EP 75 - Using Challenges as Building Blocks with Simone Giangiordano
How can entrepreneurs maintain an excellent work-life balance while building thriving businesses around our limitations? Simone Giangiordano has battled with health challenges all her life and has still remained at the top of her game in her different ventures. After two decades, she quit her corporate job because of the negative effect on her health and decided to begin her entrepreneurship journey and work from home. However, she realized that the poor habits she had while working in her corporate job continued to impede the growth of her personal businesses. Simone is our guest on today’s show and discusses the importance of taking care of the three core areas of our lives: mind, body, and spirit, and how the alignment of these areas can affect our businesses.  She shares tips on achieving alignment in the three areas, identifying and understanding your peculiar challenges, and practical strategies for dealing with them. About Simone Simone Giangiordano, better known as Simone G, is a lifestyle and business coach. An encourager. A lover of the ocean. She believes the courage to say “I CAN’T” will set you free.   Simone brings hope to those with invisible health challenges impacting the quality of their life and their business success. She gives voice to the idea that societal and cultural norms are far more limiting that any limitation we have, and that by sharing compassion, we can overcome many of the misconceptions and much of the stigma around chronic health challenges. Simone’s transition from her corporate career of nearly two decades to entrepreneurship was the direct result of her health challenges. As she figured out how to manage a business alongside several illnesses and injuries, she shut down her first business three times in the first five years of her entrepreneurial career. It was during these years that saying “I CAN” nearly broke her. Thankfully, the last shutdown was back in 2012! In caregiving for her father, she learned what matters most is the impact we have and the love we share. That experience gave her the courage to be silent no more and to author the Building Balance to Empower programs, which were created to guide others struggling with compromised health in building a business and creating a lifestyle that supports their work and well-being. Today, she uses her Signature Program The Power of I Can’t® alongside her business coaching to help her clients transform their lives, their businesses, and their well-being.

Ep 74 - How to Land Your Dream Job in 12 Weeks With Super Julie
In this episode, SJ talks with us about her proven recipe to help anyone land their dream job within 12 weeks. She discusses tools for getting your job search strategy right and how she has been able to help 90 to 95% of her client secure remote jobs. She also shares tips on how and why you should create a comfortable atmosphere during the interview that fosters engaging conversations that help the interviewer fall in love with you. She also shares a few personal strategies to easily navigate job offers, salary expectations in an interview, and eventually negotiate for better pay. She walks us through how to lead interviewers to the conclusions you desire and leave room for and navigate multiple job offers simultaneously. Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we end up not getting the job. SJ discusses why this happens and how to bounce back from such rejection. About SJ At the age of 16, I tested for a learning disability, and lo and behold; I had a fabulous combo platter of auditory processing disorder and dyslexia. I had spent the previous ten years learning how to verbally communicate and solve problems while delegating my most challenging tasks. I did all of this unknowingly and was getting schooled on how to be a leader. As a young adult, I quickly rose in corporate jobs leading creative teams for Victoria’s Secret, MTV, Nike, Estee Lauder, and Carter's Childrenswear. I never felt like I fit in; I was ashamed of my learning disability; it was a secret that I wouldn’t share with others. I knew how to get a high-level position without having a Master’s degree, how to charm my way by developing relationships, negotiate the offer and, regardless of my hurdles, lead with confidence. I created the recipe for getting the salary that I deserved. Today, I’m an entrepreneur, and our company helps people get the career and salary they deserve regardless of their challenges. We work with Veterans, stay-at-home parents, immigrants, folks from the LGBTQIA community, and folks with addictions or alcoholism. We have helped formerly incarcerated individuals, people who have lost their passion for what they do, people with disabilities - learning, physical or psychiatric; we are the people who help take fear and formality out of the career. We’ve helped over 16,000 people get the job they deserve. Links Website - superpurposes.com LinkedIn - linkedin.com/in/super-julie-braun

How Content Marketing Differs from Copywriting
Today, I discuss the difference between content marketing and copywriting as well as how both can be leveraged to ensure that both short term and long-term marketing goals are met. The fundamental difference of both styles is the fact that with copywriting you need to get sales as fast as possible, whereas with content marketing you need to build trust that would make other people want to do business with you for the long term and refer you to other people. I strongly believe that both styles of writing need to be included as part of your overall content marketing.

Deadline Management for Work at Home Professionals
For a work at home person, meeting deadlines is at the core of one's credibility. Therefore, it is particularly important to understand how to manage those deadlines. Deadline management is the process of organizing, prioritizing, and planning workload withing your available time. The components for ensuring deadlines are met include: understanding the tasks at hand understanding the capabilities or you and your team having a clear understanding of available time With all these components, one can always estimate a perfect and a worst-case scenario. Also, communication is particularly important in case of changes to the deadline structure. One of the ways to manage deadlines is to manage tasks using task management platforms like Trello, Asana, Monday, Airtable among others.  You should be able to set deadlines that are between the most probable date as well as the worst-case scenario. Choosing a date in-between will always put you in a good spot and help you finish off most task before their due dates. You need to properly weigh the promptness or urgency of tasks to make sure you are knocking off the most important ones off the list first. Some hacks for getting stuff done faster: - Follow the time slice strategy - Do similar tasks within the same time slices - Do complimentary tasks concurrently Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash

The Effects of Energy Drinks
Energy drinks are growing in popularity for people all around the world and it's mostly because they help us keep going even when our body doesn't feel like it. From the little homework I did, I realized that the key ingredients for Energy drinks are Sugar and Caffeine. This makes the side effects of Energy drinks more predictable. They included, weight gain, nervousness, anxiety, among others. For their benefits, we get the energy pump we need as soon as we drink them. To a significant extent, we need to balance energy drinks intake at least if we don't plan to ditch them. For one, most drinks that contain caffeine are not things we should depend on because the more we drink, the more tolerance we build and the more caffeine we need to do the stuff we need it to do. I personally am getting to the point where I need about 0.8l of energy drink to be at my optimum while when I started about two months ago, I needed just 0.2l to stay sharp. For me though, the switch to malt-based energy drink made me want more because of the amazing taste. But here's the deal, I am on my way to do more homework and decide what's best for me to eat/drink to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle without needing to resort to energy drinks and lower my stress levels. For now, I have increased my intake of water while still taking daily multivitamins recommended by my pharmacist to help lower effects of stress. I'll like to get your information about how to manage stress levels naturally, how many cans of energy drink or cups of coffee you need to stay active vs what you started with.

How to Use Trello to Improve Productivity
Trello is a project management/task management app that works on the web or via their native app for various platforms. It was created in 2011 by Fog Creek software and sold to Atlassian in 2017 for $425m.  Trello uses workspaces, boards, and cards to represent information and help people manage tasks and work. As far as pricing goes, a lot of people including me use Trello for free, but the paid pricing starts at $5 a month to up to 17.50 a month. For people who believe that Trello has just the board view, wait til you see the premium and enterprise version of Trello which I would refer to as Trello on steroids! Getting started with Trello is easy, as stated you need to be able to visualize your businesses as workspaces, the projects as boards, the flow as lists and the details as cards. Cards come with a lot of options including Description, Activity (When you need to add detail to a description), due date, reminders, attachment, cover, labels and edit members of a card. One of the major reasons why teams love Trello is because of power-ups and automations.

How to Manage Work from Home Burnout
Truth be told, working from home can be more demanding than working from an office. This is because working from home can blur the line between work and life. For one, it can be more mentally demanding as you must play the duo task of manager and staff depending on what needs to be done and what skillsets need to be used. DISCLAIMER: I am not an expert on the matter of stress. I'm ranting about the subject. I would say, the most important thing we need to ensure we don't get WFH Burnout is to prioritize rest. I say this because burnout comes from overly exerting oneself and the most natural thing to do is the exact opposite of overly exerting oneself and this translates to rest. Some of the ways we overly exert ourselves is with trying to get everything done and not having the time to delegate work or home tasks to other people. Another thing that gets us stressed out is spending days and sometimes weeks indoors without really going out. A quick visit to the grocery store doesn't count as going out. It's an errand and that also translates to work. I have read a couple of times about how we need to move around and not limit ourselves to one space. Personally, I and my wife talked about taking a day off each week. This is time we use to switch off every work or errand and we are not doing anything work. A lot of WFH professionals never really get to take a vacation mostly because we don't see ourselves as assets. I am an asset to myself. You are an asset to yourself, and you owe it to yourself to have some fun. Go out there and unwind from every form of work and refresh your mental health. Lastly, I will say, eat healthy, do breathing exercises and light to medium physical exercises every day. A five to ten minute walk each morning will go a long way.

How to Find a Job on LinkedIn
As you already know, when it comes to job hunting or building your professional network. LinkedIn is the #1 platform. In my opinion, any professional seeking to reach the top of their career needs to have a presence on LinkedIn. Here's why: Over seven hundred million users over 200 countries represented on LinkedIn almost-eight of LinkedIn users are decision makers Over 50 million companies are listed on the platform With all these stats it's easy to see that LinkedIn has built a platform that's a force to reckon with as far as companies and top-level executives are concerned. Asides that fact that you need to set up your profile completely and set up your certifications, it is also necessary to collect recommendations from your active LinkedIn friends. One of the most important things to do on the platform is to share your professional success stories on the platform and also engage with top stories in your niche. For me, my favorite feature on the platform is when I get work anniversary reminders for people in my connection. I am able to congratulate a few of them every now and then. Photo by 胡 卓亨 on Unsplash

How to Find a Job on Instagram
Instagram is mostly a photo and video sharing app where people go to for entertainment, a bit of education, catching up with their celebrities and icons as well as getting some updates from news accounts as well as businesses they are interested in. Let's not forget that like Facebook, recruiters are also likely to check you out on Instagram especially when they have tried finding you on Facebook and to no avail. Unlike other platforms, it get a bit more personal when you're branding yourself on IG. As you can tell, it's a visual platform and a lot of things can go wrong when you don't present yourslef the right way on Instagram. Hence, on Instagram, your personal brand is the key to everything and when it comes to IG, your offers are most likely going to be ones you are not looking out for but mostly offers that come looking for you. Here's how to brand yourself on Instagram: - Use a great profile picture - Let your bio sell you with as little words as possible - Let your highlights cover the important stuff in your life that your prospective client/employer will need to know - Use a multilink platform like linktree so that people can see the important links that highlight your professionalism - Post photos of remarkable stuff that you have done. - Give relatable tips as captions to highlight your strenghts - let your feed be a timeline of all the great stuff you are capable of - follow and engage with hashtags that are related to your niche - follow and engage with people that are leaders in your niche or can positively impact on your awesomeness At the end of the day, never forget that you are selling yourself on a personal level with Instagram and as such you shouldn't be shy to let people know all that you are capable of.   Photo by Phil Desforges on Unsplash

How to find a job on Twitter
Twitter is regarded as a microblogging platform where debates are raised, and tensions can flare. Amid all that twitter is known for, people do get jobs on this platform that is pulling the plug on fleets. It starts from ensuring that your profile reflects the image you want to project. So, for one, it might be to show off how he is an Engineering wizard while another just wants to highlight how well she makes shoes. For both, one thing is certain, they must put their best foot forward. While last week, we talked about creating your Facebook profile as you would prepare a CV, with Twitter, it's a bit different, you are creating your business card. If you have to separate personal life from business, by all means run two different twitter accounts. The next thing to do is to follow people and businesses you would like to network/work with so that with time, when the opportunity presents itself, you can make meaningful comments on their posts that will make them notice you. Another advanced trick is to use the advanced search of twitter to look for other professionals working with businesses where you would like to work and then try to build a relationship with them. Another thing you can do with Advanced search is to look for available job postings on twitter by including location filters and adding keywords like jobs, openings, or positions, you can be able to see some results that might match the perfect job for you. The constant thing you need to do irrespective of the platform you are trying to get a job from is content creation also known as storytelling. You must be able to make content that people would love to engage with and hence you will get noticed and be seen as an authority with time especially in a case where your points are valid and are not perceived as biased.

How to Find a Job on Facebook
Facebook as we all know is a great place to stay connected with family and friends, and while a lot of the younger generation are finding Instagram and Snapchat a better place to hang out, Facebook is still relevant for them especially in job hunting.   A whole lot of people don't even know that there are other cool things to do on Facebook asides staying connected with friends and family.   Facebook has a job board that can easily be accessed at facebook.com/jobs   On this job board, employers can list openings and job seekers can apply immediately without having to leave the platform.   Over sixty-five million businesses have pages on Facebook and even if you don't consider it so, Facebook is the second most popular social network for recruiters.   Job posting is free for recruiters and you don't have to pay to apply to any job posting now which makes it a win-win for both companies and job seekers.   Before you go looking for jobs on Facebook though, you need to tidy your profile as that can easily disqualify you if your Facebook profile doesn't match your CV.   Use a professional profile picture. Make sure any content you don't want recruiters to see are not set to public Fill in your recent job positions Enter in your education details Show your most relevant skills in your profile (it's just under the education section) Show off your important achievements on your profile Share your opinion about topics in your niche on your profile Make sure you're in the top groups for your niche on Facebook Facebook has a projects tool that you can use to boost your status Follow the pages of companies where you wish to work Photo by Zac Wolff on Unsplash

The Truth about Hashtags and Mentions on Social Media
Hashtags are a great way for social media platforms to curate posts based on topics set by the content poster. Mentions are ways to alert other account owners that they are being talked about. Hashtags can help you improve visibility if they are used correctly but do not generally mean that you will see a big growth using them. To use them effectively, add a few specific hashtags to your posts, and more importantly, make sure your account is set to public. Some of the best hashtag types to use are Location Hashtags Branded Hashtags Holiday/Event-related hashtags At the end of the day, check the impact that hashtags are making on your posts if you are a business account. If the effect of hashtags is minimal, you probably don't need them.

Graphic Design Cloud Apps that Make Graphics Work Easier
In this episode, I will share some DIY Graphic design cloud apps that make graphic work easier. Canva is the most popular drag-and-drop design tool out there It has templates that cover just about every design need you will have with lots of free assets that will allow your work to be done in such a short time However, chances are people can tell a Canva Graphic a mile away and as such if you are trying to show off uniqueness, I will ask you to stay away from Canva except, of course, you are building your own template from the scratch. Crello is a much more visually appealing DIY design tool and was created by the people at deposit photos. It looks similar to Canva but has templates that look more professional and are less popular than what you will find on Canva. A higher percentage of their design templates are illustration-based instead of photo-based and this sets them apart from the pack Apparently, if you are using Crello pro, you have access to loads of images from deposit photos. Adobe Spark is the alternative from Adobe that does also what Canva does, however, their library of designs can be confusing as most times I am unable to filter designs by a particular size. Spark is definitely easy to use and this has toned down the ability to have more control over your design. If you are looking for creative freedom, Spark is not the tool for you and we can't blame Adobe, the pros have other tools to choose from in their arsenal and Spark is just a toy for the newbies to play with. While I have not used Easil ever, I have heard and read great reviews about this app that suggests that it actually is worth looking into.  Easil templates have the canva feel to them but are also professional-looking. They have a decent tool that helps with background removal from photos as well as branding assets that help your design to always be within the assets that are approved for the brand in terms of color, fonts, and logo variations. As a Canva user, Easil is the easiest platform to transit to. Stencil is by far the easiest tool to use to generate quotes. There's a huge library for quotes and they have over 1.5 million royalty-free stock photos in their library and is the only platform that has massive integration with Google web fonts.  Stencil is however very limited if you will not be paying $12 (or 20) a month because the free version allows you to export just 10 images a month while the $9 (or 15) plan gives you access to just 50 exports a month. If you are not willing to go unlimited, don't walk the Stencil path but if you ask me, I believe the unlimited plan is worth it and I will recommend paying yearly. Snappa's website looks like a slightly modified copy of Stencil however, Sujan Patel seems to love it and gave them an outstanding recommendation. It has a good background remover, allows you just three exports a month if you are using the free plan. I typically love their YouTube end screen arts as well as their Advertising templates. They also curated awesome zoom virtual background images that are absolutely beautiful. Due to the quality of templates here, I see no reason why you shouldn't pay for what you get.

Let people understand where your inspiration comes from as a graphics designer Show consistence and persistence Ensure you meet your clients' expectations by giving realistic deadlines. This will especially improve their likelihood to recommend you to others. It's ok to specialize in a certain style and type of Graphics design however, this doesn't you from taking other jobs that you are confident of executing.
