Ubersuggest is Now More Free

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Please read the whole post as I have a few surprises for everyone and it affects all member types. A month or so ago, I blogged about the future of Ubersuggest and how there will still be free plans along with paid ones. But as you probably noticed, the free plan wasn’t as generous as you were hoping for. And with Coronavirus growing at a rapid pace and affecting so many people and businesses, I thought I would do my part and help small businesses out. Because if I help you grow a bit more without spending money, hopefully, you won’t have to lay off any people and, ideally, you will even be able to hire a few more people. So today, I have made Ubersuggest “more free” and over the next week, it will become even more free. What does that mean? Let me break it down for you… …

Gina McCarthy explains why office chit-chat is vital to an organization’s success

{ object.primary_image.title }}

“Those side conversations are not a waste of time,” says McCarthy, who is currently the head of the Natural Resources Defense Council. When we first got started in this [pandemic], there was almost no separation between work and home. . . . We lost those separations where you just stop, sit down, and have dinner. The one habit that I’ve always had is that I don’t talk about work when I’m at home, period. Through eight years [as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency] in the Obama administration, I just didn’t. I don’t think my husband knew what I was doing for a living until I was in the Obama administration, because then he could read some things in the news, and it’d be like, “Oh, you’re doing this?” I had three kids in three years. My job was to be home when I’m home. And when I’m working, …
