Putting airbrush art on T-shirts can be a fun and creative hobby. For those that want to take it a step further it can also be fun and exciting business. T-shirts containing airbrush art are popular and unique to wear. What makes airbrushed t-shirts so unique is that one of a kind images can be created giving the wearer a shirt that no one else has. Thus making for a pretty fun hobby or profitable business.

The great thing with airbrush art is that you really do not have to know how to draw. All you need to know how to do is successfully using the stencil that you wish to use for your design. The main key is learning how to control the airbrush gun so that you can get the paint only where you want it and not overcast the point where you do not want it. Once you master that then your options are endless with the vast array of stencils out there.

A bottom feed or siphon feed airbrush works best when putting airbrush art on a t-shirt. You should always stick with a name brand airbrush when airbrushing. The best name brands to go with are the Iwata or Badger. The Porsche is also a good quality airbrush to go with. You will save yourself money in the long run when using a name brand versus a generic airbrush.
When choosing an airbrush compressor keep in mind that putting … Read more

Top Five Self-Coaching Tips For Internet Businesses

Top Five Self-Coaching Tips For Internet Businesses

Jan 19 Big Red Group Leaders Offsite

Do new Internet businesses really need the services of a business Coach, even if they can afford it?
Being that one of my roles is as an Internet business coach I am somewhat biased and would generally answer “yes” to my own question!

Nonetheless, it is possible to effectively self coach regardless of whether you have a flesh and blood business coach or not.

While a student with the International Coach Academy, I also had a demanding full-time IT career with a major investment bank. And during my own transition from salaried employee status to that of startup Internet business owner, I used the following 5 self-coaching tips regularly.

1-Be Open To Alternative Ideas:

One potential downside of the social and peer conditioning in schools and corporate life, is that many people automatically resist even considering new ideas. Why is this? My experience suggests that these people have learned by experience not to rock the boat. If you think this looks and smells like fear of failure, you’d be absolutely right. As a solo business owner your challenge is to notice alternative ways of achieving objectives. Practically speaking, even if only a small percentage of these ideas might be useful in your business, they could still be the difference between success and failure.

2-Experience Life To The Max:

Here’s a saying I recall that brings this into focus:

“there are people worrying about what they will be doing in an eternal … Read more

Business Process Management

Business Process Management

Business process management is the process of designing and maintaining an environment in which individuals, working together in groups, efficiently accomplish selected aims. This basic definition needs to be expanded as manager’s carry out the managerial functions of planning, organizing, staffing, leading and controlling. Management applies to any kind of organization. It applies to managers at all organizational levels. The aim of all managers is to create a surplus. Managing is concerned with productivity implying effectiveness and efficiency.

Many scholars and managers have found that the analysis of business process management is facilitated by a useful and clear organization of knowledge. In studying management, it is helpful to break it down into five managerial functions involving planning, organizing, staffing, leading and controlling. The knowledge that underlies those functions is organized around these five functions.

Managers are charged with the responsibility of taking actions that will make it possible for individuals to make their best contributions to group objectives. Management applies to small and large organizations, to profit and not-for-profit enterprises, to manufacturing as well as service industries. The term enterprise refers to businesses, government agencies, hospitals, universities and other organizations. In business process management, all managers carry out managerial functions. However, the time spent for each function may differ. Top-level managers spend more time on planning and organizing than do lower-level managers. Leading, on the other hand, takes a great deal of time for first-line supervisors. The difference in the amount of time spent on controlling varies … Read more

When we think of art collectors, we generally think of wealthy sophisticates combing glamorous fine art galleries for the hottest new painter’s works. That may have been true in the past, but today there are many online art collectors who make a good living without ever visiting a brick and mortar art gallery.
Today a small movement has begun where average people are buying fine art online, holding it for a year or more, and earning a profit from resale. And what’s interesting is that almost all of these new online collectors have never had any experience with fine art beforehand. These savvy folks are buying limited edition fine art prints on canvas, printed in the expensive giclee process. Each one of these prints is so close to the original that only an expert can tell the difference.
These beautiful prints come with certificates that are signed by the artist and numbered. Once the limited edition sells out, it is common for the print to increase in value as much as 2-4 times the original price.
All an online art collector has to do is to visit a million dollar art gallery via the internet and learn about the various hot new artists, see their current offerings, and learn which artists are selling the most prints.
Then with a couple clicks the online art collector can purchase a limited edition print at a 20% discount from what the print is selling for … Read more

Japan Business Method Patent

In Japan, business methods are accepted as patentable subject matter. The legal standard used to assess whether a business method is patentable requires that inventions be “a highly advanced creation of technical ideas by which a law of nature is utilized.
The recent rapid development and diffusion of information technology (IT) are dramatically changing not only the methods to process enterprises’ internal tasks, but also modes of trading and even the businesses themselves. Because of this, the number of Japan business-method patent applications for IT-applied business methods has been increasing.
The Japanese Patent Office (JPO) has been making use of various opportunities in the effort to disseminate information about the criteria under which Japan business-method patent can be approved as part of software-related patents for the filing trend of Japan business-method patent applications). However, in revising the examination standards for inventions involving computer software, the JPO decided to formulate and publish comprehensive policies on Japan business-method patent in order to provide more precise information to industries and applicants. The JPO intends to continue its efforts to offer appropriate protection of intellectual property rights (IPRs) in this field under closer cooperation with overseas national patent offices.
Aiming to upgrade the JPO’s ability to examine Japan business-method patent applications, it will actively utilize experts from outside organizations for areas in which the JPO has yet to acquire sufficient technical knowledge. Prior art searches for Japan business-method patent … Read more

African art, crafts, and clothing are more popular than ever in North America and Europe. People love the way genuine African items let them connect with a peaceful, thoughtful world view that is the hallmark of many African cultures.

These days headlines in the West frequently report on Africa. Millions of tourists fly, ride, and even walk all over Africa every year. Because African art is so impressive and so uplifting — while being quite affordable — visitors and tourists almost always bring art, clothing, and crafts back home with them.

Why all the interest in Africa? Africa is different. Go to just about any large African city and you’ll see what I mean. The downtown area may be populated with high rise buildings and people wearing business suits. It may not look all that different from the business districts of Chicago or Paris.

But then take a look at how people are getting to and from work. Most don’t drive, they walk, often for miles. Huge freeway-sized paths filled with thousands of people walking flow in and out of the city.

That’s often the Western visitors first clue that being born and raised in Africa helps you see the world in a dramatically different way. The more time you spend in Africa, the more you begin to appreciate the open, relaxed, thoughtful, and inspired view that permeates society. It can be a big breath of fresh air … Read more

Guide to Ancient Art Replicas

Guide to Ancient Art Replicas

An affordable way to get unique works of art for your home or business is to buy ancient art replicas. These are beautifully created replicas of artwork or statues from ancient history. Art replicas can resemble modern art or art from hundreds or thousands of years ago. Ancient art replicas often date back to Egyptian art, Greek art, and ancient Christian art, or periods in history that have been long forgotten.

What is an Art Replica?

An art replica is not an original work, but a very accurate reproduction of the original. Art replicas are usually produced from scratch or touched up by skilled artists. Some art-painting replicas are painted entirely from scratch, while others might be copied digitally or by print and then highlighted by an artist’s brush.

Ancient art replicas portray the feeling and real-life sentiment of the original piece of work. Whether it’s an ancient painting by a Greek artist or statues of FooDogs, the replica artists or craftsmen make a great effort to recreate the original work. High quality replica paintings are usually hand-painted on canvas and are not merely “copies” of the painting. This gives the paintings a more authentic look and feel.

Ancient Art Replica Statues

Statues from the past can be replicated by creating a cast to match the shape and size of an original statue. A master mold is then turned into a replica statue using the utmost detail to capture the same quality as the original. … Read more

Giving business cards is an art, not only because they are needed to be considered successful or because, in fact, they represent your corporate or professional identity, but also as an opportunity to impact your existing or prospective customers, and stay in touch with them, helping you to deal confidently.

The scope of business etiquette includes considerations that many professional ignore, or simply do not pay enough attention in the belief that a business card is just a small paper rectangle with a name and phone numbers to introduce yourself.

Color business cards demonstrate that there is something else beyond a simple paper cut; otherwise, they simply would not exist. Certainly, all over the world-business cards are used to provide information about a company and/or the employee or professional who holds it, as well as contact information and other details such as business acquaintances or personal details.

Some of them include expressly empty spaces to write certain details such as an appointment date, some others are as simple as blank cards that come in handy when the holder has to leave a customer further details. However, those in color are undoubtedly part of a practical business strategy following refined business etiquette.

In business, time is gold and every minute is important because more often an individual only has a few minutes to impress a prospective client, before someone else does it first. Gentle manners can conquer, but accompanied with poor business cards, it is … Read more
