Starting a Homemade Pasta Making Business

The first thing that you should know if you are starting a homemade pasta making business is the basic process of making fresh pasta. This kind of pasta is made from fresh ingredients and has a shorter shelf life compared to the commercially made or dry pasta.

Manufacturing fresh pasta is better because the business owner can tailor fit it to the consumer’s needs and demands in terms of the shape, size, color and flavor of the finished product.

Below are some suggested steps in starting a homemade pasta making business, categorized into: Initial Stage, Regulatory Compliance and Marketing.

Initial Stage

• Create and perfect your own recipe that you think will sell and will come out the same way every time you prepare it. Have your family and friends taste them and ask for feedback.

• As in any business, when you are starting a homemade pasta making business, prepare a business plan which would contain the goals and business projections that you have set. This will guide you in the actual running of the business and to help you gauge if the business is doing good or not.

• Purchase your ingredients and supplies like bags and packaging supplies. Decide on how you intend to package your homemade pasta. You could pack it in a freezer-safe bag where the consumers can freeze it, refrigerate it or eat it immediately. It could also come in cellophane bags. You could search online for bulk suppliers for these items. You will be able to save money and will help create a professional and consistent look. Design your own labels on your computer and print them out or you could ask a professional designer to create them for you and order your labels in bulk. Make sure to include the cooking and serving instructions in the labels.

• Purchase equipments that you don’t already have to make the preparation of large batches of your recipes a lot faster and easier.

• Determine a wholesale price list for all your products. Factor in all the cost that you will be incurring in producing you homemade pasta like the ingredients, facility cost, packaging and labor cost. This should be drawn up in a spreadsheet form which would include the retail as well as bulk prices for each of your product. This information will be useful to your future retailers because it will show the proof of the profit they will be making if they sell your homemade pasta in their stores.

Regulatory Compliance

• Since you will be starting a homemade pasta making business and producing a food product, you need to get in touch with your local and state health departments to inquire about permit and licensing requirements.

• Make sure that you could sell the products that are produced from your home kitchen because different states have different laws regarding homemade food products. These information are available online from your state’s Department of Health website or you can ask for a copy. Try to check on local zoning laws if operating a business from your home is allowed. As of 2010, only 13 states allow the operation of home-based cooking business and they are: Alabama, Iowa, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and Utah. So it is important that you check into these before starting your business.

• Most states allow the sale of homemade food products at farmers‘ markets and flea markets without the necessary state licensing and inspection. They allow the sale of these products at these places only. Before starting a homemade pasta making business and deciding to sell your products in these venues, make sure that your state does not have any label requirements, like this label for example, „Made in a home kitchen and not inspected by the (insert state) Department of Agriculture.“ The label should indicate the product name and the ingredients that you used and check the cottage laws of your state about the requirements of home labeling.

• Most of the home based cooking operations are either sole proprietorship or partnerships. If you plan to make your business as a source of livelihood, a DBA (Doing Business As) license would be the best route if you will name your business. As of 2011, the registration fee is between $25 and $35. The DBA registration is not required though if your business name contains your legal name. Your state may also have other food processing licensing regulations which are peculiar to your homemade pasta making business.

Marketing

• Your main competitor in the homemade pasta business is the commercial pasta. Therefore, it is not a good idea to compete with these manufacturers in the supermarkets and groceries because this is not the right avenue to sell your products. You must do the traditional and tried and tested marketing strategies to attract your customers like posters and handing out flyers. Make your business be known in your community by giving out samples of pasta dishes with your fresh pasta or give them for free at community gatherings or meetings. It is also good to custom-made your fresh pasta during these events in order to cater to the individual needs of the customers. If you are into making healthy pasta, you can try selling your products at your local health stores.

• Other possible places to sell your products are the local farmers‘ markets, craft fairs and flea markets. A lot of people like the taste of homemade goods like fresh pasta but just doesn’t have the time to prepare them themselves. You can give them that homemade taste that they are looking for. During holidays and special occasions, many people love give local and homemade food products as gifts.

• You can also market your food products by creating your own brochures, catalogs and price lists and offering your products at retail outlets that sell local products. Draw up a list of your target retailers in your community with the name and contact information of the person who is in charge of purchasing.

• Try to ask if your local Italian restaurants purchase pre-made pastas because this could be a possible joint venture between your business and their restaurants.

• The internet is also a good venue to feature your products on a national scale. If possible, you could build your own website to help your business grow.

Hope these steps will help you in starting a homemade pasta making business.

How to Get Rich Online – Start an Online Flea Market Easily

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

With so many opportunities on getting rich on the internet, it is easy to lose sight of the ones that have proven to be effective. Those are the ones that have a community support group that provides ongoing help to the market they serve. What I am talking about is a flea market on the internet that anyone can set up. If you ever had a garage sale or know anyone who has, why not partner with them to launch one your own. It is easier now than before.

Community Support For Online Flea Market Vendors Is The Key To Success

When was the last time you got involved with an online business opportunity only to find out that there is no support for their members? This is a big problem for a lot of online business owners especially the newbies with practically no internet marketing experience at all when it comes to learning how to get rich online. Setting up the business online by way of a website is only part of the equation. Your customers need to know that you exist. You need traffic to your flea market website. Without it, you are fishing without bait.

The great thing about launching a flea market online is that there are literally tons of vendors from many different niche markets that have gotten together to create a social networking community with its intended purpose to serve their members.

Let’s say you are in the candle business. The flea market community will actually help you get your business in their listings for more exposure. They even provide all the marketing tools that you can use to leverage the power of the internet to get traffic to your website.

What About Marketing Your Business On eBay And Craigslist?

There is nothing wrong with that approach. Let me remind you that competition is really fierce due to the fact that eBay and Craigslist encompasses an increasingly wide range of market niches in so many different categories that is difficult to keep up with. For example, jobs, real estate, businesses, housing, services, and etc. None of these pertain to selling flea market items.

Despite the fact that Craigslist and eBay gets over 4 billion page views a month, you are better off finding a tighter niche market with less competing traffic to serve your market more effectively and efficiently. By having your store listed in a community website that is focused on selling the typical stuff found in local flea markets, you have a better chance of being found because shoppers go there for one purpose only: to buy something from you that they want.

Building Long Lasting Relationships Has Always Been The Proven Formula For Online Flea Market Success

If you have gone to one in your local area, how often do you visit the same booth of the person who sold you some great stuff. That is the beauty of doing business at a flea market. Not exactly a way to get rich compared to online.

Have you ever been to festivals in your area? Street vendors make tons of money selling stuff ranging from used merchandise, products, and food. People who frequent these festivals are in the buying frame of mind. And many vendors have branded themselves successfully by being there every single year for that particular event, capitalizing on the repeat business from former customers.

Now just imagine how powerful this concept alone can be if it is applied to the online world? The strong sense of community is established very easily through forum discussions on a wide range of topics pertaining to stuff sold in flea markets. Vendors participating in these discussions always get a sizable amount of traffic to their website resulting in massive sales of products.

Building a Panelized Home – Pros & Cons of Building With Panelized Walls

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

Panelized framing walls can be a godsend. Or, they can be a pain in the butt. With a little forethought and planning, you can ensure that you experience the advantages.

 

Most home builders use some form of panelization. Framers on site at a „stick-built“ home, typically build the framework in panels and tilt them up and into place. But, that’s not what I’m talking about. A panelized home is where a factory pre-builds these panels, in various lengths, and delivers them to the building site.

 

Will Pre-Panelized Walls Work for You?

 

If you’re an owner-builder who is going to be involved in some labor and looking for labor cost savings, panelization may be ideal for you. If, on the other hand, you intend to hire a crew of experienced professionals to frame a complicated home structure, you should probably stay away from pre-panelizing unless the framers prefer and ask for them.

 

The following Pros and Cons will help you decide whether or not to use them as well as ensure quality if you do.

 

PRO: Speed. A well panelized home that the on-site framers are prepared to work with, can allow for the home to be framed in as little as one third the normal framing time. The benefit is money saved.

 

CON: Shipping & Handling. Panels must be shipped to your site … sometimes from great distances. This can be costly and cause damage during shipment. Also, the panels can be difficult to store, move around the site, and then into place – especially on two story homes.

 

PRO: Many Panel Choices. Traditional 2×4 & 2×6 wood studs are popular but you can choose steel framing studs, SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels), and other types as well.

 

CON: Dealing With Issues. Rarely is a panelized framing package error free. These mistakes will drive an experienced framing crew crazy if they were not in favor of using pre-built panels. And, getting the manufacturers of the panels to correct their errors quickly can be a real chore.

 

PRO: Quality & Uniformity. Panels are made in controlled environments to exacting specifications and usually utilize the better quality materials. They often incorporate better and more uniform framing practices than many homes built on-site. These advantages can give you a stronger home in the face of nature, and a more square home that makes it easier to hang cabinets and doors, and lay tile and wood floors.

 

CON: Difficult to Ensure Quality. While the advantages stated are extremely valuable, it’s difficult to ensure that you’ll receive what is promised. You may need experienced professionals to help you analyze their framing methods as well as inspect what is delivered to you.

 

PRO: Reducing Onsite Waste. Panelizing can be a green building approach. Limiting waste and/or using Structural Insulated Panels give you that advantage.

 

CON: Panelized Homes are not Always Kits. Just ordering a panelized framing package is not going to streamline your entire homebuilding process. If that’s what you want, use a kit home. Kit homes usually panelize your walls but panelization factories don’t always provide complete kits. Be sure you know what you’re ordering.

 

You Do Have Options

 

As you can see, you have options. But it pays to remember that you also have the option to not use pre-panelized framing walls. The advantages may be insignificant or even non-existent in your situation.

 

My advice is to honestly assess your situation and goals. Keep researching your options. Hire a home-building coach to help decide. Then go in the direction that best serves your needs.

Curb Appeal Ideas for Homes on the Market

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

There are simple and affordable ideas to add charm, beauty and uniqueness to your home without breaking the bank. Your home needs to stand out from the hundreds of other homes on the market in order to increase foot traffic of potential buyers. If you are not able to complete the work yourself, you may want to hire a reputable company to help.

The condition of the front door is the first issue to be addressed. Make sure it is clearly visible from the road by cutting down any tree limbs hindering the view. Make sure it has a fresh coat of paint, no cracks in the glass or tears in the screen. If you are showing your home during a holiday like Christmas, add special touches that reflect the season. Create a fresh wreath of evergreen boughs and add a few silk poinsettias for a splash of color. Examine the house numbers and mailbox area, making sure they are in good working condition, painted, and clearly visible.

If you have a concrete drive and walk with a few cracks and you have a few months before the house goes on the market, plant sedum. Incorporate composted topsoil into the crevices and plant a few sedum plants to add softness and charm. After the plant is established, it will be drought tolerate. Sedum grows in the full sun; varieties have different foliage color and most plants offer spring blooms.

If there are areas of your lawn that are brown and patchy, don’t fight it. Turn those areas into plant beds. You want the first impression to reflect to the buyer that the front landscape/garden needs no additional work. Even if you have no extra funds to fill the new plant bed with shrubs, it is better than looking at unhealthy turf. An affordable way to add interest is placing a bench in the middle, create a 3′ wide path of light, cedar mulch to the seating area and mulch the rest of the bed with pine needles or mini nuggets. Two different mulches will add contrast and interest to the space at a very low cost.

A fresh application of mulch is an affordable way to spruce up the front garden. Pine needles are the least expensive with one bale covering a 5’x5′ area. The needles should be a nice amber color and be tucked in where they meet the grassy areas. A beveled edge can be created by a spade shovel to define plants beds and turf areas adding a crisp, manicured look.

Existing shrubs and trees should be in good condition. Prune out any unhealthy limbs and make sure the top of the shrubs do not exceed the bottom of the front windows. There should also be at least 1 foot between the shrub and the house. This is a safety and maintenance issue for the potential buyer.

If you’ve added semi-permanent structures such as a fence bordering the front walk, a birdhouse on a 4×4 post, or a flag-pole in the middle of the lawn you may want to remove these personal touches in order to keep it clean and simple. These additions could be viewed as non-functioning eye sores to the new home buyer. It is better to keep the front landscape free of clutter with minimal touches of personality. Ultimately, you are looking for another family to move in, so try not to dominate the landscape with your favorite things. It is acceptable to add a few personal touches that you can take with you.

Pots flanking the front entryway are a good addition for a splash of color and hint of charm that can easily be removed. It is always best to go bigger with the pot size than going smaller. You can either do one pot on either side of the front door or group 3 of various sizes on both sides. By grouping 3 different sized pots you are creating a more relaxed, informal style. If you have a more formal and manicured front garden, you will want to place 2 symmetrical pots on either side of the door and insert an evergreen shrubs. Keeping the shrubs in the pots you purchased them in will make packing up easier when you sell your home.

Potential buyers are going to drive by in the evening hours to witness what happens in your neighborhood after the sun sets. A low cost lighting system can be purchased from your local hardware store and taken with you when you leave. Add the up lights to accent a tree, statuary or exterior home details to liven the landscape in the evening hours. It is not recommended to line up lights in a plane runway style or the use of holiday lights.

It is encouraging to hear potential buyers saying, „I can put my hammock between those 2 trees“ or „I am going to create a wildflower bed in that natural area“. Put the needs of the buyer before the needs of yourself when selling your home. Let your home be the vision of someone else’s dream and sell, sell, sell.

How to Write a Short Story About School Life: An Example

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

When you write a story about school or school life, you should think it from the end. A short story is different from a novel which sometimes finds its own way when writing it; you need a plan and a structure that is almost complete, if you want to make it a good story.

Take the example of one important action (for a short story, this is sufficient!): a boy of 12 years has been thrown out of his school. The question is, how to make an exciting and understandable story that ends with this negative event.

This is the moment to construct a flow of action leading to his exclusion. Of course, it means that you think the story from its ending, but you write it from the beginning. Use your experience and your fantasy to find reasons or motives why such a young boy might be excluded from his school.

You know some central elements and patterns that can lead to it: very bad behaviour, being often absent without any excuse, bad performance and grades, destroying something, and other grave problems. You need to look for really serious aspects, otherwise the story cannot be logical or understandable to the readers.

Imagine a class conference with all the teachers and the director where they talked only about this one boy. What did they say there? How did the teachers judge him? Were they looking for hints towards an improvement? Was it a question of sympathy? What was the form teacher’s opinion? Was there a teacher who stated that it was not right to send him home forever?

Try to search for other facts in his situation, his life. Normally, the teachers will be right when they find that the behaviour of a pupil or a student is intolerable. But the task of an author is, I believe, to look at the things behind the visible action. What are his conditions at home like? Has he got friends who play with him, help him? How do his siblings act towards him?

Maybe you can find some serious problems in the family or in his daily life beyond school. Maybe his father is an alcoholic, his mother is drug addicted – or his best friend was killed in a car crash? Maybe he is very unhappy with a problem he cannot solve on his own?

Managing this background question, an author of a short story about school can help to explain problematic behaviour and bad performance of a student, without simply putting the blame on someone. So the focus can be set on the solving of a problem – even if the story only makes the problem visible.

If these relevant aspects are part of your plan, you can write the story, no matter where you begin: with the exclusion of the boy, with the class conference or with the decisive reason of his misery. You can write a successful story now!

The Best Way to Sell a Run Down House

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

Are you living in a house that needs serious repairs? Have you ever considered the idea of ​​selling it? This might be a difficult decision to make. In fact, most home owners are stuck between two choices: either they sell their house with no profits at all, or spend some cash on renovations and repairs. The latter is a natural step because all prefer to move into homes which are in perfect conditions rather than ugly houses. If you are one of the many who are sick of their run down homes, then you must consider the idea of ​​selling your house to the buyers of ugly houses.

You might have a property which is not in a salable condition, and you are thinking of making repairs in it. Yet, give that decision a second thought as it might be way too expensive for you. Ugly houses can not be elevated to a selling standard by just applying paint to them. These homes call for structural repairs, and, in some cases, buying a brand new house can be cheaper than the long list of renovations you will have to make.

Moreover in the buyers' market, there are very few who are prepared to invest in property which is in need of repairs. Yet all is not lost yet. You just have to reach the right place where you can sell ugly houses according to the existing market rates. Once you reach it, you won't have to worry about repair costs anymore. Besides, you will be getting profits on the sales of your property.

Another thing that you should know is that many professional property developers, who use to buy such homes, are keeping away from the market due to the risk factor. They only invest in property that is in semi-perfect condition. This leaves only one option and that is to sell your home to an ugly houses buyer company.

The best thing about ugly houses buyer companies is that they can purchase almost any home. Yet don't start thinking that they are doing you a favor. It's all pure business, and these companies are in it for the profits promised to them. They also have this DIY project in place, which means that you, the homeowner, don't have to spend a single penny on renovations before selling the house. You simply leave all the repairs to these buyers of ugly houses.

It might also interest you to know that many home owners reaped incredible benefits by selling their ugly houses to such companies. These are the companies that specifically specialize in buying such a property. Regardless of the condition of your home, they can pay you the whole amount in a short frame of time (usually a fortnight). What more can you ask for?

Well, here's another incentive that makes people sell their ugly houses to these companies: the guarantee of getting a sale. They take care of almost everything including things like legal paper work and their fees. This ensures a hassle free sale of your home. With all these reasons and more, remember to consider an ugly house buyer the next time you get sick of your run down home.

Title Companies Vs Real Estate Lawyers

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

Is a real estate lawyer a better choice than a title company when it comes to selling your home? You can choose any one of the two but you should first be aware of the difference between real estate lawyers and title companies. Here is some information about both the entities and whose services can benefit you most.

Real estate lawyers

Real estate lawyers specialize in laws relating to real estate and make sure that your interests as a seller are met in the transaction. These lawyers can act as escrow agents as they can hold your earnest money, down payments as well as help you with the requisite documentation. These attorneys can also help you understand the legalities involved in the sale transaction, the offer made by the buyer and your rights as a seller.

An attorney can also handle a closing in case the lender's lawyer does do that. Every real estate lawyer has two most important responsibilities.

• To advise on the documentation process of the transaction
• To represent you at a closing

Besides these two important services, an attorney also negotiates any modifications in the purchase contract that the seller wants to incorporate. Preparing the seller's deed, another crucial aspect, is also taken care of by the attorney. The attorney you hire will also accompany you on your meeting with the client / buyer at the time of settlement. He / she will also advise you on the tax implications involved in your home or property sale.

Title companies

Title companies are insurance agencies that represent title insurance companies. Such companies insure titles to lenders and buyers by ensuring that a title is free from any encumbrance that can cause financial loss.

The title company assures the buyer that he / she can get his / her title on the home or property with no liens against it. The availability of a title on the particular home / property is made clear and vouched for by a title company. In the process, such an entity protects the rights and interests of both parties in question.

Usually, most title companies insure a closing with the help of a lawyer to fulfill certain requirements. Closings also depend on the area you are living in. Toronto natives can hire the services of a real estate lawyer for sale closings.

Keep the following things in mind when you sell your property:

Title companies can hold the down payment and close your home without additional costs. Also, there is a possibility that title companies may give you a discount on your title insurance if you had previously used their services to either refinance or buy your home or property. Lawyers can also close your home / property sale and hold your down payment but may charge an additional fee.

A lawyer can charge a higher fee to write a contract. In cases of simple transactions, this can complicate negotiations. But in most other property sale transactions, the services of a real estate lawyer can prove invaluable.

Learn the 5 Main Steps of Commercial Title Transactions

Immobilie bewerten, Immobilie Wert, Immobilienrechner, Verkaufsrechner, Immobilienwertermittlung Tel: 06227-399170 Handy: 0176-2116-9990 eMail: info@heidelbergerwohnen.de Internet: www.heidelbergerwohnen.de

While every commercial real estate transaction is different, a title company role in commercial real estate transactions may be broken down into 5 main steps:

Title Commitment – Also known as a title commitment, the initial commitment is the first stage of securing insurance and beginning the property ownership search process. Commercial title obligations, provided by the commercial title insurance company, lay out the conditions of the title insurance policy. This policy details the exact steps the agency will take to give the commercial real estate a "good title opinion", including any measures the title company may need to take to resolve preexisting ownership disputes, record errors, encumbrances of liens.

Title & Property Search – Before a title insurance policy can be issued, insurance agencies must first draft an "abstract of title". The abstract provides essential details regarding the history of the land title, revealing any liens, encumbrances, record errors or ownership disputes. In order to draft an abstract, insurance companies hire lawyers and / or underwriters to perform a thorough property search, also known as a property search. This search examines the property's entire chain of ownership. If any liens, encumbrances or other problems are found on the commercial land title, the title agency works to resolve these issues in order to issue a good opinion. Once the real estate title is cleared from any problems, it is deemed "insurable".

Escrow Service & Transaction Coordination – Agencies work behind the scenes of real estate transactions to coordinate and facilitate record filing, document preparation and financial transactions, mediating between the real estate buyer, the lender and the seller. One of the most important of these financial transactions is escrow service. Title insurance companies often provide escrow services in conjunction with other title services, acting as a third party by accepting the loan amount from the lender and holding it in escrow for the buyer until the property closes.

Closing Service – Closing services for commercial real estate closings are often provided the title insurance agency, which typically hosts the closing at the agency's own office. The buyer, seller, closing agent and sometimes lender attend the closing, at which the settlement statement, purchase contract, loan papers, insurance policy, property insurance, land title and other documents are signed. Closing costs and down payments are also required by the buyer at the closing.

Final Title Insurance Policy – At the closing, the title company finally offers the buyer (and sometimes lender) an insurance policy. The title insurance policy insures the property owner for the cost of legal defense should the title be attacked in court; commercial title insurance also vouches to compensate for financial or property asset loss (up to a specified amount) due to preexisting liens or ownership disputes.
