Have you been using live video services like Periscope? I’ve been testing the live streaming waters by using Facebook Live (you can check out my first live videos here). And, in true Facebook fashion, there are new Facebook Live updates.
There’s no doubt that technology can play a significant role in improving the productivity of modern-day entrepreneurs. Of course, using technology is not enough. Today’s digital entrepreneurs must also be willing take the time to find and learn how to use the right tech tools and to improve their tech skills.
Bounce Rate. Calls to Action. Lead magnet. Inbound Marketing. What do these terms have in common? They’re all marketing terms you will likely come across as you begin to promote your small business or freelancing gig. And, they’re also discussed in today’s blog post (along with a few others), so be sure to bookmark this post.
” … a new small study suggests that embracing a wide variety of healthier behaviors at once, including changes to diet and exercise, may be even more beneficial … people who changed several aspects of their life to be healthier saw bigger improvements in their mood and stress levels compared to people in other trials who changed just one part of their lifestyle.”

Are you using Facebook Live? I am! Well, I’m just starting to.
Today — Star Wars Day — I recorded my second Facebook Live video (see it at the end of this post). Unlike Google+ Hangouts, I didn’t jump at the chance to test out Facebook’s new video app.
First of all, it wasn’t made available to all users when it first rolled out. Only verified peeps got the green light to try it out at the time. And, second of all, I was a little more interested in learning about Blab.
So, now here I am giving it a go. I have to tell you, the experience was pretty good. I think you should give it a try, too.
“The stress, long hours, and sedentary nature of your modern office job are sucking the life out of you– literally. Around 86% of American workers sit all day at work. If you’re one of them, Alan Hedge, a design and ergonomics professor at Cornell, recommends you change to positions every eight minutes, and take a two-minute “moving break” at least twice an hour.”

Thanks for stopping by my website! If you’ve landed here for the first time looking for tech coaching or if you were searching for organizing tips and tricks, the good news is that you’re in the right place.
Confused? Well, let me explain. (Psst! If you just wanna grab the organizing posts, just scroll down this page!)
In my past life, I was (and sorta still am) a professional organizer. The difference is that in the past, I helped clients in their home and offices kick clutter to the curb. I also helped them learn strategies to be more productive. Fast forward several years later, and I’m still focused on productivity. But, organizing, not so much.
These days, I exclusively focus on helping clients use technology tools to be more productive in their companies. Sometimes that means helping them learn about new small business, task, and time management apps.
Or, it can also mean helping them to come up with blogging or social media strategies so that they don’t become time sucks. You can jump back to my home page to get more deets about that.
So, what about the folks who still want organizing information? Not to worry!
Though hands-on organizing is not my main gig anymore, I’m happy to share tips and tricks I’ve learned (and still use!) over the last several years. I kept several of those posts and you can find them just by scrolling down on this page, clicking here, or checking out some of my favorite posts below.

Do you know what keyword stuffing is? No worries, if you don’t. Today’s post will explain what exactly that is and why you should stay away from cramming keywords in every nook and cranny of your content.
If you’re a writer or a blogger, one of the essential tasks you can’t ignore is editing your content. Proper grammar is important for several reasons (more on that in a bit). But, getting it right can be downright tricky.
English can be complicated. Two words can sound the same and have different meanings. Sometimes, two words are spelled exactly alike and yet have different pronunciations. And, the written word can sound like an alien language when compared to the conversations you have with your friends or co-workers.
Nobody said this grammar thing was easy. But, if you know the pitfalls to avoid — and you have the right tools — you’ll be a grammar rock star. Yes, I said rock star.
You’ve probably heard that content is king. But, the images that complement that content rock, too!
One great reason for including images with your posts is that they tend to get more traffic and engagement than those with only text. Images can also reinforce your content and help stir up the emotions of your readers, both of which can make them get up and dance!
And, by dance, I mean help turn them into loyal subscribers. So, why not reward your loyal readers by varying your visual content?
