Father’s Day has been celebrated for over 100 years. It’s also an event celebrated in many countries around the world, although at different times of the year. In North America and the United Kingdom, Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June.
Help dad enjoy the day. Perhaps you’ll let him sleep in this morning, or perhaps you won’t badger him over something you’d normally badger him over. Whatever it is, let it be his day. Some nice ways to start it include:
- Bringing him the newspaper to read in bedMa
- king his favorite pot of coffee
Make it a family event.
Father’s Day is by nature a family event. Use this opportunity to get everyone in the family together for a fun day. Think about including all the dads in your family, not just your own father. Could your celebration include husbands, would-be future dads, your uncles, and brothers? If so, do it—the more the merrier! And don’t forget step-fathers—they’re important too. You don’t have to remain at home; you could go to the beach, a local park, a favorite spot of dad’s!
Consider building the celebration around an activity you all can enjoy. Some ideas include:
- Having a family picnic
- Enjoying a family barbecue
- Celebrate Father’s Day
- Taking dad to a favorite sporting event
When it comes to making gifts for Father’s Day, perhaps steer clear of the traditional store-bought gifts of tie and socks. He’s probably still got last year’s socks stuffed at the back of the drawer. Expensive or typical gifts are not necessary, but the time and effort you put in to create a personalized tribute, will be deeply appreciated. Instead, let your own creative abilities shine and make him something special:

Starting a business will be hard. It can be extremely rewarding, but first it will be hard. The only way you will be able to push through, and make your new business successful through all the hard parts and long hours, is if you are passionate about what you are doing. Follow your dreams and use your knowledge. Your passion and knowledge are the best places to start in choosing your new business.
You have to know your business
Has anyone ever told you that something is “a sure thing”? Chances are, as you consider your entrepreneurial options, someone will try to tell you that opening a particular business is “a sure thing”—don’t listen. Nothing is sure, and you are much better off making choices about your business (and by extension, your income) that are based on your own knowledge and interests—not someone else’s.
In the end, customers will only part with their hard-earned money in your business if you can convince them that they’re going to get their money’s worth by buying from you, and in order to do that, you’ll need to know everything there is to know about what you’re selling.
Follow your resume…
If you already have years of experience in a particular field, starting a business in that field gives you many advantages. You can make good use of your skills and previous training, your network of contacts, and your knowledge of the industry. You may even already know your first customers. And if you need funding to start your new business, it can be much easier to find when your resume backs up your new venture: banks and investors see a proven track record, and a safer bet.
For instance, if you are an experienced executive chef, and have managed a restaurant for years, starting your own restaurant will be easier for you. You will know suppliers, and vendors. You will know how to build menus and order food. You will also know what people like and don’t like when it comes to food. And when you go to the bank, and the loan officer sees your resume, he/she will know you have the experience to back up what is traditionally a very risky business.
