social media marketing Feb 17, 2019


How long do you think it takes to make a first impression?

Actually you have to act very quickly in order to make a proper first impression even using social media.

But as the old saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, especially on social media.

People on social media have very short attention spans but very long memories, so first impressions are important. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you avoid common mistakes and make a killer first impression on social media:

goal setting Jan 30, 2019

How do you feel after experiencing a setback? 

How do you move forward after a setback? 

 

Whatever you don't let setbacks sabotage your goals! Use these three tips that will propel you forward!

1. Put It In Perspective 

You are not the first to have fallen short of your goal, or been disappointed with an outcome, and you won't be the last! Don't give up on your dreams because of a letdown. Rather, realize that setbacks are a necessary part of moving towards success.

Many people expect to change habits immediately that they have taken years to develop and without any type of practical strategy in place to make them successful.” Many of them also expect instant results and get discouraged when they don’t see a change right away. 

If you want to lose weight and have been working out and eating healthy for a week but have not seen any results, you...
