Why We Include This Particular Graphic in EVERY eBook

Every eBook we create for free download or as a product you can buy includes this particular graphic that we created. Do you know why?

It’s called the Power of Positivity. In our world of increasingly negative thought processes and actions, I felt it was necessary to kick that to the curb with positive reinforcement.

Everywhere you go, there are people who have gotten sucked into the negative vortex. Angry drivers on the road, dissatisfied in the workplace and feeling there is no outlet, shooting up innocent people in mall’s across America.

At some point in time, this negativity really begins to affect one’s life and one’s business in the worst possible ways. Time for it to stop. Time for us to look beyond all of this and move forward.

Let’s go through our Positive Reinforcement Points one at a time.

You May Not Realize It. – You probably don’t because you are so bogged down in day to day strife and feelings of hopelessness.

You Hold Many Positive Possibilities In Your Hands – You can go through life with a glass half full mindset or a glass half empty mindset. it’s ALL about the mindset.

Manifest What You Want With Positive Thoughts – Yes this is something you can do. It’s not about wishing for a million dollars. It’s about keeping your thoughts positive at all times, and when your fears and worries get the better of you, putting them into the hands of your angels or higher beings that are always around to help you. That’s not hype. It actually works and gives you inner peace knowing that the more positive your thoughts are, the less negativity will be influencing your life.

Let Go of The Drama – Yup. Unless you are hell bent on being the Drama Queen or King, just dump the drama. Your higher spiritual calling does not include drama, so by dumping it you will shape your life positively in ways you could never imagine.

Don’t Take On Other People’s Projections of Their Fears and Anxieties – All too often, like everyday it seems, we are surrounded by other people who have fears and anxieties that are overwhelming them and stopping them from leading happier positive lives. We are surrounded with this 24/7!!! And because we are sympathetic, empathetic, or simply caring individuals, we often get sucked up into that negative vortex. And those fears and anxieties become US. Learn to put other peoples issues in perspective, put them OVER THERE, do what you need to do, but don’t let them become YOU.

Stay Away From the Hype – Instead of following the crowd, following the trends, try following what you know down in your core to be the truth and the true you and your true direction and passion in life. This is called your soul’s purpose. Even if you don’t believe you have a soul, which is fine, you have a purpose in life. Discover that, be true to yourself and do what’s right for YOU.

Surround Yourself with Positive People and Energies – the more you do this, the more positive your life will become because you are kicking negative, toxic people and their energies to the curb. I have personally done this by establishing a positive ring of fire around me. Inside the ring of fire is all that is positive and good. Outside the ring of fire is all the negative crap that cannot ever get past the ring of fire. You’d be surprised how this helps you maintain your positive energy environment.

Trust in the Universe and the Process – you know how sometimes the Universe feels stuck? Nothing is happening, everything seems to be on hold, nothing is moving. We could blame it on Mercury going into retrograde which certainly doesn’t help!! But this is a proven Universal thing. Sometimes the energy is simply stuck and not going anywhere. And then out of the blue things start moving, progressing, getting better. Without going into religious beliefs or consulting our astrologer, things happen for a reason, and they happen in their own good time, when the time is right. Trust in the process. Believe. Be Positive.

Your Business and Your Life Will Be the Success You Want It To Be!

Announcing Release of our Newest Free eBook Four Key SEO Points

We are very pleased to announce the launch of our newest free eBook, entitled Four Key SEO Points – What Every Business Owner Needs to Know!

While the book actually contains many more than 4 points, we have broken SEO down into four key areas. Makes the reading and absorption of the material easier.

All too often business owners think that SEO is some kind of a mysterious, cryptic science. They get taken advantage of by unscrupulous companies or individuals that charge a great deal of money and do nothing, or, reversely, offer free SEO services that do nothing but spam the business owners website out onto low quality directories or sites, thus costing you precious search engine visibility with Google.

Four Key SEO Points Free eBook

It is for these reasons that we wrote this particular eBook on SEO. Having been in the business for over 18 years, seeing trends come and go, seeing algorithms constantly changing, we have a good feel for what works and what doesn’t. Extensive experience with SEO and our passion for our clients to be found is what drives us.

We explain exactly what “SEO” really is in understandable terms, we explain organic SEO as well as SEM, PPC (pay per click), plus HTTPS vs HTTP and it’s effect on successful SEO. And then there is the takeaway page prepared just for you.

It is up to the business owner whether they want to try to tackle SEO themselves, and hopefully not set their website back with impractical mistakes, or whether they want to source out a professional to lead them down the road to success. The takeaway page as well as the rest of the eBook explains all in an easy to understand manner.

Google My Business Listing Suspension Resolved Back in Business

On June 22, 2019 we wrote about how our Google My Business listing had been suspended by Google about a week prior to that. We are happy to report that our suspension issue has been resolved with a positive outcome in the space of just one month.

Google My Business Listing Suspension Resolved Back in Business

 

How was this accomplished? There are many horror stories out there about how it can take months to get this resolved and sometimes it just doesn’t get resolved. We were determined that we were not going to just let it go and become a statistic.

Our first few conversations with the team that takes care of this issue really did raise a spike in the blood pressure as the rhetoric from the team members was strictly based upon “you broke the rules, you are wrong, you have to comply with the rules” when we didn’t know what rules of Google’s we had broken. It took quite a lot of chain yanking to get them to reveal what actual rules we had supposedly broken

Finally we found out you cannot have two listings at the same address for two businesses. Especially if the address was not a commercial address but an at home address. With so many people working from home these days, who knew?

Our insistence that we broke the supposed rules innocently were completely irrelevant to the team. They just kept spewing the same rhetoric.

When this happened, we kept to our story which was entirely true that we broke the rules innocently, we have complied with the suggested fixes, and when we made further changes as suggested by the team, we kept getting suspended every time we initiated a team suggested change.

This escalated the entire issue to a higher chain of command in the team.

Finally we got a phone call from a knowledgeable gentleman who told me to go look at the listing. It was alive, well, and published. He told me to go in and edit the listing as I saw fit. I told him quite honestly I was afraid to even touch it because previously when I had made suggested changes the listing kept getting suspended. He insisted, so I went in and made changes to better fit the listing. The listing stayed live and valid.

This Google team member was probably one of the nicest individuals I had spoken with throughout this entire fiasco, and the most knowledgeable. He advised me that listings can get suspended either by the suggestions and input of others as well as by their automated system, and informed me of a few things never to change now that the listing was repaired and blessed by Google.

Besides the fact that you can only have one Google My Business Listing per address, he advised me to:

A) Never change the business name

B) Never change the actual address

C) Never change the main category for the listing (although you can add up to 10 additional sub categories to any listing as long as they are relevant to the business)

While this sounds easy enough, getting through the process to this point was an actual nightmare but it was a learning experience with a positive outcome so you cannot ask for more than that.

Are you having any issues with your Google My Business Listing? Has it been suspended? If so, give us a call or text at 201.753.1677. We will work with Google on your behalf to get the issue straightened out.

Why a High Quality Resume is So Important

Why is a high quality resume so very important to your career? We’ll give you some tips right here on why you should have the best resume writing service you can afford in your back pocket.

A resume is needed in order to get an interview. It’s part of the application process. And, if you are chosen, that actual resume may be used in the interview itself. You want to have the best possible chance at the starting gate.

A high quality resume is absolutely essential to help the hiring manager decide if you are a good match for the position. A resume is either eyeballed by the hiring manager or scanned for specific keywords as applicable to the position.

If eyeballed, the hiring manager can tell in 15 seconds if you are a prospective match. That’s it. You have 15 seconds. If scanned, the keywords used in your resume will need to be a good match to the pre-chosen keywords in the scan.

If not, it’s just a big NO. On the other hand, if a match is found, it’s a nice happy YES.

Your resume tells the prospective employer about you, your work history, your skill set, and what you bring to the table in terms of being a good fit for the position. This is mission critical.

Bottom line your first impression is your most important one. And that first impression is your resume.
