Help! Mr Wizard – Time for This One to Come Home {awesome|amazing|Great|Special}

For those of you that may not remember a childhood cartoon, that yielded the statement of this article’s title, it was that of a turtle, that was always getting into trouble, and when he reached a point where he needed help, he would always beckon the call of, Mr. Wizard, to come to his rescue. Well, that is what I think is fitting for those seeking a solution to their financial desires of making money online.

Making money online is a sincere desire, for many a would be entrepreneur, and those that are trying desperately to find a doable deal, that is not being presented by a high-tech guru. You know the kind, where you either need a friend in the software industry, that knows how to set up a successful website with all the right buttons and links that guarantee success, or you fail miserably, after spending good money trying to figure out how to do it.

I’m no Mr. Wizard, but I have been selling products online for several years and I took the road of do-it-yourself, along with all the usual failures and pitfalls, but now I want to give you some insights that may help you avoid some of those time and money wasting attempts to do it the wrong way.

Making money online can be a successful venture provided you know what it takes to be successful. Learning the basics in anything you attempt is essential to a long-term success of what you decide to do or become. Finding those lessons that provide the pathway to a successful venture is often the hardest part.

Take for example; how to make 100 dollars a day, that seems to be a reasonable venture that surely has a doable blueprint. Given the vast knowledge available today online, this should be easy enough to find, or so I thought. There are so many people, that talk a good game, but very few that actually walk the walk they talk about. Learning from others is usually a good source to learn from and a much shorter path as well.

While there are numerous means of making money online and making 100 dollars a day, you need to focus on a given path and follow it, till you see it through and gain the understanding from it, so that you can apply it and pass it on to others as well. Giving back is the right thing to do. Our time on this earth is shorter than we realize and the time we spend here should be shared with our friends and family by passing on that which we have learned along the way.

If we all learn not to hoard or to be greedy, maybe we can reverse the state of our current conditions. There was a time not so long ago, where those of wealth gave back to their workers and shared in their good fortunes. In today’s world, the wealthy have become greedy and stingy, thus our economy has suffered considerably because of it.

Floating Screwdrivers For Your Marine Toolbox {awesome|amazing|Great|Special}

I sometimes imagine myself living on a sailboat. Waking up every morning to the gentle sound of the water must be a very soothing experience. The freedom of being able to move your home at will sounds like an exciting idea, too. However, boats are mechanical watercrafts that occasionally fail. If you are the adventurous type and happen to be “on the hook” when a boat part, like a propeller, needs to be fixed, what will you do?

“That is simple,” you would likely say. “Just grab your tools and get on with it.” However, it is not that easy to do when you are in the water. Many times in the past, I often drop screwdrivers whenever I am doing even the simplest of things like connecting speaker wires to amplifier terminals. I do admit that I am not the handiest in our neighborhood when it comes to tools, but people sometimes fumble when using their instruments, you know. Imagine what it would be like if your screwdriver slips out of your wet, slippery hands while you are holding a boat part and trying to float the right way up. I guess it would be quite problematic, right?

Well, not if you use floating screwdrivers. I really like these tools. They are neat. These tools are designed to be used in doing repairs in or near the water. Whether you are fixing a boat or a boat dock, these floating screwdrivers can save you countless headaches. Even if you are on deck, there will be times when your tools will slip or roll over and fall into the water.

This is not a problem with floating screwdrivers. I also like the fact that the handles of these floating screwdrivers have bright colors. You will not find it hard to spot them floating around on the water even late in the afternoon. You need these floating screwdrivers if there is a chance that you will be doing repairs anywhere near water.

I can only imagine what other type of tools they could make floatable beside screwdriver. Some would definitely be more practical and useful than always. A floating hammer or pliers would be useful as well. Sounds like I need to do some more research and see what other floating tools I can find.

DIY Murphy Beds – Dare To Do Your Own DIY Murphy Bed {awesome|amazing|Great|Special}

For starters, let’s talk a bit about William Lawrence Murphy, the man responsible for this modern space saving solution. Little did he know that Murphy beds would sweep the world with his innovating idea of saving space and yet having a great looking area when folded away. He was a lady’s man and wanted to impress them when he invited them into his home, but lived in a small home. So he invented the first wall bed that would hide and make his home feel neat and tidy to impress the girls.

Piston mechanisms are used to operate them by using two of them. The less common use air pressure to raise and support in order to lower the bed frame. It has the ability to lock when the bed is vertical up hidden in the wall. This lock is a safety feature, however a very accurate installation must be achieved. Old traditional Murphy bed systems use steel springs. Springs are the only mechanism that the Murphy beds should use because they are heavy duty and bring measured balance. These make the lifting and lowering of your wall bed lightweight.

So let’s talk about the benefits of owning a Murphy bed. To name a few:

  • More space available instantly for your bedroom
  • More free floor area
  • Different decor for your room
  • Choose from different styles – horizontal or vertical
  • Simplify your life, less time making up the bed
  • Many options such as, bedrooms, den, living room, tiny houses, guest houses, vacation homes, rental homes, shipping container homes, houseboats, cottages, etc.

Save lots of money by building your own Murphy bed. A ready to install Murphy bed could be more than $2,000 easily. On the other hand, a DIY Murphy bed is going through the trouble of building it, but many people are very handy and have a talent doing these kind of projects. There are hardware kits that might be found for $500 approximately, but others that include the wood and hardware could be around $1,000. So there is a variety of options and prices.

Some people have the money to do it full blast custom made, but many others prefer to make it happen on their own while saving plenty of money to use for other needs. Don’t be frightened by the wood work as you can have these cut to the required measurements by your local hardware and lumberyard store. The same construction details that go into a twin, double/full or queen size Murphy bed are identical except for the sizes. Funny to say, that no matter what the size is, you will find the cost for any of the sizes to be the same.

One of the best options is that they are available in a vertical or horizontal setup. Very convenient for planning well the available floor space that is available.

Picture the place to install your Murphy bed, whether in a room or in a living room inside a tiny house and enjoy the comfort and great space saving setup. Underneath your Murphy bed you can also install a desk shelf that will appear as you close up your bed into the wall and have a working desk, then add a chair and you’re good to go with another advantage and now you’ll have a double-duty bed and desk.

There are many ideas and images you can look up by using Google images and trigger your thoughts as to a variety of things you will be able to do by using a Murphy bed.
