Have you ever seen an advertisement or encountered a website that spoke to you so thoroughly and specifically that you wondered if the writers had, in fact, crawled inside your brain and siphoned your thoughts without your knowledge? This eerie yet satisfying feeling is the mark of a campaign well done: that a reader and potential customer feels like his or her thoughts and desires are validated and normalized.

Yes, Really. Starting this past Monday Google announced it will use ‘mobile-friendliness’ as part of its ranking criteria.
Why You Need a Mobile-Friendly Website
Just think about the last time you looked up a website on your smartphone that wasn’t mobile friendly and you already know why.

Many business owners start out with just one corporate executive, typically the one looking back at us from the mirror. As we grow from a one-person shop and operating as a freelancer into a viable business, we have to be intentional when selecting strategic partners and employees.
Mali Phonpadith is the Founder and CEO of the SOAR Community Network, author, speaker, marketing strategist, podcaster and the Executive Producer of Tea with Mali Cable TV Show. In 2015, Mali was selected as a Belief Team community partner through Values Partnership for the Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network BELIEF initiative. In 2016, she was asked to be an ambassador to the RiseUp Movie and Movement.
She has shared her insights at The Library of Congress, Smithsonian, University of Maryland, George Mason University, SAIC and other national venues. Advisor Today Magazine, Asian Fortune Newspaper, WJLA DC, Radio Free Asia, WHUR Radio, Voice of America, Intentful Magazine and numerous blog talk radio programs have featured her work and journey.
