10 tips to kick off your business in the new year

10 tips to kick off your business in the new year

1. Draft a business plan. If you have been operating without a business plan, well it’s time to draft one because not only it’s essential to the success of your business but it serves as a guide to keep your company on track and a tool you can use to evaluate your performance and make necessary corrections.
2. Get a business mentor: As a business owner, you need someone to hold you accountable whom you can trust to assess your progress with a fresh pair of eyes.
3. Never stop learning: spend time learning the in’s and out’s of the industry you are in. Invest in books, audios, seminars and also the SBA website has a wealth of free resources you can use.
4. Leave it to the experts: most businesses fail because the owners think they can do it all. Hire the qualified candidates to help and advise you. The growth of your business depends more on your ability to lead a team of qualified people than being an expert in everything.
5. Know your competitors: Getting to know your competitors will help you identify what you have in common with them and how you can differentiate yourself.
6. Secure Online Presence & Management is very important.
7. Build a strong team: Recruit the best of the best, skillful people who are committed to your vision.
8. Promote a healthy workplace: people tend to be very productive when they are being valued for what they do. Give credit where credit is due and appreciate diversity.
9. Provide world class service: Treat your clients the way you want to be treated and even better. Go the extra mile, build lasting relationships.
10. Make time for yourself: Managing a business can stressful so while you are spending time focusing on the business and making sure everything is running smoothly, take some times to relax, recharge and live life outside of the office.
Have a happy, healthy and productive New Year!

Will Brazil be the 20th FIFA World Cup Champion?


2014-FIFA-World-Cup-Brazil

Let the games begin! The time we’ve all been waiting for is finally here, but the question is: who will take home the $35 Million winning prize and be the 20th FIFA World Cup Champion? Will it be #Brazil, #Argentina, #France, #Spain or #Netherlands?
With #Brazil being the host of the #2014FIFAWorldCup, they are playing the first game, and just because it’s BRAZIL as my brother put it, they have a greater chance at winning but let’s not forget what happened in 1950 when Brazil lost the championship to Uruguay in Brazil. Even though Brazil won more championships than all the other participating countries but they play better elsewhere than at home. Will they rewrite history this year or will they have a repeat of 1950? Personally I think Netherlands or France will take home the championship this year, what do you think?

Meet my personal stylist Cindy Lafalaise AKA Priiincesss

I always have a problem finding the right clothes to wear, the right accessories, the right shoes, and don’t even get me started with colors or what goes with what. It’s always been one of my challenges so instead I made a deal with my older sister, at the beginning she would shop for me and I would do all the house chores. It was good until she decided not to do it anymore because “It was about time that I did my own shopping” she said. With my busy schedule, and my lack of fashion sense I knew I needed to get a personal stylist but how much would it cost me?
Then I met Cindy Lafalaise best known as Priiincesss. She is the face and creator of Priiincesss, an online fashion boutique. Cindy has a passion for fashion and it shows with every single piece, her selections are fun and elegant at the same time. For someone like myself, I like to dress professional but at the same time; I want something sexy and trendy, something that not too many people already have but most importantly at a very reasonable price.
Even though her boutique Priiincesss is online but if you are local (Atlanta GA), she would go to you with selected pieces based on your likes or the occasion you are shopping for and advise you accordingly.
What makes Cindy and her boutique different from everyone else is that Cindy loves people, she is high spirited, full of energy, and she has a great personality. Her selections are fun, colorful, elegant and unique so whoever you are or the occasion you are shopping for, you will find something in her boutique just for you.
As an author and entrepreneur, I do a lot of public appearances so I always have to look my best and Cindy understands that. Her first pick for me for my book signing at the Radio Continentale 11th anniversary celebration in ATL was a big hit, it was not something that I would normally wear but she knew that particular piece would be great for the occasion. I trusted her and she was right, not only I got a lot of compliments on the dress but also I felt good wearing it. Fashion doesn’t have to be expensive with a fancy brand name on the tag, it just have to be unique to your style and match your personality. Sometimes you may not know what that is but Cindy will help you to find it, besides you are a PRIIINCESSS you can rock anything.
If you are like myself with a very busy schedule and no fashion sense or just want something different and affordable then Cindy should be your personal stylist and Priiincesss should be your only online boutique.
