How to set smart goals and achieve your business targets

How's it going with those resolutions? Have you taken any action? Are you happy with your progress? Or have you decided to wait till January next year to start afresh? Don't be too hard on yourself. We often start the year off with these ambitious goals, but after a few weeks, we find ourselves back at square one... and most of the time we aren't even surprised. We knew it was coming. Why most goals aren't achieved Most goals get neglected because they are: I. Too big- so we don't even know where to start. II. Too far ahead- so they don't seem immediate.

4 tips to make you a more productive entrepreneur

Songs to help you get through a heartbreak

If you're having girl(or boy) problems I feel bad for you son(or daughter), I got 99 problems but a b**** ain't one.  Who am I kidding? Heartbreak happens to the best of us... yup, that's including me. While most people handle it fairly well, there are some whose lives end up ruined as a result of the ultimate betrayal. I've been depressed at some points, and though time may heal most wounds, some scars become constant reminders of a love lost and the way it left us feeling empty. One thing I have learnt however is that whenever it happens, instead of being in denial, it is much wiser to face it head on. So I give myself time to grieve and let it all out. One of my best outlets is music. There are some songs which can plug into your chest, connect to your pain and then say the right words to your wall of shame. Heartbreak is definitely no laughing matter... and I know for some, it may even seem like the end of the world. Take a break, cry or do whatever you feel will he
