Some Factors Determining the Lifespan of Your Dog

Posted on December 31st, by admin in Life Hack. No Comments

Some Factors Determining the Lifespan of Your Dog
It’s true when they say “a dog is a man’s best friend,” however, this can also be said when referring to the connection between dogs and women, too. Everyone loves dogs, and we all know someone who either has or had one in the past. Owning a dog comes with major responsibilities that I’ve witnessed firsthand just being around them at my friend’s house. Additionally, losing a dog can be a huge emotional downer and can take a toll on your mental state for several months afterward. I asked my friend how much he spends on his dog a month, and he mentioned it varies depending on its food, medical bills, toys, etc; it’s hard to put a number on the total amount, but the cost can go up quickly.
Recently, another friend of … Read More »

Be the Top Pro in the Room with 2 YouTube Hacks
In this article I’m going to talk you through how to become the top professional in the room, no matter what your industry, but first… a statistic you might find surprising.
Did you know that the average timespan of a job in the U.S. is only 4.2 years? That means that every four years, you either fall, tread water or climb. If you’re the top pro in the room and the room happens to be a group interview for your dream job, you know which direction you’ll be heading.
The truth is, it’s not as hard as you might think to become that top pro. Once you know what to learn and where to learn it, you’re already doing better than 90% of the people in your imaginary room. If you then … Read More »


7 Reasons You Should Start Using Resistance Bands In Every Workout

7 Reasons You Should Start Using Resistance Bands In Every Workout
Over the years, more people have been starting to workout because the emphasis on health has become increasingly important. Nowadays, you have more products, supplements, and cardio workouts in the markets than ever before. Some of the most popular are include high-intensity interval training, and the 21-day fix, which is focused on nutrition. If you visit a sports store, you’ll notice an increased selection in equipment like weights, bags, benches, and resistance bands. They are more affordable now (as compared to several years back) because the cost of manufacturing has gone down considerably.
In the last seven years, I’ve tried almost every type of work program possible, and I recently started to incorporate resistance training instead of weights. This has reduced injuries, which are associated with heavy weight training, and has improved muscle tone.

We all have long to-do lists and, if possible, we want to get more things done in a shorter amount of time.
Admittedly, I’ve tried a lot of productivity tips and they always work for a while but then they get sort of boring and I stop doing them.

Should Your B2B Sales Team Use Video for Sales Calls?
With the advent of digital communications, face-to-face meetings have become increasingly scarce. Thankfully, video conferencing is an alternative way to make an impression without actually meeting in-person. There’s no doubt that in-person pitches are more effective, but sometimes it’s either not possible or feasible. However, closing sales over video comes with its challenges which is why there hasn’t yet been widespread adoption of this.
For those who know how to capitalize on the opportunities that video conferencing provides, they have a distinct advantage over their competition.
Forming a personal connection
A salesperson doesn’t have to be told that body language is important, but without the right cues they may have a tendency to recite when it comes to a phone call rather than react. Video conferences give the salesperson a chance to see how … Read More »

How To Create New Year’s Resolutions You’ll Keep
Year after year, millions of Americans set New Year’s Resolutions, but most of them do not stick. By setting ourselves up for failure, we create traditional goal-oriented resolutions that don’t help us get clear on who we want to be or shine light on how we want to show up for others in our life, our career, and for ourselves. By focusing on the person we want to be at the end of 2017 and achievable weekly steps, we can finally design New Year’s Resolutions with ease and embody them on a daily basis.
I found this out three years ago when I first started setting New Year’s Resolutions. I designed goals for multiple areas of my life including my career, my relationships, and my self-care. Despite my efforts, I quickly learned that goal-oriented … Read More »
