Are Facebook’s Privacy Settings A Joke?

Let me start by saying that if you are going to stay safe online, never enter or post any data in social media that you would not want discussed on national news.

Recently Facebook changed their privacy settings making it harder to limit your posts to specific people.  That got a lot of people angry but the reality is that any company can change their rules at any time and your only recourse of action is to stop using it.  When you consider the size and scope of Facebook it is easy to see how most will simply shrug their shoulders and move on – social media is addictive and most are not going to stop posting regardless of the privacy rules.  

How to Set Up a Pinterest Business Page

If you own a small business, at a bare minimum, you need to set up your business page for the major social media site.  You can not create your business page on pinterest as  discussed in their blog.

You can either sign up or convert your existing account.  Business pages on pinterest are free, allow you to display a verification badge, and add buttons and widgets to your website. 

See things as you want them to be

How can you make your dream come true, if you don’t have one?

Visualize your goals and your subconscious will begin to work toward making your mental pictures come true.

You’ll gradually grow into any condition you desire, provided you adjust your mental attitude to mirror the person who corresponds to those conditions.

Is Facebook Killing Your Career?

The Internet Is Did you ever post something you regret?Forever

Anyone that spends time online, including using social media such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Squidoo, YouTube, the list is endless, needs to understand that everything they post online can and will come back to haunt them.

Can you think of anything you did in the past that you regret?  Imagine having that come up on a Google search complete with pictures and video.  I still run into forum posts I made from the mid 90s.  Thankfully, they are mainly posts about building a home theater.

This is so important to remember – the Internet is forever and you should care about what you say online.  I have a motto I follow whenever writing anything online: 

“If it feels good to write it then it is bad for business”

Before You Can Change The World You MUST Change Yourself

This is an inscription on the tomb of an Anglican Bishop in Westminster Abbey:

When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world.

As I grew older and wiser I discovered the world would not change –

So I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country,

but it too seemed immovable.

Very Bad Puns

Everyone needs a little humor in their lives and I am sure you will agree that much of what is here barely qualifies!  My friends and I have enjoyed sending each other pain through the effective use of very bad puns.   When life is starting to get too serious, stop by and read a few.

Every winner has scars

Life is made up of a series of experiences. Each one will make you stronger, even though it may be hard for you to realize it at the time.

Life is your classroom in which you’re being tested, tried, and passed.

Always try to stay in the midst of life and activity.

Don’t isolate yourself from the action.

A good system shortens the road to your goal

Your success will be determined on the drawing board.

All you need is a plan, a road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.

Somewhere there is a map of how it can be done, for at all times, it’s better to have a method.

Planning will bring your future into the present so you can do something about it now.

The courage to begin

The courage to begin separates dreamers from achievers.

Your difficulty and the difficulty of everyone who ever desires to achieve anything worthwhile comes in the movement.

You can achieve anything

The only thing that stands between you and what you want from life, is simply the will to pursue it and the faith to believe that it is possible.

You can have anything on earth that you want, once you mentally accept the fact that you can have it.

If you want success, begin thinking of yourself as a success.
