When running a business as complex as a Family Entertainment Center, you have many different responsibilities and many tools to use for running your business.

Most Family Entertainment Centers are using a Point of Sale (POS) or swipe card system for most business activities. However, when it comes to organizing special events like birthday parties, skating parties, bowling leagues, paintball, and laser tag events to name a few; a POS system may require you to purchase an add-on "Event Scheduler" software that can cost thousands of dollars.

Wouldn't it be great if there was a better way?

4 Signs of a True Entrepreneur

This article was originally posted on by Mayra Jiminez

People often wonder how the kid who rarely talked or wasn't particularly popular in class went on to become a start-up genius. What was it about that person that helped him or her blossom into an icon of entrepreneurship? And how can you make sure you have what it takes?

It's a combination of factors. Start with these:

Passion is the fuel that drives the creation of dreams. This is a no-brainer. You have to wake up every day wanting your success. You have to become obsessed with the idea of achieving your goals, with attaining the grand objective that will yield meaning of great personal significance. The trick, of course, is to channel that passion into action. Sometimes the idea is so exciting that it becomes scary to try. And it's scary to fail. Successful entrepreneurs know that failure is part of the journey, and that without failure, there is no success.

Passion without conviction is like a shooting star that fizzles before you even fully realize it's there. What keeps your passion alive? Conviction streamlines your passion into a steady flow. After all, most people have innovative ideas at some point in their lives. It's conviction that determines what you do with those ideas. Do you let it die? Or do you go for it?

Let's face it: You have to be a little bit crazy to achieve extreme success. It takes a particular type of lunacy to never want to quit, to believe in something so much that it defines you. It's this lunacy that takes you to a state of euphoria in which you think you can tackle some unachievable goal that others have never attempted to tackle. If you're not defined by what you want to accomplish, you'll impose limits on your efforts. People who change the world would never do such a thing.

Need for approval

Before the "how they did it" question comes the "why". Many experts believe that most entrepreneurs who have made history have been driven by a need for approval. Instead of creating a lack of confidence, this "I'll show 'em" attitude can foster an entrepreneur's conviction. It is the force that makes him or her fight harder. At the end of the day, everyone who told you no deserves some credit: He or she helped you become who you are.

If the list above describes you, congratulations. You're ready to be an entrepreneur. You are equipped with a set of virtues that are built to yield big things. You were born to make a difference. Get on with your idea if you believe you have something special. Challenge the paradigms that bind you, and go change the world.
Mayra Jimenez and her husband founded The Orchid Boutique, which specializes in designer swimwear made in their native Colombia. Today Orchid Boutique is a multi-million dollar business with both online and brick-and-mortar stores.

Create Online Forms

Photo Credit:  Johan Larsson
One of the most versatile features of your Inspherio website is the ability to create online forms.  These Forms can be used to collect information from the people who visit your site.  This can be basic contact information, polls, vouchers, or anything else you can come up with.

You can even make certain fields mandatory!  

Text Guide:
-  First you will need to edit one of your website pages in Inspherio under Website >> Public Site Content

-  To begin creating a Form, click on the icon that looks like a dotted rectangle and says “Form.”  Then, you only need to enter the name of the Form and click OK

-  These Forms can consist of Open-Ended Questions, Multiple Choice Questions, lists, and more
-  Lets Start with creating a Text Field.  This is useful if you would like to collect info such as names, phone numbers, etc.
-  Start by entering what information you are collecting.  Such as a Name.  Then Click the Text Field icon.
-  Then enter the name of this text field, then enter character width of 20-30 this determines how long the box is.  Then Enter the Maximum Characters that someone can put into this field. Then click “OK”
-  If there are things you would like to change about this form, you can double-click the box and make some changes.
-  You can keep adding fields like this one, or you can do something a little different.
-  If you would like to give the User some options, add Radio Buttons by clicking the dot icon that says radio button
-  Name the button, then type in what it represents
-  You can also use checkboxes in this manner if you want the users to check all that apply
-  Now lets add a Drop Down Menu
-  Go to the Icon that says Selection Field
-  Give it a name and then select the number of lines.  You will likely want to limit it to one line.  Then select the same text for text and value and click add.  Click OK when you are satisfied with the drop down options
-  In the End, you will need to add a Submit Button so that this information will be sent to you
-  To do this, select the icon that is titled “Button”
-  Then type in Submit for Type and Value.  Be sure the Type is Button.  Then Click OK
-  If you would like to have this information sent to someone else, like say, your virtual assistant.  Then you can do that also.
-  To do this click in the area right before the Submit button
-  Then go to add a Hidden Field.  
-  For the name of this form type “form notify email” as one word.  formnotifyemail.  And for the value, type in the email address that the email notification should go to.  Then Click OK
If you would like to make certain fields mandatory, you can do that through the source code by clicking “Source”
-  To make a text box or a text area mandatory, first find the field in the html code
-  In the line of code for the text box, you will need to add class="required"  and title="This information is required"
-  This way, the user will not be allowed to submit the form until the required field is completed.  If the user clicks the submit button without entering any value in that particular field, the text we entered for the "title"  will show up in red.
-  When the Form is completed, it will then be sent to you in an email.
