Today is National Blah, Blah, Blah Day. If you've never heard of it, don't worry I hadn't either. So what is blah blah blah day? It's a day to do all of the projects and things that people have been nagging you to do. That includes the things you've been nagging yourself to do.


Blah blah blah day is about procratination. All the things you've been putting off, usually because they're either scary or just not fun. 


The scary stuff is usually something new, that you've never done before. Maybe you're afraid you'll suck at it or even worse be a total failure. The good thing about fear is most of it is entirely in your head. Chances are you've imagined crazy possibilities that are really unlikely. The best way to deal with the scary stuff is to jump in with both feet. Worst case scenario you learn something from the experience. Best case, it turns out amazing!!


The boring stuff requires a different strategy. Whenever I have to do something I don't like, I do one or all of the following. Presents (essentially I bribe myself)!!! Who doesn't love presents? There's always something you want, new shoes, a massage, sporting equipment, doesn't matter what it is. My rule is the bigger the task the bigger the prize can be. My second strategy is my timer method. I set a timer for 10-20 minutes and have to work on that one thing until the timer goes off. Anyone can do something for 10  minutes. When the timer goes off you move onto the next thing. Finally, get some help. Things are always more fun when you have someone to do them with. Plus they get done faster. Why do you think paint parties were invented? 


Use these simple strategies and you won't have to hear blah, blah, blah anymore and you get to check some things off your list

We are all stressed out at some time, maybe you have a job interview or an upcoming test. You could be stressed because you have too much to do or your finances are strained. Some of us are stressed so much, that we don't even realize it anymore. How awful is that? Next time you're stressed, try one or all of these stress relievers.


Put on some music. Music is a great mood changer. It actually affects your brain and can lower blood pressure. We all have at least one song that makes us happy. It could remind you of a great time you had, or a person that makes your heart sing, or the words alone might lift your spirit. Music can take you to a whole new mindset and reenergize you.


Go for a walk. Sometimes it helps to just remove yourself from everything. Walks can be calming. Nature is a great mood balancer. It can calm you and give you a peacefulness. Removing yourself lets you regain perspective and come back in a better state. Work it out. Go to the gym, do some yoga, or even just some stretches. Exercise can get rid of that nervous or irritated energy. It releases those feel good endorphins and helps you chill out.


Organize your sh*t. There's always a calming effect when everything is clean and put away. Even organizing your finances or scheduling appointments you've been putting off can bring a huge sense of calm. Imagine not having to scour your desk looking for the bill you have to pay today. When you know where everything is, it gets rid of that frazzeled feeling.

Laugh!! Laughter releases endorphins, making you happier. Honestly, you can't be laughing and be all uptight at the same time. So watch a funny movie, call that hilarious friend, or spend some time with kids. 


Meditate your stress away. Using meditation or even hypnosis can alter your brain's state. It can relax you or help you come up with a solution. It's kind of like when your trying super hard to remember something, so it stays just out of reach. But once you relax and stop focusing on it, whatever you were trying to remember just pops into your head. Added bonus, you feel so reenergized after.


Get Social. Sometimes when we're stressed out, we feel like we're in it all by ourselves. That makes it isolating and even scarier. So by calling a friend, getting in a discussion group, or connecting with others on social media you realize you're not alone. You can see how others have handled similar situations, or sometimes it helps to just talk about what's going on.

Lastly, and my favorite pamper yourself. Scheduling a massage, a hair appointment, accupuntcture, or even just a shopping trip can all melt away stress. You can even go bigger and get away for the weekend. Nothing rejuvenates you like a vacation (or even a staycation). Sometimes we are so busy that we forget to take care of ourselves. These things not only pamper you, but they relax you and improve your whole outlook. Think about it, have you ever been stressed out after a massage?


Honestly, do whatever works for you. Throw everything at it. These are not your only options.

Anyone in a long term relationship has probably fought about money at one time or another. It sucks to fight, but it really sucks to fight about finances. By making this one change, you can reduce your money fights by quite a bit. 


When couples fight about money, it is usually sparked by what someone in the relationship spent money on. This is normally because we rarely see the same importance in things. You might see the value in an expensive pair of shoes that let you walk comfortably all day, but your partner may see the same expense as frivilous. Same goes for make-up, golf clubs, tools, kitchen gadgets, or spa days. Each of these items can be seen by one person as essential and the other as frivilous. Thus starting a fight.


But what if there was a way you could buy your wants without any reprocussions.....


There is!!  


Chances are that both people in the relationship have an income. So why shouldn't you each get to spend some of it however you want? I believe you have that right. You work hard for your money, Enjoy It! By each person opening a "ME account" you eliminate all that fighting. There's no more bitterness of feeling that you went without something you wanted, you sacrificed for the family, and that selfish a**hole bought a new toy. 


By each person having a "ME account" you know that all the bills get paid and purchases made from the joint account are discussed. But there's also the freedom of buying whatever it is YOU WANT without the guilt. That new pair of shoes has no affect on anything but your account. You can come home and say look at these amazing shoes and know they will be appreciated. You won't get the joy kill question of "how much did those cost?"


By the simple step of adding Me accounts, your relationship can become happier and closer.

More business is taking place online every year. Even traditional brick and mortar businesses are expanding to include online platforms. Let's face it, when you need something, the first thing you do is Google it. Why not let this trend start working for you?


Here's what a blog can do for your business....


A blog shares information. You can use it to share knowledge about your field or your products. A hairstylist can share inside information on the new and upcoming styles. They can share tips and tricks to make your hair look amazing. Dentists can use it share their recommended products for keeping your teeth white. They can let you know about new procedures that will have your teeth looking their best. A person who sells beauty supplies can review their products, show people how to apply the products, and give recommendations on the skin types each item is best for. A blog is all about giving that behind the scenes peek to customers.


A blog lets you STAND OUT from the others in your field. You stand out because you're providing valuable information and because a blog allows you to become known to your reader. You become their go-to for questions and product reviews. You build a trust with them that others in your field don't have. 


A blog lets you build an email list. They have an idea of the information and the products you have and they like them. An email list gives them a chance to get more of what they already like. They get to be the first to know about new products, upcomming sales, and promotional events. Being added to your list can give them VIP access to what's going on with your company. And SUPER Bonus...it keeps you on their mind when they need your product.


Blogs build relationships.A blog gives them a chance to see you and get an idea of who you are. You become that friend they go to for advice in that area. It lets you build trust. Trust is super important, because people prefer to buy from those they know and trust. It puts you ahead of the game in sales because where most people are starting from scratch at the time of the sales interaction, you are starting as a trusted ally.


The final and (in my opinion) the best thing a blog can do for your business is it works for you 24/7!! Your blog can tell people about products any time day or night. Whenever someone is looking for the information it's there representing you. And if you have an online store, your blog is making sales for you. Or it's booking appointments. Imagine coming into your office to find a list of people who WANT you to call them. Or waking up to discover that you made money while you were sleeping. That's a pretty amazing feeling.


Get your own done for you authority blog here and watch your success grow.

SBS affects thousands of people. It keeps them from creating success or even from finishing what they start. What is SBS? It's Shiny Ball Syndrome. That's where a person jumps from one thing to another because it's new and looks good. 


Jumping from product to product and system to system prevents you from succeeding in anything. SBS prevents you from sticking with something long enough to see results or it may even get you to quit before you've done all the steps.


If you want to see success with any product, you need to be laser focused. Laser focus means that you ignore all the other great ideas and products. Focus on learning one aspect at a time and implimenting it until you see success in your product or system. Don't let SBS steal your focus and sabatoge your success.
