Martin Home Offices: Small Is Beautiful

Martin Home Offices: Small Is Beautiful Years ago, I remember hearing about an entrepreneur who ran a multi-million dollar construction company from her studio apartment, using a small closet as an office. Of course this was only the administrative headquarters, the heavy equipment was kept elsewhere.

I was impressed by this thrifty home business owner who said she had no plans to rent space and increase her operating costs as her company grew: she loved her little closet office and made it work.

My fellow Xocai Sipping Coco home based business owners enjoy the benefits of operating their own business from their Middleville home: unlimited income potential, flexibility, and being their own boss. Some new team members recruited from the corporate world are initially skeptical about being able to run their business from a small home or apartment. Today’s article is about working in a small home office.

Think of yourself as an astronaut in a cockpit with all the controls at your fingertips. How is a cockpit organized? There are buttons and switches on every level, but all accessible.

  • Get a desk that fits your space. Corner desks can free up space not ordinarily used.
  • Office chairs with rollers let you easily access items within arm’s reach without having to stand up.
  • Shelves, shelves, shelves! Use all that prime vertical real estate on your walls.
  • Get a paper shredder and use it.

A paper shredder takes up some room but frees up space previously populated by papers you don’t need anymore. For example, invoices or sales orders that have been entered electronically. Some super-organized Xocai Sipping Coco team members regular schedule paper-shredding into their weekly agenda.

One drawback of home offices is the difficulty of holding meetings. It is hard to remain professional when inviting a client to your home office that doubles as a laundry room. You can solve this by holding large business meetings in rented Middleville conference rooms. Small meetings can be held over lunch or breakfast in business-friendly Martin restaurants. (Check for internet access before scheduling.)

Before you head out to your nearest Martin Office Max to buy a rolling chair, desk, or shelf unit, take measurements of your space. This may save you a trip to return an item that doesn’t fit.

Where Will Your Bradley Home Business Take You?

Where Will Your Bradley Home Business Take You?

Hello! Welcome to today’s Bradley home based business article. When you start a home based business or online store in Bradley, you never know where it may take you.

Do you think Amazon founder Jeff Bezos ever dreamed his small web-based bookstore would grow into the largest online retailer? Bezos started his enterprise in the garage of his home in Bellevue, Washington.

All types of businesses are started in Bradley homes: manufacturing, accounting, day spas, catering, music/dance instruction, personal training, and a whole bunch of online retailers and service providers.

Even during times of economic stagnation, ambitious Bradley entrepreneurs build lucrative businesses from scratch. All of the top earning Middleville businesses started somewhere. In many cases that ‘somewhere’ was a garage, spare room, or a laptop on the kitchen counter.

Dream big with the Xocai Xe low start-up business opportunity in Bradley.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies In Wayland?

Chocolate Nutrition in Middleville Many Wayland people still believe the following fallacy: ‘If it tastes good, it must be bad for you.’ Shelbyville folks who have tried Xocai Power Squares or Nuggets know that some health chocolate is delicious. But what about healthy chocolate chip cookies? Achieving perfect cookie texture can be tricky, even when using traditional heart-clogging ingredients. Successful baking requires a degree of precision not necessary in many other types of food preparation.

Xocai figured out how to make a chocolate nutrition cookie with all the necessary elements: correct chip/cookie ratio, satisfying texture, proper sweetness level, and genuine chocolate flavor.

X Powerhouse cookies are loaded with antioxidant chocolate chips, natural sweeteners and (surprise!) fiber. What do Xocai X Powerhouse cookies lack? Refined sugars, trans-fats, chemicals and the guilt factor.

Snacking on X Powerhouse Cookies can help break the cycle of unhealthy dietary habits. You and your family can still experience the great taste and decadence of a snack food without suffering the dangerous health consequences. Xocai is the chocolate nutrition company for Middleville families who are trying to live healthier.

I am Derrick Winkel, an independent Wayland Xocai distributor. Xocai antioxidant chocolate products are helping my family live healthier. If you eat chocolate regularly, you may want to try Xocai. My phone number is 949 412-1001. I love to share Xocai with Middleville chocolate lovers who want to replace the bad with the good.

Give me a call if you have questions about Xocai dark chocolate or the Xocai Bradley business opportunity.

Honey – Natural Remedy For Kid’s Coughs In Wayland

Honey Natural Remedy For Kids Coughs In Wayland

Does your Wayland child wake himself up repeatedly each night because of a bad cough? Upper respiratory infections can make sleeping very difficult for kids.

It turns out that Mother Nature’s sweetest treat may also help Michigan children enjoy more zzzz’s each night. Buckwheat honey has been found to be a more effective remedy for children’s coughs than dextromethorphan (DM), the ingredient in common over-the-counter cough medicine.

A study published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine concluded that honey gave children more relief from upper respiratory symptoms than DM or no treatment.1

Thanks to Michigan bees we have a safe and effective cough remedy for children over one. Remember to never give infants honey because of the risk of infantile botulism.

My name is Derrick Winkel and I sell Xocai Xe in the Middleville area. I am also an advocate for children’s health and nutrition in Michigan. Contact me today for more information about Xocai Xe or Xocai Sipping Coco.

Xocai News from Wayland On Jeanette Brooks

Middleville Jeanette Brooks Founder Jeanette Brooks, Founder and President of MXI Corp, and her family of entrepreneurs have turned their passion for chocolate into chocolate dreams with their development of Xocai, the healthy dark chocolate. Xocai is an High Antioxidant Company with High Antioxidant Products. The common threads woven throughout all of Xocai’s products are: High antioxidant quantity, raw, unprocessed cacao and unique flavors (that prevent flavor fatigue).

Jeanette’s chocolate dreams are best experienced in two ways—first by health conscious choco-holics who want chocolate no matter what, and secondly, through MXI Corp, her direct selling company that offers a business opportunity to those who want to market the healthy antioxidant line of dark chocolates.

Some 18 years ago, Jeanette was diagnosed with diabetes which motivated her search for ways to lower her weight and improve her health without sacrificing taste in the products she loves. This led the family which includes her husband, Martin and her son, Andrew (, into their first healthy, low-carbohydrates venture with a company called Pure De-lite. At that time, Dr. Robert Atkins’ low-carbohydrate diet was all the rage. Jeanette saw the need for a good tasting low-carb chocolate bar.

“The Brooks family did their research, from the highest-antioxidant cacao bean grown in the Ivory Coast to the best chocolate manufacturer in Belgium. Their research culminated in bringing dark chocolate to the retail market, as Pure De-lite, at a time when it was little known. With their product in hand, Jeanette put her marketing savvy to work, and in a short time, they had built their low-carb business to $300 million in retail sales. Many retailers sold their low-carb chocolate bars, including Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, GNC, and CVS to name a few.”
-Adam Green, Founding Executive ( )

When Dr. Atkins passed away the low carb industry quickly vanished. However, America’s desire for healthy dark chocolate was growing. In fact, according to recent statistics nine out of ten people love chocolate and crave it every day. The average American eats 12 pounds of chocolate every year. Additionally, many doctors are also promoting the health benefits of a raw, dark, unprocessed chocolate.

Once again, after seeing the continuing need/desire for a unique chocolate, the Brooks family conducted further research into healthy dark chocolate products and created Xocai, the healthy dark chocolate product line which they chose to distribute through network marketing.

“We had a dream of taking healthy chocolate worldwide and the best way to do that was through the people.”
-Jeanette Brooks, Founder and President of MXI Corp

Chocolate lovers can now simply replace the bad chocolate with the good chocolate. The Brooks family established MXI Corp over four years ago in Reno, Nevada to provide healthy chocolate products and a promising business opportunity for their business partners. Jeanette’s motto is, “From cacao beans to chocolate dreams.”
