    No matter how local your business might feel, you’re living in a globalised economy. And, from the tiniest newsagents to the grandest superstores, exploiting your increased connectivity with the world could maximise your profits. Because, although it might seem like mega-corporations are the only people who can dominate the internet, the beauty of search engines is that you can corner your niche market without even breaking the bank. But if you want to tackle the global markets and create a higher cash flow for your business, here are the issues you have to consider: You’ve got mail.

    Dear Annika,Today you are 10 months old. Ten! Only two more of these until you are ONE, and we are done with the monthly photos. Judging from your desire to rip your 10-month sticker off your onesie while I took your photo today, I'd say that might not be a bad thing. This month has been all about the standing. You always want to be upright, and you're very good. You pull yourself to standing on almost anything, and you only need a surface of an inch or two (like a puzzle box) to get yourself upright. Once you're up, you no longer need to hold on to anything to stay that way, and will…

    I am so deeply grateful to be celebrating my fourth “transplantaversary” today. Yesterday marks the day I entered surgery to receive a new liver, and today marks the day that I awoke for the first time with new life within me. Without my gift of life, I wouldn’t have received the opportunity to love again, complete my education, visit new countries across the world, become a godmother, meet new friends, touch more lives, or savor every ordinary day. The journey has – at times – been treacherous and almost too much to bear. There has been fear and pain. But today,…

    Adelyn had her first t-ball season this past spring (April-June.) The very first tball activity we went to was a "tryout" where they watch all the participants throw, hit and catch and then make the teams.  She was in line to hit and getting close to the front of the line. The first 3-4 kids in line are handed bats since they're almost up and of course the little kid in front of her decided to swing the bat in line and knocked her right in the face/head.  It was one of those slow motion moments where you can see what is about to happen to your baby but can't get there in time.

    This post was written by Genpink author: elysa One of the things I love most about traveling is experiencing new restaurants. Although my husband and I are both quite food afficienados we tend to fall into a routine at home, visiting our usual spots over and over. Whether I’m a car ride away or across several state lines, I make it a point to try at least one restaurant that’s not available in my area. Ideally, when I’m traveling I try to skip all chains (well, except Starbucks). But finding places to try can be a shot in the dark if you don’t do a bit of research.

It’s simple — concentrate on introducing yourself in a manner that serves the other persons interest and not your own.

    by Paul Byrne, Managing Director of Thesaurus Software Hiring a nanny can seem like a simple process – choose the right nanny to suit your needs and pay them. However, it is much more complex than this. If you employ a nanny in the UK and you pay them more than £149 per week, you have to comply with certain payroll and tax responsibilities. When you hire a nanny, you become an employer. This means that you are required by UK law to carry out a number of responsibilities. Register as an Employee. Your first responsibility is to register as an employer. This lets HMRC know that you are…

    Dear Annika,On Saturday, you turned nine months old. Three quarters of a year! (Plus three days. Sorry about that.)If last month was the month of gradual skill-building, this month was the month of the breakthroughs. The biggest is that shortly after you turned eight months, you started to crawl. You were cautious at first, and often switched between two knees and one knee and one foot, but by now, a few weeks later, you have it down, and go zooming by on hands and knees, invariably on your way to grab something you shouldn't be touching. Baby-proofing is a lot tougher this time around,…

    Dear Annika,Today you are eight months old. We are in prime Peak of the Baby season, and it is glorious. This month it feels like rather than any major breakthroughs, you've been working on building upon the skills you already have. You sit endlessly by now, and are happiest like that, playing. You've spent a lot of time this past month working on getting up on all fours--you can get up on your knees, though you don't usually hold the position for long, and you also do a lot of planking and downward dog. It seems like progress toward crawling, though I think that may still be a ways away.

By now you are a master sitter and can sit unsupported indefinitely (though we still put a pillow behind you to accommodate the occasional crash). As a result, you spend most of your play time sitting or playing on your belly (you will often get yourself from sitting to prone-on-the-belly on purpose by leaning forward as far as you can and then kind of toppling off your…

  • Relationship Advice…For Your Small Business

    Natalie MacNeil
    28 Aug 2014 | 10:51 am
    This blog post is being brought to you by Visa Small Business. Relationships are the most important part of building a business. I would argue that relationships are even more important than revenue because strong relationships and strong performance go hand in hand. Now before I start preaching on relationships in business, I will insert a disclaimer: I’m not perfect! I’ve had my share of relationships that have gone sour, and to say I’ve learned a lot along the way would be a huge understatement. Contrary to what many people believe (even the many acquaintances I know), I can…

    This post, Hallway Closet Cleanup, originated at [Super Duper Fantastic]. This is one of two hallway closets in the house, and it was the one I tackled in Project: Hallway Closet Cleanup (super creative, I know). In this closet, we keep first aid supplies, extra toiletries and other bulk household items. This also happens to include an overflowing supply of bandaids in all sizes, feminine hygiene products, many tubes of toothpaste, Ryan’s deodorant subscription that he forgot to turn off, and two Costco packs of razors because I couldn’t find the first pack I bought and so another…

    This post, Walmart To Go : Spoil Fresca Edition, originated at [Super Duper Fantastic]. Ordering online and having items delivered to your doorstep quickly is all the craze these days. When I was approached to try the Walmart To Go service, I decided to give it a whirl. We don’t get very many things delivered directly to our door because we’ve had a few instances of farm box thievery in the neighborhood. However, Walmart To Go has a solution for that problem – by having you choose a delivery time that works for you, you will always be home to accept your delivery. I placed…

Our last Friday with her. With the sadness, we distracted ourselves with a weekend of activities. We went on a sunset cruise in the bay, and we stuffed ourselves at Cochon 555‘s Heritage Fire event. It was a good weekend, and we really needed it after the month that we had been through. We didn’t really expect to move quickly in terms of getting another dog, but then we met the pup whom we’d immediately…

    This post, Ride the Ducks San Francisco [giveaway], originated at [Super Duper Fantastic]. In 2009, I hopped aboard the Ride the Ducks tour in San Francisco for the first time. It was a rare opportunity with Yelp, and we took over the city in two ducks. With quackers (I think that’s what they’re called) in our mouths, we quacked at each other and at people around the city. Duck Rogers was our guide, and he gave us little tidbits about our fair city. Five years later, Ride the Ducks San Francisco is still a part of the San Francisco tourist experience.

About a week after we said our goodbyes to Sasha, our doggie daycare posted about a pup that they were fostering. She’s a bit on the young side (guessing 8 or 9 months) and did not come house-trained. So far, it has been quite a different experience compared to when we first brought Sasha home. We definitely took for granted the “being house-trained” part. In the first few days, I cleaned up a…

    I like TV. I like to watch TV, record it, check out new shows, etc. But there are a few shows I’ve finally had time to check out a few shows I never watching initially, and, yeah I didn’t like some of them. The West Wing I love The Newsroom and have seen other Sorkin dramas so I get his “style” but I don’t get it. I’ve watched 6 episodes and it is not clicking for me. Snore. How I Met Your Mother Yes, I know how it ends. And I’ve heard some of the great lines coming out of the show (hello, “woo girls.”) But any time I’ve sat down to…

We would have dances at competitions (since they took ALL DAY) and I always remember hearing this song there. Anyhow, signs. Yeah, I believe in them. Sure some stuff may be coincidental but sometimes, I think there is something that happens that really points out to you what you need to be doing. Here is my recent story about signs. Six weeks ago, walking out of my MRI, my iPhone randomly started playing music. It selected “Hold On” from Neko…

I’m not saying they’re all always homeless, but, I mean, that could be one trend among the people who find me. Years ago, I was walking in my neighborhood and after accidentally bumping in to a woman and saying “watch where you’re going” (it was a GIANT side walk), she literally almost kicked my ass in front of my guy friend.

But right now, I sure as fuck am suffering from my neighbors sleep training theirs. You guys. This.is.torture. My apartment building is quite a collection of characters.

By now, I’m used to people staring as I walk around, pointing it out to their friends or staring at it as they walk by and the going in to a hushed conversation after they pass me. And the good news is that most people aren’t assholes about it. They offer me the handicapped seats and hold doors open.

    Oh, mornings. You're finally wearing me down. In a good way, though. Our love/hate relationship is starting to become more love than hate, which is rather unexpected—and fantastic.I'm trying so hard to embrace rising before the sun, given that I have a child who has always been an early riser. If I want some time to center myself before a full day, I have no choice but to drag myself out of bed when Jay's alarm goes off just before 6AM. I've always wished so hard that I could be an early bird, someone who thrives in the earliest part of each day, who doesn't want to lash out irrationally…

At least compared to how they were in my early twenties (lose 15 pounds, buy something fancy, be a little bit famous, etc.). Inspired by my purchase of this bundle, I thought I'd write down and share five of my own, personal, healthy living goals for the next year, and which resources from this bundle I will be using to help accomplish these goals.

Anyhow, as far as I can tell, the week ahead should slowly take us out of this late-summer heatwave, and for that I am grateful.

It's been so hot during the day that we haven't done many park adventures at all for the past couple weeks. I need to be more intentional with fun outings like these, because so often our time away from home is filled with have-tos (like groceries, laundry and the like) and not want-tos (like park mornings, exploring our city and other things of that nature).2.

Regardless, my home currently smells like sweet pumpkin heaven, and I have every intention of keeping it that way until December. At which point I will bust out the pine-scented candles, obviously.Anyhow, the point of this post is that there is a great deal at Target right now for the Glade candles with autumnal (I've always wanted to use that word)…

It’s supposed to be more “doable.” But somehow I cannot manage to do it. And it’s not even like I was doing something fun instead, like lying on the couch watching Netflix.  The entirety of my accomplishments: I did two loads of laundry (mostly put them away) and made dinner. (Oh! And I made biscotti. Because apparently I have priorities and they are: baked goods.) And in…

It has absolutely been the best four years of my life, raising this sweet little boy alongside Mike. The difficulties aren’t too difficult yet (I literally couldn’t sleep last night because I was worrying about him in high school. Hi, I’m crazy.

It’s a good practice, though there was one day Mike thought something was terribly wrong because I wasn’t responding to emails, phone calls, or text messages. He even asked my sister to come check on me. Oops. Take risks. Yep. Taking two kids to the grocery store has become old hat by now. (And leaving places due to screaming baby is also, sadly.) Don’t try to do it all myself. Not so good. I’m realizing more and more that I measure my day and my worth by how…

It was a nice New Year’s Eve, actually, and a tradition we might continue – we discussed the questions in the Art of Simple’s New Year’s Goals – first with Gabe, then with each other – before playing board games (we’re real wild over here). By the end of all the discussion and writing, I’d distilled my goals down to four intentions for the year.

    When you are shopping to buy a towel or towels, it is important to know what purpose you will be putting, the towel you buy, to efficiently achieve. Towels can be used for a variety of reasons and when I say that, I don’t mean the variety which is distinguished by the name of the towel, a beach towel for use on the beach or a bath towel for use after a bath. I mean that even within those types of towel, towels can be put to different uses, no more so though, than the versatile face cloth. The face cloth can be used as a wash cloth in the shower, a make-up remover in the bedroom, a sweat…

    Many people would love to have a soft towel when they just got out of the shower or tub. The softness of the towel is what typically attracts you to buy a certain kind of towel but the softness of the towel you get from your local or online stores may start to fade away as you use and wash your towels. To make sure that the towels you buy from http://www.thetowelshop.co.uk/hand-towel/ are kept soft as they were when you first got them is a challenge but here are a few ways to do them.

    Despite bathrooms having a bad reputation in almost all Feng Shui practices, because of the numerous drains that let valuable chi energy flow out with the water, this is less applicable to modern bathrooms with elegant room-like designs. In fact, in contemporary Feng Shui, the bathroom has a special place in your home’s energy circulation and should not be simply closed off and forgotten, but arranged to enhance chi flow throughout the house. Here are 7 simple things you can do to transform your bathroom into an energy-rich, positive and relaxing room. 1. De-clutter and freshen up Before…

I could sit here and say that everything about 2014 so far is sunshine and rainbows, but then I’d be lying.

    4 Sep 2014 | 8:05 pm
    So I finally got PiYo in the mail yesterday. Finally. God the USPS is so SLOW sometimes (kidding. I just have the patience of a newborn). It actually got here relatively quickly Did my first workout last night – sweaty…holy sweaty! I really enjoyed the fast pace of it, though it was hard to follow at times, I’m excited to continue so stay tuned for some before/after images and a follow on my journey. I know my blogging has been a bit lackluster as of late but I’m trying to get back on board. So this morning, Hubs kept E home from Daycare so we could break in his new…
  • Meal Plan Monday: Clean Eating Style

    Heidi
    25 Aug 2014 | 5:52 am
    So I’m getting ready to sign up as a Beachbody Coach – a friend of mine has been talking to me about it since we went to our RRCA coaching certification together. She recruited me this week to join her 5 day clean eating challenge. I’ve been a part of this other challenge group off an on but I think there are a few factors that contribute to me not…participating as actively as I should be. But because A is local, she can whoop my butt into gear if I slack. Which is exactly the kind of accountability I need. Anyhow, I got the meal plan for this five day refresh and…

  • Reminiscing about painful awesomeness

    18 Sep 2014 | 9:41 am
    I promise a new post soon, but today I'm reminiscing about doing Tough Mudder a couple years ago. You can read the original post here as well as read the subsequent posts about our adventure here, here and here (it was a really long day, you guys.) Sunday, September 9, 2012Tough Mudder: Why Do We Pay To Do These Things?I'm going to attempt to post about my experience in Tough Mudder yesterday, but it'll probably take a couple posts because: A. A lot happened; and B. It's difficult to type given no comfortable position exists for my body any longer.I'm trying to rest…

    15 Sep 2014 | 12:54 pm
    I like my friends to have big hearts that are nearly totally shrouded in sarcasm and a bit of irreverence. Below is a snippet of today's text discussion with a friend I've had for over a decade. I think we make good adults, don't you?Me: Some company in Oak Ridge just called for a reference FYI. Are you gunna work with nukes? Cuz that'd be cool.Her: I've applied to so many jobs I genuinely have not ideaMe: I'm going with nukes then.

    I'm planning to head to Baltimore tomorrow to watch my Navy Blue Angels perform for the first time. The air show is part of a giant event commemorating the birthday of the Star-spangled banner. And it looks like it might be a logistical nightmare.Which makes me think of the last time I was in Baltimore in a logistical nightmare: The Baltimore Grand Prix.So I'm re-posting my account of that again below.

  • My 9/11 Story

    3 Sep 2014 | 1:06 pm
    This time each year, I'm reminded of when I first moved to this city. I've been in D.C. 13 years now and I'm still so in love with it - which is surprising, given how my time here began: with 9/11.I've posted this before, but here is my personal story of being at the White House when that happened. I in no way want to belittle the tragedy, loss, symbolism and heroism of that day and I'm so grateful that everyone I know was kept safe. But below is what happened to me, humorous parts and all.During my Semester In D.C. (told briefly about here), our school work consisted of half…
  • Giving is Selfish (And I recommend it)

    22 Aug 2014 | 11:51 am
    In the wake of the ALS challenge, there has been much discussion on the effectiveness of such a campaign. Some call it Slacktivism, others are just annoyed that the videos are filling their Facebook Newsfeeds, displacing important cat memes (*raises hand sheepishly*), others even argue that it's just self-promotion.And honestly, I myself have had reservations about the challenge. First -- the whole water thing was originally meant as a punishment for not giving but somehow it turned into what everyone did in addition to giving (which kind of makes giving miserable, which kind of seems…

    27 Aug 2014 | 7:37 pm
    ムダ毛の気になる場所…許せない部分だらけです。 脚や腕や脇、Vゾーンも…お金があれば全身永久脱毛をしたいくらいですが、貧乏なのでそれも出来ず。 いつも自己処理なので、チクチク(処理後の素足の状態)な脚だと、普段のファッションにも影響が出ます。 勿論生足も二の足を踏みますし、夏の暑い時でもハイソックスや脚を隠す不自然なファッションしか出来ません。…

    時々ジムのプールで泳ぐことがあるので、脇の脱毛をしたくて、エステに通いました。 高校の先輩が、エステで脱毛をしてから、全く心配がなくなったというお話を伺ったので、受けることに致しました。 一年コースに通ったのですが、完全に脱毛はできませんでした。そこで、今は別のエステに通っています。 全く勧誘がなく、追加料金もかかりませんし、キャンセル料金もかかりません。…

    さらに、勧誘も一切ないですし、追加料金もかからないということが、安心できる材料だということです。駅からも近いですし、夜遅くまで営業していることからも、通いやすいエステだといえます。

    Everyone has a “bucket list,” the things they want to do before they kick the bucket to really enjoy life, explore and LIVE before it’s too late.  I constantly think about “the bucket,” knowing that our time is limited and it’s up to each of us, individually to take charge of the biggest, craziest dreams and claim them for ourselves, knowing that no one will do it for us! I have a few big things on my bucket list- one of which, I’m really, really excited about this coming year- in 2015 I will be getting married and the icing on the (wedding) cake is…
  • 3 Pieces Styled 3 Ways- Our Office & Guest Room w/ Sauder Furniture

    Our little condo is cozy- most of our space serves multiple purposes.  My office doubles as our guest room and it has been a work in progress since I moved in over a year ago. To me, the best spaces are functional spaces, that can accommodate other purposes. When working with Sauder Furniture, I was excited to put the final touches on the room with furniture pieces that could fit our budget ($250) and easily be moved or reworked from office, to a space for guests. I originally picked an inspiration room & three pieces of furniture and got to work! I chose an upholstered storage ottoman…

I vividly remember talking to a fella about job options after graduate school…at the time, I was dead broke, having weekly debates between food or clothes for the coming winter with myself in Target.

  • The State of Advertising (for Publishers)

    I have spent the past month researching the best ways for publishers to monetize their platforms with advertising. I had two different clients hire me to review their current display ad network, and identify the best way for them to increase this revenue. So I talked to every ad network in the market, and googled insane things like “programmatic advertising.” Two years ago I was charged with building an online ad network for a major publisher, and the ad network industry today looks nothing like it did then.  Here is what I learned: 1. Brands are spending less on display…

Rachel is one of the only lawyers I know that bills their clients at a flat monthly rate vs charging an insane hourly rate and charging down to the minute.  It can seem counter intuitive to sell your services at a flat fee, so I asked Rachel why she chose to do her business this way.  It now makes complete sense to me. Here is what she has to say: 1. It makes the client relationships better When clients know you are billing them for every minute they spend…

I remember walking into my first performance review absolutely positive I deserved a raise, and absolutely no idea what to expect in the review. Should I ask for a raise before the meeting? Do I negotiate in the meeting? What if they don’t give me a raise? Does everyone get a raise at their performance review?  These were things I never learned in…
