Are you the type of person who starts every semester with that little promise to yourself – “I’m going to make this my best semester ever!” Do you start the semester strong, get lazy during the middle then cram when it comes time for finals? Maybe you’re the type of person who feels like they do everything right but just can’t seem to make the grades they desire.
If you can relate to any of the above questions then this article is for you. Most students start the semester strong because they have a fresh slate to work with. Then, as the semester drags on, apathy kicks in and students loose sight of their goals.
In this article, I want to address the 5 main reasons students fail to make the grades they desire. I hope these points help you …
At last I have finally got my e-book “How To Create A Video Using Microsoft PowerPoint” uploaded to my site, it has been proofed modified and reproofed.
My great thanks go to Stephen Bray for his expert assistance and suggestions to improve the book along with his proofing abilities,
I know it would not have been as good without his help. Fortunately Stephen helped me so no marketeer could ruin my efforts.
The e-book has ended up at 53 pages and is going to be free to everyone, all I ask is that you leave me a comment below as to what you think of the book. These may be used in future publicity for the e-book.
If you want a copy fill in the opt-in box, at the top of the right column, with your name and …
You may need to find training programs to for new or existing employees. Understanding the way the company works, how the policies and procedures affect employees, how the enhancement of knowledge leads to enhancement in productivity are some of the objectives of such training programs.
How do you ensure the success of such corporate training solutions? Here are the important factors that could help achieve success.
I said it. I never seems to fail though. The internet comes up with some cool thing that could change the world and help us all further humanity. Then the marketers find it and ruin it. It happened with Twitter, remember?
Twitter was cool and hip and a great way to connect with new people. Until marketers realized that that many virgin eyeballs could spell big bucks. Suddenly Twitter was overrun with spammers and rendered about as useless as a screen door on a submarine.
Normally I’d have titled this post “Spammers Ruin Everything,” but I realized today that it’s not just the bad apples that spoil the internet. Sometimes it’s just the regular apples.
Case and point is today’s post from John Chow in which he talks about Sweeva (think Adwords meets StumbleUpon). It was while reading his post …
That’s right, Sprint. One of the most hated cellular carriers in America can teach you a shitload about building your online business.
Now I’ll tell you up front that I’ve worked for Sprint for years, but that has nothing to do with what they can teach you.
I’ll also tell you up front that I have Verizon as my personal carrier. Again, nothing to do with helping you, just a little full disclosure. Now, first things first.
Why is Sprint so seemingly hated by customers? I have no idea. Their plans are the best, their coverage is great and they have some of the most innovative phones available. But none of those things are the secrets to growing your business.
Over delivering. The old saying is to under promise and over deliver and Sprint does that …
Today is the last day of my four day weekend. Was I productive? Not in the least. I only did one “fun” thing, which was going to see an extremely horrible movie.. Max Payne.
The rest of the time I spent sleeping, on the computer or.. eating. How pathetic could my life get. I didn’t even attempt to study, or do homework. I should have read my book so I can do the project that’s due on the 24th.
I still have 150+ pages to go, a review to write and 3 sentence summaries on every single page. YES! Every single page. IB Teachers go a little over board. Reading is fun and all, but the writing part is what made me procrastinate.
Now I’m going to be rushing and staying up in the wee hours since I have practice …
My little brother ( who is looking like a giraffe) and I just got back from my orientation, so I’m a little fresh about this. I keep him company to make sure he stayed motivated. So now going to college for an orientation program was a huge thing for both of us.. If you’re debating whether or not to attend it, you definitely should as it’s a great source of any information that you need.
Every school’s freshman orientation program is different, but here are some things to expect:
Alexa is a Web information company that tracks and ranks Web sites worldwide. On their homepage, you can enter a Web address and see where that site ranks in relation to millions of other sites.
When I began my site tune-up last month, my site was way down into the two million. Ignoring my site for several years had done a lot of damage and this low ranking was the result.
Over the last few weeks, I got to work revamping elements of my site. I didn’t think there would be any quick or radical effect, but when I checked my rank on Alexa today I was surprised to find that my site had rocketed up to the 1.3 million spot. That’s an increase of well over a million positions.
This rank isn’t exactly newsworthy since it means there are …
Together we’ve examined ways to know that you’re on the edge of a financial cliff.
Whether living paycheck to paycheck, knowing that just one more payment would be the final straw, or having nothing in a savings account or emergency fund, moving back away from the edge begins with knowing how close you really are.
But what are the things or situations that pull people to the edge of a financial cliff in the first place?
Pull? Don’t you mean PUSH? No, you read that right. If something pushes you, it probably wasn’t in your control. I’m thinking of medical bills, an extended job layoff, or some other true emergency. In these cases, even a well funded emergency fund can be quickly depleted.…
A life of presuming that everyone is out to get you is not Woody Allen-funny, it is Stephen King-misery.
I had my annual skin examination yesterday. Given my ethnicity and some bad sunburns in the past, I always approach the visit with some trepidation. After a 20-minute scalp to soles exam, I left reassured that those scattered paint dots of extra pigmentation were innocent.
But am I wise to be reassured? What guarantee do I have that my dermatologist is well trained, thorough and up to date? And, if I, experienced in medicine must accept her reassurances as valid, how much more trusting must a lay person be?
I’m a complete lay person in another active sphere of my life currently, as we buy and sell a home. I speak to my realtor daily. Yesterday, I spent 3 hours in …
