Be Informed and InformMy name is Tomás. Currently, I curate Hispanic/Latino news on:
- Facebook general interest and culture
- Linkedin more business-oriented
- Twitter the full stream (most comprehenvise)
- Google+ not quite the full stream but close
- Pinterest great images
- Please share liberally for the more we spread the knowledge the better for everyone.
PLEASE NOTE that once HispanicTips was the premier news service of it's kind. Now due to the lack of funding, the site now is dormant. I hope to one day soon to again produce my expert reports and email newsletter. See the 'Why We Need HispanicTips' section below for more information.
Why Be Informed and Inform
It is a Hispanic Demographic Tsunami!
Hispanics in 2013 will reach 55 million – not including Puerto Rico. Between 2013 and 2018 an average of 1,483,609 Hispanic per year will be added to the U.S. population. By 2018 (in five short years), about 19% of the U.S. population will be of Hispanic origin (62.5 million people) accounting for nearly 60% of growth during that period. The wave has already hit and there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that can stop it. By 2050, Hispanic could be as high as 30% of the U.S. population.
This demographic tsunami will continue to impact all facets of our society such as culture, religion, the economy, health, education and politics. I don't really like saying it but we are now being targeted, wooed and strategized over by some of the smartest forward-thinking people in the country because they understand the numbers and how they are growing. We already have $1 trillion in spending power (that is a lot of zeros - $1,000,000,000,000!) and played a pivotal role in the 2012 Presidential Election. Close your eyes and imagine the future as these number only grow.
Will you be ready? Is your organization ready?
It would behoove every organization, business and government entity as well as those employed or elected by them to stay informed about this growing, diverse and vibrant group of people. In fact, I say that it is IMPERATIVE TO STAY INFORMED about this dynamic and diverse shift that is sweeping the nation right now and a big part of the future.
Why Trust HispanicTips Service
With eight years of experience I am an expert and leader in curating Hispanic news and information to keep you easily informed. I created the world's largest Hispanic/Latino news archive with over 115,000 posts dating back to 2005 (now offline). I have also summarized the news in my newsletters and reports over a 1,000 times providing an easy way to stay informed and empowered. In other words, I really am an EXPERT and have the track record to prove it.
Many people TRUST my service. This site has already touched the lives of 4.5 million people and many of my subscribers are professors, journalists, politicans, professionals as well as activists, parents, students and regular people. My readers always say it best: "love it," "addictive," "useful," "great," and "invaluable." Check out some Readers' Quotes and Testimonials. Remember, the more of us that are informed the better for all.
Why We Need HispanicTips
When it comes to being informed and informing we should be proactive and lead the way. Let us put our best foot forward and focus on what could and should be appreciated about what is occurring and what lay ahead. In doing so we should strive to present information and knowledge in ways that are accessible to all, easy to understand and free of influence.
It is my mission to help accomplish this by means of curation and the production of free and easy-to-use reports about what is going on in the Hispanic/Latino world. In fact, I have already been doing this since 2005 and no organization (news or educational) or government agency or business has anything close to the service I am able to provide. It is unique, a thought-leader, free, 99.9% relevant, easy to use, a time saver, a trend spotter, a research tool, expertly curated and comprehensive. If we really want to help, to understand, to create/aid leaders we need power knowledge tools like HispanicTips.
I want to continue providing an excellent service that can be freely used by anyone wanting to be informed and/or inform others. In order to continue, however, I need funding and the help of others to spread the word. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, suggestions or would like to offer support.
