Freelance Careers for the People Person

Working freelance can be an excellent way to take the reins of your career, to be self-sustaining, and to build a business that you reap the full benefits from in time. However, a common issue faced by many working for themselves is a sense of isolation and loneliness. A lot of freelancing involves spending plenty of time without human contact, so here we’re going to look at the careers that put you in touch with others to make use of those people skills.

Virtual Assistant

Though can do it from home like many other freelancing careers, the difference in being a virtual assistant is that you are always constantly helping someone else. Usually, these are business owners who will interface with you regularly to allocate work and ask for help on admin and organizational tasks. Some virtual assistant roles will require you to answer the phone and put on your best demeanor, good for those who like front-facing roles.

 

Nursing

If you already have nursing experience, then you could already be more than halfway to a fulfilling freelance career. Care homes, hospitals, and many other establishments will hire temporary nurses, giving you the opportunity to travel around the country and work with a broad spectrum of people. The more experienced you are, the more your services will be in demand, so an online family nurse practitioner track could really open up your options. If you’re in it primarily to care for patients, a lot of freelance nurse work can involve private duty care which means spending more time with individuals.

Social media
Socializing isn’t all face-to-face. This is a fact of life that many businesses are becoming more aware of as they look to social media as their next great frontier. If you have a little network savvy about you, then you could learn about social media marketing and apply that growing expertise to businesses who are looking to expand online. More and more businesses are jumping online and need people who already know the formats and know what works. There’s a great sense of fulfilment to concocting a strategy and watching a community grow thanks to your efforts, as well.

 

Teaching

Do you have experience teaching or some expertise in a field of study or industry that could be helpful to those newbies looking for a little help? There are tons of opportunities for freelance tutoring not just for kids in school but for adults looking to find a way into a specific field of life. Not only can you teach in one-on-one scenarios, but you can also launch courses online thanks to a growing number of platforms allowing for new educators to get their classes established and set-up for anyone around the world to attend.

A sense of community and of connection to others can be a very important factor in what makes a career fulfilling to you. If you know that you’re a people person, make sure that you find a career for yourself that puts you in contact with others.

3 Social Media Management Tips for Business Owners

Social Media is a force to be reckoned with in the business industry. It is not a thing you just do for fun anymore, especially when you have a brand/business to promote. It is serious business, and it amazes me how many businesses neglect their social media accounts.

Many of these business owners do not fully understand the impact social media has on their business. If they saw the big picture, they would pay that bit extra and hire a professional social media manager to sort out their social media accounts. Rather than trying to do everything by themselves, and failing woefully.

 

Money Management Tips Image

 

As a social media manager, I had to teach myself all I needed to know about social media, and I am still learning. There is always something new to learn everyday and I am forever grateful for the opportunities I have to learn.

 

Here are some social media management tips you can implement today –

 

Post regularly and consistently

Posting regularly and consistently is a great way to grow your social media platforms. It means you will appear regularly in newsfeeds, and attract more eyeballs to your pages and websites.

Regularly for me means every weekday, excluding holidays if you like. I find it very shocking whenever I come across a business social media account that has not been updated in days. Such accounts usually look neglected, almost like an afterthought. Growing a business with neglected social media accounts will never work in this day and age.

 

Don’t buy followers

I know how tempting it can be to buy social media followers. It is easily done and it seems everyone is doing it to boast their credibility. But I will never advise any brand/business to buy followers. It does not work long-term. The bought followers won’t buy what you are selling, and they will never engage.

I recommend running ads and being active on the social media platforms to grow the followers. This takes time and effort, so it is worth hiring a social media manager to get the job done professionally.

 

Give value

Social media is a platform for exchanging information, great content and value. As a business owner you need to run regular giveaways and discount deals to drive engagement. Also, you need to ensure any information you share on your social media platforms offers a sort of value to your followers.

 

These are some of my tried and tested social media management tips you could implement on your platforms today. Do let me know if you have any questions or tips of your own to share.

 

Thanks for reading. Have a lovely Monday.

 

 

 

Beauty Trends to Try this 2018

In 2017 we saw a lot of ground breaking changes in beauty trends. Women are becoming more influenced by what they see on social media and celebrities on magazine covers. This is a sure sign that in 2018 there will be a lot changes in beauty trends as more people are looking up to social media for inspiration.

Just like fashion trends, beauty trends are fast evolving and the sooner you are in touch with the latest trends the more up-to-date you will be. I know we’ll see a lot of surprises and exceptional creativity in 2018. However here are 5 beauty trends you should try in 2018.

 

  1. More underliners

Remember when the smoky eye was so popular? Imagine the complete opposite happening in 2018. Instead of the alluring smoky eye, women are going for more underliners. The underliners involve putting colour right below the waterline of your eyes.

It adds a pop of colour. In addition to that, it’s bold and outgoing. Seems pretty much like the theme of the new year, don’t you think?

 

  1. Transition from Korean skincare products and regimen to Japanese skincare products and regimen

Korean beauty products and skincare routines were extremely popular in 2017. A lot of women rushed to the Korean beauty line when they saw its wonders on those who tried them. This is because the South Korean beauty industry invested a lot in research and was able to produce effective skincare products that show really positive results.

However, it seems that they are going to face stiff competition from Japan which is coming up with their own skincare and beauty lines. This is good news for me as there is someone in my household visiting Japan very soon.

 

  1. The long eyelashes

The eyes are the mirror to the soul. If that is the case then why not make them more inviting? That’s exactly what is happening in 2018. There’s a way long eyelashes make the eyes pop, especially when done really well.

In 2017 I noticed an increase in the number of women getting eyelash extensions. There was also an increase in the number of women looking for serums that will help promote the growth of their eyelashes. So brace yourself! We’re definitely going to see a lot of women batting fluttery eyelashes this year.

  1. Cat-eye goes geometric

I absolutely love the cat-eye flick and it has been the darling of almost every woman in 2017. It was all over social media and the tutorials on how to make the perfect cat-eye flick were on almost every fashion blog and vlog on the internet.

And now in 2018, we will see the famous flick metamorphose into something more geometric. From the blunt tip to a more square-like brush, we’ll see a lot of creativity surface on our eyelids this year.

 

  1. Glossy lips

The luscious lips are always alluring especially when taken care of properly. This year glossy lips are making a huge comeback. Matte was pretty popular one time but now women are going for something with a little more shine.

Aside from choosing the glossy lips, adding a little glitter to their lips is also fast becoming a trend. That makes the lips more alluring, luscious and irresistible. It’s almost like crystal. This is a trend I’m really loving right now.

 

Which of these beauty trends do you like the most?
