    Prioritization | Road to Revenue #124

    Prioritization | Road to Revenue #124

    A priority is the concern, interest or desire that comes before all others. Our priorities are the areas of our lives that are meaningful and important to us. They're usually activities, practices, or relationships that we want to put genuine effort and time into.
    The system that I use in order to organize my priorities by day, week, month, and year is what I call my 5 Daily Practices.
    1. Know your WHAT
    2. Know your WHO
    3. Know your HOW
    4.Know Your NOW
    5. Apply your WHY!

    How to Build a Community

    How to Build a Community

    The first step of branding a person, product, or service is to find its frequency. What does that mean, “to find your brand’s frequency”? Whether it’s building a brand that is a person, place, thing, product, or service, it’s essential to find out what the “woo-woo” person in me describes as a “vibration”— in other words, an emotional appeal meant to reverberate with your target audience or market.

    What You Need to Know Before Making an Investment

    What You Need to Know Before Making an Investment

    The last recession impacted stocks for several years, so it is natural to expect this bear market to react similarly. One good rule of thumb to help you create a financial plan is to assume that your stocks and funds could drop 50 percent overnight and stay down for a very long time. This will help you to better determine your timing and risk tolerance, in terms of investing in stocks.

    Understanding your timing and risk tolerance when investing is essential but that does not mean that you can win by avoiding taking any risks. As previously mentioned, I tend to lean towards a more conservative approach with stocks and bond investments, and make sure that is aligned with the ever-increasing costs of living. Remember that when the stock market recovers, it tends to recover quickly, which can lead to decent returns if you are patient.
