How to Find Your Path With Nathalie Plamondon-Thomas

So, which way? This way? That way? The other way? Which way are we supposed to go?

Do you find that nowadays, we get so much conflicting advice as far as what we should do, that it gets even harder to figure it out? Because it’s unknown.

We get people coming to us to tell us: “Well, with all my experience, you should never do this, or you should always do that.” And everyone is saying the opposite of each other.

It’s confusing, because then we wonder: “What am I supposed to do?”


Fusing Femininity and Masculinity to Thrive in Business and Life | Rasa DiSalvo

As a young girl growing up in Lithuania, Rasa DiSalvo knew by the age of nine that she wanted to live near the beach in the United States.

Today, as she glances out from her Manhattan Beach, California home office, well, no need to guess what she sees.

Getting from there – wherever “there” is – to here is rarely a straight line.

DiSalvo discovered that by connecting what she calls feminine and masculine energies, a person can unlock limiting beliefs and build strategies for a thriving career and life.


7 Photography Tips for Instagram With Debbie Flynn

7 Tips to Bring in the Wow Factor!

Photos have a huge impact on us because we’re highly visual creatures.

When you consider that over 90% of the information, we take in is visual, photography takes on a whole new perspective.

Think of how powerful your photos could be on Instagram, a popular social media platform that focuses on photography.

There’s even more to the power of photos because photos bring back different memories, experiences and emotions in just 150 milliseconds.

Emotions are important and move you to take an action such as double tapping on Instagram, joining your email list and commenting.

If the viewer feels nothing, they’re more likely to move on. When they feel emotion, they will spend their precious time with you.

The Shifting Winds of LinkedIn Engagement with JD Gershbein

Hailed as the social networking site for business professionals since its inception, LinkedIn continues to thrive in a highly volatile social media climate.

As of this writing, the site, nearing a generation into its existence, is awash with activity—a far cry from what it looked like back in the day.

As LinkedIn has changed, so have the ways we engage on it.

We no longer communicate purely for new business or new employment.

LinkedIn now holds a mirror to the human condition.

The Internet: It’s About Building Community, Not Audience! with Diana Morgan

We are in the world of Web 3.0 now.

Just to review, Web 1.0 which began in the 1990’s was about sharing information.

Web 2.0 was about reading and writing, an exchange of ideas, and then became even more about interacting when social media started.

Now we are in Web 3.0 which is even more about interacting, building relationships.

In many ways it may still look like we’re in 2.0 because much of Web 3.0 development is happening on the “back end”, the web we don’t see.

It’s about search results.

Soon you will see the changes on the front end.
