Blogging is an unbelievable profession because you get to be the boss and decide where your future is heading. However, the competition is fierce for exactly these reasons. More and more people want the “blogging” lifestyle, which is why the market is packed. Trying to stand out from the crowd is something we all face and try to do accomplish for the mere fact it generates leads, revenue, and increase traffic. By being unique, you can expand and boost your market share. However, it can be tricky to find ways to stand out, it is often harder than it looks.
With that in mind, below are three tips on how to be a stand out blogger in a crowded marketplace.
Event planning can be a complete dream to some and an absolute nightmare to others. Whether it’s something you regularly do or not, you have to learn to make it work for you. Because everyone from the social butterflies to the socially awkward will have events to celebrate at key points in their life. From weddings and birthdays to anniversaries and parties just because, when you’re trying to put on an event of a lifetime, a whole lot of stress can come your way. But it doesn’t have to; you just need to know how to master it. So if you’re pulling together an extravagant soiree anything soon, here’s how to survive it.
Let’s face it, whether you like it or not, life can be pretty stressful. In fact, it’s easy to feel as though stress is pretty much the default setting that most of us spend our time in. Between work, family, financial responsibilities, and everything else that you have to deal with, adult life can all get pretty overwhelming after a while. That being said, there are almost certainly specific times in life when the stress levels end up becoming even more significant. When that happens, it’s easy to feel like things are completely falling apart. Of course, things don’t have to be that way. You might not be able to avoid stressful situations, but it’s how you deal with those situations that makes all the difference. With that in mind, here how to deal with the stress of life.
There comes a point in life where you really feel like a career change is needed. Whether you’re holding down a full-time job and you’re struggling to find a work-life balance, or you just don’t like the industry you’re in, a career change could be the answer. We all eventually hit that point in life when we realize we are ready for something new, whether it is quickly or a slow progression. Either way, here are a few options to consider when looking for a new career.
Just about everyone has had that experience of looking at a breathtaking dress, or a jacket that just screams “attitude”, and fighting an inner battle about whether to buy it or not. That battle isn’t just about the price tag, either. It’s all too often about our own lack of confidence in putting ourselves out there and trying something that seems just a bit too daring, or that seems like it was made for people who were just “better” than us in some way.
This kind of thinking has almost always got less to do with reality than it does with our own self image issues. While not every specific outfit will suit every individual person, every category of style you could imagine will have clothes suited to a variety of body types.
It’s all about expanding your comfort zone and learning how to be more courageous about your style. With practice, you can feel comfortable rocking just about any look, and before long you can expect to find yourself happily using effective beauty products like collagen powder in combination with makeup and outfits that the earlier you would have been too shy to dare experiment with.
Here are some tips for getting there.
Are you starting to get that restlessness and itching for something new in your career? Maybe you want to progress within the same company or switch careers and try something new? We’ve all been there. For me it was the day, I couldn’t force myself to return to the nine to five job I held. I dreaded every morning and would walk blocks around the office building pleading to myself to not go to work. I realized, something had to change. While everyone is different when it comes to progressing and moving forward, here are three ways to improve your career prospects that have proven to work. I chose the last one, hehe!
It’s that time of year where the holidays are insight and the schedule is jammed packed. For those in school, I know exams, presentations, reports are coming up. For those who work 9-5 jobs, I know it is crunch time to make the most of the 4th quarter. And I know for anyone who is reading this, tons of holiday parties, family time, and dinners are about to commence. The pressure of fitting everything in, budgeting it all out, and having a moment to yourself is a lot of work. Throw in a few relatives you rather not see, and it becomes a tad overwhelming.
For me personally, my schedule is packed to the brim and not looking to lighten up anytime soon. The startup I am working with is about to launch to the public (ekk, super excited for you guys to try it out)! Holiday invites are already coming in, and I am gearing up to bring the best of the best Holiday content for all of you! When I am faced with time crunches like these, I often see where I can clear scale back or if there are commitments that can be placed on the back burner. When that isn’t even a solution, this is how I create balance during chaos!
I am writing this while laying on my hardwood floors drinking my second cup of coffee after spending two hours doing accounting and the morning deep cleaning the apartment. Looking through other drafted articles I had ready to go for this Friday, I realized let’s just begin with where I am today… Adulting is tough, man, but I rather learn that now.
Hi my loves!
I cannot believe it is September already. This Summer went so fast, I blinked and it is almost over! We still have a few more weeks before it is officially Fall (aka my favorite season). This year though, I am kind of sad Summer is ending. I actually had a really nice relaxing Summer. I didn’t travel or do much of anything, but it was a welcomed treat to stay still. I mentioned in an earlier post this week, last summer I moved three times! Which I guess is why staying still and not running around too much is a dream!
