That's so Meta, Is the Metaverse the Next Big Thing?

Everything is so Meta! In case you missed it Facebook is now Meta, and that’s so meta.   What does it mean to say meta?

It was kind of cool, surreal, and still very clunky and not perfect. But another $10 billion should do the trick. META and Health? Mark Zuckerberg is a hands-on dad. His wife Priscilla Chan told The Times of London that a part of his bedtime routine with his two daughters, aged 5 and 4, is coding.  What will Mark and Priscilla think of FB and OG when their daughters are teenagers? What will the effects of the metaverse be on the brain?

Own Your Power the Jayson Waller Way: One Percent Better a Day

You write down your goals and instantly expect to achieve them. But how do you get started, especially during a pandemic? Self-made entrepreneur Jayson Waller shares the raw strategies that he uses to elevate his brands. In this episode of the Social PR Podcast, host Lisa Buyer chats with powerhouse entrepreneur Jayson Waller. From being kicked out of his high school to venturing into fatherhood as a teenager, Jayson has dedicated his career to guiding others to be bold and take control of their lives. Where To Begin Amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, Jayson earned $350 million in revenue for Powerhome Solar, which he founded in 2015. But this rocketing success didn't happen overnight. It was a collection of triumphs and failures that molded his solar energy company into the largest American Made panel installation business in the U.S. Jayson says that you should start off by setting small goals for yourself. Each day, write down two things that you would like to accomplish. At first, try to check off just one goal from your list. Then, work your way up to achieving both. Strive to be 1% better every single day so by the end of the year, you'll be 365% better than you once were. You don't have to be great today, just a little bit better than you were yesterday. Every "no" will strengthen and prepare you for that "yes" moment. There is always room to grow and learn from others no matter how accomplished and successful you become. No Excuses. ...
