a detrimental tool used to prevent the ultimately dreaded, yet more commonly applied last resort, bankruptcy.

In these times of recession and poor economy, there is little else that many struggling American taxpayers can do besides file for bankruptcy, foreclose on their homes, or default on their credit cards. Government debt grants for personal debt relief may be able to help thousands of Americans, like you and I, to overcome the financial burdens that are commonly suffered today. The government will give you money, you just have to ask for it.

Tips for the beginner Gardener

Not all Garden flowers are created equal there are some easy grow easy care flowers that go above and beyond the call of duty, that bloom for months at a stretch. Every sensible Gardener should try to make these types of flowers the foundation of his/her flower garden. When you have areas of color you can rely on each season, you have extra time to invest in feature or specimen flowers that often require more specialized attention. Here are some tried and tested long blooming flowers for your home flower garden.

Rudbeckia (some times referred to as Black-eyed Susan) Perennial Flowers

USDA Zones: 3 – 9 – Bloom Span: 3 Months mid Summer- Mid Fall
Full Sun-Partial Shade
Rudbeckia flowers make themselves at home anywhere and many are native to many parts of North America you often see their bright yellow flowers growing along the banks of highway ditches. These flowers like well-drained, somewhat poor soil and full sun. Deadheading will extend their blooming period, a bonus is the fact that cut Rudbeckia flowers will last a long time in water so make excellent cutting flowers for the cutting garden and to bring into your home for vase displays. Their flowers are attractive to butterflies and bees and their seeds can be eaten by birds during the winter months. They are relatively long lived plants that require very little maintenance and are true easy care flowers, Rudbeckias can be easily multiplied by division. There are many varieties of hybridized Rudbeckia flowers but my favorite and most hardy is Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Goldsturm”, which are native North American wild flowers. Plants form upright bushy clumps offering a very generous display of brown-eyed, golden-orange daisies from midsummer through the fall. Plants may be easily divided in early spring and transplanted to other garden areas where their bright cheery flowers may add color to a more dreary spot

Veronica spicata (Spike Speedwell) Perennial Flowers

USDA Zones 3 – 9 – Bloom Span: 3-4 Months
These flowers start blooming in the spring and keep going all the way to the first frost. The genus speedwell includes a broad range of flowering plants, but Veronica. spicata is the most popular form chosen for most garden environments. It forms a low growing dense mass of dark green foliage from which arise its flowers in narrow upright spikes, many varieties are available bearing flowers in shades of blues, reds, pinks, whites and purples. Removing the faded flower spikes will keep the plants flowers in blossom for much longer. Drought tolerant, Veronica prefers a well-drained soil, excellent for cutting; the flowers are a favorite with butterflies. Clumps should be pruned hard if they get floppy and divided if they become bald in the center; time to divide these flowers is in the fall or early spring.
My favorite- Veronica ‘Sunny Border Blue’

Nigella (Love-in-a-Mist/or sometimes love in a puff) Annual Flowers

The Nigella flowers are delicate, feathery, often blue-flowers but can be obtained in shades of pink, purple and white, an annual, displaying delicate fern like foliage and attractive unusual eye-catching seedpods. They self-seed readily and to my mind this feature along with their incredibible beauty is why these flowers deserve inclusion as an easy care low maintenance flowers .They Come into bloom very quickly, if successive sowings are made every two or three weeks in the summer months by saving some of the previous years seed rather than allowing them all to self sow and merely scattering the seed on the soils surface, you will ensure a continuous supply of beautiful and unusual flowers all summer long, Nigella does well in warm or cool areas but prefers a slightly moist soil. you could not find easier to grow flowers ,I seldom rave over annuals to tell the truth there are only a few that I give garden space to but love in a mist is one of them they’re a must have flowers for any new gardener.
My favorite-Persian Jewels (seeds) that include flowers from all Nigella’s color ranges.

Day lily /Tiger Lily/Ditch lily/Hemerocalis fulva (Perennial Flowers)

The omnipresent Day Lily, found almost everywhere in North America, or at least it is if you live here in Ontario as it is one of the most beautiful of Ontario’s wild flowers. a profuse propagator by means of tuberous roots. Transplanting is best in spring or fall, water generously after transplanting .They do not mind overcrowding, as a matter of fact these flowers look their best when in bloom in a large, close knit mass planted groups forming patches of bright orange flowers here and there, dotted around the garden .These wild flowers are incredibly easy to grow just try and stop them. They are at home in nature, or as a back drop or foundation flowers for your home garden. These Day lily’s require little to no attention. they provide summer and fall interest and once established are a tall impenetrable ground cover I under plant and inter plant mine with other bulbs that display their flowers when the Day Lily is not blooming, they prefer moist to wet soils, but will grow anywhere sun or shade ,only two years ago I established a large patch in what was largely gravel just off my back patio That’s why they grow so well in and near ditches hence one of there common name Ditch Lily, always seems a little insulting to refer to beautiful large star shaped orange flowers by such a demeaning name. Fertilizer is not necessary, except in the poorest of soils. These flowers do not need winter protection and once established, thrive and increase year after year.

Profitability Gardening Tips to Grow Your Business

January 14, 2023 Category :Automobiles & Motorcycles| Beauty and Cosmetics Off

Gardening makes the perfect analogy for starting and growing a business, because in gardening what you plant is what grows. If you plant beans- you are going to get beans, not cauliflower. The same concept applies for business – how you started and created your organization’s foundation will largely determine how the company grows and prospers. One of the main reasons companies are struggling is the leaders lost sight of their core business offerings and ventured into expansion based on the wrong indicators. Other organizations started down one path- refusing to change directions when the signs necessitated another direction. For younger organizations the challenge is to commit to your strategy, while being flexible enough to adapt to market changes. For older, well established companies the challenge is to “weed out” what is no longer working, giving the profitable products/services a chance to expand and grow. Complacency is one of the biggest obstacles for organizations, and business leaders who are not committed to improving their organizations can end up with a bed of weeds, not a producing garden.

I have created the garden tips to help business leaders/owners grow their businesses in 2012 and beyond!

• First, plant three rows of peas: passion, performance, and profitability.
• Three rows of squash: squash gossip, squash complacency, squash negativity.
• Three rows of lettuce: let us be committed, let us be focused, and let us be loyal.
• Next, plant four rows of turnips: turn up with determination, turn up with innovation, turn up your vision, and turn up with a can-do attitude.
• Be generous with thyme: take time for fun, time for family and friends, and time for yourself.
• Weed out old systems, processes, and poor performers.
• Fertilize with constructive feedback, proactive communications, and watch miracles grow.
• Water generously with patience and commitment.

And remember, you reap what you sow.

The economy has stabilized and is showing signs of growing again. It is time to focus on your organization and to “guide” what you want to grow and prosper. If you have ever planted tomato plants you know you have to provide a support structure to keep the plant from toppling over when the fruit gets to big and heavy. The same analogy applies to your business, this recession has given us the opportunity to evaluate and re-evaluate our organizations, and format a strategy on how we want to conduct our business in the future. Take the time to look over your garden, notice what is growing, what needs to be pruned and clear out any weeds that have been overlooked. This is the start of a new growth cycle (with new opportunities), pour on the water and fertilizer, focus the sunshine, and get ready to harvest the fruits of your labors.

7 Human Resource Strategies to Use in a Recession

December 3, 2022 Category :Electronics and Electrical| Generals Off

By now most economists and armchair experts agree we’re in a recession.

What both the educated and lay pundits find more difficult to agree upon are the answers to troubling questions like “How deep will the recession be?” and “How long will it last?”

Estimates for recovery vary wildly from the blackly dismal to the rosily optimistic. It seems the only thing we can know for sure is that no one really knows.

With the future so uncertain, business publications have taken to promoting the philosophy that recessions create opportunity… at least for those with the moxie to make success happen. While this may come across to some as a tired cheerleading attempt, there is soundness to the ideology. Even during the Great Depression companies like Kellogg’s, Proctor & Gamble and Chevrolet did more than survive, they excelled. The people who steered their winning course did so with a combination of courage and inventiveness. In other words, they used moxie.

So where do you start? What kind of changes will ensure your company succeeds? Below are seven human resource strategies that are easy to implement and can make a big difference.

1.) Lead with Confidence – During these troubling financial times, it’s natural to want to take the backseat until the road ahead becomes clear. However, companies need strong leadership to prosper, now more than ever. Providing direction inspires confidence in your employees and helps build a faithful staff. Businesses that lead effectively now will retain loyal staff to meet their present and future challenges.

2.) Communicate effectively – Making sure people have the information they need is the foundation for any good relationship. Being honest and open with employees is especially important at a time when they may be dealing with serious concerns outside of the office. Present worries might include a laid off spouse, the possibility of their own layoff, fears about not being able to pay the bills, etc. As their leader you have the responsibility to lessen any stress they might be feeling by communicating openly about the outlook for staff members at your company. Don’t forget to communicate frequently because your employees’ financial positions might be changing quickly right now.

3.) Recruit purposefully – The anticipated global shortage of workers has not gone away: it has just been postponed. The reason? Baby boomers are choosing to work a little longer because their retirement savings have been deflated. Once the market comes back fully, you should expect a mass exodus as the boomers leave the workforce. Companies who make severe staffing cuts and don’t keep their HR people connected to potential hires will be caught severely short staffed. Savvy companies have a great opportunity right now to hire talented people who have been down-sized by other organizations.

4.) Make cuts strategically – Consider outsourcing the functions you can to help reduce costs, but don’t forget to take good care of any employees you might eliminate. Generous packages create goodwill and increase loyalty from those who remain. What’s more, the departing employees just might be more willing to return to work when times are better and your company faces the global staffing shortages that the recession postponed. Generous packages might seem out of the question in tight times but you should give serious consideration to offering the maximum that you can. Your company will be better able to recruit new staff in the future if its reputation is bolstered by how it treated people during the 2009 recession.

5.) Be strategic about delivering PD – Use your slower times to sharpen the skills, technical and personal, of your employees. This will help keep staff members engaged and equip them to provide the exceptional service that can sustain your company now and contribute to its prosperity later (see 6).

6.) Take great care of your customers – Remember the days when you attended networking events to stay connected, while secretly hoping you would not get too many new engagements because you did not know where you would find the staff, time or energy to provide the service? It all seems like a distant memory but it was probably less than 12 months ago.

What most business owners wouldn’t do if they could just have that problem again!

Instead you’re seeing business decline and you’re wondering how to regain it. Part of the answer is in training your people to be customer service specialists. Step back to the times when you only hired people who would go the extra mile to give your customers exceptional experiences with your company. Re-new your company’s customer focus now!

7.) Avoid layoffs with creative strategies – Before you cut staff, consider alternative ways to save money while still saving jobs. A day off without pay, work sharing arrangements, worker sharing with other companies, salary cut-backs, government assistance programs – these are only a few of the numerous possibilities that may work for you and your employees. Get creative!
