So, this is basically where I’m at with all the whole student thing. As I’ve started using a grade calculator to make sure that I am going to hit my targets as far as academic goals. I had to make academic goals to keep myself accountable because being an older student sometimes seems so easy, but then you realize that if you don’t study enough for your tests, you won’t get the grades that will allow you to finish your courses with the type of results that make you proud. As an adult, this means a lot more to me than it did when I was a lot younger, and returning to school at an older age, I feel responsible enough to make sure that I am hitting the kind of grades that make me feel happy and proud to be doing what I’m doing, and not just kind of Getting By Doing the minimum that is required, like I used to when I was younger. No, I’m going to own being a student this time around, and a way that I never did when I was younger. That is my entire goal with this project and in general as a student. So, the grade calculator works as a good tool in the journey to stay fully accountable to what I’m doing. I think that it’s really good to have these tool so you can make sure that you aren’t falling behind, because it would feel really lame to be an overage student who wasn’t getting the kind of grades that feel successful and accomplished. Do you know what I mean? If the younger version of me would have heard myself saying this kind of thing, I would have thought that I had gone crazy or something, it’s so out of character for who I’ve always been.

The world has reached a stage where blind trust has no place. People know that the cheating culture exists and so they are always on the lookout. This is all the more true for real estate industry. It is a good practice though to be guarded so that no one can fool you but this has left most people over cautious. This is not good for realtors who are just entering the arena.

People are unforgiving with even the slightest errors of judgment and do not trust anyone who falls short on their promises. In the competitive world of real estate, the only way forward is through being charming and friendly and then to back it all up with evidence.

Here are a few tips that Eddie Yan recommends to live by:

A positive attitude: This is extremely important. Whenever you want to succeed at anything, the first step is to believe that you will make it big. This will motivate you to think beyond just the numbers. Money is a huge reward and motivation but to have other goals always enriches your work completely.

Mean Business: Do not ramble and tell things as they are but creatively. Your focus should be to try and find out what your customers are looking for. If they want you look for a house in a certain price range, get them the best option possible. Once you get at doing things well, it will no more look cumbersome or difficult. This will add to your reputation.

Do Not Over Advertise: Though it is good to talk about your achievements and what you can get to the table but do not go overboard with exaggeration. Just point them to a Vancouver MLS listing. To a level it is allowed and even needed in certain circumstance but do not make promises that you are sure will be difficult to keep. Give a real and practical picture to your clients so that they trust your word in the future.

A good track record: Even if you have struck just one deal so far, let it be done in the best possible way. All happy clients are likely to refer someone to you. So more happy clients mean more business.

At all times, self belief and hard work go a long way in determining where you will stand in the future. Real estate is no different. It is governed by profit and an ability to make maximum money but that by no means should mean compromising on quality of service.

2016 initiated with exciting news from the beacon world. Rite Aid arranges beacons to more than 4500 locations, while Verifone starts to use in their PoS the Footmarks beacons and Mobiquity is expanding further their beacon network. This is a Beacon year.

Nevertheless, the misconceptions are also common, spread by the media about the beacons use and proximity marketing.

Here are top 5 misconceptions:

Beacons track me everywhere

This is the most common of all. First, beacons cannot track and they only broadcast a signal picked by an app or broadcast a URL directly to the phone. The beacon and the device interaction takes place at the app level, such that you have to opt-in to permit beacon interactions. In case you decide not to opt-in, there is no tracking or interaction. As you believe an app vendor and the beacon interactions takes place for a value, locating the location of your device is possible. Bear in mind that to receive contextual messages, you may use navigation services or any beacon feature as it is important to know the location of the device. To be precise, you are in charge to interact with beacons.

 Beacons are used for push notifications

It is not entirely wrong, but the fact is true that iBeacon was released and some companies began using beacons to overload customers with notifications that eventually ends in hurting the customer experience. The proximity industry, fortunately, is now increasing with data driven applications and the beacons are left free to explore other areas in proximity.

 App is essential to use beacons

There are two beacon types and if you do not want to use the app use the Eddystone URL, known for the Physical web beacon protocol.  Besides, greeting your customers with beacons is not considered now the optimal way.

However, this concept may change soon. The URL support for beacons is currently at a basic level and is not supported on Android, hence there is frictionless experience. But the URL beacon support may be available for Android in Chrome in 2016 Q2 is anticipated. Secondly, Google creates native URL beacon support for Android OS, so that there is the potential to make user experience less frictionless.

iBeacon works on iOS and Eddystone on Android only

This is also a wrong conception. iBeacons work on android with a light difference. It wakes up apps on iOS device. On the other hand, on Android, you may have the app open or it should be running in the background. Using iBeacons on Andriod is a bit different, but it can be used.

Eddystone is appropriate for both platforms, but requires additional advantage that may cost iBeacon the standard title of the industry.

But there are rumours that URL beacon support will be released in Chrome for Android in Q2 2016.Secondly, when Google develops native … As iBeacon, Eddystone is compatible with both platforms, butwith an added advantage that could cost iBeacon the title of the industry standard. 5-common-misconceptions-about-beacons-and-proximity-marketing/

Let me just tell you that I have never had a positive experience with an eye doctor in my entire life. I’ve had fine times with dentists, podiatrists, General Practitioners, and I have a fantastic  Raleigh chiropractor who has helped me immensely since I moved to this city. Still, I’ve got to say, eye doctors just seem to dislike me in a completely unprecedented way. I know that my personality is sometimes regarded as being abrasive or pretentious– some call me crass and rude– but usually public servants and practitioners think that I’m a breath of fresh air and realize that I mean no disrespect by what I say. And yet, let me repeat, that I have never had a positive experience with an eye doctor in my life. Yes, this post is spurred on by the fact that I just today had an incredibly negative I test– although my vision remains in pretty good shape.
