Lack of New Homes Helping Drive New Construction Prices to Record Highs | Live in Brevard | Scoop.it
Anemic new home construction activity in the wake of the housing bust is doing more than constricting overall inventory of homes for sale – it’s also helping push up both the price of those new homes that are built and the overall age of homes that do sell.

Study: More Owner-Occupied Homes Becoming Rentals

Study: More Owner-Occupied Homes Becoming Rentals | Live in Brevard | Scoop.it
The study shows that 6.5 percent of homes built before 2000 and 10.3 percent of homes built in the 1990s went from owner-occupied to rental status.

“Underwater homes are notably more likely to transition into the rental sector, possibly because of reduced incentives to maintain the home and related decay,” notes Stuart Rosenthal, a Syracuse University professor, who authored the study.

12 things successful people do in the last 10 minutes of the workday

12 things successful people do in the last 10 minutes of the workday | Live in Brevard | Scoop.it

Perhaps you spend the last 10 minutes of your workday staring at the clock, counting down the seconds until you’re free. Or, maybe you bury yourself in your work until the very last minute — then you grab your stuff and go without saying goodbye to your colleagues.

 

If either of the above scenarios sounds familiar, it may be time to reassess your end-of-day routine. “How you finish the workday is very important,” says Michael Kerr, an international business speaker and author of “The Humour Advantage.” “It can set your mood for the rest of your day; it may impact your personal relationships, overall level of happiness, and how well you sleep that night; and it will set the stage for the next day.”

5 Morning Rituals That Will Double Your Energy Levels | Live in Brevard | Scoop.it

Whether you're at the starting line preparing to compete for the gold in the 100 meters or you're trying to be at your most productive state--how you start often predicts the outcome.

If you stumble at the start of the 100 meters--it's nearly impossible to catch up. If you get off to a lethargic start to your day--you're going to be reacting to the day instead of being proactive.

Successful people understand that the day starts as soon as their alarm clock rings.

If you desire to become a more productive, healthier, and happier individual, here are five powerful morning habits to do before starting your workday, and in turn, help you win the day.

Four Reasons You Hate Networking And What To Do Instead

Four Reasons You Hate Networking And What To Do Instead | Live in Brevard | Scoop.it

If you’re a normal professional, you may just feel at least a smidge of apprehension or resentment when it comes time to drag yourself to (or get dragged to) a professional networking event. Sure, sure, the crab puffs might be killer, but there are so many things to not love about these shindigs that I’d be here for hours if I tried to highlight each one.

 

Because that doesn’t sound fun for either of us, let’s start with four common reasons why you don’t enjoy them—even when you know (or suspect) they’re important to attend. And then let’s find a better option for every stinking one of them.

Should You Apply For Your Dream Job If You're Not Qualified?

Should You Apply For Your Dream Job If You're Not Qualified? | Live in Brevard | Scoop.it

There it is: your dream job. There’s just one problem. You don’t meet all the qualifications.

 

It's a conundrum. Should you channel your inner life coach and go for it? Or should you follow the rules and wait until you have the right experience or credentials? If you sit it out, you may miss a great opportunity. On the other hand, you don’t want to waste your time or, worse, alienate hiring managers by wasting theirs.

 

It’s a tough question, but you should almost always err on the side of "go for it," says career expert Cynthia Shapiro author of What Does Somebody Have to Do to Get a Job Around Here? 44 Insider Secrets That Will Get You Hired. After all, everyone has to take a job that stretches skills if they want to move ahead. Before you do, these career coaches and recruiters recommend asking yourself these six questions.

As a small business owner, you will undoubtedly be aware, that this is much easier said than done.

MobiusMedia's curator insight, December 22, 2016 3:14 PM
The Sales Pipeline is the life blood of any business turning a profit. Many businesses can survive with dated CRMs, weaker than needed management, and even poorly executed customer service... but the one thing every business must have is a steady flow of customers. This article may have some insight on the subject that you may not have thought about or implemented to the best of your ability.
