3 ways no can make you richLet’s be bluntly honest here…

Nobody likes rejection.

No one likes being told ‘no’.

I Want to Start a Small Business But Have No MoneyHere’s one I get…just about everyday…’I Want to Start a Small Business But Have No Money.’

*sigh* … because of this, I might have to do a weekly post and video on this very subject.

Facebook Page Reach Decline: The Blessing in DisguiseWe’ve all heard moans, groans…and the whining and the bitching: ‘The Facebook Page Reach Decline has killed my page’!

It’s true. The reach on your Facebook Page has slowly declined to the point where it’s almost zero. In fact, I’ve heard numbers that suggest that Facebook’s average organic reach in 2017 is about 1% for pages on the social behemoth.

That means of all the people who ‘Liked’ your page, only 1 percent actually see your posts.

‘This is an injustice!!’ I hear you bark. ‘You’re making me pay to reach MY people’!Continue reading
