home business magazine adapts to the future

Every home-based entrepreneur is faced with the challenge of adapting their business to changes in the market. It’s part of a business’s evolution — and survival. Change is our only constant. As such, Home Business Magazine is adapting to the rapidly changing online world. Home Business is now a fully digital magazine, and we have ended the print version. I am shifting resources to build and grow the magazine’s digital circulations and online promotions. I can now better format the magazine for digital readerships. I’m also working with magazine advertisers to more deeply penetrate Home Business’s digital, SEO, video, and social media channels (see homebusinessmag.com/magazine-advertising). I had to make a tough decision on ending print circulation. Overall, print readership was no longer generating value and response for the high expense it requires.…

interview with angelina jolie

Angelina Jolie starred in the movie Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. In this interview, she talks about the movie, vulnerability, becoming a mother, being true to yourself, life coming with sacrifices, and more. Question (Q): Angelina, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil touches on good vs evil again. Do we all fight that internal fight? Angelina Jolie (AJ): Yes, good vs evil, it’s a grey area. We all of us have a little bit of that in us. This movie is also about strength and how it manifests itself. It’s different in all of us. Aurora, in my opinion, is the strongest and the wisest.

And considering the soaring cost of housing, education, and health care, we also need more money. If this resonates with you, have you given any thought to starting a side hustle? Now, I don’t suggest this…

embracing a burn the boat mindset

The world is beginning to give attention to the man with no formal college education who turned the loss of a successful corporate job into becoming arguably one of the most profound days in his professional career. Meet Ryan Sprance, one of the most successful digital marketing experts in the country. After no true justification, on May 1, 2018, Ryan Sprance was fired from his job. However, since March of 2013, Sprance has been building a side hustle. If you have yet to hear of Kaihatsu Media, it’s the agency that very well may have given birth to and deemed Sprance as the Social Media Guru. As Sprance began his social media and content marketing agency, he was generating just $1,000 a month in revenue, struggling to get his business off the ground.…
