Advancements in technology have made it easier than ever to create a home-based biz. And with just 50% of the planet online (as of 2017), many fortunes are yet to be made.
There are some very good reasons to work for someone else: someone else handles all the details involved with running a business, and you just clock in and clock out. Plus, many jobs can't be done online, like the trades.
However, if you're like me, you're part of the growing throng of humans that are attracted to working location independently... because you can:
Today Chromebooks are the most widely used computer in education.
My top tip: If you're not a "power user", buy a Chromebook. In short: they are inexpensive, fast, and will do everything most people want to do on a computer.
You can actually get a new one that looks like a Macbook Air, is almost as fast, but costs 1/3 the price of a Macbook Air. Yes really (see pic below). They are cloud-based computing, and many say that is the future.
My top tips on buying a Chromebook:
1) get 4 Gb of ram
2) get an IPS screen, unless you don't mind washed out colours, and
3) pay for the extended warranty, often a good idea with technology
Brainwave Optimization is one of the most advanced therapies on the planet. It is especially helpful for recovery from stroke, trauma, PTSD, concussions, addictions, insomnia and compulsions.
After the 3rd session many people are saying, "I haven't slept this well in years."
Brainwave Optimization was invented about 15 years ago by a computer scientist, Lee Gerdes, after he was attacked by 3 teenagers, one with a baseball bat.
Sometimes it be hard to feel grateful for things as they are. And that's why I wrote this, because things ARE improving, like never before.
Now is actually the best time to be alive in history!
First let's look back just 150 years, to 1870. What was life like then?
Technology is awesome...to a point. We all know that runaway use of technology can easily mess up our sleep and cortisol levels. But, good news, there's a number of really simple things we can do...
1. Put your Wifi router on a timer. Off at 11p, on at 7am. Decreases elecro-smog in the house, and deters you from staying up past 11 watching Netflix. If you usually go to bed at midnight, you could even set the timer for midnight...and then in a few days, back it off to 1145p...and so on, slowly training yourself to get to get sleep earlier. Don't doubt it: light is a stimulant just like sugar and carbs. Keep it under control so you get your beauty sleep, and have energy the next day for what matters.
The Fabulous - a very well done, beautiful, guided health app. A woman's voice gets you drinking more water, eating a healthy breakfast, and even doing short meditations. Very impressive and points to what smartphones will become: health coaches that talk to you!
You Food - a cool food and exercise tracking app where you take pictures of your food, then upload them for other members of the community to see. Star your favourite meals or the ones of others that you want to try. Set goals (like 'Whole 30', or 'lose 10 lbs', or 'do 25 pushups a day'), and be cheered on by those with the same goal or who already achieved it.
