How to Start Your Own Mobile Screen Repair Service Business

General Article

You can start and run your own business, as a mobile screen repair service business, and make good money doing it. Most all homes have screens on the windows, to help keep the bugs out when the window is open. Lots of screens get rips and tears, and look unsightly after a few years in the weather.

You don’t have to buy new screen windows to make them like new again, you can fix them right on the spot for home owners and businesses.

You can replace the old screens with new ones, at a fraction of the cost of new screens. You can buy screen material at home improvement stores, and they also have the hand tools to cut, and replace the screen material, and make it look nice, tight, and new looking again.

You can call some local screen repair service companies, and get an estimate to see how much they are charging for screen repairs, and that would give you a good idea what the going rates are.

You can make up some fliers, and put them in sandwich baggies, with a few stones or pebble to give them a little weight, and then drive around slowly and toss them into each driveway you slowly drive by, to get new customers to call you. You should also have some nice signs on your auto, so customers can call you to fix their screens.

You can make up a flier and contact house painters, landscapers, window cleaners, and more, and offer to give them a commission for any jobs they send your way.… Read More

Why Social Media Causes Self Doubt and Anxiety & How You Can Fix It

General Article

In this technological age where everyone is constantly connected through tweets, status updates, and photos, there is this crushing weight of constantly comparing the seemingly-perfect lives of those in the virtual world to our own daily reality. In our logical brain, we know that it is irrational to assume the people we see on Instagram with designer handbags and 13k followers have perfectly unblemished lives. But, we still spiral into this whirlwind of depression, anxiety, and sadness brought on by our constant comparison of our real lives to the assumed online profiles of others.

Here’s the issue; we are in an age where technology has become deeply woven into our everyday. From cell phones to tablets, we are constantly locked into social media and the anxiety it brings on. When you are constantly checking and rechecking what is going on online and losing focus on your actual life, it is inevitable to start to compare yourself.

Your online friends are sharing the happiest moments in their lives. So, the new baby your brother just had, the trip to Bali your high school girlfriends just took, the new home your boss just bought; you compare all of those life achievements to what is happening in your real life. Even if you don’t want any of those things, it is nearly impossible to not feel the anxiety growing with every scroll.

But, how do we fix this in a world of constant connection?

Gratitude

Before you log on to your social media accounts in the morning, take a second to think about the good that is happening in your own life. Be grateful and fulfilled with what you have right now so that you don’t go online looking for validation for your happiness. Remember that the best moments are spent living and not posting.

Social Media Detox

Detox’s are great because they are short, extreme ways to get all of the junk out of your system. When it comes to social media, a detox can help you regroup and approach social media with a clearer mind. Simply spend a day being present in your life – no selfies, no filters, no clever remarks. Take a walk, read a book, enjoy your day without the stress of social media. Don’t value a moment based on how many likes it will get.

Everything is a Mirage

The first thing you need to understand about social media is that nothing is really as it seems. All of the photos, likes, and statuses are one small piece of a huge puzzle that you can’t see. That new car your college roommate just bought and broadcasted about is not going to include the tears, loans, and saving she had to do to get there. Understand that for every magical, perfectly posed picture on social media there are at least 50 not so picture perfect moments that got instantly deleted.

Comparison on social media is a trap that can toss you into a realm of depression, sadness, and … Read More
