How To: Make People Think You’re A Bigger Deal Than You Actually Are

Get a fake assistant: I mean, who really knows if “your name + asst @gmail.com” actually goes to your assistant or to you? Have “your assistant” schedule with their assistant. Or, even better than Gmail, snag your own domain name and redirect your mail through that account.

Make GoDaddy your friend: Okay seriously — get your domain. Or a variation of your name if that’s not available. It’s usually around $10-$20 per domain (assuming your name isn’t Madonna) and about $10 for 5 email addresses. That’s plenty for you and your “assistant” @yourname.com.

Grasshopper: We love this service because it makes any roaming cell phone look like it’s connected to a big fancy phone system. For around $10 per month, you can link multiple cell phones to the same “landline,” which is easily managed online.

FedEx for business cards: Now that you have your domain name and fancy phone line, spring for business cards. It’s easy to do with the plug-and-chug biz card creator on FedEx’s website. Spring for the slightly more expensive premium paper ones — after all, your “faking it ’til you make it” perception is so worth it.

Uber for car service: Once your “assistant” has set up your meetings and you’re armed with your business cards, get this easy, text-on-the-go car service to pick you up as you’re walking out. It’s about the same price as a cab and gives off a “big ass deal” vibe without more coin.

Meetings in hotel lobbies: Okay, so let’s be serious, you don’t have a real assistant or an office, but setting up meetings in high-end hotel lobbies is a great way to go for glam office space on the cheap. Get a carafe of coffee in the lounge and set up camp for meetings bootcamp — it’s classier than Starbucks.

Self publicize!
Whatever you do, you’re an expert at that. Get your name out there by pitching yourself through free PR sites like HARO and Muckrack, which allow journalists to post queries for the stories they are working on. Get a mention and a quote out there and have your “assistant” email it to the last meeting you had in the lobby of the Four Seasons and whamo! You become the bigger deal people perceived you to be all along!

Being overweight or obese can be detrimental to your health. It is not advisable to have excess fat in the abdominal cavity because it can lead to some health issues. Getting your dream body will not be easy and you need to make some sacrifices to your diet. You will also need to turn a blind eye to some fatty foods.

If you’re ready to get rid of the belly fat, then stay put as Information Nigeria brings you some important tips that will help.

1. Avoid sugar and carbonated drinks

Did you know that consuming sugary substances like coke, fanta can lead to weight gain and a number of health problems like high blood pressure?. This is due to the high fructose content found in added sugars. Taking sugar-filled drinks may slow your metabolism and this in turn can make it harder for your body to burn fat. Fructose can only be metabolized by your liver. When you consume too much, you push your liver to its limit and it becomes overloaded, then it turns the fructose into fat and it ends up getting stored in your belly. To avoid putting yourself from risk, you should cut back on foods and drinks that contain huge amounts of sugar.

 

2. You also have to forgo junk foods like meat pie, cakes, rolls, candies, burgers, ice cream and cookies. You also need to do away with heavy foods like eba, akpu, pounded yam, rice among others. Switch up your eating habits and opt for a more balanced-diet if you want to burn your belly fat. Avoid consuming refined carbs like bread, pizza, potation chips etc. You should also stay away from processed and heavy foods because they contribute to stubborn belly fat. You should choose to eat proteinous foods like fish, eggs, and milk. starch contains fat, sugar and salt. They help a person feel fuller so you don’t end up looking for something to munch on after eating. It basically keeps hunger at bay.

3. Eat the right amount of fruits, vegetables, fibrous foods and whole grains – You can add vegetables, fruits and whole grains to your weight loss diet. They provide essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and other substances that are good for your body. Examples of fibre rich foods include; beans, broccoli, avocados, apples, oatmeal brown rice and whole grain bread.

4. Try to incorporate exercise into your daily or weekly routine – Exercise helps to speed up your metabolism and helps you shed weight. The bitter truth is that wearing just waist trainers and staying put in one position will not make you lose that stubborn belly fat. You should hit the gym.

5 Reduce alcohol intake – Excess intake of alcohol also leads to a host of health problems especially the build-up of fat in the belly area. Have you ever noticed that those who drink alcohol, especially men, often develop ‘pot-bellies’. Alcoholic drinks like beer provide your body with calories and very little nutrients. It can also increase your appetite. Replace the alcoholic drinks with water or alternate with low calorie, non-alcoholic beverages. Too much alcohol can cause liver damage and other serious health problems.

6. Try out apple cider vinegar – Apple cider vinegar is made in a two-step fermentation process. It is obtained from apples that have been crushed, distilled and fermented. Acetic acid is the main active component of apple cider vinegar. It is safe for consumption in small quantities and can be taken as a supplement. Do not also consume it straight from the bottle or in its pure form. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons to water before you drink. You can also add honey or lemon. It is best to drink it before your meals.
