Numerous ideologies of project management

Numerous ideologies of project management have been the same since the 1970s. Just like everything from that era, there have been some updates over the ages; however, the rudimentary principles are the same. You may know that deadlines and returns on investment have been a growing problem for quite some time.

If you ask your parents or grandparents, they likely experienced the same issues in their day. Why has nobody resolved the issues in the flawed methods of project management? This may come as a surprise to you, although it is not the project management process to blame. Even if you follow the S.M.A.R.T. methodology, and fully implement Kaizen across your organization, you will miss deadlines and your profitability will suffer.

This ought not to be the case. Your company continues to miss deadlines or leave money on the table without reason. A recent poll study shows 70% of all projects suffer delays due to communication issues. Why is the number so high? People fail to check voicemail in addition to respond to emails in a reasonable amount of time.

There is a simple solution to the problem. Virtual Project Collaboration software through http://www.2tasks.com will not only track all communication as well as documents but also features chat, task management, milestones, calendars, and everything else your company needs to keep your projects moving and on budget. You can even try it out on a single project with ten users free for 90 DAYS! No credit card requirements or annoying spam emails. In addition, all of your project data goes through the latest encryption before delivery to the cloud network.

Leadership and personal growth opportunity

Starting a company takes time and patience, at times, I feel I have little of either. I have joined a small group of leaders here in the Dayton area to build the region as a place for small businesses to thrive. We are offering mentoring and assisting one another to grow as leaders and business partners.

It is easy to take advantage of our own fortunate situations in life, forgetting those who are struggeling to put food on the table. We cannot help those who are not willing to help themselves, however, if one is willing to put forth the effort, we are puting in the extra effort to make them successful in whatever they attempt.

I encourage anyone in the area to stop by Eclipse on Wilmington Pike, Wednesday mornings at 7 am. We drink coffee, share stories, and offer a hand up in the world. Finding the right connections to take your idea or business to the next level is a goal of every member in our group. We are not just a tech group, nor do we focus on any industry. Members are artists, motivational speakers, HVAC owners, Tech Start-up owners, managers, and we even have our very own pastor!

I have not always been the positive role model for future generations, however, this group has proven to me that the best way to grow as a person and a business owner is to share my time and knowledge with others. In the last couple weeks, I have found a new market to target for my software, which I had completely overlooked. I don’t want anyone else to miss out on this opportunity. It is free to attend, there is no long term commitment, we are not selling anything. Just sharing knowledge and ideas to help everyone in the group grow as leaders.

Please consider joining us for a morning session. If it is not your cup of tea, at least you will have a few more people cheering you on with your future endeavors (which never hurts). Who knows, it could be the missing link you have overlooked to take your company and life to the next level.

SEO Tip – Tags And Categories On WordPress.com

I had no clue that 15 was the golden number. I will need to make some adjustments… Thanks for the help!

You’d have thought I’d know this already, but I didn’t … doh !

I was doing some research into the most popular tags used. I found a WordPress support page that states that your posts will not go into the reader if they have more than 15 keywords (tags + categories). I’d been working on the assumption that more was better … appears not …

Check this out – http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/

I’ve also realised that it’s largely pointless to put a post in category called “photography” and tag it with “photography”. One or the other. The reason for this is that the reader uses both tags and categories. Having said this you might still want to tag it as “photo”, “photos” and “photograph” for maximum exposure in the reader. As far as I can make out these are all considered to be different in the reader.

Other useful advice that I…

5 Steps to Building a Success Virtual Assistance Business

Sutton Creative Studios

books, papers and studies by husseyLately I’ve been networking in quite a few Facebook and LinkedIn groups, particularly those comprised of virtual assistants. You would be surprised by the camaraderie in these groups, especially considering that we’re supposedly competing for work. Rather than being standoff-ish, however, we help each other out. We cheer for each other when somebody land a first (or another) client, and we provide insight about invaluable tools and applications. Because of my active participation in these groups, several members have asked how we built our business to where it is today. Because of this, here are my “5 Steps to Building a Successful Virtual Assistance Business.”

1. Start Out Humble. Let’s face it. Even if you’ve been an executive or administrative assistant for the past 15 years, you don’t have virtual assistant experience. The people you are marketing to, all over the world, don’t know you from the next person…
