From the barista who serves your coffee to forward-thinking teachers, we all have creativity within us. We can be creative if we want to.
Art can be in everything we do. I imagine if you’re passionate about it, you might think it’s pretty important.
You might think about it a lot. You might get frustrated if you can’t seem to finish a project or bring one of your ideas to life, says Emily who develops tests for the U.S. and Canadian High School Equivalency (HSE) tests.
She says: sometimes, at the end of the day, I look around me and see that I didn’t accomplish much at all, and my professional goal is to create at least one new test for the website BestGEDClasses.org that helps students to get ready for the HSE test. Sometimes other things take over and whatever we create for the day doesn’t matter anymore.
We have many priorities. Does the world need YOUR art? Your contribution? That’s what I keep hearing, anyway. So, that feeling of disappointment hangs over me, because I didn’t make enough of a “contribution” at the end of the day.
I have come across YouDontNeedaCRM in a startup contest. It caught my attention right away as I spent several years in big or medium corporation sales organizations. This is because I could relate to the operational difficulties of putting in place a practical and functional sales tool. I had to listen to what they have to offer.
I was pleasantly surprised with their presentation and I asked more details. Sunny Paris, the CEO, kindly provided the below post to my queries. They are going rather viral in the SME (Small/Medium Enterprise) domain and they have a multi-geography implementation. I believe and Sunny confirms that they can be deployed at team level of big accounts.

There are many different ways you can go about creating your online Internet marketing business.
The best place to start is by checking out the competition. This is an important step because you need to know what the competitions are doing when it comes to devising your marketing strategy. By checking out what they are doing, it can help you devise a strategy to make you stand out from the crowd.
Next, decide on your goal. You will need to know the end result you require from any marketing campaign. Often, people seem to forget about this when they start out to market a product. What are the results you want to get from the campaign?
Crucial to all direct-response TV efforts is the industry’s mantra-the call to action. At the end of the day, the primary goal of most infomercials is not to build brand recognition but to motivate the viewer to act, whether that means to buy something or go somewhere.
Every direct-response TV segment includes a toll-free number or Web address or both. Typically incentives are part of the equation. For instance, depending on the cable station airing it, Excite@Home’s infomercial touts offers ranging from free installation to three-month subscriptions at no cost.
“Now that the chips are down, accountability is no longer an option-it’s a requirement,” says Lee Frederiksen, founder and CEO of the Frederiksen Group, the Falls Church, Va.-based direct-response marketing firm that created “The Monster Show.”
Online promotion and marketing will remain two of the most important aspects for your small business as long as it is up and running. Customers need to know you are out there, and you need a way to quickly find those customers and deliver your message to them.
You need to convince them that you can solve their problems better than anyone else. Seeking help from an online marketing firm can be beneficial for the sake of getting this stuff right.
However, the 5 following tips will help you out:
SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
The single most dramatic effect on marketing and business today has been social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter. It seems like almost everyone (including my grandma!) is on them for many hours a day.
Though not as malicious, using social media is quite similar to hunting. Hunters know where their prey congregates, so that is where they look for them. This idea can be applied to utilizing social media to target your audience. It’s a simple idea, but one that many business owners fail to implement.
Before I left for work this morning I checked my email to see if there had been any update on K. Nothing in the inbox. As I arrived at the office, I asked the secretary if there had been any news. She shook her head and I knew … he didn’t make it. Turns out, he didn’t even make it through the night. In fact, when I posted my blog last night, he’d already passed.
K is gone. He died surrounded by his family and loved ones. The tubes are out. He’s at peace.
To some degree, we each have our own idea of faith, religion and the afterlife. I am Jewish but my opinions/beliefs are not 100% clear. I know what I want to believe. I want to believe there is a G-d (I was taught never to write out G-d’s name so it couldn’t be destroyed … hence the hyphen) and that He has a greater purpose.
That all things do happen for a reason. That the only reason K would have died so young is because G-d needed him up in Heaven. That there is a Heaven. Continue reading “On A Serious Note…”
When you, like I did, need to struggle to get your GED to get ahead in life, you’ll understand that the road to a leadership position is quite challenging. I had no choice but drop out of the High School when I was 16 years old back then, and it took me quite a while to earn my GED diploma.
I’m very proud of being a GED recipient but it wasn’t easy. I failed first, going back to school was a disaster and I’m thankful for being able to follow the GED program on Bestgedclasses.org offered on the internet. If I lived 20 years ago I wouldn’t have been able to pursue my dream.
My secret source of motivation was a website that pointed out that many famous and successful people are also GED graduates. It took me 5 months to get ready for the GED exam. It was a character changing experience but I did it. Besides the GED diploma, I also got confidence and self-esteem as ‘byproducts’.
Then I decided I wanted to be a leader, I wanted to be a nurse and a leader, so now my task was to find my own path to leadership. I’ve been thinking about this a lot. Perhaps it stems from me trying to figure out my next move. I want to grow as a nurse leader, but the path isn’t clear. Good examples of a nursing leadership track I have yet to discover.
Angel posted an entry today about what she expects in a friend, such as empathy and humor.
I thought I’d mix it up a bit and write about what my friends are as a way of showing my gratitude, and reminding myself of how lucky I am when times get tough between us.
No matter what music I like, or what I choose to do with my life, my friends will always accept it.
Even if they don’t agree with it, they won’t hold it against me.
Encouraging In the past couple of years I’ve been through a lot, and my friends have been there every step of the way.
From something as simple as motivating me when I want to lose weight, to something as complex as helping me get through my therapy. I’m still not there, but I know that if I hit a stumbling block they’ll be there to pick me back up.
How many times have you stared solemnly into the sink full of dishes around dinner time while your stomach growled in anticipation? If you are like me, you have done this quite of few times and the hunger and tiredness just overtook the urge to wash the dishes and make dinner. Around these times it seemed as though my stomach would scream “FAST FOOD!” and I would reluctantly give in.
This can get you into big trouble! If you give in to the temptation at least once, you are bound to make it a habit and that is not good for your health or your wallet! Having clean dishes is a great motivator to make wonderful home cooked stockpile meals!
Stress-free way to always have clean dishes:
Unless you make a gourmet meal every night, you probably don’t dirty up a ton of dishes for just one dinner. I find it easiest to “clean while you cook”. This means while you are preparing your meal, put away stuff as you use it and rinse out the dishes when you are done using them. If you don’t have a dishwasher you could load up the sink with hot soapy water and just place the dishes you are done with in there so they are ready for you. This will make the task of doing the dishes a lot easier when you get to it.
Well, what do you think? My first made from SCRATCH theme. Whoo-hoo. I think it turned out rather well. The drop shadow didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped but it’ll do for now.
I had the worst weekend. I went home because my dog was really sick (not eating or sleeping, breathing really hard, and bleeding internally) so we put her to sleep on Saturday. I’ve been a basket case since. This was the hardest animal to lose. God, I miss her so much. Anyway, to avoid a completely morbid post, I’ll move on but before I do.
Other than THAT, I graduate in less than three weeks. I’m SO excited. I’ll get out of this 12×12 room or whatever it is and have a real life, as long as I get into law school. I still haven’t heard yet. Hopefully, I do relatively soon.
The road to my degree is a rather strange one, though. I screwed up at high school and I actually had to take the GED test to get into college. Today, there are a few pretty good online GED class sites, but in my days it wasn’t quite like that.
