Segundo dados da Fecomercio, 27,1% do faturamento do comércio brasileiro corresponde às micros e pequenas empresas, onde destas, 96,3% são de pequeno e médio porte. A federação também aponta um dado preocupante: 50% das microempresas encerram suas atividades com até 5 anos de vida. Pequenos e médios negócios possuem diversos desafios e investir em marketing com especialistas aumenta e muito as vantagens para melhorar seus resultados. O Sebrae sugere que empresas deste porte invistam de 4% a 12% do seu faturamento em marketing.

Or in this case, the opposite is true (it’s a bit of both)
.TRUE STORY: Years ago, I had been working with a client regularly for a couple of months. When she first came in, her primary goals were to alleviate lower back pain and improve her posture, since she habitually stood with a caved chest and rounded shoulders.
After months of hard work in her Pilates sessions, and cultivating a mindfulness for when she noticed herself rounding her shoulders in daily life, she asked me a really important question.
“Does doing Pilates have emotional benefits as well?” .
For me as a teacher, that was really exciting to hear, so I asked her to elaborate. She said that normally, she’s a really shy person. Because of her husband’s work she is required to go to a lot of social events, which is usually challenging for her. But since she’s started doing Pilates, she feels like she can walk into a room with more confidence. She said it was easier for her to open up to new people. .
This to me is really a testament to how powerful mindful movement is. As your teacher, I am a facilitator, but ultimately it’s YOU that has to do the work. YOU live in your body, and you have the power to make a change!

Hey guys! It’s Freedom Key Friday! For those of you who don’t know, every Friday, we wear our Freedom Keys (which you can purchase on our website) as a way to create awareness about human trafficking. For us, these keys are a powerful symbols of opportunity, hope, justice, & community. Most of us actually wear ours on a day-to-day basis because it gives us the chance to tell people what’s going on around the globe & what they can do about it. Awareness is prevention. If you’re wearing yours today, shout us out using #freedomkeyfriday !
Let these NEW babies go to work while this mamma got to work on my beautiful friend, mentor and sponsor @lorijohnson11 for her RVP Stage walk!!!! So freaking proud of you! ☺️🙌🏼 #nosleepnoproblem#6amhair#byepuffyeyes

Awwwh yeah 😎
Change is in the air! You can feel it! This news came soon after we got an updated response to our petition - read it in full from the petition link in our bio.
Apparently a few MPs agreed with us about the response being a bit lacking, and it seems things are in the pipeline... stay tuned ✌
One point....damn that one point!! So the scoring goes, bronze, silver, gold, platinum!
I was 1 point from platinum in applied mathematics testing this morning.
1 point....that’s it.
And you want in on a secret?
I was having fun doing those problems!
What the WHAT?! I just proved to myself I can do math and i can fun doing so.
I don’t suck at it.
Yes, fraction scare the crap out of me but if I just slow down & think I CAN figure it out.
Am I going to take homework help duty away from Scott Hermann or Blaine....uuummm...no way.
But if Mrs. Kathy Nunn ever stumbles upon my Facebook feed I hope she feels a little bad for telling a 14 year old girl who just had the worst year (at the time) of her life, in front of her 8th grade math class that she needed to be in remedial math. That had haunted me for years!
Not any more my friends.
And Ann Wilcox Schach thank you for giving me a love for science to help me through math.
And Roberta Siefken you are a saint for teaching me in high school and through statistics at SCC!!! If I would have listened to these two YEARS ago....oh the stress I would have escaped!
The point is....don’t let someone else have control of ANYTHING in your life!
Go out there and make yourself proud. That’s all that matters.
I just might frame this certificate!! What’s the highlight of your Friday so far!!?? Go out be an extra ray of sunshine out there today!!!
I watched a man abandon his beer can in the ocean yesterday because he was swimming “too slow” with one arm and two legs. This triggered something deep within me. The love I have for the Earth is so profoundly deep and connected. Why doesn’t he “get it?” I lamented. After I finished urging him in a loud voice to collect his trash, I wondered how he could be so disrespectful to such a beautiful ocean. I turned my anger quickly into observation, and compassion - I watched him with curiosity during the rest of my time with him. We were on a sailboat sunset tour, I didn’t know him, or his journey. We were a random sample of the population all looking to enjoy the sunset. After seeing how he treated himself, I had an epiphany — he doesn’t care for himself, how can he care for nature, for the ocean? He’s abusing his body with drinking excessively, he’s overeating, he’s talking about himself and others very negatively. Perhaps then the root of all of the waste, pollution, unhappiness, greed and violence is because of a lack of self-love on this planet. There are countless examples of this. So many are treating their bodies and spirits like trash floating in the sea. Until self-love is learned , there will be no convincing anyone to love the Earth. So, I will begin with loving myself today, so I can send a ripple effect of love to those who are still learning. If I’m given a choice between right or mind today, I will choose kind.
I’ve been so fortunate to see the world, and learn more about myself through my travels. When I ask how I can best serve the universe, I know that it needs me to use my voice for conservation. As I breathe in the oxygen from the plants around me, and exhale the CO2 they need to use photosynthesis to make the oxygen I breathe, I see so clearly how interconnected it all is. I want to spend my life using my voice to teach self love, earth love, animal love and sustainability. With yesterday as a beautiful reminder - the first step must be: Heal yourself, heal the world. #bethechange
Notice anything unusual about my outfit? Because you shouldn't.
Stylish, preloved designer outfits are easy enough to find if you know where you look and they don't look any less fashionable on their second owner.
Check out my most recent blog 💚(link in bio) which will spell out exactly how easy it is to get the sustainable, designer wardrobe of your dreams. Men, that means you too.
The lovely @virginias_stories from @rebelleofficial recently directed me to a report by ThredUp that expects fashion resale will be bigger than fast fashion within the next 10 years! Hurrah.

I couldn’t just stand and watch. There’s change in the horizon and I was compelled to paint, to use my voice, to tell the story in my art. Our kids are still hurting. From Parkland to Liberty City. From Marjory Stoneman Douglas to Miami Northwestern. Everywhere in our nation there are students who need adults standing by their side. I’m no longer a teacher but I’m still in the classroom—as a learner this time. Amazed and awed by the courage of survivors; by the way young leaders have committed themselves to bringing clarity and change; by the powerful voice of communities who’ve had enough and the song they’re singing together, one that echoes with the promise of new journeys. •
Going black and white on these babies so I don’t blind you with the lights at Los / my winter whiteness 😝 Soo.. for those who don’t know.. I suffer from terrible migraines and chronic tension. It makes living a normal life a struggle most days and it has made my fitness journey somewhat of a shit show for the last 7 years. I never know how I’m going to feel day to day or if my body will ever feel good. I’ve been working with @shawnkitz who has been helping me with the body pain and migraines for about a month. Today, I woke up virtually pain free and ran a mile and a half and then did some leg work (as seen above) and had no tail bone or neck pain. I honestly can’t remember ever having this happen?!? I could honestly cry! So for all my pain suffering friends out there... stay strong, do your best, listen to your body, and find a professional who cares! There is always hope 🙌🏼
It's been a tough week but on a positive note... *******God's timing has purpose and I trust that he is in control. The pic on the right (today) let's me know that I'm responding well to the challenges of one of my transitions.That being said, my life is filled with good things in spite of. @d.michele_green 🦋🌻💜 #seekthekingdomdaily#goodmood#blessed#healthywithMichele
Repost from @zoemarg - 748, 040, 296.
This number represents the chickens that were killed in 2017, in Canada, for food. To offer numbers for comparison, consider pigs (21,593,656) and cows (3,219,299). Chicken and fish are often the last ones to go. People cut out red meat in vast amounts. Sometimes their intentions are rooted in health concerns (reasonably so). Sometimes their intentions are rooted in a desire to reduce animal suffering.
Regardless of intent, chicken and fish are not "better". They are not "better" for you, the animals, or the environment. Supported by the numbers and stats, chickens (unquestionably) are the most mistreated and abused animals within animal agriculture, in addition to being killed in the highest numbers.
Marketing in the food industry has made it easy for us to remain disconnected from chickens. They live happy lives. They are cared for by compassionate farmers. They aren't traditionally cute. Their breasts are one of the best low cal, high protein food sources. They are killed humanely. They are sustainable. They're aggressive. Etc
If you lean towards these options because you think they are in fact, "better", do the next best thing: cut out all animal products.
There are a few lives involved in the equation of what is "better". We often only make calculations for the humans. First and foremost, include the considerations on behalf of the animals.

How amazing is this hunky dude is looking!?! 😍🙌🏻 It’s amazing to think this guy was on his way to death’s door just two years ago after being shipped to auction when he became injured performing his job for humans, discarded and unwanted, then purchased by negligent owners to be nearly worked to death. .
Did you know that there are approximately 200,000 unwanted horses in the US at this very moment? And those are just the horses that are in rescues or at auction, that doesn’t even include horses like Cash who are “wanted” but being treated as if they aren’t... OR the horses that are sold from owner to owner, where they most likely will be cared for... but are still being put at risk of ending up in a neglectful or abusive home. — So really, that’s a very conservative number. Out of 9.2 million horses in the US there are AT LEAST 200,000 horses are being sold or abandoned. 200,000 horses looking for a good home through no fault of their own. Most of these horses aren’t even old or injured. Did you know that most horses shipped to slaughter are under 9 years old? One study cites that 114,091 U.S. horses were slaughtered in 2016.... that number doesn’t include horses left to die, horses being held by rescues, and... like I mentioned before.. all the horses for sale by owners or breeders that may or may not end up in a good home. For example, Cash would have been included in those numbers due to the fact that he did indeed have an owner and wasn’t even technically for sale (I had to convince them to sell him to me). All of these unwanted horses... and we are still adding more. There are roughly 280,000 foals born in the US each year... if you think about it.. that means that at LEAST 200,000 of those 80,000 will end up abandoned or neglected at some point in their life. Only 80,000 foals bred each year will live a long well cared for life. Continued 👇🏻👇🏻 (please don’t comment unless you read the rest) #csCash#tweEducational#RightHorse
Have you seen the monument to the unborn victims of abortion at Mt Calvary Catholic Cemetery? It is a beautiful memorial to the babies who never got a chance to live their lives. If you would like to visit, the cemetery is located at 275 U street, SLC, Utah 84103
