What's Much, Much Better Than Motivational Quotes?

I know people who peddle in motivational quotes. They hunt them down, share them on Facebook and move onto the next one. Heck, I used to be like that with an old Twitter account. So I get the appeal of them, I really do.

But there's a big ol' problem with quote farming:It has a way of becoming hollow and pointless.You read a quote and something about it resonates with you. Maybe it's clever and insightful. Maybe you've heard it before but now, in one moment where you stare at your screen, you truly get it.So, being the generous person you are, you share it with everyone you know.You look for another inspirational quote. Most are rather trite, so you keep digging. But you find a good one. Then another. You share these too.The more you look, the emptier these quotes sound. And you start seeing the same quotes popping up again and again. Don't those hacks know we've heard that one a thousand times before?If you keep looking, you find a sea of decent motivational q…

Make Your Inner Critic Pay Rent

I know plenty of people who struggle with meditation. They'll say something like it doesn't interest them, they can't sit still, or they gave it a go and it didn't work.

It might even be true.But for many people, they don't like coming face-to-face with that voice inside your mind. You know the one I mean - the one that whispers horrible things to you about your looks, talents, successes, failures, prospects and worthiness to keep breathing.The sorts of things you'd never say to another person, even your worst enemy.It's always there, anticipating your mistakes, just waiting for the chance to laugh at you.So if this voice, or the deeper well of anxiety and insecurity it comes from, won't leave you alone, then it's time to take control.But you don't gain control by fighting it.Think of this inner critic like a neighbouring kingdom... with an enormous army. Much stronger than yours. If you fight it head on, not only will it not work, but you'l…

Create a Shrine for Your Magicless Rituals

The unconscious mind loves rituals. It adores them. On some level, it believes they're real.

Because, on some level, they are.I don't mean you can sacrifice a goat to bring the rains. I do mean you can create certain results by repeating certain actions. If you create a ritual that gives you superhuman confidence, then it'll work eventually - by pure repetition, anchoring and placebo.But the rules of not-magic don't stop there.Alongside magic spells is the notion of sacred spaces.Whether or not locations can literally be sacred doesn't matter. If you act as though they are, you'll start to respond as if they are.Which means you can create a shrine - an inner sanctum - inside your own home.Did I say 'can'? That could just as easily read 'should'.One of the classic meditation tips, especially for beginners and folk who struggle with it, is to create a dedicated space for it. Always meditate in the same spot and don't do anything else there. 

Circular Patterns in Venture Capital and Angel Investing: Interesting Trends and Tips

1. During the past decade, the size of seed rounds has remained stagnant and number of deals have decreased. To the untrained eye, it seems that there is more competition for seed dollars. Below the surface, however, startups are recycling founders experience. The reason why the number of deals has decreased is that teams are better prepared, are more financially savvy, have access to better-priced support, waste less time and resources, are using other forms of funding PRIOR to seed rounds, and are pivoting or deciding to get out earlier -at the pre-seed stage. (Founders will jump into exploring new opportunities).

Founding teams are recycled

2. More firms seeking seed rounds already have sales, expression of interests, and some form of market validation as a result of the circular economy of entrepreneurial mind and action. Firms that seek seed rounds are more advanced than 10 years ago. Founders are using other ways to get funded (as they should! Because seed funding is very expensi…

Advantages of Employing a Branding & Design Agency

If you own a business or if you’re planning on opening a business, there will come a time when you have to step into a branding and design agency. It can be for various reasons like to create a logo, develop a website, put you on social media platforms or to even run marketing campaigns! 

The goal of owning a business is to give the people what they want and establish a business in the market. While you might have the data required on how to run your business, only a creative agency can help you connect with your audience and help you stay ahead of your competition. Competence and Experience:

Each business has its own area of expertise. This is why we go to that particular business to buy their product or use their service.

The human digestive system works non-stop to produce enzymes and process the foods to extract essential nutrients, but junk food, adulterated foods, and chemicals that we consume create extra pressure on the system. The body produces digestive enzymes; however, it cannot produce enough to keep up with the typical western diet, which is full of enzyme-depleted, over-cooked, and processed and canned foods. This is one of the main reasons for the rise in digestive health problems. 

Nearly 7 hundred thousand people in the USA suffer everyday from digestive issues such as heartburn, acid reflux, GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disorder), IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Indigestion, Constipation, Diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea and so on. But why do we suffer from so many digestive problems? The answer is that we eat in a hurry, we do not chew carefully, we rush our eating times, or worse, we eat on the run.

The digestion process works well when we eat properly, have proper rest, a…

Style at Home: Tips for Decorating Awkward Spaces

Do you have an awkward corner or craggy nook in your house that you hate? Well, worry not folks. It is time to embrace that part of the house and transform it into something classy and modern. We have compiled a bunch of tips for you to decorate the most awkward spaces inside your house.

Behind the Door Decor

We all enjoy empty spaces when we first shift into a new house. But soon we want color in every possible nook and cranny. A place which might need your attention is the back of the door. Doors are not open all the time, and once they are closed, they leave behind a sad, empty wall. You do not need to crowd the area behind the door and make it impossible to open it. What you can do is put a hanging mirror or a wall decoration. If there is more room, you can even add a small console table. 

Styling a Corner

Some of the Characteristics of Good Business Leaders

What is it that makes a good business leader? Studies have been carried out but have not all come to the same conclusions. This is because some leaders have certain characteristics while others have differing ones or some that overlap with others. Some leaders are very extrovert, while others are not, but yet are still successful.

If it was easy to be a successful leader then everyone could do it, but that is not the case. Some people are naturally introvert, some really don't want to be a leader. They just want to go to work, do their job, and go home again. They really have no ambition or desire to be promoted and to lead others. Others may have a burning desire to be promoted yet are not seen to have the right qualities by management.So what are some of the qualities of a good leader? Successful leaders are fearless. That is not to say that they have no fears. Everybody does. But they face those fears head on. They see them as a challenge, as something to be overcome. A good le…
