Books are an incredible resource to gain insight and experience from someone who’s immersed themselves in a field for years. Over the past year, I’ve tried to read one new book a month based on my different interests at the time. Here are the books I’ve read recently and can recommend to anyone.
As a result of random Tuesdays, Sundays, and Fridays exploring the East Village and Lower East Side, I’ve created a definitive list of the lesser-known places to eat, relax, and party in the area.
Moving is always a hassle. When the summer heat comes to the northeast, so do the increased rent prices (which makes renting out an apartment a pain!).
But, as with most things, there’s a way to beat the system. After reading Nudge, I was inspired by the examples of little changes that produce huge results.
Thankfully, the perfect opportunity arose. Recently, I decided I wanted to move from my apartment in the Lower East Side of Manhattan to an apartment in a different area with a good friend. In order to move from this apartment, though, I needed to find someone to take my place. Anyone who lives in a large city knows what a pain getting rid of an apartment can be. However, in order to separate myself from the million other people trying to leave their place, I decided to test some ad variations. Below, you’ll see the four different advertisements I ran, the results, and the funny unexpected result to this process.
Are the social media advocates right? Is social media really the advertising platform of the future? Or maybe the traditional crowd is in the green, and social media is a nothing but a blip that will inevitably burst. To determine the benefits of social media advertising I took Facebook Ads to the chopping board. With a multi-thousand dollar budget, I ran an experiment. How did it hold up?
Two videos for recent graduates that will help them get a job and succeed during the first 100 days on the job.
It all started because I wanted to be healthier. I was sick of waking up at 7:30 every morning exhausted. I hated being tired on the weekends while I was out with my friends. Most of all, I wanted my energy back, and I wanted to look and feel healthier. Thus, my search to find the holy grail of healthy living began
I hate two things in this world more than just about everything: doing my laundry and waking up early. Despite valiant efforts, I rarely feel fully rested when waking up before 9:30 in the morning. Interestingly enough, I can go to bed at 10 pm or 12 am, wake up at 7:30, and still feel equally tired. I needed to dig into my sleep habits, because often times, more sleep didn’t help me feel more rested. I looked into WakeMate to help me solve my tired feeling, and here’s my review.
It happens to all of us: after years of wear and tear, your computer slows down. The Internet doesn’t load as fast as it used to, you get weird pop-ups, and it takes a while to open programs. This is avoidable, though! Until recently, I had a five-year-old laptop I used daily and it’s still ridiculously fast. Using some tricks below (and not clicking on suspicious links!), I was able to increase the life of my laptop past the normal two year usable span.
Mobs of people, hours waiting in a line, frantic searching through the store for that one item you wanted. Sound appealing? Of course not. But, if you don’t plan your Black Friday ahead, this will be you! Since I’m a deals fanatic, I’ve compiled a list over the last three years which I use every […]
When most individuals and small companies hear about advertising they think two things. The first: Evil!!! The second: Sure, it can benefit large companies, but what about little old me? If you believe this, get ready to break through your assumptions: the benefit to everyone can be gigantic. Using the methods below, I was able […]
