Who I Follow

This week’s #followfriday spot is shining on Komeka Joseph. Komeka works in Metro Atlanta as a Universal Branch Consultant at a major bank.

What inspired you to choose your career path? I’ve always wanted to help people and what better industry than banking? It’s allowed me to help adults and kids as well as the community I live in. I get to teach financial responsibility to those around me and watch their growth firsthand.

My favorite quote would have to be Failure has happened to everyone that has done something incredible
- Matt Morton

My favorite movie is Coming to America

My favorite tweet is @AdamMGrant: The most inspiring people aren’t those who climbed straight to the top. They’re the ones who overcame bumps and falls along the way.

The best advice I have received is Best piece of advice; “your personal brand should tell the story of your character. It should also encompass your knowledge and expertise as a professional in your industry” ~ Jacqueline Twillie

#FOLLOWFRIDAY SPECIAL EDITION

#FOLLOWFRIDAY SPECIAL EDITION
This week I decided to switch things up a bit and suggest three apps to follow. I’m totally obsessed with all three!

1. Uber- It’s the easiest way to catch a ride from one part of town to the next. It’s your personal driver connected by a super user-friendly app.
2. LearnVest – Staying on top of budget on the go is super easy with this app. What makes it even better is that the articles about money & life that you can read on the go!
3. Evernote – Who doesn’t love Evernote? It’s my favorite notebook on the go. I use Evernote to capture my awesome ideas, keep track of task, and I even use it in church for sermon notes.


Use my Uber code, qt2is, and get $20 off your first Uber ride. Redeem it at uber.com/invite/qt2is.

Thank You.

It’s a simple phrase that many of us have known for as long as we have been able to talk. Yet due to the hustle and bustle of life we sometimes forget the impact of saying Thank You.

I recently requested assistance on a project, at the end of the conversation I said thank you for your time. They were blown away and came to me seeking to know why I said thanks. It turns out that after many years of helping people I was the first to use those two words.

To make a long story short the conversation ended with the person telling me that if I ever needed anything, big or small the door to their office was open.

Remember to say thank you, it will lead to so much more.
