50 work and passion quotes


Have you ever found yourself wrapped up in the fetal position, sucking your thumb, while a loved one desperately tries to pull on your suit jacket so you don’t miss your carpool?

Have you become so bored with work that you’ve started keeping sandwich crusts under your keyboard, just to see how many ants you can attract?  Have you started thinking about work as simply…work?

Everyone needs a little career inspiration from time to time.

Whether it’s to reframe your workplace goals, or to give serious thought as to why you’re working a specific job in the first place.  It’s nice to know that others have been there before, questioning, suffering, and wondering just as much as the rest of us sandwich-hoarding, ant-counting, schmucks.

So take a moment to read the “words about work” of those who have gone before, with grace and hilarity.  Perhaps then we can take a step back, pull our thumbs out of our mouths, put on our suit jackets, and get into that carpool with pride.

Kawan tu pun jodoh :')

Salam.

Pernah tak masa kau tinggal 20sen dalam poket, seseorang hulur kau rm10 buat tambang balik? Yang bila kau kebulur, gorengkan kau nasik share satu pinggan? Bila kau sedih bagi kau semangat macam gila.
Vice versa, Kau pun sanggup buat perkara sama utk dia sebab ketakberkiraan dia?

Kawan yang nakal pun bersama,
Kawan yang hambat kau solat kadang jadi imam solat jemaah.

Kau ada tak?

Seriously fie kenal minah ni masa raya tahun lepas. Kebetulan muka dia mcm yuna.. org cakap muka fie pun mcm yuna (pui perasaan - kenyataan ok! Haha)

Mulanya nak belajar selok belok financial market je dgn dia, sebab dia mmg banker CIMB dah 5tahun, boleh cakap pekerja cemerlang jugak kat CIMB sebab dia punya product knowledge yg power. Dia resign semata nak buat unit unit trust bila nampak peluang masa depan lebih cerah.

tak sangka pulak boleh rapat gila mcm ni.

Biasa lah 3bulan pertama macam gila sikit,
Tak ada kebun yang harini baru tabur benih esok dah keluar buah. Betul tak?

Alhamdulillah. Kami sama-sama tabur benih, sama-sama semai, sama-sama siram dan jaga "anak pokok yang kami tanam", dalam masa tuh lah kami sama-sama jatuh, terluka menangis! Sama-sama pujuk hati.

Banyak benda fie belajar dari dia :'*

Kasi kata motivasi.

Fie tak pernah ada kawan mcm ni punye passion dalam persahabatan. Macam ni punya tak berkira. Dia pernah cakap, dia punye tak berkira tu sampai kawan-kawan dia selambe jer hutang 4-5tahun tak bayar. Kerek betull.
Hard core dia boleh cakap kalau kau tak de duit, dia ada tiga ringgit masa tu, masa tu jugak lah di dia selit tiga ringgit kat kau tak kira perut dia pastu keluar statement "fie, aku dah biasa susah lah fie"

Terharu pun ada.

Tak semua kawan itu KAWAN.
Yang mana bila kita jatuh, baru kita kenal yg mana kawan yang mana lawan.

Memang dulu pernah mintak dikurniakan sahabat yg bermakna sesuatu,
sebab iman tak cukup kuat.
Semagat tak cukup sarat.

Syukur allah lorongkan bersahabat dengan mereka-mereka yang sejalan seiringan menuju tuhan & menuju kejayaan, alhamdulillah😭

...

Yg paling fie terharu, bila dia nak buat keputusan nak kawen secara tiba-tiba all the sudden, ade persoalan tentang fie jugak ter-included. "Kalau aku kawen kau macam mana?" -haha. Adoi.

Susah kalau aku dah start syg org.
Syg seorang kawan.
mcm bercinta jugak. Lol

Mungkin dah jodoh kita berkawan :")

Twitter is an effective tool for financial professionals and those wanting to follow financial news because it’s a quick way to consume information.

Imagine being en route to a meeting and reading through all the financial tweets you can gather for the period, and the amount of new learning and potential input it can give you to make key decisions for your career or, if you’re a professional, your client’s portfolio.

Because tweets cannot go beyond 140 characters, the delivery of concise, gist-only data is valuable and could make or break the next financial decision or advice that comes out of your mouth.

Here are the most widely used Twitter hashtags for the financial professionals and for students of finance.

As some of them are tweet chats, not only do these hashtags lead you to a smorgasbord of concepts both revisted and new, they also give you the opportunity to meet users with more experience, network with them and, possibly, attain new clients.

How The Rich Use Social Media For Financial Decisions

The wealthy are spending a lot of time on social media networks to acquire and share information on how they can wisely invest and grow their money.

Studies show how the rich are looking for new technologies that will keep them close to their financial advisors so they can make the necessary adjustments that will reduce finance-related problems and boost income.

Big and small investors are relying on the likes of Twitter and LinkedIn to guide their decisions. By directly engaging with the sources of information, investors become more active in the process and get the full facts about a potential move.

The Rich and Technologically Savvy

Research by Cogent, headed by Remy Domler Morrison, was conducted to determine how the wealthy relied on social media to make vital decisions regarding their financial strategies and investments.

According to the study, social media has dominated a huge part of how businesses and firms work and make plans. Financial firms such as Charles Schwab, John Hancock, Fidelity Investments, Wells Fargo, Janus, ING, USAA, American Funds, Vanguard and T. Rowe Price were shown to rely much on social media now when getting information that will be helpful in the way they make investments.

The survey by the Cogent research showed that 7 out of 10 wealthy investors changed their investment strategies and approaches because of the information they acquired through social media.

About one-third of wealthy investors rely on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to get tips on finance and how to allocate their investments.

The Cogent Research LLC survey followed 4,000 investors who had over $100,000 in assets that can be invested.

About 41% of the wealthy indicated that they usually found investment guidelines and information on social media platforms even though these weren’t the main reason they visited. One-third of the wealthy investors indicated that social media is very helpful in helping them communicate and get expert advice from their mentors.

Clients also communicate more effectively with companies through social media, which is why more companies and financial groups are creating online accounts.

A similar study by SEI also showed how the wealthy prefer getting the information regarding investments with huge potential. However, the study also found how they wish to improve how online advisers actually guide them into making the right investment choices.

3,477 individuals around the world with an average net worth of almost $2 million were observed by The Futurewealth Report: Helpful Investment Technologies. The report monitored how technology is becoming very useful as a means of expanding and sharing the expertise of financial advisors.

The Role of Social Media

The goal is to integrate technology with the main services offered by wealth and financial managers and advisors. Many wealthy individuals and companies around the world are looking for more convenient and accurate ways to safeguard their investible assets.

Social media is the most ideal and reliable tool that will improve the way experts communicate with clients. The wealthy can easily access information, as well as acquire and share information through the various social media tools and features. Experts can start conversations and activities that will keep their clients updated. News and current events can also be presented on social media so that investors can allocate their investments properly.

Social media engagement will improve the way planning and actual investments are made. Wealth managers and financial advisors can use social media to communicate with clients and other experts around the globe, with the goal to determine how clients in specific places can make the right decision. Because of the many advantages that social media provides, the wealthy and their wealth managers can work more efficiently and increase the likelihood of success in the years to come.
