AUTOMATING THE TIMESHEET PROCESS - 11/15/11
If you’ve ever worked at a place where you have to track your time and invoice clients, then you know how annoying the process can be. Oftentimes getting this information together can take up a lot of time itself for businesses, and a lot of the software currently out there is outdated and hard to use. TimeshEASY aims to solve that problem by bringing you an easy-to-use web product that streamlines time recording and invoicing processes.
TimeshEASY offers tons of helpful features specifically created to make your business operations easier. Their system gives you a simple, user-friendly way to enter time against jobs and projects, and then creates a professional, custom invoice that can then be sent to your clients. The invoice is also immediately sent over to your preferred accounting system, like QuickBooks, so that the data will be stored for your records. TimeshEASY can even communicate with payroll systems like ADP and Paychex in order to calculate your payroll for you. It doesn’t get easier than that folks!
TimeshEASY is all about creating an integrated system for time, invoicing and payroll, so that you can spend more time actually doing the work you’re tracking. So if you’re a small business, or even a huge staffing firm, and you’re tired of spending hours and hours on old school timesheets, check them out.

HAPPY 236TH BIRTHDAY MARINE CORPS! - 11/10/11
When thinking of reasons to use IWearYourShirt.com, very few businesses do whatClearedJobs.Net do. Each of their four previous days have been to celebrate something involving our armed forces. Yes, they want their company message shared, but they also want to make sure we take a moment to thank the men and women who protect our freedoms.
So today, we wish our Marine Corps friends a Happy 236th Birthday. As a company owned by a Marine Corps Veteran, ClearedJobs.Net appreciates our armed forces more than most and we’re glad to help spread the word. ClearedJobs.Net is a career site where job seekers can post their resume, search for security cleared jobs, get career advice (interview tips, resume advice, etc) and register for Cleared Job Fairs. ClearedJobs.Net is free for job seekers, but a current or active security clearance is required.
Along with supporting our armed forces, ClearedJobs.Net supports a number of charities each year. This year includes Operation Jump Start, Transition Assistance Program for Survivors, Knights of Heroes and the Wounded Warrior EOD two-day bike ride. On November 17 they’ll also be promoting Toys for Tots at their Cleared Job Fair. If you live in the Springfield, Virginia area, feel free to stop by the Cleared Job Fair and drop off some toys!
Join us in saying Happy 236th Birthday today!
HOW TO BE A BETTER PARENT WITH TIRED OF YELLING - 11/09/11
Tantrums. Messes. Fighting. Stalling. Disrespect. Whining. AARGH! Life with kids can make you want to scream. While none of us shirt wearers have kids of our own, we know what they look like and have seen/heard them screaming in public places. That’s whereTiredofYelling.com comes in.
Most parenting methods recommend the use of rewards (such as giving stickers, candy or iPhones) and punishment (such as taking away stickers, candy or limiting data usage on iPhones) to get cooperation from children. These strategies statistically only work for a very short period of time and can raise everyone’s blood pressure. Tired of Yelling replaces threats, bribes, loss of privileges, time-out and grounding with effective, nurturing skills. Kids raised with this approach become self-motivated and self-disciplined, making better choices throughout childhood and beyond.
Aviva Schwab, M.Ed. is the mastermind behind Tired of Yelling, is a mom and a veteran parenting expert. When Aviva was raising her own 2 kids, parenting was so much fun that she and her husband used to “fight” over who got to pick them up from school (even when they were teenagers…).
The Tired of Yelling method uses logical consequences instead of yelling. When children experience the consequences of their actions, they begin to make good choices about their behavior. The MP3 download from Tired of Yelling gives potential parents (and current parents) the instructions to make raising kids easy and fun.
Now there finally are instructions for kids!
NEW PRODUCTS FROM ROCKIN’ GREEN SOAP - 11/08/11
Our friends at Rockin’ Green Soap are back with 3 brand new products:
- Melody: An odor neutralizer and air freshener room spray. What do you want your shoes, pillows, clothes and other stuff to smell like? Something terrible or watermelons, orchids, lavender mint and other fun scents? Melody is made from safe, phosphate-free ingredients and contains no fillers or enzymes, ensuring that it’s good for the planet and safe for use on all fabrics.
- Groupies: Potato Dryer Balls. Yep, it’s exactly what you think. Dryer balls made using natural materials, such as reclaimed potato starch. Groupies are meant to cut down dryer time and eliminate repeated waste (dryer sheets).
- Doghouse Rock: It’s detergent for the dogs! Rockin’ Green Soap created a clean rinsing detergent that could be used on chew toys and bedding without the worry of residue or toxic chemicals. Our pups need to be clean too!
Along with the brand new products, Rockin’ Green Soap still sells their phosphate free and enzyme free laundry detergent. Their detergents are safe for the environment and leave laundry looking and smelling great. With multiple scents to choose from and multiple water types to be taken care of, Rockin’ Green Soap is an easy and affordable choice.
You can also try a Rockin’ Green Soak on your clean towels or linens. Fill up your washing machine with hot water and 3 tbs of Rockin’ Green and let it soak for 60 minutes or longer. You will be grossed out by the gunk that comes out of your clean stuff.
Get green and get clean!
CRISIS CENTER OF TAMPA BAY - 11/05/11
The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay provides medical services and counseling to deal with the trauma of sexual assault, child abuse, domestic violence, financial distress and suicide prevention. The Crisis Center provides free services to anyone dealing with these issues 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by dialing 2-1-1 on your phone or visiting Crisis Center of Tampa Bay online. Even if you aren’t in the Tampa Bay area, dialing 2-1-1 will connect you to a crisis center in your region of the US.
The topics and situations that the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay helps with are things a lot of people don’t have the strength to seek help for. Specialized trauma counseling and therapy is available for children, adults and families who have experienced abuse, domestic violence, recent loss of a loved one or any type of emotional trauma. Victims of sexual assault can find safety in the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay through advocacy, counseling and forensic examinations. Calling a crisis center shouldn’t be a last resort. Especially with issues like suicide prevention, it’s proven that suicide can be stopped simply by connecting people with one another.
Financial hardships are hitting people and families more now than ever and the Crisis Center can help. The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay is launching a new project called Every Cent Counts. The website is still under construction, but they have huge expectations for this project and its ability to help hundreds of people in need in the Tampa Bay area. You’ll be able to read real stories of real people and contribute directly to a need or fund it completely and 100% of the donations will go directly to those in need. The idea behind the name “Every Cent Counts” is that contributions of any size can make a huge difference.
We realize today’s sponsor isn’t in the norm for us. We hope you’ll take an extra moment to spread the word and tell a friend who might be in crisis.
ONLINE STORES MADE EASY WITH SHOPIFY - 11/04/11
When starting a business there are a couple crucial decisions to make: What are you selling? Who is your target market? How are you going to sell it? The first two questions you have to answer, but Shopify can answer the last one.
Shopify let’s you create an online store in minutes, let’s you choose from one of their 100 professionally designed templates and customize your shopping cart process. You may think all of this would take you hours to setup and that you’d need technical know-how, but you’d be wrong! Shopify stores can be setup with a couple clicks of the mouse and absolutely no software to download or mess with.
If you didn’t notice or hear, Shopify is our November monthly sponsor, but they’re also sponsoring our 2012 Hiring process. We love partnering with great companies and couldn’t have kickstarted our next year of business without them (and our development partner CDev Technologies).
Have you found any cool stores that use Shopify?
