It’s normal to have fluctuations in your productivity. Some days you’ll rip through that to-do list like a hot knife through butter and some days even the turtles are moving faster than you.

Forex Trading – An Interesting Way to Make Money

My goal with this blog is to turn it into a place where people can get information about different ways to make money online or in the real world. The way we make a living is changing, but too few people realize that. If you want to survive, you must stop thinking of yourself as an employee and start considering yourself to be an independent contractor. You can either sell your skills and time to a company (an employer) or use them to cobble together sources of income to fund the life you want to live.

In this article, I’m going to talk a little bit about making money with investments, and with forex trading in particular. Admittedly, I’m not very good with investing, so this article will only get you started. You are better off having someone with a good amount of experience in this field mentor you in how to make money with forex trading.

The Basics of Making Money with Advertising

One of the most popular shows on television is Mad Men which chronicles the drama between Don Draper and friends as they try to make money with advertising between marital infidelities and interpersonal conflicts. It’s not my kind of show. I prefer science fiction (Warehouse 13) and crime dramas (The Closer), so I’ve only watched it maybe twice. But I started thinking the other day about the show’s setting, a 1960’s ad agency, and how many people are trying to make money online in this competitive field.

There are a two ways to make money with Internet advertising: as the creator of advertising campaigns (which is a service) or by selling ad space (which is a product). In this blog post, I will be talking about the latter because it’s the income opportunity I see most people struggling with.

It seems simple enough to make money with website advertising, at least in theory. You create a website, blog, or online newsletter and then find people or companies willing to pay to advertise on it. Like so many things in life, however, the application of the idea is much more complex. If you are currently trying to earn a paycheck this way or are thinking about it, here are the basics of generating an income selling Internet advertising.

How to Get More Facebook Likes for Your Fan Page

Facebook Likes is Where the Money Is

Facebook offers numerous opportunities to market to their 600 million members. However, the first step is to get on their radar. If you have created a Facebook fan page then you are ahead of the curve but not quite around the bend yet. To take full advantage of the marketing opportunities on Facebook, you need to get Facebook Likes for your page.

A Facebook Like is pretty much the same as getting friend requests on the site. The status updates you post on your fan page show up in the news stream of the people who liked your page. Additionally, you can send mass messages to the entire group. So if you own a retail store and you are having a sale, you can let everyone know about it in one email. Plus, the more people who like your Facebook fan page the farther your sales message goes when those people share your content.

Okay you are, but it really is an effective way to get people on your page. You could offer coupons, free samples, or provide access to exclusive content.

Top Interview Questions Out There

This was a post provided by Elizabeth C. You can find more of her work on her fantastic job resource site called MyJobApps.com. Research well over 1,500 company profiles, salaries and even find jobs in your local area.

The hardest part of snagging a job is getting through a job interview. If you fail the interview or the interviewer doesn’t like what he or she is hearing, you can kiss the job goodbye. There is no escaping the interview process if you want to get a job. I went ahead and researched some of the top job interview questions out there, and this is the list that I came up with.

What is your greatest strength? The interviewer wants to know what your greatest strengths are and how they can help the company succeed. Be sure to answer this question honestly, and let them know what you can truly do for them.

What is your weakness? This is kind of a tricky question. Most people tell you take your weakness and turn it into a positive. For example, let’s say that you’re late with projects sometimes. Instead of saying that, you could say that you work too hard sometimes and lose track of time.
