Now serving A spoonful of Twitter Tips

plate

I do not know about you, however I was so confused about Twitter, in fact, I got anxious when I thought about tweeting.   To say I was confused is an understatement!  I actually hyperventilated at the mere thought of posting.

These tips are for the Newbie, the person who is so confused or has said “I do not see the point”.  If I had been armed with a few of these tips from the get go I may not have had so many anxious moments.  This is what prompted me to Put on my Tiara (thinking cap) and share a few tips with you.  Newbies should be spoon fed and not fed a full six course meal at the beginning. Therefore, I will be sharing this in easily digestible courses.

I want you to take a deep breath and just ease into it, you will be a pro in no time at all.

First Course- The Appetizer

Picking your Twitter Handle (name) is your first step, we shall call this The Appetizer. Things to consider when picking your Twitter Handle

  1. Will you be using this account to promote a cause, business or organization? If so you will want to choose a name that is easily recognized with that in mind. If you have branded yourself you will want to have an account to have others get to know and recognize you.  For instance, One of my “handles” is TiaraTotingLady   I also have this blog and a facebook page  named the same.  This   This is a great way for people to get to know, like and trust you.
  2. Go to Canva or another source to make a creative header-This will attract attention.
  3. Always have a profile picture- one never wants to have an Egghead as  their profile picture
  4. Get a bio ready – I am always fine tuning mine.  If you are using this for business get creative  see what/how others are  writing theirs                       Enjoy the process, do not let it stress you out,  Stay tune for part 2 (the main course ) next week  where I will share  how to get started posting, following and gaining followers.

Have you Jumped into the Live Stream Pool?

First we had Periscope, Then we had Facebook live. Now we are able to go live and share through so many different venues.  My question for you is Have you tried it?

Some of us were very early adopters of this fabulous new phenomenon and love sharing with others about WHY one would want to use it.  There are so many reasons to use it  regardless if you are in business or not.  People are now using their mobile devices as their source of getting information and entertainment.   You have an audience waiting for you , you just have to go and “attract their attention”

Many in Business  are using this to introduce themselves to their audience.  That audience is growing each and every day.  You see, people do business with people they  know, like and trust.  Live streaming video  is just that, LIVE !   There is no better way to get to know someone than to watch them day in and day out.    I like to tell people  They get to know you , imperfections and all.

This technology changes each and every day, sometimes it makes my head spin (in an exciting way of course).   One could only live stream from a mobile device, now you can use your laptop too.  If you would like to know more and/or keep on on the every changing trends.

I found this facebook Live training very valuable you might too, better yet, it’s free

Please follow me on facebook  if you would like tips and tricks on social media and live streaming.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s time to show some mutual kindness and respect

conflict-1445377_1280

During this Political season I have noticed many families and friendships have been tested like never before.   Never in my lifetime have I experienced such bashing, calling of names and actual fighting between people as this campaign.   Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all treat this subject like other differences we have?

Now I know many of you will be saying  “But I am Right in what I think”  and yes you may feel you are right.   However,  what if we thought about it like this…….

 

You like Pepsi and your friend likes coke, are you going to  disown them and or treat them differently? You go to Walmart and your sister shops only locally owned establishments, does this mean your right and she is wrong?   Do you stop talking to one and other? Do you call each other names?

This campaign has brought out the worst in many people, I am shocked at many I have respected and how they  shared their opinion (in the worst way possible).  Spewing venom at anyone who has a differing opinion.

We all have a right to our opinions my question is why do we feel it is our duty to  tell others theirs is wrong.   Let’s all  start sharing some mutual respect.

One can either jump in and treat others with respect or  we can perpetuate the hatred and disrespect .

Which side of the fence will you choose to be on?

Do you belong to this prestigious growing group?

Each and every day a new business is formed while many are closing down.  Cost of living is going up, as wages remain the same.  If that was not enough healthcare cost continue to soar.    course-1015601_1280

Many are taking on two or three jobs just to keep afloat, while others are starting home business of their own.  It has been reported that by the year 2020 80% of households will have at least on member  involved with a network business.   New networking opportunities are sprouting up quickly, there is something for everyone.

I have been involved with network marketing for almost 5 years and absolutely love it.

One might be shocked to know that  the fastest growing age group to be getting involved with this type of income generating opportunity  is between the ages of  45-64 and beyond.    It is not a surprise that this is also the fastest growing segment to be involved with Social Media.

For many this is their first time ever to be involved in something like this, however many are finding it to be a viable (and lucrative) way to earn money.

Why is this?  There are many factors

  1.  The need to make money
  2.  The desire to be involved with others
  3.   Some are  using this as a means to subsidise their retirement, as they may have come to the conclusion they are coming up short.
  4.   To be able to give back to others, this may be vehicle in which to  give back to others                                 There are as many reasons as there are people.

Some have lived with the assumption  Network marketing/Direct sales was a scam.   Many are realizing punching a timeclock for years may have been the real scam.

Have you considered  getting your feet wet?  If so there is a Plethora of opportunities waiting for you.   Be sure and do your research to ensure the company will be a good fit.

We are Never Prepared

police-lights

Over the past 17 years we have had our daily lives turned upside down on a much too regular basis.

On April 20, 1999 we were devastated at the death of 13 people at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado.  The first of many shootings that would devastate so many. Or I should say first one that hit us all at once.

In my area we have also experienced  tragedy.   In 2008 a mentally ill man went on a shooting spree and killed 6 people including a Sheriff Deputy.   This event was very devastating to so many, as living in a smaller community those killed were deeply engrained in the community.  I will never forget that day as I could not figure out why there was a steady stream of Police agency cars on the freeway with lights and sirens blaring.  Many families lives were forever changed.

On October 24th 2015 5 students were shot at Marysville High School, so very tragic and again devastated many lives.  Young lives were cut short, and many others were forever changed.  This brought the devastation to our small area once again.

Since then we have witnessed many events all across America, with heavy hearts we feel for those affected.   We say to ourselves, so thankful that type of thing does not happen in my  backyard.   

Last night it did happen, On a Friday night at 7:00 pm a shooter went in to a Local Mall and shot and killed 5 people.  At this time the community does not know the names of all  the victims.  We all  wait holding our breath praying for those families that have been devastated.   These are just a few of the very tragic events involving senseless shootings  happening  all too often.

When word goes out of such a tragedy we all start reaching out to our family and friends and make sure everyone is safe.  Our hearts break for those that did not hear from their loved ones, knowing their pain is unbearable, never to be the same again.

The question I leave you with…..  How do we prepare for  such events?

Life is all about a challenge

IMG_1581

Recently I Challenged myself to be bold, make changes and embrace all life has to offer.

First change was to tackle my weight issue, now down 17 lbs since May 7th.

Next I took a long look at my financial future and my goals that I wanted to achieve.  I had to take a very hard look at many areas here.   My husband and I  had a financial check up to see where we stood in our Retirement dreams.

Next I had to take a long look at My current career.  I asked myself the following questions

  1.  Are you happy?
  2.  Do you honestly believe you have a future with this company?
  3.  Do you have any Doubts, if so, what are they?
  4.  Are you making money or losing it?tiara diana

I was very sad when I came to a conclusion in order to Thrive and help others do the same I had to cut and run from  my current company.

Once I was ready I left –  The next morning I knew my head and heart were in sync for the first time is many many months.

This got me to  Thinking … There must be others that are ready to make some changes too.

This was the beginning of the formation of The Tiara Lady Happy Healthy Life Challenge.   Are you up for the Challenge to  Change your life?  This will encompass all areas of our lives from Finances, to health to general well being.   Challenges are more fun when you are in a group.
