Is That Guru I Hired Really A Social media Expert?

There’s been a series of running jokes recently among a few of my blogging friends with social media as the punch line. It seems everyone these days can call himself an expert. All you need is a website, some Twitter and Facebook followers and the ability to regurgitate information. Add in a snazzy infographic and you’re golden.

It’s so tempting to do. You spend enough time figuring out how to navigate all the social networking platforms, read scores of articles online about what’s trending and suddenly you say to yourself, “I can set up a shingle in cyber land and shovel a load of this techie crap as well as the next guy.” Who’s going to stop me?

The reality is that there are a boat load of self-proclaimed experts out there that are either not very good or don’t know a whole lot more than the rest of the Internet trolling public about social media. I keep thinking to myself how they all make a living.

If you’ve been wondering how to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak, look no further. There are tell tale signs that the person you think is an expert actually is not.

1) Uses an AOL email address

Let’s face it, communicating via an AOL address is like saying to the world, “I lost track of what’s new on that thing they call the Internet back when Saturday Night Live was still funny.”

2) Thinks Foursquare is a new burger chain… Read the rest

Your Morning Routine Sets The Day

  • by

How often do you jump out of the bed, get ready and rush out the door to work or getting the kids off to school? It may only be a few minutes from my house to my workplace at 99 City Road in the heart of London but most days, I still struggle to get there on time.Do you often feel stressed and constantly on the go or even behind in everything you have to do?

Your morning routine plays a big part in how you handle the day and often determines how the rest of your day will go. If you can create some quiet time in the morning, to ease into your day, you’ll be better equipped to handle what life throws at you. Starting your morning with quiet time won’t make all your troubles go away and it won’t prevent the day from trying to tackle you, but it will give you a better foundation and a better mindset to deal with the problems and issues that come along during the day.

Try getting up half an hour earlier, especially if you have children and need to get them up, dressed and out the door for school. By having some quiet time to yourself, you set yourself up to handle things better. If you’re the kind of person who hits the alarm, jumps out of bed and immediately has to get everyone else in the house awake, your morning time probably feels hectic. Just getting half an Read the rest

Home Builders Are Now Targeting The Senior Market

Home builders are currently facing a rapidly emerging demographic that has forced the housing industry to begin shifting away from traditional forms of real estate development into methods that cater specifically to the needs of seniors. According to the United States Census Bureau, 100 million U.S. citizens, or a third of the countryandrsquo;s population, will be 50 years or older by the year 2018. Many of these seniors and retiring Baby Boomers are now starting to transition from larger homes in which they have resided for years into more manageable accommodations. Consequently, real estate developers are currently scrambling to provide housing that meets the need of the Baby Boomer generation. Pam Willard from ana Recruitment – a leading provider of care staff in Aberdeen, Scotland explains

Home builders are not only adjusting due to the massive size of the senior population on the horizon, but also because of the significant purchasing power of this blossoming demographic. The younger generations that the housing industry has focused its efforts on in recent years have been relatively poor in saving their earnings and liberal with financing their homes. Conversely, seniors generally maintain strict personal finance principals whereby wages are saved and any debt is paid down as quickly as possible. Therefore, while many younger homeowners are using the bulk of their earnings to pay heavily leveraged home mortgages, many Baby Boomers are preparing to utilize their savings and the equity in their current homes to purchase the residences in which they plan … Read the rest
