    I recently hosted a workshop for business owners where I kept hearing the same question: “How can I get press?” Before I could even respond, the excuses started piling up: “I’m just getting started.” “I don’t have the kind of network you have.” “I don’t have a publicist or PR experience.” Guess what?

    This post was written by Genpink author: Nelli London is one of the most beautiful cites in the world. I recently made the trip up there with my sister to explore the vibrant city and see my relatives. We got lucky with warm weather (and some wind) and lots of sunshine (it’s supposed to rain every day, right??). Throughout the week, we ventured around the city visiting popular tourist sites and hanging out with the locals (aka – my cousin and his friends). There’s so much to do in London, and it was hard to squeeze in my wish list of attractions in just one week! Here are…

Texas girl Sunny Sweeney and chart-topper Justin Moore opened up for Lambert. Both played a great a show and got me in the…

    Over the last few years, there has been a dramatic rise in the number of small businesses and startups around the world, with each one being driven by entrepreneurs filled with unfaltering ambition, energy and desire. However, not every is lucky enough to early stage or seed funding, which makes most startups and small businesses obsessed with the words like low-cost and cost-effective. Crowdsourcing as a Solution.

  • Renovating To Enhance Your Business

    If you are a startup looking to add value to your business you should consider taking out a renovations loan. There are a number of reasons why this is a great option for your startup. Every business has a lot of overheads and especially in the early years. There are things like buying the office space, maybe a warehouse depending on your business, and that is just the tip of the iceberg. You may end up buying an office only to realise that you are going to need to perform some renovations on the space to get it up to standard. This is going to eat further into your capital and could end up…

    If time is money – and in the world of business, it surely is – then honing the bottom line whilst at the same time hitting the marketing message home hard and accurately is key to survival in an increasingly competitive and straitened internationalised business landscape. Or putting it rather more succinctly, reduced marketing budgets have to be worked twice as hard nowadays, with little or no room for error. Certainly, career-ending casualties can be greatly reduced by the judicious use of companies offering decent translation services in the UK, ever-more vital if the overseas…
  • VoIP – Why Is It So Lucrative For Small And Medium Businesses?

    admin

    There seems to be a lot of hype surrounding VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) and unified communications. VoIP service providers call it the best thing to happen to small businesses but seriously, how advantageous is it to SMBs (small and medium businesses)? A recent report by the company Software Advice, where more than 350 mid-level businesses were surveyed (the respondents made less than $180 million or £120 a year), revealed reasons why mid-cards feel integration of VoIP to be daunting. More than 50 percent of the buyers were new to VoIP. Being new meant they weren’t fully sure of…

  • Are Your Goals “Too Big”?

    Natalie MacNeil
    18 Mar 2015 | 6:53 am
    When I’m speaking at events, there’s always someone who comes up to me after my talk to share how they feel like a failure because they aren’t reaching their launch goals, or goal to write a book, or they aren’t making 6 figures. Every time, I tell them: Stick with it! Anything is possible, but it is challenging to earn 6 figures when you’ve only been in business for a year and you began with no startup capital and no customers. You can’t get discouraged when it doesn’t all happen right away! In today’s episode of She Takes on the World TV I want to talk with you about…

    Today I want to talk to you about surfing. When I was in Bali hosting my retreat, a few in our group decided to take some boards out and hit the waves. I opted for a long walk on the beach instead, because I love watching people surf! (And after trying surfing once, I realized I’m a MUCH better spectator, haha!) Anyway, it was a gorgeous day, and around sunset two guys who’d been in the water all day long caught a HUGE wave, and totally rocked it. I chatted with them after, and they were ecstatic about their luck with that one single wave. Then one of the guys said something really…

  • Build The Mailing List Of Your Dreams

    Natalie MacNeil
    25 Feb 2015 | 9:23 am
    When it comes to building a business online (or even offline), there is one thing you ABSOLUTELY need to set yourself up for success: an engaged mailing list. By “engaged,” I mean a list packed with people eager to learn more about what you do, who want to stay updated on what’s going on in your corner of the web, and who, ultimately, will become your paying clients. When I started She Takes on the World as a wee blog back in 2008 things were so different than they are now. The gospel of “build your list!” had yet to be preached everywhere.

    Daisy
    3 Mar 2015 | 5:28 pm
    Do bear in mind the climate factor when choosing the place as some areas are very hot during May, June and July. Some places rain a lot. Australia had to go through from a ‘correction’ around four years ago, but improved to post annual house price rises at a modest rate for the past three years. Property price rises are decreasing but there is less buyer interest in the market, so for those who are thinking of buying, are in luck. Statistics suggest that the rate of economic tightening in Australia is less than in many other industrialized countries, so the recession may be less dangerous…

  • Best fishing spots in Australia

    Daisy
    7 Aug 2014 | 3:29 am
    Australia is a fisherman’s heaven. Almost every coastline that encircles Australia teems with life and every location provides its own unique fishing experience. There are great fishing spots for the kayak fisherman, the boat fisherman and the land angler. There are some spots that offer nicer scenery and others that boast the greatest variety of fishes. That’s why it is so hard to narrow down the best fishing spots in Australia. But, I have done it anyway. While this list is not definitive and certainly not exhaustive, the spots chosen are some of the best in their respective regions.

    Archery as a sport in Australia and all over the world has been gaining greater traction these days. And no wonder because it is a great sport for training patience, consistency and resilience. It is also great for overall body conditioning. Research about the sport Before starting out, you should learn a bit more about the sport, including the types of archery available such as compound bow. Besides the archery you see at the Olympics (called target archery by the way), there are also other disciplines like 3D archery involving shooting at animal-size targets and field archery where you…

Since I’m the type to follow through with my vote/word, I signed up for another week of the meal delivery service! They also happened to have Kokkari’s famous lamb meatballs on the menu that week, so it was a pretty easy decision. We chopped up the octopus at the end for easier consumption, but yes, it came as a tentacle, suckers and all.

Hard to believe we’re just about getting through the first quarter. I tagged fewer photos with the #365infocus project hashtag, but still managed to do a pretty good job of posting daily.

I guess the thing that is even more surprising is that my reaction is typically something along the lines of, "Huh. Well, there's that." It's not something that wrecks my day or makes me stressed out and on the search for anti-aging products. It's crazy when I think back to the insecurities of my teens and early-twenties, because I realize now how much I missed out on by not embracing each stage of life and the beauty it brings.…able to get a million…

Last week, I had this panicky moment of, "Wait, what is the actual plan? Do I really want to use the same hospital? Should I research other options? Why did I wait until halfway through this pregnancy to even think about this?"In a way, it probably doesn't make sense that I would even desire to make a change from my first birth experience as I approach my second.

So! How does one emotionally survive winter when one HAAAAAATES cold?” It’s getting to be the end of winter (fingers crossed), so I thought I’d tackle this.

It’s like a quiet little city then BAM, ten thousand people disembark and flood the tiny little streets. The weather is pretty consistently 85 degrees or so. It’s safe and walkable and tiny enough to walk the entire city rather quickly. Though your feet might hurt because cobblestone.

    Welp, in case any of you guys aren't following me on Instagram or Facebook, I wanted to get a post up to say that I officially broke 2:00 hours on a half marathon.  And I did it with some time to spare!!On Sunday, March 22nd, I ran the very hilly Atlanta Publix Half Marathon in 1:57:52!!!!!!!!I seriously cannot believe I did that, but the numbers don't lie!I smile just looking at that number and am really so happy and proud of that time.  And amazed, actually.  I've really been looking forward to sharing the whole story with you and will do so over the next couple of days but…

    Hey everybody!  It's the night before race day and I'm getting the jitters!!  Tomorrow is the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon and my first "official" attempt to break 2:00 hours on a half marathon, although I am not confident about reaching that goal in the morning.Tomorrow will be my third "official" half marathon that I have RACED and the first I have done since 2013.  I ran 13+ miles multiple times throughout 2014 in my training for the two full marathons, including the Saratoga Palio Half Marathon and of course, Jessica's Birthday Blizzard Half Marathon.  But, I didn't…

  • A weekend in Lagos, Nigeria

    17 Mar 2015 | 4:52 pm
    I told you about my Friday in Nigeria, which although technically the “start” of the weekend, involved a customer dinner, so it was kind of work. Therefore, I will start my weekend with Saturday morning. I met two of my coworkers at 10:00 a.m. in my hotel for the hotel brunch. It was a buffet breakfast that I had been avoiding all week by eating protein bars in my room for breakfast. I don’t regret that because had I eaten that breakfast every morning, the week would have been more damaging than it was (and I’m fairly confident it was pretty damaging.)Aside from the breakfast being…

    Following the customer meetings on Thursday, we came back and worked in the office until about 7:00 p.m. when we left to go to some sort of music event.  I had no idea what it really was but when we got there, I immediately felt the vibe and was excited about whatever was in store.We were there early, which turned out well because we were able to get seats and order some food and drinks before the place got crowded.  It turns out that it was an open mic performance where anyone could sign up and play 1-2 songs for the audience.  The last time that I was at an open mic in this…

    I attended a team offsite event for work this week and to help us all get to know each other better, we were asked to bring in one photo that describes our "story." I ended up bringing in this:Big Wheel bike Because around the time I was 3 or 4 years old, I made my parents amused and proud when I was riding my Big Wheel down the street in my original home state of Washington and I chose to turn around in the driveway in front of a retirement home. Well, one elderly woman was sitting outside and did not like that I was doing that so she kept trying to make me stop. But I didn't stop,…

I tend to acknowledge that they exist and then go about my day, but I am feeling more and more of a draw to trendsetting behavior. I have even went to an ombre hair color….shut the front door!

All you need is a bag of wheat grass seeds and a seed sprouter (or you can use a thin tupper container with holes in the bottom to drain water).  You will need to plan ahead, since seeds take about 7-10 days to sprout and mature.  You’ll also need to keep the sprouts near your…

In high school I had done more than three times the required amount, but it was the first time I really thought about why I chose those particular activities. I thought about answering the student’s question by telling her what I did: “I spent most of my time going door-to-door collecting unwanted books.” But that hadn’t been how I viewed my community service.

While we all know that you can’t really plan how your childbirth is going to go, you’ll find that most hospitals/OBs/midwifes/doulas encourage you to write out your birth preferences (or at least they do in San Francisco). Some people get REALLY into their birth plan, stating what kind of lighting they would like, the music they want, the tone of voice they would like to be spoken to in, etc. etc. It can get pretty nuts. But really, the main point of the birth plan is to provide quick and easy access to important health info that your medical records might not…

After walking around rather aimlessly for what felt like hours, Kevin finally gave up his secret quest for finding the perfect location, and in the middle of an alley in Rome’s Jewish ghetto, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

Now it may sound ridiculous, but all the writers reading this will understand exactly where I am coming from. Every writer has a particular medium they enjoy more than any other. Some storytellers prefer writing in notebooks or on cocktail napkin, some like their typewriters (super vintage), and some are content on their laptops.

It is no surprise, e-readers are replacing hardback and paperback books everyday. Why shouldn’t they, the newest Kindle White, for example, is a mere $79, weighs less than a pound, and most novels are selling at a price lower than $20. On an iPad you can download your local libraries app and rent books without ever getting out of bed. Technology has gathered the world’s collective knowledge and creative writing and made…

I also have a terrible habit of overanalyzing just about everything in my life, which is not conducive to creative work. It can be difficult to remove my ego from the equation and just do…
