Many people have hobbies they can legitimately turn into a business but don’t know how or where to start. First off, you’ve got to look at your hobby. What is it? Is it marketable? Is it desirable to others? When we talk about others, we are talking about the general public. You need to find out how other people feel about your product or service. Get genuine, honest feedback. Too often people think they’ve got something great and they think, “Why wouldn’t people want this?” To an extent, it’s great to think positively and be excited about your product but the reality is everyone’s not going to feel the same way.
Poor communicators create impossible workplace environments. They are often at the root of the problems happening in the workplace, simply because they do not know how to communicate. According to a study, Forty-four percent of respondents said such issues delay or derail projects, while nearly a third said they cause low morale. A quarter attributed poor communication to missed performance goals, and 18% said a failure to communicate caused lost sales, sometimes totaling well into the six figures. So, how do we handle them?

Body positivity has been a big subject lately and really topped off last year with artists like Lizzo, models like Ashley Graham and Toccara, who literally embody (pun intended) body positivity. Body positivity starts in the mind. How you see yourself matters! If you don’t have a healthy outlook for yourself, it doesn’t matter what size you are. If you don’t love, value, and appreciate yourself; nothing anybody says about you will change your outlook for the better. Watch this and share your thoughts with me below.
There was A LOT of controversy around Fantasia's interview and comments about the woman’s role in relationships. Men and women alike jumped on a bandwagon and had LOTS of things to say, especially the men. What got me was everybody focused on what Fantasia said about submission (the men loved that part) but totally MISSED what her husband had to say. Her first interview was on the Breakfast Club and she talked about the woman being the neck and the man not being able to move his head without the woman, so the two are indeed equal and work together. She's. Not. Wrong. Catch my talk with Deborah Warren below.
