Quality and Integrity Influence Results and Achievements

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

Today the buzz continues surrounding networking, social media including the traditional marketing tricks or perhaps the old-fashioned way of conducting business. What do these mean to you and your objectives in real life, personal or business / organization and internationally?

Regardless of one’s intent and objectives, it is essential to determine what would be your possible results. By knowing it, you will be able to create impactful techniques that will alleviate favorable results.

The following pointers were put together after speaking from our experts in our international teams, perhaps their insights will help you achieve your goals effectively;

  1. Before joining social media group or attending a networking group that is hosting an event or any type of event;

    1. invest some time to learn about the background of the group if it benefits your intents and purposes
    2. understand who the facilitator and their business
    3. where possible or applicable, have an open mind of learning about others who normally attend the events
  2. People who attend these various events have different needs to accomplish;

    1. listen actively: watch of signals, actions, phrases used, and articulation – you can determine so and so whether it is worth investing additional time or not
    2. rise above those who will try to impose their personal views, these are not the right connections to be with
  3. Create an influencing opportunity; be ready to discuss objectively about your goals in attending the event;

    1. do not give a sales pitch, however share why you are attending with reasons that are in line with the host’s objectives
    2. practice active listening (see item 2.1 above)
  4. Share only with particular individuals the things that are informative yet essential that will influence that person to ask more questions about you and your business;

    1. highlight your competency that are easily understood by the person you are speaking with
    2. use words that are action and concrete oriented
    3. avoid using technical term that will make your listener turn off his/her listening interest
  5. Demonstrate courtesy and professionalism; it will get the same respect and integrity;

    1. share only your business card to someone with equal interest
    2. do not tell someone you call him/her when you think there are no points of interest between your intent and theirs
    3. many smart individuals can decipher behaviors that are respectable and untrustworthy

Hawaii and Illinois will join 14 US States in Welcoming Same-sex Marriage


credits: IdeasN, DavidMcNew-GettyImages,, http://www.accessmaps,

Both the states of Illinois and Hawaii signaled Same-sex Marriage as illustrated by an overwhelming support among each states legislature last Tuesday and Friday respectively. Either of the states will get the 15th or 16th place among US States that legalized Same-sex Marriages. Hawaii is a favorite destination of couples for vacations and special celebrations. Many LGBT community members enjoy the amenities of the Hawaiian island as well.  Advanced Congratulations and Best Wishes to the future Same-sex couples who will marry once their state will sign the initiative into law.  

In October 2013, the State of New Jersey got the 14th State that recognized Same-sex Marriage.

The States of Maine, Maryland and Washington were the first states that ratified same-sex marriage rights through citizens voting in November 2012.

Gay Binational Couples Allowed Live in US

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said that the Department will now allow U.S. citizens to petition for their same-sex couples just like other married couples.

EILE Magazine

In light of yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling on DOMA and Prop. 8, the United States Government has already started receiving applications for spousal visas by same-sex couples, where one of the partners is a non-US citizen.

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said that the Department will now allow U.S. citizens to petition for their same-sex couples just like other married couples.

Same Sex Marriage Equality is a Recognition of Loving & Caring Relationships Among Individuals

The US Supreme Court has issued its ruling on two controversial issues that divided Americans for many years.

In June 26, 2013, the American LGBT Citizens gained equal respect, rights and privileges to their counterparts in the American Society within the Federal Level of government.   The Supreme Court Judges removed the second class classification that was provided to the LGBT Citizens and recognized all Same-Sex Marriages in all states that allowed marriages, as equal to their counterparts among heterosexuals.

“This ruling is a victory for couples who have long fought for equal treatment under the law; for children whose parents’ marriages will now be recognized, rightly, as legitimate; for families that, at long last, will get the respect and protection they deserve; and for friends and supporters who have wanted nothing more than to see their loved ones treated fairly and have worked hard to persuade their nation to change for the better” – Pres Obama

“DOMA is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment,” “The federal statue is invalid” wrote Justice Kennedy.

A New York City immigration judge, Barbara Nelson, immediately adjourned Brooks’ deportation hearing after reading the Supreme Court ruling, specifically section 3 of DOMA which recognized only marriages between a man and a woman and granted federal benefits to such marriages. By striking down Section 3, the Supreme Court has allowed same-sex couples to receive more than 1,000 federal benefits and entitlements linked to marriage status.

It’s not just a generation gap that explains the profound shift, pollsters are discovering — even some older Americans are changing their minds about gay marriage, as are citizens in rural areas, from religious backgrounds and in traditionally conservative jurisdictions.

All Five Justices who demonstrated their decision in removing the discriminatory parts of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) will be remembered in the annals of history. They stood for the people who were being discriminated by such Law, that was signed in 1996 by then President Bill Clinton, of which he recently expressed regret and advocated the Supreme Court’s invalidation.

President Obama and his administration will be appreciated forever by Same-Sex Marriages including their families, friends and communities.

Where do we go from here?

In addition to our rich US History, today it illustrated that we have achieved another significant level of respect and dignity – Marriage Equality. While everyone do not agree to the Supreme Court Ruling, it is important to celebrate the correction of a wrong doing. The most important is the federal recognition of the same-sex marriages that exist within communities, will now have equal treatment with the heterosexual marriages. Same-Sex Spouses are now publicly documented in any legal documentations for both federal and state (where same-sex marriage is allowed) governments.



“So we welcome today’s decision, and I’ve directed the Attorney General to work with other members of my Cabinet to review all relevant federal statutes to ensure this decision, including its implications for Federal benefits and obligations, is implemented swiftly and smoothly.” – President Obama

A Salute to Everyone involved, who participated hard in this discrimination fight. Prayers to the souls of those who were discriminated, lost their lives and did not see today’s invalidation of DOMA.
