Big corporations, small companies, and even universities need to promote their brands or names from time to time, so that people will be familiar with what they sell, trade, or offer. Common advertising strategies use pamphlets, pins, stickers, magnets and many other materials to promote the names of companies, but one of the most effective promotional tools that are being used are cheap printed pens.

Writing has always been a part of our lives. Since we started doodling when we were still young until we began scribbling our first letters, pens, pencils, or any other writing materials have been with us through the years. No matter how modern technology is, writing will never be out of style. This is one great reason why using cheap printed pens are going to be effective and practical as promotional materials.

Day 6 4 hour Work day

Keeping track of time is crucial to this experiment. I will say I was on the phone a LOT this week and Friday went over the 4 hour time limit if you add the telephone conversation I had about 7 PM. It was business and I was doing a lot of listening! It’s an exciting opportunity, however, I want to have all the information before I get involved.

This week I also launched my crowd funding campaign at  www.crowdfundinglive/acfl   It’s for my new book. So as part of what I am doing to help raise money, I was on the phone.

I tend not to multitask while on the phone so I do not miss anything.

I tried to spend at least one hour in the office very day, however, there are a lot of things I can do at home and internet at the office has been wonky. It’s never worked right since I moved in ( June 2012) and I am tired of being on hold for 30 minutes to try and talk to Verizon about it again. I feel my life draining away every time I call.

NO- I did not get it wrong, I know it’s 4 hour work week, however, I am not looking for a 4 hour work week. This summer I wanted a 4 hour work day. Instead of being down on myself for wanting to enjoy the long days, I decided to increase my efficiency and then just take the rest of the time off. Now, you never know WHICH 4 hours of the day it will be. That’s my choice as a business owner. But I am free of guilt for slacking off or day dreaming while watching the butterflies in the office garden.

I am using a strategy I learned from Dave Lakhani – work for 50 min and then take a 10 min break. I Modified it to work for 20 and take a break  and I also use the action machine to time myself. Read more
