The internet is a wonderful place of learning. Just about any question you have can be answered on the internet. Sometimes, however, the answers you get are wrong. That is where open source courses come into play. They are courses that are offered by educational institutions that are free. You can go to these institutions and learn about valuable information depending on your interests. Some courses are more practical in nature like Emarketing , Ecommerce, business ethics online.

Creating free traffic to your website requires that you have a keen understanding of keywords and how to find them. The task can be daunting without good tools that show you the way. I have long known and have written articles about my favorite free SEO keyword tool called Jaxxy. Today, however, I am introducing a second free SEO tool called Ubersuggest. When combined the combination is absolutely unstoppable and opens the user up to endless writing and search engine ranking opportunities. Ubersuggest is a web based tool that takes the abc method of finding keywords and puts it on steroids. It automates and expands the technique and gives the user an opportunity to to type in a generic long tail keyword beginning and then expands it to gives you a vast amount of word combinations that begin with the generic phrase that you type in. It groups the phrases alphabetically.
Have you ever tried to accomplish something and failed. That feeling of failure has to be one of the most devastating emotions. Some people never get over it and try to avoid it at all costs. They are the excuse makers. They see something that needs to be done and then realize that they might fail. Instead of creating a plan and moving forward, they make excuses as to why they can t do it. Maybe they even say it can t be done. In some extreme cases that fear of failure drives them further and further into a hole of despair until they can t see anything that they can do. They are hopeless and beaten. The Feeling Of Failure Is A Lie We all have natural gifts and strengths. However, not one of us walked out of our mothers womb. We all had to learn to walk. We all had to learn to talk. We all had to learn to tie our shoes. Our entire lives are built on trial and error. No one is a born success. We all must fail first, learn and then build on that knowledge. That learning process is repeat
If you re asking yourself that question, most likely you would like to retire yesterday. I was asking myself that question about a year ago when I was all of 48. If you are like I was, you are realizing the day to day grind of a unfulfilling career is taking it s toll on your mind, body and spirit. The truth is most people will not have enough money to retire and still maintain the lifestyle that they are currently enjoying. The first few years after the traditional age of 65 retirement will be fairly normal without much change in your lifestyle. After that, however, the ever growing cost of prescriptions, medicare insurance supplements and taxes will take their toll. Trying to plan for those expenses is difficult because there is no crystal ball available to see the actual costs. That in combination with social security payouts becoming more and more meager make it difficult for people to thrive let alone survive. Those who would suggest that the know the magic number are guessing
