3 Easy Ways to Business Success

Financial Peace UK

When you’re starting in business, or thinking about it, you might get stuck wondering where you are going to find customers. Making sure you grow your business and reaching the community is important, especially when you are new!

What holds most people back is they fear having to buy advertisements or that they have to beg their friends to buy or support their product. You probably even know a few people like this, shamelessly pushing their business on Facebook right now.

It doesn’t have to be like that! In fact building and creating a loyal customer base is simple. And it all starts with your relationships – not your product and not your advertising.

For years my business operated off personal referrals and testimonials. In fact, for the most part we still do!

Chinese Man Claims Google Maps Helped Him Find Home 20 Years After Abduction

CBS San Francisco

MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS SF) – Chinese media reports claim that a 28-year-old man has found his way home some 23 years after his abduction, thanks in part to a search of Google Maps.

According to The Next Web, Luo Gang claims he was abducted on his way to kindergarten at age 5 and taken to a new home hundreds of miles away. There he grew up in a fairly normal family and went on to graduate school, always remembering his original home.

According to Luo’s account, he tried to keep memories of his home fresh in his head, and eventually could only recall a set of bridges.

Top 12 Barter Goods for WTSHTF

Barter items for the post-cataclysmic world. Here we go:

  1. Ammo, Ammo, Ammo – Do I need to say it again? America is the most heavily armed nation in the world, but I seriously question how many people actually maintain an adequate supply of ammunition for those guns. Think about it, how many people do you know that go out and buy a few boxes of shells before hunting season starts? Exactly. They don’t have an adequate supply should SHTF. You can have all the guns in the world, but if you can’t load ‘em with bullets – they’re useless. When the Golden Horde of unprepared masses descend upon those holding something of value, it’s only those who can repeatedly pop these zombies in the dome that will find themselves forcing the Golden Horde to consider another house.

The Monday-est of Mondays

Do you feel like this on Monday’s?

Small Dog Syndrome

“Monday is a lame way to spend 1/7 of your life.”
– Author Unknown

Weekend was a blur of family photos, a bit of local activism, and many dinners. For the first time in memory, Sunday dinner at my godparents spread out over three tables (plus one for the kids)! All wonderful but not exactly relaxing. Hence when I stumbled through the office doors this morning at that hated time 6:30am, I didn’t even try to force wakefullness; I just set another alarm and fell haphazardly onto the loan sofa in the department. I awoke an hour later covered in some sort of sofa-fuzz that needed a lint roller to resolve, but refreshed and ready to start the day.

Until our housing management company called and said our previous managers did not properly transfer our deposit so they have no record of our prepayment of this month’s rent. Currently, we’re…
