Making Your Intuition Work for You


Each of us has an internal guidance system, our intuition. It can come to us in many ways: gut feelings, dreams, a sense of knowing, energetic guidance, images, voices, signs from our environment, and notions from other people. By observing this great source of information you will strengthen your ability to make better choices in your personal and business life.
Plenty of us use our intuition regularly without recognizing it as that. You might have a knowing or a hunch about something that is going to happen in your life. A knowing might be that you think about talking with your mother on the phone and she calls. Similarly, a hunch would be to take a different route on the way home and find out that you bypassed a huge accident on your regular route. There are situations that guide you to important people in your life. You’re compelled to attend a party where you meet your life partner. You sit near someone at a meeting that has similar interests as you, and together you begin envisioning a new business together.
Intuition is something we are all born with, but we have not all been encouraged to use this internal guidance system. The good news is that today intuition is recognized as an empowering tool that is essential for guiding us to live our purpose.
A strong intuition helps you make smart decisions. Powerful and successful leaders and entrepreneurs are known to use their intuition in business and in their personal life. Through education and practice you can strengthen your intuition.

Here are two simple ways to practice using your intuition:
1. When the phone rings, sense who is calling. Use that gut feeling as you ask yourself “Who’s calling?”
2. Intend that you will easily find a parking spot and let your intuition guide you to it. Tap into the energy of your awareness as you drive.

Influencer Marketing: Sure, It’s Effective, But At What Price?

“So I got the opportunity to check out the demo of this game ...” said Felix Kjellberg, a.k.a. YouTube star PewDiePie, in a 2014 video.
But it turned out that Kjellberg, who has about 48 million YouTube subscribers, was being a bit disingenuous. Actually, Warner Bros. was paying him and others tens of thousands of dollars to talk up “Shadow of Mordor,” a then-new video game.
Two years later, the Federal Trade Commission cracked down on Warner Bros., and Kjellberg offered his defense. His YouTube page had disclosed that the video was “sponsored by Warner Bros.” Kjellberg pointed out that he wasn’t required to disclose the payment but opted to do it anyway. “Yes, I could have disclosed it better,” he said. “I could have put it above the fold ...”
As scandals go, this was a small affair. Yet as more and more brands opt for influencer marketing and the Federal Trade Commission has begun monitoring the practice, such gaffes have become more common.
That’s, perhaps, a reflection of influencer m…

The New Era of Innovation & Disruption

The pace of digital innovation and technology disruption is set on warp speed. We live in an era where technology is evolving faster than businesses can adapt. A disruptive technology is defined as, one that displaces an established technology and shakes up the 
industry or a ground-breaking product that creates a completely new industry.

"The pace of technology disruption and change right now is the absolute  slowest it will be for the rest of your life" 
We are living in an extraordinary time. During the Digital Era of the past 30 years, every industry has become social, mobile, and global. Every industry is becoming smart and connected, and companies that do not adapt are rapidly falling behind.
We have yet to realize just how rapid and profound the current digital revolution is. The scale and impact of the implications for consumers and businesses is both exhilarating and daunting. Disruptive technologies and new business models are creating change and transforming the econom…

Why User Generated Content Will Win the Content Battle in Every Industry

Why User Generated Content Will Win the Content Battle in Every IndustryFacebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Tripadvisor, Quora, Foursquare, Reddit, Yelp, Pinterest, Wikipedia, and Zomato are some of the most resonating consumer internet brands in the current internet landscape. 
And they have a common thread binding them all: a. They’re all content platforms. b. Users can consume the content for free. c. There are NO “content writers” on these companies’ payrolls.
The Genesis User Generated Content (UGC) is not a new phenomenon by any stretch. Any platform where the users of the platform are also the content creators is essentially a UGC platform. In fact, the terminology web 2.0 was coined for portals leveraging UGC. Blogging, which was a way for the erstwhile reader to express his or her thoughts, was one of the first forms of UGC.
Even though the term web 2.0 was coined in 2004, one of the pioneers of UGC, Tripadvisor, had already started creating a portal which offered reviews of places, citi…
