In the fast-paced global era that we live in today, worldwide companies and organizations branch from one continent to the next.

Like many writers on the web today I was going to share with you my 3 steps to mindfulness in business, that silver bullet to transform your crazy busy lifestyle into a harmonic oneness with all that is commercial.

Continuing our segment on buzzwords, today we are looking at influencers, what and who they are, and what it means to be one.
Lately, more than ever, the word influencer has been tossed around a lot, but what does it really mean? An influencer is someone with an above average impact on any given niche process, meaning they can intentionally or unintentionally shape their particular area of expertise. This can exist in any field, from fashion and arts to food and service, to technology and business.
What does conscious mean? To be conscious means to be aware and responsive to one’s surrounding. Lately, this trend of awareness has made its way into the business world, where people are encouraged to be conscious of their market, their product, and their customers.
