401k_plan_coffee_investing_5_26_2014

This past week I listened to a presentation for young professional (20s and 30s) from one of the largest asset management firms in the world. The objective, which is of course to educate the audience, is also meant to help the firm snatch up talent and future wealth management clientele while those prospects are still spring chickens. Although I found the information presented to be generally useful and relevant to the respective audience, I couldn’t help but take a devils-advocate view on —well— just about everything. I bit my tongue until they presented this one particular example regarding a 401k

clubz-app-4-28-2014

Clubz, a new social mobile app, aims to reinvent groups. 

Imagine a huge WhatsApp group with people you don’t know but whom share your same passions. “It’s much like a WhatsApp group on Steroids,” says Moish Levin, Co-founder & CEO of Clubz. “Unlike WhatsApp groups, we are not limited to people you have on your contacts, and we offer a “lean back” discovery experience.”

everest app

If you’re motivated to better yourself and the world, check out Everest, an app that helps you reach personal goals. According to the markers, “Everyone has their Everest. We help you climb yours.”

With Everest, figuring out how to reach your goals is all about focus and baby steps. You can add an unlimited number of goals, but you can only choose up to three to focus on. From there, you can break down each goal into baby steps so you can achieve something each day and set reminders to help you get into the habit of taking certain steps to reach the goals you set.

ONDiGO is a new mobile app CRM for small business to quickly track conversations and tasks relating to their contacts.

Traditional contact relationship management systems can allow you to build better relationships with customers and potential customers. The problem? They’re really most useful for mid- to large-sized businesses, as you have to enter information into a large database.

If you’re running a small business, ONDiGO allows you to build better relationships with your contacts from the convenience of your mobile phone.

mallzee-new-approach-to-online-shopping-apps-10-12-13
Mallzee is the new online shopping app which allows users to buy from over 200 of their favorite retailers whilst receiving personalized style recommendations and sharing items with friends.

Last week, Jenna was faced with a dilemma. Having reached the age when all of her close friends were leading busy career-driven lives, she found herself alone in the realm of first-date-dress buying. This was unknown; this was daunting. Pressed for time and unsure of which look to opt for, Jenna began frantically sending late night screenshots of possible looks to her friends. Too short? Too tight? Too frumpy?

Meditation is often suggested as an antidote to stress, but it’s a daunting concept for many, bringing up images of sitting straight-backed on hard floors for hours…doing…what? And who has the time to sit still in the midst of a daily schedule that demands constant attention as it reels by like the nightly news on fast forward?

pluralis

Using the platform Pluralis, you can connect with designs to optimize your landing page for conversions.

In January I ran a story about the innovative approach Pluralis takes regarding conversion optimization. The story was exciting to me as a website owners, so I wanted to do a short follow up! In a nutshell, Pluralis takes away the pains of running landing page optimization projects in-house. The company lets you source the creative work to a crowd of conversion optimizers, a growing professional community. Then Pluralis tests the landing page variations these optimizers create, using its built in A/B testing tool.

everloop social network for kids

Everloop is a great alternative to Facebook for kids in the 8-13 range who want to socialize online while still being safe.

Every time I see one of my friends’ kids join Facebook, I cringe a little. Oftentimes, these children are under Facebook’s required age (13 years), but even a young teen often doesn’t use much discretion when posting online. Okay, let’s be honest. Many adults don’t use discretion when posting online either! The fact of the matter is that Facebook isn’t a great place for kids unless you’re watching over their shoulder every time they are online, which is pretty unrealistic for most parents.

Hullabalu is a new storytelling app available to entertain your kids in an interactive way on iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone. 

A few nights ago, I was at dinner with a friend and her family, and while we waited for our meals, the kids were busy playing on the family iPad. This kind of thing is pretty common these days, so most parents I know are always on the lookout for interesting apps that combine education and entertainment.
