Himbas, who are indigenous to Namibia, are considered the last nomadic people of the country and one of the last of Africa. In the 16th century, when they were still a part of the Herero tribe, they migrated across the Angolan border to the Kunene region. At the end of the 19th century, most of their cattle died from a bovine epidemic. As cattle herders, some migrated south for survival while others stayed in the Kunene region. This was when the tribe split. The Himbas stayed in their territory and the Hereros — who George descended from — migrated south.
In the late 1960s, Pamela was a San Francisco State University art major. She began attending Stephen Gaskin’s seminar ‘Magic, Einstein, and God,’ one of the many classes part of the University’s experimental college. “It was a group of classes you didn’t get credit for, but you definitely learned from.

We felt like kindness could change the world, and at that time, things needed to be changed.”

A common question I get from many travelers is, “Do I really need travel insurance?” This is a common theme among travelers and backpackers alike. It is an added cost. It can be, not so much with WorldNomads, hard to get. Finally, a lot of people think they will never get hurt or nothing will ever get stolen. The fact about insurance is, you do not need it until you do!!!

Niche websites, lots of traffic, heavy commissions, ad clicks and passive income. That’s the dream, right? If you’ve been chasing it, I don’t blame you. Who doesn’t like partying in luxury beach resorts with dozens of other millionaire marketers who’ve made it big and broken free from 9 to 5 slavery? (You know, the ones who send you their party pictures all the time) It looks so tempting, so easy and so much fun. But there’s one really boring piece of this puzzle without which you can’t accomplish anything. It’s the life-blood of any niche website and the biggest roadblock for most wannabe niche marketers. Content creation – you guessed it right! To build successful niche websites that generate reliable passive income, you need to create high-quality content regularly (LOTS of it). In most cases, you can’t do it all alone and, at some stage, you’ll need to hire content writers to help you And that’s where it gets tricky.
Whether you’re having a face-to-face meeting with prospective clients, or trying to market your brand with blog content, first impressions count. In fact, in the digital world brands often don’t get a second chance, because online consumers have short attention spans and they’re already bombarded with hundreds of blog posts, emails, social media posts and advertisements every day. According to research published in Psychological Science, it takes an average person a tenth of a second to form an impression about a stranger based on appearance and looks. However, as a blogger, it’s not just about making a strong first impression. Keeping your readers engaged and converting them into subscribers and customers is equally important. Which is why, the moment a new visitor comes to your blog, you need to take them from one level of excitement to another. Sounds difficult right? Let me simplify this for you.

However, due to the speed at which things happen on Twitter, many companies fail to take full advantage from it.

If you’re serious about blogging, I’m sure you’re already building an email list (or planning to do so) Since you’re a Problogger reader, I’m also assuming your knowledge and expertise in blogging is significantly higher than most newbies. So you’re well-aware that “Get Free Email Updates”, that beautiful sign up form in your blog’s side-bar, isn’t an attractive incentive for potential subscribers anymore, right? No one wants to subscribe to another email list just to pile up more junk in their email inbox. Don’t get me wrong. Email is still the best way to build a relationship with your audience and turn them into paying clients. Studies suggest that 66% of online consumers in the US aged over 15 made a purchase as a direct result of marketing emails.

We have a natural tendency to start cutting back on the food we eat when we want to lose weight. A more effective method would be to add food to what you already consume. Sounds confusing? It’s really a simple concept. Instead of cutting back on or eliminating the foods we eat to make way for the ones that are recommended, simply add the other foods to your existing diet.
