I came across this question on articleserver.net & after reading the question I thought to myself, you know what, I have the same exact question! "I am a real estate agent and I am not sure how LinkedIn can help me since it is a business to business platform and I am targeting consumers and homeowners. Should I be focusing just on Facebook which is more consumer oriented? And, if I should be on LinkedIn, how can I best utilize it to help me obtain more business and clients?" So I thought I would do some research and see how I could answer that question not only for myself but for everyone else who may be confused with LinkedIn. Media Professionals - A recent study showed that 92% of all journalists are on LinkedIn which is more than any other social networking site. This means that you...

    Young Brad from the country applied for a salesman's job at a city Department store. It was one of those massive stores that sells just about everything.   The boss asked him, "Have you ever worked in sales before?" "Yes, I was a salesman in my home town," said Brad. The boss liked him instantly and said, "I'll give you a trial day here at the store, start tomorrow, and I'll come and see you after closing time to see how you went."   When the boss met up with young Brad the next day at closing time, he saw him shaking hands with a beaming customer. After they parted, the boss walked over and asked, "Well, that looked good! How many sales did you make today?" "That was the only one," said the young salesman. "Only one!?!" blurted the boss. "Most of my staff make 20 or 30 sales a day....

Every blade of grass is a study; and to produce two, where there was but one, is both a profit and a pleasure. ~ Abraham Lincoln He was speaking about agriculture, but it made me think about how people manage their properties, manage their money, and their business.  More than anything, Lincoln wanted every American to have the chance to improve himself and get ahead in life. For this, education and practical knowledge were critical. He believed in productivity and conservation. Some Environmentalists  and Agriculturists today, echo the economic and social argument of Lincoln's days.   I hope you have a great President’s Day!

  I got this story passed along to me via email and it made me LOL so I thought I would share it with you! Happy Friday!   An old German shepherd starts chasing rabbits and before long, discovers that he's lost.   Wandering about, he notices a panther heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch. The old German Shepherd thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep do do now!"   Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat.   Just as the panther is about to leap, the old German Shepherd exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious panther! I wonder, if there are any more around here?"   Hearing this, the young panther halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks ...

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression, by remaining silent. However, it is our responsibility to make sure that the impression we give, is appropriately understood. This is a big responsibility that we must always do and achieve. We all shine on, like the moon, and the stars, and the sun. ~ John Lennon

It is celebrated in countries around the world, mostly in the West, although it remains a working day in all of them. The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flou...
