Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Have a Meeting App

Good Day Planet Earth,

Let’s cut to the chase.  No one likes being unprepared for a meeting.  So why go through with it?  Technology is absolutely blowing up and is increasing by the minute.  We’re in the age where if you don’t have a cell phone or a tablet, you are a major dinosaur.  I was watching Family Feud just a few minutes ago, and it inspired me to create this blog.  Here we go…

Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Have a Meeting App

3.  So your boss doesn’t hassle you:  Isn’t this always a goal, regardless of what work topic?  If you arrive to your meeting organized and prepared, you give your boss a tremendous impression.  Your boss will have a hard time critiquing you.  If you have a meeting app, you are letting your boss know that you are all-in for adapting to technology.

2.  Stay organized and reduce stress:  Having all your meeting notes in one app is an effective organization strategy.  It keeps your desk nice and clean!  You know where to find the information.  Using scrap paper, or a notebook/notepad causes more stress; therefore, you forget stuff, and you may not give your boss the greatest impression.

1.  It’s 2014.  It’s the new day and age:  Meeting App in, Notebook out.  Pens and paper are a thing in the past.  This is how one organizes and prepares for a meeting now.  An app in general has so many features now, that we do not need notebooks/notepads anymore.  So when you go to the meeting podium, have your tablet as your guide from now on.

You are more pumped up than ever to get a meeting app.  The one I recommend is Meeting Assistant, or MA for short.  It is available for the iPad and soon for Android devices.  It was found in Finland but is making its way around the world.  You are only a 9.99 investment away from being the next meeting superstar!

Thanks for reading my blog, and enjoy the rest of your day!

Have a Good Friday and Stay Tuned

It’s another Friday at the office. The Indian Summer continues (supposed to be 78 degrees today). May this day go by fast for you.

Not only am I going to work even harder to make a career out of social media, I am pursuing other work from home opportunities
too. They are out there; the question is, how much effort are you willing to put in? No income opportunity falls on your lap. You’re fooling yourself if you can make $10,000 a month with little work put into it. What I am going to do is share my insights on working from home, from the research I have done. Until then, goodbye!

Back to Work

I love the movie, “Office Space”.  Top 5 in my book!  Why?  The movie is 14 years old!  Because I can 100 percent relate to it.

I truly believe I am the real life Peter Gibbons.  I go to work with a chip on my shoulder every day.  The number one goal at work is to not get hassled, not my words, Gibbons’ words.  You know it is time to find work that you are going to enjoy more, when you have a situation like I have.

Picture yourself on a beach, okay, too far-fetched.  Picture yourself in your own home, with a shirt and sweatpants, working and making bucks.  This is my dream, and this is my dream job!  Google “work from home”.  Websites claim you can make $15,000 in a month.  If it is this easy, why isn’t everybody doing it?  Because it’s not and takes a tremendous amount of dedication to do it.  I haven’t been fully dedicated to social media management lately, but I have been posting through Hootsuite as much as I can.

Start with small financial goals; make enough to pay for bills and food.  Back to work!  It’s time to pursue some social media jobs again, now that the weather is cooling down.  If you are in a similar situation like I have, it is never too late to make a change.  Whatever the case may be, find your passion that is going to make your life more enjoyable.  I’M OUT!

Words of Summer Wisdom

Enjoy the Summer, because it isn’t going to last…

which is why I am sitting outside on this gorgeous Tuesday Morning. I go to work in less than 90 minutes, but I had to take my I-Pad and my wireless keyboard so I can enjoy the moment.

Being outside really clears my thoughts too. Most of us don’t have glamorous jobs and don’t enjoy going to them; however, simply being alive to enjoy Summer is all I’m focusing on right now.

I’m done at 5, just a short shift today. Dinner plans are to grab a few subs for the family and eat them outside. I just can’t get enough of this weather!

Next time, you start to think about how your life is not picture perfect, gather your thoughts and get outside to enjoy the moment. Thank you!

Don’t Stop!

Don’t Stop!

Whatever your dream is, keep busting your butt, and someday you will achieve your goal.

Picture yourself as an established business. You built your client list. Social media is booming. Customer satisfaction is at its peak. Ask yourself…

Is there room for improvement?

ALWAYS! Whatever your job may be, there is room for improvement. There are always opportunities to add more clients. The place I work at now, has been in business since 1969, yet when I am helping customers with their payment and delivery setup, it is their first time buying something.

Keep building relationships, even if your established and profitable. The growth is infinite, no matter the economy.

Keep Chasing Your Dream

Social media is fascinating, plain and simple.  I have built a pretty good Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn following for the little time I spend on the site.  I’m pretty excited about that, because I can imagine what I could accomplish if I spent more time using social media.

Face it, we have to bring home the bacon.  I am a single dude living one Summer day at a time.  I enjoy eating at various restaurants, social drinking and golfing, which means less time gets devoted to my long term goal of working-from-home using social media platforms, helping businesses establish their social media presence.  I have one social media job under my belt.  It’s going to take time to reach my goal, but my advice to anyone in my situation is to not give up.  Work your butt off when you have the time, and give it your 100% effort.
