A drawing of the brainstorming process
April 11th 2018

Are you looking for a solution to a specific problem? Do you need to kick your creative side into gear? Brainstorming is an effective tool for situations where creative thinking and problem solving are required. Brainstorming can be done by an individual, or in a group, and both options have their benefits. The point of brainstorming, whether in a group or alone, is to get as many ideas out of your head in as little time possible. In the initial stages of brainstorming, you are technically “brain dumping”.

A few events happened in my personal life recently that made me re-examine the sales process. The first event centered around my son leasing his first condominium. The saleswoman showed them the unit, got them to the point of signing, and then stopped communicating with them altogether as her part was done. A better sales approach would have been to take a moment and realize that these were young kids, nervous about their first official rental, and then walking them through the entire process right down to the key transfer.

No matter where you may be, anxiety has a funny way of sneaking up and surprising you. While you try  to keep yourself together when your spouse is deployed, the last thing you want to do is get anxious  about everyday tasks. There are numerous situations that could contribute to an unexpected anxiety flare-up, but the good news is that there are ways to quickly help relieve the stress of the situation.

I recently read an article that estimated consumers are presented with 3,000-4,000 pieces of marketing content per day. Per day. As you can imagine, with that influx of information, it is sometimes hard for content creators to make a connection with readers.

I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. I’m Kris, and I blog for Ed4Online. I’m a real person, with a family, pets, friends, and a job I love.

All this talk about work/life balance has got me thinking. Work is work – you know what your job is and, while daily tasks may vary, you clock in and (eventually) clock out. Life on the other hand, can be comprised of home, children, pets, and the associated errands, tasks, picking up, carpooling, maintenance, bill paying lawn care, and all of the wonderful stuff that goes along with it. There are always things vying for your attention. But what about finding time for yourself?

Time. We all have 168 hours a week. How we allocate that time is just as different and unique as we are as individuals. However, there are many of us who wish for “just a few more hours in the day” to get things done. Say, for example, you need to take courses to upskill, or to fulfill continuing education requirements. You may wonder, where am I going to find time to do that?
