Being Successful After The Age of 40 Is Possible

SylwilsonI started Syl Wilson Marketing full-time at the age of 41. Age is nothing but a number when it comes to becoming an entrepreneur and that can be seen with so many success stories as in the article below. If you are considering making a ‘go’ at living your dreams, I highly encourage you to do so. There is nothing else like it!

From the Business Insider:

For the more neurotic among us, a birthday can be a reminder of how another year has passed and our loftiest aspirations have faded further into the distance.

There are plenty of examples, however, of successful people across many industries who prove that you don’t need to have it all figured out by the time you turn 30. Read the full story here…

SMEs MUST invest in Digital Marketing or face untimely extinction 

entrepreneurshipclassified

Marketing is undoubtedly one of the major driving force that propels a business to continous success, it’s never all about money that you have to spend on marketing but time and effort are major resources towards providing what the “king” mostly requires. A survey by constant contact study an email marketing provider showed that only 34% of small businesses are planning to invest money on marketing although they are aware that marketing is key, they does alot of time consuming tasks such as store operations, stock keeping among others. This clearly shows that alot of SMEs haven’t been prioritizing on marketing but are slowly changing the direction due to the increased competition.
Time has changed and businesses have shifted more effort to digital marketing but SMEs are still lagging back due to financial constraints and limited focus on marketing budget,this should not be case anymore for their guaranteed survival. This…

Earlier today I stumbled across a conversation on Facebook where one person was complaining that they could not see all of their friends posts on Facebook again and that they are continuously having to go to settings to tell Facebook to show ALL of their friends, not the top posts. Well, low and behold then someone came along and shared a link that we can all click on and see every post that your friends posted in a timely manner.

F-3 Solutions

f3websitePolitical Strategists, Chad Proudlock and Matthew Ward reached out to the team at Syl Wilson Marketing to design a website that would display their creative work online, a logo for their new business (F-3 Solutions) and social media pages. This site is responsive and has features built in that allow for motion using video. The homepage has a video affect that is viewable on computers. Chad and Matt needed their website in a tight timeframe and Syl Wilson Marketing delivered with quick turnaround and incredible results. The logo was requested to resemble one of the scientific elements without being obvious. The social media needed to have maximum results in a short time frame due to press releases being pushed out fast. Additionally, Syl Wilson designed a website for a SuperPac that they requested called Stronger Together NYC. Both projects were delivered in short time frame with excellent designs.

Matters of The Heart

Bump My Music

The beautiful thing about music is that it has the ability to elicit certain emotions from our past, present and even thinking to the future. When it comes to matters of the heart we tend to choose music that speaks to our soul. It can be an excursion of sorts; and the destination…our feelings. We listen to songs that match the euphoria of a new relationship, the pain from a break up, or dare I say it (***whispers***) that baby making music.

When an artist is vulnerable and creative enough to share their story music has the power to captivate the mind. Vividly recalling specific details of an experience whether it be good or bad. You remember how you played the song over and over again, getting lost in the moment.
