how to make videos on a budget

I love working with people and getting them to consider different things for their social media programs. Often times when clients are creating their own content - we will help them come up with ways to maximize their best communication skills online. Example of this ... some people are better speakers than writers and vice versa ... some people are better writers than speakers. I myself fall into the last category ... writing is my comfort zone - video is not my comfort zone. Both ways can work for online content. For those of you who want to dabble and start to do your own YouTube videos for your business I've put together my list of "needs" for that. Your Smartphone: Yep ... you read that right - just your [...]

reading your way to happiness

I don't know about you ... but I LOVE to read. I have a problem finding time to set aside to read however. Well okay, time is an issue but so is the fact that reading inevitably puts me to sleep. I don't know what it is ... the left / right eye movement? The brain dead factor since I'm usually reading at night or maybe it's the warm green tea I'm usually sipping. Either way ... reading is usually sleepy time for me. Since I'm always looking at ways to be more efficient and I'm always multi-tasking, I decided to give Audible.com (affiliate link) a try. Audible is basically a books on tape type of format. Except it's all digital and all done through the power of Amazon. My [...]

best orlando hair stylist Jenn Lenos

Florida has been full of new experiences for me since I moved here. The new types of birds, the warnings about not getting too close to lake edges, alligators, bugs .... oh, the bugs and the list goes on. One of the hardest things to get used to is what the Florida humidity does to your hair! It was something I complained about when I first moved here on vine in fact! You can watch the short video here: Vine Florida Hair My hair has never been curlier than it has here in Florida! One of the fantastic people I met since moving here to Orlando was a great hair stylist Jenn Lenos at Vinnacia Hair Goddess. I figured anyone that calls themselves a Hair Goddess HAS to know a [...]

20 new things go to a new park

Part of my #20NewThings project / challenge was to try and get me to go different places and try different things. As humans, we get stuck in our habits very easily ... in fact, there is a great article by Mona D. Fishbane, PhD titled "Why Change Is So Hard: The Power Of Habit In The Human Brain" that is worth the read on this subject. Without knowing it ... this whole #20NewThings project of mine is actually a great way to encourage and accept change in my life. It's apparently science people ... and it's called Neuroplasticity. So while you read up on those articles ... you may find like I did that this little 20 new things is a great idea. It's also not that hard to do [...]

20 new things - try new food

As part of the 20 New Things Project I created for myself - I decided that trying new foods should be on this list. Not just trying new foods - but actively going out of my way to pick up something strange at the store that I had no idea what to do with. Beyond reading what the grocery store sign said ... I had no clue what I was going to do with the items I bought above. Those 2 new items: Dragon Fruit and Rambutan (or as I learned Lychee) I took these things home and thought ... now what? Okay not really - I actually put out on Facebook a photo of the fruit and asked ... "What do I do with these?" and sure enough my [...]

how to hire a freelancer

So I'm not particularly proud of the title ... but I really couldn't come up with something else that accurately described a basic concept: Hiring a freelancer and how you might be bad at it. The purpose of this post is not to embarrass anyone or point fingers, but rather to help educate those entrepreneurs, businesses and start-ups on ways to creating great relationships with your outsourced companies. Freelancers and I'll add outsourced companies, work with businesses on a contract basis. This helps small businesses, start-ups and even large businesses to scale work on a budget, start new divisions and test market new products. The list goes on for reasons that businesses hire freelancers and outsource to other companies vs. hiring employees. Most people in this day and age have [...]

bo deaf old dog

Well 2014 is ending on a great note! I added to my little family a new addition - an Australian Shepard named Bo! (seen above) Isn't he adorable? This past weekend, the Pet Alliance of Orlando ran a great campaign which allowed anyone to adopt a dog over the weekend for free. How generous was that? Especially since most of these dogs / cats being surrendered had to have vet checks, shots, medication, etc. All that came free if I adopted a dog! (or a cat for others) I had been planning on getting a dog since my Aussie Shepard / Border Collie mix moved on to the farmhouse of dogs in the sky 2 years ago. Still miss that dog (Buffy) greatly. So since I had a new dog [...]
