Most websites, in fact, lose 97 percent of their traffic, meaning only 3 percent is converting to sales.

“Rose doesn’t like that.” “Rose will fix this.” If I were to talk like this, especially to myself, it might seem a little nutty. But there might be a good reason to start -- especially if I ever found myself in a stressful situation where I needed to think clearly.   In a recent study, professors from Michigan State University and the University of Michigan conducted two experiments to find out the effects that self-talk in third person can have on an individual’s mood and emotions. And guess what? Talking to yourself in third person can actually help to regulate [...]

My parents are amazing. I can confidently say I couldn't have found success without them. But, when I started my first business, the toughest thing was convincing them that the entrepreneurial journey (rather than a degree in engineering or an MBA program) was best for me. How did I win them over? The key to convince conservative parents to support your entrepreneurial dreams is to prepare them in advance. Make sure they know this isn't a spur-of-the-moment idea. Otherwise, they could be caught off guard, try to protect you from what they see as certain failure and even go so far as to disown you [...]

Like Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry 1 (ThyBlackMan.com) We are gearing up for yet another school year and while many children are excited about returning to school, many children are dreading the return. For many students, school is seen as something of a chore, something that does not really benefit them aside from reading and writing, yet something that they must do in order to make it out of their parent’s home. Many parents are dreading the return to school as well. Parents who children struggle in the classroom or in different school settings may find themselves battling anxiety as [...]
