    Every year, Marvel’s cinematic universe grows stronger. More characters are added to the roster. More films come out every blockbuster season. More millions are generated over each opening weekend. The fandom around Marvel’s films is understandably strong. With decades of lore to get lost in, you can be hours-deep into a superhero’s backstory without even scratching the surface.

    Finding balance in your life? Want to get your life back? A few years ago, I applied a simple concept to optimize what I was doing daily. It was simply to do 5 little things each day to get me closer to my goals. Back then, that goal was to grow my network. So all I did daily for over a year was: Follow 5 new people everyday Start 5 conversation with people I don’t know Say hello to 5 old friends Retweet at least 5 people Add 5 new people on Facebook Comment on 5 blog posts The idea was to go slowly but surely. I was aiming for a snowball effect to grow my network to where it is today.

    Hey Lorrie the first question that I always ask people is how many setbacks and seeming failures did you have to push through to get you to where you are today? I love asking this as I believe so many people fall short of their dreams and goals when they just needed to keep persisting when the going gets tough.  I have lost count of the setbacks, failures and “no’s” I have experienced in my career.

    Many bloggers overlook the question-and-answer site Quora, which is an untapped source for traffic. It’s the best authority-building social network because the “currency” of Quora (upvotes) depends on the quality of your answers to the questions others ask. If your website provides how-to posts, training or guru content then Quora is a perfect resource for driving traffic. There’s a good way to use Quora, but also many bad ways. The bad ways will get your answers taken down and your hard work destroyed, so it’s important to be careful. When done right, though, the quality of the…

    Every year, around 800,000 people attempt to give up smoking via the UK’s NHS Stop Smoking service. It’s estimated that just 15% will remain smoke-free after one year. Unlike in the tobacco industry’s heyday, it’s not improper information or coercive advertising that’s making people light up. Tobacco manufacturers have had tons of advertising and communications regulations heaped on them over the past century. From 1965 onwards, cigarette advertisements were banned from airing on television. Social media, too, has a heavy hand of regulation when it comes to…
