5 simple ways to handle stress.

Stress : we all know what it is and we all have it sometimes. It can be a helpful friend or an angry enemy. Luckily with these 5 simple tips you will hopefully overcome this unhealthy addiction.

Step 1 : control you addiction .

Yup ,I said addiction , stress is an addictive situation and if you are experiencing a lot of stress for a long period of time , chances are that you are addicted to it.

Stress is like an adrenaline rush , your body needs  to cope with difficult situations ,but if you open the door and let it into your life ,you will probably get addicted and unfortunately you won’t be able to get through the day without it.

So the best way to overcome this addiction is to never think about it.

Whenever you feel stressed , think of something else. I know it’s hard but the only thing that makes it hard is your addiction.

Step 2 : recognize your enemy .

Often we feel stressed and we don’t know why . So it is very important to recognize the reason you are stressed. Try to follow your way back to the moment your adrenaline rush started , what where you thinking at this specific moment ? This way you can identify the reason behind the stress and find a solution.

Step 3 : face your problems .

This is the most important step of the process . Often we have the tendency to look away from out problems but that’s the biggest mistake we can make . Imagine you are in a big rock 15 meters high above the sea and you have to jump into the sea . Would your rather dive with your back? Or with your face?

It might be scarier to jump with your face, but if you jump with your back it will hurt a lot more.

Step 4 : do what you love .

From all the people I ever spoke with , there are few that actually doing what they love to do . The truth is that we came to earth as humans , all different from each other and all with different talents . We all have a limited amount of time to live and trust me when you get 80 years old and you look at the past, your life will seem minutes long. So find your passion, and do it for a living.

Step 5 : find some free time .

I know, you have lots do and many deadlines to catch , but finding free time is crucial for your stress level . Try to set boundaries between the times you work and the times you relax. Don’t think about work on your free time . Try to watch a movie , discuss with someone about something that is not work related or even better start a hobby .

Every healthy business have to satisfy their clients. But a new business is rarely healthy at the beginning . You don’t just have to “satisfy” them . You have to be the most helpful person they’ve seen all day. This is the only way to make sure that they are going to come back and spread the word to their friends.

5 ways to Grow your business.

5 ways to Grow your business.

Every person with a healthy business knows that success don’t come easy.

If you just starting out your business or you just want to attract more customers , this is a guide that will help you grow and expand your business by following this simple steps.

Step 1 : Social networks

Yes we all heard that social networks can help a business grow, and we all tried to promote our business through various social networking websites , but did we do it right? Social networks can be a little tricky especially if you don’t know how to use them as a marketing tool. Some ground rules you need to follow is :

  • post content often but not too often ( avg 3-5 posts a day)

  • 2 out of 5 posts should be about your business products the rest should be entertaining facts and photos-videos that gives you traffic.

  • Write a good description . No one is going to see what you just uploaded if he doesn’t think that something good is going on here. Take yourself as an example , how many times have you stop to look at a post only because it had an interesting and long description.

  • Contests, the best motive for people to like your Facebook page , share your posts , follow you on twitter etc , is free stuff . Everyone likes them and everyone is willing to like – share your posts if they have the chance to win the awesome price you are giving.

Step 2 : Awesome website

Having an awesome website isn’t always easy ,especially if you don’t have the time or the money to pay for it . The truth is that a strong online presence starts with an awesome website. Let me give you an example. Say you are on a nice trip to Italy and your friend told you about this nice restaurant , so you go online to check it out. If the first thing you saw was an awful website with bad graphics and bad taste , how would you trust them to cook your food?

After all building an awesome website this days isn’t that hard. You can pay a web designer to build your website in a very low price starting at 300$ , or you can build your own in no time using tools like : wordpress , joomla etc.

Step 3 : Build good relationships

As obvious as it may sounds , building healthy and strong relationships will help you expand in no time. Do you remember the time when you went to the grocery store and the clerk was so nice and happy ,you never thought of buying grocery again anywhere else? This is how you want your clients to feel . Be happy , be focused on what the client need , be helpful and you will have regular customers in no time.

Step 4 : Run a campaign

Probably one of the best ways to advertise your business is to Run a campaign .

The best way to attract customers and make sure they stay yours is to focus your campaign in the same city your business is. For example if you live in a city with 50.000 people and you :

  • Run a social network campaign through Facebook.

  • Create a Youtube commercial video.

  • Create infographics and post them on pinterest.

  • Create fliers and posters and scatter them around the city.

  • Create awesome business cards and give them to your friends so they can pass them to others.

  • Advertise your website through Google adwords.

  • Remember that your target groups should be in the same city as your business.

If you do all those things people will come to you . Then all you have to do is Step 3

and you will have regular customers in no time.

Step 5 : Be unique

Obviously the best way to stand out from the crowd is to be unique. Try to be creative and don’t be afraid of your ideas. If I had a dollar for every mistake I make, now I would be a millionaire. Of course you’ll make mistakes and you will fail again and again , but in the end you will have so much experience that it will be impossible not to succeed. Think of yourself as a baby who is trying to walk , first you will fall many times but as you grow up it becomes so easy that you don’t even think about it .The same thing applies to your ideas. First you will fail and then it will become second nature. So don’t be afraid , wear your “thinking hat” and go explore the world of creative ideas.
