Benefits of Working a Four-Day Work Week!

Monday through Friday, 8 hours a day. That is the standard work week for an average American. When looking for a job, people will consider looking for a company that has good benefits, hours, and culture. One way companies are starting to leverage themselves with good hours and a work-life balance is by switching to a 4 day work week. Instead of working 8 hours a day for 5 days a week they work 10 hours a day for 4 days a week, typically either having Monday or Friday off. Switching to a 4 day work week from a 5 day work week has shown numerous benefits including; employees not taking as much time off, work-life balance, increase productivity, and saving money altogether.

What the heck is SEO? 

The most popular question I’m asked by clients, friends, and business associates is the following: “So, what the heck is SEO?” This term is thrown around so often in the marketing world that it’s almost taboo these days. I believe so much of the confusion regarding it lies in its ambiguity.

You may not realize it, but most of your purchasing decisions are based on subconscious feelings. In fact, 90% of all buying choices made by anyone are influenced by underlying emotions or connections to a given brand. Do you still think words aren’t important?
