Social Media: The Pros and Cons of Popular Platforms

Social Media
There are so many social media platforms out here that it can hard to keep up. If you're using social media as a marketing tool for business, the pros and cons of each platform matter. I found this ah-mazing infographic that pinpoints the social media pros and cons of major platforms. And it is extremely accurate, in my humble opinion. Take a look and tell me what you think! Social Media Pros and Cons Given all these pros and cons, what's an entrepreneur to do?

Networking Effectively Increases Your Opportunities, Leads and Sales

Networking Effectively Increases Your Opportunities, Leads and Sales

Networking
Most of us experienced folks will give you a side-eye at the mere mention of the word networking. It has connotations of uninteresting salespeople, shoving their crap ass business cards into your hand without so much as a care about who you are and what you do. This post is NOT talking about that kind of interaction. For our purposes, we're talking about true networking, building relationships, anywhere and everywhere. NOT those spammy networking events. Well they're spammy to me, so I guess I'm biased, but I digress. Networking has always been the best way to find a job, get recommendations, and increase the buzz about any business. Yes, always. It's been going on since there has been trade and barter. The golf course, working lunches, after-hours business functions, and…

5 Morning Rituals for Productivity and Happiness [Video]

Random Chats
Mornings can make or break your day. Oftentimes we have the best intentions the night before. Before we go to bed we think to ourselves, what did I accomplish today? Then, after reflection of the day that got away, we challenge ourselves to wake up renewed and refreshed tomorrow, with a plan to manage the day better. Then we wake up, and after hitting the snooze button we grab our phones to check on emails and social media. Next, we hit the floor running and whatdoyaknow, the day is already running us! We lose track of the best intention we had the night before, the one about starting a new morning ritual. This cycle seems to repeat itself over and over again. While we dream about managing our days better,…

Do Not Let Envy of the Competition Crush Your Progress

Do Not Let Envy of the Competition Crush Your Progress

Random Chats
Have you heard the adage, "don't compare your beginning to another person's middle." It goes something like that... The point of this adage, the reason we have to take heed, especially us entrepreneurs, is that we often see where is a person is today and we play the comparison game. The problem is that we don't know how long that person has been in the game. How many hours they work every week, grinding, sacrificing, investing time and money, etc. We don't know their story or their struggle. All we see is the glory, we don't see the guts.  This breeds that hungry green eyed monster, E-N-V-Y. Envy of the Competition When you’re resentful that your competition has what you’d like to have, or accomplishes what you’d like to do,…

Complacency Will Keep You Broke

You’ve heard the story about how if you put a frog in a pot of boiling water, he’ll jump right out. But if you put a frog in water and slowly turn up the heat, he’ll boil to death.

Complacency means that you’re content with where you’re at in life and with what you’re doing. You’ve found your comfort zone and you’re sticking with it. Being complacent is not a good thing because what it does is keep you stuck exactly where you are. When you’re complacent, you don’t try to learn and improve your skills or your business.…
