International Day of Happiness
We at The Pursuit of Happiness are happy to be partners in the worldwide movement to spread happiness to all. UN resolution 66/281 establishes the International Day of Happiness as March 20th every year, recognizing the pursuit of happiness as a fundamental human right and goal, and universal aspiration in the lives of all human beings.
Website / Business
GoDaddy has been my go-to service since 2007 for all things website related. While I don't always utilize their entire product and service line - overall, they have served me very well. I think by far their best service is the Domain manager.
We are using GoDaddy's web-hosting service currently as a bit of a trial run to see how well it performs considering I've read mixed reviews about it. I'll let you know how it is coming along in an upcoming post. For now, if you run into any problems please, PLEASE, please let me know either on Facebook or Twitter.
Oh GoDaddy, for years now you've helped me with my domains, both for personal and for business. And now, there are many new extensions to play with. Thank you for the playground.
Another one I've been using for years in my businesses. The capabilities go much further than for what I've used it for but its completely eliminated our need to be tethered to an in-office phone system. We simply configured the auto-receptionist to send calls to our cell phones based on the number or department the caller is trying to reach. I can't imagine us switching to a different cloud-based phone system. Anyways, good stuff if you need an easy-to-use but still professional phone system.
Oh, Amazon how I love thee. Where would we be without Amazon Prime? Running around the shopping mall trying to find things no doubt. Amazon really needs to explanation, but if you haven't already signed up for Amazon Prime (Two-day free shipping, Amazon Instant Video, Amazon Music, Photo Storage, and more) then shame on you! Best $99 bucks I've ever spent.
Frugality & Self-Sufficiency
Swagbucks is a program that I have been using for two years now and I've received hundreds of dollars in gift cards so far. It is easy to implement and while you can go out of your way by taking surveys and other things to get the 'Swagbucks' I don't. I simply use the internet how I normally would and the Swagbucks add up via searches. Its too easy not to use for some extra Amazon purchasing power.
