While I am not a doctor, I have an intense interest in health and keep up to date with the latest health news. Today I wanted to discuss Forward Head Posture because it greatly affects quality of life, a value I think is important.
As someone who works by a computer often, I have familiarity with the topic of forward head posture, which refers to incorrect postural alignment of your head being in front of, instead of above, your spine as it should be. Hours of sitting at a computer, text messaging, driving, and other daily activities exert a lot of pressure on your neck and spine, and the result is often having Forward Head Posture. Most people I come across indeed exhibit some degree of the condition.
One of my most treasured hobbies is helping people find jobs. This includes helping improving their resume, as well as mentoring on how to search for open positions offline and online, interview well, and so on. I don’t think there is anything that feels quite as rewarding as that — well, maybe just short of cheesecake.
I have noticed that one major change since 2008′s recession is that older workers who had been working at the same place for 10 maybe even 20 years before getting laid off, are finding it very hard to land a new one (even more so than other age groups).
Jackie Huba, over at Church of the Customer, has started an interesting conversation about establishments kicking out customers. A movie theater chain, Alamo Drafthouse, posted a public service announcement that was actually a voicemail left by a customer who had been kicked out for texting during a movie.
The video contains a bit too much profanity for me to feel comfortable posting it here, but the video is shown publicly before previews in the theater chain.
The PSA was then picked up by CNN and held up as a shining example of this company being a “hero”, which undoubtedly created a lot of PR for the theater.
This is Part Three of my three part series on Affiliate / Commission Jobs – how they work, and are they worth it.
Not all industries are the same. Some have built-in advantages for companies looking to sell through affiliate / commission means. We last looked at how to find a good commission job, and now we can explore which factors impact the industries best suited towards this pay structure.
Certain industries tend to have strong advantages to going the commission / affiliate marketing route — but that doesn’t always work out best for the affiliate. Here’s a look:

We’ve all seen job ads at some point that advertise the “potential” to make thousands a week, only to find the words “salary: commission only” somewhere further down.
We all wonder, can we actually make that money? It often seems like a scam or a company looking for “free labor”. Often it is, but there are ways to separate the good situations from the bad.
A lot of buzz has emerged about Groupon, a website that allows retailers to offer a “group” coupon to many customers at once. A certain number of customers must sign on to the deal before it is active. Once the deal is over, Groupon sends the business owner a check, and the business owner provides the goods and services to the customers that signed up for the deal.
This sounds great, right?
Vitamin D is one of the most misunderstood vitamins, yet one of the most important. Vitamin D helps your body absorb Calcium, regulates minerals in your bloodstream, and has been shown to improve immune system function. Lack of Vitamin D has been linked to Rickets (soft bones).
Some doctors want you to take a supplement to get enough Vitamin D. Others recommend eating Catfish or Sardines, which naturally have some Vitamin D. But the reality is that Vitamin D is only readily available in enough quantity through the Sun.
We’ve all seen the 20% off coupon oversize postcard Bed Bath & Beyond sends each week, right? Well, what you may not know is, other retailers aren’t sending customers the same offers all the time. Welcome to the world of favoritism by retailers.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about growing your business using LinkedIN, and shared those tips with Brynne Tillman, a sales and business development coach, who had some tips of her own for finding and closing sales prospects on LinkedIN. I’d like to share those tips with you today.
If I am attending an event or business card exchange I will often share the event with a prospect. It’s a great reason to reach out with a soft approach and another way to get in front of them.
