How mobile is reshaping the entire shopping experience

The mobile mega-trend is impacting both consumers and retailers in a big way, and it’s happening both in stores and out of them — especially when mobility and analytics collide.

Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 12.29.03 PM

If you are already a Target Debit or Credit Card holder, then it wouldn’t hurt to look into joining Target’s Take Charge of Education program to help your children’s school out. You can also opt to help a school in your local area, where you attended or an extended family member’s school, the choice is up to you.

Target will donate 1% of your purchase made at Target stores, both in store and online to the school that you chose.

While activating my Target Debit Card online, I noticed that they were kind enough to let me know about this program.

I have decided to help my children’s school out. What I really like is the feature to be able to check my contribution and update the school. This allows you the access to view your balance and edit the school of your choice. You are also able to Search for an eligible K-12 school to see what Target has contributed.

Bottom line is:

It all adds up!


Talk about extra credit!

Just use your Credit or Debit REDcard, and Target will donate 1% of your Credit or Debit REDcard purchases made at Target and to help the eligible K-12 school of your choice.

You can learn more about Target’s commitment to education and explore more of their programs that help kids.

New Year, New Post

As you may have noticed, I have been away from my blog and writing for way too long. I was on a very long hiatus, some of it by choice, some of it not by choice and most of it just by circumstances. Most of it was due to personal things going on in my life and not knowing wether it was appropriate or not to write about it, the other part of it was worrying wether it would be used against me for telling my story and the other part was just life keeping me away with kids, school and working, that pretty much filled up my days, as you can imagine. Then all the personal bits of going through a long divorce, helping my kids through it, repairing and rebuilding my life.

I have decided that with the New Year here, this is my opportunity to jump back into something that is positive, is good for me and something that I enjoy doing. I know that I am supposed to be doing this and have made it a priority because there have been too many times where I happen to have free time and just sitting down and wondering what to do or on the computer thinking I should be writing about that particular topic. I didn’t because I thought it was too late to jump back in. I also want to get back into writing for freelance jobs.

That’s the thing about our mindsets. Once it is made up, there is no changing it. Until the next wave of circumstances happen to wash over us. Then we rise above it and are renewed with different thoughts than what we once had. This is me, all the time.

I know that I have a lot to share and offer. I have my opinions and thoughts about stuff and I have ideas and resources to share. It is my hope that you will help support me in my endeavor by being engaged with me on here by adding your comments, sharing things you find worthy and suggest other things, as well. I know you get the point, so I will stop right there.

It is my goal to post something every day but we know that is not always realistic and possible, so at a minimum of once a week.

It is my intention to post from my heart and mind, my own speaking. I hope that I will have the ability and sense to know just how much to write or post is enough and not too much.

I also want to post and share other links and articles that I feel are worthy of sharing on here.

I know that everything may not be of interest to you and that is okay, it is here to help me, too. This is a daily work in progress.

I am ready and I am doing this, right now!

Currently, while on school break, I am in the process of cleaning out the paper clutter in my office and also making a Vision Board to help me make a good running start to a successful new year. I will be posting my Vision Board, as it comes along. I will be posting tips, tricks and ideas that I am doing to help the process with the paper clutter. I am also trying to grow my photography business in between going to school for a dual degree in Photography and also Graphic Design, which should go nicely with my current degree in Computer Information Technology.

I have not decided how much personal things I want to be writing about. I have been thinking about this for a long, long time now. We all know there are people on Social Media who do not know the boundaries of posting personal information, however at the same time, it could help someone. So what do you suggest? Do you have rules or recommendations on how much is too much? Does a blog have different rules than on Social Media?

Happy New Year! Let’s make it a successful, positive and prosperous one!
