PositivityChange Post : Issue 43 : Positively Moving in the Right Direction

Hey everyone!

I am also very big on storytelling and being transparent. I have been an eBay reseller for a little over one year. I have experienced ups and downs like anyone else. I am glad to have this extra income to give me more choices. Lately I have been receiving weird activity (unpaid item strikes from people who don’t buy, fraud, etc.), however, I’ve pushed through because that’s what we do here! Yet, I admit it had me questioning if I want to continue. Earlier this month, I received a sale and was going to take the Fourth of July off. I meant it was the holiday so why not? Then I saw one of the YouTubers I subscribed to drop a fresh new video into my feed, the day BEFORE the Fourth of July! It forced me to boss up and do my eBay livestream on July 3rd. I didn’t know that this small spark would result in my receiving 9 sales in 2 weeks! It is all about positively moving forward in the right direction. Watch my video here:

Yes, we are at the midpoint of July. I know that we will all end our July much better than we have started.

PositivityChange Post : Issue 41 : Declare Your Independence from Indifference

I wish all of my loyal readers, a Happy Fourth of July! In keeping with this holiday’s independence theme, this issue will cover how to overcome indifference and mediocrity; and, I will use myself as an example!

Oftentimes we don’t know how we’ve gotten stuck. It is not an overnight occurrence. It happens gradually. Your standards start slipping. You become okay with it not being to your standards because no one will notice that minor defect; however, that minor defect becomes a major one and people start noticing. Once they start noticing they start coming to you about it; and, then you wonder how has the quality decreased so significantly that you hardly recognize your work, and in some instances your life? Well, that’s because we become comfortable with just being okay. Mediocrity erodes a lot faster than excellence. I am bringing this example up because I have experienced this in my life while studying for the ITIL certification.

PositivityChange Post – Issue 40 – Here’s to a Positive Halfway Point

Hey everyone!

This week marks not only the end of June but the first half of 2017. This is a great time to reflect on what accomplishments we’ve made during these first six months. If you are unsatisfied about your progress then you have a whole nother six months to get it right; or, at least start over. Now in June is a perfect time to press the restart button is you don’t feel that you’ve accomplished as much as you want.

As for moi, I have some great news that I wish to share. I have completed one of my 2017 accomplishments by passing the ITIL Foundation certification!  I have been wanting to obtain this certification for nearly one year. I have received some training money so I am grateful about this.

Here are the resources that will help you evaluate and press the reset button (if necessary) during the halfway point

Stacia Pierce of the Huffington Post gives you her 5 tips for pressing the reset button if you feel like you are stuck in your career:

PositivityChange Post : Issue 35 : Finding Positive Change on Social Media

Hey everyone!

Welcome to an all-new PositivityChange Post issue! Here I am going to discuss how to find positive change on social media. The Internet can be a nasty and demoralizing place where people are doxing (term for posting personally identifiable information on the Internet without their permission). However, there are beacons of hope that I want to highlight!

But, first I have a big announcement to share with everyone: My Increase Your Career Savviness article has been added to Medium’s Personal Branding channel! This is huge news because Medium is one of the biggest blogs out there. Moreover, as an Amazon bestseller with a personal branding book (shameless plug!),  being added is confirmation that I know what I am talking about.

Now here are some of my great positive change places to go on the Internet:

PositivityChange Post : Issue 34 : You Want to Learn How to Positively Pivot Your Career? Read Here!

Welcome to an all-new issue! We are talking about pivoting and positioning yourself for greatness! This is a very appropriate message with all of the many college graduates receiving their degrees. Even if you have been over a decade removed from Pomp and Circumstance blaring in the background while you cross the stage, pivoting is still important. Now is just as a good time as ever to evaluate your career. Maybe you have graduated from your current work life and feel the need to do something different. I am feeling just like you today. This morning I have awakened to learn that my Increasing You Career Savviness article has received 100 views and 50 likes on LinkedIn! It is a career pivoting experience for me because I have implemented changes that my sales coach has requested. Also unlike last year, now I know how to build upon this momentum. I have learned that alluring titles and posting to related LinkedIn groups spread my message farther than by myself. In 2016, I didn’t have a strategy for capitalizing upon receiving high recognition whenever one of my posts went viral. Now with nearly two years of blogging under my belt, I know have a social media strategy. There will be a follow-up article delving deeper into S.W.O.T. Analysis coming soon this week. As a loyal subscriber, you will get the article link as soon as I publish it. However, I will say that content is still king! I magnify this because there is an abundance of spam posts and bad writing on LinkedIn Pulse. I have always taken the approach that I have to post my best work on LinkedIn because it is the business social media site.  When you post into groups, your peers are judging the cohesiveness of your post. You don’t want to embarrass yourself through spam.
