Pinterest Management Services: Eight Ways to Sell on Pinterest in 2019

by koku_jin
For the last few months I’ve been searching for furniture and home decor ideas for my new home. Not as a Pinterest Management Services expert but as a everyday consumer. I couldn’t believe how many stores have completely abandoned their Pinterest account. For example, as I was saving images from Restoration Hardware about pieces that I wanted to purchase I noticed that they had a verified account but no images. Nada! As you can see in the image above they have over 80K followers with 5.5 million monthly viewers. How is that even possible if they haven’t pinned (meaning saved) […]

How to Raise Your Self Worth and Trust Yourself More

by mind development scholar
When you look in the mirror, who do you see? Do you see someone you trust, admire, and believe in? Or do you see someone who is always making mistakes and falling short? The reality is who you see has little to do with what you are visually looking at. It has everything to do with what the little voice in your head is saying about you at any given time. That little voice in your head, the one is constantly judging everything… that is your self worth. Your self worth can be your best friend or your worst enemy. […]

4 Ways to Know Your Goals Are Too Small  

by mind development scholar
When deciding on long- and short-term goals, perhaps the Goldilocks and the Three Bears fable best exemplifies a healthy process. If you aim too high, not attaining them can be too hot. Aim too low, and your motivation could get cold. Setting the best goals for your needs is a lot like serving porridge, it needs to be just right.

People who imagine staying fairly constant over the years may have more satisfying lives than those who think they’ll grow to be different, according to the study. “When people think about themselves over time, the people who perceive there to be the most similarity between who they are now and who they will be in the future […]

But what if you could plan for all that? Last month, I challenged myself to accomplish an ambitious goal in 30 days.

Not Doing That Thing? You Need Desire, Competence, and Capacity

by personal development journalist
Frustrated things aren’t getting done? Consider my Desire, Competence, and Capacity model. (larger) Frustrated that an employee isn’t completing their important assignments? Or maybe you’re the one struggling as the overloaded agency leader? Perhaps you’ve told someone—or yourself—“Just do it!” That’s a good slogan for Nike, but it’s not good advice for the chronically stuck. Running an agency is more complicated than following a reductive sports slogan—but you can solve this, with the right approach! To get unstuck, use my agency consulting model for troubleshooting a “not done” situation: Desire, Competence, and Capacity. Three Requirements to Get Things Done When […]
