Social Media for Business

We all know what social media is all about. Almost all people of all ages are using this social media. We use it to find people we love, to find long lost relatives, to find a friend, to be noticed. Some companies even use this to promote their products or sites.

What I want though is a social media application that is purely for business. We all know that most social media are mostly focused on getting to know people, some even are just a waste of time or out of this world. But wouldn't you like a social media where you can meet people that can help you on your business? A place where you can get pieces of advice from people who are really good at business? I do!! If ever there would be such an application it would be a heaven sent for business people. You could just imagine a social media that has an enterprise collaboration software solutions that includes most of what businesses use nowadays like accounting, ERP, CPM and more. An application that focuses on helping you on your business because it helps you connect to fellow employees, sharing of knowledge and ideas with business people, no nonsense feeds here guys only business activity feeds. I am just scratching parts of what this application can really do. I know people would need a whole lot of convincing for them to use this kind of application but businesses would really appreciate this. In the world of business, information is vital, without it you're gonna be a step behind your competitor. Ever dreamed of such a thing to happen?

The Right Way to Complain for Consumers

There's a right way to do it - no hissy fits needed.

  1. Identify the problem. give all of the pertinent details(i.e dates, name of the person you're complaining about, branch location). Say your suggested solution and expected remedy as well. Do you want a refund, a repair, or a replacement.
  2. Gather documents. Keep the official receipts, warranty certificates, contracts, repair orders, proofs of purchase, and canceled checks to back up your complaint. Photos can also help you state your case.
  3. Go back to where you made the purchase or availed the service. Talk to the personnel involved and his supervisor or manager calmly. The problem is usually solved after a peaceful discussion.
  4. Write a formal letter. If you're still not satisfied, fill up the consumer complaint form online at, and then get ready for a mediation conference. A mediator from the consumer protection agency concerned, such as Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), or Department of Health (DOH) and the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), will help the company and the consumer arrive at a solution.

Tips in Improving your Relationships through Passive Barriers

I have posted an article about using passive barriers in you personal finance. A passive barrier is something that makes the normal activity more difficult. In this article we use passive barriers to help in improving our relationships.

  • Don't keep the TV remote near you when watching TV. If you are prone to channel surfing when you get home instead of bonding with your family or doing something more productive, simply take the remote away from the TV and keep it in a less accessible place.
  • Do not keep your cell phone in your pocket. If your friends and family can hardly talk to you because you're always checking your phone, decide not to carry your phone everywhere. Focus on the people who are presently with you and the task at hand.

Save Money by Using Passive Barriers in your Personal Finance

A passive barrier is something that makes the normal activity more difficult. You can use passive barriers in your personal finance to prevent yourself from spending money.

  • Not having your credit cards in your wallet. If you are prone to impulse buying through your credit card, take those cards out of your wallet and leave them at home. When you find yourself at the mall, it becomes easier to walk away from the impulse. You could also delete your card from any online service you use.
  • Not passing by the mall. If you don't see the latest in thing or the sale, then you won't know what you're missing. And you won't be tempted to spend.
  • Not buying piecemeal. You save money by buying your groceries every salary period instead of at the corner grocery store every time you need to buy something. Bulk items are cheaper and you avoid the temptation of buying whatever takes your fancy when you visit the store.

Sitting is Bad for Your Health

Here is a great article I have found. Its a nice article for those people at work, who spends all day, sitting on their chair. Your chair is your enemy. Several recent studies have shown that those who sit most during the rest of the day have large waist and worse profiles of blood pressure and blood sugar than those who sit less. Apparently, there is a "physiology of inactivity," one action of which is that you spend long periods sitting, a crucial part of your metabolism slows down. Here are some suggestions that you can incorporate so you can move around while at work.

  • Look for opportunities to stand. You'll burn more calories if you do. So stand while talking on the phone. Trade instant messaging and phone calls for walks to other desks or offices.
  • Make the most of your commute. Walk or bike to work. If you ride the bus, get off the bus a few blocks early and walk the rest of the way. If you drive, park at the far end of the parking lot.
  • Take fitness breaks. Instead of just standing while on break, take a brisk walk or do some gentle stretching.
