5 Tastiest Summer Snacks

By JIFU Success, JIFUlife No Comments

Here at JIFU, we are excited for all the adventures that summer brings. Keeping this in mind, it is important to stay energized and healthy, no matter where your exploration takes you. We have compiled some of our favorite snacks for the days to come! Let us know if you have any suggestions for the community in the comments.

Garden Salsa

There is nothing like fresh vegetables to kick off your summer the right way. Combine all your favorites: tomatoes, jalapenos, onion, cilantro, and whatever else suits your fancy to create the perfect salsa. Serve with your favorite chips as a precursor to your dinner. This salsa also doubles as a fresh and healthy snack for those beautiful summer evenings.

Fresh Fruit

Summer and fresh fruit go hand and hand. Stock up and add the pre-cut fruit to containers that can be taken out when the moment is right. Some of our tried-and-true favorites include strawberries, kiwis, and watermelon. These can be great additions to any drink and can help spice up the main dish with ease.

Smoothies

An easy follow-up to raw fruit is, of course, smoothies. This can be a great way to get your daily fruits and veggies. Including some leafy greens, like spinach and kale, will add nutrients to your smoothie in an easy-to-consume way. Plus, they can be fun to make with kids and friends on a hot summer day!

Trail-Mix

The best thing about making your own granola is that you can add whatever you want to it! If you are not happy with the regular nuts, raisins, and M&M’s, feel free to get creative! Add some marshmallows, animal cracks, or pretzels. Throw some in a plastic bag for a hike, or add some to your arsenal of pantry snacks.

Granola

An easy follow-up to raw fruit is, of course, smoothies. This can be a great way to get your daily fruits and veggies. Including some leafy greens, like spinach and kale, will add nutrients to your smoothie in an easy-to-consume way. Plus, they can be fun to make with kids and friends on a hot summer day!

Recession Proof: Fact or Ficition

By JIFU Success, JIFUlife No Comments

We’ve all heard mutterings of industries that are “recession-proof”, but is it just a rumor with no merit? Let’s explore the industries and markets that have been able to thrive through historically difficult economies.

Essential Industries (Investopedia)

Food + Grocery

While this is a huge industry, grocers are a necessary part of our society. As we saw in 2020, stores were protected and even required to stay open. According to Investopedia: “Besides discount stores like Dollar Tree and Walmart, which are major grocers, several other companies that make or sell food also made the list. They include packaged food company General Mills, Inc., grocery store chain Kroger Co. (KR), and also restaurant chains McDonald’s Corp.”

Freight

As the market continues to become more internationalized, freight and logistics increase in importance. A few corporations that saw positive returns during the 2008 recession include:
Old Dominion Freight
Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies
C.H. Robinson Worldwide

An industry being recession-proof is not black or white and relies on the grey area that lies in the context of the economy of the time. If you are interested in seeing which industries and companies sustained growth in the 2020 pandemic, click the button below.

Understanding Instagram’s Algorithm

By JIFU Success No Comments

Instagram’s algorithm is what controls who sees the things you post and when they see them. Basically, it is the all-holy omnipresent god of one of the most popular social media platforms in the world. 

What is an Algorithm

 Technically speaking, an algorithm is “the set of rules a machine (and especially a computer) follows to achieve a particular goal”. This does not necessarily only apply to machinery or computers but in the case of social media, it does. 

The goal of Facebook’s (who owns Instagram) algorithm is very simple: Keep you on their website or app as long as possible. Despite the goal being obvious, their method is not. This is purposeful because the company does not want to give away its most powerful tool for capturing the attention of consumers.

The Algorithm’s Impact

There are five main parts of Instagram that are impacted and manipulated by the algorithm: feed posts, stories, the Explore page, IGTV videos, and Reels. Our main focus in this article will be on feed posts because that is the most popular way to distribute content.

First: a little background. For the vast majority of Instagram’s life, users saw posts based in reverse chronological order. Then, in 2016, the corporation changed its methods, citing usability errors.

Understanding the coding that goes into managing 1 billion+ user’s content can help you maximize Instagram as a tool and set yourself apart from everyone else. Instagram claims there are 6 key factors that influence its algorithm for feed posts:

  • Interest
  • Relationship
  • Timeliness
  • Frequency
  • Following
  • Usage

Maximizing the Six Key Factors

Straight from the horse's mouth: These are the key ingredients to becoming the Instagram mogul of your dreams. Remember, these things take time!

Interest

One of the most important things utilized by Instagram is the data collected by their software as it relates to interests. This is collected through information like who you follow, the posts you like, the people who most frequently like your posts, and posts that you search for.

Relationship

The next piece of data that the algorithm uses is what accounts you seem to interact with and have a priority relationship with. For example, Instagram will show you posts from accounts that you have searched for recently, tagged in your own posts, and generally interacted with on a regular basis.

Timeliness

While Instagram has strayed away from chronological order, the algorithm is still likely to show recent posts. They may not appear in order of when they were posted, but time is still a factor.

Frequency

Users that are Instagram lovers and frequent scrollers are more likely to see something that was just posted than inactive users. It is best to make sure that your follower base is mostly active users because this will increase post-interaction.

Following

It is best to make sure that your follower base is mostly active users because this will increase post-interaction.

Usage

It is best to make sure that your follower base is mostly active users because this will increase post-interaction.

These are just a few simple tips to get started growing your Instagram following and increase your post-interaction. Be sure to leave a comment letting us know if you want similar tips for IG Stories, Reels, and IGTV videos!

Are Superfoods Really Super?

By JIFU Success, Personal Development, Uncategorized No Comments

Superfoods: trendy, healthy, and beautiful to look at. But do they live up to the hype? What’s the big deal about some fruits and veggies? Superfoods are potent sources of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and other nutrients. Because of this, foods that fall under this category are, indeed, super! 

What are Superfoods?

Many berries and dark leafy greens are thought to be superfoods: high in nutrients and low in calories. They are often called superfoods because they pack a mighty punch when it comes to delivering the nutrition that your body needs to operate at a high level. Some of the most popular superfoods include dark leafy greens (kale and spinach), and all your favorite berries. Other fan favorites include garlic, wheatgrass, beets and beet juice, turmeric, Brazil nuts, and barley. 

Dark Leafy Greens

Berries

Beets

Green Tea/Herbs

Best Benefits

As mentioned before, superfoods have a high nutrient density. These foods are often rich in vitamins A, C, E, and K and many B vitamins. Additionally, dark leafy greens like spinach and kale are high in fiber and water content. These components promote a healthy and regular digestive tract.

Consuming foods that are high in antioxidants helps fight free radicals that can damage tissues in your body. It can be hard to take in all the nutrients your body needs in an everyday diet, but superfoods can help you get there. 

Healthy Diet

Shy away from processed foods and foods that void of color. Try your best to include as many colors into your diet, and the chances are that at least one of them will end up being a superfood! Incorporating superfoods into your everyday diet will increase the sustainability of your health. 

Sprinkle shredded leafy greens in soups or throw some blueberries into your breakfast to start the day in a healthy way. There are endless ways to incorporate superfoods into the diet that you already have!

If you are having a hard time buying fresh fruits and vegetables, we have a simple and easy way to consume 23 superfoods in one single swig!

Most People Are Addicted to THIS and Don’t Even Know it

By JIFU Success, Personal Development No Comments

One addictive substance plagues nearly all of humanity. It is something that is consumed on a daily basis, and most of the time people do not even know they’re doing it. It’s not illegal, controversial, or even uncommon. What is it?

 

The substance is sugar, and it is in most food that Americans consume every day. The World Health Organization recommends that the average person limit their sugar consumption to no more than six teaspoons or 25 grams of sugar per day for women and nine teaspoons per day for men. Despite this, the average American consumes 17 teaspoons of sugar every day, far exceeding the suggested portion. 

It is difficult to cut out sugar because it is snuck into food products that aren’t necessarily sweet. For example, things like bread, tomato sauce, crackers, and energy bars generally have quite a bit of sugar. UCSF estimates that a leading brand of yogurt has 7 teaspoons of sugar in one single serving! Additionally, sugar is extremely addictive. Consumers become addicted to sugar without even realizing what is happening. 

The accidental overconsumption of sugar is a major contributing factor to many people’s unexplainable weight gain. There are several things that you can do to reduce your sugar intake. 

  1. Be more aware of the ingredients in the food that makes up your diet. 

  2. Exercise more often

  3. Say YES to a little help

RealW8* is a supplement that helps users control their sugar cravings because everyone could use a little help in defeating this all-too-common addiction. With its three proprietary ingredients, RealW8 stops that little urge to have just one more right in its tracks. 

Even better, you can buy it exclusively on JIFUshop.com for a newly discounted price!

Basic Meditation Tricks for Motivation

By JIFU Success 2 Comments

To be successful in any industry, you need to have a single-minded approach to your business and professional goals. Even when it comes to your personal life, true happiness often misses people who lack dedication to creating healthy habits. Meditation can help those who practice it focus on what is most important to them, and ultimately take the steps to make it happen. 

Successful people like Oprah Winfrey, Bill Ford, and Jeff Weiner are just a few examples of successful people who attribute their continued success, at least partially, to mediation. Weiner is the CEO of one of the most successful professional social networks, LinkedIn, and has often be quoted touting the powers of mediation. 

Part of the key to time management is carving out time to think, as opposed to constantly reacting

Rise With the Sun

Most reputable sources claim that meditation is most effective when done in the morning, at a consistent time. This way, you start your day off with positive energy and a clear head, ready to tackle the day ahead of you. As another bonus, you won’t have to worry about fitting it in after your busy day.

Three

Start Small and Limit Expectations

A common mistake that people make when starting out with meditation is expecting too much from themselves. Start by meditating for just a few minutes at a time, rather than half an hour. Practice makes perfect and once you can remain focused for a minute at a time, increase your challenge. Do not be hard on yourself! Meditation should be a time where you allow yourself to make mistakes and try again.

Four

Set a Goal

While it’s important to start small, be sure to go into your meditation practice with a goal. Some people claim that choosing a few positive affirmations to focus on is helpful. Professional goals and personal goals can also play into your calm thought during this time. Often, meditaters strive to empty their mind of invasive thoughts, but this is a tall order for a beginner.

Comment below a few positive words that you might focus on during your first meditation practice! Have you tried this good habit before? What are a few tips you might offer to a first timer?

Encouraging Your Downline

By JIFU Success No Comments

A huge part of affiliate marketing is managing and encouraging your downline.

Give Recognition

Sometimes all an unmotivated worker or salesman needs is recognition for their hard work. As a leader, your job is to congratulate the best on your team for exceptional contributions in return on investment. This serves two purposes. The person who receives recognition will be more likely to continue their desirable actions. Additionally, team members who are not performing well may start modeling themselves after the best among them. Recognition creates motivation that sometimes lacks from even the best downline.

Develop a Management Style

As a leader of your team, everyone will be looking to you for information and inspiration. As such, you must master the art of management. Curate your own management style, perhaps by modeling it after a leader who you admire. This will allow you to be a reliable resource for the members of your downline. It is easy to get discouraged when you feel ill-managed, eventually leading to a decrease in productivity.

Increase Communication

Staying in touch with your downline will help your bottom line in the end. Brushing up on your communication skills will make you a more effective leader and salesman. Being able to convey your message clearly to your team is key to activating your team into success. Along with this, any good marketer has to continually update their communication skills to keep up with the changing communication channels.

Keep Focus

While the most motivated on your team will likely remain focused, this is not always the case with the average person. It can seem like boredom and loss of interest is nearly inevitable, especially if someone thinks that their plans are not working out the way they intended them to. It is your responsibility to do your best to make sure that this does not happen. By keeping connected with your downline, you can get ahead of these sorts of issues.

These are only a few tips to help you motivate and encourage your downline. It is also important to realize, however, that sometimes certain people are not cut out for the hard but rewarding life of an entrepreneur. It takes a strong leader to cultivate a team of people who are as work-oriented as you are!
