Passive Income – make money while you sleep

“Make money while you sleep” is how passive income streams are generally marketed these days. Sounds like a very attractive prospect doesn’t it, and how hard can it be?

The ‘Official’ content for your people

There is ‘official’ content for your people that is essential, required and legally needed. While Creative Words is of course great at creating content, we’re not qualified to talk about this particular type of ‘official’ content. So, for this final blog in our series we’ve invited HR specialist, Pippa Dennitts of Sagegreen, to share her

Regular engagement

Regular engagement – it isn’t ‘once and done’

When it comes to communicating with your people, it’s important to understand that regular engagement isn’t a ‘once and done’ thing.

People are your greatest asset

People are your greatest asset

As the saying goes, ‘people are your greatest asset’! While it might be an old saying, can you, hand-on-heart, say it’s true in your business? Do you value all of your people, regardless of the position they hold? If you do that’s great, but do you actually show them they’re valued? Scott Adams once described

Planning it out

Managing dynamic content is all in the planning. Or rather, not having a content plan can be so paralysing that it can kill your creativity. Worrying about this morning’s post is so much more stressful than having to come up with something for six weeks ahead. Having plenty of ideas in the hopper really helps take

Taking action backwards

Coming up with great ideas for content feels like a passive process, but, in the world of idea generation, it can sometimes be all about action. Have you ever read The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People By Stephen Covey? If you have, you may know that one of those habits is to begin with
