Time for Change

So how about it? Are you thinking of getting new clothes for the month, for the season?

Well, the change can be spurred by a loss of weight or the increase of it 🙂 Or perhaps you’ve realized that your clothes have been on repeat mode for years now and you can really use something new.

Whatever may be the reason for that change on what your closet holds, it is not really a bad idea to make a budget on how much you plan to spend on some new clothes. I think we can all be smart on how we spend every bill we have or should I say, how we use every credit card we have 🙂

If chic and affordable are the two top points for your shopping consideration, then online shopping can be one way forward for you.

Now have you been thinking of getting some new leggings lately? Then consider these really cool leggings 🙂

 

Or you want more than black and gray this time, so why not go blush pink or tri-color? 🙂

 

More cool leggings at great prices are just a click away. Yup, just CLICK HERE.

If you’re looking for more than leggings, there’s plenty more to consider for your new look. Check out ZAFUL for more fashion choices. Take note that they have an ongoing Autumn Sale!

Technology and Your Business

Sometimes we might think because something works, there is no need to change or improve it.

It is easier to do what has always been done. After all, if you have already invested time and all the other needed to resources to make something work, why would you want to make revisions on it again?

“If it ain’t broken, it ain’t need fixin’.” Unfortunately, if we get stuck to thinking this way, especially in business, we might eventually end up losing our customers, clients – our market. They will move on to someone who gives them something we cannot give or perhaps refuse to give.

In life and perhaps more so in business, we need to embrace change, innovation.

To many (if not all) businesses, to welcome what is new and to be ahead of the game means to adapt to the latest technology and yes to adopt it where it is needed in our business. Gone are the days when artificial intelligence is only hinted about in books, in movies. It can no longer be stopped in saying hello to our world today.

The reality is that technology is affecting, even transforming business. If technology is such a key thing in how we run businesses today (or even how we live day by day), how should we face it?

Decide to learn all you can about it. It all starts with the mind. We need to decide to learn all that we can in terms of technology that affects our business and is useful to our business. To access the information we need about technology, the internet is our easy companion to do this. We can also decide to take even short courses that could help us in our way forward towards technological know-how. Again, the internet is our ally in accessing even online courses that could be very helpful to us. Some of these courses are even free.

Welcome a tech person in your team. If you do not have one yet in your business, now is the time to welcome a tech person in your workplace. This is especially true if learning the latest technology you need for your business is too much for you and there is no one in your team or staff who has the tech savvy you need. Hey, we are not meant to live or work alone. Welcome that tech person in your team now.

Keep up with the trends. It’s not just learning about it from online resources, books, the media, it also means connecting with people who can understand your business and tech journey and who can also give you input. It’s about learning from those who are two steps or more ahead of you in the tech industry like Blake Rubin. To keep up with the trends may also mean welcoming a mentor or coach in this area of your life.

Let’s make technology work for our business, for our life. It’s not going away. It’s not going to die. It’s just going to keep improving. So let’s face it and harness it well.

4 Tips to Keep Succeeding in Business

So, you’ve found business success. That’s great news.

The challenge now is to keep succeeding in business or growing it. These 4 tips can be helpful in making it possible:

Be Innovative. To innovate is to “make changes in something established, especially by introducing new methods, ideas, or products.” It also means introducing something new. I think the keywords here are change and new. You need to be able embrace whatever change may be needed to further improve your product or service.

There must be no fear to embrace what may be new but needed in creating and producing your products and even in promoting or marketing it. This could also mean taking steps in getting to know your market, your clients or customers better. And this may mean using tools you’ve never tried before in doing so, like embedded analytics.

Get Mentored and Mentor Others. Your journey to success need not be done alone. Learn from others who have gone further on in their business. Find someone you can consider and ask to be your mentor. They can help you navigate not only your success but also in avoiding the potholes of mistakes and failures.

Give back from your success and reach out to mentor others as well who are still in the path you have already gone past in your business or entrepreneurial journey. It is a good thing to exercise the Golden Rule: Do unto others what you want others to do unto you.

Refuse to Only Focus on Profits. As returns and profits come in, you may be tempted to just focus on them. Make the effort to say no and to remember that it’s not all about the money. We have heard of countless stories of businesses that eventually folded up because its owners have just become too focused on the profits, getting greedy as their businesses took off the ground. When the focus is just centered on money, the quality of the products or services begin to decline, and a downward spiral can unfortunately occur leading to the eventual closure of the business.

Take Care of Your Staff. It always makes sense to do so. Your staff or employees are instrumental in making your business succeed. Know how to reward them for their performance and contribution. Create a good environment for them to work and thrive. Know their needs as well as that of their family, there might be ways you can help them like offering scholarships to their children or providing them affordable loans to help them own a home or car.

It is good news to succeed in business, but the better news is to keep succeeding in it. And you can be intentional in making that happen.
