The answer to that question is obvious. People notice our baby clothes because they are likely to be colorful and attractive. Besides, many babies tend to attract attention to themselves simply because they are so adorable. Others just can’t help looking at them and smiling. So the answer is clear – people do notice the clothes that the young are wearing.But many parents ignore this fact. When they clothe their young in poor quality clothes, they seldom stop to think that others are noticing. The clothes that you put on your baby is a statement of who you are as a parent. And for sure, you don’t want to send out the wrong signals. All parents love their babies, but some just don’t know how to express their love in different and creative ways. You don’t have to wait for your child to grow up before showering your love on him or her. You can start immediately, by clothing your baby in comfortable and high quality baby clothes.Make your statement bold and clear to the world, that you love your offspring very much. One way to do so is by buying personalized baby clothes. Personalized clothing means that you will get unique designs. When others notice your little one, they will also notice the extra effort that you put in for the sake of your baby. It says that you care enough as a parent to take the trouble to do something special for the small one.There are all sorts of merchandise that you can personalize, from full outfits with just their name, to hats, sweatshirts, T-shirts, shoes and socks, and even umbrellas with your own design. There are items for boys and girls.The design personalization process is a simple one. Start by choosing a design from the vendor, or you can prepare a design of your own. Design here means having a picture ready for the designer to use. You should also think of a special message that will be hand written on the merchandise. When the images and texts are ready, the entire design will be hand painted on to the product itself.When it comes to the design, don’t be afraid to try out new ideas. You can have anything you want painted on the clothes and accessories. For example, if you know your son loves dinosaurs, you can paint a dinosaur on the T-shirt. You can paint some letters of the alphabet that you know your child has difficulty learning. That way, the clothes become a learning tool.Notice how most babies get bored while on the move? Paint some colorful animals on the clothes to keep the little one occupied while traveling. You may also write the baby’s name on the accessories so that the little one can pick up the name quickly. If you ever run out of ideas, just make a quick visit to the website to look through some designs. Remember, these are custom designs. You can always improvise on existing designs and get completely new and unique ideas.

Is starting a home based business right for you?Are you right for starting a home business?Since you are reading this, I would be willing to bet you want to start your own home based business, or you have tried to start one a time or two. Maybe it didn’t work out and you would like to try again. Maybe it was a modest success, but you wonder why your home business is not more successful.It is no secret that I believe at least half of all adults, and some teenagers, should start their own home based business. Even if they have a good job. Everyone knows, especially lately, that a good job can be gone in an instant. So, start your home business in your spare time. Build it into a successful sideline as insurance against loss of that good job. Or, build it into a business that could provide you with as much income as you make at your job, or more. Wouldn’t you like to tell your boss someday “Goodbye, I’m quitting this job to concentrate on my home business. I make more with my business than what you pay me”?But, I’m getting off track. To be honest, a home business is not right for everyone. And, not everyone is right for a home based business.A home business, or any business for that matter, takes some degree of skill and knowledge, hard work, persistence, dedication, and focus. And a home business is different in many ways compared to a corporate job or a traditional retail or manufacturing business.Is a home based business right for you?Almost every home business has tons of distractions; kids, pets, home maintenance, the “honey do” list. Distractions make it hard to focus. Will these distractions make it so hard for you to focus that you can’t get done what needs to get done in your business?Running a business from your home makes it hard to separate personal time from business time. The two will overlap a lot and you will either find your personal time eating into your business time, or your business time will take over and you will have little if any personal time for yourself or your family.Many home businesses will result in loss of face-to-face social interaction with people. Nice chats with coworkers over cubicle walls, or at the water cooler, or over shared lunch breaks are replaced with emails, tweets, or phone calls.If your home or apartment is fairly small, you may not have the space to set up a separate “office” where you can do your “work”. Your kitchen table might become your “office”.Most home business entrepreneurs have no regular paycheck. Having a uncertain and irregular income creates its own problems and may require a much better job of budgeting, saving money during the good times, and strict control of expenses.During the initial year or two of your home business efforts you may not have total family support. If that is the case for you, it may be difficult to keep going until you are as successful as you would like to be.Are you right for a home based business?Are you self-directed? – Are you willing and able to get things done with no boss telling you what to do?Are you able to live with no structured job description? – Can you function and be comfortable without a specific job title or written outline of what you are supposed to do?Are you willing and able to learn about, and learn how to do, a wide variety of tasks and functions? – Can you wear many hats doing whatever is required to start and build your business as the chief cook and bottle washer (at least initially)?Are you able to identify exactly what you want in your business and your life? – Can you clearly identify what you want to do, have, or be, and why? Can you persist until you have that? Knowing what you really want, and why you want it, can give you the direction and motivation you need to succeed. And, persistence is one of the most important characteristics you could have for success in home business, or in any effort.Are you able to “sell” ideas and products to people? – I don’t mean “Can you be a hypey sales type that tries to manipulate people into buying something?” Many people hate to “sell” because they think that is what it means to sell. But, it has been said that “nothing happens until something gets sold”. You will need to sell in order to be successful. When I say “Can you sell?”, I mean, can you identify with people and the problems they have? Can you communicate with people in such a way that they believe you understand their problems? Can you tell them about how their problem could be solved, and especially how your product is the best way to solve their problem? Can you clearly state all the benefits to them of using your product to solve their problem? Can you create and communicate an offer to your prospects that is so good they would think it is too good to pass up? Can you find the people who have the problem your product can solve and present your offer to them? Can you ask for the order and deliver the product you have promised to those who order? And, finally, can you follow up with your customers to make sure they are satisfied and to offer them additional products and build your relationship with them?Are you able to function without a lot of face to face social interaction with others? – Are you comfortable with having your interactions with people being limited to emails, Twitter, Facebook, or maybe phone conversations? Or, do you NEED personal conversations over the cubicle wall, at the water cooler, or during shared lunch breaks?Do you have a success “can do” attitude, or do you have a lot of excuses for why something can’t be done?Are you able to plan your business, marketing, and product creation, and then execute the plan? – Are you good at planning, and more importantly, are you good at taking action to make your plan happen?Are you able to ask others for help when you need it? – Nobody can be an expert at everything. Are you humble enough to realize you will need help with something? Are you willing to find and ask an expert for assistance?Are you able to make decisions quickly, or do you procrastinate? – Are you willing to move forward, even if you might fail? Or, does everything have to be perfect, with no chance of failure, before you will act?OK. I think you get the picture. A home based business may be right for you. And, you may be right for a home based business. Be honest with yourself when you evaluate both possibilities.If you think you can weather the storm of a home business environment, and if you think you have the drive and personal characteristics to be successful in a home business, GO FOR IT!When your home based business becomes successful, the personal and financial freedom you will have, and the pure joy of doing something you love, will be worth all the time and effort.You know I think a home based business selling information is perfect for most people. But, if you don’t agree, pick one you can believe in and make it happen.
