The Role Tourism Plays in Local Economies

Before we get to the nitty gritty...have you ever been to Cape Cod? I have, with "he who shall not be named" Ya know, back in the day! I loved it so. Very peaceful and calming. Just what I actually. Anyway check out this sponsored post!  Tell me what you think. The role of Cape Cod tourism in the local economy is huge. Tourist towns have a large dependence on the money that flows into the city through tourists. Because tourist towns rely on the tourism dollars, they will see some wider swings in their economy than a town that does not rely on tourist revenue. This means they have to be extra careful in how they plan the future for their town. Having a strong reserve for down years is critical to the town. Marketing Is Critical for Tourist Towns     One aspect that every tourist town knows is vital to their existence is marketing. A tourist town must continue to market. If people do not know, or forget, what a town like that has to offer, they will

Working Through a Child Custody Attorney

As many of my long time readers know, my older boys are from the Bobster's first marriage. Last summer Bob had to go for child custody of his 14yo and he received it. It's important to remember the bottom line if the happiness of the child. I thought this guest post would shed some light on the situation. Divorce is never an easy thing. However, it becomes a lot more complicated when there are children involved. In a best-case scenario, the mother and father both recognize the need for their children to have both parents and work together to make that happen. In a worst-case scenario, both parents become angry at each other and hold their children hostage to try to get what they want from the other party. In either case, it is best to get a San Jose child custody attorney to help you through the process. Even when both parents agree to let each other see the children, trying to do what it best for them, it can change down the road. Having an attorney help sort thr

Useful Facts about MBA Degree

I do have plans to go back & get my Masters on day. In library science. For now, though I am raising my family.    I thought this Guest Post would really bring home as to why it's important to get your MBA.   Earning your MBA in Colorado is a step toward a more satisfying job, better income, and an overall career growth. The graduates of MBA programs usually earn 50% more than they did before pursuing the degree. Here are some facts you should keep in mind if you decide to apply for an MBA. Prior Education While many people believe that to pursue an MBA one must have an undergraduate degree in business, this is not the case. MBA programs were originally established to meet the needs of working professionals, such as scientists and engineers, who were promoted into management roles without having prior leadership experience. An MBA degree would help them fill that gap and become successful in their new positions. Graduates of any discipline can apply to be an M

Dress Up Is Not Just for Halloween

Although I have boys, I do have nieces and I remember being a little girl! Dress up, for boys or girls is always fun.  That's why I am letting this guest post happen! How fun! When people think of little girls playing dress up, they think of them wearing their mom’s high-heeled shoes, lip stick on their faces, and maybe wearing a big hat and sunglasses. Wearing grandmas and moms’ old cloths is not what children want when it comes to dress up. When they want to play dress up, they want to look like princesses or a favorite cartoon character. What is even more astonishing is that make believe dress up is not just for little girls any more. Little boys love to play dress up too and be like their favorite super hero or cartoon characters! If you are looking for a Snow White outfit in a size 3, or a Spiderman outfit in a size 4, and it is not close to the Halloween season, then you are going to have a hard time finding that special dress-up outfit for your child or grand

Guest Post: The Importance of Swim Lessons for Young Kids

This is a special guest post that is near & dear to my heart. Cheeks is starting swim lessons this week through his camp. Kids and water do not always mix well. Far too many kids drown every year because they did not know how to swim. Ironically, too many parents are unaware of how young their kids can learn how to swim. Putting kids in swim lessons at a very young age can help them to become good swimmers early in their lives. The more kids that know how to swim, the fewer drownings there will be. Helping Kids Overcome the Fear of Water     The best thing that any parent can do is to introduce their babies to water early. If they are accustomed to being in the water while being held by someone they trust, then they will become accustomed to water. Of course, there needs to be a healthy respect for water and the dangers it can pose, but a child that fears the water will not remain calm in an emergency situation when or if they need to. If your child already had
