The 24th annual Eastside Culture Crawl has announced that it is expanding its reach this year with virtual and appointment-based studio tours and livestream demos.

 

“Each year, we welcome visitors to explore the richness and vitality of the Eastside Arts District,” says artistic and executive director Esther Rausenberg in a press release. “And while artists have faced unprecedented hardships this year, our mandate for the 24th annual Crawl remains the same—to celebrate the extraordinary talents of our visual artists and inspire a creative connection between artists and the greater community.

 

That connection for the Crawl–which takes place November 12-15 and 19-22–will be made through enhanced, interactive virtual programming, via the use of a new digital appointment scheduler for controlled, in-person engagement at open studios. A virtual preview week, November 2 to 9, will feature a curated selection of artist workshops, demonstrations, and talks, as well as the seventh annual Moving

When you are starting a side hustle, one of the most important things you can do for your business is market. But marketing can get pretty out of control if not planned strategically. The first thing you need to do is make sure your marketing is synergistic with your sales plan. 

Years ago, I worked for an ad agency in San Diego. Out of the blue someone called our office and asked to speak to the media buyer – which was me. I answered the call and it was a local plumber, who serviced commercial buildings and businesses. He wanted to know if we could create an ad for his business to shine on the side of building at night – because he saw this done in Las Vegas the weekend before and thought it was clever. 

So I asked him, “This particular ad would only be seen during evening

A side hustle is defined as doing something on the side – which means that you’ll be juggling your other life responsibilities. So one of the best things you can do for yourself and your business is to automate, define systems and standard operations that can easily run without your constant attention. Any task that you repeat should be automated so that you can free up your time and attention. Anything that is vital to the health of the business needs to be systematized so that it can be repeated by others you may bring on down the road. 

One of my favorite business books, “eMyth Revisited” by Michael Gerber is a fantastic book on why you need to create systems and how to do it successfully. He also details out the pitfalls and burnout that can occur by not creating systems. If you are a new entrepreneur, it’s hard

The market’s main indexes are climbing back above key points, after posting losses in September. The S&P 500 has climbed back above 3,400, the Dow Jones is back above 28,000, and the NASDAQ is over 11,300. Since the indexes hit bottom on September 23, trading has been volatile- but trending upwards.

By appearances, the market has corrected itself, and looks to be returning to the bullish tendency it showed through the summer. The September jobs report showed that the economy continues to recover, albeit at a slowing pace, from the coronavirus-inspired downturn of the spring. President Trump’s COVID diagnosis threw investors for a day, but his return to the White House and his path to recovery offer a calming effect.

In all, it has investors looking to buy back in. And for those investors who are still nervous, Wall Street’s analysts have picked out stocks with plenty of momentum propelling

The first thing that many of us would say when we hear the words side effects are, how bad is it. How would you feel if when I mention side effects in this case they are actually the positives that occur with the use of computer glasses or a computer lens aid. Those of us who lived through the 60’s, and now are in our 60’s, are buying the majority of computer laptops today and experiencing the side effects of using computers.

Many of us consider the use of glasses as simply a way to correct ones vision and to improve eyesight. However, by using computer glasses, you will be able to do so much more than simply correct your vision. Here, you will also be able to alleviate a good amount of the neck pain that you may have been feeling as well.
