So You’ve Decided to Rent out Your Home? Some Tips

Cynthia Kent and her husband, John, didn’t set out to be landlords, but career choices made it necessary.

“We have rented out our home in Florida for nine years because we move all over with the military,” says Kent, who recently relocated her family from Nevada to Alabama for yet another posting.

Some people become accidental landlords because of a job change or difficulty selling a house. Others find they need to rent out the home of an elderly parent who has moved into a care facility. More than 3 million owner-occupied homes were converted to rental properties between 2007 and 2011, according to a 2013 report by the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University.

Some advice for those taking on this challenging new role:

Treat Others the Way You Want to be Treated

Good example of good customer service!


Ok. I admit it. I am obsessed with customer experience stories. I love hearing about them. I love seeing videos of peoples reactions when a company goes above and beyond. I really love seeing our customers reactions when NS4L delivers an awesome customer experience… It makes me want to do it again and again.

Yesterday, Leigh came into my office to discuss a scooter repair that has been in the NS4L shop since April. I know. Crazy, right? This is EXTREMELY rare. It drives me nuts if a customer’s scooter is in our possession this long. Let me explain because I know NS4L customers read this blog and I don’t want anyone freaking out 🙂 . . .

This doesn’t happen with scooters that are purchased from our store. We stock thousands and I mean TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars of parts in our service department. The scooter brought in…

Women's iLab

As law school graduation approached, the startup venture I had been building and working on for the past three years was not only losing money on an hourly basis, but user growth had stagnated and we were running out of ideas. Despite these grim prospects, I still remember waking up everyday inspired to keep pushing forward and excited to see what fires would need to be put out next. My heart was in the right place, but my conscious was telling me otherwise.

So I was faced with the choice many female graduates are experiencing today – what did I want to do with my life?

On the one hand, law school had prepared me for a career and life trajectory that was easy to understand. Financial stability seemed to be a given – lockstep promotions each year, followed by increasingly generous bonus schemes. On the other hand, becoming an…

Am I Thirty Yet

A few weeks ago I went to my friend’s graduation. I’m one of those people who tends to cry at everything. I can’t even watch 95% of the commercials they air these days without a box of tissues on hand. So I warned my friend that I’m probably going to tear up at some point during the ceremony. Graduations can be an emotional thing and I just knew one of those speeches was going to get to me.

I couldn’t have been more wrong. Sadness was the last thing on my mind. If I was going to tear up, it would have been from laughing so hard. I laughed at most of the speeches. It was either I laugh or scream with rage. Anger. That’s the emotion I felt the most during the graduation ceremony.

I graduated from college over four years ago. I owe a ton of money from student loans…

What Is Digital Marketing?


Back To Basics

I couldn’t start a blog without explaining what I will be writing about and why it is important to you, my reader. Nowadays everyone talks about how important is to be online and how it helps businesses. But the reality is that not everyone knows what digital marketing is, and what it covers. Digital marketing is constantly evolving due to the emerging channels, changing consumer preferences, and data proliferation. That is why I will try to give you a clear path forward.

For us to define digital marketing, we need to go back to basics and define what marketing is. The American Marketing Association defines marketing as

“the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large”.

Basically marketing is the set of activities used to promote a business that delivers value to…
