6 Things Your Future Self Wants You To Start Doing TODAY

6+ Things Your Future Self Wants You To Start Doing… TODAY

Life comes at you so fast sometimes it’s hard to contemplate the future. “If you don’t plan to succeed, you plan to fail.” You can’t afford to just drift through life. Your future self may someday look back at how you lived today and wonder “what the heck were you thinking?” Live intentionally to have a better life today and tomorrow. Here are six things that your future self wants you to starting doing today.

Take More Chances  

Stability is comfortable. Risk-taking is what makes you grow and advance. One German study found that people who enjoyed taking risks were more content in life. It’s hard to know what comes first, satisfaction with life or risk-taking. It’s like asking, “which came first – the chicken or the egg?” If you take risks today, you won’t look back in 10 years and ask yourself “what if?”

Stop living to be accepted by others. Do things that you want to do because you find it exciting. Take a chance. Even if you fail, you’ll learn from it. You’ll be in the minority, because most people don’t take risks. You’ll stand out in the crowd as you forge your path.

Taking a risk will make you more successful. Chances are, if you’re trying to better yourself, it’s because you’re not happy with your circumstances. Change is risky. But the only way to escape your current situation is to make change.

Risk-taking isn’t just jumping off into the deep end with any and every opportunity. You have to look at the right options. Be a calculated risk-taker. Maximize your chances by taking more risks than not but weigh your choices carefully while you’re taking risks.

Be Who You Want to Be

What defines you? Matt Damon said, “It’s just better to be yourself than to try to be some version of what you think the other person wants.” Being yourself is easier said than done. How do you find your true self? As adults, we’re often conditioned to be a certain way. There are times when you do need to act responsibly when you don’t really want to. Finding your true self is more about authenticity and individuality. Here are some tips to help you find the person you want to be.

  1. Make a list of your personality traits, both good and bad. Which ones do you want to be known for?
  2. What are your values? Your convictions define how you act in different situations. Are you happy with your values? If not, make some changes.
  3. Stop comparing yourself to others. There’s always going to be someone richer, prettier or more successful than you. Theodore Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” When you fall into the comparison trap, you lose self-confidence and begin to adopt a persona that isn’t the real you. Someone else’s outside can never be compared to your inside.
  4. Focus on growth. As you become the person you want to be, your parents (or others who knew the old you) may call you out for past mistakes. It can be discouraging to remember where you once were. Bite your tongue and remember that you are trying to be a better person. It’s not where you were, but where you’re going.

Don’t think that your true self is set in stone. Your values, philosophies and personality may change over time. As you become more aware of yourself and others, you may find that you change your political orientation or religious views. You may even find yourself having conflicting points of view as you reflect on society, your friends and family and your own needs.

Accept Who You Are

While you’re trying to figure out who you are, recognize that you are who you are today. Change does not always come easy. It takes time to reshape your personality and values. The persona you try out this year may not be who you are next year. Admit your mistakes and apologize, if necessary. Don’t agonize over the past.

When you do feel remorseful, remind yourself that you made the best decision with the information at the time. Maybe it wasn’t the right choice, but you can’t change what happened. You can only go forward. Make the changes you want to make, but don’t forget to love yourself in the meantime

Stop Worrying About Failing

When you were young, you were taught that failing is bad. Don’t fall. Don’t lose the game. Don’t get a bad grade. Being scared of failing is ingrained into your very fiber. We don’t want to disappoint our parents, our teachers and our leaders. What we’re never taught is “what is the worst that can happen if you fail?”

Thomas Edison had over 1,000 attempts in inventing the light bulb. Winston Churchill failed to pass the entrance exam to the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, not just once, but twice. Charles Darwin’s father considered him a very ordinary young man who didn’t have a whit of intellect. These are men who changed history. Clearly, failure didn’t define them.

Your future self wants you to know that it’s okay to fail. Failure isn’t the end of the world. It’s how you deal with failure that defines your true self. You may not get it right the first time. Bet you learn more when you get it wrong, because you have to go back and figure out what went wrong. Pick yourself up. Learn from your mistake. Move forward.

Live Life Fully

Gary Vaynerchuk said, “I’m the happiest because I’m doing exactly what I want to do.” Don’t wait until you get to the end of your life and discover you haven’t followed your dreams. Ask yourself, “what do I need to do to be happy and have meaning?” Maybe you don’t have all the money in the world, but you can choose to do things that make you happy.

Volunteer for organizations that you support. Be kind to your neighbors. Invest in time with those you love. Instead of binging on Netflix, go outside and have a water fight. Get off social media and be social in your community. Take up a sport that interests you. Get enough sleep. See the world in a positive way. You may not be able to change the world, but you can “be the good” in your community by changing one person.

Be Happy

One of the top regrets of the dying is “I wish I had let myself be happier.” Gary Vee said, “The truth is that finding happiness in what you do every day is so imperative.” Happiness isn’t the result of living, it’s a choice that makes it easier to live. Happiness doesn’t find you. You choose happiness. Need ideas on living happy? Researchers have studied happiness and found proven ways to increase your happy.

  1. Smile like you mean it.
    A Michigan State University study found that customer service workers who faked a smile had worse moods that others who genuinely smiled due to positive emotions. One more reason to be authentic and be true to yourself instead of putting on airs.
  2. Take an afternoon nap.
    A siesta after lunch may sound very continental and luxurious, but many European countries shut down in the afternoon to allow workers to take a long lunch break. One study found that naps tend to desensitize people to negative emotions and help them respond to positive feelings. Sleep has many emotional benefits.
  3. Spend time with family and friends.
    Another regret of the dying is not spending time with loved ones. Social connections make you happy. Don’t get to the end of your life and have no one to share it with. Strengthening your relations is much more beneficial than a salary increase in terms of happiness. It’s been shown that helping and caring for others can help you live to an older age.
  4. Go to the beach.
    A UK study found that sea + sun = happiness. A natural environment makes people happier than the city. Get out in nature on the weekend. Coastal and marine locations raised happiness levels. If you can’t get to the beach, go to the mountains or the forests. Enjoy a farm. Go for a drive. You’ll be happier.

Make Small Changes

If you’re dissatisfied with your life today, it’s not going to get better on its own. You have to make changes to get to where you want to be. Making sweeping changes is difficult, so make small steps. Change one thing this month. Once it becomes a habit, make another change. You can be who you want to be. But it’s up to you.

Real Estate Marketing Ideas For New Agents With No Money

What’s up guys Jason Wardrop here in today’s view I’m going to show you guys the top real estate marketing ideas for brand new agents had absolutely no money And so if you’re just kind of looking to get started in the game I want to be able to help you out with some ideas that I would go through and do if I was a brand new agent with absolutely no money alright, so Also the winner from last video like I said guys I’m giving out my free Facebook Ads course to one lucky winner for people that comment down below and I’m gonna pick my favorite comment every single video and the winner today was Brandon Haslett and Brandon saw I post his comment down all right up here And and he was like this video actually was inspired by his comment so Brandon’s 20 years old He’s saying that he goes and he knocks doors every day I think he was like try to make 10 or 20 contacts every single day.

He’s like look. I’m a new agent I you know don’t have a lot of money go through put into marketing It doesn’t matter if you’re 20 30 40 50 whatever like sometimes when you’re skins start You don’t have a lot of money to go put towards advertising or Zillow leads truly leads or any of that other stuff So I just want to share with you guys some of the things that I would go through and do and some of these success stories of Has based off of this little strategy that I’ve got for you guys right so number one.

Okay? I would go through You’re watching this video right here on YouTube I would go through and start your own YouTube channel right now really quick guys before you’re like Jason I I don’t want to start YouTube channel it takes too much time too much work and You know I can’t go through and then shoot a video. I’m scared to be on camera really quick guys I want to show you guys a few different agents who didn’t start too long ago and they have absolutely explode their brand and They just get leads like almost like endless leads coming to them right so this is right here. This is Graham Stefan He is a realtor in the stuff. I think his South comes Southern California’s sorry I can’t even talk right now Lily this guy’s he’s got over a hundred thousand subscribers now if we come over here now I think he started a couple of years ago, but he’s just been consistent with it, right So it says one year ago guys look at that one year.

He has over a hundred thousand subscribers and so This is one person I’m like okay this this is a huge brand that he’s very Consistent with the he’s shooting videos like every you know a couple videos a week, but for here’s another one Loida right here She says new videos weekly, so it’s like if you don’t have time to go through and shoot videos non-stop then you know you can go through and shoot it like maybe once a week two times a week three times a week and the great thing about YouTube guys Okay If you guys been following me for some time now and also add a link to a video that I created of how to actually Rank your YouTube videos, and I go through step by step everything I do not see your not gonna rank every single one But I’ve got a channel That I start in the dental space that has well over a million views and I started out about seven years ago And I still get twenty to twenty five thousand views every single month at like like today guys every single month Without even doing anything.

I having to touch that channel for like four to five months. Okay, so the great thing about YouTube is One you can go rank for different keywords, too It’s a hundred percent free organic traffic as people going through Just typing in a little search result and I’ll tell you guys some of the different things to cert or to make the videos about Here in a second, and then you know when they see your video They see you on camera and so it builds a deeper bond. They’re like okay You know this this Lloyd a person or Jason person whoever it is you build a deeper connection with that person alright? So here’s another one brian kocel is so so loyal. She’s got twenty thousand almost twenty one thousand subscribers Brian’s got sixty five thousand, and then here’s another one chaste, and he’s got a little over five thousand So you don’t have to have a massive channel right you can go through and have a small Channel and just if you like go through start making a video two videos a Day, then you start to be found on a Google search engine It’s a hundred percent free and the nice thing is you make a video today? Five years from now that still is gonna pop up in the Google search and engine the youtube search engine Just like what’s going on with my dental YouTube channel right so for example right here Chaston right here Let’s say you use the keyword hey, the top real estate agent in Dallas right look down here He’s not the very top but says hey meet chats in Dallas real estate agent Okay So you can say hey? you could target keywords like top real estate agent in Dallas or Hey, how to sell your home in Dallas and obviously it depends on like what city you’re in so like if you’re in Omaha, Nebraska like the top realtor in Omaha, Nebraska And when you go through if you’re like trying to rank for like the the keyword top realtor That’s gonna.

Be pretty hard right cuz there’s gonna be a ton and ton of people I think there’s over two million agents in the United States They’re gonna be trying to rank for that keyword right But if you go through and say hey top realtor in your city your state There’s gonna be a lot fewer people actually on YouTube and even I’m trying to rank for that right or you know hey how to sell your home in Dallas or how to buy a home in Dallas or whatever city that you live in right So those are some really good keywords to go through and target and as I mentioned guys It’s a hundred percent free organic traffic.

You don’t have to go through run as towards this obviously This is a little bit longer term strategy, but you can combine it with like for example Brandon. He’s knocking doors every single day That’s a little bit short of term strategy right, but then you can go through and be shooting these videos I’m just different topics like look right here Chasse. I’ll just show you guys some of the different videos He does and this is a good way to get ideas is go find other Agents that have YouTube channels and see what types of videos are shooting and that you’re basically got unlimited content, right? So right here, let’s see. It’s a hard being a realtor my success in the real estate business He’s got a video on his listing appointment real estate agent daily life You know you could just come over here and click videos and you’ve got all the videos that he’s done You’ve got all the videos that Bryan’s done that Lloyd has done This Graham’s done And there’s a ton of other agents doing the same type of thing now Graham gets a little bit into like the investing stuff And he even talks about bitcoins some of those other hot topics which is probably why his channels growing a little bit faster, but guys even with this smaller channel like 5,000 subscribers You can get massive results like even if you’re skinny started, and you only have like 50 to 100 subscribers You can still see some pretty good results because you start showing up in the Google and YouTube search engine right ok So that’s step number one guys.

I would go through start a YouTube channel start branding yourself Okay, especially like Brandon if you’re 20 years old man These videos are gonna be live for 10 to 20 like when you’re 30 or 40 years old these are going to be There where you can go through and still be bringing in business right it’s really good to start this right now Okay, so then also another thing you want to do is let’s say. This is your video right here I don’t know whose video says. I’m just gonna click on. Oh, that’s a this not even a video. How did they okay? Let’s see let’s go. Let’s get okay Here’s a YouTube video right here, okay, so let’s say you got this YouTube video right here what you’re gonna Do is you’ll have a link down here to some sort of landing page now if you guys watch my previous trainings I talked about landing pages if you guys have no idea what I’m talking about I’ll also add a link to another video Talking about the easiest way to go through and generate leads online and you add a link to that landing page to get their person’s Name phone number and email address to go through and grab that contact information right have some sort of call to action some sort of Giveaway that you’re doing on the channel Then you could also leave a comment down here with a link to that landing page right now Once you’re going through you’re grabbing all this data You’re building your network through this landing page getting more leads and all that stuff what you want to do is go import them into some sort of CRM so Here’s the Arsenal CRM right, and if this works for any CRM that you’re using obviously this is the one we use here You can go through and import your contacts you just choose a file pretty soon.

We’re actually gonna be integrated 100% with Gmail with Google contacts So you can just go and seamlessly sync those and then what we do is just put them on a drip campaign Okay, so in this messages section what we have is We’ve got these pre-built templates of these are the bimonthly updates right so every 15 days You’re going through and dropping an email on them so that they’re just kind of like remembering who you are remembering the brand and all That stuff and then what we can do is over here once.

We’ve imported those leads We just select all those leads And we say hey and roll the leads of the sequence choose the sequence say buy monthly updates hit enroll leads And they’ll be enrolled automatically into that sequence, and if you look at that Obviously, this is a demo account, but let’s say you’ve got a hundred leads right or 500 or a thousand leads And you’re just and rolling all those people in the same sequence so every 15 days you’re dripping on these people with real estate Specific content we’re building your brand or let’s say you launch a new video, and you want people to know about it You go through in your CRM create a new email so come in here say Hey create an email and go blast out an email to all of your contacts saying hey I just shot a new video or I’ve got a new listing or I’m doing an open house or doing whatever and You’ve got endless content And this is a really nice easy free way to go through and brand yourself As you’re just getting started alright, so anyway guys Hopefully you like some of these real estate marketing ideas for brand new agents.

Social Media Marketing: Pinterest for Business

On Pinterest, the social platform built on beautiful, shareable imagery, opportunities for shopping come cleverly disguised as outfit inspiration, smoothie recipes and DIY centrepieces. For consumers, it’s a place to hunt and gather. For brands, it’s a goldmine. Consider this: we analyzed data from over 529, 000 Shopify store orders to find that Pinterest was the second largest social source for traffic, and resulting visits had the third highest average order value. Also, according to research done by piqora, sales and traffic from Pins can occur long after the item is pinned.

In fact, 50 percent of visits happen after 3 and a half months, which respectively, is more bang for your buck than twitter or facebook. The reasons for using pinterest for your business are impossible to ignore. In this video, we’ll show you seven concrete methods, that you can use to drive sales and traffic with Pinterest.

One, Use Rich Pins – Rich Pins are enhanced Pins that make your images even more shoppable because they contain additional information right inside the Pin.

There are five types of Rich Pins – Movie, Place, Recipe, Article and Product. And Online retailers can benefit from Product Pins because they include real-time pricing and stock availability. Rich Pins can also improve click through rate and discoverability of Pins, by making them eligible for Pinterest’s own curated feeds. Another advantage of Rich Pins is price

notifications. If you reduce the price of your product, customers who Repinned that product image will receive an email from Pinterest notifying them of the price drop and prompting them to buy. Also, if you’re using Shopify, we have partnered with Pinterest to automatically enable Rich Pins for our merchants. That means any images Pinned from your product pages will now be published as Rich Pins. To enjoy the benefits of Rich Pins, be sure that you sign up for a Pinterest business account. Two, Pin Smarter – Knowing what types of images work best on Pinterest is extremely important. I’m sure you’ve all heard of the importance and impact of great product photography and pinterest is yet another place where it can really pay off.

Shopify store Sycamore

Street Press, for example does product photo shoots and creates blog posts specifically to create highly pinnable images that will draw people to their sites from pinterest. Most months, Sycamore Street Press gets most of its referral traffic from Pinterest over any other source. Another great example is Designer Moorea Seal, who has built an audience of over 900,000 on her beautifully-curated Pinterest account, which is responsible for 50% of her store’s sales. Her approach is to provide “Clear, clean product images on a white or light grey background plus an editorial view of products either in a natural environment or on a person to give customers two styles of photography options for pinning to their boards.” When shooting and choosing photos for

your product pages, strive to make them highly Repinnable.

So, What makes an image Pinterest-worthy? Well, let’s dig into the data: Keep it Anonymous – Images without faces receive 23% more Repins than those with faces. Use Color Wisely – Pins with multiple dominant colors are Repinned times more than those dominated by a single color, and red images fare better than blue. Image Size – Images on your product pages should ideally be at least 600 px wide with the optimal Pin width being 736 pixels wide, which is the maximum display size. Taller images are more likely to be Repinned. Listen – Pay attention to your analytics, either through your Pinterest business

tools or via other apps like Piqora, Tailwind, or Curalate.

While summer salad recipes and DIY treehouses may have high virality potential overall, be relevant – find out what resonates with your audience specifically. Timing is Everything – Pin and engage when your customers are doing the same. The time periods 2-4pm and 8-11pm are roughly the best times to Pin, but it can depend on where and who your customers are. We’ve also linked to some Pinterest research which suggests that certain categories perform better on specific days of the week. You Need a Blog – A blog is the perfect place to create beautiful content for your pinterest boards. We’ve linked to a great article in the description of this video that will help get you started creating a blog that pinterest users will love. Three – Sell the Lifestyle. Create boards around lifestyle themes that include your products, rather than just product boards. Great brands understand their customers and the kind of content that they crave. Inspire your audience, don’t just sell to them.

“A Great Outdoors” board for example will be much more compelling than a board that simply highlights the outerwear your brand carries.

Holly Castro for example, of Charm & Gumption fills her “For the Home” Board with curated pins that complement her own products, which are peppered throughout. Nordstrom takes a similar approach with their “Pick Pink” Board, which is entirely dedicated to the rosy hue. It’s filled with hyper-feminine picks from around the web – with subtle inclusions from Nordstrom’s own offerings. After all, 92% of all pins are made by women. Four – Piggyback on Popular Content. While you should use caution when pinning content simply based on viral potential, you shouldn’t ignore opportunities to tap into the most popular pin types and search terms if they’re actually relevant to your audience. Here’s a great example. Sony Electronics, has a product category that doesn’t rank high on the list of popular categories.

So, they’ve cleverly jumped on the virality of cute animals and humor to create their board “I Can Haz Gadgets”. Consider your audience. Are your customers

predominantly men? Well, your slice of the Pinterest pie is smaller, so maximize your efforts. Create boards and pin content in the categories of photography, art, design, and home decor. Do you sell food or beverages? Develop easy recipes containing your products. Are your products related to fitness, health, or beauty? Pin aspirational and inspirational content with quotes. Is your ecommerce store a source for tools, craft supplies, or fabric? Use them to create DIYs and tutorials. Remember, a pin can contain your

products and a link to a step-by-step tutorial on your blog. Five – Run Pinterest Contests. Contests are a great way to increase engagement on Pinterest. When done well, and within the platform’s parameters, Pinterest contests can drive sales and traffic for your ecommerce site. Travel website, Jetsetter for example, used contests to effectively increase site traffic by 150%. We’ve linked to that case study in the description of this video. Brands, however, should pay attention to Pinterest’s contest guidelines. Certain types of contests are not permitted, nor is spammy behaviour.

Contest these tips: Make it Worth it – Forever 21 asks followers to create an entire board, but puts a $1000 gift card on the table as incentive. Get Inspired – Look to other brands for contest ideas that might work for you. Use an App – Apps like Gleam.io, Wishpond or Woobox can help organize your contest and host it on your site or Facebook. We’ve linked to a few of these in the description of this video. Six – Leverage the Power of Influencers.

Partner up with Pinterest influencers and bloggers to give your product some clout on the social network. Many brands get access to new audiences by inviting Guest Pinners to create boards on their accounts. Often, influencers will charge a fee for this service, but social media love in exchange for your product may be possible, too. Choose to work with Pinterest users whose audiences resemble your desired customers. Martha Stewart Living for example strategically partnered with the mommy bloggers behind Cool Mom Picks.

Seven – Engage Your Community. Involve your community to help increase engagement. Group Boards can be comprised of many contributors – customers, staff, a select group of influencers – or can even be open to anyone to join. The contributors to your group boards become brand ambassadors, creating content on your behalf. You can also encourage your customers to share images of themselves with your product. This is an especially useful tactic for fashion brands to gather alternate, accessible images of products worn by real people. Fashion brand – The Whitepepper collects customer photos via email and features them on their “Who’s Wearing The Whitepepper” board. All pins link back to the brand’s ecommerce store where Pinners can shop the looks. There you have it – 7 methods that you can put into practice with your business.

Be sure to keep us posted on your progress and if we missed any tips or techniques that you’re using to reach your customers on Pinterest, please share them with us in the comment section.

Recruiting News – 6 Ways to Lead Change for Maximum Positive Impact

Charles Darwin is often quoted AND is more often misquoted. The most frequent transgression is, “Only the strong survive.” Fact is, there is no accurate record of him ever saying or writing it.

Here is what Darwin likely said about strength and survival, but even this might be most accurately attributed to a Louisiana State University business professor named Leon C. Megginson and his interpretations of Darwin’s work:

It is not the strongest of the species that survives,
nor the most intelligent that survives.
It is the one that is most adaptable to change.

Be an Innovator

Those who know the story of David versus Goliath understand it is about an underdog – a much smaller, weaker opponent – who takes on a champion of greater strength and size and wins. It is not in the winning we find a moral, but in the HOW. Just how could David slay a giant bully named Goliath?

David was incapable of meeting Goliath’s strength and power, but he was capable of adjusting to

Breast Cancer Screening Policies Questioned Again

Researchers conducting a large national registry study recommended changes to current breast cancer screening guidelines that would make family history a more important consideration in setting ages to begin regular mammography.

Elham Kharazmi, MD, PhD, of the National Center for Tumor Diseases in Heidelberg, Germany, and colleagues looked at data from large Swedish data sets on 5,099,172 women born there from 1932 onward with at least one known first-degree relative. Of these women in the latest dataset from 2017, 2.3% were diagnosed with primary invasive breast cancer, the majority of whom (86.4%) had no family history of the disease.

As described in the team’s nationwide cohort study online in JAMA Oncology, the risk-adapted starting age of screening was defined as the age by which women with a family history of breast cancer attained a 10-year cumulative risk that was similar to the average risk for women at the recommended age of screening initiation in the general population

Protein could offer therapeutic target for pancreatic cancer

A protein that drives growth of pancreatic cancer, and which could be a target for new treatments, has been identified by researchers at the Crick.

The study, published in Nature Cell Biology, looked into the most common type of pancreatic cancer, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. This is an aggressive cancer that develops from secretory and tubular cells of the pancreas.

There are no effective therapies to treat this cancer and only 8% of patients survive beyond five years after diagnosis.

The researchers analysed a specific group of tumour cells, called cancer stem cells. Similar to how healthy human stem cells repair tissues and organs, these cells have the ability to start new tumours and they can also differentiate into different types of tumour cells.

As these cells are a driving force behind cancer growth, being able to identify if they are present is an important step towards the development of new treatments. By analyzing the gene expression of these cancer stem cells, the

8 Ways to Expand Your Reach and Accelerate Growth

How many times do we need to be reminded, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. In the spirit of using opposites for illustration, think on this: Some things in life are just too good NOT to be true.

Get Rich Fast – too good to be true, or too good NOT to be true? Depends on how you answer these two questions:

What does it mean to be rich?
How does one live a richer, fuller life?

To answer, you have to understand the word rich. It is derived from a root word meaning reach. You become richer when you reach out and expand any dimension of your life, accomplished by leaping outside your comfort zone and targeting big, hairy audacious goals (BHAGS) or Wildly Important Goals (WIGs).

Fact: while we all live under the same sky, we all do not have the same view of the horizon. This is precisely why we must all constantly seek to extend our reach. Here is a 9-point plan for growing richer:

Reach for greater wisdom. This is very personal, yet every life requires a

Why You NEED to Hire a Professional Graphic Designer For your Branding

Why You NEED to Hire a Professional Graphic Designer For your Branding

Sure, cutting costs is ideal when you’re starting up a new business. You are bleeding money left and right: employees, new bills, computer, office furniture, software…etc. You make a list of priorities: What you need vs. what you want. Careful. Far too many businesses make the mistake of putting their branding at the bottom of their lists, and I’m first going to tell you why it should be on the top, and then I’m going to tell you why it is absolutely crucial to hire a professional.

Why is your branding so important? So your cousin Esther has played around in Photoshop a few times and she’s pretty sure she can throw something together that will look good. She finds a couple of fonts on Fontspace and you guys go back and forth until you see one that catches your eye. She slaps it inside a blue circle outline, adds a drop shadow, and throws you a jpeg to put up on your brand new Facebook page. “Perfect”

7 Peak Performance Essentials Pros Use and Others Will Not

At a time when the World Series has just ended in usual grand fashion and college hoops kicks off, beginning in the Garden last night, and with all the debate around student athletes potentially being paid for endorsements in two years, our thoughts turn to what it truly means to be a pro.

When one thinks of being a pro, our mind often turns to athletes who have reached the pinnacle of performance. By that definition, a professional is anyone who makes a living in a field where many are amateurs, and their work is characterized by reaching seemingly unattainable levels of performance while holding to the highest possible technical and ethical standards in that field.

In the world of business, one generally thinks of a professional as someone who has received special training then delivers outstanding results, having honed particular talents into an enviable set of valuable skills. No matter whether you think of athletes that kiss championship cups, stars that win Emmy’s or Oscars

Top 10 WordPress Themes for Real Estate Agents And Investors

Top 10 WordPress Themes for Real Estate Agents And Investors

When you’re building a real estate website with a basic, out-of-the-box WordPress content management system – one of the most important things you can invest in is a well-designed and easy-to-use WordPress theme.

Luckily, there are A LOT of great WordPress themes available for those of us in the real estate industry. Whether you’re an investor, realtor, broker, property manager, landlord or fill-in-the-blank… chances are there’s a solid WordPress theme somewhere out there that can be tailored to suit your specific purpose.

The problem is – most real estate professionals are NOT professional web designers. We don’t necessarily know what to look for in a great theme, and even if we did – most of us have no idea where to find all the best options on the market today.

With this in mind, I’ve taken some time to identify what I believe are ten of the highest-rated, widely-used and most flexible real estate WordPress themes available today. These themes were selected based on five key criteria…

1. High Ratings & Reviews
I’ve used a few of these themes in the past, but not all of them. Since there’s no way I could ever get enough hands-on experience with all of these options, I’m placing a heavy emphasis on the number of high ratings the each of these themes has received. Essentially, a theme can’t make it on this list unless it received at least a 4.5 out of 5 stars.

2. Ongoing Updates
Not all WordPress themes are created and supported by well-respected developers who continually release updates to keep their themes fully compatible with the latest version of WordPress. While this kind of ongoing attention-to-detail is never guaranteed, the themes below are coming from marketplaces and developers that are generally known for this kind of continual updating of their products.

3. Detailed Documentation and Ease of Use
If you’re not overly familiar with the inner-workings of WordPress, it can be a real challenge to figure out how to work with certain themes and get them to display exactly the way you want them to.

Unfortunately, most WordPress themes (even the paid ones) don’t come with much (if any) one-on-one support to get your site in final working order. To the extent possible, this list contains themes that come with some sort of clear instructions and (when possible) support.

4. SEO Friendly
Your choice of WordPress theme can have a major impact on the “SEO friendliness” of your website. The built-in search engine optimization features that come with a WordPress theme can definitely play an important role in your website’s ability to be tracked and monitored by search engines. With this in mind, these themes all come with some element of on-site SEO features that can be used to improve your websites search-ability.

5. Supported Plugins
Part of what makes WordPress such a great website platform is the fact that it can be integrated with plugins. A plugin is a piece of software that can be used to extend the functionality or add helpful new features to your WordPress site.

Not all themes will support every plugin. This is why it’s important to choose a theme that will be able to work with the plugins that will boost your website’s performance to the level you need to serve your prospects and customers.

7 Ways to Optimize Your Assets for Peak Performance

Optimize your vision. You will never go further than the vision that guides you. In order to achieve more than you ever thought possible, optimize your vision for the future. See for yourself a future that is bigger, bolder and brighter than your past. It is the capacity to see the invisible that inspires us to do the seemingly impossible. A compelling and fully optimized vision can change your life, your business, your community and even humanity. Vision is the only thing that has ever lead to change.
Optimize your energy. Energy, not time, is the fundamental currency of high performance. Those who reach peak performance engage fully and disengage completely, periodically. That act of disengagement allows for essential reflection and renewal. As obvious as this seems, we often fail to take into account the importance energy has in our lives. Absent of the correct quantity, quality, focus and forces of energy, we all become compromised in any endeavor we undertake. Remember, a
