Specialization Vs Generalization: "Should I Be Really Good at One Thing or Pretty Good at Many?"

Posted on

One of the most common questions beginning freelancers ask themselves is, “should I be really good at one thing or pretty good at many things?” The answer is — you guessed it — it depends. There are advantages and disadvantages to both specializing in one area and having more general knowledge in several areas. Here are the main pro/con arguments.

Advantages of Specialization

  1. Better pay — Assuming there is sufficient demand for a specific area of knowledge or skills, companies will gladly pay a premium for expert help. If you’re highly knowledgeable and skillful in a field, you’re an extremely valuable resource to those companies looking for your expertise.
  2. Less competition — Generally, the more focused your knowledge and skills are (i.e. the smaller your niche), the fewer competitors you will have. Because of the sheer number of niches, each one will have fewer freelancers than the more general supergroup containing it.
  3. Better for working with larger businesses — As opposed to small businesses, large companies are more likely to be able to afford many specialists in a variety areas; for example, a corporation may hire all of the following freelancers: a business consultant, accountant, web copywriter, print copywriter, graphic designer, frontend web developer, backend web developer, public relations master, SEO specialist, social media expert, legal advisor, and a marketing guru. If you prefer working with larger corporations, being more specialized will likely increase your value as a freelancer to large companies.

Disadvantages of Specialization

  1. Limited ability to adapt to economic changes — Demand and supply for specialized freelance services change. If demand decreases due to advances in technology or a change in trends, or supply increases due to others entering your field of specialty, you may lose business and revenue. For example, if you are the leading expert in Facebook marketing but people migrate to Google+, you may lose a significant amount of business and need to reinvent yourself as a Google+ marketing guru (you would lose money and time during this learning process).
  2. Smaller target market (fewer potential clients) — The more specialized you are, the smaller the marketplace will be for your particular specialty. For instance, if you specialize in producing short documentary films for non-profits, you will have fewer potential customers than if you’re a more adaptive freelance video producer who can produce a large variety of films.
  3. Boredom — You might get bored of doing the same — or a similar — thing over and over again. Hopefully you love your specialty (that’s why you chose it, right?), but that may not be the case 5 years down the road.

Advantages of Generalization

  1. Superior ability to adapt to economic changes — By not going too far in depth in any particular area, you can quickly adapt to trends in technology, business, and design such that you don’t lose business or revenue due to movements in supply and demand for particular freelance services (at least, not to the same degree as a specialist would). And since you’re not trying to learn everything in a particular field, you save learning time. After all, you probably don’t need to know everything (see #3 below).
  2. Better idea of the “big picture” — By having a diverse knowledge base, you will be able to more easily understand the larger, more abstract goals and concepts of a particular company and therefore be able to better suit that company’s needs. Understanding the context of the work you’re doing is crucial to going above and beyond the expectations of a client.
  3. Help most people most of the time — Most people aren’t looking for something extremely specific. Clients generally have a “fuzzy” idea of what they’re looking for (whether they admit this or not), and they’re probably looking to you for direction. This is usually the case because if a client knows exactly what she wants, she is more likely to do it herself than to pay someone else to do it for her (assuming she has the necessary skills).
  4. Better for working with small businesses — Most small businesses cannot afford to hire numerous specialty freelancers such as all those listed under item #3 under Advantages of Specialization. I’ve worked a lot with small businesses and usually what they’re looking for is someone who isn’t too specialized but rather someone who has a broad knowledge base, is very resourceful (i.e. can find answers/solutions quickly), and is a creative problem solver.

Disadvantages of Generalization

  1. Lack of focus — If you’re not particularly useful in an area, companies may not hire you because your services don’t provide enough value in achieving their objectives. If you only know a little more than your client knows, your client will probably look for someone more specialized or perhaps they will learn how to do the job themselves.
  2. More competition — There is a seemingly infinite number of “generalized” freelance writers, graphic designers, web developers, and so forth. The more “noise” there is in the marketplace, the more difficult it will be for you to stand out as a leader. Most novice and intermediate freelancers will take most any job they can get, so they end up becoming generalized freelancers, thereby adding to your competition.

My Personal Experience Being Generalized

I have personally acquired a more general knowledge base and skill set. This strategy has worked great for me (so far). I enjoy doing a variety of work; I rarely get bored of a particular task, so that is a huge advantage for me. I enjoy working with other small businesses; I am often a very valuable asset to them in terms of developing technological solutions for business operations and in terms of their company’s presence on the web and their internet marketing strategy.

If I find myself in a situation where I don’t know something (i.e. an area where I’m not specialized enough), I do research and find the answer or learn how to do something (simply Googling often does the job). If there’s a lot involved or there’s a big learning curve, I will hire someone else to perform a particular task (i.e. I subcontract / outsource the job) to save myself time and frustration.

Do What Makes Sense to You

Deciding whether to be specialized or generalized is often a personal preference. You should do what makes sense to you based on the pros and cons that most matter to you.

3 Components Of Writing

Posted on

If you keep these 3 components in mind while writing, you will have a more complete story. In general, you are looking at each component representing a section of the work. If you divided the work, whether article or story, into 4 equal sections, then the first component (BEGINNING) will equal about 1/4 of the work. The second component (MIDDLE) will represent 2/4 or 1/2 of the total work. The third component (END) will represent the last 1/4 of the work. Keep in mind, this is just an approximate division; every work will be different.

1 – BEGINNING:

  • The introduction to the work or story.
  • Depending on the topic of the work, this section may be short or long, but will be less than the middle.
  • In non-fiction, the beginning will serve as a “set up” to introduce the reader to the topic and give a brief outline or suggestion of what to expect in the rest of the work.
  • It may be used to tease the reader or to present a view into the characters, setting and plot.

2 – MIDDLE:

  • The exposition of characters, events, action, plot, research and main points of the work. This takes up the majority of the work.
  • In non-fiction, the middle will explain all theories, points, beliefs, facts, history etc. of the topic. This section will explore in great depth each of the points, usually sectioned by chapter (if a book).
  • This is where the writer will focus most of his or her attention. He will ask and answer questions, usually from either a teaching/education perspective or an informative perspective. Think of a math text book versus Grandma’s memoir.
  • In fiction, the middle will explore the plot and parallel subplots more deeply. This is where the main antagonist (the enemy-person, circumstance, disease etc), plus other secondary and more minor characters will be introduced and explored more fully. In crime/mystery and suspense, the killer’s identity will be foreshadowed in this section.
  • Foreshadowing, conflict, pacing, dialogue, red herrings and character development are key in this section. Conflict will play a vital role here. Numerous conflicts up the ‘danger’ element.
  • Just when everything seems to be working in favor of the main character (protagonist), something will happen to throw off the balance and rev up the action. This is true of all genres.

3 – END:

  • The conclusion of the work or story; the wrap up of events. Usually the shortest component.
  • In non-fiction, the end will wrap up the main points and beliefs of the writer.
  • This section will serve to emphasize why the writer chose this topic and what the main reason is for writing about it.
  • In fiction, the end will come to a climax where action and threat is of utmost importance.
  • A main conflict is revealed: such as the identity of a killer, a love interest, the truth of a mystery or a self-realization for the character.
  • Resolution occurs and someone loses, someone wins. Loose ends are tied up. The reader is left feeling that all is explained, or at least most (a twist at the end is popular with series.)

Format For Writing a Newspaper Article – The Most Important Elements in News Writing

Posted on

1. Effective, eye-catching headlines. You should always kick-start your articles with captivating headlines. Make them easy to understand, powerful, and enticing. Your readers must get a clear picture of your story by just reading your headlines. To save some space, ensure that you make each word count. It's better if you use 6 words or less.

2. Inverted pyramid technique. It's crucial that you write your articles using this technique. You see, saving the most essential information for last will not help you get your articles read. Remember, your audience has very short attention span and they usually do not read news articles in their heritage. So, give them all the most important details on your first or lead paragraph. Strive to answer all the questions that they might have.

3. Writing tone. Most news articles are written using formal tone and formal writing style specifically those that are published on broadsheets. But you can make your articles sound more laid back if they are for tabloids or if you're writing feature articles.

4. Images. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, as much as possible, use relevant images on your articles. Give your editors some choices by submitting at least 3-5 relevant pictures. Ensure that they can help you communicate the gist of your story to your readers.

5. Quotes. Interview those personalities and individuals who are involved or who are considered authorities in the story that you're covering. Present their statement or opinions on your articles. These will help you add more personal touch to your articles.

A New Earth – Author Eckhart Tolle & Oprah – Ways to Say No & Kinds of Energy

Posted on

During chapter 2 of the online course from his book A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle with Oprah answered a caller’s inquiry about knowing when to let go and when to be assertive.

Michelle called in from Philadelphia, PA to participate in the discussion asking: “I’m a little bit confused with chapter 2. I understand the quote, ‘If someone takes your shirt, let them have your coat as well.’ Where do you draw the line without getting walked all over? I don’t want to be an egotistical person, but at the same time I do not want to get taken advantage of. So I’m having a little bit of confusion with that.”

The passage Michelle was referring to came directly from the Bible as originally spoken by Jesus. “To him that hits you on one cheek offer the other also; and to him that takes away your shirt, give him your coat also.” (Luke 6:29)

Jesus sought to build a spiritual kingdom and build the inner man within humanity, whereby they would not hold tightly to and be encumbered by earthly things. Jesus said, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:26)

The rich young ruler came to Jesus and said: “Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?” (Matthew 19:16) Jesus sensing the flattery a bit, immediately had him redirect his attention toward God the Father and keeping the commandments to enter into life.

The young man said to Jesus, “All these things have I kept from my youth up: what do I yet lack?” (v. 20) Interestingly, the young man did not simply say he had kept the commandments, but went so far as to point out he had done so throughout his youth until now. This might signal a slight bit of self-righteousness and tendency to trying to earn salvation by good works. Note the young man asked what he must “do” to have eternal life.

Christ and the kingdom of God however are received and entered into by faith, not good works. Of course thereafter you get to do good works, but by no means must you do good works. Good works are to flow freely from the heart as you love God and your neighbor.

Jesus discerned the young man’s dilemma and issue, after which Jesus without hesitation cut to the chase and advised him. “If you will be perfect, go and sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow Me” (Matthew 19:21).

He had great possessions, but more importantly his response revealed the condition of his heart. The reply of the young man says it all. “But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.” (v. 22)

This showed that he was possessed by his possessions, or that his possessions owned him. Jesus beholding the young man walk away said, “How hard it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven” (v. 23).

Note Jesus did not say it was impossible, just more difficult and hard. Because when you have this world’s material goods in your possession, you become increasingly self-sufficient. The tendency therefore is to pull away from God and become a god unto yourself.

Yet Joseph of Arimathea was a rich disciple who wholeheartedly followed Jesus (Matthew 27:57), proving that it can successfully be done. Zacchaeus who was chief among the publicans was also rich. Zacchaeus so hungered for Christ that he climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Jesus when He passed by. Believing wholeheartedly in Christ the Lord, Zacchaeus immediately repented, made restitution, and experienced a glorious salvation in his house (see Luke 19:2-9).

Eckhart when answering Michelle’s question replied, “All it says is sometimes letting go, there’s more power in letting go than in clinging or hanging on to something. So there are situations when you actually become empowered when you let go, rather than when you cling. It does not mean that people walk all over you. In fact there are situations when you have to say no very clearly as to a situation or to a person, but even that ‘no’ can be of two different kinds.”

Tolle continued, “Usually the no is very negative. When you say ‘no’ to a person; a person says, ‘I’ll give you a ride home.’ But you see the person is drunk. Of course you wouldn’t say yes just to be pleasant. You say no.”

“Now do you say no with negative energy and in a state of resistance or do you say not that is positive? It simply means a clear and straight forward, ‘No, I won’t do that.'”

“This is very different from the resistant no. I call that the no that is not negative – a high quality no.”

Oprah added some insight: “It’s also looking at the reason, why you would cling to the shirt. …If the reason why you’re holding to the shirt causes you to think the shirt is going to give you more value or you’re operating from your ego when you’re holding on to it. So you’re saying …surrender whatever needs to be surrendered.”

Oprah is correct in seeking to assess the motivation of the heart and the “reason” for clinging on to things. This is precisely why Jesus told the rich young ruler to sell his possessions and give to the poor, because Jesus sensed the young man’s unhealthy attachment and identification with his possessions.

Truly the Word of God is likened unto a two-edged sword that cuts, divides, and discerns the thoughts and intentions of the heart (see Hebrews 4:12). Yet we know that it is very possible to be both rich and spiritual, because all of Jesus’ apostles were previously successful businessmen. Upon becoming Christ’s disciples and traveling with him, they continued to support themselves and their families.

Therefore when Jesus said, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” (Mark 10:25). Jesus’ disciples immediately were astonished beyond measure. Why so? Because they knew their own economic standing and were concerned with their own spiritual well being.

The disciples fearing for their own salvation said among themselves, “Who then can be saved?” (Mark 10:26) Jesus answered them saying, “With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible” (Mark 10:27).

This comment and reply from Jesus is to say that men can buy nearly everything, but not eternal salvation. This alone therefore comes from God, which if you keep your heart tender and sensitive to the Spirit of the Lord you can have. The problem with things is that they have a tendency to encumber one’s heart and thereby like weeds “choke out the Word of God’ making it unfruitful in you.

“The cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke God’s Word, making it unfruitful in you” (see Mark 4:19).

Jesus being fully committed to earthly prosperity as well as heavenly riches and glory expounded saying, “There is no man that has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My sake, and the gospel’s, but he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brothers, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life” (Mark 10:29-30).

Interestingly, Jesus said along with the blessings that come when you seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matthew 6:31), along with them you shall be persecuted. And the majority of persecution comes from the jealous religious crowd who want what you’ve got, but haven’t paid the price that you’ve sacrificially and experientially paid.

Many wanted (and still want and pursue) the revelation and divine insight of the apostle Paul. Yet very few are willing to endure the hardships, abuse, persecution, and difficulties that Paul endured to get such inward revelation.

In answer to Michelle’s question, no we should not let ourselves be doormats for people to use and abuse. When the Pharisees and scribes sought to entangle Jesus in His speech, He wisely answered them and withdrew Himself from among them. Moreover when appropriate, Christ boldly confronted them to address their own hypocrisy.

We cannot correct what we refuse to confront. Often what you tolerate will continue to dominate.

Therefore we must bring order to our lives, homes, and interactions professionally and socially; lest we be bulldozed over by cunning people in the business world and society.

God gave you heart and backbone, preserve and use them both when appropriate. As you do you shall guard and protect the positive life force energy flowing in and through you.

The Innovative Avant-Garde Short Story

Posted on

Most writers follow the set conventions and style of writing set by the former writers, but some break through such set conventions in order to bring innovation. The innovative short story is sometimes termed as avant-garde, experimental, or unconventional fiction. In this article, you will learn about this “innovative” aspect of story and its development.

Innovative stories, unlike mainstream short fiction, do not rely upon conventional character, plots, conflicts, or other elements. They are somewhat anti-story normally lacking realism, a focused subject, and plot. Rather such stories explore events through randomness, chaos, fragments, and arbitrariness. One of the main aspects of such innovative stories is that they are often unpredictable and that is why such stories generate the effects of wonder and awe.

You can consider the modern short story as an innovation in fiction. Since the 19th century, some writers have extended the boundary line of the form. Gogol merged dream and reality in his The Overcoat (1842) which is a tale about an unimportant clerk who dies of heartbreak after his new overcoat is stolen but later on returns as a ghost to find justice. In other words, the writers of today take liberty in experimenting with the form.

The stories of Franz Kafka beautifully mesh the fantastic with the realistic. And as a result, the adjective “Kafkaesque” is created to describe his stories. In the Penal Colony (1919) is one of the finest of Kafka’s innovative stories dealing with imprisonment and torment. This sort of fusion is often innovative in nature that succeeds in entertaining the readers.

Virginia Woolf makes use of the omniscient point of view in the Kew Gardens (1919). In this story, plants, insects, wind, noise, and light play as important part as human beings.

After World War II, unconventional short fiction became more popular and common. American writer Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. in his Welcome to the Monkey House (1968) included a range of stories that make satirical use of the science fiction genre. Harrison Bergeron is such story that starts with, “The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal.”

Tommaso Landolfi, an Italian author, uses the biographical form in Gogol’s Wife (1954) for satirizing men’s misuse of women. French writer Anais Nin’s dream story Ragtime (1944) is about Surrealism, which tries to represent the subconscious.

The more you read and study the modern short stories, the more you’ll find that how innovation has taken place with the course of the time.

What Does Software Engineering Involve?

Posted on

The first point that has to be made about software engineering has to do with its scope of activities. Software engineering is the management of the entire process of development of computer systems to solve problems.

As software systems have grown more sophisticated and complex, software developers have sought new methods for their development. Software engineering is a response to that need. Software engineering is still rapidly changing and maturing.

Typically, when someone is told to write a program, someone else has told him or her what the program is to do and why; the programmer is concerned only with how to write it. As software engineers, however, we will be the ones concerned with the what and why. Software engineering includes the whole range of activities having to do with problem solving – from helping the client define the problem or opportunity, to evaluating the client’s satisfaction with the solution.

Developing a software system may require writing a whole collection of programs to tell machines what to do, writing procedures to tell people what to do, and providing training so that people understand how to do it. We may need to convert data from an old system so it can be run by a new system, hire people and acquire machines to run the programs, and obtain space in which the machines and people can do their work. What we are building is a system of many parts working together. Such an endeavor requires patience and flexibility. We will have to fix the system when it does not do what we expected, or the client may ask us to change the system because he or she wants it do something else not previously intended.

Programming may be no more than 20 per cent of the total scope of software engineering, and the fraction of effort involved with programming can be expected to drop as improved methods are used for developing software systems. As time goes on, more of our effort will go into managing the overall process and less into programming.

The Truth About Permanent Cosmetic Makeup Eyeliner, Lip Liner, and Eyebrow Tattoos

Posted on

I’ve had cosmetic makeup procedures done in many parts of the world at many clinics and for many different reasons. All have been successful and I am delighted with the results; the ease of applying less makeup, waking up to beautiful brows and perfect eyeliner and softly colored lips. I also love going for a swim and coming out looking like I never got my face wet, at least there’s no runny eyebrow pencil, no black smudges of liner under my eyes and no dull. lifeless lips. That’s my experience, so naturally I’ve been recommending permanent makeup for a long time. But the truth is that tattooing any part of your face is a serious matter, and it’s definitely NOT for everyone!

My adventure with permanent makeup began in Asia, therefore I had some of the best cosmeticians attend me at a clinic in Hong Kong. Later in Taipei, I had my eyeliner retouched a few months before I was married, so my honeymoon on secluded beaches of Macau was free of makeup worries. However, throughout my travels as a cultural journalist, during almost 10 years in Asia, I also saw numerous ladies whose cosmetic tattoo eyebrows were a total disaster, mostly because the shape and the arch of the brow was overly pronounced, or because the tattoo had been done on an area above the natural brow, or so unnatural looking due to having the brow line tattooed in a solid inky stain on the skin and not a natural feathery application within some existing hair.

This seemed to have been the result of women getting eyebrow tattoos after having totally removed their natural brow hair, either through electrolysis or some other hair removal system. Most of these “not very flattering” eyebrow results were on women who lived in smaller villages and isolated regions where newer tattooing techniques had not yet began to be applied, and where black Chinese ink that was used to create dragons on the shoulders and backs of men was also used on lady’s brows. But the newest methods, which are used in international clinics, allow for a vast choice of pigments, including blending colors to get very natural shades that match even fair hair colors.

But who should get cosmetic tattoos and who shouldn’t? The truth is that if a lady has no brows due to an illness that has contributed to hair loss, a tattoo is an excellent solution, especially if the feathering techniques is used. What this means is that tiny strokes of pigment are applied to the brow region to look like hair, not a solid line. Women who have very sparse brow hair should also consider adding a bit of dimension with this same technique, and in this case, the technician will follow the natural brow. Women who should not consider these procedures are those who have poor natural healing abilities, who bleed profusely, who scar easily or have extremely sensitive skin.

If you’re unsure about getting eyebrows tattooed, since this procedure alters the look of the eye in a very noticeable way, then start with something smaller like a bit of eyeliner. Have your technician tattoo a fine outline in the lash line and see how your skin reacts to the pigment. If all is well, go ahead with the brows.

Content Writing – Tonality Matters

Posted on

How often do you consider tonality being one of the most vital aspects of your writing? Perhaps, you may have not paid attention to this, the fact is, the voice of your writing is as much vital as making it informative for your readers.

I have my own personal experience that most written contents fail to entertain readers because they do not sound friendly to readers.

When you write contents, you must be careful to the tonality. Whether you are a novice or an experienced content writer, things do matter when the tonality of your writing is not friendly. You may have noticed that most bloggers do not have huge readerships as their blogs sound esoteric and unfriendly.

The tonality of your written contents (if you write professionally) should be professional, to the point and pleasing. Do not write with impression that only moderately literate readers read articles on the web. In fact, there are plenty of well-read readers who read and assess your writing ability. They also analyse the voice of your written contents.

Informative and sweet-toned writing accords to the discretion of your potential readers.

If you include foul words in your writing, you should better abnegate this. This is because of the reason that not all the readers, especially the ones hungry for quality reading, welcome such piece of writing. You may have seen many written contents stuffed with these types of words. Did you like them?

Why don’t you imagine yourself to be in the place of your potential readers you write for? That will help you understand the voice of your own written words. That would also help you make necessary rectification to the contents, if they sound senseless and unfriendly.

You are also advised to read out your finished article. This is very useful as it will help you understand the tonality of the article.

How to ensure that the tonality of written contents is friendly or nasty?

Proofreading is an essential tool to ensure the nature of tonality of your written contents. It can help you detect tonality as well as grammatical inaccuracy (if any) of your written contents.

Words (written or spoken) always say something. A writer must be familiar with contextualizing sentences that sound meaningful and friendly. If they sound vulgar or irrelevant, you will make a wrong impression for your readers as a writer. You will probably demean your credibility as a writer for your potential clients as well.

Therefore, do not underestimate the value of tonality while writing. This is very important. Good tonality means, you are respecting your readers while sharing your ideas with them.

How to Write a Sales Advertisement For Your ATV Or Dirt Bike

Posted on

Writing an effective sales advertisement for your ATV or dirt bike can mean the difference between selling your vehicle or not. This article discusses some things you can do to increase your success at selling your vehicle.

Pointers for Writing an Ad

Price Considerations

Give Basic Information

Be Honest, and Straightforward

Pointers for Writing an Ad: Think about it for a second, the point of writing a sales advertisement is to sell your ATV or dirt bike, quickly and at a good price. It is not rocket science, and can be done effective by anyone. An effective sales advertisement should include the sale price, some basic information about the vehicle, and your contact information. Including too little or too much information can avert interested buyers, reduce your chances of selling your used vehicle, and waste everybody’s time.

An effective sales ad for your ATV or dirt bike should include all the basic information a buyer will need to make an initial assessment of your vehicle.

Price Considerations: How to price your vehicle for sale can be difficult, but if you do your homework you should be able to price it correctly. Factors that can affect price are; age, condition, features, and accessories. One of the mistakes many make when listing the price of a used vehicle is they list it too low. Whatever price you decide on, you should add a couple hundred dollars to the price so you give yourself some room to negotiate. This is a buffer that may be the difference between selling the vehicle or not.

A realistic price with a buffer for negotiation is the best method for selling your ATV or dirt bike quickly.

Give Basic Information: When putting your ad together it is vital that you include the make and model of the vehicle so prospective buyers can determine if the vehicle is right for them. Also you will want to include any special features the vehicle may have to make it more attractive to buyers. If offering any accessories which will be included in the purchase price, you will want to list them in the ad too. Finally you will want to list your contact information. It is recommended to only include your phone, or you may find people showing up unexpectedly to see the vehicle.

Take a look at other ATV or dirt bike sales advertisements, and model your ad after one that appeals to you.

Be Honest, and Straightforward: This section is where a lot of sellers may get into trouble when designing their sales ad. Many tend to hype the ad and the vehicle for sale, far beyond the condition, and capability of the vehicle. It is important that you be as honest and straightforward as you can be. If the vehicle has challenges, state them. If it will need certain repairs, let the prospective buyer know this. It is better to be upfront regarding any factors of the sale, rather then wasting time, or having to deal with them later.

Being honest and straightforward with your ad and with buyers can save a lot of headache later on after the sale has been made.

Take Advantage of Opportunities to Become Successful

Posted on

Do you know how to take advantage of opportunities that come your way?

Do you even recognize all of the wonderful opportunities that are available to you right now, if you just open the door?

Or, do you tend to think you could be successful "if only______" (fill in the blank with whatever you THINK you are waiting for)?

Highly successful people tend to take advantage of whatever opportunities come their way. In fact, many of these people tend to believe that success is just "an opportunity waiting to happen." They EXPECT wonderful opportunities to come to them. Which means they are always on the lookout for some pleasant potential, and usually they are not disappointed.

They open the door to realize, "the sky is the limit." You know many people like this. They're the ones who "make lemonade" when presented with a bag of lemons because they have recognized the lemons for their potential – they represent an opportunity for something better. Successful people do not bemoan what they do not have.

They use what they DO have to realize their potential, which means they often become more and more successful as time goes on. Today, make a list of all the skills, resources, and opportunities you DO have. Try to see things in a new way so that you are not missing the opportunities that are right there before you. Then decide how you will use these things to your advantage.

Opportunity knocks every day.

But it's up to you to open the door.

Try it!
