Home Business Pros and Cons (1 of A 10 Part Series)

The advantages of having a home business far outweigh the disadvantages unless you are not the personality to thrive in a work at home situation.

The advantages of a home business, as opposed to going into the nine to five office environment, include stress reduction, a taking charge of your own future attitude that is bound to boost your morale, and a vast increase in the motivation of doing your own thing. While there can be added interruptions not often found in the office environment such as noisy and invasive neighbors, the reverse is generally more prevalent. Building your own home business, whether you are doing so on the Internet, on the phone, as a mobile home service or other ways, eliminates the distractions of the water cooler effect. You will not have any office meetings to interrupt your work, no office workers stopping by to chat, and so forth. Your ability to work your hours and in your own quiet and closed off environment will generally make your home business a more productive one, and which will probably lead to accomplishing the same tasks in fewer hours.

Your online home business will save you money. You will no longer have to commute to and from the office each day, nor will you have to dress each day in office-appropriate attire. You will not have to pay for daily parking and lunch at the corner deli. You might save on child care, though your conducting your business from your home should not mean that you do double duty at the same time as the caregiver. Your auto insurance will generally be reduced when you tell your insurance carrier that your work commute is zero miles.

If you have any disabilities your Internet home business could resolve unemployment or underemployment issues. If you are agoraphobic or unable to drive, of if you are hearing impaired that online home business can still thrive, and you can still grow that business with no obstacles at all.

The biggest impediment to your home business could be your own personality. You must know that you are self-motivated, self-disciplined, organized enough to keep your own files, your own records, and a sensible schedule. You have to know you are able to stay away from the refrigerator a reasonable amount of the day, keep working when the TV invites you just a few feet away, and can gently but firmly let your friends and neighbors know that even though you are a few doors away you cannot be disturbed.

The equipment and supplies, as well as the ergonomics of your home business office are all your responsibility and you must take them seriously. Do not scrimp on comfort and safety because you do not have the money to spend as you start your home business. You can scour the second hand stores or Goodwill for suitable furniture if money is an issue, but you must have a chair that will keep you comfortable for 8-10 hours a day, a computer monitor that is adequately sized and arranged for your good eye and wrist health, cords that are tucked away so you do not trip on them, and great lighting.

If you cannot manage these things then you are not ready to start your home business. You would be setting yourself up for failure.

A Home Business Needs Office Space

If you have a home business and you work from home you may not have a dedicated office space you can call your own. Even if you do it may not meet up to your ideal requirements. Unless you are lucky enough to have a separate room for your office and enough cash to fit it out just as you want it, you are likely to have to make do to a certain extent.

Take this opportunity to have a look round at the space where you work. Does it satisfy you? Are there things about it that just don’t seem to really work that well? Are you constantly tripping over things cluttered on the floor? Do you struggle to make the most of the space you have?

Wherever you happen to work, the best way to get the most out your home office space is to take some time to arrange it properly. You could do this over a weekend if you have the time. Alternatively block out an afternoon of your work time a couple of weeks from now and don’t book anything else into that time beforehand. Make a list of the things you want to do and keep that list handy so you can jot things on it over time.

One of the most important things in any home office space is the desk. This is where the majority of your business will be done of course, so it needs to feel right for you and fulfil your needs. If it is messy it will not be the most pleasant space to work in.

When you start your office overhaul, clear off your desk and give it a good clean. You might want to buy some filing trays to have on one side in order to keep your business paperwork organised. This makes things easier to find and keeps the clutter down.

Sometimes just giving your office space a good spring clean is enough to make you feel motivated about it again. But if you still feel unhappy about some aspect of it you can often find out where the problem lies by clearing items and rearranging things carefully.

Keeping whatever area you have tidied is the key to feeling better about your workspace. Buy storage cabinets or filing cabinets if you need them. They will look good and keep paperwork off the floor; you won’t have the problem of tripping over files constantly either. Health and safety applies just as much in your own home office as it does everywhere else. A lot of it is common sense though so make sure you take a look round and identify any potential areas where problems could occur. Make sure there are no wires or leads from computers or printers you could trip over for example.

The point is that there are always things you can do to make your office space more pleasant. Add some plants and keep it clean all the time too. You will find it makes the world of difference to how organised your home business feels.

Original Mural

The Mansion House is a historical landmark, a restaurant, pub and venue for live music. It was originally constructed in the early 1800s to be a home and store for
William Hamilton Merritt, the main promoter of the original Welland Canal.

In the 1820s the building was turned into a hotel with the addition of a large dining room and office. Life carried on in the hotel, with travelers and sailors boarding in the rooms, and Merritt conducting his business.

In 1859 a fire raged through downtown St. Catharines, and caused significant damage to the Mansion House. During the rebuilding the name changed a number of times, until 1868 when it was re-named The Mansion House.


Tax Deductions You Can Take For Your Home Business

Many people who work from home offices know how important tax deductions can be. Without the benefit of having employers to help shoulder some of the tax burden, it can be difficult to pay one’s taxes. Deductions offer a way to pay a smaller amount of taxes. Here are some of the basic deductions that you can take when you use a home office. Note that state taxes vary from federal taxes, and you should check with your state before claiming deductions on state forms for home office expenses.

Office equipment used for your home based business is deductible. Even if you use it for other things, you can usually count it. But you will have to figure out how much of the time it is used for your business, and how much of the time it is used for personal use. For example, if you have a printer at home that you use mainly for printing invoices for your clients, but sometimes you print out your son’s homework, you need to figure that out. Maybe you use the printer 80% of the time for business and the other 20% for other uses. You will have to pro-rate the printer, though. You can claim less of a deduction each year that it is in use. The same goes for a computer. Basic office supplies like paperclips, telephone, paper, and staples can also be deducted. But they should be used strictly for your home office, and not for other things.

Your actual home office space can also be deducted. It is best if you have an entire room in the house set aside for your home business, so that the calculations are easier. What you do is figure up how much space, in square feet, you use for your home office. Then you divide that by the total square feet of the house and multiply the result by 100. That will give you the percentage of the space in the house that is used for your home office. You can then use that percentage to figure out how much of the mortgage or the rent goes to the home office space and use it for a deduction.

Even services can be deducted. If your business depends upon the Internet for its functioning, you can figure up how much of the time you are using the Internet for business (in a percentage, like around 60%). Then you can take that percentage and apply it to your monthly Internet bill. The same goes for telephone. There is even a calculation you can do for other utilities like electricity.

Fees you pay for your business’s Web hosting and domain can also be deducted. Additionally, advertising also counts as an expense, so if you advertise your home business in the local paper, the cost can be deducted. Just make sure that you keep careful track of what you spend, and make sure to save the receipts. And if things look to be getting a bit hairy, you can consult a tax preparer to help you with the business end. If he or she just helps you with your home office deductions, you can deduct that too.

Midtown Manhattan, or simply Midtown, is a geographic area of Manhattan, New York City. It is home to some of the city’s most iconic buildings, including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and the United Nations Headquarters. It contains world-famous commercial zones such as Rockefeller Center, Broadway, and Times Square.

Geographically, Midtown is commonly defined as the area south of 59th Street, east of the Hudson River, west of the East River, and though its southern border is less clear, most consider it to be somewhere between 14th Street and 30th Street. Overall, Manhattan can be divided into three geographic regions: "Uptown", Midtown, and "Downtown".

As New York’s largest central business district, Midtown Manhattan is the busiest single commercial district in the United States, and among the most intensely used pieces of real estate in the world. The majority of New York City’s skyscrapers, including its tallest hotels and apartment towers, lie within Midtown. The area hosts commuters and residents working in its offices, hotels, and retail establishments; many tourists, visiting residents, and students populate the district. Some areas, such as Times Square and Fifth Avenue, have large clusters of retail stores. Sixth Avenue in Midtown holds the headquarters of three of the four major television networks. It is a growing center of finance, second in importance within the United States only to Downtown Manhattan’s Financial District. Times Square is the center of Broadway theatre.

Online Home Business Office for Away From Home Dads

If you have a successful home based, online, Internet business there may come a time that you need to choose to take that office elsewhere if only on a part time basis.

Most of you will yell NO! at me through your monitor who are in the home based business online industry. I would do the same thing to tell you the truth. I would not do it either.

However, some people just cannot thrive at their business working from the home office. While the home Internet businesses are an attractive concept to them perhaps their spouse, children or pets do not or will not understand and are too disruptive to your business.

You can possibly avoid this situation with training and give and take with your spouse children and pets. If you are hearing the, you do not love me, line from your spouse children and pets maybe you can meet somewhere in between.

Acts as simple as having your children and pets set on your lap and be quiet while you are working will frequently satisfy them. Take pre arranged breaks for activity with your family to also satisfy them.

Taking agreed on and scheduled breaks to play and work with your different family members will also help. Remind them that you need breaks for yourself to chill out also.

Write a contract with your spouse and children that they help make, sign and agree to the terms. Train your pet to know that they will have play and walk times. Have the family help with tasks so they appreciate your business more.

To keep your business sanity you must get out of your house at least one hour everyday. This is a good time to walk with your dog and talk, offline, with your family. You are refreshed also.

Ideas will come from your subconscious at these rest times. Some will be good.

Do you find yourself too tempted by the TV in the next room or the refrigerator close by? How many modestly success entrepreneurs would you guess succeeded using these useless tools? Correct. None!

It is not that you have not succeeded at your home office online business. It may just be that you will succeed more elsewhere, and you will keep peace in the home too. Or will you?

If you have not left your job yet you must clearly lay out what your family, pets and friends can expect. If you do not do this clearly before you leave the job, disaster will follow. Got it? Good. Let us keep going.

This is only if you can not get your family to agree to cooperate and work with you. Explain that you worked hard and left your job to be home with them. If this fails you will just have to work away from home.

Loneliness could be a factor in moving the home base Internet business from the home. This will be true if you have no family or pets living with you.

An office environment may mean that other business people who run other entrepreneur businesses, like you, are down the hall.

The knowledge that you will run into people with similar business issues and conflicts at the copy machine or in the community break room can be good and helpful.

It is often a comforting thought. More comforting than trying to converse with your three year old about your client problems. Especially if a spouse is not home to support you at this time.

Perhaps just a partial move out is all that is necessary. You will still need to draw limits on your future growth at this time to control your life and happiness.

Friends and relatives will feel they can waste your time by dropping in during your working hours. They will say you are free to play now and even ask you to help them with their chores because you have more time now.

It happens. Just say no to these requests.

This outside, of the home, office environment can result in more productivity. You will be less tempted to waste two hours at lunch with a friend, relative or business associate.

With business growth you might grow out of home office space. This is a common fact. When you hire employees, you need more storage, PCs or other equipment. You may start to have local clients that want to stop by your office.

If this happens once too often and you get tired of finding excuses to meet them for coffee at the local Tim Hortons you might start thinking you need a real office. If you have a family, bring them in on this carefully before you move out.

At this point you need to decide if you want to grow anymore. Is your business becoming the awful job you escaped from?

Is it going to cost you your family and marriage? Talk it over big time with your family before taking the next step out of your home.

A friend of mine moved his home based Internet business to a location where the fax machine kept going off in the middle of the night and calling him.

Cell phone calls can be disruptive at odd hours as well, as clients and business colleagues anticipate getting your voice mail, not realizing they are waking you at home. Email is the answer here.

Set hours that you can answer the phone and let your customers know your hours so they know what to expect. If someone wants to call you at unfair hours, even a customer, you have to draw the line of respect.

Sometimes you might have to let a good customer go. I have had to do this myself. Your sanity and peace come first.

With any major business decision, whether Internet business or large corporation, there are cons as well as pros to consider.

The negatives are that you will be back to commuting, with the frustration, time consumption and even added danger of driving in this day and age when more people go through red lights and stop signs.

You will have the added expenses of furnishings, leasing, utilities, insurance and more stress you left at your old job.

Of course, if you have had to decline potential clients because you did not have the staff, time or facilities to complete their project, the decision might be easy.

If the profit expected from the move outweighs the cost of the move, it may be well worth your time. If it is better than your old job and does not cost you your family, it may be worth it.

Remember, just a part time outside office may be the answer. If you can still be happy, and not ruin your life, go for it.

The modern concept of small office/home office, or SoHo, refers to the category of business, which involves from 1 to 10 workers. SOHO can also stand for small or home office or single office/home office. A larger business enterprise, one notch up the size scale, is often categorized as a small business. When a company reaches 100 or more employees, it is often referred to as a Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME). (Source Wikipedia)


Turning Your Home Business Into Home Office

In a troubled economic condition wherein many people are losing their jobs, many have opted for self-employment. This has become a reliable prospect knowing that many people have also experienced financial success with work from home businesses. There are several benefits and yet the earning potential is quite promising as well.

If you are one of these people, then you might want to consider making your home business legitimate with the establishment of your home office. Home business owners might fail to give this priority, especially if they start to enjoy the cost savings entailed with working from. However, creating a home office will offer added benefits for your business.

Your Professional Image

If you intend to make your home business grow, then it only makes sense to set up a home office. You will be able to establish a professional image behind your business that will convince your clients to do more business with you in the future.

Moreover, your home office will serve as the best place where you could hold professional meetings with your client if they wish to discuss business with you or entertain potential customers. Indeed, image plays such a vital role in every form of business as it increases the client’s confidence in your ability to deliver work. This is your first opportunity at impressing them.

Separation From Home Life

Most individuals who are self-employed or work from home are easily distracted in their work with activities at home. Therefore, several tasks are put off and you fail to deliver work on time. Setting up your home office will build that separation from your home life. Although at home, you can still attend to your work from your home office, free of any form of distraction. And yet, when emergencies come up, you’d still be easy to contact.

The idea here is not entirely to separate yourself from family. However, it helps to create a boundary and let the members of your family know that even though you are at home, you need to attend to work and must be freed off any distraction. Make sure you inform them of your working schedule so they won’t be disturbing you during those hours. This is also one reason why you should opt for a separate room in the house to convert as your home office. This creates the necessary separation from work and home life.

Business Growth

With a home office, you are able to open up opportunities for expanding your business and its reach. In a professional setting, there are people assigned to work for a certain aspect of your business. Hence, companies hire people to attend to human resource, technical support, finance, and some other important departments. But with home businesses, especially starting ones, deciding whether to hire employees is a tricky one. There are compensation and insurance coverage that you need to take care of. And yet, you cannot fail to consider the benefits of having employees working for your home business and its success.


This is probably the most obvious reason as to why you should legitimize your home business by setting up a home office. You can get savings in your time, energy, and effort. Moreover, you have one specific area in your house that is designed for the purpose of doing business. Here, you can have all the materials and furnitures you need to make doing work convenient. And if you want to step out of the pressure-filled world of your work life, then stepping out to your home life is literally a few steps away.

Denver City and County Building from Colorado State Capitol, Denver Civic Center, Denver, Colorado

Image by Ken Lund
Civic Center is a neighborhood and park in Denver, Colorado. The area is known as the center of the civic life in the city, with numerous institutions of arts, government, and culture as well as numerous festivals, parades, and protests throughout the year. The park is home to many fountains, statues, and formal gardens, and includes a Greek amphitheater, a war memorial, and the Voorhies Memorial Seal Pond. It is well known for its symmetrical Neoclassical design.

Civic Center is located in central Denver just south of the Central Business District. The park is located at the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Broadway, perhaps the best-known and most important streets in Denver. The park borders are defined as Bannock Street on the west, Lincoln Street on the east, Colfax Avenue on the north, and 14th Avenue on the south. The institutions surrounding the civic center are generally thought of as part of the Civic Center area, and future plans for the civic center would extend the area further west all the way to Speer Boulevard.

Civic Center is also a neighborhood defined by the Denver city government, but is probably identified in the minds of Denverites as the "Golden Triangle." The borders of this neighborhood are Speer Boulevard on the west and south, Broadway on the east, and Colfax Avenue on the north.

Civic Center has long been the government, arts, history, and learning nexus of both the state of Colorado and the Denver Metropolitan Area. Among the institutions in the Civic Center are Denver Art Museum, and the Denver Public Library’s Central Library along the parks south side, the Colorado State Capitol and the City and County Building of Denver along the east and west axis of the park, the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building on the park’s north side, and the Colorado History Museum and the Colorado State Judicial Building towards the southeast of the park. The Denver Mint lies immediately west of the Civic Center Park across the street from the City and County Building.




Three Tips For Coping With Stress In A Home Business

Everyone comes under stress sometimes and for most of us that is while we are working. Having a boss is stressful enough, but at least the buck stops on his or her table. When you work for yourself you have the stresses of normal workers, but you also have the additional stresses of complying with the law, the taxation system and the unions and the penalties can be very serious if you slip up. Ignorance of the law is no excuse as the judge will say as the gavel comes down and your cheque book comes out.

People deal with their stress in their own ways, but it is valuable to note a few of the popular ways to reduce stress levels in a home business situation. A simple but often very successful method to reduce stress is to have a relevant, but comic poster near-by for you to look at.

My Dad was a builder and on the wall opposite his desk was a poster of a monkey in overalls attempting to put building blocks on top on one another. Underneath it read: “You Do Not Have To Be Mad To Work here, But It Helps”.

It is an old one, but it was in the seventies and the whole point is that whenever he read it, it made him grin. Another poster he had was of a huge tiger stroling through the edge of a jungle clearing. Again inspirational. Others might choose Kipling: “If you can walk with crowds and keep your virtue” et cetera or a passage from the Bible.

Motivational posters, pictures and mantras are very useful, but sometimes you have to have more, because high levels of stress are considered an occupational hazard for people in business for themselves. One thing that I like to have near-by is a small fridge just for me (but I do work alone) and inside it are treats that I only touch when I need to.

There are expensive ice creams, gourmet chocolates and my favourite drinks, including chocomilk, fruit-flavoured spa water and home-made iced tea and iced coffee. If i am stumped, I take a moment out to eat or drink something and relax by looking out of the window. Five minutes later, I feel capable to have another go at the problem.

Some people discover that playing one of the games that comes with most types of Windows for fifteen minutes helps a lot, but I would rather remain productive so I just switch jobs for a while. Like most people in the West these days, I use a broadband connection that is ‘always on’, so email is coming in all the time too.

If I am having a setback with something and the answer just will not appear, I switch over to Outlook and read and reply to a few emails. I find that taking my mind off the immediate problem for a time helps me to refocus, and I have not lost any time because I have to go through the mail at some time in any case.

La Défense is a major business district of the Paris Metropolitan Area and of the Île-de-France region, located in the commune of Courbevoie, and parts of Puteaux and Nanterre, just west of the city of Paris.

La Défense is Europe’s largest purpose-built business district with 560 hectares (5.6 million square metres) area, 72 glass and steel buildings and skyscrapers, 180,000 daily workers, and 3.5 million square metres (37.7 million sq ft) of office space. Around its Grande Arche and esplanade ("le Parvis"), La Défense contains many of the Paris urban area’s tallest high-rises, and is home to no fewer than 1,500 corporate head offices, including those of 15 of the top 50 companies in the world.

The district is located at the westernmost extremity of the ten-kilometre-long Historical Axis of Paris, which starts at the Louvre in Central Paris, and continues along the Champs-Élysées, well beyond the Arc de Triomphe along the Avenue de la Grande Armée before culminating at La Défense. The district is centred in an orbital motorway straddling the Hauts-de-Seine département municipalities of Courbevoie, Nanterre and Puteaux. La Défense is primarily a business district, and hosts only a population of 25,000 permanent residents and 45,000 students. La Défense is also visited by 8,000,000 tourists each year, and houses an open-air museum.

En 1171, Alfonso VIII pone esta zona fronteriza bajo el dominio de la real Orden de Santiago.
En 1178, conquista definitiva de Aranjuez, que se convierte al poco, en residencia de los Grandes Maestres de la Orden. Estos pasan largas temporadas de descanso en el Palacio que construyen en el lugar donde posteriormente se levantaría el Palacio Real. Por este motivo, la cruz de Santiago forma parte del escudo de Aranjuez, aprobado por el Consejo de Ministros el 17 de febrero de 1956.

En la época en que el Tajo era frontera entre cristianos y musulmanes, y tras la formación de las Órdenes Militares, el Rey Alfonso VIII concede el Castillo de Oreja a la Orden de Santiago, en la persona de su Maestre y fundador, Rodrigo Fernández de Fuente Encalada.

Se crea en 1272 la Mesa Maestral de Santiago, que incorpora las tierras de Aranjuez como recreo de los maestres.
A finales del S. XV, el maestre Lorenzo Suárez de Figueroa ordena la construcción de una Casa-Palacio junto a la ría actual, en el lado norte de lo que hoy es el Palacio Real. Fue derribada en el S. XVIII.
La vinculación de Aranjuez con los reyes comienza en el reinado de Isabel I, la cual consigue para Fernando V el nombramiento de administrador vitalicio del Maestrazgo de la Orden de Santiago en 1489. Aranjuez comienza a ser frecuentada por los reyes. Se inician las reformas en la Casa Palacio y en el primitivo Jardín de la Isla: Jardín de la Reina. A la Reina Isabel I le gustaba pasear por él.
En 1520 se nombra a Gonzalo Chacón Alcalde de la Casa Palacio, el cual realiza distintas obras hidráulicas y mejoras en el Sitio.
En 1523, la Dehesa de Aranjuez se convierte en propiedad Real, al formar parte de la Mesa Maestral el Rey Carlos I. Éste había recibido del Papa Adriano VI la dignidad de Maestre de Santiago y la administración de la Mesa Maestral a perpetuidad.
Carlos I, gran aficionado a la caza, acomete reformas y crea el Real Bosque y Casa de Aranjuez, como lugares de ocio y caza. La caza posee un componente fundamental de la educación del príncipe, del rey, lo que permite entenderla como el punto de partida de la asociación de Aranjuez a la cultura en su más amplia concepción.
Entre 1534 y 1543 quedan agregadas a Aranjuez las encomiendas circundantes de Otos, Oreja, Aceca y Alpajés, así como las propiedades del alcaide de la casa palacio, dehesas y tierras de pueblos y nobles.
El Rey Felipe II fue fundamental para el desarrollo de Aranjuez, nombrando Aranjuez Real Sitio en 1560. El Real Bosque crece en notoriedad y tierras, ya en 1550, siendo aún príncipe, había empezado los plantíos de árboles. En 1564 ordena una nueva forma del Jardín de la Isla, ampliando setos de flores, estatuas y fuentes.
Se construyen caces y acequias, se explotan numerosas huertas, se plantan grandes avenidas de chopos, olmos negros, naranjos, jazmines y parras.
Se decide construir, en 1561, un Palacio más acorde con la residencia digna de un monarca bajo la dirección de Juan Bautista de Toledo y Juan de Herrera.
Se prohíbe el asentamiento de poblaciones. El Real Sitio será exclusivo del Monarca.
Los sucesivos monarcas continuaron la obra de Felipe II y fueron modelando Aranjuez a su gusto. Por un lado lo llenaron de monumentos, y por otro impidieron el desarrollo normal de la población, prohibiendo el asentamiento de los pobladores y la edificación. Aranjuez era una monumental finca privada de los reyes.

Serán los Borbones quienes dieron a Aranjuez el último impulso que la convertirían en núcleo cortesano de rango monumental.

El primer Borbón que se asentó en Aranjuez, fue Felipe V. Durante su reinado, e influenciado por su refinada educación francesa, el monarca convirtió la localidad en primavera como marco administrativo de los Reales Sitios establecidos por la Corte itinerante. Comienzan ampliaciones en el Palacio Real, derribando el antiguo Palacio Maestral en 1727. Se establecen setecientas familias al servicio del Rey, por lo que se nombra el cargo de Alcalde Mayor.

Fernando VI da los primeros pasos para engrandecer la incipiente población, permitiendo el libre asentamiento de pobladores. Con la llegada de Santiago Bonavía en 1740, y la ayuda de Alejandro González Velázquez, se realizó una planificación de Aranjuez. En 1747 se inicia el desarrollo urbanístico de la ciudad con una planificación previa, con posteriores aportaciones de Sabatini y Juan de Villanueva. Nuevas calles, plazas y edificios: línea recta, perspectiva, uniformidad y monumentalidad. Normas de edificación para que el conjunto de Aranjuez guarde armonía: altura de las casas, trazado y anchura de la calles, fachadas… Palacios para cortesanos, casas para comerciantes y artesanos, alcantarillado… Se convierte en un centro comarcal, con actividad industrial y comercial.
El antiguo trazado de calles del casco urbano y muchos edificios históricos se mantiene hoy, por lo que se declaró en 1984 Conjunto Histórico Artístico.
Fernando VI era un rey aficionado a los paseos en falúas (embarcaciones reales). Estos paseos serán amenizados con música que cantaba Carlos Broschi Farinelli, acompañado al clave alguna vez por el rey o la reina.
El Rey Carlos III da un auge definitivo en reformas e implantaciones. Se levantan casas, hospicios, capillas, conventos, cuarteles y Casa de Empleados (actualmente Ayuntamiento). Se crea el Real Cortijo de San Isidro y Campo Flamenco en la Dehesa de Otos. Pero el canon con que se gravaba a colonos y arrendatarios era excesivo.
Carlos IV pone fin a la época de esplendor del Real Sitio, construyendo fuentes, la casa del Labrador, los Chinescos, la Casa de Marinos, Casa de Infantes, Palacio de Godoy y de los Duques de Medinaceli. Se puso fin a la época dorada del Real Sitio por la difícil situación a la que había llegado Aranjuez, y que estaba causada por la pésima administración y la nula rentabilidad de las propiedades reales. Esto obligó a una impopular reforma de las ordenanzas de gobierno que permitiese sanear la hacienda y hacer frente a un elevado presupuesto del Real Sitio.
La corte de Carlos IV agradecía con festejos cualquier distracción, como fue el estreno del primer vuelo en globo en los Reales Sitios de Aranjuez.
En 1801, bajo el reinado de Carlos IV, se firma el Tratado de Aranjuez. España se alía con Napoleón para unir sus fuerzas navales contra los ingleses. Este pacto fue aprovechado por el emperador francés para invadir con sus tropas nuestro país tres años después marcando el comienzo de la Guerra de la Independencia.
En 1808 se sucede en Aranjuez el Motín de Aranjuez fruto de las intrigas de Fernando VII contra el Ministro de Carlos IV, Manuel Godoy. Godoy propone a Carlos IV que embarque desde Sevilla a América y se ponga a salvo de las tropas francesas que ocupan España y del propio clima revuelto de esta época de descontento. Fernando VII y sus seguidores se oponen a este plan. En la noche del 17 de Marzo de 1808, la multitud, dirigida por partidarios de Fernando, asaltan la Casa de Godoy, que no es encontrado. En la mañana del 19 de Marzo, Godoy es descubierto y trasladado hasta el Cuartel de Guardias de Corps en medio de una lluvia de golpes. Fernando interviene, impide el linchamiento y consigue que su padre abdique en él a medio día de esa misma jornada. Poco después, el propio Fernando tuvo que dejar la corona en manos de José Bonaparte, hermano de Napoleón, conocido por el mal nombre de Pepe Botella.

Hunting has a fundamental component of education of the prince, the king, allowing understood as the starting point for the association of Aranjuez to the culture in its broadest conception.
Between 1534 and 1543 are added to Aranjuez surrounding parcels Otos, Ear, and Alpajés Aceca well as the properties of the warden of the palace, pastures and agricultural land and noble people.
King Philip II was instrumental in the development of Aranjuez, Aranjuez Royal Site naming in 1560. The Royal Forest grows in notoriety and land, and in 1550, while still a prince, had begun the planting of trees. In 1564 ordered a new form of Garden Island, expanding flowerbeds, statues and fountains.

In 1747 starts the urban development of the city with advance planning, with subsequent contributions from Sabatini and Juan de Villanueva. New streets, squares and buildings: straight line, perspective, consistency and monumentality. Building standards to save all of Aranjuez harmony: height of the houses, layout and width of the streets, facades … Courtly palaces, houses for merchants and artisans, sewage … It becomes a market town, with industrial and commercial activity.
The old layout of urban streets and many historic buildings remains today, so it was declared a Historic Artistic Site in 1984.

It ended the golden era of Royal Site by the difficult situation that had come Aranjuez, and was caused by mismanagement and unprofitable real property. This forced an unpopular reform of government ordinances that would allow the property to clean up and deal with a high budget of the Royal Site.
The court of Charles IV with festivities appreciated any distraction, as was the premiere of the first balloon flight in the Royal Site of Aranjuez.

Keeping Your Home Business Safe

You have probably passed big signs by construction sites that brag about how many days they have gone without a work related or lost time accident. For most businesses and industries, safety is an important part of their business plan as accident costs come straight off the bottom line. Not only do you pay an insurance premium to cover accidents, before the insurance starts paying, you will incur a deductible. The insurance premium and deductible comes from the bottom line, impacting your profits.

If you conduct business in your home office, the possibility of an injury claim increases dramatically with the number of customers. It is not all about the cost as if customers to your business seem to get hurt frequently, it can have a negative effect on your reputation. People may become fearful about visiting you for fear of getting hurt. Then there are those who will come see you, actually hoping to get hurt so they might end up owning your business.

Slip and fall accidents and trips are the most common for most businesses and a home business is not immune to these claims. However, there are steps you can take to reduce the potential for liability. Remember, just because a claim is filed, does not automatically make you and your insurance company responsible for the accident. Most states have laws that protect companies from lawsuits, by mandating that people have to take a certain amount of responsibility for their own actions.

During inclement weather, a company has 24 hours from the conclusion of an event before they are considered responsible for an accident involving a build up of snow and ice in their parking lots or on their sidewalks. If a customer slips on ice in the midst of a heavy winter storm, most courts find that they ventured out at their own risk and the business should not be responsible for their decision.

However, it is in your best interest to make sure you have the materials in place to remove the risk as soon as possible. Do not get caught up in the 24hour window as your customers should be important to you and allowing one of them to hurt because its only been 10hours since the snow stopped may protect you from liability but not from the wrath of the customer.

Most claims from accidents occurring inside your office space can be eliminated if you make sure spills and trip hazards are removed as soon as they happen. Allowing a spill to remain on the floor can be considered willful negligence, making you liable for any injuries that result. If you leave a hazard on the floor without properly warning your customers that a hazard exists, you will being paying the medical expenses for someone who tripped over the hazard.

In the Alley Behind the Old East Liberty II (Astro Pizza)
office home business
Image by real00
Took a photographic walk along the alley behind the business district in East Liberty along Penn Avenue, a stretch that has seen many changes over the decades. I found several stupendous walls reflecting the passage of time and fashion, left raw and exposed because this is a back alley meant for deliveries, trash, etc. and no effort has been made to render them more presentable. (In this case, the front facades of the same buildings are not in especially presentable shape, either). Now that East Liberty has gone upscale in recent years, this kind of quaint connection to the past is likely to be tidied up–a sign of good times, for some anyway, and better times yet to come, but also a loss for those, like me, who find beauty in these untidy places.

This section has a nice remnant from the early 1960s, I would guess, in the Astro Pizza sign. The dull, chipped multitoned red paint on that building provides a sobering contrast to the space age optimism of the cheerfully colored pizza sign. Most recently that place was Yen’s Chinese restaurant, now closed. The building awaits demolition to clear the way for yet another bland modern building with living and office space, to be built by profit-motivated developers capitalizing on the "Target effect," the pervasive reconfiguration of the entire area that took off after the Target store opened across the street a few years ago. The rusty, worn, dead-vine-encrusted building in the middle displays a few of the black block letters from a previous generation.

As I have stated in other posts, as a resident of an adjacent neighborhood, I think much of this development is a great thing. We certainly don’t fault Target–we love having it right there 5 minutes from our house (although they probably negotiated a sweet tax deal with the city). With all the new activity, there are great stores, restaurants, cafes opening all the time. It has become a neighborhood that people with money actually want to live in, whereas in the past it was an area to be avoided, shunned, driven around (in the 1960s the business district was encircled by a wide ring road designed to enable suburban motorists to bypass the congestion and the businesses altogether, whereupon many of the businesses failed, adding to the misery). Eventually no one was ever there unless they happened to live there, in one or another of the subsidized housing projects for people with little or no income. Those projects–the state of the art in urban planning in their day–have just about all been detonated and cleared away. A few of them are still there but will be gone within a year. The ring road has been reconfigured to return the area to a semblance of what it once was, and the new businesses are thriving. The existing residents can no longer afford to live in the neighborhood that has been their home for decades. No one knows for sure where they will go. Many of them are elderly and/or disabled. Their entire family and social circles existed within this very small area. With this in mind, plus the fact that, like this wall, most of the dilapidated ties to the past will disappear, it’s not surprising that I am ambivalent about the forward march of progress.
