A word from Rhonda…

2013-01-28_110340

Summer is officially here, and a few days ago all of us here in the US celebrated and hopefully remembered our fallen soldiers on Memorial Day. The kids and I went to a local parade where I was fortunate to shake the hand of some who served. What a great honor and privilege it is to live in a land where I’m free. Where so many things are made possible for you, our children, and me.

I’m officially heading into week 4 of my new MOOC I’m taking. I find it amazing how much we forget we learned. I was an A student in English and Literacy classes back in high school, but high school is so far behind me I decided to take a refresher. It does seem like they are teaching some new stuff, but that might just be the old brain not remembering. 🙂 Anyway, the course is going pretty well. I’ve scored 100% on all the graded works and tests thus far except for one quiz, and I missed one question. I’m hoping to improve my writing skills as I do enjoy writing, and to have better business writing skills would definitely be a big plus.

The Money Made Me Do It

Article by Jason Leister, Editor of The Client Letter via Art of Clients

If you are not reading the Client Letter by Jason Leister then you should be! I have been receiving and reading his Letters for some time now and they really resonate with me. They are full of valuable insights that helped me to see clearly through some of my decision making processes. This is an excerpt from his most recent Client Letter:

How many times have you accepted a client that wasn’t right for you simply because you wanted / needed the money?

In a perfect world, you would never do something like that. But here in this world, this is what can happen… Read more…

Q How do I add a “tweet this” button to my website?

A : I’ve used a few different methods and of course there are social sharing plugins that you can use as well, but if you just want the simplest code to add your own tweet this button to exactly the spot you want to add it then this code will help you do that.

What is a SERP?

Screen Capture of a Google SERP

If you own a business and have a website than at some point you have probably heard the term SERP before, but may not know what that means or what it is? So, what is a SERP anyway?

A SERP is an acronym for “search engine results page.”

Let’s say you are looking to hire a virtual assistant you might go to Google and type in the search box “virtual assistant” or “hire a virtual assistant”.  What appears on that page after you hit search is your SERP (search engine results page).

I found an article over on smallbiztrends.com that explains this in more detail. You should check it out.

Software Pick: copy

So you’ve all most likely heard of Dropbox and many of you are probably using it. There is another program very similar to Dropbox out there called copy. The key difference I see so far is you don’t lose storage space when someone else shares with you. You are only counted for the actual storage space you utilize personally.

To start with copy simply click here and get your 15GB of FREE of space and give it a try. I just signed up a few days ago so I’m still learning about it as well. Please be sure to come back and share your thoughts and experience using copy.
